Abstract

The trunk of the tree (2) is held in a conical cavity (3) in a support (1) that is perpendicular to its surface. A disc is under the base of the trunk and has a central projection (7) that is pushed into the trunk. Three branches (4) are joined to the disc and are distributed round it at 120 deg. The branches each narrow to a point and have projections, in the form of a rack (5,6), on its inner and outer sides. The branches are folded upwards to grip the trunk.

Description

La présente invention concerne un dispositif de maintien vertical d'un objet The present invention relates to a vertical device for holding an object
cylindrique sur son support sapin de Noël ou élément semblable. cylindrical over its Christmas tree carrier or like member.

Dans le domaine de son utilisation préférée, qui est un dispositifde maintien In the area of ​​its preferred use, which is a continuation dispositifde
d'un sapin de Noël sur un support, divers dispositifs sont déjâ connus. a Christmas tree on a support, various devices are already known. II se composent en It consist in
général, soit d'un système de visserie, soit d'un système de leviers articulés. Generally, either a hardware system, or a system of articulated levers. Us nécessitent They require
généralement l'utilisation de plusieurs pièces mécaniques ou sont le fruit d'un usinage generally the use of several mechanical parts or are the result of machining
complexe. complex.

D'autre part, l'utilisation de rondins ou de bûches de bois au titre de support Furthermore, the use of logs or wood logs under support
de sapin de Noël est déjà couramment utilisé. Christmas tree is already commonly used. Mais cela nécessite, outre le perçage d'un trou But this requires, in addition to drilling a hole
dans la bûche, le rabotage du tronc afin de l'ajuster dans le trou, puis sa fixation dans le socle in the log, planing of the trunk in order to fit into the hole and its fastening in the base
å l'aide d'une pointe. å Using a tip.

L'objectif de l'invention consiste à dépasser ces inconvénients et vise à The objective of the invention to overcome these disadvantages and aims to
réaliser un dispositif de maintien de sapin de Noël sur un support selon une procédure de perform a Christmas tree holding device on a support according to a procedure
fabrication simple, d'un prix modeste et d'une utilisation facile tant sur les points de vente simple production, a modest price and easy use both outlets
que chez le consommateur. as the consumer.

L'objectif précité est atteint dans la forme d' éxécution préférée du dispositif, The above objective is achieved in the form of preferred embodiment of the device,
constitué d'une cavité tronconique (3) usinée dans le centre du support (1) consisting of a frustoconical cavity (3) machined in the center of the support (1)
perpendiculairement à sa surface d'appui et d'un élément de maintien (8) composé d'un perpendicularly to its bearing surface and a holding member (8) consisting of a
disque ayant une légère protubérance (7) en son centre et étant pourvu de trois branches (4) à disc having a slight protuberance (7) in its center and being provided with three legs (4)
cent vingt degrés dont les parties tant extérieures qu'intérieures possèdent des saillies (5 -6) one hundred twenty degrees with both external and internal parts have projections (5 -6)
en forme de crémaillères. shaped racks. L'élément de maintien (8) peut s'adapter au tronc (2) par un simple The holding element (8) can be adapted to the trunk (2) by a single
pliage manuel, le disque au contact de la base du tronc, les saillies (5) s'appliquant sur la manual folding the disc in contact with the base of the trunk, the projections (5) resting on the
surface de révolution. surface of revolution. Par ce fait, les arêtes extérieures (9) des branches (4) deviennent des By this fact, the outer edges (9) of the legs (4) become
génératrices de tronc de cone .Grâce à cette disposition, plus la force d'enfoncement du sapin generating truncated cone .With this arrangement, the more fir depressing force
est importante, plus les moyens de fixation se font serrants. , the greater the attachment means are tight-fitting.

Le dispositif selon l'invention, permet donc rapidement et facilement de fixer The device of the invention allows quick and easy to fix
un sapin de Noël sur son support. a Christmas tree on its support. En effet, après avoir appliqué l'élément de maintien sur la Indeed, after applying the holding member on the
base du tronc du sapin, le tout est enfoncé dans la cavité tronconique. base of the tree trunk, the whole is pressed into the frustoconical cavity. Les saillies the projections
judicieusement découpées s'incrustent dans le socle et le tronc, et rendent le mouvement appropriately cut are embedded in the base and the stem, and make the movement
irréversible. irreversible.

La présence de surface de coupe irrégulière, la présence de noeuds ou de The presence of irregular cut surface, the presence of knots or
protubérances sur la base du tronc ne nuisent pas à la qualité du serrage grâce aux trois protuberances on the base of the trunk does not affect the quality of tightening through three
points d'appui de l'élément de maintien crantés, répartis en étoile et ayant une forme effilée. points of support of the notched holding member, distributed in a star and having a tapered shape.

Le diamètre des troncs étant approximativement proportionnel à la taille des sapins, un meme dispositif permet de fixer des sapins de différentes tailles de façon stable et The stem diameter being approximately proportional to the size of trees, a same device enables the setting of trees of different sizes stably and
verticale. vertical.

Les qualités mécaniques des matériaux utilisés tant pour le support que pour The mechanical properties of the materials used for both the support for
l'élément de maintien sont importantes pour l'efficacité du système. the retaining element is important to the effectiveness of the system. Le support doit offrir une résistance à la traction convenable , élément de maintien, quant à lui, doit être d'une dureté supérieure aux matériaux constituants du support et du tronc. The support must provide the proper tensile strength, holding member, in turn, must be of a hardness greater than the constituent materials of the support and trunk.

Une des versions possibles de l'invention peut être réalisée avec une demi bûche de bois où l'axe de la cavité tronconique sera perpendiculaire au sets des One of the possible versions of the invention can be performed with a half log of wood where the axis of the frusto-conical cavity is perpendicular to sets of
I'élément de maintien étant une tôle d'acier emboutie. I'élément holding being a steel sheet metal.

Les dessins annexés illustrent l'invention. The accompanying drawings illustrate the invention. La figure FIG 1 représente une demi vue d'ensemble et une demi vue éclatée du dispositif. FIG FIG 1 is a half overview and half an exploded view of the device. La figure FIG 2 représente l'élément de maintien avant son adaptation au tronc ; FIG FIG 2 shows the holding member before its adaptation to the trunk; une de ses branches (4.2) est représentée avant son passage à l'emboutissage, on y observe les saillies extérieures (6.2) non pliées a branch (4.2) is shown prior to its passage to the drawing, the external projections there observed (6.2) unfolded
