Abstract

The comb has a detachable comb body passed through a locking element, where the locking element is fixed on a trimmer and located on a curvature arch-shaped part. A vaulted component is fixed at a side of the curvature arch-shaped part. A bending part of an arch rod is fixed with an unlocked memory block.

Description

    Object of the invention
  • The present invention relates to a removable comb for attachment to a hair trimmer or beard and, more particularly, a comb having improved fastening means to facilitate the comb exchange operation on the mower.
  • State of the art
  • The mower comb, also called a cutting guide, is used to adjust the cutting height of the hair or hair of a beard. There are integral cutting guides of the mower whose position is adjustable via a control member that can be motorized. Furthermore, there are removable combs of different sizes to be fixed on the head of the mower by the user to adjust the cutting height.
  • In the latter case, many locking systems of the comb to the mower are known. The comb can be attached either inside or outside the mower head. Exterior fastening systems are disclosed, inter alia, in patent applications CA 2,254,672 A1 and US 2008/0184565 A1 as well as in the patent US 4,614,036 .
  • The requests CA 2,254,672 A1 and US 2008/0184565 A1 present a comb that includes a end a flexible tongue for attachment to the blade of the mower.
  • In the patent US 4,614,036 , the attachment of the comb on the mower is provided by means of a flexible tongue disposed at the base of the comb and comprising a hook which can be engaged in one of the grooves on the housing of the mower.
  • The locking systems of the state of the art require direct manipulation of the tongue to allow the unlocking of the comb / mower assembly. However, it is not always easy to manipulate the lock either because it is not easy to access, or because it requires some effort to get to unlock the system with the result that the user can be caused to break a fingernail.
  • Goals of the invention
  • The present invention aims to provide a comb provided with fixing means not having the disadvantages of the prior art.
  • It thus aims to achieve a comb provided with easily accessible fixing means, not requiring direct manipulation of the lock and requiring only a small effort on the part of the user.
  • Main characteristic elements of the invention
  • The present invention relates to a removable comb for attachment to a mower by means of a latch, said latch being positioned on an arc whose curvature increases when the sides of the bow are the curvature of the arc causing the unlocking of the comb.
  • According to particular embodiments of the invention, the comb comprises at least one or an appropriate combination of the following characteristics:
    • the lock is positioned in the middle of the arc;
    • the latch has an outgrowth cooperating with a complementary part on the mower;
    • said complementary part is a fixed blade of the mower or an adapter to be fixed on the mower;
    • the comb is monobloc;
    • it has teeth with a fixed height of between 3 and 25 mm;
    • the arc is configured so that its arrow increases by a distance of 0.2 to 10 mm, preferably from 0.5 to 3 mm.
  • The present invention also relates to a mower comprising a comb as described above.
  • Brief description of the figures
  • The figure 1 represents three-dimensional views of combs according to the invention for three different cutting heights (3, 13 and 25 mm).
  • The figure 2 represents a three-dimensional view of the comb / mower assembly comprising the comb according to the invention.
  • The figure 3 represents three-dimensional views of the comb according to the invention intended to be fixed on a removable adapter.
  • The figure 4 represents three-dimensional views of the comb of the figure 3 and the mower with the aforementioned adapter.
  • The figure 5 represents with the help of arrows the areas of the comb stressed and deformed during the unlocking of the comb.
  • The figure 6 is a sectional view of the attachment of the comb according to the invention on the head of the blade of the mower (without adapter).
  • The figure 7 represents sectional views of how the comb according to the invention is attached to the mower (without adapter).
  • The Figures 8, 9 and 10 respectively represent a three-dimensional view of the successive actions to be performed by the user to detach the comb from the mower. For example, the actions are illustrated for the comb according to the invention being fixed on the fixed blade of the mower (without adapter). The arrows indicate the sides of the arc on which one presses to increase the curvature of the latter allowing the unlocking of the comb.

Detailed description of the invention
  • The present invention relates to a removable comb for mowers and, more particularly, to the fixing means of said comb to the mower. The lawnmower may be a beard trimmer, hair trimmer or for animal use.
  • The comb 1 according to the invention is represented in figures 1 and 3 for different cutting heights. It is provided on its face intended to be brought into contact with the skin of teeth 2. On the opposite side, it comprises a flexible curved portion 3 in the form of an arc which is preferably made of a plastic material of a single holding with the whole comb (monobloc structure).
  • The arc 3 comprises two lateral bearing surfaces 4 intended to be gripped by the user during the unlocking of the comb / mower assembly. The lateral bearing surfaces can indifferently be part of the continuity of the arc as well as the figure 3 or forming distinct surfaces of the arc with, for example, a relief or grooves such that at the figure 1 .
  • The bow 3 comprises a lock 5 ensuring the attachment of the comb 1 on the mower 6 (see Fig. 4 and 7 ). More specifically, the lock ensures the attachment of the comb on the fixed blade 9 of the mower as shown in FIG. figure 7 or on an adapter 12 which can be removably mounted on the mower as shown in FIGS. figures 3 and 4 .
  • The latch 5 is disposed in the middle of the arc 3 and has a protrusion 8 cooperating with the fixed blade 9 or with the adapter 12. The protrusion 8 may be disposed at the top of a tongue 7 rising from the arc 3 in a direction substantially perpendicular to the plane formed by the lateral bearing surfaces 4 and the arc 3 (see FIG. Fig. 1 and 7 ). This protrusion 8 comes to grip the fixed blade 9 of the comb when locking the comb on the mower. The protrusion 8 can also be disposed on the arc 3 and come to be housed, during locking, in an opening 11 formed in the adapter 12 (see FIG. Fig. 3 ).
  • At least one of the teeth 2 of the combs has a hooking flange 10 positioned inside the tooth. As illustrated in figures 4 and 6 , the hooking flanges 10 are configured to fix the head of the fixed blade of the mower. The attachment flanges 10 may also allow attachment to the adapter 12 itself provided with attachment means 10 (see FIG. fig.3 ).
  • In use, during the unlocking of the comb / mower assembly, the user pinches the lateral bearing surfaces 4 of the comb as shown in FIGS. figures 5 and 10 As a result, the deflection of the arc 3 increases significantly by a distance of the order of 0.2 to 10 mm, preferably 0.5 to 3 mm. Thus, during the unlocking operation illustrated in FIGS. Figures 8-10 , the lock 5 disengages from the fixed blade 9 or the adapter if the mower is provided with an adapter. The user then only has to remove the comb from the head of the blade.
  • Advantages of the comb according to the invention
  • The comb can be made at low cost thanks to its monobloc structure.
  • The comb can be easily disengaged from the mower by the user. Thus, the unlocking is effected indirectly via the lateral bearing surfaces and therefore requires no manipulation of the lock as such.
