4 claims. (01.220455) My present invention `relates to Wearing apparel and more particularly "to attachments therefor for 'theconvenience of the Vwearer during particular occupations, Vand it has for `its specific purpose to provide a simple, light and inexpensive article designed for the use of players of the game of golf t'ofacilitate 'the carrying by them upon the golf links'of the'tees Vused in driving off. A further object of the invention is to provide a tee carrier of this nature that will accommodate an adequatenumberfof the teeing devices,lwill hold themwith safety against loss and will be, not only convenient for easy attachment tothe belt, but
will remain in place at a definite point on the playerfs person."V Y
To these and other ends, the invention resides in certain improvements and combinations of parts, all as will be hereinafter more fully described, the novel features being pointed out in the claims at the end of the specification,
In the drawing: Y
Fig. 1 is a front elevation of a tele holder constructed in accordance with and Villustrating one embodiment of my invention and in position on a belt, the latter and the garment with which it is associated being shown in a fragmentary manner; v
Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal section on the line 2 2 of Fig. 1,' i
Fig. 3 is an enlarged transverse section on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1, and
Fig. 4 is a similar section on the line 4--4 of Fig. 1.
' Similar reference numerals throughout the several views indicate the same parts.
In a `general way, the device embodies a at tubular structure, preferably of leather but that may be made of fabric or similar soft material, through which tubular` member the belt is threaded to maintain the holder at the front of the wearers waistline. The outer wall or facing is provided with a plurality of looped pockets in which the tees are slipped and held and from which they may be readily, individually, withdrawn as their use is occasioned. 'Ihe rear wall or lining ofthe tubular element is so constructed that, through the medium of the belt, the device is locked in a definite position on the waistband by means of the usual belt strap of the garment.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, I indicates the body of the golf trousers or knickers at the region of the waistband,y 2 the belt straps at the waistband and 3kthe belt. The front or facing of the tubular holder is indicated at 4 and the lining or back at 5. These two elements consisting', in the present instance, of strips of soft pliable leather sewed together at their top and bottom edges by the lines of stitching t. The belt 3 is passed between them and occupies the interior, asclearly shown in the figures, but the width of the holder is substantially greater than the width Of theY belt.
Along the longitudinal center of the front or facing d is'disposed a relatively narrow strip 'l also preferably of light exible leather. It is secured thereto at intervals by staples 8. It is gathered `or bulged between the staples to pro'- duce semi-cylindrical pockets 9. The Shanks of the. known form of golf tee pegs Hl of turned wood or molded composition occupy these pockets. The
'.latter are cut back at their tops, as shown at il,
which permits the conical heads l 2 of the tees to lie snugly therein.
It will be noticed that the facing A is so wide or high that the topsv i2 of the tees do not come anywhere near the upper edge thereof. Furthermore the bulge of the facing, due to the presence of the belt (which condition is exaggerated in Figs. 3 and 4), causes it to conform to the taper of the tee heads I2. The result of this is that the tees are not subject to such lateral contact and pressure as would tend to cause them to work out of the strap pockets and fall from place, while at the same time the material of the shirt worn by the user cannot crowd over the top edge of the holder suiciently to interfere with the fingers in extracting the tees.
The rear face or lining 5 is not continuous but is provided with an intermediate transverse opening I3, shown in dotted lines in' Fig. 1. This v performs two functions. It allows the lining to crimp on the shorter radiusof the inside of the attachment so that the facing will lie close against the outer surface `of the belt. This space is further occupied by one of the belt strapsl 2, so that when the belt is run through the holder and the belt strap, as shown in Fig. 2 particularly, the belt strap referred to prevents the device from sliding and becoming misplaced longitudinally of the belt.
A tee holding device constructed in accordance with my invention, as disclosed, may be made to V -sell at small cost from leather scraps or trimmings, it is comfortable to the wearer, easy of access and maintains its intended position at all times while securely retaining the tees without liability of loss.
, I claim as my invention:
1,. In an article of the character described, the combination with a belt and a relatively long belt-like flat tubular flexible element strung upon the belt and embodying a front portion of considerably greater width than the belt and a back portion secured thereto, of a strip of flexible material secured at intervals and extending longitudinally at the center of the front portion to provide a plurality of pockets, said strip being narrower than the front portion so that the conical heads of golf tees occupying the pockets will lie well below the upper edge of the front portion and the upper edge of the belt, the back portion being additionally provided with an intermediate vertical opening to be occupied by a belt strap for the purpose described.
2. A belt attachment of the character described comprising a tubular holder having facing and back strips permanently attached together along their upperand lower edges and unattached along their upright edges providing a. longitudinal space therebetween adapted to removably receive a belt which passes from end to end of said attachment, and a relatively narrow strip of material attached atl intervals and extending longitudinally of the facing strip providing a plurality ofpockets for receiving golf tees, said narrow strip having its upper edge a substantial distance below the upper edge of the facing strip to dispose the heads of the golf tees well below the upper edge of the facing strip.
3. A belt attachment of the character described comprising a tubular holder having facing and back strips permanently attached together along their upper and lower edges and un= attached along their upright edges providing a longitudinal space therebetween adapted to removably receive a belt which passes from end to end of said attachment, and a relatively narrow strip of material attached at intervals and extending longitudinally of the facing strip providing a plurality of pockets for receiving golf tees, said narrow strip having its upper edge a substantial distance below the upper edge of the facing strip to dispose the heads of the golf tees well below the upper edge of the facing strip, said narrow strip having notches in the upper edges thereof in the pockets to receive the heads of the tees snugly.
4. A belt attachment of the character described comprising a tubular holder having facing and back strips permanently attached together along their upper and lower edges and unattached along their upright edges providing a longitudinal space therebetween adapted to removably receive a belt which passes from end to end of said attachment, and a relatively narrow strip of material attached at intervals and extending longitudlnally of the facing strip providing a plurality of pockets for receiving golf tees, said narrow strip having its upper edge a substantial distance below the upper edge of the facing strip to dispose the heads of the golf tees well below the upper edge of the facing strip, the back strip having longitudinally spaced slits therein with the material between the slits pressed forward on the front side of the belt and providing a transverse belt strap receiving opening intermediate the ends of the attachment preventing longitudinal displacement thereof relative to the belt.
