BENJAMIN S.v ROBERTS, OENEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, ASSIGNOR TO O. B. NORTH & CO., OF SAME PLACE.
Letters Patent No. 109,145, dated November 8, 1870.
IMPROVEMENT |N Brrs FOR HARNESS.
The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part of the same.
To all whom 'it may concern :V
Be it known that I, BENJAMrN S. Renners, of New Ilaren, in 'the county of New Haven and State ot" Connecticut, ha"ve invented a new improvement in Single Curb and Snaie-Bit; and I do hereby declare the ihllowing, when taken in connection with the accompanying dran-'ings and let-ters ot' ret'erence marked thereon, to be a full, clear, and exact description ot the same, und which said drawings constitute part ot' this specilication, and represent inf Figure l, a front view;
Figure 2, a 'top view ot' the bit when the reins are slack; and in Figure 3, the sumo when the reins are drawn taut.
This ,invention relates to an improvement in lthe construction ot' hridlc-bits, the object being to avoid the use ot' the uncomfortable -curvedhit, and at the same time to construct a bit so that in whatever position the horscs head is placed the curb will act.
' 'It well known that, in nearly all the bits now in use, it'fthe horse throws his head down against his breast the bit has very slight effect upon his mouth.
By my invention these diticultics are entirely overcome, and it consists in a jointed bit, each part of which,
at, its outer-` extremity, has anarm arranged, extendingback, so that by drawing upon the reins the bit is turned upon its hinge and the two arms will press hard against the jaw of the horse upon opposite sides.
A is one part, and
B, the other part of a bit, jointed at a, .by preference a hinged joint.
C C are the rein-rings, attached to the bit in the usual man ner. y
Each of the parts A and B have, at their outer end,
respectively, an arm, A and B', extending back, as
seen in fig. 2, so that when the bit lies straight in the mouth the arms extend back, lying upon the outside ot' the jaw of the horse. Therefore, when the reins are drawn taut so as to draw upon thebit, as seen in iig. 3, the arms are tuned inward, bearing against the jaw ol' the horse with a pressure according to the strain upon the reins, and this pressure will be alike in whatever position the horses head may be placed.
lSy this construction, in 'ordinary driving the bit is no more uncomfortable tothe horse than the common snatlle-bit, and, unlike the common curb or curved bit,V it will act equally well in whatever position the horse may place his head, andthe pressure of the arms upon the jaw may be made so great that, whatever the nature of the horse,he must succumb to the power of the driver.
I do not wish to be understood as broadly claiming a bit with arms attached thereto near the outer end, as such is not new. Y
I claim as my invention- 1. A bit in which the joint is constructed in a hingeform, as described, so as to retain the two parts in the same relative position, substantially as herein setbrth.
2.. A bit in which the two parts A and B are hinged together by a joint of hinge-form, in the manner described, and each of the said parts provided respectively with arms A and B', formed in ,one and the same piece with their'respect-ive parts of the bit, as
herein sett'orth.
B. S. ROBERTS.
lVitnesses A. J. Tnznrrs, J. H. SHUMwA-Y.
