  • Publication number: 20210156686
    Abstract: A carpenter's, mason's, or plumber's level with an elastic, flexible cord for attachment to a plank, pipe, or workpiece is disclosed. The level has a linear, bar-shaped body with a rectangular cross-section, where portions of the body may be hollow or have recessed openings therein. The level has an elastic cord connected to the body, wherein the cord is stretch-wrapped around a plank, pipe or like workpiece to attach the level thereto for angular tilt measurement. A groove, a contour, a notch, a boss, a ridge, a hole, a recess, a hook, or the like can be used to hold or snare the elastic cord when in use and to store the elastic cord on the level body when not in use. The level body has an opening to receive a bubble vial for angular tilt indication.

  • Publication number: 20200040570
    Abstract: Fire resistant glazing units, processes for the manufacture of such fire resistant glazing units, the use of fire resistant glazing units in construction, and constructions comprising such glazing units. A fire resistant glazing unit may include two panes of glass which are arranged together with a seal to enclose a fire-resistant interlayer. The seal is adapted to breach in the event of a fire causing increased pressure between the panes, releasing pressure before it can build up and cause a pane to break in an unfavourable manner.

  • Patent number: 10458791
    Abstract: A level includes an end cap releasably attached to a level body. The end cap is configured to be inserted in, and withdrawn from, the level body with a sliding fit. Accordingly, the end cap can be withdrawn from the level body simply by squeezing with the fingers of one hand two opposing actuators formed in the end cap against the bias of respective living hinges to release detents from detent apertures formed in opposing side walls of the level body, and then using the same hand to slide the end cap out of the level body without having to touch the level body with either hand.
