Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Aug, 1,1916.

Application filed April 12, 1916. Serial No. 90,615.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, AUGUSTUS J. SCI-IWAR- zen, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Western Port, in the county of Allegany and State of Marylandfhave invented certain new and usefuL Improvements in Suspensories, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to suspensory bandages, and the main object thereof is to provide such a device which is very quickly and easily placed into or taken from operative position, which enables the removal of the scrotum, container into inoperative position Without necessitating the removal of the belt portions, which is composed of two distinct members rendering the manufacture thereof very easy and economical, and which is highly efficient in use.

My invention is fully described in the following specification, of which the accompanying drawings form a part, in which like characters refer to like parts in each of the views, and in which Figured is a perspective View of my suspensory in position for use; Fi .2 is a similar view with the parts in a iartially detached condition; Fig. 3 is a view of the scrotum container, detached, and partly broken away to show structural details; Fig. 4 is a side view of said container in operative connection with the belt member, the latter being shown fragmentarily; and Fig. 5 is a view of the belt member alone.

My invention comprises but two members, a belt member 6 and a scrotum bag 7, the former being composed of two portions 6 and 6" of equal lengths joined by means of rings 8 and 9 in an adjustable manner by means of buckleslO. i

The bag 7 is provided with upper and outwardly directed loops 7 and held in looped form by means of fasteners 11 of the snap type in the form illustrated, and said bag is also provided with a lower and rearwardly directed loop 7 held in looped form by means of fasteners 12, also of snap type.

As shown in Fig. 1, when the device is in use the belt portions are arranged with their ringed. ends at the front of a wearer and upon opposite sides of the penis, the portion 6 being arranged about the trunk of the wearer whereas the portion 6 is arranged about the limbs with the loop 7 in detachable engagement with said portion 6 centrally of the length thereof, and the loops 7 and 7 are in detachable engagement with y the rings 8 and 9, respectively, a suitable orifice 13 being provided for the penis. With the parts in this position, the upper portion of the bag 7 tensionally maintains the portions 6 and 6 in place, although the loop 7 assists in this result for the latter portion 6 and a comfortable suspensory is thus provided.

It frequently occurs that a wearer does not desire to reveal the suspensory with his trousers and drawers opened or removed, and in which event he merely disconnects the loop 7 from the portion 6 and tucks the latter beneath his shirt at the rear of his body and tucks the bag 7 upwardly beneath his shirt at the front of his body, the

of a wearer and as quickly disconnectedtherefrom, and he may, under certain conditions, prevent the knowledge of the use of a suspensory to another person in themanner above stated.

Because of the ease of disconnecting the loops from the portion 6, the suspensory may be readily cleansed, and a duplicate bag 7 may be provided for each belt 6 for use while the other bag is being cleansed.

WhileI have shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, I may make changes thereover providing that such changes do not depart from the spirit of the invention, nor from the scope of the following claims.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. A suspensory, comprising a bag memher and a belt member, said belt member consisting of two similar straps and rings joining the ends thereof, and detachable end, detachable fasteners for said loops, a belt member formed of two similar straps joined by rings at their respective ends, and 10 means for adjusting the lengths of said straps.
