Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed March 6, 1917. Serial No. 152,538.
To all 10. mm 2'2 may concern:
Be it known that I, Roy acenrr, a citizen of the United States residing at Erie, in the county of Erie and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Improvements in Lacing Devices, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to lacing devices and consists in certain improvements in the construction thereof as *ill be hereinafter fully described and pointed out in the claims.
he invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings as follows:
Figure 1 shows a front view of a portion of a shoe with the lacing device applied thereto.
Fig. 2 a central section of one of the lacloops. 3 a
section on the line section on the line H in Fig. 2. 5 a section on the line 55 in Fig. 2. 6 a side elevation of one of the loops prior to its attachment to the material.
ll marks the material to be laced, as shown the sides of a shoe. It will be understood, however, that any material may be laced. 2 marks the tongue, 3 the lacing loops and -l the lace which is carried through the loops.
The loops are formed straddle the edges of laced so that the loops lace runs extend beyond the edge. The loop is preferably formed of sheet metal and the part through which the lace 4- runs is preferably turned to at least a semicircle. preferably slightly more than a semi-circle as shown in Fig. 3 so that the edge of the metal does not under any conditions of use come into contact with the lace. The arms of the loop extend back each side of the material and the inner arm 7 of the loop has a cylindrical securing projection 9 formed it and the outer arm 8 has the cylindrical projection 10 formed in it which telescopes the projection 9. When this is in place this is headed over as at 11, as clearly shown in Fig. 2, thus forming a securing means for the loop with relation to theanaterial. This is preferably accomplished with pressure so that the loop is not only secured to the material by the rivet but is also clamped to the material by the rivet.
3-3 in Fig. 2.
with shanks which the material being through which the Copies With this form of lacing device, the lace is carried out or" contact with the material between the edges, as for instance, the tongue 2, so that there is practically no frictional resistance to an equalizing of the laceor to tightening the entire lace portion b pulling one end of the lace. The bottom arms of the loops ride up on the tongue and do not told in the tongue as the edges are pulled together in the manner that is common where the material of the tongue directly contacts the ed e 2.
In order to assure a position of the lace having little or no contact with the tongue or intermediate material between the edges 1 I prefer to deflect the loop outwardly as clearly shown in Fig. 2. lhis is accomplished preferably by deflecting both arms outwardly or at least the outer arm outwardly so that the loop as a whole is out of line with the edge the fabric or material 1.
What I claim as new is 1. in a. lacing device, the combination of material with opposing edges; a plurality of loops on said edges, said loops extending from the edges, the loops being deflected outwardly; and a lace in said loops.
2. In lacing device, the combination of material with opposing edges; a plurality of loops on said edges, said loops extending frcm the edges, both arms of the loops be ing deflected outwardly; and a lace in said loops.
3. A lacing loop adapted to edge of a material, one arm of the loop having a cylindrical projection and the other arm of the loop having a cylindrical projection adapted to telescope the first named cylindrical projection for securing the loop to the aterial.
i. A lacing loop adapted to straddle the edge of a material, one arm of the loop having a cylindrical projection and the other arm of the loop having a cylindrical projection adapted to telescope the first named cylindrical projection for securing the loop to the material, one of said cylindrical projections forming a rivet.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
