Abstract: A trim ring for a vandal resistant luminaire, the trim ring is disposed about an electrical component housing and a lens and holds the lens to the electrical component housing. The trim ring is designed to protect the luminaire by absorbing physical shock exerted on the luminaire and provide an aesthetic pleasing design. Twist locks depend from an inner annular surface of the trim ring which cooperate with retaining legs on the electrical component housing providing for access to the internal components of the vandal resistant luminaire.

Abstract: A pool light mounting system includes a circular band formed of resilient material. The band has first and second adjusting brackets at either end. The brackets have substantially planar surfaces located orthogonally to the band. The planar surfaces have first and second apertures penetrating the surfaces. The apertures are sized to fit slidably over a threaded stud. First and second nuts are threaded to fit the threaded stud and located on the stud located within the first and second apertures. First and second mounting brackets are attached to the band having third and fourth planar surfaces spaced forwardly from and parallel to a front edge of the band. The third surface has a receiving notch for a mounting hook. The fourth surface is located opposite the first mounting bracket along the band and has a threaded hole sized and shaped to accept a threaded mounting screw for a lighting fixture.
Abstract: An anti-shock flashlight comprising a body, where there is an empty compartment inside. There is a male component on the top of the body. There is an anti-shock system comprising a holder, a headpiece and a spring. The holder slides onto the body, the headpiece is suspended on the top of the body; and the spring is fixed between the holder and the headpiece. There is also a light head device comprising a head screw and a light head. There is a female component, which is screwed onto the male component on the front of the body, on the head screw. The light head comprising a light bulb and a base is placed on the top of the interior of the headpiece. The base is suspended on the top of the interior of the body, in order to reduce recoil.
Abstract: An improved candle holder in which the lens is trapped within elastic elongated bars that space the lens from the rigid metallic cover and frictionally hold the lens in an extended and retracted position. Viewing windows are provided for seeing the height of the unburned candle. A brandy glass attachment is provided for the top of the holder.
Abstract: The efficacy, life and beam intensity of a sealed-beam headlamp are enhanced by employing a compact baseless halogen-cycle incandescent lamp as the inner light source and mounting it in optically coupled relationship with the reflector component of the sealed-beam housing by a holder assembly that is rugged, light in weight, and inexpensive from both a material and manufacturing standpoint. The holder assembly comprises one or several sheet-metal components that are locked in embracing interfitting relationship with the press seal of the lamp envelope by welding the components to one or more of the lamp lead-in conductors and to the rigid main conductors carried by the reflector component. The halogen-cycle lamp and its rigid lead-in conductors thus constitute integral structural parts of the finished mount that mechanically retain the various components in their assembled relationship.
