J5 a a2 INVENTOR PHILIP L. Helms BY a- ATTORNEY Patented Dec. 1, 1931 PATENT OFFICE rmn L. ELIMS, OI CLEVELAND, OHIO mm 03 SIMILAR DEVICE Application am much a, 19311 Serial No. 521,230.
My invention relates to hairpins or similar devices and particularly to a type utilizing spring force to clasp the hair between the legs of the pin. a
a In carrying my invention into practice it has been my purpose to provide a hairpin or clip of the t ype specified wherein the clasping action of the legs of the pin is eifected by spring pressure and the release of such to clasping action accomplished by compression of the leg connecting portion of the I will describe my invention in the best forms known to me at present, but it will be understood that the same is susceptible to further modifications in form without depanting from the spirit of my invention.
In the drawings chosen to illustrate my invention, the scope whereof is set forth in the appended claims.
Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 are side elevations of hairpins constructed in accordance with my invention, but illustrating respectively difl'erent adaptations thereof.
Figure 6 is a section on the line 6-6 of Figure 5.
Figure 7 is a side elevation of a modification of the form shown in Figures 5 and 6.
Figure 8 is a perspective view showing the 3% form illustrated in Figure 1 with the legs opened by pressure of the fingers of the hand upon the leg connecting portion of the pin.
Referring particularly to Figure 1, my improved hairpin is shown as formed from 35 a length of spring material shaped to provide legs 10 and 19 and a leg connecting portion formed by bending the length of material at 12, 13, 14, and 16, to form arms 17 and 18, the complete leg connecting portion serving as a spring and exerting its force upon the legs 10 and 19 to normally maintain them pressed together. To separate the legs it is only necessary to manually press the arms 17 and 18 of the leg connecting portion to- 45 gether against their normal spring action as clearly shown in Figure 8. In this form of my invention I turn the free end of the leg 10 outwardly as at 11. I
In the form illustrated in Figure 2, the
leg connecting portion is U-shape instead of V-shape as in Figure 1, with the arms 23 and 24 of said portion normally parallel. In this form of my invention the leg is corrugated as at 21, while both the leg 20 and leg 27 have their free ends turned outwardly as at 11 and 29 respectively.
In the form shown in Figure 3 -the leg connecting portion is similar to that of Figure 2, except for a slightly different shape at the base 31 thereof. In this form the leg 32 is provided with corrugations 33 which normally interfit with the corrugations 21 of the leg 20, while the free end of leg 32 is extended and turned in the same direction as the free end 11 of leg 20.
In the form shown in Figure 4 the legs are indicated at 35 and 38 with a single corrugation 36 formed in the leg 35 and an opening 37 in leg 38 which is adapted to receive said corrugation when the pin is closed;
In the form shown in Figures 5 and 6 the leg 40 is curved transversely to form a half round surface which fits down over the similarly shaped leg 41, the le connecting portion 42 being in the form 0% a loop.
Fig. 7 shows a modification which differs from figures 5 and 6 in that the legs have no transversely curved surfaces, the leg 45 having a plurality of corrugations 46 with a leg connecting portion 47 in the form of a loop and the leg 48 having rounded indentations 49 positioned correspondingly to the corrugations 46 of the leg 45.
The various forms herein described maybe interchanged or combined one with the other so that the above described forms need not be strictly adhered to, and the device is capable of use either as a hairpin or as a clasp or clip for any other purpose, such as a tie holder or clasp.
I claim:
1. A hairpin or clip of spring material consisting of two legs and a leg connecting portion formed by successively bending the material uponitself to produce two normally spaced arms, said leg connecting portion exerting a spring action upon the legs to press them together and operable when the arms thereof are pressed toward each other to separate the legs, said arms being of substantially equal length and having a loop portion therebetween the forward end of which extends closely adjacent the rear ends of the legs and forms a fulcrum on which both legs swing a open when the arms are pressed together.
2. A hairpin of spr n material consisting of two legs one of whic is provided with a 1 corrugation and theother with an opening receivlng the corrugation when the legs are m pressed together, and a leg connecting portion embodying two spaced arms, said leg connecting portion constantly exerting a spring action upon the legs to press them together and operable when the arms thereof are 15 ressed toward each other to separate the egs.
In testimony whereof, I do afiix my signature.
