Abstract

The invention relates to a telescopic tube containing several tubular components which can be inserted into each other. The invention enables a desired storage length or usage length of the inventive telescopic tube to be adjusted in a very simple manner by providing a base tube (6) in addition to components (8 and 9) of the telescopic tube. The corresponding tubular component (8) of the telescopic tube can be inserted into the base tube and a locking device ( 20,21 ) holds the telescopic tube in an extended position in relation to the base tube (6). Said locking device can be released in order to enable the telescopic tube to be inserted into the base tube (6).

Description

  • The invention relates to a telescopic tube with pipe parts.
  • Such a telescopic tube is through the DE-C-42 00 526 known. In addition, also describes the DE 67 52 338 U a telescopic tube with pipe parts. Such telescopic tubes usually consist of two telescoping tube parts, wherein the two tube parts are held by a latching mechanism in the respectively set position. When using such a telescopic tube as Staubsaugersaugrohr can be adjusted by appropriate telescoping of the two tube parts a desired, favorable for the implementation of vacuum working length of the telescopic tube. In the subsequent to the implementation of vacuuming Verräumen the vacuum cleaner and serving as a suction tube telescope tube, the set length of use of the telescopic tube may be disturbing because of the often existing narrow dimensional ratios of a storage space for the vacuum cleaner. Although it would be possible to telescope the tube parts of the telescopic tube to a shortest length and thus facilitate the placement in a storage room, but then would have to be readjusted at a re-use of the vacuum cleaner and the telescopic tube whose length of use.
  • The invention has for its object to improve a telescopic tube of the type described above.
  • The solution of the problem is achieved according to the invention by a telescopic tube according to claim 1 gekennnzeichnet characterized in that in addition to the tube parts of the telescopic tube a base tube part is provided, in which the telescopic tube with its corresponding tube part can be inserted, wherein the telescopic tube in the opposite the base tube part Position holding locking device is provided which is releasable for insertion of the telescopic tube in the base tube part.
  • The tube parts of the telescopic tube can remain in such a configuration of the telescopic tube in the respective suitable position to each other. The insertion of the corresponding tube part of the telescopic tube in the base tube part and pulling out the same from the base tube part takes place in each case between two fixed predetermined end positions. Thus, the Verräumstellung of the telescopic tube can be achieved by merely inserting the telescopic tube into the base tube part to the corresponding end position and the position of use by pulling the telescopic tube into the other end position by the user of the telescopic tube.
  • In a telescopic tube, which serves as a suction pipe for a vacuum cleaner and can be attached to the vacuum cleaner housing when clearing the vacuum cleaner, the locking device when attaching the telescopic tube to the vacuum cleaner housing advantageously be necessarily solved. Thus, the telescopic tube is pushed together in the usual for clearing the vacuum cleaner Ansteckvorgang of the telescopic tube to the vacuum cleaner housing by the Ansteckbewegung in its Verräumstellung.
  • A structurally simple embodiment of a positive unlocking results from the fact that the locking device has a locking element engaging in an outer groove provided on the corresponding tube part of the telescopic tube, which locking element is held in its locking position by an unlocking element, which unlocking element engages in the vacuum cleaner housing when it is inserted into the telescopic tube Unlocked position is movable.
  • Due to the fact that the blocking element is automatically moved out of its blocking position after release by the unlocking element, a special smoothness when telescoping of base tube part and telescopic tube part is achieved.
  • The fact that the suction tube can not be removed in its pushed together on Verräumlänge state of the vacuum cleaner housing is ensured by the fact that the unlocking is coupled to a blocking element which impinges when attaching the telescopic tube to the vacuum cleaner housing on a stop edge of the vacuum cleaner housing and thereby the blocking element in the further Plug-on movement is urged in a blocking position.
  • The blocking of the telescopic tube on the vacuum cleaner housing succeeds in a simple manner in that the blocking element is urged by a provided on the base tube part run-in slope radially outward into a groove-like depression of the vacuum cleaner housing.
