ACCESSORY T0 TURNBUCKLE WRENCH Filed June 29, 1944 Inventor 7'HOMA5 if f/Auc K,
Patented July 9, 1946 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE ACCESSORY T TURNBUCKLE WRENCH 77 Thomas F. Hauck, Roscoe, Calif.
Application June 29, 1944, Serial No. 542,638
provements in tools and 'more particularly to a a wrench accessory especially adapted for actuating turnbuckles.
The principal object of the present invention is to provide an accessory for a turnbuckle wrench constructed for facilitating the actuation of turnbuckles particularly on rigging aircraft cables.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent to the reader of the following description.
In the drawing:
Figure 1 represents a side elevational view of the wrench accessory.
Figure 2 is a top plan view of Figure 1. s Figure 3 is a longitudinal sectional View taken on the line 33 of Figure 2.
Figure 4 is an end elevational view of the wrench accessory.
Figure 5 is a cross-section taken on the line 5-5 of Figure 1.
Referring to the drawing wherein like numerals designate like parts, it can be seen that the wrench accessory consists of a pair of jaw arms 5, 5 having in continuation thereof jaw heads I with 1 Claim. (CI. 81-13) at right angles. As is clearly shown in Figure 3, the barrel I0 is longitudinally slotted at H for receiving and guiding a pin l2 which extends I through the tube 9 and into the barrel I0 through stepped-in openings 8 for accommodating the swaged ends of cables such as are used on rigging aircraft cables. At this point, let it be understood, that the wrench accessory is especially adapted to hold the swaged ends of a cable so as not to allow the cableto turn when the turnbuckle barrel is being rotated 'by the wrench proper. The stepped-in openings 8 in the jaw heads 1 serve to engage the swaged ends of the cable to hold the cable stationary while the turnbuckle is being so actuated.
The tool further consists of the tube 9 into Which extends an elongated barrel Ill. The tube 9 forms part ofthe arm 6 or is integrally formed or secured at right angles to said arm thereto, while the barrel I0 similarly carries the arm 5 the slot H. 1
An elongated tension spring [3 has one end anchored as at Hi to the arm 5 while its other end is secured to the pin I 2, the spring extending longitudinally in the barrel l0 and is completely enclosed therein.
It can now be seen, that the tool can be expanded and the jaw head I placed over the swaged ends of cables connected to a turnbuckle (not shown) and thus the cables are held while the turnbuckle (not shown) is rotated by the wrench propen.
While theforegoing specification sets forth the invention in specific terms, it is to be understood that numerous changes in the shape, size and. materials may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed hereinafter.
Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:
A' wrench accessory for engaging the swaged ends of cables attached to a turnbuckle, comprising a pair of cable engageable jaws and a slidable connection transversely to and between said jaws,
.said connection consisting of a short tubular by said jaws will accommodate themselves to hold the cables exteriorly to the ends of the turnbuckle.
