Description

HAIR CLIP Filed Feb. 8, 1936 INVENTOR.
ATTORNEY.
Patented Jan. 25, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 Claim.
This invention relates to appliances used in retaining the hair in the condition in which it has been dressed, such devices being called hair clasps or clips.
Such devices are usually made of metal, polished, plated, enamelled or otherwise finished.
It is therefore an object of the invention to provide a clip having its outer portion completely covered with natural hair, similar in color and shade to that of the hair of the wearer.
A further feature is in the provision of an easily operated catch whereby the clip may be firmly secured in operative position, and as readily removed when desired.
These and other advantageous objects are attained by the novel construction and arrangement of simple parts hereinafter described and shown in the annexed drawing, forming a material part of this disclosure, and in which:
Figure 1 is a partial plan view of one form of the clip as in clasped position.
Figure 2 is a side elevational view of the same.
Figure 3 is a similar view of the same in a free unclasped. position.
Figure 4 is a partial plan view of another form of the device as clasped.
Figure 5 is a side elevational view of the same.
Figure 6 is a like view of the same in a free position.
Figure 7 is another partial plan view of further modification in construction.
Figure 8 is a side elevational view thereof.
Figure 9 is a similar view showing the tongue member unclasped.
Figure 10 is a perspective view of a finished clip, its outer bar element being partially encased with a hair covering.
Ordinarily, hair clips are found difficult to clasp, and more difficult to unclasp, particularly by the wearer, who is obliged to work by touch rather than sight, a mirror not always being available or sufilcient light.
It is also regarded as objectionable to display a metal bar in the hair, as it is plainly distinguishable.
The present invention seeks to overcome these disadvantages by the production of a clip easy to affix or remove by contact with the fingers and which is capable of complete invisibility.
All the several devices shown in the drawing consist of a strip of spring material fashioned to present an inner bow-shaped member l5, preferably die struck to produce a central longitudinal reenforcing rib I6.
One end of this member is integrally connected by a U shaped bend I! to an outer member or clamp bar l8, corresponding in curvature with the inner member, but spaced from it so as to receive locks of hair therebetween.
The outer bar I8 is also shaped at its free end 5 to produce a generally hook-shaped bend or loop l9, and further formed, as in Figures 1 to 3, to constitute a catch, having a hump 20, a recess 2| and a protruding lip 22 directed towards the bar 18. 10 I The inner member [5 has a closely doubled end 23, smoothly rounded and adapted to be forcibly pressed past the hump 20 to seat in the recess 2| on the lip 22.
Obviously, a moderate pressure only is required to engage the ends of the clasp, and likewise, a slight outward pressure against the hump serves to liberate the inner member.
Figures 4 to 6 show the same general structure of the clip except at the clasp contacts. In this style the free end of the loop member I9 is struck to produce a narrow concave catch extending towards the opposite end of the bar, while the corresponding end 26 of the inner member I5 is reduced in width and shaped to suit the underside of the catch 25, being readily engaged or disengaged by a moderate lateral movement.
The variations seen in Figures 7 to 9 consist in forming the inner end of the bend l9 into a segment of a circle, as at 30, and making a sharp- 30 1y angled incision 3| in its end, the end 32 of the inner member [5 being shaped for engagement therein by direct pressure.
To release the catch it is only required to press the loop I9 outwardly whereupon the inner 35 member is released.
I In all these several clips the clamp bars l8 have fine serrations 35 on either or both its longitudinal edges, continuing to points midway the loops "+46; and are provided at their extremities with means as fine perforations 36 to secure the ends of a strand of hair 31, the same to be closely coiled around the bar It, forming a mask or covering 38 by which the bar is rendered substantially invisible, the wearers own hair being preferably used to wind upon the bar.
While certain preferred embodiments of this device have been shown and described, it will be understood that changes in the form, arrangements, proportions, sizes and details thereof may be made Without departing from the'scope of the invention as defined in the appended claim.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new and desired to secure by Letters Patent, is:-
enforcing rib on said inner member, serrations on both longitudinal edges of said outer member, a strand of hair closely coiled around said outer member to entirely cover it, said hair engaging in the serrations, and means to secure the ends of 5 said hair strands.
