CHARLES MELVILLE HALL, OF TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, ASSIGNOR TO THE DOMINION NOVELTY MANUFACTURING COMPANY, LIMITED, OF TORONTO,

CANADA, A CORPORATION.

GARMENT-CLASP.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CnARLEs MELVILLE IIALL, a subject of the King of Great Britain, resident of the city of Toronto, in the county of York, Province of Ontario, in the Dominion of Canada, have made certain new and useful Improvements in Garment-Clasps, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to improvements in garment clasps as described in the following specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawings that form part of the same.

The invention consists essentially in the novel construction and arrangement of parts whereby a lever, adapted to close a pivoted member or upper part, pivotally spring held to its open position, is pivotally secured to the tail end of said pivoted member.

The objects of the invention are to obviate the difficulties and annoyances incident to the slipping or releasing of a garment at inopportune times, to simplify the construction and minimize the number of parts thus reducing the cost of production, and to de,

vise a clasp which will grip the garment securely and not injure the fabric and which may be easily and quickly detached from the garment.

In the drawings Figure 1 is an enlarged perspective view of the clasp gripping the edge of a garment. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the details of the parts to the clasp. Fig. 3 is alongitudinal section through the clasp showing it in its closed position and gripping the edge of a garment. Fig. 4 is a longitudinal sectional view of the clasp at tached to a strap of a hose supporter and shown in its open position. Fig. 5 is a front elevation of the clasp.

Like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in each figure.

Referring to the drawings, 1 is the back plate of the clasp which is preferably rectangular in form having the front and side edges 2 and 3 respectively flanged upwardly and the lugs 4 extending upwardly from said side flanges intermediate of their length, the said lugs each having a central circular orifice 5 therethrough.

6 is a slot through the back 1 at the forward end thereof and extending thereacross close to the side flanges 3, and 7 is a similar slot at the other end of said base plate.

8 is the upper member of the clasp formed Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed October 24, 1907.

Patented Nov. 10, 1908.

Serial No. 399,022.

of a single piece of material and having the downwardly flanged sides 9 and the lugs 10 extending downwardly therefrom and registering with the lugs 4, said lugs 10 having the teats 11 extending centrally from the outer face thereof and projecting through the orifices 5 in the lugs 4 pivotally securing said upper member to said base plate. The lugs 10 fit snugly between the lugs 4 thus holding the teats 11 securely within the said orifices 5.

The front edge of the upper member 8 is bent downwardly forming the gripping tongue 12. The tongue 12 in the closed position of the clasp projects through the slot 6 at the forward. end of the back 1 when the forward end of the member 8 is tilted downwardly. The end of the tongue 12 is narrower than the length of the slot 6 so that when the edge of a garment is placed be tween the ends of the two portions of the clasp, and the upper member depressed at the forward end, the said tongue pressing the fabric into the slot will not pinch or tear the said fabric between the outer edges of the said tongue and the edges of the slot.

13 are lugs extending rearwardly from the side lugs 10 and forming the tail of the pivotal member 8, each of said lugs having a central circular orifice 14 therethrough.

15 is a lever bent sharply intermediate of its length and having laterally projecting teats or studs 16 extending therefrom at the angle thereof, said teats extending through the orifices 14 and pivotally supporting the said lever at the tail end of said upper pivotal member.

17 is the fulcrum arm of the lever 15 which extends downwardly from the pivot point and engages the surface of the back plate 1 and is of such a length that as the handle 18 of the said lever is depressed the said arm will lift upwardly on the tail end of the mem her 8, turning it on its pivots and depressing the forward end until the end of the tongue 12 projects through the slot 6 in the back 1 and extends below the underside of the said back. The arm 17 of the lever 15 is so arranged in relation to the handle portion 18 that when the outer end of the lever is in its lowermost position the said tongue will have moved past the perpendicular line from the pivot point of the lever thus forming a truss beneath the back end of the said pivotal member and no amount of pressure against the forward end of the said member8 will cause the said lever 15 to swing on its pivots and releasethe said member.

It is necessary in such devices to have the jaws of the clasp spring held to their open position and I have provided a spring tongue 19 forming part with the back plate 1, punched up from the underside and arrange etween the sides of said base plate and extending upwardly so that the point thereof extends forwardly of the orifices 5 in the lugs 4. The spring 19 is of sufficient length to engage the under surface of the pivotal member 8 and be slightly in compression when the said member is in position. Thus it will be seen that the point of the said spring will ress upwardly against the said pivotal member forward of its pivotal point consequently holding the front end in its open position.

In securing the stra supporting tape 20 to the clasp, the end 0 the tape is inserted through the slot 7 from the upper side and extending along under the plate 1 is doubled over the raised edge 2 and inserted through the slot 6 from the to I side thus covering the edge 2 so that it wiff not cut the garment. The end of the tape 20 extends part way back under the late 1 and is gripped securely between the said plate and the other portion of the tape.

It will be seen that when the lever 15 is in the released position as shown in Fig. 4, the forward end of the pivotal member 8 willbe held in its open position by the s ring tongue 19 pressing upwardly against t e underside forward of the pivot point. The edge of the garment may then be inserted between the front end of the plate 1 and the tongue 12 of the said pivotal member 8.

When the pivotal member 8 is in the open position the arm 17 of the lever 15 will be resting fiat on the upper surface of the plate 1 and in order to grip the garment, the handle 18 of the said lever is pressed backward, and swinging on its pivots in the lugs 13 in the member 8, the lower end of the arm 17 sliding on the surface of the plate 1 will lift upwardly on the tail end of the said member 8,

depressing the forwardend thereof. 7

As the forward end of the member 8 moves downwardly the tongue 12 will ush a portion of the garment through the s 0t 6 and as.

the end of the said tongue projects below the under surface of the plate 1 the garment will be gri ped between the edges of the said slot and t e end of the said tongue and securely held from slip ing.

It will also e seen that as the end of the tongue 12 is very broad, a good hold is obtained on the garment, and there will be no danger of tearing ahole inthe fabric.

The formation of the various parts is-very simple and does not require the use of comlicated dies in the process of manufacturer he use of pins and separate springs is also entirely dispensed with and therefore the.

cost of production is greatly reduced.

What I claim as my invention is 1 In a garment clasp, a gripping member having an inwardly turned reduced front portion forming a broad tongue .and inwardly turned lugs intermediate of its length and extending'to the rear end, a lever member pivoted to the extreme rear'end of said gripping member and having a prying extension inwardly from its pivotal joint with said gripping member, and a base or supporting plate having lugs intermediate of its length pivotally joined to the aforesaid lugs and an upward y projecting forwardly extending spring tongue engaging the inner side of said gripping member and a lateral slot at the rear end and at the forward end, the latter receiving the. broad tongue of said gripping member.

Signed at the city of Toronto, in the county of York, Province of Ontario, in the Dominion of Canada, this 17th day of October, 1907.

CHARLES MELVILLE HALL.
