GARMENT PIN Filed Aug. 23, 1957 3' INVENTOR 5-65 JOSEPH G. NEUB/G' BY -44; ATTORNEY aired States GARMENT PEN Joseph C. Neuhig, North Massapequa, NSY.
Application August 23, 1957, Serial No. 679,938
1% 'Ciaims. (ill. 24- 65) .end amply protects the fingers of the user both during attachment and removal and while the pin is in place.
A further object of the invention is to provide a garment pin which may be ornamented Without detriment to its effectiveness as a strap holder.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear hereafter in the detailed description, be particularly pointed out in the appended claims and be illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:
LFigure 1 is a perspective view illustrating the intended use of a preferred embodiment of the garment pin of the present invention;
Figure 2 is a side elevational view on an enlarged scale of the pin of Figure 1;
' Figure 3 is a bottom plan view of the pin of Figure 2;
Figure 4 is a vertical sectional view taken along the lines 4-4 of Figure 2; and
*Fi'gure 5 is an exploded view of an ornamented form of the pin.
Referring now in detail to the drawings in which like reference characters designate like parts, the. garment pin ofthe present invention is designed to be attached or applied to a garment for attaching an article and in the form of the illustrated embodiment, is particularly designed for use as a shoulder strap pin and to be applied to either shoulder of a coat, jacket or other shoulderedgarment, depending on the preference of the wearer. When in place, the pin effectively holds the shoulder strap of a pocketbook, camera or other shoulder-supported article against accidental or unwanted dislodgment, the common objection to the use of such articles. At the same time, the pin itself is readily attached or removed and, even more readily, is engaged with and disengaged from a shoulder strap.
Possessing the above characteristics, the shoulder strap pin or holder is comprised of an upper or body portion 1 t of substantially C-shape and a lower or pin portion 2 fixed of secured to and depending from the body portion, the body and pin portions together forming a member of substantially S- or double-loop shape. Opening or facing toward the neck of the wearer, the body portion 1 serves' as a holder for the shoulder strap, while the pin portion 2;"jfacing in the opposite direction, serves to attach the body portion to the shoulder of the garment to which the shoulder strap pin is applied.
The pin or attaching portion 2 is formed of a pair of transversely spaced pin elements 3 made of spring wire or like resilient material. If desired, the entire pin may be of such spaced wire or double wire construction with the upper ends of integral extensions of the pin elements fixed or rigidly connected as at 4. However, while it is believed the better construction to connect the pin elements or their integral extensions at one end, in any case, it is preferred that the body portion 1 be made at least in part of a relatively wide strip of material, which, depending upon its nature, may be pressed, cast, molded or otherwise formed to shape. In such case, it is only.
necessary that the pin portion 2 constituting the bottom wire construction.
The disclosed embodiment is in between the above limits, with both the pin portion 2 and part of the body portion 1 of spaced double wire construction. In accordance with the disclosed construction, the pin elements 3, which are pointed at their free or inner ends "6, are connected at their opposite ends by reverse bends 7 to intermediate legs 8 forming the lower legs of the body portion 1. 'These intermediate legs in turn are connected at their opposite ends by reverse bends 9 to relatively short top or upper legs 10, the inner ends of which are connected as at 4. As will be noted, the legs 5, 8 and 16 of the pin are substantialy flat and parallel when viewed fromthe side and, except for the leg 10, are substantialy coterminous longitudinally. While the other legs are substantially straight, the transversely or laterally spaced pin elements 3 forming the bottom leg 5 are crimped, corrugated or sinuous with their convolutions 12 lying in the common horizontal plane of this leg and opposed so as together to exert a yieldable lateral or transverse resistance to detachment of the pin from a fabric. 4
Through its somewhat flattened S- or double-loop shape, the pin presents upper and lower oppositely open ing or facing slots or recesses 13 and 14 closed at their inner ends by the returns 9 and 7, respectively, slot 13 inwardly facing and within the portion 1 and the lower slot 14 outwardly tween the pin portion 2 and the lower portion.
C-shaped body facing and besecured to the inner end portion 11 of the upper legs 12 of the integral extensions of the pin elements 3-. The manner in which the upper end portion 11 is attached, secured or fixed to the plate member 15 will depend in part upon the material of which the plate member is'- made. Thus, if the plate member is of plastic, the upper end portion conveniently may be imbedded therein during molding, or, if the plate member is of metal, the
portion to clamp it thereto.
However made and secured to the pin elements 3-01" their body portion extensions, the plate member 15 ex tends in the direction of and covers the upper leg 10 and has a part 16 overlying that leg and disposed substantialy parallel to the lower leg 5 of the pin. Defining with the connected intermediate leg 8, the upper, in-
wardly facing slot 13, the plate member 15 preferably has an inner end portion 17 projecting inwardly beyond the intermediate leg and upturned or up-sloping toward. its inner end to facilitate insertion of a shoulder strap.
into the slot.
Fixed to or integral with the plate member 15 is a downtumed flange or, in the illustrated embodiment,
Patented Apr. 19, 1960;
the upper leg 8 of the body" In the disclosed embodiment, the body por-- tion. 1 includes a plate or body member 15 attached-or hood 18 which depends or projects downwardly from the outer end of the plate member or its intermediate part 16 toward the pointed ends 6 of the pin elements 3 and thus the corresponding or pointed end of the lower or attaching portion 2, Here sloping downwardly and outwardly, the flange 18 partly restricts or closes the opening to the lower slot 14 and terminates or ends above but closely adjacent the pointed end of the attaching portion. While sufficient not to interfere with pinning of the pin to the shoulder of a garment, the spacing between the flange 18 and the pointed end of the attaching portion 2 is so little as effectively to protect or guard the user from being injured by the pointed ends, either during application or removal of the pin or while it is in place.
Although the plate member 15 may be made of a material which itself is attractive, such as a plated or even a precious metal, it generally will be preferred to apply ornamentation to the plate member. This is readily accomplished in the manner shown in Figure by provid ing the intermediate part 16 of the plate member with a substantially flat upper face 19 to which may be aflixed a decorative cover or cap plate 20. Conveniently, the decorative cover plate 20 may be affixed to the plate member 15 by the provision in the latter of a pair of spaced perforations 21 through which the decorative plate may be riveted or secured to the plate member as 'by rivets 22, this construction especially lending itself to interchange of cover plates to suit the preference of the wearer.
Constructed in the above manner, the pin will be at- I 'tached to the shoulder of a garment with its pointed end 6 out, thus providing in the upper slot '13 an inwardly facing slot'or seat for a shoulder strap and, since pressed tighter into the fabric of the shoulder by an outward force, elfectively holding the shoulder strap against accidental dislodgment. At the same time, the firm platform provided by the transversely spaced pin elements 3 of the lower leg 5 will prevent the pin from wobbling laterally and the crimping of those legs, coupled with the closed end of the lower slot 14, will restrain the pin against longitudinal shifting. It should be understood that the described and disclosed embodiment is merely exemplary of the invention and that all modifications are intended to be included which do not depart from either the spirit of the invention or the scope of the appended claims.
