IMPROVEMENT |N HALTERs. I
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 153,724, dated August 4, 1874; application filed April 29, 1874.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, REiNHARD SGHMTDT, of Milwaukee, in the county of Milwaukee in the State of Wisconsin, have invented certain Improvements in Halters, of which the following is a specification My invention has for its object the hitching of horses; and consists in a rope with snaphooks on its ends, and a ring and runner on the rope, in which the snap-l1ook at one end of the halter is snapped, and then a slip-noose is formed, so that, it' clasped around a post or any projection, it Will hold secure, While the other end is hitched to the bridle or any other fixture on the head of a horse.
Figure l is a vieur of my invention.
A is the halter rope; B B', the end of the rope formed into grummets, into which the snap-hooks C C are secured. D is aleather slide on therope, Which clasps around and slides on it. E is a ring, which passes through the two edges ofthe leather slide D, and through this ring the rope A passes, so that the force pulling ou the rope A brings the strain on ring E and the rope A, and not directly on the slide, the slide only facilitating the sliding of the ring on the rope.
The hook C is hooked into ring E, and as the halter-rope is pulled the noose formed by the hook C hooked into the ring E is slipped up and clasped firmly around anything that may be Within the noose.
I claim as my invention- A halter consisting ofthe rope A, provided with hooks C C and slide D, in combination with ring E, connected to said slide, and clasp-4 ing around the rope, substantially as de- QUINCY A. OLIVER.
