Furthermore, the invention relates to a swivel part for a sanitary equipment item, which in particular has a joint arrangement according to the invention.

Description

  • The invention relates to a joint arrangement, in particular for a wall-mounted sanitary ware, with at least one a wall-mountable base part, a swivel part that by means of a Bearing axis rotatably mounted on the base part and in particular between a vertical and horizontal position is pivotable, and at least one switched between base part and swivel part and as Fall brake acting spring, against the restoring force of the swivel part in its horizontal position is movable. The invention further relates to a Swivel part for a sanitary ware, in particular has a joint arrangement according to the invention.
  • In principle, such joint arrangements are known, for example from DE 32 38 889 C2. Such joint arrangements are used for example in wall-mounted folding seats or support handles. So that such folding seats or support handles are easier and safer are operated, a spring element is provided in the joint arrangement, which is typically oriented in such a way that the restoring force of the Counteracts the force of gravity. This is how it works Spring element when pivoting the folding seat or Support arm from a vertical position to a horizontal position as a fall brake and prevents the pivoting part from moving downward is accelerated excessively and accordingly one Risk of injury. Conversely, the restoring force of the spring element the upward movement of the swivel part from its horizontal into its supports vertical position, so that the swivel part can be folded up only slight additional forces have to be used. With more suitable Choosing the spring element may even be sufficient just lift the swivel part a little to get the swivel movement in initiate the vertical position, which is due solely to the restoring force of the spring element is completed. Well known Joint arrangements of the type mentioned, however, have the disadvantage that the Spring elements show signs of fatigue after frequent use can, both leading to a reduced effect as a fall brake as well to a reduced support when folding up the swivel part leads. In this case, for example, a brake can drop down without braking Hinged support handle injure a person who use this handle intended.
  • The invention has for its object to provide a joint arrangement to create greater security and a joint arrangement of the entry to improve the type mentioned so that a reliable Function of the spring is guaranteed permanently.
  • To solve the problem is a joint arrangement with the features of claim 1 provided.
  • A joint arrangement according to the invention is distinguished from one Joint arrangement of the type mentioned in that the Restoring force of the spring is adjustable. In this way, the Resetting force of the spring at any time according to the external circumstances to adjust. In particular, the spring can be re-tensioned. H. the Increase the restoring force if, for example, frequent movement of the Swivel part fatigue of the spring, d. H. a decrease in the Restoring force has occurred. Through the targeted adjustment of the restoring force the spring and in particular by re-tensioning the spring the desired return force of the spring can be ensured at all times. As a result, a predetermined restoring force of the spring can be permanent ensured and spring fatigue compensated.
  • This can prevent such accidents or injuries are being braked by an unbraked or at least poorly braked would be caused to swivel down. Due to the adjustability the restoring force of the spring also ensures that the Swivel part always with the same and in particular small Force can be folded up. Due to the adjustability of the restoring force The spring is therefore easy and safe to use with the Folding seat equipped joint arrangement according to the invention or Support arm permanently ensured.
  • In addition, a joint arrangement according to the invention is more versatile used. In contrast to conventional joint arrangements no longer different for differently dimensioned swivel parts, exactly matched springs are used. Rather, you can use same springs equipped joint arrangements according to the invention in Connection with different sizes and above all different use heavy swivel parts. With these, if necessary only after the assembly of the folding seat or the support folding handle Return force of the spring exactly to the weight of the swivel part to adjust. For example, a smaller swivel part can be used for a smaller one Restoring force and for a comparatively heavy swivel part greater restoring force can be set. Different folding seats or support folding handles can therefore be used with the invention Joint arrangements of the same type and in particular with the same Equip the spring type. This can reduce the number of equipment different folding seats or folding handles required joint arrangements reduced and the manufacture of such folding seats or folding handles is simplified and be made more cost-effective.

  • On the lateral surface 66 of the spring housing 24 , the projections 38 , 39 are each arranged at an angular distance of 90 °. Here, three projections 38 extend over almost the entire length of the lateral surface 66 , while a projection 39 is designed to be significantly shorter. Furthermore, the slot 30 can be seen in the lateral surface 66 , which extends from the open end face of the spring housing 24 in the direction of the bearing axis and serves to receive the second spring end 28 of the spiral spring 22 , which is accommodated in the interior of the spring housing 24 .
