Application June 7, 1948, Serial No. 31,571

This invention relates to-hair curler clips. An object of this invention is to provide curler clips of the character described comprising a pair of members, said members having fulcrumed means intermediate the ends thereof, handles on one side-of the fulcrum, and hair clipping jaws on the other side of the fulcrum, and means in the form of a rubber sleeve surrounding said jaws and continuously urging rotation of said members about said fulcrum and pressing the jaws into closing position.

A further object of this invention is to provide a clip of the character described in which the rubber sleeve is spaced [from the fulcrum, the arrangement being such that when the handles are squeezed together, the jaws will open and in so doing will stretch the sleeve so that when 1 Claim. (Cl.132-46) pressure is relieved from the handles, the resilient sleeve or rubber band will press the jaws together. 7

Another object of this invention is to provide a clip of the character described, in which the fulcrum comprises a pair of jaws on the two parts of the clip, said jaws having contacting outer end portions and portions inward of the outer ends thereof spaced from one another even when the jaws are closed so as to receive a curl.

Another object of this invention is to provide a curl clip of the character described, in which the fulcrum for the two parts comprises tongues or pintles extending from one part received in notches or openings in the other part thereby in effect producing a hinge between said parts.

'Yet' a further object of this invention is to provide a curl clip of the character described, in which one jaw is straight and the other jaw comprises a pair of curved or humped portions forming a pair of spaces between the jaws when the jaws are closed.

Yet a further object of this invention is to provide a clip of the character described comprising two parts hinged together and comprising handles extending at angles to the jaws and a rubber band about the jaws and near the hinge, the handles being spaced apart when the jaws are closed so that when the handles are pressed together, the jaws will open and stretch the rubber band.

Yet another object of this invention is to provide' a strong, rugged and durable clip of the character described, which shall be relatively inexpensive to manufacture, easy to manipulate, and yet practical and efficient to a high degree inuse.

Other objects of this 'invention will in part shown in Fig. "11; I

part 12.

be obvious and in part hereinafter pcintedout.

The invention accordingly consists in the fea tures of construction, combinations of elements, and arrangement of parts, which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter described, and of which the scope of invention will be indicated in the following claim.

In the accompanying drawings in which is shown various illustrative embodiments of this invention,

' "Fig. 14 is a cross-sectional view of the rubber IE-45 "of Fig. 11.

Referring now in detail to the drawing, l0 designates a clip embodying the invention. The same comprises lower clip part II and upper clip The bottom clip part II comprises" a :jaw portion 1'3, a handle portion 14, and an intermediate fulcrum portion I5. The jaw portion l3jcomprises'two flat "tongues 16 disposed inthe same plane, there being .aspace l1 therebetween.

The handle portion 14 may be substantially square inshape and has a central opening [8. Said handle I4 is inclined upwardly and rearwardly with respect to the jaw .13. The intermediate portion I5 is of curved transverse crossmember I I.

' or humped portions 50 and '5I. .49 is adapted to contact the front. end of jaw section forming an upwardly projecting hump or ridge as shown most clearly in Fig. 6 of the drawing.

The top member I2 comprises an intermediate portion 20, a handle 2| extendin to one side of the intermediate portion and a jaw 22 extending to the opposite side of said intermediate portion. Said intermediate portion 20 is likewise of transverse hump-shaped or curved cross-section and conformingly complements and nests with the intermediate'portion I of the bottom Thus it is likewise in the form of a humped portion. The finger-hold handle 2| is disposed at a greater angle to the horizontal than the finger-hold handle I4 so that said handles are divergent when the clip is closed. On

one side of the hump portion is a shoulder 23 which contacts shoulder 24 on part II between and is formed with an opening 25. The jaw 22 comprises a pair of spaced aligned forked arms 26. When the clip is closed, the front ends of forked arms 26 contact the front ends'of arms I6. The forked arms 26 are inclined'upwardly and rearwardly from the front ends. At the rear end of the arms 26 are downwardly curved portions 21 interconnected to the hump 20 ,by a shoulder 28, which contacts shoulder 29 on part II, between jaw I3 and intermediate portion I5.

Surrounding the jaws I3, 22 is an annular rubber band 30. The rubber band extends over the curved portion 21 of the jaw 22 and around the underside of jaw I3 at the rear end thereof. When the finger-holdhandles 2|, I4 are pressed together, the jaws 22, I3 will open against the tension of the rubber or elastic band ,30. The nesting portions I5, 26 serve to keep the parts II, I2 in proper assembled relation. When the handles I4, 2| are squeezed together, the top member I2 pivots'about shoulder 23, which fulcrums about shoulder 24 of the bottom member. The space between the jaws I3, 22 serves to permit a good grip on a curl 34 and helps to retain the clip against accidentally slipping off the curl. The arms 26 overlie the arms I 6 so as to engage the same when the clip is closed. In use, the finger-hold handles 2 I, I4 are squeezed together to open the clip, which can then be manipulated to receive the curl between the jaws I3, 22, and when pressure is released from the finger-hold handles, the curl will be gripped by said jaws.

In Figs. 3, 4, and 7, there is shown a clip Illa embodying the invention and illustrating a modified construction. Clip Illa comprises a bottom part 40, and a top part 4|. The bottom part 40 comprises a jaw 42 from which extends rearwardly a portion 43. Extending rearwardly from portion 43 is a handle 44. The handle 44 is somewhat inclined upwardly and rearwardly from the jaw 42. At the base of the handle are a pair of upwardly bent prongs 45 for the purpose hereinafter appearing.

