FINGER PROTECTOR Filed June 28, 1941 kg? 2 V Inventor M/L 7'0/v E g/H/V S.
Attorney Patented June 9, 1942 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE FINGER PROTECTOR Milton E. Joh-ns, Shreveport, La.
Application June 28, 1941, Serial No. 400,313
The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in finger protectors and has for its primary object to provide a thin rubber stall adapted to completely cover the finger and having internal and external circumferential ribs adapted to provide added gripping means for the protector to prevent slipping thereof on the finger and also to provide added gripping means for an object engaged by the finger.
A further object is to provide a finger protector of simple and practical construction, which is strong and durable, relatively inexpensive to manufacture and otherwise well adapted for the purposes for which the same is intended.
Other objects and advantages reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawing forming part hereof, wherein like reference numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which- Figure 1 is a side elevational view.
Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view, and
Figure 3 is an end elevational view.
Referring now to the drawing in detail the numeral 5 designates a thin rubber finger stall which is open at one end and has its other end rounded and closed as shown at 6.
Ribs 1 are formed on the inner surface of the stall and ribs 8 are formed on the outer surface, said ribs extending circumferentially continuously around the walls and are positioned directly opposite each other on the inner and outer surfaces of the stall. The ribs are preferably moulded in the walls of the stall and are of oval shape in cross section.
10 It is believed the details of construction, operation and manner of use of the device will be readily understood from the foregoing without further detailed explanation.
Having thus described the invention, what I claim is:
1. A finger stall of thin rubber, rounded and closed at one end, and a plurality of internal and external annular ribs on the Walls of said stall I to provide a duplicate internal and external construction when the stall is worn with either surface outermost.
2. A finger stall comprising a thin rubber tube open at one end and rounded and closed at its other end, and a plurality of internal and external ribs extending circumferentially of the tube at spaced intervals, the internal and external ribs being moulded with the tube and of substantially oval shape in cross section, said ribs being closely spaced from each other adjacent the closed end of the tube, and said internal and external ribs being disposed directly opposite each other on the respective inner and outer surfaces of the tube.
