Inventor A iiorneys Patented Dec. 6, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Application March 6,
My invention relates to improvements in hair pin receptacles and supports therefor.
The primary object of my invention is the provision of practical eficient means for support- 5 ing'a hair pin receptacle on the back of the usual types of chairs used in beauty parlors, whether said backs be of the straight or curved type, and providing for adjustment of the receptacle vertically and from side to side of the chair so that hair pins or the like in the receptacle are always within easy reach of an operator when dressing either the sides, back or top of the hair.
Another object is to provide, in addition to the above, for manipulation of the receptacle, when not in use, into a position in which it will not interfere with an operator working from the back of the chair.
Other objects such as durability, ease of adjustrnent, and relatively low cost of manufacture are also comprehended by my invention all of which together with the exact nature of my improvements will be readily understood when the following description and claims are read with 5* reference to the accompanying drawings.
In said drawings:-
Figure 1 is a fragmentary view in rear elevation of the back of a straight back chair such as are used in beauty parlors and having my im- 0 proved hair pin receptacle and support attached thereto.
verse section and partly in top plan taken on the line 2--2 of Figure 1 looking in the direction of the arrows, and drawn to an enlarged scale.
Figure 3 is a detail view in transverse section taken on the line 3-3 of Figure 2 looking in the direction indicated by the arrows.
Figure 4 is a view in side elevation.
Figure 5 is a fragmentary view illustrating my hair pin receptacle and support attached to a curved back chair, and
Figure 6 is a detail view in front elevation of one of a pair of clips forming part of the support.
Referring to the drawings by numerals and particularly to Figures 1 to 4, the numeral 1 designates a portion of the back of a chair such as is used in beauty parlors, said back being transversely straight, 2 my improved hair pin receptacle, and 3 the support for the same.
According to my invention the support comprises two horizontally aligned pairs of brackets 4 at opposite sides of the back of the chair, respectively, and at a suitable distance from the top of said back.
1937, Serial No. 129,482
The brackets 4 of each pair comprise base and arm sections 5 and B, respectively, hinged together, as at l for relative swinging movement into angular relation, thebase sections i5 being Secured to the back I as by screws 8, so that, in this instance, said base sections of each pair of brackets are spaced apart vertically whereby the arm sections 6 may be extended rearwardly and. horizontally one above the other.
Spanning the arm sections 6 of each pair of brackets 4 and projecting rearwardly therefrom is a substantially U-shaped clip 9, slidably secured to said arm sections by a bolt I9 passing through suitable slots ii in the top and bottom of the clip 9 and through suitable apertures 6, in said sections tithe arrangement being such that the clip is adjustable forwardly and rearwardly on said arm sections 6. A nut E3 on the lower end of said bolt it] serves to clampthe clip 9 in adjusted position. The clip 9 is splined on its related arm sections 6 by tongues or splines M on said arm sections sliding in grooves I5 in said clip.
Suitably secured to the rear face of each clip 9, or integral therewith if desired, is a substantially square guide block it having a longitudinal rectangular aperture ll extending therethrough. A cross bar [8 is slidably mounted at its opposite ends in the guide blocks It for endwise adjustment therein. The ends of the cross bar i8 are bifurcated, as at I9, for a purpose presently apparent. Shouldered set screws 29 passing through the rear sides of the guide blocks l9 and through the bifurcated ends l9 of the cross bar into the clips 9 secure the cross bar 19 in adjusted position. Slidably mounted upon the cross bar 18, intermediate the guide blocks It, is a third guide block 2| having a pair of vertically disposed substantially rectangular apertures extending there.- through upon opposite sides of the cross bar 18 respectively. Mounted in the guide block 2! for vertical adjustment therein is a slide 22 having parallel laterally spaced legs 23 extended through the apertures, designated 25, in the said guide block 2|. A set screw 25 in the rear of the guide block 2! provides for retaining the slide 22 in adjusted position. A cross bar 25 at the lower ends of the legs 23 is suitably secured to said legs to brace the same. Secured to the top of the slide 22, as by screws 21 is a rearwardly and upwardly curved arm 28 having an arcuate rear end slotted as at 29. The receptacle 2 is of dishlike form and provided with a pair of rearwardly extending ears 3!! between which the arm 28 extends. A pivot pin 3| passing through said ears 30 and the slot 29 in the arm 28 provides for vertical swinging movement of the receptacle 2 on said arm 28. The arrangement of arm 28, slot 29 and pivot pin 3| is such that when the receptacle 2 is in use it may rest upon the top of the arm 28 to project forwardly over the back I and when it is not desired to use said receptacle the latter may be swung vertically on its pivot 3| and then downwardly to gravitate in the slot 29 into a position close behind the slide 22 in which position, as will be clear, it is out of the way of an operator working at the back of the chair.
When the back of the chair is transversely curved as indicated at 32 in Figure 5 the brackets 4 of each pair will be secured to said back in horizontally spaced relation as clearly shown in Figure 5. In this situation the pivots 1 of said brackets permit related arm sections 6 to extend rearwardly in parallel relation. The clips 9, as will be obvious, are turned, as compared with the clips in Figures 1 to 4, at an angle of ninety degrees. Otherwise the relation of parts is the same as that previously described with reference to Figures 1 to 4.
As will be manifest the receptacle 2 may be moved forwardly or rearwardly of the back i of the chair by adjusting the clips 9 on the pairs of brackets and by adjusting the cross bar l8 in the clips 9 said receptacle may be moved from side to side of the chair. Vertical adjustment of the receptacle may be effected by manipulation of the slide 22 in the guide block 2|. Also adjustment of the receptacle 2 from side to side may be effected by adjustment of the guide block 2| along the cross bar I 8. The bifurcated ends of the cross bar I8 permit the insertion of a screw driver through said bar for easy access to the screws 8 of the inside bracket 4 in the arrangement of the latter shown in Figure 5.
The foregoing is a detailed description of a preferred embodiment of my invention and it is thought that its operation, construction and advantages will be clear therefrom.
It is to be understood, however, that the present disclosure is illustrative rather than restrictive and that right is herein reserved to modifications in details described falling within the scope of the appended claims.
