F. TAYLOR. WHIP HANGER.

No. 501,196. Patented July 11, 1893.

U ITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

FREDERICK TAYLOR, OF LOWELL, MASSACHUSETTS.

WHIP-HANGER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 501,196, dated July 11, 1893.

Application filed J me 12, 1885. Serial No. 168,463. (No model.) i

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, FREnERIcK TAYLOR, a citizen of the United States, residing at Lowell, in the county of Middlese'x and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Whip- Hangers, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to whip-hangers, and consists in a whip-hanger formed of wire, bent into a spiral, and having its adjacent coils drawn together at one side and secured in contact with each other.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a plan and Fig. 2, a front elevation of such a hanger, the adjacent coils being held in contact with each other by a wire provided with attaching eyes; Fig. 3, a front elevation and Fig. 4, a side elevation of such a hanger, adapted to be supported from above but capable of being supported in a horizontal position.

In each of the figures, A denotes a spiral of wire in which the coils or rounds at are gathered together at one side of the spiral and so secured that the adjacent coils remain in contact with each other. The ends of the coil wire A are provided with eyes a.

In Figs. 1 and 2, the clasp-wire B is passed through the spiral-A from end to end thereof and is then, at equal distances from the ends of said wire B, bent in opposite directions back of the spiral A in such a manner as 'to hold the adjacent coils of the wire A in contact with each other at the back of the spiral A and the extreme ends of the wire B are bent into attaching eyes b through which screws may be passed to support the hanger and secure it to a wall of a stable or harness room. In' these figures (1 and 2) the ends of the spiral wire are secured to the wire B by said eyes a surrounding said wire B. V

In Figs. 3 and 4, substantially the same construction is shown as in Figs. 1 and 2, except that the loops or eyes a at the ends of the spiral A are within the loop of the supporting wire B and that the ends of said supporting Wire are first bent to bring them at right angles t0 the part of said wire B which is within said spiral and are then curved to meet on the open side of said spiral, the extreme ends of said wire 13 being bent into attaching-eyes b concentric with each other, by means of which eyes the hanger may be supported in a horizontal or vertical position, preferably the latter.

In each of the forms of the hanger abovedescribed, a whip is suspended by placing the end portion of the lash,below the knot, in the space or notch between any twoadjacent coils of the spiral and allowing said knot to rest upon such adjacent coils at the narrow part of such intermediate space or notch.

. I claim as my invention 1. In a whip-hanger the combination of a spiral, having a series of coils, and a clasp connected to and arranged to hold said coils, atone side of said spiral, and the adjacent coils of said spiral in immediate rigid contact with each other, said coils at the other side of said spiral being separated by intervals, as

- and for the purpose specified.

2. In the whip-hanger herein described, the combination of a spiral, having a series of coils, and a wire, passed through said spiral from end to end thereof and looped around the coils of said spiral and holding the adjacent coils of said spiral in contact with each other atone side of said spiral, said coils at the other side of said spiral being separated by intervals, said looped wire having attaching-eyes formed in the ends thereof, as and for the purpose specified.
