1 Claim. (Cl. 24-20513)
This invention relates to scoops of separable fastener
diamond-shaped coupling head 18, inwardly of which are
the opposed recesses 19 receiving the heads 18 of ad
jacent stringers, as will be apparent from a considera
tion of FIGS. 4, 5 and 6 of the drawing.
Inner side surfaces of the heads 18 are flat or of
what may be termed a Zero angle, as indicated at 20
to establish a positive coupling engagement between
coupled scoops, as will appear from the engagement at
stringers, preferably formed of plastics, such as Deirin. 10 20' in FIG. 5 of the drawing. At this time, it is pointed