  • A cover 32 is placed over the spring housing 24 in the direction of the bearing blocks 12 . The cover 32 is hollow-cylindrical and its depth is adapted to the spring housing 24 . Elongated depressions 40 extending in the direction of the bearing axis are formed on the inner surface of a jacket wall 68 and arranged corresponding to the projections 38 , 39 . In addition, a recess 70 is provided on the inner surface of the jacket wall 68 , which is arranged at a location corresponding to the slot 30 in the spring housing 24 for receiving the second spring end 28 . If the cover 32 is pushed over the spring housing 24 , the projections 38 engaging in the recesses 40 prevent the spring housing 24 from rotating with respect to the cover 32 about the bearing axis 16 .
  • On the end face 72 of the jacket wall 68 facing the bearing block 12 , the bores 44 in the bearing block 12 are arranged in the direction of the bearing axis in the form of pins 42 . In the example shown, there are a total of nineteen pins 42 , each of which has an angular distance of 15 ° to one another. A pin is omitted only at the points where the depressions 40 and the recess 70 are provided. At these points, the angular distance between adjacent pins 42 is 30 ° in each case.
  • If the cover 32 is pushed completely over the spring housing 24 in the assembled state of the joint arrangement, the end face 72 of the casing wall 68 abuts the bearing block 12 and the pins 42 engage in the bores 44 . In this state, the cover 32 is consequently secured against rotation about the bearing axis 16 with respect to the bearing block 12 . Likewise, due to the projections 38 engaging in the depressions 40 , the spring housing 24 is also prevented from rotating with respect to the bearing block 12 around the bearing axis 16 . Correspondingly, the second spring end 28 of the spiral spring 22 is also fixed by the slot 30 . Only the first spring end 26 engaging in the slot 18 of the bearing axis 16 can rotate when the bearing axis 16 is rotated by a movement of the pivoting part relative to the fixed second spring end 28 , which, depending on the direction of rotation, causes tension or relaxation of the spiral spring 22 .
  • In the area of the end face 72 , a bore 74 is provided in the jacket wall 68 , into which a pin 76 can be inserted. The bore 74 is positioned such that an inserted pin 76 engages in a recess 78 located between the bearing block 12 and the short projection 39 and is in particular in contact with the end of the short projection 39 facing the bearing block 12 . The inserted pin 76 acts as a safety device for the cover 32 by preventing the cover 32 from being inadvertently pulled off the spring housing 24 , which would relax the spring. While the pin 76 must first be pulled out of the recess 78 to completely remove the cover 32 , for example by means of a tool (not shown), it has sufficient freedom of movement in the recess 78 to enable the cover 32 to be partially pulled off for unlocking.
  • Furthermore, as shown in FIG. 5, in the end face 80 of the cover 32 facing away from the bearing block 12 , in addition to a feedthrough 82 for the bearing axis 16, two opposite functional openings 84 , each of which have a quarter-ring design, are provided, each of which has a circular extension 86 at its central section exhibit. The functional openings 84 serve to actuate the cover 32 by a tool 88 .
  • The tool 88 shown in FIG. 6 comprises an essentially cylindrical body 90 through which a lever rod 92 extends perpendicular to the cylinder axis. In the center of one end face of the body 90 , a bore or blind bore 94 is provided, the diameter of which is adapted to that of the bearing axis 16 . On each opposite side of the bore 94 there are two pegs 96 , the free ends of which each merge into a circular plate 98 which is spaced from the end face of the body 90 and is oriented parallel to the latter. The diameters of the plates 98 are each adapted to the diameter of the circular extensions 86 of the functional openings 84 in the cover 32 .
