MINER S CAP h fi'oldst'ein m Filed Oct. 16, 1934 Mega Jacob Goldsl'ein/ Patented Sept. 10, 1935 UNITED TATE:

iPA'i-ENT oFFi-cs MINERS oAP Application October 16, 1934, Serial No. 748,560

3 Claims.

This invention relates to miners caps, the primary object of the invention being to provide a miners cap including a removable helmet or protecting section, constructed in such a way that it may be easily and readily positioned to protect the head of the wearer against falling coal or stones.

An important object of the invention is to construct a helmet or protecting section of rigid material so that the protecting section will conform to the shape of the head of the wearer, for

the comfort of the wearer.

A further object of the invention is to provide a supporting strip within the protecting section, the supporting strip being spaced from the top of the helmet, whereby the helmet will be held out of contact with the head of the wearer.

Still another object of the invention is to provide a protecting section having ventilating means, so that the head of the wearer will be amply ventilated when the helmet or protecting section is in use.

With the foregoing and other objects in View, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, may be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Referring to the drawing:

Figure 1 is a sectional view through a miners cap and helmet supported thereon.

Figure 2 is a bottom plan view of the helmet seco3 tion.

Figure 3 is a side elevational View thereof.

Figure 4 is a side elevational View of the miners cap, the helmet having been removed.

Referring to the drawing in detail, the miners cap with which the helmet is used, is indicated generally by the reference character 5, and as shown, the cap is provided with a sweatband 6, and an outer band 1 spaced from the body portion of the cap, as clearly shown by Figure 1 of the drawing.

The cap is also provided with a visor 8 and lamp support 9, which lamp support includes a metallic plate ii! formed with openings to accommodate the hook I l of the miners lamp.

50 The helmet or protecting section is indicated by the reference character l2 and comprises the head section it and crown section M, the crown section being secured to the head section by means of the tongues I5, and rivets I6, shown as passing 55 through the tongues and crown section.

The crown section is of a diameter to extend be yond the head section l3. Thus it will be seen that due to this construction, air may circulate between the head section and crown section.

In order that the head section, which is con- 5 structed of substantially rigid material, will conform to the shape of the head of the wearer to insure against binding, notches are formed in the head section, the notches extending from the lower edge of the head section to a point substanl0 tially intermediate the edges of the head section, providing a plurality of flexible fingers ll, that grip the head of the wearer.

Certain of the fingers 11, at the front of the head section, are cut away providing a clearance 15 so that the helmet may fit onto the cap section, and the lamp support extended into the cut out portion.

An outwardly extended flange i8 is formed on the head section and is provided with an open- 20 ing through which the hook of the lamp supported on the cap, may pass, providing additional means for securing the helmet to the cap.

Snap fasteners 20 are provided on the cap, and cooperate with socket members carried on the 25 head section of the helmet, whereby the helmet may be readily secured in position on the cap, but may be readily removed from the cap when the helmet is not needed.

Secured within the helmet, is a supporting 30 plate iii, the plate being spaced from the crown section of the helmet, and arranged in such a Way that it will contact with the cap proper, which in turn rests on the top of the head of the wearer, to the end that a blow directed to the crown section of the helmet will not permit the helmet to be forced downwardly over the head of the wearer.

From the foregoing it will be seen that due to the construction of the helmet, which is preferably made of rigid fibrous material, the head of the person wearing the cap will be protected against falling coal or stones.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is:

1. A miners cap including a body portion having outer and inner folds, a helmet section formed of rigid material and embodying a head section and a crown section, said head section having notches extending upwardly from the lower edge thereof, defining a plurality of yieldable fingers adapted to fit between the folds of the body portion of the cap, and means for removably fastening the head section between the folds of the body portion.

7 ing outer and inner folds providing an annular space around the body portion of the cap, a helmet comprising a rigid head section and a rigid crown section, tongues formed along the upper edge of the head section, said crown section being of a diameter greater than the diameter of the head section and secured to the tongues of the head section whereby the outer edge of the crown section is spaced from the head section, a wide supporting plate secured to the head section of the helmet and extending across the interior of the head section in spaced relation with the crown section, said supporting plate adapted to rest ing outer and inner folds, a helmet to be worn with the cap and embodying a wide circular head section having split portions extending from the edge thereof defining a plurality of yieldable tongues adapted to fit between the folds of the 7 body portion, means for removably securing the helmet between the folds of the body portion, and said helmet including a crown section constructed of rigid material.
