FRANK J. DOSIAL, JR., OF TOLEDO, IOWA.
CLOTHES-PIN.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 24, 1914.
Application filed May 20, 1912. Serial No. 698,514.
To-aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANK J. DOSTAL, Jr., a citizen of the United States, residing at Toledo, in the county of Tania, State of Iowa, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in ClothesPins; 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.
This invention relates to improvements in clothes pins.
The principal object of the invention is to provide a clothes pin which includes a relatively fixed jaw and a. movable jaw and a resilient means of novel construction. for yieldably holding said jaws closed, whereby the pin may be employed to firmly clamp clothe-s onto a line and retain said clothes against becoming accidentally blown there from.
Another object of the invention is to provide a clothes pin for the purpose described which is composed of a minimum number of parts, is therefore simple in construction and is cheap to manufacture.
lVith these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the construction and novel combination of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and pointed out in the claim hereto appended; it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion, size and minor details of construction within the scope of the claim may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the drawing: Figure l is a side elevation of a clothes pin constructed in accordance with my invention, Fig. 2 is an edge view thereof, Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view taken on the line 33 of Fig. 1, Fig. is a detail longitudinal sectional view taken on the line 44 of Fig. 2, Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the pin, the movable jaw being removed, and Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the movable jaw.
Like reference numerals designate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawing.
Referring to the dri'm'ing, the clothes pin is designated as a whole by the reference letter A. This pin includes a body portion 5 having the usual head 6 formed at one end thereof. and having its other end reduced to form a relatively stationary jaw '7. The body portion 5 adjacent the inner end of the jaw 7 is longitudinally recessed to'form a bearing face 8 which is disposed in a plane parallel to the jaw 7. The body portion 5 is furthermore formed with a latei'al recess 9, and also with a transverse opening 10 formed intermediate the recess 9 and the aw 7 and merging with the face 8.
My invention further comprises a movable jaw 11 which is similar in construction to the jaw 7 and is formed at its inner end with an enlargement 12 having a flat face 13 which is disposed in opposed relation to the face 8 of the body portion 5. Extending from the inner end of the jaw 11 is a tongue 14 which is seated within the recess 9 and forms a fulcrum for said movable jaw. Formed in the enlarged portion 12 is a transverse opening 15 which registers with the opening 10 above described.
Disposed within the openings 10 and 15 is a coil spring 16. the ends thereof terminating in hooks 1717. Transverse pins 18-18 engage within the hooks 17 and respectively bear against the outer faces of the body portion 5 and the movable jaw 11.
In operation. when the clothes pin is secured upon the line, the movable jaw 11 will be forced outwardly from the relatively fixed jaw T and will swing upon its fulcrum or tongue 1-1: against the tension of the spring 16. It will thus be observed that this s iring serves to yieldably retain the movable jaw 11 in operative relation to the fixed jaw 7. and that as soon as the pin is disengaged from the line, the spring 16 will return the movable jaw to its initial position.
hat is claimed is:
A clothes pin comprising a jaw provided with an ofi-set enlarged head, a second jaw its ends secured adjacent the outer faces of provided with a reduced extension, the head the jaws.
of the first jaw being provided adjacent the In testimony whereof, I aifiX my signajanl' with a recess havling side Walls, an end ture, in presence of two Witnesses.
\va 1 and a to) \va1 for receiving there- 7 against correspdnding faces of the etntension FIXANK DOSTAL to form a fulcrum therefor, the jaws being Witnesses: formed with alining bores, and a retractiie FRANK XV. DosTAL, coil spring positioned in the bores having- M. J. KREZOK.
Copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the Commissioner of Patents, Washington, D. C.
