BYMMQ %VENTORI ZfA Unite States Patent 3,092,118 HAIR URLERS Carl L. Otto and La Nelle Burnham Otto, both of 956 5th Ave., New York 22, N.Y. Filed Dec. 8, 1958, Ser. No. 778,671 13 Claims. ((1 132-40) The present invention relates to hair curling and setting devices, hereinafter for convenience referred to generical- 1y as hair curlers, and has particular reference to the general type of device disclosed in our prior United States Patent No. 2,842,140 granted July 8, 1958.
Curlers of the general character above referred to are particularly adapted to be applied by the wearer but their use in not limited to such application but is of general utilility, making such devices suitable for use in professional beauty shops.
Basically, the form of the device to which the invention relates and certain examples of which are shown in the aforementioned United States patent, consists of two major components consisting of a porous or sponge-like core or supporting component upon which the hair to be curled or otherwise treated is adapted to be wound, and a separable retaining component adapted to be applied to such supporting component and to frictionally engage the same for the purpose of confining the hair wound on the supporting component.
Incident to various uses to which devices of the general kind above described may be put, various different sizes of core or supporting components may be desirable to employ, depending upon the nature of the end result in the way of curling that may be desired. This involves the necessity for providing a retaining component or member which shall be more or less universal in nature in that it is adapted to be used with different sizes of core or supporting components. The general object of the present invention is, therefore, the provision of a new and improved form of device in which, in combination with a core or supporting component of sponge-like material and of generally annular form, a novel and improved form of retaining component is provided which will frictionally engage the core or supporting component in a new and diiferent manner to more reliably insure engagement between the two components against axial displacement, regardless of difierences in size of the supporting component that it may be desirable to employ.
In prior devices of the general kind under consideration resistance against axial displacement of the retaining component relative to the supporting component has been effected by means either of direct radial inwardly exerted pressure on the outer surface of the supporting component by elements of the retaining component (in the case of a solid supporting component) or by radial compression of the shell of the supporting component (in the case of a supporting component of annular form) between elements of the retaining component, one or more of which engages the bore of the annular supporting component and one or more of which engages the outer surface of the annular supporting component. Thus, in accordance with prior art concepts, radial compression exerted inwardly against the external surface of the supporting component is primarily relied upon to prevent axial displacement of the retaining component relative to the supporting component.
In accordance with the present concept the primary frictional gripping force preventing relative axial displacement between the two major components of the device is not generated by radial pressure exerted by elements of the retaining component pressing inwardly against the outer surface of the supporting component, but is established by elements of the retaining component inserted 3,092,118 Patented June 4, 1963 with supporting components having bores of different diameters, within reasonable limits.
Additionally a certain amount of compressive force may be exerted on the annulus radially between the bore and the outer surface of the annulus by the elements of the retaining components which engage the outer surface of the supporting component in order to hold the hair wound thereon in place, but such additional force is cumulative and not essential to the holding of the two components in axial fixed relation to each other. Because of the fact that radial compression of the annulus between elements of the retaining component engaging the inner and outer walls of the supporting component is not relied upon primarily as a means for preventing relative axial displacement between components, it will be evident that the retaining component may be so proportioned that relatively a very light pressure between the external surface of the supporting component and the elements engaging that surface can be employed, which in many instances is a highly advantageous factor in the practical use of the device.
The manner in which the above noted general object and features of the present invention are attained and the .several more detailed advantages to be derived from the .use thereof, will become apparent as the ensuing portion of .to which reference will be had in the ensuing description:

FIG. 18 is a view similar to FIG. 15, being a transverse section normal to the axis of the assembly shown in FIG. 17, and illustrating the relation of the two components to each other when in assembled relation.
Referring now to the drawings, and more particularly to FIGS. 1 through 3 thereof, illustrative of one practical embodiment of the invention, the curler comprises two components, one of which constitutes a core or sup porting member upon which the hair to be curled is intended to be wound and a second of which constitutes a clamping or retaining member for holding the hair wound on the supporting member.
