|Full Text||A COVER FOR TWO WHEELERS Technical Field
This invention in relates to two wheeler covers. It particularly relates to an easy, heat, dust, rain proof cover without need for transport, carrying the same for covering the vehicle with pilfer proof lamps saving on vehicle corrosion and safety at nights for all road users.
State of Art
Existing covers are made of thick tarpauline or plastic that is difficult to spread, fold, carry, store and do not protect the vehicle at all places! So the vehicle collects the dust, rain, gets corroded, wasting life of vehicle with costly repairs. Lamps break easily, making road travel dangerous at night. Constraints in use of the existing covers are:
1. Covers cannot be transported to all places and time.
2. It is difficult to apply or fold.
3. It does not protect the vehicle at all times, as it is not inbuilt.
4. Covers are hard to clean, easily pick up dust fast.
5. Covers are not easily washable, not in attractive colours.
An extensive search of the market, vehicles, worldwide was studied. This invention is radically different from existing covers in the market with easy use and safe lights. Patent database has prior patents GB2088798 and GB2118115 .GB 2088798 claims a vehicle cover that has no flaps, but a complete cover that is pulled onto a roller by a handle fixed to a box. Rolling a 1 .Smeter wide, 2meter long fabric on a 30 cms roller needs folding and then rolling. Rolling is clumsy, may tear the fabric. 20 revolutions or more is needed. Patent GB 2118115 is again for a cover with a roller to pull the fabric, but with guides. These two patents are incomplete for tropical India. The box and cover can be easily dried by draining holes avoiding fungal growth. Rolling covers is time taking, slow, needs more effort- eliminated in ours, a simplification with a means to fix indicator lamps- a safety feature needed for our roads and Indian Laws. Even kids or women can cover the vehicle, saving on corrosion costs, as there is no rolling but simple store in box with safe lamps avoiding night accidents.
Accordingly, it is the object of the inventor is to invent a cover that is radically different in parts, construction and use.
Another object of the invention is to invent a cover that will be used longer, saving on corrosion costs with a set of lamps that will be difficult to vandaUze.
The new cover comprises of a cover proper that is heat, dust, rain proof, easily washable, foldable made of natural or treated fabric. The cover is spread to cover from front to back including its appendages. The cover is made as a main flap with two side flaps that is easily foldable and jQxed to the inside of a box provided with a lock-bearing lid! The outside of the box has the number plate, side indicating lamps as needed. The box is fixed to front or back of vehicle as needed forming a pilfer proof cover with elegance, easy use, good looks. The cover is spread out of box or folded to store simply. As it is easy to wash, looks clean! The cover will eliminate need for covered parking places too! Statement of Drawings
The objects and features of the invention will become apparent after perusal of the following description, taken in conjunction with accompanying diagrams where in: Fig. 1. Shows the easy cover spread on vehicle with the box and lamps. Fig. 2. shows the parts of the cover. Fig.3. shows parts of box with lamps. Fig.4. shows a modification with the box at front.
