`The invention relatesl to skate strap fas-V teners, whereby ankle straps, or other straps,l

may be secured toE ice skates/and particularly to ice skates having shoes attached. Y The invention has among its various objects, the provision of an extremely simple and inexpensive construction which has Vthe required strength and; other qualifications necessary in a de vice of this character, which will protect theV strap against wear or Iinjury, and which will eliminatethe necessity of securing the strap directly to the shoe, which method is practiced to a Considerable extent in ice skates having shoes attached, and particularly of the hockey and Vrink types. l c l It is an additional object of the invention to provide a construction wliichenablG/Sthe use of the samey style of shoe for either the racing type of skate, employing a long thin runner blade, extendingl beyond thetoe, and the hockey or rink typel ofY skate, employing a shorter runner which is bent upand meets the toe. The general practice of skaters fis to employ ankle straps with the hockey and rink type of skates, and asl stated, Athese straps are generallyv secured directly to the shoe. Ankle straps are not generally einployed with shoes which areV used 'in connection with the racing type of skates. It will therefore be understood the invention a manufacturer or dealerfdo'es not need to carry in stock two types of shoes for use in connection with different typesoff' skates.

The invention has an additional object the provision of a fastener which may be attached to the skate -and shoe either Aprior .or

subsequent to the association of the skatel and the shoe, and which will provid'ea lconnection for ,the stra-p which permits the rer placement-ofa strap without necessitating the removal of the fastener from its associa-V tion with the skate rand shoe.-

lt is another ob'ect of the invention to providea ,fastener whichis capable of ,as-

sociation with the skate without necessitat-` ing the removal ofthe shoefroin the skate,

in addition, it-

an object Ito 'provide' a device of this character which will permit of movement between 'it and the skater/and slapel to compensa-te 'for various movements er the roety et the ,sl-:atei: 'while that by use 'of ing' which will -thereby add to comfort skater. y v

It is a further object 'toprovide 'a fas-k tener which is more or less flexible so that it may be arrangedv 'to conform tothe -side of the s hoje, and, in addition, may be bent'and positioned so that it will be 'readily vaccessible to permit the repair or replacement of a worn vor defective strap Without necessi.- u

tating'the'remova'l of the fastener yfromy its association with the skate 'and shove. l Y l y It is 'a feature'of the invention to 'provide a fastener "which `may "beA sold separately from the strap 'or skate and shoe, and which Y will permit of its v"a,sso'ciationwith Aa 4skate and `shoe not previouslysupplied with a fastener'. l L l In addition, it is an objectto provide 'a fastener capable 'of being attached to the strap `so thatit and the strap may be sold as a unit and be used to replace a worn 'or de-l fective strap, or be `employed for a' skate and shoe not previously provided witha strap having the above named features of advantate.

It yis a further object ofthe invention to construct a' fastener, 'such as has been 'referred to above, of two parts, each part thereof having one. part of the ankle `strap secured to it, and, lto also construct the fas?l tener of a single piece of material, whereby bothportions of an ankle strap may be securedto ythe skate and shoe.

It is a further object-'of the invention to construct a fastener to Vwhich bothportions of an ankle strap may he secured in such a manner 'that they arealwa'ys attached to the skate and shoe, are always available and readyfor use, and' cannot be lost, mi'slaid orI- misplaced., y

'I heinvention will be'eXpl'a-ined in detailA and more readily understood when read in conjunctionv with the `accompanying lraw4 ings which illustrate various embodiments of which the invention is susceptible it being,V therefore, obvious that .otherV structures, changes, and modifications may be made without departing from the spirit of the ap-'- pended claims forming a 'part hereof.

vIn the drawings: A

Figure l is asideelevation of a skate and shoe having one form. of rthe invention applied thereto; i

showing the fastener illustrated in Figures i 1, 2 and 4 secured thereto.

Figure 7 is a plan view of the fastener illustrated in Figures 3 and 5.

Figure 8 is a plan view showing a modified arrangement of the structure shown in Figure 7.

In the various embodiments of the invention illustrated in the drawings, the fastener is shown as produced from a sheet or strip of suitable metal which is punched to provide the desired shape and is provided with means whereby it may be secured to the skate and to also have a strap attached thereto. It is, of course, understood that two straps are preferably employed, one of which is attached to one side of the skate and shoe and the other of which is attached to the other side of the skate and shoe, and also that one of the straps will be provided with a buckle for releasably holding the straps in associated and adjusted positions. The material of the fastener is preferably, but not necessarily, of a character which will allow it to be bent to permit it to be arranged so that it will lie flat against the side of the shoe, or be arranged to extend outwardly from the shoe, so that it is more readily accessible without necessitating the removal of the fastener when the replacement of a strap becomes necessary.

