WIRE VSTBETCHER. AND‘ SPLICERQ
William J. Alexander, Cora, Wyo.
Application June 7, 1937, Serial No. 146,930
4 Claims.
(Cl. 140-—123.5)
This invention relates to wire stretchers and
splicers, and has for an object to provide a wire
stretcher and splicer capable of use with all
kinds of wire including barbed wire, in stretch
5 ing and holding the wire taut and splicing the
adjacent ends in an easy and expeditious man
ner, and with very little effort.
A further object of this invention is to pro
vide a wire stretcher and splicer that is light
10 in weight, yet is strong and sturdy, is simple in
construction, inexpensive to manufacture, and
extremely efficient in use and service.
Still a further object of this invention is to
tends and which may be temporarily held after
it has been stretched and bent, in order to form
the second loop.
After the loop 20 has been put in position, the
second wire 23 is threaded through the loop 20 5
and beneath a wire guide 24 having a V-shaped
rear end receiving the wire 23 which is then ex
tended through a diametrical opening 25 in a
shaft 26 journalled between the side walls II
and I2, the shaft 26 having a ratchet wheel 27 10
and a crank handle 28 secured to one side there
of. A pawl 29 is pivoted to the wall l2 as at 3!,
to engage the teeth of the ratchet wheel 21 and
provide a wire stretcher which is operated by
is held accordingly by a spring 30 to prevent
‘15 both hands, one hand holding the body of the
stretcher, by means of a handle and the other
hand operating a crank to tighten the wire so
there is no danger of the wire stripping off the
leased position to permit the crank handle 28
stretcher and injuring either hand, particularly
20 in the case of barbed wire.
With the foregoing and other objects in view,
this invention comprises the combination, con
struction and arrangement of parts set forth,
disclosed, and claimed in the following speci
25 ?cation, taken in connection with the accom
panying drawing, wherein like reference numer
als denote corresponding parts.
In this drawing:
Figure 1 is a side elevation of the wire
30 stretcher and splicer in operative position.
Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a partly sectional view of the stretcher
and splicer after the stretching operation has
been completed and the splice is in the process of
35 completion, and
Fig. 4 is a view showing the completed splice.
The wire stretcher and splicer I0 of this in
vention includes a pair of side walls H and I2
shaped substantially as shown and bent toward
40 ‘each other as at I3 Where they are joined to one
end of the opposite side walls of an inverted
channel member 14 having a hook I5 secured
‘adjacent to its opposite end and opening laterally
as at I6.
45
The outer end of the parallel side walls H
and I2 are joined together by a plate ll from
which extends a pair of prongs l8 bent upwardly
to form a loop receiving hook I9. A loop 20
formed on one of the ends of the wire 2| is to
50 be placed over the hook l9 and then the wire is
extended rearwardly therefrom, for disposal be
tween the side walls II and I2 and through the
inverted channel M, to be held removably in po
sition by the hook I5. The prongs 18 provide a
55 recess 22, through which the other wire 23 ex
reverse rotation of the shaft 26.
15
A pawl releasing member 32 may be secured
in the side wall I2 for holding the pawl 29 in re
to be rotated in a reverse direction to release the
wire from the shaft 26. A handle 33 is secured 20
to the side wall II so that the wire stretcher
and splicer Ill may be conveniently held in the
left hand while the right hand rotates the crank
handle 28 to tighten the wire 23,
When the wires 2! and 23 have been drawn 25
suf?ciently taut, the stretcher and splicer I0 is
raised to a 90° angle with respect to the wires,
as shown in Figure 3. As this happens, the wire
21 is released from the hook 15 through the open
ing “5. The stretcher and splicer Ill is then 30
turned to a position parallel to the wire 23,
thereby releasing the loop 20 from the hook Hi.
The stretcher and splicer I0 is then rotated at a 90° angle about the wire 23 so as to coil the
same about itself to complete the loop 34 and
the splice as shown in Fig. 4. The ratchet wheel
2'! meantime has been released to permit the
shaft to reverse and thereby release the end of
the wire 23 from the shaft.
The novel features and the operation of this
device will be apparent from the foregoing de
scription. While the device has been shown and
the structure described in detail, it is obvious
that this invention is not to be considered lim
ited to the exact form disclosed, and that
changes may be made therein within the scope
of What is claimed without departing from the
spirit of the invention.
Having thus set forth and disclosed the nature
of this invention, what is claimed is:
