Title (EN) LEANING SUPPORT STRUCTURE
(FR) STRUCTURE DE SUPPORT INCLINEE
Abstract:
(EN) A leaning support structure (10, 500) that is lightweight, expandable by a single hand and has a sturdy base without the need for insertion into the ground. The leaning support structure includes first (20) and second (25) elongated support members offset from each other, each support member having upper (35, 45) and lower ends (40, 50) and a predetermined connecting point (220, 210). A handle (55) may be placed on the upper end of the first elongated support member to cover the offset portion (30) between the first and the second elongated support members, improving the feel and the aesthetic appearance. At the predetermined connecting points (220, 210), a connector (215) connects the elongated support members. A groove (310) and a female securing portion (410) are located in the upper half of the first elongated support member. A rod (320), which fits into the groove (310) to limit the relative angle between the elongated support members, and a male securing portion (360) are located in the upper half of the second elongated support member. In use, one places the lower end of the second elongated support member on a surface and extends the leaning support structure by applying pressure to the upper end of the first elongated support member, thereby forming a V-shaped opening above the predetermined connecting points. The leaning support structure is leaned against an article which is to be supported, and the article to be supported leans against and through the V-shaped opening (240). A high friction surface (340, 350) may be placed in the V-shaped opening to prevent slippage of the device to be supported.
(FR) L'invention concerne une structure de support inclinée (10, 500) légère, qui se déplie d'une seule main et dont la base est robuste, sans qu'il faille la planter dans le sol. Ladite structure de support comprend un premier (20) et un second (25) éléments de support allongés décalés l'un par rapport à l'autre, chaque élément présentant une extrémité supérieure (35, 45) et une extrémité inférieure (40, 50), ainsi qu'un point de fixation (220, 210) prédéfini. Une poignée (55) peut être placée au niveau de l'extrémité supérieure du premier élément de support allongé de manière à couvrir la partie décalée (30) située entre le premier et le second élément, ce qui améliore la prise et l'apparence esthétique. Au niveau des points de fixation prédéfinis (220, 210), un raccord (215) relie les éléments de support allongés. Une rainure (310) et une partie de fixation femelle (410) sont disposées sur la moitié supérieure du premier élément de support allongé. Une tige (320), qui rentre dans la rainure (310) pour limiter l'angle relatif entre les éléments de support allongés, et une partie de fixation mâle (360) sont disposées sur la moitié supérieure du second élément de support allongé. Lors de l'utilisation, on place l'extrémité inférieure du second élément de support allongé sur une surface et l'on déplie la structure de support inclinée par l'application d'une pression au niveau de l'extrémité supérieure du premier élément de support allongé, formant ainsi une ouverture en V au-dessus des points de fixation prédéfinis. On incline la structure de support inclinée contre un article à porter et ledit article repose contre l'ouverture (240) en V, à travers celle-ci. On peut placer une surface (340, 350) de fort frottement dans l'ouverture en V afin d'éviter que l'article à porter ne glisse.
