THOMAS S. IIILES AND ELMER K. IIILES, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, AHSIHNORS TO TIIE (l. A. IIILES & COMPANY, OF SAME PLAUE.
DESIGN FQR AN ICE-HOOK.
To (115 whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, THOMAS S. HILES and ELMER K. IIILEs, citizens of the United States of America, residing at Chicago, in the county 5 of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a new and original Design for Ice-Hooks, of which the following is a specification.
Our invention relates to a certain new and original design for an ice-hook, whichis fully [0 described below, and the essential features thereof definitely pointed out.
The drawings present two figures, of which Figure 1 is a side elevation of our design, and Fig. 2 is an end elevation looking upward l 5 in Fig. 1.
Referring to the drawings, a hollow shank A is seen, substantially cylindrical at the bottom and tapering inward gradually at the top to form a reduced neck B, from which 20 two spurs C D project obliquely from the shank, the spurC extending upward and outward and the spur D extending outward and downward, so that the angle between the spur O and the shank is obtuse and that between the spur D and the shank is acute. The spur D does not take its downward oblique direction immediately at its juncture with the neck of the shank, but has a short intermediate portion E, extending upward slightly and forming with the spur a curved neck F.
The features which we believe to be essential to our invention are the hollow cylindrical shape of the shank A, the taperinginwurd of the same at the top, and the oblique position of the spurs I), one forming an obtuse and the other an acute angle with the shank and neck.
W'e claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent The design for an ice-hook; substantially as shown and described.
