Title (EN) DUAL FUNCTION FASTENER
(FR) FIXATION A DOUBLE USAGE
Abstract:
(EN) Staking a boss on a housing extending through an aperture in a circuit board is an efficient fastening method but requires removal of the staked portion to gain access for repair, however no easy method exists for reuse of the boss and may require housing replacement. The present invention provides a removable deformable portion (16) of a boss (12) that initially fastens a first member (14) to a second member (18). Subsequent to removal of the deformable portion (16), a hole and screw (15 and 20) for alternatively fastening the first member (14) to the second member (18) fastens the first and second members.
(FR) Le refoulement d'un bossage prévu sur un boîtier et qui traverse un orifice dans une carte à circuits imprimés constitue un moyen de fixation efficace mais requiert l'enlèvement de la partie refoulée pour accéder à l'élément devant être réparé; cependant, il n'existe pas de méthode permettant de réutiliser le bossage, et dans certain cas le boîtier tout entier doit être remplacé. L'invention décrite prévoit une partie déformable et amovible (16) d'un bossage qui dans un premier temps fixe un premier élément (14) sur un deuxième élément (18). Après enlèvement de la partie déformable (16) on peut solidariser les premier et deuxième éléments (14 et (18), grâce à un orifice et une vis (15 et 20).
