JOHN PENDERGAST, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
WAI ergs ELT.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 608,903, iiateoinugust e, 189s.
Application filed October 14, 1897. Serial No. 655,202. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN PENDERGAST, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful'Improvements in Wiaistlelts; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description ofthe invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had. to theaccompanying drawings, which form a partof this specification.
My invention relates to waistbelts more especially'adapted for use by ladies, whereby a skirt can be securely held without any liability of slipping.
The invention consists, essentially, in a belt provided on its inner side with a number of line prongs or teeth adapted to engage with a skirt or other garment and prevent it from -slipping, as hereinafter fully described and claimed.
Inthe accompanying drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of a belt provided with my improvements. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing a modilied construction. Fig. 3 is a crosssectional view of the device shown in Fig. l, the section being taken between one of the ends and thel center of the flexible strip provided with the prongs.
I will iirst proceed to describe the preferred construction of belt, and referring to Fig. l the reference-numeral l designates a leather strap, which may be ornamented by embossing or otherwise, if desired, and provided at one end with a buckle 2 and near the other end with eyelets 3. Secured to the inner side of this strap is a lining 4c, the edges of which are turned over or overlap the edges of the strap and are secured thereto by stitching. Secured to the inner side of the belt thus formed is a strap 5 ot' leather or other suitable material, provided with a number of metal prongs or teeth `6. I make these teeth or prongs of exceedingly line wire and have them very closev together, so that they will yieldingly engage with and securely hold a garment Without any liability of injuring it. I also prefer to bend or turn the outer ends of the prongs upwardly at an angle, so as to enable them to take a better hold of the waistband of a skirt and thus prevent the skirt from slipping down.
In Fig. 2 I have shown a belt consisting of a strap provided with the teeth or prongs, as above described, and said strap covered by leather or other suitable material to conceal the heads or backs of the prongs or teeth.
`These prongs or teeth also extend nearly the Ventire length of the belt. A A belt constructed as above will be found very efficient in use, as the prongs will penetrate the waistband of a skirt, but owing to their iineness and ilexibility and to their being so closely arranged, almost inj contact with each other, they will not extend through the material,y and hence there is no liability of tearing or injuring the skirt.
` Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim isi Y 1. As an improved article a Waist-belt, hava ing secured to the inner side thereof, a strip of flexible material providedwith a number of fine closely-arranged yielding metal prongs passing therethrough and projecting beyond the outer side thereof, substantially as described.
2. As an improved article, a waist-belt comprising the strap having suitable fastening devices at the ends, and the flexible strip secured to said strap by turning downthe edges of the latter and stitching to said strip and said strip providedwith 'a large number of fine, closely-arranged yielding metal prongs, substantially as described.
. 3. As an improved article, a waist-belt comprising the strap; and the flexible strip secured to the inner side thereof and provided with a large number of closely-arranged yielding metal prongs passing therethrough. the outer ends of which are bent upwardly at an angle, substantially as described.
In testimony that I claim thev foregoing as my own I have hereunto affixed my signature in presence of two witnesses, p
J OlINT IENDERGAST.
