ALFRED FORNANDER, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO WALTER J. VOGT,

OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.

HAT-GUARD Specification of Letters Patent- Fatented Oct. 8, 1907.

Application filed October 14,1905. Serial No. 282,759.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ALFRED FORNANDER, a subject of the King of Sweden, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Hat-Guard, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description. Y

My invention relates to hat guards, and among the objects sought to be attained by my invention are the following: 1. To render the connecting cord elastic rather than rigid, and shortened so as to exert a constant tension; 2. To make the clasp of such conformity that the cord may be readily wound upon the same and thus disposed in a compact shape; 3. To make one of the clasps of such conformity that it may be readily connected with a shirt collar; 4.. To make another of the clasps of such conformity that it may be readily secured to the sweat band upon a hat; 5. To provide for concealing the entire guard within the hat when desirable; and 6. To make the hat guard of such general conformity that it may be applied in a variety of related uses upon different styles of hats.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the guard complete; Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same with the cord wound upon the clasps so that the whole occupies a comparatively small space; Fig. 3 is a fragmentary perspective view showing a different style of clasp as connected with the cord; Fig. 4 is a side elevation showing how the guard is used so that the tension of the stretched cord is constantly exerted upon the hat in order to retain the latter upon the wearers head; and Fig. 5 is a perspective view showing the entire guard as concealed within the hat.

The clasps 6 are provided with apertures 7 through which passes a cord 8, the ends of the latter being provided with knobs or knots 9. Each clasp is provided with a pair of jaws 10 having rounded teeth 11 for enabling it to secure a firm grip. The jaws 10 are beveled slightly as indicated at the right of Fig. 1 to enable the clasps to be slipped edgewise over the objects to be gripped thereby. I

It will be understood that the clasps may be made smaller than is indicated in Fig. 1, and also that the form of the clasp may within reasonable limits be varied. The hat is shown at 12 and is providedwith a sweat band 13, these parts being of the usual construction.

In the form of clasp shown in Figs. 1 and 2 there are notches 14, and in the form shown in Fig. 3 there are notches 14 upon which the cord 8 may be wound as indicated in Figs. 2 and 5.

In Fig. 3 a clasp 6 is provided with a leaf spring 6 and with teeth 6 projecting therefrom. A lever 6 is mounted in bearings 6 and is provided with a tongue 6 for squeezing the leaf spring 6 so as to cause the teeth 6 to grip an object. This is accomplished by turning the lever 6 a quarter of a turn.

My invention is used as follows:The cord 8 is first wound around the clasp in the manner indicated inFig. 2, to such an extent that the cord will not quite reach the collar of the wearer. The clasp upon which the cord is then wound is mounted upon the sweat band 13 of the hat 1.2 and the cord is stretched, the other clasp being brought into engagement with the collar of the wearer as indicated in Fig. 4. By this means the stretched cord exerts a tension upon the hat and pulls the same gently but firmly down upon the wearers head so that the hat is not easily removed by the wind. The position of the cord relatively to the wearers head is immaterial.

While in Fig. 4 the cord is shown as upon the front of the wearers head I do not limit myself to this position as it is purely a matter of taste. Neither do I limit myself to any particular style of hat upon which the device may be employed, nor to its use to mens hats as distinguished from ladies hats.

Where the clasp shown in Figs. 1 and 2 is employed, the shape of the jaws 10 enables the latter to be slipped edgewise upon the sweat band or collar, the resilience of the clasp being such that the jaws afford sufiicient grip to hold the clasp firmly in position.

If the wearer desires to remove the guard and conceal the same he merely disconnects the clasp from the collar and places it upon the sweat band as indicated in Fig. 5. He may, if he desires, beforeperforming the above, wind the cord equally upon both clasps as indicated in Fig. 2, or allow it to remain loose as it is but a few inches long when not stretched. For ladies hats, instead of hat pins, one guard may be worn on each side.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1. In a hat guard, the combination of a metallic member provided with jaws having gripping edges disposed obliquely in relation to each other in order to enable them to he slipped over the edge of an article of clothing, and a cord connected with said member and provided with means whereby it may be secured to an article of clothing.

2. In a hat guard, a clasp provided with gripping jaws and with indentations, a cord connectedwith said clasp at a point adjacent to said indentations in order to enable said cord to be wound within the latter, and means for connecting another part of said cord to an article of clothing.

3. In a hat guard, a cord, means for connecting the same to an article of clothing, and a single metallic member of resilient material connected with said cord and provided with jaws having oppositely disposed edges, said edges being inclined obliquely in relation to each other to enable them to be slipped over the edge of an article of clothing.

.4. In a hat guard, the combination of a cord, means for securing the same to an article of clothing, and a spring member of sheet metal provided with an aperture through which said cord may be threaded, said member being further provided with oppositely disposed edges inclined relatively to each other whereby they may he slipped over the edge of a collar or the like.

5. In a hat guard, the combination of a cord, means for connecting the same to an article of clothing, and a
