ELECTRICAL CONNECTER Filed June 29, 1957 Raga/ A. Tod/fi M BY Mjf w% WITNESS ATTORNEYS Patented Mar. 8, 1938 UNITED STATES 2,110,513 ELECTRICAL CONNECTEB Ralph August Toelke,
Cincinnati, Ohio Application June 29,1937, Serial No. 151,030
This invention relates to electrical connecters and has for an object to provide a device of this character which may be substituted for conventional outlet boxes in wiring systems, and which will be formed of 'a few strong simple and durable par-ts, which will be inexpensive to manufacture, and which will not easily get out of order.
With the above and other objects in view the invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter fully described and claimed, it being understood that various modifications may be resorted to within the scope'oi the appended claim without departing from -the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification,
Figure l is a perspective view of an electrical connecter constructed in accordance with the imvention.
Figure 2 is a plan view of the electrical connecter with the cover removed.
Figure 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of the electrical connecter.
Referring now to the drawing in which like characters of reference designate similar parts in the various views, the electrical connecter is shown to comprise a block Ill having a recess through the front and lateral sides thereof. The block is provided with a socket l2 disposed perpendicular to the recess and opening through one end of the block.
Stationary pins l3 and M are imbedded in the block and project from the bottom wall of the recess ll. Setscrews l5 and I6 extend into the socket from opposite sides thereof, as best shown in Figure 3. nected to the stationary pin l3 by a conductor wire I]. The set screw I6 is electrically connected to the stationary pin 14 by a conductor wire iii.
A cover IQ for the block is provided with a projection which enters the recess H and clamps a cable 2| in the recess. The stationary pins penetrate the insulation of the cable'and engage the conductors 22 or the cable. The service I l opening v The set screw i5 is electrically con- -set screw with the block with cable 23 is engaged in the socket l2 and the conductors 24 of the cable are engaged by the set screws l5 and I6.
e passed therethrough and into the walls 26. The 5 cover is secured to the block by set screws 21.
When applying the electrical connecter the service cable 23 may be inserted in the socket l2 and-the set screws l5 and I6 tightened to penetrate the insulation thereof and engage the con- 10 ductors 24. The block may now be secured in place by the screws 25. The outlet cable 2| may now be trained through the opening II. The
cover 20 is then applied, and secured in place bytightening the screws 21 during which operation 15 the insulation of the cable 2| is penetrated by the screws l3 and M. which latter engage the conducto'rs 22 of the cable and through the instrumentality of the conductor wires l4 and I1, electrically connect the outlet cable to the service 2e cable.
From the above description, it is thought that the construction and operation of the invention will be fully understood without further explanation. 25
What is claimed is: i
An electrical connecter comprising a, block having a recess opening through theiront and lateral sides thereof, there being a socket disposed in the block perpendicular to the recess and opening through one end of the block, stationary pins in the block projecting from the bottom wall of the recess, set screws extending into the socket from opposite sides thereof, a conductor electrically connecting one of the set screws with one of the pins, a conductor electrically connecting the other the other pin, said socket being adapted to receive a cable, said set screws being adapted to engage the conductors of the cable and electrically connect them with. the pins, and a cover for the block provided with a projection adapted to enter the recess and clamp a cable in the pins'penetrating the insulation of the cable and engaging the conductors of the cable. 4
