- E. B. KNAPPQ WHIP. N0. 369,015. Patented Aug. 30, 1887.




SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 369,015, dated August so, 1887.

Application filed June 18, 1887. Serial No. 241,757. (No model.)

To all whom, it may concern:

Be it known that I, EDMUND BURKE KNAPP, a citizen of the United States, residingat San J aeinto, in the county of San Diego and State of California, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Whips, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to an improvementin whips; and it consists in the construction and arrangement of the parts of the same, whichwill be more fully set forth hereinafter, and particularly pointed out in the claims.

The object of my invention is to provide a 'whip'end to which the lash is adapted to be attached, and is given a swivel movement to prevent the same from becoming twisted. I attain this object by the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein like letters of reference indicate similar parts in the several views, and in which-- Figure l'is a perspective view of a portion of a whip with my improvement applied in connection therewith. Fig. 2 is adetail view in perspective of the said whip end,on an enlarged scale. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal vertical section of the whip end.

The ring C and the loop D are adapted to be revolved around the socket B, the said ring 0 having three movements in the groove 1;.

The lash is secured to theloop D,and through the movement of the said loop and the ring 0, to which it is attached, the said lash also is given movement, and prevented by said movement from becoming entangled with the end of the whip or being twisted around the same, as will be readily understood.

The novelty and utility of my improved whip beingobviously apparent and appreciable, it is unnecessary to further enlarge upon the same herein.

Having thus described my invention, I claim-- 1. As an improved article of manufacture, the hereindeseribed whip end,oonsisting of a socket having an annular groove formed therein, a ring adapted to have movement in said groove, and a rigid loop rigidly secured to the said ring and projecting outwardly from the end of the said socket, substantially as described.

' 2. The combination, with the whip-stock, of the socket ferrule B, having the annular groove 1) formed near the end thereof, the ring 0, mounted in said groove, and the rigid loop D, rigidly connected to said ring and having movement therewith, substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in I presence of two witnesses.
