Title (EN) SOCCER GOAL
(FR) CAGE DE BUT DE FOOTBALL
Abstract:
(EN) A game goal according to the invention, such as a soccer goal (100), collapses both vertically and laterally. The goal includes joints and brackets which facilitate the collapse of the goal such that the during vertical collapse, the forward uprights of the goal fold below the goal ' s lower rear support members, enhancing the goals transportability. The goal includes stabilizing arms and corresponding receptacles to stabilize the goal in the collapsed position. The goal also has a resistive element (201) which prevents the goal from collapsing too quickly. The goal further incorporates a rotating joint (301) in a top corner bracket which provides an interference fit with a slot (127) in the top corner bracket and a notch in the upright, thereby providing stability when the goal is in the upright or open position for use. Lateral stability of the goal under the weight of a net is enhanced by angle brackets (110) at the ground level of the goal.
(FR) La présente invention a pour objet une cage de but, telle qu’une cage de but de football (100), qui se plie à la fois verticalement et latéralement. La cage de but comporte des articulations et des supports qui facilitent le pliage de la cage de telle sorte que pendant le pliage vertical, les montants avant de la cage se plient au-dessous des éléments de support arrière inférieurs de la cage de but, ce qui améliore la transportabilité de la cage. La cage de but comporte des bras stabilisateurs et des réceptacles correspondants pour stabiliser la cage en position pliée. La cage possède également un élément résistif (201) qui empêche la cage de se plier trop rapidement. La cage de but incorpore en outre une articulation tournante (301) dans un support de coin supérieur qui offre un ajustement avec serrage avec une fente (127) dans le support de coin supérieur et une encoche dans le montant, d’où une stabilité lorsque la cage se trouve en position d’utilisation verticale ou ouverte. La stabilité latérale de la cage sous le poids d’un filet est améliorée par des supports de fixation (110) au niveau du sol de la cage.
