[0066] 各个锁定夹接收器组件M包括一个具有一个中间部分58的狭槽(slot) 56和两个位于中间部分58的对边上的锁定部分60。 [0066] The respective locking clip receiver assembly M comprises a having a central slot portion 58 (slot) 56, and two in the middle portion 58 of the locking portion 60 on opposite sides of the. 狭槽56的中间部分58具有上表面62,上表面62是各个锁定部分60的上表面64的延续。 Slot 56 of the intermediate portion 58 has an upper surface 62, upper surface 62 is the upper surface of each locking portion 60 of the continuation 64. 然而,中间部分58的下表面66、68和两个锁定部分60分别具有梯状结构。 However, the intermediate lower surface 66, portion 58 and two locking portions 60 each have a ladder-like structure. 尤其是,如图5和6所示,中间部分58具有在其上表面62 和下表面66之间的高度h2。 In particular, Figures 5 and 6, the intermediate portion 58 has an upper surface 62 and lower surface 66 between the height h2. 两个锁定部分60具有在其上表面64和下表面68之间的高度hi。 Two locking portions 60 have a height hi between the upper surface 64 and lower surface 68. 在表示的实施例中,高度h2大于高度hi。 In the shown embodiment, the height h2 greater than the height hi. 此外,中间部分58的高度h2近似等于中间支撑突出部42的高度h2,并且,两个锁定部分60的高度hi近似等于各个弹簧臂36的前面部分的高度hi。 Further, the intermediate height h2 of portion 58 is approximately equal to the intermediate support height h2 of the protruding portion 42, and, two locking height hi portion 60 is approximately equal to the height hi front portion of each spring arm 36. 这一配置使得锁定夹观和锁定夹接收器组件M之间的连接容易,如将被进一步讨论的。 This configuration such that the locking clip concept and the locking clip connection between the receiver module M easily, as will be discussed further.

[0067] 如图7所示,各个锁定部分60包括位于其外壁上的锁定法兰70,用于与锁定夹观的锁定突出部38啮合。 [0067] As shown in FIG 7, each locking portion 60 comprises an outer wall of the locking flange 70 for the locking 38 engaging projection clip View.

[0068] 中间部分58包括从下表面66向上朝着上表面62延伸的壁72。 [0068] The intermediate portion 58 comprises a wall upwards towards the upper surface 62 extends from the lower surface 6672. 在表示的实施例中,壁72近似延伸到上表面62的一半的路程。 In the shown embodiment, the wall 72 extends approximately to the half of the surface 62 of the distance.

[0069] 在表示的实施例中,第一连接器部分M与框架12整体地模制在一起。 [0069] In the embodiment shown, the portion M of the frame of the first connector 12 are integrally molded together. 如图5和10所示,框架12还包括一个孔80和轴环(collar) 82,轴环82适合于容纳旋转弯头22 (图1和幻。轴环82具有从孔80水平和径向延伸的轮缘84。为了形成轴环82,如果铸模能够水平地脱出,那么这是有利的。然而,期望头饰相对于框架12以一个角度出现。第一连接器部分M以相对于水平的近似5%的角度θ向下调整。当框架12被模制时,模制部件应该在水平方向收回,形成轴环82。如图7所示,在中间部分58的下表面66、68和锁定部分60之间的接合处,分别被排列构成角度α,角度α它足够的宽,能够使得铸模的边在水平方向脱出。又,有角度的接合使得在锁定夹观和锁定夹接收器组件M之间的连接容易。 5 and 7, the frame 1012 further includes a bore 80 and the collar (a collar) 82, the collar 82 is adapted to receive the rotary bend 22 (FIG. 1 and Magic The collar 82 has a horizontal from the aperture 80 and radially rim 84. the extending order to form the collar 82, if the mold can be horizontally emerge, then this is advantageous, however, desirable hair relative to the frame 12 occurs at an angle. the first connector portion M is approximated to the horizontal 5% of the angle θ downward adjustment. when 12 is molded frame, molded part to be retracted in the horizontal direction to form the collar 82. as shown in FIG. 7, in the middle of the lower surfaces 66, 68 part 58 and the locking portion the junction between the 60, are arranged in an angle [alpha], the angle [alpha] which is wide enough, it is possible that the edge of the mold coming out in the horizontal direction. in addition, the angled engagement such that the locking clip concept and the locking clip receiver assembly M easily between connections.

