Description

Patented July 22, 1924.
CLOTHESPEG.
Application filed June 28,
T 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, ROBERT D. Soo'r'r, a subject of the King of Great Britain, and a resident of Powell River, in the Province of British Columbia, Canada, have invented certain new and. useful Improvements in Clothespegs, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in clothes pegs the objects of which are to pro vide means whereby the peg grips the clothes upon a line tighter as the strain on the line is increased by wind or weight of clothes, a further object being to form a more last- F ing peg than those in common use and which is not liable to damage through abuse, another object being to so design the peg that great economy of material is obtained permitting the use of material that would otherwise be considered as scrap and discarded.
The invention consists essentially of a bar having a depending fork at one end and a tongue depending from the opposite end, which fork and tongue are adapted to straddle a line and grip clothes thereto, as will be more fully described in the following specification in which Fig. 1 is a general view of my invention.
Fig. 2 is a section on the line 22.
Fig. 3 is a view showingthe application of the peg to the clothes line.
Fig. i is a view showing the manner in which blanks may be struck from sheet material.
In the drawings like characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in each figure.
The numeral 1 indicates a rigid bar or body portion which is convexed in section and is provided with a slight lateral curve. 2 indicates a vertical depending tongue convexed horizontally and terminating at its lower extremity in a rounded tip 3 to facilitate its being pressed down over the clothes line, the numeral 4 indicates a fork portion having a connector member 5 form ing a continuation of the bar 1 and a pair of depending prongs 6 and 7 respectively, which are laterally disposed parallel to each other and at a slight angle to the tongue 2,
the front of the prong 6 and the tongue 2 are convex and the front of the prong 7 is 1923. Serial No. 648,293.
peg being freely pressed over the clothes" and line without causing damage thereto. lVhile the peg as illustrated is designed to be formed from sheet material it will be readily seen that it may be made as a casting without departing from the spirit of the invention.
The numeral 10 (see Fig. 3) indicates a clothes line and 11 a sheet secured thereupon by one of the pegs.
Having thus described the several parts of my invention I will now briefly explain its use.
Clothes are thrown over the line 10 in the usual manner and are clipped thereto by placing the forked portion 4 over the clothes so that the prong 6 is behind and the prong 7 in the front of the line, the bar portion 1 is then raised and the tongue 2 pressed down behind the line until the bar 1 is in contact with the line, when the clothes and line are firmly gripped between the prong 6 and the tongue 2 on one side of the line and the prong 7 on the opposite side thereof.
It will be seen that a decided curve is formed in the line between opposite ends of the pin so that a firm grip of the clothes is attained and that as the weight or windage upon the line is increased so the gripping effectupon the clothes is also increased.
What I claim as my invention is:
The method of making a clothes peg which consists of striking a single blank having a bar portion at the end of one side of which a pair of prongs extend to define an intervening recess, a tongue extending from the side of the bar at the opposite end between which and the inner of the pair of prongs is defined a further intervening recess equal in width to the pair of prongs, their intervening recess and the tongue.
Dated at Vancouver, B. 0., this 2nd day of June, 1923.
