  • Patent number: 8479900
    Abstract: A bracket assembly for mounting to a piece of expandable luggage has a base, first and second sliding members, and a lever. The base has slots, and a plurality of recesses are located between the slots and have a substantially flat sidewall. When the lever is in a locked position, a coupling portion is positioned at least partially within one of the recesses, and the notch engages the sidewall preventing the lever and sliding members from moving parallel with the slot. When the lever is in an unlocked position, stopping pegs prevent the lever from rotating more than 180 degrees relative to the locked position, and the lever and sliding members are free to move relative to the base and translationally parallel with the slots. The lever and sliding members are moveable to and from a plurality of expansion positions.

    Abstract: A mounting apparatus for fixing a circuit board having a position block comprises an enclosure having a bottom plate; a first mounting member having a first securing portion, and a second mounting member having a first position portion and a first mounting portion. A first through hole is defined on the bottom plate. A first depressed portion is defined around the first through hole on the bottom plate. A first fixing hole is defined on the first securing portion. The first position portion is received in the first depressed portion to prevent the first position portion rotating relative to the bottom plate. The first mounting portion passes through the first through hole to be fixed in the first fixing hole. The bottom plate is fixed between the first securing portion and the first position portion. The position block engages the position slot to fix the circuit board on the enclosure.

    Abstract: A tie clip includes a strap body formed of a first material. The strap body has a first and second end, a strap retention member, a plurality of teeth disposed on the strap body, and a securing member. The strap body also includes sealing member that is formed of a second material that is different from the first material. The second material is directly chemically bonded to the first material. The first end of the strap body is received in a unidirectional manner in the strap retention member so as to form a loop that fixedly holds at least one object such that the object is prevented from having lateral movement through the loop. When the securing member is fastenably secured within a hole of a mounting structure, the sealing member sealingly engages against the mounting structure surrounding the hole to prevent environmental element intrusion therethough.
