PROTECTING AND RESTRAINING GARMENT Filed May 12, 1944 INVENTOR. Meyer W. Shanker ATTORNFY6' Patented July 15, 1947 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE PROTECTING AND RESTRAINING GARMENT Meyer W. Shanke'r, New York, Y. Application May 12, 1944, Serial No. 525,272
1 Claim. 1
My invention relates to a novel childs garment and more particularly my invention relates to a garment such as an apron or a bib so constructed as to retain a child in a desired position in a chair Without uncomfortably binding or choking the body of the child.
Previously, bibs and childrens aprons have been suggested in which ties are provided for tieing about the body of the child. With the child so secured, however, to a chair or other retaining element and the child moving away from its retention, the ties tended to wrap tightly about the body of the child. This is unsatisfactory for many reasons which are apparent.
It is the object of the present invention to provide a garment that will protect the child and retain it in a chair or high chair.
It is a further object of the present invention to provide a bib or apron for a child so constructed that the child can sit comfortably in a chair and can be retained in the chair against movement therefrom without uncomfortable restraint.
It is a further object of the present invention to provide a protective and restraining childs garment.
The objects of my invention are accomplished generally by providing a garment in which the two back ties are so constructed that they can be interlooped and interlocked with one another and the ends of the ties may be fastened over the arm or back portions of the chair or retaining element.
To this end one back tie of the garment is passed through an opening in the other and buttons or other fastening devices are engaged to prevent the ties from tightening or loosening with respect to one another when so positioned and interlocked.
Simultaneously the garment is so constructed as to provide neck pieces which are positioned and which are secured comfortably about the neck of the child so that the restraining functions of the garment are completed.
The more exact construction and function of the garment of my invention will be apparent from the drawings and specific description thereof which here follows.
Figure 1 is a plan view of the front of the protecting and restraining childs garment of my invention.
Figure 2 is a plan view of the rear of the childs garment of my invention showing the ties in operative interlocked position.
Figure 3 is a perspective view showing the garment of invention inpositio'n on the 'chi-ld with the securing ties properly fastened.
Referring now me e specifically to the drawings, in Figure 1 I show a garment H] which is adapted to be secured about the neck by neck pieces i i and T2 whammy be buttoned together by suitable fastening means such as buttons l3 and buttonholes l4.
Attached at approximately the middle of the garment H! are tie members l6 and I1. In the tie member I? is an opening [8 adapted to receive the tie member l6. On the tie member l6 are fastening means such as buttons 20 and 2|, one of which is to be secured to a receiving element such as buttonhole 22. At the end of the tie member it are buttons 24, 25 which are adapted to be engaged by the buttonhole 26. At the end of the tie member I! are buttons 28 and 29 adapted to be engaged by the receiving means such as buttonhole 30.
In Figure 2 I show the tie member l6 passing through the opening H? with the button 20 engaged in the buttonhole 22.
In Figure 3 I show the operation of the protecting garment of my invention. A child generally denoted as 35 is seated in a chair generally indicated as 36. The garment I0 is positioned on the child, the neck pieces II and I2 being secured about the childs neck by the buttons l3. The garment is secured about the child's Waist through the ties l6 and ll 50 that the child is properly retained in the chair 36 without being bound or choked about the body by the tightening of the ties. This is effected by locking the tie it in a predetermined position as it passes through the opening I8 by the button 20 which is secured in the buttonhole 22. Thus the ties I6 and I! cannot be tightened or loosened with respect to one another but are retained in their predetermined position about the child's body.
The ends of the ties I6 and I! are looped over the chair arms and secured in that position by the button 25 secured in the buttonhole 30 provided therefor and similarly the end of the tie I1 is secured about the arm of the chair and fixed in position through the engagement of the button 24 in the buttonhole 26.
At the ends of the ties, two sets of buttons are 0 provided to allow for different spacing for engaging a chair arm or back. Similarly buttons 20 and 2| are provided for different waist sizes.
It will be understood that various fastening means may be substituted for the buttons or buttonholes where set forth herein by way of specific example. Thus snap fasteners or engaging 3 elements of various structure could be employed. Further various modifications in the shape of the garment can be made and will be apparent to those skilled in the art.
It is, however, the paramount feature of my invention that the garment I is firmly secured about the waist and preferably the neck as well of the child in such a manner that it holds the child against unwanted movement firmly and without uncomfortably binding or tending to choke about the body of the child.
Various other modifications of my invention will suggest themselves to those skilled in the art. I accordingly desire that in construing the breadth of the appended claim it shall not be limited to the specific details shown and described in connection with the above explanation.
A child's protecting and restraining bib garment comprising a front bib-like portion, a first back tie and a second back tie attached to said front portion, said ties being positioned to pass around the waist of the child, an opening in said first back tie through which said second back tie may be passed, a first set of engageable fastening elements on said back ties adapted to secure said back ties together in a predetermined position after said second back tie has been passed through the opening in said first back tie a sec ond set of engageabl fastening elements disposed at the free ends of said ties, said second set of engageable fastening elements being adapted to secure said ties to retaining elements.
