2 Claims. (Cl. 241-1) This invention relates to a sock supporting device, of that class which is intended to hold up and retain in place mens socks or golf stockings, and the object of the invention is to provide 7 a device of this kind that shall be small, neat,

efficient and cheap.

Another object of the invention is to provide an article of this kind that shall be formed of one piece, and not contain any catches, clasps or, 10 elastic bands or other parts that are subject to wear. I

Another object of the invention is to provide an article of this kind that can be made from.

be entirely hidden from view, and which will not contract holes in the sock.

With these and other objects in view, my invention consists in certain novel construction and combination of parts as will hereafter be fully described and claimed, and illustrated in the ac- 1 companying drawing, in which like figures of reference refer to correspcndingparts in all of the views, and it is understood that slight changes may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a view showing the application of the device to the wearer, a part of the sock being removed to show the device secured to both the sock and the undergarment.

5 Figure 2 is a top edge view of the device, showing the curvature to conform to the shape of the leg. v

Figure 3 shows a front elevation of the device.

Figure 4 is an enlarged cross sectional'view, to

40 illustrate the angular teeth which engage the garments.

Referring to the drawing:

The device comprises a curved frame of anysuitable size, shape and material, and which is here shown as formed with a top beading 11, bottom beading 12, both made by turning over the v top andbottom edges of the strip of material 10.

The ribs13, 14,20 and 19 are made by removing portions of the strip 10, by punching out the same, or by molding or casting, and the ribs 13 are turned inward at right angles to the body,

while the ribs 14 are turned outward at right angles to the body as shown in Figure 4.

The ribs 19 are also turned. inward and the ribs 20 outward, and'while someof these ribs are shown as being vertical and others on an angle, they may be placed in any manner desired.

These ribs 13, 14, 19, and 20 are all provided with integral teeth'or spurs; the outer ones 15 pointing upward and the inner ones 16, downward, with their points projecting slightly beyond the plane of the beads 11 and 12.

In using the device, it is understood that there are a pair of them, one for each leg.

The device is placed between the undergarment and the top of the sock 1'? as shown in Figure 1; the inner teeth embedding themselves into the undergarment 18 retaining it from upward movement, and the outer teeth 15 embedding themselves into the sock 17, preventing its downward movement, and securely retaining both the under- 0 garment 18 and the sock 17 together, the application and removal being effected instantly, and the device being out of sight under the top of the sock.

Having thus described my invention, what I 5 claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is: 1

1. In a sock supporter, a curved frame having top and bottom beading, a series of ribs connected to saidbeading, teeth formed on said ribs for go engagement both with an undergarment -and a sock.. i I

2. In a sock supporter, a curved frame formed with an upper and a lower beading and designed to be placed between the undergarment and the sock, a series of ribs formed in said frame, one edge of said ribs turned inwardly and the other edge .turned outwardly and teeth formed on said edges for engagement both with the undergarment and the sock.

I MARK W. REEVES.
