Application mea Hayes, isis. serialii. 770,570.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I CARL H. Bissnnn, a

citizen of the United tates, and a resident of Syracuse, in the county of Onondaga and State of'New York, have invented a certain new and useful Conduit-Outlet Fitting, of which the following is a specification.

'This invention hasfor its object the production of a conduit outlet fitting, particularly applicable for fixtures as chandeliers andthe like, used in places as railway cars where there is excessive vibration; and the invention consists'in the novel features of construction hereinafter set forth and claimed. i

In describing this invention reference is had .to the accompanying drawing in which like characters designate. corresponding parts in all the views. j Figure 1 is a'vertical sectional viewkpartly in elevation, of this conduit outlet tting.

Fig-2 is a section on line AfA Fig. 1.

This fitting comprises generallyY an outlet .box having an opening in one side thereof, substantially centrally of the opening and connected to the box, a cover or canopy for closing the opening, the cover having an opening or passage for the pipe and being connected to the box, and means connecting the cover or canopy to the 1 e. 1 Pg is a conduit outlet' fitting having an opening 2 in one side thereof, the box also having means, as internally threaded nip` ples 3, for connection with the conduits 4 inclosing the service wires.

5 is the pipe extending centrally of the opening2 and is detachably connected to the box 1 as by screw threads, this pipe being for the purpose of inclosing the wires connected to the electric appliances or lamp sockets of the chandelier and also for the purpose of supporting such appliances.

As here shown, the box is formed with a through the opening 2 substantially centrally thereof, and the pipe 5 .threads into said nipple.

The nipple is preferably formed integral with the bottom of the box and is formed 5 with passages inits sides, as shown at 7,

which passages communicate with the interior of the box.

Sis the cover or canopy for the opening 2,

,the cover having its intermediate portion 5 beneath orbeyond the nipple G and being detachably connected at its mar as b screw threads to the box, the box lxilng berg shown as formed with a projecting annular flange 9 slmting the opening 2, and constituting securing means concentric with the nipple and the cover 8 being shown as having its mar provided with a threaded ange 10 coacting with theA flan e 9. The ve also a' shoulder 11 at t e base of e ange or en a 'n the outer ed thefiakilige 9 of the ol g ge of s ere shown, the Han e 9 ,i internall threaded, the flange 10 extgernallsy threaded, and the shoulder 11 projects outwardly from the base ofthe ange 10. 70 The cover or canopy 8 is also formed with a passage for the pipe 5, and the means for securing the canopy to the pipe is referably clamping means and includes a co let 12 encirclin the pipe 5 within a depending flange 75 13 at t e lower end of the cover or canopy, theange and the collet having conical acoacting surfaces, as indicated at 14; and said means further includes a nut 15 threading on the Harige 13 and having a shoulder 16 bearing' against the collet 12 for pressing the said collet 12 into snug engagement with the ian e 13.

Aand box 1 are of diiferent pitch so that the tendency of one of the parts 5, 8 to unscrew is resisted bythe other of said parts.

.In operation, the cover can be readily removed for permitting access to the Wires within the box 1 by first loosening the nut 15 and then Unscrewing the cover and sliding the same down the pipe, and after the cover is again tightened into position, it, as well as the other screw threaded parts, are .held from unintentional turning.

My conduit outlet tting consists of a minimuml number of parts, and is simple and strong in construction and affords for a branch pipe two means of support spaced apart lengthwise of said pipe, one supporting means bein of relatively small diam eter and fixed irectly to the body of the iitting, and the other supporting means being the cover, which is secured at its middle portion to the branch pipe beneath or beyond the first-mentioned point of support ing means, the cover serving in eifect as a brace between/the branch pipe and the body of the fitting. p
