Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 5, 1916.
Application led March 25, 1916. Serial No. 86,717.
To all whom z't may concern:
Be it known that I, JONATHAN R. GossE'rT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Marmaduke, in the county of Greene and State of Arkansas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fence- Posts, of which the following is a specication.
This invention relates to improvements in fence posts and the manner of supporting strand wires thereon, and has for one of its objects to provide a simply constructed device whereby the strand wires are supported and from which they may be readily removed when broken or impaired and renewed without discarding the remaining portions of the device.
With these and other objects in View, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, as hereinafter shown and described and then specifically pointed out in the claims; and in the drawings illustrative of the preferred embodiment of the invention Figure lis a perspective view of one of the improved posts with the strand Wires and fastening devices applied; Fig. 2 is an enlarged vertical section of the parts shown in Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 illustrating a modification in t'he construction.
Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the drawings by the same reference characters.
The post is represented as a whole at l() and is preferably formed of a section of a channel bar including a main transverse web 11 and narrower lateral webs 12. The post is inserted by its lower end in the ground, indicated as a whole at 13, to any required extent to insure the stability of the post. The web 11 of the portion of the post above the ground is provided with apertures 14 corresponding in distance apart to the strand wires of the fence, portions of the latter being represented conventionally at l5 and bearing transversely of the post and in contact with the lateral webs 12, as shown. Usually the upper strand wire is constructed from heavier strands generally entwisted, as shown at 16, and provided with barbs, reprewires 15 at the lower end are spaced at less distances apart to exclude smaller animals. The improved device may be employed in connection with the various forms of fencing panels, and it is not desired, therefore, to limit the invention in any manner in this respect.
'lhe fastening device is formed from a single strip of wire coiled at one end around the upper strand wire 16 adjacent to one of the side members 12 of the post, as shown at 1S. The wire is then extended across the rear face of the post, as represented at 19, and thence bent around the strand wire 16, at the opposite side of the post, as shown at 20, and thence carried over the rear of the post, as shown at 21, and thence through the upper opening 111 and around the portion of the strand wire 16 between the sides 12 and thence downwardly and beneath the next strand wire and thence through the adjacent aperture 11i and thence downwardly in the rear of the post, as illustrated at 22, and thence through the next opening 14 and around the next strand wire and so on throughout the total height of the fence, the terminal of the holding wire being coiled, as shown at 23 around the lower strand wire 15. The holding wire when thus arranged not only supports the strand wires from displacement vertically, but likewise from displacement laterally and firmly binds the strand wires to the post. If preferred the holding member may be coiled around each strand wire, as shown in Fig. 3, to increase the holding force and prevent vertical displacement of the strand wires.
The post 10 may be constructed of any suitable strength or size according to the strains to which it will be subjected. The post may be of steel, iron, concrete, or a compound of steel or iron and concrete, as may be preferred.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is 1. The combination with the post having a transverse aperture, of a holding member having an eye at one end adapted to engage a fence strand at one edge of the post and extending across the rear of the post and looped around the strand at the opposite side of the post and thence passed through the aperture of the post and engaged with the strand intermediate the edges of the post.
2. The combination with a fence including a p'ost having a plurality of transverse apertures spaced apart and a plurality of strand members spaced apart and correspending to the apertures, of a holding memd and thence extended and passed in zigzag order around the remaining strand members and through the apertures and connected at 10 its terminal to the lower strand member.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
