  • Publication number: 20160075308
    Abstract: A first device for a system for connecting a blade to an arm of a windscreen wiper is disclosed. The first device includes means of articulation configured to interact with complementary means of a second device of the connecting system, in order to define an axis of articulation of the first device in relation to the second device, which is an axis of articulation of the blade in relation to the arm. The first device includes first means of abutment configured to interact with the second device to maintain the first device in relation to the second device in translational movement in the axis of articulation, in a first direction, and second means of abutment configured to interact with the second device to maintain the first device in relation to the second device in translational movement in the axis of articulation, in a second direction counter to the first direction.
