1 Claim. (Cl. 241-3)
This invention relates to hose supporters of through the loop 4 as shown in Fig. 2, after
that type comprising an upper non-elastic sec
tion adapted to be sewed to the lcorset or other
supporting garment, a lower hose-gripping sec
5 tion and an intermediate section of elastic ma
terial connecting the upper section and the hose
gripping section.
One of the objects of the invention is to pro
` vide an improved hose supporter of this type in
10 which the ‘elastic section is a two-ply section
which the free end 9 of the elastic web is in
serted through the buckle 1 and gripped thereby
as shown at Fig. 1. This produces an elastic
section 3 in the form of an elongated loop hav
ing the two sides II and I 2 and which is con
nected to the two metal loops 4 and 8 and which
can be adjusted as to its length by means of the
buckle 1. The elastic section 3 is, therefore, a
two-ply section throughout its entire length, and 10
throughout its entire length and can be quickly ' this is an advantage because the tension or
and easily detached from the non-elastic sec~
tion by simply manipulating a buckle, and can
be as quickly and readily connected to said non
strain to which the hose supporter is subjected
will be divided evenly between the two sides I I
elastic section.
portion' thereof is required to resist the entire
vstrain to which the hose supporter may be sub
jected. The buckle l is shown as having a body
portion I3 formed with a slot I4 through which
the webbingis adapted to pass and is also pro
vided with a gripping member I5 pivoted to the 20
upper end of the body I3 as shown at I5, said
gripping member having the usual thumb-piece
Other objectsV of the invention are to improve
hose supporters in various other ways as will be
more fully hereinafter set forth.
In the drawing wherein I have illustrated a
20 selected embodiment of the invention;
Fig. 1 is a perspective View of a hose supporter
embodying the invention;
Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the man
ner in which the elastic section is attached to or

Fig. 4 is a view of the buckle;
Fig. 5 is a view of the metal loop connecting
30 the non-elastic section to the elastic section.
In the drawing I indicates the non-elastic
section which may be of cloth or tape or non
elastic webbing and which is intendedV to be
sewed permanently to the corset or other sup
porting garment, `2 indicates the hose-support
ing member which may have any suitable or
usual construction and is adapted to have the
gripping engagement with the hose, and 3 is the
intermediate elastic section connecting the non
40 elastic section I with the hose-supporting mem
ber 2. The non-elastic section I carries at its
lower end a metal loop 4 which is permanently
secured thereto. This non-elastic section may
be a length cf non-elastic fabric which is looped
45 through the metal loop or connecting member
4 and which has the two plies or layers thereof
sewed together by suitable stitching as indicated
at 5.
The elastic section 3 is made of a strip 6 of
50 elastic webbing which has a buckle 'I ‘secured
thereto at one end.Y
The hose-gripping member 2 is provided at its
upper end with a metal loop 8 adapted to receive
the elastic webbing (i.V This length of elastic
webbing B'is threaded through the loop 8 and
and I2 of the double elastic section so that no
I‘I by which it may be swung into or out of its
gripping position shown in full lines Fig. 3. The
body I3 of the buckle has ñngers I8 struck up 25
therefrom, said fingers being directed toward
the slot I4. The buckle is secured to the end
IIJ of the elastic webbing by inserting the eX
tremity I9 of the webbing between the fingers
I8 and the body I3, and then pressing said ?in«
gers toward the body with the result that the
webbing will be crowded into the open spaces
20 from which the fingers I8 were struck up.
The webbing then is folded over the end of the
fingers I8 as shown at 2l thereby forming a per
manent attachment between the webbing and the
I prefer to so assemble the elastic webbing 6
with the metal loops 4 and 8 that when the ends
9 and I8 of the webbing are buckled together
Vthe gripping member I5 and thumb-piece I4 of 40
the buckle 'I and the free end 9 of the elastic
webbing will be on the inside of the loop of elas
tic webbing as shown in Fig. 1. With this ar
rangement the outside of the loop will present 45
a smooth surface free from any sharp corners or
edges which might cause discomfortV to the
An advantage of the construction herein shown
is that if at any time the elastic portion needs 50
to be replaced this can be readily accomplished
by simply releasing the buckle ‘I and withdraw
ing the elastic webbing 6 from the loops 8 and
4, and then replacing the discarded elastic web
bing with a fresh webbing by simply threading> 55
the new webbing through the loops 8 and 4 and
buckling the ends together.
Or, if the entire hose supporter as shown in
Fig. 1 is sold as a separate unit, a person who
has one of these supporters attached to her
corset can easily replace the elastic portion, if
this becomes necessary, by releasing the buckle
'I and withdrawing the elastic webbing from the
loop 4, which is permanently attached to the
10 corset through the non-elastic section I, and
then discarding the non-elastic section I of the
new hose supporter and attaching the elastic
section to the loop 4 which is attached to the
corset as shown in the drawing.
I claim:
A hose supporter comprising a non-elastic
upper section adapted to be sewed to a corset or
other supporting garment, a metal loop perma
nently secured to said upper non-elastic portion,
a hose-gripping member having at its upper end
a second metal loop, a length of elastic webbing Cî
extending loosely through and being detachable
from both metal loops, and a buckle separate
from each metal loop and secured to one end of
the webbing, said buckle having a slot through
which the other end of the webbing extends, and 10
a gripping member for gripping the latter end
of the webbing, said gripping member being lo
cated on the inside of the webbing and the outer
face of the buckle below the slot being covered
by the webbing.