  • The release of the suction pipe from the vacuum cleaner housing required release of the blockage is carried out in a simple manner by the fact that when pulling out of the telescopic tube from the base tube portion taking place locking the locking element in the outer groove unlocking the spring back into its locking position and the locking element coupled to the unlocking in his release position is moved. Thus, the blocking is inevitably solved when pulling out the telescopic tube from the base tube part. The user of the telescopic tube is therefore forced to remove the telescopic tube before removing it from the vacuum cleaner housing to its useful length. Only when this is done, the suction pipe can be removed from the vacuum cleaner housing.
  • Conveniently, the unlocking element and the blocking element are coupled together by means of a linkage. This ensures the mutual adjustment of these elements.
  • In order to prevent unwanted blocking of the telescopic tube on the vacuum cleaner housing, it is advantageous that the blocking element is held by a radially acting spring force in its release position.
  • Reference to an embodiment shown in the drawing, the invention will be explained in more detail below. It shows:
  • Fig. 1
    a vacuum cleaner with a suction pipe coupled to the housing,
    FIGS. 2 and 3
    different phases when connecting a telescopic tube to a vacuum cleaner housing and
    Fig. 4
    the Ansteckphase shown in Fig. 2 in an enlarged view.
  • 1 with the housing of a vacuum cleaner is called, which is erected to store the vacuum cleaner vertically and placed with its rear housing 2 on a base 3. At the freely accessible in this position bottom side 4 of the vacuum cleaner housing 1, a suspension opening 5 is provided, into which a base pipe part 6 can be suspended by means of a hook 7 attached to it. The base pipe part 6 forms together with two other pipe parts 8 and 9, a telescopic tube, which serves as a suction pipe for the vacuum cleaner. The two further tube parts 8 and 9 are telescopically telescopically in a known manner and can be locked together by means of a locking head 10 in the respective desired position. The lower tube part 8 of the telescopic tube is inserted into the base tube part 6 and can be moved in the same between an upper and lower end position. For clearing the vacuum cleaner, the lower tube part 8 is pushed into the base pipe part 6. To perform suction, the lower tube part 8 can be pulled out of the base tube part 6 again, so that the telescopic tube then again has its useful length.
  • At an axial distance from the hook 7, an annular collar 11 is provided on the base tube part 6. In the bottom side 4 of the vacuum cleaner housing 1 facing region on the annular collar 11 a radially outwardly facing bead-like projection 12 is formed, which has a run-on slope 14 at its in Aufsteckrichtung (arrow 13) of the suction tube end. On the outer circumference of the annular collar 11 is a blocking element 15, which by the annular collar 11 outside embracing spring arms 16 in its initial position, i. In this position, the blocking element 15 is outside a groove-like recess 17 of the vacuum cleaner housing 1, so that the base tube part 6 of the suction tube infected both in the direction indicated by the arrow 13 Ansteckrichtung to the vacuum cleaner housing 1 and in the Counter direction of the vacuum cleaner housing 1 can be deducted.
  • Via a linkage 18, the blocking element 15 is coupled to a cone-shaped unlocking element 19. The unlocking element 19 rests with its one side on one of the conical surface of the unlocking element 19 adapted inclined surface of a blocking element 20. The blocking element 20 engages in an outer groove 21 present on the lower tube part 8. By this engagement of the blocking element 20, the lower tube part 8 is axially fixed in the base tube part 6. On the opposite side of the one side of the unlocking element 19 is located on a further inclined surface 30 which is radially supported on a arranged on the outer circumference of the base tube member 6 bracket 22. By a coil spring 23, the unlocking element 19 is pressed in the axial direction against the inclined surface of the locking element 20 and the further inclined surface 30.
  • The blocking element 20 is held by a spring-shaped support arm 24 of a holding element 25 arranged on the outer circumference of the base tube part 6, which also carries the further oblique surface 30. The spring force of the support arm 24 is dimensioned so that it can move out of the outer groove 21 of the lower tube part 8 the release element 20 when released by the unlocking element 19.
