UNIFORM CAP Filed Nov. 29, 194e Patented Sept. 28, 1948 UNITED S TAT ES PATENT OFFI CE 'UNIFORM `C'AP .Benjamin Lev, Chicago, iIll. Application November 29, 1946, Serial No. 712,824
'Li'.Claixns. l
This invention relates to a uniformcap having a frame whereon may be fitted a removable cover. More Y.particularly .the ,present improvements are concerned with the Ymeans whereby an fupstanding stay at .the :cap lfront is supportingly connected both to the frame and to the cover in a manner which is simple, dependable and releasable. It is an important object of my invention `to provide such a-connection in order to permit yfacile removal, Yor replacement, of the I.cover whenever desired.
My invention may advantageously be -em- 'fbodied in a construction such as is illustrated in the accompanying drawing wherein:
-Figure `1 'is a vfront velevational View of the present cap;
Fig. 2 is-a fragmentary vertical section, enlarged, through the front end of the cap, taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a view in perspective of one form of stay having at its upper end means for establishing my improved supporting connection with the cover that is to be united to the frame from which this stay is upwardly and .forwardly extended;
Fig. 4 is an enlarged detail in section, on line 4-4 of Fig. 2; and
Fig. 5 which is a View similar to Fig. 4 shows a modification in the construction of the cover means which cooperates with the stay to establish Itherebetween my improved releasable supporting connection.
The present cap may be conventional in that it comprises, in combination, a frame F with connected ends, made desirably of iiber or the like. This frame which may be fabric covered furnishes on its inner face -a mounting for a holder H in the form of a plate from which tines ID may be struck outwardly lto traverse the frame for clinching upon its outer face (see Fig. 2). In some such way as this the holder is secured firmly to the frame.
A pair of bars I I is also struck out to lie spaced from the holder plate to which they remain connected at their opposite ends. These bars which are disposed inwardly of the holder furnished a mounting for the lower end I2 of a stay S in the form of a strap which may he slidably secured to the inside of the bars against the inner face of the plate to extend upwardly of the frame. The stay is desirably offset at I4 to provide a stop in the form of an approximately horizontal ledge adapted to overlie and rest upon the frame top; and its upper end I5 thereabove is extended both forwardly and uptal-ien -duce weight Imay also provide in opposite ends of the stay a pair of elongated slots I`I,:as shown.
At a point 'just short `of the stay top there is provided a rearwardly extending arcuate hook l2-II 'terminating in a depending vear .2.I. This hook 'may be conveniently :formed 'from a tongue -a't the end -of `:the slot SI'I which 'is displaced Afor this purpose.
This hook-cooperates with means on the 4cover (presently tobe described) in estabilishing :a -releasable support therefor.
To the inside of the frame may be afxed the usual sweat band 25 which will conceal the presence of the holder plate. At or near the lower edge of the sweat band a visor 26 is secured, but this part of the cap construction forms no part of my invention, hence need not be further described. Arranged to iit around the cap frame, exteriorly thereof, is the band 30 of a cover C whose side 3=I at the top joins with a welt 32 extending peripherally of the usual tip 33 to which the wel-t is also secured. This cover which is removably iitted in place conceals the upwardly and forwardly extending upper end I5 of the stay whose top edge is adapted to enter between the side and welt at the point of juncture therebetween.
I provide a special supporting connection between the stay and cover. For this purpose there is affixed to the Vwelt at the front a fitting which may take the form of a yclip 35 having a pair of coacting jaws which are adapted to tightly engage opposite faces of the welt. Extending outwardly from the clip is a bar SIB formed into an elongated eye through which the hook 20 may be received. 'When so disposed, the top face of the hook is engaged by the welt so as to derive support therefrom. In this way the stay operates to support the entire front end of the cover whose welt is rested upon the arcuate upper face of the hook to distribute safely the thrust force that is encountered. Due to interfitting of the stay top edge within the angular space at the juncture of the welt and side, the supporting connection furnished by the stay will tend to remain undisturbed during normal use of the cap.
In Fig. 5 I have illustrated a modiiication in the construction of the fitting which coacts with the stay hook. Here an eye 40 is formed through the welt itself (without the use of any attached clip), much the same as a buttonhole through one or more plies of fabric material. Such an eye may optionally be reinforced around its periphery, as by stitching or otherwise. Its cooperation with the stay hook is the same as already described in connection with Fig. 4, the supporting fabric of the welt being movable, as required, to permit in and out movements of the complementary hook.
To remove the cover, its band 30 is slipped off of the cap frame, the stay being concurrently disengaged from its holder plate; the stay is then rotated around the welt-eye axis into a position of substantial engagement with the cover tip; at this point the hook tongue may be passed outwardly through the eye by properly manipulating the welt for this purpose, the stay being then disconnected from the cover, To replace, then entire operation is merely reversed.
I claim:
1. In a uniform cap, the combination of a frame, a cover fitted to the frame and freely removable therefrom, the cover comprising a tip and side and a welt at the inside juncture thereof, a fitting xedly secured to the welt at the front, and a front support extending upwardly from the frame in detachable connection therewith and in removable supporting connection with the welt tting whereby to support the cover at that point.
2. In a uniform cap, the combination of a frame, a cover removably fitted to the frame, the cover comprising a tip and side and a welt at the inside juncture thereof, and a front support extending upwardly from the frame to enter between the cover welt and side for sustaining the welt at that point and provided with sustaining means engaging the welt at a point spaced from the side whereby to support the cover at that point also.
3. In a uniform cap, the combination of a frame, a cover removably fitted to the frame, a stay extended upwardly from the frame, a welt secured to the cover interiorly thereof, and a hook and eye supporting connection between the welt and the stay at a point proximate to its upper end.
4. In aV uniform cap, the combination of a frame, a cover removably fitted to the frame, a welt secured to the cover interiorly thereof, a clip formed with an eye in gripping engagement with opposite faces of the welt, a stay extended upwardly from the frame for engagement with the welt and cover at a point removed from the eye, and means on the stay adapted both to traverse the clip eye and to supportingly engage the Welt at a point removed from the cover.
