J. A. TAYLOR. HITCHING POST.
(Applica tion filed Nov. 12, 1901.)
(No Model.)
' [NVENTOR WITNESSES:
UNITED "STATES.
PATENT OFFICE.
JAMES A. TAYLOR, OF DUNCAN, ILLINOIS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent Q. 701,964, dated June 10, 1902. Application filed November 12, 1901 Serial No. 82,026. (No'modeh) I T0 at whom it Wtay concern:
Beit known that I, JAMES A. TAYLOR, a citizen of the United States, residing at Duncan, in the county of Stark, State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hitching-Posts; 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.
This invention relates to hitching-posts; and it has for its object to provide a device of this nature to which a hitching-strap may be easily and quickly attached and from which it may be as easily removed and without requiring the use of a buckle or snap-hook or other attachment on the strap itself.
A further object of the invention is to pro vide a construction which will hold the strap firmly when engaged, so that it cannot be drawn from the post by the animal that is hitched and will not become accidentally disengaged.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be understood from the following description.
In the drawings forming a portion of this specification, and in which like numerals of reference indicate similar parts in the several views, Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the post with a hitching-strap engaged therewith. Fig. 2 is a top jplan view of the post with the strap engaged. Fig. 3 is a vertical central section through the post and between the spaced members atthe upper end thereof.
Referring now tothe drawings, there is shown a post comprising ajstem portion 5, the upper end of which is bifurcated to form the two members 6 and 7, having straight parallel inner sides or edges and which members are of open construction, forming loops, as shown. A trigger or latch lever 8 is provided and has an ear 9 disposed between the inner faces of the members 6 and '7, and through which ear and the members is passed a pivotpin 10, the latch extending at both sides of the ear, as shown, and having its lower end broadened to form a thumb-piece 11. By pressing upon the thumb-piece the upper end of the latch is moved from between the members 6 and 7, and whenthe thumb-piece is released the'latoh is returned for its upper end to lie between the members by means of the helical returning-spring 12, disposed between the thumb-piece and the adjacent face of the post and seated in depressions therein.-
In practice the end of the hitching-strap (shown at 15) is passed between the member 6 and the latch, then around behind the latch, then between the latch and the member 7, so that if theends of the strap be pulled in adirection away from the post the latch will be pulled into position between the members 6 and 7 in the same direction as urged by the helical spring. The-same result is secured when one end of the strap is pulled in the same direction, the friction between the strap and the latch being sufficient under the influence'of the helical spring to insure movement of the latch with the strap.
.To prevent upward movement of the strap from the upper end of the latch, a keeper 16 is provided. Thiskeeper, as shown, consists of a U shaped wire, the ends of which are engaged in the members 6 and 7, so as to bridge the members 6 and 7 at a point below the upper end of the latch,and thus if the strap be moved upwardly before it can be drawn from the latch it will strike the keeper and further upward movement thereof will be prevented. To further prevent disengagement of the strap from the post, as'where a double team is to be-hitched, thestrap may be taken through the loop of member 7,- thenth'rough the loop of member 6, and'then around and behind the latch.
In practice modifications may be made and any suitable materials may be used and proportions observed without departing from the spirit of the invention.
What is claimed is 1. A hitching-post having its upper end bifurcated to form laterally-spaced members, a latch pivotally mounted for-movement lof its end between the members, means for holding the latch yieldably in positionwith its end be tween the members, anda' keeper connecting the spaced members. at the opposite side of the post from the latch and-belowthe upper end of the latch. V H 2. I A hitching-post having its upper end bifurcated to form laterally-spaced members, a
latch having an ear pivotally mounted bemembers of the post beingin the form of loops, [0 tween the members at the lower ends thereof, as and for the purpose set forth. said latch being adapted for movement with In testimony whereof I affix my signature its illppar encli between the rlnernbers, means in presence of two Witnesses.
5 or 101 ing t 1e latch yieldab y with its upper r r end between the spaced members, and a JAMED F A1 LOB keeper connecting the spaced members at the Witnesses: opposite sides thereof from the latch and he- LAURO F. O. BOSWORTH, low the upper end of the latch, the spaced MARIE HENRY.
