ORVILLE L. MASON AND ROMAINE C. COLE, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO,
GARMEN'IZ-HOOK.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 531,442, dated December 25, 1894. Application filed April 25,1894. Serial No. 508.913. (No model.)
To aZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that we, ORVILLE L. MASON and ROMAINE C. COLE, citizens of the United States, residing at Cleveland, in the county of Ouyahoga and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gar Our invention consists of ahook provided with a spring-tongue intermediate of the side bars of the shank and hook proper, and which tongue is provided with a retaining bend or angle, forming the usual lock for the eye, and with a relieving bend or angle opposite to the same, whereby a new effect is obtained and the objections found to the use of other hooks are obviated, as will be fully hereinafter explained. V
In the accompanying drawings Figure l represents a garment hook embodying onrinvention. Fig. 2 is a sectional elevation thereof, taken on the line a:y of Figil. Fig. 3 is a like sectional view showing a modification of form, and Fig. 4 represents a modified form of hook embodying our invention and adapted to differentuses from the form shown in Fig. 1.
Arepresents the hook of the form com- I monly used with an eye, and is preferably formed of a continuous pieceof wire bent into the loops a, co, the straight sides b b of the shank, the bond 0, and the straight sides at d of the hook proper.
From the loop a, which completes the hook alone, the wire is continued in the tongue 13,
b and d d it lifts the hook part of the tongue B by means of the bend or angle 6, which springing down again behind the eye, looks it in the hook. In hooks having such a locking bend or angle, either on the shank or hook proper, orboth, great difficulty has heretofore been experienced inunhooking the eye, owing to the fact that when sewed upon the garment the eye cannot be readily or firmly grasped by the fingers, and the spring of the parts being so short and slight considerable force was required to effect the unhooking of it, as it was necessary to bend the two parts forming the tongue apart from each other.
In our improved hook the length of the part that springs in hooking or unhooking is more than double that of other forms, being all of the tongue from the eye (1' around the bend e, and to prevent the binding of the eye be: tween the bend e and the shank portion of the tongue, as it otherwise would, we form a downward bend or angle f in the shank part of the tongue opposite to the bend e, which allows the eye to pass between the shank sides I) b and the bend 6 without contact withthe shank portion of the tongue. 'At the same time the bend 6 offers sufficient resistance to the unhooking of the eye to prevent its being accidentally unhooked.
Although it is preferable, to continue the tongue backward in the line of thehook, as shown at g, so as to wholly or partially close the open part of the bend e, yet the tongue is entirely efficient if terminated just within the point of the hook, as shown in Fig.3, without the continuation g, and such construction is equally within our invention.
By locating the backward extension g below the plane of the hook proper, we entirely prevent the possibility of the tongue catching in the fabric to which the eye is attached, which it would be liable to do if it protruded above the hook whilethe eye is being passed under. the tongue. By our construction the eye in passing under the bend e only lifts the end 9 to a'level with but notabove the hook proper, as shownby the dotted lines in Fig. 2.
It is obvious that the hook canas well be made of sheet metal, by stamping out the blanks of the form shown in the upper part of Fig. 4:, and bending the same to form the hook A, which is suitable for uses which require a heavier and stronger hook than can conveniently be made of wire. Such a hook is suitable for use in suspenders, dress supporters, eurtain fasteners, dive, and is equally equally within ourinvention. That we claim as ourinvention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
A hook having a tongue extending through the shank and hook proper between the side 10 bars thereof, said tongue having a retaining bend extending from the hook portion toward
