LAM P-CHIMNEY PROTECTOR.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 263,743, dated September 5, 1882.
Application filed July 10, 1882. (No model.)
to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanyingdrawings, which form a part of this specification.
Figure l is a perspective view of my im proved lamp-chimney protector detached; and Fig. 2 is a perspective view, showing the same in position for use.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in both figures.
This invention relates to lamp-chimney protectors; and it consists of a collar adjustable upon the neck of a lamp-burner, and having an upright wire carrying a wire ring adjustable upon the lamp-chimney, as will be hereinafter more fully described, and particularly 2 5 pointed out in the claim.
In the drawings hereto annexed, A represents a collar of brass or other suitable metal fitting upon the neck ofa lamp-burner, B, or attached securely thereto by any suitable means.
0 O is an elastic metallic wire attached to the collar A, having abend or bracket, D, near said point of attachment, and extending from thence upwardly, as shown.
E is a ring, formed of a piece of wire, which has at one end a loop or eye, F, by which it is 5 adjustable upon the wire 0, and another loop,
G, to receive its opposite or free end H, by inserting which into the loop G the said ring is formed. It will be seen that by drawing the end H into or out of the loop G the size of ring E may be conveniently adjusted so as to fit a chimney of any size.
.Fig. 2 of the drawings shows my invention in position. It will be seen that by adjusting the ring E upon the chimney near its upper 5 end the wire 0 is caused to lie in contactwith said chimney for the greater portion of its length. It thus serves partly as a hold'r for the chimney, and also to diffuse the heat of the same, thus preventing it from cracking in the event of its being exposed to a cold draft or for other reasons.
I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States- The combination, with the collar A, having upright flexible wire 0, of the adjustable Wire ring E, having loop F fitting upon said wire (J, and loop G, in which its free end H is adjustable, as set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in presenceof two witnesses.
