THOMAS M. TURNER, OF CINCINNATI, OHIO.

PACKAGE-CARRIER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 270,917, dated January 23, 1883,

Application filed May 22, 1882. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, THOMAS M. TURNER, of the city of Cincinnati, in the county of Hamilton and State of Ohio, have invented a new generally been of a somewhat complicated construction, and therefore incapable of ready application to a package, liable to become unadjusted when in use, and comparatively expensive. They involve, in many varieties, the use of straps and buckles, applied to a package in the ordinary manner, in connection with a handle or carrying device. In other forms they employ, as a substitute for such straps and buckles, twine or cord, in connection with an upper and lower bar, between which the package is secured, one of which bars is provided with a suitable handle or carrier and afastening device. One of the simpler forms consists of a wooden handle,-with wire loops depending therefrom, in combination with a cord, which passes through the loops in the operation of wrapping and secures the handle to the package, whereby the package is tied and is alsoprovided with a handle for convenience in carrying. The disadvantages of this latter class,to which myinvention more nearly relates, are that the handle cannot be applied except in combination with the wrapping-cord, and is incapable of adjustment to a package after the same has been tied. Further, in securing such handle to a package the tying material must be adjusted in certain arbitrary wraps to adapt itself to the loops of the device, thus renderingits employment with many shapes and sizes of bundles impracticable.

The object of my invention is to provide for a package tied in any manner with cord or like tying material a carrier of simple construction, which may be readily applied to any single wrap of such package after the same has been tied.

My invention consists in a rigid handle, constructed preferably. of iron, with depending books at each end, adapted to be hooked beneath and secured to the wrap to whichit is to be adjusted; also, in a flanged projection or knob, in connection with and formed on the base-support of said carrier, connecting the hooking devices around which the wrap of the package is thrown or twisted previous to the engagement of the booking devices therewith, to hold the carrier in firm adjustment to the package and to prevent its longitudinal displacement on the wrap.

1n. the drawings, Figure 1 representsa side "iew of my carrier, of a construction which for general purposes I prefer.' Fig. 2 represents a like view of a modification thereof, which will be found sufticient for small or lightpackages; and Fig. 3 represents one of the methods in which my carrier may be applied to a tied package. Figs. 4 and 5 represent the application of my carrier, in combination with a length of tying material, to a package not previously tied.

A represents the handle part of my carrier, ofcon venientsize and shape. Depending therefrom in the same plane at each end are spiral hooking devices a a, flaring outwardly and connected together at or near their bottom portions bya base-rod, B,running in the direction of the length of the handle portion. This rod affords additional strength to the carrier and serves also as a support for the booking devices. -Upon this rod, preferably in the center of the upper face, is a projection or knob, b, constructed with a flanged top to prevent the escape of the tying material when the same is adjusted around it.

The carrier above described, and as shown in Fig. 1, is the one I prefer to employin carrying bulky or weighty packages, or packages in which the tying material has been loosely applied.

One of the methods of applying my device in such cases is as follows: The carrier is brought on a line with the wrap of the tied package to which it is to beadjusted, the wrap is thrown over the'central flanged projection or knob, and the portion of the wrap on either side of the projection or knob is introduced into and heldby the hooking devices. This arrangement is shown in Fig. 3. The cord, being placed over the flangedprojection or knob, is tightened and 'isalso thrown out of alignment with the portions of the wrap introduced into the hooking devices. By these means the the tying material is increased, the friction,

therefore, between them augmented, and the tendency of the carrier to slide longitudinally along the wrap, is prevented.

I may, after placing the wrap over the projection or knob, turn the carrier once or more, as may be necessary, and twist the wrap therearound, and more effectually prevent any longitudinal displacement of the carrier. This may be desirable with packages where the tying material has not been drawn taut.

With small and light packages, and with 1 packages which have been tautly secured, af-

fording but little slack cord for the application of the carrier, a device dispensing-with the flanged projection or knob, as shown in Fig. 2, will generally be found sufficient.

My carrier may be applied, in connection with a length .of tying material permanently attached to one of its hooking devices, to secure a package not previously tied, and serve also as a carrier therefor, or to fasten in one bundle two or more packages separately tied. To do this I place the carrier on the package in the position which it is to assume when tied, and apply the tying material thereto in the usual manner to form a singlelongitudinal and lateral wrap. The lateral wrap I twist around the flanged projection or knob at the top and secure the free end of the tying material to the hooking device, opposite to the one to which it is permanently attached, by a loop-knot or other suitable means. This application is shown in Figs. 4 and 5 of the drawings.

Instead of the flanged projection or knob on the base-support B, around which the wrap of tying material is thrown to prevent the sliding of the carrier thereon, I may employ a lug or projection or knob having a longitudinal slit or recess, in which the tying material may be placed or I may dispense with the projection or knob altogether and in place thereof construct the carrier with a hooking device at right angles to the center of the base-rod B, to engage with a wrap of the package transversely to the one with which the hooking devices engage for the same purpose.

Ido notlimitmyself to the particular construction of carrier shown and described. Any form of handle, with devices capable of adjustment to a single wrap of the tying material of a package, with or without means for preventing the longitudinal displacement of the car-' rier, will be efficient for the purposes of my invention. Nor do I limit myself to the particular construction ofthe hooking devices, nor to their number or their position,as shown. They may be of any desirable construction, and may extend at right angles to the base-support B, on either alternate or both sides thereof, or in any other suitable manner.

I claim as my invention 1. A package-carrier consisting of a rigid handle, hooking devices depending from its ends, adapted to be hooked beneath and secured to any single wrap of a package after the same has been tied, and a base-support connecting said hooking devices.

2. Apackage-carrier consisting of a handle, hooking devices capable of being adjusted to a single wrap of the tying material of a tied package, a base-plate connecting and suppprting the hooking devices, and a flanged projection or knob on said base-plate, around which such wrap may be thrown or twisted to prevent longitudinal displacement of the carrier or the wrap.
