Renner Kenner has obtained thousands of patents over the years for our clients. The "This Week in Our History...” section below is an example of a patent that was written and/or prosecuted by Renner Kenner.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Pat. No. 4,094,482, entitled “Deck Mount for Fishing Motor,” on June 13, 1978 to Shakespeare of Arkansas, Inc. Prior devices for mounting fishing motors on a boat deck required expensive and complicated linkages for moving the motor tube between the operating and the stowed positions, and some devices had no means for positively locking the motor in one position or the other.
