SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 335,143, dated February 2, 1886.
Application filed November 16, 1885. Serial No. 182,931 (No model.)
- To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, ANDREW ()RTMAYER, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Horse-Collar Pads, of which the following, in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a specification.
In the drawings, Figure l is a front view of a horse-collar combined with a pad provided with my improvements. Fig. 2 is a like representation, enlarged, of that portion of the pad to which my improvements are applied. Fig. 3 is a section in the plane of the line 00 0c of Fig. 2, viewed in the direction indicated by the arrow there shown. Fig. 4 is a section in the plane of the line 00 m of Fig. 2, viewed in the-direction indicated by the arrow there shown, and representing a modification in the arrangement of one of the parts shown in Figs. 1 and 2; and Fig. 5 is a like view showing still another modification.
Like letters of reference indicate like parts.
My invention relates to that class of horsecollar pads which are provided with means for connecting or clasping them temporarily or removably to the rolls of a horse-collar.
My purpose is to provide an improved means for the purpose of so connecting the pad'and the collar; and it consists of those features of construction which I have hereinafter described, and set forth in my claim.
Arepresentsa horse-collar, and B is a horsecollar pad. These pads are made of different material, varying in thickness, strength, or durability of texture, being sometimes made or covered with leather, sometimes with canvas, and also with lighter material.
I have aimed to adapt my improvements to pads made of different materials, such as those referred to.
G, as shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3, represents a piece of leather stitched to the outside of the pad, made of comparatively light goods, for containing the wadding which renders the pad soft.
D is a slot cut in the central portion of the piece 0, it being understood that the piece 0 is stitched to the pad near the edges of the said piece, thus leaving the central portion of the piece 0 free from the pad in the vicinity of the said slot.
Eis a clasp made in one piece of wire. This clasp I bend in such form that it will clasp or engage the roll of the horse-collar, as is clearly shown at a, Fig. 3.
The wire of which the clasp is made, after being bent as described, is bent out laterally at its ends, as shown at b b, forming arms or trunnions there, on which the said clasp may turn, as will hereinafter more fully appear, it being understood that the wire constituting the clasp E is also so bent as to form two parallel parts,c c,which are contracted or brought together, as at d d, just before the arms I) Z) are bent laterally, as is clearly indicated in Fig. 4.
The wire of which clasp E is made need not be yielding, so as to open more or less for the purpose of being clasped with the roll of the collar; but it is sufficiently yielding so as to permit the contracted and out-turning ends of the wire to be pinched or pushed past each other, so that the said arms may be arranged in or pushed through a slot, D, which is only as long as one of the said arms. By pinching the contracted portion of the clasp Ea together in this manner the arms I) I) may be passed through the slot D. Then by releasing the clasp its contracted portion will spring apart, so that the arms d d will pass underneath the leather piece 0, thus connecting the clasp to the pad in such a manner that the clasp may be turned on the said arms. It will also be perceived that by pinching the contracted portion of the clasp together it may be removed v lutely necessary part, although I deem it preferableto employ it when the pad-covering is made of comparatively light material.
Having thus described my invention, whatI claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. The combination, with a horse-collarpad E E, bent to clasp the roll of the collar, and having therein the slots D D, of the laterallyhaving lateral arms I) b, entering the said slots, yielding wire clasps E E, bent to clasp the roll substantially as and for the purposes specified. of a horse-collar, the said clasps having the In testimony thatI claim the foregoing as my 5 arms b 1), adapted and arranged to enter the own I hereunto aflix my signature in presence 15 said slot, substantially as and for the purposes of two Witnesses.
2. The combination, With a horse-collar, 0f Witnesses: a pad having therein the slots D D and pr'o- F. F. WARNER, 1o vided with the laterally-yielding wire clasps GEO. W. UNDERWOOD.
