Title (EN) CLOSURE DEVICES INCLUDING INCREMENTAL RELEASE MECHANISMS AND METHODS THEREFOR
(FR) DISPOSITIFS DE FERMETURE COMPRENANT DES MÉCANISMES DE RELÂCHEMENT INCRÉMENTIELS ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) According to an embodiment, a device for tightening an article includes a housing, a spool rotatably positioned within the housing, a knob operably coupled with the spool to cause the spool to rotate within the housing, and a stop mechanism. The device is configured so that incremental rotation of the knob in a first direction causes a corresponding incremental rotation of the spool within the housing that incrementally tensions a tension member and thereby tightens the article. The device is also configured so that incremental rotation of the knob in a second direction causes a corresponding incremental rotation of the spool that incrementally loosens the tension member's tension. The stop mechanism is configured to prevent rotation of the spool in the second direction when the tension member's tension achieves or falls below a tension threshold.
(FR) Un mode de réalisation de l'invention porte sur un dispositif pour serrer un article, lequel dispositif comprend un boîtier, une bobine positionnée de manière rotative à l'intérieur du boîtier, une molette couplée de façon fonctionnelle à la bobine pour amener la bobine à tourner à l'intérieur du boîtier, et un mécanisme d'arrêt. Le dispositif est conçu de telle sorte qu'une rotation incrémentielle de la molette dans une première direction provoque une rotation incrémentielle correspondante de la bobine à l'intérieur du boîtier, qui tend par incréments un élément de tension, et serre par conséquent l'article. Le dispositif est également conçu de telle sorte qu'une rotation incrémentielle de la molette dans une seconde direction provoque une rotation incrémentielle correspondante de la bobine, qui relâche par incréments la tension de l'élément de tension. Le mécanisme d'arrêt est conçu de façon à empêcher une rotation de la bobine dans la seconde direction quand la tension de l'élément de tension atteint un seuil de tension ou chute en dessous de ce dernier.
