Class Information
Number: 24/464
Name: Buckles, buttons, clasps, etc. > Clasp, clip, support-clamp, or required component thereof > Having inserted and receiving interlocking members connected by bendable, nonbiasing strap
Description: Clasp* having (a) a projecting portion of one gripping member (e.g., button, hook) inserted within a cavity portion of the opposed gripping member (e.g., open loop, aperture, or slot member) which receives both it and the structure-to-be-secured* in such a manner as to subsequently restrict their relative movement in the direction in which force is transmitted thereto by the structure-to-be-secured* and (b) a flexible nongripping, elongated material through which the gripping members are solely attached and which is capable of bending at several points along its length without any essential resilient biasing of either gripping member (i.e., the elongated material, when formed from a resilient* substance, could theoretically be replaced by a flaccid* material and the clasp* would still function properly).
