Description

SPECIFICATION Christmas tree with integral lamps This invention relates to plastic Christmas trees with lamps, in particular to the customary alternating current operated Christmas Tree with Lamps. It has been a tradition that people bought a plastic Christmas tree and decorative lamp sets separately and hang or dress the lamps with the current carrying member on the plastic Christmas tree for decoration purposes. It is also a common practice that people will keep the entire decorative set for more than one year which means that they have to take down the decorative lamp set, dismantle the plastic Christmas tree and store for next year in a controlled manner.

This invention combines the Christmas tree and the decorative lamps together in a way such that the whole tree can be assembled and dismantled easily by a person of normal intelligence without any special tool. Additional design considerations are that it should be entirely safe and reliable during normal use, self standing, rigid and sturdy in construction.

It is therefore an important object of this invention to provide a unique Christmas tree with integral lamps for connection to a suitable alternating current power source for lighting up the integral lamps, wherein the Christmas tree with integral lamps is characterised by the ease in which a normal intelligent person can assemble and dismantle the Christmas tree with integral lamps in simple procedure without tools in safe condition and will not affect the internal circuit connections of the whole Christmas tree with integral lamps.

It is also an object of this invention to provide a unique Christmas tree with integral lamps for connection to a suitable alternating current power source for lighting up the integral lamps, wherein the Christmas tree with integral lamps is characterised in that all current carrying members except the supply cord from the alternating source to the basin are located, fixed and dressed inside the tree trunk and branched such that they cannot be seen or accessed.

it is a further object of this invention to provide a unique Christmas tree with integral lamps for connection to a suitable alternating current power source for lighting up the integral lamps, wherein the Christmas tree with integral lamps is characterised by the ease of removal and replacement of the lamps without any tool, and the mechanical source of the interconnection of various detachable portions may be carried out by an independent mechanical device employing generally used methods.

The foregoing objects of the invention are accomplished by providing a Christmas tree with integral lamps for connection to a suitable alternating current power source for lighting up the integral lamps, wherein the Christmas tree with integral lamp has a basin, a main trunk which is joined to the basin and secured by a pin, a tree top with leaves and branches joined to the main trunk in a specific pattern by pins. The main trunk itself can further be dismantled to different trunk sections, but when in assembled condition, these are secured by pins.

A transformer with necessary electrical accessories is enclosed by the basin. At the top of the basin is a hollow cylindrical portion, where a pair of terminals are fixed inside such that electrical power from the transformer can be obtained from these terminals through suitable wiring.

At one end of a trunk section, a pair of terminals are fixed inside the hollow cylindrical trunk and this is termed the female end of the trunk section. At one appropriate position very near to the other end of the trunk (the male end) are six outlets, axially separated uniformly apart and longitudinally inclined at an angle of 750 to the axis. Two pieces of metallic contacts present with are electrically connected to the pair of terminals at the female end by wires, forms six pairs of contacts inside the six outlets and furthermore part of them protrude out at the male end in a way such that when connected and secured to the female end of another trunk section or to the top of the basin, electricity from the terminals of the top of the basin or from the connected trunk section can be distributed to the six outlets and to the terminals at the female end.

A pair of terminals are interference fitted inside the hollow cylindrical portion of the branch, the lamp end of the branch. At the other end of the branch, the contact end of the branch, is a pair of conducting members which are electrically connected by wires to the pair of terminals at the lamp end separately, and are interference fitted to the branch. After proper connection to the contact end of the branch and one of the six outlets of any trunk section, electricity from the protruded contacts at the male end of the trunk can be distributed to the terminals of the branch at the lamp, separately and individually. The lamp end of the branch is capable of holding a suitable subminature type lamp firmly and is also capable of transmitting electricity from the terminals to the lamp causing it to light up.

The present invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings wherein: Fig. 1 is a longitudinal cross-sectional view of the upper hollow cylindrical portion of the top of the basin.

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal cross-sectional view of a trunk-section which shows only two crosssectional views of the six outlets (other outlets are of the same construction).

Fig. 3 is a transverse cross-sectional view of an outlet of the trunk as seen sectioned along line 28 in Fig. 2 and seen in direction 29 in Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a longitudinal sectional view of a branch assembly sectioned along axis 53.

