VISOR Filed May 20. 1931 INVENTOR. 1216M? CLELLHM ATTORNEYS Patented Oct. 25, I 1932 UNITED STATES ROBERT K. MCGLELLAN, 0F LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA VISOR Application filed May 20, 1931. Serial No. 538,819.

This invention relates to improvements in visors and has particular reference to a visor adapted to be worn for the purpose of shielding the eyes.

5 The principal object of the invention is to produce a visor which is neat in appearance, light in weight and one which is comfortable.

Another object is to produce a visor which may be worn either with or without glasses.

. 9 A further object is to produce a visor which may be readily adjusted to lit the wearer without the necessity of using tools to effect the adjustment.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent during the course of the following description.

In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,

Figure 1 is a perspective view of my visor as employed when wearing glasses,

Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure 1 showing the visor in use without glasses,

Figure 3 is a front view of the visor as the same would appear without glasses,

Figure 4 is a front view of my visor as the same would appear with glasses,

Figure 5 is a rear elevation of the visor,

30 Figure 6 is a plan view of the visor and Figure 7 is a fragmentary detail view showing the manner in which the retaining wire is secured to the central portion of the visor.

Visors are commonly employed to prevent glare. These, however, are ordinarily secured to the head by a band extending around the head or by several bands passing over ,{3 the head. These visors engage the head tightly and therefore prevent the circulation of air and consequently causes perspiration which is objectionable. These visors are also of considerable weight which is an objection to many wearers. Applicant has therefore devised a visor which is of small proportions, light in weight and readily adjustable so that the same may be worn with or without glasses and without inconvenience to the wearer and due to its slightly bowed contour a space is provided so that perspiration about the head is prevented.

In the accompanying drawing wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 5 designates a blank of any desired material preferably a transparent material to which is secured a strip of paper 6 or other opaque material. Openings 7 and 8 are formed in the blank 5 at points adjacent the ends thereof and provided for the reception of a resilient wire 9. This wire is bent at its ends so as to form temples 11. These temples are preferably covered with a tubular material such as commonly sold under the trade name of spaghetti. At the point of connection between the temple portion and the main portion of the wire, an offset 12 is formed which offset permits the temples 11 to pass around the temple portions of spectacles so that the temple portion of the visor will contact the side of the wearers face. This feature {is illustrated in Figures 1 and 41.

The wire 9 also engages the blank 5 at a point adjacent its center portion by being passed through a diagonal slot 13 extending tangentially from an opening 14 to an opening 16. The result of this last mentioned construction is that when the wire has been passed through the diagonal slot- 13 it will lie in the position shown in Figure 5. This places a slight bend in the blank 5 so that the blank only contacts the head at its center Having thus described my invention, I 7

claim In a Visor of the character described, a blank having openings adjacent its ends a resilient Wire extending through said openings, said wire having its end portions bent so as to form temple portions, an offset formed in said Wire at the junction of each of the temple portions and the Wire, and means for securingthe. medial portion ofsaid blank to said wire, said means comprising spaced openings adjacent the medial portion, and a slot extending.) tangentially be tween said openings.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature:
