This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in barrettes, and a general object ofthe invention is to provide .a device of this kind which is simple and durable in construction as well as eicient in use.
More specifically, the invention relates to improvements in barrettes of the clasp, type wherein the hair is adapted to be gripped or clasped between the body or bar of the `barrette and a resilient clasping arm lixed to the rear side of said body. or bar.v
A further object is'to provide a clas barrette of the above kind wherein simp e and eective provision is made for preventing slippin of the barrette downwardly on the hair w en operatively engaged with the latter. l
A still further object is' toecooperatively construct and associate they bar and clasp arm so that the barrette is effectively held against dropping from the hair or from being accidentally disengaged from the hair by longitudinal movement of the barrette.
A more specific object is to provide simple and effective means for joining the clasp arm to the bar or body so as to provide a simple and durable construction enabling the practical use of pyrox` lirr or similar;
material for the bar or y and resilient wire or .sheet metal for the clasp arm.
-Other objects will become apparent as the.
nature of the invention is better understood, and the same 'consists in the novel form,
combination and arrangement of parts here inafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawin and claimed.
In the drawing, w erein like reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views,
Figurel is a view illustrating the barrette in use upon the hair;
Fi'gure'2 is a front elevational view of the barrette shown in Figure c1, drawn on a larger scale; Y i Figure 3 is a bottom plan view barrette shown in Figure 2;
Figure 4 is a central longitudinal section taken substantially upon line 4'4 of Figure 2' ,Figure 5 isa rear elevational view ofthe barrettev shown in Figure 2; and .Y
Figure 6 is an enlarged transverse section taken substantially upon line 6-6 of Figure 3.
.Referring more in detail tothe drawing thi; embodment of the invention illustrate comprises a bar o'r elongated ornamental body 5` preferably constructed of pyroxylin material or the like and having-a longitudinal groove 6 formed-centrally in its rear face as well as extendingA from end to end of the same, one end of the body being di-v rected rearwardly or provided with a rearwardly directed flange as at 7.
' The barrette further includes` a resilient flexible metallic clamping arm 8 disposed at the rear side of the body 5 landextending from end to end of the latter as well as prof' vided intermediate its ends with transverse crimps or corrugations 9 so lthat it will not readily pull longitudinally out of the hair when threaded into the latter with Asome of the hair dis osed between the clasp arm and the body. I)his clamp arm 8 is attachedv at one end to the end of the body 5 rovided with the rearwardly directed end and is normally tensionedto haveit's major free end portion between and at opposite sides of the crimps 9 to lie'in and engage the bottom of the g'roove 6. Thus, when the clamp of the latter willv be clasped between the body 5 and the arm 8 and crimped into the Groove' 6 between and at opposite sides of lthe crimps 9 of said arm '8. Naturally, this will'eifectively prevent downward movement .arm 8` isthreaded into the hair portions of the barrette on the hair and consequent accidental disengagement of the barrettefrom the hair 'fromthiscause In order to facilitate the 'en ement of the barrette with the hair an the threadin of the arm 8 into the hair, the free end o said arm 8' is extended beyond the adjacent end of the body 5 and directed'rearwardly slightly as l The opposite end of the arm 8 is return, bent forwardly and inwardly as at 11 to' flatly engage v1n the portion of the roove .'6 in and adjacent the rearwardly dlrected of the end 7, and a rigid strip 12 ofl yroxylin or similar material is permanent y united to the body 5 so as to-overlie the end portion 11 of the arm 8 and the adjacent portion of the groove 6 whereb said endportion 11 of the arm l8 is firm y fastened tothe bar 5. More specifically, the fold 13 at the return bent end portion of the arm-8 engagesf the inner -side of therearwardly directed end 7 and the bottom of the portion of the invention as claime v groove 6 inthe latter, and this prevents endwise displacement of the arm 8 in one directionrelative to the body 5, while theouter end of the strip 12v engages the inner side of the fold 13 and prevents lon itudinal dislacement of the arm 8 in the ot er direction.
y reason of this arrangement and the fact that the strip 12 ovei'lies and tightly contacts the end portion 11 of the arm 8, a very rigid attachment of the latter to the body is had so as to rovide a durable and simple construction. y one of various well known methods of uniting the members 5 and 12 may be racticed, such as vulcanizing, cementing or t e like.
VFrom the vforegoing description it is be- -lieved that the construction and manner of use as well as the advantages of the present inventionl will be' readil understood and aprleciated by thosel ski led in the art.
`nor changes may be made Without idepartin from the 'pirit and scope of the What I claim as new isz- 1. A barrette comprising a bar having a lngitudinal groove in the back thereof, and a resilient rigidly mountedv arm upon the back of said bar and having av free extension seating in said groove -for gripping the hair and crimping it into saidJ groove.
2. A barrette comprising a bar having a longitudinal oove in the back thereof, and
. an arm rigi y mounted upon the back of` directed end a resi said'bar for gripping the hair and crimping it into said groove,said arm being resilient and lte'nsionecl to be .normally` disposed in said roove. 4
3.' barrettev comprisin a bar having a longitudinal roove in the ack thereof, and an arm rigid y mounted upon the rback `of said bar for gripping the hair and) crimping it into said groove, said arm being attached at one end to the bar and having transverse crimps intermediate its ends.
4. A clasp barrette comprising a bar, and a resilient clasping arm havin one end free and rigidly attached at the ot er end to the back of the bar near one endv of the latter, said bar having spaced groove portions in the back thereof, and 'said clasping arm hav@- ing transverse crimps between its ends and normally engaging 1n said groove portions at pointsbetween said crimps. l v
5. A barrette including a bar having a longitudinal back roove and a rearwardly ient clasping arm having an end portlon folded and return bent for- Wardly and inwardl with the fold part engaging the innersi e of the rearwardly directed end and the inwardly extending part seatedin the groove and a. securing strip and at opposite sides of overlying. said inwar ly extending partI and united tothe back of the bar.
