DEVICE FOR HOLDING VINE-SUPPORTS.
Application filed JuIy 8, 1912.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, IRA J. GREEN, citizen of the United States, residing at I-Ioskins, in the county of Benton and State of Oregon, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Devices for Holding Vine- Supports, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a device for hold ing a vine support, such for instance, as a wire, at a proper elevation along a support-- ing post in order that the berries or fruit of the vine may be easily gathered without requiring the person gathering the same to stoop or reach up to any considerable extent.
With this object in view, the device consists of two sections of wire twisted together, the said sections being pointed at their ends. The lower ends of the sections are disposed away from each other, and the upper ends of the sections are bent in toward each other. One of the wire sections is provided with a fold which constitutes a supporting shoulder for the wire or cord that supports the vine.
The device is adapted to be applied to a supporting post so that the vine may be extended at a desired elevation.
For a full understanding of the invention, reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings in which:
Figure l is a perspective view showing the vine support applied; Fig. 2 is a similar View of the support detached; Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the support applied.
Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the accompanying drawings by the same reference characters.
As illustrated in the accompanying drawing the device consists of wire sections 1 and 2. These sections are twisted upon each other as at 8, and the section 1 is provided at a point between the ends of the twist 3 with a fold A which forms a shoulder extending out from the said twisted part. Below the twist 3 the ends of the sections 1 and 2 are comparatively short and diverge Specification of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 708,377.
from each other, as at 5. Above the upper end of the'twist 3, the end portions of the wire sections 1 and 2 are comparatively long and are curved first away from each other, with their extremities pointing in toward each other, as at 6. The sections 1 and 2 are pointed at both of their ends.
To apply the device to a post the upper pointed ends of the sections 1 and 2 are engaged with the post at one side portion thereof so that the post lies between the upper portions of the sections 1 and 2. The lower pointed ends of the sections 1 and 2 bear against the opposite side portion of the post. The line wire 7 which carries the vine is engaged over the fold 4t, and thus the wire 7 is supported at a desired elevation upon the post. This renders it easy for one to gather the berries or fruit from the vine without stooping or reaching up to any considerable extent.
Having described my invention, what is claimed as new is:
1. A device for supporting a wire upon a post or similar support comprising sections twisted upon each other and having pointed ends engageable with the post, the pointed ends at one end of the device being disposed away from each other and the pointed ends at the other ends of the device being disposed toward each other, said device being provided with a shoulder located at a point between its ends.
2. A device for supporting wire upon a post or similar support comprising sections connected intermediate their ends, one terminal of each section being curved to embrace the post and provided with a prong, the terminals of said sections remote from their curved terminals diverging from the intermediate portion and being disposed to extend within the post, one of the members being formed with a wire supporting extension.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
