(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. » Y 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 15 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 25 detached from the non-elastic section; Fig. 3 is an enlarged section through the buckle; 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 35 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 buckle. 35 ' 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 wearer. 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 2 2,108,461 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: 15 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. 15 DIANA P.
