Dictionary Definition

1. A belt clamp for a conveyor belt, comprising:
a channel member having a base wall and a pair of parallel sidewalls defining a channel, the length of the channel member being sufficient to span the width of the belt;
a bar member sized to span the conveyor belt and to fit into said channel together with a thickness of the belt;
connecting means pivotally interconnecting the bar member and the channel member on opposite sides of the belt so that the bar member can rotate about a pair of spaced-apart pivot axes parallel to the sidewalls into said channel, together with said belt thickness, to engage the belt against the channel member; and
attachment means connected to the bar member for attaching the clamp to a belt-pulling means for pulling the belt lengthwise in a direction to tension the belt;
the attachment means including means for rotating the bar member to the channel as the belt is pulled lengthwise.

2. A belt clamp according to claim 1 in which the channel member includes means defining a lever arm extending lengthwise of the belt in a direction opposite the direction to tension the belt for engaging the belt and thereby resisting rotation of the channel member.
3. A belt clamp according to claim 2 in which the attachment means is connected to the bar member intermediate its ends and is the sole connection between the clamp and the belt-pulling means.
4. A belt clamp for a conveyor belt, comprising:
a channel member having a base wall and a pair of parallel sidewalls defining a channel, the length of the channel member being sufficient to span the width of the belt;
a bar member sized to span the conveyor belt and to fit into said channel together with a thickness of the belt;
connecting means pivotally interconnecting the bar member and the channel member on opposite sides of the belt so that the bar member can rotate about a pair of spaced-apart pivot axes parallel to the sidewalls into said channel, together with said belt thickness, to engage the belt against the channel member; and
attachment means connected to the bar member for attaching the clamp to a belt-pulling means for pulling the belt lengthwise in a direction to tension the belt;
the attachment means including means for rotating the bar member into the channel as the belt is pulled lengthwise;
the channel member including means defining a third sidewall parallel to said pair of sidewalls and spaced therefrom to define a second channel, the connecting means being positioned to rotate the bar member about the middle one of said sidewalls into either one of said channels.
