And Aperture Therein Alignable With Another Spaced Aperture Of Means Patents (Class 24/707.4)
  • Patent number: 10823215
    Abstract: A connecting assembly for connecting boards includes a rod member and a buckle member. The rod member includes a head portion, a rod body and a tip portion which are integrally formed and connected in sequence. By using an engaging hole to engage with an annular engaging groove, the connection of the boards is more firm due to a circumferential joint. Besides, the buckle member is provided with a cross-shaped groove, which makes it easier for the user to adjust the direction when in use. The structure design is reasonable and more convenient for use.

  • Patent number: 9700108
    Abstract: The coupler includes a male coupler formed with an annular groove, and a female coupler into which the male coupler is detachably inserted. The female coupler includes a first body part downwardly open, a second body part upwardly open, being rotatably connected with the first body part, and defining a hollow space together with the first body part, and a guide housed in the space, and supporting the male coupler inserted into the female coupler. The guide is composed of a material having elasticity, and exerts an elastic force on the first body part and the second body part such that they are closed to each other.

  • Patent number: 9166304
    Abstract: A screwless quick connection system for connecting a lead connector to a generator of an active implantable medical device is shown and described. The connector head includes a housing receiving a plug of a lead connector. A mechanism for locking the plug into the housing is provided by a U-folded leaf spring. Each branch of the U is provided with a respective hole sized so that the plug passes through the holes on both branches when it is inserted into the housing. The blade is deformable between a free state, in the absence of plug, and a deformed state, with the plug inserted therein. In the free state, both holes are misaligned, while in the deformed state they are aligned. In this way, an edge of both holes exerts by reaction a radial stress force against the smooth outer surface of the plug inserted therein.

  • Publication number: 20100077576
    Abstract: A rotatable interlocking pin system to secure a plurality of fabrics together. The system includes a decorative first member, a second decorative member, and a coupling pin for rotatably joining the first and second members together to secure the plurality of fabrics. The first end is rotatably and captively received by the first member's shaft hole, while the second end pierces through the fabrics and is frictionally received by the second member's shaft hole. The members and the coupling pin are free to rotate, thus preventing the fabric from being torn, distorted, or severely damaged by the pin system. The first and second members may be constructed of a variety of decorative or simulative appearances creating coordinating or contrasting members.
