JAMES P. HOOPER, OF BALTIMORE, MARYLAND.
POCKET FOR CARTRIDGE-BELTS.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 1,1916.
Application filed March 30, 1915; Serial No. 18,022.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that 1, JAMES P. HooPER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Baltimore, in the State of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Pockets for Cartridge-Belts, of which the following is a specification,
This invention relates to improvements in pockets for cartridge belts, and has for its object to provide an improved construction of pocket, with a plurality of compartments therein, combined and attached to a belt in an improved manner.
The invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combination and arrangement of parts as herein set forth and pointed out in the appended claims The accompanying drawing illustrates the invention wherein- Figural, shows a front elevation of a series of pockets, constructed in accordance with my invention and as they appear when attached to the belt. Fig. 2, illustrates the same in top edge or plan view. Fig. 3, shows the same in horizontal sectional plan, the section being taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4, illustrates the same as viewed from the rear or inner side of the belt to which the pockets are shown attached; Fig. 5, shows an enlarged vertical sectional detail through one of the pockets and the belt,- the section being taken on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4, and looking in the direction of the darts in said Fig. 4:, and Fig. 6,'illustrates a rear elevation of a group of pockets with the belt turned away to show the construction of the pockets and some of the steps employed in their formation.
Referring to the drawing by numerals, 7, designates the belt web, which may be of any desired construction for attachment to the body or waist of a person and to which I attach my improved pockets. The pockets may be arranged along the belt in a continuous series, or in groups, as preferred, the construction however, being the .same in either event. The series or groups of pockets employ a plurality of longitudinal web strips, the number of such strips depending upon the number of compartments it is desired the pockets shall have and the number will be varied accordingly. In the present instance these longitudinal web strips are designated 8, 9 and 10, respectively and are clearly shown in Figs. 3 and 5 of the drawings. These longitudinal web strips are secured together at spaced-apart intervals by means of rows of stitches 11, that extend from the upper tothe lower edge and these rows of stitches are preferably taken on a line at an incline with respect to said edges, as clearly shown in Fig. 6, whereby the vertical compartment formed between two inclined rows of such stitches will be tapering in that it will be wider, at the upper end than at the lower end thereof. During the taking of these rows of stitches 11, the inner 1 and outer strips 8 and 10, will be laid against the intermediate partition strips, in this instance strip 9, with a longitudinal fullness and the partition strip will therefore be of less length than the said inner and outer strips, as clearly shown in Fig. 3.
To form a bottom closure 1 provide each pocket with a web strip 12, the upper end 13, of which turns down against the inner side of the outer longitudinal strip 10, as clearly shownjin Fig. 5, and the main portion of which lies close against the outer vertical surface of said strip 10. This strip 12, turns rearwardly and passes under the lower edges of the strips 10, 9 and 8, and its lower end 14, extends upwardly at the rear side of longitudinal web strip 8, and between the latter and the front web 7. This web strip 12, has a greater or outerside of the belt width'than the widthlof the compartments formed between the inclined rowsof stitches 11, and the said strip 12, has a uniform width from end to end. The opposite parallel edges 15, of these strips 12, are se- Y.
cured by vertical rows ofstitches 16, which latter, as clearly shown in Fig. 3, pass through the edge of strip 12, then through web strip 10, then through the edge of downturned end 13, of said strip 12, then through partition strip 9 and finally through the inner web strip 8. The upturned ends 14:, of strips 12, are each secured to belt web 7 by a row of horizontal stitches 17.
To provide a covering for the pockets each of the latter is provided with a covering flap 18, which extends down into the pocket in front of the inner web strip 8, and is secured therein by means of a horizontal row ofstitches 19, that extend through said flap, said inner web strip 8, and the upper edge of the belt web. At the ends of the series or groups of pockets the longitudinal web strips 8, 9 and 10, are secured to the belt web by means of a vertical row of stitching 20. Suitable stud members 21, are secured to the front of each pocket and a coacting socket member is attached to each covering flap whereby to secure the flaps down over the pockets.
Having described claim is,-
l. The combination with a belt, of a plurality of longitudinal web strips at one side of the belt the inner of said web strips being secured to the belt at spaced apart intervals and the longitudinal web strips being secured together at spaced apart intervals whereby to form a series of pockets, and means for closing the bottom side of the pockets.
2. The combination with a belt or" a plurality of longitudinal web strips at one side of the belt; means at spaced apart intervals for securing the longitudinal web strips together and leaving the intervening portions of said strips unsecured with respect to each other, means for securing the inner of said longitudinal strips to the belt to form a series of pockets, and means for closing the bottom side of the pockets.
3. The combination with a belt, of a plurality of longitudinal web strips at one side of the belt,the inner and outer of the longitudinal web strips having a fullness at spaced apart intervalswith respect to the interposed strips whereby to form pockets; means for securing the longitudinal strips together between adjacent fullnesses, means for securing the inner strip to the belt at each fullness and means for closingthe bottom s de of the pockets.
4. The combination with a belt, of a plurality of longitudinal web strips at one side of the belt,the inner and outer web strips having a tapering fullness in a vertical direction and at spaced apart intervals with respect to the interposed strips; means for securing the longitudinal strips together at the; side of each vertical tapered fullness whereby tov form a series of pockets means my invention, what I for securing the inner longitudinal strip to the belt and means for closing the bottom side of the pockets.
5. The combination with a belt of a plurality of longitudinal web strips at one side of the belt; means for securing the inner strip to the belt at spaced apart intervals; means for securing the strips together independently of the belt, and a strip having one end secured at the inner side of the outer longitudinal strip and extending down and under all of said longitudinal strips.
6. The combination with a belt of a plu rality of longitudinal web strips at one side of the belt; means for securing the inner strip to the belt at spaced apart intervals; means for securing the strips together independently of the belt; a strip having one end secured at the inner side of the outer longitudinal strip and extending over the upper edge of the latter and down in front thereof,said strip extending beneath the lower edges of all the longitudinal strips and turning up at the rear side of the inner longitudinal strip, and means for securing the upturned end of said strip to said belt.
7. The combination with a belt, of a plurality of longitudinal web strips at one side of the belt; means for securing the longitudinal strips together at spaced apart intervals; a strip having one end secured at the inner side of the outer longitudinal strip and extending over the upper edge of the latter and then down at the outer side and under the latter said strip having its end up-turned and secured to the belt; means for securing the inner longitudinal web strip to the'belt and a flap.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
