PETER PIRSCH, OF KENOSI-IA, WISCNSIN.

TONGUE-SUPIORT.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Au 1, 1916.

Application filed March 20, 1916. Serial No. 85,240.

To all flo/wm t may concern.'

Be it known that I, PETER Pinson, a citizen of the United States, and resident of Kenosha, in'the county of Kenosha and State of Wisconsin, have invented new and useful Improvements in Tongue-Supports, of which the following is a description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which are a part of this specification.

The invention relates to tongue supports.

The invention is 'designed more particula-rly to provide a tongue support for two wheeled vehicles and more particularly that type used in hand propelled or pulled fire apparatus.

The invention is further designed to provide a tongue support comprising a member fitted to the forward end of the tongue and provided with hand grips for holding the tongue while pulling the vehicle and a leg support swingingly pivoted to said hand grip member and adapted to be locked thereto to support the tongue or to be folded upwardly and secured beneath the tongue.

The invention further consists in the several features hereinafter set forth and more particularly defined by claims at the conclusion hereof.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of the device embodying the invention; Fig. 2 is a front view thereof; Fig. 3 is a section taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2; Fig. 4 is a section similar to Fig. 3, showing a modified form thereof; Fig. 5 is a section similar to Fig. 3, showing a modified form thereof.

In the drawings the device is shown applied to the tongue 6 of a two-wheeled hand propelled chemical.

The device comprises a supporting and attaching bracket 7 which also forms a means. for supporting the tongue while pulling the vehicle, a leg support 8 pivotally connected to said bracket, means for locking the leg to the bracket, and means for securing it to the tongue.

The supporting bracket 7 comprises a member having a bore 9'for lreceiving the end 10 of the tongue 7 ,-1 hand grips 11 on either side of the'bore 9, a web 12, and rope guides 13 for receiving. pulling ropes 14 disposed below and on either side of the web 12.

The leg support 8 comprises a pair of metal strips 15 which are pivotally secured at their upper ends to the bracket 7 by a pin 1G mounted in said bracket and which are joined together at their other end by a wood filling block 17 and bolts 18.v A wood filling block 19 is secured between the strips 15 by bolts 21. A caster wheel 22 mounted in a pin 23 journaled in a forked bracket 24swiveled in the block 19 permits the vehicle to be turned about with the tongue in supported position.

The means for locking the leg to the bracket comprises means carried by the leg for -detachably engaging the web 12 of the bracket. In Fig. 3 this means comprises a U-shaped metal strap 25, the transverse portion of which is secured to the block 19 by a bolt 26 and the sides of which are adapted to be disposed adjacent the web 12 and a cotter pin 27 is passed through apertures 28 in the ends of the strap 25 to thus embrace the web and secure the leg in upright tongue-supporting position. In Fig. 4, I have shown a modified form of locking device which is simpler than that of Fig. 3 in that it provides for automatically locking the leg to the bracket. This comprises a U-shaped metal strap 29, the transverse portion of which is adapted to be secured to the block 19 by a bolt 30 and the ends of the sides of the strap each have a portion 31, bent inwardly at approximately a right angle and then a portion 32 bent outwardly and back to form a beveled end so that the leg 8 may be swung down and the beveled ends 32 engaging the web 12 press the arms of the strap 29 apart to receive the web 12 and thus hold the leg in-upright tongue holding position. The construction shown in Fig. 5 is quite similar' to that shown in Fig. 4eXcept that the locking device only engages one side of the bracket. This form comprises a strap 33 secured to the tongue in the same manner as the other forms by a bolt 34, said strap having its forward portion bent to form a beveled end 35 and a side portion 36, said strap serving to partially surround and thushold the leg support in tongue-supporting position.

The means for securing the leg to the tongue comprises a depending hooked bracket 37, its transverse portion 38 serving to support the leg in upper raised position and thus keep it out of the way, while pulling the vehicle.

From the foregoing description it will be apparent that the bracket and leg constitute a simple, convenient and strong construction for the purpose described.

What I claim as my invention is l. The combination, with a tongue, of a hand hold supporting bracket secured to the end thereof and provi-ded with an intermediate web portion, a tongue supporting leg comprising metal strips pivotally secured to said bracket and secured together at their lower ends, a caster mounted in the lower end of the leg, a U-shaped metal strap having inwardly beveled ends Secured to said leg for automatically locking it to the web of said bracket when in upright position to support the tongue, and a hooked bracket carried by the tongue for securing the leg in inoperative position.

2. The combination, with a tongue, of a han-d hold supporting bracket secured to the end thereof and provided with an intermediate web portion, a' tongue supporting leg swingingly pivotally secured to said bracket, a U-shaped metal strap carried by said leg for automatically locking it to the web of said bracket when in upright position to support the tongue, and means carried by the tongue forsecuring the leg in inoperative position.

In testimony whereof, I alix my signature.

PETER PIRSCH.
