I The rod I4 is slidably guided in the tubular shank H to adjust: the jaws 3.I-32--33' as will appear more fully hereinafter.

In order to adjust the jaws 3 I3233 upwardly and outwardly, the axial rod I4 has a tension coil spring 43 disposed thereover between the upper triangular bracket 38 and a collar 44 fitted to the rod I4 proximate to the lower end I5 thereof. The spring 43 is anchored to the collar 44 and serves to impel the shaft I4 upwardly relative to the upper triangular bracket 38 tov retract the jaws 3I3233 inwardly as shown in Figure 1. This will serve to displace the rod I4 upwardly which is provided with: a transverse pin 45 that projects through a vertical slot 46 provided in the threaded shank 4 I. A knurled nut. 4.! threadablyengages the shank M to displace the transpin 45 downwardly and thus spread the jaws- 3I-32-'33 outwardly against the urge of the tension spring 43.

While: I have illustrated and described a preembodiment of this invention, it must be understoodthat the invention is capable of conslderabl'e variation and modification without. de-

parting from the spirit of the invention. I, there- ,me, do not wish to be limited" to the precise details olconstruetion' set forth, but desire to avail myself of such variations and modifications as come: within the scope of the appended claims. I claim 1. A grapple comprising an elongated shank, a first yoke onsaid shank, a plurality of pairs of lovers or equal length spaced around said yoke and individually pivoted to said yoke at one end,

-a law for each pair of levers; means pivoting the "other end of each lover of a pair to its jaw so that said levers of. a pair will be positioned in parallel relation and in a plane including the axis said second yoke and one 01 saidjaws, and means for relatively moving said yokes for moving said jaws toward or away from said shank.

2. A grapple comprising an elongated shank, av first. yoke on said shank, a plurality of pairs of levers of equal length spaced around said yoke and individually pivoted to said yoke at one end, a jaw for each. pair 01 levers, means pivoting the other end of each lever of a pair to its jaw so that said-.leversof a pair will be positioned in parallel relation and in a plane including the axis of said shank and extending radially thereof, a second yoke on said shank, links each pivoted to said sec- 0nd yoke, and one of said jaws, and threaded colla-r means on said shank for relatively moving said yokes for moving said jaws toward or, away from said shank.