[0070] 如图9所示,锁定夹观的前面部分34和后面部分32相对于彼此以角度β布置。 As shown in [0070] FIG 9, the locking front clip View portion 34 and rear portion 32 with respect to the angle β is arranged each other. 在表示的实施例中,相对于水平,后面部分有一个朝下的角度,而前面部分32通常被调整成水平。 In the embodiment represented, relative to the horizontal, the back portion having a downward angle, while the front portion 32 is generally adjusted to a level. 通过使用这一角度,锁定夹观从面罩不突出。 Using this angle, the locking clip concept does not protrude from the mask. 而且,头饰带子以一个角度连接到锁定夹观,其更自然地与面部的轮廓一致。 Also, headgear straps at an angle is connected to the locking clip concept, which is more natural agreement with the contours of the face. 在本发明的一个替换形式中,前面和后面部分34、32可以弯曲以获得在前面和后面之间的一个角度差。 In an alternative form of the invention, the front and rear portions 34, 32 may be bent at an angle obtained between the front and rear differential. 两者方法的优点是:进入可滑动地容纳第二连接器的前面部分34的第一连接器部分M的狭槽56通常可以是水平的。 The advantages of both methods are: entering slidably receiving slot in front of the second connector of the first connector portion 34 of the portion M, 56 may be generally horizontal. 在制造过程期间这是有利的,因为这意味着:铸模的边可以水平地收回,有助于形成轴环82。 During the manufacturing process which is advantageous, because it means that: the mold sides can be horizontally retracted, contribute to the formation of the collar 82.

[0071] 如图8-9所示,狭槽56的锁定部分60适合于容纳一对弹簧臂36中的一个,各个弹簧臂36的锁定突出部38与设置在各自的锁定部分60中的锁定法兰70互锁以可拆卸地附接锁定夹观,进而附接头饰组件到框架12。 , The lock [0071] Figure 8-9 the slot 56 of the portion 60 is adapted to receive one of the spring arms 36 a pair of locking each spring arm 36 of the locking portion 60 of the projecting portion 38 provided in the respective locking flange 70 interlock to removably attach the locking clip concept, and further attachment headgear assembly to the frame 12. 当锁定夹观插入锁定夹接收器组件M中以提供对锁定夹观的附加支撑时,各个锁定夹观的肩状部分40啮合设置在框架12上的啮合面74。 When the locking clip concept inserted into the locking clip receiver assembly M to provide engagement surfaces for locking the additional support clip concept, shoulder respective locking clip View portion 40 engages is provided on the frame 12 74. 锁定突出部38可以与在锁定部分60中设置的底切部(undercut)互锁,从而可拆卸地将锁定夹观附接到框架12。 The locking protrusion 38 can interlock with the undercut (undercut) provided in the locking portion 60, thereby detachably locking clip concept attached to the frame 12. 又,各个锁定突出部38可以通过设置在锁定部分60的外壁内的狭槽延伸。 Furthermore, each locking projection 38 can be provided in the locking slot in the outer wall portion 60 extends. 狭槽不必通过锁定部分60的外壁延伸。 The slots need not extend through the outer wall portion 60 of the lock.

[0072] 当锁定夹观和锁定夹接收器组件M啮合时,中间支撑突出部42插入到狭槽56 的中间部分58中,从而防止锁定夹观和锁定夹接收器组件M之间的相对移动。 [0072] When the locking clip concept and the locking clip receiver assembly M when engaged, the intermediate support projecting portion 42 is inserted into the intermediate portion 58 of the slot 56, thereby preventing the locking clip concept and the relative movement between the receiver module M a locking clip .

