IINITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

FREDERICK BRUNO IVAIBEL AND HENRY MEYTROTT, OF NEIV YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNORS TO THE MANHATTAN BRASS COMPANY, OF SAME PLACE.

BICYCLE-LAM P BRACKET.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 632,858, dated'September 12, 1899.

Application filed October 27, 1898. Serial No. 694,668. (No model.)

To all wit/2712 it may concern.-

Be it known that we, FREDERICK BRUNO \VAIBEL, residing at New York city, in the county of New York, and HENRY MEYTROTT, residing at New York, ('Brooklyiu) in the county of Kings, State of New York, citizens of the United States, have invented an Improvement in Bicycle Lamp Brackets, of which the following is a specification.

Before this invention a circular plate with radial corrugations around its edge had been used either adjacent to another similar plate or between two plates, there being a screw to clamp the parts together and to allow the one to be turned on the other in determining the position or inclination of the lamp in relation to the support. In otherinstances the clamp holding the lamp to the steering-head or to the fork of the front wheel has been made in two parts, with hook-shaped ends that are passed into mortises in a separate plate that intervenes between the clamp and the lamp. In the present improvement this separate plate is dispensed with.

The sizes of the circular tubes in the cycle to which the lamp may be connected vary considerably, and in the present invention one part of the clamp is extended as aplate,with two or more mortises through it, and the other part of the clamp has a tongue passing into one of the inortises, the end of the tongue being turned up as a book, so that the size of the clamp can be varied to adapt itto ditferent sizes of tubes upon a cycle.

In the drawings, Figure l is a plan view showing the clamping devices. Fig. 2 is a side view of the same; and Fig. 3 shows the notched circular plate, with radial corrugations, attached to a lamp-body.

Let A represent the portion of any ordinary lamp-body, to which the plate B is connected, and this plate B is circular and has a range of circular radial corrugations 2 at one or both sides, and the lower part of the plate has a notch 8 in it which extends to the center of the circular portion of the plate, so that the screw 0 can occupya central position to such The jointplates D D have through them the screw 0, with a thumb or other nut O, and the space between the plates D and D is adapted to receive the plate B, and there is a range of radial corrugations 4 upon one of the plates D or D to engage the radial corrugations 2 upon the plate B. We prefer to make the radial corrugations upon both sides of the plate B and upon the inner faces of both plates D and D, and the plate B can be passed in between the plates D and D and hooked over the screw 0, and then the nut O tightened to hold the parts rigidly together, or the parts can be freely separated by simply slackening the nut O. The clip-plates E and F are adapted to clamp upon the cycle fork or frame and to be tightened by the screw G and thumb-nut. In some instances the clip-plates have had the angular portions 5 to grasp the fork of the front wheel and the approximately semicircular portion 6 to pass around the steering-head or either of the tubes of the bicycle-frame, and lining material has been provided, as at 7. In our present improvement the plate E has an extension 8, through which are two or more mortises 9, and upon the plate F there is a tongue be put through one or the other of the mor- 8o tises, so that the distance between the clip plates E and F will be readily adapted to the size of the tube that is to be grasped; and it will be noticed that the screw G, passing through the clip-plates between the angular portions 5 and the semicircle portions 6, acts to clamp the clip-plates firmly upon the cycletube, and this screw and its nut are adapted to proper action whether the tongue 10 may be through the mortise nearest to the semi o circular portion of the clip-plate or through a more or less remote mortise. In all instances the tongue 10, passing through one of the mortises, acts to connect the clip-plate F to the clip-plate E, so that the two are .95

firmly held together.

\Ve claim as our invention- 1. A bicycle-lamp bracket comprising two similar oppositely-placed plates, each having an angular portion and a semicircular portion [00 and a flat perforated portion between said parts, a clamping-screw passing through the perforated flat portions to connect the plates, a mortised extension to one plate and an engaging tongue therefor to the other plate, and means for connecting one of the plates to the lamp, substantially as set forth.

2. A bicycle-lamp bracket comprising two similar oppositely-placed plates, each having an angular portion and a semicircular portion and a flat perforated portion between said parts, a clamping-screw passing through the perforated flat portions to connect the plates, a mortised extension to one plate and an engaging tongue therefor to the other plate and joint-plates connected to the outer face of one plate and spaced apart, a plate connected to the lamp and adapted to pass between the joint-plates and a clamping-screw, substantially as set forth.

The combination in a clamp, of two plates adapted to receive between them a tube of the cycle-frame and a screw and nut for confining the parts, one of the clipplates having an extension with two or more mortises init and the other plate havingatongue adapted to pass into one of the mortises and turned up at the end, whereby the clip-plates can be connected together at the desired distances apart for receiving between them the tube of the cycle-frame, substantially as set forth.

4. A bicycle-lamp bracket comprising two similar oppositely-placed plat-es, each having an angular portion and a selnicircularportion and a flat perforated portion between said parts, a clamping-screw passing through the perforated flat portions to connect the plates,

the outer face of one plate at right angles to the meeting faces of the bracket-plates and spaced apart with their opposing faces radially corrugated, a circular plate secured to the lamp and having a notch from the lower edge to the center, and surface corrugations and a clamping-screw connecting the plates, substantially as set forth.

5. A bicycle-lamp bracket comprising two similar oppositely-placed plates each having two parts adapted for connection to parts of the cycle-frame, a clamping-screw located between said parts, a rnortised extension to one plate and an engaging tongue to the other plate, joint-plates spaced apart and connected to and projecting from the outer face of one plate at right angles to the meeting faces of the bracket-plates and a clampingscrew through the same and a circular plate connected to the lamp and having a notch from the lower edge to the center adapted to be received between the joint-plates over the clamping-screw whereby the lamp is removable from the bracket and may be turned to vary its relation thereto, substantially as set forth.

Signed by us this 21st day of October, 1898.
