    • Patent Number:
      11117,243
    • Appl. No:
      16/501560
    • Application Filed:
      May 01, 2019
    • Abstract:
      A multi-tool for disrupter breech maintenance includes an elongate body having a first axial end and a second axial end. The elongate body encases a storage volume commencing at and accessible from the second axial end. An open-ended rectangular notch in a radial wall of the elongate body has a planar base. A hole extends radially through the elongate body with the hole originating in the notch's planar base and having a longitudinal axis perpendicular to the planar base. A rectangular well in the radial wall of the elongate body is provided adjacent to the rectangular notch. A first hexagonal socket is coupled to the first axial end of the elongate body. A second hexagonal socket is provided for attachment to the second axial end of the elongate body.

    • Claim:
      1. A multi-tool for disrupter breech maintenance, comprising: an elongate body including a first axial end and a second axial end, said elongate body encases a storage volume commencing at and accessible from said second axial end; an open-ended rectangular notch being in a radial wall of said elongate body, said rectangular notch includes a planar base; a hole extending radially through said elongate body, said hole originates in said planar base, said hole includes a longitudinal axis perpendicular to said planar base; a rectangular well in said radial wall of said elongate body being adjacent to said rectangular notch; a first hexagonal socket being coupled to said first axial end of said elongate body; and a second hexagonal socket being configured for attachment to said second axial end of said elongate body.
    • Claim:
      2. The multi-tool as in claim 1 , wherein said hole exits elongate body in radial opposition to said planar base at a depression in said elongate body.
    • Claim:
      3. The multi-tool as in claim 1 , wherein a radial cross-section of a portion of said elongate body has a hexagonal perimeter.
    • Claim:
      4. The multi-tool as in claim 1 , wherein said second hexagonal socket is in threaded engagement with said second axial end of said elongate body.
    • Claim:
      5. The multi-tool as in claim 1 , wherein said elongate body comprises a one-piece construction.
    • Claim:
      6. The multi-tool as in claim 1 , wherein said hole is centered in said planar base.
    • Claim:
      7. A multi-tool for disrupter breech maintenance, comprising: a one-piece elongate body including a first axial end and a second axial end, said first axial end terminates in a first hexagonal socket, said second axial end terminates in an opening to provide access to a storage volume encased by said elongate body; an open-ended rectangular notch being in a radial wall of said elongate body, said rectangular notch includes a planar base; a hole extending radially through said elongate body, said hole originates in said planar base, said hole includes a longitudinal axis perpendicular to said planar base; a rectangular well in said radial wall of said elongate body being adjacent to said rectangular notch; and a second hexagonal socket being configured for attachment to said second axial end of said elongate body, wherein said opening is sealed by said second hexagonal socket.
    • Claim:
      8. The multi-tool as in claim 7 , wherein said hole exits elongate body in radial opposition to said planar base at a depression in said elongate body.
    • Claim:
      9. The multi-tool as in claim 7 , wherein a radial cross-section of a portion of said elongate body has a hexagonal perimeter.
    • Claim:
      10. The multi-tool as in claim 7 , wherein said second hexagonal socket is in threaded engagement with said second axial end of said elongate body.
    • Claim:
      11. The multi-tool as in claim 7 , wherein said hole is centered in said planar base.
    • Claim:
      12. A multi-tool for disrupter breech maintenance, comprising: an elongate body including a first axial end and a second axial end, said elongate body encases a storage volume commencing at and accessible from said second axial end; an open-ended rectangular notch being in a radial wall of said elongate body, said rectangular notch includes a planar base; a hole extending radially through said elongate body, said hole originates in said planar base, said hole exits elongate body in radial opposition to said planar base at a depression in said elongate body, said hole includes a longitudinal axis perpendicular to said planar base; a rectangular well in said radial wall of said elongate body being adjacent to said rectangular notch; a first hexagonal socket being coupled to said first axial end of said elongate body; and a second hexagonal socket being in threaded engagement with said second axial end of said elongate body.
    • Claim:
      13. The multi-tool as in claim 12 , wherein a radial cross-section of a portion of said elongate body has a hexagonal perimeter.
    • Claim:
      14. The multi-tool as in claim 12 , wherein said elongate body comprises one-piece construction.
    • Claim:
      15. The multi-tool as in claim 12 , wherein said hole is centered in said planar base.