  • To rotate the cover 32 , the end face of the body 90 of the tool 88 is brought into contact with the end face 80 of the cover 32 such that the pins 96 engage in the functional openings 84 . For this purpose, the plates 98 are first introduced into the circular extensions 86 of the functional openings 84 . The tool 88 is then rotated with respect to the cover 32 by means of the lever rod 92 until the pins 96 abut the respective ends of the functional openings 84 . In this position, the plates 98 engage behind the functional openings 84 . By applying a force in the direction of the bearing axis, the cover 32 can be pulled away from the bearing block 12 by the tool 88 to such an extent that the pins 42 are removed from the bores 44 . It should be noted here that the projections 38 , 39 of the spring housing 24 remain in engagement with the depressions 40 of the cover 32 , so that a prestressed spiral spring 22 does not accidentally set the spring housing 24 in rotation.
  • In the unlocked position of the cover 32 , the cover 32 can now be rotated in the corresponding direction around the bearing axis 16 with the aid of the tool 88 for tensioning or relaxing the coil spring 22 . In this way, the restoring force of the spring is adjustable. Once the desired restoring force of the spring has been reached, the cover 32 is brought back into contact with the bearing block 12 , the pins 42 now engaging in the bores 44 offset by a certain number of pins. The tool 88 is then released from the cover 32 .
  • In the described embodiment here to the cover 32 should the backup ring 34 are removed from the bearing shaft 16 before unlocking the cover 32 and especially before attaching the tool 88 on the cover 32nd However, the use of such a safety ring 34 can be dispensed with if an alternative embodiment of the cover 32 is used. In this cover 32 , which is described in FIG. 7, two leaf springs 100 are provided opposite one another with respect to the feed-through 82 of the bearing axis 16 , which are arranged offset by 90 ° around the feed-through 82 in relation to the functional openings 84 . The leaf springs 100 press respectively a locking element 102 in the implementation of 82 in, the lock members 102 respectively engage with an attached cover 32 in which the ends of the bearing axis 16 annular groove 36 located and prevent movement of the cover 32 in Lagerachsrichtung. For the protection of the leaf springs 100 is disposed between coil spring 22 and leaf spring 100 has a circular and can be screwed to the end face 80 of the cover 32 cover plate 104 is provided.
  • Is for unlocking the cover 32 the tool 88, as just described, associated with the cover 32 in engagement and as far relative to the cover 32 is rotated, the pins 96 abut the ends of the functional openings 84, the leaf springs 100 respectively as far as the Plate 98 of the pin 96 is pushed back so that the locking elements 102 are moved out of the feedthrough 82 and are disengaged from the annular groove 36 . With such a cover 32, the unlocking and unlocking can consequently be carried out in one step.
  • In FIG. 8, a second variant of the hinge assembly according to the invention is shown. In this embodiment too, a base plate 210 is provided for fastening the joint arrangement to, for example, a wall, to which a first bearing block 212 and a second bearing block 214 are fastened for mounting a bearing axis 216 . The bearing blocks 212 , 214 delimit a receiving space 218 for receiving a hollow cylindrical spring housing 220 surrounding the bearing axis, in which a spiral spring 222 surrounding the bearing axis 216 is accommodated, with a first spring end 224 engaging in a slot 226 located in the bearing axis 216 the bearing axis 216 is freezing and a second spring end 228 is fixed to the spring housing 220 by engaging in a slot 230 provided on the inner surface of the spring housing 220 .
  • The end face of the spring housing 220 facing the second bearing block 214 is closed by a base plate 230 , while a circular cover plate 231 is provided to cover the opposite, open end face.
  • The outer circumferential surface of the spring housing 220 is designed as a helical toothing 232 , in which a latching body 236 attached to a latching spring 234 engages. Locking spring 234 and locking body 236 are arranged in a recess 238 specially designed for this purpose in the second bearing block 214 . In this way, a locking device is created, by means of which the spring housing 220 and thus also the spiral spring 222 can be locked against rotation with respect to the bearing blocks 212 , 214 around the bearing axis 216 . The helical toothing 232 is oriented on the outer circumferential surface of the spring housing 220 in such a way that rotation of the spring housing 220 in the direction that would lead to a relaxation of the spiral spring 222 is prevented by the latching device and is only possible when the latching device is unlocked, while by slipping the oblique teeth through the locking device while overcoming a resistance, a rotation in the direction can be realized in which the coil spring 222 is tensioned more.
