Description

A. F. GRAUL.
HAT PIN FASTENER.
APPLICATION FILED 00w. 6, 1909.
Patented Oct. 22, 1912.
INVENTOR WITNESSES: 8. CL. M
ALBERT IE. GRA'UL, 0F NEVARK, NEW JERSEY;
HAT-PIN FASTENER.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed October 5, 1909. Serial No. 521,071.
T 0 all whom it may concern;
Be it known that I, ALBERT F. GRAUL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Newark, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hat-Pin Fasteners; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to a hat pin which is adapted to be placed in a hat and passed through the hair of the wearer to secure the hat to the head, and is designed to be limited in its movement into and from the hat so that it is not necessary to remove the hat pin entirely from the hat, and in this way but one end of the hat pin is released and the hat pin is not apt to be lost.
The invention is designed to provide a hat pin having a button or finger-piece arranged to slide on the hat pin, and having means for securing the button or fingerpiece to a hat after the hat pin is in place, the finger-piece being operated from the outside of the hat and having means for detachably securing it.
The button is preferably made with a head that is raised, that is, one that is not flat, so that it can be grasped for turning and which has a perforation through it which forms a guide for the pin and holds the pin in extension of the perforation in the button when the pin is withdrawn to its outward limit of movement, when the button is in place on the hat. The spiral or curved wire on the button provides a means for fastening the button at angles to the hat, that is, the button need not be flat against the hat and the pins can be guided at certain angles which is sometimes desirable, although it will be understood that the angle can be altered by forcing the button after it is in place, which forcing is possible through the fact that the wire is resilient.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective View of the improved hat pin, and Fig. 2 is a side view of the same showing it partially inserted in the side of a hat, the hat being shown in section.
The device comprises the pin portion 10 which is provided on one end with a head 11 and on the other end with a flattened portion 12 or similar structure to enlarge the measurement of the pin diametrically. A button or finger-piece 15 has a perforation centrally arranged therein whereby it is adapted to slide on the pin, the sliding movement being limited in one direction by the head 11, and in the other direction by the portion 12 of the pin, which portion is too large to pass through the perforation in the button. A wire emerges from the button 15 on the side toward the point of the pin and eccentric to the perforation, and is then twisted into a helix 17 and has its end pointed at 18. The button is preferably made with a thicker head and is not simply a flat plate, although a fiat button can be employed, but the heavier head is preferred because the pin is then seated in the perforation through the button, which perforation is long enough to guide the pin and hold it in its path of travel even when it is withdrawn to its outward limit of movement. The helix amounts to a turn and a half of the curved wire, which provides sufficent material for securing the helix to a hat as shown in Fig. 2, and the straight portion 16 gives enough clearance between the helix and the button 15 to allow for any trimming or other projections on the hat through which the pin is passed. If there is no trimming at the place where the pin is inserted the button can be screwed up tight against the hat. The pin can be inserted in the hat in the first instance and then the button 15 is slid along the pin until the point 18 engages the hat, and then by turning the button the wire is forced into the hat and holds the button against the hat or the button can be put in place first and then any pin can be inserted through the perforation. The button is operated from the outside and can be removed from the hatand placed on the hat without removing Patented Oct. 22,1912;
the hat from the head, and is quickly and easily attached and detached. When the pin is withdrawn from the hat the portion 12 engages the button 15 and is held from any further removal unless the button 15 is also removed, and when the pin is again puphed into the hat it will enter the same I am aware that hat pins have been provided with means to limit their outward movement, but this structure, embodying a means to be attached and detached from the hat from the outside, is new.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is In combination with a hat pin having a head 011 one end and having an enlargement on its pointed end, of a button formed with a head having a centrally arranged perforation whereby the pin can slide freely in the button, and a wire arranged into a helix having a pointed end, the wire surrounding the pin and being secured to the button by a straight portion at a point to one side of the perforation whereby the button 15 material of the hat, the button being spaced 20 from the crown of the hat.
In testimony, that I claim the foregoing, I have hereunto set my hand this 27th day of September 1909.
