Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented July 17, 1906.
Application filed September 2, 1905. Serial No. 276,877.
To (I/ZZ whmn it may concern:
Be it known that I, HARRY WILLIAM BOI-IAGHE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cincinnati, in the county of Hamilton and State of Ohio, have invented a new and Im roved Attachment for Indian Clubs, of whic the following is a s ecification.
This invention relates to Indian clubs, and more particularly to an attachment whereby four Indian clubs, or two pairs, can be employed instead of two clubs, or a single pair, the object being to provide an exercising apparatus which will provide more exercise in manipulation than the ordinary Indian club now in use; and another object is to provide an attachment for connecting a pair of Indian clubs in such a manner that all of the movements capable with an ordinary club can be erformed with a pair of clubs connected by means of my improved attachment.
With these objects in view and certain others, as will appear hereinafter as the invention becomes better understood, it consists in the novel features of construction, combination, and arrangement, all of which will be fully described, and pointed out in the claims.
In the drawings forming a part of this specification, Figure 1 is a view showing a pair of clubs connected by means of my attachment. Fig. 2 is a sectional elevation of the same. Fig. 3 is a sectional plan on the line 3 3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a detail view of the eyebolt.
In carrying out my invention I employ a handle A, which has a bore extending entirely through the same and through which passes a rod B, having a head 13 at one end and threaded at the opposite end to receive the nut B The rod supports the eyebolts O, which carry the metal yokes E, having the collars F connected thereto, the rod B passing through the eyes C of the bolt C, said bolts being arranged at each end of the handle, and washers D are arranged between the ends of the handle and the head and nut in order to permit the bolts to rotate freely upon the rod. The lower ends of the rods pass through the central apertured portion of the yokes E and are secured by the bolts O, the bolts being rovided with shoulders O, which prevent the yokes riding upon the bolts, and nuts O hold the said yokes in position, but permit them to turn upon the bolts, f as most clearly shown in Fig. 1. The collars F are pivotally secured to the lower ends of the yokes E, the ends of the collars bein turned outwardly, as shown at F, and a b0 t G passes through said collars, and a nut G serves to bind the collars around the packing H, which surrounds the handles of the clubs I. By means of the collars F being adjustable various sizes. of clubs can be accommodated.
After the parts are assembled, as shown in Fig. 1, the handle A is grasped and all of the circling movements which can. be made with an ordlnary Indian club can be accomplished with a pair of clubs connected by means of my attachment, and for exhibition purposes it will be a decided advantage, as it will greatly enhance the exhibition to use four clubs instead of two.
All of the parts being of simple and durable construction, there is no danger of the clubs becoming detached.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is-- 1. A device of the kind described comprisin a handle having a rod rotatable therein, bo ts hung upon said rod and havin yokes connected to their lower ends, sai yokes carrying means for securing the handle of an Indian club, as set forth.
2. A device-of the kind described comprising a handle, a rod arranged therein, bolts arranged upon opposite ends of the rod, yokes pivotally mounted u on the ends of bolts and carrying collars oosely mounted upon said yoke, ada ted to be fastened around the handles of c ubs, as set forth.
3. A device of the kind described comprising a handle, a rod extending therethrough, the eyebolts arranged u .on the rod, the yokes carried by the eyebo lts, adjustable collars carried by the yokes and the packingarranged within the collars, as set forth.
4. A device of the kind described comprising a handle having a rod extending therethrough, rotatable and swiveled devices carried by the rod at each end thereof and provided with means for attachment to an Indian club, as set forth.
