Description

vet, 9 19240 v 1,513,237 D. H. GREEN SIGNAL Filed Jan. 9. 1923 INVENTOR. Dar/a 6mm A TTORNEY Patented Get. 28, 124.

ET STS DAVID E. GREEN, SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA.

SIGNAL.

Application filed January 9, 1928. Serial To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, DAVID H.-GREEN, a citizen of the United States, residing at San Francisco, in the county of San Francisco and State of California, have invented a new and useful Signal,"of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in signals, and in particular, to that type of 1 signal adapted chiefl for the use of the automobilist, in signi ying his intentions to other drivers and pedestrians as to his direction of'travel, or intention to slow down or stop. The present most approved and preferred method of such signalling, is to extend the arm at various angles in a vertical plane, the angle determining the signal.

Although many mechanical, electrical and other devices are on the market that will perform the equivalent signals, they appear to be unpopular and not favorably accepted by the driving public. From this, I conclude, that the human arm signal will always rank foremost, therefore, I have con fined my improvement to operate in conjunction with the human arm, the object being to enhance and emphasize the arm signals given. This I accomplish, by providing a 30 hand-covering or glove for 'the hand of the signal arm, and made in conformance to my invention.

Another object is, the production ofsuch a signal adaptable for use by traflic ofiicers and others, who give motion and direction signals.

A further object is to render night signalling more discernible, and consequent- 1y more eifective, by incorporating in my invention light-reflecting crystals or brilliants.

The accompanying sheet of drawings forming part. of this specification illustrates my invention, and in which: v

Figure 1 is a front view of it made for a lefthand, and, as viewed from behind the signal arm. I Figure 2 is a side view of it.-

Lht?

liant and the manner of attaching the same i to the glove.

Referring to the various figures: The numeral 1 represents the hand of the arm 2, and upon which is the hand-covering or glove denoted in its entirety by 3, and

fastened on the hand in the usual way.

The glove may be composed of any suitable flexible material used for such purposes, such as soft leather, and made up. of

alternate strips 4 and 5 of white and black material respectively, or of other contrasting colors. The glove proper may be a unit of one material, and the black stripes 5 may be bands sewed thereon.

I prefer to construct the glove thumbless, as shown, to allow full and free hand movement for the steering wheel. o

To the back of the glove and arranged in any efiective order, I attach, preferably by sewin as seen at 6 in Fig. 5, mounted crysta s or brilliants 7. These brilliants are usually of glass, having many facets andw ruby tinted in structure. At 9, the underside of the brilliant is silvered for light reflecting purposes, and secured in any preferred mountlng 10. I

The brilliants 7 may be of the same design throughout, but of difierent sizes and in the nature of buttons, the fingers requiring the smaller sizes.

In operation, a driver desiring to signal, extends his arm as heretofore, and the black and white stripes of my invention visibly accentuates the iven signals day or night, and the attached brilliants, positioned and 0 moving at different angles, receive light rays both day andnight from various sources and reflect the same in all directions. Owing to the numerous facets, reflections of varyin intensities will always be discernible, an this is especially-trueat night. The red giitterings from my signal being the refleotioiie out the light mys from the head tights of an approaching vehicle tothe i'eeixv White I have thus described the preferred 5 form of my invention I Wish to have it uiidlerstoooi that slight changes may be made Within the eeope of the claim hereto ettecheot Without efie'etiug the spirit of the inventioiiu I eieim:

A trefie signeL eomprising e tiiumbiese glove having White and black cross-stripes positioned alternately on the entire bee; thereof and the same studded with eoioi'eoi briliizmts for the purpose set forth.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature DAVID H,
