Description

PATTERSON GEORGE FEENEY, OF SANFORD, MAINE.

PUZZLE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 30, 1912.

Application filed October 3, 1911. Serial No. 652,498.

To all 'whom t may concern.'

Be it known that I, PATTERSON GEORGE FEENEY, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Sanford, in the county of York and State of Maine, have invented a new and Improved Puzzle, of which the followl ing is a full, clear, and exact description.

The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved puzzle, which is simple and durable in construction, cheap to manufacture and arranged to afford amusement and to require considerable skill in solving the puzzle.

For the purpose mentioned, use is made of a ring and sectional figure having a body with integral outstretched arms and spread legs rigidly connected with each other and pivoted to the lower end of the said body, the inside diameter of the ring being larger than the width of the said body and less than the width of the said legs, and the outside diameter of the ring being less than the distance between the spread arms.

A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a part of this speciication, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.

Figure l is a plan View of the puzzle; Figs. 2 and 3 are similar views of the same with the parts in successive positions for the removal of the ring from the figure; and Fig. 4 is a cross section of the puzzle on the line 4 4 of Fig. l.

The puzzle consists essentially Of a ring A and a figure B arranged in such a manner that it is diiiicult to engage the ring A with the body C of the figure or disengage the same therefrom.

For the purpose mentioned, the body C of the igure B is provided with a head D having sidewise-extending ears E, and the body C is also provided with sidewise-eXtending outstretched arms F, and on the lower end of the body C are pivoted legs G, G, stretched out sidewise and rigidly connected with each other, the legs at the junction being connected with the body C by a pivot H, to allow of swinging the connected legs up and down. The ring as well as the figure B are preferably made of sheet metal or other sheet material, and the parts are so proportioned that the inside diameter of the ring A is larger than the width of the body C, and the inside of the diameter of the ring A is less than the width of the outstretched legs G, G', so that the ring can4 not be passed over both legs at a time. The outside diameter of the ring A is less than the distance between the outstretched arms F to prevent the ring from being'slipped upwardly on the body C and over the figure B. Now when the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 1 the ring A is held against removal from the ligure B unless the parts are manipulated in the following manner: The legs G and G are swung upward into the position shown in Fig. 2, so that the leg G is in alinementwith the body C and the head D, and on pushing the ring A upward the upper inner end thereof is free to pass the sole of the foot of the leg G, as will be readily understood by reference to Fig. 2. The ring can thus be passed to the outside of the leg G and on now turning the legs G, G downward t-he ring A can be readily slipped over the leg G, as indicated in Fig. 3.

In placing the ring A in position on the figure B with the body C passing through the opening of the ring, the above described operation is reversed, that is, the ring A is first placed on the leg G, as shown in Fig. 8, then the legs G, G are swung upward to the position shown in Fig. 2 to permit of raising the ring and passing the same out of the leg G, after which the legs G and G are swung downwardly leaving the ring on the body C, as shown in Fig. l. The ears E on the head D are spread a considerable distance sidewise so as to prevent the ring from being passed over the said ears when the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 2.

The puzzle shown and described is very cheaply manufactured and ai'ords considerable amusement to the user, who has to eX- ercise skill to properly place the ring in position on the ligure or remove it therefrom as above explained.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:

l. A puzzle, comprising a ring and a sectional figurev having a body with integral outstretched arms and rigid spaced legs pivoted on the lower end of the said body, the inside diameter of the said ring being larger than the width of the said body and less than the width of the said legs and the outside diameter of the said ring being less than the distance between the outstretched arms.

2. A puzzle, comprising a iiat ring and a said ring being less than the distance between the outstretched arms.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name t-o this specicution in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

PATTERSON GEORGE FEENEY.

flat sectional figure representing a person and having a body, integral head, and arms stretched out sidewise and rigid with the said body, a pair of rigidly connected legs stretched out sidewise, and a pivot connecting the junction of the legs with the lower end of the said body, the inside diameter of the said ring being larger tha-n the width of the said body and less than t-he width of the' seid legs, and the outside diameter of the Witnesses:

JOHN V. TUCKER, HERBERT W. FEENEY.
