FRANK J'. ARNEY, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

ADJ USTING LOOI.

Application led September 9, 1925. Serial' No. 55,378.

To all whom t may concern Be it known that I, FRANK J. ARNEY, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of the Bronx, in the county of Bronx and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Adjusting Loop, of which the tollowing is a full, clear, and exact description.

This inventionrelates 'to adjusting loops and more speciiically to a coupling device for ropes, cords, cables and the like, which permits ready adjustment of the rope or other flexible connecting device or devices, and which rigidly holds the same against possibility of accidental slipping.

A further object is to provide a device of this character which can be manufactured and sold at at an extremely low rice and which will most eiliciently periorm the functions for which it is intended.

While my device is primarily adapted for use as an adjusting member or coupling for the ends or sections of ropes, such as used in connection with clotheslines, hammock supports, tent ropes and other analogous uses, I would have it distinctly understood that the invention is capable of a wide range of utility and may be made of any desired size and proportion to suit the particular use.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations and arrangements of parts, which will be more fully hereinafter described and pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a view in elevation, showing my improved device in operative position;

Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure 1, showing the opposite side of the device,

Figures 3 and 4 are views in elevation, showing opposite sides of the device detached from the ropes;

Figure 5 is an edge view takenat right angles to Figure 1.

My improved adjusting loop, comprises a bar 1 of metal or other analogous material which is formed with an eye 2 at one end and an opening 3 intermediate its ends. One extremity of 'the bar 1 is made fork shape, as shown at 4, to provide an inverted V-shaped rope receiving a recess 5 at the end of the bar.

Said bar 1 in one face is formed with a longitudinal groove 6 extending from the recess 5 to the opening 3 to accommodate a rope therein.

Against the fork-shaped extremity 4, said bar 1 is formed at opposite 'sides with laterally projecting lugs 7 and 8, preferably out of alinement, or, in other words, diagonally disposed relatively to the longitudinal axis of the bar 1.

On the face of the bar 1 opposite to the face containing the groove 6, I provide the bar 1 with a transversely extending recess or groove` 9, forming a web 10 on the bar at the wall of said recess adjacent the orkshaped extremity 4l of lsaid bar. This recess or groove 9 and the web 10 are disposed at an angle to the longitudinal axis of the bar, and the extremities of the grooved or recessed portion 9 merge into the curvature or outline of the lugs 7 and 8.

For convenience of description I will assume that two ropes 11 and 12 are to be adjustably coupled, although it is possible that this may constitute a 'single rope and the two ends connected to the loop, which would be the case with clothesline, tent rope, hammock support, or other analogous use.

The rope 11 is secured in the eye 2. A convenient manner of' securing the same is to project the rope through the eye and form a knot 13 in the rope, as shown. The end of the rope 12 is projected through the opening 3, then extended down through the groove 6, thence through the groove 5 of fork 4, over lug 7, thence across the bar over lug 8, thence back of the bar into the groove, back of web 19, with the end of the rope under the main portion of the rope, as clearly 'shown in Figure 2.

Thus any strain on the ropes tending to loosen the same only increases the bite of 'the ropes at opposite sides of the device. For example, the crossed ropes or sections oi' the rope at one side, as shown in Figure 2, give one bite of one rope section against the other, and the crossed ropes or sections at the opposite side of the device, as shown at Figure 1, give a second bite or gripping action. Hence the tighter the rope the greater the bite or gripping action and accidental slipping is absolutely prevented.

Various slight changes and alterations might be made in the general form of the parts described without departing from my invention, and hence I do not limit myself to the precise details set forth but consider inyself at liberty 'to inalre such slight changes and alterations as fairly fall Within the spirit and scope or' the appended claims.

l claim:

l. An adjusting loop, including a bar adapted at one end to be connected to a rope end, the other end of said bar being forkshaped, lugs at opposite edges of the bar adjacent the forli-shaped end, a transverse web on one 'face of said bar in substantial alinenient with the 'l'aces of said lugs, and said bar having an opening therein intermediate its ends, one face of the bar having a longitudinal groove extending from the forl-shaped end to said opening, and havingV a transverse groove in its opposite face in alinernent with said web.

2. A device of the character described,

comprising a bar having an opening at one end and an opening intermediate its ends, a rope secured in the first mentioned opening, the other opening adapted to receive the rope for adjustable connection to 'the bar, said bar having laterally .projecting lugs at its opposite edges out of alineinent and having a forli-shaped end and a transverse groove in one tace oi` the bar, a transverse web on the bar at one Wall of said groove and in substantial alineinent with the faces oi said lugs, the adjustable rope or end of rope being adapted to pass through the intermediate opening or the bar7 thence through the forli-shaped end, thence transversely across the bar above the lugs, through the groove and under the inain portion ot the rope substantially as described.
