2 Claims. (01. 15—206)
This invention relates to improvements in
brushes and combs and more particularly to a
device for conveniently and quickly attaching the
said two devices to each other so that they may
5 be carried in a pocket or hand bag and be used
either separately or simultaneously.
It is the object of this invention to provide a
device of this kind which is simple in design and
construction, inexpensive to manufacture and
10 durable and ef?cient in use.
With the foregoing and other objects in view
the invention consists in the novel combination
and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter fully
described, claimed and illustrated in the accom
panying drawing in which
Fig. 1 is a side view of the improved comb and
Fig. 2 is a sectional View on line 2-2 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a sectional view on line 3—3 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a sectional view.
Fig. 5 is a sectional view on line 5-5 of Fig. 4.
Fig. 6 is a perspective view showing the simul
taneous use of the comb and brush.
Fig. 1 of the drawing shows a pocket comb
of usual construction having a back ll of sub
stantially oval cross section and provided with
coarse teeth. I2 for substantially one-half its
length and with ?ne teeth l3 for the other half.
A cylindrical brush I4 is formed of bristles twist
ed between a pair of metallic wires forming a
central stem l5 therefore which extends a short
distance beyond the bristles at either end of
brush l4. On the overhanging ends metallic
clips it and l‘! are suitably fastened by welding
35 or soldering them to the metallic stem l5. Each
clip consists preferably of a strip of hard spring
metal and is substantially oval shape in cross sec
tion as shown in Figs. 3 and 5. 7 These clips form
cooperating prongs adapted to surround almost
40 completely the oval ‘shaped back ll of the comb.
The lower end of each prong is outwardly ?ared
to slip easily over the upper curve of the oval
back and to close in on the lower curve thereof.
While on clip I‘! the ?ared portion i8 is of the
45 full width of the clip; on clip l6, it is narrower
than this width, forming a broad point as shown
in Fig. 4 so that it may slip in the space between
two of the coarse teeth l2 of the comb to lock
the brush against longitudinal movement on the
When the brush with the two clips is being fas 5
tened on to the comb, the bristles divide along
the top- of the back, being pressed apart thereby
to form a groove in the cylindrical bristles as il
lustrated in Fig. 2, the sides of which assist in
aligning the brush and comb and prevent trans 1O
verse bending of the stem when in use.
From the foregoing it will be seen that a very
convenient device is provided which can easily be
carried in a pocket either joined together or brush
and comb may be separately carried. When as 15
sembled, the comb and brush may be used sep
arately or may be used jointly so that the comb
ing and brushing may be done in a single opera
tion as shown in Fig. 6.
‘The construction of this device is so simple
that it can be produced and sold to the public for
a very reasonable price.
It will be understood that modi?cations may
be made in details of construction without de
parting from the principle of the invention and
it is desired to be limited only by the state of the
prior art and the appended claims.
I claim:
1. An attachment for a comb comprising a
stem, bristles thereon, said stem protruding at 30
each end of the bristles, a bowed spring clip- on
each protruding end for removably mounting the
stem and bristles on a comb and means on one
of the clips adapted to cooperate with the teeth
of the comb for preventing relative movement of
the attachment on the comb.
2. An attachment for a comb comprising a
stem, bristles thereon, said stem protruding at
each end of the bristles, a bowed spring clip on
each protruding end for removably mounting the
stem and bristles on a comb and a projecting ter-'
minal portion on one of said clips adapted to co
operate with the teeth of the comb to prevent rel
ative movement therebetween.
