PIN.

UNTE i? FRANK B. WHEELER, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI.
PIN.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANK B. VHE-ELER, a citizen of the United States, residing at St. Louis, in the State of Missouri, have invented new and useful Improvements in Fins, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to pins, and it has for its object to provide a pin of very simple and inexpensive construction which will grip the fabric to which it is applied in such a manner that it will be held securely against displacement and loss.
/Vith these and other ends in view which will readily appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same consists in the improved construction of the said pin which will be hereinafter fully described and particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawing has been illustrated a simple and preferred form of the invention; it being, however, understood that no limitation is necessarily made to the precise structural details therein exhibited, but that changes, alterations and modifications within the scope of the appended claims may be resorted to when desired. In the drawing, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a pin constructed in accordance with the invention. Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 2 2 in Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a view in elevation showing the pin applied to a piece of fabric or drapery. Fig. 4 is a sectional View taken on the plane indicated by the line 4--4 in Fig. 3.
Corresponding parts in the several figures are denoted by like characters of reference.
The improved pin, which may be of any desired dimensions, is formed of ordinary spring wire and it comprises the elongated shank or body 1 which is reduced at one end to form the terminal point 2, and the opposite end of which is provided with a head consisting of a coil or eye 3, the terminal arm of which 4: extends transversely across the shank or body 1, and lies resiliently in contact therewith under the torsion of the loop or eye 3 which is properly twisted or formed to produce the desired effect.
The exact shape or configuration of the loop or eye 3 may be varied within the scope of the invention, in the drawings, an eye of approximately rectangular form, with rounded corners, has been shown, this form being regarded as convenient for the reason that Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed March 12, 1907.
Patented March 8, 1908.
Serial No. 362,044.
the side 5 of the rectangular headwhich lies opposite to the terminal arm 4 presents a blunt extended surface by which the pin may be conveniently manipulated or pushed into the fabric or material to which it is to be applied. It is also regarded as convenient to offset the head 3 to one side of the shank or body, as will be clearly seen by reference to the figures of the drawing, but I do not wish to be regarded as confining myself in this regard to the precise construction herein shown.
When the pin is driven home, the terminal arm 1 will engage the fold or layer of fabric or material lying adjacent to the shank 1, between the latter and the said terminal arm, which latter will grip the fabric or material and hold it with sufficient tenacity to preclude the possibility of the pin being displaced by ordinary courses; it being plainly shown in Fig. 4 how the fabric or material is gripped or pressed between the shank or body 1, vand the terminal arm 4 of the head of the pin; the latter may, by the exercise of ordinary caution, be very readily removed without `danger of injuring the fabric or material to which it is applied.
This improved pin as will be seen, is extremely simple in construction, and it may be manufactured in quantities at a cost which is but slightly, if at all, in excess of the cost of the ordinary headed pins of every day use.
The improved grip head of the pin will not I only serve to prevent loss thereof, and the annoyance frequently caused by the displacement of garments which have been pinned into place; but the extended surface of the head provides a convenient bearing point for the finger whereby the pin may readily be pushed home without injuring the fingers of persons of tender sensibilities as is so frequently the case when pins of ordinary construction are used.
Having thus fully described the invention, what I claim as new is A pin comprising a single piece of wire having an elongated body, said body being reduced at one end to forma point, the opposite end of said body being provided with a laterally extending arm, said arm being provided with a depending portion, the latter bein spaced from the body and disposed para lel therewith by means of said arm, a terminal arm formed integral with the depending portion and at right angles thereto, any height without having to irst maniputhe terminal arm being presented to and late the terminal arm. 10 spaced apart from the laterally extending In testimony whereof, I aflix my signature arrn and resiliently engaging the body for in presence of two witnesses.
5 locking the said pin in the apparel, the end of i FRANK B. WHEELER.
the said terminal arm extending over and Vitnesses: beyond the body portion, said end being HENRY BAYER, blunt for allowing the pin to be adjusted to JOSEPH PARKER.
