CUSHION TIE STRING ATTACHMENT Filed Dec. 16, l952 INVENTOR JJ/x 1T Pia/79 Arrow/vs) Patented Sept. 25, 1934 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE CUSHION TIE STRING ATTACHMENT Jules I. Richig, Brooklyn, N. Y. Application December 16, 1932, Serial No. 647,555

4 Claims.

This invention relates to an improved means of fastening tie strings on cushions in such manner as to prevent the strings from easily becoming detached from the cushion.

It has been the practice to stitch tie strings to cushions but due to the pulling strain imposed on the stitches when a person would sit on or rest against said cushions, the strings would easily be ripped from same.

According to my invention I provide an anchor within the cushion, to which the tie strings are attached, and pass the ends of said strings through eyelets in the side of the cushion.

In the accompanying drawing I have illustrated a preferred embodiment of my invention, in which Fig. 1 illustrates a perspective view of a cushion having tie strings attached thereto.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional view taken on the line 2--2 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a still further enlarged section showing a method of applying the tie strings to an anchor member.

Fig. 4.- is a sectional view similar to Fig. 3, taken on the line 4-lof Fig. 2, showing the position of the anchor parts indicated in Fig. 3 after the said parts have been assembled, and Fig. 5, is a perspective detail of a modified form of arrangement for anchoring the tie strings.

Referring to the drawing, the cushion 10, has tufts 12 placed in spaced relation within same as indicated in Fig. 1, to retain the filler 13 in place, and has eyelet openings 16 inserted in one wall 11. Each tuft is formed by an anchor member 18 which preferably comprises a rivet having prongs 19, and a cap portion 20 adapted to be engaged by said prongs 19 when assembled therewith.

Reference character 14 indicates the tiestrings which have one portion in engagement with said anchor member 18, and have their free ends extending through eyelets 16, to permit same to be tied to a chair or the like in the usual manner. The said tie strings may be secured to the anchor member in any convenient way, one method of application of which is shown in Figs. 3 and 4. To secure the tie strings 14 in the manner shown, the prongs 19 are positioned over the end 15 of the tie strings, and the cap 20 is positioned directly beneath said prongs in such manner, that when the prongs are forced into engagement with the caps 20, they will pierce the cushion and jam the end of the tie strings 15 into the cap 20 as shown in Fig. 5. It is obvious that when the tie strings are fastened in this manner, they will be securely fixed to the cushion.

Other methods of attaching tie strings to an anchor member within the ployed, any such variations scope of the invention here cushion may be emstill being within the claimed if the principles of construction and results above described are substantially preserved.

A further modification of anchoring the tie strings within the cushion is shown in Fig. 5, in which the anchor portion comprises a knot formed on a portion of the tie strings 14a extending within the cushion 10, which knot is of 1. In combination, a cushion having anchors therein, said anchors comprising rigid members which pass through the cushion and are headed over at each end on the upper and lower surface of the cushion, and tie strings having a portion thereof extending within the cushion and secured to said anchors.

2. In combination, a cushion having tufts therein, each tuft comprising a rivet having a head portion thereon, a cap secured to the opposite end of said rivet, tie strings extending into said cushion and having one portion thereof secured within the capped end of certain of said rivets.

3. In combination, a cushion having anchor members therein, each anchor member comprising a rivet having a head and a shank portion, a cap for the lower end of said shank, tie strings having one portion thereof impinged between the lower end of said shank and the inside of said cap and having their through the cushion and beyond the wall thereof.

free ends extending spread upon engaging said cap and thereby become fixed therein, tie strings having a portion thereof within the cushion and impinged between the split lower end of the shank and the inside of the cap, and having the free end thereof extending outward through eyelets in the side wall of the cushion.
