Clip with corresponding clip housing
WO 2004078523 A3
Abstract
A clip with dual attachment flanges that is easily attachable, removable and re-attachable to and from a vehicle, such as an automobile, boat, snowmobile, or other similar structure. The clip comprises a base (2), whereby a male member (4) projects perpendicularly from the base on one side of the base substantially from a leg member of the base, first and second legs (6, 7) project from a cross-member substantially in the same plane as the base, the first and second legs projecting from the cross-member on opposite ends of the cross-member, and attachment flanges at the outermost ends of each of the first and second legs. A corresponding clip housing (10) attached to a trim part is provided with flange receipt channels (11, 12) that receive the flanges of the first and second legs to secure the trim part to the clip.
