SPECIFICATION forming part bf Letters Patent No. 779,279, dated January 3, 1905. nmnn filed January 23,1904. se'nu No. 190,387.
To (1. whom it 71211.1 concern:
Be it known that I, OnAnLns LOUIS HAST- ixcs, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Fond du Lac, in the county of Fond du Lac and State of Vliseonsin, have invented a new and Improved Buckle, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
My invention relates to buckles for use in attaching straps or other flat connecting devices of any kind to each other.
The objects of my invention are to secure greater holding force in articles of this character than has been attained in previous constructions and at the same time secure simplicity and cheapness of construction in the article itself.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is a side view of a preferred form Fig. 2 is a sectional View on the line 2 2 of Fig. 1, and Fig. 3 is a section view on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1.
In the drawings, (1. represents the body of the buckle-6 a tongue protruding therefrom forming a hook, and c a projection upon said hook to prevent a strap attached to said hook from being displaced. Upon the body of the buckle are formed a plurality of cross-bars a, c, and The cross-bar (Z is of preferably the same thickness as the body of the buckle and does not extend beyond the exterior surfaces thereof. The cross-bar r is preferably thinner than the body of the buckle and located at one side, but not extending beyond the exterior surface thereof. The cross-bar extends transversclyto the largest surfaces of the buckle and has a projectionf the flat surface of which extends beyond the outside surface of the buckle and preferably upon the side upon which is situated the cross-bar 1 Th crossbar 1 forms the rear end of the buckle, and the sides of the buckle are beveled, as shown at It. Straps or otherfastening devices are secured to the buckle, as shown in dotted lines in Figs. 1 and 2, which will need no further explanation.
From this construction it will be clear that my improved buckle is more efficient. cheaper, and more simple than the buckles of this general character heretofore known. The projection f causes a more pronouneed'pressure upon'the strap placed upon it than is the case when this bar is entirely within the surface of the buckle, and thereby prevents slipping of the straps.
Having thus described my invention, I claim I as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. A buckle having a flat body provided with tie a hook and three cross-bars, the cross-bar nearest the hook being of the same thickness as, and parallel with, the body portion, the 'second cross-bar projecting beyond one flat surface of said body portion, and the third crossbar being parallel to the first and thinner than the body portion, the surfaces of the first and third cross-bars on one sidebeing in the same .plane, and those of the first and second on the other side being in the same plane.
2. A buckle provided with a hook, and three cross-bars, the cross-bar nearest the hook being contained entirely within the outside sun faces of the body portion of the'buckle, the second cross bar having a flat surface projecting beyond the surface of the buckle on one side, and the third eross-barbeing'thinner than the body portion and located on the side thereof from which projects said second' cross-bar.
In testlmony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two sub:.
