COWTAIL HOLDER
Jacob Kunkle, Wilson, Kans.
Application January 10, 1936," Serial No. 58,483
9 Claims. ~
My invention relates generally to cowtail hold
ers and particularly to a device which may en
circle the hind leg of the animal and to which
the tail may be secured to prevent its movement
5 during the milking or other work in the vicinity
of the animal.
I
The objects of the invention are, ?rst; to pro
vide a cowtail holder simple in construction and
easy to operate, providing a’ positive acting and
rugged inexpensive device.
ing member II, and the spring actuating and
clamp locking lever ‘I may be swung in the direc
tion shown by arrow in Fig. 2, until abutting
position prior to the tail clamping operation.
clamping member 2, at which time spring II will
have passed beyond a vertical plane passing
through transverse extension 4, to eifectively 15
clamp tail I3 between said spring II and mem
ber 4. (See Figs. 5 and 6.) In full clamping
position, ?nger 9 is engaging slot 5 and ?nger 8
is abutting end ID of clamping member 2, the ac
tion of spring II retaining locking member in
animal upon which used.
Further objects and advantages of the inven
tion as well as its operation will be apparent by
referring to the following description in connec
tion with the accompanying drawing in which?
Fig. 1 is a perspective View of the device in
full clamping position.v
Fig. 2 is a similar view with the tail clamp
ing means in disengaged position.
Fig. 3 is a similar view with both the tail
25
and clamping means in fully disengaged position,
the device being slightly modi?ed, means being
provided for adjusting the device to ?t the par
ticular size of leg on which applied.
Fig. 4 is a top plan view of the device in full
clamping position.
Fig. 5 is a front end view of the same, and
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary, vertical, sectional view
on the line-6—-6 of Fig. 5 showing the tail clamp~
35 ing means in clamping position.
Referring now to the drawing by numerals of
reference, I and 2 designate leg clamping mem
bers, member 2 being pivotally secured to mem
ber I at 3, the other end of member I being se
4 cured to transverse portion 4 having slot or open
ing 5 adapted to be engaged by bifurcated end 6
of actuating or looking member 1 having ?ngers
8 and 9 adapted to engage slot 5 and end I0 in
transverse portion 4 and clamping member 2.
45 The clamping member 2 is shown as being formed
of a wire or rod providing opening 2", but it may
be made of a solid piece of material with a suit
able slot at locking end III.
A resilient member or spring II is mounted
50 between the end I2 of transverse portion 4 and
actuating or looking member ‘I. The spring II
in combination with the transverse member 4
forms a tail clamping means as shown in Figs. 1,
5, and 6.
55
bers I and 2 are placed around the leg L of the .
animal and member 2 is moved toward member I
until end I0 is adjacent the slotted end of trans
verse member '4. (See Fig. 2.) Actuating or
looking member ‘I is swung toward transverse
member 4 until ?ngers'8 and 9 of bifurcated end
6 ‘engage slot 5 and end ID of clamping member
2. The tail I3 may be inserted at this time be
tween transverse member 4 and spring or retain
Second; to provide a cowt-ail holder in which
the leg clamping means are locked in clamping
Third; to' provide a cowtail holder capable of
being adjusted in size to snugly ?t the leg of the
30
(Cl. 119-105)
'
In operating the device, the leg clamping mem
locking position.
The device may be modi?ed as shown in Fig.
3 to permit adjustment of locking or clamping
members Ia and 2a to ?t the leg of the animal
upon which the device is to be used. Clamping
member Ia has extensible portion I’, slidably
supported thereon by means of threaded exten
sion I4 passing through slot I5, a suitable nut I6
being provided for locking members Ia and I' in
adjusted position. Clamping member 2a has ex 30
tension 2' having looped ends I‘! slidably posi
tioned on member 2a, the ends I8 of which are
also looped about extension 2’. to provide means
for adjusting clamping member 2a.
From the foregoing it will be apparent that I
have provided a novel tail holder which may be
quickly and effectively applied and will provide
positive tail clamping means, inexpensive and
sturdy in construction.
As herein described and drawn, the invention 40
illustrates the preferred embodiments of same
as it now appears to me, but I reserve the right
to make such changes in form, proportion and
details of construction as do not depart from the
spirit of the invention.

What I claim as new and desire to secure by
Letters Patent is:
1. A tail holder comprising a pair of leg
clamping members, a transverse portion on one
of said members, and means for securing the 50
other clamping member to the’ transverse por
tion, said means including means for clamping
the tail of the animal to the transverse portion.
2. The structure as speci?ed in claim 1, said
?rst named means comprising a clamping lever 55
2
2,142,400
engageable with the transverse portion and the
second clamping member.
3. The structure as speci?ed in claim 1, each
of said leg clamping members comprising slid
5 ably related portions, and means for locking said
sliding portions of the leg clamping members
in adjusted position substantially as described
and for the purpose speci?ed.
4. A cowtail holder comprising a pair of leg
10 clamping members, one of said clamping mem
ing the other end of the second clamping mem
her to one end of the transverse member, said
spring means being connected with said trans
verse member and movable into and out of tail
holding‘ relation therewith.
7. A tail holder comprising a pair of leg clamp
ing members, a transverse portion on one of said
members, and means for securing the other
clamping member to the transverse portion, said

ond clamping member to one end of the trans
means engageable with the transverse portion
and the second clamping member, said spring
means being adapted to retain the clamping lever
in clamping position and to clamp the tail of the
animal to the transverse portion.
8. A tail holder comprising a pair of leg-clamp
verse member, said means including a member
