The Berry Quick Hitch Device.
Mr. Charles E. Berry, the inventor and pioneer manufacturer of quick-hitch devices for fire, police, and ambulance departments, needs no introduction to firemen. His work with the fire departments for thirty-five or forty years and the world-wide application of his apparatus have made his name well known.
Attention is called here to Mr. Berry’s new booklet which is a brief catalogue of his product. The booklet is now in press, being handsomely printed in two colors on coated paper, and showing finely finished illustrations of the enginehouse devices. In fact it is the finest and most up-to-date publication describing fire department supplies.
The hanging harness, which made the quickhitch possible, is given a prominent place in the booklet, the description following being of the accessories such as hames, hangers, ceiling springs, snaps, breast-plate locks, etc. All these devices have been improved from time to time by Mr. Berry, his constant aim being to reduce the time of harnessing and the production of the strongest and most durable goods. In the booklet is given a short list showing a few of the hundreds of cities in which the Berry devices arc used in the fire and police departments.
Everyone interested in this apparatus should have one of these booklets which may be obtained by writing to Mr. Charles E. Berry, 214 Washington street, Somerville, Mass.
