Title
(EN) WINDOW BLIND LOW PROFILE MOUNTING BRACKET
(FR) PATTE DE FIXATION EXTRA-PLATE POUR RIDEAU ROULANT
Abstract
(EN) A pair or more of three-piece brackets (20) are provided for mounting the longitudinal edges of a window blind headrail (11). Each bracket includes a frame (21) with apertures (22) for mounting to a window frame top or ceiling (15). The frame (20) includes spaced depending apertured tabs (24, 25) through which a slidable tongue (30) is positioned. The distal ends (41) of an arrow spring (40) are confined by tangs (31) on tongue (30) and the other spring end (42) abuts and is confined by a notch (39) in tab (25). A top front lip (12) of the headrail (11) is tilted and positioned on the tongue (30) and then pushed inwardly to move the tongue (30) and compress spring (40) which allows the top rear lip (14) of the headrail (11) to rotate and clear a lip portion (25b) of tab (25) to a position within the lip portion (25b). Release of the pushing force releases the spring energy, forcing the tongue (30) back so that the headrail (11) is clamped between tongue (30) and tab (25). Bifurcated ramped legs (32) on one end of the tongue (30) prevent disassembly of the bracket.
(FR) Cette invention concerne au moins une paire de pattes de fixation (20) comportant trois parties, servant à monter les extrémités longitudinales d'un caisson (11) de rideau roulant. Chaque patte comprend une partie (21) pourvue d'ouvertures (22) servant au montage sur le cadre supérieur d'une fenêtre ou sur un plafond (15). Ledit cadre (20) comporte des petites pattes (24, 25) solidaires espacées pourvues d'ouvertures dans lesquelles se positionne en coulissant une languette (3). Les extrémités distales (41) d'un ressort en forme de flèche (40) sont retenues par des butées (31) situées sur la languette (3) et l'autre extrémité du ressort (42) est limitée par une encoche (39) située dans la petite patte (25), contre laquelle ladite extrémité vient buter. Une lèvre supérieure avant (12) du caisson (11) bascule et se positionne sur la languette (30) puis exerce une poussée vers l'intérieur afin de déplacer la languette (30) et de comprimer le ressort (40), ce qui a pour effet de faire tourner la lèvre supérieure arrière (14) du caisson (11) et de la faire passer à l'écart d'une partie lèvre (25b) de la petite patte (25) pour qu'elle se place à l'intérieur de la partie lèvre (25b). Le relâchement de la force de poussée libère l'énergie du ressort qui repousse la languette (30) de manière à ce que le caisson (11) soit fixé entre la languette (30) et la petite patte (25). Des parties inclinées et bifurquées prévues sur une extrémité de la languette (30) empêchent la patte de fixation de se démonter.
