HANDLE GRIP.

Application filed December 2, 1920. Serial No. 427,818.

It is an object of the invention to provide a new and improved handle which may be grasped firmly and easily held without turning or slipping.

A further object is to provide a durable cover of simple, economical construction, which is adapted to be placed on the handles of golf clubs, baseball bats, tennis rackets, fishing rods or any instrument or device whereby a non-slipping grip may be easily maintained, and to thus provide an instrument which may be used with great accuracy and precision.

A further-,object is to provide a handle which will embody an accomplishment of the above objects and which may be used without injury or discomfort to the hands.

An important object is to provide a rub-l ber cover for handles comprising an integral body having an outer wearing portion of vulcanized rubber and an inner sticky plast-ic portion whereby the same may be adhesively secured to the handles of golf clubs and the like and to provide means whereby said plastic portion will be protected in storage orV transit and preserved in a plastic state until ready for use.

The above objects are accomplished and additional ends are attained by the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts herein described and illustrated in the accompanying drawin which forms a part hereof and in which have shown a preferred embodiment of the invention, it being understood that the invention is capable of various adaptations and that variations` in form ormaterial may be made or substitutions resorted to which come within the scope of the claims hereunto appended.

In' the drawing, in which similar characters of reference are employed to designate p corresponding parts throughout the several equipped with a non-slipping handle grip constructed in accordance with this inven.

tion.

of the end portion of a handle constructed in accordance with this invention taken as indicated by the lines 3-3 of Figure 4.

Figure 4 is a side elevation of a handle equipped with my improved grip.

igure 5 is a transverse sectional view of the grip employed in carrying out the invention taken as indicated by the lines 5--5 of Figure 2.

In the accompanying drawing, I have shown the invention as applied to a golf club to which an embodiment thereof may be used to a great advantage. The numeral 5 is used generally to denote an ordinary wooden handle and the numeral 6 indicates a layer of rubberized textile fabric orother relatively inextensible, non-absorbent material which is Wound around the handle under tension and cemented thereto so as to form a relatively inelastic base. The numeral 7 indicates my improved grip strip which is wound spirally around the handle 5 upon the plastic portion 9 which is an integral part of the Strip 7 and extends over the entire attaching face thereof. The numeral l0 1s used to denote a protective strip of muslin or other relative non-adhesive material with which the plastic surface 9 is covered. The non-adhesive strip or lining 10 serves t o protect the attaching surface 9, preserves 1t in a plastic state, and provides a more convenient and more attractive product. The strip. 7 `may be wound around the base 6 with lts edges in parallel spaced relat1on, as shown in Figure 3, thus providing a helically d1sposed roove 11. u

My improved grip may be attached d 1- rectly to the handle by means of the plastic face 9 or the handle may be first coated with rubber cement or other suitable adhesive. I

prefer first to wind the rubber impregnated strips 6 about the handle to produce a grip ont the desired size, and to coat the base layer 6 thus formed with rubber cement. rllhe linliti ing strip 10 is removed from the perforated strip 7 and the same is Wound spirally.

Y is consequently water-proof and non-absorbmatic or weather conditions.

,effective non-slipping grip.

ent and the rubber cement or other adhesive used to attached the same to the handle cannot be edected by moisture and a lasting union is secured between the cover 7 and the base 6. A

When taken in a irm grasp, portions of the hand kdirectly over each opening 8 will bulge slightly therein and contact with the edges thereof,I thus providin an extremely lhe openings 8 are closed at the bottom byv means of the rubberized material 6, thus forming a plurality of cups out of which a portion of the air is forced when a grip is seized by the hand and a partial vacuum is created therein which aids materially in preventing `an unintentional turning or slipping movement of an instrument equipped in accordance with my invention.

In actual use, on a golf club, it has been found that the non-slipping qualities of my improved grip are not effected by moisture or by changes in temperature and that a club equipped as herein set vforth may be used to great advantage regardless of cli-'- In contrast with ordinary grips, I have provided a grip which when placed on the handle of a olf club will permit the same to be used w en Wet or with wet hands, without danger of slipping. and` I have therefore provided means whereby -a club'so equipped may be intacte used with great accuracy and precision even under the most unfavorable conditions.

ylVl/'hile I have shown and described the strip 7 as provided with a plurality of circular openings, it is to be understood that the same may be formed of any desired shape and while I have provided a non-absorbent relatively, inextensible base the strip 7 may-be used without said base and attached by means of its plastic face directly to the handle.

Having thus described my invention what ll claim as new and desire to secure by lietters Patent is l. A non-slipping cover for golf club grips and the like comprising a flat strip of elastic material provided on the attaching face thereof with an integrally formed backing of plastic elastic material, said strip provided throughout its length with a plurality of regularly recurringV openings.

2. A non-slipping coverl for golf club grips, comprising, a flat strip of rubber adapted to be-fwound spirally therearound, said strip including a wearin portion of vulcanized rubber and an attac ing portion of sticky unvulcanized rubber.

3. A non-slipping cover for goli club grips, comprising a flat strip of rubber adapted to be wound spirally thereabout, said strip including a wearing portion of vulcanized rubber and an attaching portion of plastic, sticky, unvulcanized rubber and removable means to protect and preserve said attaching portion until ready for use.

4. A non-sllpping grip for golf clubs com` prising a flat strip of rubber adapted to be wound spirally thereabout, said strip including main body portion of vulcanized rubber and an attaching portion of unvulcanized rubber, said strip provided throughout its length with a plurality of spaced, regularly recurring lopenings which extend through both the wearing portion and the attaching portion and removable means to protect and preserve said portion until ready for use.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set m hand.
