Patented Mar. 3, 1914.
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
STEPHEN M. PALMER,
OF 'IONICA, ILLINOIS.
OVERSHOE-RETAINER.
Specification of Application filed May 14,
Tooll whomit may concern '-B,e itknownthatI,'S'rnrrmn- M. PALMER, a citizen of the United States, .residin at Tonica, in the county of La Salle and tate of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Qvershoe-Retainers,
of which the following is a specification, refwhich is secured to the retainer upon each side of the shoe and the ends thereof tied together over the instep of the foot.
Another object of the invention is to provide a retainer of the above character which will possess advantages in points of chiciency and durability, is inexpensive of manufacture and at the same time is simple in constructioz: and operation.
With the above and other objects in view, this invent an consists in the novel features of COIlS'llI'lltwl-IOII and the combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described, pointed out in the claims and shown in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a t tai perspective view of an overshoe illustrating the application of my improved retainer; Fig. 2 is a detail perspective view of the retainer member; and Fig. 3 is a similar view illustrating the same in its folded position.
In carrying out my invention, I provide a single length of pliable wire, one end of which is bent to form an elongated loop 1, the other end of the wire being then bent to further form a curved U-shaped member 2, which is adapted to engage around the heel of the overshoe. After the U-shaped member 2 has been formed, the end of the wire is twisted, as shown at 3, and then bent to form the elongated loop 4:, the wire after forming .the loop 4 being engaged with the twisted portion 3 and then bent to form the U-shaped stirrup 5 which is adapted to engage beneath the foot in front of the heel of the overshoe. It will be apparent that my improved fastener may be formed from a Letters Pat nt Patented Mar. 3,1914.
1913. Serial No. 767,746.
1 ring which comprisesa single length of wire by so shaping the ring that it will provide the loops 1 andd and by twisting *portiQnS of the ring, to form the U-shaped members 2 and 5 which engage the heeland the bottom of the foot and front of the heel.
In applving my improved device to the foot of the wearer, the overshoe is first placed in position upon the foot and the stirrup 5 engaged beneath the bottom of the overshoe in front of the heel portion thereof. The U-shaped portion 2 ,is then engaged with the rear of the heel of the overshoe and the retainer is securely held in position by means of the shoe string 6, the ends of which are passed through the loops 1 and 4 and tied over the instep of the foot, as shown at 7. It will be readily apparent that the extreme end of the wire, after forming the U- shaped member 5, is engaged with the twist-- ed portion of the first end, as shown at 8.
From the above it will be readily apparentthat I have provided a simple and durable overshoe retainer which, if constructed of a suitable pliable wire, may be quickly and readily folded together, as illustrated in Fig. 3 and placed in the pocket or in the also be apparent that the device may be quickly and readily unfolded and applied to the overs-hoe when it is desired to use the same, the same being securely held in position by means of the shoe string 6, as illustrated in Fig. 1. It will be readily apparent that any suitable means may be used for connecting the loops 1 and 4c in place of the string 6. It will be readily apparent that when the device is ready for use, the member 5 will be disposed at right angles to the member 2 so that the same may be quickly and readily applied to the heel of the men shoe. From the above description it will be readily apparent that I have provided a simple and durable device of the class described which can be manufactured at a comaratively low cost.
While I have shown and described the preferred form of my invention, it will be obvious that various changes in the details of construction and in the proportions may be resorted to for successfully carrying my invention into practice, without sacrificing any of the novel features or departing from the scope of the appended claims. What I claim is 1. A device of the class described includtoe of the overshoe when not in use. It will.
ing a single length of Wire bent to form U- shaped members disposed at right angles to each other, and elongated loops formed in the wire. at the junction of the two U- shaped members and a detachable connection between said loops.
2. A device of the class. described including a single length of wire, one end of which is bent to form an elongated loop, said Wire being thence bent to form a curved U- shaped member, and thence bent to form a second loop arranged in spaced relation with the first with a portion of wire between each loop and said Ushaped member, said wire being thencebent to form a second Ushaped member disposed atright angles to the first U-shaped portion and its extreme end being twisted upon the portion between the first loop and the first U-shaped member, and iexible connecting means between said loops, as and for the purpose set forth.
In testimony whereof I hereunto aflix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
