Title: REELING APPARATUS FOR SPOOLING A FLEXIBLE MEMBER THEREFROM
Abstract:
A reeling apparatus (100) for spooling a flexible member therefrom includes a body (102) defining a first cylindrical passageway (104) extending axially therethrough, and a first recess (106) located partway along a length of the first cylindrical passageway (104). The first recess (106) extends radially away from an axis (XX') of the first cylindrical passageway (104) to be bound by a plurality of walls (108) from the body (102) that are arranged in a polygonal configuration about the axis (XX'). The reeling apparatus (100) also includes a telescopic handle (110) slidably disposed in the first cylindrical passageway (104) and extending through the first recess (106). Further, the reeling apparatus (100) includes a clasping element (112) located in the first recess (106) and disposed about the telescopic handle (110). The clasping element (112) has an outer circumference (C1) defining at least one bulged portion (114) thereon. The clasping element (112) is rotatable about the axis (XX') between an unlocked position (P1) in which the bulged portion (114) is disposed exterior to the first recess (106) so as to be located outwards of the body (102), and a locked position (P2) in which the bulged portion (114) is located within the first recess (106) and wedged between an outer circumference (C2) of the telescopic handle (110) and at least one proximate wall (108b) from the plurality of walls (108) so as to lock a position of the telescopic handle (110) in relation to the body (102).
