Description

Horn holder

The present invention relates to a horn holder, preferably to a horn holder for sport fans, which can be applied on the clothing, preferably on the cap and alternately on the arm or head, for operating in this position.

It is well known that at festive occasions, such as parties for New Years Eve or other jamborees, as well as at sport events (e.g. football or ice-hockey matches), the fans use various tools for making sounds and noise. The most characteristic among them are the different French horns, horns, drums or rattlers.

The EP 0,610,380 describes a sport horn provided with a pressure tube, membrane and sound tube, in which the sound tube and one end of the pressure tube are in connection with the membrane, which membrane is spanned to the front face of the pressure tube, the sound tube is arranged within and coaxial of the pressure tube, and its front face rests flat against the central part of the membrane, coaxially with the front face of the pressure tube. Between the outer mantle of the sound tube and the inner mantle of the pressure tube a closed air gap is situated opposite to the membrane, and a sound hole is made in the wall of the pressure tube. In particular cases, various pipe ends can be connected to the sound tube for changing the pitch level.

Further tools are known by means of which sports articles, tools or other articles can be secured to various pieces of clothing, caps, belts, etc. The WO 02/15739 relates to a hat clip comprising two hingably secured jaws, a magnet and a golf ball marker. The hat clip may be secured to the inner hat band of golf cap, hat or visor and is designed such that a golf ball marker may be magnetically maintained on the outside of the cap while the jaws of the clip are hidden from view.

WO 02/87110 discloses a personal tool holder wherein a hook is supported by ribs or a slot of a housing, which is provided with a belt clip. A similar carrier hook device for supporting relatively light articles is described in WO 01/62120. The device comprises a front portion which extends in the longitudinal direction of the body from the belly upwards over the chest of the person and is integral with a rear portion curving up over the shoulder and continuing downwards behind the head.

WO 01/ 37695 contains the description of a multi-function belt clip assembly including a leaf spring and a housing with a recess engaging the first end of the spring. The second end of the spring is engaged to a belt clip.

However, the above holders and clips can not be used for fixing horns, mainly sport horns on different objects as clothing, flag poles etc. ensuring a spectacular positioning of the horn and, at the same time, operating them in this position: fastened far away from the mouth.

Accordingly, the object of the present invention is a horn holder provided with a horn holding element having nozzle connecting means, a flexible pressure tube connected to said nozzle connecting means and a fixing element carrying the horn holder and applicable to the clothing or other object, preferably to a cap or to a flag.

The fixing element is preferably an elongate plate made of some flexible material and having at least one bore and one or more head type pins as clamp joint, but it can be fixed by a clip, safety-pin, velcro, snap fastener (patent), headband or armband, as well.

According to a preferred embodiment, the horn holder is a resilient fork made of an arcuate band in which the nozzle connecting means is arranged in the form of a hole on the internal side. The band may form a circular curve of more than 180

The nozzle connection hole may be a pipe end protruding from the internal surface of the resilient fork and fitting into the sound hole of the horn, or alternately, it may be a nest opening from the internal surface of the fork and receiving the mouthpiece of a horn.

A flexible tube is fitted to the pipe end or nest communicating with the nozzle connecting hole, and it has a preferably changeable mouthpiece at its end.

More horn holder elements can also be attached to one fixing element, in which case the nozzle connecting holes of the horn holding elements and the flexible tube are connected by T-pieces and/or branch pipes fitting to the pipe ends or nests on the horn holders at one end and to the flexible tube at the other end.

A preferred embodiment of the invention contains two forks as horn holder elements connected by a T-piece forming two pipe ends in the forks and a third pipe end connected to the flexible tube. The forks are fixed on an elongated plate provided with bores and head type pins to be fitted into the bores.

The nozzle connecting means and/or the flexible tube and/or the horn holder elements are preferably made of plastics.

The horn holder according to the invention provides a spectacular and safe position simultaneously even for more horns and, at the same time, allows operation of the horn or horns ensuring good entertainment. The production of the tool is simple and also inexpensive.

Further details of the invention will be explained by way of examples with reference to the following drawings.

Figure 1 shows the sport horn according to EP 0,610,380,

Figure 2 is the side view of an embodiment of the horn holder according to this invention, Figure 3 is another simple embodiment of the horn holder,

Figure 4 shows a practical embodiment of the horn holder according to this invention and Figure 5 illustrates another possible embodiment of the horn holder.

On the cylindrical body of the horn 1 shown in Fig. 1 there is a sound hole 2 for blowing air through which the horn 1 gives a strong sound.

The horn holder shown in Fig. 2 contains a nozzle connecting means 4 being a flange 3 with pipe ends 5 and 6. Pipe ends 5 and 6 are connected by channel 7. A flexible tube 8 is connected to the lower pipe end 5. The upper pipe end 6 fits into the sound hole 2 of horn 1 , and at its end, channel 7 forms a nozzle connecting hole 9.

Bands 10a and 10b are connected to nozzle connection means 4 with velcro's 11a and 11b at its ends, by means of which horn 1 can be fixed to nozzle connecting means 4. The horn holder can be fixed to some object by means of clip 12.

Figure 3 shows another simple embodiment of the horn holder according to the invention. The nozzle connecting means 4 is similar to the one shown in Fig. 2: a flexible tube 8 is connected to one of the pipe ends provided with channel 7, meanwhile the other one fits into the sound hole 2 of the horn 1. Pipe ends 5 and 6 are arranged on a bow 13A, and at the opposite side, another bow 13B holds the horn 1. Bows 13A and 13B are hold together by spring meas 14. Bands 15A and 15 B are connected at their ends with velcro's 16A and 16B to bow 13B. The horn holder can be fastened by means of these bands 15A and 15B to some. part of the body (e.g. to the upper arm) or to an object held by the fan (e.g. to a flagpole).

The embodiment according to Fig. 4 can be used for the simultaneous holding and operation of two horns 1 , and for fastening them to some piece of clothing, preferably to a cap. The horn holding elements in this case are resilient forks 17 made of arcuate plastic bands in which the nozzle connecting means are arranged in the form of holes on the internal sides. The band may form a circular curve of more than 180 °

The horns 1 can be clamped into these resilient forks 17 so that sound holes 2 fit to the nozzle connecting holes 9 of pipe ends 6 protruding from the internal surface of the resilient forks 17. Pipe ends 6 on the resilient forks 17 are connected by a T-piece the third branch of which forms pipe end 5 connected to the flexible tube 8.

Resilient forks 17 are fixed on an elongated plate 19 provided with holes 20. Headed pins 21 are provided for producing clamp joints to some piece of clothing, preferably to the cap. Plate 19 is arranged on the external side of the clothing and headed pins 21 are clamped to the 20 holes from the other side of the material, fixing thereby the horn holder to the clothing.

Figure 5 shows a further embodiment, wherein resilient forks 17 are fixed to a headband 22. The number of resilient forks 17 is arbitrary, and their nozzle connecting holes 9 are connected to a branch pipe 23. Flexible tube 8 can be connected to the end of this branch pipe 23, provided with a mouthpiece 24 at the end. Preferably, this mouthpiece 24 can be changed in order to ensure the hygienic use of the horn holder by more persons. Headband 22 can be fastened by usual holes and pins similar to the fixing of the so-called base-ball caps.

The above examples are of course only for illustrating the invention, and they are not intended to restrict the scope claimed in the attached claims.
