CLASP DEVICE

Application March 3, 1936, Serial No. 66,789
8 Claims. (01. 24--248)
The present invention relates to 'an improve 3' to a short spring arm S, said balls being spaced
ment in clasps, and has for its principal object from each other a suitable distance, Fig. 3,’ so as
the provision of a resiliently held, self-adjusting to normally retain the bar 4 below and between
clasp which may be conveniently latched and un
them when the bar is in closed position, but
5 latched, and under which may be clasped various which balls 2 and 3 are sprung apart by the
articles for temporarily holding the same. Such
articles may be of varying bulk and ?exibility,
but due to the structural advantages of'the pres
_ ent clasp, such articles in single pieces, or plural,
10 are ?rmly held for instant release.
The present clasp is intended for attachment
to ladies’ handbags and the like, and preferably
exteriorly attached or mounted thereto by any
suitable means, not shown, but common in the
handbag and analogous art.
When mounted upon such handbags the clasp
may be used for clasping gloves, handkerchiefs
and other articles of personal wear.
The herein clasp is also adaptable to other
similar uses wherein articles'may be temporarily
clasped and held therein for convenience.
The foregoing and other features of advan
tage and function will be apprehended as the
herein description proceeds and it will be ob
vious that modi?cations may be made in the
structure vherein disclosed, without departing
from the spirit hereof or the scope of the ap
pended claims.

Fig. 2 is a side view, in elevation, of Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional View, taken on

Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 3, showing the
clasp member in the act of engaging or disen
gaging with the clasp lock members;
Fig. 5 is an end view, similar to Fig. 3, of a
40' modi?ed form of clasp end; and
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary side view of the modi
?ed form of Fig. 5..
The present clasp comprises a base member
B, preferably elongate, although it may be made
45 shorter than shown, having at, its upper end, as
viewed in Figs. 1 and 2, a pivot pin P, upon which
is swingably supported, as shown in dotted lines
in Fig. 2, a cylindrical clasp bar 4, upon the op
posite end of which is mounted an ornament,
50 such as a ball I, which also serves the purpose
of acting as a fulcrum means for manually.
manipulating the bar 4 into and out of lock
clasping position between the resiliently mounted
clasping balls 2 and 3. The lower end of bar 4
may be outwardly turned slightly, as in Fig. 2
so that when normally in clasped position, the
bar ball I will be held in about the same plane
as balls 2 and 3, Fig. 2.
The clasping balls 2 and 3, are ?xedly mounted
60
the rod 4 between them, the displacement being
10
indicated by the dotted angles 5—5.
The spring arm S is, in turn, mounted by a
spacing rivet A, which joins said arm at‘ its mid
portion to the base member B, said rivet A spac
ing the balls 2 and 3 a suf?cient‘distan'ce away
from the base B to permit of the angular dis 15
placement of said balls 2 and 3, when in action.
This spacing or clearance also serves the pur
pose, in conjunction with goods, such as a pair
of gloves, not shown, when caught under the
bar 4, of permitting the balls 2 and 3, when
moved apart an'gularly, by reason of the clasped
goods, to maintain their angular position, so
long as the goods or gloves caught thereunder
keep the bar 4 displaced and under constant ten
sion.
'
Owing to varying thickness of goods that may
be temporarily caught under bar 4, such as thick
25
or thin gloves and a pair of gloves and a hand

bar when it is acted upon to open or close said
bar, as illustrated in Fig. 4,‘ wherein the balls are
shown angularly sprung apart, by the entry of
by suitable af?xing means, such as rivets 2' and
kerchief, or other combinations of articles, ‘which
tend to displace bar 4 away from the ‘base B, the
operative position of bar 4 from base B, will
vary, from the lower position shown in Fig. 3
to just below the upper position Fig. 4, and thus
the lower inside quarters‘ of the balls 2 and 3
which contact with the rod 4, through their 35
common spring arm ‘S, exert a ‘constant down
ward tension on the bar 4, until the bar reaches
beyond the equators of the opposing balls 2 and
3, where it is free of further-tension and may be
lifted clear of the balls 2 and 3, as shown dotted 40
in Fig. 2, for the easy introduction of desired
articles under bar 4, which may then be returned
to its locked position. As thus described the in
side halves of the ball which contact with the
rod 4 between the position of Fig. 3 and the 45
dotted position of Fig. 2, act as cam ‘faces when
the rod is moved into or vout of locked position
between the balls 2 and 3.

.
In the modi?cation shown in Figs. 5 and 6,
the rod 4 is shown caught between two came 50
faced ears E-E, which are integral, angular ex
tensions from one edge of the, sheet metal spring
arm S’.
The‘ mounting of the spring arm S’ to
base B by rivet A is identical with the mounting
described for Figs. 1 to 4 inclusive, and due to 55
the cam-like contours of the‘inner opposed faces
of the edges of said ears E-E, the rod 4‘is oper
atively held and released, as described for Figs.
1 to 4 inclusive.
