Description

` UNITED sTATEs PATENT oEErcE.
JOHN L. BUCKLEY .AND JAMES W. COIN,
OF WEATHERFORD, TEXAS.
WIRE CLOTHES-PIN'.
Specication of Letters Patent.
Patented July 28, 1914.
To all ugtom it may concern.
Be it known that we, JOHN L. BCKLEY and JAMES W. COIN, citizens of the United States, residing at lVeatherford, in the county of Parker, State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Wire Clothes-Pins; and we do hereby de- Clare 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 new and useful improvements in wire clothes pins.
The principal object of the invention is to provide a novel form of wire clothes pin which will have a spring -clamping action and which can be readily applied or removed from a clothes line.
Another object of the invention is to provide as an article of manufacture, a novel form of clothes pinformed from a single length of spring wire which is bent so`as to form an opposed pair of spring actuated clamping jaws.
A further object of the invention is to provide as an article' of manufacture, a novel form of clothes piny which is extremely 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 A scope of the claimm'aybe resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the drawing: Figure 1 is a side eleva tion of the invention. Fig. 2 is an elevation at right angles to Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a section on the line 3 3 of Fig. l.
Like reference numerals designate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawing.
Referring to the drawing, the preferred form of our invention comprises a clothes pin which is formedl from a single length of w1re centrally bent to form a coil 5, the ends thereof being bent to form an opposed pair of elongated loops 6 6 constituting clamping jaws. The ends of the loops 6 6 respectively extend inwardly, as at 7 7, from opposite sides of the coil 5 and thence extend outwardly in a direction opposite the jaws 6, as at 8 8, and have their end portions 9 9 bent in'wardly to form consequent spaced finger pieces. These ends 9 are so arranged that the terminals of the wire are bent to form complete loops having extremities 14 that ext-end into the coil 5 so that by these means protection of the clothes when using the device is afforded as well as protection of the fingers of the user from the sharp ends of the wire. The jaws 6 are arranged to move in a general radial direction with respect to the axis of the coil. The connecting portions of the loops 6 are bent outwardly to form guides 10 10. The loops 6 6 are also corrugated las shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, the same being converged to contact adjacent to the coil 5 and then spaced apart to accommodate the clothes line in a loop 11 thus formed. One loop 6 is also formed outward as shown at 13, to provide a second space for the line when the loop 11 will accommodate the clothes.
What is claimed is:
A clothes pin formed from a single length of wire centrally bent to form a coil, the ends of the wire beyond the coil being looped to form opposed jaws .arranged to move transverse the axis of the coil, the ends of the loops extending through the coil from opposite ends thereof and terminating beyond the coil in spacednger pieces the ter- 'minal portions of the loop ends being rebent and lying within the coil.
In testimony whereof, we aiiix our signatures, in the presence of two witnesses.
Witnesses:
K. B. WooLLEr, J. T. HUNTER.'
