|20140190917||LATCHING SYSTEM FOR A MERCHANDISING APPARATUS - A latching system for a gravity fed merchandising apparatus includes a shelf slidably mounted between a first and a second side bracket, the shelf being adapted to move between a vending position and a stocking position. A first latch member is operably mounted to one of the shelf and the first side bracket and a second latch member is operably mounted to one of the shelf and the second side bracket. The first and second latch members are located adjacent opposed side edges of the shelf. Each of the first and second latch members is resiliently biased to an extended position. An actuating device is provided for moving the first and second latch members to a respective retracted position allowing the shelf to slide from the vending position to the stocking position.||07-10-2014|
|20140166598||MERCHANDISE SECURITY SYSTEM - A merchandising system includes a support adapted to be secured to a first associated merchandising structure and a tile mounted to the support. The tile extends away from the support so as to approach a second associated merchandising structure spaced from the first associated merchandising structure. The tile includes a first portion and a second portion connected to the first portion and selectively slidable in relation to the first portion to change a size of the tile. A protrusion extends from the first portion. The protrusion is connected to the support to enable a movement of the tile in relation to the support thereby allowing selective access to any desired portion of at least one of the first and second associated merchandising structures. The tile front face can include a cut out section or a slot.||06-19-2014|
|20140083961||MERCHANDISE SECURITY SYSTEM - A merchandising system includes a mounting member adapted to be secured to a first associated merchandising structure. A tile is connected to the mounting member. The tile extends away from the mounting member so as to approach a second associated merchandising structure spaced from the first associated merchandising structure. The tile includes a first portion located in a first plane and a protrusion located in a second plane spaced from the first plane. The protrusion is linked to the mounting member. The tile is configured to be movable in relation to the mounting member thereby allowing selective access to a desired portion of at least one of the first and second associated merchandising structures. The connection between the protrusion and the mounting member enables movement of the tile in relation to the mounting member via at least one of pivoting and sliding.||03-27-2014|
|20140034591||ADJUSTABLE MOUNTING STRUCTURE FOR A SHELVING SYSTEM - A shelf system includes a support member that accommodates an associated object for display and dispensing. The support member includes a front end and a rear end. A mounting portion is disposed adjacent the support member rear end. The mounting portion includes a first member which connects to an associated upright and a second member which is operatively connected to the support member. A pin is connected to one of the first and second members and a sleeve is connected to the other of the first and second members, wherein the sleeve selectively accommodates the pin. A fastener is provided for selectively securing the pin in the sleeve.||02-06-2014|
|20140034590||SLIDING AND PIVOTING RETAINER - A merchandising security system includes a support adapted to be secured to a first associated merchandising structure and at least one product barrier movably mounted to the support. The at least one product barrier extends away from the support so as to approach a second associated merchandising structure spaced from the first associated merchandising structure. The product barrier is at least one of slidably mounted in relation to the support and pivotably mounted in relation to the support, wherein the product barrier includes first and second members which cooperate to retard a forward movement of an associated object supported on the first associated merchandising structure. At least one of the first and second members is mounted in relation to the support via a hinge.||02-06-2014|
|20130270204||BASE AND DIVIDER ASSEMBLY - A base and divider assembly includes an elongated base portion and an elongated divider portion which is adapted to be selectively coupled to the base portion. The divider portion includes a plurality of spaced first connection elements extending along a longitudinal axis of the divider portion, and the base portion includes a plurality of spaced second connection elements extending along a longitudinal axis of the base portion. The first and second connection elements are adapted to cooperate so that the divided portion can be selectively mounted to the base portion.||10-17-2013|
|20130078035||FRONT RAIL FOR MERCHANDISING SYSTEM - A merchandising system includes a front rail which is adapted to be selectively mounted to an associated shelf. The front rail includes a fastener element which is of one piece with the front rail. The fastener element selectively secures the front rail to the associated shelf.||03-28-2013|
|20130062295||TRACK AND DIVIDER ASSEMBLY - A merchandise display system includes a base and divider assembly, wherein the base and divider assembly includes a base portion adapted for operative coupling to a front rail and a divider portion for dividing displayed merchandise into rows, wherein the divider portion protrudes from the base portion. A pusher track is defined on one of the base portion and the divider portion and accommodates a spring urged pusher. A flange protrudes away from the divider such that the flange extends in a direction away from the track.||03-14-2013|
|20130061500||LABEL HOLDER - A single panel label holder for a product display supports a label for display to shoppers. The single panel traps the label against an adjacent surface of a corresponding shelf. The label holder includes a member for securing the label holder to the shelf. The securing member can include a clip for selectively mounting the label holder to a return flange of a shelf. Alternatively, an adhesive portion is employed to adhere the label holder to the shelf. The securing member could include an end wall joined to a lower wall via a hinge with the end wall extending over a distal end of a return flange of the shelf. Or, the securing member could include at least one flexible fin which engages a return flange of the shelf. A rear surface of the single panel can be textured or provided with protrusions, nubs, etc.||03-14-2013|
|20130024023||RETAIL SHELF SUPPLY MONITORING SYSTEM - An inventory shelf monitoring system includes a plurality of track systems located on at least one shelf of a retail or warehouse establishment. Each track system includes a sensor and actuator that determines the position of a product pusher. The identity and location of the product pusher, for each track system on the shelf, is sent to a data acquisition and transmitter circuit that assembles, formats, and transmits pusher position data to a central receiver. The data is then transmitted to a central processing unit in a user device that maintains data corresponding to product count, availability, and activity associated with each track unit of each shelf employing the system. Inventory control, the prevention of out-of-stock situations, and the assessment of activity indicative of theft or accident is thus monitored in real time for prompt remedial action.||01-24-2013|
|20110240569||THEFT DETERRENT CAN DISPENSER - A theft deterrent dispensing unit particularly for use with cans includes a conveyor section that leads to a dispensing head. A shroud extends over the forward edge of the conveying section. The dispensing head pivots downwardly allowing the leading can to be grasped without interference of the shroud. The rear edge of the dispensing head pivots upwardly, preventing the next adjacent can from moving immediately into the dispensing head until the dispensing head rotates back to a closed position. Likewise, when the dispensing head is rotated to an open position, a barrier is pulled down from the top of the shroud, again preventing an individual from reaching in and grabbing the next adjacent can. A locking mechanism is positioned on the side of the dispensing units to prevent two adjacent dispensing units from being opened at the same time. Finally, the speed at which the dispensing heads move from an open to a closed position is regulated to prevent rapid removal of cans from a single dispensing unit.||10-06-2011|