[0073] 尤其是,当锁定夹观插入在锁定夹接收器组件M中时,由于锁定突出部38插入狭槽56的各个锁定部分60中,并且缩上去且超过锁定法兰70,所以弹簧臂36相互面对施加力(按照如在图3中所示的箭头A的方向)。 [0073] In particular, when the locking clip concept inserted in the locking clip receiver assembly M in time, because the locking tabs 38 inserted into the slot 56 of each locking portion 60, and the ride up and over the locking flange 70, so the spring arm 36 face of applying a force (in as direction of arrow a in FIG. 3 in) with each other. 一旦锁定突出部38已经跳过各个锁定法兰70,弹簧臂36能够向外弹(按照如在图3中所示的箭头A的相反的方向),以在锁定突出部38和锁定法兰70之间提供锁定啮合。 Once the locking protrusion 38 has skipped the respective locking flanges 70, the spring arms 36 can spring outwardly (as such in the opposite direction in FIG. 3 arrow A shown), to the locking projection 38 and the locking flange 70 provide a locking engagement between. 在狭槽56的锁定部分60中提供足够的间隙,允许为跳过锁定法兰70所必需的锁定突出部38的移动。 Provide sufficient clearance in the locking portion 60 of the slot 56, allows to skip the locking flange 70 necessary for movement of the locking projection 38.

[0074] 中间支撑突出部42被构造成具有与狭槽56的中间部分58的紧密配合,使得:当中间支撑突出部42插入到中间部分58中时,在锁定夹观和锁定夹接收器组件M之间允许有小量的转动、摇动或平行移动。 [0074] The intermediate support projecting portion 42 is configured to have an intermediate slot 56 of the mating portion 58, such that: when the intermediate support protrusion is inserted into the middle when the portion 5842, the locking clip concept and the locking clip receiver assembly in allows rotation of a small amount of between M, shaking or parallel movement. 中间支撑突出部42比弹簧臂36长以有助于对准到狭槽56。 Intermediate support projecting portion 42 than the spring arm 36 length to facilitate alignment of the slot 56. 又,中间支撑突出部42的凹槽44与设置在狭槽56的中间部分58中的壁72啮合, 使得中间支撑突出部42进入狭槽56的中间部分58容易。 Further, the intermediate support protruding portions grooves 44 provided engagement walls 72 in the middle portion 58 of the slot 56, 42, so that the intermediate support projecting portion 42 into the middle slots 56 of the portion 58 easily. 作为选择,中间支撑突出部42 可以具有与设置在狭槽56的中间部分58中的凹槽啮合的突出部分。 Alternatively, the intermediate support projecting portion 42 may have a projecting portion and the recess is provided in the middle portion 58 of the slot 56 in the engaged. 又,中间支撑突出部42具有一个与确定狭槽56的中间部分58的形状的角度α互补的形状。 Further, the intermediate support projecting portion 42 having a α and determining an intermediate slot 56 shaped angle portion 58 of complementary shape.

