WATER-C LOSET.

SPECIFICA'JIION forming part of Letters Patent N0. 293,734, dated February 19, 1884.

Application filed September 1, 1583.. (No model.)

To @ZZ whom, t may concern:

Be it known that I, OHARLEs HARRISON, of New York, in the countyand State of New York, have invented a certain new and useful I'mprovement in Tater-Closets, of which the following is a specication.

The object of this improvement is to provide a simple and effective means whereby watercloset bowls or hoppers may be connected with the pipes that are used in conjunction with them.

The improvement is designed, principally, for use in connecting earthenware water-closetl bowls or hoppers with metal pipes which supply water to them.

The improvement consists in4 the combination, with a nozzle or tubular portion of a water-closet bowl or hopper,having ailange at the outer end, and a pipe provided with a flange, of a coupling-ring having arms, a band embracing the arms ofthe said coupling-ring, and adapted to secure this coupling-ring to the nozzle or tubular portion of the water-closet bowl or hopper, another coupling-ringengaging with the flange of the pipe, and means whereby the coupling-rings may be united.

In the accompanying drawings,l Figure l is a side view of a nozzle or tubular portion of a watercloset bowl or hopper, a pipe, and means embodying my improvement for connecting the two parts together. Fig. 2 is a view ofthe same, taken at the plane of the dotted linezv a', Fig. 1, and looking in the direction indicated by the arrows at the ends of such line; and Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section of the same. Fig. 4 is a side view of a nozzle or tubular portion of a water-closet bowl or hopper, a pipe, and means of modied form embodying the improvement, and serving to connect the two parts together; and Fig. 5 is aview of the same, taken at the plane of the dotted line g/ y, Fig. 4, and looking in the direction indicated by the arrowsat the ends of such line. Fig. Gis a side view of a nozzle or tubular portion of a water-closet bowl or hopper, a pipe, and means of modied form embodying the improvement, and connecting the two parts together.

Similar letters of reference designate corresponding parts in all the gures.

In Figs. 1, 2, and 3, A designates a nozzle or tubular portion forming part of a waterthe ends by screws or bolts D.

closet bowl or hopper. It may be the nozzle or tubular portion which conveys the flushingwater into the bowl or hopper. At the outer end it is provided with a circumferential flange, a.

B designates a pipe, which may be made of metal, and is provided, at a short distance from the end, with a circumferential flange, b.

C designates a metal coupling-ring having arms C', that extend past the flange a of the nozzle or tubular portion A of the bowl or hopper.

D designates a band composed of twosections of flexible or resilient metal, secured at This band is passed around the arms O of the couplingring C below shoulders c, with which they are provided externally. The band is provided at its inner circumference with lugs d, that extend over the inner side or back of the flange a of the nozzle or tubular portion of the watercloset bowl or hopper. B y tightening the bolts D the band D will be caused to hug the arms C of the coupling-ring C, so that it will beunable to slip past the shoulders c of these arms. lAs the lugs d of the band extend over the back of the flange c, the coupling-ring C cannot be pulled off the nozzle or tubular portion A of the water-closet bowl or hopper.

The flange b of the pipe B has preferably interposedbetween it and the end of the nozzle or tubular portion A of the water-closet bowl or hopper a packing-ring, E, of india-rubber or other suitable material.

F is a metal coupling-ring, which is arranged in contact with the outer side of the ange b of the pipe B, and engages with the couplingring C. As here shown, the coupling-ring F is externally threaded and the coupling-ring C internally threaded, and the engagement of these coupling-rings is effected by these screwthreads. By turning the coupling-ring F the pipe B may be forced toward the outer end of the nozzle or tubular portion A of the watercloset bowl or hopper, so that the packingring E will be tightly clamped between them and a tight joint formed.

It will be observed that the lange c of the nozzle or tubular portion A of the water-closet bowl'or hopper is continuous, and hence it is of great strength.

lIn the example of my improvement which I IOO have shown in Figs. 4t and 5, all the parts are the same in construction and operation,except in certain particulars, which I will no W mention. The arms C of the coupling-ring @have shoulders c', that extend over the flange a, of the nozzle or tubular portion A of the watereloset bowl or hopper, aswell as shoulders c, against which the band D abuts. These arms must therefore be sprung apart to allow their shoulders c to pass the lange (whenever the coupling-ring is to be attached to or detached from this flange; and hence they must be Iliade ol' ilexible or resilient metal. rlhe band D is shown as made in one piece, bent into circular form and fastened at the ends by a bolt, D. It will be made of ilexiblc or resilient metal, as in the case of the band irst described. The band in this example of my improvement has no lugs; but it secures the coupling-ring C to the ilange a by forcing and holding the shoulders c' of the arms C' in engagement therewith. The llange (L may be provided with an abutment, a, which will preclude the arms G' 'from turning around the ilange, and will facilitate the screwing ofthe coupling-rings together.

In the example of my improvement which is shown in Fig. (i, all the parts are constructed and operate as in Figs. Ll: and 5, except that the arms C are bent inwardly to form shoulders c; and hence the shoulders c do not necessarily project beyond the main portions of the arms. rlhe band D will alsohave less projecjection in this particular example oi' my improvement.

This improvement may be used to connect any pipe to a water-closet bowl or hopper, although it is especially designed to connect a water-supply pipe. It will be available in connecting a vent-pipe.

What I claimas my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

l. The combination, with a nozzle or tubular portion of a water-closet bowl or hopper, having a flange at the outer end, and a pipe provided with a iiange, of acoiipling-ring having arms, a band embracing the arms of the said coupling-ring, and adapted to secure this coupling-ring to the nozzle or tubular portion of the water-closet bowl or hopper, another coi'ipling-ring engaging with the flange of the pipe, and means whereby the coupling-rings maybe united, substantially as speciiied.

2. rlhe combination, with a nozzle or tubular portion ol' a water-closet bowl or hopper, having a ilange at the outer end, and a pipe provided with a ilange, of a coupling-ring having externally-shouldered arms, a band embracing the arms, abutting against the shoulders thereof', and provided with lugs that lap over the back ofthe ilangc of the nozzle or tubular portion ot' the water-closetbowl orhopper, another coupling-ring engaging with the ilange oi" the pipe, and means whereby the couplingrings may be united, substantially as specified. p
