.. tie of this character,
OTWAY COOPER, OF URBANA, OHIO.
ROPE TIE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 24, 1908.
Application filed February 3, 1908. Serial No. 413,992.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, OTwaY Coornn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Urbana, in the county of Champaign and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Rope Ties, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to rope ties of that type in which a tie plate is adjustably secured to the body portion of the rope and is adapted to have one end of the rope secured thereto to form a loop in the rope.
The object of the invention is to provide a in which the tie plate may be readily adjusted on the body portion of the rope, and, when so adjusted, will be held securely in its adjusted position; which will not mutilate or disfigure the rope; and which will be adapted to be secured to the rope in such a manner that the strain will be exerted longitudinally of the plate.
WVith these objects in view my invention consists in certain novel features of construction hereinafter to be described, and then more particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a portion of a rope with a tie plate secured thereto; Fig. 2 is an edge view of the tie plate; and Figs. 3 and 4 are views of a tie plate showing difierent methods of securing the same to the rope.
In these drawing I have illustrated the preferred form of my invention and have shown several methods of securing the same to the rope.
In its preferred form, the invention comprises an elongated plate 1 having formed therein a series of apertures 2 arranged longitudinally of the plate. This plate is provided with a longitudinal curve, whereby that portion of the plate containing the central aperture occupies a different plane from those portions of the plate containing the end apertures. The plate also has imparted thereto a longitudinal twist which causes those portions of the plate containing the end apertures to occupy intersecting planes. This plate is adapted to be secured to the body portion of a rope 3, which is preferably provided at one end with a suitable fastening device, such as a snap hook 4.
I have shown in Fig. 1 the preferred method of securing the plate 1 to the body portion of the rope, which consists in passslightly modified ing the free end of the rope, or the end opposite the snap hook, through the central aperture of the plate and drawing the same to the desired point on the body portion of the rope, thence passing the same about one edge of the plate and then through one of the end apertures from the same side of the plate that the rope is passed through the central aperture. The edge of the plate is preferably provided between the central and end apertures with a recess 6, within which the rope fits and which permits the rope to accommodate itself to the plate and reduces the size of the knot or projection formed by the twisting of the rope about the plate. This knot or projection may be further reduced bypassing the rope through the apertures from the convex side of the plate, thus causing the bends in the rope, where the same passes over the edge of the plate, to lie in the curved portions of the plate and bringing the same approximately into alinemen't one with the other. This method of securing the plate to the rope causes the pull, which is exerted upon the body portion 3 of the rope, to be exerted longitudinally of the plate 1 and also of the loop 7 which is formed by securing the fastening device 4: to the other end aperture of the plate 1, the greater portion of this loop being broken away in these drawings.
In Fig. 3 of the drawings, I have shown a method of securing the plate to the rope. In this instance, the rope is passed through the central aperture, thence about both the lower and upper edges of the plate and through one of the end apertures from the side of the plate opposite the side from which it was passed through the central aperture. This method, while producing a larger projection or knot,
afi'ords greater securlty, as the rope is twisted twice about the edge of the plate. This form also permits the pull to be exerted longitudinally upon the plate and upon the members of the loop.
In Fig. 4: still another method of securing the plate to the rope is shown. In this form, the free end of the rope is first passed through one of the end apertures, thence carried about the edge of the plate and passed through the central aperture from the same side of the plate that it was passed through the end aperture. In this form the pull or strain is exerted upon the center of the plate between the two ends of that portion of the rope which forms the loop and which are secured to the opposite ends of the plate. This form of connection, while not providing the straight pull that is to be had with the form shown in Figs. 1 and 3, is adapted to certain uses of the tie. Thus, it will be seen that I have provided a rope tie comprising a plate which can be readily adjusted longitudinally of the body portion of the rope, and, when in its adjusted position, will be firmly held against move ment, the twist of the rope about the edge of the plate causing the same to bind in a manner which effectually prevents the plate sliding on the rope when a pull is exerted thereon, thus obviating the danger of the noose being contracted and choking the animal to which it is secured; further, that the pull or strain is exerted longitudinally of the tie plate, thus securing the maximum strength of the plate; and that the shape of the plate is such as to permit of this straight pull and also to cause the rope to fit snugly about the plate and thus reduce the knot or projection to a small size.
I wish it to be understood that I do not desire to be limited, except as required by the scope 'of the appended claims, to the eX- act details of construction shown and de l l y l I scribed, for obvious modifications will occur to a person skilled in the art.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. A rope tie of the character described, comprising an elongated plate having three apertures arranged longitudinally thereof and having a longitudinal twist imparted thereto, whereby the three portions of the plate, in which the three apertures are formed, are caused to lie in intersecting planes.
2. In a rope tie of the character described, the combination, with a rope, and a fastening device secured to one end thereof, of an elongated tie plate having three apertures arranged longitudinally thereof, the free end of said rope being passed first through the central aperture, thence around the edge of said plate and then through one of the end apertures thereof, the other of the end apertures being adapted to be engaged by said fastening device.
In testimony whereof, I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
