SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 518,317, dated April 17, 1894.
Application filed July 10, 1893- Serial No. 480.077- (No model.)
1'0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY C. HART, of Detroit, in the county of Wayne and State of Michigan, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Billiard-Cue Locks, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to billiard-cue locks and consists in theimprovements hereinafter specified and pointed out in the claim.
Referring to the accompanying drawings: Figure l, is a plan View showing a set of cue locks embodying my invention; and Fig. 2, is an elevation of the same.
A, A, B, are standards adapted to be secured to, and extend horizontally from the woodwork of the wall of the room. For convenience in securing said standards they are provided with flanges a, at one end which flanges are perforated to permit the passage of the screws for securing said standards in place. base of each standard as shown in the drawings, which spur may be forced into the wall to help hold said standards in place.
D, D, are hasps each of which is hinged to the outer end of one of the standards A, A, B.
E, E, are locks secured to the inner sides of the hasps D, D.
F, F, are the bolts of the locks E, E, which bolts may be thrown by keys passing through the key-holes H, H. Upon .the outer end of the standard B, is formed a lug G, with which the lock F, of the look upon the hasp hinged A spur b, maybe formed upon the to the adjacent standard may engage to hold said clasp closed. Each standard with its attached hasp is made separate, and therefore to form a set of any number, say thirty or forty cue-locks it is only necessary to secure a corresponding number of standards (one more than the number of locks required) in line at the proper distance apart. I
Each of the standards A, A, B, is of the same construction as the others as above described, except that in order to give a more finished appearance to the set it is better to have two of said standards specially adapted to form the ends as A, A. These may be made without the lug G, and one of them should be without the hasp and hinge. The
cues rest at their ends upon supports and are rate standards,a hasp hinged to each of said standards, each hasp being adapted to lock with the succeeding standard and each standard being adapted to lock with the preceding hasp, substantially as shown and described.
