FRANK J. ROGERS, INDEPENDENCE, KANSAS, SSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO OWEN ALONZO THOMPSON, OF INDEPENDENCE, KANSAS.

SACK GRIP. v

Application filed January To all whom 2'25 "may concern:

citizen of the .United States, residing at In-' dependence, in the county of Montgomery and State of Kansas, have invented certain new *anduseful Improvements in Sack Grips,of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to iniprovementsin sack grips and has for its object to pro-' vide adevicesomewhat in the formof a mitten [having means for securely gripping'a sack, to be handled by the wearer.

Another object 'of the invention is to provide a flexible sack grip having a palm piece with a number of pin points projecting therefrom for projecting into the sack A still further object of the invention is to provide a sack grip and a guard to which the same is hingedly connected and means for quickly securing the grip to the guard.

WVith the above and such other objects in view as may hereinafter more fully appear,

" I have invented the device illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which:

Figure 1 is a plan view of my sack grip, shown attached-to the hand and wrist of the wearer; v

Figure 2'is a similar-view showing the grip detached from the hand and secured to the guard;

Figure 3is'an enlarged plan view of the device shown open; h i I Figure 4 is a similar view, a reinforcing member being removed;

Figure. 5 is a section on line 55 of ure 3;; and V e Figure 6 is a. detailplan view of the grip, the hand straps being thrown back.

Like reference characters indicate like parts throughout the following specification and in the several views inthe drawings in which 1 indicates a hand grip consisting of a guard member 2, and agrip member 3 hingedly connected together at 4 by means of a hinge lacing 5,-threaded through the eyes 6 of the member a and 7 of the member 3, the hinge edges 8 and 9 of the members 2 and 3 being rounded in order to operate smoothly. The outer face 10 of the member 3 has projecting there-through a plurality of pin points 11, the heads 12 of which are held in place by means of a shield 13, substantially covering the inner surface" ofthe arms and fingers of the operator and 10, 1925. Serial No. 1, 685- 14 ofthe member 3 and being laced through the means of the lacing 15 whereby it may be removed when desired to replace worn out pins. 7

Theopposing sides of the'member 13 are cut away at 16 and 17 for the accommoda-. tlon of-the straps 18 and 19, one end of each of which is stitched to the edges 20 and 21 of the member 3. The free endsof these members 18 and 19 are provided with a hackle andstrap connection 24, forming a hand loop 25 through which the hand .26 may be qulcklypro ected, oras quickly removed. Anextensron 2171s provided on one side of the member 31to which the thumb guardQS is secured. To this guardds fixed a snap member 2*.) for engagment, when desired, with the snapmember on the strap 31, projecting frointhe edge 32 of the guard 2. To the innersurface of said guard 2 is fiXeda pairof straps 33 and 34 forming a wrist -band"35- having a strap and buckle connection 38 whereby said wrist band may be secured to t-he'w-rist 39 of' the wearer.

In lifting heavy sacks such as those containing cement, guano,- grain, etc, and especially those in which a small gripping projection is provided it is diflicult to get a secure hold on the same. Especially is this the case where the sack is sewed which is the common custom now, instead of lheing tied as was formerly the custom. I havealso found that the effort to "hold the sack creates a very great strain upon the-muscles itwaswitha view. 'of-o'erc'oming thisd'ifficulty and makingit possi ble to workmuch faster iii-manually transferring these sacks, that 'I have provided the above described sack grip with which I have found that sacks of the nature referred to may be grippedand held securely with little or no difficulty. It is to be understood that these grips are usedin pairs, one for each hand. In order to avoid the necessity of unbuckling the grip from'the wrist of the user whenever it is desired to operate a hand truck which has been loaded with heavy sacks, I have provided the hinge connection of the grip 3 to the guard 4, and the snap connection between these members so that the operator may quickly remove his hand from the hand band 40, formed by the straps 18 and 19 and snap the members 29 and 30, whereby the member 2 may be held up out of contact with the hand of the wearer so that the hand may be free in order to mannipulate said truck. In order to hold the members 3 and 18 securely together at the center portion to prevent the shoving of the pin points 11 out of place, I have provided a stiffener, 41, on the member 13 to which the member 2 is rigidly fixed by means of bolts 43 and 4a.

The above described device is preferably made of leather, however, it is to be understood that it may be made of any other suitable material.

Having d scribed my invention that which I claim to be new and desire to procure by Letters Patent is:

l. A device of the character described consisting of a palm member having a series of pin points projecting therefrom, means for holding said pins against displacement, said means consisting of a detachable baclrpiece.

2. A device of the character described consisting of a palm member having a series of pin points projecting therefrom, means for holding said pins against displacement, said means consisting of a detachable backpiece, laced to said palm piece.

3. A device of the character described consisting of a palm member having a series of pin points projecting therefrom, means for holding said pins against displacement, said means consisting of a detachable backpiece, laced to said palm piece, and means for holding said back piece and palm member to one another.

' 4. A device of the character described consisting of a palm member having a series of pin points projecting therefrom, means for holding said pins against displacement said means consisting of a detachable backpiece, laced to said palm piece, and means for holding said back piece and palm member to one another, means Ior attaching said palm piece 'to the hand of the wearer.

5. A device of the character described consisting of a palm member having a series of pin points projecting therefrom, means for holding said pins against displacement, said means consisting of a detachable backpiece,

laced to said palm piece, and means for holdin said back piece and palm member to one another, means for attaching said palm piece to the hand of the wearer, a guard member to whichsaid palm member is hingedly connected.

6. A device of the character described consisting of a palm member having a series of pin points projecting therefrom, means for holding said pins against displacement, said means consisting of a detachable backpiece, laced to said palm piece, and means for holding said back piece and palm member to one another, means for attaching said palm piece to the hand of the wearer, a guard member to which said palm member is hingedly connected, means for securing said guard member to the wrist of the wearer.

7. A device of the character described con-v sisting of a palm member having a series of pin points projecting therefrom, means for holding said pins against displacement, said means consisting of a detachable backpiece, laced to said palm piece, and means for holding said backpiece and palm member to one another, means for attachingsaid palm piece to the hand of the wearer, a guard member to which said palm member is hingedly connected, means for securing said guard member to the wrist of the wearer, means for detachably connecting said palm member and guard member. v

8. A device of the character described consisting of a palm member having a series of pin points projecting therefrom, means for holding said pins against displacement, said means consisting of a detachable backpiece,

laced to said palm piece, and means for bold.

ing said back piece and palm member to one another, means for attaching said palm piece to the hand of the wearer, a guard member to which said palm member is hingedly con nected, means for securing said guard member to the wrist of the wearer, means for detachably connecting said palm member and guard member, a lace forming said hinge.

In testimony whereof I my signature.
