CHILD RESTRAINER Filed Feb. 14, 1947 INVENTOR. We new JOIIOI/KBGV Y 7 BY Patented Sept. 18, 1951 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,568,304 I 01111.1) RESTRAINER 7 Nathan Schoenbrun, Scranton, Pa. Application February 14, 1947, Serial No. 728,441

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in childrens restrainers and harnesses of which the following is a specification.

3Claims. (Cl. 227-49) The primary object of this invention resides in the provision of a restraining device adapted to be comfortably worn by the child without harming and irritating the tender flesh of the child.

Another object of this invention is the provision of such a device which may be incorporated with an infant's coat or other article of clothing and which is worn over the shoulders of the child and is adapted to restrain the upper body of the child, and such a device which may be hooked to a harness for the child which is not visible on the wearer and which eliminates the wear and rubbing to the exterior of the garment worn with the restrainer as well as elimination of strain to the buttons and seams of the garment.

Another and still further object of this invention is the provision of a restraining device of the character set forth herein which is constructed from a few simple, durable and inexpensive parts which do not easily get out of order and which are easily and quickly applied to the child or incorporated into his garments as described.

With the above and still other obvious objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel detailsin design and construction, and it may be understood that various modifications may be resorted to within the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Having reference now to the accompanying drawings:

Fig. 1 is a pictorial view the restrainer assembled with a coat and harness.

Fig. 2 is a back open view of the coat and restraining device therewith.

Fig. 3 is a perspective View of the harness.

Referring now to the accompanying drawings which illustrate the preferred embodiment of this invention and in which like numerals indicate similar parts throughout A and B designate a pair of semi-circular chest encircling strap members joined by a rivet I or the like at two free ends of these members to constitute a chest strap for encircling the chest of an infant, and a second pair of substantially U-shaped shoulder engaging loops 2 and 3 are secured each at one free end thereof to the rivet l and the second free end of each of said U-shaped straps secured one to each free end of the straps A and B.

This arrangement provides for a pair of loops adapted to be supported over the shoulders of a child with the rivet in the small of the childs 2 back and the free ends of the straps being posed over the chest of the child.

' A pair of semi-circular waist encircling members 4 and 5 are secured at a spaced distance below the straps A and B by means of upwardly extending arms 6 and I at the rearward ends thereof which are also secured to the rivet I and extend about the sides and waist or abdomen of thechild. The strap members 4 and 5 form a waist encircling strap do similar to the chest encircling strap lll described above.

A swivel hook 8 is secured in an extended position rearwardly from the rivet l adapted to receive the snap hook 9 carried by one end of the leash Hi.

All of the straps are made from a fabric material covering spring metal bands which normally retain them in their curved body encircling condition, as would leatherette or the like.

The assembled restrainer is adapted to be placed directly on a child or to be formed within the lining of a coat, as illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2 with the leash hook extending outward therethrough.

It may be readily seen that modifications in material, means of fastenings and like changes in the preferred concept of this invention would fall within the inventive concept set forth.

Having thus described and explained this invention and with full belief that modifications of the character set forth would not constitute departure from the spirit of the invention what I desire to claim in Letters Patent is:

1. A childs harness comprising a first pair of resilient straps each permanently curved longitudinally to a substantially U-shaped form, a rivet securing said straps together at corresponding ends thereof to provide a resilient chest encircling member, a second pair of resilient straps each permanently curved longitudinally to a substantially U-shaped form and each having one end connected to said rivet and its other end connected to a respective strap of said first pair of straps at the end of the associated strap of said first pair remote from said rivet, the associated straps of said first and second pairs constituting shoulder receiving loops, 2. third pair of resilient straps permanently curved longitudinally to substantially U-shaped form and each having one end connected to said rivet so that the two straps of said third pair together constitute a waist encircling member spaced from said chest encircling member, the straps of said first and third pairs having their ends remote from said rivet separated so that said harness discan be sprung open to facilitate the application thereof to a child's body, and a swivel hook secured to said rivet for the attachment of a leash to said harness.

2. A childs harness comprising a first pair of resilient straps each permanently curved longitudinally to a substantially U-shaped form, a rivet securing said straps together at corresponding ends thereof to provide a resilient chest encir lin member, a second p ir f re ili n straps each permanently curved longitudinally to a substantially U-shaped form and each having one end connected to said rivet and its other end connected to a respective strap of said first pair of straps at the end of the associated strap of said first pair remote from said rivet, the as. sociated straps of said first and second pairsconstituting shoulder receiving loops, a third pair of resilient straps permanently curved, longitudinally to substantially U-shaped form and each havin one end cennected to said rivet so that the t st aps cf said. t ird pair to ether con stibite at waist encircling mem e spaced fro said chest eneir iins member, the s aps of said and third Pairs having their ends remote from said rivet. separated so that said. harness can e vsprun pen to facilitate the ap icati n thereof: to a childs body, and a swivel hook secured to said rivet, for the ttac ment of a leash to said h rnes each. of aid strap com,- prising a flat band. er: resilient ma erial and a severing of fabric enelcsm said bande- 3 A harness comprisi g a first. pair of resilient straps ea h permanently curved ion.- gitudinally to a substantially U-shaped dorm, a riretsecuringsaid straps together at correspQn ins ends thereof to provide a resi ient ch s encirclin member; a second pair of resilient str ps each permanently c rved longi u ina ly to a. substantially U-shaped. form each ha h s one. end connected to. said rivet and i s othe end connected to a respective strap of said first pair of straps at the end of the associated strap of said first pair remote from said rivet, the associated straps of said first and second pairs constituting shoulder receiving loops, a third pair of resilient straps permanently curved longitudinally to substantially U-shaped form and each having one end connected to said rivet so that the two straps of said third pair together constitute a waist encircling member spaced from said chest encircling member, the straps of said first and third pairs having their ends remote from said rivet separated so that said harness, can be sprung open to facilitate the application thereof to a childs body, and a swivel hook secured to said rivet for the attachment oi a leash to said harness, each of said straps comprising a fiat band of resilient material and a. covering of fabric enclosing said band, and each of the straps of said third pair having at its and adjacent said rivet a portion disposed at an an le to the remainder of the Strap and secured at its distal end tosaid rivet for SpfiQF ing the straps of said third pair from the straps of said first pair.