  • To support the bearing axis 216 in the bearing blocks 212 , 214 , bearing disks 240 are provided at the ends of the bearing axis 216 , which engage in correspondingly dimensioned bearing openings 242 in the bearing blocks 212 , 214 . In order to permanently ensure good bearing properties, such as low friction and / or low wear, either the bearing disks 240 or the bearing blocks 212 , 214 are made of a metal and the other bearing part is made of a plastic material. Three threaded bores 243 and a fourth bore 244 are provided in the bearing disks 240 , the purpose of which is explained below.
  • In the bearing blocks 212 , 214 , two opposing quarter-circle-shaped links 252 are arranged around the bearing openings 242 , the purpose of which is also explained below.
  • In the assembled state of the joint arrangement, a protective cover 246 is placed over the bearing blocks 212 , 214 . An opening 248 for actuating the latching device is provided in the protective cover 246 in order to bring the latching body 236 out of engagement with the helical toothing 232 by means of a tool. Circular openings 250 which are adapted to the bearing openings 242 of the bearing blocks 212 , 214 are arranged in the end faces of the protective cover 246 . Corresponding to the scenes 252 , 254 provided in the bearing blocks 212 , 214 , the protective cover 246 also has two correspondingly positioned scenes 254 in its end faces.
  • The protective cover 246 is encompassed by two disc-like, spaced-apart and parallel-oriented legs 256 of a pivot part attachment 258 , on which a pivot part, for. B. a support handle or a seat, is mountable (not shown). Two knobs 260 are arranged on the inner surfaces of the legs 256 , which engage through the link openings 254 of the protective cover 246 into the links 252 of the bearing blocks 212 , 214 . The knobs 260 and the scenes 252 limit the folding movement of the swivel part to a predetermined angular range, in this case 90 °, so that the swivel part can pivot, for example, from a horizontal position to a vertical position and vice versa.
  • Furthermore, the legs 256 each three holes 262, as the pivot member insert that 258 by means of, for example, through the holes 262 and the openings 250 of the cover 246 out and engaging in the threaded holes 243 of the bearing plates 240 screws (not shown) rotationally fixed to the bearing axis 216 connects. In addition, the leg 256 facing the second bearing block 214 has a fourth bore 264 , the purpose of which is explained below. To cover the bores 262 , 264 , circular recesses are provided on the outer surfaces of the legs 256 , into which correspondingly designed protective disks 266 can be inserted.
  • As can be seen in FIG. 9, the pivot part extension 258 consists of two extension halves 268 , which are connected to one another, for example, by means of a screw connection 270 , after the legs 256 each come into contact with the protective cover 246 and the knobs 260 engage with the links 252 , 254 were brought. FIG. 10 shows the pivot part attachment 258 with attachment halves 268 screwed together.
  • Fig. 11 illustrates the second bearing block 214 in greater detail. In its bottom, to the base plate 210 to be fixed part of the bearing block 214 is rectangular and has to be screwed to the base plate 210 on its underside two threaded holes 272 on. The upper area of the bearing block 214 has a semicircularly curved outer surface. The bearing block 214 is stronger than the bearing block 212 and has a circular recess defining the receiving space 218 for the spring housing 220 . The bearing opening 242 is arranged in the center of the recess 218 . The recess 238 for the latching body 236 and the latching spring 234 borders on the recess 218 for the spring housing 220 . The region of the recess 238 in which the latching body 236 is arranged merges into the recess 218 , while the region of the recess 238 in which the latching spring 234 is provided passes through a tongue 274 against which the latching spring 234 can rest. is separated from the recess 218 .
  • The spring housing 220 shown in FIG. 12 is inserted into the recess 218 . The spring housing 220 is hollow-cylindrical, the end face pointing in the direction of the second bearing block 214 being closed by the base disk 230 , in the center of which a bushing 278 for the bearing axis 216 is provided. The spring housing 220 has a double-walled jacket wall, the outer circumferential surface of the outer ring wall 280 being designed as helical teeth 232 . The inner ring wall 282 is spaced from the outer ring wall 280 . The slot 229 is provided in it for fixing the second spring end 228 of the spiral spring 222 . In the base disk 276 , eight holes 284 are also spaced apart and evenly spaced on a circle concentric with the passage 278 , the purpose of which is explained below.
