' ikfiplication filed April 30, ms. Serial in. 231,724.
To all'whom izmayeomeam 7 v 4 Be it known that I, CLAY M. CON-LEE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Modesto, in the county of Stanislaus, State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Clothespins; 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.
The invention relates to aclothes pin, and more particularly to the class of resilient wire clothes pins.
The primary object of the invention is the provision of a clothes pin of this character in which the jaws will be adapted to grip, resiliently, clothing and a clothes line therebetween.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a clothes pin of this character which can be readily manipulated and which may be constructed from a single piece of resilient relatively stiff wire.
A further object of the invention is the provision of a clothes pin of this character which is extremely simple in construction, thoroughly reliable and efficient in its operaand inexpensive to manufacture.
Vith these and other objects in view the invention consists in the features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts, as will be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and pointed out in the claim hereunto appended.
In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a side elevation of the clothes pin constructed in accordance with the invention;
Fig. 2 is a perspective view thereof;
Fig. 3 is an end elevation;
Fig. 4 is a sectional view on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1 looking in the direction of the arrow.
Similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views in the drawing.
Referring to the drawing in detail, the clothes pin is formed from a single length of comparatively stiff resilient wire A bent on itself and formed between the ends of the resultant parallel stretches to provide a double spring coil 5 and opposite arms 6,
*one of the arms being extended to form' a straight jaw 7 and the other arm being bent on itself at right angles and the stretches of the wire separated to provide a guide loop 8 through which the jaw 7 is engaged. Beyond the loop 8, the wire is formed into divergent fingers 9 constituting a companion jaw for said jaw 7 cooperating therewith so as to grip a clothes line. These aws 9 are given greater strength by doubling the end portions selves as shown, and the free ends 17 of the wire are each folded about the portions of the wire which spring directly from the loop 8, the fingers 9 being thus locked together soas to maintain the loop.
The jaw 7 at a point spaced from its end is formed with a bight 1 0 constitutin a notch or seat 11 for the clothes line while tile lingers 9 are bent at points spaced from their ends to form an abutment or shoulder 12 for said clothes line to .hold the line within the bight 10. The outer or free ends of the jaw 7 and fingers 9 constituting the companion jaw are curved outwardly to provide flared extremities 13 to permit the easy insertion of the clothes line between the jaws.
The arms 6 are formed with finger engaging portions '14 which are formed by bending the stretches of the wire outwardly into substantially V shape and at opposite sides of one of these portions 14 the stretches of the wire are twisted as at 15 while at one side of the other portion 14 the wire is twisted at 16 thereby reinforcing and strengthening the arms.
The spring coil 5 will tension the jaw 7 and the jaw formed by the fingers 9 to hold these jaws normally together and will exert the required pressure thereon for the firm and secure fastening of clothes upon a line. When the portions 14 are pressed toward each other the aws Wlll separate to permit the easy removal of the clothes pin from the line.
What is claimed is A clothes pin consisting of a doubled length of wire, the stretches thereof being formed between their ends to produce a spring coil in each, the stretches of the wire between the said spring coils and their connected ends constituting one jaw, the said stretches of the wire beyond the said coils from their connected endsextending parallel with the jaw for a distance and then ex- V tending alt-right angles anc1-being epamtd 3 and again brought together coform 21, 100p through which the saidjawis engaged,,the V stretches of thewire beybnd'the 100D 'eXt'end- .ing in divergentirelation and being fplded upon themselves to bring the free extre'i i i Witnesses:
@tiels pf the wire adjgcen'ptorthe loep, said ifree extrjeniities bein'g folded 'abolit both" T 1 v stretqhes of the Wire te p event separation pei iiioiig ate t he point at 10 Which they spring from the loop.
In testimony whereof, I aflix my signatur'e, in 'thepresence of two Witnesses.
