UTTED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
ISAAC MOTTER, OF ST. JOSEPH, MISSOURI.
HlTCHlNG-WEIGHT.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 450,633, dated April 21, 1891.
Application filed October 9, 1890.
.To all whom t may con/cern:
Be it known that I, ISAAC MOTTER, a citi- Zen of the United States, residing at St. Joseph, in the county of Buchanan and State of Missouri, have invented a new and useful Hitching-lVeight, of which the following is a specication.
My invention relates to a horse-bitching weight which is provided with a chain for securing a horse thereto, and in which the chain when detached from the horse will automatically be wound in compactform within a suitable casing; and its objects are to provide a simple and convenient form of the bitching device which shall be strong and durable in its construction; and my invention consists in certain features of novelty, to be hereinafter described, and then pointed out in the claim.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved horseweight as it appears in use. Fig. 2 is an enlarged vertical sectional view of the device extending longitudinally of the drum. Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional View of the casing showing the gravity-stop enlarged. Fig. 4 is a detail sectional view on line Qc Fig. Fig. 5 is a detail perspective view ofthe base.
1 is a cylindrical casing provided with a top 2, having a central opening 3, and 4 is the circular base of the casing, provided at its upper side with an annular groove 5 to receive the lower edge of the casing, screws et passing through the base and into the casing. The inner side of the casing is provided with diainetrically opposite vertical recesses 6, which receive the vertical posts or uprights 7 on diametrically-opposite sides of the base, said uprights being just short enough as to leave spaces between them and the upper ends ot' the recesses, in which spaces are the brass boxes 8, that receive the journalsl 9 of the drum 10, said drum being thereby mounted within the casing. At each end of the drum are the annular flanges 11 and at one end of the drum, outside the fiange at that end, is secured to the journal 9 the inner end of a coiled spring 12. The outer end of this spring is secured at 13 to the base 4t, and the tendency of said spring is to turn the drum 10. At one side of the opening 3 at the top of the casing is a recess 14, in which is pivotcd on a pin 15 Serial No. 367,569. (No model.)
an automatic gravity lever or stop 1G, which is bent into angular form, as shown. Then the chain 17, which has the snap-hook 18 atits outer end and is secured to the drum 10 at its inner or lower end7 is drawn ont of the casing and off ot' the drum on which it is coiled the gravity-stop 1G will engage said chain at its inner end, as that end is weighted, and prevent the chain from being drawn within the casing and upon the drum by reason of thc tendency of the coiled spring. Then the weight is not in use and has been detached from a horse, the outer end of the gravitystop 1U is depressed, thus releasing its inner end from engagement with the chain and permittingthe chain to be wound upon thedrnm within the casing by the action of the coiled spring.
My improved horse-bitching weight is sirnple in construction, costs but little to manufacture, and is very durable. The advantage incident to the automatic or gravitating stop is that it prevents the coiled spring from acting on the chain and thus pulling on the horses mouth.
That I claim is-- l In a hitching-weight, the combination of a cylindrical casing provided on its inner side with diametrically-opposite vertical recesses, a removable base to the casing provided with diametrically-opposte vertical posts or uprights fitting within said recesses, said posts or uprights being shorter than said recesses, a drum, journals to said drum, boxes receiving said journals and which lit in the spaces between thc ends of said posts and the tops of said recesses, a coiled spring surrounding one of the journals and tixed thereto at one end and to the base at the other end, and a chain fixed to said drum and passing through an opening in the casing, and an automatic stop at one side of the opening adapted to engage said chain, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.
ISAAC MOTTER.
