2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented Oct. 14, 1947 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,429,029 ELECTRIC FENCE BRACKET Perry A. Newbern, Greene, Iowa 7 Application September 11, 1945, Serial No. 615,569
2 Claims. (Cl. 248-205) My invention relates to an electric fence bracket, and particularly to attaching such a bracket to a steel fence post of T design, the improvement of which over the prior art will be indicated in the following specification and claims.
The bracket of the instant invention is made of steel spring wire, the principal object of said wire being its use as a support to be utilized in the construction of what is known as an electrical fence by attaching the said bracket to a steel fence post, preferably of a T-shape design.
An object of this invention is to provide such an electric fence bracket superior in design and efiiciency to any such article comprehended in the prior art, said bracket being adapted for use with the so-called knob-type insulator or the like.
Another object of my invention is to provide such a bracket which is firmly attached to the fence post so constructed as to facilitate positive and adequate insulation and avoid losses in efficiency which heretofore have been incurred.
A further object is to provide such a device of simple, compact, inexpensive and rugged construction.
Still another object is to provide a bracket for a steel fence post which may be afiixed quickly and easily.
The objects and advantages of this invention will be apparent from this specification and from the further description illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which like reference characters refer to the same parts throughout the views, and in which:
Figure 1 is a top view illustrating one embodiment of my invention;
Figure 2 is a side view showing the insulator with bracket rigidly secured in position by a cotter key or pin;
Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view of insulator with bolt to secure assembly;
Figure 4 shows a bottom view of the insulator;
Figure 5 is a top view of a further embodiment of the invention showing the application of the invention to the reverse side of a T-shape'd fence P Figure 6 is a side view of the embodiment of Figure 5;
Figure 7 is a detailed view of the hook-end of Figure 5; and
Figure 8 is a side view of the washer at the bottom of the insulator thereof.
In the drawings, H indicates an insulator having a, bolt l2 inserted therethrough having a nut l3 on the lower end thereof for the purpose of securing the washer [4 against insulator loop 15 of insulator wire l6 which has a spring loop I! consisting of one or more turns in the form of a coil spring.
The insulator wire I6 terminates in crooked end 18 for wrapping and holding securely to edge of web I9 of the fence post 20.
Ihe insulator wire I6 is further provided with a U-shaped section 2| for insertion into cotter pin loop 22 to be locked therein by cotter pin 23 to secure said insulator wire l6 and holding wire 24 together.
The holding wire 24 is provided with bracing springs 25 of one or more turns in the form of a coil spring. One or more turns of the bracing springs 25 bear against the flat surface 26 of fence post 20. The crooked ends 21 of holding wire 24 are for securing the wire around the edge of web 19 of post 20.
If it is desired to attach the insulator to the opposite side of the fence post from that shown in Figure 1, the embodiment shown in Figure 5 may be used for such purpose. In this embodiment a hook-end wire 28 is used to secure the insulator H to fence post 20. The hooked ends 29 of hook-end wire 28 are adapted to engage eyelets 30 of securing wire 3| which also has cotter pin loop 22 for engaging the bent hook-end wire 28 by means of cotter pin 23.
The foregoing description of the invention is for illustrative purposes only and it is understood that some modifications may be made therein within the scope and spirit of the appended claims.
What I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is:
1. An insulator holder comprising two separable parts formed of spring wire, each of said parts having a spring coil section and attaching portions adapted to partly surround a member to which the holder is being attached, said coil sections of the respective parts formed therein to have their axes when the parts are connected to the member lie substantially parallel to the axis of the member and their sides thereof being adapted to engage the front of the member to fulcrum thereupon, means provided upon at least one of the parts and extending outwardly from a spring section for the attachment of an insulator thereto, and means cooperating with the parts for locking the parts together when they have been wrapped about the member and sprung toward each other.
2. An insulator holder comprising two sep- 3 arable parts formed of spring wire, each of said parts having a, spring coil section and attaching portions adapted to partly surround a member to which the holder is being attached, said coil sections of the respective parts formed therein 5 to have their axes when the parts are connected to the member lie substantially parallel to the axis of the member and their sides thereof being adapted to engage the front of the member to fulcrum thereupon, means provided upon at least 10 one of the parts and extending outwardly from a spring section for the attachment of an insulator thereto, and means cooperating with the parts for locking the parts together when they have been wrapped about the member and sprung 15 toward each other, said locking means comprising the provision of a cotter pin loop upon one of the parts, and a cotter pin extending into the loop and between the parts.
