Element for connecting two objects, especially parts of appliances
WO 2003008813 A3
Abstract
The invention relates to a connection element (2h) for mechanically connecting two objects (8, 9). Said element consists at least partially of a memory metal and has, as a first form of embodiment (2t), an open clamp comprising two limbs (2b, 2c) having free ends and being interconnected by means of an intermediate part (2a). In the assembled state, said limbs are introduced into corresponding openings (10a, 10b) in the two objects (8, 9). In the mounted state, said limbs (2b', 2c') ensure the connection between the two objects (8, 9) with a second embodiment (2h), due to a deformation, using the memory properties thereof.
