DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS

In order to solve the problem mentioned in the Background section above, the present disclosure provides, among other things, a detachable rod-like decorative lighting, which is well ornamental and flexibly used.

Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, an embodiment of a detachable rod-like decorative lighting according to the present disclosure, comprises a rod and a fancy lamp 1 (i.e. a lamp in customized shape or appearance) detachably connected to the top of the rod, wherein the rod comprises an outer pipe 2 and an inner shell 3 adapted to locate inside the outer pipe 2 for housing one or more electronic components, one or more batteries, wires, one or more light sources, etc. The outer pipe 2 is a single body (or referred as one-piece body) without any joint or seam extended along the outer pipe 2 in axial direction, thus it cannot be took apart along an axial seam or gap, and thus the inner shell 3 can only be mounted into the outer pipe 2 from an end opening provided on one or both ends of the outer pipe 2. The inner shell 3 is a member assembled from multiple parts, wherein the inner shell 3 has a shape corresponding to the outer pipe 2. The inner shell 3 is provided at the top thereof with a coaxial hole 31 and a connecting socket correspondingly inside the coaxial hole 31. The fancy lamp 1 is provided at the bottom thereof with a plug 11 connected to the top of the outer pipe 2 by insertion. The plug 11 is provided with a coaxial column 12 matching with the coaxial hole 31, wherein the coaxial column 12 may be or comprises an electrical connector for electric connection. The outer pipe 2 is provided at the top and the bottom thereof with connecting structures, respectively, for quickly matching and engaging with the fancy lamp 1 and the inner shell 3. The connecting structures can be a form of locking or clamping connection, for example, a cooperative connection of a hook and a slot, or can be a fastener connection, for example a threaded connection. The fancy lamp 1 can be designed with a star-like, circular or other shape, in transparent or non-transparent. Besides, the fancy lamp 1 can be provided inside thereof with one or more light sources and electrically connected to the coaxial column 12, to be connected to the one or more electronic components, the one or more batteries, etc. inside the inner shell 3 by wires, as the inner shell 3 can be quickly connected to the coaxial column 12 by the connecting socket inside the coaxial hole 31 at the top of the inner shell 3. Since the fancy lamp 1 can be designed as different styles, profiles or shapes according to different festivals or themes, the rod-like decorative lighting according to the present disclosure allows directly and quickly replacing and using of the fancy lamp 1. Meanwhile, the outer pipe 2 can be a long-tapered or cylindrical shape or other shapes, and can be decorated easily by paint spraying, transfer printing or paper pasting as the outer pipe 2 hasn't any joint or seam. Furthermore, such seamless design can effectively improve efficiency of product assembling and save time in the manufacturing process.

As shown in FIG. 1-4, connecting slots 7 are provided at an inner wall of the openings at both the top and the bottom of the outer pipe 2. The connecting slots 7 can be L-shaped, reverse T-shaped, curving or other shapes suitable for locking. In case of a L-shaped connecting slot 7, it extends first in an axial direction along the axis of the outer pipe 2 then in a circumferential direction along a radial section of the outer pipe 2. And the plug 11 is provided at outer wall thereof with a protruding block 13 to be correspondingly connected to the connecting slot 7 at the top of the outer pipe 2, by locking. In this case the fancy lamp 1 can be tightly connected to the outer pipe 2, by inserting the protruding block 13 into the connecting slot 7 and rotating the plug 11 until the protruding block 13 contacts or reach to an end of the connecting slot 7 in the circumferential direction. In the same way, the inner shell 3 is provided at the bottom thereof with a connecting block 32 (which can be fabricated as another protruding block 32) to be correspondingly connected to the connecting slot 7 at the bottom of the outer pipe 2, by locking. In this way the inner shell 3 can be tightly connected to the outer pipe 2, by axially inserting the connecting block 32 of the inner shell 3 into the connecting slot 7 and rotating the inner shell 3 until the connecting block 32 contacts or reach to an end of the connecting slot 7 in the circumferential direction, after the inner shell 3 enters into the outer pipe 2 from the bottom thereof. Thus the connection of the fancy lamp 1 and the outer pipe 2 and the connection of the inner shell 3 and the outer pipe 2 are both easily operated.

As shown in FIGS. 1, 3 and 4, the outer pipe 2 is provided at outer wall thereof with a button assembly 4, corresponding to electronic components in the inner shell 3 and corresponding to holes for housing buttons 41; and a mounting groove 23 for fixing of the button assembly 4. And the button assembly 4 is provided at the edge thereof with one or more hooks, which are correspondingly inserted into gaps at the edge of the mounting groove 23 and connected to inner wall of the outer pipe 2 by locking. The mounting groove 23 is provided with holes for housing buttons 41 of the button assembly 4, with one side of the buttons 41 tightly connected to inner side of the button assembly 4 by locking. Thus the mounting groove 23 and the button assembly 4 prevent the bottom of the buttons from interfering movement, operation or rotation of the inner shell 3 which locates closely inside the outer pipe 2. After being correctly mounted, button element(s) can be touched only if the button(s) is/are pressed.

