Image Number 7 for United States Patent #5630610.
A vehicular air bag installation arrangement for a passenger includes an instrument panel having an elongated recessed compartment formed therein. The recessed compartment includes a front side open to a front side of the instrument panel and dimensioned to act as a unit case for an air bag module. The air bag module is sub-assembled and includes a base member shaped to act as a bracket within the recessed compartment, an inflater mounted within the base member and an air bag, which is folded in front of the inflater, and includes two extending edge portions wrapped around the outside of the base containing the inflater. The extending edge portions include bolt holes that engage weld bolts projected from the outer side of the base member. The weld bolts are then used to mount the base member within the recessed compartment.
