Abstract

A fastener is connected to a waist belt. A collar is connected to a hose near its working end. The hose is clipped into the fastener. The collar locks the hose onto the belt to enable the worker to haul the hose around using his hips rather than his arms and back.

Description

    CROSS REFERENCE APPLICATIONS
  • This application is a non-provisional application claiming the benefits of provisional application No. 61/077,280 filed Jul. 1, 2008.
  • FIELD OF INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to attaching an end of a hose to a worker's belt in order to drag the hose to a new location.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • The closet known prior art is U.S. Pat. No. 2,388,811 (1945) to Zatko. A welder wears a utility belt. The utility belt has a ring fastened to it. The welder's electric cord is cinched with a tether that includes a snap hook. The snap hook is fastened to the ring on the belt. The welder can drag his cord behind him. Zatko is addressing the convenience of controlling the cord and its electric clamp during the welding operation as he shows in FIG. 1. He does not address the need to drag a cord or hose long distances, with the cord or hose securely attached to the worker's waist at the base of the worker's spine.
  • What is needed in the art is a secure and removable fastening means for a cord or hose end to attach to a worker's belt at the base of his spine to enable dragging a rather cumbersome load across a yard or the like.
  • The present invention solves this long sought need with a work belt having a D ring fastened at the rear/center of the belt. A collar is fastened to the cord/hose end. The cord/hose is snapped into the D ring thereby attaching the collar above the D ring. The worker can apply a strong pressure using his hips to drag the cord/hose from the base of his back.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The main aspect of the present invention is to provide a work belt with a clip and a hose/cord with a collar that slips over the clip to enable pulling the hose/cord via the work belt.
  • Another aspect of the present invention is to provide a multi-diameter fitting for the collar.
  • Another aspect is to provide a shoulder strap option for the waist belt.
  • Another aspect is to provide a multi-purpose work belt with the pulling ring attached.
  • Other aspects of this invention will appear from the following description and appended claims, reference being made to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification wherein like reference characters designate corresponding parts in the several views.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

  • Before explaining the disclosed embodiment of the present invention in detail, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited in its application to the details of the particular arrangement shown, since the invention is capable of other embodiments. Also, the terminology used herein is for the purpose of description and not of limitation.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • Referring first to FIG. 1 the worker 1 is wearing a belt 2 that includes a retaining strap 3. The retaining strap 3 provides a short runway R for a clip on fastener 4 (a D ring is preferred).
  • The garden hose 5 has been fitted with a collar 6 near its working end 7. When the worker walks forward in direction F the hose 5 is dragged behind her by means of the collar 6 wedging against the fastener 4. The runway R provides for a limited angular torque behind the worker 1 as she changes direction. This system allows the worker to use her legs instead of her arms to drag a heavy hose the entire length of the hose 5 even when the hose 5 is full of water as shown. Small fire hoses can be moved by firemen in this same manner.
  • Referring next to FIG. 2 the entire waist drag system is labeled 20. The belt 2 preferably has a buckle 21 that accommodates hook and loop ends 22, 23. Each end 22, can come off the buckle 21 to slip on various tool holsters as seen in FIG. 7.
  • The fastener 4 is a D ring type having a narrowed inner end 44 and an opposing wide inner end 43. A hinge 41 is spring loaded to keep the gate 42 closed.
  • The collar 6 has halves 61, 62 joined by at least one bolt (not shown) with a screw handle(s) 24 to tighten the halves 61, 62 together. The diameter of the hole 63 is slightly smaller than the diameter of the hose 5 so the collar 6 doesn't slip on the hose 5 after installation.
  • Referring next to FIG. 3 the collar assembly 30 consists of halves 61, 62 held together by bolts 31, 32 with nuts 33. A wing style handle 34 or knob 24 (FIG. 2) is optional. The spacer 35 fits in hole 63 to provide a smaller hole 36 suited for extension cords or small air hoses.
  • FIG. 4 shows the hose 5 being placed in hole 63. Bolt 32 has not yet been placed in hole 40 for tightening halves 61, 62 together. Design choice could use hole 40 as a threaded nut to eliminate nuts 33 of FIG. 3.
  • In FIG. 5 the spacer 35 has had extension cord 50 slipped in slot 51 into hole 36. By tightening knob 24 the extension cord 50 is locked into collar assembly 30.
  • Referring next to FIG. 6 shoulder/belt assembly 600 consists of a belt 610 with a strap 3 to hold fastener 4 as in FIG. 2. Shoulder straps 620 can assist a fireman to haul a heavy hose (not shown).
  • Referring next to FIG. 7 the utility belt 70 has an additional ring fastener 72 fastened by a strap 71. A holster 73 is threaded thru end 23 before the buckle 21 is attached. Thus, a tool such as a spray gun could be hung from hook 74.
  • Referring next to FIG. 8 the painter 80 is standing on a ladder to paint the house 82. The belt 2 and collar assembly 30 is supporting hoses 83, 84 which are connected to spray gun 85. The painter 80 could use the holster 73 of FIG. 7 to aid his control of equipment.
  • In FIG. 9 the hose 5 rests in the wider space 43 of fastener 4. But in FIG. 10 no collar is needed for extension cord 50. The fastener uses the wider space 43 to lock onto the strap 3. The narrow space 44 serves to wedge the female cord receptacle 100 therein.
  • Thus, a gardener can haul the hedge clipper extension cord 50 all over the lawn. No collar need be attached to the extension cord.
  • Referring next to FIGS. 11, 12 a collar 1100 has the central hole 1120 which could be fitted with the spacer 35 of FIG. 3. The halves 1101, 1102.
  • A lock means 1105 consists of the flap 1105 connects to half 1101 with its tongue 1107 which snaps into the groove 1106 of half 1102. Not shown are many design equivalents including handles 24 with bolts and/or various equivalent locks. The hinge helps the user to quickly attach the hose without dropping parts on the ground.
  • Referring next to FIGS. 13, 14 15 a sliding collar 1300 consists of a U shaped base 1301 having a semi-circular head 1302 and legs 1306, 1307. Each leg 1306, 1307 has teeth 1308 on which slides the sliding collar half 1304. Spring loaded release buttons 1305 can be squeezed to release the collar half 1304 from teeth 1308, thereby forming the hole 1303. Hole 1303 clasps the hose 1401 with arrows open O and close C indicating the movement of collar half 1304. The spring 1450 biases the release buttons 1305 outbound. Arrows S for squeeze in FIG. 14 show the release buttons 1305 pushed inward to release collar teeth 1600 from base teeth 1308 to enable moving the collar half 1304.
  • In FIG. 16 a hose clamp 1600 has fixed half 1601 with legs 1602, 1603 that slide in channels 1606, 1605 in moving half 1604. A hole 1303 is formed like the hole 1303 in the embodiment shown in FIG. 13. Channels 1605, 1606 have nubs 1617, 1618 serving as pivot points when handles 1610, 1611 are squeezed into each other to the release mode shown by the arrows Release. In the Release mode teeth 1615, 1616 allowing the moving half 1604 to move in either the open or closed position shown by arrows O and C. The locked position shown has the locking teeth 1615, 1616 locked into teeth 1700 at a desired position via the straight shapes of legs 1602, 1603.
  • Although the present invention has been described with reference to preferred embodiments, numerous modifications and variations can be made and still the result will come within the scope of the invention. No limitation with respect to the specific embodiments disclosed herein is intended or should be inferred. Each apparatus embodiment described herein has numerous equivalents.
