Application July 12, 1937, Serial No. 153,269 3 Claims. (01. 2-153) in Figures bracket 9 the provision of an ef?cient and inexpensive de-_ gage with 'vice of this character which may be economir while the This invention relates to a tie support and attaching device and. has for the primary object cally constructed by a single stamping operation and which will support a tie in a correct position with respect to a collar, eliminating the use of tie clasps, stickpins and similar devices frequent ly employed to retain a tie in proper position. Another object of the invention is the provision 10 of a device of the above stated character which may have a tied tie readily adapted thereto and which may be easily removed when desiring to substitute another tie and may be worn with at tached or detached collars. With these and other objects in view, this in vention consists in certain novel features of con struction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described and 2 O claimed. For a complete understanding of my inven tion, reference is to be had to the following de scription and accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a front elevation showing my in 25 vention supporting a tied tie in proper relation to a collar of a. shirt. ' Figure 2 is a front elevation showing a tie sup port and attaching device constructed in ac cordance with the present invention. 30 Figure 3 is a, rear elevation showing a tied tie mounted on the device. Figure 4 is a perspective view showing the de vice with a tie removed and the tie attaching bar thereof released for pivotal movement into r a position as shown in Figure 2 to permit the application of a tied tie thereon. 7 Referring in detail to the drawing, the nu meral I indicates a frame including side mem bers 2, connected by an end member 3. The 40 side members diverge from the connecting mem ber 3 and have integral with their free ends col lar engaging elements 4. The elements 4 are slightly curved from end to end so as to con form to the walls of’ a collar 5. The collar may 45 be attached or detached from a shirt. A bar 6 has one end pivoted on one end of one of the side members 2 and may be swung to close the frame and when in the latter-named position engages a stop 1. One of the‘ collar 50 engaging elements 4 has pivoted thereon a clip 8 to be positioned over the free end of the bar 6 to hold the same in frame closing position and against the stop 1. ‘ The connecting member 3 of the frame has 55 formed thereon a bracket 9 shaped, as shown 2 and '3, or as shown in Figure 4. The shown'in Figure 2 is designed to en a, collar button of the removable type bracket shown in Figure 4 is shaped to fit over an attached button of a. shirt. The 5 parts of the frame and collar engaging elements and the bracket 9 can all be stamped in a single operation, thereby materially reducing the cost of manufacture. ‘ A necktie 9’ is tied in four-in-hand fashion 10 having the knot l0 and in forming the knot a loop is provided at the upper end of the knot through which the bar 6 may pass thereby mounting the knot in the frame I in the front of the latter with the ends of the tie depending 5 downwardly. The bar 6 is brought in engage ment with the stop ‘I and held in this position by the clasp or clip 8 engaging over the free end of the bar. Thus the tied tie is securely mount 20 ed on the device, the frame acting as a rest for the knot. The frame or the bracket 9 thereof is then positioned on the collar button with the collar engaging elements 4 contacting the inner walls of the collar. Thus it will be seen that this device when Worn is completely concealed 25 from view and will efficiently support the tie in proper relation to the ?aps of the collar so as ‘to have the appearance of a tie which has been tied on the wearer. Further, the tie or the knot thereof being supported by the frame I will pre vent the tie from moving out of position on the wearer, eliminating the use of tie clasps, stick pins or similar devices for holding the tie in proper position. Whenever it is desired to change a tie on the device, the bar 6 is swung on its pivot so that the tie can be slid therefrom and another tied tie slid onto the bar. By the use of this inven tion less wear is made on ties due to the fact that the practice of tying and. untying of the 40 ties is eliminated. Also, it will permit ties to be constructed of shorter length, consequently saving material and reducing the cost of man ufacture of such ties. 45 What is claimed is: 1. A tie support and attaching device com-_ prising a frame open at one end thereof and closed at the opposite end and including a but ton engaging portion formed on the closed end and extending towards the open end of said b' o frame, oppositely extending collar ‘engaging ele ments carried by the open end of the frame and curved from end to end, and means for remov ably mounting a tied tie on said frame and act ing normally to close the open end of said frame. 55 2,128,846 ‘ shaped to lie in a plane of the frame and pro 2. A tie support and attaching device com prising a frame open at one end thereof and in vided with an opening to receive a collar fas cluding a button engaging portion, oppositely ex tending collar engaging elements carried by the tener, curved collar engaging elements integral with the open .end of the frame and extending open end of the frame and curved from end to end, a bar pivoted at one end on the frame ad in opposite directions, a bar pivoted at one end 5 on the open end of the frame, a stop carried by jacent the open end thereof to be passed through 7 one of the collar engaging elements and located a knot of a tied tie for mounting the knot on the frame, and means releasably securing the free end of the bar on the frame. 3. A tie support and attaching ‘device com prising a frame open at one end,‘a bracket formed on said frame at the closed end thereof and adjacent the open end of the frame to be en gaged by the free end of the bar, and a fastener carried by said last-named collar engaging ele 10 ment to‘ engage over the free end of the bar to retain the bar in engagement with the stop.
