7 Claims. (Cl. 105—354)
I5, and lying between and spaced from the lugs,
This invention relates-t0 hand straps oi the
kind commonly used in surface, subway, and and near one edge thereof, is a shield Hi, the
elevated passenger cars and is concerned more
particularly with a novel hand strap which oiiers
Ii numerous advantages, both in construction and
appearance, over the devices previously used for
the purpose.
The new hand strap includes a bracket which
is secured to a suitable part of the car structure,
10 and a hanger pivotally mounted on a pin on the
bracket and terminating in the usual loop handle.
The hanger is normally held in retracted position
by means of a spring encircling the pin and hav
ing a ?xed end anchored on the bracket and a
16 movable end engaging a part of the hanger and
contacting with a stop on the bracket, when the
strap is not in use. The hanger and bracket are
so constructed as to conceal the spring, and the
stop, which is “adjustable to permit variations in
20 the retracted position of the hanger, is at the
rear of the bracket and thus hidden from view.
Since the spring is not attached to the pin in any
way, assembling of the device is a relatively sim
ple operation and removal and replacement of
25 parts, should the occasion arise, may be done
rapidly and easily.
For a better understanding of the invention,
reference may be made to the accompanying
drawing, in which

Figure 8 is a fragmentary view in front eleva

Figure 9 is a sectional view on the line 9-—9
of Figure 8.
The new hand strap, as illustrated in the
drawing, includes a bracket It provided at its
50 upper end with a plate II which serves as a
means by which the bracket may be attached to
a suitable portion of the car structure, illustrated
conventionally at l2. The bracket is provided at
its lower end with a pair of spaced lugs I3 having
55 openings l4 for the reception of the ends of a pin
inner surface of which is of arcuate form, as
shown in Figure ‘6. At one end of the shield and
opening toward its inner surface is a recess ll, 5
and the shield is provided near its upper end
with a radial shoulder IS. The free end of the
shield is formed with a radial surface’ is, and
threaded into a bore at this end is avscrew it
having an end 2| which projects'beyond the sur- 10l
face l9 and forms an adjustable stop.
>
Mounted rotatably on the pin is a hanger 2?.
which terminates in the usual hand loop 23. At
its upper end, the hanger is formed with spaced
lugs 24 having aligned openings in which
15:.
mounted bushings 25, through which the pin ex
tends, and connecting the lugs along one side
thereof is a shield 26 terminating at lits'free end
in a radial surface 21. Projecting inward from
one of the lugs toward the other is a plate 28, 2.0.
beneath which is a recess 29, and the plate has
a radial end formed with a slot 30.
The inner
surfaces of the shield 26 and the plate 28 are
arcuate in form, as is also the outer surface of
the plate.
25?
Encircling the pin 15 is a coil spring 3! which
has a ?xed end 32 received in a bore 33 in the
shield 16 near the shoulder IS. The other end
34 of the spring is movable and projects radially
from the pin, passing through the slot at in the 30;
plate 28, and, under normal conditions, engaging
the stop 2i.
In the assembled device, the lugs 21! on the
hanger lie in the spaces between the lugs i3 ‘and
the shield It on the bracket with the plate 28 35'.
entering the recess I1. When the strap is not in
use, the movable end 34 of the spring will have
moved in. a clockwise direction, as viewed in
Figure 3, swinging the hanger with it, and the
movement of the end of the spring and hanger 40
will have been limited by engagement of the
spring end with the stop screw 20. The hanger
is then in the retracted position, illustrated in
Figure 1. When the strap is in use, the person
grasping the handle loop will ordinarily swing 45
the hanger to about the vertical position, and this
swinging movement can be continued beyond the
vertical until the radial surface 21 on the shield
25 engages the radial surface l8 on the shield it;
Such movement of the hanger in the counter»; 50.
clockwise direction is against the action of the
spring, and when the handle is released, the
spring restores the hanger to retracted position.
The hanger can be moved manually to a position
somewhat beyond the retracted position, as shown 55

2,137,622
in Figures 1 and 3, this movement continuing
until the surface 29a of the recess 29 engages the
end IQ of the shield. The retracted position of
the strap may be varied, as desired, by adjust
ment of the stop screw 28, and as the screw is
threaded farther into its bore so that its end 2|
projects farther beyond the surface :9, the re
tracted position of the hanger approaches the
vertical.

In the new device, the spring is concealed and
protected by the two shields and the plate so that
the structure may have smooth lines, with the
mechanism wholly out of sight, and since the
adjusting screw is at the rear of the device, it is
15 almost completely hidden from view and does
not impair the appearance of the strap. In the
prior devices, it has been customary to place the
adjusting screw at the front of the strap, and
this is objectionable from the standpoint of ap
20 pearance. Also, in the new strap, the spring is
not anchored to the pin and, accordingly, in as
sembling the device or taking it apart, the pin
can be removed without interference by the
spring. In the prior devices, one end' of the
25 spring has usually been received in a bore in a
pin, so that the pin can not be removed until
the spring has been disengaged therefrom, and
the necessity of thus disconnecting and recon
necting the spring to the pin. makes dismantling
30 and assembling of the prior devices di?icult.
The new hand strap thus offers all the advan
tages of the prior devices in that the hanger is
normally retained in retracted position by spring
pressure, and the retracted position may be var
35 ied, as desired. In addition, the new strap is of
improved appearance and it is easier to assemble
and take apart.
