J. BARBER BODY PROTECTING DEVICE Filed July 7, 1922 chm-m,
Patented Mar. 17, 1925.
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
J'OESEPH BARBER, OF JOHNSTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA.
Application filed July 7,
State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Body-' Protecting Devices, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to shields or body protecting devices, and particularly to a device .of the character intended for use by miners, primarily, to enable them to carry electric lighting batteries without liability of the acid of the battery, if it should leak, coming into contact wit-t the clothes of the.
It is a' well known fact that when carrying lighting batteries now in common use that are employed as a source of current for lighting lamps that are usually placed on the head covering of the miner, the battery fluid is apt to leak, and when it does, it has been known to injure the clothes and body of the wearer, the injury .to the body in some instances being such as to impair the activities of the victim.
It is an object, therefore, of tl1lS ll1V8111'/10n to provide novel means for carrying a battery and for protecting the wearer against access'of the fluids-to the, clothes or person of the wearer, and to include novel means whereby the battery is held against shifting froma position which it occupies with relation to abelt and the protecting apron, which constitute parts of the invention.
It is a further object of this invention to produce a protector of the character indicated which will be of comparatively simple and inexpensive construction, but that will prove eflicient and satisfactory in use.
\Vith the foregoing and other objects in view, the invention consists in the details of construction, and in the arrangement and combination of parts to be hereinafter more fully set forth and claimed.
In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing in which the invention is illustrated by a view in perspective.
In this drawing, 5 denotes a lamp, 6 and 1922. Serial No. 573,327.
I 7 the conductors leading thereto and connected to a battery 8.
' These parts may be'of any conventional form or arrangement, and 'a detailed description thereof is believed unnecessary. The battery carrier and the protector, in the present embodiment of the invention, comprlse a belt 9 which will encircle the body 7 of the wearer and it is, of course, adjustable by fastenings 10 by which the belt is seecured in place. The battery has hooks or loops 11 which engage a strap 12 by which I the battery is suspended. The strap 12 is secured to the belt preferably at one side of the apron 13 by fastenings such as 14:, and the strap is held in place by a fastening 15 such as a buckle carried by a tab or strap 16 which is secured to the belt 9, it being ossible to adjustthe tension of the strap y reason of the fact that the fastening 15 is an adjustable one.
The apron 13 is relatively large as compared with the size of the battery and is interposed between the battery and the belt 9, and itis secured to the belt 9 by appropi'iate fastenings 17 such as rivets or the 1 (e.
The apron is preferably acid resisting or of amaterial that acid will not unduly affect, and as at present constructed, leather has been employed, although rubber would prove an admirable substitute for the leather and perhaps it would be less expensive.
' I claim:
In a support and protector for lighting batteries, a belt adapted to encircle a user having means for adjustably connecting its ends together, an apron relatively larger than a battery to be supported, attached to said belt extending above and below the said belt, a strap secured to the belt at one edge of the apron, a fastening'for the strap so- JOESEPH BARBER.
