' P. CHRISTIAN HAIRPIN Filed Nov. '7, 1923' "MMVMWW WWW awe-mega Patented Sept. 9, 1924-.
UNITED STATES PHILIP CHRISTIAN, or BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT.
HAIRPIN.
Application filed November To all whom it may concern.
Be it known that PHILIP CHRISTIAN, a citizen of the United States, and resident of Bridgeport, in the county of Fairfield and State of Connecticut, has invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hairpins, of which the following is a specification.
The present invention relates to an improved hair pin, formed of a single length of wire, an object of the invention being to provide a hair pin which will effectually retain the hair in the position in which it is dressed or arranged by the wearer, and will at the same time be self-retaining, so that any chance of its becoming loose or dropping out is eliminated. To this end it is proposed to provide a hair pin adapted to clamp itself about a lock of hair, after it is inserted over the same, in such manner as to prevent disengagement of the hair or retrograde movement of the hair pin.
l/Vith the above and other objects in View, an embodiment of the invention is shown in the accompanying drawings, and this embodiment will be hereinafter more fully described with reference thereto, and the invention will be finally pointed out in the claim.
In the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a front elevation of a hair pin, according to the present embodiment of the invention Fig. 2 is a side view thereof;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view showing the pin being engaged with a lock of hair, the side legs of the pin being expanded; and
Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing the pin as clampingly engaged about the hair.
Similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several figures of the drawings.
Referring to the drawings, the hair pin, according to the present embodiment of the invention, comprises a single length of wire bent upon itself at its center, and twisted, as at 10, in spaced relation to the bight, to form a central relatively short leg portion 11, the ends of the wire being bent downwardly at each side of the leg portion 11, to form main leg portions 12 and 18, of relatively greater length than the leg portion 11.
At the portions of the main legs laterally adjacent the central leg portion 11, the same are provided with inwardly bent or ofi'set portions 1& and 15, respectively,
7, 1923.. Serial No. 673,267.
thereby forming restricted passages 16 at each sideof the portion 11, and hair receiving spaces 17 between the closed end of the pin and said offset portions of rela tively greater width than the passages. The central leg portion and the offset portions being substantially parallel, shoulders 18 and 19 are produced at the junction of the upper ends of the passages 16 and the lower ends of the spaces 17, and preferably the portions of the main legs above these shoulders converge slightly toward the upper or closed end of the pin.
In use, the pin is forced in embracing relation over a mass of the hair, as shown in Fig. 3, and as the hair is parted by the central leg portion and passes at each side through the passages 16, the legs are sprung outwardly, resuming their contracted position as the hair is forced through the passages and into the spaces 17, where it spreads out from the compressed state in which it passes through the passages, and through abutment with the shoulders 18 and 19 is effectually held in place. Atthe same time the pin is retained by the hair in such manner that any possibility of accidental slippage'or loss is prevented.
The central leg portion is flat, so that it will pass through the hair with a minimum of resistance, and without danger of breaking or tangling the same. The pin may be economically manufactured, and is preferably formed from a spring wire of suitable natural color, or coated by japanning, or
the like.
I have illustrated and described a preferred and satisfactory embodiment of the invention, but it will be obvious that changes may be made therein, within the spirit and scope thereof, as defined in the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
A hair pin formed from a single piece of wire and including a closed end portion, a central relatively short leg portion extending downwardly from said end portion and formed by doubling the wire centrally and twisting the same adjacent said end portion, the side edges of said leg portion being straight and parallel with each other, side legs bent downwardly at each side of said end portion and in spaced relation to said central leg portion, said side portions being bent inwardly at each side of said central leg portion and parallel thereto and in spaced relation to said closed end portion, and forming shoulders in spaced relation to said closed end portion to produce relatively large hair receiving spaces in the closed end of said pin at each side of said central leg portion, said inwardly bent portions forming relatively long restricted passages below said shoulders at each side of said central leg portion to said relatively large hair receiving spaces,
whereby the side legs are spread and contracted as the hair is passed through said passages into said relatively large hair receiving spaces.
Signed at Bridgeport, in the county of Fairfield and State of Connecticut, this 6th day of November, A. D. 1923.
PHILIP CHRISTIAN.
