'1 claim.
In the art of making concrete ‘structures with
the use of metal forms it is at the present time the
general practice to secure the metal forms‘ to
gether on opposite sides of the space in which the
’5 concrete is 'to be formed, ‘an'd‘then to support
these metal plates by means of structural beams
bolted or nailed together and supported in up
right positions by suitable braces, and the opera
tion of erecting these structural beams and con
10 necting them together requires a considerable
amount of labor, and if the structural beams are
made of wood the beams are damaged and
broken during repeated operations, thus causing
considerable loss of material.
The object of my invention is to provide a
clamp device of simple, durable and inexpensive
construction and so arranged that it may be
readily, quickly and easily hooked into the ?anged
perforated margins of adjoining mold forms, and
2 O then clamped to the horizontally arranged beams
to rigidly and securely hold said parts together,
and also the same clamps in slightly modi?ed
form may be used in a similar manner to clamp
the upright beams to the horizontal beams with
25 out the use of bolts or nails, and whereby the
structural beams may be readily, quickly and
easily removed without injury so that when
wooden structural beams are used they may ‘be
used inde?nitely without damage or deteriora

In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 shows
an outer face view of two adjoining metal plates

structural beam extended across them and my

for‘ instancqas' a'woo'den “2 'x' 4?’; This‘ body
portion’is' preferably ‘formed of'cast ‘malleable
iron and has at one end a pivot pin l I'fo'rmed‘
with a head I2 so that between the head and the
body 10 there is provided an annular groove. On
the opposite end of the body 10 there is a fulcrum
pin I 3 extended in the opposite direction from
the pin I I and having a head 14, thus forming 10
an annular groove between the head and the body
portion. This entire unit may be cast complete
in one piece and without machine work.
The lever comprises a handle portion 55 pref
erably made of cast malleable iron and having at 15
one end a substantially U-shaped slot Hi to re
ceive the fulcrum pin 13, and in practice these
parts are united by simply bending the project
ing end I‘! of the lever partly around the fulcrum
pin l3, as shown in Figure 4.
Formed on the lever between the handle and
the fulcrum pin is a pivot pin having a head l9,
thereby forming an annular groove between the
body of the lever and the head I9.
For connecting the lever and the body to the 25
articles to be clamped together I have provided
tworods 20, each having at one end a looped
portion 2| to enter the annular groove in one of
the pivot pins, each having ‘at its other end a
hook 22. Attention is directed to the fact that
the pivot pin ll extends outwardly from the body
I 0 and the fulcrum pin I3 extends in the opposite
direction and that the pivot pin I 8 extends up
wardly from the lever as shown in Figure 5. By
