Description

Q c R A M L l July m, 1951 S G N O T Filed Aug. 7, 1946 INVENTOR. JOHN L. MARCO BY ATTORNEY Patented July 10, 1951 TONGS John L. Marco, Flushing, N. Y., assignor to Good man-Kleiner Co., 1110., New York, N. Y., a corporation of New York Application August 7, 1946, Serial No. 688,990

1 Claim. 1

This invention relates to tongs.

Broadly, it is an object of my invention to provide tongs of simple and inexpensive construction bent so that a large variety of articles can be picked up.

More particularly, it is an object of my invention to provide tongs which can pick up hot and cold objects with ease without the danger of dropping such objects and without the danger of burning the fingers of the user.

For a fuller understanding of the nature and objects of my invention reference is had to the following detailed description in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a top view,

Figure 2 is a sectional view taken through line 2-2 of Figure 1, and

Figure 3 is a section taken through line 33 of Figure 2.

Referring to the drawings, numeral I represents the tongs made of two pieces of heavy wire I I and I2 flattened, bent and crossed at approximately the central part, as shown at I3, providing a pair of handles having finger pieces I4 and I5 covered with rubber tubing. The opposite ends I6 are bent at approximately a 45 angle to wire II and I2, as shown at Figure 2. Ends I6 are also bent in opposite directions at approximately the central portions providing a wide opening I! in order to permit various types and shapes of articles to be picked up. The extreme ends I8 have the inside or meeting portions flattened and are bent outward and are serrated at the flattened portions, as shown at I9. This permits the user to pick up thin or fine articles Without the danger of dropping such articles. Ends I6 are covered with rubber tubing leaving the extreme ends l8 exposed, as shown in the drawing. The rubber covered ends 16 permit the tongs to pick up and hold delicate and other types of articles without the danger of slipping because of the frictional character of the rubber. Wires II and I2 have aligned holes at the central flattened portion I3 and a rivet 20 is passed through such holes permitting the parts to pivot. The rubber tubing covering the fingerpieces I4 and I5 prevent the fingers from being burnt when the tongs are immersed in hot water to pick up bottles or other articles that might be in the hot water.

The 45 angle bend of the ends I6 facilitates the picking up of a great many articles both hot and cold.

It is obvious that various changes and modifications may be made in the details of construction without departing from the general spirit of the invention.

I claim:

Tongs of the character described comprising two crossed round wire pivoted members of substantially uniform cross-section, said pivoted members flattened at approximately the central part, a pair of opposed finger pieces covered with rubber tubing at one end of each of said pivoted members, the end opposite said finger pieces of said pivoted members bent in an outward direction to said pivoted members and then bent at approximately their central portions in opposite directions providing a widened opening at said central portions for holding articles, said bent ends covered with rubber tubing, the extreme ends tapered towards the distal ends, said extreme ends bent outwardly and having serrated flattened inside portions for picking up small articles, said inside serrated portions being slightly curved away from each other, said bent ends and said widened opening and said serrated tapered ends bent at approximately a 45 angle to said pivoted members;
