Title
(EN) Toy launcher apparatus with few parts and quick and easy assembly
Abstract
(EN)

A dart launcher having few but integral parts and an assembly process that is quick and easy for forming robust but inexpensive toys. The launcher may have an outer body, a safety valve and spring, a valve cap, a trigger, a piston, a launch spring, a cylinder cap and a plunger rod. The outer body includes an integral cylinder portion, a barrel portion and a trigger-mounting portion, the trigger includes an integral finger pad portion, a latch arm, a biasing portion and resilient legs. The piston includes an opening and a connector component formed around the opening to snap-fit with the piston, the cylinder cap includes an opening for the plunger rod and a connector component to connect with the cylinder portion, and the barrel portion includes a valve and mandrel support for supporting the safety valve and spring.
