Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 16, 1906.

1'0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, FRANK C. TABLER, a citizen of the United States, residing at St. Louis, Missouri, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Cable-Hangers, of which the folowing is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in cable-hangers and it consists of the novel features herein shown, described, and claimed.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective of a cable-hanger embodying the principles of my invention. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the cable-hanger on a line crosswise of the cable. Fig. 3 is a sectional detail on the line 3 3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a sectional detail on to press the cable 11 down upon the teeth 10,

and the spring-clamp 13, punched from the book 9.

The bearing 7 presents a rounded surface to slide easily upon the supporting-cable 8. The teeth 10-extend crosswise of the cable 11 and are adapted to cut into the covering of the cable and stick. The clamps 12 and 13 oppose each other and spring toward each other, so that when the cable is pressed downwardly between the clamps it will be held against the teeth 10 and when the cable 11 is drawn along the hangers will stick to the cable and be carried along.

I claim- 1. In a cable-hanger: a central body; asliding hook extending from the central body; a

restricted bearing extending downwardly from the hook to engage the supporting-ca ble; .a gripping-hook extending downwardly from the'opposite end of the central body; a spring-clamp extending from the central body to press the cable downwardly into the gripping hook, and teeth extending upwardly from the gripping-hook to engage the cable.

2. In a cable-hanger: acentral body; asliding hook extending from the central body; a gripping-hook extending downwardly from the opposite end of the central body; a spring clamp extending from the central body to press the cable downwardly into the gripping-hook and a second spring-clamp extending from the gripping-hook in opposition to the first spring-cla1np.

3. Ina cable-hanger: a centralbody; a sliding hook extending from the central body; a gripping hook extending end of the central body; teeth carried by the gripping-hook and a spring-clamp in position to press the cable into the gripping-hook against the teeth.