  • FIG. 13 shows the bearing block 214 with the spring housing 220 inserted and the detent spring 234 and detent body 236 installed. The bearing axis 216 and the slot 226 provided in it for fixing the first spring end 224 of the spiral spring 222 are also indicated. The latching body 236 engages in the helical toothing 232 in such a way that the spring housing 220 can only be rotated about the bearing axis 216 with respect to the bearing block 214 in one direction and by overcoming a force by slipping through the helical toothing 232 .
  • In Fig. 14, the coil spring 222 inserted into the spring housing 220 is additionally shown. The first spring end 224 engages in the slot 226 of the bearing axis 216 provided for this purpose, while the second spring end 228 engages with the slot 230 of the inner ring wall 282 of the spring housing 220 . Since the spring housing 220 is locked with respect to the bearing block 214 by the helical toothing 232 , the detent spring 234 and the detent body 236 , the spiral spring 222 is connected between the bearing axis 216 and the bearing block 214 in terms of force. In the event of a rotational movement of the bearing axis 216 caused by a pivoting movement of the pivoting part, the spiral spring 222 is consequently tensioned or relaxed depending on the direction of rotation. In this way, it can act as a drop brake when the swivel part swings down and support the swivel-up movement of the swivel part.
  • The restoring force of the spiral spring 222 can be adjusted by rotating the spring housing 220 with respect to the bearing block 214 , ie the latching body 236 . The spiral spring 222 is inserted into the spring housing 220 in such a way that a rotation of the spring housing 220 in the slipping direction of the latching device leads to an increase in the restoring force of the spiral spring 222 , while a rotation in the blocking direction results in a reduction in the restoring force. The pivoting part is used to rotate the spring housing 220 , ie to adjust the restoring force of the spring, which offers the advantage that only small forces have to be applied due to the lever formed by the pivoting part, for example to increase the restoring force of the spring.
  • For this purpose, the swiveling part each of the fourth holes 264, 244 of the side facing the second bearing support 214 leg 256 are brought the pivot member insert 258 and mounted in the second bearing support 214 bearing plate 240 with one of the bores 284 in the base disk 276 of the spring housing 220 in cover by pivoting , A rod-like tool inserted through all three bores causes the pivoting movement of the pivoting part to be carried out as a rotation of the spring housing 220 . Using the pivoting part as a lever, the resistance exerted by the detent spring 234 on the helical toothing 232 can be easily overcome and the spring housing 220 rotated in the direction of slipping, whereby the restoring force of the spiral spring 222 can be increased.
  • If, on the other hand, the restoring force of the spring is to be reduced, the latching body 236 must be moved out of the effective range of the helical toothing 232 to unlock the latching device. This can be done, for example, by means of a screw-like tool, which is brought into engagement with a corresponding threaded bore provided in the latching body 236 and is then moved outward. So that the relaxation of the spiral spring 222 takes place in a controlled manner after unlocking the latching device, the spring housing 220 can be rotated in the locking direction with the aid of the pivoting part until the desired restoring force of the spring 222 is set.
  • When the adjustment process is complete, the latching body 236 is optionally brought back into engagement with the helical toothing 232 and the tool is pulled out of the bores 284 , 244 , 264 in the base plate 276 , bearing plate 240 and leg 256 again. The pivoting part is thus decoupled from the spring housing with respect to a rotational movement and the spiral spring 222 is again effectively connected between the pivoting part and the bearing block 214 .
  • In Fig. 15, a third variant of the hinge assembly according to the invention. In this embodiment too, a base plate 310 is provided for fastening the joint arrangement to, for example, a wall.

In each bearing block 312, 314 a circular opening 318 is provided in each of three, over the inner circumference of the bearing blocks 312, 314 equally distributed, extending in the axial direction of the projections 320 of the bearing blocks 312 have 314th
  • The opening 318 of the first bearing block 312 serves to receive a first bearing ring 322 , on the outer circumference of which three recesses 324 extending in the axial direction are arranged in an evenly distributed manner, in order to cooperate with the projections 320 of the first bearing block 312 and the first bearing ring 322 to rotate to prevent the bearing axis 316 relative to the first bracket 312 .
