RUDOLPH F. BARTEL, OF BAYONNE, NEW JERSEY.
BUCKLE.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, RUDOLPH F. BARTEL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Bayonne, in the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, have invented new and useful Improvements in Buckles, of whlch the following is a specification.
This invention relates to buckles, more especially of that class wherein the metal parts are shielded by the webbing; and the objects of the same are to simpllfy and reduce the size of the metal parts, to avoid the existence of projections on which anything can catch, to inclose that part which stands toward the body of the wearer so as to prevent rust from reaching his underclothing, to put the parts under tension tending to hold the buckle closed, and generally to improve and simplify the construction of the whole. These ends are accomplished in the manner set forth in the following specification and illustrated in the drawings wherem- Figure 1 is a front elevation, Fig. 2 a side view, and Fig. 3 a vertical sectional View showing the buckle in place on the webbing. Fig. 4: is a front view and Fig. 5 a plan view of the buckle alone. Fig. 6 is a section of a slight modification.
There are but two metal parts of this buckle. The front member 0 is a substantially flat plate having a cross recess 6 which may be a slot cut through the plate as shown generally in the drawings or an indentation or groove stamped into the plate as seen in Fig. 6. I prefer the slot best seen in Figs. 1 and 3 because it presents decided upper and lower edges. Directly oppositethe ends of the slot the metal of the plate at its sides is bent to the rear into pivot arms (Z whose extremities are bent inward toward each other behind the plate as best seen in Fig. 5.
The rear member is a lever of substantially L-shape in edge view, and it comprises a grip h preferably having a toothed edge a, a finger piece 5, and eyes 9 which stand in the angle-between the grip and finger piece and are of a size to loosely re ceive the pivots (Z. The latter project inwardly into or entirely through the eyes, and the bend of the rear member entirely covers the extremities of the pivots so that it is impossible for anything to catch thereon. The above parts are by preference stamped from sheet metal of the proper Specification of Letters Patent.

stiffness and the buckle may be finished as by nickeling or j apanning.
IVhen this buckle is used on suspenders, I consider it important that its rear member be entirely inclosed by the webbing thereof so that the underclothing of the wearer shall not come in contact with any metal part and become worn or rusted. This I accomplish by passing the body of the webbing f down between the two members, thence through the chape or other attachment to the trousers not shown in the drawings, thence again upward, and finally forming it into a loop f whose rear side passes over the angle of the rear metal member and whose front side is impaled on the teeth a and loose below them. The latter project slightly therethrough and when the parts are at rest the teeth extend straight toward the center of the recess 6. The length of the pivot arms (Z is such that the tips ofthe teeth then stand a little nearer the flat plate 0 than the thickness of the webbing, and hence it is deflected a trifle out of the straight line and projected by the grip 72v into the recess 6 whose upper and lower edges cooperate with the teeth to securely engage the webbing. Tension on the rear side of the loop 7" tends to rock the rear metal member and throw the finger piece 1) toward the front member, while the tension on the upright body portion f of the webbing serves to assist in holding the parts closed. In order to, disengage, the operator grasps the loop f and moves it with the finger piece away from the front member 0. This action turns the rear member on its pivots and moves the grip downward as will be understood.
The modification shown in Fig. 6 merely substitutes a groove for the slot, and thus presents another form of recess.
I have spoken of the member a as the front member because ordinarily it will stand remote from the wearer and hence itcannot come in contact with his underclothing. In that position of parts his underclothing is protected from the other member by the loop f, and hence if the metal becomes rusted by perspiration the underclotlr ing will not be soiled. There are no sharp points or angles to catch on the clothing or on any extraneous object, and the pivots (Z where they pass over the edge of the webbing are rounded as best seen in Fig. 5. This buckle is extremely simple and it exerts a positive grip on the suspenders. If the latter should become worn the loop can be opened and restitched to bring the projections at at another point in the loop, and hence they will engage the webbing f at another point.
What is claimed as new is:
In a suspender construction or the like, the combination with a front member formed with a transverse recess presenting upper and lower edges and also formed at its ends with pivot arms which are located opposite the extremities of the recess and are bent rearward and then inward toward each other, and an L shaped rear member the short arm of which is formed with a toothed edge while the long arm thereof forms a finger piece, eyes being provided in the angle between the two arms of the L shaped rear member for the reception of the inwardly extended extremities of the before mentioned pivot arms, of a webbing which passes between the front and rear members and has the extremity thereof formed with a loop completely inclosing the L shaped member, the teeth upon the edge of the short arm of the latter passing through the loop and co-acting with the upper and lower edges of the recess to engage the body portion of the webbing.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
