IW. M. WHITING. Belt Clasp No. 243,480.

`Patenti/d June 28,188I.

UNITED STATES PATENTl OFFICE.

WILLIAM M. WHITING, 0E ELIZABETH, NEW JEEsEY,Ass1GNoE To RACHEL L. wHrrrNe, or sAME PLAGE.

BELTwCLASP.

I SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 243,480, dated June 28, 1881.

l I Application led November 15, 1880. (Nonodel.)

To all whomt't may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM IVLWHITING, of Elizabeth, in the county of' Union and State of New Jersey, have invented an Improvement in Belt-Clasps, of' which the 'following is a specification.

In Letters Patent granted to me September 21, 1880, N o. 232,428, a metal tube is described for connecting the ends of round belts, the same being compressed near the ends to form an inward rib that grasps the belt near the ends. In this character of tubular clasp diiiculty arises in introducing the end of the round belt into the tube, because the tube is parallel throughout, and after the clasp has been applied the end of the tube is liable to cut the leather of the belt because it forms a square or sharp end that is in contact with the belt.

My present invention is made for removing these diculties; and it consists in a tubular clasp for round belts, having the ends slightly spread or bell-mouthed, so that the ends of the belt are easily inserted into the tube, and are pressed therein endwise, and hence will tit tightly before the inward rib is made in the tubular clasp. Furthermore, the inward rib is not at the end of the tube', but a small distance from the bell-mouthed end, so that there is no sharp angle in contact with the material composing the belt; hence it is not liable to be cut thereby when in use.

AIn the drawings, Figure 1 is a section of the belt and clasp, of about the ordinary size. Fig. 2 is a section, in larger size, of the tubular clasp a., having the bell-mouthed ends b b, for the reception of the ends c of the round belt, of leather or similar material, such as rawhide or catgut, and showing by dotted lines the position of the pinchers. Fig. 3/ represents the outside of the tubular clasp after the same has been secured upon the ends of the beltI by the external grooves and inward ribs, e, being compressed into the same, as in my aforesaid patent, with the exception that the bell-mouthed ends b b are allowed to remain, for the purposes aforesaid, instead of the extreme ends of the tube being pressed in. Fig. 4 is a side view of the pinchers employed by lne; and Fig. 5 is a face view of one of the jaws, and Fig. 6 a side view, both of which latter figures are of a size corresponding to the clasp in Figs. 2 and 3.

In using the pinchers shown in my aforesaid patent, I have found that the sharp edges of the semicircnlar recesses are liable to :nip and injure both the belt and the metal clasp. I therefore make these recesses semi-ellipses, with the corners and edges rounded,as shown, so that the pressure can lbe more easily applied to the belt in producing the peripheral compressions therein near the ends without nipping the material, and also the groovesean be compressed in the metallic tubular clasps with facility without the risk of injuring 'the metal.

In- Figs. 4, 5, and 6 thepinchers have handles h k and jaws lm; and o o are the semip elliptical recesses, with rounded edges at 2, for compressing the belt near the ends, and s s are the semi-elliptical recesses, with rounded edges and with ribs s,for compressing the sheet-metal tubular clasps around the ends of the belt, and forming therein the grooves and interior ribs for holding the belt.

It will be apparent that the bell-mouthed ends pass slightly beyond the peripheral grooves that are compressed into the belt, 'and Y- that when the peripheral grooves are compressed into the sheet-metal tube the bellmouthed ends remain, and the metalis forced inwardly into the previously-formed grooves, the pinchers having the corners rounded off, so as not to compress the bell-mouthed ends.

` I am aware that rings have been made with the ends flaring; but they were not of asize or shape adapted to the clasp fora leatherbelt. My tubular clasp, with both ends ilaring,is of a length equal to at least twice its diameter, in order that it may receive sucient ofthe ends of the round belt to allow them to be secured firmly. y A

I claim as my invention- 1. As a clasp for connectingy the ends of round belts, a metal tube havingboth of its ends bell-mouthed and of' a length adapted to clasps, formed with elliptical recesses with ribs 1o receive and secure the ends of' the belt, as set and rounded corners, as and for the purposes forth. l set forth.

2. In combinationv with around belt, a metal Signed by me this 6th day of November, A. tubular clasp having bell-mouthed ends and D. 1880.

inward peripheral ribs near the ends that WM. M. WHITING. grasp the material of the belt near its ends, Witnesses: substantialbT as set forth. HAROLD SERRELL,

3. The pinohers for applying the tubular belt- WILLIAM G. MOTT.
