Specification of Letters Patent,
Patented Dec. 14:, 19115.
Application filed March 8, 1915. Serial No. 12,759.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EARL J EWELL, a citizen of the United States of America, and resident of Bellaire, county of Belmont, and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cable-Hangers, of which the following is a spec fication.
This invention relates to cable hangers, and it has for its primary object to provide an improved metal hanger of that type employed for suspending lead cables and the like from messenger wires.
A further object is to provide a hanger having no-parts requiring bending to eflect its attachment to and detachment from the cable or wire, and which, consequently, may
be readily applied and removed by hand without the intervention of any tool.
A still further object of the invention is to provide a hanger of the character men tioned which presents but slight obstruction to the passage thereover of the common type of cable buggy or carriage; also to provide a hanger by means of which the cable and its supporting wire are efiectually maintained separated a spaced distance.
With these and other objects in view, the invention resides in the features of construction which will hereinafter be fully described, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in Which Figure 1 is a perspective view of the invention; Fig. 2 is an edge view, enlarged; and Fig. 3 is a front elevation.
The invention is composed of a single piece or strip of sheet metal of uniform width throughout, which is bent at a point substantially midway between its ends to form a loop 1 designed to closely embrace a messenger wire 2, the latter being indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 1, and which is bent at points adjacent to its opposite ends to form substantially semi-circular oppositely disposed portions 3 which together constitute a cable-receiving clamp. Those portions 4 of the strip intermediate the loop 1 and the semi-circular-portions 3 are straight and parallel and lie closely adjacent to each other, constituting a more or less rigid stem by means of which the messenger wire 2 and the cable 5 are maintained in fixed relation. Parallel terminals 6 and' 7 extend downward from the curved cableembracing portions 3, being located diametrically opposite and in substantial alinement with the parallel members 4. The terminal 6 is of greater length than terminal 7 and has a reverse bend formed in its extreme end to constitute a hook 8 in which the end of the plain bill-like terminal '7 is received for interlocking said termina s.
To apply the device, the same is spread open and slipped downward over the messenger wire 2 which passes through the throat 9 in reaching the loop 1. Since the said loop is made of a size for closely em bracing said wire and closely underlies said wire at the junction therewith of the parallel portions 4, the device seats firmly on the wire while the cable 5 is being inserted between the curved portions 3. After inserting said cable, the bill-like terminal 7 is slipped into engagement with the hook 8. The weight of the cable acts to effectually prevent chance disengagement of the bill from the hook. However, when it is desired to remove the hanger, upwardly directed force exerted at or adjacent to the point indicated by the letter w will effect the withdrawal of the bill from the hook, after which the two sides of the device may be spread apart for disengaging it from the interposed cable and wire.
What is claimed is 1. A cable hanger comprising a strip of metal shaped to form a wire-receiving loop and oppositely disposed cable embracing portions, parallel members intermediate said loop and said portions constituting a stem whereby the wire and cable are held in spaced relation, said members being disposed closely adjacent to each other to form a throat of less width than the diameter of said loop, terminals diametrically opposite and in substantial alinement with said members, one of said terminals having a return bend formed therein to constitute a hook and the other terminal being straight and adapted to be sprung into interlocking engagement with said hook.
2. A cable hanger comprising a strip of metal shaped to form a loop for closely embracing a supporting wire, said loop being located substantially midway between the ends of said strip, oppositely disposed semicircular cable-engaging portions located adjacent to the opposite ends of said strip, and terminals formed diametrically 0pposite said 100p, one of said terminals having a return bend formed therein to constitute a hook of permanent shape adapted for receiving therein in interlocking relation the plain end of the opposite terminal, said plain end being adapted to be sprung into and out of interlocking position by up- 10 Wai-dly directed pressure applied to the under side of the adjacent cable-engaging portion.
In testimony whereof, I afiix my signature in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
EARL J EWELL.
