8 Claims. (Cl. 36-2) The present invention relates to gaiters or be worked in the fabric projecting from the spats and has for its object to produce va gaiter heads forwardly, as indicated in Fig. 1.

The free ends of the straps 8 are held together To the above ends theinvention consists of the by the clamping disks I2 and I3 by which the l5 improved gaiter and the devices and combina-` ball members are secured thereto. Between the tions of devices as shown in the drawing and as free ends of the elastic connections is a reinforchereinafter described and claimed. .i ing metallic plate I4 through which passes the The invention is shown in the accompanying shank of the ball members of the fastening. As

The row of 4,- referred to as the under ap. metal loops I6 are pos1tioned rearwardly with The upper flap I will be provided with a row of relation to the row of slots I5 so that the elastic fastening members 3 permanently affixed thereto connections 8 when not under tension willpermit by the flanges 4 and the heads 5, the fabric cf the projection of the forward ends carrying the the flap I being provided with apertures to ball members normally to a point within the 50 receive the socket members.

ventional gaiter, imitation button holes 6 may The arrangement 1s such that when the fas- 55 tening members are engaged, as shown in Fig. 4, the ball members and extensible elastic straps will be covered by the upper flap I, the socket members being so disposed with relation to the edge of the upper flap I that the desired elastic play or stretch of the elastic connections 8 may be effected without moving the ilap I a sufficient distance to expose any part of the fastenings or connections carried by the flap 2. Preferably the under surface of the flap 2 will lbe provided with a pocket I9 formed by a strip of material 20 stitched along one edge as indicated at 2|, and at its upper and lower edge as indicated at 22, with the inner edge 23 free, thus forming an effective covering for the under surface of the attachments and fastening members `carried by the under flap 2, while at the 4same time .permitting access to the detachable hooks and 'loops by which the elastic connections 8 are-Sheld in place.

The under surface of theupper flap I may, if desired, carry a flexible reinforcement 24 through which `the socket members are passed and clamped and, if desired, a stay 25 may also be employed Vto secure the reinforcement 24 adjacent the edge of the overlapping ap I. The gaiter will of course be provided with any usual form of arch strap 26 passing under the foot in the usual manner.

In use the upper flap I will be brought over the edge of the under flap 2 and the ball and socket members of the fastenings will be snapped and coupled in the usual manner and, as before explained, the fastening of 'the overlapping aps of the gaiter will conceal all parts of the fastenings excepting the heads'` 5 of the socket members which will be exposed on the outer surface of the nap I to simulate buttons. In uncoupling the members it is only necessary to take holdof the outer ap I near the top, and vpull forward thereon. This will disconnect the ball and socket fastenings and thatrresult is greatly facilitated by reason of the plates I 4 whichas before stated, act as fulcrums and provide considerable yleverage, resisting the bending movement of the ball members which might result from the forcing forwardly of the edge of the iiap- I, thus causing the ball members to snap out of the socket members rather freely under the strain imparted .to the edge of the upper flap I. The arrangement of course forms a secure but yielding connection and one in which independent ball members may be removed and 4replaced' as required, either for cleaning the gaiter or for inserting new elastic connections, and while they are each free to yield under the stress produced by the bending of the ankle while walking, nevertheless the .character of the fastenings will be effectually covered and hidden by the overlapping outer flap.
