  • Patent number: 11674617
    Abstract: A tube lock includes a lock housing, a clamp cover, and a tube clamp. The lock housing has a tube compartment having an opening therein. In this regard, the clamp cover mates with the lock housing to provide a barrier over the opening of the tube compartment. The tube clamp has a tube entry along a major surface thereof. A first tube passageway extends from the tube entry into the housing, and a tube receiving channel is coupled to the first tube passageway. The tube clamp also comprises a clamping mechanism having a lever handle, and a tube pinch that is coupled to the lever handle. When the clamp cover is mated with the lock housing, the lever handle of the clamping mechanism is prevented from transitioning from the second position to the first position, thus locking the tube inserted into the tube clamp.

  • Patent number: 11489325
    Abstract: Methods and devices for reducing stress and for increasing the load-bearing capacity of cable racks supporting electrical power and communication conduits and cables having increased versatility for conduit and cable sizes and quantities. Underground devices including rack arms for these applications are desirably made from plastic or composite materials. Rack arms desirably include openings for tying down the conduits and cables atop the arms. While non-metallic materials are designed to withstand environmental stresses, they typically have strength and rigidity properties less than the metallic structures previously used in such applications. Non-metallic rack arms with such openings may be reinforced locally with a stress attenuator or with ribs to increase their load-bearing and buckling capacity and to reduce their stress, strain and deflection under load. A stress attenuator may be made by increasing the in-molded thickness of the web in areas adjacent to or surrounding the tie-down openings.
