  • Patent number: 10408493
    Abstract: A mounting pad system for securing equipment, such as an HVAC outdoor unit, is provided in the form of a lightweight fillable pad member having securing slots extending from an underside surface to an upperside surface of the pad member. Securing strap assemblies are associated with at least some of the securing slots and are insertable into the latter to secure the equipment therebetween. The pad member contains a filling port on its upper surface and is configured as a molded hollow shell containing a gelling material which, when mixed with water, provides support to reduce deflection of the pad member caused by the equipment secured to the pad, prevents damage to the pad that would otherwise be caused by the expansion of internal contents upon freezing and prevents leakage of internal contents of the fillable pad in the event of an unintended breach in the hollow shell.

    Abstract: Disclosed is a jack stand support that is adapted to be positioned under a standard jack stand. The present invention includes a base member having a defined outer and inner perimeter. In one embodiment, the base member is rectangular in shape and includes a rectangular central opening. The outer perimeter of the base member includes an upstanding wall that extends vertically therefrom. The upstanding wall is preferably welded to the base member so that the upstanding wall is perpendicular to the base member and the device is substantially unitary in structure. The upstanding wall is adapted to retain the jack stand on top of the base member so that the jack stand does not shift during use. The base member evenly distributes the weight of the jack stand so that it may be stabilized and prevented from sinking or slipping on the ground.

    Abstract: The claimed invention is a mounting device for an object. The preferred embodiment is as a jewelry device or display device. The mounting device comprises supports and restraints whose surfaces correspond precisely to selected surfaces on the object. Mounting surfaces allow tolerance with regard to interfit with the object. In the jewelry industry, the result is that the interior surfaces of seats in a mounting are the mirror image of facets on a gemstone. This use of reflected geometry in a mounting provides benefits in manufacturing, setting, and usage of a finished article. The mounting may be constructed of one or more than one piece, and those pieces may be permanently or temporarily joined to form the mounting. The mounting may be manufactured by any of several methods subject to a skilled designer's preference, including but not limited to fabrication by manual process, computer-aided design and manufacturing, metal-powder.

  • Patent number: 8902580
    Abstract: A heat dissipation device includes a base and a fastener. The fastener includes a neck portion, a head portion formed at one end of the neck portion, and an engaging portion formed at another opposite end of the neck portion. The base defines a receiving portion through the base. The receiving portion includes an inserting hole and a mounting hole communicating with the inserting hole. The engaging portion extends through the inserting hole from a top of the base to make the neck portion enter the inserting hole. The neck portion is then crushed into the mounting hole from the inserting hole. The engaging portion abuts the bottom side of the base at a periphery of the mounting hole. The head portion abuts the top side of the base at the periphery of the mounting hole.

  • Patent number: 8888185
    Abstract: A motion platform having decoupled two axes adopts four modularized pneumatic bellows configured in an orthogonal arrangement. The pneumatic bellows can be independently controlled to cause the motion platform to be operated in one rotational degree of freedom with a frontward-and-backward swinging or a leftward-and-rightward swinging; or the pneumatic bellows can be synchronously controlled to cause the motion platform operated in two rotational degrees of freedom without being interfered with each other. Thus, the motion platform of the present disclosure is characterized with advantages of simplified mechanism, fewer components, convenient maintenance and reduced cost.
