  • From Advantage may be, if the fastener of a hard plastic or metal, because in this way the security of the attachment the coupling device, for. B. on a component of a vehicle, further increased can be.
  • It may also prove advantageous if the fastening element is formed substantially plate-shaped, as this further attaching to a component of a motor vehicle can be relieved.
  • Cheap can it should be if at least two sides of the fastener longer than the corresponding sides of the receiving part, since thus the Attaching the coupling device to a component of the motor vehicle can be further facilitated.
  • moreover It may prove advantageous if the fastener, at least in sections, dovetail-shaped. To this Way, the attachment to a component of the vehicle can still be further facilitated.
  • Also It may prove advantageous if the fastener has at least one recess for receiving a screw, with which it is attached to a component of the motor vehicle can. As a result, the attachment can be further simplified.
  • Farther is a kit with a coupling device according to the invention and claimed with a male part.
  • One such kit allows a better vibration damping and a better acoustic separation. In addition, with such a Kit safety of attachment to a component of a motor vehicle still increased become.
  • In addition, can it prove to be advantageous if the receiving device and the male part are at least partially spherical. On This way, the connection between the male part and the receiving part be further improved and facilitated.
  • alternative can the receiving device and the plug-in part at least in sections dovetailed be educated. This is also an improvement the strength of the connection between the receiving device and the Plug-in part, as well as facilitating the connection possible.
