HAND emrrme DEVICE:
T 0; all whom it may concern? V I x I Be 1t known that I, VILLIAM FOREMAN, a
citizen of the United States, residingat J efferson township, in the county of Montgomcry. and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hand Gripping Devices, of which the following is a specification. j V
My invention relates to-sa handgripping device. l
Some of the principal objects of said innti n iconsist n p o d ng a g pping device intended to take the place of the human hands, thereby preventing injury to, and the wear and tear of said human hands; as is the case 1n kltchen work, especially when handling hot pots and kettles: also in laundry work, when manipulating and handling clothes taken directly from the hotsuds preparatory to rubbing them on the wash-board. Also, to provide a device adapted for service in foundries in handling and manipulating pieces of hot metal and metallic articles; thus obviating the use of the human hands, and thereby protecting same.
Further objects are to provide a handy and useful device as above referred to, that can be readily and easily operated; is simple in construction and composed of few parts; and'one which can be manufactured at a small cost and therefore is inexpensive.
This invention consists essentially,.re ferring briefly and in general terms to the structure embodying the 'same;of the peculiar construction, arrangement and combination of the various parts and the minor details thereof; as will hereinafter be fully and specifically described and set forth in the subjoined claim, all in accordance with the statutes in such cases made and provided therefor. V 7
Referring to the accompanying drawings constituting a formal part of this specification, and illustrating one form of construction for carrying out the objects and printhe article to be handled, when brought towardeach other in the act of gripping or in' the posture they assume when in operative p0siti0n,-see Fig. 3,with what might be termed large teeth 0, having a wide space between each,-the two outer ones d being much larger so as to facilitate the operation of gripping :the inner surface or face of each tooth is preferably fiat as clearly shown, so as not to injure clothes or articles that might be easily damaged when thus handling; but it will of course be obvious that theouter edges of said jaws A and B, instead of being provided with said teeth, may if so desired be provided with a roughened and sharp or serrated surface, or said edges may in factv be formed and provided Specification of Letters Patent. PatentedOet. 23; 19 17. l l pplication filed Jfun e1,1914.. "seriain s iaozef in any suitable manner according to the class i of articles it is desired to handle and the kind of work said device is intended for.
1 Jaws A and B are provided at the edge opposite to said teeth, with ears 6, and ears f respectively; from which extend or project the hand-holds or handles G and H respectively,of the respective upper and lower sections of said device :the opening of each of said hand-holds being sufiiciently wide and large, to allow the hand of'the person using the device to pass through,see Fig. 1; and firmly grasp said hand-holds and press them toward each other and approximately together, which will also compress said jaws toward each other until the parts pass from the positions shown in Fig. 1, and
assume the approximate positions shown in Fig. 3.
Hand-hold G is formed with a brace or strengthening-bar 9, while in hand-hold H this is omitted to allow for the assembling or disconnecting of the two sections composing the device, which are hinged together by means of a pintle or hingerod h, which passes through and rests in the eyes of said ears ev and f, and is removably held therein by means of a head 70 at one end and a nut Z at the opposite and screw-threaded end,- similar to a bolt.
, Mounted uponpintle-h as fully and more specifically shown in Fig. 1, is a spring m,
t the ends m of which project like small arms, and rest or have their bearing against the jaws A and B, the strength and size of said spring being suflicient so that ends m will always exert the proper amount'of ten- L, sion on said jaws to hold them open and apart when in their normal position, so that the device is ready to be operated. Said spring may extend along said pintle the entire distance between said ears, or only' a part of the distance asliere shown.
In practice the devlce is intended to be Copies of this patent may be obtained for terial.
Having now described my hand gripping devicein connection with "the illustrations,-as my invention and as new, I claim- The combination in a gripping device of sections having their meeting edges provided with a toothed surface, a hand-hold on each section, a brace-rod forstrengthening one of said hand-holds, a hinged connection located between said sections on which is mounted a spring for controlling the meet-. ing edges of said sections.
Intestimony whereof I al'fix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
