Title (EN) TELESCOPING SHOPPING CART
(FR) CHARIOT A PROVISIONS EMBOITABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The cart having a basket (100), including front (110), bottom (108), rear (112) and opposed rectangular side panels (104, 106), which is attached to a wheeled cart frame (101). The rear panel is pivotally attached to the upper rear portion of the basket for nesting. The lower portion of the basket is pivotally attached to the frame and is maintained in a horizontal use position by two opposed latching protrusions (206) attached to the basket and having notches (210) which engage the edges (212) of openings positioned on each side of the frame. During nesting, the basket is automatically rotated to a predetermined upper position whereby the front portion of the basket is tilted upwardly so that it can enter inside the rear portion of the next forward cart. When the latching notches are disengaged from the openings, the basket is automatically rotated upward by the force of latching springs (214) coupling the basket to the frame. A substantially U-shaped rod (202) extends horizontally along the front and side panels wherein each of its free ends is attached to the latching protrusions. A spring-loaded mechanism urges the U-shaped rod toward a forward rest position. Impact of the rod with the next forward cart during nesting results in its rearward deflection, thereby disengaging the latching protrusions from the latching edges so that the basket can be rotated upwardly to the predetermined upper position to permit nesting.
(FR)Le chariot possede un panier (100), comprenant des panneaux avant (110), de fond (108), arriere (112) et lateraux rectangulaires opposes (104, 106), qui est attache a un chassis de chariot a roues (101). Le panneau arriere est attache de maniere pivotante sur la partie arriere superieure du panier pour l"emboitement. La partie inferieure du panier est attachee de maniere pivotante au chassis et elle est maintenue horizontalement en position d"utilisation par deux projections de verrouillage opposees (206) attachees au panier et ayant des crans (210) qui engagent les bords (212) d"ouvertures positionnees de chaque cote du chassis. Lors de l"emboitement, le panier tourne automatiquement vers une position superieure predeterminee, ce qui fait basculer vers le haut la partie avant du panier de maniere telle qu"il puisse entrer a l"interieur de la partie arriere du chariot precedent. Lorsque les crans de verrouillage sont degages des ouvertures, le panier tourne automatiquement vers le haut par la force des ressorts de verrouillage (214) accouplant le panier au chassis. Une tige de forme generale en U (202) s"etend horizontalement le long des paniers avant et lateraux et chacune de ses extremites libres est attachee aux projections de verrouillage. Un mecanisme arme a ressort pousse la tige tenu vers une position de repos avant. L"impact de la tige avec le chariot precedent pendant l"emboitement provoque sa deflexion vers l"arriere, degageant ainsi les projections de verrouillage hors des bords de verrouillage pour que le panier puisse etre tourne vers le haut vers la position superieure predeterminee de maniere a permettre l"emboitement.
