WILLIAM HENRY GLEGG, OF BURNLEY, ENGLAND.
DEVICE FOR BINDING HOSE-PIPES TO METALLIC PIPES.
Application filed September 4, 1918.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM HnNnY CLEGG, a subject of the King of Great Britain, residing at Burnley, in the county of Lancaster and Kingdom of England, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Devices for Binding Hose-Plpes to- Metallic Pipes, of which the following 1s a specification.
This invention has for its object to provide a device by which a rubber hose pipe and a metallic pipe that is spigoted lnto it, can be bound or coupled together so as to provide a fluid tight connection.
My improved device comprises a flexible binding scrap, a loop through Wl'LlCll the strap is passed twice to form a bight to go aroimd the hose pipe, a second loop attached to one end of the strap through which the strap is passed after passing through the first loop, such loops being arranged to provide a two-fold purchase to enable the strap to be drawn very tight, and a buckle or fastener attached to one end of the strap by means of which the strap after being bound around the hose pipe can be held under tens1on.
In the accompanying drawings,
Figure 1 is a perspective view of my binding device;
Fig. 2 is a perspective view and Fig. 3 is a cross section showing my device applied to binding a hose pipe to a metallic pipe;
Fig. 4 is a cross section showing a slight modification.
In these figures, A is the metallic pipe, B the rubber hose pipe into which the metallic pipe is spigoted, and C a strap which 1s tightly wound around the rubber hose B to bind it onto the metallic pipe with a uniform pressure so as to obtain a fluid tight joint. A strap made of strong woven tape is very suitable for the purpose, but other flexible binding material may be used. D is a metallic rectangular loop through which the strap 0 is passed twice to form a bight E. In other words the strap 0 is doubled and the loop D slipped onto this doubled portion so as to form the bight E, such bight being adapted to go around the hose pipe B at the place where it is to be bound to the metallic pipe A. The strap C has permanently fastened to it at one end, a second rectangular metallic loop F through which the strap after passing through the loop D is also passed, such loops D and F being ar- Specification of Letters Patent.

but any other suitable fastener may be employed. A convenient plan for fastening the loop F and buckle G to the strap G, is
by threading the end of the strap C through the frame of the buckle G and through the loop F, then bending back the said end' and stitching it at H.
The bight E having been passed onto the hose pipe at the place where it is to be bound to the metallic one, the strap is drawn taut so as to pull the fixed loop F and the buckle G close up to the loop D and also tighten the bight E around the hose pipe, the loop D providin the necessary mechanical purchase. he free end of the strap is now passed around the outside of the bight E from the loop D to the loop F through which it is threaded or reeved (Figs. 2 and 3), (or over a pin K resting upon the loop F, Fig. 4:) and then without slackening the tension, the strap C is passed back again from the loop F to the buckle Gr through the space between the buckle bar and the prongs, the latter being caused to clench or engage the strap so that it cannot slip back whereby tension is maintained. The loop F also provides the necessary purchase, so that a two fold purchase is obtained to bind the strap very tightly around the hose. If any loose end of the strap is left projecting beyond the buckle G this loose end is doubled or folded as shown at I and the doubled portion held closely and compactly against the outer turn of the strap 0 by a clip such as J. This clip consists of a strip of flexible metal which is a good deal longer than the width of the strap. It is placed transversely under the outer turn of the strap C and the ends bent over the folded portion I so a to clip and hold the same in place. The device provides an even binding pressure aroimd the rubber pipe so that a fluid tight joint is obtained, and can be applied to pipes of almost any size.
I declare that what I claim is l. A device of the character described, comprising in combination a flexible binding strap, a loop through which said strap is passed to form a bight to receive the hose pipe, a second loop attached to one end of said strap and through which the other end of the strap is passed, after passing through said first mentioned loop, said loops being arranged to provide a two-fold purchase to enable the strap to be drawn very tight, and fastening means attached to one end of the strap by means of which the strap after being wound around the hose pipe is held under tension.
2. A device of the character described, comprising in combination a flexible binding strap, a loop through which said strap is passed twice to form a bight to go around the hose pipe, a second loop attached to one end of the strap and through which the other end of the strap is passed aiter passing through said first mentioned loop fastening means attached to one end of the strap by means of which said strap after being Wound around the hose pipe is held under tension, and means for holding the loose end of said strap compactly against its outer turn.
' 3. A device of the character described, comprising in combination a flexible binding strap, a loop permanently attached to one end of said strap, a buckle permanently attached to the same end of the strap, and
a second loop through which a portion of P said strap is passed to form a bight.
In witness whereof I have hereunto signed my name this 12th day of August, 1918, in the presence of tWo subscribing witnesses.
