DEVICE TO ASSIST IN PUTTING ON A BRACELET Filed July 17, 1958 INVENTOR CAROLINE J HO YE ATTORNEY5 U i d a o DEVICE TO ASSIST IN PUTTING ON A BRACELET Caroline J. Hoye, New Castle, Pa. Application July 17, 1958, Serial No. 749,224

2 Claims. (Cl. 248-121) This invention relates to article holders or supports and is a device to assist in applying a flexible bracelet around the wrist or arm of the wearer.

Most ornamental bracelets worn by women consist of a flexible band or chain and a separate fastener or clasp which is closed after the bracelet'has been placed around the wrist. These bracelet fasteners or clasps are of various kinds but most of them include a loop-like section at one end of the wrist band or chain while at the other end of the latter is a pivoted tongue-like section that must be passed through the loop and then snapped to a closed position. It is extremely difficult to bring the two parts or elements of the clasp into interengaged and closed position by the use of one hand while the bracelet band extends around the wrist of the other hand; and usually the wearer requests another person to fasten the bracelet or at least hold one of the clasp sections steady while the other section is being engaged with it.

One object of the invention is to provide a simple and effective device which may be supported on a dressing table or the like and which will hold one clasp section of a bracelet band steady while the coacting clasp section is being fastened to it.

Another object is to provide a device of this character which includes a base to support the wrist to which the bracelet is to be applied, a clamp to hold one of the bracelet clasp sections and a standard to support the clamp over the base and the forearm or wrist so that the user's other hand may quickly and easily position the bracelet around the wrist and engage and fasten the other clasp section to the one held by the clamp.

With the above and other objects and advantages in view, the invention resides in the novel combinations and arrangements of parts and the novel features of construction hereinafter described and claimed, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings which show the present preferred embodiment of the invention.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the bracelet holder or support, and

Fig. 2 is a top plan view.

Referring more in detail to the drawings the numeral denotes a base with a fiat bottom adapted to rest on a dressing table, bureau top or other support and of a size to support the wrist or forearm. It is preferably made of a thick plate or slab of an acrylic plastic material, such as those sold under the trademarks Lucite and Plexiglas, and while it may be of any shape it is shown as rectangular. Arising from the base plate adjacent to one of its shorter sides is a standard 11 to support a bracelet clamping device 12 spaced above the central portion of the base. This standard or upright 11 may be made from a metal rod with a straight lower end 13 suitably anchored to the base and a straight upper end 14 disposed substantially horizontal and carrying the clamp 12, the intermediate portion of the rod being preferably bent or laterally offset from the lower end, as at 15, to accommodate the wrist of the user. The rod is 2 preferably round and its vertical lower end may have a tight friction fit in a cylindrical socket in the base. Thus the two units may be readily separated for transportation or for convenient carrying in a handbag, and as readily assembled for use.

The bracelet clamp 12 may take various forms but is preferably in the form of a spring clasp having a fixed jaw 16 and a movable jaw 17 normally forced toward the fixed jaw by a spring 18. A well known type of spring clasp or clamp is illustrated, the end of the fixed jaw being soldered to the horizontal end of the red at 19 and the movable jaw having a swinging or pivotal connection at 20 to the fixed jaw. The two jaws are adapted to grip between them the loop element of the bracelet fastening clasp and they are of such construction that the element will not be scratched or marred.

In using the device one of the clasp elements of the bracelet is fixed between the jaws of the clamp and the bracelet depends therefrom. The arm or wrist to which the bracelet is to be applied is placed on the base 10 to hold it down on a dressing table or the like. The other hand of the user then brings the bracelet around the wrist and engages the tongue element with the loop element and closes the clasp to fasten the bracelet on the arm. The movable jaw of the clamp is then operated to release the bracelet.

From the foregoing, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, it will be seen that novel and advantageous provision has been made for carrying out the objects of the invention, and while preferences have been disclosed, attention is invited to the possibility of making variations within the scope of the invention as claimed.

I claim:

1. A device to assist in fastening to the wrist or arm a bracelet having a two-part severable clasp comprising, in combination, a flat base plate adapted to be supported on a dressing table or the like, a bracelet holding clamp disposed above the central portion of said base plate and spaced above the same so that the wrist or forearm may be positioned between the clamp and base plate, said clamp having spring closed jaws adapted to grip and hold one of the separable parts of the bracelet clasp while the other part thereof is manually engaged with it after the bracelet has been positioned around the wrist, and means carried by said base plate for rigidly holding said clamp, said means comprising a rod having a vertical lower portion fixed to said base adjacent its edge, a horizontal upper portion fixed to said clamp and a longitudi nally curved intermediate portion of a size to permit the wrist to be disposed between said clamp and said base plate, said curved portion laterally off-setting the clamp from the lower portion of the rod.

2. A device to assist in fastening to the wrist or arm a bracelet having a two-part severable clasp, comprising, in combination, a fiat base plate of generally rectangular shape adapted to be supported on a dressing table or the like and having in its top adjacent one end a cylindrical socket, a bracelet holding clamp disposed above the central portion of said base plate and spaced above the same so that the wrist or forearm may be positioned between the clamp and base plate, said clamp having spring closed jaws adapted to grip and hold one of the separable parts of the bracelet clasp while the other part thereof is manually engaged with it after the bracelet has been positioned around the wrist, and a bent round metal rod for rigidly mounting said clamp in a horizontal position above the base plate, said rod having a straight lower end removably and frictionally held in said socket, a straight horizontally extending upper end fixed to said clamp and a longitudinally curved intermediate portion to laterally offset the clamp from the lower end of the rod and permit the wrist-to bepositibneG between the central portion of 613,081 Scott Oct. 25, 1898 saidbase plate andsaid'clamp. 13868344 Bl'u'm July 19; 1932 1,999,613 Mueller et al..
