SPECIFICATION part of Letters Petent No. 31456 & date& Marsit 31, 1835.
Application filed August 21, 1984.
To all whom it may conccrn:
Be it known that I, LAURENCE Gana, of Shakopee, in the county of Scott and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and use fol Improvements in Trace-Buckles, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to trace-buckles; and it consists in a novel Construction of the same, as hereinafter fully eXplained.
In the drawings hereto annexed, 'Figure 1 is aperspective View of ny improved buekle, showing the manner of 'using or applying it; Fig. 2, a perspective View of the buckle, showing the parts separated; Fig. 3, alongitudinal central section through the same.
The purpose of my invention is to produce a buckle or fastening which shall pernit the ready fastening,release or adj ustment ofstraps and bands, and particularly of heavy articles of this nature-such as traces or tugs of harness-and which shall also avoid the bending of the strap, as is done by the common buckle. These obj ects I attain by the Construction shown in the accompanying drawings, in which the buckle is represented as composcd of two parts, A and B, the forner consisting of a frane, a provided with three crossbars, b, in the same plane, and a fourth cross-bar, c, elevated or thrown out of line with the body of the frame a distance equal or about equal to the thick` ness of the strap or trace with which it is to be used. The frame a is further provided with the usual eyes or loops, d, e, and f, and with a stud, g,which passes through the strap or trace and answers the purpose of the tongue of a common buckle. The part B consists of two eurved yokes,7,separated about the same distance as the cross-bars b at the outer part,or where they pass over the trace or strap, but both joined to a common crossbar, i, by which the part is attached to the breaststrap or 'other part Oto which it may be applied. The
two parts being thus constructed, the part B has its yokes h passed upward between the cross-bars?) of part A, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3, the yokes being made of such length as will permit the cross-bars j of said yokes to be raised considerably high er than the cross-bars b of part A, and higher than the cross-bars c (No model.)
and stud g, so that a strap or trace, D, passed beneath cross-bar d can be carried forward over stud g without any appreciable bending of said strap or trace to the point desired, or until the desired hole of the strap or trace is brought into position to receive said stud. The stud being passed through the h ole of the strap or trace, as shown in the several figures, and astrain put upon the two straps C and D, the yoke h will be drawn forward and downward or inward, their cnrved arms riding upon the cross bars b and guiding the yoles iu place until their cross-bars j, hearing upon the outer face of trace or strap D, presses its inner face firmly against cross-bar b and holds the trace or strap securely upon stud g, The greater the pressure or strain the greater the security or ecrtainty with which the strap or trace is held, and less strain on the tongue or stud. lt is particularly to be noted that the strap is not bent appreciably out of a straight line where this buckle is used, that instead of a single cross-bar hearing against either face of the strap or trace, several such cross-bars bear against each side of the trace, and thus the wearing and cutting of the strap is avoided, as well as the tendency to double the strap and draw it through one of the parts by the single cross-bar of the other,which is liable to occur where a single cross-bar is used, the strength of the buckle is increased, and, finally, the
. strap is held fiat between two extended bearing-surfaces, whereby wear is lessened, as eX- plained. It islikewise to be noticed that there is no way in which the buclle can be separated so long as the trace or strap remains in place,wl'ether the parts be under strain or not. The end of the trace will be passed through a loop, Ic, on the strap G, as usual.
1 am aware that it is not new to inakeatwopart buckle, one part in the form of a yoke passing between cross-bars of the other part and over the strap, and one of said parts provided with a stud to enter a hole in the strap, as such construction, broadly consider-ed, has been enbodied in various forms. My construction, however, possesses marked advan tages over such as have been heretofore proposed so far as known to me, and therefore,
series of cross-bars in the same plane, a stnd mentioned as being already known. projecting from one of said cross-bars, and a What I claim iscross-bar raised above the series of cross-bars, 1. The berem-described buckle, eonsisting and a double yoke passed through between I 5 5 of parts A and B, the former composed of the cross-bars of the frame and having a sinframe a, having cross-bars b and stud g, and gle crossbar for attachment to a strap. the latter composed of two curved yokes, h, having a common cross-bar, i, said parts be- LAURENOE CARE' ing constructed and combined to operate sub- IO stantially as described and shown.
2. A buekle consisting of a f'ame having a while making no claim to the ideas above Witnesses:
