UNITED STATES 1,585,006 PATENT OFFICE.
RHOIDA THOMAS ZELL, OF PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA.
Application filed January 23, 1926. Serial No. 83,343.
' This invention relates to a brush or wiper especiallydesigned for use in wiping windows, showcases or the like, the brush head embodying a length of wire bent in such a way as to insure against the same breaking or scratching the glass being cleaned. I
The primary object of the invention is to provide a device of this character wherein a chamois may be handled with facility, eliminating the necessity of the person using the chamois, touching the chamois with his hands.
A further object of the invention is to so construct the head of the wiper that the wiper may be forced into corners and re stricted places to accomplish its purpose.
A still further object of the invention is to provide a support constructed in such a way that when the chamois is secured there to, the chamois will be securely held in such a way that the small strips may not work up between the sides of the wire forming the brush head when the chamois is wet and being used. With the foregoing and other objects in View which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter de scribed and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, may be made within the scope of what is claimed, with out departing from the spirit of the invention.
Referring to the drawing:
Figure 1 is a side elevational view of a device constructed in accordance with the invention.
Figure 2 is a plan view thereof.
Figure 3 is a sectional view through the body portion of the device taken longitudinally thereof.
Figure 4; is a transverse sectional View through the body portion.
Referring to the drawing in detail, the device embodies a length of wire indicated generally by the reference character 5 which is bent intermediate its ends to provide a loop portion 6, the ends of the length of wire being broughttogether as at 7 where they are passed into a suitable opening provided in the handle 8 which may be of any desired construction.
As shown by Figure 1, the length of wire is bent downwardly at 9 where the same curves upwardly as at 10'thereby providing a body portion which may be operated with facility when cleaning corners or restricted places in show cases or show windows or the like.
The chamois which constitutes thewiping element of the device embodies lengths of material folded upon itself intermediate its side edges, there being provided three of such lengths of chamois in the construction of the present brush, however it is to be understood that the number of lengths of chamois in the construction of the wiper, depends upon the size and shape thereof, and it is within the scope of the present invention to employ as many lengths of chamois material as deemed necessary.
The lengths of chamois are indicated by the reference character 11 and are positioned over the wire body portion so that the body portion engages the chamois at the point where the chamois is folded and as shown by Figure 3, a line of stitching indicated at 12 is employed for securing the chamois to the body portion.
This line of stitching 12 is passed through the chamois material at a point adjacent to the body port-ion or wire material to insure against slipping of the chamois on the wire body portion.
To further increase the efliciency of the wiper, the strips of chamois material are slit from the edges thereof to points adjacent -to the line of stitching 12, thereby providing substantially narrow strips of chamois indicated at 13, which will operate as a brush or as a wiper, and due to the construction of the body portion, it will be obvious that the wiper can be forced into corners or other restricted places that cannot be reached in the usual way, that is to say, when a chamois is used in the hand of a person for wiping a glass surface.
In order that the device may be conveniently positioned for drying, a hook such as indicated at 14 is secured in one end of the handle so that the wiper may be hung from a suitable supporting nail or bracket.
1. In a device of the character described,
length of wire bent intermediate its ends to provide a loop, the ends of the wire being brought together and forced into the handle portion, a wiping element including lengths of chamois material folded intermediate their side edges and secured to the loop portion, and said Chamois material being slit from its edges to points adjacent to the body portion.
2. In a device of the character described, a body portion including a length of Wire folded intermediate its ends to provide a loop portion, lengths of Chamois material folded intermediate their side e lges and positioned one upon the other and secured to the loop portion, a handle, said body portion being secured to the handle.
3. In a device of the character described, a body portion including a length of wire material bent intermediate its end to provide a loop portion, and a pair of arms, lengths of relatively wide fluxible sheet material positioned one upon the other and folded over and secured to the body portion, and said Wide material being formed with slits extending from the edges thereto to points adjacent to the body portion.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto afiixed my signature.
