' Specification of Letters Patent.

Be it known that, we, Gtrs'rAr H. SGHEF- STROM and Omar A. ANDERSON, citizens of the United States, and residents of .Macomb in the county of McDonough' and State 0 Illinois, have invented certain new and use ful Improvements in Ice-Creepers, of which the followingis a specification.

The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in ice creepers and the 4 like and has for its primary object the provision of an improved type of ice creeper capable of application to various types of shoes regardless of size, shape or material.

Many ice creepers now in use are incapable of application in connection with rubber boots'and other footwear and it is I therefore one of the principal'objects of our invention together with the foregoing to provide an ice creeper which may be applied in position on a rubber boot as well as on the regular leather shoes.

Another object of our invention is to provide an ice creeper of the class described which is adjustable both in length and width to various sizes of shoes, the ice creeper being so constructed as to automatically conform to the shape of the sole of the shoe or boot when a plied thereto.

Other objects and advantages to be derived from the use of our lmproved ice creeper will appear from the'following detail description and the claims, taken with an inspection of the accompanying drawings, in which:

' Figure 1 is a top plan view of an ice creeper embodying the improvements of our invention;

Fig. 2 1s a longitudinal sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1; and.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged fra ental perspective view of the connection. etween the heel and sole sections of our improved ice creeper.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, wherein similar characters of reference designate like and corresponding parts throughout the various views, land 2 designate in their entireties the heel and sole sections of our improved ice creepen, ferring specifically to the heel section the frame is preferably formed of a sheet of 'metal having the central portion thereof provided with an opening 3 for lightening same, suitable calks 4. being arranged to project from the underface thereof. The

rear free end of the plate 1 is tapered as at' '9 and 10,0r the like.

The sole section of our improved creeper comprlses preferably a pair ofarms 11 and 12 hingedly connected by a rivet 13, said rivet having an elongated head 14 for a The free end portions of the arms 11 and 12 are provided with upstanding tongues 15 arranged at an angle relative to the longitudinal axis of said arms and having connected thereto, by means of rivets 16 or the like, fastening means, such as straps 17.

The arms 11 and 12 intermediate their ends are connected by means of a pair of links 18, said links being pivotally connected as at 19 and connected with said arms 11 and 12 as at 20. The'connecting members 19 and 20 preferably form calks and have projecting heads 21.

Theheel and sole sections are adjustably connected by means of a link 21 riveted at 22 to said heel section 1 and being provided adjacent the free end thereof with a plurality of transversely arranged elongated apertures 23. As best shown in Fig. 3 the elongated head 14 of the rivet 13 is rigidly carried by the arms 11 and 12 in such a way that said head normally lies approximately coincidental with the longitudinal axis of the creeper. To connect the heel and sole sections the sections are placed relatively at right angles and the head 14 is inserted through one of the apertures 23. When the ice creeper is straightened for application to a boot or shoe the head 14 becomes arranged at rightangles to the opening into which thesame has been inserted preventing-its dislodgment therefrom. The sole section will automatically adjust itself in the shape and size of the wea'rers shoe or boot when the fastening straps 17 are applied in position.

From the above description taken 1n connection with the accompanying drawing, it is thought that a clear and comprehensive understanding of the construction, operation and advantages of our invention may be had, and while we have shown and described our invention as embodying a specific structure, we desire that it be under.-

purpose which will hereinafter appear.

stood that we may make such changes in said structure as do not depart from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

Having thus fully described our invention, what we claim as new and desire to (secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. An ice creeper of the class described, including heel and sole sections, connecting means for said heel and sole. sections comprising a link having elongated openings therein, said sole section being com osed of a pair of arms pivotally connecte at one of their ends to the said connectm means,

. pair of'links, and a plurality of ca k members, one of said calk members pivotally connectin the links "at one of their ends, the opposite ends being pivotally connected ing one end thereof pivotally connected to the said heel section, the opposite end of the link being provided with a plurality of transverse elongated openings, a rivet, a pair of arms pivotally connected adjacent one of their ends by means of the-said rivet, said rivet having an enlarged head adapted to engage in the said openings, the free ends of the arms being provided with upstanding ton es, fastening straps attached to the sai tongues, a plurality of calks, and a pair of links pivotally connected adjacent one of their ends by one of the said calks, the opposite ends thereof being pivotally connected to the arms intermediate the ends thereof by means of calk members, the said links providing alsupporting means for the toe of the shoe.

In testimony tures hereto.
