COMB

Filed Ndv. 2a, 1952 FIG.2

INVENTOR. CELIA POE TTO ATTORNEY.

Patented May 11, 1954 COMB Celia Poetto, New York, N. Y., assignor to Bruce King, New York, N. Y.

Application November 28, 1952, Serial No. 323,047

2 Claims.

This invention relates to a new type of toilet and/r pocket comb, which can be produced from any suitable plastic, rubber or other known mate rial, and which has a portion carrying the teeth which is, by virtue of its construction and design, elastically or flexibly adaptable to the contour of the head.

The primary object of this invention is to provide for a toilet or pocket comb made of a single piece of material, which is designed in such manher, that one portion of the comb is rigid and serves as a solid holder or body, while the other portion, carrying the teeth, is elastic or flexible to the contour of the head when in use.

A further object of the present invention is to provide an economical, efficient and simply constructed comb, having a flexibly toothed body portion adapted to give under relatively light pressure.

The advantage of this new type of comb resides in its elastic adaptability to the contour of the head within itself without having other parts, serving for instance as a holder, attached or fixed to the flexible portion of the comb which could get loose or lost when in use, thus making the comb useless.

Further objects and advantages of the invention will appear from the following disclosure thereof together with the attached drawing which illustrates a preferred form of embodiment thereof, and in which:

Figure 1 is a front view demonstrating a pos sible construction of the invention showing the portion carrying the teeth undefiected;

Figure 2 illustrates how the, portion carrying the teeth may be elastically deflected;

Figure 3 is a cross section on the line 3--3 in the center of the comb; and

Figure 4 is a cross section on the line 4-4 near the end of the comb.

The invention described hereinafter and illustrated by the accompanying drawing is obviously not limited to this description and design which may serve merely as an example and as one possible form of the invention.

In Figures 1 to 4 of the drawing is illustrated how the comb is formed with a body I I having a reinforced upper portion or holder l2. The teeth 13 of the comb are cut or formed or pressed on the lower portion M of the body 1!. A longitudinal slot I 5 is cut, milled, formed or pressed in the body H between the reinforced upper portion l2 and the lower portion l4 of the body I I carrying the teeth l3. A further recess [6 in the center of the reinforced upper portion i2 is provided to allow the lower portion M of the body 5 i carrying the teeth l3 to deflect elastically upwardly. The slot Hi ends on both sides of the reinforced upper portion [2 in enlarged substantially round holes I! which serve to stress-relieve the remaining body part connection between the upper and the lower portions when the latter carrying the teeth is deflected, and thus prevent the comb from breaking, adding at the same time a greater flexibility to the lower portion.

This description and illustration does not limit my present invention to the described design, but may as well pertain to all other varieties within the scope of the attached claims.

The body I l of the comb may be made of any suitable material which will adapt the comb for the intended purpose, such as plastic, rubber or synthetic rubber.

What I claim is:

1. A comb comprising a one-piece body having a reinforced non-deflecting upper portion and teeth projecting from its lower portion and having a longitudinal slot between the upper and the lower portions, a recess centrally located in the reinforced upper portion to provide for an enlarged elastic adaptability of said lower portion carrying said teeth to the contour of the head.

2. A comb comprising a one-piece body having a reinforced non-deflecting upper portion and teeth projecting from its lower portion and having a longitudinal slot between the upper and the lower portions and a recess in the reinforced upper portion, both slot and recess providing for an enlarged elastic adaptability of said lower portion carrying said teeth to the contour of the head, said slot ending on both ends of the reinforced non-deflecting upper portion in an enlarged opening for stress-relieving and greater flexibility of the lower portion carrying the teeth when elastically deflected.
