ATTORN EYS 2,130,640 Patented Sept. 20, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,130,640 TIE AND‘ COLLAR HOLDER William J. Grubb, New York, N. Y. Application December 6, 1937, Serial No. 178,365 (Cl. 24-85) 4 Claims. This invention relates to necktie and collar holders, and its general object is to provide a ‘combined device of that character for use with folded type collars and four-in-hand ties, that a 5 ' is not only ornamental, but performs a dual func tion of holding the front portions of pointed flaps of the collar evenly spaced in ?xed relation with respect to each other, and the knot of the tie supported accordingly between the same, in a 10 ‘manner to prevent falling of the knot or the latter becoming loose, with the result my holder retains the collar portions and tie‘ knot neatly positioned and against displacement. , .A further object is to provide a combined tie and collar holder that can be applied and re moved in any easy and expeditious manner‘, is simple in construction, inexpensive to manu facture, and extremely e?icient in operation, use and service. This invention also consists in certain other 20 features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be here inafter fully described, illustrated in the accom panying' drawing and speci?cally pointed out 25 in the appended claims. ‘ ‘ ‘In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing where in like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which: 30 Figure l is a front view illustrating one form of my device in use. Figure 2 is a side elevation thereof. Figure 3 is a top plan view of the form as shown in Figures 1 and 2. Figure 4 is a sectional view taken approxi mately on line 4—4 of Figure 3, looking in the direction of the arrows. Figure 5 is a perspective View of the parts of the form as shown in Figures 1 to 4 inclusive, 40 separated from each other. Figure 6 is a plan View of a modi?ed form. Figure '7 is a similar view of another modi?ed form. Figure 8 is a similar view of a further modi ‘ 45 ?ed form. to 5 inclusive includes a body bar I curved from end to end. to the same degree throughout its length. Formed on or otherwise secured to the body bar I midway its ends and extending outwardly at an angle of approximately forty-?ve degrees with respect thereto, is the shank 2 of a pin 3 which is preferably round in cross section and terminates in, a penetrating point as shown. Fixed to the pin 3 is a collar 4, for a purpose 10 which will be presently described. Cooperating with the body bar I is a clamp bar 5 that has formed thereon and extending laterally from ‘midway the ends thereof an ear 6 that is slotted or notched at its outer end as at ‘I, and the ear 15 is adapted to be folded about the body bar mid way its ends as best shown in Figure 4, with the shank 2 of the pin received in the notch 1, so that the shank cooperates with the ear 6 in ?xing the clamp bar 5 to- the body bar. The clamp bar is of waved formation to pro 20 vide what may be termed clamping arms 8 that terminate‘ in outwardly ?ared outer ends 9, and the clamping arms at their juncture with the outwardly ?ared ends are held in contacting 25 engagement with the body bar, as best shown in Figure 3. It is obvious that the clamp bar 5 is formed from resilient metal, and the same may be true with respect to the body bar, but in any event the bars I and 5 cooperate with each other 30 to receive the ?aps of the collar as shown in Figures 1 and 2, with the flaps clamped between the same to hold the ?aps evenly spaced in ?xed relation with respect to each other. When the bars are so arranged the pin 3 is directed at 35 an upward angle with respect thereto, to pene trate the knot C of the tie, with the knot rest ing upon the collar 4 which acts as a stop or abutment means therefor, consequently it will be seen that the knot is held supported at a 40 proper angle with respect to the collar and even ly between the flaps to present a neat appear ance and against any possibility of displace ment. In the forms as shown in Figures 6 to 8 in 45 clusive, it will be noted that the body bars and clamping bars thereof are integral, and referring Referring to the drawing in detail, the letter A indicates a. collar of the usual folded type and it may be stiff or soft, but in any event in particularly to the form of Figure 6, the body bar the form as shown, it includes pointed ?aps. The ' I0 is curved in the same manner as the body bar I tie which is indicated by the letter B is of the as well as has a shank II of a pin I2 formed 50 four-in-hand type, and is knotted as at C‘ in the thereon and extending midway its‘ ends at an usual manner. Each of the forms of my invention as illus trated, is used in the same manner, as shown 55 in Figures 1 and 2, and the form of Figures 1 angle of approximately forty-?ve degrees. The shank I I has secured thereto an abutment or stop collar I3 for the tie knot, and the clamp bar I4 is ?xed to the body bar by web portions I5 that 55 2 2,130,640 bridge the same. The major portion of the clamp bar 54 is straight, but the outer ends are out wardly ?ared as at [6 in spaced relation with re spect to the ends of the body bar, to provide guides to facilitate the application of the holder to the collar, as will be apparent. The form of Figure '7 also includes a body bar 41 that is curved throughout its length and has formed thereon the shank I8 of a pin I9, with an 10 abutment or stop collar 20 formed on the shank What I claim is: 1. A combined folded collar and knotted neck tie holder comprising a body bar, a clamp bar cooperating with the body bar to provide clamping means for the flaps of the collar, a knot receiving pin secured to the body bar and extending at an inclined‘angle therefrom midway its ends, an ear formed on the clamp bar and having a notch therein, and said ear being wrapped about the body bar with the pin received in the ear for co 1O operation with the latter to secure the clamp bar to receive the knot. In this form, the clamp bar 2| is connected with the body ‘bar I1 by a rela to the body bar. tively thick body portion 22 that is formed on the. 2. A combined folded collar and knotted neck bars midway their ends and the clamp bar from tie holder comprising a body bar, a resilient clamp 15 the body portion 22 is inclined toward the body bar secured to and cooperating with the body bar 15 bar to engage the same, but the outer ends of the ‘to provide a clamping means for the ?aps of the clamp bar are outwardly flared, as shown. collar, outwardly ?ared ends for the clamp bar In the form of Figure 8, the body bar 23 is like and spaced with respect to the ends of the body wise curved and has formed thereon a shank 24 bar to provide guide means for the flaps, a pin 20 of a pin 25, the shank likewise having secured including a shank formed on the body bar midway 20 thereto an abutment or stop collar 26. The clamp its ends and a penetrating point for passage into bar 21 of this form is curved or held in curved position for disposal parallel with the body bar 23 and is connected thereto by a body portion 28. The outer ends of the clamp bar 21 are looped 25 upon themselves as at 29, with the looped por tions disposed in contacting engagement with the body bar 23 adjacent the ends thereof. The body portions 22 and 28 may have openings 30 there through, as shown. - ' ' 7 the knot of the tie, an abutment collar ?xed to the shank to provide a rest for the knot, and said pin extending at an inclined angle with respect to the body bar. 25 3. A combined folded collar and‘ knotted neck~ tie ‘holder comprising a curved body bar, a clamp bar cooperating with the body bar to provide clamping means for the ?aps of the collar, web members integrally connected withthe bars for 30 It is obvious that the forms of Figures 6, '7 and 8 are applied to the collar and tie in the same securing the same together, a pin including a and the shanks of each of the forms may be either ‘on the shank intermediate of the length thereof ‘_ for engagement with the tie knot to maintain the latter in adjusted position on said shank and shank formed on the body bar and adapted to manner as the forms of Figures 1 to 5 inclusive, . penetrate the tie knot, and an abutment formed 35 round or square in cross section, while the body and clamp bars are substantially thin and ?at, so as to set up a positive clamping association 14.0 with the collar flaps, as will be apparent. The body bars may be decorated or'have ornamental matter thereon, and. the holders in their entirety may be made from any kind- of metal or other material suitable for the purpose. It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of the in 45 vention will be readily apparent. It is to be understood that changes may be made in the construction and: in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the 50 appended claims.