In Figures 1, 2, 4, and 6 there are shown two fasteners 10 and 11, which are identical in construction, one of which is arranged at the heel upon one side of the skate and shoe, and the other of which is arranged upon the other side of the skate and shoe. Each fastener has an end interposed between the sole 12 of the shoe 13 at the heel of the shoe and the heel plate 14 of the skate 15. The fasteners are respectively, and more or less loosely, held in position by the rivets 16 and 1,7 which, together with the several rivets 18, hold the skate with relation to the shoe. To permit the fasteners 10 and 11 to be engaged and held by the rivets 16 and 17 respectively, each of thefasteners are provided with'an aperture 19 through which the rivets 16 and 17 are respectively passed. The attachment of the fasteners in this manner permits the fasteners to pivot upon said rivets, allowing fasteners when bent in the manner shown in Figure 2 to compensate for the various movements of the foot during skating. 'Ihe fasteners are each further provided with the apertures 2O and 21 through which rivets, 22 and 23, are respectively passed to engage and secure the strap sections 24 and 25 respectively to the fastenersV 10 and 11. Y @ne of the strap sections is provided with a buckle 26 for holding the straps in connected and adjusted position.

y The structure just described provides a simple, inexpensive, and effective fastener for securing a strap to the skate, permits relative pivotal movement thereof when in use, and produces a strong and -durable construction which, because it may be arranged outermost and relatively to the side of the strap attached thereto, provides `an armor or protection to the strap at this point.

It is manifest that when the fastener is made of sheet metal that the end thereof, to which one of the strap sections are attached, may be bent in the shape illustrated in Figure 2 or may be bent so that it extends outwardly from the side of the skate, in which position the end is more readily accessible to permit repair or replacement of a strap.

It is evident that the fastener is capable of association with skates not previously supplied with fasteners because it is capable of being forced or placed between the sole 12 of the shoe 13 and heel plate 14 or arranged in other relations to the shoe after the rivet 16, or 17 as the case may be, is removed or arranged to permit of the association of the fastener with the shoe.

Because of the relatively thin gage metal employed in manufacturing the fastener, it may be formed in the manner illustrated in Figure 1, in which the end of ,the fastener, to which the strap is attached, aligns with or corresponds to the angle which said strap assumes when performingthe function of bracing the ankle of the wearer. It is further manifest that the invention is of advantage over those structures, in which the straps are secured, by being sewed to the shoes, because of the ease with which a broken or worn strap may be replaced or repaired.

In the fasteners illustrated in Figures 3, 5, 7, and 8 fasteners are disclosed which are formed of single pieces or strips of relatively thin metal which are also adapted to be interposed between the heel por-tien of the sole of the shoe and the heel plate of the skate by being passed endwise between said portions of the shoe and skate.

The fastener disclosed in Figures 3, 5 and 7 consists of a strip of suitably gaged metal, generally designated 27, and has the central portion 28 and the opposite end portions 29 and 30. The opposite end portions 29 and 30 are in angular relation to the central portion 28-of the strip. The central portion 28 is provided with apertures 31 and 32 to permit the attachment of the strip to the skate and shoe by permitting the insertion of rivets 33 and 3fin the apertures. The angularly disposed end portions 29 and 30 are each provided with apertures' 35 and 36 to permit the attachment of the strip to the ends of the two portions 37 and 38 of ankle straps similar to the ankle straps 24 and 25. The ends of the two strap portions 37 and 38 are riveted to the end Aportions 29 and 30 of the fastener by rivets 39 and 4i() which are inserted in the apertures 35 and 36. After the opposite ends of the fastener 27 have had the separate ankle strap portions 37 and 38 secured to them they are bent toward the shoe along the dotted lines a-a and a-a so that they will assume the position illustrated in Figures 3cand 5.

In'Figure 8 there is illustrated another form of fastener generally designated 4l.

It is made without having its opposite ends f2 and Lf3 angularly disposed with relation to its central portion 44 but isadapted to be attached to the skate and shoe and also to the strap ends in a manner identical with he fastener illustrated in Figure 7. The fastener 4l employs apertures and rivets similar to those shown in the other figures of the drawing and herein described. When bent along the dotted lines b-b and 5 5 the fastener 41 will assume substantially7 the position illustrated in Figures 3 and 5.

Vhen the opposite ends of the fasteners 27 and 4:1 are bent into position at the sides of the shoes to which they are attached, they will substantially correspond to the angle which the ankle straps assume when performing the function of supporting'the feet and ankles.

The corners of the ends of the fasteners are cut away and rounded, as shown in the drawings, in order to dispose of sharp points and edges as far as possible.

While the fastener has been shown and described in connection with an ice skate and attached shoe it will be obvious that it may be used equally well with a roller skate.

Having thus described theinvention what is claimed is the following;

1. A fastener for securing a strap to a skate and shoe which are attached to each other, said fastener being formed of a suitably shaped flexible strip to be arranged transversely to the length of the skate and shoe when associated therewith and having an end thereof extended beyond the side of the skate and shoe and diagonally toward the instep portion of the shoe, said end having means whereby a strap may be secured thereto, said strip also having means provided inte 1mediate its ends for receiving a member for fixedly securing said strip to said skate and shoe, said member providing means for attaching` the skate and shoe together. y K
