TIE FORM Filed Marqh 9, 1937 a, amen Mom Earle Gerfle/ f Patented, Sept; 28, 1937 I PATENT orrlce FORM I EarleGei-nert, Des Moinealowa v v Application March 9, 1937, Serial No. 129,876
5 claims. (01. 2 -153) This invention relates to improvements in gar-, ment forms and holders and pertains particularly to an improved tieform. v
The present invention has for its primary object to provide an improved and novel device designed to be used in-associationwith a four-inhand tie,-by means of which the tiemaybe formed in a knot without having a neck. loop portion formed in association therewith so that thetie. may be applied to-a collar easily and quicklywith the pre-formed knot in the desired position relative to the collar, the means associated with the pre-formed knot being such as to facilitate the securing of the tie in a loopabout theneck in simulation of the usual-four-in-hand tied necktie.
Another object of the invention is to provide a form for use in the making or forming of a 'four-in-hand knot which, after the knot has been formed, may be changed in shape or molded so as to make the knot in any shape or form desired.
A still further object of the invention is to pro-' vide aknot form of the character described wherein the knot will be permanently fashioned in the tie with the usual inner end thereof loose or detachable from the knot and wherein the said inner end may be slidably coupled with the knot after the tiehas been placed in a collar or about the neck, so that the finished article will form a perfect simulation of a four-in-hand tie applied in the usual manner.
The invention will be best understood from a consideration of the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification, with the understanding, however, that the invention is not confined to any strict conformity with the showing of the drawing but may be changed or modified so long as such changes or modifications mark no material departure from the salient features of the invention as expressed in the appended claims.
In the drawing:
Figure 1 is a view of a four-.in-hand tie fashioned about the knot forming device embodying the present invention and showing the inner end of the tie in the knot, the view comprising the rear side of the knot.
Fig. 2 is a sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken on the line 33 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a view in rear elevation of the knot form having the sides thereof bent in to assume the positions which they take in a formed tie knot.
Fig. 5 is a view in plan of the flattened out knot former.
Fig. 6 is a plan view of a modified form of the cated by the numeral l has a 'ing the numeral I generally designates the preferred form of the four-in-hand tie'knot former constituting the present invention. This former consists of a frame-like body of suitable soft metal which will stand considerable bending or deformation without breaking, and the frame has "a base portion or bar 2 from which extends upwardly in divergent relation the side bars 3 which have their top ends connected by the top cross bar 4. The top bar 4 is slightly concave adjacent one end as illustrated, the concavity extending inwardly toward the opposite bar 2 so that at the point of joinder between the bar 4 and one side bar 3 there is formed a shoulder 5 which is of a more pronounced character than the angular shoulder portion 6 at the opposite side of the frame.
In the central part of theframe is a tongue plate I which is integral at its lower edge with the bottom bar 2 and extends upwardly to within .a short distance of the top bar 4, and one side of this plate is formed to provide the downwardly extending parallel prong 8 which terminates at its lower end in one or more points 9. The side faces or bars 3 of the frame are provided in their outer edges with the spurs Ill and one of these side bars has a similar spur ll formed at its inner edgea These spurs are all directed downwardly or toward the bottom or base bar 2 of the former and serve to maintain an applied tie in position in the manner hereinafter pointed out.
In the modified form of the device illustrated in Fig. 6, the general configuration of the frame is the same as the frame illustrated in Fig. 5, but the center tongue or plate which is here indiside tongue l2 which terminates at its lower end H3 at a greater distance from the bottom bar 2 than the points 9 of the tongue 8 terminate with respect to the adjacent bar 2, and this side tongue [12 is provided with a pair of apertures l4 through which is extended a pin I5 which has its lower end pointed and disposed relatively close to the bar 2.
In the use of the present former, the necktie is disposed to extend across the frame or in substantially parallel relation with the bottom bar 2 thereof, and is inserted between the side bars 1 3 and the tongue I. The tie is arranged so that the inner side thereof will be disposed against the bars 3, or in other words, the front of the tie willbe toward the one holding it or placing it in position with the top edge of the tie thus disposed across the frame so that the wide outer end thereof will be at the right of the user, and the narrower end portion is carried forwardly and upwardly so as to effect the penetration of the adjacent spurs l0 and II thereinto, so thatthey will hold this end of the tie when it is pulled up across the outer side of the shoulder 6. The wide end of the tie body is then swung bars and side connecting bars in divergentrelaacross the opposite or front face of the plate and brought around behind the same across the bar 3 at the left side and is then carried obliquely upwardly across the top bar 4 and passed downwardly thru the horizontal front portion in the same manner that this end of the tie is handled when tying a four-in-hand knot. This front horizontal portion of the tie is indicated in Fig. 3 by the numeral l6 whereas the portion initially applied to the former and which passes between the plates I and the bars 3, is indicated by the numeral H. The part of the tie which leads from the former to the inner end thereof and which is initially carried upwardly obliquely across the front face to effect its engagement with the prongs l0 and II, is indicated by the numeral i8, and that part which is brought obliquely across the back of the former and carried down between the former and the transversely extending outer portion I6, is indicated by the numeral I9.
