View page
US Patent:
50075322, Apr 16, 1991
Filed:
Nov 20, 1989
Appl. No.:
7/439451
Inventors:
Patrick W. Binish - Holland MI
Assignee:
Prince Corporation - Holland MI
International Classification:
B60J 302
US Classification:
296 971
Abstract:
A visor is disclosed of the type used in an automobile. The visor has a self-supporting cardboard butterfly inner support which is covered with a decorative material. The butterfly is folded to form opposing edges and a urethane adhesive is used to bind the sides of the butterfly together and to clamp the decorative material in place. The adhesive contacts the edge of the decorative material contained within the folded butterfly and fixes it firmly in place. As the urethane resin cures, it expands to form a rigid foam member which forms a stiffening member for the visor. A torque member is attached to the visor within the folded butterfly and has a member for attachment to the ceiling of an automobile. The method of making the visor is also disclosed.

Aug 29, 1997
Appl. No.:
8/920586
Inventors:
Jesse Kalkman - Holland MI
Patrick W. Binish - Holland MI
Assignee:
Prince Corporation - Holland MI
International Classification:
B60J 302
US Classification:
296 9711
Abstract:
A track visor includes a visor body with a rolling guide assembly engaged with a track extending above at least a portion of the front windshield and side window of a vehicle. The track is a curved, non-planar configuration with a pair of outer-extending rails which are parallel to each other along straight sections of the track and increase in separation distance with increased curvature of the track. The guide assembly has three rolling wheels assembled to a carriage, with two of the wheels engaged to one rail and the third wheel engaged to the opposite rail. The third wheel is assembled to a pivot arm that is spring biased for compressing the wheels against the rails of the track. The visor body is pivotally connected to the carriage and, therefore, movable above selected positions of the windshield and side door window for providing incident light blocking.

US Patent:
56952376, Dec 9, 1997
Filed:
Apr 12, 1996
Appl. No.:
8/631569
Inventors:
Brian L. Erickson - Holland MI
Patrick W. Binish - Holland MI
Kermit M. Anderson - Holland MI
Assignee:
Pince Corporation - Holland MI
International Classification:
B60J 300
US Classification:
296 971
Abstract:
A visor comprises a fiberboard butterfly-shaped core having a first or inner surface coated with a co-adhesive and has its opposite surface covered with a suitable upholstery material having an edge which extends over the periphery of the butterfly core. The core is folded over a pivot rod and torque control such that the facing adhesive surfaces adhesively engage one another to complete the visor construction. The methods of manufacturing the visor includes the steps of applying a co-adhesive to sheets of fiberboard and cutting the sheets into the butterfly shape of a desired visor configuration. The individual butterfly sheets are stacked on one another with the adhesive layers facing in the same direction, such that the adjacent butterfly cores do not adhere to one another. Subsequently, the single core members are placed on butterfly-shaped upholstery having a slightly larger dimension than that of the core. The upholstery edges are folded over the edges of the core, and a pivot rod and torque control member is positioned near the fold line of the butterfly core which defines the upper edge of the visor when completed.
