1 Claim.
Thisinvention relates to a clamp for connecting an insulator to a post, the general object of the invention being to provide means of simple construction for easily and quickly attaching an insulator for an electric wire to a steel post.
This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically pointed out in the appended claim.
In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which:
Figure 1 is a fragmentary elevation showing the invention in use on a T-shaped post.
Figure 2 is a top plan view of Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a side view of Figure 1.
Figure 4 is a section on the line 44 of Figure 1.
Figure 5 is a view of the rod forming part of the device.
Figure 6 is a view of the slotted bar.
In these views the numeral I indicates an elongated bar for resting against a part of the post P, this bar having an elongated longitudinally extending slot 2 at one end part and a hole 3 in the other end part, the slot and hole being adapted to receive part of a rod 4 which has been bent into substantially U-shape with one limb longer than the other as shown more particularly in Figure 5. The short leg 4 passes through the hole 3 and the long leg 4" through the slot, with the bight engaging the edge or the stem of the T-shaped post as shown in Figure 2 with the plate resting upon the head of the T. The insulator 5 is placed over the long limb l" of the rod and a washer 6 is placed between the base of the insulator and the slotted part of the bar I and a washer I is placed over the long limb of the bar on the outer end of the insulator and then a winged nut 8 is threaded on the threaded outer end of the limb l" of the bar. A washer 9 and wing nut I are placed on the threaded end of the short limb 4 of the U-shaped bar and by tightening the two nuts the bar is caused to firmly grip the post and to hold the bar against the post with the insulator tightly held on the long limb of the U-shaped bar. As will be seen the device can be placed on any part of the post and can be easily removed when desired and the insulator can be readily replaced by a new one when necessary.
It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of the invention will be readily apparent.
It is to be understood that changes may be made in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim.
Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:
Means, for connecting an insulator to a post comprising a flat bar adapted to engage a part of a post and said bar having a hole in one end and a slot in its other end, a U-shaped rod adapted to have its bight part passed around a part of a post with its ends passing through the hole and the slot in the bar, one limb of the U-shaped rod being longer than the other and both ends of the rod being threaded, the long limb adapted to be passed through a hole in an insulator after said limb has passed through an opening in the bar and nuts on the threaded ends of the rod.
