F. SOADY. GARMENT SUPPOBTER.
(Application led Mar. 30, 1899.) (No Model.)

PATENT FRANK SOADY, OF PEKIN, ILLINOIS.
GARIVIENT-SUPPORTER.
SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 626,845, dated June 13, 1899.
Application filed March 30, 1 89 9 T0 all whom, it puny concern:
Be it known that I, FRANK SOADY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Pekin, in the county of Tazewell and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improve'- ments in Garment-Supporters; andI 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.
This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in garment-supporters; and it has for its object, among others, to provide a simple and cheap yet effective device by which the garment may be held securely, yet without danger of injury thereto. The material is held with .sufficient elasticityto prevent tearing, stretching, or piercing of the same.
The device is composed of but two partsthose readily assembled and capable of manufacture at a triiiing expense.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will hereinafter appear, and the novel features thereof will be specifically defined by the appended claims.
The invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, which, with the letters of reference marked thereon, form a part of this specification, and in which- Figure l is an elevation of my improved garmen t-supporter with the clasp closed. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same with the clasp portion thrown open and a portion of a garment about to be applied thereto shown in, section. Fig. 3 is a substantially longitudinal section through the supporter with the garment clamped therein. Fig. 4: is a view of the blank from which the body portion of the device is formed. Fig. 5 shows the application of the device.
Like letters of reference indicate like parts throughout the several views.
The improved supporter consists of a body portion A and a clasp B. The body portion is formed from a single piece of material cut 'or stamped into the form shown in Fig. 4, having at one end the part a, which is by preference somewhat wider than the remaining portion, and the outer end thereof is cut away to form the notch or recess a', the object of which will hereinafter appear. About mid- Serial No. 711,137. (No model.)
way between the other end and the shoulders a2, at the junction of the part a with the main portion of the body, the latter is provided with the indentures d3, at which points the metal is bent, as will soon be explained. The two narrow portions d4 upon opposite sides of the notch CL form the eyes into which the wire of the clasp are received and in which they have movement. The blank is bent by suitable tools into the form indicated in Figs. l, 2, and 3, the portions CL4 being bent reara ward to form the eyes a5, which are offset forward, as seen clearly in Figs. 2 and 3, while the metal at the other end is bent along the line designated by the indentures a3, as seen at a6, being bent upward to form the spring portion a7 with the adjacent curve d8 and the hump 0,9, the end of the metal being free to provide the required amount of resiliency in the lower portion. This hump-is rounded or curved, as shown, so as not to present square corners to the material that is to be clamped thereon.
The clasp B is formed of a single piece of material, such as round wire, having its ends passed through the eyes a5 of the body portion from the inner ends thereof outward and thence again inward toward each other, as seen best in Fig. l, the ends b being either separated, as shown, or joined together by solder or otherwise, as may be found most expedient. The side portions b' of the clasp are joined by the cross-bar b2, and the side bars are of such a length as to require a slight pressure on the cross-bar to cause it to ride over the hump and into 4the curve a8 of the body portion.
The manner of use will be apparent. The body portion is secured in the usual manner to the webbing or other material C and theV stocking or other garment D placed over the hump a9 of the body, and then by pressing the clasp down over the hump the garment will,
be securely held without danger of stretching r tearing of the same, the spring portion at a7 and again that portion above the curve providing sufficient elasticity to allow sufiicient movement of the parts as to avoid injury to the garment. Slightpressure upon the under side of the lower end of the clasp will serve to disengage it from the under side of the hump, in the curve of which it has been IOO .` I Y I j retained, and when the clasp is disengaged it io portion bent back upon itself at one end to form a spring with a hump and acurve at the free end of said spring,`and a clasp pivotally mounted on the other end oi' the body portion and having a crossbar to ride over said hump and engage in said curve, as set forth.
2. As an improved article of manufacture, a gar-1n ent-supporterconsisting of a body portion with eyes at one end with its other end bent upon itself and extended upward and comprising a double spring-tongue with a Acurve therein, and a clasp pivotaliy mounted in said eyes and having a cross-bar to engage in said Curve, substantially as specified.
3. As an improved article of manufacture, a garment-supporter, consisting of a bodyportion with eyes at one end and its other end bent to form a spring portion, a curve at the upper end thereof, and a hump between said curve and the free end ofthe bent-up portion, and a clasp of Wire having its ends heid in said eyes and its side bars connected by a cross-bar adapted to ride over said hump and to engage in said cu rve,substantial1yas shown and described. l
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
