Title (EN) A CLOTH SNAG REPAIR TOOL
(FR) OUTIL DE REPARATION D"ACCROCS DANS L"ETOFFE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A cloth snag repair tool (10) for removing snags (16) from one side of a cloth (12). The tool (10) includes a shaft (20) having a length between 60mm and 90mm and a maximum diameter between 0.635mm and 1.65mm. The shaft (20) has a cloth penetration surface section (28) beginning at a printed forward end (24). The cloth penetration surface section (28) has low frictional surface characteristics to enable the shaft (20) to be initially easily inserted into the cloth at a snag location without substantially disturbing the snag (16). The shaft (20) has a frictional surface section (30) intermediate the cloth penetration surface section (28) and a rear end. The frictional surface section has high surface characteristics to engage and frictionally draw the snag (16) through the cloth (12) as the shaft (20) is forced through the cloth. In a preferred form, the frictional surface section (30) is machine roughened with diamond shaped knurls covering between one third and two thirds the length of the shaft. The tool (10) is particularly effective in repairing snags in clothing, drapes and upholstery.
(FR)Un outil de reparation d"accrocs dans l"etoffe (10) sert a enlever les accrocs (16) d"un cote d"une etoffe (12). L"outil (10) comprend d"un axe (20) d"une longueur de 60mm a 90mm et un diametre maximum compris entre 0,635mm et 1,65mm. L"axe (20) possede une section de surface de penetration dans l"etoffe (28) commencant a une extremite avant imprimee (24). La section de surface de penetration dans l"etoffe (28) possede des caracteristiques de faible frottement superficiel pour permettre a l"axe (20) d"etre introduit facilement dans l"etoffe a l"endroit ou se trouve un accroc sans perturber sensiblement l"accroc (16). L"axe (20) possede une section de surface de frottement (30) entre la section de surface de penetration dans l"etoffe (28) et une extremite arriere. La section de surface de frottement possede des caracteristiques de friction superficielles elevees pour engager et tirer par frottement l"accroc (16) au travers de l"etoffe (12) au fur et a mesure que l"axe (20) est force au travers de l"etoffe. Dans un mode de realisation prefere, la section de surface de frottement (30) est rendue rugueuse par un moletage croise recouvrant entre un tiers et deux tiers de la longueur de l"axe. L"outil (10) est particulierement efficace pour reparer des accrocs faits dans des vetements, des housses et des capitonnages.
