Description

Pousse de sécurité pour enfant en bas age devant être couché sur un siège de vehicule automobile. Safety push for young children to be lying on a motor vehicle seat.
La presente invention concerne une housse de sécurité pour enfant en bas age devant être couche sur un siège de vehicule automobile en travers du sens de deplacement.  The present invention relates to a safety cover for young children to be laid on a motor vehicle seat across the direction of movement.
Les housses de sécurité connues sont destinees à être utilisées solidairement avec une coque posee sur le siège dans le sens de déplacement, laquelle est fixee par des sangles ou la ceinture de sécurité au vehicule automobile. The known safety covers are intended to be used integrally with a shell placed on the seat in the direction of movement, which is fixed by straps or the seat belt to the motor vehicle.
Un premier inconvenient réside dans la nécessité de disposer d'une coque dont l'utilisation ne se revèle utile, confortable et vraiment protectrice dans un véhicule automobile que pour certains agies et certains types de voyages. Par conséquent, dans tous les autres cas, la coque ne s'impose pas et il en resulte un gain de place dans le vehicule, ainsi que de poids pour le port à bout de bras ; il en resulte également une économie en attendant le moment où l'acquisition de la coque s'imposera. A first drawback lies in the need to have a shell, the use of which proves to be useful, comfortable and truly protective in a motor vehicle only for certain types and certain types of travel. Consequently, in all other cases, the hull is not necessary and this results in a gain in space in the vehicle, as well as in weight for carrying at arm's length; it also results in an economy while waiting for the moment when the acquisition of the hull is necessary.
Mais, sans la coque, la sécurité ne se trouve pas assuree, de sorte que, le plus souvent, un passager doit s'asseoir à l'arriere du véhicule et prendre l'enfant dans ses bras. Parfois, l'enfant est installé dans un sac de couchage, niais ce sac est libre et ne facilite même pas l'intervention du passager pour assurer la sécurité.  However, without the hull, security is not guaranteed, so that, most often, a passenger must sit in the rear of the vehicle and take the child in his arms. Sometimes, the child is installed in a sleeping bag, but this bag is free and does not even facilitate the intervention of the passenger to ensure safety.
La presente invention a pour but de remedier à ces inconvénients en assurant la sécurité par la housse elle-même, indépendamment de la coque dont l'usage se trouve par conséquent limité aux fonctions essentielles pour lesquelles elle a eté conçue, mise au point et exploitée. The object of the present invention is to remedy these drawbacks by ensuring safety by the cover itself, independently of the shell, the use of which is therefore limited to the essential functions for which it was designed, developed and operated. .
Dans ce but et conformement à l'invention, deux sangles d'ancrage munies de ferrures de fixation sur le véhicule sont attachées de façon flottante sur ladite housse, l'une au niveau des emmanchures et l'autre à une distance du fond correspondant sensiblement à l'emplacement moyen du haut des jambes de l'enfant couche dans ladite housse. For this purpose and in accordance with the invention, two anchor straps provided with fastening fittings on the vehicle are floatingly attached to said cover, one at the armholes and the other at a distance from the corresponding bottom substantially at the middle location of the upper legs of the child lying in said cover.
Dès lors, si un choc se produit, la housse chargee est retenue par les sangles d'ancrage et la situation des points d'attache de celles-ci sur ladite housse est telle que l'enfant qui y est logé ne peut pas basculer, se tasser au fond ou être éjecté par l'encolure.  Consequently, if a shock occurs, the loaded cover is retained by the anchor straps and the situation of the attachment points of these on said cover is such that the child who is housed there cannot tilt, pack at the bottom or be ejected from the neck.
Suivant une forme de realisation particulibrement avantageuse, les sangles sont fixées, de façon reglable, sur des passants mobiles le long de bandes transversales de pontage libre qui ne sont fixees qu'à leurs extrémités près des bords du dos de cette housse ; plus concrètement, selon un mode d'execution preferentiel, le dos de la housse est renforce par des bandes cousues suivant les côtés d'un rectangle, les bandes longitudinales étant disposees à proximité des bords et les bandes transversales etant situées suivant les lignés d'attache des sangles pour etre recouvertes librement par les bandes de pontage dont les extremites sont cousues avec celles desdites bandes de renfort qui se superposent dans les angles. According to a particularly advantageous embodiment, the straps are fixed, in an adjustable manner, on movable loops along transverse bands of free bridging which are fixed only at their ends near the edges of the back of this cover; more concretely, according to a preferential embodiment, the back of the cover is reinforced by bands sewn along the sides of a rectangle, the longitudinal bands being arranged near the edges and the transverse bands being located along the lines of attaches straps to be freely covered by the bridging strips whose ends are sewn with those of said reinforcing strips which overlap in the corners.
