Jan. 3, 1933. GOODMAN 1,893,281
HAIR CURL CLIP Filed July 23, 1932 INVENTOR.

' throughout a major portion of their lengths Patented Jan. 3, 1933 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE JACOB GOODMAN, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR TO EMETH FINANCIAL COR- PORATION, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK HAIR CURL CLIP Application filed July 23,
This invention relates to hair devices, and more particularly to certain improvements in hair curl clips.
It is an object of the invention to provide a simple and efiicient spring clip for use in dressing and setting hair in the form of flat curls.
Another object is to provide a light, strong and durable spring clip which is constructed without a hinge or pivot pin, and which may be readily manufactured on a high production basis at a relatively low cost.
According to the present invention I pro vide a hair curl clip comprising a pair of hair gripping jaws connected together with a leaf spring, said jaws being adapted to grip the hair between their opposed contacting faces throughout substantially their entire lengths.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear from the following detailed description thereof taken in connection with the accompanying drawing which forms a part of this specification and in which Figure 1 is a plan view of a hair curl clip embodying the improved construction Fig. 2 is a side view thereof, indicating the hair gripping jaws in their opened position by means of dotted lines;
Fig. 3 is a section taken on the line 33 of Fig. 2; and
Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a modification.
Referring to the drawing. 10 and 11 indicate a pair of jaw members in facial contact 7 which jaw members may be formed of flat pieces of sheet metal or other suitable mate rial.
Each jaw member preferably tapers to substantially a rounded point 12 at one end for convenience in inserting the device in the hair. and has its central or middle portion 13 cut out to lighten the construction and to permit of circulation of air, it being understood that generally in forming flat curls the hair is first wctted or moistened before it is caught between the jaws of the clip.
The opposite ends 14 and 15 of said jaw members are bent to diverge from each other as seen in Fig. 2 of the drawing. These bent 1932. Serial No. 624,201.
ends provide finger grip portions for opening the jaws. A U-shaped spring 16 is disposed between the divergent ends and is secured thereto in any desired manner, as by soldering brazing or riveting. Preferably this seecurement is effected by bending or rolling the side edges 17 of said end portions over and against the sides of the spring as is clearly illustrated in Fig. 3. The bent edges 17 not only securely fasten the spring to the jaws but they may also provide stops to prevent the spring from being flexed to such extent as to cause it to set or to produce crystallization of the spring metal from continued excessive bending. It will be observed that when the divergent ends 14 and 15 are pressed together to open the jaws against the action of the spring, as indicated by the dotted lines in Fig. 2, the rolled edges of the upper and lower end portions will come into contact before the arms of the spring can be completely pressed together. The extent of permissible fleXure of the spring may thus be readily regulated and determined in the manufacture of the device.
Figure 4 shows a modification wherein the jaw and spring portions of the device are formed into a single unit and are made entirely out of one piece of spring metal bent and stamped to the desired form and shape. In this form as in the form previously described, the device comprises two jaw portions 18 and 19 each having divergently bent portions 20 and 21 at one end which portions are integrally connected by a portion 22 bent in substantially U-shape and providing a spring which normally urges the jaws into their closed position as shown.
I am aware that-it is not new to provide a hair clip comprising a pair of pivotally connected spring pressed clamping arms or jaws between which the hair is engaged in making the curls and, therefore, I do not broadly claim such construction. I am not aware, however, that a hair curl clip has ever before my invention been constructed without a pivot or hinge. It will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art that my improved hair curl clip is much easier and cheaper to manufacture on a high production basis than is one in which the jaws are hinged or pivotally connected in that it involves fewer and simpler parts and requires less labor to assemble the parts. Furthermore, my improvement results in a much stronger, lighter and more durable construction.
Various changes in the form, shape and details of construction herein described may be made without departing from the scope or spirit of the invention as defined in the claims.
What I claim is 1. A hair curl clip comprising a pair of jaw members having divergent portions at one end thereof, a substantially U-shaped spring disposed between said divergent portions and having each of its legs engaged with the inner faces of the respective said divergent portions, and extensions on each of the sides of each of the divergent portions and which are directed inwardly to engage the inner side faces of the legs of the spring to tightly clamp same against the inner faces of the divergent portions, said extensions extending throughout substantially the entire length of each of the legs of the spring whereby to enclose each of the side edges of the legs of the spring, and the bight of the spring being disposed adjacent to the points of convergence of the said divergent portions and forming a fulcrum point for the jaw members.
2. A hair curl clip in accordance with claim 1 in which the extensions are transversely curved throughout so as to afford smooth uninterrupted portions and in which the edges of the extensions confront and are engaged with the inner faces of the legs of the spring.
3. A hair curl clip comprising a pair of jaw members having divergent portions at one end thereof, a substantially U-shaped spring disposed between said divergent portions and having each of its legs engaged with the inner faces of the respective said divergent portions, the bight of the spring being disposed adjacent to the points of convergence of the said divergentportions, and means to connect each of the legs of the springs to the respective divergent portions whereby the bight of the spring forms a fulcrum point for the jaw members.
Signed at New York city, in the county of New York and State of New York this 21st day of July, A. D. 1932.
