The use of retracting power cord
assemblies is known in the prior art. More specifically, retracting power cord assemblies heretofore devised and utilized are known to consist basically of familiar, expected and obvious structural configurations, notwithstanding the myriad of designs encompassed by the crowded prior art which have been developed for the fulfillment of countless objectives and requirements.
The general purpose of the present invention, which will be described subsequently in greater detail, is to provide a new power cord dispensing system apparatus and method which has many of the advantages of the retracting power cord assemblies mentioned heretofore and many novel features that result in a new power cord dispensing system which is not anticipated, rendered obvious, suggested, or even implied by any of the prior art retracting power cord assemblies, either alone or in any combination thereof.
Still yet another object of the present invention is to provide a new power cord dispensing system which provides in the apparatuses and methods of the prior art some of the advantages thereof, while simultaneously overcoming some of the disadvantages normally associated therewith.
Still another object of the present invention is to provide a new power cord dispensing system for allowing the convenient use of electrical appliances such as garden appliances and electric vehicles while reducing electric shock hazards.
As such, those skilled in the art will appreciate that the conception, upon which this disclosure is based, may readily be utilized as a basis for the designing of other structures, methods and systems for carrying out the several purposes of the present invention.
Each of such brackets has a pair of countersunk bores formed therein for being screwably coupled to an inner face of a vertical recipient surface, or wall, of a home or business. For reasons that will soon become apparent, each bracket further includes a widened bottom. Next provided is an interior housing with a square configuration having a top face, a bottom face, a front face, a rear face and a pair of side faces, thereby defining an interior space.
The cord assembly has a spring associated therewith. Further, a cord of the cord assembly includes an inboard end which is coupled to the spool and further electrically connected to a power source. An outboard end of the cord has a female adapter. In use, the outboard end of the cord is situated through a bore formed in the rear face of the interior housing, an aperture formed in the vertical recipient surface, and the cut out of the exterior housing for being selectively dispensed. Lastly, a toggle switch is mounted on the top face of the housing adjacent to the rear face thereof.
Even still another object of the present invention is to provide a new power cord
dispensing system that includes a housing with a retracting spool mounted therein for selectively retracting a power cord through an opening formed in the housing.
These together with other objects of the invention, along with the various features of novelty which characterize the invention, are pointed out with particularity in the claims annexed to and forming a part of this disclosure.
