Abstract

A cap which visor is preformed at least a pair of slots opened on a position near one side of the visor is fitted with magnetic means provided to conveniently decorate metal badge on the cap without any extra cutting operation only by magnetic attraction.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE PRESENT INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Present Invention The present invention relates to a cap which is fitted with magnetic means provided to conveniently decorate metal badge on the cap only by magnetic attraction, and more particularly relates to a cap on which visor's surface near to both sides is provided with a pair of preformed slots opened for user easily to fit with magnetic means thereon and to changeably decorate various ornamental badges on different position of the cap.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMNETS
  • Referring to from FIG. 1 to FIG. 4, a preferred embodiment of the invention is to fit a cap or hat ([0012] 10) with a magnetic mean (15) at the visor (11) and at the top, the back, and the sides of the crown (12) of the cap or hat (10) respectively. Therefore, the user can be arbitrarily decorated his/her favorite metal ornamental badges (19) on any one of the magnetic means (15) already fitted on the cap or hat (10) only by way of magnetic attraction.
  • The visor ([0013] 11) of the cap or hat (10) of the invention, which is made of harden paperboard or plastics, have particularly preformed a pair of slots (13) opened near to one of the side of the visor (11) or have particularly preformed two pairs of slots (13) opened near to each sides of the visor (11) as shown in FIG. 2 for laborsaving, so that a magnetic means (15) of the invention is conveniently fitted onto the visor (11) without any extra cutting operation.
  • Referring to FIG. 2 and FIG. 3, each magnetic means ([0014] 15) of the invention comprises a magnetic plate (16), a pair of fastened pins (17) and a washer (18). The magnetic plate (16) provided with magnetism is used to attract any metal ornamental badge (19) by magnetic attraction so that any metal ornamental badge (19) can be directly connected onto top surface of magnetic plate (16) for decoration; the pair of fastened pins (17) of the magnetic means (15) downward formed from the bottom of the magnetic plate (16) are used to position and fasten the magnetic plate (16) onto the visor (11) or the crown (12) of the cap or hat (10), i.e., by way of inserting the pair of pins (17) through the pair of slots (13) opened on the visor (11) or directly nailing the pair of pins (17) through the crown (12) of cap or hat (10); and the washer (18) provided a pair of openings (18 a) which are used to provide the pair of fastened pins (17) correspondingly sleeved into after the pair of fastened pins (17) are completely inserted through the visor (11) or nailed through the crown (12) of cap or hat (10).
