Claims

1 . A housing (4) for a tyre parameter monitoring system, the housing (4) comprising:

two arms (10, 12) that are shaped and spaced to provide a clamp-in fitting (18) for engaging with a valve stem (34) of a clamp-in type valve (30) such that the valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) is pivotably engaged with the housing (4) and such that the angle between the valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) and the housing (4) is variable, and

a snap connection fitting (16) for engaging a valve stem (8) of a snap-in type valve (6), wherein the snap connection fitting (16) is positioned between the two arms (10, 12).

2. A housing (4) according to claim 1 , wherein the arms (10, 12) protrude from an upper surface (14) of the housing (4) and the snap connection fitting (16) protrudes from the upper surface (14) of the housing (4) and is spaced apart from the arms (10, 12).

3. A housing (4) according to claim 1 or claim 2, wherein the two arms (10, 12) cooperate to provide the clamp-in (18) fitting.

4. A housing (4) according to one of claims 1 to 3, wherein each arm (10, 12) comprises a slot (28) in an inner surface, the slots (28) cooperating to engage a valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) such that the valve stem (34) is pivotably engaged with the housing (4).

5. A housing (4) according to one of claims 1 to 4, wherein the two arms (10, 12) are connected by a web portion (20) forming an aperture (22), the aperture (22) being sized and shaped such that the valve stem (8) of the snap-in type valve (6) or the valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) is insertable through the aperture (22).

6. A housing (4) according to claim 5, wherein the web portion (20) comprises two slots (28) in an inner surface, the slots (28) engaging the valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) such that the valve stem (34) is pivotably engaged with the slots (28).

7. A housing (4) according to claim 6, wherein the snap connection fitting (16) is spaced apart from the web portion (20).

8. A housing (4) according to claim 4 or claim 6, wherein the slots (28) are arcuate and engage a bar (32) of the valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) such that the valve stem (34) is pivotably engaged with the housing (4).

9. A housing according to one of claims 1 to 8, wherein the snap connection fitting (16) comprises an opening (26) for accepting a valve stem (8) of a snap-in type valve (6).

10. A housing according to one of claims 1 to 9, wherein the valve stem (8) of the snap-in type valve (6) is attachable to the snap connection fitting (16) by a screw (24).

1 1 . A housing (4) according to one of claims 1 to 10, wherein

a sensor unit for monitoring a tyre pressure is positioned in the housing (4).

12. A tyre parameter monitoring system (2), comprising:

the housing (4) of one of claims 1 to 1 1 , and

a snap-in-type valve (6),

wherein a valve stem (8) of the snap-in type valve (6) is adapted to be secured to the snap connection fitting (16) by a screw (24).

13. A tyre parameter monitoring system (2’), comprising:

the housing (4) of one of claims 1 to 1 1 , and

a clamp-in-type valve (30),

wherein the clamp-in type valve (30) comprises a bar (32) adapted to engage with a slot (28) in the housing (4) to pivotably engage a valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) with the housing (4) and such that the angle between the valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) and the housing (4) is variable.

14. A method for mounting a tyre parameter monitoring system (2) to a rim of a wheel, comprising:

inserting a valve stem (8) of a snap-in type valve (6) into the snap connection fitting (16) of the housing (4) of one of claims 1 to 1 1 ;

securing the valve stem (8) to the snap connection fitting (16) of the housing (4) by a screw (24) to form an assembly,

mounting the assembly on a bore in the rim of the wheel, thereby mounting the snap-in type valve (6) on an outer surface of the rim of the wheel and the housing (4) on an inner surface of the rim of the wheel with a fixed angular position between the housing (4) and the valve stem (8).

15. A method for mounting a tyre parameter monitoring system (2’) to a wheel rim, comprising:

placing a valve stem (34) of a clamp-in type valve (30) into the clamp-in fitting (18) of the housing (4) of one of claims 1 to 1 1 to pivotably engage the valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) with the housing (4);

placing a washer over the clamp-in type valve (30), placing a seal (32) over the clamp-in type valve (30) on an outer side of the wheel rim,

inserting the valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) into a hole in the wheel rim from an inner surface of the wheel rim;

and

securing the valve (30) to the wheel rim by engaging a nut (38) with outer thread of the clamp-in type valve (30) such that the angle between the valve stem (34) of the clamp-in type valve (30) and the housing (4) is adapted to the wheel rim.
