TODAY’S PATENT – SHOCK ABSORBING HAMMER
The invention is invented by Alex Chen and is currently assigned to Lucky Brand Industrial Co Ltd. The patent was granted by the USPTO and was published on 23-10-204 with the patent no. US20140311299A1. The present invention introduces a novel shock absorbing hammer design that addresses key drawbacks found in the prior art.
In the prior art, the head tube of the hammer was filled solely with rigid pellets, resulting in issues like unpredictable pellet movement and ineffective rebound control. This design made it easy for users to sustain hand injuries due to unstable pellet behavior, and the pellets themselves suffered damage from collisions, reducing shock absorption efficiency. Moreover, the head tube’s hollow shell structure lacked the durability needed to withstand external striking forces.
In contrast, the present invention addresses the issues enhances stability and shock-absorbing capabilities by incorporating two separate housing compartments within the main frame of the hammer. Each housing contains a pellet assembly, comprising specific quantities of both rigid and soft pellets.
This innovative combination of pellet types ensures improved rebound control, stability, and shock absorption during usage. Furthermore, the introduction of soft pellets alongside rigid ones minimizes pellet surface damage from internal collisions and enhances the hammer’s overall durability, making it capable of withstanding external striking forces effectively.
