TODAY’S PATENT – CUFFLINK TECHNOLOGY
The Cufflink technology was invented by Kyle C. Stoehr on 27th August 2013 bearing patent number US8516663B2.
The present invention relates to various cufflink embodiments. In some embodiments, the cufflink has opposed first and second heads that are releasably locked relative to each other. In some embodiments, the opposed first and second heads can be locked releasably in multiple positions with respect to each another. In other embodiments, a stud or cufflink includes a removable decorative insert. In certain embodiments, a cufflink includes a retention structure configured to temporarily retain part of the cufflink on a shirt cuff. Some embodiments provide a cufflink having an actuator protected against inadvertent actuation.
It also provides an adjustable cufflink and shirt cuff combination. The present combination includes a shirt cuff having a set of four cuff holes and a cufflink comprising a first head and a second head. In the present embodiments, the first and second heads of the cufflink are each too large to pass through any one of the four cuff holes. The adjustable cufflink has a separated configuration in which the first and second heads are in a detached state. In these embodiments, the cufflink has a locking mechanism configured to releasably lock the first and second heads in either of two positions.
