and ‘25, respectively. The coupling end portion of the
male scoops have what might be termed hook-shaped
coupling members 26 land `2’7, respectively; whereas, the
female scoops include sockets 28 and 29, respectively,
for reception of the members 27, 26 in coupling the pairs
of scoops of the twoV stringers. Inner surfaces of the
This invention relates to separable fastener stringers,
Wherin the scoops are fixed to one surface only of the
Stringer tapes, producing what I term 1a one-sided fastener,
wherein scoops of coupled stringers become invisible
when viewing the fastener from the other surface of the
members 26 and 27 are rounded, yas seen at 30 and 31,
to receive rounded or bulbous heads 32,133 on the female
coupled stringers.
More particularly, the invention deals with separable
fasteners of the character described, where-in the scoops
of the stringers are provided one with a hook member
and the other with a socket conforming .to atleast part
parts 23, 25, respectively. The male pants 22 land 24
include wear shelves 34 and `35, over which the heads
32, 33 respectively pass, these shelves extending tothe
edges lo, 17 of the tapes fand `overlying the shelf portions
18 and 19, respectively. Corresponding wear shelvesare

Still more particularly, the invention deals with la

are formed in pairs on each Stringer and, still further,
wherein markings are provided on the scoops of one
