Application September 2, 1936, Serial No. 99,068
5 Claims. (0]. ‘24-36)
This invention relates to clips for securing to
gether portions of straps, belts, or the like, and
?nds particular adaptation in the joining of the
ends of belts.
e.
The aim of the invention is to provide an im
proved clip having various features of novelty
and advantage, and which is particularly char
acterized by its simplicity and economy of con
struction, the facility with which it may be ap
plied, its effectiveness in use in that it securely
holds the strap ends together, and which has
edges of the latter. As illustrated, I preferably
a neat and pleasing appearance.
bend the front wall Ill through a slight extent
both longitudinally and transversely so that the
side edges of the front wall will also tend to be
come embedded in the strap.

Other objects Will be in part obvious and in part

wall are prongs or teeth 14 which are preferably
of triangular shape. These teeth are of substan
tial length in order that when the clip is applied
to the strap ends the teeth will embed them
selves into the strap ends and thereby hold these
ends from being withdrawn from the clip. Be
fore the clip is applied, the rear wall is angularly
disposed to the front wall (as shown in Fig. 3) so
as to permit the strap ends to be threaded past
the prongs and into the clip from opposite side 10
pointed out more in detail hereinafter.
The invention accordingly consists in the fea
tures of construction, combination of elements
and arrangement of parts which will be exempli
?ed in the construction hereafter set forth and
the scope of the application of which will be in
dicated in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawing wherein is
shown, for illustrative purposes, one embodiment
which the present invention may take:
Figure 1 is a front elevational view of my im
proved clip as applied to the ends of a belt;
Fig. 2 is: a side edge view of the clip, the belt
being shown in cross section;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the clip before
it is applied to the belt ends; and
Fig. 4 is a section taken along the lines 4—4
30
of Fig. l.
'
Referring to the drawing in detail, it will be
seen that my improved clip is formed from a
single piece of sheet metal folded back upon itself
at one end and having a ?ange or lip at its1 other
end for securing the clip in closed position about
the strap ends. More particularly, my clip is
formed of an elongated blank which may be
shaped from a sheet or strip of sheet metal. The
40 clip has a generally rectangular front wall H)
and a rear wall H, the two walls being in spaced
relation and connected at their upper ends by
a curved or U-shaped bent portion l2. At the
lower end of the front wall I0 is a rearwardly
projecting flange I3 which laterally projects to
a distance greater than the distance between the
front and rear walls when the clip is attached
to the belt ends.
The rear wall, by preference, is of slightly lesser
width than the front wall and is of such length
that, when brought into parallelism with the
front wall, the lower edge of the rear wall is dis
posed adjacent the upper face of said flange. Ex
When it is desired to apply the clip, the strap
ends are threaded thereinto while the clip is in
the position shown in Fig. 3. Then the walls are
forced towards each other and into parallelism.
During this operation, the portions of the belt IO0
ends within the clip are squeezed between the
walls and the prongs and side edges of the front
wall bite into the material of the strap» The
strap S may be made of leather, webbing, cloth,
or other suitable material. The rearwardly pro 26
jecting free end of the ?ange I3 is then bent
upwardly into overlying engagement with the
lower end of the rear wall, thus providing a. look
ing lip ll. Thus, the front and rear walls are
secured together at their lower ends so as to main 30
tain the clip in closed position about the strap
ends.
It will be seen from the foregoing description
taken in connection with the accompanying
drawing that I have provided an extremely sim
ple clip which may be manufactured at a very
low cost, while, at the same time, the clip is fully
effective in maintaining the strap ends in se
cured positions.
As many changes could be made in the above
construction and many apparently widely differ
ent embodiments of this invention could be made
without departing from the scope thereof, it is
intended that all matter contained in the above
description or shown in the accompanying draw
ing shall be interpreted as illustrative and not
in a limiting sense.
It is also to be understood that the'language
used in the following claims is intended to cover
all of the generic and; speci?c features of the in 50
vention herein described and all statements of
the scope of the invention which, as a matter of
language, might be said to fall therebetween.
