Application July 24, 1944, Serial No. 546,265 (Cl. 132—-33) ' 3 Claims. 1 The present invention relates to a device which facilitates making pin curls which heretofore has been largely done by twirling the hair around the ?nger and without twisting the hair as it is being twirled. The present invention comprises two major 2 ures and being held from longitudinal movement by means of screw H which extends freely through the outer end 12 of member Ill and is screw-threaded into the end I3 of member A. I provide a strip. 15 which has spring charac teristics and is attached at its upper end to mem ber II] as at It, the lower end being adapted to yieldingly lie on member A for a purpose which parts, one being rotatably mounted on the other, the inner part protruding at one end and the will hereinafter appear. outer part having an extention plate which lies On the lower end of member I5, I provide on the inner part at its lower end with spaced spaced prongs I‘! which extend outwardly as prongs which are turned upwardly and outward shown in the ?gures. These prongs are pro ly and also having a lever which is pivotally vided for a purpose which will hereinafter ap mounted intermediate its ends to the outer pear. member, one end being adapted to be manually I provide a lever l8 which is pivotally mounted operated, the other or lower end being adapted 15 on member l5 by means of spaced apart ears to lie between the prongs andagainst the plate l9-—l9 as at 20. Member i8 is shaped as shown having a portion which lies over the ends of the in Figs. 1 and 2, having a spring 21 which holds prongs. it normally in the position shown in Fig. l. Mem Other objects of the present invention is to provide a device which is simple, easily under ~20 ber l8 comprises an outwardly extending mem ber 22 and a downwardly extending member 23, stood and easily operated, and can be manu which is adapted to normally lie on the ends of factured at low cost. members I1. I provide a Z shaped member 24, To these and other useful ends, my invention the upper end being secured to member 23 and consists of parts, combinations of parts or their the forward end 25 being shaped about as shown equivalents and mode of operation as hereinafter panying drawing in which: so it normally lies on member l5 when member 23 is in contact with the ends of members H. and a fraction of a tuft of hair in position for hand a tuft of hair is formed and laid on the described and claimed and shown in the accom To operate my device, member 22 is pressed to Fig. 1 is a side view of my curling device. the position shown in Fig. 2 and held in this posi Fig. 2 is a partially sectioned View of the de vice as shown in Fig. 1 with the holding lever lifted 30 tion by the ?ngers of one hand, with the other curling. Fig. 3 is a view of the device as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, with the lever released, its lower end lying on a fraction of a tuft of hair before be ing curled. Fig. 4 illustrates a fraction of my device after the hair has been curled. lower end of member [5 and under prongs I’! as illustrated in Fig. 2 with member A being held on the scalp adjacent the tuft of hair. Then member I8 is released 50 member 25 rests on the tuft of hair (see Fig. 3) , then member B is turned, the tuft of hair being held together by the other hand until it all is wound around member A as illustrated in Fig. 4, at which time it may par 40 tially or all be under member I5 and snugly making cork screw curls. wound on member A. Thus member IE will act As thus illustrated the inner member of my to hold the curl into its formed position as shown device is designated by reference character A. Fig. 5 illustrates a modi?cation adapted for in Fig. 4. The curl may then be pressed against the scalp and the device removed, after which 45 bobby pins may be used to hold the curl into its ' acter B. shape and position. It will be seen that the curls Member A may be of different diameters, in may be made quickly and without twisting the practice two sizes are furnished‘ to the trade, one, hair unless desired, that the operation of making a 1A; inch outside diameter and the other, 3/8 inch the curls is simple and quickly performed, outside diameter, the latter being used largely for In Fig. 5, I illustrate my device wherein mem 50 short hair. ber l0 may move longitudinally on member A, Members A and B are preferably made from screw ll having been removed so that the oper aluminum tubes, member B being rotatably ator can gradually raise member B as it is turned, mounted on member A, its tube member being thus to form a cork screw shaped curl. designated by numeral [0 and having a length relative to member A about as shown in the ?g 55 Thus it will be seenthat I have provided a The outer member and its component parts, in its entirety, is designated by reference char 3 2,405,431 4 device which is easily operated, light, neat, and its support, whereby its lower end will yieldingly can be manufactured at low cost and aldevice lie on the lower end of said strip and between said prongs whereby the lower end of said lever which will permit the operator to inject into her work a personality suitable for the party operated on, even more successfully than twirling with the ?ngers. Having thus illustrated and described my in vention, I claim: 1. A device of the character described, com may be lifted clear of the prongs and a tuft of hair then laid on the strip and adjacent the prongs, and the lower end of the lever then released to thereby yieldingly hold the tuft of hair on the strip while the other member is turned so the tuft of hair will be snugly wound around prising an elongated circular in cross section 10 the circular member and whereby the ‘curl formed member and another member rotatably mounted may be held in position by the ?ngers and the thereon with the elongated circular memberlat vdevice removed. 1 its lower end protruding, a strip rigidly secured 2. A device as recited in claim 1 including; at its upper end to the other member, its lower end means on said circular and other member adapted being adapted to lie contiguous to the‘ circular 15 toprevent longitudinal movement therebetween. member a short distance from the lower end thereof and having at its lower end spaced apart outwardly extending prongs, a lever member 3.
