To all whom it may concern Be it known thatEl, HENDERSON R-aQHmnnnss, a citizen of the iUni-ted istates, Residing: at Memphis, in thecounty noffihelbyi and State of Tennessee, have invented a inew and useful Bale llie Buckle, of which the -f0llowing is a vspecification.

The invention will be best understood from a consideration iof :the sfollowing detailed descriptiongtaken in connection with the accompanying drawings -foriningpart of this specification, with zthefifullther under-.

The end 11 is pushed through the locking slot 7 until the slack of the band is taken up, the bale, of course, being under compression within the compress. The buckle is then moved to the position shown in Fig. 5, whereby the end 11 is bent about the inner wall of the 'lip 9 as indicated at 12 and then further bent in the opposite direction about the outer edge of the tongue 8 as indicated at 18, the remainder of the end 11 being tucked in under the buckle and under the tucked end 6 of the loop 3. The end 11 where extending through the slot 7 thus becomes reversely curved about the inner edge of the lip 12 and outer edge of the tongue 13 which bends are sufiiciently sharp to overcome all tendency or liability of the end 11 of the bale band rendering. Moreover, the band may be drawn suficiently tight in its initial application to avoid any material swelling of the bale after being released from the pressure of the compress.

While the lip and tongue on opposite sides of the locking slot 7 engage the bale band on opposite faces at closely associated points,

buckle 1 having a slot 2 and a locking slot- 7 with the tongue 8 a lip 9 and end connecting portions 10 for the lip; These parts are all in general construction similar to like parts of the buckle of Fig. 1 and the associated figures, but the tongue 8 is' bent slightly outof the plane of the body of the buckle in a direction opposite to the bending of the lip ,9" out of the plane of the buckle.

While the lip 9 is parallel with the body of the buckle in the structure of Figs. 6 to 8,

. the tongue 8 is at an acute angle to the plane I oi the body of the buckle. The structure of FigsfB to 8 provides a greater amount of room'in the locking slot 7 for the initial movement. of the bale band therethrough,

L thus permitting the application of the bale v band with greater ease than in the structure of Fig. 1 and associated figures.

Whatis claimed is j 1. A. 'bale-tieubuckle of flat stock having retaining means near one end for one end of a bale band and also having a locking-slot near the other end with a tongue projecting into the slot, and a locking lip on the side of the slot toward which the tongue projects, said lip being displaced to one side of the plane of the body of the buckle.

, 2. A bale-tie buckle of fiat stock having retaining means near one end for one end 01 a bale band and also having near the other end a transversely extended locking slot, said buckle being provided with an integral tongue directed toward the end of the buckle occupied by the slot and lying in the plane of the body of the buckle, and that end of the buckle beyond the slot being offset to one side of the plane of the buckle to constitute a lip, whereby the adjacent edges of the tongue and lip are separated for the passage of the bale band between them and coact to engage opposite faces of the bale band at closely adjacent points to lock the bale band in the locking slot.

p 3. A bale-tie buckle of flat stock provided with retaining means near one end for one end of a bale band and also provided with a locking slot near the other end and having said end beyond the slot offset to one side of the plane of the buckle, and a locking tongue projecting from that wall of the slot remote from the offset end of the buckle and coacting therewith to doubly bend the portion of the bale band transversing the slot at ,closely adjacent points.

' 4. A bale tie buckleof fiat stock having I near one end retaining'means for one end of a bale band, and near the other end a lock- Qing slot for the other end of the bale band, the end of the buckle beyond the slot being .bent to one side of the plane. of the body of .;the buckle and constituting a locking lip, and the body of the buckle being provided with an integral tongue projecting from the edge of the slot remote from the lip in a direction toward that end of the buckle forming the lip, the length of projection of the tongue being substantially equal to the eX- tent of the slot lengthwise of the buckle.

5. A bale-tie buckle of flat stock having retaining means near one end for one end of abale band and provided with a locking slot near the other'end with a tongue projecting from one edge of the slot remote from the said end toward said end in the plane of the body of the buckle and said end of the buckle beyond the slot being bent to one side of the plane of the buckle in onset and substantially parallel relation thereto.

' 6. A bale-tie buckle of fiat stock with a slot near one end adapted to receive one looped end of a bale band and near the other end provided with a locking slot with said other end-beyond the slot offset from the plane of the buckle'in substantially parallel relation to said plane and said second named slot having a tongue entering it from the edgeof theslot remote from the oliset end of the buckle and extended toward the offset end of the buckle in the plane of the body In testimony, that I claim the foregoing of the buckle, whereby the free edge of the as my own, I have hereto aifixed my signatongue and the adjacent edge of the oflset ture in the presence of two Witnesses.
