  • Patent number: 11229271
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a locking mechanism (13) comprising a first locking member (11), a second locking member (12), and a biasing member (14) exerting, during operation, a biasing force (FB) on at least the first locking member (11) or the second locking member (12) in a biasing direction (B). The locking mechanism further comprises a guiding structure (32) for mutually guiding the first and second locking members (11, 12), wherein the first locking member (11) comprises a track structure (15) and the second locking member (12) comprises a guided element (16) guided by the track structure (15). The locking mechanism (13) is moved from an un-locked to a locked condition by applying a pushing force to at least one of the first and second locking members (11, 12). The locking mechanism (13) can be moved from the locked to the un-locked condition by applying either a pushing or a pulling force to at least one of the first and second locking members (11, 12).

  • Patent number: 9713876
    Abstract: A shaving head includes at least one cutting unit in which an external cutting member is subjected to a shaving action. The external cutting member is suspended relative to a holder of the shaving head through suspension means. The suspension means includes at least two pivot constructions, wherein one pivot construction enables a member of the suspension means to be pivotable relative to the holder. The other pivot construction enables the external cutting member to be pivotable relative to the suspension member. Furthermore, a pivoting stiffness of a connection of the latter pivot construction is lower than a pivoting stiffness of the first pivot construction. In this manner, good contour following performance is obtained at two levels, in both relatively small and relatively large curvature changing areas.

  • Patent number: 8925209
    Abstract: A cleaning unit (1) is provided for cleaning an interior space (15) of a shaving head (10) of a shaver, which shaving head (10) comprises a movably arranged cutter member (20) for cutting off hairs and a contacting surface (14) for contacting a portion of skin to be shaved, which is provided with a plurality of holes for catching and letting through hairs to 5 be shaved off by means of the cutter member (20). In particular, the cleaning unit (1) comprises separating means (30) for constituting a physical barrier between two portions of an outer surface (13) of the shaving head (10) and for conveying cleaning fluid (41). During a cleaning process, an agitated flow of fluid (41) is realized in the interior space (15) of the shaving head (10) under the influence of a centrifugal pump action which is obtained when 10 the cutter member (20) of the shaving head (10) is in motion.

  • Patent number: 8646467
    Abstract: A shaving kit includes cartridge store for storing at least one spare blade cartridge and a container for storing a shaving fluid like a refreshing or cleaning lotion or a shaving foam. The container includes a volume of the shaving fluid which is sufficient for several series of shaving actions. After at least one shaving action, a blade razor may be coupled to the container to transfer shaving fluid to the blade razor. By transferring shaving fluid to the blade razor, the volume of shaving fluid in the container decreases. The container includes a replacement indicator for indicating a desired replacement of the blade cartridge. The replacement indicator operates in dependence on a volume of shaving fluid transferred from the container.

  • Patent number: 8505205
    Abstract: A personal care system includes an electrical shaver and a cleaning device for cleaning a shaving head. The cleaning device further includes a displacing system for displacing its supporting member relative to a cleaning fluid container from a first position in which the shaving head, when the shaver is supported by the supporting member, is not in contact with the cleaning liquid in the container, to a second position in which the shaving head is at least partially immersed in the cleaning liquid in the container. The cleaning device does not need any pump for displacing the cleaning liquid. Rather, activation of the shaving head that causes, e.g., rotation of a cutting unit, provides a sufficient pumping effect for the cleaning liquid when the shaving head is immersed in the cleaning liquid.
