F. SELIG PROTECTIVE TIP Oct.-13, 1925 Filed Jan. 19, 1925 Patented Got. 13,- 1925.
ERANK SELIG, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO.
Application filed January 19,- 1925. Serial No. 3,409.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANK SELIG, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cleveland,
in the county of Cuyahog-a and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvementsin Protective Tips, of which the followin is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in protective tips or sheaths, the present embodiment of the invention being particularly designed and adapted for use as a resilient protective covering or sheath for the ends of article handles, shafts, rods, and the like, of widely varying forms andtypes.
The primary object of the invention is to provide a generally improved protective tip or sheath of the character indicated, which will be exceedingly simple in construction, cheap of manufacture and eflicient in use.
A further and very important object is the provision of a resilient protective 'cap or rwithout .the use of tools and when applied will be very securely retained in position and when applied acting as a cushipningand pro tecting medium.
A further and important object is thepro- I vision of a protecting tip or cap which may be readily conformed to and applied upon the tip or end portions of articles of widely construction, arrangement and combination of parts, hereinafter described, illustrated in some of its embodiments in the accompanying drawings, and particularly pointed. out in the appended claims.
Referring to the drawings, forming a part of this specification, Figure 1 is a side elevation of a protecting tip, constructed in ac-- cordance with this invention, and applied to the tip of an article handle. y
- Fig. 2, a central longitudinal sectional friew of the same, detached, the article handle being indicated in dotted lines for indicating the relative arrangement-and co-action of the handle centralizing and gripping eleniengs when the protective tip or cap is app 1e Fig. 3, a side elevation of another form applied to an article handle or stick of the a viewof the same, detached.
Fig. 5, a side elevation of another form applied to and particularly designed for, use in connection with a household article handle, such as a broom, mop, o-rthe like.
Fig. 6, a central longitudinal sectional view of the same, detached.
Similar numerals of reference design-ate like parts throughout all the figures of the drawings.
The improved protective tip or cap is pref-' erably formed of resilient material, such as a high grade of vulcanized rubber, and the protective sheath or body portion 1, maybe of any suitable and convenient form or type,
and as a convenient means of readily at-.
t-aching or mounting the same upon the end of an article handle or shaft 2, the body or sheath is provided with a suitable socket or receptacle and is also provided with a con stricted handle receiving opening 1, formed by means of the constricted neck portion 1". The walls of the sheath or cap are preferably tapered both exteriorly and in thickness from the base to the mouth of the handle receiving opening 1, as shown. 1
As a means of enabling the cap ortip to be readily passed over the tip of the handle or shaft 2, and particularly as a means of securing or looking the protecting tip or cap in position,and also as a further means of providing a wide adj ustment-and adaptability of the same to handles of varying forms and contours and relatively wide variations in diameters, the interior of the handle receiving neck or opening is proand tapered overhanging annular fins or 'vided with a plurality of axially inclined projections 1, said tapered fins or projections being undercut and spaced apart so as to be movable in an enlarging direction overlapping relation as the cap or sheath is moved over the end of the article handle or shaft 2 and frictionally engaging and closing overthe latter in separating relation and in a constricting direction with a togglelike action when moved relatively in an op posite direction, as in withdrawing the cap or tip therefrom.
As a means of providing an annular cushioning chamber about the tip of the handle and providing an impact receiving rim portion 1 the interior of .the cap or tip ma be provided with a} handle receiving an centralizing beading or fin 1, beneath the top or crown ortion of the cap, said annular beading or 1 acting to centralize the crown portion of the tipor cap relative to the tip of the handle irrespective of varying contours in the latter and also spacing the walls of the cap or sheath away from'the handle forming an annular air chamber 1, immedlately above the tip end chamber 1, which becomes sealed up or closed through thetoggle acting fins 1.
In the form shown in Figs. 5 and 6 of the drawings the cap or protecting tip is in the specific form of a bulb surrounded by a projecting rim or beading 1 and it will also be apparent upon reference to Figs.'2 and'6 of the drawingsthat the crown portion of the .tip or cap is of concavo-convex formation, forming, a sub'acent or intervening air of the handle or shaft 2.
Having thus described someof the em bodiments of my invention, without having attempted to set forth an the forms in which it may be made, or all the modes of its use, what -I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is,-
1. In a device of the character described,
'a handle, and a protectivetiphaving axially spaced resilient handle receiving and cen-' tralizing elements conjointly with said handle and tip forming an annular air cushioning chamber.
2. A protective tip, comprising a protec-- tive tip body having a constricted handle receiving opening armed on its inner periphery with annular axially inclined overhangin tapered fins opening and enlarging in over a-pping relation when moved 'rela-,
tively of the handle as the tip body is placed on t e latter and'closing .in a constricting direction with a toggle-like action upon the handle when moved relatively in an opposite described or handle Withdrawing direction. 3. In a device of the character a resilient protective sheath having a neck armed within with axially inclined and tapered projections, said fin-like projections being undercut and overhanging and open ing and enlarging in overlappm relation till as moved over and placed in position on the V end of the article and closing in separating relation with a' toggle-like action as moved relatively in an opposite or article with-.
4. In a device of the character described, a receptacle shaped protective tip having a handle receiving and centralizing annular projection within the-top ortion thereof and provided with a constricted handle receivirelg neck having axially inclined finshap projections a apted to be, opened and enlarged when the tip is'move'd relatively over the'handle and to close and clamp the same with a toggle-likeaction when-moved in an opposite direction.
5. A protective tip for handles comprising a protective ti signature.
