MATO rrTzMAURrcE MALONEY, or ATLANTIC BEACH, FLORIDA.

HAT-HOLDER.

l Specication of Letters Patent.

Patented aan. 23, 1917.

Application filed Julyrlf', 1916. Serial No. 109,746.

To all whom t may concern Be it known that I, YMATO FITZMAUnIcE llALoNEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Atlantic Beach, in the county of Duval and State of Florida, have invented certain new and useful lmprovements in Hat-Holders; and l do 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 new and useful improvements in devices for suspending articles of clothing when not in use, and has special reference to hats and caps, and the primary object of the invention is to provide a simple and compact article, that when not invuse, may be easily carried from place to place.

Another object of the invention is to provide a device of this character which is easily and simply constructed, inexpensive to manufacture, and one which will be very ehcient in operation.

With these and numerous other objects in view, my invention consists in the novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts which will be herein referred to and more particularly pointed out in the specification and claim.

In the accompanying drawings Figure l is a side elevation of the holder; Fig. 2 is an enlarged front elevation of the same;

Fig. 3 is a vertical section taken on the line 3 3 ofF ig. 2; and Fig. 4 is a detail front view of the section cup.

In describing my invention, I shall refer to the drawings in which similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views and in which the numeral 1 designates a stationary jaw that comprises the base of my holder, and which is provided with raised side portions 2 intermediate its ends. These raised side portions 2 are provided adjacent their for ward end with a transversely extending pivot pin 3 secured in the opposite sides, while adjacent their rear ends and contiguous the jaw, are alining openings 4 for` a purpose to be hereinafter more-fully described.

The forward portion of the stationary jaw 1 is provided with an upwardly projecting flange 5, which extends around the same and adjacent the extremity of said front portion of the jaw are upstruck lugs 6, that are adapted to securely hold a rubber pad 7 in the jaw This pad 7 projects the upper edge of the flange 5, and affords a protection for the article secured between the jaws of the device when in operation;

`The opposite end of the jaw l is bent hookshaped as shown at 8, so that this holder may be held supported in various places. This hoolcshaped end is an integral part of the stationary jaw, and when it is found desirable to fix the holder in a certain position, may be secured to the support in which it is positioned.

-The holderis provided with a movable jaw 9, which has large side portions 10 adjacent its inner end that are positioned between the side portions 2 of the stationary jaw, and have alining openings 11 therethrough through which `the pivot pin 3 is positioned. By this means, the jaw 9 will be pivotally mounted -vwith respect to the stationary jaw 1, and the outer end of the same will be adapted to move toward and from the outer end of the jaw 1. The inner end of the movable jaw'9 is provided with a transversely extending recess 12 therein fer a purpose to be hereinafter more fully described. v

The movable jaw 9 is provided with a projecting flange 1'3 around its edge, and adjacent the outer end lof this flange 13 are inwardly projecting lugs 14, that are adapted to securely engage the edges of a rubber `cap 15 positioned in a socket 16 formed in said end of the jaw. This rubberrcap l5 will facilitate the holding of an article between tie jaws, without injuring the same. Mounted on the pivot pin 3 is a coil spring 17 so arranged that the movable jaw 9 will benormally held open, and away from the fixedor stationary jaw 1.

The movable jaw 9 is operated by a crank lever 1S that is provided with laterally projecting lugs 19 on opposite sides of its bent portions, that are adapted to be positioned through the alining openings 4 in the side portions 2 of the stationary jaw. This crank ylever is-positioned as clearly shown in Figs.

2 and 3 of the drawings, and it will be obvious that upon operation of the same, the outer end of the movable jaw will be moved toward and from .the stationary jaw.

When the parts of this holder are positioned as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, the movable jaw will be positioned away adjacent the extremity.V a slight distance abovel ico] from the fixed jaw, and an article, as Jfor instance the brim of a hat, may be inserted between these jaws. The crank lever 18 is then moved downwardly7 toward the fixed jaw l, whereupon its bent vend will engage the inner end of the movable jaw and rock the same so that its outer end will be forced inwardly toward the fixed jaw, thereby securely locking the hat brim therebetween. When the bent end of the crank levelreaches a point :adjacent the eXtrei ity of the linner end of the movable jaw, it will drop into the transversely extending recess i2, and will securely lock the parts.

The rubber pad on the fixed jaw will prevent any injury to the hat brim, while the rubber cap on the movable jaw will form an air chamber that will Jform an additional locking means to hold the hat brim in position. Owing' to the fact that this holder is such a small compact device, the same may be easily carried from place to place. Its use will be found especially advantageous in churches, motion picture shows, trains, dining rooms,` and other places where the user desires to hang his hat in some convenient place where it will be out of the way. This device may be hooked over the front of a pew or seat and the hat secured between its jaws willbe held until needed. Upon disengagement oi' the hat, the article may be placed in the users pocket and easily carl ried, owing to the fact that it will occupy very little space. The pin holes in the handle are for ladies hat pins to hold the same in position.

From the foregoing description, the construction and operation of this garment holder, the manner of applying the same to use and the operation thereof will b'e readily understood, and it will be seen that I have provided a simple and efficient means for carrying' out the objects 'of this invention.

l claim Y A device of the class described comprising a short jaw and a long jaw having a pivoted connection with each other, anda springcoil coacting with the jaws to normally hold them open,ra fiat pad on the lower end oi the long jaw, a recessed pad on the lower end of the short jaw, the long jaw having a locking lever pivoted thereto above the common pivot of the jaws, said short jaw having a transverse groove adjacent its upper end, and a free end of the locking lever adapted to engage the upper end of sail short jaw and to be positioned in the transverse groove to positively lock the jaws in closed position.

In testimony whereof l have hereunto Set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
