WO/2016/112452 A COUNTERBALANCE APPARATUS AND/OR METHOD FOR SUPPORTING A LOAD||WO||21.07.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/000023||CENTRE FOR IMAGING TECHNOLOGY COMMERCIALIZATION (CIMTEC)||BAX, Jeffrey|
A counterbalance apparatus for supporting a load is provided. The apparatus includes a base, a load bearing arm, a toggle linkage, and first and second resilient members for applying a force to the load bearing arm. The load bearing arm consists of a plurality of pivot points forming a parallelogram linkage, may project from the base at an attachment point and is adapted to support the load at a distal end. The toggle linkage may be pivotally connected to the base and moveable between a non-load bearing position and a load bearing position. The toggle linkage may also comprise an adjustment member positioned to define a distance relative to the attachment point. The first resilient member is adapted to apply a force to the load bearing arm and may have a first end connected to a first portion of the parallelogram linkage and a second end connected to the adjustment member; and the second resilient member is also adapted to apply a force to the load bearing arm and may have a first end connected to a second portion of the parallelogram linkage and a second end connected to the adjustment member. Movement of the toggle linkage from the non-load bearing position to the load bearing position engages the forces of the resilient members and movement of the adjustment member varies the distance to adjust a support vector adapted to counterbalance the load vector.
WO/2016/112454 HIGH SECURITY LOCKING SYSTEM WHICH FORMS A DEVIATING PICKING PATH AND ASSOCIATED DEVIATED KEY||WO||21.07.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/050965||BOWLEY LOCK COMPANY INC.||BOWLEY, Ryan Thomas|

The lock housing may further comprise a face plate with a keyhole for receiving the deviated key and first pin slots disposed within the lock housing. The high security locking system may comprise a lock cylinder disposed within the lock housing and include second pin slots disposed within the lock cylinder. An idler block may be disposed within the lock cylinder and may be rotatable, which may allow the deviated key to align with one or more of the second pin slots in the lock cylinder. Additionally, a stationary block may be disposed within the lock cylinder and the deviated key may rotate around the lock without interfering with the stationary block.
WO/2016/112453 RATCHET WRENCH WITH A FINE SOCKET-INDEXING MECHANISM||WO||21.07.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/000609||OTTERSON, Randy||OTTERSON, Randy|
A method for operating a ratchet wrench having a tangential belt drive mechanism and a ratchet gear therein, including the steps of momentary pulling on the driven end of the belt for rotating the ratchet gear during a forward cycle; continually applying a first resilient tension force on the return end of the belt; continually applying a resilient compression force on the driven end of the belt of a same magnitude as the first resilient tension force toward the return end of the belt, and relaxing the step of pulling and allowing the belt to return to an initial position of the belt before the step of pulling. In another aspect of the present invention, there is provided a tangential drive mechanism comprising a first and second springs, one on each side of the ratchet gear and each acting on the belt toward a return end of the belt.
WO/2016/112458 WHEEL CHOCK DEVICE||WO||21.07.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/000013||IGUANE TECHNOLOGIES INC.||RANCOURT, Denis|
A wheel chock (40) has a profile that provides maximum restraining capacity when the wheel (22) is completely supported thereby, by mitigating undesirable failure modes while promoting the safest failure mode of operation, slipping on ground (30). The profile includes a generally flat bottom surface (46) for being in contact with a ground surface (30), a substantially broken top surface (44) for being in contact with the wheel (22), the top surface (44) including a first contact point (P1), a second contact point (P2), and a contact surface (52) there between allowing at most two points of contact at a time between the contact surface (52) and the wheel (22), with the second contact point (P2) being one of the two points of contact. A more specific clothoid profile of the contact surface (52) is preferred to minimize the rate of variation of the contact force of the wheel (22) with the chock (40).
