SAFETY-PIN.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N o. 646,241, dated March 27, 1900.

Application filed December 1, 1899. Serial No. 738,767. (N model-l which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

My inventionA relates to improvements in garment-supporters, and particularly to a pin designed to `fasten the upper edge of a skirt to the lower portion of the waist for the purpose of firmly holding said garments in their proper relative position.

I-Ieretofore a variety of devices have beenA employed for the purpose of supporting a skirt, amongthem, for example, ahook adapted to be fastened to the upper edge of a skirt and projected over the upper edge of a belt. Ordinary safety-pins have also been used for this purpose; but owing to frequent and severe strains the same are bent so as to become accidentally detached. Therefore the incapacity of the ordinary safety-pin to retain its proper holding capacity is a source of great annoyance. It is to overcome this unsatisfactory condition that I have devised the present improvement.

In the` drawings, Figure `1 is a side eleva-I tion of my invention, showingit asit appears in position. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the pin as shown in Fig. 1, the garment portions being shown in section. v

A representsthe lower portion of a waist. B represents the upper portion'of a skirt. C is the frame of a pin. At one end of said frame is a suitable clasp, such as D, which,

if desired, may carry a sheet-metal protect `ingplate E.

(Indicated in dotted outline in Fig. 1.) y

E is a pin carried at the end ofthe frame C opposite the clasp D. ,e

F F are lateral bends in the pin E, said bends being at about right angles to the pin and formed in a plane at substantially right angles to the plane of the frame C. These extensions are connected by a substantiallystraight bar Gr of desired length-say approximately one-half the length of the pin E.

H is the point of a pin.

` The length of the lateral bends F F should preferably be approximately equal to the combined thickness of the material of the waist A and the material of -the skirt B.

against the skirt just below the line of fastening. X X, Fig. 1; but owing to the fact that ythe plane of' the osetportion of the pin is at right angles to the plane of the frame the former will-be held in a substantially-horizon;

talposition, so that the lines of draft will be' taken against the sides of the bends F F. In

, this mannerthe strain is borne chiefly attwo points, and the pressure or pull is chieiiy in the line of the pin instead of laterally thereof. It is to this y fact, attributable wholly to the novel constructionvof the pintha-t the desired end is accomplished-to wit, the non- .'liability to accidental displacement.

Incidentally the construction has other ad vantages-to wit,the exposed portion orframe of the device will never stand out horizontally from the garment, but will rest flatwise and in a substantiallyvertical position snugly against the skirt, in which position it is se'- curely held by the' pulling tendency of the garments. l Because of this fact when a`belt I is employed, such as shown in Fig. 2, itwill rest against the frame and will not cause the same to be pushed against the. body of the wearer, nor will the frame in this position cause any unsightly bulging of the belt.

What I claim is In a device of the character described, a

frame, a clasp at one end thereof, a pin at the other end thereof, an offset portion in said pin including substantial right-angle bends connected by a substantially-straight bar laterally of but substantially parallel with the pi'n, said offset portion being extended into a plane at right angles to the plane of the frame. v

- Signed at New York, N. Y., this 28th day of November, 1899.
