BUILDING-WALL.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed September 26, 1906- Serial No. 336,36L

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1; WILLIAM CURL TT, 'a

' citizen of the United States, residing at San Francisco, in the county of San Francisco and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Building-Walls, of which the following is a specification.

My invention pertains tov walls of hollow building blocks and it contemplates the provision in such a wall of simple, inexpensive,

and easily applied means for strongly connecting the meeting ends of two blocks together and at the same time holding the intermediate portion of a superposed block to and in vertical alinement with the lower blocks.

With the foregoing in mind, the invention will be fully understood from the following descriptionand claims when the same are read in connection with the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which:

Figure 1, is a side elevation illustrating the I clip comprised in my invention as connecting the meeting ends of two blocks, and holding the center of a block arranged over the joint between the lower bloclis. Fig. 2 is'a transvense section takenin the plane indicated by the line 2-2 of Fig. 1,. Fig. '3 is a horizontal section taken in a plane above the clip. Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the clip removed. Fig. 5 is aperspective view of a modified clip.

Fig. 6 is a transverse section showing the modified clip in use.

Referring by letter to the said drawings, and more particularly to Fi s. 1 to 4 thereof:

A A are hollow building b ocks'or tiles arranged end to end, Fig. 1. B is a similar hollow block or tile arranged with its intermediate portion above the 'oint between the lower'blocks or tiles, andis my novel clip from the ends of said body, an

for connecting the meeting ends of the lower blocks together and holding the upper block above the joint between the lower blocks:

The said clip C is preferably,.though;not necessarily, formed in-any: approved jwa 'of' sheet-metal; andit comprises'a flat b0 y a, flanges b reaching upward at ri ht angles.

reaching downward at right angles from the intermediate portions of the longitudinal edges of body a. I

' In the practice of my invention, the blocks-- A are arranged end to end as shown, and the clip 0 is placed over the'meeting-end portions Patented May 28,1907.

said end portions while the depending flanges 9 rest snug againstthe inner sides of the endporions, this to tightly and strongly holdv the ends of the blocks together. The upper block B is then positioned so that its intermediate portion rests over the body a of the clip, and above the joint between the lower blocks, and snugly between the upwardly extending flanges b of the clip, when, as will be readily apparent, the upper block will be strongly held in alinement with the lower block and against casual lateral displacement in either direction. This operation is continued throughout the building of the wall; audit will be appreciated that not only are the clips C adapted to be quickly and easily placed in position, but are calculated to facilitate the placing of the intermediate portions of the upper blocks over the joints between the blocks on which the upper blocks are superposed. vIt will also be appreciated that by connecting the meeting ends of the lower blocks together and holding the intermediate portions of the upper blocks, the clips 0 contribute materially to the strength and durability of the wall. w

The modified clip C shown in Figs. 5 and 6, comprises a flat body a, upwardly direct: ed, right angle flanges b at the ends of the body, and depending righ't angle flanges c on the longitudinal edges of the body. It will be noticed, however, that the ends of the flanges 0' rest in the same vertical planes as the endflanges b, and from this it follows that while the flanges c will connect the end portions of two lower. blocks A to other in the'same manner as the flanges c o the clip (3, the end flanges b will hold the intermediate portion of the superposed block B by bearing snug against. the inner sides of the side walls of said block.

. It will be gathered from the foregoingthat v While it is more expedient to form the clips 0 and C of sheet-metal, yet said clips may be made of any other material compatible with .myinvention without involving departure from the scope thereof. The constructions herein shown and described constitute the preferred embodiments of my invention, but I desire it understood that in practice such changes in'the for'm,'construction',and relative arran ementof parts maybefmade as fairly fall wlt 1n the I scope of my invention asclalmed Q seaeee of the lower blocks and between the upper edges of said end walls and the upper block,

arms reaching downward at right angles from the body an arranged at the inner sides of the adjacent end walls of the lower blocks to hold said blocks together or against endwise I movement away from each other, an arm reaching upward at a right angle from one end of the fiat body and opposed to one side of the upper block,'and an armreaehing upward at a right angle from theopposite end of the flat body and opposed to the opposite side of the upperbloek; said upwardly reaching arms being adapted to hold the upper block against lateral displacement.

, 2. A wall comprising lower, hollow blocks arranged end to end, an upper, hollow block arranged with its intermediate portion above the meeting ends of the lower blocks, and a clip arranged entirely between the vertical planes of the outer sides of the blocks and having a flat body resting on the adjacent end walls of the lower blocks and between the upper edges of said end walls and the upper block, arms reaching downward at right angles from the body and arranged at the inner sides of the adjacent end walls of the lower blocks to hold said blocks together or against endwise movement away from each other, an arm reachingupward at a right angle from one end of the flat body and opposed to the inner side of one side wall of the upper block, and an arm reaching upward at a right angle from the opposite end of the flat body and opposed to the inner side of the opposite side wall of the upper block, for the purpose set forth.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing witnesses.

WILLIAM CURLETT. Witnesses:
