My pruner is patented??

Barnel® Patented Two Position Lock
The vast majority of pruning work is on smaller diameter wood. Why squeeze repeatedly against the spring tension of a one-inch capacity pruner when 70% of the cuts are 1/2 inch or less? The advantage of a second locking position led Barnel® to introduce the patented Two Position Lock. Activated at the flick of the thumb, this exciting innovation enables the user to change the pruner to a smaller cutting capacity, allowing for a narrower hand spread. The resulting relief in hand strain translates into stronger cuts, hour after hour. Individuals with smaller hands find this feature invaluable.
Barnel® Patented Center Oiler Bolt
This elegant, patented innovation necessitates far less frequent oiling of the shear and eliminates the need to disassemble the tool when adding oil to the hinge. How does it work? The patented bolt contains a reservoir of oil released to the hinging mechanism gradually through tiny holes near the threads as the tool is used. When empty, the bolt can be quickly refilled by gently depressing the precision spring-loaded ball bearing valve. Use any typical household, 3-in-1, sewing machine or other oil with a narrow applicator tip. Barnel® B-Oil shares the excellent lubricating properties of these common lubricants, and is biodegradable, non-toxic, non-hazardous, and comes in the appropriate narrow tip applicator.
