PARAcl-lUTE-KITE` SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 700,281, dated May 20, 1902.

Application filed March 3, 1902. Serial No. 96,497. (No model.)

,T0 all whom, ir'mafy concern:

Beit known that I, ULYssUs V. WYATT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Marlow, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory, have invented a new and useful Parachute- Kite, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to kites, and has for its object the production of a device to be employed in connection with the kite for the purpose of causing small parachute and other toys to be discharged into the air from points upon the guide-string of the kite; and the invention consists in an attachment adapted to be connected into the guide-string of a kite,

which acts as a trip to release any small toys f which may be caused to run upon the string and permit them to iioat away in the air, as hereinafter shown and described, and specifically pointed out in the claims.

In the drawings illustrative of the invention, Figure 1 represents a kite 'and its guidestring with one of the improved tripping devices connected into the string and with a number of small toy parachutes arranged to show the operation of the device. Fig. 2 is an enlarged view of one of the trip devices detached. l

The device is applicable to any form of kite, and forthe purpose of illustration I have shown it applied to an ordinary kite, 5 representin g the kite, and 6 the guide-strin g, held by its free end by the operator, (represented at 7;) At some point in the {string` 6, preferably near the kite, a trip mechanism is connected, consisting in a wire frame or loop formed of a bottom portion 8, having upturned portions 9 10, the end 9 having an eye 10a to engage the upper section of the string and the end 10 having an eye 12 to engage the lower section of the string, as shown. The three portions 8 9 10 thus form an oblong gap in the line of the string. From the eye 12 the wire is carried rearwardly or away from the kite and bent forwardly again or toward the kite, forming a loop 13, and then continued toward the kite and gradually curved off laterally,

y as at 14, and terminatesat l'at-someV disvide an unobstructed surface'for the upper l side of the string, so that it will freely conduct any article which'may be placed upon the string over the end of the loop 13 and upon the switch-arm 14:, as hereinafter shown. When thus constructed and arranged, the attachment may be employed for the purpose of releasing toys of various kinds from the kitestring and causing themv to iioat offy through the air. For instance,` small toy parachutes or small supplemental floating kites or balloons and other-toys of various kinds adapted to be supported vin the air may be provided with small wire hooks and permitted to be carried by the Wind upward on the string 6 until they reach the switch-arm 14, when they will be guided outward on this arm and off from lits laterally-curving end 15, and thus be released from the string. For illustration, several of these small parachutes are shown each with a wire hook 16 adapted to engage the string on the upper side only.

At 16?' one of the parachutes is shown just starting on its aerial trip, at 17 one is shown with its hook 16 upon the switch-arm 14g, and

at 18 one is shownfreed from connection with.

.said string to be automatically released therefrom, substantially as described.

2. In an attachment for kite-strings, a wire loop having means for connection into the path of the string and with a rearwardly-extending loop-bend disposed tosupport the string, a switch-arm extending forwardly and forming a continuation of said loop-bend and projecting laterally from said loop,.wh`e'reby the string is supported, and means provided for guiding articles from said string upon said switch-arm, substantially as-described.

projected laterally from said loop, and toys having hooks disposed to engage said string, and adapted to he conducted upon and discharged from said switch-bar, substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.

ULYSSUS V. VYATT.
