ELIJSIVORTII ELMER ETHRIDGE, OF LANARK, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR OF ONE- IIALF TO S. II. ETHRIDGE, OF SAME PLACE.
BUCKLE.
SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 557,787, dated April 7, 1896.
Application filed September '13, 1895 To (all whom it Wtay concern.-
Be it known that I, ELLswoRrH Emma ETHRIDGE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Lanark, in the county of Carroll and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Buckle, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to buckles, particularly to harness-buckles.
My object is to provide a buckle especially adapted to join the driving-reins in a double harness, whereby the fly-net will not become entangled therewith and the lines or reins will not turn over, or, if they do turn over, they will readily right themselves; also, I provide a buckle that cannot be pulled through the guide-rin gs of the harness-saddle or backpad.
\Vith these and other objects in view my invention consists in the novel features hereinafter set. forth by description and claims.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of my invention. Fig. 2 is a plan view. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section. Fig. 4 is a detail view of the sliding tongue.
Reference-numeral 1 designates the back plate of the buckle, which is oblong and wider at the farther end than at the near end and is cut away to secure lightness and yet leave suitable braces 2 for strength. At either end of back 1 and arranged parallel to each other are loops 3, which project vertically to receive the long driving-line 4. A central vertical rib 5 extends the length of the back plate flush with the inner ends of the loops 3. This rib 5 serves to strengthen the buckle and guide the driving-line l and also to hold the tongue 6, which rests loosely in a slot 7 cut through the bottom edge of rib 5 slightly beyond the middle of the rib. Tongue (3 comprises a shank 8, approximately as wide as slot 7, and a tapering arm 0, curved toward the near loop and provided with a vertical stud or finger 10 at its extremity to enter the adjusting holes in the long driving-line. N ear its forward end the tongue is notched on either side of shank 8, the forward notch 12 being of such a shape that its shoulders will preven t the tongue from sliding back through Serial No. 562,367. (No model.)
the slot 7 by reason of a forward pull of the driving-line on the stud 10. Arranged obliquely to the forward loop 3 a suitable opening 13 is formed through the back plate 1 on the opposite side of rib 5, so as to leave a straight obliquely-disposed bar 14 to hold the short driving-line 15.
In use the short line 15 is looped through the eye 13 around the bar 14 and secured back 011 itself. The long line I is then threaded through the two loops 3 until it is brought to the proper position relatively to line 15. It is then raised up at its middle portion between the loops 3, and the stud 10 is inserted through one of its buckle-holes. The line is then pulled down fiat and drawn back until notch 12 clicks into engagement with the slot 7. In this position stud 10 rests lightly against the near loop 3, so that a further back movement is impossible. Forward movement of the line is also impossible, because the notch 12 abuts tightly against the farther wall of slot 7.
In order to readjust the long line 4, the shank 8 is adjusted until the notch 16 thereof 7 5 engages the adjacent end of the slot 7, and the notch 12 is disengaged from its end of the same slot. The line at is now moved forward, causing the shank 8 to slide through the slot 7 until the tongue or stud 10 reaches a point approximately midway between the loops 3, when the line 4 may be disengaged from the tongue or stud and readjusted to the desired hole. Thisbuckle presents no tongue-point or other prongs to catch into and tear a flynet, but is smooth and compact, leaving only the two loop-straps above the reins. It is also of such shape that it will not pass through the line-rings on the back-saddle, and if turned over it will at once right itself by the 0 central pull of the long line on the rear loop.
Changes in the form, proportions, and the minor details of constrsction may be resorted to without departing from the principle or sacrificing any of the advantages of this invention.
What I claim is- 1. A buckle comprising a backplate, provided with a strap-loop at either end and a tongue-slot at one side, and a curved tongue 10o and a notched shank at its other end, snb- IO stantia1ly as described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my omi I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.

loose in said slot and provided with a stud at one end and a notched shank at its other end, substantially as described.
2. A buckle comprising a back plate, provided with a strap-loop at either end, a third strap-loop or securing-bar adjacent to one of said end loops, a tongue-slot intermediate of said end loops, and a curved tongue loose in said slot and provided with a stud at one end
