13 Claims.
This invention relates to a device which may be used as an ear ornament or as a dress ornament; and has for one of its objects the provision of a finding for such a device which when If used as. an ear ornament will be more comfortable to wear on the ear than the devices which has heretofore been provided, and yet will be securely mounted on the car so that it will not slip or fall therefrom.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a device which will engage the ear without any spring pressure tending to continually close it upon the ear, but rather one which may be moved to the desired position and will remain III in this position without greater binding action upon the ear and thus one to which the ear may become accustomed and thus more comfortable to wear.
Another object of the invention is the provilo sion of a smaller, neater, and more easily manipulated hinged construction for the two members, and which are strengthened at a point adjacent their hinging point soas not to be distorted upon movement which are customary in the operation :5. of the device.
Another object of the invention is the provision of the minimum number of parts to be secured together to reduce the cost of assemblyand handling.
A further object of the invention is to provide a friction clip which will have suificient friction in its .joint to remain in the position to which it has been moved so that a secure holding may be had. i l 35'; A still further object of the invention is the provision of a short leverage of one of the movable parts so that the action of the lever will be reduced in its amount of turning effort at the hinge pivot. With these and other objectsin view, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction, as will be more fully described, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the use of clips or clasps for the ears or dress or for any article of personal adornment, it may be desirable to provide a device without spring action for holding it in clamped position, which I have accomplished by providing two members and arranged to hinge these members in a neater manner, and so that an increased amount of friction is bad at the hinge; and the following is a more detailed description of the present embodiment of this invention, illustrating the preferred means by which these advantageous results may be accomplished.
With reference to the drawing, 15 designates the body member of the clasp and-16 the jaw member. This body member is of a length greater than the jaw member and is provided with a tongue 17 struck to reduce it in thickness and which is rolled into a small neat eye 18 without the use of an arbor, so that a shape with an opening 19 other than round and more or less of an oblong shape is obtained. The reduced thickness enabling a small eye to be obtained. At the other end portion of this body member, I provide a deflected portion 20 having a spherical surface which is knurled as at 21 to increase its frictional engagement with the portion with which it is to contact.
The jaw member has extending from its body 16 a pair of tongues 22 also of a reduced thickness similar to the tongue 1'7, and these are rolled as at 23 into a small neat eye having an opening 24 also out of round, in a manner similar to the rolling of the eye on the body member 15, While at the opposite end of the jaw member there is deflected a protuberance 25 having a roughened spherical surface so as to provide a localized point of engagement for this jaw member on the portion it is to engage and which will be opposite to the projection 20 on the body member to contact therewith if there is no material to be gripped or located between these members.
These two members, while in their fiat form and with the eyes rolled, are positioned end to end, as shown in Figure 10, with their eyes nearly in line and with the tongues oppositely rolled to stagger the off center openings through the eyes and are held in a jig out of alignment, as shown in Figure 10. A pin 26 having its end rounded somewhat as at 27 to prevent cutting, is forced through the eyes, while held in this manner, which serves to offset the pin as it passes from eye 18 into the eye 23 and again offsets it as it passes into the opposite eye 18. Thus there is provided an offset middle portion 28 from the ends 29 of the pin, which serves not only to lock the pin in position and provide a true pivotal mounting, but also to provide an increased friction on the parts as they are moved from one position to another and a friction which will maintain the parts in the position to which they are moved, and by reason of the openings in the eyes being off round the cylindrical pin will en- 'gage at certain points with greater pressure than at others also increasing the friction on the parts.
After the pin is inserted in this manner, the member 15 is bent as at 30 so as to position the hinging point nearer the free end of the clasp and thus this shorter jaw 16 will not have as great leverage to open as were it pivoted at the bend 30.
This device consisting of the two members pivoted together may be supplied as a finding and an ornament 32 may be attached to the shorter jaw member by riveting through opening 33 or soldered in position where white metal is used; or in some cases, there may be provided instead of a jaw, a short mounting member 33 which may be attached to an ornament 34, as in Figures 14 and 15, and this ornament serves as one of the members against which this clamping action occurs. In all cases the thickened stock serves to raise the ornament away from the hinge joint, and by reason of this thicker stock the bent portion 30 is sufiiciently stiff to prevent bending.
In Figure 12, instead of providing a deflecting portion of stock, such as 25, I provide a spur 31 raised from the stock which forms a more effective point of engagement where fabric to be gripped thanthe round protuberance above mentioned.
The foregoing description is directed solely towards the construction illustrated, but I desire 'it to be understood that I reserve the privilege on said members formed from the stock thereof,
and a hinge pin extending through said eyes and being of such a size as to spring said eyes open, the frictional engagement between said pin and eyes being suflicient to maintain said members in substantially the position to which they are moved.
2. In a device of the character described, a body member and a cooperating member, resilient eyes on said members formed from the stock thereof, and a hinge pin extending through said eyes and being of such a size as to spring said eyes open, the frictional engagement between said pin and eyes being sufficient to maintain said members in substantially the position to which they are moved, and a protuberance adjacent the free end of said body member to localize the point of engagement therewith.
3. In a device of the character described, a body member provided wtih a return bend, a cooperating member, resilient eyes on said members formed from the stock thereof, and a hinge pin extending through said eyes and being of such a size as to spring said eyes open, the frictional engagement between said pin and eyes being sufficient to maintain said members in substantially the position to which they are moved.

5. In a clasp, a body member and a jaw member, eyes provided on said members of an oval shape, and a substantially round pin extending through said eyes to hingedly connect said members and firmly engaging portions of said eyes of the lesser diametrical extent.
6. In a clasp, a body member and a jaw member, eyes provided on said members by rolling portions of the stock thereof into an oval shape and a pin extending through said eyes to hingedly connect said members and firmly engage the portions of said eyes of the lesser diametrical extent.
