Vehicle Having Parts Connected With A Sealing Spring Fastener Comprising A Hermetically Closed Cavity

View page
US Patent:
6497011, Dec 24, 2002
Filed:
Mar 5, 2002
Appl. No.:
10/091245
Inventors:
Michael Walter Smith - Lake Zurich IL
Richard H. Ducato - Kenosha WI
Mark Fleydervish - Buffalo Grove IL
Werner Politzki - Hawthorn Woods IL
Eustathios Vassiliou - Newark DE
Assignee:
Termax Corporation - Schaumburg IL
International Classification:
A44B 2100
US Classification:
24295, 24289
Abstract:
This invention relates to vehicles having parts connected with a sealing spring fastener, which comprises a U-shaped structure, on which an elastic body has been incorporated. The elastic body has a hermetically closed cavity within the U-shaped structure. The sealing spring fastener can form an assembly with an extension of a panel, preferably a plastic panel. The assembly or the fastener by itself can be engaged into the slot of a solid sheet, preferably a metal sheet, in a manner that one side of the sheet is sealed from the other side of the sheet in the vicinity of the slot. In a preferred version, the sealing fastener comprises a substantially non-elastic tough casing around portion of the elastic body in order to avoid rapture during insertion of the fastener into the slot.

Spring Fastener With Ergonomically Balanced Removal To Insertion Force Ratio

US Patent:
6718599, Apr 13, 2004
Filed:
Jun 7, 2002
Appl. No.:
10/164963
Inventors:
Daniel James Dickinson - Arlington Heights IL
Michael Walter Smith - Lake Zurich IL
Lawrence John Conway - Des Plaines IL
Edward Sacha - Chicago IL
Paul Lester Clemens - Lake Zurich IL
Mark Fleydervish - Buffalo Grove IL
Richard H. Ducato - Kenosha WI
Eustathios Vassiliou - Newark DE
Assignee:
Termax Corporation - Schaumburg IL
International Classification:
A44B 1700
US Classification:
24295, 24289, 24293, 24458, 24517, 411508
Abstract:
This invention relates to a spring fastener, which comprises engagement springs in opposite sides of the fastener. Each engagement spring has an engagement region comprising a hindrance portion, which increases considerably the removal to insertion force ratio as compared to such ratio in the absence of the hindrance portion, thus permitting very easy insertion with considerably more difficult removal of the fastener from the slot of a panel, which provides an efficient ergonomically balanced removal to insertion force ratio. The hindrance portion comprises ripples or other hindrance elements of unexpectedly minute dimensions for providing this efficient ergonomic force balance.

Spring Fastener For Substrates Of Various Thicknesses And Respective Vehicles

View page
US Patent:
6896461, May 24, 2005
Filed:
Feb 10, 2003
Appl. No.:
10/361316
Inventors:
Mark Fleydervish - Buffalo Grove IL,
Daniel James Dickinson - Arlington Heights IL,
Richard H. Ducato - Kenosha WI,
Assignee:
E. Vassiliou Revo Cable Tryst - Newark DE
International Classification:
F16B013/06
US Classification:
411 55, 411 602
Abstract:
This invention pertains fasteners which are characterized by adaptability of use with substrates, such as steel panels for example, of various thicknesses. This is achieved predominately by providing the fastener with legs having an origin section in the vicinity of the head of the fastener. Expansion promoters and/or anti-sliding elements improve considerably the separation resistance of objects connected with the fasteners of the present invention. Assemblies and vehicles comprising the spring fasteners of this invention, connecting two objects, one of the objects comprising a slot in which the fastener is inserted, and the other a hole, are also included within the scope of the instant invention. Provision of an elastic body in the vicinity of the bottom section of the fasteners provides water and gas proof properties, and further assist in the elimination of squeaking noises.
