SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 435,702, dated September 2, 1890.
Application filed December 9, 1889- Serial No. 333,042. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, JOHN LOOS, a resident of Freeport, in the county of Stephenson and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and usefulImprovements in Sweat-Pads for Horse-Collars; and I do hereby 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 pertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to improvements in sweat-pads for horse-collars, the object of the invention being to provide an improved sweatpad which may be readily opened at the top when the horse-collar is unbuckled.
My invention is fully described and explained in this specification, and shown in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a front elevation of my improved sweat-pad in operative connection with the collar, the collar as shown being open at the top. Fig. 2 is an elevation of the outer face of the part B of the sweatpad, showing the position of the straps by means of which the sweat-pad is ordinarily fastened to the collar. Fig. 3 is a front elevation of the lower end of the two parts of the sweat-pad, showing a clasp for uniting the ends of the two parts of the pad and clasping the central or lower portion of the collar. Fig. 4 is a vertical sect-ion through the line X X, Fig. 3, the view being in the direction indicated by the arrow in In the views, A is a horse-collar of ordinary form and construction, open at its upper end, and provided with straps or other ordinary fastenings.
B B are two parts which each correspond substantially to half of an ordinary sweatpad in construction, one of the parts, as B, being, however, preferably formed with a flap or extension I) at its upper end, said flap or extension being adapted to overlap the upper end of the other pait 13 when the collar is closed at the top, thus forming a continuous pad over the top of the neck of the horse when the collar is in use. This flap or extension may of course be on either of the parts B B, or each of them may be provided with such a flap, so that each of the parts extends somewhat beyond the central point of the upperend of the collar when all the parts are in working position. Each of the parts B B of the sweat-pad is preferably provided with two or more straps b b, fastened to its outer face by means of rivets or otherwise, and adapted to encircle the collar in the manner shown in Fig. 1, so that the two parts of the sweat-pad may thus be readily fastened to the collar or detached therefrom with very slight trouble. The sweat-pad is preferably formed with two deep scams or creases S S, Fig. 2, and the rivets which fasten the straps I) Z) in place are preferably on the lines of these seams or creases.
Instead of fastening the parts of the sweatpad in place by means of straps, they may be secured by means of staples inserted in the manner indicated in the sectional portion of Fig. 1. As shown in this view, the staple D is passed outward through the seam S, near the front edge of the sweat-pad and through the thin place in the collar at or near the edge of the groove which receives the hames. The plate E, formed with suitable perforations, is placed in the groove in the collar, and the points of the staple are passed through the perforations in the plate and turned up to hold the parts in place. Any number of these staples may be used for fastening each of the parts of the pad to the collar, and the staples may be made of soft wire, so that their points may be readily straightened for the purpose of withdrawing them when it is desirable to detach the pad from the collar.
It is usual to make the sweat-pad of such length as to leave a space between its lower ends, and I shall therefore ordinarily make this pad in two wholly separate and disconnected pieces. The two pieces may, however, be connected, if desired, in any manner adapted to leave suitable space or opening between their ends, and the device used for connecting the two parts of the sweat-pad may also serve for a clasp for the lower or central portion of the collar, if desired. The clasp adapted for this double use is shown in front elevation in Fig. 3 and in section in Fig. 4.
In the views, 0 is a clasp having ends 0, adapt-ed to be riveted or otherwise fastened to the two parts of the sweat-pad, the front and rear edges of the clasp being curved in the manner illustrated in Fig. 4, the edge 0 being adapted to clasp the inner and the edge 0 the outer margin of the collar. The grooved edge of the clasp may have the same form, if desired; but I prefer to form the edge 0' with the re-entrant angle corresponding with the groove in the collar for receiving the hames. When this clasp is used, the sweat-pad has precisely the same operation as if the parts were wholly disconnected, and the clasp also serves to maintain the relative position of the parts of the pad both With reference to each other and the collar.
The use of a two-part pad, hereinbeforc described, and its advantage over the continuous pad in common use are evident. The pad being open at the top and its parts being fastened to the collar, the collar maybe opened and removed without any readjustment or handling of the sweat-pad, and agreat inconvenience thereby avoided. The attachment of the sweat-pad to the collar is, however, only temporary, and either or both of the parts may be detached or replaced at any time with scarcely any trouble.
Having now explained and described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to claim by Letters Patent, is
The combination, with a horse-collar entire at the bottom, of a pad consisting of two parts applied, respectively, to the inner face of each side of the collar, the staples passing through each part of the pad and the contiguous portion of the collar, and the spring-metal plate connecting the lower ends of the two parts and passing around the edges of the collar beneath the hames and their fastenings, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