In the embodiment illustrated in FIGS. 1 to 3, the supporting member or component comprises an annular body 10 which advantageously but not necessarily is cylindrical in form consisting of a porous sponge or foamlike material that may be formed of any suitable plastically resilient substance of any of the well-known types, thus providing a resiliently yieldable and readily compressible support upon which the hair to be curled may be wound. Such sponge or foam-like materials have relatively little stifiness and in order to make a practical device some form of stiffening in axial direction is required. In the present embodiment the stiffening in axial direction is provided by means of a hollow liner 12 forming a part of the supporting component, preferably but not necessarily of any suitable synthetic plastic material, and advantageously is provided with a plurality of perforations 14, so that the supporting component consisting of the body 10 of porous material and the liner permit ventilation through the body from the exterior to the interior thereof, and vice versa.
In FIG. 1, for illustrative purposes, the body 10 and the liner 12 are shown partly disassembled but it will be understood that in the finished article they will be in the relationship shown in FIG. 3.
For stiffening purposes it is not essential that the supporting component include a separate element, such as the liner 12, since by spraying or other equivalent means the internal wall of the body 10 may be stiffened by any suitable plastic material which on drying afiords a stiffening backing for the sponge-like material of the body 10.
The component comprising the retaining member, in the embodiment illustrated, consists of a strip of elastic material, which may be of spring steel of the kind ordinarily used to make the well-known article sold under the term bobby pin and with a suitable surface finish such as to resist corrosion or rust due to moisture to which in its normal use it will be subjected. Also, it may be readily made of one or more of the well-known elastic plastic materials.
In the form illustrated, the retaining member indicated generally by the numeral 16 consists of a return bend or loop portion providing two legs 18 and 20 joined by a' U-bend portion 22 and which in relaxed condition di- 4 verge from the U-bend portion 22. The legs 18 and 20 are twisted at 24 and 26, respectively, so as to provide two fingers 32 and 34, respectively, which extend in substantial parallelism respectively with the legs 18 and 20, to terminate in a region adjacent the lower or U-bend portion 22 joining legs 18 and 20.
While in the embodiment shown in the figures being described, the retaining member is shown as being made of elastic flat sheet material, such cross-sectional configuration of the material is not essential so far as the broader aspects of the invention are concerned and such. retaining member may be made of material of other cross-sectional configuration inclusive of wire of circular section.
In FIG. 3 the curler is shown with the several elements in assembled relation, without however the hair being shown wound on the supporting member 10, in the interests of clarity of illustration. As shown in this figure, the retaining member 16 is shown inserted in the bore of the annular supporting member and as will be observed, the two legs 18 and 20 of the return bend portion of the retaining member have been bent toward each other so that they exert lateral pressure against the walls of the bore of the supporting member. Also, this bending together of the legs of the return bend portions brings the. fingers 32 and 34 substantially into parallelism as they engage the exterior surface of the supporting member 10, so as to provide between these fingers a long and relatively narrow gap 36 for the egress of the root por tions (as distinguished from the free ends) of the hair wound upon and supported by the body 10.
From the construction illustrated, it will be evident that the retaining member 16 is readily adapted for use with different sizes and forms of supporting members having different diameters of bores, and consequently has a more or less universal application to curler supporting bodies of difierent sizes, such diilerent sizes being a common condition in the art, and obviously in order for the device to remain in assembled condition, some frictional or pressure contact must be provided between the retaining member and the supporting member. In many instances this has heretofore been provided by radial pressure exerted between one portion of a retaining member engaging the inner portion of a supporting member and one or more portions of the retaining member engaging the exterior of the supporting member; in other words, the holding power being provided by radial pressure exerted on the exterior of the supporting member.
In accordance with the present concept the pressure required to maintain the pants in axially assembled relation is supplied primarily by lateral pressure exerted internally of the supporting member, so that assembled relationship can be insured even though no substantial radial pressure is exerted on the supporting member and the hair wound thereon by the finger or fingers of the retaining member which are outside of the supporting member.
In the embodiment shown in FIGS. 4 to 7 the elements are basically of the same nature as shown in FIGS. 1 to 3, the body 19 being provided with a supporting core 12, perforated as shown at 14 and the retaining member having a return bend portion providing legs 18 and 20 connected by a U-bend 22 and having at their upper ends the return bend portions 28 and 30, respectively, to provide the downwardly extending fingers 32 and 34 for engagement with the exterior of the supporting body 10.
The essential difference between the embodiment now being described and that previously described is that in forming the retaining member 16 the legs 18 and 20 of the return bend portion of the device, instead of being bent as shown at 24 and 26 in FIG. 2, are bent to oblique angles as indicated at 38 and 40 as shown in FIGS. 4, 5 and 7, so that the return bend portions 28 and 30, instead of being substantially parallel to each other, diverge in more or less radial direction as is clear from the figures under discussion and so that the fingers 32 and 34 bear substantially radially against the supporting body 10.
