Two strip materials from which portions may be severed and used together as a releasably engageable fastener. Each strip material comprises a bonding layer in which are embedded a plurality of U-shaped monofilaments. Each U-shaped monofilament includes two headed stem portions adapted to engage the headed stem portions of the other strip material, and the monofilaments are rectangularly arrayed, and spaced to provide a number of headed stem portions per unit length that are different from and not a multiple of or evenly divisible by the number of headed stem portions per unit length on the other strip material in any direction so that upon engagement the rows of headed stem portions of one strip material cannot readily slip between the rows of headed stem portions on the other.
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.
