  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • FIG. 1 is a schematic view of the present invention.
  • FIG. 2 is a perspective exploded view of the present invention.
  • FIG. 3 is a sectional view of the present invention.
  • FIG. 4 is a schematic view of a preferred embodiment of the present invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • The following descriptions are of exemplary embodiments only, and are not intended to limit the scope, applicability or configuration of the invention in any way. Rather, the following description provides a convenient illustration for implementing exemplary embodiments of the invention. Various changes to the described embodiments may be made in the function and arrangement of the elements described without departing from the scope of the invention as set forth in the appended claims.
  • Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, there is shown a golf-club head cleaning device 1 having a container body configuration and is externally mounted with a control switch 10. The device 1 is activated or deactivated by pressing the control switch 10. In accordance with the present invention, the device 1 comprises a top brush 11, a top cover 12, a power brush module 13, motor 14, a middle housing 15, a blower 16, a bottom cover 17 and a chargeable battery 18.
  • The top cover 12 is mounted at the top portion of the middle housing 15 which facilitates the cleaning of the power brush or the replacement of the power brush 131 within the power brush module 13. The surface of the top cover 12 has a middle slot 121 as a holding seat 122 for holding, and the holding seat 122 of the sides of the bottom edges of the middle slot 121 is used for the mounting of the top brush 11, which is formed into a brush to provide the first brushing for golf-club head to clean away the bigger piece of mud and grasses thereon.
  • As shown in FIG. 2, the power brush module 13 includes a power brush 131, a main shaft 132, a top-middle partition plate 133, a main frictional wheel 134, a driven frictional wheel 135 and a bottom-middle partition plate 136. The main frictional wheel 134 is connected to the main shaft of the motor 14 and the chargeable battery 18 supplies power to the motor 14 such that the main frictional wheel touches and drive the driven frictional wheel 135.
  • The shaft of the driven frictional wheel 135 is mounted into a shaft hole 1311 of the power brush module 131 and is locked by a locking nut 1312. Thus the power brush module 131 rotates about the main shaft 132. The lower section of the main shaft 132 is mounted with a sleeve 1321 and a bearing 132 which are respectively connected to the hole positions 133-1, 136-1 and hole 1351 formed by the top and middle partition plate 133 and the driven frictional wheel 135 and the bottom and middle partition plate 136 such that the main shaft 132 and the driven frictional wheel 135 drive synchronously the power brush module 131 so that the power brush module 131 is the mechanism of the device 1 for cleaning.
  • Referring to FIGS. 2 and 3, the top and middle partition plate 133 and the bottom and middle partition plate 133 are correspondingly locked to each other and a plurality of locking seat lugs 133-2, 136-2 at corresponding edge are used to lock to a support 151 at the bottom section of the middle housing 151 which provides protection of the driven frictional wheel 135 and the main frictional wheel 134 and to effectively prevent mud, sand and dust to enter. At the same time, the top and middle partition plate 133 and the bottom and middle partition plate 136 form into a cavity 1330 at the two lateral sides such that the brushed off sand, mud or dust fall into this cavity 1330 via a bottom isolation slot 152. The blower 16 mounted to the main shaft of the motor generates strong wind, together with the function of a plurality of plates having a discharging port 172 at the end thereof is used to clean away the mud, sand, and dust.
  • As shown in FIG. 3, the lateral side of the middle housing 15 is formed integrally a battery shell 181 for the accommodation of a chargeable battery 18, which could be any batteries used in vehicles to supply power to the motor.
  • As shown in FIG. 4, in the power brush module mechanism 13, the main frictional wheel 134 and the driven wheel 135 are the main belted wheel 137 and the driven belted wheel 138 for driving the power brush module 131. The main shaft of the frictional wheel 137 could be mounted with a bottom brush 139 and the cleaning of the club head is further improved.
  • It will be understood that each of the elements described above, or two or more together may also find a useful application in other types of methods differing from the type described above.
  • While certain novel features of this invention have been shown and described and are pointed out in the annexed claim, it is not intended to be limited to the details above, since it will be understood that various omissions, modifications, substitutions and changes in the forms and details of the device illustrated and in its operation can be made by those skilled in the art without departing in any way from the spirit of the present invention.
