A detachable coupling is provided to interconnect a horizontally disposed bed support rail to an upright bedpost. The ends of the bedrail are provided with vertically oriented, channel-shaped feet or pegs. Each such downward projection has a web extending transversely across the end of the bedrail and side walls secured to both sides of the bedrail. The foot depends from the bedrail end and the width of the side walls diminishes with distance from the bedrail, whereby the side walls are not quite rectangular, but are actually of trapezoidal shape. A vertically oriented, channel-shaped pocket is secured to the bedpost at each of the detachable coupling positions. The pocket has a web spaced outwardly from the bedpost and side walls secured to the bedpost. The pocket has a draft that conforms to the shape of the foot so as to snugly receive the foot therewithin. A transverse locking screw engages both the foot and the pocket so as to immobilize the foot within the pocket. A detachable coupling of this construction is far superior in structural rigidity as contrasted with conventional detachable bed frame joints.
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.
