G. R. HARRIS. SUSPENDER' BUCKLE.
No. 475,860. Patented May 31, 1892.
UNrrEn STATES PATENT @EEIQE.
CHARLES R. HARRIS, OF WILLIAMSPORT, PENNSYLVANIA.
SUSPENDER-BUCKLE SPECIFIOATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 475,860, dated May 31, 1892.
To aZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, CHARLES R. HARRIS, of Williamsport, in the county of Lycoming and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Suspender- Buckles; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to an improvement in suspcndenbuckles, the object being to provlde a neat-appearing, simple, and durable buckle for regulating the length of supenderstraps.
A further object is to provide a buckle which is capable of quick and easy adjustment and not likely to get out of order, catch in the wearers garments, rust, break, or slip and lose its hold 011 the suspender-straps.
WVith these ends in view myinvention consists 111 a fiat band made toreceive and conform to the shoulder-straps of a pair of suspenders and a tongue having inwardly-projecting teeth thereon adapted to be forced into the strap passed through the band, in combination with a slide, the tongue and slide being so constructed and connected relative to each other that by the movement of the slide the tongue is forced inward to engage and hold the buckle fast to the strap; and it further consists in minor details and arrangements, which will be hereinafter fully described, and pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a View of my improved buckle complete. Fig. 2 is a view of the same with the slide-button removed. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional View. Fig. 4 is an inside View of the slidebutton removed, and Fig. 5 is a transverse v sectional view through the buckle.
A represents the body of the buckle, it being composed of one or more thin plates of metal bent into shape to form a flat band to receive andconform to the Suspender-strap. The front has a spring-tongue 1 cut centrally therein. This tongue may be shaped as desired, but is preferably T-shaped, and may be integral with the face-plate at its smaller end or connected thereto in a variety of different The tongue, as illustrated, is formed by cutting a slot 2 in the face-plate of the 1 Application filed February 1, 1892. fierial No. 419,926. (No model.)
buckle, care being taken to cut the tongue enough smaller than the slot to form ample clearance between it and the edges of the slot, so that the tongue may move freely therein and suificient space be left for the free passage of the shank of the slide as the latter is moved back and forth to effect an adjustment of the buckle. At the point where the tongue starts from the body of the buckle it is preferably pressed inward slightly as shown in Fig. 3, and thence gradually curved outward, so that at its free end it protrudes atrifle beyond the outer surface of the plate when in its normal position. At this free or enlarged end the tongue is bent inwardly and its edge is provided with teeth 3 3, adapted to enter the web or suspender-straps when forced inward to hold the bucklein place. In the back plate of the body and at a point opposite the teeth on the tongue a slot 4 may be formed, if desired, in order to facilitate and make effectual the fastening caused by forcing the teeth inward.
B is a slide button or disk. This is preferably round and may be made ornamental or otherwise to suit the trade in the particular line of goods upon which it is to be used. This button is provided on its inner face with shank or shanks 5 5 in the nature of oppositely-projecting lips. These shanks are located a distance apart a little less than the width of the tongue, and they reach outward far enough to take under the edges of the slot 2. So it will be readily seen that these shanks form cams, and as-the slide is moved forward toward the free end of the tongue they force the free end of the latter inward and cause the teeth 3 3. to enter the web, upon which the buckle is mounted. Thus the slide forms a lock, which is held in place by friction and is operated by simply moving it. The tongue being T-shaped, its toothed end acts as a stop to prevent the slide from becoming accidentally displaced. This means for fastening a buckle is simple and effective and easily and quickly operated, and it presents a smooth and neat-appearing surface, which can be ornamented to suit the fancy. It may be added, in conclusion, that in case the space formed for the shanks between the inner face of the face-plate'and the tongue is not quite sufficient by the offset given the tongue where it starts from the plate, or, in other words, is not quite equal to the thickness of the shanks, then the faceplate may be bent outward a little, as shown at points 9 9. Thus when the shanks are at this point the tongue assumes its normal position and the buckle may be slid on the strap; also, these raised points assist in holding the slide in position for holding the tongue against the web.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. In a Suspender-buckle, the combination, with a fiat metal sleeve and a clamping-tongue connected with the sleeve, its clamping portion extending inward, of a slide having sliding connection with thesleeve and constructed to bear on the tongue, whereby the clamping portion of the latter is forced inward with one movement of the slide, substantially as set forth.
2. In a Suspender-buckle, the combination of a flat metal sleeve, and a spring clampin g-tongue conn cted therewith, the clamping portion of the tongue projecting inward, and a slide having shanks extending through the spaces between the tongue and the adjacent edges of the sleeve and bearing upon the inner face of the sleeve and outer face of the tongue, substantially as set forth.
3. The combination, with a slotted sleeve and a tongue connected therewith, said tongue curving outward gradually from its point of connection to its free end and having a clamping-edge at its free end, of a slide bearing on the inner face of the sleeve and the outer face of the tongue, substantially as set forth.
4. The combination, with a Hat metal sleeve having a slot formed in one face and a tongue integral with the plate and lying within the slot, said tongue curved outwardly gradually from its point of connection with the sleeve to its free end, so that its free end projects outward beyond the outer face of the sleeve, of a slide extending between the inner face of the sleeve and outer face of the tongue, whereby when it is slid toward the free end of the tongue the latter is forced inward, substantially as set forth.
5.. The combination, with a flat metal sleeve having a slot in one side, and a spring clamping-tongue having a clamping-edge opposite the slot, of a slide having shanks passing between the tongue and adjacent edges of the sleeve bearing between the inner face of the sleeve and outer face of the tongue and adapted to force the tongue inward as it is slid in one direction, substantially as set forth.
6. The combination, with a flat metal sleeve having a slot in one face enlarged at one end, and a tongue formed in the slot and corresponding in shape with theslot, the enlarged end of the tongue bent inward and the tongue curved outward, so that the enlarged end of the tongue forms shoulders, of a slide having shanks which pass between theedges of the tongue and the slot and adapted to be stopped by the shoulders on the tongue, and projections on the outer face of the sleeve adapted to hold the slide in place, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
CHARLES R. HARRIS.
