BRACELET.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 247,876, dated October 4, 1881.
' Application filed July 27,1881. (No model.)
.To all whom tt may concern:
Be it known that; I, E. JOHN 111. BECKER, of New York, in the county and State of New York, have invented certainnew and useful Improvements in Bracelets and like articles, of which the following is'a specification.
These improvements relate particularly to I bracelets which are composed of twoparts,
the parts of which, after being opened, will automatically close and will, under ordinary circumstances, remain closed. I
In the accompanying drawings, Figure- 1 is a side view of a bracelet embodying my improvements, and shown as closed. Fig. 2 is a side view of the same open. Fig. 3 is a transverse section of the bracelet, taken on the line so a", Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a sectional edge View of a portion thereof, on a larger scale, taken on the line 3 y, Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a sectional edge view of portions, of the meeting ends of the two parts of said bracelet. Fig. 6 is a perspective view of a modified form of bracelet embodying my improvements. Fig. 7 is a perspective view of another modified form of bra celet embodying the improvements. 'Fig. 8 is a transverse section of the latter bracelet; and Fig. 9 is a sectional edge view of the meeting ends of the two parts of the latter bracelet.
Similar letters of reference designate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Referring first to Figs. 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, it will be seen that the bracelet there represented is composed of two parts, A and B, which are hinged together at one end and made to close at their other ends by the resilience of the sections of which they are composed. Each part is composed of a comparatively thick and stifi section, a, and two thinner resilient section s, 1), arranged one on each side of the section a. The
sections a of the two parts are not directly con- 'nected together; but the thinner resilient sections 1), of the part B are pivoted or hinged to the section a of the part A, and thus the two parts A and B are connected together. It is important to observe that the resilient sections 1) of the part B are pivoted to the section a of the part A, one forward of the other, hence when the parts A B are swung apart, or, ill other words, opened, the sections b are spread apart, one forward and the other backward of the section a of the part B. The resilience of the sections 11 of the part B causes them to tend to assume their normal positions, side by side, and this effects the closin gor bringing together of the free ends of the parts A B of the bracelet. It is obvious that the parts of the bracelet themselves are made to form a spring or springs for closing the free ends of, the two parts of the bracelet, and that no independent spring is used or is necessary.
Referring now to Fig. 6, it will be seen that each part A B of the bracelet there shown is made of two sections, 0 d, of spring or resilient material, and that the two portions 0 d of the two parts A B are pivoted or hinged together at difierent points in the length of the bracelet. It is obviousthat on swinging apart the free ends of the parts A B of this bracelet the sections 0 d are deflected ill different directions, and th ough their resilience tend to bring the free endsof the parts A B together again.
Referring now to Figs. 7, 8, and 9, it will be seen that the part A is made of a solid piece of metal or other suitable material, and that the part B is split for a portion of its length.
These split sections 0 f are resilient, and are pivoted or hinged to the part A at different points in the length of the bracelet. When the parts A B are swung apart the split sections are deflected in different directions, and
their tendency to come together effects the return of the parts A B to their normal position. All these bracelets which I have described may be made rial.
It is obvious that by my improvements I disof metal or other suitable mate- IOO prises two sections, either or both being resilient, and which are pivoted or hinged to the other part at different positions in the length of the bracelet, substantially as specified.
2. The combination, in a bracelet or analogons article, of two parts, one of which comprises t-wo resilient sections, which are pivoted or hinged to the other part at different positions in the length of the bracelet, substantially as specified.