[0075] 因为中间部分58的高度h2近似等于中间支撑突出部42的高度h2,并且两个锁定部分60的高度hi近似等于各个弹簧臂36的前面部分的高度hl,所以狭槽56的锁定部分60有足够的高度以容纳各个弹簧臂36的前面部分,但是不足以容纳中间支撑突出部42。 [0075] Since the height h2 of the intermediate portion 58 is approximately equal to the intermediate support height h2 of the protruding portion 42, and two locking height hi portion 60 is approximately equal to the height hl front portion of each spring arm 36, the locking portions of the slots 56 60 have sufficient height to accommodate the front portion of each spring arm 36, but not enough to hold the intermediate support protrusion 42. 即,中间支撑突出部42太厚以致于不能固定到狭槽56的锁定部分60中。 That is, the intermediate support projecting portion 42 is too thick so that the can not be fixed to the locking portion 60 of the slot 56. 由于这种配置, 对病人来说锁定夹观是否已经正确地与锁定夹接收器组件M啮合将是清楚的。 Due to this configuration, for patients locking clip concept have been correctly with the locking assembly M engagement receivers will be apparent folder. 因此,病人不会不注意地以偶尔会松开的方式部分地将锁定夹观装配到锁定夹接收器组件M。 Thus, the patient does not inadvertently to occasionally releasably partially locking clip concept fitted into the locking clip receiver assembly M. 例如,图11是表示锁定夹观相对于锁定夹接收器组件M的第一不正确位置,以及图12是表示锁定夹观相对于锁定夹接收器组件M的第二不正确位置。 For example, FIG. 11 is a locking clip concept relative to the locking clip of the first incorrect position of the receiver assembly M, and FIG. 12 is a locking clip concept relative to the locking clip second incorrect position of the receiver module M. 在这两者情况中,病人不能够将较厚的中间支撑突出部42插入到狭槽56的较薄的锁定部分60中。 In both cases, the patient can not be thicker intermediate support projecting portion 42 is inserted into the thin locking portion 60 of the slot 56.

[0076] 为了从锁定夹接收器组件M中释放锁定夹观,病人简单地将弹簧臂36相互对着施加力,从各个锁定法兰70去除锁定突出部38。 [0076] In order from the locking clip receiver assembly M release locking clamp concept, the patient simply spring arms 36 towards each other a force is applied from the respective locking flange 70 is removed the lock projection 38. 然后,病人从框架12朝外拉出锁定夹28, 以从锁定夹接收器组件M中脱离锁定夹观。 The patient then from 12 outwardly frame drawn locking clip 28 to the receiver module M are disengaged from the locking clip locking clip View.

[0077] 如在图8中所示,锁定夹38和中间突出部42具有圆形的或等高线的边缘,使得进入狭槽56容易。 [0077] As shown in Figure 8, the locking clip 38 and the intermediate protruding portion 42 edge has a circular or contour line, such that the entrance to the slot 56 easily. 又,优选地,锁定夹观和框架12的朝外的表面优选地形成一个普通的同延的连续表面,其在连接时不中断。 Further, preferably, the locking clip concept and the frame outwardly facing surface 12 is preferably formed in a common continuous surface coextensive, which is not interrupted when connected. 优选地,锁定夹观与侧面框架构件52 —样宽,这使得由病人感触锁定夹观的位置容易。 Preferably, the locking clip view and side frame members 52 - samples wide, which makes the patient feel locking clip View position easily.

[0078] 弹簧臂36被设计成在锁定夹主体30的平面里弯曲,这进一步改善锁定夹观被连接和分离。 [0078] The spring arms 36 are designed to be bent in the plane of the locking clip main body 30's, which further improves the locking clip concept are connected and disconnected. 这种定位改善向上和向下弯曲弹簧臂的人类工程学。 Such improved positioning upwardly and downwardly bent spring arm ergonomics. 如在图10中所示,病人的拇指和对着的食指能够被用于容易地定位和操作锁定夹观。 As the patient's thumb and opposing finger shown in Figure 10 it can be used to readily locate and operate the locking clips View. 弹簧臂36的向外表面可以包括一系列的突出部分76,使得通过病人紧握锁定夹观容易(参见图8)。 Outer surface of the spring arm 36 may comprise a series of projecting portion 76, so that the clip concept easily by the patient gripping the lock (see FIG. 8). 又,锁定夹观被连接到头饰组件的带子,使得可以提供长度的调整。 Further, the locking clip concept strap is connected to the headgear assembly, making it possible to provide length adjustment.

[0079] 头饰连接组件20的一个优点是:与配备在每一个侧面框架构件52上的锁定夹接收器组件M —起,能够使用一个锁定夹28,因此,减少制造成本和对库存的需求。 One advantage of the [0079] headgear connection assembly 20 is: a receiver module M and provided on each side frame member 52 of the locking clip - since, it is possible to use a locking clip 28, thus reducing the manufacturing cost and the need for inventory.
