UNITED STATES WILLIAM S. SWIFT, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented July 13, 1920.
Application filed October 27, 1919. Serial No. 333,430.
in set forth and reference is made to the drawing accompanying these specifications.
The purpose of this invention is to provide a skate scabbard which shall be attached to various sizes of skates, instead of the present method of fixed adjustment which may interfere with the uprights of the skates.
Figure 1 in the accompanying drawing shows a skate in a scabbard with a scabbard attachment which constitutes the main feature of this invention.
Fig. 2 is a side view of the loop which serves to fasten the skate to the Scabbard showing the loop closed and showing its attachment to the rods in which the loop slides,
Fig. 3 is a rear view of the loop.
Fig. 4, shows the stud of the clasp button on the metal piece which slides on the flexible rod.
Fig- 5 is a side view of the loop attachment open, taken-on the line 5-5, Fig. a.
Referring now in detail to the construction of the device, (1 represents the skate scabbard, 7) a flexible rod attached to the Scabbard by pins, 0 two leather loops for fastening skate in scabbard. A flexible rod exactly like the one shown in Fig. l is also fixed on the other side of the scabbard. The
back part of the loop is firmly attached to a metal piece (Z which slides freely along the flexible metal rod on the back side of the scabbard, while the front part of the loop contains a clasp f, fitting into a stud c which is firmly attached to a metal piece 1 which slides freely along the flexible metal rod on the front side of the scabbard. For the stud and clasp any other fastening device such as a buckle may be substituted.
Describing the operation of the movable attachment, the two loops are unclasped as in Fig. 5, in order to allow the insertion of the skate in the scabbard. After the skate is placed in the scabbard the two loops are slid along the flexible rods in any position desired, and then closed. The pressure of the skate against the scabbard and the loop keeps the loops firm and when they are closed prevents their slipping.
Having described my invention, I make the following claim:
In a skate scabbard a combinationof two flexible rods each fastened respectively on of each loop is firmly fastened, and which slides freely along the back rod; a stud; a metal piece which slides freely along the front rod, and to which the stud is fastened; a clasp on the front of the strap which fits into the stud, substantially as set forth in the foregoing specification.
In witness whereof I have set my hand this 10 day of December, one thousand nine hundred and nineteen.
