GEORGE T. CHATERTON, OF CORTLAND, NEW YORK.
BODY-HANGER FOR VEHICLES.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 628,759, dated July 11'," 1899.
Application filed May 11, 1899. Serial No. 716,429. (No model.)
To ctZ w/wm it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE T. CHATTER- TON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cortland, in the county of Cortland and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Body-Hangers for Vehicles; 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 appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to body-hangers for vehicles; and it consists, essentially, of a saddle or bracket combined with a suitable body-loop, the two forming a simple, cheap,
and durable device by means of which a ve-.
hicle-body may be firmly supported upon the springs.
One of the objects of the invention is to provide a connection between the body1oop and the spring of such character that the body may be attached rigidly to the spring and in case of wear or accidental breakage may be readily and quickly removed and replaced by a new one.
Another object of the invention is to so construct said connection as to obviate the ne cessity of the removal of the body-loop in making repairs and to permit the top of the body-loop to be on a levelwith or slightly below the top of the spring, and thus present a finished and attractive appearance.
Other objects of the invention will be apparent from a more detailed description of the same.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of the hanger complete; Fig. 2, a central transverse section of the same, showing it secured to an elliptic spring, the latter being also in transverse section; Fig. 3, a perspective view of the saddle or loop detached, and Fig. 4 a modified form of the device.
Referring to the several views, the numeral 1 indicates the body-loop, which may be of the usual or any approved construction, preferably formed with two hanger-arms 2, which are rigidly secured to the body of the ve hicle by means of suitable fastening devices, preferably bolts and nuts. The central portion of the body loop is preferably made square and is provided with suitable boltholes 3.
The numeral at indicates a saddle or bracket, which in cross-section resembles a double angle and for convenience will be designated as a double-angle saddle or bracket. This saddle or bracket forms the connection between the body-loop and spring, the vertical wall and the flange 5 forming a firm seat for the square portion of the body-loop and the vertical wall and the flange 6 forming a seat for the spring 7. The flange 5 is provided with bolt holes corresponding to those in the central portion of the body-loop and the flange 6 with suitable bolt-holes by means of which the saddle or bracket is rigidly secured to the spring.
It will be apparent that my invention possesses many advantages over the body-hangers now in use, among which is its cheapness of construction and durability. The saddle or bracket, which forms the important element of the invention, can be made of malleable iron, and as it is separate and not an integral part of the body-loop it can be readily replaced at a small cost when broken or worn out. It represents a neat and finished appearance, as the central portion of the bodyloop is seated well down and is completely hidden from a rear View by the spring. The construction of the saddle or bracket is practicable, as the saddles or brackets can be used with various styles or" body-loops and can be made in large quantities ready for use,
Another important advantage of the saddle or bracket is that it can be reversed and attachment made to the body-loop and spring, as shown in Fig. 4, so as to increase the height of the body, if desired.
It will be understood that my invention may be used in connection with springs other than elliptic, and I do not wish to be understood as limiting myself to any particular kind of spring.
Having thus fully described my invention, .what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The combination with a vehicle-body loop and spring, of a double-angle saddle or bracket adapted to form a connection be- In testimony whereof I affix my signature tween the body-100p and spring. in the presence of two witnesses.
2. A vehicle body-halwer composed of a body-100p and a doubl -angle saddle 0r GEORGE CHATTERTON' 5 bracket, one flange of which is detach-ably se- W'itnesses:
cured to the body-100p and the other flange JESSE VAN DENBURGH,
adapted to be attached to a spring. CHAS. OBRIEN.
