1 Claim. (Cl. Sti-_58)
This invention relates to a safety razor construction.
It is the principal object of the present invention to
provide a safety razor construction in which the cover
plate for a double edge blade is a single one and swung
upon one side of the razor which makes for a single
closing action for a double safety razor.
It is another object of the invention to provide a safety
razor construction comprising a single plate for covering
a double edge blade which is adjustable by the central
longitudinal extending guide bar over which the blade
is placed without interfering with the operation of the
guide bar the cover plate being pivotally connected to
arms extending laterally from the opposite ends of the
guide bar, and means on the pivotal cover plate engage
able with the flxed plate to cam the same to the open
position and to limit the outward pivotal movement of
the cover plate.
Other objects of the invention are to provide a razor
24. The cover plate 22 has inwardly extending and
laterally spaced support elements 25 and 26 by the ends
of which the cover plate is pivotally' connected to the
arms 20 and 21 carried by the adjustable blade guide
portions 15.
The blade supporting body 17 has the usual depending
transversely extending portions 27 and 2S over which
the edges of the cover plate support elements 25 and
26 are extended, fulcrumed and limited in their move
ment to cause the cover plate to be lifted and lowered
with the movement of the laterally extending blade guide
portion. These support elements 25 and 26 have lugs
29 which engage with the underside of depending blade
guide portion as at 27’ to stabilize the inward movement
of the cover plate 22 when it has «become aligned with
the portion 15 and its elongated slot 31 receiving the
portion l5. Depending from the sides of the body 17
at each end thereof are depending lugs 32 and 33 be
tween which the extensions 18 and 19 pass. Each lug
32, 33, is spaced from the respective arm 25, 26 to form
a slot through which the adjacent extension 1S or 19
passes, the slots not being provided with a reference
numeral for the reason that they do not show in any
of the views. The depending lug _33 is longer than the
construction having the above objects in mind, which 25 depending lug 32 and extensions of the arms 2t) and 21
is of simple construction, has a minimum number of parts,
