UNITED STATES PATENT EEICE.
WILLIAM W. YOUMANS, OF CALDWELL, KANSAS.
BUCKLE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 393,090, dated November 20, 1888. Application filed August 2, 1888. Serial No. 281,740. i
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM W. YoUMANs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Galdwell, in the county of Sumner and State of Kansas, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Buckles, of which the following is a specification.
The object of my invention is to provide a simple', cheap, durable, and easily-operated buckle which will engage the strap without the use of tongues, studs, or other similar devices, and it is designed to be applied to hamestra-ps and other parts of harness.
, The invention consists in a certain novel construction and arrangement of devices, fully set forth hereinafter in connection with the accompanying drawings, and speciiicall y pointed out in the appended claims.
i In the drawings, Figure Vl is a perspective View of a buckle embodying myimprovements applied in the operative position to a strap. Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal sectional View of the same. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the buckle removed from the strap. Fig. 4. is a detail view of the inner frame.
Referring byletter to the drawings, A designates the outer frame of the buckle, which is provided at its center with the transverse bar B; and C designates a smaller inner frame, the side bars ot' which are provided near their centers with the pliable tongues or projections D D, which are bent around the transverse bar B, and thereby pivot the said frames together.
The adjacent front ends of the frames A C are provided, respectively, with the rollerbars E F, which fit closely together, and are adapted to clamp and securely hold an interposed strap, and the adjacent rear ends of the frames A C are provided with the loops or keepers G and H, respectively. Y
rIhe end of the strap K is attached to the rear side of the keeper H, and after forming (No model.)
a loop, 7c, it passes through the said keeper, (over the end bar, c, of the inner frame.) Then, after forming asimilarloop, k', it passes through the front ends ofthe frames A and C, over the roller-bar F, under the roller-bar E, and thence rearward th rough the loop or keeper G. When the strap is strained, the front ends of the frames are drawn tightly together and the strap is compressed between the adjacent roller-bars, and thereby prevented from slipping.
It will be evident that this improved buckle is formed in two parts-namely, the inner and outer frames, (the transverse bar B being formed integral with the outer `rame)and therefore the construction is simplified and consequently eheapened.`
As there are no loose parts to the buckle, there is no liability that it will need repair.
Having thus described my invention, I claim- 1. As an improved article of manufacture, the buckle comprising the outer frame, A, pro vided with a transverse bar, B, and the inner and smaller frame, C, having its side bars provided with pliable tongues or projections D D, bent around the transverse bar B, whereby the said frames are pivoted together, substan- 7o tially as specified.
2. In a buckle, the combination, with the outer frame provided with a loop or keeper,
G, at one end, of the inner and smaller frame pivoted at its center in the said outer frame, 75 and provided at the end adjacent to the loop or keeper G with the loop or keeper H, all substantially as and for the purpose specified.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in pres- 8o ence of two witnesses.
WILLIAM W. YOUMANS.
