F. OTTMAN HOOP FOR LIFIING CROCKS Filed April 10; 1922 Ge in ca dun p1) I Patented June 26, 1923.
UNITED STATES FRANK OTTMAN, OF UTICA, NEW YORK.
HOOP FOR LIFTING CROCKS.
Application filed April 10, 1922. Serial No. 551,064.
To all whom it may concern.
Be it known that I, FRANK OTTMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Utica, in the county of Oneida and State of New York, have invented new and useful Hoops for Lifting Crooks, of which the following is aspecification.
This invention relates to auxiliary handles for cooking vessels, crooks or the like.
The primary object of the invention is to provide means for facilitating the application of the handles to a crock or vessel hav ing relatively straight sides, in a manner to prevent movement of the handles longitudinally of the vessel to which the same is attached.
iVith the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, may be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.
Referring to the drawing:
Figure 1 is an elevational View disclosing the handle attaching means as applied to a .10 crock.
Figure 2 is a fragmental detail view disclosing the connection between the ears and the circular bands.
Figure 3 is a sectional view through the overlapping ends of the band.
Referring to the drawing in detail, the" attaching means embodies a band 5 having its ends extended at right angles as at 6 to provide ears, the ears being apertured to accommodate the bolt 7 by means of which the ends of the band may be secured together.
The band is also formed with overlapping ends 8 and 9, the section 9 having tongues 10 extending outwardly therefrom, which 5 tongues are received in the openings 11 of the adjacent end section, so that the band may be adjusted for use on articles or vessels of various diameters. Formed in the bandat opposite sides thereof, are depressions 12 which receive the extremities of the loop members .13 that are shown as extending laterally from the band.
Handles 14 have hook members 15 formed at the ends thereof, which hook members fit within openings in the loop members 13 to secure the handles to the band. While I have shown and described one band, it is to be understood that any desired number of bands may be secured to a vessel in a manner as described, so that the vessel may be handled with facility.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is r In a device of the character described, a 5 sectional band, each section having depressed portions, loop members having an gular end portions extending through the sections and seated in the depressed portion, handles secured to the loop portions, and means for moving the adjacent ends of sections with respect to each? other to adjust them on a receptacle.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto aflixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
