FRUIT JAR LIFTER Filed May 26, 1954 Passwd lMarv i4, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT orales anemie ,..W L i Application May 26, 1934, No. 727,831 1 owm. (ci. 294-28) The present invention relates to a fruit jar lifter and has for its prime object to provide means whereby hot fruit jars maybe easily handled in moving them from place to place par.-
ticularly in the process of filling the jars.
Another very important object of the invention resides in the provision of a lifting implement of this nature which is exceedingly simple in its construction, thoroughly eflicient and reliable in use, inexpensive to manufacture, and otherwise well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed.
With the above and numerous other objects in view as will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts as will hereinafter be more fully described and claimed.
In the drawing:
Figure 1 is a top plan view of an implement embodying the features of my invention.
Figure 2 is a side elevation thereof.
Figure 3 is an elevation showing the inner side of one jaw.
Figure 4 is an end view.
Figure 5 is a detail sectional view taken substantially on the line 5 5 of Figure 3, and
Figure 6 is a detail section taken substantially on the line 6-6 of Figure 3.
Referring to the drawing in detail it will be seen that there are a pair of jaws. Each jaw is constructed of a strip of metal bent to provide a pair of semi-circular portions 5 and 6 connected by a straight portion 1. A straight portion 8 projects from the end of the semi-circular portion 6. The ends of the'semi-circular portions 5 are hingedly connected together as at l. The portion 6 is curved on a smaller diameter than the portion 5. Wooden handles I0 are secured as at Il to the portions 8 and have flat opposed faces. The other portions of these handles are curved so that when the handles are in the grip of a hand the portions engaging the hand are smooth and rounded.
Rubber linings .I2 are secured on the inner faces of the portions 5 and 6 and have their inner faces corrugated as indicated at Il.
In Figure 5 I have illustrated the bolt rivets I5 which hold the lining on the portions 5 and 6. It will .be noted that these bolt rivets are embedded in the rubber linings and do not contact with the Jaw when being lifted.
It is thought that the construction, utility and advantages of this invention will now be quite apparent to those skilled inv this art without a more detailed description thereof. t
The present embodiment of the invention has 1i) been described in considerable detail merely for the purpose of exemplication since in actual practice it attains the features of advantage enumerated as desirable in the statement of the invention and the above description. y 15 It will be apparent that changes in the details of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed or sacriiic- 20 ing any of its advantages.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is:
A device of the class described comprising a pair of elongated strips of considerable width,
each strip having a pair of semi-circular portions, one larger than the other and a short straight portion connecting the adjacent ends of the senil-circular portions together, the large semi-circular portion terminating close to one end of the strip and the small semi-circular portion being spaced from the opposite end of the strip, said opposite end of the strip being straight, handles connected to said opposite ends of the. strips and having flat inner faces and rounded outer faces, the ends of the strips opposite those ends to which the handles are connected being rolled to form barrels, and a pin passing through the barrels and hingedly connecting the two strips togetheiga lining of resilient material for each semi-circular portion of each strip and rivets connecting the lining to the strip, the inner end of each rivet being embedded in the lining.
