I March 28, 1950/ L. K. BERGER COLLAR HOLDER HAVING ADJUSTABLE CLAMP MEMBERS Original Filed May 20, .1944
INVENTOR. LEDNARDKBRGER ATTORNEY Patented Mar. 28, 1950 COLLAR HOLDER HAVING ADJUSTABLE CLAMP MEMBERS Leonard K. Berger, New York, N. Y. Substituted for application Serial No. 535,443,
May 20, 1944.
1947, Serial No. 779,081
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a collar holder having adjustably mounted clamp members.
This is a substitute for my abandoned application, filed on May 1944, Serial Number 536,443.
More specifically, the invention is characterized by the construction of an initialled collar holder characterized by having a. tubular center piece and two initial carrying collar clamping members, at least one of which is removable from the tubular center piece.
A further object of this invention is to provide a collar holder as aforesaid in which both clamping members are removable from the center piece.
Still further it is proposed to provide a collar holder as aforesaid characterized by the clamping members being connectable with the center piece by a bayonet connection.
Still further, the invention has for an object the construction of collar clamping members in the center piece member and securing at least one clamping member therein by tits on one of the members fitting in sockets on the other of said members.
Still another object is to provide a collar holder as aforesaid adjustable in length.
For further comprehension of the invention,
- and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to theappended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawings forming a mate- I rial part of this disclosure:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a collar holder constructed in accordance with this invention.
Fig. 2 is an elevation of one collar clamping member before it is associated with the rest of the holder.

Fig. 6A is a perspective view of a collar holder embodying the center piece shown in Fig. 5 and twQclamp members in accordance with that shown in Fig. 6.
Fig. '7 is a fragmentary perspective view, partly in section, of a collar holder center piece constructed in accordance with a further modification of this invention.
Fig. 8 is a perspective view-of a. portion 01' a 2 Claims. (CI. 2481) This application October 10,
collar clamping means adapted to be associatedwith the center piece shown in Fig. 7.
Fig. 9 is a side elevation of a collar clamping member constructed in accordance with still ani other modification of this invention.
Fig. 10 is a perspective view of a collar holder center piece constructed in accordance with a further modification of this invention.
Fig. 11 is a perspective view of a portion of a collar clamping member adapted to be associated with the center piece of Fig. 10.
The collar holder according to the first form of the invention shown in Figs. 1 to 4, includes a hollow rectangular center piece It! and two collar clamping members H and I2 connected to the center piece. Center piece In is formed of thin sheet metal bent into shape and having its seam 13 at the bottom. If desired it may be made of seamless tubular stock.
Members II and 12 are similar in construction. Each includes a top substantially straight bar M. The bars M have initials I5 secured to the outer ends thereof by Welding or soldering. Each bar I4 continues into a bottom curved bar l6 ending in a loop l1 disposed adjacent but in slightly spaced relation from the bar 14 beneath the initial l5 secured thereto. Cine of the members II or 12 may be permanently secured in the center piece 10 or both may be removabl secured therein.
The hollow interior of the center pin I0 is substantially rectangular in cross section. Bars I4 and I6 are secured together at their ends disposed in the center piece, as by welding or soldering. The secured ends of the bars I 4 and I6 form a portion I8 rectangular in cross sect on and of a size to frictionally fit into the center piece l0.
\ The complete holder, as shown in Fig. 1, is adapted to bridge two parts of a shirt collar behind the knot of a necktie in a well known manner.
The collar holder is, as aforedescribed, formed of at least two separate parts. For instance, one part may be the member II and the other part may be the center piece Ill and the member l2 permanently secured'thereto. The reason for so constructing the holder is so that combinations of initials may be easily secured without delay by a. clerk of a store selling the holder to a customer. That is to say, if a person whose initials are N-B wishes to buy thecollar holder of the present invention with his initials thereon, the clerk, who has a large number of members similar to member II with initials thereon from A-Z, need only choose one with the initial N and similarly choose a center piece It with a member l2 having permanently secured thereto the initial B and put While it is contemplated that the portion I 8 will fitiwith a. squeeae fit in the: center piece so that it a will be secured therein, if desired "the center piece may be squeezed with a pair of pliers to firmly grip the portion l8, the slot l3 permitting this without deforming-the-eenter--piece. If both members I l and I2 are separate from' the center piece I0, each may be assembled therewith in the aforedescribed manner.
