Abstract: A wind deflector for a vehicle roof comprises a flexible deflecting element attached between a base element and a raising device. The base element is mountable on a vehicle roof, and the raising device is pivotably connected to the base element to raise and lower the deflecting element. The deflecting element is air-permeable to allow air to flow through it and is flexible enough to be folded when the raising device is lowered. A resilient member biases the raising device in the raised position, stabilizing the flexible deflecting element and holding it taut enough to counteract pressure variations in a vehicle interior near a roof opening.

Abstract: An ink cartridge in which on one surface of a cartridge case, there are provided a positioning means used in case that the ink cartridge is attached to a recording apparatus, an ink outlet port from an ink pack, an inlet port of the pressurized air and a connection terminal of a circuit board having a data storage means that stores ink information of the cartridge therein, and an ink jet recording apparatus provided with its ink cartridge are provided. According to the ink cartridge of this mode, since the cartridge is exactly positioned and fixed to a holder three-dimentionally by the positioning means, mechanical positional adjustment and electrical connection can be exactly performed, so that operation reliability of the recording apparatus can be improved. Further, in the recording apparatus of this mode, in a state where the cartridge has been mounted on the recording apparatus by the positioning means, the connection terminal of the board is located at the upper portion of the ink outlet port. Hereby, even if ink leaks from the ink outlet port, the connection terminal can be prevented from being stained with the ink.

Abstract: An article formed by combining a polarizing layer, and a substrate composed of a blend of polymers such that the glass transition temperature of the substrate is adjusted to the vicinity of 100° C. This permits the lens to be thermoformed at temperatures in the vicinity of 100° C., which preserves the integrity of the polarizer. The article can be used as a standalone lens or as a polarizing insert for an injection-molded lens via an injection/compression coining process that results in minimal stress in the lens.

Abstract: A mobile air duct vacuum provides an efficient method for cleaning HVAC ductwork in nearly any location. Upper and lower sections of circular cross-section are removably connected defining an air passageway. Said upper section houses 1st, 2nd and 3rd stage filters for insuring that “dirty” air passing through the system is thoroughly cleaned. Said lower section houses an air directional unit, blower wheel and motor. The motor causes the blower wheel, having spaced blades, to rotate and draw air from within the subject ductwork and through the filters thereby effectuating the cleaning. Thereafter, the clean air passes through the air directional unit into the blower wheel where it is re-directed to the surrounding environment throu
