Abrégé anglais


According to one embodiment, an apparatus, connectable to objects of different
sizes,
comprises: a first connection body comprising a first plurality of spaced-
apart connectors and
a second plurality of spaced-apart connectors; and a second connection body
comprising a first
connector and a second connector, the first connector connectable to and
disconnectable from
a first one of the first plurality of spaced-apart connectors, and the second
connector
connectable to and disconnectable from a first one of the second plurality of
spaced-apart
connectors. When the first connector is connected to the first one of the
first plurality of
spaced-apart connectors and when the second connector is connected to the
first one of the
second plurality of spaced-apart connectors, the first connection body and the
second
connection body define a region having a first size between the first
connection body and the
second connection body. Methods are also disclosed.

CLAIMS
1. An apparatus connectable to objects of different sizes, the apparatus
comprising:
a first connection body comprising a first plurality of spaced-apart
connectors and a
second plurality of spaced-apart connectors spaced apart from the first
plurality of spaced-
apart connectors; and
a second connection body comprising a first connector and a second connector
spaced
apart from the first connector of the second connection body, the first
connector connectable
to and disconnectable from a first one of the first plurality of spaced-apart
connectors, and the
second connector connectable to and disconnectable from a first one of the
second plurality of
spaced-apart connectors, wherein when the first connector is connected to the
first one of the
first plurality of spaced-apart connectors and when the second connector is
connected to the
first one of the second plurality of spaced-apart connectors, the first
connection body and the
second connection body define a region having a first size between the first
connection body
and the second connection body.
2. The apparatus of claim 1 further comprising a first cover body defining
an opening
sized to receive an object sized to be clamped in the first region.
3. The apparatus of claim 1 or 2 wherein the first size of the region is
sized to clamp a
generally cylindrical object having a first diameter.
4. The apparatus of claim 1, 2, or 3 wherein the first plurality of spaced-
apart connectors
are spaced apart from each other in a first plane.
5. The apparatus of claim 4 wherein the second plurality of spaced-apart
connectors are
spaced apart from each other in a second plane extending non-parallel to the
first plane.
6. The apparatus of claim 5 wherein the second plane extends generally
perpendicular to
the first plane.
7. The apparatus of any one of laims 1 to 6 further comprising a third
connection body
comprising a third connector and a fourth connector spaced apart from the
third connector of
- 17 -

the third connection body, the third connector connectable to and
disconnectable from a
second one of the first plurality of spaced-apart connectors different from
the first one of the
first plurality of spaced-apart connectors, and the fourth connector
connectable to and
disconnectable from a second one of the second plurality of spaced-apart
connectors different
from the first one of the second plurality of spaced-apart connectors, wherein
when the third
connector is connected to the second one of the first plurality of spaced-
apart connectors and
when the fourth connector is connected to the second one of the second
plurality of spaced-
apart connectors, the first connection body and the third connection body are
positioned to
define a region having a second size, different from the first size, between
the first connection
body and the third connection body.
8. The apparatus of claim 7 wherein the first and second connectors are
spaced apart from
each other by a first separation distance, and wherein the third and fourth
connectors are
spaced apart from each other by a second separation distance different from
the first separation
distance.
9. The apparatus of claim 7 or 8 further comprising a second cover body
defining an
opening sized to receive an object sized to be clamped in the second region.
10. The apparatus of claim 7, 8, or 9 wherein the second size of the region
is sized to
clamp a generally cylindrical object having a second diameter.
11. The apparatus of any one of claims 7, 8, 9, or 10 further comprising a
fourth
connection body comprising a fifth connector and a sixth connector spaced
apart from the fifth
connector of the fourth connection body, the fifth connector connectable to
and disconnectable
from a third one of the first plurality of spaced-apart connectors different
from the first and
second ones of the first plurality of spaced-apart connectors, and the sixth
connector
connectable to and disconnectable from a third one of the second plurality of
spaced-apart
connectors different from the first and second ones of the second plurality of
spaced-apart
connectors, wherein when the fifth connector is connected to the third one of
the first plurality
of spaced-apart connectors and when the sixth connector is connected to the
third one of the
second plurality of spaced-apart connectors, the first connection body and the
fourth
- 18 -

connection body are positioned to define a region having a third size,
different from the first
and second sizes, between the first connection body and the fourth connection
body.
12. A spill container comprising a container body and the apparatus of any
one of claims 1
to 11 connected to the container body.
13. The spill container of claim 12 further comprising a pipe or a pipe
nipple connected to
the apparatus.
14. A method of connecting a first connection body and a second connection
body to an
object, the method comprising:
connecting a first connector of the second connection body to one of a first
plurality of
spaced-apart connectors on the first connection body; and
connecting a second connector of the second connection body, spaced apart from
the
first connector of the second connection body, to one of a second plurality of
spaced-apart
connectors on the first connection body and spaced apart from the first
plurality of spaced-
apart connectors,
wherein connecting the second connector of the second connection body to the
one of
the second plurality of spaced-apart connectors on the first connection body
comprises
defining a region between the first connection body and the second connection
body to receive
the object.
15. The method of claim 14 wherein defining the region between the first
connection body
and the second connection body comprises clamping the object between the first
connection
body and the second connection body.
16. The method of claim 14 or 15 wherein the object comprises a pipe or a
pipe nipple.
17. The method of claim 14, 15, or 16 wherein defining the region between
the first
connection body and the second connection body comprises connecting the object
to a spill
container.
- 19 -

18. The method of claim 14, 15, 16, or 17 wherein the first plurality of
spaced-apart
connectors are spaced apart from each other in a first plane.
19. The method of claim 18 wherein the second plurality of spaced-apart
connectors are
spaced apart from each other in a second plane extending non-parallel to the
first plane.
20. The method of claim 19 wherein the second plane extends generally
perpendicular to
the first plane.
