Hoyt's patent "relates to so called loose-globe car-lamps; and its nature consists in making the hoop which receives the globe, and connecting the same with the supporting bracket, in such a manner that the hoop can be depressed and turned around for the purpose of removing the globe and replacing the same, and in permanently connecting the receiving hoop with the candle-socket, thereby dispensing with a set of springs." (Patent Number 159,324)
