This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in a ?nger nail protector for switch
board operators.
'
The invention has for an object the construc
tion
of a protector which is characterized by the
5
fact that it protects one’s ?nger nails in a man
ner so that the opposite portion of the ?nger is
In Fig. 1 a ?nger I2 is schematically illustrated.
This ?nger is provided with a ?nger nail l3 and
it should be noted that the elastic sheath com
pletely extends over and protects the nail. The
tip portion I!’ of the ?nger is exposed through
the opening I I to permit the ?nger to touch ob
exposed to permit feeling of objects.
More speci?cally, the invention contemplates

for engaging over the top of one’s ?nger to about
jects to feel same.
The elastic shield is formed with a plurality
of vent openings I! along its back side so that 10
the air within does not become stagnant after
some use.
The rear end of the elastic sheath is

The ?nger nail protector for switchboard op
50 erators, according to this invention, comprises an
elastic sheath ID for engaging over the tip of a
?nger to about the ?rst knuckle to completely
encase the ?nger nail, and said sheath being
formed with an opening on the side opposite to
55
the ?nger nail so as toexpose the ?nger tip to
angles to the bottom opening. H and slightly off
center.
‘
Normally, the slit Hi is disposed at right angles
to the ?nger nail l3 of the ?nger l2 which is ‘’
illustrated in Fig. 5. When so worn the ?nger
nail is fully protected. To extend the ?nger nail
it is merely necessary that the sheath l0 be
turned on one’s ?nger to a position as shown in
Fig. 6, then the nail l3 will extend out from the
opening l5.
While I have illustrated and described the pre
ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be
understood that I do not limit myself to the
precise constructions herein disclosed and the 40
right is reserved to all changes and modi?cations
coming within the scope of the invention as de
?ned in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim as new, and desire to secure by United
States Letters Patent, is:-
1. A ?nger nail protector particularly intended
for switchboard operators, comprising an elastic
sheath for engaging over the top end of one’s
?ngers to about the ?rst knuckle so as to com
pletely encase one’s ?nger nail, and said sheath
being formed with an opening on the side op
posed to said ?nger nail so as to expose the ?nger
tip to permit feeling of objects through said
opening, and said sheath being formed with a slit 55

in its outer end transversely of said opening and
normally transversely of one’s ?nger nail, where
by the sheath may be turned on one’s ?nger to
a position in which the ? ger nail will extend
through said slit.
'
2. A ?nger nail protector, comprising an elas
tic sheath for engaging over the end of one's
?nger so as to completely encase it to protect the
?nger nail against being accidentally broken, said
sheath being formed with a side opening opposed
to the side covering said ?nger nail so as to ex
pose the ?nger tip to permit feeling of objects
coming in contact with said ?nger tip, and said
sheath being formed with an elongated slit ar
ranged at right angles to said opening so that
said sheath may be twisted on said ?nger to 6
align said ?nger nail with said slit and then urge
said sheath further on to said ?nger to cause
said ?nger nail to protrude through said slit so
that it may be used for picking up coins, sheets
of paper, or like articles.
