Referring now to the drawing in detail, where
in for the purpose of illustration I have disclosed
a preferred embodiment of the invention, the
numerals 5 and 6 designate a pair of shoulder
straps having their front ends attached to the
front edges of a pair of trousers ‘I in any suitable
manner, the rear ends of the straps converging
veniently grasping by the hand of a person.
When the clamping members I6 and I8 are at
tached to the upper edges of the trousers, the
latter will be supported in the usual manner,
and when it is desired to drop the trousers, the
rear clamping member I6 is released and the cord
l5 pulled through the connector 9 in a manner
to contract the loop I5.

The clamping members l6 and I8 are shown
in detail in Figures 4 and 5 of the drawing and
include a back jaw 20 on the upper edge of which
the eye I‘! is formed and having an inturned low

A pair of links 26 are pivoted to the inner face
4 0 of the jaw 20 by means of a pin 21, the links

28 to which is also pivotally secured the angular
upper end 29 of a lever 30 which is pivoted on
the upper end of the jaw 24 by a pin 3|. The
