CLASP.
APPLICATION FILED OUT- 28, 1913.
. Patented Sept. 15,1914.
FREDERICK SEEBER. OF NEW YORK, N; Y.
CLASP.
Specification of Letters Patent.-
l ateiited Sept. 15, 1914.
Application filed October 28, 1913. Serial No. 797.781.
To all whom it may com-cm Be it known that I, FREDERICK SEEBER, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county and State of l\' cw York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Clasps, of which the tollowing is a full, clear, and exact specification.
This invention relates to clasps, and has for its object to provide a clasp which is simple in construction, very inexpensive to manufacture, and which is capable of tcnaciously gripping a arment or other article.
A specia object is to provide movable locking means which may be retained in either a locked or unlocked position without danger of its being accidentally displaced from one position to the other.
Other objects will appear as the description proceeds.
The invention will be first hereinafter do scribed in connection with the accompanying drawings, which constitute a part of this specification, and then more specifically defined in the claims at the end of the description.
In the accompanyin drawings, in which similar reference characters are used throughout the several-views to designate corresponding parts :Figure 1 is a perspective view of a clasp constructed in accordance with my present invention, the same being drawn to an enlarged scale and snown in its locked or gripping position. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the clasp with its locking member or band in thesame'position as in Fig. 1, and Fig. 3 is an edge view, partly in section to more clearly illustrate the construction of the locking tongue.
It will be understood that the clasp may be used for a'great variety of purposes and may be attached to or carried by various articles of wearing apparel, such as suspenders, hose supporters, etc. As shown in the drawings, the clasp A is attached to a support'G of any sort, a tape attached to a pair of suspenders (not shown) for instance. The clasp is made of a single piece or strip of resilient metal bent upon itself to form opposing jaws B and C. Between the loop formed at the bend of the strip for attachment to the supporting member G, and the gripping ends of the jaws, said jaws or 0p- .posing portions of the clasp are depressed or bent inward toward each other, so that in 1 edge view the clasp is shaped somewhat like the figure 8 with enlargements or spread portions at the to and bottom connected by a narrow or reuced neck. Around this neck or reduced portion of the clasp a locking or clamping band or member D is mounted. Said band is adapted to slide down part Way over the flared lower por- -"tions of the jaws for forcing or clamping them together or in engagement with opposite surfaces of an article H to be supported or retained, but the size of said band is such that it cannot pass entirely over the lower ends of the jaws and become disconnected from the clasp.
In order to hold the locking or clamping band in locked or unlocked position, I provide a locking tongue E which is formed by slitting one of the jaws as clearly illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2. The upper end of this tongue is joined to and integral with the jaw from which it is cut, while the lower end of said tongue is free and normally stands away from said jaw, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3. The extremity of the tongue 7 is bent sharply inward, as at.- F, to form an abrupt abutment for the. upper edge of the locking band when the latter is in clamping position, Figs. 1 and 2. The protruding end of the tongue also serves to hold the locking band in its raised or unlocked position, as shown in Fig. 3.
It will be observed that the tongue is sufliciently long and extends up near enough to the juncture of the two aws to give it practically an independent movement with respect to the jaw from which it is cut, or in other words the. tongue may be depressed independently of the jaw and, vice versa. Thus the tongue has the same effect as a separate locking device, and yet is much simpler in construction and can'be very cheaply made, inasmuch as the whole clasp may be stamped and struck up from a single straight strip of metal, there being no separate parts to be attached and which are so apt to work loose or get out of order.
Having thus described my invention,
what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is 1. A clasp comprising opposing jaws.
normally spread but adapted to yield toward each other, a clamping band mounted to slide simultaneously along both jaws, and a resilient tongue integral with one of said jaws for retaining said band in either locked or unlocked position.
2. As an article of manufacture, a clasp comprising an integral gripping member In testimony whereof I have signed my having opposing jaws and a locking tongue name to this specification in the presence of cut from one of said jaws, and a clamping two attesting witnesses. band mounted to slide simultaneously along FREDERICK SEEBER.
a both jaws and over said tongue, the latter Witnesses:
serving to retain said band in either a locked 7 Sr JACKSON, or unlocked position. P. OFARRELL.
