Description

L. SOREN. STEEL HELMET.
APPLICATION FILED JAN. 31.1918.
Patented Oct. 1, 1918.
LOUIS SOREN, OF TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA.
STEEL HELMET.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Oct. 1, 1913.
Application filed January 31, 1918. Serial No. 214,714.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, LomsSoREN, of the city of Toronto, in the county of York, in the Province ofOntario, Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Steel Helmets, of which the following is the specification.
My invention relates to improvements 111 steel helmets, and the object of the invention is to devise means for receiving the impact of a bullet so as to reduce the momentum thereof before reaching the crown of the helmet and thereby prevent it piercing therethrough and it consists essentially of the following arrangement and construction of parts as hereinafter more particularly ex plained.
Figure 1, is a perspective view of my helmet.
Fig. 2, is a perspective detail view of the protective means for the helmet.
Fig. 3, is a perspective detail of the helmet showing my protective means detached therefrom.
Fig. 4., is a longitudinal section through Fig. 1.
In the drawings like letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the various figures.
1 indicates a steel helmet of any suitable construction commonly in use and provided with the ordinary crown portion 1*. 2 indicates a supplemental crown member forming a protective means for the crown 1*. The crown member 2, when in position upon the helmet, fits around the base of the crown 1* and extends upwardly so as to be spaced a considerable distance from the crown of the helmet proper as clearly indicated in Fig. 4c.
The member 2 comprises a central circular portion 2 from which extend downwardly a series of overlapping spring tongue mem here 3, assuming a slightly spiral arrangement one to the other, their lower ends being connected by means of a surrounding band 4.
Copies 01' this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the the bullet and 5 is an arched strap secured at its ends to the inner wall of the member 2 and extends across the .same; hen the member2 is in position upon the helmet l the band 5 fits on the crown 1 6 and 7 indicate securing lugs by means of which, when the strap 5 is placed in position against the crown 1 of the helmet 1, the member 2 is turned circumferentially so as to carry the diametrically opposite portions of the strap 5 into engagement with the members 6 and 7 thereby securely looking the member 2 to the helmet.
It will thus be seen that when a bullet strikes the member 2 that the tongues 3, being resilient, will give to a certain extent and break the momentum of the bullet so that if it should pass therethrough and strike the crown it will not pierce the same. Even if the bullet should be deflected by the tongues 3 and force its way in between two overlapping tongues it will not only deflect the bullet from .the crown of the helmet proper but will also break the momentum of prevent it doing any damage to the wearer of the helmet.
What I claim as my invention is.
1. A helmet protective device comprising a crown member formed by a central body portion, and curved tongue members extending radially therefrom in arched form and overlapping one another to form the sides of the supplemental crown adapted to fit around the crown of the helmet.
2. A helmet protective device comprising a supplemental crown extending around the crown of the helmet and spaced therefrom, an arched strap extending across the interior of the supplemental crown and fitting the crown of the helmet, and means secured to the crown of the helmet with which the strap is carried into engagement.
