UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

CLARENCE A. CARMAN, OF PATERSON, NEW? JERSEY.

ANTl-RATTLER FOR THlLL-COUPLINGS.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. {181,549, dated August 30, 1892.

Application filed June 11, 1891. Renewed June 8, 1892. Serial No. 435,924. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, CLARENCE A. CARMAN, of Paterson, in the county of Passaic and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and Improved Anti-Rattler for Thill-Oouplings, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to anti-rattling attachments for thin-couplings, the main objects of the invention being to provide an anti-rattler of simple and inexpensive construction which can readily be adjusted to position and which when so adj nsted will be held against all accidental displacement.

A further object of the invention is to provide for the reinforcing of the main spring of the anti-rattler.

To the ends above set forth the invention consists, essentially, of a strip of springmetal that is provided with tongues and bent to form a main spring-arm and an auxiliary or reinforcing spring-arm, all as will be hereinafter more fully explained, and specifically pointed out in the claims.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar reference-figures indicate corresponding parts in all the views.

Figure l is a side view of a thill-coupling, representing the same as it appears when provided with my improved anti-rattler attachment. Fig. 2 is a sectional View on line 2 2 of Fig. 1, the thill-iron not being shown. Fig. 3 is a side view of my improved antirattler, and Fig. 4 is a similar view of a modified construction.

In constructing the anti-rattler formingthe subject-matter of this specification I take a strip of spring metal, preferably steel, and stamp it to produce tongues 3 3 and 4 4. The strip is then bent to about the shape shown in Figs. 3 and 4, whereby there is formed the body or back 10, the main springarm 11, which is curved outward at its upper end to overlap the thill-iron eye, and the auxiliary spring-arm 12, which by preference is carried over from the body 10 in an obtuse curve to a point in close proximity to the front face of the said body 10 and then bent outward abruptly, so as to bear against the rear face of the arm 11.

In applying the anti-rattler the V-point 5 is placed between the eyes of the jack-clip, and the attachmentis then forced downward to the rear of the thill-iron eye until the tongues 3 3 and 4c 4 spring out below said thilliron eye and the clip cross-bar, whereby the attachment will be held to place and against accidental displacement.

In Fig. 4 I illustrate a construction wherein one set of tongues is omitted.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. An anti-rattler for thill-couplings, formed with a body 10, a main spring-arm 11, there being a V-bend at the point where the arm leaves the body, an auxiliary or reinforcing spring-arm which bears against the main arm, all parts being made from a single strip of metal, substantially as described.

2. An anti-rattler for thill-couplings, formed from a single strip of metal and with main and auxiliary spring-arms and with retaining-tongues, the upper end of the main springarm being bent outward, as and for the purpose stated.
