Hinge Cooperating With Aperture Or Channel In Base Patents (Class 40/535)
  • Patent number: 8347536
    Abstract: A display device includes a panel that is mountable to a vertical wall, and a leaf assembly comprised of a stack of like shaped leaves that are bundled together and connected to the panel, and a plurality of magnets that enable the leaves to be magnetically held in one or the other side of the panel but be manipulated by a user with one hand, in a flipping manner, thereby freeing the user's other hand to perform tasks related to use of the display device. The panel includes a slot through which rearward end portions of the leaves are passed and bundled by compression plates, thus leaving the connection arrangement hidden from view and aesthetically pleasing. In an arrangement, a frame is provided about the panel to guide and support, at least in part, the lower edges of the leaf assembly.

  • Patent number: 7475505
    Abstract: A notebook-like display device includes a mounting panel, or pair of conjoined panels, mountable to a wall, a pair of guide brackets, and a set of display leaves, the leaves being mounted to the support brackets and manipulated by a demonstrator and like personnel with one hand, in a flipping manner, freeing the user's other hand to perform tasks related to use of the display device. The panels and leaves are generally planar, rectangular, and substantially rigid, such as of a high density polymer, composite, or fiberboard. The leaves are constrained by retention elements, received in the support brackets, for movement between first and second positions, respectively, wherein the leaf is revered but in superposed generally parallel relation with one and the other side of the panel and other of the leaves. Magnets or other holding devices operate between the leaves and panel(s) to retain the leaves in each position.

  • Patent number: 5318734
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for making thin panels having a urethane core and hinges for interconnecting them. A frame is secured to a support bed, and a sheet of paper is placed inside the frame into overlying relation to the bed. Plural board members are then placed inside the frame so that they overlie the peripheral borders of the sheet of paper and so that they are held in position by the frame. Tubular members are positioned in bores formed in the board members so that they extend into the area bounded by the extrusion members, and the innermost end of the tubular members are taped over to prevent foam intrusion. A second sheet of paper is then placed over the frame and a rigid top plate is lowered into overlying relation to the second sheet of paper so that the frame is sandwiched between the bed and the top plate. Foam is then injected into the cavity defined by the board members and the sheets of paper through a port formed in a board member.

  • Patent number: 4102070
    Abstract: A display device is provided with a plurality of flip display cards which are pivotally carried by a rotatable card holder. A release tab is positioned above the card holder so as to engage the edge of one card whereby the information on the front of said one card can be viewed. The preceding card is supported on abutments on the card holder so that information on the back of said preceding card can be viewed simultaneously with the information on the front of said one card. The card holder is turned step-by-step so as to urge the one card past a first viewing position whereupon the card falls down onto the abutments for viewing in the second viewing position as the next card is moved into said first viewing position. The card holder has structure for pivotally carrying display cards, abutments for supporting display cards and indexing detents for providing the step-by-step advance of the display cards.
