Y. _ Application January 27, 1945, Serial No. 574,853 (Cl. 3.6—59) 3 Claims. 1 2 This invention relates to certain new and use thereof there is provided an adhesive coating 6 ful improvements in antiskid canvas devices. The primary object of the invention is to pro extending vide an antiskid canvas device that may be con structed in various shapes or con?gurations for attachment to the tread faces of soles and heels of shoes and for automobile tires. A further object of the invention is to provide ‘ an antiskid device of the foregoing character, preferably formed of relatively heavy material, such as canvas or the like, that inherently em bodies a coarse grained or rough surface with an adhesive applied to one of the faces of the can vas device to facilitate application thereof to the object with which the device is to be associated. Devices of the foregoing character are gen erally subjected to unusually hard wear result ing from frictional activities during the use there of and there is a tendency for the same to work completely thereover. _ At suitably spaced points on the marginal edge of the sole shaped device 5 there is provided a plurality of outwardly extending ears ‘I similarly covered on one face thereof with an adhesive coating 8. It will be understood that the sole shaped device 5 is designed for ?tting or attachment to both right and left shoes with the adhesive face 5 caused to adhere to the tread surface of a shoe sole. The edge extending ears ‘I are then bent up wardly over and around the edge of the shoe sole and also onto the adjacent portions of the shoe upper with the ears 1 adhesively retained in posi 15 tion. With an antiskidcanvas device of the foregoing , character attached to the sole of a shoe, slipping on wet or ice covered pavements or the like is ‘prevented with the elimination of resulting ac loose from the article to which it is attached and 20 cidents. The device is of such character that the to overcome this di?iculty, it is a furtherobject same can be readily removed from the shoe sole of this invention to provide edge extending ears and re-attached thereto whenever desired. on the device that are adhesively coated and In the form of invention illustrated in Figure 3 which are engageable with a part of the object to the device that is also formed of canvas or like which they are attached such as a shoe sole, heel 25 material as previously described ,has the main or tread portion of a vehicle tire. body portion 5a shaped for attachment to the With the above and other objects in view that heel of a shoe with the body portion carrying will become apparent as the nature of the in edge projecting ears ‘la-corresponding faces of vention is better understood, the same consists in the novel form, combination and arrange ment of parts hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawing and claimed. the body portion 5a and ears ‘Ia being adhesively coated to facilitate attachment to the heel of a shoe. The body portion 5a is engaged with the bottom tread surface of the heel while the ear extensions 1“ are moved to engagement with the Figure 1 is a plan view of an antiskid canvas side portions of the heel. device designed for adhesive attachment to the 35 In the form of invention illustrated in Figure 2, sole portion of a shoe and shows the edge extend the device 5b is of general elongated formation ing ears for adhesive attachment to the edges of ' and is especially adapted as an antiskid attach In the accompanying drawing: the shoe sole and adjacent portions of the shoe ment for ‘automobile tires and can well be em upper, ployed for emergency purposes in the presence of Figure 2 is a plan View of another form of the 40 punctures or the like.