  • The operation of the telescopic tube is described below starting from the position shown in FIGS. 2 and 4 of the tube parts starting-as already mentioned-the suction tube can be infected in this position of its individual tube parts either to the vacuum cleaner housing 1 or removed from this. It is first explained the Ansteckvorgang. According to the suction performed before attaching the suction pipe to the vacuum cleaner housing 1, the lower tube part 8 is pulled out to set the desired working length of the suction pipe until the locking element 20 engages in the outer groove 21 from the base pipe part 6. For attaching the suction pipe to the vacuum cleaner housing 1, the hook 7 is first inserted into the suspension opening 5. At the same time a provided in the region of the annular collar 11 securing hook 26 is inserted into a formed on the bottom side 4 of the vacuum cleaner housing 1 slot 27. By this hooking of the suction pipe at two axially spaced locations of the bottom side 4 of the vacuum cleaner housing 1, a tilting of the suction pipe from the bottom side 4 is prevented.
  • After a certain distance of the Ansteckweges the suction tube, the blocking element 15 meets a groove-like depression 17 limiting stop edge 28. Thus, the blocking element 15 is held and can no longer make the further Ansteckbewegung the suction tube with. As a result of the further Ansteckbewegung the suction tube, the run-on slope 14 of the bead-like projection 12 slides along a slope 29 of the blocking element 15, whereby the blocking element 15 is pressed radially outward into the groove-like recess 17, see Fig. 3rd
  • Together with the blocking element 15, the unlocking element 19 is held on the linkage 18 and no longer takes part in the further Ansteckbewegung the suction tube. The coupled via the support member 25 to the base pipe member 6 locking element 20 and also connected to the support member 25 further inclined surface 30, however, are further moved together with the base pipe part 6 in the further Ansteckbewegung the suction tube. As a result, the blocking element 20 slides on one Conical surface of the unlocking element 19 along and is thus released for its radial unlocking movement. By the spring force of the support arm 24, the blocking element 20 is moved radially outward and emerges from the outer groove 21 of the lower tube part 8. The lower tube part 8 can now be pushed into the base tube part 6 until it impinges with its end edge 31 on a ring edge 32 formed on the inner circumference of the base tube part 6. Thus, the Ansteckvorgang of the suction pipe is closed to the vacuum cleaner housing 1 and the suction tube is shortened to its Verräumlänge.
  • To carry out a new suction, the suction pipe must be removed again from the vacuum cleaner housing 1. The suction tube is initially blocked by the engaging in the groove-like recess 17 blocking element 15 against axial movement. When pulling on the suction tube, only the lower tube part 8 in the base tube part 6 is initially pulled upwards. As soon as the lower tube part 8 is pulled upwards out of the base tube part 6 so that the outer groove 21 coincides with the blocking element 20, the blocking element 20 is forced into the outer groove 21 by the pressing force exerted on the unlocking element 19 by the helical spring 23. Thus, the lower tube part 8 is locked again with the base tube part 6 in the axial direction.
  • By taking place radially inward into the outer groove 21 Dodge the locking element 20, the unlocking element 19 is released for a short axial movement. This axial movement is transmitted via the linkage 18 to the blocking element 15, which thereby jumps over the starting slope 14 again jump from the bead-like jump 12 and emerges from the groove-like recess 17. Due to the spring action of the spring arms 16, the blocking element 15 is pulled radially inward and then held in this position. Now, the hook 7 and the safety hook 26 can be pulled out of the corresponding receptacles and the suction pipe thus be removed from the vacuum cleaner housing 1.
  • Due to the removal of the suction tube from the vacuum cleaner housing 1 inevitably taking place the lower tube part 8 from the base tube part 6 is always again the previously set by adjusting the two pipe parts 8 and 9 use length of the suction tube ensured. It is thus not necessary to re-adjust this length. As the above explanations show, takes place Both the setting of a certain Verräumlänge and the useful length of the suction pipe each automatically when plugging the suction pipe to the vacuum cleaner housing 1 and when removing the same from the vacuum cleaner housing. 1