In the modification ofthe invention shown in Figs. 5, 6 and 6A, the construction otthe'collar holder is similar to that previously described except that the end portions l8 of the clamp members H and I22 are rounded andeach'has a bayonet joint pin l9 secured in the bottom *"facethereof." Thec'e'nter' piece It is. cylindrical and is provided with two series 'ofbayo'n'et joint -socke'ts 2ll-opening into the-open seam 13'1" This provides means "foi positively securingthe' eollar clamping members I l' and I2 tothe centerpiece;
-l"=,-and'also' means for selectively adjusting the length of" the collar holder'f" Ifdesired; the
sockets ze 'needonly be 'suppliedo'noneside of thecenterpiecathe collar'clar'nping member at theothcrside being permanently "secured to the center piece. In-other respects, the collar holder o f Figs. 5"and6 'is' similar to the collar holder of In the modification of the invention shown in FigsflY-Bjthe construction of the collar holder is similar to the collar holder of EigsJ1-4' except that'the center piece is provided with an "initial l5 representing the middle initial of a persons name and therefore it isconterripIated to the center piece. Furthermore 'th'e" sidewalls of the center piece l0" are providedwith two" series of recesses 2i adapted to coact with tits- 22* formecl'on the' collarclainping'iriember H" (Fig 8) for 'adj'ustablypositively securing' the 'collar clamping member in the centerpiece.
In Fig. 9 a collar clamping member 'llf' is" shown formed of one piece ofmetal bent into shape. In other respects it is similar to the collar clamping member H.
In'the modification of the invention shown in "Figs. 10 and llgthe construction of the collar holder is similar to the collarholder of Figs. 1-4
except that the centerpiece 10" is seamless and has two tits 23 formed in' its-"upper and lower faces for 'coaction with serrated grooves 24 formed intheupper and lower-"faces of ther'nem j'ustably secured. in the centenpiecef The 'other "collar "clamping' membe'r will""simila'rly" be sejcured in the center piece.
It is to be undefstoddthait the initials" l5',"|5',
'etc'.', may also be interchangeablyplaced on their corresponding bars 14. I
While I have illustrated'anddescribed the-pre- "'ferre'dembodiments of my inventionyit is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the "precise" constructions herein disclosed and the "right is reserved to all changes a'nd modifications coming within the scope of the invention as'de- "ned the appended claims.
; -Having thus "de's'cribed"my invention; what 1 claim as new, and desire to secure 'by'Unlted States Letters Patent is:
1. In a collar holder having a tubular center 1 piece andf separatelc'ollar clamping members,
' said clamping'members having end portions slidably and turnably extended into the ends of the center piece, means for adjustably removably --attachingthe-collar clamping members to the "tubular center piece, the tubular center piece being formed in one face along its length with a 'seam' which opens to the ends of the tubular piece,
in the tubular center piece being formed adjacent its ends with spaced sets of spaced slots in the ."'material' thereof to one side of said seam, and a pin projecting from one end of each of the collar clamping members, said slots being in communizs cation with said seam, whereby the ends of the lar* center piece; thetubular center' piece being clamping memberscarrying said pins maybe slid into the ends of the"center' piece with said pins sliding in said seam until sai' pins reach a posi- "tio'n alignedwith a' desired slot of each set of said slots -afterwhich the clamping members can be given a slight turn relative to the centerpiece in 'a"dire'ction to cause the pins to enter the slots with whichthey were aligned securing'the clamping members to the center piece.
2: In a collar holder having a'tubular center pieceand'sep'arate collar clamping members;said clamping members having end portions slidably "and'tur'nablyextended into the ends of the center piece, means fo'r'adjustably removably attaching the collar'clamping members to the tubucollar-clamping members, said slots being incomrminication "with said seam, whereby the ends of the clamping members carryingsaid'pins may be slidinto the ends" of the center piece'with said pins sliding in said seam until said pins reach a position aligned with a desired slot of e'ach'set of said slots after which the clamping "members can be given a slight -turn relative to the center piece in a direction to cause the pins 1 to enter the slot's'with which they were-aligned securingthe clamping members to the center piece, each of said slots being abayonet slot having an offset end extended parallel to said =iseam, said offset ends of the bayonet slots of each" set of slots being directed toward the'ad- 'j'acent' end of the: center piece, wherebythe clamping members may be slid longitudinally outward relative to the center piece to ca u'se the *pins 'toenter the offset ends of the bayonet 'slots after the clamping members havebeen'turned -rel'ative to the center piece.
