I f, corresponding with the opening I), and with it surrounding the pastern and held there by spring-catchcs g g on each side of the boot, engaging with projections h h on the casing a.
In order to make a tiglit joint between the parts a and d, the edges in contact may be made sufficiently smooth for the purpose for which the device is to be used 5 or the edge of one of said parts may be provided with a rubber or like packing, 13, cemented or otherwise secured thereto, in order to insure against leakage.
