B. KEN N ER SANITARY BELT May 15, 1956 Filed July 20, 1954 BeaIr/ce Kenner IN VEN TOR.

BY WM 5m United States Patent 2,745,406 SANITARY BELT Beatrice Kennel, Washington, D. C. Application July 20, 1954, Serial No. 444,469 3 Claims. (Cl. 128-291) This invention relates to improvements in sanitary belts and more specifically provides a device for supporting catamenial pads or sanitary napkins on the body of the wearer in a highly eflicient and satisfactory manner.

An object of this invention is to provide a sanitary belt that is extremely simple in construction, easy to use, adjustable for various sized persons, well adapted for its intended purpose and very inexpensive to manufacture.

Another object of this invention is to provide a sanitary belt which is extremely inexpensive to manufacture, that may be provided at a very small cost as an addition to the packages of catamenial pads that are normally dispensed by a dispensing machine in various public and semi-public locations.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a sanitary belt constructed of fiem'ble plastic or other suitable material and including adhesive portions for attachment to the pad wherein the adhesive portions are provided with protective coverings that must be removed prior to the assembly of the sanitary belt and catamenial pad.

Still another important object of the present invention is to provide a sanitary belt having adhesive attaching meansfor forming an encircling belt about the wearer and also provided with a pair of supporting elements that are freely slidable on the encircling belt thereby providing an easily adjusted and positioned device for supporting the pad in the most desired position thereby eliminating unnecessary deleterious efiects, such as chafing and irritation normally caused by devices of this class.

Yet another important object of the present invention is to provide a sanitary belt that will be so low in cost that they may be economically included in packages of catamenial pads to be dispensed wherein persons may easily obtain both a pad and a sanitary belt when an unexpected onset of the menstrual period occurs.

These together with other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:

Figure 1 is a front view showing the sanitary belt of the present invention in use on the body of a wearer;

Figure 2 is a perspective view showing the sanitary belt of the present invention;

Figure 3 shows the means for securing the belt in encircling relation to the body of a wearer; and

Figure 4 is a detailed, vertical sectional view taken substantially upon a plane passing along section line 4-4 of Figure 2 showing the details of construction of one of the adhesive members secured to the supporting element.

Referring now specifically to the drawings, it will be seen that the numeral generally designates the sanitary belt of the present invention for supporting a catamenial pad 12 in position on the body 14 of a wearer.

The sanitary belt 10 includes a generally elongated strap member 16 having a loop 18 formed in one end thereof. The other end of the elongated strap 16 is provided with an adhesive coated member 20 having a protective covering 22 thereon. In assembling the elongated strap 16 about the body 14, the adhesive portion 20 ice is inserted through the loop 18 and the removable cover 22 is then removed and the adhesive is secured to the outer surface of the elongated strap 16 thereby securing the strap 16 about the body 14 of the wearer. If desirable, the end of the strap 16 passing through the loop 18 may be reversely bent thereby forming a loop wherein the loop will be interengaged.

Slidably positioned on the elongated strap 16 is a pair of supporting elements generally designated by the numeral 24 and including a pair of closed loops 26 that are generally enlarged and slidably received on the belt 16. An adhesive member 28 having a protective covering 30 removably secured to one face thereof is attached to the loop 26 by reversely bending a portion of the adhesive covered portion 28 around the loop 26 as indicated by the numeral 32. The protective covers 30 are removed and the adhesive secures the pad 12 to the supporting element 24 thereby retaining the pad 12 in the desired position and providing a device that does not form unsightly bulges and one which is relatively inexpensive so that they may be positioned with packages of pads 12 that are normally dispensed by suitable machines. The device may be constructed of any suitable plastic material or the like having the necessaryqualities of flexibility and strength.

From the foregoing, the construction and operation of the device will be readily understood and further explanation is believed to be unnecessary. However, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the appended claims.

What is claimed as new is as follows:

1. A sanitary belt comprising an elongated member adapted to encircle the body of a wearer, means for adjustably securing the ends of the belt to each other, a pair of supporting elements adjustably positioned on said elongated member, and adhesive means for detachably securing the supporting elements to the ends of a sanitary napkin.

2. A sanitary belt comprising an elongated member adapted to encircle the body of a wearer, means for adjustably securing the ends of the belt to each other, a pair of supporting elements adjustably positioned on said elongated member, and means for detachably securing the supporting elements to the ends of a sanitary napkin, said means for adjustably securing the ends of the member together including a loop on one end of said member for loosely receiving the other end of the member, said other end of the member having an adhesive covered portion for attachment to said one end for interlocking engagement with the loop on said one end.

3. A sanitary belt comprising an elongated strap of flexible material, a loop on one end of said strap, an adhesive covered portion on the other end of said strap, a removable protector on said adhesive covered portion, said loop receiving the other end of the strap is extended therethrough for attachment to the surface of said strap thereby adjustably securing the ends together, a pair of supporting elements slidably positioned on said strap, each of said supporting elements including a loop loosely received on said strap, and an adhesive covered portion on the lower end thereof, said adhesive portion having a protective cover whereby the adhesive portions on the supporting elements may be detachably secured to the ends of a sanitary catamenial pad.
