Class Information
Number: 24/442
Name: Buckles, buttons, clasps, etc. > Including readily dissociable fastener having numerous, protruding, unitary filaments randomly interlocking with, and simultaneously moving towards, mating structure (e.g., hook-loop type fastener)
Description: Subject matter including means (1) for securing a segment of the structure-to-be-secured* to either supporting structure therefor or a distinct segment thereof in a manner allowing the securement to be quickly detached, and (2) having a multiplicity of individual threadlike (i.e., the size of a cross-sectional area thereof taken perpendicular to its longitudinal axis being extremely small when compared to the area of the common mounting surface for the members) members which (a) each have all of their components integral with or fixedly attached to one another (b) are mounted to a common mounting surface anchored to the structure-to-be-secured* or a support structure therefor from which they extend upwardly, and (c) are intended to move both without preorientation and in unison towards engagement with separate, opposed structure attached to, formed from, or consisting of the distinct segment of the structure-to-be-secured* or the support structure therefor with which each threadlike member individually and mechanically interlocks (i.e., its movement is restricted in the direction in which force is transmitted thereto by the structure-to-be-secured*) to complete the securement.
