HANDLE FOR VARIOUS ARTICLES Filed Feb. 2, 1937 Patented Dec. 6, 1938 UNlTED STATES HANDLE FOR VARIOUS ARTICLES Ralph C. Bangs, Providence, R. I., assignor to- Coro-Gram, Inc., New York, N. Y., a. corporation of New York Application February 2, 1937, Serial No. 123,613

5 Claims.

My invention relates to improvements in handles for tooth brushes, hair brushes and the like.

One of the objects of my invention is to provide a new and novel handle for various articles such as tooth brushes, hair brushes, boudoir articles and the like, said handle having an initial or other ornamental design member associated therewith.

Another object of my invention is to provide a combination handle and initial member which is attractive in appearance, of special use in identifying the owner of the tooth brush, hair brush or the like, extremely simple in construction and which is economical to manufacture and easily assembled.

Another object of my invention is to provide a handle composed of a relatively elastic material which can be molded into shape, said handle having a recess in one side thereof, so that an initial or other ornamental design member can be snapped into said recess and be securely held in position by a frictional flt.

Other objects of my invention will be set forth in the following description and drawing which illustrate preferred embodiments thereof, it being understood that the above statement of the objects of my invention is intended generally to explain the same without limiting it in any manner.

Fig. 1 is a side elevation of a tooth brush, showing an initial member applied to the handle of said tooth brush.

Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view of Fig. 1.'

Fig. 3 is a partial sectional view taken along the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary enlarged bottom plan view of a portion of the handle of the tooth brush.

Fig. 5 is a sectional view on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4.

Fig. 6 is a plan view of a hair brush showing the invention.

Referring to Fig. 1, this shows a tooth brush handle I, having the usual hole 2 by which the tooth brush may be suspended. Said handle I can be made of any suitable material, such as the materials commonly used for the manufacture of the body of the tooth brush. I prefer to use Celluloid, or any relatively elastic material which can be molded or the like.

As shown in Fig. 5, the underside of the handle I is provided with a recess or cut-out portion 3. The base or inner face of said recess 3 is provided with a groove or channel 4. Said groove 4 is, in effect, an elongation of the longitudinal wall of recess 3, along the longitudinal axis of said recess. While I have shown the recess 3 on the underside or bottom face of said handle I, it is immaterial whether the recess is formed on the upper side or underside of said handle. Furthermore, said recess 3 may be formed at any portion of the handle although I prefer to provide the recess near the end of the handle, adjacent the hole 2 as illustrated by the drawing herein.

The initial member 5 which is illustrated in Figs. 2 and 3 as applied to the handle I, can be stamped out of any thin metal or other suitable material, and this member is embossed or otherwise treated, so as to form an initial 6 or any suitable ornamental design or the like.

As shown in Fig. 3, the initial member 5 is provided with a peripheral wall 1. While I have shown said wall or flange as continuous, the construction of said wall may be in the form of depending lugs or in sections or the like.

The normal diameter of the initial member 5, when it is exterior to recess 3 is greater than the diameter of the longitudinal wall of the recess 3.

In order to apply the initial member 5 to the handle I, said initial member is snapped into the recess 3. The wall I of initial member 5 yields sufficiently to enable the oversized member 5 to be snapped into position. Upon applying sufficient pressure, the peripheral wall or flange I is moved into contact with the vertical wall of the recess 3 and the free end of said wall is moved into the groove 4. The initial member 5 is securely held in position by a frictional or force" fit between the longitudinal wall of the recess 3 and the walls of groove 4, and the peripheral wall I of the initial member 5.

The initial member 5 can be removed from the recess 3 by inserting a pin P or other tool of small diameter through a hole 8 which is provided in the side of the handle I opposite the side in which the recess 3 is located. Said hole 8 communicates with said recess 3. The manner in which the pin P is inserted into the hole 8, in order to remove the initial member 5 from said recess 3, is illustrated by Fig, 3.

The outer surface of the initial member 5 may be flush with the outer end of the wall of the recess 3, or it may project above or be located below the outer end of the wall of said recess.

While I have shown my invention as applied to a tooth brush handle, I do not wish to be limited in this respect and the invention may be applied to handles of numerous objects and articles, said ill) lit

handles being formed of a relatively elastic moldable material or the like.

My invention is particularly useful in connection with tooth brushes as these brushes may be properly identified by the users thereof by the initial which will correspond with the first initial of the name of the user. At present, tooth brushes are differentiated by various members of a household, for example, by the colors of the tooth brush body. It is apparent that with the use of my invention such an uncertain practice will be obviated by my definite, novel and ornamental combination.

I do not wish to be limited to any particular form or shape of recess nor to any particular form, style or shape of initial member.

I have shown preferred, embodiments of my invention, but it is clear that numerous changes and omissions can be made without departing from its spirit.

Iclaim:

1. In combination, a handle having a recess in one side thereof and a hole in the opposite side thereof, said hole communicating with said recess, the inner wall of said recess having a groove at its periphery, an initial member removably held in said recess, said initial member having a peripheral wall shaped to abut the longitudinal wall of said recess and to abut the walls of said groove.

2. In combination, a handle having a recess in one side thereof and a hole in the opposite side thereof, said hole communicating with said recess, the inner wall of said recess having a grooveat its periphery, an initial member removably held in said recess, said initial member having a flange shaped to abut the longitudinal wall of said recess and to abut the inner walls of said groove, the normal diameter of said initial member being greater than the diameter of the longitudinal wall of said recess.

3. In combination, a handle having a recess in one side thereof and a hole in the other side of said handle opposite said recess, said hole opening into said recess, the inner wall of said recess having a groove at its periphery, an initial member removably held in said recess, said initial member having a peripheral wall shaped to abut the vertical wall of said recess and substantially to fill said groove, the hole in said handle being shaped to receive a tool whereby said initial member may be removed from said recess,

4. In combination, a handle formed of a relatively elastic moldable material, said handle having a recess in one side thereof and a hole in the opposite side thereof, said hole opening into said recess, the inner wall of said recess having a groove at its periphery, an initial member having a peripheral wall shaped to be snapped into said recess and to enter and to fit in said groove and securely held in said recess by a frictional fit.

5. In combination, a handle formed of a relatively elastic moldable material, said handle having a recess in one side thereof and a hole in the opposite side thereof, said hole opening into said recess, the inner Wall of said recess having a, groove at its periphery, an initial member having a peripheral wall'shaped to abut the vertical Wall of said recess and substantially to fill said groove, said groove being an axial elongation of the longitudinal wall of said recess.