Ainsi, lors du choc précité, les bandes de pontage, tirées par la charge de la housse agissant-sur leurs extrémités de fixation et retenues entre celles-ci par les sangles d'ancrage, se replient en V sur elles-mêmes, ce qui a pour effet de réduire la longueur de la zone périphérique de contact de la housse avec l'enfant et ainsi de resserrer cette housse sur cet enfant pour bien le maintenir ; plus le choc est violent, mieux l'enfant se trouve enserré et mieux la pression de retenue se trouve repartie. Thus, during the aforementioned impact, the bridging strips, pulled by the load of the cover acting on their fixing ends and retained between them by the anchor straps, fold back in V on themselves, which has the effect of reducing the length of the peripheral zone of contact of the cover with the child and thus of tightening this cover on this child to properly maintain it; the more violent the shock, the better the child is trapped and the better the restraint pressure is distributed.
Divers autres caracteristiques et avantages ressortent d'ailleurs de la description detaillee qui suit. Various other characteristics and advantages are moreover apparent from the detailed description which follows.
Une forme de réalisation de l'objet de l'invention est reprGsentee, à titre d'exemple non limitatif, sur le dessin annexe. An embodiment of the object of the invention is shown, by way of nonlimiting example, in the accompanying drawing.
Sur ce dessin
- la figure 1 est une vue en plan de la housse vide étalée à plat, son dos etant apparent
- la figure 2 est une vue analogue à la figure 1, un enfant en bas dge etant logé dans la housse dont le dessus est apparent
- la figure 3 est une coupe transversale prise suivant la ligne III-III de la figure 2, montrant l'emprise et la retenue de l'enfant lors d'un choc ;
- la figure 4 est une perspective partielle illustrant la housse dans la position de la figure 1 lorsque, propulsée vers l'avant au cours d'un choc, elle se trouve retenue par les sangles d'ancrage.
On this drawing
- Figure 1 is a plan view of the empty cover spread out flat, its back being apparent
- Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure 1, a child in low age being housed in the cover whose top is visible
- Figure 3 is a cross section taken along line III-III of Figure 2, showing the grip and restraint of the child during an impact;
- Figure 4 is a partial perspective illustrating the cover in the position of Figure 1 when, propelled forward during an impact, it is retained by the anchor straps.
Ainsi que cela ressort clairement du dessin, la housse 1 est un sac de couchage presentant un dos uni 2 et un dessus fendu 3 dont les bords jointifs sont susceptibles d'être réunis par une fermeture à glissière 4. A l'une de ses extrémités, ce sac est fermé pour constituer un fond 5, tandis qu'à son autre extrémité il est découpé pour former une encolure 6 et des emmanchures 7 à travers lesquelles le cou et les bras d'un.enfant en bas age 8 loge dans la housse doivent être passes. As is clear from the drawing, the cover 1 is a sleeping bag with a plain back 2 and a split top 3 whose contiguous edges are capable of being joined by a zipper 4. At one of its ends , this bag is closed to form a bottom 5, while at its other end it is cut to form a neckline 6 and armholes 7 through which the neck and arms of a toddler 8 are housed in the cover must be passed.
De preference, le dos 2 du sac est renforce par des bandes longitudinales 9, lO et des bandes transversales 11, 12 disposes suivant un rectangle. Les bandes transversales 11, 12 sont situées au niveau des emmanchures 7 et respectivement de l'emplacement moyen du haut des jambes de l'enfant couché dans la housse. Preferably, the back 2 of the bag is reinforced by longitudinal strips 9, 10 and transverse strips 11, 12 arranged in a rectangle. The transverse bands 11, 12 are located at the armholes 7 and respectively at the mean location of the top of the legs of the child lying in the cover.
Les bandes transversales de renfort 11, 12 sont recouvertes par des bandes de pontage 13, 14 qui ne sont fixees au sac que par leurs extrémités, lesquelles sont alors cousues dans les angles desdites bandes de renfort 9 à 12. Ainsi, les bandes de pontage 13, 14 peuvent s'acarter des bandes de renfort 11, 12 tout en retenant le sac par leurs extrémités précitées (figure 4). The transverse reinforcing bands 11, 12 are covered by bridging bands 13, 14 which are fixed to the bag only by their ends, which are then sewn into the corners of said reinforcing bands 9 to 12. Thus, the bridging bands 13, 14 can move away from the reinforcement strips 11, 12 while retaining the bag by their aforementioned ends (FIG. 4).
