Title
(EN) LINKING ARM ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE BRAS DE JONCTION
Abstract
(EN) A linking arm assembly incorporating an improved connection between an elongated rod portion and an engagement element such as a ball stud or the like adapted to join the linking arm to another structure. The linking arm assembly may incorporate an improved ball and socket connection. The socket may include an arrangement of flexible rib elements that are compressed when the ball stud is inserted so as to bias against the ball during use. Accordingly, a potentially loose condition may be avoided thereby reducing the possibility for noise or failure over time.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un ensemble bras de jonction intégrant une connexion améliorée entre une partie de tige allongée et un élément de mise en prise tel qu'un pivot à rotule ou son équivalent conçu pour joindre le bras de jonction à une autre structure. L'ensemble bras de jonction peut intégrer une connexion à rotule et logement de rotule améliorée. Le logement de rotule peut comprendre un agencement d'éléments à nervure flexible compressés lorsque le pivot à rotule est inséré de façon à s'incliner contre la rotule en fonctionnement. Ceci permet par conséquent d'éviter un état potentiellement relâché, réduisant ainsi la possibilité de bruit ou de panne dans la durée.
