tion 20 which encircles and holds the cord 3|)

I do not, therefore, desire to limit myself to the
specific constructions illustrated, but intend to
cover my invention broadly in whatever form its
ed to receive the cord but which may be moved
away from the cord and act as a locking device
in similar manner to that of the portion 9 of
the needle 5.
¿In applying this optional construction to the
10 hat band, the cord 30 together with the needle
3| and stop device I9 is withdrawn from the loop
25 of the elastic band and the needle 3| is then
passed through the hat band from the inside of ,
the band, or in other words, from the space be-V
15 tween the band and the body portion of the hat
through the band. The needle is then gripped
and the cord is drawn through the opening
formed by the needle until it is stopped by the
principle may be utilized.
I claim:
1. A device for retaining a hat upon the head
of the wearer comprising a band having loops at
each end thereof, cords inserted through the said
loops, said cords having attached thereto pins
which are adapted to be secured to the hat at 10
spaced points adjacent the base of the brim
thereof and to be engaged by said hat in self
locking relationship.
2. A device for retaining a hat upon the head
of the wearer comprising a relatively wide band of 15
Velastic material, elastic cords engaging each end
of the said band, pins on the said cords, tail por
tions on said pins adapted to move away from
stop device I9 which prevents the cord from being ` said cords and'lock the said pins in permanent
20 drawn all the way through the band, the stop de
vice thereby being caught on the inside of the
hat band. The needle is then inserted and drawn
through the loop 25 on the end of the chin strap
lll so that the cord 30 engages the loop 25 in the
25 manner shown. The needle 3| is then pushed
through the band in the opposite direction, name
ly to the inner face of the band. After the needle>
is drawn through in this manner, it is straight
ened out so that it locks itself in the manner
30 shown in Fig. l and as described hereinabove. ~
This construction has the advantage that the
chin strap proper l0 may be removed from the
hat when the elastic therein is completely ‘ex
hausted and another elastic be inserted in its
place without the necessity of entirely removing
the holding devices which Yconnect the elastic
strap to the hat itself. All that would be neces
sary would be to reinsert the pin 3| through the
band of the hat and withdraw it from‘the loop
40 25 on the strap lll and apply a new elastic strap.
In Fig. 4 is shown -another optional embodi
ment of my invention which is similar in parts of
the construction to Fig. 2 in that it has needles 5‘
, and holding cords 'l which are turned back against
themselves and bound by binders ||. lIn this
construction, however, `a small ring of metal or
other rigid material engages the loop caused by
the doubling back of the cord 1 and the stitched
loop 25 onY the end of the' elastic cord I0. The
advantage of this construction lies in the fact
that the adjustment made in the chin strap
proper by means of the movement of the adjust-_
able slide l2 may be effected easily, particu
larly when the hat is on the head of the wearer,
and the chin strap is in its customary position.
The elastic cord IG will tend to slide through the
ring 23 with considerably more ease than it
would slide through the loop in the fabric cord
1, andA furthermore the ring 23 provides an anti
friction connection and thus tends toy prevent
the' elastic cord from wearing at the point of
contact with the fabric cord ‘l and makes the
entire unit have a neat and attractive appear
ance. This construction has the advantage, par
ticularly useful in children’s wear, that the ad
65 justment may be made after the hat has been
applied to the head.
While I have illustrated and described in detail
certain preferred forms of my invention, it is to
be understood that changes may be made therein
70 and the invention embodied in other structures.
relation when they are inserted in the hat.
3. A chin strap for hats comprising a rela
tively wide band of elastic material, connecting
means on each end thereof, pins on the said
connecting means, said connecting means being
of sufficiently small cross section to pass through 25
the holes formed by inserting the
said ‘ pins
through the material of a hat, said pins having
tail portions adapted to move away from the said
cords and lock the said pins in permanent rela
tion when they are inserted in the hat.
4. A device for retaining a hat upon the head
of the wearer comprising a plurality of fabric
cords, pins secured to the end of the said cords, l
loops in the said cords, said loops being engaged
by anti-friction rings of smooth, rigid material, 35
said pins being adapted to be inserted through
the material of a hat at spaced points adjacent
the base of the crown thereof, and a chin strap
engaged by said anti-friction rings, depending
5. A device for retaining a hat upon the `head
of the wearer comprising a plurality of fabric
cords having metallic stop members which en
gage and bind one end of the cord, and pin mem
bers o-n the other end of the cord, said cords be 45
ing applied to the hat at spaced points in posi
tion adjacent the base of the crown thereof, and
a chin band depending from said cords.y
6. A vdevice for retaining a hat upon the head
of the wearer as claimed in claim 5 in which the
chin band is doubled upon itself to form a loop
and a slide is attached to one end of the band
and adjustable along the oppositelength of the
band, thus providing for varying the length of
the chin band.
'7. A device for retaining a hat upon the head of
the wearer as claimed in claim 1 wherein the
band is doubled back upon itself at one end there
of and secured to a slide fastener mounted there
on, thus providing for adjusting the length‘of 60
the chin strap to suit the needs of the wearer.
, 8. A device for retaining a hat upon the head
of the wearer comprising a band of relatively
wide material having loops at each end thereof,
small cords of elastic material inserted freely 65
through said loops, pin means engaging the said
elastic cords, said pin means comprising pointed
portions, intermediate portions attached to said
cords, and tail portions adapted to move away
froml said cords.