The top member 4| comprises. a jaw 46 from which extends handle 41. ,Thehandle 41 is inclined upwardly from the horizontal to a greater extent than the handle'44, and said handles diverge when the clip is closed. The jaw 46 comprises spaced parallel portions 48, interconnected at the front end as at 49. Each of said portions 48 comprise a pair of successive upwardly curved The front end 42 when the clip is closed. Also, the portion 52 between the hump portions and 5| is substantially at the level of the top surface of jaw 42 when the clip is closed. It will be noted that the jaw 42 is relatively narrow and bisects the sides between the jaw portions 48.

Adjacent the base of the handle 41 are notches 55 into which the prongs 45 project. Thus when the handles are squeezed together, the jaws will pivot about the prongs 45, which serve as a hinge. The two parts 40 and 4| are held together by a band or sleeve 56 of rubber or other elastic material. The band 46 surrounds the top and bottom jaws adjacent the hinge prongs 45, so

that when the handles are squeezed together, the jaws will stretch the band as they open so that the band will serve to close the jaws when pressure is relieved from the handles. When the clip engages the curl, portions of the curl will be received between the hump portions 5|], 5| and the bottom jaw 42. Also the curl will extend around the central bottom jaw 42 between the portions 50, 5| of the top jaw, whereby the clip will firmly grip the curl. It will be noted that when the bands 30 or 56 of clips I0, Illa are removed, the two parts of each clip may be separated, thereby facilitatin the assembly of the clips.

In Figs. 9, 10 and '13 there is shown a clip I06 embodying the invention and illustrating yet another modified construction. The clip IIlb comprises a bottom part 60 and atop part 6|. The bottom part 66 comprises a longitudinal curved jaw 62 from which there extends upwardly at an angle thereto a handle 63. The handle 63 is formed with a pair of parallel apertured ears 64. The top jaw 65 is transversely upwardly curved. In other words, it is concave at its under side. The bottom member 60 comprises a jaw 62 likewise longitudinally curved but being transversely curved downwardly so as to be con vex at its upper side. Extending from the jaw 65 at an angle thereto is handle 66 formed with a pair of parallel apertured ears 6! received within the ears 64. The two parts are hinged together by means of a hinge pin 68 passing through the apertures in cars '64, 61. The outer ends of the jaws 62, 65 contact when the clip is closed, as shown in Fig. 9. The handles 63, 66 are spaced from one another and are somewhat divergent when the clip is closed. Both handles are almost at right angles to the curved jaws from which they extend.

Surrounding the jaws 62, 65 adjacent the junction of said jaws with their respective handles, is an annular band or sleeve III or rubber or other elastic material. The band serves to keep the jaws closed. However, when the handles are squeezed together, the jaws will open to receive a curl. When pressure is relieved from the handles, the jaws will close.

In Figs. 11, 12 and 15, there is shown a clip IIlc embodying the invention and illustrating yet another modified construction. The clip I00 comprises a bottom part II and a top part I2. The bottom part II comprises a substantial flat jaw I3 which becomes narrow toward its front end. Extending from the rear end of jaw 13 is an upwardly inclined handle 14. The jaw II is formed at opposite sides thereof with outwardly extending pintles I5, spaced forwardly of the junction I6 between the handle I4 and the jaw I3. The top part I2 comprises a jaw 11, said jaw comprises a pair of successive hump portions I8 and I9. Said hump portions I8 or III may be formed with slots or openings 18a and 19a. Between the hump portions I8 and I9 is a downwardly projecting portion 80 which contacts the jaw 13 when the clip is closed. The forward end 8! of the hump portion H contacts the front end 13a of the bottom jaw 13, when the clip is closed. Also the rear end 82 of the hump portion 19 contacts the bottom jaw 13 when the clip is closed. Extending from the jaw 12 is an upwardly and rearwardly inclined portion 83 from which extends a still more inclined handle portion 84. Extending from the sides of portion 83 are parallel apertured ears 86, which receive the pintles 15, for hinging the two parts 1| 72 together.

Surrounding the jaws 13, 11 just forwardly of the hinge 15 is an annular band 90 of rubber or other elastic material. The band likewise keeps the jaws closed, but when the handles are squeezed together, the jaws will open, to tension the band. It will be noted that the band engages the hump portion 19 of the top jaw 11 and also extends around the underside of the bottom jaw 13, forwardly of the hinge pintles 15.

It will thus be seen that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are achieved and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.

As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiment above set forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawings is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent:

In a hair clip, a bottom member and a top member, the bottom member having a forked jaw at its front end, and a hump shaped portion at the rear end of the jaw, and a handle extending rearwardly from the hump shaped portion, said top member having a forked jaw at its front end, and a hump shaped portion at the rear of the jaw, and a handle extending rearwardly from said hump shaped portion, the jaws of the two portions overlying one another, the hump shaped portions being nested one within the other, and an elastic band surrounding the jaws of the top and bottom members and disposed forwardly of the nesting hump shaped portions, the handle of the bottom member being inclined upwardly and the handle of the top member being inclined upwardly to a greater degree than the handle of the bottom member, the jaw of the top member having adjacent the hump shaped portion of the top member, a portion humped upwardly away from the jaw of the bottom memher, and said elastic band engaging the hump shaped portion of the jaw of the top member.