Fig. 5 is a longitudinal sectional view of a branch assembly along axis 53 but at an angle of 900 to Fig. 4.

Fig. 6 is a side view of a whole assembled Christmas tree with integral lamps which shows the basin, sections, the tree top section and 14 branch sections (only 14 are shown since the product is axially symmetrical and on an actual product, 42 branches will be present).

The upper hollow cylindrical portion of the top of the basin of the Christmas tree with integral lamps, generally as 10, as seen in Fig. 1, is seen as half-sectioned. Two terminals 11, 12 which are .electrically conductive were firstly separately crimped to wires 13, 14 which are electrically conductive, and then interference fitted and fixed to raised portions 1 5, 1 6 of the inside of the hollow cylindrical trunk such that they cannot be separated without using a special tool.No conductive part is between the terminals 11, 1 2 since the basin top is made of non-conductive plastics material whereby the terminals 11, 12 are insulated from each other and are capable of transmitting electrical current from the wire 1 2 to terminal 1 1 and from wire 14 to terminal 12 independently and individually.

The trunk section is seen sectioned in Fig. 2 and part of it in Fig. 3, is generally as 17, consisted of upper trunk 18, lower trunk 19, insulator 20, upper contact 21, lower contact 22, terminals 23, 24 and connecting wires 25, 26. The upper trunk 1 8 has two raised portions 30, 32 at the inside portion at one of its ends 52 which provides interference fit with the two terminals 23, 24 such that they cannot be separated from the trunk without using a special tool and are electrically insulated from one another.Two conducting insulation coated wires 25, 26 are crimped to the terminals 23, 24 separately and at the other end of the wires 23, 24 upper contact 21 and lower contact 22 are joined to the wires 23, 24 separately such that electrical current from upper contact 21 can be transmitted to wire 25 then to terminal 23 and electrical current can be transmitted from lower contact 22 to wire 26 then to terminal 24 separately and individually. The upper contact 21 is fixed within the enclosure formed by the upper trunk 18 and the insulator 20 by tight fit clearance and the six bosses 31 and the like on the upper trunk 1 8. The lower contact 22 is fixed within the enclosure formed by the insulator 20 and the lower trunk 1 9 by tight fit clearance and the six raised pins 32 and the like on the lower trunk 19.After the lower trunk 19 and the upper trunk 1 8 are joined together by interference fit or cementing of the pins 32 and the like and the bosses 81 and the like through the holes 33 and the like on the insulator 20, both the upper contact 21 and the lower contact 22 and the insulator 20 can not have any axial rotation around axis 27 and any transverse movement along axis 27 of the upper trunk 18 is held steady with respect to axis 27 in terms of axial rotation and transverse motion.

A protruded part 34 ofthe insulator 20 protrudes from the lower trunk 1 9 through a rectangular opening 35 and has two depressed slots 36, 37 at each side of the protruded part 34 for location of the extended portion 38 of the upper contact 21 and the extended portion 39 of the lower contact 22. The ends of the extended portions 38, 29 are further bent inward to a recess 40 of the insulator 20 for securing.

As part of the upper contact 21, six extended tongues 41 and the like protrude outwards radially with respect to axis 27 but inclined at 75 degrees to the axis 27; five of them are of the same width and one much narrower. From these tongues 41 and the like another portion 42 and the like of the upper contact 21 are bent at 900 to a plane parallel to the axis 27 with raised dimples 43 and the like on the bent portion 42 and the like as a part of the upper contact 21. There are also six extended tongues 44 and the like protruding radially outwards with extended respect to the axis 27 but inclined at 750 with the axis 27, where five of them are of the same width and one is narrower.From these tongues 44 and the like another portion 45 and the like of the lower contact 22 is bent at 900 to a plane parallel to the axis 27 with raised dimples 46 and the like on the bent portions 45 and the like. Each portion 41, 42,43 and the like of the upper contact 21 is insulated from the portions 44, 45, 46 and the like of the lower contact 22 by the portions 47 and the like of the insulator 20 and is enclosed by the outlets enclosure 48 and the like of the upper trunk 1 8 and the outlet enclosure 49 and the like of the lower trunk 19 such that no portion of the ,upper contact 21 and the lower contact 22 can be touched by a normal human finger.

