  • Publication number: 20110000026
    Abstract: A retractile-fixing structure for a scissors comprises an inner tube having recessions and an outer tube allowing the inner tube to slide thereinside and having a handle and a fixing hole. One end of the retractile-fixing structure has a connection member connected with a blade. A switch is arranged in the handle, and a rolling pin is arranged inside the fixing hole. The rolling pin rolls on the inner tube or snap-fits to one recession. A pull rod is arranged between the inner and outer tubes with one end connected to the switch and another end engaging with the rolling pin. When the switch opens, the pull rod is separated from the rolling pin and driven to compress a spring; the rolling pin leaves the recession and slides on the inner tube simultaneously. When the switch closes, the spring makes the pull rod engage with the rolling pin; the rolling pin snap-fits to the recession; the inner tube securely engages with the outer tubes.

  • Patent number: 5097599
    Abstract: An emergency escape tool is proposed for escaping from a car when an accident happens. Scissors for cutting a seat belt and a spike are provided. The spike is held at and retractably protrudes from a handle of the scissors. A tip of the spike is pressed against a window glass. A spike driver is housed in the handle. The spike driver usually urges the spike in the protruding direction. When the spike pressed against the window is displaced inwardly, the spike driver accumulates a compression force corresponding to the displacement. According to the accumulated compression force, the spike is promptly pressed toward the protruding direction so as to break the window glass.

  • Patent number: 4452246
    Abstract: A surgical instrument is provided which has independent capabilities of operating as a surgical needleholder for suturing operations, and as a surgical cutting device for severing the suture thread. The instrument of the invention may be operated as a conventional needleholder and, to that end, it has a pair of jaws in which a suture needle may be securely held for the suturing operation, and it also has a usual clasp mechanism for locking the jaws in their closed position. However, in accordance with the concepts of the invention, one of the arms of the instrument is split into two co-extensive elongated sections, both being pivoted at the pivot point of the instrument. The distal end of the first section is formed into one of the jaws of the instrument, and that arm functions with the other arm of the instrument to perform the conventional needle holding function.
