Abstract

The connection of small springs to mechanical elements within a machine is facilitated by the clamping hook. This includes wire 1 extending through elongated tube 2 and having a hook-shaped portion 3 formed on one of its ends. The opposite end of the wire is connected to pin 4. The latter is carried by cap 5 slidably mounted on enlarged cylindrical portion 6 of tube 2.

Spring Hook

The connection of small springs to mechanical elements within a machine is facilitated by the clamping hook. This includes wire 1 extending through elongated tube 2 and having a hook-shaped portion 3 formed on one of its ends. The opposite end of the wire is connected to pin 4. The latter is carried by cap 5 slidably mounted on enlarged cylindrical portion 6 of tube 2.

Spring 7 acts within portion 6 to force pin 4 and cap 5 in a direction to hold hooked end 3 against the end of tube 2. Formed in the small end of the tube is a wedge shaped notch. This receives the end of the hooked portion for locking in place the end of a spring which may be engaged. Flange 8 is formed on the tube for engagement by the operator's fingers while the thumb acts on cap 5 to move the hooked wire to a releasing position.
