A device is disclosed that includes a first polymer body having tacky properties. The first polymer body has a substantially-flat exterior surface. One or more protrusions are disposed on the substantially-flat exterior surface of the first polymer body. When the one or more protrusions are in contact with a substantially-flat exterior surface of a second polymer body having tacky properties, the adhesive force between the one or more protrusions and the substantially-flat exterior surface is less than the force of gravity on the first polymer body.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
