Description

June 26, 1951 N. L. SOLOMON 2,558,225 CURL HOLDING DEVICE Filed March 17, 1949 ATTO R ZEY Patented June 26, 1951 UNITED STATES PAT ENT OFFICE 2,558,225 CURL HOLDINQIJEVICE Nathan L. Solomon, Englevgood, N. J. Application March 17, 194,9, S erial,No. 81,949
. 6 Claims. 132-48) Thisinvention relates to devices for holding, a
I flat-like curl of hair, usually referred to as a pin or sculpture curl. More particularly, the invention deals with a device of the character described fashioned from a strip of sheet material in such manner as to economize on the production of the resulting clip-like holder, and further to form a fingerpiece portion thereon, facilitating movement of the prong ends of the clip into open position for reception of the curl.
The novel features of the invention will be best understood from the following descriptions when taken together with the accompanying drawing, in which certain embodiments of the invention are disclosed, and in which the separate parts are designated by suitable reference characters .in each of the views, and in which:
Fig. 1 is a side view of a curl holding device made according to my invention.
Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1, indicatingthe operation of opening the device preparatory to placing a curl between the pronged ends thereof.
Fig 3 is a plan view of the device with a'curl supported thereby,
Fig. 4 is a section on the line 4-4 of Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is a plan view of the blank from which the device shown in Figs. 1 to 4 is formed.
Fig. 6 is a plan view of the device as seen in Fig. l and showing the folded blank.
Fig. 7 is a viewsimilar to Fig. 5 showing a modified form of construction; and
Fig. 8 is an enlarged detailed view of part of a blank as seen in Fig. 5, showing a modification.
In Figs. 1 to 6 inclusive, I have shown one form of curl holding device, which is fashioned from a blank It, Fig. 5, of a strip of sheet material, so as to form at one end of the blank, a pair. of prongs o fingers H spaced apart by arecess I2, and vat the other end of the blank, another prong or finger E3, the latter being disposed-centrally of the strip from which the blank is formed, or in other words would be shaped from the space I2 of a next successive blank fashioned from an elongated strip.
The prong or finger portions I I and I3 are spaced apart by a central body portion I4, which preferably has an elongated aperture l5 therein. It will appear from Fig. 5, that the outer edges is of the fingers or prongs M are continuous with and in alinement with corresponding edges of the body i i. In other words, these edges would define the width of the strip stock employed in forming the resulting device.
The device is preferably formed from a spring metal which may be tempered to give the desired tension Properties thereto. On the other hand, the device can be formed from certain types of plastics having inherent spring properties within the fiexure required to clamp a curl between the prong ends thereof, as later described.
After forming the blank HI, the body portion I4 is bent, to form a curved spring back or loop l1, note Fig.1, and said body portion and part of the finger or prong is being shaped to form offset wall portions l8 and ill, the latter forming a fingerpiece portionby means of which the device can be operated in the manner illustrated in Fig. 2 of the drawing.
In bending the blank, the finger or prong i3 is bent angularly to the wall portion i8 and disposed normally in an upwardly and outwardly inclined position with respect to the fingers H and this would constitute the normal position of the device. In use, pressure is applied to the fingerpiece [9 to pass the finger I 3 downwardly through the opening 12 to extend below the fingers II in the manner seen in Fig. 2 of the drawing, whereupon a flat pin or sculpture curl, such as seen at 2 ii, in Fig. 3, can be placed between the prongs l3 and I1, whereupon pressure on the device is released and. the prongs will automatically move toward each other gripping the curl therebetween in the manner indicated in Figs. 3 and 4 of the drawing. Both of these showings are diagrammatic to illustrate'a use of the device.
It will be apparent, however, that in some instances, the finger or prong end l3 may assume a position substantially in alinement with the prongs I I,.s0 as to form a slight curvature in the curl. This can 'bev controlled by relative spacing of adjacent edges of the prongs H and I3, one with respect to the other. After the curl has been-set, the holding device is readily removed by again applying pressure on the fingerpiece I9, in'the manner illustrated in Fig. 2.
In Fig. 7 of the drawing, I have shown a sli ht modification, in which a blank it, generally similar to' the blank I 0 is employed, but formed from wider "strip stock, so as to provide three prongs ll'f at one end and two prongs l3 at the opposit end, however, in the same general relationship .as [the formation of the prongs H and i3. With this construction, the central body M has two elongated apertures 15', instead of one. The device as seenin Fig. 7 provides a wider surface engagementwith a cur-l than with the structure as seen in Figs. 1 to 6 inclusive. With both forms of construction shown, the prongs can be strengthened and further characterized in the manner indicated in part, in Fig. 8 of the draw-.
3 ing. Here to illustrate this modification, it has been shown applied to part of a blank of the general form seen in Fig. 5. Here a blank 10" is provided, which has the same prong end construction as the blank Ill. However, the prong ends, for example, the two prong ends defined by the double prongs 2!, are strengthened and reinforced by a longitudinal corrugation 22 in the prongs, and preferably extending to a slight extent onto the central body portion 23, as indicated at 24, but it is also preferred that the corrugated portions will have longitudinally spaced vent apertures 25 to facilitate drying of the curl.
Considering the general arrangement, as seen in Fig. 2 of the drawing, it will be preferred that the corrugation on the double prongs or fingers 2| extend at the lower surface thereof and on the associated finger, not shown, on the upper surface thereof.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A curl holder device of the character described comprising a unitary strip-likebody of predetermined width having prongend portions, said prong end portions being joined by a centrally apertured spring loop normally tensioned to maintain the prong ends in diverging relationship to each other, said loop being of a width common to the greatest width of said body one prong end being offset with respect to the loop portion thereof and adapted to pass through the other prong end in gripping a curl between the upper surface of the first named prong end and the lower surface of the other prong end of the device, the prongs of said device having longitudinal corrugations.
2. A curl holder device of the character described comprising a unitary strip-like body of predetermined width having prong end portions, said prong end portions being joined by a centrally apertured spring loop normally tensioned to maintain the prong ends in diverging relationship to each other, said loop being of a width common to the greatest width of said body one prong end being offset with respect to the loop portion thereof and adapted to pass through the other prong end in gripping a curl between the upper surface of the first named prong end and the lower surface of the other prong end of the device, the prongs of said device having longitudinal corrugations, and perforations in said cor rugations.
3.
