SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 708,537, dated September 9, 1902. Application lecl April 17, 1902. Serial No. 1031427' (N0 mOClGL) T0 all whom 1115 may concern:
Be it known that I,WILLIAM G. ESOH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Manitowoc, in the county of Manitowoc and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Nozzle-Grips; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
Theinvention relates to a nozzle-grip-that is, to a grip or handle adapted to be connected to the nozzle of the hose and designed, primarily, to prevent the hand from becoming cold and wet from the condensation of the atmosphere and from water running down along the sides of the nozzle and hose, which is so frequently the case when the nozzle- Washer becomes worn.
The object of the invention is to provide a device of this character which shall be simple of construction, durable in use, comparatively inexpensive of production, and which may be readily connected to the hose now in general use by means of a coupling connected to the grip or handle.
With this and other objects in view the invention consists of certain novel features of construction, combination, and arrangement of parts, which will be hereinafter more fully described, and particularly pointed out in the appended claim.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a side elevation of a nozzle, the end of the hose, and my handle, the parts being shown secured in operative position. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional View. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective of the parts separated and arranged in their order of connection, and Fig. 4 is a longitudinal sectional view of a modified form of grip or handle.
Referring to the drawings, 1 denotes the vend of the hose; 2, the nozzle, provided at its inner end with internal threads 3.
4 denotes the usual nipple, which is inserted into the end of the hose and is bound se curely therein by wires 5 or any other suitable fastening devices and is provided with an annular collar 6, against which the end'of the hose abuts, and with an exteriorly-screwthreaded neck 7.
8 denotes the grip or handle, provided at its forward end with a shieldingshoulder 9, which tends to deflect the water which might run down from the nozzle and prevent it from running'upon the hand. This handle or grip may be provided with a coating 9', of cork or any other suitable material, or, if desired, it may be constructed, as shown, of a composition of matter of which cork may be the basic element, or of hard rubber, and is provided at its ends with metal felis 10, which will serve to prevent the chipping of the ends of the grip. rIhe forward end of the handle or grip is provided with internal screw-threads 11 for a purpose hereinafter to appear.
l2 denotes a coupling Which consists of a short section of pipe having external screwthreads 13, which engage the internal threads 3 of the nozzle, and is provided at its inner end with external screw-threads 14, which en gage the internal screw-threads 1l of the handle or grip, and With internal screw-threads 15, which engage the screw-threads 7 of the nipple 4.
In assembling the parts the handle or grip is slipped over the nipple 4 of the hose to lleave exposed the threads 7 of said nipple,
whereby the coupling 12 may be screwed upon said nipple. The nozzle 2 is now screwed upon the threads 13 of the coupling, and after the parts have been thus tightly screwed the handle 8 is screwed upon the external threads 14 of the coupling.
From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, the construction, mode of operation, and advantages of the invention will bereadily understood without requiring a more extended explanation.
Various changes in the proportion and details of construction may be made within the scope of the invention Without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages thereof.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Leiters Patent, is-
The combination with a hose provided with an externally-screw-threaded nipple, of an internally-screw-threaded nozzle, a coupling provided at each end with exterior screwthreads, one of which affords connection to the nozzle, and provided at its inner end with IOO 2 roses? screw-threads which engage the threads of my hand in presence of two subscribing Witthe nipple, and ahandle or grip placed around nesses. the end of the hose and having internal screw-threads to engage the external sorew- WM' G' ESCH' 5 threads at the inner end of Ithe coupling, sub- Witnesses:
stantially as set forth. CHAS. H. HOEFFNER,
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set ARTHUR G. ENGELBRECHT.
