‘,2 Claims. (01. 24-245)
The, invention relates to' improvements in
clasps for garment supporters‘as described in
the present speci?cation and shown in the accom
panyingdrawing that forms a part of the same.
The objects of the invention are to provide a
simple, inexpensive ,and ,‘e?ilcient clasp particu
larly adapted for vuse with hose supporting de
vices, which will ?t snugly against the limb of
the wearer and present a smooth exterior where
by to be rendered as inconspicuous as possible,
and to provide a clasp which may be easily en
gaged and disengaged and which will grip the
fabric securely without injuring same and which
will not slip.
With the above and other objects in view the
invention consists in the novel features of con
struction, arrangements and combinations of
parts described in the present speci?cation and
more particularly pointed out in the claims for
novelty following.
In the drawing Figure 1 is a plan view of my
improved clasp with the clamping parts sepa
Figure 2 is a. side view partly in section.
Figure 3 is a plan view of the under side of the
base plate separate from the stud and its elastic
Figure 4 is a plan view ofv the blank from which
the structure shown in Figure 3 is formed up.
Figure 5 is a longitudinal sectional view
30 through a modi?ed form of clasp with the clamp
ing parts separated.
Figure 6 is a view similar to Figure 5 but with
the parts in operative engagement.
Figure '7 is a plan view of the structure shown
in Figure 6.
Figure 8 is a plan view of still another modi
?cation of the clasp.
Figure 9 is a longitudinal sectional view
the structure shown in Figure 8.
Figure 10 is a view of the under side of the
keeper shown in Figure 8.
Like numerals of reference indicate corre
sponding parts in the various ?gures.
Referring to the drawing 1 is the base plate
which may be manufactured of metal, or any
other suitable material, and which at one end has
a suitable transverse slot 2 therein for the recep
tion of the elastic tape usually employed to sus
pend the clasp from the garment, the said plate
5 O from a point intermediate of its length to the
outer, or lower, end thereof being of increased
width, as indicated by the numeral 3, and having
such margin turned backwardly in spaced parallel
relation to the body of the plate to provide an
intermediate opening _4 ‘adapted to slidably re
ceive the neck of the stud 5 whereby the opposed
sides of the head 6 of said stud will be slidably
con?ned between the peripheral bottom ?ange
formed by, the inturned margin piece 3 and the 5
body of the plate when the ‘clamping parts are
in operative engagement.
An elastic 1 secured at its one end to the body
of the plate below .the slot 2 and extending up
wardly over the face of the plate and through an 10
opening 8 in the plate to the under side thereof
provides the support for the stud 5. The body
of the plate I may be cut away as at 9, or may
be left intact whereby to provide an unbroken
In Figure 5 the stud, indicated by the numeral
Ed, is adapted to slide wholly within the space
between the front wall and the backwardly turned
?ange and is not provided with a head.
In Figures 6 and 7 the base plate, here indi- 2O
cated by the numeral H], has a longitudinal open
ing II therein for the reception of the head of
the stud l2 and this opening reduces towards
the lower end of the plate to a size slightly wider
than the neck of the stud.
The stud l2 extends laterally from a plate l3
which at its end removed from the stud is sus
pended from an elastic [4 which extends through
the base plate II) to the front thereof and is se
cured in any desired manner.
Secured to the plate 13 above the stud I2 is a
resilient boss Ma substantially equal in depth to
said stud and of such length that when the stud
l2 has reached its lowermost limit in the opening
H said boss will fill the remaining longitudinal 35
space in said opening. The boss Illa is con
structed of soft rubber, or other material having
resilient properties, and at its end adjacent to
the stud closely follows the contour of the head
of said stud whereby the whole device when 40
assembled will present an almost smooth and un
broken outer surface. The boss l4a also serves
as a means to hold the plates 10 and I3 against
longitudinal displacement in their locked posi
tions over the hose as the plate l0 being posi- 45
tioned below the head of the stud must likewise
extend around the top end of the said boss and
as the combined longitudinal space taken up by
said boss and the neck of the stud is substan
tially equal to the length of the opening H said 50
plates cannot move longitudinally in relation to
one another.
In Figures 8, 9 and 10 the base plate 15 carries
the stud l6 which is preferably substantially tri
angular in plan with its apex towards the top 55
end of the plate and the keeper I1 is in spaced
double wall form with the bottom wall having a
convergent slot l8 from the lower end thereof
for the reception of the stud. The keeper is sus
pended from the one end of an elastic element I9
which extends through the base plate near the
top end thereof and is secured in any desired
The elastic member is of such length that when
in its relaxed condition the relation of the open
ing in the keeper to the stud is such that the said
stud will not enter said opening until the ele
ments l5 and I‘! have been spread longitudinally
against the tension of the elastic the required
15 distance. It will thus be apparent that accidental
separation of the plates will be almost impossible
of accomplishment due to the fact that to sep
arate said plates they must be moved against the
tension of the elastic.
It is of course understood that the stud and/or
any other part may be constructed of rubber,
rubber composition, or any other material which
will provide a ?rm grip but which will not present
any sharp or hard surfaces likely to injure the
The present invention provides an e?icient clasp
of extremely small depth and attractive in ap
pearance and while the preferred embodiment
and certain modi?cations have been shown here
in and described it is of course to be understood
that alterations in details of construction and
arrangements of parts as come within the scope
of the following claims for novelty may be made.
What I claim is:
1. A clasp for a garment supporter comprising
a slotted upper plate having an elongated stud
receiving opening therein of reduced width to 10
wards the lower end of the plate, a lower plate
having an elastic connection with said upper
plate beyond the larger end of said stud receiving
opening, a rigid stud carried by said lower plate,
and a resilient boss extending from the face of 15
said lower plate adapted in the operative position
of the device to lie within the stud receiving
opening in the upper plate and engaging the top
wall thereof.
2. A clasp» for a garment supporter as de?ned 20
in claim 1, inwhich said resilient boss at its one
end closely overlies the upper side of said stud
and extends upwardly therefrom a su?icient dis
tance whereby to provide with said stud a longi
tudinal ?ller for said stud receiving opening.