  • The end face of the first bearing ring 322 pointing away from the bearing blocks 312 , 314 is covered by a plate 326 on which the bearing axis 316 is integrally formed. Two functional openings 328 , each with a circular extension, are provided in the plate 326 , as have already been explained in connection with FIG. 5. To protect the plate 326 and to improve the visual impression of the joint arrangement according to the invention, a disk-shaped cover 330 can be placed on the plate 326 from the outside, on which two plate bolts 332 are provided, which cooperate with the functional openings 328 (see explanation of FIGS. 5 and Fig. 6).
  • The bearing axis 316 is surrounded by a substantially cylindrical connecting part 334 , which has a first section 336 facing the first bearing block 312 and a second section 338 facing the second bearing block 314 . The first section 336 is surrounded in the area between the bearing blocks 312 , 314 by a spiral spring 340 (shown schematically here as a volume) and has a slot 342 for fixing a first, inner spring end (not shown). The second section 338 of the connecting part 334 has a larger diameter than the first section 336 . Four projections 344 , which extend in the axial direction, are arranged uniformly distributed over the circumference of the second section 338 .
  • Via its second section 338 , the connecting part 334 is mounted in a hollow-cylindrical adjusting part 346 , the projections 344 of the connecting part 334 engaging in complementary recesses 347 (cf. FIG. 16) of the adjusting part 346 and a rotation of the connecting part 334 with respect to the adjusting part Prevent 346 around the bearing axis 316 .
  • The actuating part 346 is in turn mounted in a second bearing ring 348 , which in turn is held in the opening 318 of the second bearing block 314 and has recesses 350 on its outer peripheral surface, into which the projections 320 of the second bearing block 314 engage in order to rotate the second bearing ring 348 with respect to the second bearing block 314 to prevent the bearing axis 316 .
  • On the inner circumferential surface of the second bearing ring 348 , 18 depressions 352 are provided, which are open to the end face of the second bearing ring 348 facing away from the bearing blocks 312 , 314 and extend in the axial direction over a little more than half the width of the second bearing ring 348 . More or fewer than 18 depressions 352 can also be provided in the second bearing ring 348 , possibly even arranged in an irregular manner over the inner circumferential surface. The angular distance between two adjacent depressions 352 determines the fineness with which the restoring force of the spring can be adjusted.
  • The number and arrangement of the recesses 352 of the second bearing ring 348 are arranged on the outer circumferential surface of the adjusting part 346 18 projections 354 , which, starting from the end face away from the bearing blocks 312 , 314 of the adjusting part 346 in the axial direction over approximately half the width of the Extend actuator 346 . If the projections 354 engage in the depressions 352 , the adjusting part 346 is prevented from rotating relative to the second bearing ring 348 about the bearing axis 316 .
  • The end face of the actuating part 346 which points away from the bearing blocks 312 , 314 is closed by a base 356 in which, in addition to a central bore 358 for receiving the bearing axis 316, two functional openings 328 , as already described above, are provided. As has also already been explained above, the actuating part 346 can also be covered together with the second bearing ring 348 by a disk-shaped cover 330 on which plate bolts 332 are arranged in order to engage in the functional openings 328 of the actuating part 346 .
  • In order to prevent unintentional loosening of the control part 346 from the second bearing ring 348 , a locking ring 360 is provided which can be plugged onto an end of the bearing axis 316 protruding through the bore 358 of the control part 346 .
  • To set the restoring force of the spring 340 , the cover 330 must first be removed from the actuating part 346 . After the securing ring 360 has been removed from the bearing axis 316 , the tool 88 shown in FIG. 6 can be connected to the actuating part 346 in such a way that the bolts 96 engage in the functional openings 328 and the plates 98 engage behind the bottom 356 of the actuating part 346 ,
  • By an axial movement of the tool 88 in the direction pointing away from the second bearing block 314 , the adjusting part 346 can be pulled out of the second bearing ring 348 to such an extent that the projections 354 of the adjusting part 346 disengage from the recesses 352 of the second bearing ring 348 and the adjusting part 346 is rotatable about the bearing axis 316 with respect to the second bearing ring 348 .
