CHARLES R. FAY, OF AUBURN, NEW YORK.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 393,062, dated November 20, 1888.
Application filed June 4, 1888.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, OHALES R. FAY, of the city of Auburn, New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hooks for Pictures and other Analogous Articles, of which the following is a description, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of my invention, and Fig. 2 represents one of the blanks from which the hook is bent.
The object of myinvention is to furnish the double curved hooks of ordinary construction for use with a molding with means by which a single cord may be secured at its end thereto in such manner that it will support a weight without tilting sidewise. This I accomplish by furnishing the hook A B O with the ears d e, which are formed by the slotsffffnpon the sides of the blank from which the hook is made, the ears (I 6 being bent forward to raise them above the plane B of the hook. Another slot, is cut from one side of the blank inward to its center, so that the cord may be (No model.)
passed downward through it after being se- 25 cured around the ears d e, as is shown in Fig.
1, and by this means the weight of any article suspended thereby is made to draweevenly downward upon the hook.
Having thus described my invention, what I go claim asnew, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The doublecurved hook A B 0, provided with projections d 6, turned, outward in opposite directions to form a cleat, the same being 35 placed between the hooks A and O, substantially as described.
2. The double-curved book A B 0, provided with-projections d 6, turned outward in opposite directions to form a cleat, and having aslot, 40 9, below said projections and extending from one side of said hook to its median line, substantially as described.
