Abstract

This mechanism enables two materials x and y to be screwed or bolted together, but then can be pushed apart or pulled back together. The Bolt/Screw The two parts are similarly threaded externally, and the outer casing ‘B’ is free to rotate around part ‘A’. By screwing ‘A’ and ‘B’ together until joints are matched (materials and bolt), the materials are locked together.
