Description

Sept. 30, 1930'. w. F. ECKART TROLLEY ANCHOR Filed June 20, 1929 William ff fi'a/rdrl,

IN VEN T OR.

A TTORNE Y.

Patented Sept. 3t), 1930 'WILLIAMF. ECKART, on CHICAGO, ILLINOIS TROLLEY ANCHOR Application filed June 20,

The present invention relates to improvements in fishermens appliances and has reference more particularly to a trolley anchor.

One of the important objects of the prescut invention is to provide an anchoring member that includes a body having a line attaching element extending from one end thereof, a series of radially disposed prongs or arms projecting from the other end of the body. i

Another object is to provide a trolley anchor of the above-mentioned character wherein the prongs and line attaching elements are formed at their inner ends in such a manner as to prevent any possibility of turning movement being imparted to the elements when the anchor is in use.

A still further object is to provide a device of the above-mentioned character which is simple in construction, inexpensive, strong and durable and further well adapted for the purposes for which it is designed.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the fol lowing description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing.

In the accompanying drawing wherein like reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout-the same;

Figure 1 is a side elevation of the trolley anchor embodying my invention, parts being broken away; and

Figure 2 is a bottom plan view thereof.

In the drawing wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 1 designates the cast lead body that tapers smaller toward its upper end. A shank forming rod 2 is embedded at its lower end in the upper end of the body 1 and the lower end of the shank is bent back upon itself and the bent back portion 3 is clearly shown in Figure 1. The purpose of constructing the inner end of the shank 2 in this manner is to provide a means whereby said shank will be prevented from rotating within the body 1.

The upper end of the shank 2 is formed with a line attaching eye 4 whereby the de- 5 vice may be attached to a line at one end 192-9. Serial No. 372,480.

thereof and which line may be employed to hold lishermens trolling lines.

Forming a salient part of the present invention are the wire prongs denoted generally by the numeral 5. T he inner end portions of each of the prongs are disposed vertically and are embedded in the lower end of the body 1 and these vertically disposed inner end portions of the prongs are designated by the numeral 6. The extremities of to the vertical portions 6 are bent back upon themselves and the bent back portions 7 also function to prevent turning movement of the inner ends of the rongs in the body 1.

The outer end portions of the prongs are directed laterally and slightly upwardly to form a series of radially disposed arms 8. Any number of these prongs may be employed as is desired.

A trolley anchor of the above-mentioned 7 character will at all times be positive and efficient in carrying out the purposes for which it is designed and due to its simplicity, the same can be constructed at a very low cost and be strong and durable. 7

While I have shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that minor changes in the size, shape and a1 rangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from thespirit of the inven 8 tion or the scope of the appended claims.

WVhat is claimed is:

1. In a trolley anchor of the class de scribed, a body, a rod having one end embedded in one end of the body, the outer end of said rod being formed with a line attaching eye, rods embedded at their inner ends in the opposite end of-the body and arranged. in annular spaced relation with respect to each other, the inner end portions of the rods being extended a distance beyond the body, the outer ends of said rods being bent later ally and directed outwardly to provide a series of radially disposed anchoring prongs.

2. In a trolley anchor of the class described, a body, a rod having one end embedded in one end of the body, the outer end of said rod being formed with a line attaching eye, rods embedded at their inner ends in the opposite end of the body and;

arranged in annular spaced relation with respect to each other, the inner end portions of the rods being extended a distance beyond the body, the outer ends of said rods being bent laterally and directed outwardly to provide a series of radially disposed anchoring prongs, the embedded ends of the rod being constructed to prevent turning movement of the rod with respect to the body.

In testimony whereof I allix my signature.

\VILLIAM F. ECKART.
