Title
(EN) PIVOTABLE ARM REST WITH RETAINING SPRING
(FR) ACCOUDOIR PIVOTANT AVEC RESSORT DE RETENUE
Abstract
(EN)
A vehicle seat assembly includes a seat bottom (12) with a seat back (14) supported on the seat bottom (12). An armrest (16) is pivotally attached to one side of the seat back (14), and can pivot between a stowed position and an operable position. In the stowed position the armrest (16) is vertically aligned with the seat back (14) and in the operable position the armrest (16) extends generally outwardly from the seat back (14) so that a user can rest their arm on the armrest (16). The armrest (16) is received by a support rod (18) that extends outwardly from one side of the seat back (14). The armrest (16) includes a substantially rigid insert member (28) and a resilient retaining member (30). The resilient retaining member (30) is installed in the insert member (28) and the insert member (28) is then pressed onto the support rod (18) such that the resilient retaining member (30) engages both the insert member (28) and the support rod (18) to secure the armrest (16) to the seat back (14).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un ensemble siège de véhicule constitué d'un fond (12) et d'un dossier (14), lequel repose sur ledit fond (12). Un accoudoir (16) est relié pivotant à l'un des cotés du dossier (14), de manière à pouvoir pivoter pour passer d'une position repliée à une position dépliée. En position repliée, cet accoudoir (16) s'aligne verticalement par rapport au dossier (14) du siège, alors qu'en position dépliée, cet accoudoir (16) s'étend généralement vers l'extérieur de ce dossier (14), de sorte qu'un utilisateur peut poser son bras sur l'accoudoir (16), lequel est par ailleurs monté sur une tige support (18) qui s'étend vers l'extérieur depuis l'un des cotés du dossier (14). Cet accoudoir (16) comprend en outre un élément (28) sensiblement rigide et un élément de retenue élastique (30), lequel est installé sur ledit élément (28) de sorte que ce dernier s'appuie contre la tige support (18), ledit élément de retenue élastique (30) étant ainsi amené à entrer en contact avec ledit élément (28) et ladite tige support (18), afin de fixer l'accoudoir (16) au dossier (14) du siège.
