  • Patent number: 10807580
    Abstract: Techniques of braking a trailer with a trailer braking system. In one example, a controller receives a brake request from a vehicle to apply the trailer braking system, receives a plurality of wheel speed signals from a plurality of wheel speed sensors, and determines a velocity of the trailer based on the plurality of wheel speed signals. The controller determines a wheel speed of one of a plurality of wheels based on one of the plurality of wheel speed signals, compares the velocity of the trailer to the wheel speed to obtain a difference value, and determines that one of the plurality of wheels is unstable when the difference value exceeds a threshold. A braking signal to reduce a braking force on one of the plurality of wheels is generated when one of the plurality of wheels is unstable and when the brake request is received.

  • Publication number: 20200070020
    Abstract: An end-cap assembly for a ball bat or other sporting-good implement includes one or more removable weights, so that the weight of the end cap—and of the ball bat—may be adjusted. The one or more weights may reside in a receiving space or recess in an end-cap cup of the end-cap assembly. A fastener removably attaches the one or more weights to the end-cap cup. In some embodiments, the fastener may include threads that engage threads in a bore in the end-cap cup.

  • Publication number: 20180334152
    Abstract: A method and system for braking a trailer with a trailer braking system including receiving, at a controller, a brake request from a vehicle. The controller receives wheel speed signals from wheel speed sensors on the trailer. The controller determines a velocity of the trailer based on the wheel speed signals and determines a wheel speed based on one of the wheel speed signals. The controller compares the velocity of the trailer to the wheel speed to obtain a difference value. The controller determines that one of the wheels is unstable when the difference value exceeds a threshold. When unstable and when the brake request is received, the controller generates a braking signal to reduce the braking force on the one of the plurality of wheels.

  • Patent number: 9820554
    Abstract: A lid of a backpack is disclosed having a compartment in which a standalone daysack having a shoulder strap is arranged. The compartment is transformable from a first state in which the lid is mountable to a backpack to a second state in which the standalone daysack is usable independently from the backpack. In the first state, the standalone daysack and its shoulder strap are stored within the compartment. In the second state, the compartment is inverted by turning the inside out so that the shoulder strap is usable for carrying the standalone daysack.

  • Publication number: 20070261287
    Abstract: An invention uniting a gun sling and a bipod into one unit. The gun sling remains an active sling for transporting a firearm. The bipod, built into said sling, supports the firearm for increased accuracy. The bipod is a one handed, quick and easy setup. The bipod is comprised of multiple adjustable support legs, that when collasped are stored inside a stretchable nylon pouch, that is securely attached to a gun sling. By pulling downward on a thumb loop, that is located a bottom edge of said pouch, the support legs will automatically deploy into a supporting position thereby giving a shooter an adjustable pivotal support bipod. Support legs are then retracted by flip folding the legs sections back into said pouch preparing for the transporting of the firearm by the attached gun sling. Generally bipods are attached to the exterior of the firearm which will decrease the accuracy of the firearm and causes safety issues.

  • Patent number: 6149210
    Abstract: A hood latch assembly (10) has a housing (14) having a mouth (13). A ratchet (16) is pivotally mounted within the housing (14) to cooperate with the mouth (13) to pivot between an open, a secondary closed and a primary closed condition for receiving, engaging and cinching a keeper of a striker (80). The ratchet (16) is biased to the open condition. A pivotally mounted primary pawl (18) is biased for engagement with the ratchet (16) to releasably retain the ratchet (16) in the primary closed condition. A pivotally mounted secondary pawl (62) is biased for engagement with the ratchet (16) to releasably retain the ratchet (16) in the secondary closed condition. The secondary pawl (62) has a release lever (20) which rotates between a deployed position and a retracted position. As the ratchet (16) engages the striker (80), the ratchet (16) will rotate in a latching sense from the open condition to the secondary closed condition.
