UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
FRANCIS J. SKILLEN, OF READING, MASSACHUSETTS, ASSIGNOR TO GEORGE W. CAPEN, OF SAME PLACE.
HAIR-RIBBON RETAINER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 595,926, dated December 21, 1897.
Application filed October 8, 1897. Serial No. 654,509. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, FRANCIS J. SKILLEN, of Reading in the county of Middlesex and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hair-Ribbon Retainers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a hair-ribbon retainer, and has for its object to provide a clasp IO or supporter for holding a ribbon in place on a braid of hair. V
The invention consists in the improved device which I shall now proceed to describe.
Of the accompanying drawings, forming IS a part. of this specification, Figure 1 is a perspective View of my improved ribbon-retainer. Fig. 2 is a View showing the reverse side of a braid of hair supporting a'hair-ribbon and my improved hair-ribbon retainer.
Fig. 3 is a section on line 3 3 of Fig; 2.
4 is a section on line 4 4 of Fig. 2.
The same letters of reference indicate the same parts in all the figures.
In the drawings, a represents the body por tion of the ribbon-retainer, which is preferably a plate of sheet metal bent near its ends and having teeth 1) formed on the bent portions.
0 is an eye on one edge of the plate. With said eye is engaged an elastic strap (1, preferably made in the form of a loop of flexible elastic material. To the free end of the strap dis affiXed a cam-lever catch 6, adapted to engage a hook f, formed on the plate a at a point opposite to the eye c.
When it is desired to affix a ribbon or bow to the hair by means of the described device, one edge of the ribbon is engaged with the teeth at one end of the plate a, and all the teeth are then embedded in the braid. The elastic strap 65 is then passed around the braid or plait d, embracing the same tightly, and is engaged with the hook f by means of the catch e in the manner illustrated in Fig. 4. The ribbon is thus secured to the braid and may be tied around the braid in the usual manner, the ribbon being preferably engaged with the teeth at the upper end of the plate and then turned down to cover the plate, as shown in Fig. 3.
To unfasten the device, the outer end or shank of the catch 6 is swung outwardly from the plate, the said catch during this operation becoming a lever, with its fulcrum on the outer end of the hook f, so that the described movement of the lever disengages the loop d from the said hook. When in position, the device is concealed behind or under the folds of the ribbon.
It will be seen that my ribbon-retainer is capable of being quickly attached and of securely holding the ribbon in place.' The retainer also holds the end portion of the braid and prevents it from becoming unbraided.
It is obvious that the device may be used in connection with other masses or strands of hair or fibrous material, such as the tails of horses.
I claim A ribbon-retainer comprising a toothed plate having a hook, a flexible strap attached to said plate, and a lever-catch on said strap adapted to engage said hook.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses, this 15th day of September, A. D. 1897.
