NITE'D TATES PATENT OFFICE.

GEORGE GASCHKE, or NEWARK, NEW annsnxnssieNon To A ERICAN PLATINUM WORKS, or NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, A CORPORATION on NEW JERSEY.

LINGERIE CLASP;

Application filed June 1, 1922. Serial No. 565,158.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE GAsoI-IKE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Newark, county of Essex, and State of New 5 Jersey, have invented new and useful Improvements in Lingerie Clasps, of which the following is a specification. I

This invention relates specifically to or namental devices as used by women for maintaining their more intimate upper garments in adjusted position, such wearing apparel being provided with narrow straps, ribbons, tapes and the like, which require a confining or clamping means to hold them in place, particularly on the shoulders.

Included in the objects of the invention is the provision of a device for the foregoing purpose that is essentially simple, cheap and strong, being wholly made from a single piece of material, thus dispensing with soldered or riveted joints, loose or separable parts and the like, which are prolific sources of annoyance and failur Another aim is to produce a pin of unusual. efficiency in gripping without distortion and which is easily attached or disengaged from the material it is employed upon, without damage to the same in any manner.

These and other allied objects, that will become manifest in the course of the description, are attained by the novel design, construction and arrangement of parts hereafter set forth and shown in the accompany-- ing drawing, forming a material part of this disclosure, and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the preferred embodiment of the invention in an open position,

Figure 2 is a side view of the same in a closed position.

Figure 3 is a similar view of the same illustrating the application of the pin.

Figure 4: is a greatly enlarged transverse sectional view taken on line of Fig. 2.

Figure 5 is a side view showing a modified form of construction.

Figure 6 is an underside plan view of the same, the tongue portion being broken away to disclose the construction.

Figure 7 is a side View illustrating a further modification in the pin, partially in section.

Figure 8 is a plan view of the same.

Figure 9is an end View thereof drawn to an increased scale.

It is to be noted thatthe term pin is used generically, as a trade name and that the device is actually a clamp for maintaining strips of material in a closely confined relation without puncturing or perforating the same.

Any suitable resilient material may be used, preference being given to the precious or semiprecious metals, or to those capable of being press ornamented, plated and polished or colored as fancy may dictate.

lVhile a channelled cross section has been shown as most desirable, giving the effect of strength and rigidity, combined with lightness in weight, and also an effective gripping surface, such section is not actually essential and does not preclude the use of plain flat bar material in the construction of the pin.

Referring in detail to the drawing, the numeral 10 designates the front bar of the pin, which may be bowed slightly outward, as shown in Figs. 1 to 6 or straight its outer surface being ornamented and finished in any preferred manner.

The strip may be rolled or pressed to produce ribs 11 on the inner side edges of the bar, standing distinctly above the central surface 12 from end to end.

One end of the bar is coiled to produce an open circular bight or ring-like roll 13 the extreme end edge being in close relation to the inner side of the bar, enclosing a space 14 and formed through the wall of the loop, on the side facing the opposite end of the bar, is an opening 15 leading to the space 14:.

The other end of the bar is bent semi-circularly, as at 16, to a radius approximately the same as the roll or loop 13, the continuing portion .17 being bent to form an angle .18 closely approaching the bar 10 at the center of the pin at the point 19 and then at an opposite angle 20 to the extension 21, disposed in the plane of the element 1. and terminates in a converging angular point 22 so disposed as to engage in the opening 15 when the spring tongue, constituted by the elements 17 to 22, is pressed towards the bar .10, and any material as the strips 23 and 24, as shown in Fig. 3, are tightly held therebetween.

Thus a snap fastening for the pin is obtained, easily secured and. as readily released upon merely springing the loo 13 outwardly by contact with the fingers.

A considerable number of strips may be firmly held, the angular portions of the tongue tending to straighten out and thus become elongated, rendering the fastening or clamping effect secure against accidental displacement.

In the modifications shown in Figs. 5 and 6 th bar is bent to a semi-circle 26 to produce a straight tongue 27 having an angular point 28. I

The opposite end of the bar is coiled to form a loop 29 having anopening 30 receptive of the tongue point 28, then reduced in width and extended, as at 3 1, to form a spring element comprised of the angles 32 and 34, the end of the latter resting on the inner side of the bar 25 and the raised portion or apex 38 of the angular elements disposed in the plane of the lower side of the tongue 27 when the latter is in an engaged position.

The bar 35, as shown in .7 to'9,'has a central recess 36 at one .end, the prongs 37 being bent or looped over the bar and are integrally connected by a transverse member 38.

The other end ofthe bar is formed with a band 39 from which extends a spring tongue 40 having undulations 4:1 reaching towards the bar and is formed with a narrowed portion 42 having an inreaching hook 43 at its extremity adapted to pass between the prongs 37 and engage the outer surface of the bar 35 when the tongue is rasaeea forcibly pressed thus locking the tongue and clamping any fiat material entered between the bar 35 and undulations 41.

In this type release is obtained by pres ing the hook 4:3 outwardly, allowing the resilience of the tongueto separate the engaging elements in an obvious manner.

While certain preferred embodiments of this device have been shown and described, it will be understood that changes in the form, arrangements, proportions, sizes and details thereof may be made without departing from the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

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

1. A lingerie pin comprising a unitary bar having longitudinal ribs on one of its surfaces, extending coincident with the length bent to present substantially parallel elements, and co-operative means at one of the ends of said elements whereby they may be detachably engaged.

2. A lingerie pin comprising aunitary resilient bar of channel cross section bent to present aroll at one end and an overlying tongue .at the other, one or more undula tions formed in said tongue, and means formed in said roll adapted to engage the free end of said tongue.

This specification signed and witnessed this 16th-day of May, 1922.

. GEORGE GASCHKE. Witnesses O. L. CHERL, G. HAWKINS.
