To all whom it may concern: I
Be it known that I, Louis A. CORNELIUS, a citizenof the United States of America, residing at Grand Rapids, in the county of Kent and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Pipe-Hangers; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same. My invention relates toimprovements in hangers for pipes, cables, and various other like articles, and its object is to provide a suitable device that may be manufacturedtin long continuous strips, placed upon the market in this condition, and when used can be cut to various lengths as may be required. I
My devlceconsists essentially of contlnu- 'ousstrlps of thin sheetmetal of suitable width, ha ving openings therein at intervals,
and also having marginal recesses leaving connecting portions adaptedwhen severed to pass through any one of said openings and to interlock therein, whereby the strip may be looped around a pipe or cable to support the same, and in various features of .constructlons and arrangements as hereinafter more fully described and particularly pointed out in the claims, reference being had to the accompanying drawings in which .Figure 1 is a plan View of a device embodying my invention. Fig. 2 a perspective illustrating its use as a pipe hanger.
Like numbers refer to like parts in both v figures.
I first take a strip of thin sheet metal of suitform connecting members between the portions 1. In each of said rectangular portions an-openingQ is punched out, prefer- Specification of Letters Patent.
ably square, and having opposite lateral recesses 3 near the middle of its opposite sides.
\Vhen any cruciform portion is severed a T shaped connecting member 3 isleft. at each end of the strip, and the'neck of the T portion being less than the width of the Patented Feb. 10, 1914. y Application filed July 1, 1912. Serial No. 706,993.
square opening, will move to one side of Y the same and interlock therein. I Any one of such T portions will interlock in any one of thesaid openings and thus the strip can be made to fit around any convenient size of pipe or cable as occasion may require.
In the center ofeach cruciform portion, I prefer-to make a small perforation suitable to receive a screw or nail whereby the strip may be secured to any suitabletsupport.
This device can be used either side outward, or either end upward, and of any convenient length, and is very quickly attached or; detached as occasion arises.
hat I claim is g I 1. A hanger, comprising a strip of sheet metal having square portions at regular intervals and connecting portions of cruciform shape, said square portions having square openings provided with lateral'recesses and each opening adapted to receive and retain a T, head formed by severing a cruciform portion.
2. As an article of manufacture, the described material for forming hangers for pipes, cables, and the like, comprising a continuous strip of sheet metal having marginal recesses at intervals forming cruciformconnecting portions, and alsohaving rectanguwith openings having marginal recesses and adapted to receive a T head formed by severing a cruciform port1on, and toretam the same therein. v v
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