  • Together with the adjusting part 346 , the connecting part 334 is rotated with the aid of the tool 88 , as a result of which a relative movement of the first spring end fixed on the connecting part 334 with respect to a second spring end fixed on a pivoting part 362 and thus tensioning or relaxation of the spring 340 is achieved.
  • If the desired restoring force of the spring 340 is set, the adjusting part 346 is pushed back into the second bearing ring 348 with the aid of the tool 88 , the projections 354 engaging again in the recesses 352 , so that the adjusting part 346 is further rotated relative to the second bearing ring 348 is excluded. After the tool 88 has been removed, the securing ring 360 is finally placed again on the bearing axis 316 and the cover 330 on the actuating part 346 .
  • The pivot part 362 has a rod-shaped cantilever section 364 and a hollow-cylindrical joint section 366 which is rotatably mounted about the bearing axis 316 between the bearing blocks 312 , 314 on the bearing rings 322 , 348 by means of a bearing sleeve 368 adapted to the inner diameter of the joint section 366 .

At its end pointing away from the base plate 310 , the grip element 390 is provided with a rounded, in particular spherical, end section 392 , which is intended to prevent injuries when using the swivel part 362 . Furthermore, the grip element 390 is mounted so as to be displaceable in the direction perpendicular to the bearing axis 316 with respect to the extension section 364 , so that the length of the swivel part 362 can be adjusted, for example to improve the manageability or the lifting effect of the swivel part 362 .
  • FIGS. 21 and 22 show a support arm which is similar to the support arm shown in Fig. 20. Corresponding parts are therefore provided with the same reference symbols.
  • The support folding handle shown in FIGS. 21 and 22 has a base part 310 , which can be mounted on a wall, for example, on which two bearing blocks 312 , 314 are provided. The bearing blocks 312 , 314 are part of a joint arrangement 400 , by means of which a pivot part 362 essentially made of aluminum is articulatedly connected to the base part 310 . In particular, the swivel part 362 can be swiveled between a vertical and a horizontal position. The hinge assembly 400 is of the type described above in connection with FIGS. 15 to 20. It has a spiral spring 340 ( FIG. 23) connected between the base part 310 and the pivot part 362 and acting as a fall brake, against the restoring force of which the pivot part 362 can be moved into its horizontal position. The restoring force of spring 340 is adjustable.
  • As can be seen in FIG. 23, the pivoting part 362 has a joint section 366 surrounding the spring 340 and a cantilever section 364 . When viewed in cross section, the boom section 364 has a U-shaped basic shape which is formed by a base 402 on an upper side of the boom section 364 and two adjoining legs 404 which point downward in the drawing. The boom section 364 is consequently open on its underside.
  • The open underside of the boom section 364 can be covered by a cap 406 . With the help of five screws 408 , the cap 406 can be fixed to the boom section 364 . For this purpose, five correspondingly positioned and downward-pointing pins 410 are provided in the boom section 364 , each of which has at its free end a threaded hole 412 designed as a blind hole for receiving the screws 408 used to fix the cap 406 . With the help of webs 411 , the pins 410 are supported on the legs 404 .
  • Two bores 414 are also provided in the base 410 of the boom section 364 , the purpose of which is explained below. The top of the base 402 of the boom section is convexly curved.
  • The pivoting part 362 also has a grip element 390 which can be fixed on the upper side of the boom section 394 . A core 416 of the grip element 390 is formed from aluminum. As can be seen from FIGS. 24 to 27, the grip element 390 has an oval basic shape when viewed in cross section. In this case, a concave indentation 418, which extends in the longitudinal direction of the handle element 390 , is provided on an underside of the handle element 390 for receiving the extension section 364 . The curvature of the concave indentation 418 is adapted to the convexly curved upper side of the boom section 364 .
  • As shown in FIG. 23, the grip element 390 is fastened to the boom section 364 by means of a screw connection. For this purpose, five threaded bores 420 designed as blind bores are provided in the grip element 390 and extend from the underside of the grip element 390 into the interior of the core 416 of the grip element 390 . The threaded bores 420 are arranged along the longitudinal central axis of the grip element 390 and have the same distances from one another. In the exemplary embodiment shown, the distances between two threaded bores 420 are each 50 mm, but they can also be larger or smaller.
