Scriven and Taylor's patent said that they are "aware that swings or scups for young children have long been in common use provided with straps in front thereof, and others having the front side to slide up and down like a window-sash are also well known to the public, and either of the above devices are liable to be removed by the child itself while suspended in the seat..." Their improvement adds a spring-hook or catch to hold the rope in place. (Patent Number 122,066)
