April 7, 1942. P. BROWNSON ET AL BUNDLE PIQKER Filed Oct. '7, 1940 m J J a mA a f5 m m Patented Apr. 7, 1942 Y OFFICE BUNDLE PICKER Percy Brownson and Herman A. Keely, Hastings, Minn.

Application October 7, 1940, Serial No. 360,112

7 Claims.

This invention relatesto a device particularly adapted for picking up grain bundles, and depositing them in upright position on the ground.

Among the particular objects of the invention is to provide a device to be worn upon the hand of the user and in which the lifting strain in picking up a bundle is borne from the wrist of the user instead from the fingers. A further object is to receive means for adjustably securing the device upon the hand and wrist of the wearer, and means for holding lifting members in separated position and efficiently braced.

These and other objects will be apparent from the specification and claims taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device;

Figure 2 is a side elevation of the device secured in position on the hand and wrist of the wearer;

Figure 3 is a front view of the device, and

Figure 4 is a section on the line 44 of Figure 3.

The device comprises a gauntlet member A as of leather, adapted to receive and be fastened upon the hand and wrist of a user as shown in Figure .2. The device is adapted for use for either the right or left hand of the wearer. The gauntlet has an opening 3 on one side to receive the thumb, in the illustration shown the opening being on the left hand side of the gauntlet to receive the right hand thumb. A similar device is used for the left hand the only difference being that the thumb opening is at the right side of the gauntlet.

The gauntlet is split at its rear side to permit a regulated fastening of the gauntlet around the hand and wrist. The gauntlet is adapted to be secured around the hand and wrist by means of the straps 4 and 5. The strap-'4 is secured around the upper end of the gauntlet and the strap 5 around the lower or wrist enclosing end of the gauntlet. The straps 4 and 5 are adjustable to tighten the gauntlet to the hand and wrist by means of the usual buckle 6 secured upon one side by the gauntlet and receiving the free end of the strap projecting from the other side of the gauntlet as shown in Figure 1.

A pick-up member B is supported by the wrist portion of the gauntlet as shown in the drawing. This pick-up member is in the form of a double fork. The pick-up member includes a cross rod 1 extending around the front side of the strap 5 and anchored to the strap by flaps 8 having snap connection 9 with the strap. The

rod 1 is bent'upwardly along the sides of the gauntlet and passes through eyelets [0 formed upon the ends of a cross rod H, said rod being secured under the strap as by rivets I3. The fork rods terminate beyond the eyelets ID in the fork tines I2 which tines are curved upwardly and forwardly above the front of the gauntlet.

In use the gauntlet is secured upon the hand and wrist of the wearer as illustrated in Figure 2, with the fingers of the wearer extending beyond the top of the gauntlet allowing freedom of movement of the fingers. The gauntlet is firmly fastened on the hand and wrist of the wearer by the supporting straps.

Inpicking up a bundle the tines are forced into the bundle by the fingers of the user. The bundle is then lifted and moved to the place of deposit. The bundle is positioned in upright position on the ground, the tines then being released from the bundle by the pressure of the fingers against the bundle.

By means of the fixed support of the lifting forks on the wrist strap 5, the entire lifting strain is brought upon the wrist of the wearer relieving the wearers fingers of any lifting strain, and leaving the fingers free for most efficient manipulation of the bundle. The cross rod I! connecting and forming guides for the side rods of the forks holds the forks sides separated and prevents any squeezing of the fingers. The lifting forks may be removed from the gauntlet by loosening the flaps 8 and sliding the forks sides through the eylets H).

We claim:

1. A device of the class described comprising a gauntlet adapted to encircle the hand and wrist of the wearer, means for securing said gauntlet on the hand and Wrist behind the wearers fingers consisting of strap means at the wrist end of the gauntlet, a lifting device comprising a cross rod securely connected with said wrist strap, said rod connecting with side rods extending forwardly along the sides of the gauntlet and fork tines projecting outwardly above and adjacent the gauntlet.

2. The combination of claim 1, and means forming a separable connection between said forked member and the gauntlet.

3. The combination of claim 1, and a cross rod connecting and holding separated the side bars of said forked member adjacent the end of the gauntlet opposite the wrist portion of the gauntlet.

4. A device of the class described comprising an anchor member constructed to encircle the wrist of a user, a pick-up member comprising a fork supported on the wrist portion of the said anchoring member, said fork extending along the sides of said anchoring member and terminating in spaced apart forwardly and rearwardly curved tines projecting from the end of said anchor member opposite its wrist portion.

5. A device of the class described comprising a gauntlet to encircle the hand and wrist of a wearer, means for anchoring the wrist portion of the gauntlet, a lift fork anchored upon the wrist portion of the gauntlet and formed with side bars extending forwardly along the side of the gauntlet and said side bars being loosely supported upon the sides of the gauntlet and terminating in outwardly and rearwardly curved tines projecting beyond the outer end of the gauntlet.

6. A device of the class described comprising a gauntlet adapted to enclose the hand and wrist of a wearer, means for securing said gauntlet upon the hand behind a wearers fingers and upon the wrist, a lift device comprising a rod anchored to the wrist portion of the gauntlet and connected side rods loosely supported upon the sides of the gauntlet, said rods terminating in outwardly and. rearwardly curved tines projecting beyond the outer end of the gauntlet.

'7. A device of the class described comprising an anchoring member construction to encircle the wrist of a user, strap means carried by said member and encircling the wrist to secure the anchoring member in encircling position, a pick up fork including a cross bar carried by said strap means, said cross bar being formed with the connected side bars extending along opposite sides of the anchor member and terminating in forwardly and downwardly bent tines, and means loosely supporting the side bars to the anchor member.
