At least with the instep 12 spanning close to the ankle 10 tension band 9 may be connected to a Druckverteilglied 27th Dieses dient dazu, den beim Spannen auf den Rist 12 ausgeübten Spanndruck auf eine größere Fläche zu übertragen und so die Flächenbelastung zu verringern. This serves to transfer the during clamping on the instep 12 exerted clamping pressure over a larger area, thereby reducing the surface loading. Es besteht beispielsweise aus einer Druckverteilplatte, durch die das Spannband 9 hindurchgeschleift sein kann. It consists for example of a pressure distribution plate through which the tension band 9 may be looped.
  • In vorteilhafter Weise verläuft die Längsachse 26' des stabförmig ausgeführten Umlenkgliedes 26 der Kupplungsglieder 19 bzw. 20 senkrecht zur Richtung der im Spannband 9 auftretenden durch den Pfeil 23 angedeuteten Zugspannung. Advantageously, the longitudinal axis 26 'of the rod-shaped deflection member carried out 26 of the coupling members 19 and 20 extending perpendicular to the direction of the occurring in the tension band 9 as indicated by the arrow 23 tension.
  • Das stabförmige Umlenkglied 26 kann auch so angeordnet sein, daß die Senkrechte 26'' auf die Längsachse 26' in einem von einem rechten Winkel abweichenden Winkelbereich α, liegt, der durch die dargestellte Zugrichtung - Pfeil 23 - des Spannbandes 9 und der Richtung - Pfeil 28 - der im jeweiligen Spannbandabschnitt 14 bzw. 15 auftretenden Zugspannung eingeschlossen ist (Fig. 2). The rod-shaped deflecting member 26 may also be arranged so that the perpendicular, is 26 'α' to the longitudinal axis 26 'in an angle deviating from a right angle angle range by the illustrated pull direction - arrow 23 - of the tension band 9 and the direction - arrow 28 - the tensile stress occurring in the respective clamping band portions 14 and 15 is included (Fig. 2). Insbesondere kann das Umlenkglied 26 so angeordnet sein, daß die Senkrechte 26'' zur Längsachse 26' in oder annähernd in Richtung der Winkelhalbierenden des Winkels α der durch die Pfeile 23 und 28 angedeuteten Zugrichtungen verläuft. In particular, the deflection member 26 may be arranged so that the perpendicular 26 '' extends the longitudinal axis 26 'in or approximately in the direction of the bisector of the angle α the direction indicated by the arrows 23 and 28 pulling directions.
  • Das Spannband 9 und die Spannbandabschnitte 14, 15 bestehen bevorzugt aus einem Gewebeband, dessen Verhältnis Dicke zu Breite etwa 1:5 bis 1:50, insbesondere etwa 1:15 bis 1:30, beträgt. The clamping band 9 and the strap portions 14, 15 are preferably made from a woven tape whose ratio of thickness to width of about 1: 5 to 1:50, especially about 1:15 to 1:30, is.
  • Der Zentraldrehverschluß 3 kann mit einer Schnellentrasteinrichtung versehen sein, wobei die Schnellentrastung durch Zug oder Druck möglich ist. The central rotary closure 3 may be provided with a Schnellentrasteinrichtung, wherein the Schnellentrastung by train or printing is possible.
