Title (EN) ARTICLE RESTRAINT AND FALL PREVENTION DEVICE
(FR) ARTICLE DE RETENUE ET DE PROTECTION CONTRE LES CHUTES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A restraint device (10) is disclosed comprising a wall bracket (13), an article bracket (12), a bridging member (14) and a fastening component (15). When installed at or near the top of an article of furniture or appliance (16), the brackets (12, 13) provide an aperture or recess (21, 22) between the brackets (12, 13) and the vertical surface to which they have been fastened in which a pair of legs (19, 20) of the bridging member (14) can be inserted. The bridging member (14) forms a mechanical lock between the brackets (12, 13) which, when necessary, can very simply be disengaged. A method in accordance with the present invention for securing articles to a vertical surface, such as a wall, is provided which includes a few simple unskilled steps. Accordingly, one of the advantages of the restraint device (10) of the present invention is its simplicity and ease of installation.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif de retenue (10). Ce dispositif comprend un support mural (13), un support d'article (12), un élément de pontage (14) et un élément de fixation (15). Installés à proximité ou au-dessus d'un meuble ou d'un appareil (16), ces supports (12, 13) présentent une ouverture ou un évidement (21, 22) ménagés entre eux (12, 13) et la surface verticale sur laquelle ils sont fixés, dans lesquels des bras (19, 20) de l'élément de raccordement (14) peuvent être insérés. L'élément de pontage (14) constitue un dispositif de verrouillage mécanique entre les upports (12, 13) qui peuvent ainsi être simplement dégagés lorsque cela est nécessaire. Un procédé selon la présente invention permettant de fixer des articles à une surface verticale telle qu'un mur, comprend quelques étapes ne nécessitant aucune qualification particulière. Un des principaux avantages du dispositif de retenue (10) est sa simplicité et sa facilité d'installation.
