Title (EN) RUNNING BOARD ASSEMBLY WITH TUBULAR TRIM
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE MARCHEPIED A MOULURE TUBULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) An after-market running board assembly for attachment to the chassis and/or body of an automotive utility vehicle includes an extruded step (14) and a semicircular trim strip (16) secured to an outer edge of the step by a plurality of connector clips (82, 106). The step includes T-slot channels (40, 42) which capture bolts (114) secured to connector clips (82, 106). Each clip has a hook (90, 124) on its outer end that is engaged with a slot (76) formed in a continuous reinforcing and connecting member (60) that is an integral part of the inner edge of the trim strip (16). The same channel T-slots (44, 46) capture bolts (130, 132) that secure transverse angle irons (18, 20) to the step for mounting the running board assembly to the vehicle.
(FR) Un ensemble de marchepied de rattrapage destiné à être fixé au châssis et/ou à la carrosserie d'un véhicule automobile à usage général, comprend une marche extrudée (14) et une moulure demi-circulaire (16) fixée au bord extérieur de la marche au moyen d'une pluralité de pinces de connexion (82, 106). La marche comprend des rainures en T (40, 42) qui serrent des boulons (114) fixés aux pinces de connexion (82, 106). Chaque pince possède sur son extrémité extérieure un crochet (90, 124) qui s'engage dans une fente (76) formée dans un élément continu de renforcement et de connexion (60) incorporé au bord intérieur de la moulure (16). Lesdites rainures en T (44, 46) serrent des boulons (130, 132) qui fixent des perches de fer transversales (18, 20) à la marche afin de monter l'ensemble de marchepied sur le véhicule.
