ELBERT R. HOBBS, OF BUHL, IDAHO.

GROUND-ANCHOR FOB POSTS OR POLES.

Application filed October 8, 1907.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ELBERT Hones, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Buhl, in the county of Twin Falls and State of Idaho, have invented a new and Improved Ground-Anchor for Posts or Poles, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to means for anchoring the ends of guy wires or the like in the ground, and thence extended into engagement with a clothes-pole, telegraph-pole, or fence-post, for their lateral support, and has for its object to provide novel details of construction for a ground anchor, which afford an extremely simple, practical and inexpensive device of the character indicated, that may be readily buried in the ground and caused to automatically distend the flukes thereof as it is forced downward, thus insert ing said plate-like flukes into the solid earth laterally, and effecting a veryv reliable, secure engagement of the anchor therewith.

The invention consists in the novel construction and combination of parts, as is hereinafter described and defined in the appended claims.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all'the views.

Figure 1 is a side view of the improved anchor, having the parts adjusted for the free insertion into a hole in the ground Fig. 2 is a side view, showing the details of the anchor adjusted for a lateral extension of the members thereof into the side wall of an excavation in the ground, and Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the improved anchor, a portion being removed.

Two body plates 5, 6 of similar form and dimensions are features of the device. Each of these consists of a flat plate of metal, having a suitable area and preferably formed with parallel side edges a. Upon the corresponding transverse edges of the body plates tubulations b are formed, which are connected together by a pintle 0, thus hinging said plates 5, 6 together. The free outer ends of the plates 5, 6 are preferably rounded on their edges, and bent so as to curve them downward and outward, thus forming fluke 5, 6 for the earth anchor.

An anchor-bar 7 is formed with two diverging arms 7 a 7 b that join the body of the bar at an acute angle, and preferably said Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 16, 1908.

Serial No. 396,384.

anchor-bar and the arms are formed of a single wire rod, doubled at its center and there formed into a ring-eye (Z, and from said ringeye twisted together a proper distance, thus producing the body portion 7, from which the divergent arms 7, 7 b extend. The free end of the arm 7 a is formed into a loop c, having a cross-bar c, and upon the body-plate 5 ,two staple-loops g, g are secured at a proper distance apart, said staple-loops each being positioned respectively at an equal distance from a side edge of the body-plate 5 and near the fluke 5 thereon. The loop 0 is loosely held in the staple-loops g, g, thus connecting the body-plate 5 and fluke 5 with the arm 7 a on the anchor-bar 7 The loop 6, on the arm 7, may be introduced within the staple loops g, g, before the latter are riveted upon the body plates 5, and thus be adapted for a rocking movement thereon.

A single staple-loop h is longitudinally secured on the other body-plate 6, at its transverse center, said loop being slidably engaged by an oblong ring *6 formed on the free end of the arm 7 1 Upon thebody-plate 5, between the tubulations b thereon, a reinforcing limb 5 is formed, and projects from the transverse center of said plate, said limb having an obtuse angular bend therein, which adapts the main portion of said limb to extend over the staple-loop h when the body-plates 5, 6 are substantially level with each other, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3.

To adapt the improved anchor for use, at a suitable point a hole A is excavated in the ground A, of a proper depth, and the anchor, with its members 5, 6, rocked toward each other, is inserted down into the hole A until the flukes 5 6 have contact with the level bottom of the hole. The anchor-bar is now forced downward by blows thereon or by other means, which will adapt the arms 7 7 b by their looped connections with the staple-loops g, g, h to press the body-plates 5, 6 downward and outward, causing the flukes 5, 6 to penetrate the earth laterally, and thus become embedded in the solid ground, the limb 5 entering the ring t and not shown, and the latter be extended for engagement with a telegraph-pole or the like for its lateral support.

It is to be understood that while it is advantageous to construct the anchor-bar 7 of wire rod material, it is not imperative that such material be used, as the bar may be readily cast into shape from malleable metal, be forged from iron or steel, or be cut out of plate metal, and give good results.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:

1. The combination with two plates hinged together at one end of each plate, opposite ends being formed into anchor flulres, of an anchor bar having two divergent arms, means carried by the arms and plates for loosely connecting said arms and plates together, a reinforcing limb projected from one plate for engagement with one arm and a projection on the other plate, when the plates are diverged from each other.

2. The combination with two plates, hinged together at an end of each plate, the opposite ends thereof being formed into anchor-flukes, and staple-loops on the upper surfaces of the plates, of an anchor-bar formed of wire rod twisted to form the body of said bar and having a ring on one end, integral arms of wire rod that diverge from the body, and rings on the ends of the said arms, yvhich are loosely engaged with the stapleoo s.

3 The combination with two plates, hinged together at one end of each plate, a reinforcing limb 011 one plate, adapted to project over the other plate, staple-loops on the plates, and a fluke formed on the free end of each plate, of an anchor-bar having a ring on one end and two divergent arms on the other end thereof, each arm terminating in a ring, said rings being loosely secured in the staple-loops, and one ring receiving the reinforcing limb when the plates are rendered level with each other.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification inrthe presence of two subscribing witnesses.
