FENCE-WIRE FASTENER FOR FENCE-POSTS.
To (d/ feo/om may concern.'
ie it known that l, .lAcon Fist-nin, a citizen of the United States, residing at. Roann, in the county of lfVabash and State of lndiana, have invented a new and useful Fence-'l/Vire lf`af'stener for Fence-Posts, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to improvements in fence wire fasteners for fence posts.
The object of the present invention is to improve the construction of fence posts, more especially the means for securing fence wires or woven wire fencing to the same, and to provide a simple, inexpensive and et'- .ticient fastening means, designed particularly for use in the attaclnnent ot fence wires to a concrete post, and adapted to engage interiorly arranged nuts, and arranged to exclude the air from the interior of a concrete post at the points of attachment., whereby the life or durability of the parts will be materially incr-eased.
ldlith these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the construction and novel combination of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and pointed out in the claims hereto appended; it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion, size and minor details of construction, within the scope of the claims, may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the drawing: Figure l is an elevation of a concrete felice post provided with fastening means, constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a horizontal sectional view of the fence post. Fig. 8 is a vertical sectional view on the line 3 3 of l ig. 2. Fig. 4l is an enlarged sectional view of a portion of the upper end of the fence post, showing the top fastening device. Fig. 5 is a detail perspective vie of one of the wire receiving brackets. Fig. is a plan view ot the blank of the bracket shown in Fig. 5. Fig. 7 is a plan Vview of the blank of a slightly different, form oitl bracket. Fig. 8 is a detail view oit one of the supporting pins for embedding the nuts in the concrete post.
Like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawing.
In the accompanying drawing in which is illustrated the preferred embodiment of the Specification of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 775,609.
invention, l designates a post designed to be constructed of concrete or other plastic material and preferably reinforced adjacent to the corners by rods or bars 2 of twisted metal, preferably rectangular in cross section, as clearly illustrated in Fig. 2 of the drawing, but the post may be reinforced in any other preferred manner. During the molding of the post while the material is soft, nuts 8, which are arranged in a vertical series, are embedded in the post adjacent to and in parallelism with the front .face of the post in order te he engagedby bolts -t for securing brackets 5 of a fastener to the post. As a convenient means for enabling the nuts to be readily embedded in the soft material, a pin (5 of a diameter slightly greater than that of the bolt is provided. lhe inner end portion 7 of the pin t3 is reduced to tit in the opening of the nut il, which is engaged at the front face by the shoulder 8, formed by reducing the terminal portion 7. The terminal portion 7 is tapered at the end 9 and when the plastic material of which the post is constructed begins to harden, the pins supporting the nuts are withdrawn, thereby leaving the nuts embedded in proper position and forming openings l0, which extend from the nuts to the front: face of the post to permit the bolts 4t for securing the brackets 5 to the fence post to be readily engaged with the nuts 3.
The brackets 5 are each stamped or otherwise formed from a single piece of sheet metal, but any other suitable material may, of course, be employed in the construction of the brackets. .lhe bracket 5 consists of spaced upper and lower horizontal ears 12 and a vertical connecting portion 13, constituting the back, of the bracket and provided with a squared opening .ift to receive the squared portion 15 of the bolt 4, whereby the bracket is rigidly interlocked with the bol t and is adapted to be employed as a convenient means for screwing the bolt into the nut. In practice the bolt is screwed inward su tliciently to hold the bracket tightly against the face of the post, and the said bracket is adapted to exclude air from the interior of the post at the opening to prevent deterioration of the parts. The bolt-s and the brackets will preferably be galvanized to prevent; them from rusting. The ears .l2 are preferably circular, as clearly shown in Figs. 5 and (3 of the drawing, but ears l5a simply rounded at the ends, as illustatented Nov. 1 S, 1913.
trated in Fig. 7 of the drawing, may, of course, be einplo-yed when a maximum strength fastener is required, as the blank is reduced at opposite sides to form separate ears. rIhe rounding of the ears is adapted to prevent injury to stock coming in contact with the fastening means.
The ears are provided with vertically alined openings 16, arranged to receive a vertically disposed combined stay and locking rod 17, which is adapted to confine fence wires 18 in the space between the ears of the brackets. The fence wires may be inthe formof woven or other wire fabric, as illustrated n Fig. 1 of the drawing, or they may be plain wires or barbed, as shown at the top of the post. Any number of brackets may be employed, and in practice the fence post will be equipped at intervals with nuts to enable the brackets to be arranged at different points. The combined stay and locking rod, which ext-ends from the uppermost fas tener to the lowermost one, has its upper end bent downwardly to form a top loop or head 19 and a terminal locking portion 20, eX- tending through the ears of the top bracket and bent outwardly beneath the bottom ear of the said top bracket to prevent displacement of the vertical rod 17. The fence wires are loosely confined in the brackets between the upper and lower ears to permit free eX- pansion and contraction of the said wires.
The fastening device is adapted to enable a series of fence wires or wire fencing to be easily and quickly applied to a post, and it securely retains the fence wires or wire fencing inl place and at the same time will enable the saine to be readily removed when desired.
Although the fastening is shown applied to and has particular advantages when employed in connection with a plastic fence post, it will be apparent that it may be used on metal and other fence posts by passing the bolts entirely through the same.
What is claimed is 1. The combination with a fence post, of
intacts a vertical series of brackets, eachconsisting of spaced upper and lower ears anda con- Y necting portion fitted against the post, fastening devices securing the brackets to the post, and a vertical rod extending through gaging the nuts, a series of brackets fittedV against the post and secured to the same by the bolts, said brackets being arranged to exclude air from the said openings, and a rod extending through the brackets and adapted to confine fence wires therein.
3. The combination with a plastic post having a vertical series of horizont-al openings, of nuts embedded in the post at the inner ends of the said openings, a vertical series of brackets, each consisting of spaced upper and lower ears, and a connecting back portion fitted against the post and provided with a polygonal opening, bolts passing through the openings of the back portions of the brackets and havingpolygonal ortions fitting such openings and int-erlocking the brackets with the bolts to enable the latter to be screwed tightly into engagement with the nuts, and means for conlining fence wires between the ears of the brackets.
In testimony, that claim the foregoing as my own, l have hereto atliXed my signature 'in the presence of two witnesses.
JACOB FISHER.
