Fig. 3 is a sectional View taken on line 3-3 Y Fig. 4 is a sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the clamp used in the invention. ' The device is used for permanently waving 45 hair or for forming a curl in the hair. In such operations it is customary to use a metallic prong or rod 9 upon which a wisp of hair is wound to form the coils I0. The lower end of the rod 9 is spaced a distance from the scalp so that 50 proceeding upwardly from the scalp there is a Vwisp of hair II about which the clamping device may be clamped. This clamping device com prises a side rail formed from the spaced strips I2 and I3, between which is pivotally connected 55 one end of the side bar I4. space between the meeting edges of the cover ing sleeves I6 and I8. ’ The opposite end. 30 Vally from light metal such as aluminum or the like. This housing comprises the elongated por tion 23 and the bottom portion 24 which is slight ly enlarged. As >shown in Fig. 4 >this bottom por ~ tion 24 is cylindrical in cross section but the ' Fig.' 2 is a view taken at right angles to Fig. l of Fig. 2. gagement must be such that there shall be no> A covering housing »is provided formed gener ` The invention will be best understood by _a reference to the accompanying drawing which forms a part of this specification, and in which, Fig. 1 is a central, vertical, sectional view of 40 A similar side bar I1 is in structure, economical of manufacture, durable, sion of a clamp which will serve to clamp about the rolled wisp of hair and eifect a secure seal to form a foundation or base upon which the 35 rubber or other suitable yieldable material such while steam is delivered thereto for the purposes It is an object of the present invention to pro vide a device of this class which will be simple 30 cess iä and the bar I4 is covered throughout the major portion of its length with a covering `I6 of 35 sides at the bottom are ñattened out to provide the flat surfaces 25 so that the housing at itsY bottom or open end is substantially rectangular in cross section. The upper end 2_6 of the hous ing is reduced in diameter and into this reduced 40 portion extends the upper end of the rod 9. Mounted on> opposite sides of the ~lower portion 24 of this covering or housing are pairs of spaced lugs 21 and 28 upon which are swingably mount ed the adjusting keepers 29 and 3U. Each of 45 these keepers is provided with an angularly turnedlug-forming portion 3| and 32 which em- Y braces the lugs 21 and 28. A pin 29' is projected through the lugs 21 and'32 and theA lugs 28 and 3l and positioned in embracing relation on this 50 pin 29’ between the lugs 21 and 28 is a coiled spring 32', one end 33 of which engages the keep-er 29 or 38 and the other end 34 of which en gages the -bight 35 of the U-shaped memberf‘ which carries the lugs 21 and 28. Each of these 55 2 2,119,774 keepers is doubled upon itself in the lower end as at 45 to provide a body through which screws 36 may be threaded. Each of these plates I3 is doubled upon itself and upwardly offset as at 3l and provided with the outwardly turned, in clined portion 39 in which a slot 40 is formed. claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: , The screws 36 are adapted to engage in these 1. A device of the class described, comprising: a clamping frame embodying a pair of oppositely disposed, relatively-movable side bars; a ilexible 5 covering for the major portion of each of said side bars; means for moving said side bars relatively slots 40, these slots being of less width than the to each other for compressing the covering of one diameter of the head 4| of the screw, so that as against the covering of. the other; a housing open 10 the keeper is rocked outwardly at its upper end and the screw head moves inwardly on the gagement with one face of said clamping frame; at one end and mounted with its open end in en 10 inclined portion, the housing will be brought downwardly relatively to the clamp and secure ly held in position thereon, thus effecting an air tight seal between the housing and the clamp of said engagement members having a portion ex tended parallel to said frame terminating in an inclined portion, there being a slot formed 15 which serves as its foundation or base. Formed on two of the opposite sides of the housing and through said inclined portion and extending into said parallel portion; swingably mounted keepers engagement members carried by said frame, each projecting outwardly from the edge thereof is on said housing; and a head-bearing member a V-shaped tongue 42 which serves to engage at carried by each of said keepers and adapted for swinging into said slots for moving said housing 20 into Ysealing engagement with said frame and the meeting edge of the sleeves I6 and I8 and effectively close the ends thereof against leak ing. It will be noted that the slot 40, while ex tending through the inclined portion 39, also continues into the horizontal portion 43 so that as the screw head is forced downwardly on the inclined portion of the housing is brought closer into clamping relation with the clamp and base. As this movement continues and the screw head moves into the portion of the slot in the hori zontal portion 43, a locking of the parts in ñxed relation is effected. It is believed obvious that by adjusting the screw 36 relatively to the doubled over portions 35, the degree of pressure exerted by the housing on the clamp or foundation may be adjusted. In use after the parts 'have been assembled as shown in Fig. l and prior to the delivery of. steam thereto, it is customary to close the Vent opening L46 which is formed adjacent the upper end of the fio housing and deliver air into the housing under locking the same in such engagement. 2.~ In a device of the class described, a clamping frame; engagement members carried by said clamping frame, each of said engagement mem bers having a portion extending parallel to said frame terminating in a portion inclined to said frame, there being a slot formed in said inclined portion and extending into said parallel portion; housing mounted on said frame; swingable keepers mounted on said housing; and a head bearing member carried by each of said keepers swingable into each of said slots, the head thereof engaging in succession said inclined portion and said parallel portion for moving said housing into sealing relation with said frame and locking the same in such relation. 3. A device of the class described, comprising: a clamping frame embodying a pair of oppositely disposed relatively movable bars; a flexible cover pressure to determine whether or not an air ing on each of said bars; means for moving said tight connection has or clamping member. anopening 4B formed housing and inserted bars into and locking the same in clamping rela tion relatively to each other for clamping said been made with the base A fitting 41 is mountedrin in the lower portion of the into this fitting, which is generally of flexible material, is a nozzle 49 of a steam tube 5B which serves to lead steam from a suitable source of supply. It is believed that the compactness and light ness of the device is easily ascertained from the description thus far given and that the advan îages enumerated as being sought are thus ac complished and while I have illustrated the type of structure which has proven most satisfactory inuse, I do not wish to limit myself, to the precise details shown but to avail myself of such varia tions, modiiications and changes therein as will come within the spirit of the invention and the scope of the claims appended hereto. Having thus described my invention, what I bars on a wisp of hair extended between the same; curling prong, said curling prong being adapted for having said vvisp of hair curled thereon, said curling prong extending vertically to the outer faces of said bars; an elongated housing open at one end and positioned with its open end in en gagement with said bars and extending vertically 50 to the outer faces of said bars and engaging the wisp of hair wound on said prong; engagement members carried by said frame; and movable keepers on said housing, movable into position with said engagement members for moving said housing into sealing relation at its open end and with said bars and locking the same in such rela tion.
