e g o UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
GEORGE B. CARPENTER, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
TENT.'
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 426,659, dated April 29, 1890.
I Application tiled January 14, 1890. Serial No. 386,923. [No model.)
To LZZ whom t may concern.-
Be it known that I, GEORGE B. CARPENTER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tents; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
My invention relates to improvements in wall-tents, and more particularly to the adaptation to such ten ts of an eave-iro11,wl1ich forms a solid bearing for the upper end of the vertical support and a substantial means 1' or attaching the guy-ropes to the tent.
Figure l represents a perspective view of my improved tent, partly in section. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the cave-iron, and Fig. 3 a
l side view of the cave-iron.
There has heretofore been a practical difficulty in the use of the necessary vertical supporting-poles in large tents arising 'from the tendency of the pole to tear the canvas. This diiiiculty is overcome by the use of an eaveiron Aof peculiar form, which supplies a solid socket for the end of the pole.
In constructing the tent re-enforcing bands or ropes B are secured to the roof, passing over the ridge, or to the center-pole and eX- tending to the eaves, where they are made fast in the eye a of the cave-iron A. This eaveiron, which consists of a piece of metal of any desired length slightly curved at one end, is provided with the three eyes a, a', and c2, and is securely attached to the roof of the tent by means of a grommet engaging in the eye a. A piece of canvas stitched across the iron obviates any tendency to rotate upon the point of attachment, or it may be fastened by riveting or stitching with twine. That end of the cave-iron which contains the eye a may be bent downwardly, so that when a cord is used at B it may pass through the eye without crowding the canvas above it. The guyropes D are secured in the eye a2 and caught over the stakes CZ in the usual manner. -The supportingpoles C are placed directly under the cave-iron A, so that the upper end of the pole, which is usually provided with an iron pike, will project through the eye (L, and is thus aiforded a substantial bearing. The cords or bands B, irons A, and poles C are placed at the corners of the tent and at such intervals along the sides of the tent as its size may demand. In all other respects the tent is without novel features.
I claiml. In a wall-tent having cave-supporting poles, the combination, with such poles and the guy-ropes D, of the re-enforcing cords B, extending from theeave to the ridgepole, and the cave-iron A, forming the connection between the re-entorcing cords and guy-ropes vand resting upon the supporting poles, substantially as described, and for the purpose set forth.
2. In a wall-tent having eave-supporting poles, the combination, with such poles and the guy-ropes D, of the cave-iron A,consisting of a single piece of metal having three eyes and forming a means of attachment between the tent and the guy-ropes and resting upon the supporting-poles, substantially as described, and for the purpose set forth.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
GEO. B. CARPENTER.
