Abrégé français

Des supports d'installation tiennent des lanternes solaires comme celles utilisées pour l'éclairage des jardins et des sentiers. Les lanternes peuvent être tenues à la main lorsqu'elles sont installées pour être libérées du support d'installation où elles reçoivent le rayonnement solaire de charge et où un utilisateur aura souvent besoin d'utiliser une lanterne. Elles peuvent être installées, par exemple, sur le côté des portes ou sur des piquets de clôture ou de portail ou sur des murs comme des murs extérieurs d'un bâtiment ou dans une enceinte fermée comme une remise, des contenants de stockage métalliques, etc. Un utilisateur n'aura aucune difficulté à repérer la lanterne la plus proche à la noirceur puisque les lanternes activent automatiquement leurs éléments éclairants à la tombée du jour. L'utilisateur peut ensuite simplement retirer la lanterne de son pieu, qui sert alors de poignée de lanterne, et les pinces résilientes du support d'installation libèrent la lanterne.


Abrégé anglais

Mounting brackets hold solar-powered lanterns such as used for garden and pathway lighting. The lanterns make useful hand held lighting if they are releasably mounted in the mounting bracket where they will get sunshine for charging and where a user will often need to use a lantern. They may be mounted for example beside doors or on fence or gate posts, or on walls such as the outside walls of buildings or enclosures such as storage sheds, metal storage containers, etc. A user has no trouble locating the closest lantern after dark as the lanterns automatically turn their lighting elements on when it gets dark. The user may then merely pull the lantern by its stalk, which now serves as the lantern handle, and the resilient tongs of the mounting bracket releases the lantern.


Note : Les revendications sont présentées dans la langue officielle dans laquelle elles ont été soumises.

WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:
1. A system for providing portable hand-held lighting comprising:
a mounting bracket having a base at a base end of said bracket and a pair of
resiliently
operable tongs at an opposite distal end, distal from said base end, a shank
extending
between said base and distal ends, wherein said base lies substantially in a
base plane
and wherein said pair of tongs define a throat having an opening between ends
of said
pair of tongs wherein said opening opens and closes as said pair of
resiliently operable
tongs resiliently open and close to expand and contract a cross-sectional area
of said
throat, and wherein said throat has a bore axis passing substantially
centroidally
therethrough, said bore axis inclined relative to said base plane,
a solar powered lantern having a solar powered lighting head at an upper end
of said
lantern and a rigid elongate stalk at a lower end of said lantern, said stalk
mounted
under said head so as to extend substantially linearly downwardly from said
head and
wherein said head has a diameter that is greater than a diameter of said
stalk, and
wherein said diameter of said stalk is substantially in the range of 3/8 inch
to one inch,
and wherein said stalk has a longitudinal axis extending substantially
centroidally
along and through said stalk and said head, and wherein said stalk is
releasably
mountable into said throat through said opening into a mounted position
wherein said
longitudinal axis is substantially co-linear with said bore axis, and wherein
said stalk is
manually removable from said throat by pulling of said stalk through said
opening as
said opening said resiliently opens and closes, wherein said base is adapted
for
mounting to a rigid substantially vertical mounting surface so as to dispose
said bore
axis upwardly and outwardly inclined from said base plane when said base is
mounted
to said vertical mounting surface so that said base plane is adjacent and
substantially
parallel to said vertical mounting surface.
17

2. The system of claim 1 further comprising a plurality of said mounting
brackets and a
corresponding plurality of said lanterns, said plurality of said mounting
brackets
adapted for mounting to said vertical mounting surfaces when said vertical
mounting
surfaces are chosen from the group of locations comprising: a tree, a post, a
pole, a
door, a gate, a door frame, a railing, a wall.
3. The system of claim 2 wherein said base's of said plurality of said
mounting brackets
are adapted for mounting to said vertical mounting surfaces at an elevated
location for
ease of grasping of said stalks by the user and said pulling of said stalks by
the user.
4. The system of claim 3 wherein said pairs of tongs are made of resilient
material.
5. The system of claim 4 wherein said material includes 90 A durometer
polyurethane.
6. The system of claim 4 wherein said base is made of resilient material.
7. The system of claim 6 wherein said material includes 90 A durometer
polyurethane.
8. The system of claim 7 wherein said mounting bracket is entirely made up
of said
material.
9. A method for providing portable hand-held lighting comprising:
(a) providing a mounting bracket having a base at a base end of
said bracket
and a pair of resiliently operable tongs at an opposite distal end, distal
from said base end, a shank extending between said base and said distal
end, wherein said base lies substantially in a base plane and wherein said
pair of tongs define a throat having an opening, wherein said opening
opens and closes as said pair of resiliently operable tongs resiliently open
18


and close to expand and contract a cross-sectional area of said throat, and
wherein said throat has a bore axis passing substantially centroidally
therethrough, said bore axis inclined relative to said base plane,
(b) providing a solar powered lantern having a solar powered lighting head
at an upper end of said lantern and a rigid elongate stalk at a lower end of
said lantern, said stalk mounted under said head so as to extend
substantially linearly downwardly from said head and wherein said head
has a diameter that is greater than a diameter of said stalk, and wherein
said diameter of said stalk is substantially in the range of 3/8 inch to one
inch, and wherein said stalk has a longitudinal axis extending
substantially centroidally along and through said stalk and said head,
(c) releasably mounting said stalk into said throat through said opening
into
a mounted position wherein said longitudinal axis of said stalk is
substantially co-linear with said bore axis of said throat, and wherein said
stalk is manually removable from said throat by pulling of said stalk
away from said mounting bracket and through said opening in said pair
of tongs as said opening said resiliently opens and closes,
(d) mounting said base to a rigid substantially vertical mounting surface
so
as to dispose said bore axis upwardly and outwardly said inclined from
said base plane and so that said base plane is adjacent and substantially
parallel to said vertical mounting surface.
10. The method of claim 9 further comprising providing a plurality of said
mounting
brackets and a corresponding plurality of said lanterns, and mounting said
plurality of
said mounting brackets to said vertical mounting surfaces, when chosen from
the group
of locations comprising: a tree, a post, a pole, a door, a gate, a door frame,
a railing, a
19


wall, and wherein said locations are exterior locations chosen to position
upper ends of
said heads of said plurality of said lanterns so that they are exposed to
sunlight on a
sunny day.
11. The method of claim 10 further comprising mounting said base's of said
plurality of
said mounting brackets at elevated said locations for ease of grasping of said
stalks by
the user and for ease of said pulling of said stalks by the user.
12. The method of claim 11 wherein said pairs of tongs are made of
resilient material.
13. The method of claim 12 wherein said material includes 90 A durometer
polyurethane.
14. The method of claim 12 wherein said base is made of resilient material.
15. The method of claim 14 wherein said material includes 90 A durometer
polyurethane.
16. The method of claim 15 wherein said mounting bracket is entirely made
up of said
material.
17. The method of claim 9 wherein said inclination of said bore axis is
substantially in the
range of ten to fifteen degrees from the vertical.
18. The system of claim 1 wherein said inclination of said bore axis is
substantially in the
range of ten to fifteen degrees from the vertical.
