JAMES DAVIS OROOKETT, OF RIPLEY, MISSISSIPPI.
HAM E-FASTENER.
SPEQIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 320,336, dated June 16, 1885.
(N0 model.)
50 aZZ whom, it may concern.-
Beit known that I, J AMES D. CROOKETT, of Ripley, in the county of Tippah and State of Mississippi, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in HameFasteners; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilledin the art to which it pertains to make and use it, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, which forms part of this specification.
My invention relates to an improvement in hame-fasteners; and it consists of a hame-fastener which is formed of two elastic pieces of wires, one of which has a hook formed upon one end, and has the other end bent so as to form a spring, while the other piece of wire forms simply a fastening-pin, as will be more fully described hereinafter.
The object of my invention is to form a hamefastener of two pieces of elastic wire, which will answer all of the purposes of the heavier and more costly forms of construction now in use.
The accompanying drawing represents a perspective of a hame-fastener embodying my invention, showing the parts in one position in solid lines and in another position in dotted lines.
The hame-fastener is formed of two pieces of wire, A G. The wire A has the hook B formed upon one of its ends,and this hook end is turned upward at an angle, so as to bring it into a convenient position for engaging with the part 0. Just beyond this hook the wire A is bent into the ring 0 for the purpose of bracing and strengthening the hook and fastening the wire to the end of one of the hames. At any suitable point this wire A is bent upon itself, and the parts of the wire are bent or crimped together, so as to form a hook, D, in or by means of which the partB is held. From this hook D the free end of the wire A extends toward the hook B,and has a small book or bend, F, formed upon its extreme end. This free end of the wireA forms a spring for forcing the part 0 tightly up into the hook B, so that it cannot accidentally work loose. The wire 0 has a ring or hook, G, formed upon its inner end,which is made to fasten or attachit loosely to the wire A. Beyond this hook G the wire 0 is bent upon itself, so as to form the bend H, by means of which it is made to engage with the ring or loop upon the hame. The free end of this wire extends forward far enough to engage with the hook B, and is made to catch upon the top of the hook l3, and to press this free end of the part A downward. This elastic part of the wire A then exerts its whole pressure in forcing the free end of the wire B upward, so as to hold it securely in place.
As this hamefastener is made of heavy wire, it will readily be seen that it can be manufactured both very rapidly and very cheaply,and that it will answer all the purposes of themore expensive hame-fasteners now in use.
Having thus described my invention, I claim 1. A hame fastener composed of the two wires A C, the wire A being provided with a hook or catch at one end,and having its other end formed into a spring, and the wire 0 being made to engage with both the hook and spring, substantially as shown.
2. A hame-fastener composed of the two pieces of wire A G, the part A being provided with the hook B, bends C, D, and F, and the part 0 being provided with the bend H and attached to the wire A, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
JAMES DAVIS GROCKETT.
