  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • The present invention relates to a clip-on mount for a cellular telephone attachment wherein the clip-on mount removably attaches to a strap or a belt. The present invention also relates to a method of mounting a common cellular telephone attachment to a strap or belt.
  • FIG. 1 diagrammatically illustrates clip-on mount 10 removably attached to belt or strap 11. FIGS. 1, 2 and 3 are discussed currently herein. Similar numerals designate similar items throughout the drawings.
  • FIG. 2 diagrammatically illustrates clip-on mount 10 in an open position with first member 12 open with respect to second member 14. The clip-on mount shown in FIGS. 2-3 shows clam shell members 12, 14.
  • All the clip-on mounts 10 in FIGS. 2-10 include a cell phone attachment, one of which is shown as cell phone attachment 16 in FIG. 1. Cell phone attachment 16 includes a generally U-shaped channel and a button release on end 18 of member 12. Member 14 is closed and captures, in conjunction with member 12, strap or belt 11. Other cell phone attachment mechanisms can be mounted or formed on surface 20 of member 12. Cell phone 22 is mounted on cell phone attachment system 16 as shown by arrow 24. Examples of other cell phone attachments are listed above in the Background of the Invention.
  • As shown in FIG. 2, members 12, 14 are hinged together via hinge 30 along side 32. Button 19 is utilized as part of the common cellular telephone attachment 16 to release cell phone 22 from the cell phone attachment 16. Other types of release mechanisms, as is known in conjunction with other cellular telephone attachment systems, can be incorporated, attached, mounted or formed on member 12. Members 12, 14 have complementary interfacing shapes and inter-fitting edge regions 40, 42 and 44, 46. A latch, clasp or closure system 50 is incorporated on complementary portions of members 12, 14. In the illustrated embodiment, a clasp 50 is utilized. Clasp 50 is on the opposite edge from hinge side 32.
  • The interior surface of members 12, 14 include, in a preferred embodiment, a compressible material 52, 54. Compressible material and hinge 30 permit the members 12, 14 to securely capture and stay secured to belt or strap 11. Compressible foam or other compressible material 52, 54 is compressible for two primary reasons. First, the thickness of the belt or strap can vary. The compressible material generally molds around the belt or strap. Further, the utilization of compressible material 52, 54 enables a very tight grip on the belt or strap and provides a spring fit of member 12 and member 14 about belt or strap 11. In a preferred embodiment, the compressible material is compressible foam.
  • Although the shape and thickness of members 12, 14 can be varied, essentially members 12, 14 define two opposing plates which are hinged together. In operation, the clip-on mount 10 is opened as shown in FIG. 12 due to the release of the latch, clasp or other closure system 50. When open, the belt or strap 11 is passed through the open plates 12, 14 and then the plates are closed and the belt or strap is captured by compressive force between opposing plates 12, 14. Closure system 50 locks the plates together. The cell phone 22 is then attached by the common cellular telephone attachment 16 (or other common cellular telephone attachments, some of which are identified in the Background of the Invention) to the clip-on mount 10.
  • FIG. 4 diagrammatically illustrates a latch or a clasp forming closure system 50. Latch 60 includes an operator tab or interface 62, a lip 64 which coacts with a ledge 66. Ledge 66 is formed on side 68 of member 14. Operator interface 62 and lip 64 are formed on side 60 of member 12. Other closure systems may be utilized in conjunction with the present invention. Latches, clasps, a small strap extending about members 12, 14, a button system or a snap system or a VELCRO or cloth hook and loop system may operate to secure members 12, 14 and capture belt or strap 11 between internal compressible surfaces 52, 54. Compressive closures other than VELCRO work best.
  • FIG. 5 shows a cellular telephone attachment system and a clip-on mount 10. Clip-on mount 10 includes a closure system including an extending tab 112 which coacts with a channel, cut-out or latch aperture in protruding member 114. Compressible surface 52 is mounted on member 12. Extending tab 114 is formed on member 14. Member 14 also includes interfacing compressible material 54.
  • FIGS. 6, 7 and 8 diagrammatically illustrate another embodiment of the present invention. In this embodiment, interfacing surface material 52 includes a raised land 130. Also, the interfacing material 52 is mounted on member 12. Member 12 may also have a raised land 131. With respect to plate 14, the interfacing material, preferably compressible foam, is divided into interface material segments 54 a and 54 b. Compressible foam segments 54 a-54 b are spaced apart and form a valley 129 that generally conforms and complements opposing land 130. In addition, compressible material 52 defines valleys 132, 134 on either side of raised land 130. Just as raised land 130 fits into complementary valley 129, compressible foam portions 54 a, 54 b complement valleys 132, 134. When a belt or strap (11 in FIG. 1) passes through and is captured by members 12, 14, a tortuous pathway is provided based upon the raised land 130 and valley 129 and the raised interfacing materials 54 a, 54 b disposed in complementary valleys 132, 134.
  • FIG. 8 diagrammatically illustrates that clip-on mount 10 can be attached to any available cellular telephone attachment because extending platform 210 and 212 (FIG. 6) may include mounting holes, one of which is mounting hole 220, to attach the clip-on mount 10 to the common cellular telephone attachment.
  • FIGS. 9 and 10 diagrammatically illustrate another embodiment wherein interface material 130 a is mounted on interior surface 12 a of member 12. Particularly, interface material 130 a is mounted between upwardly protruding lips 13, 15 extending above interior surface 12 a of member 12. Valleys 132, 134 are formed immediately above surface 12 a and coact with interface material 54 a, 54 b mounted to opposing interior surface 14 a of member 14.
  • FIG. 11 diagrammatically illustrate the interchangeability of the system to mount cell phone or other portable personal electronic devices on a strap or belt. As used herein, the term “portable personal electronic device” includes any small, moderately light, electronic portable device carried by a person such as an MP3 player, personal digital assistant (PDA, Blackberry, etc.), digital camera, and other audio players with computer chip memories such as iPODs. the portable electronic device 310 has, attached thereto, a common cell phone attachment 314 with a button 312 or other complimentary mechanism that cooperates with cell phone attachment 16. The user can select to attach cell phone 22 or personal electronic device 310 to the strap or belt 11 via clip-on mount 10. This is shown by arrows 24 and 316.
  • The claims appended hereto are meant to cover modifications and changes within the scope and spirit of the present invention. For example, although a hinge 30 is shown as a pin in a pair of cylinders, the hinge may be any flexible material that permits member 12 to rotate with respect to member 14 to enable strap or belt 11 to be captured between interfacing material 52, 54. An expansive hinge permitting lateral movement of the plates away from each other may be useful. Further, although a single raised land is shown extending above interior surface 12 a of member 12, multiple raised lands can be provided and used in conjunction with multiple complementary valleys in opposing member 14.
