News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "a) Field of the Invention
"The present invention relates to a lamp holder fixture, and more particularly to a lamp holder fixture which improves a fixing effect to the lamp holder and increases convenience in fixing the lamp holder.
"b) Description of the Prior Art
"An early fluorescent lamp tube is mostly made of glass and contains small amount of mercury. Therefore, one should be very careful when taking or installing the fluorescent lamp tube; if the fluorescent lamp tube is broken accidentally, the mercury will flow out and damage the environment. In addition, if a person touches or adsorbs the mercury by accident, then he or she may be poisoned. On the other hand, although a conventional fluorescent lamp is cheaper, its wastes can result in mercury pollution or the fluorescent lamp can be fragile.
"For a new generation of the fluorescent lamp, an LED (Light Emitting Diode) is used to give out light, but the structure is still the same as the early design of the fluorescent lamp, so as to be used in an early lamp bracket.
"Referring to FIG. 1, an ordinary LED light tube is assembled from a lamp housing 11, an LED element 12 and two plugs 13, wherein the lamp housing 11 is a tubular structure formed by latching a long strip of housing base 14 with a long strip of diffuser 15. Furthermore, the lamp housing 11 is provided with a holding space 18 to emplace a substrate 17 of the LED element 12 and the plugs 13 are fixed respectively at one end of the housing base 14 with screws 19. Nevertheless, it requires a tool to dismantle or lock the LED light tube if the screws 19 are used for fixing."
As a supplement to the background information on this patent application, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "Accordingly, the primary object of the present invention is to provide a lamp holder fixture to improve a fixing effect to the lamp holder and to increase convenience in fixing the lamp holder.
"To achieve the abovementioned object, the lamp holders are positioned respectively at one tail end of a lamp tube by the fixtures, wherein at least a through-hole is disposed near a tail end of the lamp tube and the lamp holder is formed with a positioning hole corresponding to the through-hole; whereas, the fixture is provided with two elastic arms and an abut portion that connects the two elastic arms, with that a latch portion is formed at a tail end of the elastic arm.
"The latch portion is transfixed into the through-hole and the positioning hole orderly to sheath the lamp holder at the lamp tube, thereby improving the fixing effect to the lamp holder and increasing the convenience in fixing the lamp holder.
"By the abovementioned primary characteristics of structures, the said lamp tube is provided primarily with a housing base, a diffuser and a light source module. The housing base is a structure with a roughly semi-circular cross section and an interior of the housing base, opposite to the semi-circle, is formed with a holding space in a shape of a saddle. A bottom of the holding space is provided with a fixing portion and each through-hole is located above the fixing portion. The diffuser is covered with an opening of the holding space of the housing base; whereas, the light source module is provided with a circuit board and plural light emitting elements disposed on the circuit board. In addition, the circuit board can be positioned on the fixing portion of the housing base by the abut portion.
"By the abovementioned primary characteristics of structures, heat conductive adhesive can be added between the fixing portion and the circuit board of the said housing base.
"By the abovementioned primary characteristics of structures, the said lamp holder is provided with two electric terminals and an interior side of the lamp holder is provided with a conductive terminal. The conductive terminal and the electric terminals are connected together, and two ends of the circuit board of the light source module are provided respectively with one connecting seat. The connecting seat is provided with a casing and the casing is provided at least with a slot. An interior of the slot is provided with a terminal and a conductive sheet that is connected with the terminal. The conductive sheet is also extended to a side of the casing to connect the circuit board electrically; whereas, each slot provides for insertion with the conductive terminal of the lamp holder to form conduction.
"By the abovementioned primary characteristics of structures, an exterior side of the said housing base, opposite to the semi-circle, is provided with plural cooling fins.
"To enable a further understanding of the said objectives and the technological methods of the invention herein, the brief description of the drawings below is followed by the detailed description of the preferred embodiments.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
"FIG. 1 shows an exploded view of a conventional lamp holder and lamp tube.
"FIG. 2 shows a three-dimensional view of a lamp holder and a lamp tube, according to the present invention.
"FIG. 3 shows an exploded view of the lamp holder and the lamp tube, according to the present invention.
"FIG. 4 shows a three-dimensional view of a fixture and a circuit board, according to the present invention."
