Abstract (fr)

Il est décrit une clef universelle pour serrer et desserrer des organes d'assemblage polygonaux, tels des écrous, des têtes de boulons ou des manchons tubulaires polygonaux. Cette clef universelle comprend un corps de clef pourvu d'un manche (1) et d'une tête de clef (2) destinée à venir en contact avec un organe d'assemblage (5) à serrer ou desserrer, cette tête de clef comportant un corps d'appui (20) susceptible de recevoir l'organe d'assemblage. La clef comprend en outre un organe souple en forme de ruban (3) destiné à entourer et à maintenir l'organe d'assemblage contre le corps d'appui, ainsi que des moyens de tension (4) du ruban. La tête de clef est en outre montée rotative par rapport au manche de manière à permettre un accroissement de la tension du ruban lorsqu'un mouvement de rotation est appliqué à l'organe d'assemblage et une relaxation du ruban lors d'un mouvement opposé. <IMAGE>
