This invention relates to electrical ground
clamp or connections and more particularly to
arc Welding connections.
One of the objects of this invention is the pro
vision of a clamp adapted to be connected to
various sizes of conductors.

thus securing the device to the metal in electri-‘
cal circuit.
To secure the device, for instance, inside an
angular metal bar C, members I and 2 are pulled
against spring tension and contacts II--I2 move
toward each other and may be inserted in tube
Another object of this invention is the provi
sion of an adjustable clamp.
