High-Speed Collision Safety Compartment
Mounting System Arrangement
Engineering Design Details
Stretch-A-Way Mounting Pad
As shown in the above clip from the 3D Models is the Engineering Simplicity of this Transportation Vehicle Occupant Safety Cage Mounting Arrangement's Design.
In the clip on the left is my simply elegant solution of the Tether Mount Assembly. As you can see I use a Rubber Disk for the Clutch. It is 60-65A Durometer Polymer and is Compressed to a Set Distance by the Length of the Shoulder Bolt. That in Turn gets Locked Into Position by the Three Recessed Edges of the Mounting Bracket. This then allows for High-Resistance at the Initial Moments of Impact and as the Rubber Degrades, allows for Decreasing Resistance as the Collision Event Continues and the Compartment is Slowing.
The Clutch Resistance can be Further Adjusted by changes to Composite of the Pad as well even adding opposing Concentric Ribs into the mating surface of the Cable Spool.
Also shown is the Mount for the Tether Cable. When the Set Length of Cable has been Reached, the Cable's Loop Connector is Bent in the opening of the Cable Mount Yoke creating a simple yet very effective Cable Retainer.

Safety Cage & Cradle Frame Design Details
As shown above and below in the Design & Assembly Drawings are the Separable Safety Cage & Frame Cradle with Alternate Front & Rear Frame Assemblies that can easily be Assembled with Engine and Suspension Components and as with even Electric Vehicles will only Require Low-Voltage Electrical Plug-In to the Safety Cage Assembly to be Completely Functional with No Fluids and No Mechanical Linkages for the Safest Instantaneous High-Speed Collision Occupant Safety Cage Separation to Reduce Passenger Compartment Intrusions and Lower Bodily G-Force Impacts.
It should be obvious to one of like skills in any industry just how Easy it is to Design With Modular Selections. Besides what Designer wouldn't like to pick from a Combination of Engineering Approved Modules and basically just use the stretch command to come up with such a wide range of New Vehicle Models.
Tether-A-Way Mounted Sedan
All the Collision Engineers and Medical Experts Agree that the Key to High-Speed Collision Survivability is to Increase the Duration of the Collision that will Lower G-Force on the Occupants and to Keep The Occupant Compartment Intact with Minimized Compartment Intrusions...
We hope this simplified Engineering Demonstration of this Automotive Safety Feature Mounting Arrangement will help to Expedite the Development of this High-Speed Collision Tether-A-Way Occupant Safety Cage for all our Friends' and Families' Safety When Traveling In Our Vehicles.
