Title (EN) ANIMAL FETCH DEVICE AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF A ATTRAPER POUR ANIMAUX ET PROCEDE CONNEXE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides an animal fetch device used for non-damaging play. The device (10) comprises a housing (12) which defines an interior volume (84) and line release guide chamber (86). The housing (12) supports an interior placed spool (46) which is allowed to freely rotate. A first side member (50) of the spool (46) has gear teeth (54) around a circumference which intermesh with matching gear teeth (42) on a crank spur (66) . A crank (20) with handle (38) is inserted onto a first housing opening (28) and connected to the crank spur (66) . A button (30) allows both release and locking of the interior spool (46) through a contact pawl (36). A line (56) is connected to the spool (46) and wound around the axle (48) . The line (56) extends through the line release guide chamber (86) and the housing (12). An attractor (80) is attached to the line (56) through the use of a fused connection attachment.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif à attraper destiné à un animal, permettant à ce dernier de jouer sans provoquer de dégâts. Ce dispositif comprend un boîtier qui définit un volume intérieur et un compartiment de guidage de sortie du fil. Une bobine est montée à l'intérieur du boîtier, cette bobine pouvant tourner librement. La bobine comprend un premier élément latéral comportant des dents d'engrenage sur sa circonférence, ces dents venant se mettre en prise avec des dents d'engrenage complémentaires placés sur la clavette d'une manivelle. Une manivelle comprenant une poignée est insérée dans une première ouverture du boîtier et assemblée à la clavette de manivelle. Un bouton commande à la fois le déblocage et le blocage de la bobine interne par l'intermédiaire d'un cliquet de contact. Un fil est fixé sur la bobine et enroulé autour de l'axe. Ce fil passe à travers le compartiment de guidage de sortie de fil et à travers le boîtier. Un attracteur est attaché au fil au moyen d'un système d'attache solidaire.
