CLAMP FOR STRINGS, 84C.

SPECIFICATION forming part ofLetters Patent No. 334,711, dated January 19,1886.

Application filed August13, 1855. Serial No. 171.260.

(No model.)

T0 (ZZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, ROBERT LORENZ, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Clampsfor Strings, &c., of which the following is a specification.

This invention has reference to an improved clamp for strings, cords, and ropes; and it consists of a socket-piece having two longr tudinal perforations,throngh which the string is passed in opposite directions, the end of the string beingretained in one of the holes by a suitable key.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a vertical longitudinal section of my improved clamp for strings, &c. Fig. 2 1s a vertical transverse section on line as as, Fig. 1. Figs. 3, 4, and 5 are respectively a front. view, a front view with the. cover detached, and a vertical transverse section on line 3 3/, Fig. 4, of a modified form of my clamp.

' Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.

Referring to the drawings, A represents a socket-piece of any suitable metal, which is provided with two longitudinal holes, a a, that are arranged parallel to or converging toward each other. The string, cord, or rope B is passed first through one hole a, and then over the end of the socket-piece A and back in opposite direction through the second hole a. The end of the string B is secured to the first hole a by a wedgekey, I), whereby the rigid clamping of the string is obtained.

A more ornamental form of the clamp is shown in Figs. 3, 4, and .5, in which the fast ening-key is arranged in a chamber, e, of the socket-piece A, which recess is closed by the detachable cover A. The end of the string B is attached by a wedge-key, b, in. said chamber to the socket-piece A, as shown in Figs. 4 and 5. The string B is passed through holes at one end of the socket-piece A and through a guide-hole at the opposite end of the same, as shown in Fig. 4.

Havingthus described myinvention, Iclaim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1. The combination, in a cord-clamping device, of a stock provided with two perforations side by side and substantially as described.

2. The combination, in a cord-clamping device, of a stock having a chamber and pro vided with two perforations for receiving the cord, and a wedgeshaped locking-pin'iuserted in one of said perforations through said chamber, substantially as described.

3. The combination, in a cord-clamping device, of a stock having a chamber and a sliding cover therefor, and provided with two perforations for receiving the cord, and a wedge-shaped locking-pin inserted in one of said perforations through said chamber, substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as myinvention Ihave signed my name in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
