The door operates such that, in a closed position, the second panel is extended from an interior of the first panel, the first and second panels cooperate to completely cover an opening defined by the door frame, and the linkage is generally parallel to the plane defined by the door frame. In an open position, the second panel is retracted into the interior of the first panel by operation of the linkage and the first and second panels are nested to reduce a distanced spanned by the panels.

  • Patent number: 9920984
    Abstract: A cooling apparatus is provided in which items to be cooled may be vertically stacked on each other in a state in which the items to be cooled are laid out or laid on their sides. When the items to be cooled are vertically stacked in the cooling apparatus, a problem in that an upper space of the cooling apparatus is not utilized may be solved to efficiently utilize an inside of a refrigerator or a back surface of a door. Also, a problem in that capacity within the refrigerator is reduced when the items to be cooled are horizontally received may be solved.

  • Patent number: 9883267
    Abstract: In a dropped ceiling assembly system elements are provided which include an elongate planar shelf held below an elongate spine. The shelf has lateral edges which can support edges of a ceiling tile resting thereon. This spine is configured to be held in position either adjacent to spines of other elements within a dropped ceiling or from above, such as by suspension wires passing through suspension holes in the spine. A compartment is provided on an underside of the shelf which is sized and shaped to receive and hold at least a portion of a loudspeaker therein. The loudspeaker mounting system is thus integrated into the shelf which also acts to hold ceiling tiles within a dropped ceiling.

  • Patent number: 9733036
    Abstract: Securing mechanisms are provided for various applications. As consistent with one or more embodiments, first and second securing mechanisms respectively couple to a surface and an object to be secured. The first securing mechanism includes a device interface that secures a first portion of a device, and includes a rigid protrusion having a concave surface and a flexible structure coupled to the rigid protrusion and configured and arranged to flexibly secure the device via the concave surface. A first surface interface mitigates movement of the first securing mechanism and the first portion of the securable device relative to a surface. The second securing mechanism includes a device interface that secures a second portion of the securable device relative to the second securing mechanism, and a second surface interface that mitigates movement of the second securing mechanism and the second portion of the securable device, relative to the surface.

  • Patent number: 9579529
    Abstract: Various adaptor configurations are provided that allow newly mandated replacement oxygen modules to replace oxygen generators in the same containers that are currently used in aircraft lavatories. The replacement modules and oxygen generators differ in terms of overall interface dimension, geometries and weights. The adaptors enable replacement modules to be mounted without, or with only minimal, modification of the oxygen containers.

  • Patent number: 9545349
    Abstract: There is provided a bedrail mount (10) for detachably attaching an object (30) to a bed rail (40) of a bed. The bedrail mount comprises a U shaped bracket for positioning over a bedrail. One leg (70) of the U shaped bracket comprises a U shaped recess (20) which, when the bedrail mount rotates, receives the bed rail and prevents the bedrail mount from further rotating and getting detached from the bed rail. The object is attached to the other leg (60) of the U shaped bracket.
