Description

y nire srArEs 'WILLIAM A. HOLLAND, OF LONDON, OHIO.

FENCEEOST.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Apr. 5, 1921.

Application led .Tune 22, 1917. Serial No. 176,265.

To AZZ whom t may concern Be it known that I, 1i/VrLLrAM A. HOLLAND, a citizen ot the United States, residing London, .in the county of Madison and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fenceposts, oi` which the `following is a specication.

rIhis invention relates to fence posts and is particularly directed to an improved type oil base for posts whereby the post may be erected in position without necessarily digging a hole in the ground and also whereby the post will be held in substantially a rigid position when once set inA position.

In this connection, the main object of my invention resides in a stabilizer structure whereby the post is held in a substantially rigid position. This main stabilizer structure is also supplemented, if desired, by a supplemental stabilizer structure which is slidably mounted upon the main rod torm- `ing the base unit and is driven into position after the base has been set.

The preferred embodiment of my invention is shown in the accompanying sheet of drawings, in which similar characters of reference designate corresponding parts,

and in which Figure l is a view in side elevation, a portion being broken out, of my improved type ot fence post base,

Fig. 2 is an edge view of the upper portion ot the base, and,

Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the structure shown in Figs. l and 2.

In these drawings, the base is shown as comprising a main rod l, which carries a screw pointed end 2 at its bottom, which screw terminates at its upper end in a materially widened spiral shaped iiight 3. The screw 2 and flight 3 may be made one as desired, or the entire structure may be formed integrally upon the rod l, the essence oi this portion of the structure being the tact that the screw 2 assists in drawing the post into the ground, it being supplemented in this action by means ot the Hight 3, which latter also serves as a stabilizer to prevent the post from leaning one way or another. The earth upon the top and bottom sides ot' this Hight act to prevent this action and likewise this flight prevents the ready removal oir the base by a direct upward pull. At its upper end,l the rod l carries a supplemental stabilizer in the form of a plate 4L having a pointed end 5V and being medially formed to iit the rod l. As 1s shown in Figs. l and 2, this plate is stamped medially to semi-circular shape at the portions indicated by the numeral 6, while at the points indicated by the numeral 7 the material of this plate is stamped in the opposite direction but to a shape to substantially tit the rod l. In this manner, the plate may be slid into position over the upper lend of the rod and may be driven into the ground after the base has been sunk the desired depth. In order to clamp the plate in position after it has been thus forced into the ground, I have provided a supplemental clamp 8, which is provided with pierced ears to coperate with the bolt and nut structures shown at 9 inthe well known manner. The upper end of the rod l terminates in a squared end l0 provided with a series of apertures ll upon which end the fence post itself may be secured. It will be understood that the particular shape of the upper end of this rod is not essential to the present invention, as naturally this end would be shaped to t the particular type of post desired to be used.

From the foregoing description, it will be apparent that I have provided a base for a post which may be readily placed in position in the ground due to the screw pointed end- 2 and the materially enlarged flight 3. 'Ihis Hight 3 serves additionally as a stabilizer to prevent the post leaning one way or another and in addition serves as a guard to prevent the ready removal of the base by a direct pull. Further, the supplemental stabilizer is resorted to and is placed in position by driving it into the ground after the base has been set. After this, it may be clamped in position by means of the clamp plate 8 if desired, although this latter is not absolutely necessary.

What I claim, is:

1. In a fence post adapted to be driven into the ground, a stabilizer slidably mounted thereon comprising a plate having its center portion concaved to present a longitudinal post engaging groove, and a supplemental clamp structure in cooperation with said groove to complete the attachment of the stabilizer to the post.

2. In a fence post adapted to be driven into the ground, a stabilizer mounted therestabilizer to said post after both are driven on comprising a plate tapered at its bottom into the ground. 10 end and having a portion of its center oon In testimony whereof I aiiix my signature caved to form a post engaging groove and in presence of tWo Witnesses.

another portion oonoaved oppositely to also: WILLIAM A. HOLLAND. form a post engaging groove and a supple- Witnesses:

one of said grooves to rigidly secure said ANNA HILL.
