To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, Gnonen C. LA SARES,
I a citizen of the United States of America,
residing at Springfield, in the county of Hampden and Commonwealth ofMassachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Jump Ropes, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in jump ropes. p
The invention relates to'a new and novel means of attaching the rope or cord to the handle part of the device, whereby, when the handle is gripped the cord is permitted to turn or revolve freely in the handle without any possibility of the cord becoming twisted or kinked.
The invention, broadly, comprises means for rotatably mounting the gripping handle on a spindle device, which device'is fixedly connected to the rope cord.
Referring to the drawings:
Fig. 1 is an elevational, view, partly in section, showing the rope and the means of attaching the same to the handle and the gripping portion of thehandle beingshown rotatably connected to the cord. i i
Fig. 2 is a vertical transverse sectional view on the line 22 of Fig. 1.
Referring to the drawings in detail:
1 desi nates the cord or r0 e ro er which.
is composed of a suitable material as a woven window weight cord. 2 is the rotatable handle or gripping portion which the user grasps when the rope is used. 3 is the shaft or spindle on'which the handle 2 is mounted. This spindle is connected to'the shaped member a that is formed with an opening through the axis thereof. The member 3 extends into the part 4 and'is attached thereto by means of the'pin 5. The ends of the cord 1 are connectedto parts 4, preferably by gluing as indicated by the lines 6. hen the user grasps the handles 2 and rotates the cord over the head and below the feet as the device isgenerally used, the spindle 3 will turn loosely in the handle 2 thus preventing any possibility jof'the cord becoming twisted and also making it easier for the operator to use. The end of the spindle 3 is formed with a knob 7 for retaining the same in place on the spindle. It will be seen from this description that I have provided a very simple and inexpensive way of connecting the rope of the dc vice to the handle permitting the cord to turn freely therein. What I claim is: l. A jump rope construction, having in combination, with the rope, of handle members formed with openings therein, devices loosely mounted in the openings of the handle members, devices formed to receive the loosely mounted devices in the openings of the handles, means for securing the two devices together, the second'mentioned devices serving to secure theends of the rope thereto, whereby when the rope is rotated the handle members willremain stationary and the loosely mounted devices therein will turn with the rope as described.
2. In a jump rope construction, the combination with the rope thereof, of a member formed with an opening to receive an end of the rope, a spindle membeigmeans for connecting the spindle to the rope receiving member comprising a pin passing through the member and the spindle, a handle member proper rotatably mounted on the spindle whereby when the rope is turned the.
spindle will turn or rotate in the handle member.
3. In a jump rope construction, the combination with the rope, of handle members formed with openings therethrough, spindles loosely mounted .in theopenings and projecting beyond the ends towards the ends of the rope, members having openings therethrough to receive the projecting ends of the spindles, means in the members for securing the same to the spindles, the ends of the rope being fixedly secured to the members and rotating therewith and the spindles when the ropeis rotated whereby the handle members will remain stationary in the hands of the user, as described.
