Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE PRESENT INVENTION
  • [0001]
    1. Field of Invention
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates to a binding device, and more particularly to an adjustable and detachable binding device for binding up an object, wherein the binding device is adapted to not only selectively adjust a loop size to fit the diameter of the object but also detach from the object while the binding device can be reused to bind up the object due to the change of the diameter of the object.
  • [0003]
    2. Description of Related Arts
  • [0004]
    Traditionally, people used strings, ropes and zip locks as binding fasteners in industrial and routine duty practice. Recently, disposable plastic fasteners have been widely used. Compared with traditional fastening means, like rope, plastic fasteners have a variety of distinctive advantages such as convenience, lower costs, simplicity, free of corrosion, water proof, strength, and so on. As a result, plastic fasteners have replaced traditional fastening means in more and more applications.
  • [0005]
    Just as its name applies, fasteners are adapted for tying up or binding different objects tightly in position. Fasteners could be bent or deformed to define a loop boundary wherein objects were bind within. Those traditional binding devices including plastic fasteners are all shown satisfied performance according to this aspect. However, in many occasions, users not only need fastener to provide tight binding function, but also request fastener to be adjustable and detachable.
  • [0006]
    For instance, the most notorious binding device application is of gardening practice, especially in vineyard or orchard. To seek richer productivity, young growth plants would be bound with wood frames or standing rods to keep corrected extending direction. Meanwhile, some fruitful trees, which occupy large area, need to be bound for gust resistance. Therefore, gardeners should tie those plants with wood frames or rods by ropes or whatever binding means. Unfortunately, the diameters of plants, especially of those seedlings or young growth trees, changed from year to year. If the ropes or fasteners were too tight, the nutrition passage of plants would be restricted thus causing plants wither and yellow, even to the extent death. Therefore, gardeners have to adjust the fasteners' loop diameters from season to season. Here, it could be seen that traditional fastening devices have huge drawbacks.
  • [0007]
    If ropes or strings were fastened in detachable knots, the tight tension could not be guaranteed. Instead, if the dead knots were applied, gardeners would have to cut the ropes or strings to break the knots first, and then bind the plants again with new ropes. This procedure is time consuming and raw materials wasting. What is more, if the strings were made of metal materials, breaking process would be rather frustrating. On the other hand, the gardeners would have to carry plenty of new fastening devices to replace the old ones. It is hard to imagine that one gardener would bind all plants in an orchard of more than thousands of peach trees.
  • [0008]
    Another example, people sometimes would have to deal with bundles of different wires like cables, telephone lines, ordinary electrical lines, etc. To achieve a neat looking appearance, binding those cables with fasteners would be a good idea. However, if a user wishes to adjust the fastener, he or she may merely cut the fastener. The nonadjustable fastening devices do cause a lot of inconvenience.
  • [0009]
    Plastic fasteners are proven having adjustable function in comparison with traditional fastening means like rope. Nevertheless, it could be adjusted in unidirectional way instead of double direction. This is due to the fact plastic fastener for binding purpose is strip shaped and has an elongated body wherein a plurality of closely spaced zigzag teeth were formed on the down portion of its elongated body, while its top portion was formed with corresponding locking arrangement. In practice, users could bend the strip to form a loop structure, and insert the teeth end of elongated body into the slot of locking end until the zigzag teeth fully engaged with the lock thus fastening objects inside the loop. Here, the problem is that once the teeth were engaged with the lock, it could not be adjustable reversely. In other word, this kind of plastic fastener is only for tightening not for loosing up.
  • [0010]
    Therefore, adding an additional cable with the bound cables or removing one of the bound cables would eventually change the diameters of the loop. Users might merely cut the fastener, or else, have to use an additional fastener.
  • [0011]
    In brief, detaching and adjusting fasteners have been a perplexing problem for our lives. A kind of fasteners comprising detachable and adjustable function is highly desirable.

    As shown in FIG. 1, the locker slot 31 is formed as a triangular shape, wherein the locker slot 31 has a width gradually increasing towards the head end of the binding member 10, so as to substantially guide the twisting movement of the tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 within the locker slot 31. The locker slot 31 has a longitudinal length L substantially larger than the width WT of the binding member 10 and a transverse width W which is larger than a thickness of the binding member 10 and is larger than the width W1 of the holding neck portion 22 of each of the locking teeth 21.
  • [0046]
    Accordingly, the longitudinal length L of the locker slot 31 is defined along an adjacent edge thereof for the tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 to slidably inserting therethrough. The locker slot 31 further has a longitudinal guiding width L1 defining at a height of the locker slot 31 at least equal to the width WT of the binding member 10 so as to enhance the tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 to slidably insert through the locker slot 31, as shown in FIG. 1.
  • [0047]
    The tail end of the binding member 10 has a tapered shape having a width W2 substantially smaller than the transverse width W of the locker slot 31 such that the tapered tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 is guided to slide through the locker slot 31 when the tail end of the binding member 10 is inserted therethrough. It is worth to mention that when the tapered tail end of the binding member 10 is inserted through the locker slot 31, the user is able to pull the tail end of the binding member 10 to guide the tail portion 12 thereof to slide through the locker slot 31.
  • [0048]
    In order to operate the adjustable and detachable binding device of the present invention to bind the object 1, the user is able to twist the tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 to align with the longitudinal length L of the locker slot 31, such that the tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 is allowed to slidably pass through the locker slot 31. Then, by applying a pulling force on the tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 at the inserting direction, the tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 is slid through the locker slot 31 to form the binding loop 101. Once the diameter of the binding loop 101 matches the diameter of the object 1, the tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 is then twisted back to its original orientation such that the holding neck portion 22 of the corresponding locking tooth 21 is locked at the locker slot 31 so as to retain the diameter of the binding loop 101 to tightly bind up the object 1. Therefore, the size of the binding loop 101 can be selectively adjusted via the engagement between the locker slot 31 and one of the locking teeth 21 so as to fittingly tight up the object 1 having various sizes.
  • [0049]
    In order to detach the adjustable and detachable binding device from the object 1, the user is able to move the binding member 10 back to the matting position by twisting the tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 to align with the longitudinal length L of the locker slot 31 so as to release the engagement between the locker slot 31 and the corresponding locking tooth 21. Therefore, the tail portion 12 of the binding member 10 is adapted to slide out from the locker slot 31 to detach the binding member 10 from the object 1.
  • [0050]
    It is worth to mention that the mention that the adjustable and detachable binding device of the present invention can be reused to re-bind the object 1 by repeating the binding operation. As a result, for example, the user is able to reuse the adjustable and detachable binding device to bind the plant as the object 1 when the plant grows up. Likewise, the adjustable and detachable binding device can be reused to blind the cables as the object 1 when adding or removing the cables without cutting off the original adjustable and detachable binding device.
  • [0051]
