UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

JAMES DICKSON, JR, OF \VATSONTOXVN, PENNSYLVANIA.

SHOE-FASTENING.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 460,743, dated October 6,1891. Application filed March 20,1891. Serial No. 385.772. (N0 model.)

To all whom it may concern:

l;3e it known that I, JAMES DICKSON, Jr., a citizen of the United states, residing at at- -sontown, in the county of Northumberland convenient means adapted to be applied to the ordinary lace-shoe, and so constructed and arranged as to obviate the usual perforations for the reception of the lace, and to obviate the necessity of knotting or tying the laces and of lacing and unlacing the shoe when applied or removed from the foot.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear in the following description,

andthe novel features thereof will be particularly pointed out in the claim.

Referring to the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective of a shoe provided with a fastening means constructed in accordance with plication.

my invention. Fig. 2 is a detail of the tap. Figs. 3 and at are'details in elevation of the preferred form of eyelet before and after ap- Fig. 5 is a horizontal section through the top of the shoe.

Like numerals of reference indicate like parts in all the figures of the drawings.

1 designates the shoe -upper, having the usual opening 2 at its front, and the opposite edges of said opening are provided with a series of eyelets 3 projecting therefrom, so that said edges remain imperforate with the exception of the slight perforations formed bythe shanks. of the eyelets, as will hereinafter appear. I The eyelets at one side of the opening alternate with those at the opposite side, and a series of said eyelets are located at the opposite sides and near the upper end or top edge of the shoe, as shown at3. The form of eyelets preferred, and as illustrated in Figs. 3 and 4, are formed of short blanks of wire bent at their centers to form the eye 4, after which the two terminals are given a half-twist, as at 5, and oppositely disposed to form L-shaped fastening-arms 6, said arms and the eye being parallel. The eyelets thus formed are passed through openings in the leather and the arms clinched or fastened down by suitable tools, as shown, and leaving simply the eye projecting from the material.

7 designates the shoe-lace, and one end of the same is passed through the two lower eyelets, after which the ends are connected, as at 8, thus leaving one long terminal. This terminal is provided with a tap 9 of ordinary construction, with the exception that it has extending from its rear end a tail 10. The lace thus provided is passed alternately through the eyelets located at the edges of the opening 2 until the last one is reached, when the lace is passed, preferably, twice around the ankle or shoe-upper and then through a convenient eyelet of the series 3. After the tap has been passed through the eyelet the tail of the same, lying across said eyelet, prevents the withdrawal of the tap, so that this completes the operation of fastening the lace, and all knotting or tying is avoided.

To undo the shoe or loosen the same, so that it may be removed from the foot, the tap is grasped by the hand and drawn a short distance, so that it maybe inserted from the opposite side and passed tail first through the eyelet, thus disengaging the same therefrom, and by grasping the two sides of the upper they may be separated, the lace readily passing through the series of eyelets.

It will be observed that the described fastener may be furnished at a Very slight cost and easily applied to the ordinary lace-shoe.

Although the herein-described lace is shown applied for use in connection with shoes, yet it will be obvious that it can be used to advantage in other articlessuch as, for instance, leggins, corsets, &c..

Having described my invention, what I claim isv The shoe orother article, as described, having the vertical alternating lace-receiving eyelets along its opening and the additional horizontal series of eyelets, the lace secured at the bottom of the'opening, passed through the said vertical alternating eyelets and through my own I have hereto affixed my signature in any one of the horizontal series of eyelets, presence of two witnesses.

and the tubular tap 9 secured to the end of 1 1 T the lace and in the reair of its point of seour- JAMLS DIC/KSO)" 5 ance, having the engaging extension or tail Nitnesses:

10, for the purpose substantially as specified. R. IIOUSEL,

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as 1 JOHN S. MENGES.
