Abrégé français


A hook for use with a pegboard comprising a L-shaped upper anchor attached to
the upper
portion of a vertical central body, a notch at a base portion of the upper
anchor to allow a
vertical member to flex, a U-shaped lower anchor inserted into a second hole
of the pegboard,
wherein the U-shaped lower anchor is attached to the lower portion of the
vertical central body,
the U-shaped lower anchor comprises a rigid member, a flexible member, a lever
and a plurality
of teeth aligned in a single row so that one of said teeth can cling to an
edge of the second hole

IMPROVED HOOK FOR PEGBOARD
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
1. Field of the Invention
Il] The present invention relates generally to a hook but more particularly
to an improved hook
for use with a pegboard.
2. Description of Related Art
[2] The use of hooks in pegboards is well known. Existing hooks of the
prior art are made from
metal rods, and the hooks allow tools and other objects to be stored on a flat
surface, such as wall.
However, the hooks of the prior art have several disadvantages. Due to their
shape and connection
with holes of a pegboard, the hooks are easily dislodged from the holes when
aceidentally bumped into.
Specifically, any upward motion on a hook will dislodge it from a pegboard.
Further, when a user
attempts to retrieve a hanging object or tool from a hook on a pegboard, the
act of retrieving the object
often dislodges the hook from the pegboard, frustrating the user, and even
causing damage to the object
or hook, and possibly injury to the user. Consequently, an improved hook for
use with a pegboard is
needed.

pegboard is provided,
comprising a vertical central body having a flat back side, a front side, an
upper portion, central
portion, and a lower portion; a L-shaped upper anchor configured to be
inserted into a first hole of the
pegboard, wherein the L-shaped upper anchor is attached to the upper portion
of the vertical central
body; a U-shaped lower anchor configured to be inserted into a second hole of
the pegboard, wherein
the U-shaped lower anchor is attached to the lower portion of the vertical
central body; and, a
horizontal rod for hanging objects, wherein the horizontal rod is attached to
the front side of vertical
central body approximate to the central portion.
141 In one embodiment, the flat back side is configured to be flush with
the pegboard during use. In
one embodiment, a reinforcement rib positioned between a lower side of the
horizontal rod and the
front side of the vertical central body is provided for support. In another
embodiment, a wing attached
to each side of the vertical central body approximate to the central portion
is provided. In one
embodiment, the horizontal rod includes a raised end configured to help secure
a hanged object on the
horizontal rod. In one embodiment, the L-shaped upper anchor consists
essentially of a horizontal
member, a vertical member, and a notch, wherein the notch is configured to
accommodate varying
pegboard thicknesses. In one embodiment, the U-shaped lower anchor comprises a
rigid member, a
flexible member, a plurality of teeth, and a lever. In yet another embodiment,
a tooth of the plurality of
teeth is configured to cling to an edge of the second hole of the pegboard. In
one embodiment, the

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
CA 2998947 2019-05-15

Pl] The
following description is provided to enable any person skilled in the art to
make and use the
invention and sets forth the best modes contemplated by the inventor of
carrying out his invention.
Various modifications, however, will remain readily apparent to those skilled
in the art, since the
general principles of the present invention have been defined herein to
specifically provide an
improved hook for use with a pegboard.
1121 FIG. 1 is a side view of an improved hook 10 for use with a pegboard 22
according to an
embodiment of the present invention. Referring now to FIG. 1, the hook
comprises an upper anchor
12, a vertical central body 14, and a lower anchor 18. The hook further
comprises a horizontal rod 16
configured to hang tools and objects as well known in the art. In one
embodiment, the horizontal rod
includes a raised end 42 to help retain the tools and objects on the
horizontal rod. In one embodiment,
the horizontal rod is cylindrical, however it is understood that other shapes
may be used. In one
embodiment, the hook occupies three vertically aligned holes on the pegboard,
utilizing the first and
third hole. Specifically, the hook secures to the pegboard utilizing holes 20
and 20' and the upper and
lower anchor respectively. The upper and lower anchor will be described in
greater detail below.
113] In one embodiment, the vertical central body has a flat back side 34
configured to be flush
against the pegboard during use. In one embodiment, the vertical central body
has a rounded front
side 36 that is configured to accept the horizontal rod approximate to a
central portion 40 of the
vertical central body. A reinforcement rib 26 is provided between a lower side
36 of the horizontal
rod and the front side of the vertical central body for support. Similarly, a
wing 24 is provided on
each side of the vertical central body approximate to the central portion
providing stability against the
pegboard during use by increasing the lateral surface area touching the
pegboard.

[14] FIGS. 2A-B are views of the upper anchor according to an embodiment of
the present
invention. Referring now to FIGS. 2A-B, upper anchor 12 is illustrated. The
upper anchor is
constructed of an L-shape having a horizontal member 44 and a vertical member
46. ln one
embodiment, the upper anchor comprises a notch 13 allowing the upper anchor to
accommodate
varying pegboard thicknesses. In one embodiment, the notch is between the
horizontal and the
vertical member. The horizontal member is attached perpendicularly to an upper
portion 41 of the flat
back side of the vertical central body.
[15] FIGS. 3A-B are views of the lower anchor according to an embodiment of
the present
invention. Referring now to FIGS. 3A-B, lower anchor 18 is illustrated. The
lower anchor is
constructed of a U-shape having a rigid member 31 and a flexible member 32.
The lower anchor is
attached to a lower portion 43 of the flat back side of the vertical central
body. ln one embodiment,
the flexible member includes a plurality of teeth 28 configured to accommodate
different thicknesses
of pegboards. Specifically, the plurality of teeth is shaped to cling onto an
edge of a pegboard hole. It
is a particular advantage of the present invention, that the lower anchor is
configured to prevent
unintentional release of the hook during use. In one embodiment, the flexible
member includes a
lever 30 configured to disengage the plurality of teeth from the pegboard hole
allowing the removal of
the hook.
[16] During use, the upper anchor is inserted into first hole 20 of the
pegboard. Next, the lower
anchor is inserted into second hole 20' until a tooth of the plurality of
teeth catches the edge of the
second hole, securing the lower anchor to the pegboard. The upper member of
the upper anchor
presses against the backside of the pegboard during use providing additional
securement. The lever is
accessible on the front side of the pegboard as illustrated in FIG. 1 for
removal as previously described.
