Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 160: Flexible Or Portable Closure, Partition, Or Panel

Devices in the form of one or more flexible panel unit; for plural strips, slats, or panels interconnected for relative motion; or partitions, including those completely rigid and/or portable, in the form of portable partitioning panel units. Combinations the above, with rigid panel units, including rigid closures, or with other structure not elsewhere provided. Flexible panel units are considered to be all those in which a flexible fabric or other flexible sheet material forms the panel portion, even though it may have a rigid frame, rigid enforcements, rigid support means for one or more edges thereof, or combinations of these features.

Subclass 370.21: Automobile windshield weather protector or sunshield

Class 24: Buckles, Buttons, Clasps, Etc.

Buckles, buttons, clasps, cord and rope holders, pins, separable fasteners, etc., which have become so varied in use and so allied in structure as to belong to no specific art, but are novel only as to their structures. There are, however, several types of fastenings included where the devices are but slightly identified with the art and are closely analogous to the main titles above cited. Such patents are retained under more or less art titles. Devices which embrace fastenings as above, but also include elements which connect them with various specific arts, have been excluded as far as practicable.

Subclass 459: Dissociable gripping members

This class is the locus for the following types of fasteners: An anchoring-type or holding-type fastener; a tool driven externally threaded fastener (eg. bolt, screw); a tool driven internally threaded fastener (eg. nut); an impact driven fastener (eg. nail, staple); a tool driven or discrete, headed, elongated-shank fastener adapted to be moved along its longitudinal axis into coaxial apertures in a workpiece; a tool deformed or tool driven fastener (eg. cotter pin) which is closely allied in use with the other fasteners of this class. This class is also the locus for a threaded bolt or a threaded nut.
