Description

Nov. 12, 1963 E. c. SURABIAN HAIR BRUSH Filed July 13, 1962 J/Z/Z/Z i/ B Z473 5 WW I mj/zmw ll All United States Patent 3,110,053 HATE BRUSH Edward C. Snrabian, Somervilie, Mass. (30 Stearns Ave, Medford, Mass.) Fiied .July 13, 1962, Ser. No. 299,560 1 (Ilairn. (Cl. i159) This invention relates to a hair brush having a cleaning plate through which the tufts of bristles pass, the plate having a central stern which can readily be depressed against the restoring force of spring members to move the plate nearly to the ends of the tufts of bristles, thus pushing any loose hairs that may be caught by the bristles to the ends of the tufts whence the loose hairs can readily be removed.

For a more complete understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following description thereof, and to the drawing, of which FIGURE 1 is a plan view of a hair brush embodying the invention;

FIGURE 2 is a section on the line 2-2 of FIGURE 1;

FIGURE 3 is a similar section showing the movable parts in a different position;

FIGURE 4 is a section on the line 44 of FIGURE 1; and

FIGURE 5 is a perspective view of one of the springs shown in the other figures.

The brush shown on the drawing comprises a back member in the under face of which tufts 12 of bristles are embedded to project downward therefrom. This under face is preferably of oblong shape and the back member may optionally be made with a handle 14 extending from an end thereof. As shown, the under face of the back member 10 is recessed as at 15 to receive a cleaning plate 18 which is normally held against the under face. The cleaning plate 18 is provided with perforations 20 through which the tufts of bristles extend. The plate 18 also has a central post 22 projecting upward therefrom through an aperture 24 in the back member 10.

To hold the plate 18 yieldingly in its normal position against the under face of the back member 10, two leaf springs 26, 28 are provided. One end of the spring is caught in a notch 30 near one end of the back member 10, the other end of the spring 26 engaging in a notch 32 near the upper end of the post 22. Similarly, one end of the spring 28 is caught in a notch 34 near the other end of the back member, the other end of the spring 28 engaging in a notch 36 in the post 22 opposite the notch 32. The springs 26, 28 are sprung to the arcuate shape shown in FlGURE 2 to maintain the plate 18 in its normal position against the under face of the back member 10.

Patented Nov. 12, 1963 To prevent dislocation of the springs and to enhance the ornamental appearance of the brush as a whole, the upper face of the back member 10 is given the shape of a segment of a cylinder, the curvature of the surface extending from one end of the back member to the other. This cylindrical segment is divided by a central longitudinally extending channel 40 which is just wide enough to accommodate the springs 26, 28, and by a central transverse channel 42 which intersects the channel 40 at the center of the back member. The post 22 is located at this intersection. The intersecting channels divide the top of the back member 10 into four upstanding guard elements 50, 52, 54, for the springs. The transverse channel 42 provides room for the thumb or finger of the operator when the top of the post is pressed to move the plate 18 down to the position shown in FIGURE 3 wherein the plate is at or near the lower ends of the tufts 12. When the pressure on the top of the post is released, the springs 26, 28 restore the plate 18 to its normal position.

For ease of manufacture and for pleasing appearance, all of the parts of the brush may be made of clear synthetic resin material such as Lucite, nylon, or an equivalent.

I claim:

A hair brush comprising a back member having an oblong under face with tufts of bristles projecting therefrom and an upper face in the form of a segment of a cylinder curving from one end of the member to the other, said back member having a central longitudinal channel, and a vertical aperture through the member at the midpoint of said channel, a cleaning plate normally against the under face of said back member, said plate having perforations through which said tufts extend, a central post rising from said plate through said aperture, and leaf springs in said channel maintaining said plate yieldingly against said under face, each said spring having one end engaging in a notch in said post near the upper end thereof, the other end of each said spring engaging said back member.
