mover,of which the-following is a full, clear, and exactdescription.

This invention relates and has particular reference to hair brushes orthe like. v 1 Among the objects of the: invention is-to provide a'hair brush comprisinga rigidback with integral handle and a flexible removable pad carrying the bristles, the pad being removable for the purpose of cleansing, sterilization, or other purposes, our SPGCIfiQ invention involving a peculiar means for ejecting the pad from the brush back.

l/Vith the foregoing and other objects in view the invention consists in the arrangement and combination'of parts hereinafter described and claimed, and while the invention is not restricted to the exact details of construction disclosed or suggested herein,.

still for the purpose ofillustrating a practical embodiment thereof reference i shad to the accompanying drawings, in whlch l ke reference characters designate the'same parts in the several views, and in which i Figure 1 is a of our brush complete.

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the'back and handle, a portionof the flange being broken I away.

Fig. 3 is a vertical transverse section on the line33 of Fig. 1. g r a g Referring now more specifically. to the drawings we show a brush comprising a back 10 with rigid handle 11 formed as an'integral structure and having on the underside of the back an undercut flange 12 beneath which is removably fitted a flexible pad 13 carrying-bristles 14:, V Theiparts thus far describedare ormay be of axwell known; or conventlonal construction and we do not claim the same per 86 as our invention. Pads of this character are usually made of rubber which adapts them to'be'snapped in and out of the cavity within the back beneath the flange 12 so that in order to cleanse or to toilet articles vertical longitudinal section '7 Application filed r nge 2, i920;fea t-a tam.

thrown or ejected from its seat, and without any possible danger of damage'to thepad.

As shown herein the ejector comprises a I rotary member 16'journaled at 1 7 in the end of-the backremote from the han'dle. v Said member 16 is in the nature of ajstraight bar or shaft andxis providedon the outside of the back 'with a loop or ring shaped finger piece 18 whereby the member 16 may be l I rotated'around the axis-ofthe bearing '17." 7

On its inner end'within the cavitybetween the pad and the back the member-16 is pro-,

vided with anfarm- 15) projectingat an angle to the axis of them'ember 16 so that its free end lies normally close or adjacent to the meetingline between'the edgeof the-pad and the back beneath the flange 12 atone side.
