CLOTHES-PIN.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. 11, 1919.
Application filed August 20, 1917. Serial No. 187,197.
To all whom it may concern 7 Be it known that I, WILLIAM C. NEAL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Abilene, in the county of Taylor, State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Clothes-Pins; and I do hereby 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 improvements in clothes pins.
Qne object of the present invention is to provide a clothes pin of the pivoted jaw type but formed from a single length of stiff wire.
Another object of the present invention is to so construct a device of this character from a single piece of wire that the jaws, handles and intermediate coil thereof will all be formed from the same piece.
A further object is to so construct the device that the proper fulcrum and leverage will be produced without the necessity of pivots.
Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing. V
In the drawing:
Figure '1 is a side elevation ofa clothes pin made in accordance with my invention.
Fig. 2 is an end view of the same.
Fig. 3 is a top plan view of'the device.
Fig. 4 is a sectional view taken on the line 4-4 of Fig. 3.
Referring particularly to the accompanyextending coil the ends of which are represented respectively at 11 and 12. The por- .tion' 11 is extended longitudinally beneath and at one side of the coil and is bent to form the loop 13, the portions of the wire ranged in parallel relation to the coil. After forming the second of the loops 14 the wire is extended in parallel relation to the coil and at the other end of the coil it is extended upwardly and thence downwardly to form the upwardly fiaging handle member 15, the terminal of the wire being continued downwardly past the portions which are parallel to the coil.
The other end of the coil is similarly bent to form the loops 13 and 14 and the flaring handle loop 15. The loops 13 are outwardly bowed, as clearly seen in Fig. 2, and form the clothes line embracing jaws ,Of the clothes pin.
It will thus be seen that when the handle portions 15 are pressed toward each other the lower ends of the leg portions thereof will bear against the sides of the coil and act as fulcrums whereby the jaw portions will be spread apart so that the clothes line may readily be inserted therebetween. When the handles are released the resiliency of the leg portions and of the coil will serve'to restore the parts to normal position with the jaws in firm gripping engagement with the clothes line.
What is claimed is:
A wire clothes pin formed from a single length of wire bent to form a plurality of helical coils, the opposite ends of the coils being bent to extend in parallel relation to low said coils, said ends being bent to form clothes gripping loops extending downwardly from the coils and then transversely of the device in close parallel relation to the first parallel members, the said ends being then extended upwardly above the coils and formed into larger finger gripping handles, the remaining portions of the ends extending across the parallel portions at right angles.
each other and to the series of coils and be- In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
