To all whom it"mc z concern:

Be it known thatl, GUST 7V. MAn rs'rnoM, a citizen of the United'States, residing at Kane, inthe county of McKean and State of Fennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Ice Creeper-S and I do declare the following to be a'full, clear, and-exact description of the invention,

such aswill enable others skilled in the art tokvlllcll it{11131381131118 to make and use the same.

' This invention relates" to improvements in ice creepers and more part cularly. to 1 those permanently positioned {QIYlIhG 3 heels of a pair of shoes."

may be housed within the heel orprojected I for" use as be desired.

Another object is to provide improved means for holding said creeper in projected or retracted position.

With these and other objects in view, the

invention consists of certain novel features of construction, and the combination and arrangement of parts as will be more fully described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings: Figure 1 I represents a slde elevation of the heel pore tion of a shoe, partly in section showing this improved creeper applied and arranged in inoperative position; Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view thereof; Fig. 3 is a side elevation of a shoe heel showing this improved creeper projected into operative position; Fig. 4 is a bottom plan view thereof.

In the embodiment illustrated, a shoe heel H is shown constructed of leather or other suitable material and having a rubber heel provided interme'diately of its ends preferably midway its lengthwith an outwardly bowed loop 4 for apurpose to be described.

Formed within the rubber heel R is i a recess 5 which maybe of anysuitable or desired configuration and the walls of which are beveled as; shown at 6', sa d beveled wall :recess being-de's -1gned"to prevent clogging or; packing of snow therein.

Pivotally mounted onthe 'sprlng retain ing :menrber 2 is a spur carrying member? here shown in "the form of ;a rectangular loop 8 havingdiverging arms 9 and lOex tending from two of=-the;corners thereof, said-arms being provided at; their free ends with spurs 11, preferablyformed by pointing and bending the terminals ofthe arms in. a

plane at right angles to said arms so that when the member'T is swung rearwardly into'the "POSlhiOIFSllOWILiIIFlgSf3 and 4, these spurs 11 will be positioned outwardly to form surface penetrating members which are designed to become embedded in the ice and prevent slipping of the person wearing the shoes equipped therewith.

- jTwo' largeheaded screws 12 are shown mounted in the heel R in position to engage and support the spur carrying ends of the arms 9 and 10 as is shown clearly in Fig. 4 which thus take the weight caused by the forcing of the spurs into the ice and prevent said spurs from becoming embedded in the rubber heel R.

The rectangular loop 8 of the member 7 is shown constructed of flat metal so that the end bar 13 thereof will be disposed fiat against the plate 1 of the attachment, whether the creeper be arranged in operative or inoperative position as is shown clearly in the drawings, more especially in Figs. 1 and 3.

The spring plate 2 having the outwardly bowed loop 4, exerts its tension to hold the creeper either in operative or inoperative position so that when it is folded flat against the plate 1, all danger of the spur carrying arms 9 and 10 falling accidentally downward and causing injury to polished floors, carpets and the like is avoided.

At the inner portion of the heel H are formed two sockets 14 positioned to receive the'spurs 11 whenv the member 7 is swung forwardly into inoperative position and whereby said spurs are amply protected and prevented from becoming injured or broken.

Ihe walls of loop 4 are inclined in oppo= torsion 1 resilient retaining member mounted therein,v

and a hinge dly mounted 'sp'ur carrying mem her having aflat strip engaged by said rea l tainingemember and serving as a fulcrum for said-j spur-marrying member,- said retaining member havingan;'out bowed portion for receiving said strip andadapted to hold a said spur carrying me'mberi'n either oper- 3 3 ative or inoperative position; i F ;j

The combination with shoe heel having a, recess in-itslower fa'ce,-fof two superposed metal platessecured to said heel in said recess, the outer plate having an outwardly bowed transversely extending loop, and a spur carrying vmember havinga transversely extending -fia-t metal bar mounted for turni-ng movement insaid loo-p, thewal1's of said loop inclining in- {opposite directions and 1 adapted" to resiliently hold said bar in'either of its two positions? whereby the spurs are 7 held in 7 either; operative -orinoperative Y positionz u" 31 1 -.V.\ it. 1, 3.- Y Thecoinbination with a shoe heel having a recess in its lower face, of? two superposed--metal plates; secured to I said: heel {in saidreeess, the outer platehaving an :out- 'wardly bowed transversely extending loop, anda rectangular loop having one; member a Copies of this patentimay lieobtai ned-for five cents each, by addressing the t i '1 L: -f vIlia, slujngto n,J) G1 v nesses.
