My first question has to do with patent #5,580,417. I believe this patent is expired, but are there any other patents in force using the same technology?

My second question is in regards to the tensioning cap in Figure 5. Is this technology or concept expired? Is it in force in another patent? Or is it too broad to be patented.

Thank you.
