When the clamping members or jaws are hinged together lever B is swung upwardly the legs l6 engage the and held in clamping position by a lever. U-shaped portion 6 thereby bringing the clamp 5 One of the objects of this invention is to pro ing members I into clamping position. Lever vide a device of this character with a lever which 8 comes to rest when the angles 20 engage in the is curved and twisted about itself in a manner to notches IS in the U-shaped portion 6. The hook form a hook of novel construction for suspension In of the lever 8 is used for hanging the device on a rod or other support. from a suitable support. w Other objects of the invention will be apparent I claim: 10 from a study of the following description and 1.

The clamping mem~ bers l are connected by a hinge constructed of small rods, the axis of the hinge being shown at 3. There are two such rods 4 and 5 having their ends received in openings formed in the clamping members i. The rod 5’ is bent around the rod 4 so as to form a bearing for the rod terminating in eyes journalled on one of said U-shaped portions, said legs being slidably en gage-able with the other of said U-shaped por- 25 ' position. their ends, the U-shaped portion 1 providing an of hingedly connected rods including substan The lever 8 is formed of a rod bent intermediate its ends to form the curved portions I! and I2, constituting a hook l0. Extending from the curved-elements H and I2 are shank portions ‘in l3 and M. The shank I3 is formed into a coil l5 around the shank ill in such a manner as to securely hold the shank portions together.
