H. FALLA CONNECTER Filed Aug. 28, 1926 WITNESS:
Patented June 17, 1930` UNITED STATES mazzi.
HEDLEY FALLA, OF MIJFGRD, NEW HAMPSHIRE CONNECTER Application filed August 28, 1926-. v Serial No. 132,156.
v the invention further consists of the following novel features and details of construction, to be hereinafter' more fully described,
illustrated inthe accompanying drawing,V
and pointed out in the appended claim. In the drawing:
Figure 1 is an elevation of the invention partly broken away to illustrate the application thereof. i
, Figure 2 is a top plan yView thereof. Figure 3'is a transverse-section taken on line 3-3 of Figure 2. i Y.
i Figure 4C is a longitudinal section of a modified form of the invention and illustrating the construction and application of the clamping members and of aV stop cock used in conjunction therewith.
f Figure 5 is an elevation of another modi-V fication of the invention.
Referring to the drawing in detail, wherein like characters of reference denote corre-V sponding parts, the reference character 1() indicates a. coupling nipple provided with beads 11 extending circumferentially thereof upon its outer surface and disposedl at spaced'intervals thereon. An enlarged outwardly extending annulariangeportion or abutment 12 is formed at an intermediate point in the length of the nipple.
The broken or adjacent ends of the tubu- '45 lar body portions, suchas the lawn hose, re-
ceive those portions of the nipple upon the opposed sides of the flange 12. Supporting arms'13. carried by and extending in opposite directions fromvthe flange v12 support split clamping bands lll upon the ends thereof. Said bands form at the splits `thereof spaced parallel apertured ears 15 which'are adapted to receive therein fastening elements, in the form of bolts 16.*v lSaid bands Y when regulated by the bolts 16 will compress the tubular body portions upon the beads 11 carried upon they outer surface'of the nipple 10 to retain said bodies against displacement.
The flange 12 serves as an abutment for the meeting or vradjacent ends of the tubular bodies to preventfthe peripheries thereofv from flaring and tearing.
In Figure l ofthe drawing the preferred tive use; the difference and departure incorporated therewith, as embodying the modification is in the nature of a bore 13 communicating the bore of the nipple 10 through the flange 12. Said bore 13 isinteriorly,
form of the invention is disclosed in opera-y i threaded to receive the reduced and threaded 'o attaching end of a stop or pet cock 132. Said cock will permit tapping in on a line for auxiliary use or may effectively Serve as a relief when a leakis discovered in the line.
In/Figure 5 of the drawingl have illus- 'I5 Y' trated a modified form of the invention comprehending anapertured disk 17 withinv which aV threaded sleeve 18 is mounted and heldy against displacementby a jam nut 19 carried thereby. lSaid sleeve 18 is adapted for connection with an air appliance com-l monly' used in theV inflation of pneumaticv`v tires. A supporting armV 2() extends :from
the apertured disk on the periphery Vthereof and at right angles thereto.l A, split clamping band 21 i-s carried upon the remaining end of the supporting arm 2()V and'which is adapted to receive therethrough a'terminal endv 'of'n the tubular body for vretaining the Q n same against displacementzin a manner similar to that as vmentioned in the foregoing L description and accompanying drawing relative to the preferred form of the invention.,A A similar fastening device is also employed for use in connection with the clamping l band 2l. l y f Y The kinvention is susceptible of various i changes in its form, proportions and minor details of construction, and the .right is herein reserved to make such changes as properf point inthe length of the nipple and extend-` ly fall Within the scope of the appended claim. t
Having thus described my invention, What is claimed is:
A pipe connecter comprising a nipple, an
annular flange carried at an appropriate ed horizontally thereof to abut the adjacent end oit' a pipe section carried upon the nip#V ple2 a supporting arm carried by and rigidc lly connected With the outer surface of the flange and projecting therefrom in spaced parallelism to the adjacent Wall of the nipple, and a split clamping` band horizontally arranged about the nipple parallel with the flange and having connection at one end thereof with the outermost projecting end of the supporting arm whereby the aforementioned end of a pipe section may be Vil) rigidly retained upon the nipple and the portion thereof unenga'ged by the clamping band may swell circumferentially of the nipple and between the space between the latter and said arm.
ln testimony whereof l allix my sionature.
