TELEGRAPH AND LIKE POLE BRACKET.
Application filed May 1,
To alt whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HARRY LENOH, subject of the King of Great Britain, residing at Hazlemere, Holly Road, Blackheath, in the county of Kent, England, have .invented certain new and useful Improvements in Telegraph and like Pole Brackets, of which the following is a specification.
The invention provides an improved construction of telegraph or like pole bracket for use either as a foot step or an insulator support.
The bracket according to the invention combines a horizontal bar formed partly by two distanced apart integral side strips arranged parallel with each other with their faces in the vertical plane, ears or lugs shaped outwardly from 'the metal of the side strips for the attachment of the horizontal bar to the pole, and an oblique prop the pole at its d and which is pierce out and bent up as an all-in-one piece part of the side strips and lugs to thereby provide a cheaper production and a strong form. of bracket for the reason that there are no separate parts to be riveted or connected to each other.
In carrying bracket is formed either from a of metal or section.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of; the improved bracket. Fig. 2 is a cross section of Fig. 1 on the dotted lines A B. Fig. 3 is a cross section of Fig. 1 on the dotted lines C D, but with part. of the prop broken away. Fig. 4 is a plan of blank on a redueed scale, before bending. Fig. 5 is a longitudinal edge view 0 Fig. 4. Fig. 6 is a cross section of Fig. 4 on the dotted lines E F. 1
The drawings show the bracket for use as a foot step, but it will be understood that it may be used for other purposes, e. g as an insulator support. The blank 41 of any suitable thickness, has a central extension arm at its upper en flat blank a of about one third its width, and is longitudinally cut to form three strips a", (1* a The middle strip a is of a equal to the breadth of the extension, as

also are the two side strips a a, the cutting providing in the blank three parallel strips connected to each other and to the extension by an intact portion a of the blank. The middle strip a} is bent downwardly from the termination of the cutting (on the creasing line 0) to form an oblique prop s, Fig. 1, which at its free end for a distance is further and independently bent to provide an ear or lug s to be wood screwed or nailed to the pole, this prop providing a sort of compression stay to the foot step. The prop may have a twist in it at the termination of-the cutting, sothat in plan one of its longitudinal edges is uppermost, with the faces vertical. The side strips a a are bodily turned down on the creasing lines d d so as to present the inner longitudinal edge of each strip uppermost and form a horizontal bar or tread portion to the foot step, said strips being still parallel with each other and distanced apart. if of the side strips are in ependently bent, on the creasing lines t into ears or lugs to closely fit the circle of the pole for attachment of said end thereto by wood'screws or the like. The central extension 0. is turned upwardly on the creasing line '0 to provide a definite end to the horizontal bar or tread portion preventin the foot slipping off at this end.
aving now I claim and desire to secureby Letters Patent is A bracket of the type ing a pair of side strips arranged in para lel vertical planes and a brace intermediate the side strips and extending obliquely and inwardly relatively thereto, the brace at its inner end being integrally joined to said strips adjacent the upper edge and the outer end thereof, and having the web of material whereby it is joined to the strips'disposed "in a plane at right angles to the planes of the strips, strips and the free end of the brace being formed to provide attachment lugs as and for the purpose set forth.
