'END CONNECTING DEVICE FOR ROPE TRAGES.

END-CONNECTING DEVICE. FOR ROPE'TRACES.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 290,454, dated December 18, 1883. Application filed September 21, 1883. (No model.)

To aZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLES R. MILLER, of the village of Lansingburg, county of Bensselaer, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Devices for the End Connections of Rope Traces, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to that class of devices which are used to connect the ends of rope traces to the hames of animal-harness, and also to the whiffletrees of street-cars or vehicles,

my invention being more particularly adapted for use in connection with heavy harness.

My invention consists, as will be fully detailed hereinafter, in the combination of a cylinder made to have one closed end and centrally divided longitudinally in two parts, which unite by means of recesses and engaging-flanges, to inclose the end of the rope when inserted, ribs encircling the cylinder interior to grasp the rope, a bolt and nut to connect the two half-cylinders, and to also hold the rope within the latter, and with the ends of the cylinder-halves drawn down to a wire form, and by means of engaging hook terminations and notches adapted to produce an eye for attachment.

My invention also consists in the combination, with a cylinder centrally divided longitudinally and adapted to receive and secure an inclosed rope-trace end, with the half-cylinders at the closed end adapted to produce an eye, of a plate on one side of the connected half-cylinders to give the latter a flat bearingsurface where the device attaches to the hame, as will be designated in the claims.

Accompanying this specification, and forming a part of it, is a sheet of drawings contain ing five figures illustrating my invention, with the same designation of parts by letter-reference used in all of them, of which- Figure 1 shows a perspective of the device containing my invention, illustrated as secured to the front end of the rope trace, and also as attached to the hame. Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal vertical section of the device and bearing-plate. Fig. 3 is a perspective of the separated halves of the cylinder; Fig. 4, a cross vertical section taken on the line a; m of Fig. 2,- and Fig. 5 is a side elevation of the device made without the bearing-plate and outcurve given to the eye extension, but in the division-line of the half-cylinder O, and

the letter R a flange produced on the joining edgeof the cylinder G ,'for connecting them at their sides and ends.

The letters (1 (2 indicate interior ribs in part encircling the interior surfaces of the cylinder when the parts are united, and B a bolt provided with a head and threaded nut to unite the two half-cylinders.

At a and a the ends of the parts C and C are drawn down to a wire form, and curved to produce at D D in combination with the interlocking notches n and n", the end eye, A.

The letter P indicates a bearing-plate produced on one of the half-cylinders, to adapt the device where in contact with the collar 0 to be inparallel engagement therewith, said plate, where joinedto the eye A, as well as the latter, being made with an outcurve, J for its passage around the contour of the collar to attach to the hame H. As illustrated at Fig. 5, the plate P and the outcurve J given to the eye A are omitted, the other parts remaining the same. When the device is attached to the whiffletrees at the rear end of the rope trace, the plate and outcurve are not used.

The two parts 0 and Ofiwhen connected, produce the cylinder M, the open end of which (indicated at E) is made to have an outwardlyflaring edge, (designated at 0,) the object and purpose of which construction is to prevent the edge of the end from cutting or chafing the rope N.

With the parts thus made, the trace-rope is inserted between the half-cylinders O and G with its end in abutting contact with the closed end E The parts 0 and O are brought togetherso that the flange R is within the recess R. Thebolt B is passed through opposite openings made in the half-cylinders and the intermediately-plaeed rope. The threaded nut is then screwed onto the proj eeting end of the bolt and the parts are drawn together, the curved ends D and D", withtheir notches n a", in engaging interlocking contact, and the interior ribs, (Z (Z, being by pressure bedded into the rope. The longitudinal side engagement of the flanges prevents torsional displacement of the parts. The ribs, the bolt, and the engagement of flange and recess transversely at E secure the parts against longitudinal rupture, and the connected notches n n in the curved ends D and D, being arranged in the side of the eye A, give strength and security to the latter.

, Thus made, a substantial device is produced for attachment to the end of rope traces for connecting them, and which is used in the same manner,whether the plate I is used or omitted.

These devices or trace-end fasteners are preferably made of cast metal and finished by hand for connection.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s

1. In a rope-traceend-fastening device, the combination of two half-cylinders constructed to connect longitudinally and transversely by means of a flange on one of them and a recess to receive said flange on the other, encircling ribs on the interior of both of the half-cylinders, a headed bolt constructed to pass through both of thelatter and the intermediately-placed rope, with the prolonged ends of the half-cylinders made of a wire from beyond their cylindrical union, and curved to meet and engage by means of interlocking notches, to produce a connecting-eye, as shown and described.

2. In a rope-trace-end-fastening device, the combination of thelongitudinally-divided cylinder M, with its two parts constructed to attach, to secure the rope end and produce the