  • The threaded bores 420 serve to receive two screws 422 , which are passed from below through the bores 414 in the base 402 of the boom section 364 . So that the screws 422 can accordingly engage two threaded holes 420 of the grip element 390 , the distance between the holes 414 in the extension section 364 must be adapted to the distance between the threaded holes 420 in the grip element 390 , i.e. it must be an integral multiple of the distance between the threaded holes are 420 . In the exemplary embodiment shown, the distance between the bores 414 is just twice the distance between the threaded bores 420 , that is to say 100 mm.
  • By loosening the screw connection formed by the screws 422 and the threaded bores 420 , the grip element 390 can be lifted off the extension section 364 and displaced relative thereto. When the grip member shifted 390 relative to the boom section 394 in the longitudinal direction by a length corresponding to the distance between the threaded holes 420, then the guided through the bores 414 in the boom portion 364 screws 422 can again be engaged, and the handle member 390 with two threaded holes 420 fix to boom section 364 . In this way, the position of the grip element 390 relative to the extension section 364 can be adjusted by predetermined lengths, which are determined by the distance between the threaded holes 420 . In the exemplary embodiment shown, the length of the swivel part 362 can thus be varied in steps by 50 mm in each case.
  • Since five threaded bores 420 are provided in the grip element 390 and two bores 414 in the extension section 364 in the exemplary embodiment shown, the length of the pivoting part 362 can be varied between three different settings, as shown in FIG. 29. In the shortest setting, the screws 422 engage in the first and third threaded bore 420 seen from the right in the drawing ( FIG. 29 (a)), in the middle setting in the second and fourth threaded bore 420 ( FIG. 29 (b)) and in the longest setting in the third and fifth threaded holes 420 ( Fig. 29 (c)).
  • Since the distance between the threaded bores 420 in the exemplary embodiment shown is in each case 50 mm, there is a length difference of 150 mm between the shortest and the longest setting of the swivel part 362 . By adding additional threaded bores 420 , the range of the length adjustability of the swivel part 362 can be increased. A reduction in the distance between the threaded bores 420 with a corresponding adjustment of the distance between the bores 414 also enables a finer gradation in the length adjustability of the swivel part 362 according to the invention.
  • As shown in FIGS. 23 to 27, the core 416 of the grip element 390 is provided with a sheathing 424 for reasons of an improved grip and an improved visual impression, which is preferably formed from a plastic and in particular from polyurethane (PUR). The color and surface structure of the casing 424 can vary depending on the area of use of the swivel part 362 .
  • The sheathing 424 almost completely surrounds the core 416 of the grip element 390 . A recess in the casing 424 is provided only in the area of the threaded holes 420 on the underside of the grip element 390 in order to enable the screws 422 to engage the threaded holes 420 for fastening the grip element 390 to the extension section 364 .
  • As shown in FIG. 28, in the unscrewed state of the grip element 390 , the casing 424 protrudes beyond the surface 426 with which the surface 428 of the grip element core 416 borders on the surface 430 of the indentation 418 . In the exemplary embodiment shown, the overhang of the casing 424 is approximately 0.3 mm, but it can also be larger or smaller.
  • If the grip element 390 is fixed on the boom section 364 , the overhanging part of the casing 424 first lies against the boom section 394 . If the handle element 390 is screwed further to the extension section 364 , the extension section 364 is moved further into the indentation 418 , at most to such an extent that the upper side of the extension section 364 abuts the surface 430 of the indentation 418 . The protruding part of the casing 424 is pressed together. In this way it is ensured that the edge of the casing 424 which delimits the cutout also always lies tightly against the cantilever section 364 and seals any gap which may exist between the grip element core 416 and the cantilever section 364 .
  • As can be seen in FIGS. 21 to 27 and 29, the grip element 390 has a rounded, in particular spherical, end section 392 at its end facing away from the joint arrangement 400 , which end section is intended to prevent injuries when using the swivel part 362 . In the region of the end section 392 , in particular on its front and top, the sheathing 424 has an increased thickness in order to further reduce the risk of injury.
