Description

  • The invention relates to a plate-like adapter for attaching a piece of luggage to a holder according to the preamble of claim 1 and a luggage system with an adapter and a piece of luggage.
  • For motorized two-wheelers such as motorcycles or scooters, storage space is tight due to the design. Therefore, there are various luggage systems in which luggage suitcases are attached laterally to a luggage rack fixedly connected to the frame of the bicycle or fixed from above on the luggage rack. The luggage cases that can be used for this purpose are optimized for the geometry of the two-wheeler and are usually unhandy to transport. In addition, there is usually a lack of storage space for small purchases, but also for the transport of a crate or a laptop.
  • In the DE 85 26 227 U1 an adapter in the form of a connecting plate is proposed, which allows the attachment of a second luggage suitcase on a first, fixed to a luggage rack of a scooter luggage case.
  • The US 2010/0 170 924 A1 shows a luggage system for a two-wheeler, in which a removable, provided with a telescopic handle and castors carrier is fixed via a rod to a luggage rack of the two-wheeler.
  • The object of the invention is to provide a flexible luggage system that offers many opportunities and z. B. expanded the storage space in a motorized bicycle in a simple manner and / or facilitates the transport of luggage off the bicycle.
  • This object is achieved with a plate-like adapter for attaching a piece of luggage to a holder with the features of claim 1 and a luggage system with the features of claim 10. The adapter is thus interposed between the bracket and the luggage item and can be easily designed so that it provides more storage options and / or transport aids for luggage without the holder or attached to the second fasteners luggage itself would have to be modified.
  • The holder is preferably a luggage rack of a motorized two-wheeler.
  • The item of luggage is preferably a luggage case, which could for example also be mounted directly on the luggage rack. Here in particular a top case, but also a suitcase or a briefcase in question. Described here is an adapter for mounting on top of the bracket, but the invention can also be implemented with a laterally mounted adapter.
  • The luggage piece advantageously has complementary fastening elements to the first fastening elements, so that it can be easily mounted on the adapter plate and released from it again.
  • For example, the first fasteners and the fasteners complementary thereto may have hooks and openings that interlock to lock the joint. Analogous to the known attachment of luggage cases, a locking mechanism may be provided with a sliding latch that allows the locking and unlocking of the luggage item on the adapter.
  • It is possible that the adapter all the mounting options of the holder such as openings, locking hooks, etc. duplicated, so that the adapter without an attached luggage item has exactly the same functionality as the holder. Of course, the adapter may also have other attachment options such as openings, hooks, latching hooks, straps or the like, which go beyond the mounting options of the bracket.
  • The first and the second fastening elements may be complementary to each other, so that the piece of luggage can be mounted directly on the holder without the adapter. However, it is in some cases advantageous to design the adapter so that the first fasteners of the adapter fit within the fasteners of the fastener, and the second fasteners of the adapter are complementary to the fasteners of the garment, but the adapter is used to hold two per se to combine different fastening systems. In this case, the second fastening elements of the adapter can be easily adapted to the respective fastening systems of the item of luggage, for example luggage cases from different manufacturers.
  • In addition, in one preferred embodiment, the adapter has at least one luggage receptacle, so that the adapter provides a possibility of stowing objects even without a luggage case fastened to the adapter.
  • The luggage can be a storage compartment that can be designed, for example in the form of a bag or a folding basket. For a bag, a version is made of a watertight Material useful, preferably a roll closure is provided, which can also form a carrying handle for the bag at the same time.
  • The storage compartment is preferably designed so that it does not protrude beyond the outer dimensions of the adapter in the folded state. Advantageously, the storage compartment is received in the collapsed state in the interior of the adapter in a cavity, so that it does not increase the dimensions of the adapter.
  • To be able to transport the stowed items easily, the storage compartment is preferably detachable from the adapter.
  • In one possible embodiment, the storage compartment is a laptop bag, which makes it possible to stow a portable computer on or in the adapter and, for example, to solve together with the storage compartment of the adapter.
  • In all cases described, the use of the second fastening elements for connection to a luggage case is advantageously possible even when using the storage compartment, so that the transport capacity can be easily increased.
  • In another preferred embodiment, the adapter has rollers and a telescopic handle, so that the bag attached to the adapter becomes a trolley when the adapter is removed from the holder. The adapter forms a carrier with handle and rollers. The bag attached to the adapter, which may be of any kind and is preferably connected solely by the second fasteners to the adapter, can be transported so easily. When the adapter is attached to the bicycle, the rollers and the telescopic handle are arranged in a position in which neither the attachment to the bracket nor the attachment of the luggage to the adapter is disturbed. It would also be possible to provide the adapter only with rollers, so that the adapter can be moved for example by a handle on the luggage on the rollers.
  • Alternatively or additionally, a carrying system with straps on the adapter may be provided so that the luggage can be worn for example on the back.
  • Between the two elements, a storage compartment described above for receiving objects is preferably formed. This becomes accessible by moving the elements against each other. The piece of luggage can remain mounted on the adapter plate, so that, for example, a topcase connected to the adapter is moved together with the second element in order to release the additional storage compartment of the adapter.
  • The two elements can be connected to each other via a hinge, wherein the second element relative to the first element by a predetermined angle, in particular by 90 ° and / or 180 °, can be pivoted and locked in the pivoted position.
  • When pivoting through 90 °, a piece of luggage mounted on the second element preferably rests on a pillion seat of the two-wheeler. If no piece of luggage is mounted on the upper side of the second element, the pillion seat preferably also remains usable.
  • The second element can preferably be pivoted so far in a state mounted on the holder, in particular by approximately 180 °, that it rests on the pillion seat, so that it can be used as an additional transport surface. Of course, such a pivoting is only possible without an additionally mounted piece of luggage on the upper side of the second element.
  • The first fastening elements are advantageously arranged in this embodiment on the underside of the first element, while the second fastening elements are advantageously provided on the upper side of the second element.
  • The upper side of the first element and / or the underside of the second element may have further fastening elements which are provided for detachable connection to another item of luggage. The fasteners may be about hooks or eyes for straps or permanently installed straps. In this way, for example, a crate can be fixed in the 90 ° position of the two elements. The further fasteners lie between the two elements when the adapter is in its folded, closed position.
  • In one possible embodiment, the adapter has a lock mechanism via which the first and / or the second fastening elements of the adapter can be locked and unlocked. This can be achieved a central locking of the luggage on the bracket. The lock mechanism can be designed, for example, so that the adapter with attached luggage easily removed from the holder and can be firmly connected to this again. This is particularly advantageous if the adapter is designed as a carrier for a rolling suitcase.
  • It is generally possible, the first and / or second fasteners theft-proof designed to be lockable, for example via the lock mechanism. In this way, it is possible to prevent the adapter from being unauthorizedly removed from the bicycle or the item of luggage to be unauthorizedly disconnected from the adapter. Even unauthorized opening of the adapter can be prevented.
  • The invention provides a flexible luggage system in which a piece of luggage, which has complementary fastening elements to the second fastening elements, releasably secured to the outside of an adapter described above, and / or wherein the adapter additionally further, z. B. accommodated in a storage compartment inside the adapter housed luggage.
