Abstract:     The removable two-way connector is designed for faucets with a nozzle for feeding auxiliary apparatus, such as shower heads, massage devices and the like. It comprises a body with an annular wall divided into four segments and defining a cavity in which a deformable packing sleeve is disposed. The wall has a peripheral wall forming a spiral camming face at each wall segment. A rotary cover caps the cavity and has radially inwardly extending ribs with cam follower faces engaging the spiral camming faces. When the cover is turned, the wall segments are forced radially inwardly by the displacement of the cover ribs along the camming faces whereby the inwardly forced wall segments are pressed against the adjacent deformable sleeve and the sleeve sealingly engages a nozzle surrounded thereby.

Show all 7 claims
What is claimed is:     1. A removable two-way connector for a faucet nozzle, which comprises
  • (a) a body having a generally annular wall divided into a plurality of segments by gaps defined between the segments, the annular wall defining a cavity in the body and including a peripheral flange, the flange bring configurated to form a spiral camming face at each wall segment,
  • (b) a deformable packing sleeve disposed in the cavity adjacent the generally annular wall, and
  • (c) a rotary cover mounted on the body and capping the cavity, the cover having radially inwardly extending ribs having cam follower faces arranged to engage the spiral camming faces, the body wall and cover being arranged to cooperate to force the wall segments radially inwardly upon rotation of the cover in relation to the body and corresponding displacement of the cover ribs along the spiral camming faces whereby the inwardly forced wall segments are pressed against the deformable packing sleeve and the sleeve sealingly engages a nozzle surrounded by the sleeve.
