June 14, 1932. v. E. SISSON BRACKET SUPPORT FOR COUPLER RELEASE RODS Filed July 9, 1930 INVENTOR "om/hm 6.5mm

ATTORNEY$ Patented June 14, 1932 VIN'ION E. SISSON', OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS BRACKET SUPPORT FOR COUPLER RELEASE RODS Application filed July 9,

This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in rod supports which are particularly useful in railway car equipment. One such use is with what is known as coupler release rigging, which includes an operating rod mounted horizontally on the end of a car and connected at an intermediate portion to the coupler, the ends of the rod being offset so that the train man may perform the uncoupling act without getting between the two cars.

This invention relates more particularly to the construction of the support for the rod, the purpose being to provide certain new and useful means whereby the rod will be effectively and securely held in operative positlon. Since such devices are subjected to very severe vibration, it is of great importance that they i should be so constructed as to effectively resist the same.

In the accompanying drawing Fig. 1 is a plan view partly broken away;

Fig. 2 is an end view of the parts shown in Fig. 1.

In that particular form of the invention shown in the drawing, 1 represents a rod which may constitute part of a coupler release rigging. In the drawing, I have shown only one of the brackets for supporting such a rod.

2 represents the base of such a bracket, which base is designed to be surely fastened to a support in any desired position by any suitable means. This base carries a U-shaped rod supporting portion 3 in the bottom of which rests the rod 1. 4: is a keeper block or saddle which is designed to fit in between the two upright sides of the U-shaped portion, the lower side of the block standing over the rod 1, thus holding it in place. It will be noted that the rear side of the block 4 is tapered toward its ends and that the adjacent side of the U- shaped portion 3 of the bracket is correspondingly recessed so that the block cannot be improperly applied to the bracket and so that when applied it cannot move endwise in said bracket. The recess in the rear side wall of the bracket forms, in effect, two shoulders, and the tapered rear side of the filler block forms in effect two shoulders cooperating with the shoulders on the rear wall of the 1980. Serial No. 466,744.

bracket to prevent the aforesaid endwise movement of said block in the bracket. The block is held against vertical movement by a cotter pin 5, or split key, or any other suitable device. The outer wall of the U-shaped portion of the bracket is provided with a pin entrance passage, and the block 4: is provided with a pin passage which is branched or forked so as to form between the branches a wedge 6 in line with said entrance passage. On the rear side wall of the bracket and registering with the spread ends of the forked passage in the block are two exit passages or apertures, the entrances to which latter are preferably conical in shape to facilitate the entrance of the pin ends and through which the spread ends of the pin may pass. lVhen the pin is driven into place it passes entirely through the front and rear walls of the bracket as well as through the block 4, the mere act of driving said pin into place automatically spreads the pin ends as shown in Fig. 1. By this construction, not only will the pin ends be automatically spread to hold it in place, but when in place the pin will prevent the block from rocking or rotating and binding the rod 1. The pin will also hold the block in the bracket against vertical escape. By this construction all endwise strain on the pin is prevented since the block cannot slide longitudinally in said bracket and by relieving the pin of this strain, the efiective life of the pin is lengthened.

While I have shown my invention as applied to a bracket for holding a coupler release rod, manifestly it is not limited to the particular construction or use herein shown, but may be used for supporting pipes or other similar devices, all of which I deem equivalents of what I term a rod. By the construction shown it is apparent that the block cannot be placed in the bracket in any position but the right one in which the ends of the pin passage through said block will I ing therefrom and without avoiding the scope of the following claims.

What I claim is:

1. A device for supporting a revoluble rod comprising a bracket adapted for attachment to an element and provided with spaced apart walls, one of said walls having an aperture therein with the other of said walls having a pair of apertures therein, a keeper block positioned between said walls so as to retain the rod therebetween, said keeper block provided with a passageway registering with the first mentioned aperture wlnch extends part way through the block, said keeper block also provided with a pair of branch passageways registering with said pair of apertures and which branch passageways converge and intersect with the first mentioned passageway to form a wedge in line with the latter, and

a split pinto retain the block in the bracket the ends of which pin pass through said apertures and said passageways whereby said pin prevents binding of the block upon the rod by preventing the block from rotating in said bracket.

2. A device for supporting a revoluble rod comprising a bracket adapted for attachment to an element and provided with spaced apart walls, one of said walls having an aperture therein with the other of said walls having a pair of conical apertures the-rein with their larger diameters adjacent the first mentioned wall, a keeper block positioned between said walls so asto retain the rod therebetween, said keeper block provided with a passageway registeringwith the first mentioned aperture which extends part way through the block, said keeper block also provided with a pair of branch passageways to an element and provided with spaced apart walls, one of said walls having an aperture therein with the other ofsaid walls having a pair of apertures therein, a keeper block positioned between said walls so as toretain the rod therebetween, said keeper block pro-- vided with a passageway registering with the first mentioned aperture which extends p art way through the block, said keeper block also provided with a pair of branch passageways registering with said pair of apertures which branch passageways converge and inv tersect with the first mention-edpassageway to form a wedge in line therewith, and a split pin to retain the block in the bracket, the ends of which pass through said apertures and said passageways whereby said pin prevents binding of the block upon the rod by preventing the block from rotating in said bracket, the contours of the engaging surfaces of the block and one of said walls being difierent from the contours of the engaging surfaces of the block and the other of said walls, whereby the block cannot be improperly placed between the walls of the bracket.
