Specification of Letters Patent,

Patented 2,

Application filed August a, 1920. Serial No. 401,755.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, SAMUEL E. Annv, JAY J. HERN, and MER E S. MCFADDEN, citizens of the United States, residing, respectively, at Fellows, Fellows, and Taft, in the county of Kern, State of California, have invented a new and useful Sucker-Rod Hanger, of which the following is a specification.

It is the object of this invention to provide a simple but effective means whereby objects, such as sucker rods, may be sus-. pended and held in position for use.

It is within the province of the disclosure to improve. generally and to enhance the utility of devices of that type to which the vention, parts appearing in section; Figure 2 is a section taken through the line 2--2 of Figure 1; and Figure 3 is a section taken on the line 3-'3 of Figure 1.

In carrying out the invention there is provided a casing 1 of rectangular box-like outline, the casing being open at one side, as indicated by the numeral 2 and being open at the back, as denoted by the numeral 3. The casing 1, has a bottom at having a dependingfirst flange 5, the casing including a front 6 having a diagonal slot 7. The casing 1 embodies a side wall 8 provided with a downwardly slanting inner surface 9 disposed parallel to the slot 7 the wal18 being supplied with an external longitudinal rib 10 located in alinement with the front 6. The casing 1 has a top 11 prolonged to form a second flange 12 extended beyond the side wall 8.

The-casing may be mounted on a support of any desired sort, the support, ordinarily,

being some part of a well drilling rig. In

"a depending flange 15 and a horizontal flange 16. I The casing 1 is disposed against the depending flange 15 of the support 14;, the flange 15 constituting a closure for the back of the casing 1. The flange 5 rests against the outer'surface of the part 15 of the support ll, the flange l2 overhanging the part 16 ofthe support. Securing elements 17 unite the flange 12 with the part 16 and unite the flange 5 with the lower portion of the element 15, v

A roller 18 is located in the casing 1, be-

tween the front 6 and the flange 15 on the support 14: the roller projecting through the open side 2 of the casing 1, as denoted by the numeral 19 in Figure 1. The periphery ofthe roller 19 moves in contact with 'the slanting surface9 of the side wall 8. The roller 18 has an axle 20 mounted to move in the slot' 7 of the casing 1.

ber of casings may be mounted on the sup port 14 in the! manner hereinbefore de- (released, the roller 18 will move down-- wardly, the roller being moved transversely,

since the roller cooperates with the down-v wardly slanting surface 9. The sucker rod 21 will be bound between the J projecting portion 19 of the roller 18 and the side wall 8 of an adjoining casing 1, the rib 10 preventing outward movement, and consequent displacement, of the sucker rod 21.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is A rod clam comprising a support; a boxlike rectangu ar casing open at the back and at one side, the support constituting a closure for the open back of thecasing, the casing including a side wall provided with a downwardly slanting inner surface, the sidewall having an external longitudinal rib, a top prolonged beyond the side wall. to form a flange overhanging the support, a bottom having a depending flange resting against the support, and a front having a diagonal slot disposed parallel to the downwardly slanting inner surface of the side wall; securing elements connecting the flanges with the support; a roller projecting out of the open side of the casing and operating to bind a rod In practical operation, any desired numg r r r v1,4145
