' Application February 13, 1937, Serial No. 125,630 2 Claims. This invention relates to gloves. An object of the invention is the provision of a glove having a lace in combination with means in the body of the glove for tightening the lace, 5 and for retaining the said lace in position, where by the glove is retained upon the hand of the wearer. Another object of the invention is the provision of a glove in which the body portion is equipped 1O with a common opening for the ends of a lace and a pair of spaced openings, so that when the ends of the lace are passed through the openings said ends will be crossed and in frictional contact with each other while the walls of the openings 15 will frictionally engage the ends of the lace for retaining said ends in position when the lace has been drawn up tight for snugly retaining the glove around the wrist of the wearer. A further object of the invention is the pro vision of a glove having a lace encircling the 20 wrist portion thereof with the ends of the lace passed through openings of smaller area than the cross sectional area of the lace for frictional ly retaining the ends of the lace in position in 25 connection with the pressures of the wrist against those portions of the lace which are disposed at the inside of the wrist portion. (Cl. 24-266) proved manner, to the inner face I5 of the wrist portion l2. This reinforcement is substantially triangular in shape. The outer face of the wrist portion is provided with an opening 20 which may be termed a com mon opening, for end portions 2| and 22 of a lace 23. The outer face of the wrist portion is also provided with spaced apart openings 24 and 25. The reinforcement I3 is likewise provided with an opening 26 which is adapted to aline with the opening ‘20 so that the openings 20 and 26 form substantially a common opening for the ends of the lace 23. The reinforcement is also provided with an opening 21 which alines with the open ing 24 in the wrist portion |2. Another opening 15 28 in the reinforcement which is spaced from the opening 21 alines with the opening 25 in the wrist portion |2. The end portions 2| and 22 of the lace 23 are equipped with any suitable ornament, as shown at 30, and these ornaments are of suf?cient size to prevent the free ends from accidentally being displaced from the openings in the wrist portion. It also serves as ?nger-pieces for drawing the free ends of the lace in position for causing the wrist portion |2 to snugly ?t the wrist of 25 the wearer. to be understood that the invention is not con After the glove has been placed upon the hand of the wearer and after the end portions 2| and 22 of the laces have been loosened or moved out wardly from the openings 20 and 25 the lace may be drawn up to maintain the proper pressure ?ned to the disclosure, being susceptible of such on the wrist without inconvenience to the wearer. changes and modi?cations as de?ne no material This is accomplished by drawing on the ?nger pieces 30 outwardly from the wrist portion, and 85 since the openings 20, 24 and 25 are restricted This invention will be best understood from a consideration of the following detailed descrip 30 tion, in view of the accompanying drawing form ing a part of the speci?cation; nevertheless, it is 35 departure from the salient features of the in vention as expressed in the appended claims. In the drawing: Figure 1 is a view in perspective of a glove con structed according to the principles of my in 40 vention. 0 as compared to the cross sectional area of the lace the end portions 2| and 22 of said lace will be frictionally held by the Walls of the opening and prevent slippage of said free ends. 40 It will also be noted that the free ends 2| Figure 2 is a fragmentary plan view of the. glove showing the openings for the reception of and 22 of the lace cross each other at the com the end portions of the lace. Figure 3 is a view in perspective of the inside of 45 the wrist portion of the glove showing the end portion of the lace in position. Figure 4 is a transverse section taken along the line 4—4 of Figure 1. Referring more particularly to the drawing, 50 If] designates a glove which may be made of leather or any suitable fabric and has a hand portion II and a wrist portion I2. A piece of material l3 which may be of the same material, and from which the gloves have 55 been manufactured, is secured at M in any ap mon opening 20, and that the portions 3| and 32 of the lace which are located at the interior of the glove will be in engagement with the wrist of the wearer so that the end portions of the laces are engaged in a number of points which will prevent slippage of the free ends. Furthermore, if the laces have been drawn up too taut upon the wrist of the wearer, a move ment of the wrist will tend to release these end portions su?iciently to allow free circulation. Furthermore, the automatic locking of the end portions of the lace when they are drawn in posi tion, will compensate for various thicknesses of 60 2,113,731 wrists of persons so that the wrist portion may comfortably ?t the wrist without undue pressure. I claim: 1. In a glove having a wrist portion, means for securing the glove to the wrist of the wearer and vent slippage, the ends of the lace extending in opposite directions to each other. comprising a lace circumscribing the glove, the inforcement secured to the inner face of the wrist 2. In a glove having a wrist portion, means for securing the glove to the wrist of the wearer and. comprising a lace circumscribing the glove, a re wrist portion of the glove having a common open portion, said wrist portion having a common ing, a pair of spaced openings for the free end opening and a pair of spaced openings through portions of the lace, one free end of the lace being the reinforcement, one end of the lace being threaded through the common opening and one of the spaced openings, the other end of the lace 10 threaded through the common opening and one of thepair of openings, the other free end of the lace being threaded through the other opening of the pair and the common opening with the ends of the lace crossing each other at the com 15 mon opening, the ends of the lace where they cross exerting a binding action on each other, the area of the openings being less than the cross sectional area of the lace so that the walls of said openings will frictionally grip the lace and pre being threaded through the other spaced opening and the common opening with the end portions ‘of the lace crossing each other at the common opening and frictionally gripped by the walls of 15 said openings to prevent slippage of the ends of the lace, the ends of the lace where they cross ' exerting a binding action upon each other.
