Be it known that l, ALEXANDER l3. linen LE1, a citizen of the United States, residing at Railway, in the county' of Union and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Golf-Begs; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, end exact description ofthe invention, such as will enable others skilled 1n the art to which it epperteins to'make and use the same, reference being had to the ac- :ciiipanying drawing, and to figures of ref- "vence marxed thereon, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to a. closure for the open end of a golf-Thug, consisting oi? an extension of substantially tubularform which is provided with means on its end for closing it and also looking it. The extension is preferably secured to the bag in a manner that permits of its being detsched'from the bag, but the fastening means employed may adapted to lock the extension to the bag. 'lhe extension is preferably made with on open end which is rovided with means for closing it and looking it in its closed position. The extension is adsptedto cover and thus protect the sticks carriedin the bag.
The invention is illustrated in the accompunying drawing, in whicl1 Figure 11s a side view of a golf-bag with the extension folded inward so that it is not in view. Fig. is a section 0 the bag with the extension projected from the bag, Fig.-
' 3 is a perspective view of the extension, and
Fig. is a section through one of the fastoning mediums.
In the drawing 1 illustrate a golf-bag 10 of any usual style, having the conventional grip and shoulder-strap. The bag is provided with an extension 11 whichfits the bag 10, being substantially tubular in form and bovin a flap 12 extending from one end. The bag is provided at its top edge e W ith slits 13 which are made with reinforced edges. The extension is provided near itsv bottom edge with staples 14 attached in any suitable manner. attaching the staples is to makethem with back strands 15 passing behind, leather or similar strips 16 so that the staples ere ivoted to the extension. The staples 1%, w len- The preferred way oi passed through the slits'13, are held in place by a suitable binding strand 17, which is usually a strap with a buckle or lock, to prevent its accidental removal. Whenthe extension is fastened to the end of the bag it can-be folded inward, as shown in dotted 7 flap to assist in holding the strap 22 which passes through the staples when they pro jcct through the slits-to look the lispv in its closed position. The strap 22 is carried around the bag when it is not used to close the extension, as will be seen from Fig 1 The strep 22'hasa suitable lock or bolt.
r staple 21 can be fastened to the rearbf the The extension is easily and quickly put in place or removed, and provides a; cheapand positive means for closing the end of a golf-bag. When folded inward the extension is out of the way and does not interfere in any way with the use of the bag.
I claim is g 1. The combination of a; golf-bag, with an extension fitting the end of the bag, means for securing the extension to the to of the bag, the extension being substantia y cylindrical and having open ends, one open end hevin opposite "side, and detachable fastening means encircling the-extension near its top edge and disposed to also embrace the end of the fie when-it is folded over for securing the tension when open being adapted to be folded withinfthe bag and lie against the sides thereof.
2. A closure for a golf-bag comprising a substantially cylindrical extension of flexible material having means at its bottom for securing it to the top of a golf-hag, a. flap extending at one side from the top of the ex tension and having slits near its end, staples Having thus described my invention, what a flap on one (side to fold over the ap in its folded position, the ex- 1 on the edge of the extension oppositeihe flap mm placed so that they extend Ehmugh the slim when the flap is foldei (War, staples on ishe mztension at the base of the flap, and a v strap passing thgough the staples 0 10011 the flap in closedpdsitwn and t0 empress the bag and flap when closed.
In testimony, that I claim the foregoihg, I have hereunto set my hand .bhis 19th day 015 July, 1912.
