GEORGE s. oLsoN, or SWIFT CURRENT, snsxn'rcnnwniv, CANADA.


Be it known that I, GEORGE S. OLSON, a subject of the King of Great Britain, residing at Swift Current, in the'P'rovince of Saskatchewan, and Dominion of Canada,1 have invented certam new and useful Improvements in Hasps, of which the follow ing is a specification, p

=This invention relates to new and useful improvements in hasps, 'theprimary object I of the invention beingto provide adouble lock therefor, whereby the closure to which the hasp is appliedmay be securely retained in a closed position; 1 Another object of the invention is to provide a hasp including a plurality of hingedly connected sections, whereby they may execute proper'movement to be associated with a locking element. I

Another object of the inventionis to provide a locking element having means to engage the hasp at two points whereby the latter may be securely retained in alocked.


Still another important object of the inventi'on is to provide a device comprising in combination, a hasp and a pair of locking members adapted for eitherjoint or sepa rate cooperation with the hasp whereby. the hasp may be locked or merely engaged by I oneof the locking members for temporarily hooking the hasp, for example, similar to the well known hook and eyeleth Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent during the staple 18 which is adapted tov extend through the slot 16 ofthe hasp'when'the latter is swung to a locked position. -The course of the following description.

In the accompanyingidrawings forming a part of the application and wherein like Fig. 3 is a side elevation of myfimproved hasp, and

Fig. 4 is a side elevation of my improved locking element.

Referring to the drawings wherein Y for the purpose of illustration is shown thepreferred embodiment of. the invention, the numeral 5 designates a portion of a door, in the present instance, the free edge of which is adapted to abut with a door frame 6.

My improved hasp in the presentinstance Specification of Letters Patent. I PatenteclMay 10, 19 21. a eas filed June 11, 1920. Serial No. 388,100. I

is'illustrated as consisting of three sections pivotally connected together, one endsection 7 forming an anchor plate and, adapted to be secured to a doorframe, an intermediate section'S and an end locking plate orsection 9. The anchorsection 7 .is equipped with a plurality of apertures whereby screws may extend therethroug'h for, securingthe plate to the door frame. The contiguous ends of the sections are formed with, the well known, knuckles 10' and pintles llextenol through the cooperating knuckles for hinglng the sections together.

It is to be particularly noted that the end of the section. 8 adjacent. the locking section 9 is provided with a pair of spaced knuckles 12 and the cut out portion 13 betweenthese knuckles is extended farther inwardly of the intermediate plate 8, than usual, so that when the lmuckle 1a of the locking plate is 1. disposed in lts cooperative position between j the knuckles 12, a slot or a )erture 15 is provided in the plate8, as the nuckle 14 of the locking plate closes the open end of the cut out portion-l3. The usual elongated slot or aperture 16 is provided in the locking plate 9 adjacent its free end forthe well known purpose. Due tothe hinging of the hasp sections, it will be apparent that the sections 8 and,9 are. capable ofmoving outwardlyof the door frame 6. A lOckingele ment or 'platel7 is secured to thejdoor in the 1 well known manner andthe end of the locking element remotefrom the door frame is provided with the-well known form of opposite end of. the locking/element is equipped with a laterally projecting curved extension 19, the s free 'end' of which is b adapted to extend through theopening or 1 aperture 15 in the intermediatehasp'section and overlap a portion of the hinge connection between thesections 8 and'9 when the hasp is disposed in a locked position. In

thismanner, it will be apparent that the locking plate" 9 is locked in engagement with the door atftwo points, one being ad-.

jacent the end of the door which abuts with the other is slightly frelook through the staple a'manner well understood. -Then in order to unlock the hasp, the padldekwould be disconnected from the staple 18 and the locking section,v

' same, or for separate engagement with would be swung upon its pivot so as to disengage the staplefrom the slot 16. The locking plate is thenflpulled outwardly so as to cause its hinged connection with the in-' A termediatesection S-to move away from the extension l9- from the hinge connection and the aper ure 15. th inte m iate plate 8 1 The door would then beunlockedand 'could I ing a pair of sections each having an opening" therein, and means adapted to project through the openings when the sections are --i?rame. If it is'desired to lock the door in door frame, so as tod'isengage the curved readily swingaway from the framed The hasp sections could then be swung to be ar.- ranged mover-lapping relationship to one another and in close proximity to the door a closed position, the operation is simply reversed, It will be also noted that due tor the construction ofthe inventionfthe hasp may readily be folded and positioned upon the locking element 17 as shown in Fig. 2,

whereby the device will occupy a minimum amount of ;space. when being shipped or stored; In cases whereitis merely desired to hook the, door, instead of 'locking'it, the locking plate 9 may be usedas a handle for, engagingthehook 19 with the opening 15 in the intermediate plate or section, sothat it is'not necessaryto cause the staple 18 to pass through the locking plate 91 and use a .padlock for fastening, the door, It will therefore be obvious that the locking mem-: bers maybe used either jointly for locking 1 the door 'or' separately for: merely hooking the door in a closed position.

Theioregoing; description and the drawing has reference to the preferred or ape proved embodiment. of myinvention. It, is to beunderstoodthat such changes may be made in construction and arrangement of parts, materials, dimensions, etc, as may of the appended claims- V Having thus described my invention what 7 prove expedient andfall within the scope r I claim asinew and desire 'to'secure by Letters.
