Application August 20, 1945, Serial No. 611,458 2 Claims. (01. 224. 28)

This invention relates to an article holding device especially adapted to be used by beauty shop operators for holding various articles employed in hair dressing upon the wrist of the user in such a manner that they are readily available when needed and may be readily removed from the said article-holding device as and when required.

In the operation of dressing a womans hair a number of different articles are employed and among these are hair curlers, a comb, and numerous hair pins. It has been common practice heretofore for beauty shop operators to allow the aforesaid articles used in the operation of dressing a womans hair to remain loosely scattered and the misplacing of these articles and the finding of the same when needed results in considerable loss of time and annoyance to the operator.

This is especially true with reference to hair pins of which a substantial number are employ-ed in the operation of dressing a womans hair.

Accordingly, an obect of the present invention is to provide a simple and inexpensive articleholding device by means of which the aforesaid various obects employed in dressing a womans hair may be det-achably mounted upon the new article-holding device carried on one wrist of the user so as to be readily available as and when required for use, thereby expediting the hair dressing operation and saving time and annoyance.

Other and further objects of the present invention will be apparent from the following description and claims and are illustrated in the accompanying drawings which, by way of illustration,

show a preferred embodiment of the invention and the principles thereof and what we now consider to be the best mode in which we have contemplated applying those principles. Other embodiments of the invention embodying the same or equivalent principles may be used and structural changes may be made as desired by those skilled in the art without departing from the present invention and the purview of the appended claims.

In the drawings,

Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing a preferred form of the new article holding device in position of use;

Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the new article holding device with the wrist band or strap in extended or open position; and

Fig. 3 is a transverse vertical sectional view on line 3-3 in Fig. 2 showing the various articles 2 carried by the new article-holding device in full line.

A preferred embodiment of the new articleholding device is illustrated in the drawing, wherein it is generally indicated at i ii, and com-- prises an article holding member, generally in.- dicated at ll, and means generally indicated at I2 for detachably attaching the said article holding member H upon the wrist of the user, as indicated in Fig. l.

The new article-holding member H is preferably made of a strip of flatresilient spring steel or other metal or other material suitably formed and shaped to provide an article holding arm l3, a pair of centrally arranged article-holding or clamping jaws l5- l and an article-holding arm :8. As shown in the drawings, the article-holding arm I3 is integrally connected to the clamping jaw l 5 by means of an interconnecting portion or web l4 and the clamping jaw i6 is integrally connected to the article-holding arm l8 by an interconnecting portion or web H. The member ll also includes an intermediate attaching portion it which extends between and interconnects the two centrally arranged clamping jaws l5 and Hi.

The attaching portion l9 of the article-holding member H is connected, by arivet or other suitable fastening element 2 l, to a stiffening plate or disc 20, which is preferably made of metal, and

this stiffening plate or disc 252 is likewise centrally attached, by the fastening element H, to a flexible wrist band or strap 22 which forms a part of the attaching means H2. The wrist band or strap 22 has an enlarged central portion 23 which is shaped to fit the stiffening plate or disc 20 and is attached thereto on the bottom side of the latter in any suitable manner as by means of an adhesive or the like.

One end portion of the wrist band or strap 22 is provided with a conventional buckle 24 embodying a tongue 25 and the other end portion of the wrist band or strap 22 is provided with spaced openings 26 for the reception of the buckle tongue 25.

In the use of the new article holding device the same may be readily attached upon the wrist of the user by inserting one end portion 21 of the strap 22 into the buckle 24 with the buckle tongue 25 projecting into a selected opening 26, as is, of course, readily apparent. When thus applied in position of use upon the wrist of the wearer, the new article-holding device may be employed to hold various articles used by beauty shop operators and certain of such articles are shown in the drawing as being detachably mounted thereon.

Thus, for example, a hair curler 28 may be mounted on the arm 13 of the new article-holding device by slipping the same into position thereon, whereupon the spring tension on the clamping jaw 35 of the hair curler 28, due to the action of the spring embodied therein, (but not shown) will urge the said clamping jaw 35 of the curler 28 relative to the body 36 thereof, into releasable clamping engagement with the arm I3 of the new article-holding device. Hence when the hair curler 28 is needed by the operator it may readily be removed from the arm l3 of the new articleholding device by withdrawing it upwardly from its position on the arm I3.

As shown in the drawing, a hair comb, indicated at 29, may be detachably mounted between the centrally arranged resilient clamping jaws l5 and Hi and may be readily inserted into position between the two said jaws I5 and [6 by slipping it downwardly between the same so as to spread these jaws slightly against the force of their own resiliency and which is enhanced by the formation of the curved interconnecting parts It and i9. Thus when needed, the comb 29 may be readily removed from the new article-holding device by simply pulling it upwardly out of position between the centrally arranged clamping jaws l5 and I6 which will thereupon be urged back together under the force of their own resiliency.

As shown in the drawing, the supporting arm i8 is shaped in a generally circular form to hold a hair pin cushion 30 mounted thereon and which is adapted to support hair pins 3! which are thus made readily available for use as and when required.

The hair pin cushion 3!) may be inserted upwardly into position on the curved arm I8 through the open mouth or throat 33 provided at the bottom of the curved arm l8and when thus disposed will be held by the curved form of the arm I8. However, since the arm I8 is relatively narrow it does not interfere with the operation of inserting the hair pins 34 into the body of the cushion 39 or their removal therefrom.

The hair pin cushion 30 may be made of any suitable material which will hold hair pins 3| in upright position and to this end the cushion 30 may well be composed of a horsehair body having an open mesh fabric netting or cover 32 therearound through which the blunt arms of the hair pins 3! may pass in inserting the hair pins into the body of the cushion and removing them therefrom. Thus it will be seen that the hair pins 3i, like the curler 28 and the comb 29, are readily accessible at all times to the operator when needed and hence time and annoyance are saved.

It will thus be seen that the present invention provides a new article-holding device for use by beauty shop operators embodying means for holding various articles employed by a beauty shop operator in dressing womens hair, and thus has the desirable advantages and characteristics, and accomplishes its intended objects, including those hereinbefore pointed out and others which are inherent in the invention.

We claim:

1. An article-holding device adapted to be worn .upon the wrist of the wearer and including a flexible wrist-encircling member having a mounting plate attached thereto, a unitary article-holding member including a fastening portion arranged between the ends thereof and attached to the said mounting plate, the said article-holding member embodying a pair of resilient articleclamping jaws formed therein one at each side of the said fastening portion and normally urged toward each other under the force of their own resiliency so as to releasably clamp an article therebetween, the said unitary article-holding member embodying an article-holding arm formed therein as an integral extension of one of the said resilient article-clamping jaws, and the said article-holding member embodying another article-holding arm formed therein as an integral extension of the other one of the said resilient article-clamping jaws.

2. An article-holding device as defined in claim 1 in which the said integral extension of the said one of the said resilient article-clamping jaws extends upwardly and in which the said integral extension of the other one of the said resilient article-clamping jaws is curved to form a substantially inverted U-shaped article-holding arm.