There are two holes 50 and the like on the side of the upper trunk 18 such that their centre axes are perpendicular and pass through the axis 27.

There is a hole 51 on the insulator such that its centre axis is perpendicular and passes through the axis 27. In case of one complete trunk assembly, the first trunk assembly 1 7 is fitted to another completed trunk assembly 17, the second trunk assembly, such that the protruded end 34 of the insulator from the first trunk assembly is fitted into the opening end 52 of the second trunk assembly, holes 50 and the like and 51 are in the same axis aligned so that a straight pin can pass through all three holes, where the trunk assemblies 17 and the like will be securely locked together.The portion 36 of the upper contact 21 and the portion 37 of the lower contact 22 rested on the protruded portion 34 of the first trunk assembly will then be in contact with the terminals 23 and 24 of the second trunk assembly for conducting electric current individually and separately.

When the protruded end 34 of the insulator 20 from one trunk assembly 1 7 in general is fitted into the opening 52 of the basin top, portion 36 of the upper contact 21 and portion 37 of the lower contact 22 will be in contact with terminal 1 4 and 1 3 respectively and holes 51 and 53 and the like will be in the same axis and aligned such that when a straight pin is inserted, the trunk 1 7 will be mechanically secured and fixed to the basin top.

As seen in Fig. 4 and Fig. 5, two terminals 54 and 55 respectively are firstly crimped to wires 56, 57 respectively, and are then located and fixed inside the clearance formed by the branch 58 and the retainer 59 when the retainer 59 is interference fitted to the branch 58 via the lamp end 60 opening of the branch 58. A narrow part 61 inside the branch 58 prevents the retainer 59 from entering the branch 58 too deeply. At the other ends of the wires 56, 57, two contacts 61 and 62 were soldered to them and the contacts 61 and 62 are located and fixed inside the clearance formed by the branch 58 and the end retainer 63 when the end retainer 63 is fitted into the branch 58 via the contact end 64 of the branch 58.A neck portion 65, raised from branch 58 inside the branch 58 near the contact end 64 prevents the end retainer 63 from entering too deeply and provides interference fit with the end retainer 63 to held the end retainer 63 in position and the contacts 61,62 in position. When assembled, electric current can be transmitted from contact 61 to wire 56 then to the terminal 54 and from contact 62 to wire 57 then to contact 55 separately and individually.

As seen in Fig. 4, Fig. 3 and Fig. 2, when the contact end 64 of the branch assembly 66 is fitted into one arm 67 of the trunk assembly 17, the portion 68 of the upper trunk 18 and the portion 69 of the lower trunk 19 will be fitted inside the opening 70 of the branch assembly 66 such that the contacts 61, 62 will be in contact with the dimples 43 of the upper contact 21 and dimples 46 of the lower contact 22 and with the holes 71, 72 of the branch assembly 66 in the same axis as the hole 73 of the insulator 20 so that when a straight pin is passed through the holes 71, 72 and 73, the branch assembly 66 will then be securely fixed to the trunk assembly 1 7 with electric current running from upper contact 21 and lower contact 22 to terminals 54 and 55 individually and separately.

When a suitable subminature type lamp is inserted to the branch assembly 58 through the opening 60, which will then be held in position by interference provided by the inside wall 74 of the opening 60 of the branch assembly and an electric current can flow from terminals 54 to 55 by passing through the positioned sub-minature lamp and then cause the positioned subminature lamp to light up.

When the necessary connection of seven trunk sections, basin 42 branch assembly and the tree top section is completed and as shown in Fig. 6, electric power can be transmitted from the basin to the trunk section and branch assembly via the above mentioned upper contacts, lower contacts, terminals, contacts and terminals to the lamp such that each lamp which can be located at the end of the branch will light up. The tree can suitably bye 3 to 5 feet high.

For further explanation, the following part drawings of parts are also attached; Fig. 7 upper contact Fig. 8 lower contact Fig. 9 insulator Fig. 10 retainer Fig. 11 end retainer.

The wiring may be arranged so that the lights blink on and off in a random manner.
