Application filed October 18, 1920. Serial no. 417,588.

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, CHARLES A. HUM- rrrnnrs, a citizen of the-United $tates, resid ving at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State oflllinois, have invented a 'certaln new and useful Improvement in Tips for Belts and Straps, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to tips or end pieces for belting, particularly leather straps for mens wear. The general object of the in,- vention is to provide a piecewhich will be neat and compact in distinction to being bulky, and which may be easily and firmly fastened to the belt. Another object is to provide a device of this character which may be readily formed from asingle piece of sheet metal.

illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in .L 1 1 a \V11lCl1 Figure 1 is a face view of a blank, prior 7 Figure 7 is an edge View of the device,

shown in position in a belt and illustrating the manner in which it may be hooked to a gripping device or buckle. V

Figure 8 is a perspective view of the end of a solid belt, split at the end for the insertion of. the plate or body of the end piece.

Like numerals denote like parts through out the several views.

Referring first to the blank shown in Figure 1, this is simply a short, rectangular strip of sheet metal ready for cutting or punching. After the blank is obtained, it is first punched or cut as illustrated in Figure 2. The plate portion 1 has its corners 2 cut in order to obtain what may be termed.

a rounded effect. At the same time a hole 3 is punched in the plate to accommodate a rivet or other appropriate fastening device. With the same operation, two cuts 4 are made, their shape being such as to form Specification of Letters Patent.

two inward turned branchesG on opposite sides of neck 5. The next operation is to form the device, and in the forming operation, the cut blank is-bent in'suchmanner that the branches 6 are raised or effect so as to lie near to butspaced from the outside of the belt, to form hooks facinginwa rd along the belt. A second bend 8 ,is' formed at the end of the blank, but this bendsin the opposite direction and by preference lies contiguous to the surface of the belt; it extends the full width of the blank, which in practice equals substantially the full width of the belt. The result is that the bend 8 forms a ferrule or finishing strip for protecting the end'of the belt and holding the engaged portion down close upon the Y. body or tongue portion 1 of the blank," I obtain my objects by the construction 7 of double thickness but with the two thicknesses lying flat in contact with each other,

illustrated'in' Figure 7. Also the device may be used with'so-called solid belts'consisting of a single piece16 of leather as shown in F ignre 8. In such case the end of the belt will be split as illustrated. Also the device may be .used with so-ealled lined and stitched belts which are simply belts of-two or more ply, lined or unlined, and stitched together. These various types are well known in the trade. Inanytevent, the end of the belt will be of more than one thickness and, in assembling, the ends of the body portion'or plate 1 of the blank is simpl inserted into the open end of the belt. is inserted far enough to bring the ferrule portion 8 close to the end of the belt to form a protection and finishing piece for it, and

when thus assembled a rivet 12 or otherappropriate fastener is passed through the belt and through'the aperture 3 in the plate, thus holding the parts securely together. As the plate or body of the device is, or should be, fully equal to the inner dimension of the belt, a single rivet will be suificient, lateral play of the device being prevented by the belt itself. In other words, the plate 1 fits snugly into the belt and will be securely fastened as soon asthe' rivet is in place.

The hooks 6 lie adjacent to, but slightly spaced from, the side of the belt opposite to the ferrule 8 and as the tops of the hooks 6 preferably bend slightly upward as illus trated, a bail 14: on any desired form. of belt engaging means 15 may be readily hooked into engagement.

It will be evident that this device is of extremely simple form and is most readily manufactured. Also that it may be securely held in place and prevented from moving in anydirection when a single fastening device such as the rivet 12 is employed. It will also be evident that a belt employing this'device will present a very neat appearance, for the reason that the belt is not bent backward upon itself in any way, nor is any stitching required; the body of the device is simply inserted into the open end of the belt and the thickness of the belt is not increased to any appreciable degree. The ferrule 8 extending as it does across the entire width of the belt, forms perfect protection for the lower or inner side of the belt, while the hooks or branches 6 which occupy a considerable proportion of the entire width of the device, perform the same office for the upper side of the belt, and at the same time, form points of attachment for the belt fastener which is typified in the drawings by the device 15. Thus, by using my device, the expense of manufacture is greatly reduced, the appearance of the belt is greatly improved, its wearing qualities are improved by reason of the protection which the device affords to the end of the belt, and the fastening device such as 15, may be readily connected and disconnected.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Let ters Patent is:

1. A device of the class described having a plate for insertion between the two sides of the belt, integral hooks partially severed from the plate and extending backward approximately parallel to said plate and reoasie adapted to lie onthe outside of the belt and spaced from it, the outer end of the device being bent in the opposite direction to form a ferrule for the opposite side of the belt.

2. An end piece for tubular belts having a plate for insertion between the two sides of the belt, a neck surmounting the plate,

and a head supported by the neck, the head having hooks at the two edges oft-he neck extending backward approximately parallel to the neck on one side of it and the head having a ferrule bent backwards approximately parallel to the neck on the other side of it to form a ferrule for its side of the belt.

8. A cut sheet metal blank adapted to form the end piece for a belt, the blank having a plate with two inward extending branches cut from opposite edges, the branches terminating short of the outer end of the plate to thereby atl'ord material which may be reflexed to form a ferrule extending substantially the full width of the belt.

4. A device of the class described composed of a single piece of sheet metal out and configurated to form a plate at one end adapted to be inserted between two thicknesses at the end of a belt,v said plate being adapted to be attached to the belt and being approximately of the full width of the belt, the outer end of the sheet metal having a return bend adapted to form a ferrule for enclosing and protecting one thickness of the belt at one end thereof, and two reversed branches at the lateral edges of the plate, spaced from each other, and bent'to form hooks, substantially as described.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto subscribed my name.
