JOHN C. JENSEN AND FRANK A. JOHNSON, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

GARMENT-SUPPORTER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 352,325, dated November 9, 1886.

Application tiled October 13, 1884. Serial No. 145,364. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, JOHN G. JENSEN and FRANK A. JOHNSON, of the city of Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a new and Improved Hose and Gan ment Holder, not heretofore patented, and which has not been in public use or on sale for more than two years, of which the followingis a specification.

The object of our invention is to produce a hose and garment holder at the smallest possible cost, not liable to get out of order, made out of one piece of metal or other elastic material, with a smooth surface, avoiding projections which would tear garments, simple in operation, so that a small child can use it, clasping the garment in such a way as to retain its hold without the tension of the elastic strap attached, holding the garment by the even parallel edges of the jaws by pressure the entire length of the jaws, thus avoiding cutting or tearing thegarment, and by the jaws opening upward and outward, by the elasticity of the metal, adapting themselves to the thinnest silk or heaviest woolen hose, or other garment.

The invention consists in a sheetmetal clasp for a garment-supporter, constructed as hereinafter set forth, and pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 shows the blank outlined and apertured to receive the supporting-strap, and also provided with a triangular opening at D, but not slitted or bent. Fig. 2 shows the same blank slitted before bending. Fig. 3 shows the clasp in front view complete. Fig. 4 is a central vertical section of the completed clasp in the line a: x, or through the vertical slit. Fig. 5 is a horizontal section through the transverse slit of the clasp.

In making a clasp in accordance with our invention a fiat piece of hard and elastic sheet metal maybe cut to the general form seen in Figs. 1, 2, and 3, and apertured at B to afford a crossbar, A, at the top, about which the strap of the supporter will be secured. At its lower end said aperture B desirably converges from both sides to a central point, 0, whence a vertical slit, 0 D, is cut of sufficient length to give a suitable hold on the garment to be supported. At the bottom of the slit 0 D is a transverse slit, E I, which preferably extends an equal distance on both sides of the vertical slit, as shown. Two opposing jaws are thus formed, which normally meet or very closely proximate, each other at the vertical slit, but which may be opened or parted by forcing the adjacent edges of thejaws forwardly out of the general plane of theclasp. The slit E P permits the jaws to be separated equally from top to bottom, and to bear inwardly also with practically equal force throughout their length. Onejaw,instead oftwo,will be practicable, but less desirable, and may be formed by a slit, E

P, located wholly at one side of the vertical slit. Alter the blank has been thus slitted vertically and horizontally, the lower end, M, of the blank is folded on the lineIJ, and bent upward against the body of the clasp on the back side thereof, as indicated in Fig. 4, with its edge G H above the slit E 1?. Finally, it is desirable to slightly curve the lower or folded end of the clasp outwardly into the concavoconvex form shown in- Fig. 5, to give greater rigidity in opposition to the strain upon the clasp in use and to facilitate the admission of the garment which is to be sustained within the slit 0 D.

The margin of the hose or other garment to be upheld is seized by the fingers through the opening B and drawn outwardly into the slit 0 D, the metal at each side of the slit yielding in this operation to allow the fabric to enter. Vhen the fabric is released,the opposing metal jaws, which are separated by the slit 0 D, close upon the fabric, and the latter is held more tightly as the backward strain thereon is increased. The upturned part M not only stiffens the clasp, but its upper edge operates as a stop to prevent the fabric from being drawn into the lateral slit or slits E P, and thus retains said fabric in position to be easily withdrawn from the slit 0 D by an upward and outward tension thereon by the fingers without being caught in said transverse slit.

We prefer to terminate the slitG D at its lower end in a triangular hole, (seen at D in Fig. 1,) which has the final effect of cutting off the lower corners of the jaws. This further prevents the fabric from catching in the jaws should it be possibly drawn on the front side below the edge of the upturned part M.

We disclaim all constructions of hose-supporters made of bent wire, and restrict ourselves strictly to a supporter made of sheet metal cut and otherwise formed, substantially as described and specified in the following claims, there being a wide distinction in the mode of operation, as well as in their practical efticiency, between these two classes of structures. Thus,'in a wire loop the slit opens only by lateral movement of the parts of the wires which form the slit, and the compression of said wires upon the fabric is exclusively that which is due to their resiliency. This fact, taken in connection with the rounded surface of the wire, has rendered such wire structures valueless for the purpose of hose-supporters. In the case of the sheet-metal device herein described, on the other hand, the opening of the slit which receives the fabri'c is produced not by a lateral but by a forward movement of the jaws at the sides of the slit, and the clamping effect of such jaws is due not only to their resiliency,which tends to return them to their original plane, but in part to the draft or strain upon the fabric engaged, so that the greater the strain upon the fabric the greater the compression which the jaws exert upon it.

The angular edges of the jaws when out from a piece of sheet metal, moreover, prevent the fabric from slipping between them, and the latter is therefore held against the strain upon the garment in a manner and to a degree utterly impossible in the case of a rounded wire-loop.

We claim as our invention- 1. The hose-supporter consisting of a piece ofsheet metal having an opening, B, a vertical slit leading downward therefrom, atransverse slit at the bottom of the vertical slit, and a stop attached to the lower end of the body, and located back of and extending above the transverse slit to support the jaws formed by the slits, substantially as described.

2. The hose-supporter consisting of a single piece of sheet metal provided with an openin". B, a central slit, C D, and a transverse slit, E P, and also having its lower end upturned on the back side to form a stop for thejaws formed by the slits, substantially as described.
