CORD TIP.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 27,1922.

Application filed September 2, 1921." Serial Ho; 497,866.

To aZZ whom it may concern: 7

Be it known that I, JAMES P. KnLLY, a citizen of the United States of America, re-

siding at New York city, New York County,

New York, haveinvented a new and useful Cord Tip, of which the following is a specification. v

My invention relates to a tip or finishing piece for a cord, rope, or. the like.

The main object is to provide a simple and inexpensive construction for gathering together and securely holding the ends of a cord, lacing, or rope in such a manner that the device may be applied by anyone andv removed or re-applied when desired. In other words, it enables one to shorten a cord and reapply the tip.

In its preferred form the invention contemplates a clamping member which embraces the end of the cord, and a sleeve or ferrule for holding the clamping member in place.

Figure 1 shows one form of a demos of my invention.

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view showing the parts being applied to the end of a cord.

Fig. 3 is a sectional view of a somewhat different form shown in my application #472,429, filed May 25, 1921, as to which form this present application is a continuation of the former application. Fig. 4 shows the parts of another mod1fication.

Fig. 5 shows the parts of still another modification.

Fig. 6 shows the parts of still another modification of the device being applied to a cord. 7

For convenience the word cord will be used to indicate any form of rope or lacing. The clamping member in the form shown in Figs. 1 and 2 has two jaws 10 adapted to embrace the end of a cord 11. One or both of these jaws is provided with teeth 12 which are sharp and inclined toward the end of the cord so that when applied the teeth will dig into the end of the cord and securelyprevent the cord from being withdrawn from the jaws.

The sleeve 13 is adapted to embrace the jaws of the clamping member and hold them securely in place. This sleeve is held between the shoulders 14 and 15 of the jaws so as to prevent accidental relative longitudinal movement; The outer end 16 of the sleeve 13 may be split to permit this part ofthe sleeve to yield when sliding it overthe head 17 of the clamping member.. The opposite end of the sleeve may be crimped inwardly at 18 to more snugly fit in the grooves adjacent the. shoulders '15.- The sleeve may be somewhat tapered as shown. I 1

In the form shown in Fig. 3 the jaws 20 of the clamping member are separately formed and applied to the end of the cord and held together by the sleeve 21, which in this case is closed at its outer'end. The sleeve and clamping member may be" interlocked by the projection 22 and groove 23 so as tov prevent accidental separation.

-In the form shown in Fig. 4 the inner clamping member is provided with a'groove f '25 adj acent its head to receive the bosses 26 of the sleeve which is adapted to be slid and snapped into place. I

In the form shown in Fig. 5 the inner clamping member has its jaws facing toward the end of the cord'and hasa threaded portion 27 to receive a correspondingly threaded portion 28 of the outer sleeve. The end 29 of the sleeve is preferably closed so that when the parts are screwed together the sleeve can more securely force the jaws into engagement with the cord. In this construction the, threaded portions. should have a snug fit to prevent accidental separation.

In the form shown in Fig.6 the clamping member 30 is tapered somewhat being larger in its diameter at its outer end, and the sleeve 31 is correspondingly tapered. The ends of the jaws are flanged at 32 to co-act with the smaller end of the sleeve 31 when the parts are assembled.

In any of the construction described, it will be seen that by disengaging the sleeve. from the clamping member the jaws may be readily disengaged from the cord. Obviously, the cord may be cut olf and the tip re-applied by anyone without difliculty. In

the preferred form of Figs. 1 and2 the sleeve and clamping member are so constructed that when the sleeve is slid into the position shown in Fig. 2 to enable the device to be applied to or removed from the cord, the sleeve is still connected to the clamping member and will not become accidently disengaged. When the arts are assembled as shown in Fig. 1 the tting of-the flange 18' into the groove 15 affords practically a positive lock against accidental separation, the resiliency of the cord forcing the aws outwardly.

I claim:

1. A cord tip comprising a clamping member having jaws for engaging the end of a cord anda sleeve embracing said jaws and slidable longitudinally with relation thereto, said jaws and said sleeve having interfitting flanged and grooved portions.

2. A cord tip comprising a clamping member having toothed jaws and an outwardly flaring flange at its innerend, and a sleeve embracing said jaws and prevented by said flange from longitudinal movement in one direction with relation to said jaws, and means for preventing longitudinal movement of said sleeve in the opposite direction.

3. A cord tip comprising a clamping mem ber having jaws for engaging the end of a cord and a sleeve embracing said jaws, one end of said sleeve being split to permit yielding thereof.

4. A cord tip comprising a clamping member having jaws for clamping the ends of a cord, and a sleeve slidab-le on said jaws and having an inwardly projecting portion for engaging said clamping member to prevent longitudinal movement in one direction with relation thereto.

5; .A cord tip comprising ameinber having toothed clamping jaws anda grooved portion, a sleeve embracing said jaws and having an inwardly projecting portion engaging said grooved portion.
