present showing, there are two suspending ropes
I2 at each side of the swing II, the upper ends
30 of said ropes being connected with curved bars
I3_ which are suspended by the clamps ill, a Y
shaped swing rope I4 being connected with said
bars to aid the child in swinging.
Each clamp I0 includes two clamp members
35 I5. Each of these clamp members is of U-shape
to provide it with two vertical arms I6 and with
a cross bar I 1 connecting the lower ends of said
arms. The upper ends of these arms are pro
vided with hooks I8, and an eye I9 is formed be
m tween the ends of each arm. Preferably the
parts I6, I'I, I8 and I9 are all bent from a sin
gle length of rod or sufficiently stiil’ wire. The
suspension means which connects the clamp
members I5 with each other and connects them
L5 with the bars I3, includes two rope loops 20
which extend in substantially opposite direc
tions, one of said loops being passed through the
eyes I9 of one of the clamp members I5 and the
other of‘ said loops being passed through the
0 corresponding eyes of the other of said clamp
members. Thus, when a downward pull is ex
erted on the loops 2!), they pull inwardly upon
the two clamp members I5, holding them tightly
engaged with the support. The loops then lie

clamp members I5 be at the same elevation or
at different elevations, making it practicable to
engage the clamp with the upper end of a door
frame even if the trim at one side of said frame
be much higher than that at the other side, as
very often occurs when one room is trimmed in
a different manner from the adjoining room.
From. the foregoing taken in connection with
the accompanying drawing, it will be seen that
novel and advantageous provision has been made
for carrying out the objects of the invention,
and while preferred details have been disclosed,
the present disclosure is to be considered illus
trative rather than limiting.
I claim:
1. In a suspension or similar clamp, two sup
port-engaging clamp members each of U-shape
to provide it with two arms and with a cross bar
connecting said arms, said arms having sup
porting hooks at their upper ends and'eyes be
tween their ends, and suspension means having
portions passed slidably through said eyes for
drawing said clamping members into clamping
engagement with the support.
2. In a suspension or similar clamp, two sup
port-engaging clamp members each of U-shape
to provide it with two arms and with a cross
bar connecting said arms, said arms having sup
porting hooks at their upper ends and eyes
between their ends, and suspension means hav
ing two substantially oppositely extending loops,

one of said loops being passed through the eyes
of one of said clamping members, the other of
said loops being passed through the eyes of the
other of said clamping members.
'
3. A structure as speci?ed in claim 2; said
loops being disposed at the inner sides of said
arm-connecting cross bars to be clamped by the
latter against the support.
4.‘In a suspension or similar clamp, two sup
port-engaging clamp ‘members each of U-shape
to provide it with two arms and with a cross bar
connecting said arms, said arms having sup
porting hooks at their upper ends and eyes be
tween their ends, a ring below and between said
clamping members, and two loops each secured
at one end to said ring and having its other
end passed slidably through said ring to suspend
the desired load, one of said loops being passed
slidably through the eyes of one of said clamp
members, the other of said loops being passed’
slidably through’ the eyes of the other of said
clamp members, whereby the loops will pull the
two clampvmembers into clamping engagement
with the support and,’ said arm-connecting cross
bars will clamp said'loops against the support.
5. In a suspension or similar clamp, two sup
port-engaging clamp members each of U-shape 10
to provide it with two arms and with a cross bar
connecting said arms, said arms having support;
ing hooks at their upper ends and eyes be
tween their ends, and suspension means having’
portions engaged with said eyes.
