remove.

Specification of Letters Patent. Patented A11 27, 1918- Application filed March 12, 1918. Serial N 0. 221,980.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Hnnvnr IRELAND, .a citizen of the United States, residing at North Emporia, in the county of Greenes villeand State of ,Virginia, have invented new and useful Improvements in Sheet- Metal Shock-Binders, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a band or binder for shocked corn, the object of the invention being to provide a resilient sheet metal binder band which is simple, reliable, durable and eflicient inrconstruction, easily and. cheaply manufactured, and capable of being readily applied and removed from the shock.

A further object of the invention is to provide a resilient sheet metal band which maybe expanded about the shock, which will automatically contract as the corn dries out to keep the corn bound tightly at all times until the shock is unbound, and which embodies novel locking means for holding the ends of the band connected and permitting adjustment thereof.

The invention conslsts of the features of construction, combination and arrangement claimed, reference being had to the accompanying'drawing, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of" a corn band or hinder embodying my invention.

Fig. 2 is ta vertical longitudinal section through the ends of the band, showing the use of'the tightening and releasing tool.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of one end of the band.

Fig. 4 is a similar view of the guide and keeper loop. I

In carrying my invention into practice 1 provide a band 1 formed of resilient or spring metal, one of the ends of the band being tapered to form a tongue 2 and the opposite end 3 of the band being provided with a backturned portion suitably connected therewith to form a bight portion 4. A rectangular guide and keeper loop 5 is carried by the end 3 of the band, and consists of a strip of sheet metal bent to form an outer wall 6 spaced from the band and top and bottom walls 7 and 8, the inner edges of said top and bottom walls being provided with flanges 9 forming a back wall disposed between the folds of the bi ght it, whereby guide and keeper loop 5 is firmly secured in position.

,The body of the band is provided with one or more spring tension loops or coils 10. These loops or coils 10 are adapted to be eXpa-nded when the band is drawn about the shock of corn, so that the band maybe applied under a high degree of tension. lVhen so applied the band will grip the shock firmly, and as the shock shrinks gradually, owing to the drying outof the corn, the

loops or. coils 10 will. contract to a proper degree, thus keeping the band at all times firmly secured in p osition and preventing the corn from becomingloose. The tongue end of the band is formed with a series of longltudlnal slots 11, and this. end of the band is adapted to be passed through the loop 5 to bring one or the other of said slots into engagement wlth a locking lug or tooth 12 projecting from the end 3 of the band,

wherebythe ends of the band are adapted to be connected and adjusted to the desired degree and locked in such adjusted position about. the shock. The locking tooth 12 comprises portionsv bent from the flanges 9 and extending edgewise at right angles to the band and outward through a slot 9,

- formed in the front wall of the fold 4, into the space between the front and rear walls of the guide and keeper loop. The tooth 12 is thus interlocked with the bight 4, and thus holds the loop 5 from tilting motion. As shown, the tooth 12 is provided with an inner straightabutment shoulder 13 and an outer inclined edge 14 extending from its outer end to said abutment. shoulder. It will thus be understood that in applying the tongue it will slide over the inclined face 14 and between the same and the wall 6 of i the loop 5 until the proper slot 11 comes into alinement with the lug, whereupon such slot may be engaged with the lug to'hold the tongue fastened at the desired point.

The end 3 of the band is rovided with a slot 15 which may be engaged by the notched end 16 of a straining lever or tool 17 which is adapted to be passed through one of the slots 11 in the tongue and is adapted with a notch 18 to receive the tongue, whereby in applying the band to a shock the ends of the band may be drawn together and the band applied and looked under the desired tension, as will be readily understood. The lever may also be used to assist in adjusting the tongue to free the engaged slot from the lug, preliminarily to releasing and removing the band from the shock, thus allowing the band to be easily removed whenever required.

It will be observed that the construction of the locking lug allows the tongueto slide freely in applying it but locks the tongue from removal unless withdrawn in a prescribed manner, the lug thus having the action of a fixed locking dog. The toe of the lug at the point of intersection of its straight shoulder and inclined face bears lightly against the wall 6, which is adapted to yield outwardly under pressure to permit the tongue to slide by, but normally by its spring action bears against thelug to hold the slotted portion of the tongue engaged with the lug against displacement. In the operation of inserting the tongue, or sliding it through the loop 5, the wall 6 will spring outwardly under pressure, and in the operation of re leasing the tongue this wall may be sprung outwardly by inward pressure upon the top and bottom walls 7 and 8, thus further facilitating the disengagement of the band, while providing for its firm retention against any possibility of accidental disengagement or displacement.

It will be observed that the construction of the band is simple, allowing it to be mannfactured and sold at a comparatively low cost, that it is of a durable type and may be used for a long period, that the band automatically compensates for shrinkage of the shock and at all times firmly holds the corn confined, and that a locking mechanism of a simple and inexpensive type is provided whereby the band will' be firmly held in place against anypossibility of displacement or disconnection, but at the same time may be readily and conveniently applied and removed.

Having thus fully described my invention, I claim 1, A corn shock binder comprising a sheet Copies of this patent may be obtained for metal band, having a guide loop at one end thereof composed of resilient outer, top and bottom walls, a locking lug projecting from such end of the band within the loop and having an inner straight abutment shoulder and an outer inclined face leading to said shoulder and having its outer extremity lying in close proximity to the outer resilient wall of the guide loop, the opposite end of the band being formed to provide a tongue for insertion through said loop and having slots therein for engagement with said lug.

2. A corn shock binder comprising a sheet metal band having one end thereof pro vided on its outer side with a guide loop, and formed adjacent thereto with a straining lever receiving slot, said end of the band being provided with a locking lug projecting into said loop, the opposite end of the band being formed to provide a tongue for insertion through said loop and having slots therein for engagement with said lug and cooperation with a straining lever.

3. A corn shock binder comprising a sheet metal band having one of its ends doubled upon itself to form a bight portion provided with a slot in the outer side thereof, the 0pposite end of the band being formed to pro vide a tongue having a series of slots therein, and a keeper loop comprising a body of rectangular form bent from a single piece of resilient metal, said body having its ends arranged to form the inner wallthereof, said inner wall being fitted within said bight and having terminal portions projecting through the opening in the outer wall of the big-ht portion and into the space bounded by the loop, said projecting terminal portionshaving outer inclined edges and straight end shoulders and forming a locking lug to engage the slots in the tongue.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.

HARVEY IRELAND.
