  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention generally relates to magnetic accessories. More particularly the present invention relates to a magnetized armband.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Professional users of small hand tools such as carpenters, seamstresses, auto mechanics, electricians, plumbers, construction workers, as well as non-professional do-it-yourselfers are often frustrated whenever they misplace, drop or fumble tools or supplies while doing their jobs. Workers often times wear aprons or similar devices to hold these supplies to keep them close at hand and also to be able to move more freely. However, wearing an apron or similar device has certain limitations. For instance, repetitive reaching in pockets for supplies is tedious. Moreover, wearing an apron or similar device does not help the task of reaching for supplies while holding a perfectly aligned work piece or holding a heavy work piece with one hand and some other tool with the other. Additionally, aprons and similar devices are prone to accidentally spill the tools and work items that are held within the pockets of the apron or similar device. Often this spillage is caused because the worker accidentally knocked the tools or work items over with their hand, or because of how the worker is positioned while doing their job.

  • Referring to FIG. 1, a first embodiment of the magnetized armband is depicted therein. A magnetized armband 100 is shown which comprises an elongated fabric band having a layered portion 110 located between a first region 130 and a second region 140. The band is constructed from a flexible fabric such as woven cloth. Various other types of materials could alternatively be used including, but not limited to leather, cotton, cotton/polyester blends, plastic, nylon, vinyl, neoprene, synthetic leather, knit or rubber.
  • The first region 130 and a second region 140 can be coupled to form a closed loop. In some embodiments of the present application, the loop side of a hook-and-loop fastener fabric 170 is stitched to the top of the second region 140. As shown in FIG. 1B, the hook side of the hook-and-loop fastener 150 is stitched to the underside of the of the band substantially underneath the first region 130. Additionally, a fabric tab 160 has the hook side of the hook-and-loop fastener fabric 180 stitched to the bottom side of the tab 160. Alternatively, other means for fastening the magnetized armband 100 can be utilized including but not limited to buttons, buckles, snaps, hooks, threads or zippers. In some embodiments the second region 140 and the hook-and-loop fastener fabric 170 is sufficiently long so as to allow for adjustability. In some embodiments of the present application, the diameter of this closed loop ranges from one (1) inch to twelve (12) inches. However, a closed loop with any other appropriate diameter is contemplated.
  • In some embodiments, as shown in FIGS. 11A and 11B, the first and second regions (1130, 1140) are coupled to a first and second strap (1135, 1145), wherein the first and second straps are releasably attachable to each other via a hook-and-loop fastener fabric (1150, 1170) coupled to their surfaces. Alternatively, other means for fastening the magnetized armband 1100 are able to be utilized including but not limited to buttons, buckles, snaps, hooks, threads or zippers. In some embodiments the second strap and/or first strap (1145, 1135) and the hook-and-loop fastener fabric (1150, 1170) is sufficiently long so as to allow for adjustability.
  • In some embodiments, the layered portion 110 has multiple layers of fabric to hold one or more magnets 120. As shown in FIG. 1, the one or more magnets 120 are long strips. Alternatively, as shown in the embodiments of FIGS. 2 and 3, these magnets are either small balls or discs, respectively. These magnets are substantially permanently stitched into the multiple layers. Alternatively, the magnets 120 are partially stitched into the multiple layers to allow access to them. In the example of the magnetized armband where the magnets 120 are partially stitched into the multiple layers, various means can be utilized to completely seal the magnets. These means include, but are not limited to buttons, buckles, snaps, hooks, threads or zippers.
  • In another embodiment, as shown in FIG. 4, vertically configured magnets 120 are numerous and spread out so as to substantially encircle the whole wrist of a worker when the magnetized armband is wrapped in a closed loop around a worker's wrist.
  • In some embodiments, as shown in FIG. 5, the magnetized armband 200 is wrapped around a worker's wrist 210. The hook fasteners (depicted in FIG. 1 as 150) line up with the loop fasteners area 250, allowing the armband to become a closed loop around the worker's wrist 210. The fabric tab 240 is included to be held by the worker to wrap the magnetized armband and also allows the worker to easily loosen the loop fasteners area 250 from the hook fasteners or to remove the magnetized armband 200. The fabric tab 240 also fastens to the loop fastener area 250. Magnetically attractable tools and supplies 220 are attracted and held to the armband by the magnetic field from the one or more magnets 230 stitched into the fabric. This allows the attracted tools and supplies 220 to be readily accessible to the worker.
  • In some embodiments, neodymium magnets are utilized to attract such tools and supplies. Neodymium has been chosen because it is one of the strongest permanent magnets made and does not lose its strength over time.
  • FIG. 6 illustrates some embodiments of the present application being used by a worker. The magnetized armband 300 is wrapped around a worker's wrist 310 and connected by coupling a second region 330 and a fabric tab 340 to a first region 350. Magnetically attractable tools and supplies 320 are held to the magnetized armband 330 by the magnets 360. As depicted, the worker can hold screws in place while drilling and can easily gain access to additional supplies held in place on the magnetized armband.
  • FIG. 7 illustrates another embodiment of the present application. The second region 430 and the fabric tab 440 is coupled to the first region 450 to form a closed loop. The closed loop that is formed is loose which allows the band to dangle from a surface. This embodiment can be used with various surfaces or workplace fixtures, including but not limited to the rung of a ladder 470. In this embodiment of the present application, a worker using a ladder can set the band to dangle at the appropriate height, and attach magnetically attractable tools and supplies to the band for easy access to them.
