LARIAT DESIGNED FOR SKIPPING AND SPINNING Filed March ll, 1963 FIG.
INVENTOR 25 WILLIAM 0| SCHWEITZER BY Q wggmrww ATTORNEYS United States Patent 3,249,356 LARIAT DESIGNED FOR SKIPPING AND SPINNDIG William 0. Schweitzer, 10342 Old Olive St. Road, St. Louis County, Mo. Filed Mar. 11, 1963, Ser. No. 264,186 7 Claims. (Cl. 272-75) 1 may be formed.
Another object is to provide such a lariat which is simple in construction and effective in its action.
Further objects will be seen from the detailed descrip-' tion taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in which are illustrated various embodiments of this invention. It is .to be understood, however, that this invention is susceptible of various embodiments within the scope'of the appended claims.
' In the drawing:
FIG. 1 is a general view showing the lariat in condition for'skipping with the rope lengthened to its full extent;
FIG. 2 is a similar view showing the lariat in condition for spinning a loop with the rope lengthened to its full extent;
FIG. 3 is a view similar .to FIG. 1, but lariat in shortened condition for skipping;
FIG. 4 is a view similar to FIG. 2, but showing the lariat of FIG. 3 converted to a spinning rope with the lariat in a shortened condition for spinning a smaller loop than that of FIG. 2;
FIG. 5 is a view similar to FIG. 2, but showing a modificat-ion of the lariat in condition for spinning a small loop;
FIG. 6 is a detail of the swivel;
FIG. 7 is a detail of the latch;
FIG. 8 is a detail of a modified latch;
FIG. 9 is a detail of a keeper;
FIG. 10 is a section of a keeper adjustable rope; and
FIG. 11 is a partial view of a spinning rope showing the employment of the adjustable keeper of FIG. 10.
Referring to FIG. 1, 1 and r2 designate hand holds which may be of rope, and 3 designates a lariat connected to '1 and 2 by swivels 4, but the right end of the rope 3 has a latch 5 which connects to the swivel of 4 of the right hand hold. The rope 3 has a keeper 6 intermediate the ends which may simply be a loop in the form of a hog ring clamped on the rope 3. The swivel-s 4 are attached to the ends of the rope 3 by means of adjustable loops 7. Split ring keepers 8 (shown in FIG. 9) maintain the rope end loops 7.
FIG. 3 shows the jumping rope in shortened condition. To accomplish this, the keepers 8 are loosened, the end loops 7 are enlarged, and the keepers 8 are secured. This shortens the lariat body 3.
' In FIG. 2 the lariat is conditioned for spinning. In such a case the latch 5 is disconnectedfrom the right swivel of hand hold 2 and connected with the keeper 6. The lariat may then be spun in the usualmanner.
FIG. 4 shows the shortened rope of FIG. 3 conditioned showing the along the intermediate the keepers 6 and 6a.
explained).
ice
for spining a small loop in the same manner as hereinbefore described for FIG. 2.
FIG. 5 shows a jumping and spinning lariat designed for spinning a large loop and a small loop. For this purpose the rope has two keepers 6 and 6a. An intermediate lariat section 9 is connected by a swivel 4 and a loop .10 The keeper 6a is fixed to an auxiliary hand hold rope section 11 which is attached to the loop 10 by a latch 5 and has a swivel mounted hand hold '1 on the other end. When the latch 5 is connected to the keeper 6, a small loop may be spun using the lariat section 9. The section 11 is removed when the small loop is spun.
When a large loop is spun, the latch 5 is fastened to the keeper 6a and the hand hold 1 is used in spinning the loop. The spinning loop may be decreased in size by increasing the size of rope end loop 7 (as hereinbefore In order to employ .the lariat of FIG. 5 for skipping, the rope section '11 is removed, and hand holds 1 and 2 are connected to the lariat ends by means of latches 5. Alternately, if the rope is not to be used for skipping, the sections 9 and 1-1 are combined and the connection the-rebetween is eliminated. A lariat thus is formed which has two keepers 6 and 6a and provides means for spinning a number of loops.
FIG. 11 shows a spinning rope 20 having a hand hold 21 attached to one end of the lariat portion 22 by a swivel 4. The swivel 4 is fastened to one end of the-lariat 22 by an adjustable loop .23. The spinning loop 24 also is adjust-able in size by folding over the other end 26 of the lariat 22 along the body thereof.
A convenient form of connecting means 25 for connecting the folded over end 26 of the rope is shown in FIGS. 10 and 11, which comprises two formed pieces 27 of metal, rubber or preferably plastic which are connected by .a screw 28 to clamp the folded over end 26 to the body of the lariat 22.
Thus the length of the rope 20 is adjustable by means of the loops .23 and the connector 25, and the size of the loop 24 is adjustable by means of the overlapping of the free end 26 and the connectors 25.
A swivel 4 is shown in FIG. 6, and that may be of any suitable construction, comprising an eye 45, a shank 46 and another eye 47. The latches 5 and 5a, FIGS. 7 and 8, may be of any suitable construction and may simply be a snap 5, or they may be in the form of a hook 5a having an open mouth 5b adapted to enclose the rope and a closure SC to retain the rope therein.
FIG. 9 shows a keeper 8 in the form of a hog ring which is of larger size than the keepers 6. The keepers 8 are clamped around the rope.
This invention therefore accomplishes its objects, for a lariat is provided which may alternatively be used for skipping or for spinning, and which is simple in construction and uses standard parts which may be obtained at a low price.
In trick roping, the beginner can learn much easier by starting with a small loop. After mastering the small loop, the rope is lengthened until a large loop can be rotated. By using the longer rope of FIGS. 5 and 11 a loop can be formed which can be rotated around the body. After this the loop can be shortened until the roper can move in and out of the loop while continuing to spin it.
This invention is intended to cover all changes and modifications of the examples of the invention herein chosen for purposes of the disclosure, which do not constitute departures from the spirit and scope of the invention.
Having thus, described the invention, what is claimed and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is:
1. A lariat, designed for skipping and for spinning, comprising, a rope, a pair of hand holds each having a swivel, one end of said rope being attached to the swivel on one hand hold, the other end of said rope having a latch adapted for connection with the swivel on the other hand hold, in order to condition the lariat for skipping, a keeper on and intermediate [the ends of #the RIOPE adapted to receive said latch when removed from the swivel on the second hand hold in order to condition the lariat for spinning a loop, the attachment of the first end of said rope to said first swivel being adjustable in order to vary the length of said rope from said swivel to said keeper.
