'I'his invention relates to devices for detachf puffs or other applicators, which are not sub-W5
ably coupling pad and puiï bodies in connection jected to moisture in thefuse thereof.
therewith to form a handle or supporting mem
ber therefor in the use of the pads or other
. „l bodies, and particularly in the supporting of
scouring or cleansing pads composed of woven
wire, steel wool and similar materials; and the
object of the invention is to provide a holder
for body members or pads of the class described
having means in the form of a U»shaped clip
adapted to bethreaded through a part of the
pad in coupling the same with a handle mem
ber; a further object being to provide a clip
or coupling means for devices of the class de
`‘.lll scribed, which yis arc-shaped in form so as to
draw the pad in engagement with the holder
in the operation of coupling the pad therewith;
a still further object being to provide a holder
or handle member having a chamber or recess,
„$0 in the lower surface thereof, through which the
'
U-shaped clip or the side arms thereof is adapt
ed to pass, said arms being disposed within the
boundaries of the recess in said member; a still
further object being to provide means for spread
y2li ing the pointed ends of the arms of said clip
l
to aid in retaining the clip against displacement
from said member; and with these and other
objects in view the invention ,consists in a device
of the class and for the purpose speciñed> which
30 is simple in construction, eilicient in use and
which is constructed as hereinafter described and
claimed.
'
'
The bodyy 5 is in theform of adisk having `a
recess 5 inthe lower surface thereof to form a
peripheral downwardly extending flange l, and` V5
centrally of the upper end of the body 5 is ai'
knob or other finger piece 8- facilitating the
ygrasping of the device, by the hand, in the use
thereof.
’
One side of the body 5A is provided with a pairr` 10
of small downwardly extending apertures 9, in""
which is adapted to be mounted a' coupling clip
Ill, substantially U-shaped in form, that is to
say, the clip is provided with a narrow cross
head I I at its outer end and with curved arms 15
I2 extending from the ends of .the cross head*
and being flared outwardly in the direction of
the free pointed ends I3 thereof, as clearly seen
in Fig. 2 of the drawing.
`
The arms I2 of the clip or coupling member 20
Illare adapted to be moved together in theirfi-ïï
passage through the apertures 9, and saidarms »
extend across the central portion of the U-shaped
recess 6 `and the pointed ends I3 are> adapted
to enter outwardly flared recesses I4 inthe bot- 25
tom wall of the recess 6, as clearly seen in Figsnèf
land 3 of the drawing. By outwardly ilaring
the recesses I4, the pointed ends I3 of the arms
I2 will be flexed outwardly toaid in securing
the clip I Il against displacement from the body 5. 30
When the clip is‘in its innermost‘position their»

Fig. 3 is a bottom plan View of the structure
shown in Fig. 1 with part of the construction

Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing another
use of the device.
In practice, I provide a supporting body or
handle member 5 which is preferably composed
of a worn out pad or other element I6, and in
the operation of coupling another pad therewith.
In Figs. 1, 2 and 3 of the drawing, I 6 repre- 40
sents a pad of steel wool or similar material,
whereasin Fig. 4 of the drawing, I have indi
cated at Ilia a pad or sponge of woven wire.
In this connection, it will be understood that
>any, kind or class of >element I G-Ißa may be 45
attached to the body 5 depending entirely upon
the use to which the device is to be applied,
for example, a powder puff or an ordinary sponge,
rubber pad or rubber spongev and similar ele
ments may be applied. It will also be understood, 50
in this connection, that the size of the body 5
of a non-metallic material, especially when used , may be varied and modiñed to suit the different
in conjunction with scouring pads, sponges and
the like but which may be composed of any de
55 sired material when used in conjunction with
uses.
In coupling the element with the body 5, the
same is simply placed over the recess 6 and pressed 55

into this recess by the hand and the clip l0 is
moved from the position indicated in dotted lines
in Fig. 1 to the full line position, in which opera
tion the curved arms l2 will pass into and through
that part of the body of the element arranged in
the recess, and will have a tendency to draw this
material inwardly into the recess to firmly retain
the element against displacement from the body
5.
pads and similar elements, said member compris
ing a large circular disc having a reduced knob or
Upon consideration of Fig. l of the drawing, it
will be understood that the arms l2 are arranged
within the boundaries of the recess E or, in other
words, inwardly of the lower edge of the flange 'l
so that these arms will not Contact a surface over
which the device is moved should the element be
15 come worn sufficiently to expose said arms.
In using the device in connection with steel
wool, it will be apparent that after a pad orsponge
of this material of a premanufactured form has
become worn to some degree, the same may be
temporarily detached and folded orpiled together
in a smaller body rand then recoupled with the
holder, in this way no `real waste will be experi
enced.
.
By employing a holder or handle member of the
class described with a simple and economical form
of clip or coupling member, a very practical and
useful means is provided for utilizing various
kinds of cleansing sponges or pads as well asap
plicators. It will also be apparent that the clip
extends through a relatively Wide or large area
of the pad or other element, and this will serve
to` support the element I6 in close proximity to
the lower edge of the flange 1, as clearly illus
trated in Fig. 1 of the drawing.
I-lîavingy fully described my invention what I
claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Pat
ent, is:-
`

U-shaped member consisting of a crosshead and
elongated curved side arms, the curvature of said
f side arms being convex with respect to the bottom

being convex With respect to the bottom wall of
said recess, said arms being slidably supported in
an edge of said disc and adapted to move trans
versely of said recess to engage a cleaning pad
arranged in said recess and to retain said pad
against displacement from said disc, said arms
flaring outwardly with respect to said crosshead,
15
and the free ends thereof being pointed.
3. A handle member or mounting for cleaning

ing a large circular disc having a reduced knob or
iinger piece centrally of its upper surface, said

an edge of said disc and adapted to move trans
versely of s_aid recess to engage a cleaning pad
arranged in said recess and to retain said pad
against displacement from said disc, and said
disc having sockets receiving the free ends of saidíiÍSO
arms when the said arms >are in pad retaining
position.
4. A handle member or mounting for cleaning
pads and similar elements, said member compris- Y
ing a large circular disc having a reduced'knobïi-‘Bä
or ñnger piece centrally of its upper surface, said
disc having a large shallow recess in the lower
surface thereof, a clip comprising a U-shaped
member consisting of a crosshead and elongated ì _
curved side arms, the curvature of said side armsi‘äo
being convex with respect to the bottom wall of
said recess, said arms being slidably supported in
an edge of said disc and adapted to move trans
versely of said recess to engage a cleaning pad
arranged in said recess and to retain said padïiëß
against displacement from said disc, said disc hav
ing sockets receiving the free ends of said arms
when the said arms are in pad retaining position,
and said sockets being in diverging relationship to