Des passants 15, 16 sont mobiles librement le long des bandes de pontage 13, 14 et sont fixes de façon réglable le long de sangles d'ancrage 17, 18 dont les ferrures terminales 19, 20 sont destinees à etre fixées au moyen de vis, sur les attaches du véhicule automobile prévues à cet effet. Passers-by 15, 16 are freely movable along the bridging strips 13, 14 and are fixed in an adjustable manner along anchoring straps 17, 18 whose end fittings 19, 20 are intended to be fixed by means of screws, on the fasteners of the motor vehicle provided for this purpose.
La figure 4 montre clairement la liaison postérieure de la sangle d'ancrage 17 avec la bande de pontage 13 par l'intermédiaire du passant 15 et il en est de même pour la liaison antérieure 18, 14, 16. FIG. 4 clearly shows the rear connection of the anchoring strap 17 with the bridging strip 13 via the pass-through 15 and the same is true for the front connection 18, 14, 16.
Le passant 15 présente deux fentes 21 et 22 séparant trois barrettes 23 à 25. Pour réaliser la fixation reglable de la sangle 17 sur le passant 15, le brin tenseur 26 de cette sangle place devant ce passant traverse la fente 21, passe derrière la barrette médiane 24, traverse la fente 22 pour se retrouver devant le passant, entoure la barrette extrême 25, passe derrière et retraverse la fente 21 pour devenir un brin libre 27 de ladite sangle. The passer-by 15 has two slots 21 and 22 separating three bars 23 to 25. To achieve the adjustable fixing of the strap 17 on the passer-by, the tensor strand 26 of this strap places in front of this passer-by crosses the slot 21, passes behind the barrette median 24, crosses the slot 22 to find itself in front of the passer-by, surrounds the end bar 25, passes behind and crosses back the slot 21 to become a free strand 27 of the said strap.
Crache à ce cheminement sinueux, toute traction exercee sur le passant 15 par la bande de pontage 13 du sac, alors que la sangle 17 est retenue par sa ferrure d'ancrage 19, a pour effet d'engendrer un autoserrage de ladite sangle d'autant plus intense que 12 traction (donc le choc) est elle-même plus violente. Cependant, ce mode de fixation par autoserrage permet le réglage du sac 1 en position le long de la sangle 17, puisqu'il suffit, après avoir detendu les brins 2, 27 autour des barrettes 24, 25 du passant 15, de faire glisser le brin tenseur 26 de cette sangle dans les fentes 21, 22 de ce.passant. Spits at this winding path, any traction exerted on the passer-by 15 by the bridging strip 13 of the bag, while the strap 17 is retained by its anchoring fitting 19, has the effect of generating a self-tightening of said strap. as much more intense as 12 traction (therefore the shock) is itself more violent. However, this method of fixing by self-tightening allows the bag 1 to be adjusted in position along the strap 17, since it is sufficient, after having relaxed the strands 2, 27 around the bars 24, 25 of the loop 15, to slide the tensor strand 26 of this strap in the slots 21, 22 of ce.passant.
I1 est important de remarquer que les sangles d'ancrage 17 et 18 sont situées de part et d'autre du cendre de gravite de l'enfant 8couche dans la housse 1 et sont suffisamment éloignées de ce centre pour que la stabilite du maintien en cas de choc soit complètement assure, bien que l'enfant ne soit pas bride dans un harnais de sécurité. Par ailleurs, étant donne, d'une part, que les bandes de pontage 13, 14 peuvent s'écarter du sac 1, n'étant fixees que par leurs extrémités, d'autre part que les passants 15, 16 ont mobiles librement le long de ces bandes, la housse 1 se resserre autour de l'enfant 8 lors d'un choc et le maintient encore plus fermement ; en effet, ainsi que cela ressort des figures 3 et 4, chacune des bandes de pontage 13, 14 a tendance a se plier en V et ses extrémités à se rapprocher l'une de l'autre lors d'un choc ; des lors, le pourtour du sac se rétrécit et se resserre sur l'enfant 8. It is important to note that the anchor straps 17 and 18 are located on either side of the child's gravity ash 8 layer in the cover 1 and are sufficiently distant from this center so that the stability of the support in case shock is fully ensured, although the child is not restrained in a safety harness. Furthermore, given, on the one hand, that the bridging strips 13, 14 can deviate from the bag 1, being fixed only by their ends, on the other hand that the passers-by 15, 16 have freely movable the along these strips, the cover 1 tightens around the child 8 during an impact and keeps it even more firmly; in fact, as is apparent from FIGS. 3 and 4, each of the bridging strips 13, 14 tends to bend in a V and its ends to approach one another during an impact; therefore, the perimeter of the bag narrows and tightens on the child 8.
L'invention n'est pas limitée à la forme de realisation représentée et décrite en detail car diverses modifications peuvent y être apportees sans sortir de son cadre.  The invention is not limited to the embodiment shown and described in detail because various modifications can be made without departing from its scope.
