  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • A fastening device (10) has a clip core (12) and wings (14). The wings (14) generally consists in twin legs (16) that are resiliently flexible to allow for frictional insertion into a groove (18) made into an insertion piece (20) such as a plank of furniture component.
  • In somn embodiment of the invention, the legs (16) can have serrations (22) to provide additional fastening capabilities. For example, in wood wherein various shapes of sharp edges can claw into wood fibers by the force exerted by the resiliently flexible legs (16).
  • In another variant of the fastening device (10), it has only one wing (14) and two legs (16) on one side but having either a tenon (24), a threaded hollow cylinder (26), or a threaded bolt (28) on its other side. In all three cases this alternate side can be threadably, fixedly, or releasably attached to the insertion piece (20). These are ideally suited for shelving units.
  • Yet another variant comprised of an abutting member (30) which is used to determine the gap between to insertion pieces (20) such as, for example, mosaics. Also, when using more rigid materials, rounded tips (32) can be used for insertion into precut channels (not shown).
  • For use on mosaics without a gap between, the variation of FIG. 6 and FIG. 7 is used wherein two protruding tips (34) are configured and sized for fritional insertion into complementarily configured and sized openings (36) and central protruding tips (38) are each frictionally interacting a part of the insertion piece (20). In a slight variant, as seen in FIG. 7, there is only one large protruding tip (38) which performs the same function as the two protruding tips (38) of FIG. 6. The use of resilient deformation for insertion of one element into another element wherein both elements present complementarily configured and sized shapes is known in the art and need not be further discussed herein.
  • FIG. 9 shows a variation wherein the legs (16) are joined so as to form a closed loop that is essentially a wing (14). The wing (14) being resiliently deformable as is the case for the other embodiments.
  • As to a further discussion of the manner of usage and operation of the present invention, the same should be apparent from the above description. Accordingly, no further discussion relating to the manner of usage and operation will be provided.
  • With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized that the optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to include variations in size, materials, shape, form, function and manner of operation, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships to those illustrated in the drawings and described in the specification are intended to be encompassed by the present invention. Therefore, the foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention.
