To all whom it may concern:

anything else from which it may be desirable to suspend it. The two pieces A andB are united by a hinge at z, and the opposite end, K, of the piece B is provided with thepin e, which is preferably attached to the piece B by the pin having a shoulder cut on its upper end, the said end projecting up through a hole in the piece B, (which thus rests on the shoulder,) and said end being then flattened downvice, one of said jaws being provided with the hinged portion and bearing. the penetratingpoint, and the other having its end doubled upon itself and provided with an aperture to receive the point, the jaws adapted to be locked by a slide.
