A. S. FELLER & A. GRUNER.

snos LACE FASTENER.

APPLICATION FILED NOV. 14. 1917.

Patented Dec. 24, 1918.

mvznrons ALBERT S. FELLER AND ADOLPH GBUNER, OF WILKINSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA.

SHOE-LACE FASTENER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 24, 1918.

Application filed November 14, 1917. Serial No. 201,916.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, ALBERT S. FELLER,

and ADOLPH GRUNER, citizens of the Republic of Switzerland, both residing at VVilkinsburg, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shoe-Lace Fasteners, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to shoe lace fasteners and has for its object to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, to enable the convenient tightening or loosening of a shoe lace, for securing or when removing a shoe from the foot.

A further object of the invention is to provide a shoe lace fastener, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, whereby the ends of the lace can be adjusted to equal length without disconnecting the lace from the shoe.

Further objects of thd invention are to provide a shoe lace fastener which is simple in its construction and arrangement, strong, durable, convenient and efficient in its use, readily secured to the upper of the shoe and comparatively inexpensive to manufacture.

With the foregoing and other objects in view the invention consists of a novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts, as hereinafter more specifically described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein is shown an embodiment of the invention, but it is to be understood that changes, variations and modifications can be resorted to which come within the scope of the claims hereunto appended.

In the drawings wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts throughout the several views:

Figure l is a perspective view of a shoe showing; the adaptation therewith of a shoe lace fastener in accordance with this invention.

Fig. 2 is a sectional detail on a portion of the upper of a shoe showing the adaptation therewith of a pair of shoe lace fasteners in accordance with this invention.

Fig. 3 is a top plan of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a section on line IVIV, Fig. 3, through the fastener.

Referring to the drawings in detail 1, denotes a sh e provided with two rows of shoe lace fasteners 9., for connecting the lace 3, in position with respect to the upper of the shoe. The fastener 3, consists of a base plate 4, having formed integral therewith, at one side thereof, an inverted L-shaped arm 5, the longitudinal leg 6, thereof being disposed parallel with the outer face of the base plate 4:. The free terminus of the longitudinal leg 6, is circular in contour as at 7. The horizontal leg of the arm 5, and the longitudinal leg 6, are inset as at 8, to provide a rounded rib to facilitate the passage of the lace and to reduce the wearing of the lace to a minimum.

Interposed between the longitudinal leg 6, and the base plate 4:, is an anti-friction roller 9, which is. concavo-convex in longitudinal, section. Secured to the large end 7, of the leg 6, and to the base plate 4:, is a shaft 10, upon which the roller 9, revolves.

The anti-friction roller 9, in connection with the horizontal leg of the arm 5, forms an eye or passage 11, for the lace 2.

Formed integral with the base plate 1, is a series of clamping prongs 12, which are adapted to extend through the upper 13 and be clenched as at 14, to the inner face of the upper 13, whereby the fastener is securely coupled in position.

Owing to the employment of the rollers 9, the lace can be conveniently tightened to secure the shoe in position on the foot and likewise can be conveniently loosened without detaching the lace from the fasteners, when it is desired to remove the shoe from the foot.

The rib 8, and anti-friction roller 9, reduce the wear of'the lace to a minimum, under such conditions the life of the lace is materially increased when using the form of fastener shown instead of the eyes now generally employed.

The fasteners further permit of the con venient adjusting of the ends of the lace to equal length without the necessity of detaching a portion of the lace as is the case when the ordinary way is employed.

What we claim is:

A shoe lace fastener comprising a base plate having clamping barbs, an inverted L-shaped arm having its short leg integral with the outer side of said base plate and its long leg disposed parallel to said plate,

said arm having each of its legs pro- In testimony whereof We afiix our signavlded With an 1nset portlon forming an lntures in the presence of tWo wltnesses. Wardly arranged convexo-concave rib, an kLBERT S FELLER anti-friction roller loosely journaled be- ADOLPH GRUNER tween said long leg and plate, and said rib opposing said roller and the upper face of Witnesses: the plate to facilitate the passage of the MAX H. SRoLovITz lace. ELLA J. LETZKUS.
