EDWARD L. ADREON, JR.',
Ilatented November 10, 1903 PATENT OFFICE.
OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI.
BRAKE-SHOE KEY-BOUT.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent hlo. 743,794, dated November 10, 1903. Application filed April 7, 1903- Serial No. 151,549- (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, EDWARD L. Annnon,
J r., a citizen of the United States, residing at St. Louis,State of Missouri, have invented cer- 5 tain new and useful Improvements in Brake- Shoe Key-Bolts, of which the following is a specification containing a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof.
My invention relates to improvements in brake-shoe key-bolts; and it consists of the novel construction,combination, and arrangement of parts hereinafter shown, described, and claimed.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of a brake-shoe and a brake-shoe head, parts of the same being in section and showing my invention in use. Fig. 2 is a detail perspective view of my invention. Fig. 3 is a view showing a modified form of the head of the key-bolt. Fig. at is a perspective view of my invention, showing still another modified form of the head of the bolt.
The object of my invention is to produce a simple and inexpensive brake-shoe key-bolt which is designed to yieldingly connect the brake-shoe of the brake-shoe head.
' Referring to the drawings, 1 indicates a brake-shoe head which is provided with the usual key-bolt opening 2.
3 indicates the brake-shoe, which is provided with flaring walled openings 4 and 5 for the lrey-bolt.
6 indicates my improved key-bolt, which is formed from a single and continuous piece of metal, which is bent intermediate of its length and provided with a bend 7 and opening 8. The bolt 6 is provided with the bend 7, as hereiubefore stated, and with two substantially parallel prongs 9, the said parallel prongs 9 terminating in flaring portions 1 0. Formed in the material of which the key-bolt is constructed, intermediate of the parallel prongs 9 and the flaring portions 10 of the same, are inwardly-bent portions 11, which are adapted to abut against each other should the prongs 9 be bent far enough toward each other. In other words, the inwardly-bent portions orinward humps 11 limit the inward movement of the prongs 9 and the flaring portions 10. When my invention is applied to use, the flaring portions 10 are located in the flaring walls 4 of the opening in the brakeshoe, the bend 7 projects into and through the opening in the brake-shoe, and the opening 8 answers as a seat for the locking-key 12. In View of the fact that the prongs 9 and the flaring portions 10 are resilient or springy when my key-bolt is applied, as hereinbefore stated, it will be seen that the brake-shoe is yieldingly connected to the brake-shoe head. The inward humps 11 bend to prevent too much compression of the prongs 9 and pertions 10 and the consequent withdrawal of the same. The resiliency of the prongs 9 and portions 10 renders the key-bolt virtually adjustable as far as the insertion of the locking-key 12 into the opening 8 is concerned.
In Figs. 3 and 4 I have illustrated the same general idea and construction of key-bolt, but the head of the same is differently constructed. In order to keep the bolt from being withdrawn from or pulled through the opening in the brake-shoe, I provide two horizontal prongs 13, which are adapted to abut against each other, and in Fig. t I provide the head with two semicircular portions 14, which are adapted to pass around the flaring walls a and abut against each other should too much pressure be brought to bear inwardly upon the bolt.
It will be seen from the foregoing description that theopening 8 or locking-key seat is formed by bending the material out of which the bolt is constructed and that the prongs 9 and portions 10 are resilient, the resiliency in this construction being elfected by the resiliency of the prongs 9 and portions 10.
Having fully described myinvention, what I claim as new, and desire to have secured to me by thegrant of Letters Patent, is-
1. A brake-shoe key-bolt constructed of a single piece of spring metal provided with a locking-key opening, parallel prongs 9, flaring prongs 10 and intermediate inward bumps 11, substantially as specified.
2. As an article of manufacture, a brakeshoe key-bolt constructed from a single piece of spring metal, the same bent on itself so as to form a bend 7, and a locking-key opening 8, parallel prongs 9 and means carried by the terminal portions of said prongs 9 to limit the compression of the same, substantially as specified.
3. A brake-shoe key-bolt constructed of a In testimony whereof I have signed my single piece of spring metal provided with a name to this specification in presence of two 10 locking-key opening, and resilient parallel subscribing witnesses.
prongs and flaring portions, substantially as EDWARD L ADREON JR 5 specified.
4:. A brake-shoe key-bolt provided with a Witnesses: locking-key opening and resilient arms or M. G. IRION,
prongs, substantially as specified. JOHN G. HIGDON.