As shown in FIG. 3, in a modified structure of another embodiment, the outer pipe 2 consists of at least two pipe portions correspondingly and integrally formed with one another by axial connection, such as an upper pipe and a lower pipe. The upper pipe of the outer pipe 2 can be transparent, semitransparent or non-transparent, and correspondingly, the inner shell 3 can be correspondingly provided at the top thereof with one or more light sources, one or more string lights or without any light source. When the inner shell 3 is provided at the top thereof with one or more string lights, they cooperate with a transparent part of the outer pipe 2 to light from the top of the inner shell 3 and emit through the upper pipe of the outer pipe 2 when being switched on, which has a gorgeous effect of simultaneously lighting with the fancy lamp 1.

As shown in FIG. 4, the inner shell 3 consists of separate portions axially connected to one another, i.e. an upper portion and a lower portion, so the upper portion thereof can be independently designed as a transparent shell in various shapes and correspondingly connected with the lower portion of the inner shell 3 to form a one-piece structure, in order to simplify manufacturing of parts. The lower portion of the inner shell 3 is provided at the upper end thereof with a shoulder correspondingly covering the lower end of the upper portion. The upper portion of the inner shell 3 is provided at the lower end thereof with a protruding connector 34 with a radial connecting hole, while the lower portion of the inner shell 3 is provided inside thereof with a connecting column passing through the connector 34 (preferably via the radial connecting hole). Furthermore, the transparent shell can be designed as a shape of a crystal shell, wherein one or more string lights or one or more light bars can be added to cooperate with the fancy lamp 1, such that the decorative lighting can be designed to has an emanative form/operable mode to produce a lighting effect like fireworks when being switched on.

As shown in FIG. 3, the upper pipe of the outer pipe 2 is provided at the bottom thereof with a shoulder 21 configured to be correspondingly fitted into an inner wall of the lower pipe of the outer pipe 2. The lower pipe of the outer pipe 2 is also provided with a connecting slot 7 used to connected to a protrusion 22 provided on the shoulder 21 by locking. Thus the connection of the upper and the lower pipes of the outer pipe 2, the connection of the fancy lamp 1 and the outer pipe 2 and the connection of the inner shell 3 and the outer pipe 2 are both quickly realized by cooperatively connection of a connecting slot 7 and a protrusion by locking. Same radial positions of each connecting slots 7 can be arranged from top to bottom of the outer pipe 2, so that positions of the connection of the fancy lamp 1 and the outer pipe 2 and the connection of the inner shell 3 and the outer pipe 2 can be easily determined.

In another embodiment of the present disclosure, as shown in FIG. 5, the rod-like decorative lighting cooperates with a remotely and electrically controlled socket 60. In this case the inner shell 3 of the rod-like decorative lighting comprises a remote controlling circuit module 50 inside the inner shell 3, a loudspeaker 51, and an opening 52 corresponding to the loudspeaker for sound passing through. When the rod-like decorative lighting is operated by pressing the buttons 41 to emit light and make sound by the loudspeaker, the remote controlling circuit module 50 in the rod-like decorative lighting can be activated simultaneously and sends remote control signals to and controls the electrically controlled socket 60 to switch on or off, thus other decorative lightings 61 (such as other larger decorative lightings) connected to the electrically controlled socket 60 are switched on or off. And the inner shell 3 can be provided inside thereof with one or more IMUs, for example an acceleration sensor 53, as an alternative or a substitution to traditional button switches (such as buttons 41), such that the switching on/off for the rod-like decorative lighting itself and/or other decorative lightings remotely controlled by the rod-like decorative lighting can be done by waving or gestures. Such operation manner can improve entertainment and enjoyment for children. Additionally, lighting modes of the rod-like decorative lighting can be configured as one or more styles, such as twinkling, gradually brighten, gradually darken, etc., as needed. The outer pipe 2 can also be configured as a straight pipe, or a pipe with streaks on an outer wall, or other shapes, or configured separately with respect to the upper and the lower pipe thereof to have differences on each section. In a similar way, the upper portion of the inner shell 3 can also be separately designed as being transparent, streaky or concavoconvex, etc. And a coaxial column and socket can be cooperatively designed as a similar structure to a DC plug and socket, or a hardware structure having the same effect.
