Application February 21, 1950, Serial No. 145,448
This invention refers to a glove holder and particularly one which has the ends of the jaws thereof provided with caps.
These capped ends may be used upon any type of glove holder whether made from strip stock with a continuous width of pattern or on those made from sheet metal with either plain surfaces or all-over embossed patterns.
One of the objects of this invention is to furnish a neat artistic end on the jaw without curling or rolling over the jaw end.
Another object of this invention is to provide capping of the ends in order to obtain smooth edges at the ends so as to prevent damage to the gloves.
Another object of this invention is to provide a superior design and finish to the glove holder and particularly the ends thereof which engage the gloves or about the gloves.
Another object of this invention is to provide a glove holder having its jaw ends so disposed that the holding enclosure is flat and perpendicular to the hinge connection in order to prevent accidental opening and loss of the gloves.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction, as will be more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the glove holder assembled;
Figure 2 is a fragmental view of one of the jaw ends prior to being capped;
Figure 3 is a perspective view of the blanked disc required to make the cap;
Figure 4 is a perspective view of the cap drawn as a cup, with a portion of the side wall removed to permit mounting on the end of the jaw pore tion;
Figure 5 is a perspective view of the assembly of the portions shown in Figures 2 and 4;
Figure 6 is a view similar to Figure 5 but showing the bottom view of the assembly;
Figure 7 is an edge view of the complete assembly shown in Figure 1 and illustrating the portions of the jaw ends as located at right angles or perpendicular to a line joining their juncture with the pivot or hinge pin.
In proceeding with this invention I use any style of body member with caps mounted on the ends which form the jaws by providing a head with a reduced neck and then capping this head.
With reference to the drawings, l designates one body member and II the other body member of the clasp each having ornamentation [3 therein. The members are blanked from metal, with a reduced neck M to obtain a disc-shaped head l2 of proper shape to fit in the cap. The cap is preferably drawn from a blank disc l in suitable dies, as a cup with end wall l1 bulged outwardly and with side walls I8. The side wall I8 is punched to form an opening Hi. This cup or cap is then positioned so that the opening I6 receives the neck 14 with the domed end H, extending over the outer surface of the head, while 2 the side wall [8 of the cap extends around the edges of the head. This cap wall 18 is then curled over as at I9 (see Fig. 6) so as to lock the cap on the head.
The jaws l0 and H are fashioned to provide the hollow space 20 between them so that the jaw capped ends will come together in substantially a straight line as shown in Figure 7 so that the line 2| which is along the inner surface of the capped ends will be perpendicular to a line joining the juncture of the ends with the pivot. Thus, any pressure which is applied directly downwardly or away from the pivot will not tend to spread the jaws and they will better hold in closed relation against any such pull.
A chain 25 may be attached to the handle end 26 of the jaw I0 and a chain 21 may be attached to the handle end 28 of the jaw H with a clasp 29 for the free chain ends for attaching the device to any other object.
1. In a glove holder, a pair of body members hinged together and having free jaw ends normally contacting each other and shaped to conjointly form a glove receiving hollow between the free jaw ends and the point where the members are hinged together, each of said free jaw ends being formed into a rounded head with a narrow neck and a circular cap embracing said head with the free marginal edge wall portion thereof rolled tightly into engagement with the head, said free jaw ends having the caps thereon extending in the plane of the said members and contacting each other edgewise when in glove holding position.
2. In a glove holder, a pair of body members hinged together and having free jaw ends normally contacting each other and shaped to conjointly form a glove receiving hollow between the free jaw ends and the point where the members are hinged together, each of said free jaw ends being formed into a rounded head with a narrow neck and a seamless circular cap with a side wall having an opening to receive the neck embracing said head and with the free marginal edge wall portion thereof rolled tightly into engagement with the head, said free jaw ends having the caps thereon extending in the plane of the said members and contacting each other edgewise when in glove holding position.
