Nov. 19, 1935- G. F. WATERS ET AL GARMENT SUPPORTER Filed Sept. 10, 1954 3nventors ev-Trude 7 W-airs BU Gilbert A Wafers.

Gttomeg Patented Nov. 19, 1935 PATENT OFFICE 2,021,619 GARMENT SUPPORTER Gertrude F. Waters and Gilbert A. Waters, Sharon, Conn.

Application September 10, 1934, Serial No. 743,360

Claims. (01. 24-259) Our invention relates to a garment-supporter of that class which is employed for retaining and supporting such garments as stockings and socks, and particularly to a clasp for use with 5 womens corsets and girdles, and where it is important that a very thin clasp be employed so that the same will not form a noticeable bunch or show through the clothing, and yet the device must be reliable and strong and not damage in any manner the finest and thinnest fabrics.

The object of our invention is to provide a garment-supporter or clasp of this kind that shall be of minimum thickness and which will lie perfectly fiat when in use.

Another object of the invention is to provide a clasp that shall be light, strong, durable, easily attached and which will preventany slipping or accidental loosening of the garment.

Another object of the invention is to provide a clasp that may be cheaply manufactured from spring metal or other suitable material, and which may be colored different shades to match the garments.

Another object of the invention is to provide a clasp that can be made in one piece, such as a stamping, and that requires no machine work or assembling, other than its attachment to the garment.

With these and other objects in view, our invention relates to a novel construction that will hereinafter be fully described and claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawing which forms a part hereof and in which like figures of reference refer to corresponding parts 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 shows the clasp secured by the usual webbing to a corset or the like, and in engagement with the upper part of a stocking.

Figure 2 shows a side elevation of the clasp with the tongue pressed to the rear to allow the clasp to be applied to the stocking.

Figure 3 is a side elevation of Figure 1, and shows the position of the tongue and stocking when in an engaged or holding position.

Figure 4 is a plan view of the clasp.

Figure 5 shows a modified form of the device, where two clasps are made side by side to give a double grip.

Figure 6 shows a form or modification of the device whereby the same is formed with two grips opposed to each other so that one can be used in place of the webbing strap.

tion I0, formed at the upper end with the eye 5 II and slot IT, by which it may be permanently attached by the webbing strap I2 to a corset or other garment.

The other end of the device is shaped in the form of a spear sothat it may readily be slid 10 over the stocking or sock I6, and from the body portion I0 is struck the tongue I4, its upper end being a part of the body portion near the eye, and its free or lower end being formed in the shape of a head I5, which very closely fits the 15 opening in the body portion from which it was pressed or sheared.

If desired to make this head I5 a tighter fit within the opening in the body portion, it may be dipped in some coating material such as rub- 0 her, and it should also be understood that the entire article may be enameled or otherwise colored, or made from colored material.

In the operation of the device, the tongue I4 is pressed outward toward the rear as shown in 25 Figure 2, and the stocking I6 is inserted between the tongue I4 and the body portion I0.

The tongue I 4 together with that portion of the stocking that covers the head I5, is now pressed through the opening in the body portion towards the front as shown in Figure 3, forming a button of the stocking material upon the head I5, and securing the stocking in a rigid manner, the downward pull upon the stocking drawing in the head towards the body portion and preventing the removal of the stocking.

To withdraw the stocking, the tongue I4 is pressed outward from the body portion thus releasing the stocking therefrom.

As shown in the modified form illustrated in Figure 5, should the device be required where great strain is encountered, the body portion may be enlarged, and two or more tongues provided, thus giving added gripping means.

In some cases it may be desirable to eliminate the webbing strap, and to accomplish this, the device may be made double ended as shown in Figure 6, the body portion being formed with two opposed tongues.

The head I5 of the tongue I4 is made to fit in the lower end of the opening from which it was sheared in such a tight relation, or by the addition of a coating, that to press the head through the opening the tongue I4 must be slightly bent by the operator to recede the head from the end of the opening, and due to its Wedge shape allow it to pass therethrough. It will be noted from Figure 1 that due to this tight fit that the stocking slightly laps over the sides or edges of the wedge-shaped opening thus preventing the head from passing through the opening until receded by the bending of the tongue.

Having thus described our invention, what we desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. A garment-fastener of the class described, comprising a single piece of resilient material spear-shaped at one end and formed with an attaching eye at the other end, a tongue struck from the body of said piece to form an opening in the spear-shaped end, and a head formed on said tongue providing a tight fit within the opening in the spear-shaped end.

2. A garment-fastener of the class described, comprising a single piece of sheet resilient material formed with an eye in one end thereof, and spear-shaped at the other end, a tongue struck from the body thereof to form an opening in the spear-shaped end, the free end of said tongue formed with a head adapted to fit the opening in the spear-shaped end in a tight manner, and a covering for said head.

3. A garment-fastener of the class described, comprising a spear-shaped single piece of resilient material having an eye for a mounting means, and a spear-shaped end, a tongue struck from said piece and attached thereto at one end adjacent the eye and forming an opening in the body of the piece, a head formed on the free end of the tongue of the same size as the opening in said piece, and a resilient covering on said head to allow the head covered with the resilient material, although larger than the opening, to be squeezed therethrough.

4. In a garment-fastener, a single piece of flat resilient material formed with a mounting eye at one end thereof, a tongue having a head formed on one end thereof and attached to and forming a part of the fastener and struck therefrom forming an opening therein, said head forming a tight joint with the sides of the material from which it was struck and requiring that said tongue be bowed to allow the head to pass through the opening.

5. In a garment-fastener, comprising a single piece of resilient material formed with a mounting eye at one end thereof and pointed at the other end thereof, an opening formed in said piece having a wedge-shaped end, a tongue having one end integral with said piece, and a head formed on the other end forming a tight fit with the wedge-shaped end of the opening and having to be receded by imparting a bending movement thereto before being free to pass therethrough.
