United States Patent OfiFice Des. 209,168 Patented Nov. 7, 1967 SNAP COUPLING Robert G. Hunt 5821 Holt Ave., Los Angeles, Calif. 90058 Filed May 2, 1966, Ser. No. 2,099

Term of patent 14 years (Cl. D54-1) FIG. 1 is a top plan view of an assembled snap coupling showing my new design;

FIG. 2 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a side elevational view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a side elevational view of the male member of the coupling, but rotated 90 with respect to FIG. 2;

FIG. 5 is a view similar to FIG. 4, but showing the female member;

FIG. 6 is an isometric exploded view of the snap coupling disassembled;

FIG. 7 is an elevational view of one end thereof, the opposite end being a mirror image thereof;

FIG. 8 is an elevational view of the inner end of the male member of the coupling; and

FIG. 9 is an elevational view of the inner end of the female member of the coupling.

In view of the prior art, the characteristic feature of my design resides in the appearance resultant from the interfitting relationship of the two parts of the coupling, particularly the bevelled edges thereof and the bevelled peripheral groove separating the small and large parts thereof, as best seen in FIGS. 1 and 2.

I claim:

The ornamental design for a snap coupling, substantially as shown and described.
