An adjustable vehicle seat belt anchor comprises an elongated rail member and a slide member slidably received by the rail member. The rail and slide members are of complementary cross sections, one being generally C-shaped with inturned and offset flanges along each side and the other being generally channel-shaped with out-turned and offset flanges along each edge. A spring-biased retaining pin is movable orthogonally to the direction of movement of the slide member into a selected hole in the rail member. A flange on the end of the pin forms a shoulder that can engage the back edge of the hole to prevent dislodgment of the pin under a high downward force. A deformable member positioned between the hole wall and the pin normally keeps the pin shoulder from engaging the hole edge but is deformed under a high force to permit such engagement.
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.
