Va claims. (c1. 13a-'11)
The primary object of my invention is to pro
vide a comb having two relatively disposed par
allel rows of teeth in staggered relation to each
other, and equally adapted to both right and left
handed persons.
A further object is'to provide a comb which in
its combing effect offers every advantage of a fine
toothed comb, yet more readily providing a free
and easier passage of the teeth through the khair
and without the customary tooth breakage more v
>or less common with ñne toothed combs.
teeth of the second row, and whereby unison of
the combing action is obtained in a more highly
flexing manner as the teeth weave through the
hair, and this, regardless of the number of comb
strokes employed.
A still further object is the provision of a comb
opposing- sides of
The back I4 is also provided with a plurality
of teeth I5 of the same degree of coarseness as
the teeth I3. The back I4 is not provided with'
a handle integral therewith but is connected by '
a rivet I6 to lthe back I2 in a manner herein
after described which permits teeth I3 and teeth
I5 to be used as one comb by grasping the handle

A further object isl to provide a comb with'its
teeth disposed so that the strands of hair sep

'of the-'handle II liesk along theside of the back
The rivet I6 also acts as a pivot permitting the
teeth I5 'carried by the back I4' to be turned `away
from the teeth' I3 carried by the back I2 for-the
purpose of cleaning said teeth. See Fig. 2.
A channel shaped clip I'I is secured by a rivet
I8 to the handle II adjacent the junction of the
handle II and the back I2. - One end of the clip

imbedded in a depression I9 provided inthe
back I2 andthe other side of the clipl Il spaced
from the back I2 to permit th'e entrance of one
end of the back I4 when said back is pivoted

It is provided with the conventional comb h'andle

'I'he longitudinal axis of the back I 2 is offset so
ing th‘e comb I0 in the closed position of Fig. 1
due to the resiliency of the comb material and
the tension provided by the snap locking means
' aforesaid.
It will be noted in Fig. 1 and more especially in
Fig. 5 that when the comb IIJ is inthe closed or
combing position the teeth I3 are in staggered re
' lationship to the teeth I5 so that a brushing ac
tion as well as a combing action is practicable.
Note separation of hairs indicated at H as comb
I0 is moved to the left as seen in Fig. 5. There
is thus provided a coarse toothed comb function
ing as a ñne toothed comb, and oiîering every
that the longitudinal axis of the handle II lies
along the side of th‘e backV I2 thereby providing
space for another comb-back I4 having its longi 55
advantage of the latter without its common draw
backs, the breaking of teeth, for example, cou
pled with the difliculty in pulling the comb
through snarled and otherwise heavy hair. The
staggered tooth arrangement in the specific man
ner of the placement of the teeth as shown,'
moreover serves to unsnarl the hair due to the
flexing and weaving action of the brushing effect
experienced as the comb passes through the hair,
however light or heavy that may be._
Readily produced from materials obtainable in
the open market, and at no great cost, the inven
tion offers a simple embodiment of a dual row of
teeth pivotally engaged to one another; light in
weight, and requiring no special consideration in
its use from that employed in using a combof
the common single toothed row variety. More
over, the double row of coarse teeth in prefer
ence to ñne teeth completely eliminates the cus
tomary breakage of teeth inherent in a iine
toothed comb during the cleaning process.
To clean the comb, the pivoted back section is
swung clear of the main or stationary section,
whereupon either or both comb sections may be
readily cleaned as is the ordinary single section
pivotally aiñxed back section having a depres
sion formed therein, and said lfirst named back
section having a projection outstanding there
from and integrally therewith arranged to slid
ably move over and in contact with the other
back section and then enter said depression, and
providing a snap locking means for securing said
pivotally afñxed back section against involuntary
dislodgement from said securing means.
‘2. In a comb, a longitudinal stationary toothed
back section having a handle and an outstand
ing projection thereon, and a second longitudi
nal toothed back section having a depression
therein and pivotally attached to said stationary
toothed back section, said outstanding projection
and said depression forming a locking means be
tween said back sections when said pivotally at
tached back section is brought in alignment with
said stationary back section, said projection and
said depression being located between the pivotal
connection of said sections and the handle.
3. In a comb, a main comb member having a
back, teeth .on said back and a handle extending
from said back, a second comb member having a
back and teeth on said back, means -pivotally
