Application filed May 13,

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JAMES P. KELLY, a citizen of Ireland, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Wristlet, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in apparel, and it pertains more particularly to a protector adapted for use in washing painted surfaces. windows and the like.

It is the primary objectof the invention to provide means adapted to be worn upon the arm of the operator to catch the drip from the sponge, cloth or other suitable washing implement.

It is a further object of the invention to so construct a device of this character that the same may be readily attached to or de tached from the operator.

It is a further object of the invention to construct a device of this character in such a manner that one of the ends is flared and adapted to occupy a position when in use whereby the drip from the washing implement will be readily collected.

With the above and other objects in view, reference is had to the accompanying drawings in which Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the manner of use of the device, and

Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view of the device.

.Referring more particularly to the drawings, the device comprises a cylindrical portion 5 of relatively thin rubber or any other suitable material and said cylindrical portion is provided on its lower end with a reinforcing bead carried by the cylindrical portion, and preferably formed integral Specification of Letters Yatent.

1921. Serial No. 469,225.

therewith is a flared port-ion 7 and at the junction of the cylindrical portion 5 with the fiared portion 7, the body is reinforced as at 8. The upper end of the flared portion is provided with a reinforcing bead 9. This upper flared port-ion 7 is formed from thicker material than is the cylindrical portion 5 in order that greater rigidity thereof may be had to assure of the flared portion occupying the proper position spaced from the hand of the operator when in use.

The device is adapted to be used in the following manner: the arm of the operator is engaged by the cylindrical portion 5 in such a manner that the wrist will occupy a position within the flared portion *4". During the washing operation the washing fluid 1n dripping from the sponge or other wash ing implement, will be caught by the flared portion of the device and owing to the contact of the thickened portion or bead 8 with the arm of the operator will be prevented from running down the arm of the operator and soiling his clothes. When the operator again dips the sponge into the cleaning fluid, the contents of the flared portion will be automatically dumped into the receptacle containing the cleaning fluid.

I claim: 1

As a new article of manufacture, a wristlet for Window washers and the like, comprising a cylindrical portion of uniform diameter adapted to receive the wrist of the wearer, said cylindrical portion of uniform diameter being bounded on each of its ends with a reinforcing rib and a flared portion extending forwardlyfrom the forward end of the cylindrical portion, and adapted to receive the lower hand portion of the operator, said flared portion being bounded on its free end by means of a reinforcing rib.