After forming the knot in the manner described over the former, pressure is applied to the side bars 3 in such a manner as to effect the bending transversely of the immediately adjacent portions of the bars 2 and 4'so that these side bars and the material of the tie which is in contact therewith, will be swung into spaced parallel relation with and behind the tongue 7. Due to the initial downwardly converging relation of the bars 3, this bending of the frame will form the knot in the desired form of an inverted cone and at the same time the prong or point carrying tongue 8 will be bent inwardly, as indicated at 20, so as to be enclosed in the area between the bars 3 and the transverse bars 2 and 4.
After forming the knot in the manner described, When the tie is to be put into use, it will be disposed within a collar in the usual manner so as to bring the knot in the desired position and the previously free inner end portion will be inserted between the spaced bars 3 and drawn down across the points 9 or, if the form of the device shown in Fig. 6 is in use, across the point of the pin I5, and thus held securely against withdrawal. tie can be tightened up around the neck to draw the knot up into the desired position relative to the collar and these holding prongs willmaintain the tie securely in position. t
It will also be obvious from the foregoing that the device may be readily applied to or removed from any tie so that after the tie has been worn the device may be taken 01! andthe tie kept in a condition which will materially prolong the life of the spine, whereas if the device were of the type that had to be permanently fixed to the tie, the latter would readily become wom'beitiause of its being constantly held in tied condi ion.
In bringing the front end portion of the tie acrossthe front of the former, the tie will be engaged with the prong III which is in the lower part of the outer edge of the right-hand bar 3 and thus held from slipping until the completed knot is formed.
What is claimed is: 1. A tie knot former, comprising a body in the form of a frame having spaced top and bottom tion from the, bottom to the top bars, a tie retaining tongue carried by the body 'between the side bars thereof and free at one end'to facilitate I It will be seen from-this that the inserting a tie between it and the side bars, the said side bars being positioned in a substantially common plane and spaced from the top and bottom bars when the body is in use, means carried by the'tongue for facilitating a sliding coupling of an end of a tie with the body, and means forming an integral part of each side bar for engaging and retaining in position a part of a tie lying thereover.
2. A tie knot former, comprising a frame-like body having spaced top and bottom bar portions and side bar portions coupling the top and bottom bars and arranged in diverging relation toward the top bar, a tie body securing tongue integral with the lower bar and extending the major portion of the area between the top and bottom bars and free of connection with the top bar to facilitate frictionally securing a tie transversely of the body between said tongue on one side and the side bars on the other, and means at one side of said tongue forming a tie body securing prong, said frame being of deformable material whereby said top and bottom bars may be bent to bring the side bars into edge opposed relation and in a plane spaced from and substantially parallel with said tongue.
3. A tie knot former comprising a frame having top and bottom spaced bars and connecting side bars arranged in divergent relation, the divergent ends of the side bars being coupled with said top bar, a tie body retaining tongue integral with the bottom bar and extending through the major portion of the area between the top and bottom bars, a pointed element carried by the tongue at one side edge thereof and directed toward said bottom bar, and spur-like 4. A tie knot former, comprising a frame having spaced top and bottom bars and connecting side bars, said side bars being in divergent relation from'the bottom to the top bar, a tongue carried by the bottom bar and extending through the major portion of the areabetween the top and bottom bars, an extension formed integral with one side edge of the tongue and projecting longitudinally thereof, and pointed means carried by said extension for effecting the retention of a detachable portion of an applied tie in a desired position, said frame being of a character to facilitate the-transverse bending of the top and bottom bars'to brlngthe side bars into substantially edge opposed relation.
5. A tie knot-former, comprising a flat body having two convergently related connected side bars, means'forming an integral part of the body between which and the said bars a tie body initially may be disposed to be frictionally held while being formed into a four-in-hand knot over the body,- said body beingv of a material facilitating the bending of the portions of'the body material connecting said side bars to position said bars in edge-opposed relation in a plane r to one side of said'tie holding means, an'd-meansf .7 70 Ziggy connectin'g'a freeend r the tie with the! carried by the'bodyfacllitating detachably slid?