In the example shown in FIGS. 8 through 12, inclusive, another modification of the retaining member is shown and for purposes of describing this modification it is assumed that the supporting body be of the same form as that previously described. This modification of the retaining member is particularly well adapted to be made from a plastic material although metal may readily be used and the principal difference between this modification and those previously described is that the legs 18 and 2% lie substantially parallel with respect to each other, being joined by what may be termed the return bend portion 22 of the element and having return bend portions 28 and 30, respectively, for the formation of the fingers 32 and 34, respectively.
As in the embodiment shown in FIGS. 4 to 7, inclusive, fiexure enables the legs 18 and 20 and the fingers 32 and 34 to assume the substantially radial positions indicated in FIG. 12, the position of the parts shown in FIG. 12, in relaxed condition being indicated in FIG. 11.
In all of the previously described embodiments, retaining members having two substantially parallel fingers designed to engage the outer surface of the supporting member and to provide between them a long narrow gap for egress of the roots of the hair wound on the supporting member have been illustrated and described, and while such arrangement is to be preferred because of the greater ability of the curler to maintain a relatively fixed position on the head of the wearer, rather than to be supported in a more or less wobbly manner, it is not essential that such particular form of retaining member be employed in order to obtain the advantages of the present invention, and in FIGS. 13 through 18 we have illustrated two additional embodiments of a retaining member in which only a single external finger is employed.
Both embodiments are shown in connection with supporting members of the kind previously described, including a porous outer body 10 and an inner liner or stiffened portion 12.
In the embodiment of retaining member illustrated in FIGS. 13 through 15, the element designated generally at 16 is again shown in the form of a fiat strip of elastically resilient material having a U-bend portion 22 connect-ing two legs 18 and 20, respectively. In this instance the leg 18 terminates short of the leg 20 and advantageously has a portion 18a inturned at the top or free end of the leg to avoid scraping the wall of the bore into which the retaining member is intended .to be inserted. The leg 20 is, as in the embodiment shown in FIGS. 1 to 3, twisted at 26 and provided with a return bend 30 to provide for the formation of the finger 34 designed to engage the outer surface of the supporting body 10.
From the foregoing description it will thus be seen that this modification of the device employs the same basic principles that are used in the previously described modifications, namely the primary gripping force between the supporting member and the retaining member being provided by the lateral expansion of the legs of the return bend portion of the retaining element, which is of a spring nature so that the retaining member may readily accommodate itself to supporting members having different diameters of bores.
The modification illustrated in FIGS. 16 through 18, inclusive, is of the same general character as that just described in connection with FIGS. 13 through 15, in that it provides for only one external retaining finger. The difference between the two modifications is that in the present modification the twist at 26 in the leg 20 is omitted so that, as is clear from FIGS. 17 and 18, all the elements of the retaining member lie in a common plane rather than, as in the case of the previously described modification, the internal legs providing the primary gripping portion of the device lie in a plane at 6 right angles to the plane of the portion connecting one of the internal legs with the external finger.
From the foregoing description of the several modifications herein disclosed it is obvious that many specifically different modifications may be made without departing from the scope of the invention and as to which it is particularly to be pointed out that neither the specific material or materials of which the retaining component is made, or the specific cross-section of the material of which the retaining component is formed, are essential to the exercise of the invention. Further, while in the specific embodiments hereinbefore described, the legs and fingers of the retaining component are longitudinally straight, they may readily be waved longitudinally in the same manner as a bobby pin. Also, it is again to be pointed out that the specific construction of the supporting component and the specific material or materials of which such component may be made is not critical to the invention. As to the latter component, structure thereof as disclosed in our copending application Serial No. 503,861 filed April 26, 1955, now U.S. Patent No. 2,994,327, may advantageously be employed. As to both the supporting and retaining components the critical factor so far as the invention is concerned, is that one or both components, and preferably both, be elastically resilient and yieldable, and that cooperation between the two components, to prevent relative axial displacement therebetween, is based primarily upon frictional contact between resiliently connected elements of the retaining component and the internal wall structure of the supporting component.
Consequently, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to the structures hereinbefore specifically described by way of example, but is to be considered as embracing all forms of devices falling within the scope of the appended claims.
