    Abstract: A wall mounting bracket assists in mounting equipment to a wall. The wall mounting bracket includes a plate, a post, and a sliding nut. At least a portion of the post extends outwardly from the surface of the plate. The plate is coupled to a stud or other mounting device positioned within the wall behind the sheetrock. The post includes an equipment mounting section and a spacer. The spacer is positioned between the equipment mounting section and the plate and accommodates different wall thicknesses. The bottom surface of the sliding nut is slidably and securely positionable along the top surface of the equipment mounting section. Different types of wall-mounted equipment is coupled to the sliding nut and the equipment mounting section of the wall mounting bracket. Use of the wall mounting bracket allows the equipment to be mounted to the wall without an exposed flange and preserve structural integrity.

  • Publication number: 20120112022
    Abstract: A wall mount hanger includes a hanging section and a sleeve section. The hanging section is protrusively disposed on a wall surface and has a first arc surface and a stop portion. The first arc surface has plural protruding teeth, and the stop portion is protrusively disposed on the first arc surface. The sleeve section has a first surface and a second surface lower than the first surface. A second arc surface and a slot are disposed between the first surface and the second surface. The second arc surface has plural protruding teeth. The protruding teeth of the second arc surface are engaged with the protruding teeth of the first arc surface. Since the sleeve section and the hanging section are engaged with each other through the protruding teeth, the sleeve section can be rotated fixed to a required angle relative to the hanging section.

  • Publication number: 20120104203
    Abstract: A holder having a baseplate with a tang extending rearwardly therefrom, a plurality of openings for receiving fasteners and a plurality of legs extending from the baseplate, the tang having a Rockwell B hardness of between about 80 and about 110 proximate the baseplate. The tang may be being heat treated or work hardened to harden the tang and facilitate its detachment for non-friable substrate applications. Work hardening may be accomplished, for example, by heating and quenching the tang to increase both its hardness and its brittleness to a level that allows the tang to be broken off with an impact force but not when inserted into a friable substrate so that the holder retains greater functionality.

    Abstract: A clip includes a fixing portion and a holding portion. The fixing portion includes an elastic piece elastically abutting against a front surface of a panel; a support pillar extending toward an attachment hole from the elastic piece; a clamping piece protruding from an end portion of the support pillar, including an external form so as to be capable of passing through the attachment hole, and abutting against a back surface of the panel when the clamping piece is slid in one direction after passing through the attachment hole; and an operating piece provided in one portion of the elastic piece. The clamping piece is configured so that a distance from a front end portion at a front in a sliding direction to an edge portion of the attachment hole positioned in front of the sliding direction is longer than a sliding amount.
