(01. 292-206) My invention relates to improvements in a clamping device for attaching movable partitions a bolt head II at its inner end. The said screw bolt 8_ is ?tted with a locknut I5 which may be to the sides of railway stock cars, thus doing tightened up against the ?ange 3 so that the away with the necessity of fastening such parti clamp will not tend to become loose from vibra tions with nails, bolts, or other attaching means, tion. The adjustment bar ‘I is bolted to the 5 which may have a tendency to damage such cars partition I2 by two nuts I3, and is held away from and necessitate frequent repairs. , said partition I2 by spacing nuts I4, thus The object of my invention is, ?rst, a clamping the allowing clamping member I to slide on said device, composed of two members, a clamping vertical adjustment bar 1. Four of such clamping member, and a vertical adjustment member, ca pable of being attached to a partition with bolts members I and vertical adjustment bars ‘I are 10 shown attached to a partition I2 in position in and to the slats in the sides of a stock car by a a railway stock car in Figure 4. clamp; and second, a vertical adjustment and a In operation, four adjustment bars ‘I with horizontal adjustment for different heights of clamping members I are attached at suitable slats in the sides of the car, and different widths heights on the partition I2 placed in position in 16 of cars, in such a manner that the only tool a railway stock car, and clamping members I are needed to place a partition in a stock car is an adjusted for height on the vertical adjustment ordinary wrench, when said partition is equipped bar ‘I, and inserted in the spaces between the slats with my device. 5 at the sides of the said railway stock car, being I attain these objects by the mechanism illus down over the said slats 6. The screw 20 trated in the accompanying drawing, in which: ?tted bolt 8 is then tightened with a wrench so that Figure 1 shows a view of the improved clamp the clamping face 9 of the screw-bolt 8 is ?rmly and vertical adjustment bar. brought into contact with the inside faces of the Figure 2 is a detail view of the vertical adjust slats 6, the outside faces of the slats 6 being ment bar on which the clamp member moves. forced against the inside faces of the ?anges 4, 25 Figure 3 is a plan view of the clamp member and by this means the partition is held in posi showing position of the oval shaped horizontal tion. adjustment hole through which the vertical ad I am aware that prior to my invention various justment bar is ?tted; and showing by dotted means have been employed to retain partitions in lines the position of the various components of position in railway stock cars, I therefore do not 30 the clamp. ' claim such a device broadly; but what I do claim Figure 4 is a view of four such ‘clamping mem as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters bers with vertical adjustment bars in position on Patent is:? a partition in place in a railway stock car. Similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the several views. I represents the clamping member, being com posed of a rigid, metal, F shaped structure, hav ing an elliptical opening for the purpose of hor izontal adjustment 2, at one end thereof, and two ?anges, 3 and 4, at the other end, shaped to ?t through the spaces 5 between the slats 6 forming the sides of a railway stock car, and capable of vertical adjustment with relation to the partition 45 by means of the clamping member I sliding down along the vertical adjustment bar ‘I through the elliptical opening 2 at the inner end of the clamp ing member I. The flange 3 of the said clamping member I is ?tted with a screw-bolt 8, threaded 50 through the opening ID in the said flange 3, and having at one end thereof a clamping face 9, and In a securing device for retaining a‘ partition in position between the Walls of a railway stock car wherein the partition has a passage therein, a as clamp comprising an elongated anchoring bracket secured to thee partition frame, a rigid, F-shaped member slidably carried by said'bracket, the leg of the member having a laterally adjustable con nection therewith, the head of the member being 40 adapted to be passed through the partition pas- ‘ sage forengaging the car wall in a direction out ward from said bracket, and adjustable, clamping means carried’by the intermediate portion of the 45 member and directed toward the head whereby the member may clamp the car wall between the head and adjustable clamping means to anchor the partition to the car wall.
