Description

y 1940. M, R. KISLINGBURY ET AL 7 CLOTHESPIN Filed Jan. 9, 1939 INVENTORS.

Patented July 30, 1940- UNITED STATES CLOTHESPIN Maud Handel Kislingbnry and Edna Emma Range, Alta, Iowa Application January 9, 1939, Serial No mans 1 Claim. (ct 24-44) The principal object of this invention is to provide a clothespin which may be attached to the clothes line by means independent of its jaw portions.

A further object of our invention is to provide a clothespin having resilient serrated jaw elements for securely gripping the clothes or like.

A still further object of this invention is to provide a clothespin which may be left permanently on a clothes line and the clothes clamped thereto on which may be attached to the clothes and then strung on the line.

A still further object of our invention is to provide a clothespin that is economical in manufacture, durable and efilcient in use.

These and other objects will be apparent to those skilled in the art.

Our invention consists in the construction, arrangement and combination of the various parts of the device, whereby the objects contemplated are attained as hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in our claim and illustrated in the accomp ny n drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of our clothespin ready for use.

i 2 is a side elevational view of our clothespin more fully illustrating its construction.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged cross sectional view of the clothespin taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1

Fig. 4 is an enlarged perspective view of the rubber jaw inserts used on our clothespin.

Fig. 5 is anenlarged side sectional view of a modified form of structure of our pin showing one of the clips stampedfrom the metal body of the clothespin.

Fig. 6 is a side view of our clothespin. using the modified form of structure shown in Fig. 5.

There are many types of ciothespins now on the market. With all of these types, however,

it is necessary to place the clothes on the line and then pin them to the line with the pin.

Also the pins must be completely removed from the line each time the clothes are removed. This is very unsatisfactory due .to the factthat it 5 is necessary to hold the pins in one hand while at the same time holding the clothes. This procedure increases the work attending the hanging of clothes and similaritems on a line. Furthermore, it is easy to drop the pins into the dirt and these clothespins are otherwise extremely unhandy. Wehave overcome such disadvantages as will behereinafter more fully set forth.

Referring to the drawing, we have used the numeral l0 to designate one of the channel frame members or jaw elements of our pin having integrally formed thereon a handle portion 1 II and ears I2 as shown in the drawing,

The numeral l3 designates a. similar channel frame member or jawelement having thereon a handle portion l4 and ears IS. The ears [5 are depressed so that they may fit adjacent the inner surfaces of the ears and the two arms are then held in pivotal alignment by a shaft IS in the usual manner. We have used the numeral ll to designate a spring coiled about the shaft l6 and having its end portions ll' bearing against 10 the inside of the handles H and H as shown by dotted lines in Fig. 1 of the drawing. The numerals I8 and I9 indicate two blocks of rubber'or other resilient material which are crimped into the channel members l0 and I3 respectively as shown in the drawing. These resilient blocks l8 and I 9 have their inner, adjacent faces serrated so as to'form a gripping surface as shown. We have used the numeral 20 to designate a spring clip element having one end rigidly secured to the handle portion II and its open end extending toward the channel jaw portions of the clothespin. The numeral 2| indicates a similar spring clip member rigidly secured to the handle member it. I have designated a clothes line or like by the numeral 22. Referring to Fig. 5 of the drawing, it will be noted that a clip 2! may be stamped from and integrally with the handle portion ll, thus reducing the number of parts necessary in the construction of the clothespin.

In practicaluse our clothespin is extremely versatile. Either of the clips Hand 2! may be clipped onto the clothes line and the user may 85 then slide the pin to the desired position. The handles H and H are "then pressed together so that the clothes may be clamped between the resilient faces l8 and iii. The pin may be left permanently on the line 22, may be strung on two parallel lines so that the pin is always in a 40 vertical position, or the pins may be clamped onto the clothing or like and then the clothespin clipped onto the line. For instance, the user may attach the goods to the clothes in the house and then it is only necessary to clip either of the clips 20 or 2! onto the line. These clothespins may be utilized in drying film, pictures, art

a clothespin that fulfills all of our objects and presents many more obvious advantages. Our clothespin is rugged, may be easily cleansed, is unbreakable and does not snag or injure clothes or the like.

Obviously, our clothespin may be constructed with but one of the clips thereon but for convenience and versatility, we have used two of the clips.

Some changes may be made in the construction and arrangement of our improved clothespin without departing from the real spirit and purpose of our invention, and it is our intention to cover by' our claim any modified forms of structure or use of mechanical equivalents which may be reasonably included within its scope.

We claim:

In a clothespin, an elongated channel frame member, a handle member integrally formed on one end of said channel frame member, a second elongated channel frame member, a handle member integrally formed on one end of said second channel frame member, ears integrally formed on each of said channel frame members, a means for pivotally securing the ears on said first and said'second mentioned channel frame members channel frame member, and clipping elements stamped and integrally formed from the center portions of each of said handle members.
