G. L. TULLY Y GoGGLas vFiled Nv. 30. 19225 RUM mw e 4o view of a pair of goggles i Patented Feb.' 24, lags.



To all whom it may concer/n Be it kno-wn that l, Grenen L. Triana',

a citizen ci the United States, residingat Southbridge, in the county of lliorcester i and State ci lvlassachusetts, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Goggles, of which the following is a specifiv cation.

The present invention relates to an imil@ proved form of goggle and has particular reference to a side guard therefor that may` be easily placed upon and removed from' the goggle when it is so desired.

A very important object oi this invenl tion is to provide a gogfrle of this nature entirely satisfactory to the user and will not become accidentally displaced.

Another very important object of the invention is` to provide a goggle of this nature that will be very strong, durable, comparatively simple and inexpensive in construction and one that will be especially well adapted to the uses for which it is designed.

Other objects an'd advantages of the inventicn will become ap arent during the a0 course of the fol-lowing' escri tion.

In the drawings, wherein ike numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,

Figure 1 is a front elevation of a pair of e5 goggles constructed in accordance with my invention,

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the invention,

Figure 3 is a n ragmentariy perspective l ustrating my invention in use,

Figure 4 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on line 4--4 1n Figure 1, and

Figure 5 is a section as taken on line 4 4 of a modified form of the invention.

prises the epe portions 11, bridge 12, temples 13 and race portion 14. The eye portions 11 consist of a preferably met-allie band portion 15 havingthe groove 16 formed therein, adapted to receive the lens 17, as

will readily be understood. The band 15 will be of a substantial width, as is shown in Figures e and 5 of the drawing, so as to permit of the placement of the guard 18, as shown in Figure 1. The guard 18 is formed from a preferably pliable material 19` such as leather for instance, and has the slits 20 to form the member 21 adapted to encircle the temple 13 when in use.

' rlhe portion 19 of the guard 18 is carried by a metallic member 22, which is formed from a strip of preferably metallic material which is bent around the said portion 19, as is clearly shown in Figure f1 and is' crimped thereon to' prevent displacement. The lingers 23 are formed integral with the metallic rib 22 and are adapted to be slipped over the edle of the band 15 of the eye piece 11. e rib 22 is provided with a suitable cut out portion 24, as is clearly shown, to permit of the guard being slipped into position and without interfering with the temple joint 25. Of course, the lingers 23 will be of suilicient length to maintain the guard 18 in position, but will not interfere or contact with the lens 17. ln Figure 5 of the drawings is shown a modification wherein the band 15 of the eye piece is provided with a pluralit of apertures 26 adapted to receive nibs 2` formed on the fingers 23. The nibs 27 when received in the apertures 26, will absolutel prevent any displacementof the guar s 18 when in use,

ut due to the fact that the fingers 23 are formed of a resilient material the ard may be removed when it is desired. 'l e temple 13, passing through the slits 20, allowing the portion 21 to embrace the said temple, will adequately hold the iiexible ortion 18 in position at the same time al owing of the removal of the entire guard when the guards are not needed with the balance of the the desires of the user, said guard being easily placed upon or removed from the goggle without in any way. destroying the goggle or interfering with the lenses.

It is to be understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as the preferred, embodiment of the same, and that various changes in the shape, size and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of m invention or the scope of the sub'oined c aims.

Ilavin thus described my invention, what I c aim is: a

1. In a goggle, a rim for holding a lens, having an mwardly extending flange, a temple pivotally attached to the rim, a foldable shield having means for detachably engaging the temple, and a portion adapted to follow the contour of the rim, a metallic bent piece around the rim portion of the shield, and spring .oli s on the bent piece adapted to detaehab y engage the rim llange, said shield member being adapted to close and open with the travel of the temp 2. In a goggle, a rim for holdin# a lens, having an inwardly extending flange, a foldable Shield having a portion adapted to follow the contour of the rim, and a metallic bent piece around the rim portion of the shield, said piece having a reverse loop for Aixedly holdlng the shield member between the folds thereof, and a second reverse loop adapted to frictionally engage the flange of the rim between the folds thereof, whereby 1t ma be slipped on and off the rim.

3. n a goggle, a rim for holdin a lens, having an inwardl extending ange, a foldable leather shield having a ortion adapted to follow the contour of t e rim, and a metallic bent piece around the rim portion of the shield, said piece havin a reverse loop for iixedly holding the leaier shield between the folds thereof, and a sec ond reverse loop adapted tol frictionally engage the flange of the rim between the folds thereof, whereby it may be slipped on and ofi the rim. .s 4

4. In a goggle, a rim for holding the lens, having an inwardl extending flange, a. temple pivotally attac ied to the rim, a foldable leather shield havin the tem le is passe a portion a apted to follow te contour of the rim, and a bent metallic piece around the rim portion of the shield, said ieee having a reverse loop for fixedly holdin the leather shield member between the 4fo ds thereof, and a second reverse loop adapted to frictionally engage the flange of the rim between the folds thereof whereby it may be sli ped on Aand off the rim, said leather shiel member be ing ada ted to close `and openv with the travelo the temple.
