SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 268,778, dated December 12, 1882,

' Application filed October 12, 1882. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, SEYMOUR A. Bos'rwIoK, of Chelsea, in the county of Snfl'olk and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Suspender-Buckles, which invention is fully set forth in the following specification, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings.

This improvement in Suspender-buckles consists in the construction and combination of the divers devices embodied therein, as hereinafter more particularly and fully set forth and claimed.

Figure 1 is a plan view of the body of my buckle as cut from a sheet of metal and before it is folded. Fig. 2 is a similar view of the'lever-cam by which the buckle is secured upon the webbing. Fig. 3 is a similar view of the Fig. 7.

pivotal pin of the cam. Fig. 4 is a plan view of the pivotal stirrup. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the buckle complete, with the webbing shown by dotted lines. Fig. 6 is a longitudinal vertical section taken on line A A, Fig. 5. Fig. 7isaperspective view ot'my buckle slightly modified. Fig.8 is alongitudinal vertical section taken on line 13 B, Fig. 7. Fig. 9 is a transverse vertical section. taken on line C 0,

In said views, (1 represents the bed or body. of the buckle, which is formed with passages b and c, a tongue, (I, ears cc, and an extension, I, when made as shown in Figs. 1, 5, 6. Ears c c are turned at right angles to the plane of bed a, as shown, and pin h, with lever-camf pivoted thereon, is secured in the perforations in ears e, as shown, the ends of said cam be. ing perforated and turned at right angles to its plane at such distance from the holes that plate l free when the webbing is being inserted, after which said lever is turned down upon and covers hook d, as shown in Figs. 6, 7, and 8, such turning down also causing cam fto force the downwardly-curved edge of plate 1 into the webbing and securely hold the same in place.

In Figsr7, 8, and 9' the respective parts are likethose previouslydescribed,exceptthat part lis not extended, as above described, but is of the width of parts 12, while a bar, a, is arranged beneath bed a, and its ears 6 receive pin h, on which cam f is pivoted, as before described, said ears being slightly interlocked in plated, as shown in Fig. 7, to hold barn in position. The webbing passes between cam fand bed a, and when the cam is turned down, as shown in Fig. 8, it acts directly upon webbing in, while platen is forced against body a. The stirrup i is provided with an eye, j, by which to suspend it upon hook d,which enters hole'j, thereby allowing the stirrup to play freely thereon. Said stirrup is also formed with two loo'ps k Ir, the openings k k in which are arranged oblique-to each other and to line A A, Fig. 5, whereby the short front webbings, t t, which are secured thereon, will be thereby arranged at such divergence as will accord with the disbeing raised, as in Fig. 5, in order to leave tam-.e apart of the waistband-buttons ot' the
