HERMAN H. SUNVOLD, OF SACRED HEART, MINNESOTA.
Application filed April 18, 1927. Serial No. 184.728.
This invention relates to a combinat-ion comb and cli therefor, and has for its primary object t e provision in a unitary structure of a substantial type of comb and a clip of a novel construction and associated with the comb in a novel manner.
An object of the invention is to so associate a clip with one end of the comb that the clamping of the comb to a pocket or other article is facilitated.
Another object of the invention is the novel construction of a clip and mode of attachment to the comb so as to increase the vieldable action thereof and to materially lower the cost of manufacture and assemblage.
Besides the above, my invention is distinguished in the construction of a clip including a clamp section and attaching section so related that pressure may easily be brought 2o to bear upon the attaching portion so as to give the required movements to the clamp section in attaching the comb to a pocket or other article.
lVith these and other' objects in View, my invention will be better understood from a description of the same when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, wherein Figure 1 is a front elevation of my improved comb construction;
Figure 2 is an edge elevation;
Figure 3 is a sectional view on the line 3-3 of Figure 1;
Figure 4 is a side elevation of another form of my invention;
Figure 5 is a sectional view on the line 5-5 of Figure 4.
Again referring to the drawing illustrating two of the many constructions of my invention, and more particularly to' Figures 1 to 3 inclusive, the numeral 1 designates a comb of ordinary structure, with the exception that at one end the same is provided with a slot 2 and an opening 3. My improved clip i associated with the comb whereby the comb may be effectively held within a pocket or attached to any other suitable article consists of a single strip 5 of resilient metal bent to provide the attaching section 6, the clamp section 7 and the connecting section 8 that slidably passes through the slot 2. The attaching section 6 is of U-shaped formation to provide a pair of limbs 10 and 11 yieldably associated so that the limb 11 may be 5 yieldably forced toward the limb 10 when pressure is applied to the latter by the thumb or finger of the operator. The limb 10 is proopening 3 for the reception of the rivet 13` so that the clip may be effectively secured to the comb.
`The resilient action of the attaching section normally holds the clamp section 7 in tight yieldable engagement with the comb and when it is desired to attach the comb to a pocket or other article, pressure is brought to bear against the limb 11 for yieldably moving the same toward limb 10 for forcing the clamp section 7 away from the comb'to allow the insertion therebetween of the article to which the comb is to be attached.
In Figures 4 and 5, I have shown the comb and clip so constructed and associated that the rivet can be dispensed with and the finger grip and clamp positioned contiguous to the same side of the comb. In this construction y the comb 14: is provided with a slot 15 that receives the lug 16 formed on the U-shaped attaching section 17 that straddles the associated end of the comb. This clip is also provided with a clamp section 18 and an intermediate connectinor section 19, which in this particular case is ormed into a hand grip 20 yieldably connected to the attaching section, as indicated at 21, so that when the finger grip is resiliently moved toward the attaching section, the clamp section will move away from the clamp, and when the finger grip is relieved of pressure the yieldable action of the connecting portion 21 will force the clamp section into clamping engagement with the side of the comb.
From the foregoing description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, it will be apparent that I rovide a simplified construction of comb and) clip connected together as a unitary structure and which may be very easily manipulated, while at the same time having the required resiliency `to accolnplish an e'ective grip.
It is, of course, to be understood that the design and shape of the various parts may be changed and mode of attachment of the clip to the comb accomplished in various other manners than illustrated and, therefore, I do not desire to be limited in any respect except as set forth in the following claims.
I claim 1. In combination, a comb provided with a slot, a yieldable strip bent to provide an attaching section yieldably secured to one side of the comb, a clamp section yieldably engaging the opposite side of the comb, sind L conneeting` section between the clamp section and attaching section and slidehly passed through said slot.
2. In combination, a eonib providedwith a slot and :in opening contiguous to the slot, :L resilient strip hent to provide e U-shaped attaching section havingone limb provided With en opening` aligning with said iirst opening, a rivet passing through said openings 'for segni'ing` the attaching section to the comb, sziid eti'ip being further provided With a conneeting section slidehly passed through said slot, and e clamp section e continuation ot the Connecting section and yieldztbly preesing against the opposite side ol the eonih.
3. In combination, :i comb comprising e flat body of the saine Width throughout its length, teeth formed on one longitudinal edge of the body and terminatingl shortof one end thereof, said end defining n smooth gripping; portion, a resilient pocket clip Connected to and eooperiting'withseid'gi'ip portion et the longitudinal center thereof.
et, ln combination, a. 'eonih comprising :i flat body having teeth oiined on one longitndinal edge thereof, said body heine` of the seine Width throughout its length, the teeth terminating short of one end of Seid hodjv defining e smooth gripping portion, seid n'i'ipping portion he 'ing n ti'ztnsveiee slot and e Clip interlocking; with seid Slot and yieldehly engaging one side of the eoinh.
In testimony whereof I eiiix my Signature.
