Jan. 16, 1962 W. T. ROWLES HOOK Filed Aug. 6, 1958 INVENTOR.

MAM/W Z Fan 415$ I TTOIQ/VEV atent filice 3,dl6,593 Patented Jan. 16, 1962 3,016,593 HOOK William T. Rowles, Decatur, Ga., assignor to Universal Button Company, a corporation of Kentucky Filed Aug. 6, 1958, Ser. No. 753,476 2 Claims. (Cl. 24-227) This invention relates to a separable fastening device, and more particularly to an improved hook for a so-called tailors hook and eye arrangement for use as a garment fastener.

In the manufacture of clothing, such as trousers, skirts and the like, it is now common practice to employ a tailors hook and eye for fastening the waistband above the fly and placket opening which type of fastener is well known to those skilled in the art. Such a fastening device consists generally of an eye or loop which is attached to one side of the waistband adjacent the opening and a hook member which is attached to the waistband on the opposite side of the opening. The hook member engages with the eye or loop to hold the two meeting edges of the waistband together in overlapped relation.

Such a hook member usually consists of a base portion having a reversely bent hook portion spaced therefrom with the eye or loop adapted to be positioned therebetween when the two members were engaged. In pressing the garment and waistband, it has been found that the hook portion will often tend to be deformed due to the pressure of the pressing buck which, of course, is undesirable. That is to say, the hook portion would be crushed and bent inwardly toward the base portion so as to be superimposed thereon thereby closing the space therebetween which resulted in the fastener being inoperative until the hook portion was again spread apart at the base portion by means of a screw driver or other tool which of course, was inconvenient and unsatisfactory. it is to an improved hook construction having means arranged thereby for preventing the hook portion from collapsing to which the present invention relates.

Accordingly, it is the general object of the present invention to provide an improved hook construction for this type of fastening device wherein the hook portion will always be maintained in its proper splced relation relative to the base portion so that the hook will always be in operative condition.

It is a more specific object of the invention to provide an improved hook construction having means carried by the base portion for maintaining the proper space between the base portion and hook portion at all times and to prevent the hook portion from collapsing when subjected to a pressing operation.

It is another object of this invention to provide an improved hook construction which is simple and inexpensive in its manufacture and, at the same time, efficient and effective in its use.

Various other objects and advantages of this invention will be more app rent in the course of the following specification, and will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the accompanying drawings, there is shown for the purpose of illustration, an embodiment which my invention may assume in practice.

In these drawings:

FIG. 1 is a fragmentary view of a trouser fly construction with the fly partially open showing the improved hook of the present invention incorporated with the garment at the waistband thereof,

FIG. 2 is a sectional view taken on line 2-2 of FIG. 1,

FIG. 3 is an enlarged plan view of the blank from which the hook is formed, and

FIG. 4 is an exploded perspective view of the hook and the associated anchor plate member shown separated from the trouser waistband but in general the position which they assume before being attached together.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, there is shown in FIG. 1 a fragmentary portion of a trouser fly having a right front leg portion 2, a left front leg portion 3 and the usual waistband 4 stitched to the upper ends of these portions. The fly front of the trousers may be secured together in any conventional manner, such as by a slide fastener 5, as shown.

There is attached to one meeting edge of the waistband in any suitable manner, a loop or eye member 6 and to the other meeting edge there is attached the hook member 7 in accordance with the present invention. It will be obvious that the trouser meeting edges of the waistband are secured together by inserting the hook portion 8 of the fastener member 7 within the loop or eye 6, so as to hold them securely fastened together.

According to the present invention, as more clearly shown in FIGS. 3 and 4, the hook member 7 consists preferably of a metallic stamping having a base portion 9 and a reversely curved hook portion 8 which are spaced from one another so as to receive the loop or eye 6. The central portion of the hook portion 8 is preferably pierced or cut-out, as at 10, for the purpose of lightening the construction of the hook and also for the purpose of providing a staple-like prong 12.

The central portion of the base portion 9 is also pierced or cut-out substantially in the form of an hour-glass, as at 13, so as to provide a pair of arcuate or semi-circular tongue-like projections 14. At one end of the base por tion 9, there is provided a pair of spaced-apart staple-like prongs 15.

In forming the hook 7 from the blank, as shown in FIG. 3, the hook portion 8 is bent over the base portion 9, as shown in FIG. 4, so that they are spaced from one another. The tongue-like projections 114 are bent outwardly from the opening 13 so as to extend outwardly substintially perpendicular to the base portion and disposed in the space between the same and the hook portion 8. The staple-like prongs 12 and 15 are bent in the opposite direction so as to extend outwardly from the base portion substantially perpendicular thereto on the side opposite that from the hook portion 8.

The assembled relation of the hook 7 and the anchor plate member 16 is most clearly shown in FIGS. 2 and 4 of the drawings. It will be seen that the staple-like prongs 12 and 15 are passed through the garment fabric by piercing and are received in the apertures 17 of the anchor plate 16 positioned on the opposite side of the garment fabric. The prongs are then deformed and bent over the bick side of the anchor plate so that the hook is securely attached to the fabric of the waistband.

In such assembled position, it will be seen that the tongue-like projections 14 are disposed in the space 18 between the base portion 9 and the hook portion 8 of the hook member 7. In engaging the hook 7 with the loop or eye 6, it will be seen that the loop or eye will cam over the arcuate outer front edge 20 of the tonguelike projections 14 and be disposed in the space 18 between the base portion and the hook portion. When the loop or eye is to be disengaged from the hook, it will be seen that it will cam over the arcuate outer inner edge of the tongue-like projections 14.

As a result of my invention, it will be seen that there is provided a new and improved fastener hook which is strong and durable in its construction. It will also be seen that the base portion 9 of the hook will also be maintained in spzced relation from the hook portion 8 due to the tongue-like projections 14 so as to insure proper engaging at all times of the hook with the eye or loop 6 with which it co-operates.

While I have shown and described an embodiment which my invention may assume in practice, it will be understood that this embodiment is merely for the purpose of illustration and description, and that other forms miy be devised within the scope of my invention as defined in the appended claims.

What I claim as my invention is:
