C. W. FINK PISTOL HOLSTER July 28, 1936.

Filed Oct. 4, 1935 ATTO RN EY.

Patented July 28, 1936 i gumreo STATES PATENT OFFICE PISTOL' HOLSTER Clyde W.'Fink','Kansas City, Mo. Application October 4, 1935, SerialNo. 43,568 5 Claims. (o1. 224-g My invention relates in general to pistol holsters and more particularly to means whereby said holster may be readily attached to or removed from a belt without necessitating removal of the latter from about-the person. t

In carrying out the invention I provide simple andinexpensive means whereby the holster may. beatta'ched to the belt such manner that there'shall be no liabilityfof the holster be- 10 coming accidentally detached from said belt, al-

though'the holster may be manually removed when desired.

In order that the invention may be fully understood, reference will now be had to the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 shows a pistol holster embodying my invention and attached to a belt adapted to be worn around the body of a person in the usual manner.

Fig. 2 shows the holster removed from the belt.

Fig. 3 is a front elevation of the holster attached to the belt which is shown in cross section.

Referring in detail and by reference characters to the drawing, which illustrates a preferred embodiment of my invention, A designates the holster which may be of any ordinary or preferred type including a body B conforming in shape to the usual revolver or pistol (not shown) and formed preferably of a section of leather or other suitable material doubled upon itself, as at 2, to provide front and back walls 4 and 6, respectively, which in turn are secured together along their edge by suitable means such as stitching 8. 7

Referring now more particularly to the means whereby the holster A may be attached to or removed from the belt C without necessitating removal of the latter from around the waist 40 of the wearer, l designates a tongue made of leather or other suitable material and permanently secured at its lower end to the back wall 6 of the holster by suitable means such as stitches l2. The upper free end of the tongue I0 is provided at each end with a laterally projecting shoulder l4 and is reinforced by a transverse shoulder I6 secured by suitable means such as stitches I8 to the faces of the tongue I0 and the shoulders [4.

. 20 designates a retaining member consisting of leather or other flexible material comprising end portions 22, 22a, and a relatively wide central portion 24 which is permanently secured to the-upper portion of the rear walls 6 of the hol- 55 ster by suitable means such as stitches 26 and staples 28. The end portion 22 is provided with a snap socket 30 adapted to receive a snap button 32 secured to the end portion 2241,.

In practice the holster A may be attached to thebelt .0 without necessitating removal of the latter from the person by slipping the tongue l8 upwardly between the person and the inner surface of the belt C, which operation presents the back'wall 6 of the holster against the front surface of said belt. The end portions 22 and 22a 10 of the retaining member 20 are then brought forwardly beneath the respective shoulders I4 and folded over the free end of the tongue [0 where they are reliably secured by pressing the button 32 into the socket 30. When folding the end portions 22 and 22a as stated the end portion 22a is brought beneath the shoulder l6 so that the weight of the holster A and the pistol adapted to be carried thereby will, through the intermediary of the shoulders l4 and I6, exert a downward pressure upon the end portions 22, 22a, and the snap fastener so that there will be no tendency to open the latter and thus permit the end portions 22, 22a, to release the tongue 10.

When the tongue [0 is held in place by the retaining member 20 as stated the central wide portion 24 of said retaining member provides a bearing surface for the adjacent upper rear portion of the tongue so that the latter can not move towards the back wall 6 of the holster and thus permit the shoulder Hi to become disengaged from the upper surface of the end portion 22a, but, on the contrary will cooperate with the end portions 22, 22a, in reliably holding the upper end of the tongue ID from movement in any direction.

In order to remove the holster A from the belt C it is only necessary to withdraw the button 32 from the socket and unfold the end portions 22, 22a so that the holster A may be slipped downwardly until the upper end of the tongue l0 passes below the lower edge of the belt C.

From the foregoing description it is apparent that I have provided a holster with fastening means having the advantages above pointed out, and while I have shown one form of such fastening means I reserve all rights to such other forms and modifications thereof as properly fall within the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. In combination'with a holster, a tongue secured at one end to one side of said holster and free at its other end to admit a belt between it and the holster, a laterally extending shoulder on the 7 upon the belt, be passed beneath said shoulder free end of said tongue, means secured intermediate its ends to the holster adapted to rest and have its ends folded over the tongue to coact therewith in removably holding the holster on the belt, and a fastening device detachably connecting the ends of said means so that the free end of the tongue may be released preparatory to ree moving the'holster from the belt.

2. In combination witha holster, a tongue se-' cured at one end to. one side of said .holster and free at its other end to admit a belt between it and the holster, laterally extending shoulders Ollfjia the free end of said tongue, means secured intermediate its ends to the holster adapted to rest upon the belt, be passed beneath said shouldersand have its ends folded over the tongue to coact therewith in removably holding the holster on the belt, and fastening means detachably connecting the ends of the first-mentioned means so that/the free end ofthe tongue may be releasedpreparaitory to 'removing the holster from-the belt.

3. In combination with a holster,'a tongue secureclat'one end to'one side of said holster and the ho'lsterifro n' the belt.

4. In combination with a holster, a tongue secured at its lower end to one side of said holster and free at its upper end to admit a belt between it and'the holster, laterally extending shoulders on the free end of said tongue, a shoulder extending across the faces of the tongue and said laterally extending shoulders, and means secured to the same side of the holsters; as said: tongue adapted to; pass beneath said shoulders -zdetachably embrace the tongue and coact therewith in sremoyably holding'the holsteron the belt.

5. In, combination with a holster, a tongue secured-at one end to one side of, said holster and adapted to admit a belt between itand the holster,
