2. in a package tie, the combination of a strap section adapted to extend around one end of a package, a buckle applied to one end of the strap section, a ring applied to the opposite end of the strap S6CLlO11, a transverse strap adapted to extend around the sides of the package and having an intermediate porlion thereof permanently connected to the buckle end of the strap While the two ends thereof pass loosely through the ring, and a second end strap secured to the extremities of the transverse strap and adapted to be drawn around the end of the package and engaged by the buckle.
In testimony whereof I my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
