Abstract: Systems for supporting a container are presented. A support system in one embodiment, includes a metal clip, an insulating sleeve surrounding a beverage container, and at least one magnet that is attached to the sleeve and drawn by an attractive force to the clip, such that the sleeve together with the container is selectively detachable from the clip. Another embodiment includes a metal insert positioned in a belt or garment, instead of the metal clip. Yet another embodiment includes a pair of dipole magnets, with one positioned on the sleeve and its mate positioned on a clip or embedded in a belt or garment.
Abstract: A decorative cover for smoke detectors and like devices mounted on a wall or ceiling provides a cover member of a generally opaque material approximately the shape of the device it is covering and somewhat larger than the device to be covered. The cover is provided with a plurality of connector resilient legs fixed to the inside of the cover and extending towards the device to be covered in the pattern to engage selected distributed points of engagement. Cam surfaces on the ends of the resilient legs are position to laterally deflect the respective legs when they contact the distributed points of engagement. Forces imposed by the resilience of the legs while deflected are directed in opposition to one another to maintain frictional engagement at respective points of engagement.
