SUSPENDER AND'SPRING BUTTON PASTENER. No, 351,811. Patented Nov. 2, 1886 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
" OYRIL. ADIN SMITH AND: ROBERT P. MARBLE, or ATTLEBOROUGH, MASS.
SUSPENDERS-AND SPRING ,BUTTON-F ASTEN ER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 351,811, dated November 2, 1886. 7 Application filed May 5, 1886. Serial No. 201,154. {No model.)
it To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, CYRIL ADIN SMITH and ROBERT P. MARBLE, citizens of the United States, residing at Attleborough, in the county of Bristol and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful improvements, to wit, an Improved Suspender and Spring Button-Fastener; and we do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exactdescription ofthe invention,such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
Figure 1 of the drawings is'a representation of this invention, and is a back view. Fig. 2 is a perspective front view of a portion of the back of the suspenders, showing the improved manner of joining and fastening the elastic webs. It also shows the connecting chain or cord and the spring button-fastener. Fig. 3 is a perspective front view of one of the front ends of the suspenders, showing the 25 buckle, cast otf, chain or cord, and the spring button-fastener. Fig. dis a view showing the suspenders in position on the figure. Fig. 5 is a view showing the manner of making the buckle and cord-holder when weuse cords instead of chains.
A are two elastic webs, which, instead of being permanently fastened together at the back in the usual way by being either sewed 'or riveted, are crossed diagonally near their ends and fastened together by means of the specially-designed tongue-buckle B. This buckle has its lower part formed by a flap, b,
' rolled tightly over a wire, I), having at each of its ends an eye, 11*, to which is attached the connecting-chain O, at the lower ends of which is fastened the spring button-fastener D.
One of the main features of our invention, and wherein it essentially difl'ers from all other suspenders, is in crossing the webs A'diagonally near their ends at the back and fastening them together by means of the tonguebuckle B in such a manner that in a moment s time and without any appliances they may be taken out and replaced by others, which cannot be done if the webs are sewed or riveted together in the old-fashioned way. The said buckle, having tongues,holds the webs at what ever angle. they may be set, and by crossing the ends of the webs more or less diagonally in the buckle the suspenders will set high or low on the shoulders, as may be desired, and by occasionally changing the position of the buckle the said webs will last until completely worn out, and may then be replaced by new ones. The metal trimmings, being specially designed for durability, will last for years. The chain 0 and button-lo0p D are made of solid nickel wire, and will neither rust nor corrode. The webbings, as they. wear out, may either be replaced by new ones or by webbings from ordinary suspenders that have given out in some part of the trimmings, and would be otherwise useless.
The other feature of our invention consists in the novel construction of the spring buttonfastener D. It is a double loop formed from one piece of wire, having its free ends crossed diagonally where they pass through the ring g, the ends terminating in the balls 71, the large loop E being connected by the narrow neck f f with the small loop i. The loop, being made of smooth round wire, will not in any way injure the button or its attachment.
As may be seen by the drawings, when the button is passed through the large loop E it will bring up at the narrow neck f, when a slight pull or strain on the chain or cord 0 will cause the ring 9 to slide toward the balls h. This will spring theloop open at the narrow g neck f, and the button will slip into the small loop The loop will at once spring back into position at f, thus firmly securing it to the button, so that it cannot unfasten. By grasping the balls h between the thumb and finger and. pressing them together the loop E will open and easily slip off the button. The elasticity or spring in the loop E t causes it to give with every motion of the wearer and at once spring back into position again. Thus, any sudden or unequal strain, that in any ordinary suspender would either pull the button off the pants or burst the button-hole, would be equalized by the loop giving and preventing any damage.
We also construct a cord-holder, F, the lower end or flap of which is turned up over the cord 0 in the same manner that the flap b is turned up over the wire I). The upper end of this cord-holder F has a slot in it .which is passed over the flap b, when the same is turned up to hold said holder in place. The spring button-fastener D is fastened to each end of the cord 0 by any substantial method.
The spring button-fastener is fastened to the front ends of the suspenders or webs A by securing the upper ends of the chains 0 in a cast-off ring, a, which is hooked on the hook c of the buckle L. \Vhen a cord is used in front, it is secured by the means last above described.
Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new and of our invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. The improved suspenders, as described, having the shoulder-straps or webs A A crossed and secured diagonally in the buckle B, as shown and described, so that they may be readily detached and replaced by others, substantially as and for the purposes set forth.
2. The combination, with a Suspender-end, of the spring button-fastener D, consisting of the ring 9, double loop E i, made from one piece of wire, having its free ends crossed diagonally and passed through the ring 9, the ends terminating in the balls h, the large loop E being connected by the narrow neckf with the small loop i, substantially as set forth.
3. In an improved suspender, as before de- 30 scribed, in combination with the webbing, of the buckle B, constructed asset forth, having the lower part formed by a flap, b, rolled tightly over a wire, I), having at each of its ends an eye, I), the chain or cord 0, and the 35 spring button-fastener D, all arranged substantially as set forth.
4. In an improved suspender, as above de scribed, in combination with the webbing, of the front buckle, L, the cast-off c, the chain or 0 cord 0, and the spring button-fastener D, all arranged together, as set forth.
5. The improved suspenders, consisting of the spring button-fastener D, chains 0, front buckle, L,substantially as described, shoulder- 4 5 straps or webs A A, crossed diagonally through and secured in the rear tongue-buckle, B, in such manner that they maybe readily detached and replaced by others, said buckle B, and chain or cord 0, substantially as shown and 0 described.
In testimony whereof we affix our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
