i. conn-FASTENING DEVICE To 11N 4 'rizo/'n `e'z m ay mince/vz. 1

Be it known'that I,"P12Rcv G. Annansy a citizeniof the United Statesyresldmg 'at Philadelphia, vinthe county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new, andjuseful Improvements in Cord-Fastening Devices;v and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact'. description of the iuvention,`such as will enable others skilled inthe art to which it appertains to make and use the same This invention relates to iniprovementsin cord fastening devices: v n .One object of the in vention is to provide a -device of this character having an im proved construction and arrangement of cord receiving mechanism whereby both ends nf acord .may be. securely fastened without A further object is' to provide a cord fastenin-g'device whichl will vbe simple', strong,

durable and inexpensive in construction; efii cient and reliablefin operation *and well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed. v t.

Withthese and other object-s 1n view, the invention consists of certain novel features V.of construction, and the combination and arrangenientof parts as will be vmore fully described and claimed. .v v

In the-accompanying drawings; Figure 1 .is a perspective'view of a package tied with a string,the ends of which are secured by my improved fasteningdevice; Fig. i) is an' i enlarged central longitudinal sectional view.

Y of the fastener having the ends of the cord section through -the` cord' attachingend of engaged therewith; Fig. 3 is a perspective view ofthe fastener showing one endv of .thel cord engaged therewith and the position of the parts before the other end of the cord 'fastened;'Fig, l is a perspective view of the inner side of the fastener; Fig. 5 is a cross notch or recess 3, the purposeof. which will be hereinafter described. N'eart-he-opposite'.

Atthe opposite-end of the body- 1 from-that in which the tongue islocated and in the inner'sideofvthe body is formed a central longitudinally disposed groove or recess 5 the purpose o f which -will be hereinafter de scribed'. 1 The edge of this end of the metal on each .side offthe groove 'is bent or foldbody roo've toform stop lugsl v themetal forming the ed back' against-'the under side ofthe on each side of the 6 while thel edge o groove 5 is bentjinwardly to form a reinforcing' bead -7*, which, togetherv witlrthe lugs 7 strengthenand reinforce this end of the fastener.

Inusing my' improved fastener one-end of the cord .has formed'therein a knot vl'and said knotted end of the cord'is secured bv engaging the same with the V-shaped notch 3 in the-end .of the slot'2A of the fastener body 1 and in engagement with the groove 5 between the stop lugs 6 whereby when the 'and passing the'cord beneath theend of the,

body' isk placed in position on' the packagefi to be tied, this end'of the cord will jbe se `curely held and this end- 'of the plateprethe cord. After this'end of the cord has been thuslsecured the same is passed around vented from slipping laterally or turning on the `package inthe direction of the length of the body '1 .and ispassed, around the tong-ue and thencejaround the package'in the other' direction, the'end of the cord .then

being again brought into engagement vwith the tonguefand wrapped around the latter one or more times after which the tongue 1s bent downwardly intovthe slot 2,v thus and securely fasteningftli-is end 'of From the foregoing description'ta'lren in connectlon with the accompanying draw.-
