SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 34:1,713, dated May 11, 1886.

Application filed January O, 1886. Serial No. 188,095, (X0 model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, JOHN YOUNG, of the city of Tittin, in the county of Seneca and State of Ohio, have invented and claim a new and useful Hose Coupling and Hydrant Attachinent Device, of which the following is a specification.

The object and purpose of my invention are to make hydrant connections and attachments and also couple hose without the usual threadcut or screw attachment, as shown in Figure 1, which is a perspective view of the device as applied to a hydrant. Fig. 2 shows the fastening in connection with two lengths of hose and uncoupled. Fig. 3 shows a sectional view. Fig. at shows the section of the ini; provcment to be used as a hydrant attachment.

The invention relates particularly to that clase of hose and pipe couplings in which the meeting sections of a coupling are clamped together by a hook on one section engaging pins or studs on the other; and the invention consists in certain features of construction and combinations of parts, as will be hereinafter described and claimed.

In the drawings, E E designate the two sections of my coupling, each of which has a suitable portion, 1, which may be fitted in and clamped to the lengths of hose. The section E is provided with a forwardly-projected nipple, O, and at the juncture of such nipple with the body of the section I form a groove, F, to receive the packing-ring D, which fits and is usually held in said ring by its elasticity, being preferably formed of rubber. This section B also has lateral or radiallyprojected studs G. The section E has its outer end formed with a month or enlarged portion, 2, fitted to receive the nipple O, and at the inner end of this month I form a groove, F, in which is titted the packiugring l),sin1i lar to the ring D, before described.

To the section E is pivoted the hook A, formed preferably with arms A, connected by a crossyoke comprising a loop, B, and a bar, I, arranged to be engaged by a pivoted button, II, in certain adjustments of the parts, in order to lock the sections coupled.

The loop B forms a convenient means by which to suspend the hose while in use from a hook or nail on a ladder or other support, in connection with which the bar I andbutton H cooperate to prevent any disjointing of the hose when so supported. This button II is pivoted at h on section E.

In operation, to couple, the sections are pressed together, as will be understood from Figs. 2 and 3, and the hook and button or latch I-I set to the position shown in Fig. 1. To uncouple, the reverse of the operation as above described will be necessary.

It will be not-iced that the paekingrings are so disposed that a double packing is provided for the joint, one at D and the other at D, also that such packing-rings are held in place without separate fastening devices.

In operation, when the sections ,E E are clamped by the proper adjustment of the hook, the button H is turned so one of its ends will bear against the rear side of the bar which joins the hooked arms in such manner as to prevent any rearward movement of the bar and the arms it connects, so the hook cannot be freed until the latch is released. In this arrangement the latch rests flat against the surface of the section and the strain thereon is exerted in the direction ofits length, so that it cannot be bentout of the way.

By arranging the packing-ring D at-the juncture of nipple O with section E, and in a groove formed to receive it, even in case the inner joints ot'the sections should leak this will prevent the passage of the water.

\Vhat I claim is- The improved hosc coupiing herein described, consisting of the section E, having smds G, the Section E, the hooks Hi, pivoted to section E, a bar, I, and loop B, connecting said hooks, the latter being adapted for use in suspending the hose, and the latch H, pivoted to the section E and adjustable into engagement with the rear side of bar I, all substantially as and for the purposes specified.

JOHN YOUNG. [n s] In presence oi'- J AS. F. LEAHY, L. G. COLE.
