Title: Regarding the small details of my invention
Post by: Sethrich0075 on October 03, 2017, 09:58:01 AM
I have a quesition regarding the small details of my invention. So i have decided to go with a certain method of attaching a light to my invention, it needs to be a quick detach/attach method. If this is not the best way due to manufacturing purposes, can i change it later or rather submit another PPA. I dont know of many more ways to attach the light but im sure there are many different methods of attaching it.
Is it going to be problematic down the road if i dont figure out which method is best now and put it in my ppa?
Im hoing as long as i show that it needs to be a quick or easily changeable light that I will still have full coverage in the ppa.

I would describe the attachment method generically such as "the light is removably coupled to the XXXXX"  or something like that. 

If it turns out later that the way you attach the light is crucial - you would need to update and file a new application explaining how the attachment works.
