Abstract
(EN)
One embodiment is a carrier for releasably holding a device, the carrier comprising: a body having one or more sites having an aperture bounded by two or more edges within which the device may be held and a first and second prong; wherein: (a) each prong has a fixed end attached to the body, a movable end extending into the aperture, and an actuating surface; (b) the first and the second resilient prong are disposed so as to urge the device against two or more edges of the aperture; and (c) the movable ends are adapted to be moved apart by a force applied to the actuating surface of the first prong and a force applied to the actuating surface of the second prong thereby enabling the device to be placed into or released from the carrier.

L'invention, selon un mode de réalisation, porte sur un support pour supporter de façon libérable un dispositif, le support comprenant : un corps comportant un ou plusieurs emplacements comportant une ouverture délimitée par deux ou plusieurs bords à l'intérieur desquels le dispositif peut être maintenu et une première et une deuxième pattes. Selon l'invention, (a) chaque patte comporte une extrémité fixe fixée au corps, une extrémité mobile s'étendant à l'intérieur de l'ouverture, et une surface d'actionnement; (b) les première et deuxième pattes élastiques sont disposées de façon à pousser le dispositif contre deux ou plusieurs bords de l'ouverture; et (c) les extrémités mobiles sont conçues pour être écartées par une force appliquée à la surface d'actionnement de la première patte et par une force appliquée à la surface d'actionnement de la deuxième patte, de façon à permettre ainsi au dispositif d'être placé dans le support ou sorti de celui-ci.
