TODAY’S PATENT- ARRANGEMENT FOR LOCKING THE SCREWS OF ELECTRIC TERMINALS
Today’s patent ‘Arrangement for locking the screws of electric terminals’ was invented by Juergen Feye-Hohmann on July 3, 2012, bearing patent no. US8209852B2.
The present invention relates to an arrangement for locking the screws of electric terminals having a member or a housing-like element made of an insulting deformable material, and at least one shaft having a shaft wall extending vertically in the housing element. The shaft wall includes profiling in an area thereof that is configured to receive a screw having a screw – head so that the screw is countersunk. The profiling is elastically deformable and configured to deform during insertion of the screw and to elastically return towards an interior of the shaft to secure the screw. And at least one of the shafts and the screw has a non-circular shape. So, this invention is to provide a simple and efficient arrangement for locking screws that allows greater head tolerances.
