|20120182724||LIGHTING APPARATUS - A low profile lighting apparatus is characterized by a battery housing, a rail-engaging plate connected to the housing by a pair of arms, and a recessed activating push-button located between the arms and adjacent the rail-engaging plate. A flexible resilient tab, also recessed between the arms, secures the apparatus to a rail. A lock-out switch is built into a plug for closing an end of the housing. The plug has three discrete rotational positions, one for attachment, a second for activation of an illumination source, and a third for preventing accidental activation of the illumination source by requiring simultaneous axial pressure and rotation. Instead of the plug, a hinged door having a sliding latch part can be utilized. The sliding latch part includes a pair of resilient legs that cooperate with surfaces inside the door to urge the latch part toward a latching condition.||07-19-2012|
|20120057331||Lighting Apparatus with Detachable Clip Mount - In a lighting apparatus comprising a light source housing is pivoted on a clip that can attach alternatively to a head strap adapter or to an adapter secured to a night vision goggle mounting plate. The clip includes a horizontal member having a bracket on the light source housing is rotatable, a pair of spaced, upwardly extending, tabs, and a vertical member extending upward from a location between the tabs. The upwardly extending tabs enter slots on the bottom of the adapter or mounting base, and a rib on the top of the adapter or mounting base is received by a snap fit in a downwardly facing slot on a horizontal part at the upper end of the vertical member of the clip.||03-08-2012|
|20110188236||ADJUSTABLE LIGHT - In an adjustable light, a mounting base is formed with a pair of arcuate slots for receiving hooks protruding from a light module. For attachment of the light module to the base, the hooks enter open ends of the respective slots, and the light module is rotated to engage the hooks with the slots. A sheet of spring metal with two series of protrusions is sandwiched between a rear part of the base and a front part in which the slots are formed. The protrusions are exposed through the slots, and a space is provided behind the protrusions, allowing them to move resiliently when engaged by the hooks as the light module is rotated so that the light module can be retained in any selected one of a plurality of angular positions.||08-04-2011|
|20090207591||PERSONAL HEADLAMP - In a personal headlamp, a housing, containing both an illumination source and a power source, is mounted in cantilever fashion on a bracket that comprises a back part and a collar fastened to, and extending forward from, the back part. A resilient pawl, which extends from the back part through a slot in the collar, is engageable with any selected one of a series of circumferentially spaced notches formed on a ring-like protrusion on the housing that fits rotatably into the collar.||08-20-2009|
|20090079398||BATTERY OPERATED LED LAMP AND CONTROL - An LED lamp adapted for use as a bicycle light includes a lamp/switch module and a power supply/control module. The control includes a microcontroller that performs both light operating functions and battery charging control functions. A low battery warning is provided as a non-repeating, short sequence of flashes of the lamp.||03-26-2009|
