4 Claims. (01. 132-1)
This invention relates to a device for spreading
hair pins and has for its primary object the pro
vision of an implement which may be utilized in
effecting initial separation of the side members
of a hair pin of the‘ normally closed type, com
monly known as a “bobbie” pin, preparatory to
its application to the hair.

A particular object of the invention is to pro

IZ. This arrangement, however, is arbitrary
since the annulus and ring may be disposed in
any desired position relative to each other and
which will be readily understood and is not neces_
sary to be here shown.
