Application Med January 15, 1927. Serial No. 1e1,a7a.
" that the device can be clamped to the snout without injury to the animal.
Another object of the invention is the provisionof aholder of the above character which includes an adjustable snout engaging loop formed by a cable guided through the snout bar and having means to adjustably attach one endof the cable to the holder. a
The nature and advantages of the invention will be better understood when the following detailed description is read in connection with the accompanying drawings, the invention residing in the construction, combination and arrangement of parts as claimed.
In the drawings forming part of this application, like numerals of reference indicate similar parts in the several views, and wherein:
Figure 1 is a view showing how the device is used.
Figure 2 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical sectional view through the device.
Figure 3 is a fragmentary view in elevation showing how the flexible element is. associated with the hand grip.
Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on line H of Figure 3.
Figure 5 is a sectional view taken on line 55 of Figure 3.
Figure 6 is a sectional view taken on line 66 of Figure 2.
The body of the device includes a tubular member 10 which has associated with the lower end thereof, a tubular extension 11 of greater diameter than the diameter of the body member 10. This extension is connected with the lower end of said body by means of a suitable coupling 12, the coupling having a slot 13 at one side and an eye 14 extending from its opposite side. One end of a flexible element 15 extends through the eye 14 and carries a hook 15' for removable engagement within any one of a number of spaced openings 16 provided in the tubular member to adjustably ancho this end of the flexible element to the tubular member when said element is drawn taut about the snout of an animal. The element is formed to provide a noose 17 to surround the snout of the animal, the other end of the flexible GlQIIXOHiLbBlI Ig passed through the slot 13 and thence upwardly through the hollow body portion 10. As shown in Figure l, the
upper end of this flexible element 15 received between the adjacent extremities 18 of a hand grip 19, and clamped between said extremities when the latter are drawn to gether by means of a bolt and nut. Theupper end of this flexible element is folded upon itself and positioned uponopposite sides of abolt 20 as clearly shown in Figure 4. ible element forms a loop 21 which receives a small ring 22 which is wholly disposed within the hand grip 19. If desired, the.
grip may be bound with a rope or cord 19 and the ring confined within the binding.
The noose 17 is adapted to be used in conjunction with a snout bar clearly shown in Figures 1 and 2, wherein it will be noted that the intermediate portion of the bar is arched or curved as at 23 to accommodate itself to the nose of the animal across which it is adapted to be arranged, while the extremities of said bar are slotted as at 24 to receive the adjacent portions of the noose. This bar 23 is supported by bracket arms 25 which project from and are formed in tegral with the extension 11 at diametrically opposite points. These arms project from the lower edge of said extension and extend outwardly as clearly shown in Figure 2.
The folding of the upper end of the fiex- The bar 23 is provided with a headed stud bolt 26 is a coiled spring 28, the spring being interposed between the bracket arm and the nut 27, and tends to hold the bar normally in the position shown in Figure 2. This arrangement, however, afiords the bar a slight yielding or rocking movement when the flexible element is pulled upon clamping the device about the snout of the animal, so that the bar under such circumstances can conveniently accommodate itself to the nose of the animal without injurin the latter.
In practice, the noose is p aced around the snoutof the animal with the bar 23 arranged across the nose as shown in Figure 2, The
device is held in one hand and the flexible element pulled upon through the instrul'uentality of the hand grip 19. In this manner the device can be quickly and conveniently clamped about the shoot of the animal for the purpose intended, the ring 22 prevei'ne ing the free end or the cable from being pulled or separated from the hand grip 15) under any circumstances.
While it is believed that from the fort going description, the nature and advantages of the invention will be readily apparent, I desire to have it understood that I do not limit myself to What is herein shown and described, and that such changes may resorted to when desired as fall within the scope of what is claimed.
Having thus described the invention, I claim:
1. A hog holder con'iprising a tubular body portion having spaced openings therein, an extension depending from the lower end thereof, a snout bar arranged transversely of said extension and yieldably mounted thereon, a flexible element slid-able through the tubular body portion and adapted to have one end secured to said body portion to form 1,es1,0ea
a noose, said bar having slots adjacent the ends thereof to receive the adjacent portions of the noose, whereby the latter is used in conjunction with said bar to clamp the device about the snout of the animal, a hand grip attached to the other end of said element whereby the latter may be drawn through the body portion, and a hook secured to the first mentioned end of the flexible element to adjustably connect this end of said element to the body.
2. A hog holder comprising a hollow tubular body portion, bracket arms projecting outwardly from the lower end thereof, a snout bar arranged transversely of said holder and yieldably mounted on said bracket arms, a flexible element threaded through the tubular body portion and projecting outwardly therefrom at a point above said bracket arms, said snout bar being slotted at its ends to receive i HENRY BLASER.
