LQGKING: APPARATUS.

Speccation of Letters Patent.

. pplication filed November 27, 1917. Serial No. 204,271.

To all whom t may Concern:

Be it known that l, l/Vrnnmn: F. Draw, a citizen of the United States, residing at akland, in the county of Alameda and State of California, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Locking Apparatus, of which the following is a specification.

The present invention relates to an improved locking apparatus designed for the interlocking of two intersecting, rotatably.

mounted, bodies together, whereby, when in interlocked engagement, said bodies are prevented from longitudinal movement relu ative to each other and one of said bodies is locked from rotation by the other.

To more fully comprehend the invention, reference is directed to the accompanying drawings, wherein- Figure 1 is a sectional view taken on. line 1 1 of Fig. 2, of the prefered. ein` bodiment of my invention.

F ig. 2 is a sectional view taken on line 2 2 of Fig. l, viewed in the direction of the arrows.

Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 1, with one of the members rotated to permit rotative movement of the other, and taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 4.. y

Fig. 4 is a view similar to `Eig. on line 4 4 of Fig. 3.

Referring more particularly to the sev eral views -ot the drawings, wherein-like charaeiers of reference designate corren spending parts, l indicates a suitable member provided with cylindrical bores 2 and 3 passing therethrough, said bores intersecting each other, as in the drawings. Rotatably mounted within the respective bores are the cylindrical bodies 4 and 5, which also intersect, as in the drawing. The body 4 is provided at the point of intersection by the body 5 with a semi-circular recess 6, in one face thereof, which is adapted to receive a solid portion 7 of the body 5, and when said solid portion 7 of the body 5 is received within said semi-circular recess 6, the rotation of the body 4 is precluded. The body 5 is also provided at its point of intersection with the body 4 with tbe soun-circular recess or depression 8 of a radius equal to that oi the body 4 and when 2 taken said body 5 is rotated to aline the de ression or recess 8 in register with the bo y 4, as in Fig. 3 of the drawing, the rotation of the body 4 is permitted. Coperating with the body 5 -is a lock controlling mechanism fi, of any well known type, preferably con-y trolled by a key, so that the body 5 is capable of being locked from rotation.

To prevent longitudinal movement of the bodies 4 and 5, when the same are in interlocked engagement and the rotation of the bod 4 is prevented, I rovide a flange or sur ace 10 circumferentially of the body 5, adjacent the edges of the depression 8, and when said body 5 is rotated to a position, as in Figs. l and 2 of the drawings, said flange overhangs the'surface of the body 4.

The rotation of the body 4is accomf plished by means of a handle or linger piece 1l secured to one end thereof exteriorly of the member l.

It will be apparent that the rotation of the body 5 is controlled by a look mechanism, conventionally illustrated as at 9, and that when said member is in a position, as in Figs, 3 and 4, with the depression 8 receiving the solid portion of the body 4,

said body 4 is longitudinally movable from its bore 2 and after being removed said body 5 is also capable ot longitudinal movethe annular flange 10 on'the body 5 prevents longitudinal movement of said body 5 relative to the body 4. o

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to protect by Let# ters Patent is zl. ln a locking apparatus, the combination of a pair of axially rotatablel bodies arranged at an angle to and intersecting each other, said bodies capable of rotation to have interlocked engagement with each other and when in said'position one of said bodies precluding the rotation of the other, the interlocking of said bodies preventing longitudinal movement of either body.

2. In a locking apparatus, the combination of a pair ot axially rotatable intersecting bodies arranged at an angle to each other and each provided at its point of intersection with the other with a degree vided With sion of a radius equal to that of the` other intersecting body, said bodies adapted for rotation to positionthe solidportion of one Within the depression Within the other' and thereby locking saidv latter body from rotaction and from longitudinal movement relatively to the other, the locking body proa flange for projecting over the edge of the depression in the locked A body,v thereby preventing longitudinal moveytion .with a pair engagement with each other,

ment of said` locking body in one direction. 3. In a locking apparatus, the combinau of intersecting bodies ar` ranged at an angle to each other and adapted to rotate axially, to have interlocked and whenin said `position one of said bodies preventing the rotation of the other and'interloeking therewith to prevent longitudinal movement l of either.

4. In, a looking apparatus, the l"Combination with a'pair of intersecting bodiesv arthe; rotation of the other and interlockingranged at an angle to each other and adapted to rotate axially, engagement with each other, and when in said position one of said bodies preventing to have interlocledtherewith to prevent longitudinal aio-vement of either, and a lock controlled mechanism controlling the rotation of said looking body.'

5. ln a locking apparatus, the combination of a pair of axially rotatable inter-- body and thereby. preventing longitudinal movement of said looking body in either direction. n v

. ln testimony whereof l have signed my -said bodies adapted for flange for projecting over the opposite edge of the depression in the locked name to this specification in the presence of 5o two subscribing Witnesses.
