No. 378,148. Patented Feb. 21, 1888.
ihvrrn "rn'rns Parana CHARLES A. PRESTON, OF GAMBRIDGEPORT, ASSIGNOR 'IO GEORGE FROST, GEORGE H. PHELPS, AND GEORGE A. FROST, ALL OF NEW TON, MASSA- CHUSETTS.
GARMENT-SUPPORTER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 378,148, dated February 21, 1888.
Application filed December 2, 1887. Serial No. 256,778.
To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, CHARLES A. PRESTON, of Gambridgeport, county of Middlesex, and State of Massachusetts, have invented an Innprovement in Garment-Supporters, of which the following description, in connection with the accompanying drawings, is aspecification, like letters on the drawings representing like parts.
IO This invention is an improvement upon the garmentsupporter shown in United States Patent No. 368,550, granted to me August 16, 1887, and has for its object to provide a locking device which will better hold the button in the 1 button-receiving loop, so that the supporter cannot move freely upon the button.
In accordance with this invention, the look ing device is composed of two parts or loops hinged one to the other. One of the said parts or loops of the locking device and the buttonreceiving loop are hinged or swiveled one to the other, the other part or loop of the looking device being hinged to the aforesaid part or loop, and so as to surround or inclose the button-receiving loop to be moved upon it. The button-receiving loop is substantially as in the patent referred to, it preferably having abroad or expanded portion to receive the button and a narrow portion at its outer end 0 to receive the shank or attaching device or material of the button 5 and in this my present invention the locking device forces the shank of the button into said narrow portion, or into the outer end of the buttonreceiving loop,
5 holding it there firmly.
Figure 1 shows in front elevation a garmentsupporter embodying this invention. Fig. 2
shows in front elevation a modified form of gar-.
ment-supporter embodying this invention, and
Fig. 3 shows in front elevation another modified form of garment-supporter embodying this invention.
Referring to Figs. 1 and 3, the button-re ceiving loop is made of wire and has a broad 5 or expanded portion, as a, which is narrowed or tapered toward its outer end, as at a. The
ends of the wire or material of which the button-receiving loop is composed are turned over to form eyes a which encircle the material of (No model.)
that part of the locking device which consti- 5o tutes the strap-receiving portion 5. The wire forming the eyes a is so bent as to set the eyes at an angle, in order that they may bind against the wire or other material constituting the strap-receiving portion, and thereby enable the locking device to have a spring-like action, as in the patent referred to. The looking device is herein shown as composed of two parts or loops, as and Z), the part or loop I) having attached to it the strap 0 and the part or loop Z) engaging the shank or attaching means for the button, which attaching means may be thread or other material. The part or loop Z) surrounds or incloses the outer end of the button-receiving loop and is hinged or 6 5 swiveled to the strap-receiving portion at b". The hinge Z) permits the loop I) to be moved toward the strap 0 to expose the broad portion of the button-receiving loop a, and thereafter, the button having been passed through said loop a, the said loop b will be moved toward the outer end, a, of the buttonreceivingloop, and thereby force the shank portion of the but ton into said narrowed or tapered part of the loop and there hold it firmly. Instead of the spring given to the locking device by engaging at one end the outer end of the button-receiving loop and at the other end the inwardlyturned eyes of the button-receiving loop, any suitable spring may be employed.
In Fig. 2 I have shown the strap-receiving portion as a component part of the loop-reeeiving portion a, and the locking device con sists of the shank-engaging loop I) and a loop, b, hinged one to the other, said loop 6 being hinged to the strap-receiving portion of the button-receiving loop. By this modification it will be seen that the same resultis obtained as in the form shown in Figs. 1 and 3.
I claim- 1. Theherein-describedgarincut-supporter, consisting of the jointed locking device, substantially as herein specified, combined with the button-receiving loop a, said locking device and loop being hinged or swiveled one to the other, as and for the purposes set forth.
