`UNITED STATES PATENT EEICE.,

HENRY B. THOMPSON, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, ASSIGNOR TO ISAAC TOWN SEND, OF SAME PLAGE.

TENT-SLIP.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 234,896, dated November 30, 1880.

Application flied May 5, issn. (No monti.)

To all whom t may concern:

Beit known that I, HENRY B. THOMPSON, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Telit-Slips, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to the slips connected with the cords or guys by which the tension of the canvas is regulated to suit damp or dry weather.

The slips in present use are made of wood, and are heavy and cumbersome, and are liable to break and to slacken on the cords.

My invention consists of a metallic slip, made of a tubular form, partially open on one side to admit the cord or guy, and provided on the opposite side with an opening through which the end ofthe cord is passed and knotted. The slip thus constructed is durable, not liable to slacken on the cords, and can be 2o readily adjusted, and occupies a small space when packed for transportation.

Reference is had tothe accompan yin g drawings, in which- Figure I is a perspective View of my rnetallic tent-slip. Fig. II is a longitudinal section of the same. Fig. III is a perspective view of a tent with the metallic slips in position on the guys.

The metal slip A, Figs. I and II, consists ot 3o a cylindrical tube with a portion of one side, from the points a to b, removed or made open to admit the cord leading directly from the canvas to and around the stake in the ground. An opening, C, at right angles to the bore of 3 5 the tube, is also made in the metal at the opposite end, b, of the slip, through whichA the end of the cord leading from the stake passes and is secured.

It will be observed, on referring to Fig. III, that the cord D, leadingfrom the canvas, passes 4o through the tubular portion of the slip at the point a and out through the end, thus forming a hitch, E, which maintains the proper tension on the guys. The cord then passes around the stake or peg and up through the opening C, at the opposite end of the slip, where it is secured with a knot, e.

The tension is increased on the guys by simply increasing),` the angle of the hitch E.

This is accomplished by turning the tubular 5o end upward until the slip assumes a right or obtuse an gie position with the cord D. To slacken the cord the tubular end ofthe slip is turned downward, allowing the cord to slide through.

The shape of the metal slips enables them to be made light in weight, while at the same time the requisite strength is obtained. A set of these slips for a wall-tent or y will weigh about iive ounces, while a set of the ordinary 6o wooden slips will weight about twenty-five ounces.

IVhat I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The tubular tent-slip A, openedlon one side to admit the cord D, and provided on the opposite side with an opening, G, through which the end of the cord passes and is knotted, operating substantially as shown and described.
