Title (EN) DEVICE FOR CONNECTING THE ENDS OF A SEPARABLE ZIPPER
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE CONNEXION DES EXTREMITES D"UNE FERMETURE ECLAIR SEPARABLE
Abstract:
(EN) An improved device for connecting the ends of a separable zipper having opposed strings or rows of interlocking teeth or elements including specially adapted terminals which facilitate the engagement of the ends of the zipper and initial movement of a slider to fasten the zipper teeth. The terminals are engagable by being brought together in a direction substantially perpendicular to the zipper rows. Compared to the conventional pin-and-socket terminal arrangement wherein the pin must be threaded through one relatively small port of the slider and then into the socket, the terminals are relatively large and essentially self-aligning during engagement. Once engaged, the terminals are free to rotate relative to each other, thus permitting the opposed rows of zipper elements to self-align as the slider is urged forward to engage the rearmost ends of the zipper elements.
(FR) Dispositif ameliore pour joindre les extremites d"une fermeture eclair separables ayant des rangees opposees de dents ou elements de verrouillage et comprenant des terminaux specialement adaptes qui facilitent l"engagement des extremites de la fermeture eclair et le mouvement initial d"un curseur pour relier les dents de la fermeture eclair. Les terminaux peuvent etre engages en les joignant selon une direction sensiblement perpendiculaire aux rangees de la fermeture. Compare au dispositif de terminaux a goupille et douille ou la goupille doit etre vissee dans un orifice relativementpetitducurseurpuisdansladouille, ces terminaux sont relativement grands et s"alignent d"eux-memes pendant l"engagement. Une fois engages, les terminaux sont libres de tourner l"un par rapport a l"autre, permettant ainsi aux rangees opposes posees d"elements de la fermeture eclair de s"aligner eux-memes en meme temps que le curseur est pousse avant pour engager les extremites arriere des elements de fermeture.
