CONCRETE ANCHOR Filed March 28, 1928 Patented June 3, 1930 nane. PEEIS, 0F LYNBBOQK, NEW roan conens'rn ANCHOR Application filedMaroh 2a, 1928. Serial No. 265,300.

I invention relates general to metal faste ing devices for concrete work and has pnrt cularrefcrence. to a so-called concrete anchororinsert designed for securing to concrete floors, walls,.:ceilingsor other cement shafting, machinery and the like.

Thefmain object ofmy invention is the provision of 1 a; concrete anchor or insure which is of: simple; construction, inexpensive toimake and. which is of such configuration that itobtains-a maximum amount of supstructures, such articles as hangers, beams,

- portfromithe surrounding concrete and is se- .form a ball and socket connection with large curely held therein against displacement and can withstand greatstrains.

Another. object of the invention is the provision of a concrete anchoror insert having a bell-shaped or spherical upperchamber and an outwardly flaring lower chamber-which co-operate with a removable rocker nut to bearing surface, assuring even distribution oiload' with less danger of breaking of anchor housing, permitting maximum radial and axial adjustability of the supporting bolt and locating the point of greatest strain as far from the entrance part of the insert as pos 'sible, wherethe anchor housing because of its shape and the supportit receives from Numerous otherobjects and'advantages of i the invention will be apparent as it is bet-- ter understoodifrom the followingdescrip- '7 tion,lwhich, taken 'in connection with the 7 ferered embodimentthereof.

Said aninilar flange lGhasa-t two opposite points bifurcated projections'which form notches 17 which are to receive a fastening screw or nail to temporarily fasten the anchor housing to a mold, frame'or scafi'oldinguntil the concrete or cement material has been poured around the anchorhousijng and'has set and dried. It will be iO ed thatthe inward shoulder or throat part 14- divides; the i anchor housing into, two.- parts, namely, into. an uppe n inn r be l shaped r p e i a chamber 1 8, and a lower andouter outwardly fiaring'partf 19. V i

The nut 20 has; central threaded perforation .22 to receive of tQ: supporting bolt 23 whoseopposite end terminates in a screw 11111324; ,As illustrated indotted-line position, thejsupporting bolt may be wung r tilted a iallyin' direction from; the position of natural rest shownin full l nes- Thi radial r diu tahility or h ngeef Po t on 1f the supporting olt is madecpossible by the universal joint, con;- nection between the rocker nut 20-and the curved inner wall of the bell-shapedchamber,

. and-the extent ofadjiustability-is limitedonly by the angle of theQutwardfiareofthe wall of the :lowerchamber of the anchor housing;- a The supportingbolt 23 is also.

This will permit a tightening or loosening of the bolt to accommodate variations in thedimen'sion of thearticle support ed by the bolt 23; In order to stop the rocker nut 20 from turning when the bolt '23 is screwedhome, integral lugs 25 are provided at opposed pointsof the inner'wall of the bell-shaped chamber. 7 preciated by thoseskilledin the artthat it is the novel exterior and interior construe-f tion and configuration of the anchorlhfous mg and the novel construction and co-operating shape-of the r Ocker nut-QOwhich make" this concrete anchor or insert superior to anysimilar deiriceoi which I am now aware; j The-point ofgreatest strain in my im proved constructionis located far from the opening into the housing at theconstricted throat part 14,? which forms an outer conv cavity which is filled outandgreatly' rein forced by the surrounding concrete. An

other such concavity or hollow is iormedbetween the projecting flange 12 and the depending wall filled out withconcrete which helps to sup-' It will be readily appart 13, and this hollow'also is 3. In a concrete anchor, in combination, an

z'lhis borrowing of the strength i v ofthe concrete at the most strategical point is peculiar, to my invention, and permits the use of much lighter castings withattendant economythan has heretofore been thought possible; and thefemployment of-even'drawn sheet metal anchor housings.
