COTTON-PICKERS KNEE PAD.
Application led August 29, 1925.
This invention relates to cotton pickers knee-pads and it relates more particularly to the novel arrangement and construction thereof.
The primary object of the invention is to provide a knee-pad of this description which is simple and durable and which can be quickly attached and detached from the users knee. The pad is so arranged and constructed as to provide ample protection and will remain in position when in use withont slipping, providing long wear and may be economically manufactured.
lVith the above objects in view the inveir tion will be better understood by reference to the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, and wherein:
Figures l and 2 illustrate a pair of the pads in position on each of a cotton pickers knees.
Figure 3 is a top or plan viewl of the kneepad showing the straps for attaching it to the wearers knees, and
Figure 4L is a cross-sectional view along line 4 4 of Figure 3.
The knee pad consists of a piece of felt, wool or other suitable material l as a cushion, which is notched on both sides as at 2 2 to provide for the bend of the knees. Across the notches is placed a relatively thin piece of leather 3 and upon these triangular shaped pieces and to the vfelt material or cushion is stitched an outer covering of relatively thick leather or the like t. The covering a is also notched at the same point as the notches in the cushion thus leaving the triangular-shaped pieces to act as a flex- Serial No. 53,257.
ible web when the knee is bent. The stitches S pierce the pad from side to side and hold the part firmly together.
Secured to opposite sides of the thick leather covering 4: are buckles 5 5 and straps 6 6 which are fastened around the leg above and below the knee, as shown in Figures 1 and 2. It will be noticed that the lower buckles 5 and strap 6a are arranged on the pad at an angle to enable the straps to lie one across the other as illustrated in Figures l and 2, to provide a firmer fastening and to prevent slipping.
It should be understood that the pad is not limited to any particular material nor to the specific form shown, as it may be changed and altered to come within the meaning of the following claim:
A knee-pad of the character described comprising a substantially rectangular sheet of cushioning material to contact with the wearers knee, said sheet having a pair of opposed substantially V-shaped notches in its side edges adjacent the upper end, a cover sheet stitched to one face 0f the other sheet and having` notches aligned with those aforementioned, a flexible web set into each notch and having portions stitched between said sheets, a pair of attaching straps and coacting buckles fixed to the side edge portions of the cover sheet to be carried about the leg of a wearer below the knee, and a third strap and co-acting buckle at the upper end of the cover sheet for disposition above the knee.
In testimony whereof I have affixed my signature.
