A T TOR/VEY Dec. 27, 1966 .1. A. GAYLORD 3,293,713

ADJUSTABLE STRAP CONNECTOR Filed Nov. 18, 1964 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 JOHN A. 6A YLO/PO ATTORNEY United States Patent 3,293,713 ADJUSTABLE STRAP CONNECTOR John A. Gaylord, San Rafael, Califi, assignor to H. Koch & Sons Inc., Corte Madera, Calif., a corporation of California Filed Nov. 18, 1964, Ser. No. 411,982 Claims. (Cl. 24-196) This invention relates to belt or strap connectors.

Particularly it is the object of the invention to provide an adjustable fastener for harness webbing and the like wherein the connector is utilized to adjustably secure the free end of the hardness webbing so as to fit or rig the harness to objects of various shapes and sizes.

The connector herein may be combined with other devices advantageously wherein adjustable tightness of connection is required.

An object of the invention is to provide a locking member in such connector which is surrounded by the web, threaded through the connector frame and around said locking member so that the load exerted on the connector tilts the locking member to firmly press the free end portion of the web against the connector frame and prevent slipping of the web as long as the connector is subjected to such load.

Another object of the invention is to provide such a tilting, locking member in a connector combined with resilient means to urge the locking member toward the end of the frame and against the webbing.

I am aware that some changes may be made in the general arrangements and combinations of the several devices and parts, as well as in the details of the construction thereof without departing from the scope of the present invention as set forth in the following specification, and as defined in the following claims; hence I do not limit my invention to the exact arrangements and combinations of the said device and parts as described in the said specification, nor do I confine myself to the exact details of the construction of the said parts as illustrated in the accompanying drawings.

With the foregoing and other objects in view, which will be made manifest in the following detailed description, reference is had to the accompanying drawings for the illustrative embodiment of the invention, wherein:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the connector.

FIG. 2 is a front view of the connector with the resilient means shown in section.

FIG. 3 is .a developed view of the parts of the connector.

FIG. 4 is a sectional view of an enlarged scale of the connector showing the web in released position for adjustment.

FIG. 5 is a sectional view of the connector on an enlarged scale showing the connector under load, the tilting of the locking member being somewhat exaggerated.

The parts of the connector, as shown on FIG. 3, include a generally rectangular frame 1 which has vertical sides 2 connected by a transverse end 3, a top transverse end 4 and an intermediate cross bar 6, spaced between the ends.

A locking member 7 extends transversely between the top end 4 and the cross bar 6. The locking member 7 is generally U-shaped and it has an elongated groove or recess 8 along its entire length formed between a lower longitudinal wall 9 and a higher longitudinal wall 11.

"ice

The ends of the walls 9 and 11 extend beyond the ends of the recess 8 so as to slidably straddle the respective vertical sides 2 of the frame 1. The inner faces of the walls 9 and 11 are tapered or rounded outwardly away from the recess 8 so as to facilitate the tilting and locking action of the locking member. The space 12 between the ends of the walls 9 and 11 is wider than the thickness of the adjacent vertical frame side 2 for facilitating the tilting and locking action of the locking member 7.

From each end of each wall 9 and 11 extends downwardly an abutmentflange 13 and the bottom of the recess 8 is also flanged downwardly between the flanges 13 so as to define a channel 14 along the underside of the locking member 7 to accommodate a web 16 between the flanges 13 as shown in FIGS. 1, 4 and 5.

The resilient urging means includes a saddle 17 which fits over the cross bar 6, spaced parallel flanges 18 projecting from the top of the saddle 17, a double coil spring 19 nested between said flanges 18, and a generally U-shaped follower 21 inverted and slidably fitting over the flanges 18 of the saddle 17 and also over the sides of the saddle 17 and resting on the spring 19. The free ends 22 of the coil spring 19 bear against the top wall of the follower 21 normally to urge it away from the cross bar 6 and toward the locking member 7. The top wall 23 of the follower 21 has .a rectangular recess 24 in each end thereof which recesses slidably straddle the respective vertical frame sides 2. Thus the ends of the top wall 23 of the follower 21 bear against the lower edges of the abutment flanges 13. In this manner the locking member 7 is under resilient pressure at all times yet the web 16 is free to move between the follower 21 and the locking member 7 through the channel 14.

In operation the free side 26 of the web is threaded between the follower 21 and the locking member 7 from under the higher wall 11 through the channel 14 then upwardly and around the lower wall 9 and back under the top end 4 of the frame 1 and then under the captive side of the web 16. The top end 4 of the frame 1 is tapered inwardly of the frame, as shown in FIGS. 4 and 5, so t-hatthe sides 27 thereof converge toward the recess 18 in the locking member 7.

Another web 28 or other load bearing element is connected to the frame 1 to pull oppositely to the captive side of the web 16. For instance, the web 28 is doubled on itself around the lower frame end 3 and it is stitched into a loop.

When the frame 1 is under load, namely pull is exerted on the lower end 3 and on the captive side of the web 16, then the pull exerted by such load forces the captive side of the web against the outer rounded lower corner 29 of the higher wall 11 and tilts the locking member 7 from the position shown in FIG. 4 substantially to the angle shown in FIG. 5 so as to tilt the higher wall 11 toward the adjacent side of the top end 4. As a result, as long as the connector is under load exerting pull in opposite di rections on opposite ends of the frame 1, the inner top edge 31 of the higher wall 11 presses against the adjacent portion of the free side 26 of the web and tightly grips the web between the tapered side of the top end 4 and the inner top edge 31 of the higher wall 11. The greater the load the tighter the gripping becomes so that slipping of the web is positively prevented.

In order to adjust the length of the web 16, the load is relieved on the frame 1, or the frame is held in hand so as to relieve the load, and by pulling on the free side 26 of the web, the force exerted on the lower corner of thelower wall-9 tilts the locking member 7 in clockwise direction viewing FIG. 5 so as to allow freeing of the web.

If it is desirable to loosen the web, then the frame 1 is 'held to relieve the pull on the web 16 and then the captive end of the web is pulled through the channel 14 so as to lengthen it. During all these operations the bottoms of the flanges 13 are engaged by the respective ends of the top wall 23 of the follower 21 so as to resiliently urged the locking member 7 toward the top end 4 of the frame 1.

I claim:

1. Anadjustable connector for harness webbing and the like, comprising,

a. a frame,
