Patented June 10, 1930 PATENT OFFICE HENRY H. FISHER, OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN SLEEVE PROTECTOR Application filed November 28, 1928.
This invention relates to improvements in sleeve protectors, which are primarily intended for use 011' coat or overcoat sleeves, and more particularly on the left sleeves,
to protect them against wear while driving.
It is an object of the invention to provide a durable, simply and cheaply made form of sleeve protector which is always held in a substantially tubular form so that it may be quickly and easily put on or removed, and which can be promptly adjusted to fit snugly around sleeves of varying sizes.
l/Vith these and other objects and advantages in view which will become apparent as the specification proceeds the invention is hereinafter more fully described with the aid of the accompanying drawings, in which:
Figure 1 shows the invention in position around a coat sleeve, and
Figure 2 is a perspective view of the invention.
Referring to the drawings, 1 designates a flexible member, which may consist of fabric or any other suitable material, from one longitudinal margin 2 of which projecting tabs 3 and a extend, one usually adjacent either end of the said member. These tabs 3 and 4: are each provided with a convenso tional snap fastener portion 5, or 6. Ar-
ranged substantially at right angles to the other longitudinal margin '7 of the flexible member, and opposite the tabs 3 and 4:, are a plurality of snap fastener portions 8 and 9 respectively. The fastener portion 5 cooperates with any one, of the fastener portions 8, and the fastener portion 6 with any one of the fastener portions 9, so that the protector may be so adjusted to lit The reason for this being that it may be desirable at one time to use a protector over a light rain coat and at another time over a heavy overcoat having" larger and thicker sleeves, and
CI by varying the adjustment of the fasteners it is possible to arrange the protector snugly around either sleeve. 10 denotes tie pieces having their ends 10 sewn, or otherwise attached, to the inner side of the flex- These pieces are so posi- Serial No. 322,356.
tions as fall within the scope of the appended claims.
lVhat I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A sleeve protector comprising a flexible member adapted to be arranged around a coat sleeve, means attached to the inner sides of said member adjacent both its ends for holding it permanently in a large and substantially tubular form, and cooperating fastener portions adjacent the opposed margins of said member adjacent both its ends so arranged that the tubular form of the latter may be reduced as desired and made to fit snugly around sleeves of varying sizes.
2. A sleeve protector comprising a flexible member, means adjacent both ends for permanently holding said member flexed in a large and substantially tubular form so that its longitudinal margins lie adjacent to one another to facilitate putting on and taking off said member, projecting tabs towards both ends of said member extending beyond one of its longitudinal margins, a fastener portion secured to each of said tabs,
and two rows of fastener portions secured
