0- W. BODEN SLIDE CLAMP May 12, 1964 Filed Oct. 5, 1961 Eng? \W NN NNN INVEN TOR. 0605M 14 5005 BY ATTOR/Vfy United States Patent ()fiiice 3,132,390 Patented May 12, 1964 This invention relates to a slide clamp for releasably connecting two ends of I a string or cord and constituting a means to replace a knot which may become snarled or too tight to be readily released. The invention has particular utility for tying or connecting the cords or strings of bathing trunks.

An object of the present invention is to provide simple releasabtle cord-tying means that is easily manipulated by one hand to release regardless of a dry or wet condi- .tion of the cord ends being tied.

Another object of the invention is to provide a device of the character referred to that clamps or binds the cords and safely retains this condition until released by a simple tug on the binding element of the device.

Tins invention also has for its objects to provide such means that are positive in operation, convenient in use, easily installed in a working position and easily disconnected therefrom, economical of manufacture, relatively simple, and of general superiority and serviceability.

The invention also comprises novel details of construction and novel combinations and arrangements of parts, which will more fully appear in the course of the following description, and which is based on the accompanying drawing. However, said drawing merely shows, and the following description merely describes, one embodiment of the present invention, which is given by way of illustration or example only.

In the drawing, like reference characters designate similar parts in the several views.

FIG. 1 is an eievational View, partly in section, of a slide clamp according to the present invention and shown in connection with the cord or puckering string of a pair of trunks.

FIG. 2 is an enlarged longitudinal sectional view showing the manner of assembling the clamp for operative association with the tie ends of a cord or puckering string.

FIG. 3 is a similar sectional view of the clamp in the operative position of FIG. 1.

The present slide clamp is shown as connecting the ends 5 and 6 of a cord or puckering string that is disposed in the channel 7 of the waist of a garment, such as a pair of trunks 8, here shown in fragmentary form. Normally, said cord ends 5 and 6, after the garment is donned, would be tied together with a bow knot to conform to the waist of the wearer sothe same can be quickly released to facilitate removal of the garment. Often the bow knot becomes snarled and/or becomes so tightened that hand manipulation will not readily release the same. This is particularly the case when said cord ends 5 and 6 become wet, as in swimming trunks. The present slide clamp is used instead of such knot tying.

Said slide clamp comprises, generally, a housing 10 of preferably flat form, a lock element 11 slidably disposed in said housing and cooperating therewith to clamp said cord ends 5 and 6 to place tension on the cord or string of which they are the ends, and means 12 to effect snap-retention of the lock element 11 within the housing 10.

The two members 10 and I I are preferably formed by injection molding of the plastic polypropylene, polyethylene, or other suitable light hydrocarbon polymer of high tensile strength, good elasticity, good rigidity, high-impact strength, mar-resistance, and good shape-retention. Such plastics are available in a variety of colors. Injection molding of the present clamp elements of colored polypropylene will provide anarticle that is attractive and can be matched to the garment with which operatively associated.

The housing 10 is shown as a tubular housing having similar fiat sides 15 and similar edge walls 16 connecting the sides to define a space 17 that is generally flat and open at the ends of the housing. The housing that is illustrated is tapered so as to be narrower at one end than at the other. At the narrow end, each edge wall 16 is formed to have a rounded inner face 18 between which is defined a flaring throat 19. A set of serrations or teeth '20 is provide in opposed relation in' each inner face of the walls 16, said sets of serrations diverging from the narrow portion of the throat 19 toward the wider end of the housing. After being slightly concavely curved at 21, the opposite inner edges of walls 16 continue toward said wider housing end as diverging faces 22. In this manner, the distance across the narrow part of the throat is substantially smaller than the flaring space defined between the serrations 2t concavely curved edges 20 and diverging faces 22 of the edge walls 16.

It will be understood that, although the sides 15 are of substantial thickness to be rigid in the normal use of the present slide clamp, the spacing between the walls 16, particularly at the larger end of the housing, allows for limited outward bowing or flexing of said sides, due to the elasticity of the polypropylene plastic used. It will also beunderstood that the cord ends, 5 and 6, from the throat end of the housing, may be entered into the space .17 enclosed by the sides 15 and walls 16, by way of the throat 19. In practice, said ends may each be provided with a knot or other enlarged or thickened form to prevent the cord ends from being pulled out of the housing inadvertently.

the throat 119 and the wider end of the housing, a handle enlargement 25 on one end of said bar, a preferably round edge surface 26 on the opposite end, and a set of serrations or teeth 27 in the side edges of said bar where said edges join the round edge surface 26.

In the operative engagement of the lock element in the housing, the serrations 20 in the housing and the serrations '27 in the lock element cooperate as opposed pairs to grip the cord ends 5 and 6 between them when the lock. element is projected inwardly toward the throat 19. The greater the tension or opposed pull on the cord portions 5a and 6a, the greater the grip at the serrations and the more securely are the cord ends5 and 6 tied together by the present slide clamp.

The means 12 has a two-fold purpose, one, to hold the sliding lock element 11 in centered position in the space 17 so the grip on the two cord ends is the same, and the other, to provide for ease of reeving the cords through space 17 without the restrictions imposed by the lock element and then slipping the latter into place in its operative position. To this end, the means 12 comprises two projections 28, one on each face of the bar 2 4, although only one may be provided, if desired, a bevel or cam 29 formed in theend of each projection that is directed toward the serration-provided portion of said bar 24, and bevelled cam faces 30 formed in the inner faces of the housing sides 15 at the wide end of the housing. Said cam faces 30 are centrally disposed between edge walls 16, as indicated in FIG. 1.

FIG. 2 shows how, after the cord ends 5 and 6 are threaded into the space 17, the serration-provided end of the bar 24 is introduced, from the wider end of housing 10, into the space 17 with the cord ends between the bar and the respective edge walls 16. When the bevels 29 encounter the cam faces 30, the projections will force the sides to bulge oppositely as the bar is introduced further into said space 17. By providing said sides with elongated slots 31 in longitudinal alignment with the cam faces 30, the projections 28 will be guided to and enter the slots in a snap-retention action that renders the lock element captive in space 17 but capable of longitudinal movement therein but not lateral movement. In ordinary use of the clamp, said element 11 will not become displaced from its above-described position wherein it may slide in space 17 to grip the cord ends or be manually retracted by a pull on its handle to efiect release of said cord ends. As shown, there is a non-rotational inter-engagement between the projections 28 and the walls of slots 31.

While the foregoing has illustrated and described what is now contemplated to be the best mode of carrying out the invention, the construction is, of course, subject to modification without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. Therefore, it is not desired to restrict the invention to the particular form of construction illustrated and described, but to cover all modifications that may fall within the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described this invention, what is claimed and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is:
