1 Claim.
The invention has reference to waist or like
belts and their fastenings of the kind illustrated,
described and claimed in my prior patent of the
United States No. 2,137,796 dated November 22,
In this kind of waist or like belt there is pro
vided at one end of it a permanent and flexible
longitudinal loop, a buckle attached to said loop
by one of its transverse bars passing therethrough
to slide in said loop longitudinally thereof, and a ’
iieXible tension spring disposed longitudinally
within said loop and having one end in pivotal
engagement with the transverse bar and the
other end secured to the inner end of said loop
by an attachment member.
This kind of belt is extensively used by ath
letes and game players, and while to some extent
is efiicient has been proven to be defective inas
much as the mechanical connection of the dex
ible tension spring to the leather is ineii'icient,
in consequence of deterioration of the leather,
and of the mechanical securing devices becom
ing loosened or impaired by the stresses of the
flexible tension spring which must be strong in
order to be elTective for the necessary resilient `
grip of the belt around the clothing worn, but
furthermore by said mechanical devices being
affected by perspiration and climatic variations,
and by rubbing against the clothing.
It is therefore the object of the invention to
provide a simple, eñicient, and inexpensive con
nection between the inner end of the loop and
the attachment member for the ilexible tension
spring, to thereby overcome the objections here
inbefore stated.
According to the invention a leather waist belt

out; it being understood that the sewing of the
three thicknesses of leather to each other takes
place while said thicknesses are under transverse
pressure. In addition to maximum security of
the attachment member to the inturned end, the
invention also provides against perspiration and
climatic conditions affecting the mechanical de
vices, and prevents same rubbing against the
clothing and giving consequent discomfort to the

belt fitted with a tonged buckle.

Fig. 3 is a plan of the buckle and its resilient

One end of a leather or like belt l is doubled
upon itself at 2 to provide a loop 3, and the end
4 of this loop is inturned to be sandwiched be
tween the two outer thicknesses 5 and 6 of the
loop, thereby providing at this end of the loop
three thicknesses of leather. This inturned end
4 has applied to it a metal attachment member
1, in the form of a flat hook in Figs. 1 to 3, and in
the form of a flat plate in Figs. 4 and 5, 'the hook
engaging a hole through the inturned end 4, and
the plate secured to said inturned leather end 4
by transverse rivets 'la in Fig. 4, and by a trans
verse dat staple 1c in Fig. 5, any one of the me
chanical securing devices being applied to the
inturned end 4 transversely.
A It therefore follows that the attachment mem
ber 'l is mechanically secured to the inturned
4 only, and that the latter, the member 1
by the loop having an inturned end, providing at
and the securing devices are sandwiched between
this end three thicknesses of leather, and by a
metal attachment member secured to said in Ait) the two outer thicknesses 5 and 6 of the loop 3,
and that when the three thicknesses 4, 5 and 6
turned end by transversely applied mechanical
leather are sewn at B closely together while

under pressure the mechanical devices are se

cured against becoming loose, it being clear that
ner, between the two outer thicknesses of leather,
the end 4 is inturned and secured by sew

or the like of the kind described is characterised
of leather so that there are four surfaces of
leather in close physical contact to resist dis
placement «of the mechanical devices by stresses
consequent upon the use of the belt, it being
appreciated that if the attachment member is a "
hook engaging a hole in the inturned end the
hook will be prevented from opening, and that in
the case of the member being secured to the
inturned end by rivets, or a staple, the ends of
the rivets or staple are prevented from opening

The loop 3 provides a channel or housing 9
for the purpose hereinafter described, and the
inturned end 4 materially assists in the formation
of this housing.
A buckle H3, having a tongue l l pivoted on the
buckle -bar I2, is inserted in the loop 3 so that
said bar l2 is slidable therein longitudinally with
the tongue Il slidably engaging a slot I4 in the
outer end of the loop 3. The buckle l0 is resil
iently connected to the >belt by two springs I4
