Title (EN) SELF-RETRACTING EXTENSION LIMITING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE LIMITATION D'EXTENSION D'AUTO-RÉTRACTION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A self-retracting extension limiting device. It is designed to be attached between a first object and a second object, where the distance between the first and second objects is variable. The device exerts a restoring force tending to draw the two objects together. A first, relatively weak restoring force is exerted over a range of distance. Then, when the objects have been separated to a defined limit of travel, the device exerts a much greater restoring force. The invention includes overlapping and self-contained elements so that unwanted slack is minimized.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif de limitation d'extension d'auto-rétraction conçu pour être attaché entre un premier objet et un second objet, où la distance entre les premier et second objets est variable. Le dispositif exerce une force de restitution tendant à tirer les deux objets ensemble. Une première force de restitution, relativement faible, est exercée sur une portée de distance. Ensuite, lorsque les objets ont été séparés à une limite de déplacement défini, le dispositif exerce une force de restitution bien plus grande. L'invention comprend des éléments chevauchants et autocontenus de sorte qu'un jeu indésirable est minimisé.
