EXTENSION DEVICE Filed April 6, 1932 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Invenor /Ziornaiy Patented May 23, 1933 UNrrED STATES PATENT oFFlcE KENNETH lH. BAKER, OF NORTH ATTLEBORO, MASSACHUSETTS, ABSIGNOR, BY IESNE ASSIGNMENTS, TOAHABOLD E. SWEET, DOING BUSINESS 'UNDER THE NAME AND STYLE OF R. E. SIMMONS COMPANY OF ATTLEBORO, MASSACHUSETTS EXTENSION DEVICE Application and prix e, 1932. serial no. 69u46.

My invention relates to extension devices of the foldable section type incorporated in wrist-watch bands, bracelets, and the like.

The essential objects of my invention are to supplement the extension afforded by the foldable character of the device by an auxiliary extension member of a slidable character; to adjustably control the extent of movement of the slidable member; to enable the adjustment to be effected with facility; to insure an el'ective interengagement of parts in adjusted position whereby the interlocking elements will not readily become disengaged; to prevent excessive depression of the rack entrant member; to afford `an effective stop against excessive. expansion of the device; and to attain these ends in a strong and inexpensive structure.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations embodied in the appended claims.

In the accompanying drawings which form a part of this specification,

Figure 1 is a front elevation of my extension device embodied in a wrist Watch bracelet,

Figure 2, an enlarged longitudinal section on line 2-2 of Figure 1,

Figure 3, a fragmentary rear elevation .of the bracelet with the sections unfolded,

respectively, v

Figure 10, a section of the extension device partially unfolded taken on a line corres onding with line 2 2 of Figure 1.

ike reference characters indicate like parts vthroughout the views.

As herein shown my extendible fastening device includes a keeper or housing section 15, for the reception of the foldable intermediate and back sections 17 and 19 respectively, vpivotally connected therewith, and an extension link 21 slidably mounted therein. The strap sections 23 and 25 as herein shown, composedof rectangular links 27 and tubular connectors 28, are pivotally attached to the outer ends of the foldable section 19 and the slide link 21 respectively.

The housing section 15, preferably longitudinally curved, includes a front wall 29 having a rail projection 30 upon one end,

and rearwardly directed longitudinally dis-v posed lateral guides 31 upon lts top and bottom comprising integral outer wall portions 33 and transversely archedy .forwardly directed flanges 35.v Thron hout 'the major portions of their lengths t e latter are cut away to form guideways 37. Intermediate their lengths the flanges have oppositely disf posed recesses 39 extending from the guideways. flanges have transversely disposed integral stop lugs 41 formed on their forward edges as shown in Fi res 3 and 5.

Slidably mounted 1n the member 15 is an oblong link 43 comprising side bars 45, rectangular in cross section, and bars 46 and 47 upon their inner and outer ends respectively., The bars 43 are a .sliding fit in the guideways 37. Upon the rear faces of the side bars near their inner ends are stop projeetions 49 adapted to engage 'the lugs 41 to limit the outward travel of the link 43.

A locking or catch member 51 comprises a bearing lip 52 in slidable engagement with the front wall 29 having an end loopl 53 frictionally embracing the link end bar 46 and with which is integral an upwardly inclined resilient laterally tapering tongue 55 provided with a rearwardly turned broad tooth 5G. Upon the tongue 55 are lateral forwardly directed stop flanges 57. The member 51 is intended to detachably engage the intermediate or rack section 17.

In detail the latter member is formed At their outer end portions theV from an oblong blank of thin metal, cornprising a front thickness or body portion 58 provided with a plurality of transversely disposed longitudinally arranged oblong 5 openings 59 previously cut therethrouvh.

forcing rear Wall 63. Projecting from the ends of the portion 58 are integral hinge sleeves 65 and 66. The former embraces a pintle 68 pivoted in perforations 69 near the inner end of the flange 35, while the latter embraces a pintle 71 in hinge sleeve 72 flanges 74 are oppositel upon the inner end of the rear wall 73 of the back section 19, which wall has forwardly directed lateral flanges 74.

Intermediate their lengths upon the disposed rounded lateral projections 75 a apted to snap into the cavities 39 in the flanges of the housing section 15 when the parts are in folded position, as shown in Figure 4.

Upon, the outer end of the wall 73 of the section 19 is a forwardly directed hinge sleeve 77 surrounding the side bar 79 of the end link 27 of the strap section 23.

In operating my extension device, while the parts are positioned in some such manner as shown in Fi re 10,`the operator slides the adjusting ink 21 rearwardly in the guideways 37 such a distance as is required to fit the bracelet to the wearers wrist, and then compresses the section 19 into locked engagement with the section 15 as already described, with the rack section 17 therebetween. As the latter section ap' proached the front section 15 during the folding movement the tooth 56 registered in the nearest opening 59 of the member 17, whereby the tongue 55 was depressed until the stop flanges 57 abutted against the front wall 29 at each side of-the bearing lip 52. Thus the Vtongue was depressed the required distance for the proper interpositioning of the folded sections, and the stop flanges 57 insured not only a uniform depression of the tongue, but prevented weakening of the member 51 by excessive compression of the parts 55 and 52.

The construction of the rack member 17 is such that each of the openings 59 are clearly cut, defined, and deep, so that the tooth 56 enters its opening positively and is seated deeply which insures against accidental slipping or sliding from the opening under4 great longitudinal strain upon the locked bracelet parts.

It will be noted that the described construction and arrangement of the stop means which include the projections 49 and lugs 41 is convenient, strong, and inexpensive.

I claim:
