AN EYELET CONNECTION DEVICE AND ITS METHOD OF USE FIELD OF THE INVENTION The present invention pertains to the field of connectors and in particular to an eyelet connection device for use with a mesh screen.

BACKGROUND There are many devices, which incorporate a spiral or helical form into their design enabling a connection to be formed between two pieces of wire or similar material.

Typically these connection devices require the use of tools for installation and these devices are not readily reusable.

There are a number of attempts for enabling the formation of this type of connection in the prior art. U. S. Patent No. 1,622, 878 discloses a fastener composed of a length of wire in an extended spring formation which is used for the interconnection of round wire reinforcing strap lengths. In order for the fastener to perform its function the helical convolutions of the fastener are flattened to approximately the width of the wire strap to be passed through the coil. Wire straps must be passed through the centre of the coil using suitable tensioning tools and then the fastener is crimped about the wire straps to secure the wire straps within the fastener.

In addition, U. S. Patent No. 2,097, 641 discloses a spring fastener intended to secure trim or like material upon a supporting structure with a continuously effective yielding pressure, thus acting as a clipping device. This fastener is formed from one piece of wire, consisting of a head in the form of a letter S and a pair of holding elements that approximate a helical form and project away from the ends of the head. Upon installation of this device and its subsequent rotation through the use of additional tools, the design of the spring fastener results in the a clamping force being applied to the trim and a supporting structure, thus providing a means for holding the trim in position.

A fencing system for the creation of an animal enclosure comprising longitudinally strung fencing wire and cross stay wires joining adjacent strands of fencing wire by means of knots or coils is disclosed in U. S. Patent No. 2,148, 380. The cross stay wires are painted a contrasting colour, enabling ease of visibility of the fence wire by animals contained within the enclosure.

Each of the above examples of connectors incorporates helical or spiral formed connection components and they are typically more permanent in nature. Furthermore, installation of these connectors requires the use of additional tools to rotate, crimp or perform other actions on the connector in order for the connection to be formed. Therefore, there is a need for a reusable connection device for use with a wire type of material, which provides ease of interconnection of the material and which can be installed without the use of additional tools.

This background information is provided for the purpose of making known information believed by the applicant to be of possible relevance to the present invention. No admission is necessarily intended, nor should be construed, that any of the preceding information constitutes prior art against the present invention.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION An object of the present invention is to provide an eyelet connection device and its method of use. In accordance with an aspect of the present invention, there is provided a securing device for use with mesh screens, said securing device comprising: a length of rigid-quality material bent into a configuration presenting; a mid-section; a first end projecting away from the mid-section in an approximately helical path up to one convolution to define an eyelet connection means; a second end projecting away from the mid-section in an approximately helical path up to one convolution to define a further eyelet connection means ; wherein said rigid-quality material has a minimum cross-sectional dimension ranging from 3/16 of an inch to 1/2 of an inch, wherein said securing device is for use with mesh screens formed from strands having a minimum cross-sectional dimension ranging from 3/16 of an inch to 1/2 of an inch, and wherein the approximately helical path has a pitch which is the same or greater than the cross-sectional dimension of the strands forming said mesh screens.
