FURNITURE GUARD FOR CARPET SWEEPERS.

Application filed October 28, i924. Serial No. 746,444.

Zo all 'whom it may concern:

Be it known that l, KITTY L. HALE, a citizen of the United States, residing at San Francisco, in the county of San Francisco and State of California, have invented new and useful Furniture Guards for Carpet Sweepers, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to furniture guards for carpet sweepers.

The object of the invention is to provide a simple andreilicient guard for modern hand carpet sweepers which may be readily applied and removed and when in use will effectively protect the furniture against knocks and bruises.

Another object is to so construct a guard of this character that it maybe cheaply and easily replaced when worn.

With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed may be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the accompanying drawings2- Figure 1 represents a plan view of the guard constitutingl this invention shown with the fastening devices removed and the guard stretched out flat; and

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the guard shown in position ready to be applied to a sweeper.

The guard constituting this invention comprises a strip of heavy fabric preferably Brussels carpet or any other material as shown at 1 and which is of a length to e2:- tend around the perimeter of a sweeper and which is adjustable to adapt it to fit sweepers of different sizes. This strip l is shown bound along its edges at 2 with tape or any suitable material and is equipped at its ends with a plurality of transversely spaced eyelets 3, any desired number of which may be employed, three being here shown at each end and those in one end registering with those in the other and adapted to receive a cord 8 which is threaded through these eyelets to adj ustably and removably mount the guard on the sweeper.

At suitable locations on the strip l near its upper edge are arranged longitudinally spaced pairs of eyelets -l-, four of these pairs being shown which are designed to be located at the respective cornersl of the s0 sweeper and to receive tapes or cords 5 adapted to draw the strip together at its upper edge to shape it to conform to the shape of the sweeper. Similar pairs of eyelets 6 are loca-ted adjacent the lower edge e5 of the strip 1, the eyelets (3 of each pair being arranged closer together than those of the pairs et as is shown clearly in Fig. l and these eyelets are designed to receive tapes or cords 7 designed to draw the strip 7o in the proper shape and also to connect the guard to the sweeper, said tapes 7 being preferably passed around and tied to the guard which is found on some types of sweeper sold on the market.

This strip l is of a width corresponding to the height or thickness of the sweeper in connection with which it is to be used so that it will extend well up over the sweeper and protect the corners thereof to prevent them from contacting with and marring furniture. This strip also protects the front and rear faces as well as the ends of the sweeper from coming in contact with articles of furniture.

From the above description it will be obvious that a guard of this character constructed as herein shown and described may be very cheaply made and easily applied and removed when desired. To remove it all 9o that is necessary is to unlace the cord 8 and untie the tapes 7 which are passed around the guard found on the sweeper as sold after they have been passed through the eyelets 6.

I claim l. A carpet sweeper guard comprising a strip of suitable material having pairs of eyelets at its upper and lower edges located to correspond with the corners of a carpet sweeper to which the device is to be applied, cords passed through the eyelets of each pair and adapted to shape the strip to fit the perimeter of a carpet sweeper, the ends of the strip being equipped with spaced eyelets arranged transversely of the strip to receive a lacing cord.

2. A carpet sweeper guard comprising a strip of suitable material having pairs of eyelets at its upper and lower edges located lets arranged transversely of thestriptore-` ceive a lacing cord7 the eyelets ofthe upper pairs being spaced furtherl apart than those of the lower pairs to provide for the shaping-ol the strip to fit the carpetA sweeper.

3. A furniture protector for carpet sweeperscomprising a fabric strip of a length 'to extend around the circumference of a carpet sweeper, and provided'at each end with a series of eyeletsv arranged transversely of the strip7 a series of pairs of eyelets arranged adjacent each side edge oit said strip, the eyelets ci the pairs of one series being closer together than those of the other series,

said pairs of eyelets being located at the respect-ive corners oli thejsweeper when the protector is applied, tapes extending through the eyelets of each. pair to draw the strip together and shape it to lit the sweeper, eertain of sfvid'tapesY being substantially larger than is necessary to draw parts of the strip together said tapes being attac-,hable to a guarden the sweeper to hold the protector in adjusted position. i

ln testimony that I elainl the foregoing as niy own, l'lnive hereto aflixed my signature.

KITTY L. HALE.
