  • Patent number: 6695143
    Abstract: A package for a product includes a base plate on which the product is disposed, and a bridge disposed on the base plate in overlying relationship to a first portion of the product. A lid is disposed in overlying relationship to a second portion of the product and is secured to the base plate by a sliding connection which guides the lid for limited sliding movement parallel to the base plate to expose the second portion of the product. The sliding connection constrains the lid against dislodgment from the base plate in a direction perpendicular to the base plate. An intermediate plate is disposed between the base plate and the lid and is arranged to prevent the sliding movement of the lid. The intermediate plate is formed of a tearable material, such as cardboard, wherein tearing of the intermediate plate releases the lid for the sliding movement.

  • Patent number: 6253455
    Abstract: A handsaw includes a blade having a toothed cutting edge pivoted to a handle. The handle includes a frame and a tooth protecting element. The tooth protecting element is pivoted to the frame to be swung between a working position and a retracted position. Each of the frame and the tooth protecting element includes a gap, whereby when the tooth protecting element is in a retracted position, the gaps are aligned to receive the blade. When the blade is in a retracted state, a portion of the cutting edge is exposed to enable purchasers or users to know what type of cutting edge is provided on the blade without having to move the blade to a working position.
