The swinging movement of the carrier 2| is
shown in Figure 6. These movements are ef
against the action of the spring 25, from the po
fected by a handle 23 normally arranged at a
straight angle, as seen in .Figure 3, with the car 30 eition shown in Figure 3 to that shown in Figure

sion spring encircling a rod 3'! pivoted at one end
position shown in Figure 5, from which position,
at 38 to the bracket 39 and slidable through a
additional force does not tend to swing the car
The neck band clamp mechanism includes a
carrier 2| and clamping member 22, the clamp
block or abutment 40 on the carrier 2| near the
rier 2| because of the angle, and during this
movement, the handle moves into the position 35 lower end thereof, the spring 25 being located
shown in Figures 2 or '7 and sets a releasing de
vice through a push rod 24. The movement of
the carrier from starting position is against the
action of a returning spring 25, but when the
clamping member 22 is in operative coaction with
the block or form H), as seen in Figure 6, the car
rier 2| is prevented by such coaction from return
movement under the in?uence of the spring 25.
The pivotal movement of the handle 23 is against
the action of a returning spring or springs 26, 26“
(see Figure 8) and the force of the spring 26 is
su?icient to cause the carrier 2| and the clamp
ing member 22 to move as a unit against the ini
tial compressing of the returning spring 25, until
between the block 40 and the abutment 4| on the
rod near the pivot 38. A buffer spring 42 sur
rounds the rod and acts on the other side of the
block 40 opposite to the spring 25 to prevent a
violent return action of the carrier 2|. The
spring 25 is initially loaded to the desired extent
by adjusting nuts 43 on the rod 31, so that the
action of the spring 26 is initially greater than
the spring 25 during the initial part of the move
ment of the carrier 2| from starting position to
the position shown in Figure 4. When the neck
band clamp mechanism is operated into ?nal po
sition, as shown in Figures 2, 6 or 7, the force of
the spring 25 holds the parts in this position,
the carrier 2| reaches the upright position, as 50 at least while the operator has hold of the han
