EYELASH CURLER 'Filed Jan. 11. 1932 mmel W' E TOPS Patented Apr. 18, 1933 UNITED STATES' PATENT OFFICE WILLIAM R. TUTTLE AND CHARLES W. STICKEL, OF ROCHESTER, NEW YORK, ASSIGNORS TO THE KURLASH COMPANY, INC., 0F ROCHESTER, NEW YORK,'A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK EYELASH CURLEB Application led January 11, 1932. Serial No. 586,012.l
This invention relates generally to eyelash curlers wherein the upper fixed Jaw and the lower movable or curling jaw cooperate in the sanie plane in the crimping or curling operation. v
More specifically, the invention relates to a type of eyelash curle'r described in U. S. Let! ters Patent No. 1,699,084, wherein the lower and movable jaw moves vertically and against the lower edge of the fixed stationary An object of the invention is the provision of a rubber strip adapted to engage with the lower and movable curling jaw of an eyelash curler of the type of eyelash curler above described, such that less pressure is required to curl the eyelashes of the upper eyelid.
Another object of the invention is the provision of means wherebyethedanger of breaking and plucking out of the eyelash hairs is minimized. v A further object of the invention is the provision of a removable and resilient rubber strip facing, which facing is adapted to be engaged with the lower jaw of the eyelash curler.
These objects and other incidental ends will appear in the following disclosure, wherein the accompanying drawing forms a part thereof and wherein like reference characters designate corresponding parts `throughout the several views. Y
Figure 1 isa fragmentary vertical .section of the jaws of an eyelash curler with our improved rubber facing thereon, showing the action of the same on the eyelashes ofthe upper eyelid;
' Figure 2 is a side elevation of an eyelash curler embodying the improvement and ,showing the parts in the position which they occupy when applied to the eyelashes of the upper eyelid;
Figure 3 is a plan view of Figure 2 along line 3 3;
Figure 4 is a viewin perspective of a preferred embodiment of the invention per se.
1 represents a supporting lever having at `its lower end a linger receiving loop 2 and at its upper end a pair of diverging upper supporting arms 3 terminating in a palr ofk 4 is an operating lever provided with finger receiving loop 5 at its lower end and a pair of upper arms 6 arranged at an angle with operating lever 4. Supporting llever 1 and operating lever 4 are plvoted together at 13, as shown in Figure 2, it being understood that the upper arms 6 are contained within the uppery supporting arms 3 at the pivotal point, although the said connection is vnot fully yshown in Figure 2.
7 represents a link passing through upper arms 6 and divegging into two branches, as shown by a reference to Figure 3. 9 represents a movable and lower jaw' with an upwardly opening channel, to the bottom face of which is affixed the terminals of links 7. The opposite 4endsof channel 9 are provided with sleeves 10 in order to engage parallel guide bars 11 for the vertical movements of the said movable jaw. I8v is an upper jaw formed preferably of a strip of metal and afiixed at the ends thereof in' any known 'ly to conform with the general curvature of the eyeball.
12 is a rubber strip comprising a U channel 13 on the upper face 14 thereof. Heretofore and in accordance with United States .Letters Patent No. 1,699,084, it has been necessary to exert a minimum amount of pressure on the supporting and operating levers in order that eyelash A, as shown in Figure 1, attain ithe angular position therein represented. Uv groove or channel 13 in the rubber facing heretofore used has been effected solely by pressure. By the invention of your applicants a U grooveis already furnished in the rubber facing so that no pressure whatsoever is required to force an eyelash into such configuration for purposes of curving.
The danger, as heretofore mentioned, of limpressing a U groove in the'strip facing carries with it the danger of breaking and plucking the hairsof the upper eyelid. Our invention eliminates such danger.
- the upper surface thereof for en eyelid have been inserted through the slit as above said, links 7 cause lower jaw to move vertically along parallel guide bars 15 until the lower ed e of upper jaw 8 engages U groove 13 of ru ber facing 12. Up to this r point the only pressure exerted is the pressure of bringing the jaws of the eyelash curler together. T e curling of the eyelash does not require added pressure by reason of the latters conforming to the shape of groove 13. By prior methods in order that eyelash A assume the configuration of Figure 1 shown in the accompanying drawing, an added amount of pressure to bring about a U groove in the up r face of 'rubber strip 12 was necessary. ur invention has eliminated the use of this added pressure with its aforementioned attendant dangers.
We wish it understood that minor changes and variations in the'size, material, location and general shape of the several parts of the invention may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention nor departing from the scope of the appended claims. v
We claim:
1. In an eyelash curler comprising two relatively and vertically movable jaws curved to fit about an eyelid and to receive eyelashes between them and wherein one of said jaws has an upwardly opening channel along the axis of which the operative edge of the other jaw is parallel, an elastic strip as a projectlng facing for said channel and secured therein, the said elastic strip being provided with a central and longitudinal groove on gement with the operative edge of the a ovementioned jaw.
2. In an eyelash curler comprising two relatively and vertically movable jaws curved to fit about an eyelid and to receive leyelashes between them and wherein oneof said jaws has an upwardly opening channel along the 'axis of which the operative edge of the other jaw is parallel, a removable elastic strip as a projecting facing for said channel, being provided with a central and longitudinal groove on the upper surface thereof.
3. In an eyelashcurler comprising two relatively and vertically movable jaws curved to lit about an eyelid and to receive eyelashes between them and wherein one of said jaws has an upwardly opening channel along the axis of which the operative edge e
