Feb. 13, 1934. c. A. ROWLEY CABLE TERMINAL Filed Jan. 22, 19:2

'INVEN R. @y- A TTORNEX V sembled with the Patented Feb. 13, 1934 UNITED STATES PATENT oFFrcE 1,946,713 CABLE TERMINAL Charles A. Rowley, East Orange, N. J. Application January 22, 1932. Serial No. 588,04:

1 Claim.

This invention relates to terminals for cables and more. particularly to means for facilitating the attaching of such terminals to cables.

Terminals of the type herein described are widely used on cables, for example, in the ignition systems of automobiles. Heretofore, it has been the practice to crimp the terminal on to the end of a cable by employing a tool especially designed for such a purpose; and the use of a special tool is objectionable for there are many situations requiring the attaching of terminals when the tool is not available.

It is, therefore, an object of this invention to provide a terminal which is simple in construction and which may be readily attached to cables without necessitating the use of a special tool.

A further object is the provision of a terminal having a. section which may be depressed to hold the terminal firmly on a cable.

These and other advantageous objects, which will later appear, are accomplished by the simple and practical construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and exhibited in the accompanying drawing, forming part hereof, and in which:

Figure 1 is a. my invention,

Figure 2 is another perspective view of the form shown in Figure 1,

Figure 3 is a perspective view of a blank from which the terminal shown in Figures 1 and 2, is made, v

Figures 4 and 5 are perspective views of another form of the invention,

Figure 5a is a perspective view of an insulator used in connection with the terminal shown in Figures 4 and 5,

Figure 6 is a perspective view of one form of perspective of the terminal asinsulator.

Referring to the drawing, in Figure 3 is shown a blank 18 having atone extremity an aperture 19, and intermediate its length notches 20 on op- .posite edges. At the opposite extremity the blank Elias a. panof proiections 21 adapted to enter the notches 20 when the blank is bent to form a cy ical member 15 as shown in Figure 2. The blanksis also slitted to provide a narrow strip 22. In Figural is shown a cable 16 having a portion 17 of the wire exposed and of the cable. A terminal made from a blank 18 is placed over the end of the cable and contacts the exposedwirel'l, the section 22 being forced into the fabric of thewcable by means of any con-. venient tool to securelyhold the terminal in place.

InFigur-es4and5lsshownaterminalhaving parallel slits to bent over the end a fork31, which is integral withthe cylindrical portion 32, which has a portion 34 forced into the cable to firmly hold the terminal thereon. In Figure 6 is shown the terminal and cable 33 assembled with an insulator 35, as shownin Figure 5a. r It will be seen that in the several modifications disclosed, the terminals are held on the cables by the depressed sections biting into the fabric of the cable, and obviously no special tool is necessary to force the portions 22 or 34, into the fabric. As a result, the terminals described herein may be readily attachedto cables in any situation, as there is always convenient some instrument, such as a nail, by means of which the portions 22 or 34, may be forced into the fabric to hold the terminals securely on the cables.

The connectors are of such shape as to lend themselves readily to manufacture-by the use of Patent, is: c

'A device for making a cable terminal comprising a flat substantially rectangular metal sheet having an aperture at one end and a pair 01* spaced projections at the other end, said sheet having a notch in each or its side edges to receive said projections, said sheet having, two spaced provide a. section which maybe readily forced out ofsthe plane of the sheet.
