SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No 300,461, dated June 17, 1884.
Application filed December '28, 1883. No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN GInBoNs, of the village of Vest Troy, county of Albany, State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Halter-Trimmings, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to that class of devices which are used to connect the end of the halter-hope to the latter at a sufficient distance from the end to form the halter-1oop by means of a snaphook on the rope and an eye on the device.
In the accompanying drawings, forming a. part of this specification, there are shown two figures illustrating my invention, with the same designation of parts by letter-reference used in all of them. Of these two illustrations, Figure 1 shows the fastening device attached to a rope, and in connection with a snap-hook forming the lead-loop of a halter. Fig. 2 shows a perspective of the device as detached from the rope.
The several parts of the device, and those of a halter with which it connects, are designated by letter-reference, and their function explained as follows.
The letter S indicates the halter-strap; L, the halter lead-loop, and L the tether end of the rope.
The letter B designates a snap-hook connecting with an eye, E, on the end of the fastening device, and I designates the latter. This fastening device consists of the two parallel side bars, B B a central semicircular strap,
J, connecting with said bars, and the two semicircular straps C O, which connect with the ends of the bars. All these parts are made with surfaces that are circumferentially coinattached to the rope without having the rope M tortuously threaded through the fastener, as is the case when a plate having a series of openings is used.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
As an improved article of manufacture for halter-trimmings, the within-described device, in combination, consisting of the parallel bars B B, made with interior concave surfaces, the central semicircular strap, J, connecting with said bars, the spur D on the in terior of said strap J, the end semicircular The fastening device thus described is preferably made of malleable cast straps, 0' C connecting with said bars, and
the eye E on the end strap 0 constructed and arranged as herein shown.
Signed at the city of Troy this 19th day of December, 1883, and in our presence whose names were hereto by us written.
