This invention relates to ear protectors and is designed particularly to protect the drum of the ear from concussions.

The object of the invention is to provide a simple and eflicient device of this character which may be readily attached to the head gear and which may be readily removed and re laced when desired.

Further ObJGCtS of this invention will appear as the following specific description is read in connection with the accompanying drawing which forms a part of this application, and in which Figure 1 is a side elevation. Fig. 2 is an elevation taken at right angles to Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a vertical longitudinal section on the line 44 of Fig. 2.

Referring more particularly to the drawings 1 represents a cup shaped body the upper portion of which is provided with an inwardly extending flange 2 adapted to receive the helix of the ear and the lower portion of which is hollowed out to receive the lob ule. The edges of the walls are so constructed that they will fit the head whereby the device may be placed into engagement with the head after being fitted to the ear and thereby produce a suction or vacuum for holding the device closely to the head.

Extending inwardly from one of the walls at its outer edge is a lug or teat 3 adapted to.

enter the lower concha. This lug or teat 3 is provided with a recess 4 to receive the tragus. The upper portion of the body has projecting therefrom an arm or finger 5 having an aperture (3 arranged therein to receive any suitable type of connecting means for joining the ear. protector to the head gear. The entire device is preferably constructed of vulcanized rubber or other similar material and the edges of its walls are constructed of soft rubber so as to form a tight joint between the walls and the head whereby a vacuum may be produced by cuphat is claimed is An ear protector comprising a cup shaped hard rubber body having soft rubber edges adapted to fit the head, said body adapted to be arranged over the ear with the edges in engagement with the head so that a suction may be formed, an inwardly extending flange adapted to cover the helix of the car, a teat or lug extending transversely inward from one of the walls of the body and adapted to fit the lower concha of the ear, said teat or lug being recessed to receive the 'tragus, and a supporting arm extending vertically from the upper portion of the body.

In testimony whereof I ailix ny signature in presence of two witnesses.
