SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 341,127,dated May 4, 1886.

(No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Beit known that I, SAMUEL BRETZETELD, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Belt-Buckles, of which the following is a specification.

The object of my invention is to provide a new and improved belt-buckle which is simple in construction, fastens the belt wherever de sired, and is not provided with pins which perforate the belt for the purpose of holding it, and thus does not require the belt to be provided with' apertures or slots.

The invention consists in the special construction of the buckle, as will be fully described and set forth hereinafter, and then pointed out inthe claim.

In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this speciiication, and in which like letters of reference indicate like parts, Figure l is a perspective view of a belt provided with my improved buckle. Fig. 2 is a front View of my improved buckle. Fig. 3 is a cene tral longitudinal sectional view of the saine. Fig. LLis an enlarged cross-sectional view of the same on the line x m, Fig. 2.

The buckle is formed ofthe plate A, which is provided with the two longitudinal slots B, between which the central bar,C, is formed. At the outer edges of the slots B the fianges D are formed, which are inclined inward and toward each other at about an angle of fortyve degrees, as shown, but may, if desired, be at right angles to the plate A. Parts of the central bar, C, are punched or cut out to form the tines, pins, or prongs F, which pro ject from the inner side of said bar. These prongs or tines are then passed through the end of the belt G, which is rested against the back of the plate, and then the said prongs are bent down on the back of the belt, whereby the belt is held Very securely onto the buckle. The belt can be passed around the central bar, C, to conceal the slots formed by punching out the parts for forming the prongs. The prongs have their bases transversely to the longitudinal axis of the bar C, so that the strain to which they are subjected will be in the direction of the width of the prongs,wh ere they are strongest.

The belt G is passed around the body, and the free end of the belt is passed under one iiange D, as shown at in, then over the central bar, C, and then under the other liange D, the part u of the belt resting onthe part o,and the inner edge of the flange D rest-ing against the part n. The pressure on the edges of the flanges keeps the buckle in place, and as the belt is passed over the bar G, and is not in line with the line of draft or strain, the buckle cannot become loose, and can only be loosened by lifting the edge s, whereby the belt is relieved from the pressure ofthe iianges.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The belt-buckle made as herein described and shown, and consisting of a plate provided SAML. BRETZFIELD.
