July 9, 1935. J. F. TUCKER CABLE HANGER Filed Feb. 1, 1935 Patented July 9, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT. OFFICE 7 2,007,820 CABLE HANGER John F." Iucker, West Haven, 001111., assignor to West Haven Buckle Company, West Haven,

C'onn., a corporation Application February 1, 1935, Serial No. 4,502

1 Claim.

was passed and around which a strap was turned,

so as to be gripped between the loop and the hook-member.

The object of this invention is to'add to the holding qualities of the patented device by the addition of a second loop, and the invention consists in the construction as hereinafter described and particularly recitedin the claim.

In the accompanying drawing:

Fig. 1 is a perspective front view of a cable hanger constructed in accordance with my invention; I I

'Fig. 2 is a perspective 'rear View of the same; and

Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view.

In carrying out my invention, I employ a hookmember 5 formed from a single piece of metal bent into U-shape to form a bar 6, which is forwardly offset, and the ends 1 and 8 hooked to engage with a supporting-wire 9 or other device.

A strap III of strip-metal or other suitable material has one end ll folded over the bars I2 and I3 of a loop-member l4, through which loop the ends of the hook-member extend. The other end !5 of the strap is passed around a cable or device to be supported and through a supplemental loop-member I 6, thence over the bars, l2 and I3 of the first loop-member, and the metal folded around them and beneath the bar 5 of the hook, so that when strain is applied, the

bar 6 of the hook is crowded against the bar l3 of the loop, so as to compress the two reaches of metal between them. At the same time the upper bar I! of the supplemental loop I6 is crowded against the bar l2 of the first p, so as to grip the two reaches of metal passing between them, thus forming two gripping points instead of one, as in the previous construction.

The addition of a second loop adds but little to the cost, but doubles the gripping capacity of the device and adds to the assurance against slipping of the supporting-strap.

I claim:

A hanger comprising a hook-member having a forwardly-offset bar and two loop-members through which the hook-member extends, combined with a strap folded around the loop adjacent the offset bar and then passed through the second loop and. over the firstspecified loop, whereby when strain is applied, the strap will be gripped between both bars of the first loop.
