H. v. MCCULLOCH IDENTIFICATION CLAMP Filed April 17. 1922 Patented Uct. t3,

.2 il and th y HERBERT V. I /ioCULLOCT-I, OE

#QNEAPOLIS, REINNESOTA.

ITEENTTEICATION CLAMP.

Application filed April 17,

To (1U "LU/0717, it may 0071.02 212 lie it known that l, liniuian'r l MoCUL- LUUII, a citizen of the United States, residing at Minneapolis, in the county of Herr nepin and State of ll'linnesota, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Identification Clamps; and 1 do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

My invention has for its object to provide an extremely simple, low cost and highly efficient identification clamp especially adapted for use by school children and others for marking and identifying various different articles or wearing apparel. The so-called clamp will preferably have a numbered, initialed or otherwise marked tag applied thereto and is adapted to be quickly clamped to rubbers, overshoes, coats, hats and the like. It is, for example, well adapted to hold together a pair of rubbers or overshoes and, as preferably designed, the identification tag is perforated so that it adapts the clamp .to be hung from a hook or the like. Preferably, the clamp is made from three stamped sheet metal elements adapted to be quickly assembled ly use of but a single rivet or pin.

in the accompanying drawings, which illustrate the invention, like characters 1ndicate like parts throughout the several views.

Referring to the drawings: Fig. 1 is a perspective showing the clamp used to hang a pair of rubbers on a hook; Fig. 2 is a perspective of the clamp itself; Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the clamp; Fig. l is a section on the line 44- of Fig. 3; and

Fig. 5 is a perspective showing the yoke elementof the clamp.

The body or main element ('5 of the clamp is of ap n'oximately U-shape formation and is stamped from a Hat bar or sheet of thin flat spring steel. The ends of this clamp body have upturned ends 7 spaced therefrom so as to increase the resilience or spring action of said member and to afford smooth clamping surfaces that will not injure the article clamped between them. The bow of said. member 6 is concavely bent in cross section so as to give it increased stiffness at 56 that place. t their intermediate portions,

1922. Serial No. 553,818.

both arms of the member (5 are provided with parallel laterally spaced slots 8.

The numeral 9 indicates a clamp yoke also preferably stamped from thin sheet spring steel and bent to form parallel ears formed with perforations l0 and united with a transverse portion 11 by laterally bulged channel portions 12. In assembling the ele ments of the clamp, the ears of the yoke 9 are passed through the slots 8 of both arms of the clamp body 6 and the engaged portion of one of the arms of said member 6 will be sprung into engagement with the channels 12, thus locking said yoke 9 to that arm. The perf rated ends of the ears 9 project through the other arm of the member 6 and a coupling pin or rivet 13 is passed through the same. This coupling pin serves to pivotally connect to the perforated ends of said ears a cam-acting or eccentric clamp lever 14 also preferably stamped from a single piece of sheet steel. Said lever 1a is made channel shaped in cross section so as to give it strength combined with lightness and, at its pivoted end, it has eccentric cam-acting flanges let.

The numeral 15 indicates an identification clip provided at one end with a perforation adapting it to be passed onto the bowed portion of the clamp member (5 where it will be held against displacement by the yoke 8. Of course, this clip must be applied before the yoke is applied. Preferably, the identification clip 15, at its free end, is pro vided with a perforation l6 adapting it to be engaged with a hanger hook 17 or the like, as shown in Fig. l, in which view said clamp holds together and suspends a pair of rubbers 18.

When the lever 14- is turned as shown in Figs. 2 and 3, the jaws of the clamp body 6 will be opened, but when said lever is turned approximately one hundred and eighty degrees from the position there shown, the jaws of the clamp body will be tightly pressed against any article placed between the same. Of course, the device can be readily applied to coats, hats, gloves and various other articles, for the purpose of identification. There is great demand for such a device for use by school children to enable quick identification of their own lothes and to prevent confusion in selecting their own clothes from places where they are packed in small quarters, l /lore genorally, however, the device will be found useful wherever people gather in public places, such as lodges, churches, theaters and the like. To be popular, such a device must be of very low cost and the construction that I have above illustrated meets this requirement; All of the elements may be rapidly made by die-pressing and may be quickly assembled.

WVhat I claim is:

An identification clamp comprising an approximately U-shaped spring metal body formed with parallel slots, a yoke having parallel ears passed through the slots in the arms of said clamp body, and a cam-acting lever pivoted t the projecting ends of the ears of said yoke and operating to clamp the arms of said body onto an article passed between the same, said yoke immediately adjacent to its transverse base portion having outwardly offset channels interlocking the same to one of the arms of said clamp body and locating the arms of said yoke inward of the edges of the arms of said clamp body.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

HERBERT V. MoOULLOGI-I.
