ELECTRIC-IRON PLUG-Q Application filed February 9, 1828. Serial No. 617,917..
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANK H. HAkLEr, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Detroit, in the county of Wayne and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Elec trio-Iron Plugs, of which the following is it may be easily and quickly installed on the usual cord, conductor or flexible member by 1 1n 2is agside elevation of one of the a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
In my companion application filed under even date there is disclosed an electric iron switch necessitating the use of a connector between the usual plug and ,the switch in i order that the switch may be included in one 'side of the electric circuit, and to obviate the necessity of usin such a connector, I provide a speciaLplug that may be substituted for the usual plug and thuspermitof my switch'beingconveniently'used iii connection with an electric iron.
My improved plug .is constructed so that which an electriciron is connected to a source if electrical energy, and the constructio' of the plug will be hereinafter described and then claimed.
Reference will now be had to the drawin wherein igure 1 is a side elevation of an electric iron provided with my switch and a special members or sections, and
a is a longitudinal sectional view of --thepug.
In the dra the reference numeral 1 denotes. an electrically heated iron having a handle '2 with apush button switch 3 at the forward end thereof, and at the rear end of a detachable plug comprising members or sections 5 and 6 connected together by not I equipped screws 7. The plug members or sections are made of insulation material and the confronting faces thereof provided button switch 3.
4 on which is mounted Molmted in" the recesses 10 is the end of a flexiblecasing or conduit 19 containing a cable 20 having leading in wires 21 and 22 with the wire 21 connected to the socket 12 and the wire 22 connected to the binding post 17 of the connector 15.
From the foregoing it will be observed that the electrical connections enclosed b the pl rmit of the push button switc 3 mum} the electrical operatin' circuit of the iron 1, and by t eplug, switch and appurtenant parts an ordinary electric iron may be 'pped to permit of the user easily contro l lidg rent to the iron.
' A referred form of plug has been shown and escribed but I would have it understood that the construction is susceptible as are ble by the to such-changes ap dad claim.
