At the 3unct1on of the two loops is a slide indicated generally at 8 which can be adjusted on the cord and by the adjustmentof which the effective length of the cord is. changed in a well known Way.

The member 11 is constructed to telescope within the member 10, said member also having an aperture 15 through which the strands of the cord pass. I
16 is a spring confined between theend of the member 11 and'the end 13 of the member 10, said spring tending to force the member 11 outwardly and to disalign the apertures 1 1 and 15. This action of the spring clamps the cord between the side 17 of the aperture 15 and the side 18 of the aperture 14, such clamping action being suflicient to'hold the cord from slipping through the slide while the cord is in use.
When it is desired to adjust the length of the cord the operator grasps the slide between the finger and thumb of his hand and presses the ends 13 and 19 toward each other with sufficient pressure to overcome the tension of the spring 16. When this'is done the gripping pressure on the strands of the cord will be. relieved and the slide may be adjusted up or down to shorten or lengthen the effective length of the cord. When the proper adjustment has been secured the slide is released and the spring 16. will force the member 11 outwardly and thus again'grip the cord. This device has the advantage that the release of thegrip on the cord is accomtion of sufficient pressure on the slide to overcome the tension of the spring 16. j
The device has the further advantage that it is simple in construction and inexpensive to manufacture.
I claim- 1. A saxophone support comprising a flexible, supporting member constructed to present an upper loop to encircle the neck of the player, and a lower loop, one of said loops being a doubleloop, a hook supported by the lower loop on which a saxophone is adapted to be hung, a cord-locking slide at the junction of the loops by the adjustment of which the length of the cord is changed,
, said slide comprising two telescopic members, each having an aperture extending transversely therethrough, the cord passing through both apertures three times, and a spring acting on said members and tending to disalign said apertures and thereby grip the cord.
2. A saxophone support comprising a plurality of times, said members being'slid able with relation to each other, and means to cause a disahgnment of said apertures whereby the cord is clamped.
3. A saxophone support comprising a flexible supporting member constructed to present an upper loop to encircle the neck of the player, and a lower loop, one of said loops beinga double loop, a hook supported by the lower loop on which a saxophone is adapted to be hung, a cord-locking slide at the junction of the loops by the adjustment of which the length of the cord is changed, said slide comprising a cup-shaped member having apertures in opposed sides, a second member telescoping within the cup-shaped member and also having an aperture, the cord passing through both apertures a plurality of times, and a spring acting on said members tending to disalign the apertures.
In testimony whereof, I have signed my name to this specification.
