GHABLESA. DEUSCHER, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION AND METHOD OF MAKING THE SAME.
Application filed August 19, 1922. Serial No. 582,892.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, CHARLES A. DEUSCHER,
a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of the Bronx, in the county of Bronx and State of New York, haveinvented a new and Improved Electrical Connection and Method of Making the Same, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to an electrical connection and has for an object the provision of means whereby a firm, strong, efficient and durable connection can be made in a relatively short time and with a minimum amount of labor.
A further object resides in the provision of a connection and method of making the same which is an improvement over the connection shown in my prior Patent N 0. 1,482,-
288, Jan. 29, 1924, entitled Electric connection.
A further object residesin the particular construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and claimed and shown in the accompanying drawings.
The invention 1s illustrated in the accom- I panying drawings, of which Figure 1 is a section through the preferred form of my invention;
Figure 2 is a side section showing the connection completed.
As shown in the drawings, the invention concerns the connection between two wires or conductors 1 and 2 which, in the form of connection shown in Figure 1, are slipped through a sleeve 3 with their ends extending beyond the same and are then twisted together to form a strong, tight mechanical connection, after which the sleeve 3 is pressed firmly thereon, preferably by uniform pressure thereon simultaneously from all directions. This connection provides a strong direct connection through the wires themselves as well as through the sleeve. 'ilrhe completed construction is shown in 4 ig. 2. v
In the form of the invention shown, it is to be noted that there is in addition to the connection through the sleeve used, a firm, strong mechanical connection through the wires themselves which gives an added strength to the connection.
What I claim is: v
1. A method of joining conductors which includes inserting their ends into and beyond the ends of a sleeve, twisting the conductors within the sleeve together to form a tight mechanical connection, compressing the sleeve upon the twisted portion of the conductor, and then wrapping the end of 00 each conductor around the adjacent portion of the other conductor.
2. A connection between two conductors, which comprises a sleeve slipped over the two conductors, said conductors being twiston ed together within the sleeve with their ends projectin in opposite directions beyond the ends of the sleeves, these projecting ends being wrapped around the adjacent portions of the conductors respectively, the sleeve be- (0 ing compressed upon the twisted portions of the conductors uniformly in aIldirections to produce a tight mechanical joint.
