UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE,

JOHN F. BLECHER, OF LA\VN, PENNSYLVANIA.

FENCE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 554,977, dated February 18, 1896.

Application filed May 2, 1895. Serial No. 547,865. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN F. BLECHER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Lawn, in the county of Lebanon, State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fences, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.

This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in Wire fences, and more particularly to the means for securing the panels to the horizontal wires.

It has for its objects, among others, to pro vide a simple and cheap as well as easily-applied fastening strip, having a loop-hook formed between its ends to grasp the horizontal wire and bind the panel thereto, the ends of the fasteningwvire being wrapped around the horizontal wire upon opposite sides of the panel. The panel is formed with an opening or hole to receive the loop-hook, which may be extended to pass through the said opening, which may be elongated, so as to allow the hook to be bent against the face of the panel upon the side from which the hook enters, so as to better and more firmly hold the panel against displacement. The panel may be quickly and easily removed when desired by simply bending the hook back out of engagement with the wire. Thus a panel can be taken out and replaced without uncoiling the ends of the fastening-strip from the main wire. 7

Other objects and advantages of the invention will hereinafter appear, and the novel features thereof will be specifically defined by the appended claims.

The invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, which, with the letters of reference marked thereon, form a part of this specification, and in which- Figure 1 is an elevation of a section of fence constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is an enlarged cross-section through a panel with the hook of the fastening-wire engaged therewith. Fig. 8 is a similar view showing the fastening-wire before the loop thereof is passed through the hole in the panel. Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the fasteningwire before it is applied. Fig. 5 is an enlarged sectional view through a panel and main wire with the fastening-strip in elevation.

Like letters of reference indicate like parts throughout the several views.

Referring now to the details of the drawings by letter, A designates the posts, and B the horizontal wires of the fence, which may be secured to the posts in anysuitable manner.

0 are the panels, of wood or metal, as may be desired, of the required width and provided with openings C through which the hooks of the fastening-strips pass.

The fastening device consists of a piece of wire of the required size bent upon itself at or near its center to form a loop-hook D, which may be of greater or less length, according to the manner in which it is treated after being passed through the hole in the panel. In Fig. 4 it is shown as of one length by full lines and of a greater length by dotted lines, the latter being the form employed when the hook is repassed through the panel, so as to be bent against the same upon the side from which it enters, as shown by dotted lines in Fig. 5.

The wire D is applied by passing its loop or hook through the hole in the panel, as indicated in Fig. 3, and after engaging the hook over the main wire, as seen in Fig. 2, the ends of the wire D are twisted around the main wire 13 in opposite directions upon opposite edges of the panel, as indicated, which draws the wire D against the panel and the latter is bound firmly to the main wire, the bearing or bight of the wire D upon the corners of the panel, as seen in Fig. 2, serving to prevent any possible side movement of the panel. A panel may be removed or inserted without removing the fastening-wires from the main wire by simply forcing the loop back through the hole in the panel, as indicated in Fig. 3, either bending its hook out straight, as indicated by dotted lines, or simply disengaging the hook from the wire, the resiliency of the wires easily permitting such movements. The panel can then be slipped from between the main Wire and the portion of the fastening-wire between the ends coiled around the main wire.

When the form of fastening-wire illustrated by dotted lines in Fig. 4 is employed it is applied by passing the loop or hook through the hole in the panel and over the main wire and then back again through the hole in the 15 The effect is practically the same.

panel to the side thereof from which it entered and then by any suitable means bent up against the face of the panel, as indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 5. This gives an additional binding of the main wire and panel and prevents any possible displacement of the same.

Modifications in detail may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or sacrificing any of its advantages.

wire the panel or picket will be firmly held in place.

The stay for maintaining the picket to the horizontal wire may be applied by having the stay finished as represented in Fig. 4: and

passing the free ends stay through the hole in the picket or panel, and thus bringing the hook of the stay in immediate contact with the wire and presentingthe free ends for adjustment 011 the horizontal wire, as will be 0 readily understood.

hat I claim as new is- 1. The combination with a panel having an opening therethrough, of a horizontal wire bearing against one side of said panel and a 5 fastening-wire bent at its center to form a hook passed through the opening in the panel and engaging the horizontal wire with the arms of said fastening-wire lying flat against the face of the panel opposite that upon which the horizontal wire bears with the ends of said fastening-wire extended angularly in opposite directions and bearing against the edge of the panel at opposite sides thereof and upon opposite sides of the opening, and coiled upon the horizontal wire upon opposite sides of the panel, substantially as shown and described.

2. The combination with the panel having an opening, of a horizontal wire bearing against one side of the panel, and a fasteningwire bent at its center to form an open loop or hook passed through the opening in the panel and loosely receiving and supporting the horizontal wire with the arms of said fastening lying flat against the face of the panel opposite that upon which the horizontal wire bears with the ends of said fastening-wire extended angularly in opposite directions and having bearings on four corners of the panel and coiled around the horizontal wire upon opposite sides of the panel whereby the panel may be removed without disengaging the ends of said fastening-wire, substantially as specified.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

JOHN F. BLECIIER.
