This invention relates to men’s toilet acces
sories and particularly to a press for ties, espe
cially those of the four-in-,hand type.
like. The cloth is i'lrst saturated with `Water
which is then squeezed out by hand so that the
cloth remains entirely damp without dripping
Such ties, as is well known, soon become
creased and wrinkled on both runs of relatively
by a rigid top plate 6, preferably treated on its
short portions of their length or where the knot
is formed, and unless this wrinkling is eliminated
the tie ceases to present the desired appearance.
In such cases, a neat dresser discards the tie or
10 sends the same to the cleaners for treatment, es
pecially if he is away from home and traveling
and domestic ironing facilities are not available.V
It is therefore the principal object of my in
vention to provide a tie press by means of which
a tie may be restored to its smooth condition over
night, without any appreciable trouble or expense
to the user other than the original cost which is
slight. 'I‘he press requires no heat and is of such
size that it may be conveniently carried in a
20 traveling bag and is suñiciently light that its
weight is not noticeable.
A further object of the invention is to produce
a simple and inexpensive device and yet one
which will be exceedingly effective for the pur
25 pose for which it is designed.
These objects I accomplish by means of such
structure and relative arrangement of parts as
will fully appear by a perusal of the following
specification and claims.
In the drawing similar characters of refer
ence indicate corresponding parts in the several

The cloth in turn is then covered

In order to relatively press the plates together,
to cause the moisture from the cloth 5 to pene

vide a pair of elastic straps 1. These are secured
centrally of their ends on the underside of the
base. plate l in longitudinally spaced relation
thereon and at points centrally of its width as
indicated in Fig. 5. At their ends the straps are
provided with rigid eyes or loops 8 adapted to
releasably engage pins 9 upstanding from the
cover plate.
The length of the straps is such
that when they are lapped or folded over the
top plate from both side edges and the points 20
are engaged with the pins, the straps will be
stretched suiiîciently to exert the desired pres
sure on the plates. Said straps being secured on
the base plate only at a single point in their
length, the entire length of said straps is avail 25
able for expansion in order to» get the best re
sults from the use of material of this kind.
The pressure thus exerted by the stretched
straps not only causes the desired penetration of '
the moisture through the tie and its penetration 30
into the absorption pad 2 (which .is the reason
for the successful operation of the device) but
also has the effect of flattening or ironing out
press as in use.
the tie and eliminating any Wrinkles or creases
Figure 2 is a similar view of the cover plate
originally in the portions of the tie disposed in 35
Figure 3 is a perspective View of the base plate
and absorption pad unit.
Figure 4 is a detached view of the dampening
(Cl. 38-71)
Figure 5 is a transverse section of the base unit.
Referring now more particularly to the char
acters of reference on the drawing, the press
comprises a rigid rectangular base plate I on
45 which is mounted an absorbent pad 2. ‘I'his
pad is preferably of turkish toweling or similar
material and it may be permanently mounted on
the base or removably secured thereto as by
thumb tacks 3. The dimensions of the pad are
50 such as to enable the wrinkled or creased portions
of both runs of a tie 4 to be laid out in flat
side by side relation thereon as indicated in Fig. 1.
When the tie is thus arranged on the pad it is
covered by a piece of cloth 5 substantially the
55 same size as the pad and of soft muslin or the
the press.
If the tie is placed in the press at
night on retiring and left overnight, it will be
found to be in perfect condition in the morning
and sufficiently dry (due to the use of the absorp
tion pad 2) so that it may be immediately worn 40
Without further delay.
From the foregoing description it will be readily
seen that I have produced such a device as sub
stantially fulfills the objects of the invention
as set forth herein.
While this specification sets forth in detail the
present and preferred construction of the device,
still in practice such deviations from such detail
may be resorted to as do not form a departure
from the spirit ofthe invention, as defined by 50
the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim as new and useful and desire to secure by
