Title
(EN) ILLUMINATING CAP FOR A VALVE STEM
(FR) CAPUCHON ECLAIRANT DESTINE A UNE TIGE DE SOUPAPE
Abstract
(EN)
An illuminating cap (10) for a valve stem of a vehicle tire includes a housing formed of a base part (15) that is connectable to the valve stem and a hollow top part (25) connectable to the base part, the hollow top part being transparent or translucent and possibly neon colored. An illumination assembly (35) having an illuminating element (37) is positioned in the hollow top part and is illuminated by one or more batteries (B1, B2) located in a chamber (C) in the housing. The illuminating cap not only functions to protect the valve of the valve stem from debris damage but it also makes the tire more visible, especially at night, and thus enhances the safety in using a vehicle to which the tire is attached.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un capuchon éclairant (10) destiné à une tige de soupape d'un pneu de véhicule comprenant un boîtier formé d'une partie de base (15) pouvant être rattachée à une tige de soupape et une partie supérieure creuse (25) ) pouvant être rattachée à la partie de base, la partie supérieure creuse étant transparente ou translucide et éventuellement de couleur fluorescente. Un ensemble éclairant (35) pourvu d'un élément éclairant (37) est positionné dans la partie supérieure creuse et éclairé au moyen d'une ou plusieurs batteries (b1, B2) située dans une enceinte (C) du boîtier. Le capuchon éclairant sert non seulement à protéger la soupape de la tige de soupape des dommages causés par débris, mais rend aussi le pneu plus visible, surtout la nuit, ce qui améliore la sécurité lors de l'utilisation du véhicule auquel cet ensemble est attaché.
