"UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

ARTHUR L. COOK, OF NORTH HEATH, MASSACHUSETTS.

CROSS-LINE BUCKLE.

To all whom it may concern.

Be it known that I, ARTHUR L. COOK, citizen of the United States, residing at North Heath, in the county of Franklin and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cross-Line Buckles, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to cross line buckles and has for its object the provision of a comparatively simple and thoroughly efiicient device of this character, the tongue of which may be quickly removed from the buckle frame so as to permit the ready attachment of a cross line to or the detachment of said cross line from the buckle frame without disturbing the main or line strap.

A further object is to provide a cross line buckle including a frame having oppositely disposed ears provided with transversely alined bearings for the reception of the tongue supporting bar, there being slots formed in the ears and communicating wit-h the bearings to permit the removal and replacement of said tongue supporting bar.

A still further object of the invention is generally to improve this class of devices so as to increase their utility, durability and efliciency, as well as to reduce the cost of manufacture.

Further objects and advantages will appear in the following description, it being understood that various changes in form, proportions and minor details of construction may be resorted to within the scope of the appended claims.

For a full understanding of the invention and the merits thereof, reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a cross line buckle constructed in accordance with the present invention; Fig. 2 is a top plan view, showing in dotted lines the tongue supporting bar shifted laterally within the bearings of the buckle frame so as to permit the tongue to clear the lip on said frame when detaching the cross line; Fig. 8 is a longitudinal sectional view of Fig. 1; Fig. 4 is a similar view, showing the manner of releasing the tongue supporting bar; Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the cross bar and tongue detached; Fig. 6 is a plan view of the blank from which the body of the buckle is constructed.

Corresponding and like parts are referred Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed July 13, 1911.

Patented Apr. 30, 1912.

Serial No. 638,360.

to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the drawing by the same reference characters.

The improved cross line buckle forming the subject matter of the present invention comprises an elongated frame, preferably stamped or otherwise formed of a single sheet of metal and comprising spaced vertical side bars 5 connected by transverse horizontally disposed end bars 6 and 7. The intermediate portions of the side bars 5 are provided with depending enlargements or ears 8 having elongated recesses 9 formed therein and constituting bearings for a tongue supporting bar, indicated at 10. The bar 10 is provided with a rigid tongue 11, the free end of which is adapted to normally rest on the upper surface of the end bar 6, the bar 10 being also provided with a rearwardly extending shank 12 having an opening formed therein to permit the passage of a rivet or similar fastening device 13 by means of which a cross line, indicated at 14, may be permanently secured thereto, the main or line strap 15 being threaded through the buckle frame, as shown. The opposite ends of the bar 10 are reduced to form contracted necks 16 defining terminal heads 17 adapted to bear against the exterior walls of the ears 8, and thus prevent lateral displacement of said bar. Communicating with the bearings 9, are downwardly inclined slots 18 which permit the insertion or removal of the bar 10 when the latter is rotated so as to present the flat faces 19 of the bar to said slots.

The cross bar 7 of the buckle frame is provided with an inwardly extending guard lip 20 defining spaced recesses 21 to permit the passage of the free end of the tongue 11 when the latter is swung rearwardly and downwardly with the bar 10 as a pivot to permit the release of said bar from the bearings 9, there being sufficient lateral play of the bar 10 within the bearings 9 to allow the free end of the tongue to clear the guard lip 20 and register with either recess 21 when said tongue is swung rearwardly to effect the release of thecross line from the buckle frame. It will thus be seen that when the tongue is normally swung rearwardly on the buckle frame, the guard lip, by engagement with the free end of the tongue, serves to prevent removal of the bar 10 from the recesses or bearings 9, it being necessary to first tilt the bar and tongue laterally until the free end of the tongue registers with either recess 21 before the bar 10 can be removed through the recesses 9 and the cross line detached from said buckle frame.

It will here be noted that when the free end of the tongue is in engagement with the upper surface of the transverse bar 6, the curved "edges of the bar 10, at the reduced necks 16 thereof, will engage against the walls of the bearing 9 so to prevent withdrawal of the cross bar from said hear ing, the free end of the tongue 11, by engagement with the cross bar (5, also serving to assist in prei 'enting withdrawal of said cross bar. lVhen, however, the free end of the tongue 11 is swung laterally and downwardly, the bar 10 will be rotated so as to present the flat faces 19 of said bar to the walls of the slots 18, and in which position the cross bar may be readily withdrawn through said slots and thus permit detachment of the cross line.

The buckle is preferably constructed from a metallic blank of the general shape and configuration shown in Fig. 6 of the drawing, said blank being subsequently bent on the fold lines 22 to produce the side walls 5 and depending ears 6, after which the bar carrying the tongue 11 is inserted in the slots 18 and the free end of said tongue passed through the openings in the main line or strap 15 so that the main line and cross line will be securely held in assembled position. The buckles may be made in different sizes and shapes and nickeled, japanned or otherwise coated to give the same a neat attractive appearance.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

1. A cross line buckle including a frame having spaced vertical side bars connected by horizontal end bars, one of which is provided with an inwardly extending guard lip defining spaced recesses, there being ears depending from the side bars and provided with transversely alined bearings having inclined slots communicating therewith, a cross bar journaled in said bearings and having its opposite. ends reduced to form rozaeeo terminal heads bearing against the outer faces of the ears, and a tongue rigidly secured to the cross bar and adapted when swung rearwardly normally to engage the guard lip, the free end of said tongue being movable laterally on either side of the guard lip and downwardly through either recess to permit the removal of the tongue supporting bar through the slots in the ears.

A cross line buckle including a frame having spaced. vertical side bars connected by horizontal end bars, said side bars having their intermediate portions provided with depending ears having transversely alined elongated bearings formed therein and provided with inclined slots communicating with the bearings, one of the end bars of the frame being formed with an inwardly extending guard lip defining spaced recesses, a cross bar having its opposite ends reduced and journaled in the bearings, and a tongue rigidly secured to the cross bar and adapted when swung rearwardly normally to engage the guard lip, said cross bar being movable longitudinally within said bearings so as to permit the free end of the tongue to clear the guard lip and register with either recess when said tongue is swung rearwardly and downwardly to permit the release of the cross bar through the slots in said ears.

3. A blank for cross line buckles including a flat metallic body portion having its opposite longitudinal edges extended laterally to form enlargements pierced by openings constituting bearings, there being slots formed in the enlargements and communicating with said openings, and a slot formed in the center of the blank and defining oppositely disposed end bars, the inner edge of the metal constituting one of the end bars being cut-away to form an inwardly extending lip defining spaced re cesses.

In testimony whereof, I attix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
