Hair slide
US 20060266377 A1
Abstract
A hair slide includes a decorative plate, a clamping plate having a first end pivotally mounted on a first end of the decorative plate and a second end snapped onto a second end of the decorative plate, an elastic plate secured on the decorative plate and located between the decorative plate and the clamping plate, and a soft tough member secured on the elastic plate and located between the elastic plate and the clamping plate. Thus, the second face of the soft tough member has a protruding shape to increase the friction between the clamping plate and the soft tough member, thereby enhancing the clamping effect of the hair slide.

Description
    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    1. Field of the Invention
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates to a hair slide, and more particularly to a hair slide having a better clamping effect and having different hair styling effects.
  • [0003]
    2. Description of the Related Art
  • [0004]
    A conventional hair slide 1 in accordance with the prior art shown in FIGS. 9 and 10 comprises a decorative plate 11, a clamping plate 12 having a first end pivotally mounted on a first end of the decorative plate 11 and a second end snapped onto a second end of the decorative plate 11, and an elastic plate 13 secured on the decorative plate 11 and located between the decorative plate 11 and the clamping plate 12. However, the clamping plate 12 and the elastic plate 13 have a smooth contact face so that the clamping plate 12 and the elastic plate 13 cannot clamp a user's hair closely, thereby easily causing a slip of the user's hair. In addition, the elastic plate 13 is made of metallic material and has a sharp edge, so that when the hair slide 1 falls onto the ground, the elastic plate 13 easily springs upward to hurt the user by its sharp edge, thereby causing danger to the user.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0005]
    The primary objective of the present invention is to provide a hair slide, wherein the second face of the soft tough member has a protruding shape to increase the friction between the clamping plate and the soft tough member, thereby enhancing the clamping effect of the hair slide.
  • [0006]
    Another objective of the present invention is to provide a hair slide, wherein the second face of the soft tough member has a substantially corrugated shape so that the user's hair has a branched style, thereby enhancing the hair styling effect of the hair slide.
  • [0007]
    A further objective of the present invention is to provide a hair slide, wherein the soft tough member has a soft and loose feature so that the soft tough member holds the user's hair in an elastic manner without hurting the user's hair.
  • [0008]
    A further objective of the present invention is to provide a hair slide, wherein the soft tough member has a relatively greater elasticity, so that the user's hair is positioned between the clamping plate and the soft tough member rigidly and stably.
  • [0009]
    A further objective of the present invention is to provide a hair slide, wherein the second face of the soft tough member has different shapes so that the user's hair has different styles, thereby enhancing the hair styling effect of the hair slide.
  • [0010]
    A further objective of the present invention is to provide a hair slide, wherein the soft tough member has a relatively greater elasticity, so that the hair slide is used during a long-term utilization, thereby enhancing the lifetime of the hair slide.
  • [0011]
    A further objective of the present invention is to provide a hair slide, wherein the soft tough member has a shock-absorbing effect, so that when the hair slide falls onto the ground, the shock applied on the hair slide is absorbed by the soft tough member, thereby preventing the hair slide from hurting a person when being sprung upward.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • [0023]
    Referring to the drawings and initially to FIGS. 1-3, a hair slide 2 in accordance with the preferred embodiment of the present invention comprises a decorative plate 21, a clamping plate 22 having a first end pivotally mounted on a first end of the decorative plate 21 and a second end detachably snapped onto a second end of the decorative plate 21, an elastic plate 23 secured on the decorative plate 21 and located between the decorative plate 21 and the clamping plate 22, and a soft tough member 24 secured on the elastic plate 23 and located between the elastic plate 23 and the clamping plate 22.
  • [0024]
    The soft tough member 24 is made of a foamable material and has a first face 240 secured on the elastic plate 23 and a second face 242 rested on the clamping plate 22. The first face 240 of the soft tough member 24 has a smooth shape secured on a smooth inner face of the elastic plate 23, and the second face 242 of the soft tough member 24 has a non-smooth protruding shape rested on a smooth inner face of the clamping plate 22.
  • [0025]
    Referring to FIGS. 1-4, a user's hair is closely clamped between the decorative plate 21 and the clamping plate 22 and positioned by the soft tough member 24 in an elastic clamping manner. In addition, the second face 242 of the soft tough member 24 provides an anti-slip effect to the user's hair.
  • [0026]
    Referring to FIG. 5, the second face 242A of the soft tough member 24A of the hair slide 2A has a substantially corrugated shape.
  • [0027]
    Referring to FIG. 6, the second face 242B of the soft tough member 24B of the hair slide 2B has a substantially single domed shape.
  • [0028]
    Referring to FIG. 7, the second face 242C of the soft tough member 24C of the hair slide 2C has a substantially convex shape.
  • [0029]
    Referring to FIG. 8, the second face 242D of the soft tough member 24D of the hair slide 2D has a substantially serrated shape.
  • [0030]
    Accordingly, the second face of the soft tough member has a protruding shape to increase the friction between the clamping plate and the soft tough member, thereby enhancing the clamping effect of the hair slide. In addition, the second face of the soft tough member has a substantially corrugated shape so that the user's hair has a branched style, thereby enhancing the hair styling effect of the hair slide. Further, the soft tough member has a soft and loose feature so that the soft tough member holds the user's hair in an elastic manner without hurting the user's hair. Further, the soft tough member has a relatively greater elasticity, so that the user's hair is positioned between the clamping plate and the soft tough member rigidly and stably. Further, the second face of the soft tough member has different shapes so that the user's hair has different styles, thereby enhancing the hair styling effect of the hair slide. Further, the soft tough member has a relatively greater elasticity, so that the hair slide is used during a long-term utilization, thereby enhancing the lifetime of the hair slide. Further, the soft tough member has a shock-absorbing effect, so that when the hair slide falls onto the ground, the shock applied on the hair slide is absorbed by the soft tough member, thereby preventing the hair slide from hurting a person when being sprung upward.
  • [0031]
    Although the invention has been explained in relation to its preferred embodiment(s) as mentioned above, it is to be understood that many other possible modifications and variations can be made without departing from the scope of the present invention. It is, therefore, contemplated that the appended claim or claims will cover such modifications and variations that fall within the true scope of the invention.
