DAVID T. COOPER, OF CLINTON, LOUISIANA.
BALE-TIE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 263,864, dated. September 5, 1882.
Application filed May 27, 1882.
Be it known that I, DAVID THOMAS COOPER, of Clinton, in the parish of East Feliciana and State of Louisiana, have invented a new and useful lmprovenientin Bale-Ties, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being bad to the annexed. drawings, forming part of this specification.
This invention relates to cotton-bale ties in which abutton is made to engage with corresponding slots in the ends of the tie. Such a button has heretoforebeen formed by means of a plate having rectangular slots cut in opposite ends thereof to form a back, a face, and
a shank all in one piece. With the slots thus made of rectangular form-that is, with parallel sidesthe ends of the tie must be bent nearly together, which is difficult to do when the tie is around a bale, in order that they shall pass the back of the button in the operation of engaging them with the shank.
To facilitate the insertion of the back into the slots of the tie, 1 construct the back with its upper surface inclined upward toward the shank, instead of being parallel with the under surface of the face, as heretofore constructed, so that when the point of the long end of the back is made to enter the slot in the under end of the tie the inclined upper surface of the back will cause the button to slip entirely into position by simply pressing on the face of the button.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a plan -view of a portion of a tie, showing my invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the same; and Fig. 3 is a side elevation, partly in section, of the same, showing the parts in position for being fastened.
The bale-tie A is provided its ends B B.. The slots to in the end B are The f, under the face g.
with slots at a in (No model.)
' slots a in the end B are to be made one and one-half inch apart, extending from near the end of the tie toward the center for the distance of two feet.
The fastener or button C is made of a single piece of metal of a thickness to correspond to the width of the slots to a, and is constructed i by cutting slots 61 d in the ends thereof in such manner as to form a shanlce. and a back, The slots at d are so cut that the under surface of the face will be at right angles to the shank a, while the backf will be shorter on one side of the shank than on the other, and the upper surface thereof will incline upward toward the shank.
The slots'a in the tie are to be made ofjust sutficient length to admit the back of the button, so that when once the latter is in position it will not accidentally become displaced during shipment. The slots at are slightly longer than the former,and in engaging them with the button the longer end of the back fis first to be placed therein, and the face is to be prized with the hand to force the said back to pass entirely through the slot. The tension of the tie is thus thrown upon the shank, where it is held by the inclined upper surface of the
