Abstract

The device includes a handle 1, a sleeve 3 and gears 5, 6 and 7 which can turn a bung-connecting socket 8 and a wing-nut of a drain bung 12 while temporarily holding the bung by magnets 9 and 10. The device may allow a user to place and tighten or un-tighten and remove the bung from the end of a pipe by turning the handle and holding the sleeve. The user or technician is able to distance themselves from the placement/removal location of the bung due to the length of the device. A metal washer may be used behind a plastic bung to allow the device to magnetically hold the bung when being placed or removed.

Description

Description
1 Removable Handle 2 Shaft 3 Sleeve 4 Gear housing Bevelled driving gear 6 Bevelled steadying gear 7 Bevelled driven gear 8 Bung connector socket 9 Magnet Magnet 11 Wing-nut locating slots 12 Commercially available drain bung 13 Metal washer 14 Extension unit Technician working without device 16 Technician working with device Figure 1 shows a cut away section of the drain/pipe bung placing/removing mechanical device. The device is to be used with commercially available metal bungs 11 in all their various diameters without any modification to the bungs 11. Operation of the handle 1 turns the shaft 2 inside a sleeve 3 turning a small bevelled gearS on the opposite end of the shaft 2. The driving gears housed in a gear frame 4 turns the larger driven bevelled gear 7. A third bevelled gear 6 is balancing gear. The sleeve 3 is permanently attached to the gear frame 4. A metal bung connector socket 8 is attached to the driven gear 7. Two magnets 9 and 10 are permanently attached to the bung socket connector 8 allowing temporary holding of a drain bung via two wing nut locating slots 12 formed at the end of the drain bung socket connector 8.

Claims (9)

  1. Claims 1 Temporary attachment of the bung to the device allowing lowering of the bung and device into position.
  2. 2 Placement of bung in end of pipe including satisfactory tightening of bung.
  3. 3 Removal of device leaving bung in place and tightened.
  4. 4 Temporary re-attachment of the device to the bung already in place.
  5. Un-tightening and removal of bung from end of pipe.
  6. 6 Raising bung and device out of access point.
  7. 7 Technician 16 remains remote from point of bung placement/removal location.
  8. 8 Technician 16 remains out of access point and at ground level with or without one or more extension units 14 as required.
  9. 9 Plastic bungs are useable by the device simply by the fitting of a single metal washer 13 behind the plastic wing-nut on the bung allowing temporary holding of the bung.
