DAM/EL J. @FFEY A TTORNEY.

Patented Apr. 25, 1950 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE LINE HOLDER Daniel J. Cofiey, Bronx, N. Y.

Application January 17, 1947, Serial No. 722,547

3 Claims. 1

This invention relates to line holders or devices for connecting lines to blocks or the like used in building construction so that the line may be extended above a preceding layer of blocks or the like to provide a guide for the new layer.

It is an object of the present invention to eliminate the necessity of the mason having to drive a nail into a block each time that the line is advanced upwardly to the next station and to eliminate any damage which may be done to the block as a result of the nailing of the same into the block, and wherein the device is simply lifted from one layer to the next.

It is another object of the invention to provide a line holder arrangement wherein a nail is unnecessary for fixing the line to the block and to eliminate the necessity of nail holes which are difiicult to properly fill, and which if not properly filled renders the building wall susceptible to water and other leakage.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a simple device which will fit over a wall of a building block in tight engagement therewith and wherein the string can be extended between the device and the block and be retained against displacement by being anchored to the hook formation on the holder and wherein the line can be raised from layer to layer without having to be unwound each time or disconnected from its holding device.

For other objects and for a better understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following detail description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view of one of the devices which is adapted to be spring clamped to the top of a building block,

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a wall under construction and where two devices have been fitted on separated blocks resting upon the top layer of the wall and wherein there is an intermediate block with a device on it serving to prevent the line from sagging or moving laterally inwardly or outwardly,

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary perspective view of a modified form of the invention wherein the hook for fixing the line is formed by a struck up operation and wherein this struck up device can be used at the intermediate station to take up the slack and prevent sagging of the line,

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary View of one end of the device which is modified with the line intermediate its length extended over the struck up portion to retain the same from sagging and against horizontal displacement,

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary view of the modified device with the line fastened thereto as when the holder is used at the end of the line.

Referring now to the Figures 1 and 2, I represents one of the holders or devices which is adapted to be fitted to a building block. This device has two intermediate portions 2 and 2' which extend downwardly and are adapted to fit over the sides of a wall of a hollow or ribbed building block. These engaging portions 2 and 2' are spring pressed slightly inwardly and with the device being made of spring material, they will expand slightly and when finally in place will engage tightly with the wall faces of the blocks so as to be in clamping engagement therewith. The device has folded down ends 3 and 3 which also are arranged so that they will spring to some extent and to fit down over the end faces of the block to have tight engagment therewith. On these depending ends are respectively hooks 4 and 4, to which the tightened line is fixed. Lines 5 and 5 are extended between blocks 6 and E resting upon a top layer of the blocks of a wall under construction. Each of these blocks have partitions 1 therein which are approximately two inches in thickness and between the partitions are openings 8. The faces of the partitions serve as surfaces with which the portions 2 or 2' engage. The lines 5 and 5 extend between the blocks 6 and 6 and are disposed under the end corners of the devices and retained against displacement by the tight fitting end projections 3 and 3'. With the device in place the line will be held against the edges of the block and against axial displacement by being wound upon hooks 4 or 4. The line will extend across the full width of the device I and will be frictionally retained thereunder against vertical or lateral displacement.

Referring now to Fig. 3, there is shown a modified form of hook or twig 9 or 9 which is struck out of portion 3 or 3' and folded up and below which there is provided a large opening ID. This struck out portion serves as a hook in the same manner as the hook l or 4' and will serve as means to which the line is fixed. The hook formation 9 or 9 is made small so that line can be pulled up from the opening IE1 and over it to take up the sag or slack.

In Fig. 4, there is shown the line extended over the twig formation 9 as when the holder is used at an intermediate station to tak up the slack or sag. In Fig. 5, there is shown the line drawn through the holder and fixed to the formation as when the holder is being used at the end of the line.

While various changes may be made in the detail construction, it shall be understood that such changes shall be within the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claims.

I claim:

1. A line holder for building wall construction which comprises a flat portion of sheet material adapted to rest on the top of a ribbed building block, depending portions extending from the top fiat portion adapted to have clamping and frictional engagement with the outer and inner walls of the building block to prevent the vertical displacement of the holder, said portions being located at the sides and ends of the flat portion and the end portions extending the full width of the flat portion and serving to respectively retain lines against displacement along the forward and real? edges of the building block, and fastening projections on the ends of the holder for finally securing the line.

2; A, line holder for building wall construction which comprises a hat portion of sheet material adapted. tourest on top of a ribbed building block, depending portions extendin from the top fiat portion and adapted to have frictional and clamping engagement with the outer and inner Walls oft-he building block to prevent the vertical displacement of the holder, said portions being located at; thesides and ends of the flat portion and the end; portions serving to respectively retain 11116 a ainst displacement along forward and '4 rearward edges of the building block, and hook like projections extending respectively from the end portions to which th line may be fixed after being extended beneath the holder.

3. A line holder for building wall construction which comprises a fiat portion of sheet material adapted to rest on the top of a ribbed building block, depending port-ions extending from the top fiat portion and adapted to have frictional and clamping engagement with the walls of the building block to prevent the vertical displacement of the holder, said depending portions being located at the sides and ends of th flat portions and the portions at the ends serving to respectively retain the lines against displacement along the forward and rearward edges of the building block, and

twig projections extending upwardly from the top of the fiat portion and adapted to serve when the holder is located intermediate th length of the suspended lines as means for preventing the sagging of the lines and each of said end, portions having an opening beneath the twig pro-- ihe following references are of record in the file of this patent:
