Description

F. H. REAM May 5, 1959 BIB Filed March 5, 1958 United States Patent C) Fred H. Ream, Dayton, Ohio Application March 3, 1958, Serial No. 718,634
2 Claims. (Cl. 2-49) This invention relates to a bib. The invention relates more particularly to a bib which is easily and readily attached to the wearer or removed therefrom.
An object of this invention is to provide a bib which is easily attached to the wearer without the necessity of tying strings or cords or the like.
Another object of this invention is to provide a bib which is so constructed that there is no danger of choking the wearer by pulling upon the bib.
Another object of this invention is to provide a bib having a collar and neckband structure which is particularly durable and long lived even under hard usage.
Other objects and advantages reside in the construction of parts, the combination thereof, the method of manufacture, and the mode of operation, as will become more apparent from the following description.
In the drawing,
Figure 1 is an over-all elevational view of a bib of this invention.
Figure 2 is a perspective view showing a resilient member of a bib of this invention.
Figure 3 is a fragmentary perspective view showing a portion of a resilient member of this invention with engagement means attached thereto.
Figure 4 is a sectional view taken substantially on line 4 4 of Figure 3.
Figure 5 is a lfragmentary view showing a portion of a resilient member of this invention with a portion of an engagement member of this invention.
Figure 6 is a sectional view taken substantially on line 6--6 of Figure 4.
Referring to the drawing in detail, a bib of this invention comprises a main body portion 10. The body portion 10 may be provided with a crumb catcher pocket 12, if desired. The body 10 may be constructed of any suitable cloth or plastic material or the like. The body 10 is provided with a neckband 14 within which is disposed an elongate, arcuate, resilient member 16 which may be made of spring steel or plastic or any other suitable material which resiliently tends to close on itself to form a circle, as shown in Figures 1 and 2.
Along the length of the resilient member 16 is a sheath 18. The sheath 18 prevents the resilient member 16 from cutting into the neckband 14, thus giving long life to the neckband 14.
Each end of the resilient member 16 has a bent-over portion 20, as shown in Figures 2 and 5. The bent-over portion 20 thus forms a protuberance at each end of the resilient member 16.
At each end of the resilient member 16 is a truncated spherical member 24 which is provided with a cavity 26 therein with a slot 28 leading to the cavity 26. The cavity 26 is open at one end thereof, as shown in Figure 5, so that the bent-over portion 20 of each end of the resilient member 16 is easily placed within the cavity 26 with a portion of the resilient member 16 and the sheath 18 positioned within the slot 28. A lip 29 encompasses the open end of the cavity 26.
A cap member 30 is adapted to engage the lip 29 and a surface 32 which surrounds the lip 29 to close the cavity 26. The cap 30 completes the formation of the sphere which is otherwise truncated. The truncated member 24 and the cap 30 are preferably of plastic material or the like.
Therefore, the cap 30 is easily attached to its respective truncated spherical member 24 by the use of a small amount of solvent or the like which is placed upon engagement surfaces of the members 24 and 30 while pressure is applied therebetween. Therefore, one of the truncated spherical members 24 with its cap 30 is firmly attached to each end of the resilient member 16.
The truncated spherical members 24 with the caps 30 thereon form spherical abutment members which are normally in engagement, as shown in Figure 1. The spherical abutment members at the ends of the resilient member 16 provide protection to the wearer of the bib against injury by the ends of the resilient member 16. The spherical abutment members may engage the neck of the wearer without injury thereto.
Thus, it is understood that the bib of this invention is readily and easily attached to the wearer without the possibility of injury to the wearer. Furthermore, the bib may be easily and readily removed from the wearer without the possibility of injury to the wearer.
Although the preferred embodiment of the device has been described, it will be understood that within the purview of this invention various changes may be made in the form, details, proportion and arrangement of parts, the combination thereof and mode of operation, which generally stated consist in a device capable of carrying out the objects set forth, as disclosed and defined in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
1. In a bib provided with a neckband, an elongate arcuate resilient member within the neckband, the ends of the resilient member extending from the neckband, each end of the resilient member having a protuberance, a pair of truncated spherical members each of which has a cavity therein and a slot leading to the cavity, the protuberance at each end of the resilient member being `disposed within the cavity of one of the spherical members with a portion of the resilient member extending through the slot, a pair of caps, there being a cap attached to each truncated spherical member covering the cavity thereof.
2. In a bib, an arcuate resilient neck member having a protuberance at the end thereof, a truncated spherical member having a cavity therein open at one end thereof and a slot leading to the cavity, the protuberance of the resilient member being positioned Within the cavity with a portion of the resilient member disposed within the slot, and an arcuate cover member attached to the truncated spherical member and closing the cavity, the cover member completing the spherical formation of the truncated spherical member so that the cover member and the truncated spherical member substantially form a sphere.
