This invention relates to a collecting comb to facilitate the use of current types of electric razors for the trimming of long hairs at the temples and on the nape of the neck.
The invention generall aims at the utilization of modern electric razors by an individual, himself, on the back of his neck and on his temples to neatly trim the hair.
A purpose, also, is to provide an extremely simple, practical, substantial, low cost and highly efiicient comb device; especially easily applicable to the head feature of a complementary electric razor, and which is itself free of conspicuous and objectionable contrivances of awkward form whereby to effect a secure attachment of the comb to the given razor.
Particularly, it is an intent of the invention to provide a hair trimmin attachment for electric razors which needs absolutely no constructional modification of or special preparation of the given razor in order to make a secure attachment of the trimming comb; it being a noticeable object of the invention to provide a comb that is readily applied and as readily removed, and is adapted for fastening cooperation with the usual and regular features and elements of the given razor.
The invention resides in certain advancements in this art as set forth in the ensuing disclosure and has, with the above, additional objects and advantages as will be developed hereinafter, and whose constructions, combinations and details of means will be made manifest in the following description of the herewith illustrative embodiments; it being understood that modifications, variations, and adaptations and equivalents may be resorted to within the scope, spirit and principles of the invention as it is claimed in conclusion hereof.
Current electric razors have what is known as the shaving head or heads and the present invention conceives of and embodies a simple comb unit for safe and firm juxtaposition directly over the usual shaving heads of the razor.
Figure 1 is a perspective of one form of an attachable comb, and Figure 2 is a perspective of a triple head razor to which the comb of Fig. l is applicable. Figure 3 is a side elevation of the assembled comb and razor; with the applied hair pocket holding the comb in place, ready for hair trimming operation.
Figure 4 is a perspective of a slightly modified form of the comb for another type of reciprocating-cutter razor.
The razor R of Fig. 2 has a pair of parallel, transverse shear elements El-E2 which are finely perforated for admission of beard hair to interior cutters not shown. The number of transverse shearing heads vary in vibrating-action razors. In each case, however, a valley is formed between the heads. In this invention the concept is to provide a stifi comb 2, of suitable thin material, metal being preferred. The comb is of general U-shape cross-section and embodying a long corrugation 3. From the top of the corrugation the comb has laterally directed flanges 5 and 6 whose longitudinal edges are dentated to form combs l and 8. The combs may be flat as at the right, Fig. 1, or may be concavo-convex, as at the left, as will be determined by the design of the shearing device of the given razor to which the trimming comb structure is applicable.
In assembling the comb unit 2 its corrugation 3 is set into the valley or space between the upstanding, transverse elements El and E2 of the given razor, with the bottom face of the corrugation landing firmly on the valley face V, Fig. 1. Razors of the type shown in Fig. 2 are provided with a hair pocket comprisin a helical spring S, Fig. 3, whose opposite ends have anchors A to removably clip against the end faces of the upper end of the razor body. When the comb unit 2 has been laid in the valley of the head, then the hair pocket is applied over the unit 2 and an chored to the razor body by reason of tension of the transverse spring S. Fig. 3 shows the comb parts i and 8 as being spaced just a little above the adjacent shear elements El and E2; the razor then being ready for use by an individual-to trim anothers or his own neck and temple hair.
Figure l illustrates a variant form of comb unit 21) in which the comb parts l and 8 are spaced wider apart and has a basal block 2b, for adaptation to a relative form of razor structure. The side walls of the comb valley have holes h for receiving-head holding screws, one such hole being shown.
What is claimed is:
A hair trimming attachment adapted to be removably affixed to a dry shaver of the type having parallel shaver heads between which there is a valley; said attachment comprising a bod of generally U-shaped cross-section and fitting in said valley between said heads, and having along its top oppositely directed, elongated combs overhanging the said heads when said body is positioned in the valley; said attachment being held in place between said heads by means engaging in the valley of the comb and affixed to the head.
