2 Claims.
The present invention relates to new and use
ful improvements in attachments for neckties of
the four-in-hand type and has for its primary
object to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set
5 forth, an article of this character of a novel con
struction which is adapted to take the place of
the usual knot which is formed in the tie.
Another very important object of the invention
is to provide an attachment of the character de
10 scribed, comprising novel means for securing
said attachment in position on the necktie.
Still another very important object of the in
vention is to provide a necktie attachment of the
aforementioned character embodying means for
15 holding the wings of a collar down.
Other objects of the invention are to provide a
necktie attachment of the character set forth
which will be comparatively simple in construc
tion, strong, durable, compact, attractive in ap
20 pearance and which may be manufactured at
low cost.
All of the foregoing and still further objects
and advantages of the invention will become ap—
parent from a study of the following speci?ca
25 tion, taken in connection with the accompany
ing drawings wherein like characters of refer
ence designate corresponding parts throughout
the several views, and wherein:
Figure 1 is a view in side elevation of an em
30 bodiment of the invention.
Figure 2 is a top plan view thereof.
Figure 3 is a perspective view, showing the de
vice partially open.
Figures 4, 5 and 6 are views in front elevation,
35 showing the steps taken in preparing the necktie
to receive the attachment.
Figure '7 is a view in front elevation, showing
the attachment after it has been mounted on the
Figure 8 is a View in front elevation, showing
the invention in its ?nal position, as when being
Referring now to the drawings in detail, it will
be seen that the embodiment of the invention
45 which has been illustrated comprises a substan
tially conical or tapered tube of suitable material
which is designated generally by the reference
numeral I. The tube i may be made in various
sizes and, as shown to advantage in Fig. 1 of the
50 drawings, the upper and lower ends thereof are
oppositely bevelled or inclined.
The tube I includes complemental front and
back members 2 and 3, respectively, of substan
tially semi-circular shape which are hingedly
55 connected at one side, as at 4.
A suitable catch
5 is provided for releasably securing the members
2 and 3 in closed position.
Projecting inwardly and downwardly from the
(Cl. 2-150)
upper end of the member 2 is an integral sup
porting tongue 6. Mounted on the member 3
and projecting therefrom is a pair of collar wing
retaining ?ngers 1.
When the device is to be used, the necktie is 5
placed in the collar 8 in the usual manner and
the wide end 9 of said necktie is crossed over the
small end l0 thereof (see Fig. 4). The wide end
of the tie is then wrapped inwardly, upwardly
and then brought over the small end it (see Fig. 10
5) and then brought downwardly after which
what may be referred to as the connection or
knot which has thus been formed is adjusted, as
seen in Fig. 6 of the drawings. This knot or con
nection is designated by the reference numeral 15
II. The device is then opened and mountedon
the tie, said tie then being compressed or gath~
ered su?iciently to permit the device to be closed.
When this has been done the tongue 6 is engaged.
over the knot II for holding the device in posi- 20
tion. With the device in position the ?ngers ‘l
are engaged on the wings l2 of the collar 8 for
holding said wings down. It will thus be seen
that the necessity of forming the usual tight knot
in the tie is eliminated, thus materially prolong
It is believed that the many advantages of a
necktie attachment constructed in accordance
With the present invention will be readily under
stood and although a preferred embodiment of 30
the device is as illustrated and described, it is
to be understood that changes in the details of
construction may be resorted to which will fall
within the scope of the invention as claimed.
What is claimed is:-—
1. A necktie attachment comprising a substan
ing the life of said tie.
tially tapered tube including hingedly connected
front and back members adapted to encircle a
necktie, a tongue extending angularly from the
upper end portion of the front member and en- 40
gageable with the tie for supporting the tube in
position thereon, and ?ngers projecting from the
back member and engageable with the wings of
a collar for retaining said wings in position.
2. A necktie attachment comprising a substan- 45
tially tapered tube including hingedly connected
complemental front and back members adapted
to encircle a necktie, means for releasably secur
ing said members in closed position, a tongue in
tegral with the upper end of the front member
and extending inwardly and downwardly there
from and engageable on the necktie for support
ing the tube in position thereon, and ?ngers pro
J'ecting from the back member and engageable
with the wings of a collar for retaining said wings
in position.
