Title (EN) FIXED CIRCUMFERENCE BINDING DEVICE WITH NON-PROTRUDING FREE END AND METHOD FOR BINDING THEREWITH
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ATTACHE A CIRCONFERENCE FIXE COMPORTANT UNE EXTREMITE LIBRE NON PROEMINENTE, ET PROCEDE POUR ATTACHER A L'AIDE DUDIT DISPOSITIF
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed is a substantially permanent, fixed-circumference, non-abrasive binding device (10) for gathering and binding plural articles, including a locking head (20), a tail (16), and an elongate strap (14) therebetween. The head and tail ends include cooperative locking means for securing the tail end in the locking head. The tail end includes outwardly projecting tail barbs (22) to facilitate pulling the tail end through the locking head, and subsequently to facilitate engagement of locking barbs (12) located on the end of the strap with barb stops (26) located in the head. A score line (18) is performed across the tail end at a point between the locking barbs and the tail end, to provide for a break-away tail which can be removed after engagement of the locking barbs with the barb stops in the head. Upon engagement of the locking barbs with the barb stops, the score line is at a position slightly inside of the locking head so that no sharp or abrasive edge will be exposed after the tail end is broken off.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif d'attache (10), sensiblement permanent, à circonférence fixe, non abrasif, qui permet de rassembler et d'attacher plusieurs articles, et qui comprend une tête de verrouillage (20) et une queue (16) séparées par une sangle allongée (14). Les extrémités tête et queue comportent des systèmes de verrouillage coopérants qui permettent de bloquer la queue dans la tête de verrouillage. La queue comporte des barbes de queue (22) dirigées vers l'extérieur qui facilitent son enfoncement dans la tête de verrouillage, et donc l'engagement des barbes de queue (12) de l'extrémité de la sangle dans les arrêts de barbes (26) de la tête. Au niveau de la queue, une ligne d'encoches (18) tracée entre les barbes de verrouillage et la queue constitue une queue de rupture qui peut être enlevée après engagement des barbes de verrouillage dans les arrêts de barbes de la tête. Après engagement, la ligne d'encoches se trouve légèrement à l'intérieur de la tête de verrouillage, de façon qu'aucun bord aigu ou abrasif ne dépasse quand on casse la queue.
