Description:
DESCRIPTION of the invention entitled“Device clamping, multi-purpose, with removable, interchangeable and customizable plate”.

TECNICHAL FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The object of the present invention is a multipurpose and customizable mechanical devise with technical function of tightening closure structured to create articles and fashion accessories and/or objects for domestic and industrial use.

The identified technical field of the invention is that of closing devise similar to buttons and diskettes of different shape, size and material, having two parts, one of which with a pin and another with an housing, which, once superimposed on each other, can be closed by means of pressure or once superimposed on each other they must rotate one over the other to allow interlocking closure like the classic bayonet closures.

Instead the present invention concerns a mechanical device of tightening closure consisting of two parts of which: one of the two is composed of a plate that contains a pin (1A), the other part (2) is necessarily structured of minimum three plates with housing (2A, 2B, 2C) superimposed on each other, as to form a single part of housing and suitable for incorporating the pin (1A); the central plate (2B) in structured with a lever (4), that allows the rotation of this plate up to the stop generating the locking mechanism of the two parts, also possibly with the help of a spring (4), simply by superimposing the same and without rotating each other.

With this invention, a tightening closure can be guaranteed without one of the two parts and/or diskettes must rotate one with respect to the other, guaranteeing a new technical function of tightening closure between two completely safe parts.

BACKGROUND ART

Several buttons or diskettes, of shape, size and different materials, having types of locking and/or pressure closure applied with decorative functionality on clothes and to wearable objects of daily use which have characteristics and functions completely different from those of the present invention.

Infect, the buttons or disks known to the background art meet both limits linked to the practicality of fixing the two parts of the device, not always easy, requiring the rotation of one part with respect to the other in order to allow the tightening of the parts themselves, and limits related to the practicality of the attachment, requiring a pressure fit, of the two parts which does not guarantee a proper secure seal and is not comfortable to operate.

In particular, with the buttons and/or disks of the prior art, the pressure closure does not guarantee a secure seal, and the interlocking one can be applied by turning the two parts of the button and/or the disk each with respect to the other, preventing the technical and decorative features of the new invention from the device.

Devices such as those listed in the research report (N. 3643296 A, registered in the United States by KAHN EDWARD JOEL, 22 February 1972; N. 2008/060110 Al, registered in the United States by SCHMEZEL RICHARD, 13 March 2008; N. 2008/155788 Al, registered by WILCOX ROBERT, 3 July 2008), are all completely different. They have a part having a pin and a part having a one-piece housing which, once joined, must rotate one relative to the other in order to allow the closure of the both parties.

Therefore, these known patents are presented as classic closures that work with snap or pressure interlocking (bayonet locks) and do not have the technical characteristics of the Applicant’s invention, i.e. a housing part which incorporates at least three plates inside of which the central one has a lever connected to it which rotates independently of the parts of the device and generates the locking closure of the same.

In fact, the bayonet lock meets the limits of the rotation of the two parts of the object to be joined which, if done in the opposite direction, would release them.

Moreover the buttons or disks known to the state of the art in addition, not offer possibility to interchange a part of the device in an easy, practical, fast and safe way, therefore allowing a series use with multiple objects.

Finally, the patent known in the state of the art, for example bayonet closures, do not allow to be used to fix articles and/or objects of daily, domestic and industrial use, with multiple anchoring points, since the superimposing of one plate on the other one would force the object to necessarily rotate, with evident inconvenience in the practicality of the action.

DISCLOSURE OF INVENTION

The purpose of this invention, instead, is to realize a multipurpose and customizable mechanical device of tightening closure that have a double functionality, technique and aesthetics, that is functional for the production of articles for domestic and/or industrial use, solving the inconveniences of the devices known to the state of the art.

The purpose of the present invention is to create a mechanical device to facilitate a tightening closure of articles and fashion accessories or daily objects of both domestic and industrial use, making the closure practical, quick and easy by simply overlapping the parts and without these rotating one with respect to the other, rotating only the central plate structured in the housing part of the device

The purpose of this invention is to create a mechanical device capable of ensuring robust sealing thanks to clamping, easily and without requiring a particular pressure to trigger the closure itself, making the device practical and useful even when applied in electrical, mechanical and/or hydraulic fields as junction shall be used.

Another purpose of this invention is to make a mechanical device of tightening closure, that in its decorative structure of articles and fashion accessories, or daily objects for domestic and industrial use, that can also have a thickness of a few millimeters, being much reduced compared to the devices known in the state of the art.

Another purpose of this invention is to realize a device that, is composed to a removable component that can be interchanged and customized, on a line of objects that present the same technical structure, in a practical and fast way. Another purpose of this invention is to offer n mechanical device, for any purpose used, that present a technical functionality and a high aesthetic value with a low cost of production.

B Another purpose of the present invention is to realize a mechanical device that, depending on the utilization, can be realized in different shape, size and material.
