(under subclass 600) Grooming device that is immobile relative to the earth during use.
(1) Note. The device of this subclass usually allows an animal to groom itself; e.g., by rubbing against the device.
(2) Note. A toothed member intended to bite into the coat of a passing animal to drive other structure on a "rub-block is not considered to be a grooming device, since it does not align the hairs of the animal.
