PHILIP H. LONG, OF NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOR TO LONG & KOCH, OF NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, A CORPORATION OF NEW JERSEY.

FASTENER- Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 11, 1907.

Application filed September 22,1906- Serial No. 335,707.

To (Ll/Z whmn it may concern.-

Be it known that I, PHILIP H. LONG, a subject of His Majesty the King of Great Britain, and a resident of Newark, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, have made and invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fasteners, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to an improvement in catches or fasteners for bracelets and the like, the object being to provide a device of this character which will be simple and cheap to manufacture, durable in use, and which will safely and securely lock the parts in proper position.

With these and other ends in view, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations of parts, as Will be hereinafter fully described and pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a View partly in elevation and partly in section of a bracelet having my improved catch applied thereto. Fig. 2 is a sectional view of a part of the bracelet and catch showing the sections of the bracelet separated. Fig. 3 is a plan view thereof. Fig. 4 is a plan View of the blank from which the fastener is made. Fig. 5 is a similar view of the blank, having the end ears or lugs curved or bent in order to be fitted within the end of the bracelet. Fig. 6 is a view in perspective of the fastener detached from the bracelet.

.For the sake of illustration, I have shown my improved fastener in connection with a bracelet, but it will be understood that I in nowise limit the application of my invention to such article, as it is well adapted for use in connection with necklaces, chains, garters, and other articles wherein it is desired to detachably secure or fasten the ends or sections thereof.

Referring to the drawings, A-B represent the two sections of a bracelet, hinged at G, into the end B of which is soldered or otherwise secured my improved fastener, the section A being provided with a plate a to engage therewith when the ends of the bracelet are locked together.

The fastener is struck up from a single piece of spring metal, the outline or shape of the blank being illustrated in Fig. 4, and comprises a body portion D, which at about the center of its length is bent backwardly in order to form a spring tongue, as hereinafter described. One end of this plate is provided with the ears or lugs (1 which as clearly shown in Fig. 5, are bent around into tubular form in order to nicely fit within the open end of the section B of the bracelet, the remaining portion of the fastener extending outwardly therefrom.

The forward portion of the body D of the blank, is bent backwardly, as illustrated in Fig. 6, forming the spring tongue E, the free end thereof having soldered or otherwise secured thereto, the plate or thumb-piece 6, whereby to depress the spring tongue when desired to unlock the ends of the bracelet.

The spring tongue E has struck up from the center thereof the catch F, provided with the groove or recess f, which when the fastencr is inserted in the open end of the section A of the bracelet, fits the plate a in said section A and holds the ends of the sections of the bracelet securely together. When the spring tongue is depressed by pressure upon the thumb-piece or plate a, the catch F is also lowered out of engagement with the plate a, whereupon the ends of the bracelet may be separated.

From the foregoing it will be understood that my invention is exceedingly simple in construction, very cheap to manufacture, as it is entirely formed from one piece of metal it has no soldered parts or sections, other than the small thumb-piece or plate e, and has no part or portion thereof slitted to weaken the same. Furthermore, from its simplicity of construction, there is little or no danger of its becoming disarranged, or of allowing the ends of the bracelet to become accidentally separated, and therefore is very ellicient in use.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

A fastener of the character described, consisting of a strip of metal bent backwardly upon itself forming abody portion and a Spring tongue, said spring tongue being pro- Vided with a stamped up recess portion, and having a thumb piece secured thereto, the sides of said body portion being bent to form lugs, whereby the fastener may be attached to the article with which it is employed, substantially as described.

Signed at Newark, in the county of Essex, and State of New Jersey, this 18th day of September, A. D. 1906. g
