CHAIN CRADLE
Thomas Marriott, Fayette City, Pa., assignor to
The American Steel and Wire Company of
New Jersey, a corporation of New Jersey
Application August 22, 1936, Serial No. 97,452
4 Claims.
(Cl. 24S-_127)
This invention relates to chain cradles, and,
more particularly to cradles, or supports, for large
hoisting chains.
In many industries; such as, the steel industry,
large chains are frequently employed in the han
dling of heavy loads; as, for instance, where large
chains are used as slings adapted to suspend loads
from crane hooks, and the like. Due to the
ponderous size of each link in such chains, con
10 siderable difñculty is experienced in arranging
for their engagement by a crane hook, which
arrangement has heretofore been accomplished
manually.
It is an object of the present invention to pro
15 vide a cradle into which chains may be placed,
so that the terminal links thereof are properly
positioned for ready engagement by a crane hook,
or other hoisting device.
’
Another object is to provide a cradle into which
20 cranes may deposit the terminal links of large
chains, and be quickly disengaged therefrom.
Other objects and advantages will be apparent
after referring to the drawing, in which:
Figure 1 is a plan of a preferred form of the
25
invention;
Figure 2 is a rear elevation of the device of
Figure 1;
Figure 3 is a side elevation;
Figure 4 is a front elevation; and
Figure 5 is a sectional view taken along line
30
V-V of Figure 3.
of a terminal link L, when the latter is resting in
the socket, as is illustrated in dotted lines in Fig
ure 3, may be accommodated. A cut-away por
tion 9 may be provided also for the accommoda
tion of the links that are disposed crosswise to
that seated in the socket.
Modifications of the size and shape of the vari
ous parts, illustrated herein, may be made in
order to accommodate various kinds and sizes
of chains or slings.

While I have shown and described one specific
embodiment of the invention, it will be under
stood that I' do not Wish to be limited exactly
thereto, since various modifications may be made
without departing from the scope of the inven 15
tion as defined by the following claims.
I claim:
1. A chain-link holder, of integral construction
comprising a base portion, an upright body se
cured to said base portion, an inclined rest for 20
receiving the terminal link of a chain supported
by said body adjacent the upper extremities
thereof, a shelf extending outwardly from the
lower extremities of said rest for giving end bear
ing to such link, wall portions connecting said 25
rest and said shelf, said wall portions being pro
vided With inwardly disposed flanges adjacent the
edges thereof remote from said rest for closely
embracing such link.
2. A device of the class described, comprising a 30
base portion, an upright body secured to said base
Referring more particularly to the drawing,
portion, an inclined rest supported by said body
in which like reference characters refer to like
parts throughout; the cradle of the present in
35 vention is comprised of a base l, of a size suflî
adjacent the upper extremities thereof, a shelf
cient to give adequate lateral support thereto,
extending outwardly from the lower extremities
of said rest, Wall portions connecting said rest
and said shelf, said wall portions being provided
which base is provided with apertures 2 for re
with inwardly disposed flanges adjacent the edges
ceiving anchor bolts. Extending upwardly from
thereof remote from said rest, said shelf having a
recess intermediate said flanges.
3. A device of the class described, comprising
a base portion, an upright body secured to said
base portion, an inclined rest supported by said
body adjacent the upper extremities thereof, a
shelf extending outwardly from the lower ex
the base l is the main body portion 3 of the
40 cradle, which is comprised principally of a plu~
rality of reenforcing webs sloped to provide ex
tensive footing upon the base.
`
Atop the main body portion 3 is a sloping link
rest 4, which is provided with an opening 5 inter
45 mediate its sides to provide clearance for crane
hooks, or the like. The lower extremity of the
‘inclined link-rest 4, is provided with portions 6,
defining a seat or socket, into which the links
are adapted to be placed. The side portions 4a,
50 of the inclined link-rest are turned inwardly ad
jacent the front of the cradle to provide socket
enclosing flanges 1 extending from the portions
6 thereof upwardly to the plane of the top of
the inclined link-rest 4. The bottom portions 6
55 of the socket are so spaced that appended links
tremities of said rest, wall portions connecting
said rest and said shelf, said wall portions being
provided with inwardly disposed flanges adjacent
the edges thereof remote from said rest, said shelf
having a recess intermediate said flanges, said
rest being provided with a cut-away portion at
its upper edge between said wall portions, said
50
cut-away portion terminating intermediate said
upper edge and said shelf.
4. A chain-link holder comprising a base por.. 55

tion, a standard mounted thereon, a chain-link
socket carried by said standard, the socket hav
ing openings adjacent itsbottom to accommo
date links depending from a terminal link `seated
in the socket, said socket further having open
cut-away portions adapted to register at least
partially with the eye of a terminal link reposing
therein, whereby the link may be readily engaged,
lifted, replaced and disengaged Without disturb
ing the holder, and Without substantial manipu
lation of the link.
