  • Patent number: 5975501
    Abstract: The invention relates to a retainer clip or latch attached to a fence post, such as a plastic fence post, for use in electric fences, that can be used with different types of fence strand members, and that is operated by hand to permit easy securement and removal of the fence strand members. The clip includes first and second portions which are hingedly attached together at one end and are releasably engageable with each other at the opposite end. The clip defines a loop at one end for holding an elongate fence strand member, such as wire, and an elongated area for holding a broader fence strand members, such as electric tape. The loop and elongated area are separated by a finger which extends from the second portion and into a notch in the first portion. The clips can be directly attached to a head portion of a T-shaped fence post at spaced locations along its length.

  • Patent number: 4458387
    Abstract: A panel nail construction adapted to be assembled on a backing material used in making shaped, upholstered panels employed in the making of furniture, and the like. The panel nail construction is provided with backing material-retaining means which enable it to be attached on a backing material. The panel nail construction advantageously is used in the form of a strip comprised of panel nails integrally, but separably, interconnected along the adjacent transverse margins of the head portion of each of the panel nails. In this form, the panel nail construction can be rapidly, and selectively, assembled on a backing material with an automatic machine or tool.
