AUGUST NOLTE, OF DUNDEE, ILLINOIS.
FASTENING FOR GLOVES OR SHOES.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 357,287, dated February 8, 185.7.
I 7 Application filed May 13, 1886. Serial No. 202,060. (No mode To all whom. it may concern:
' Be it known that 1, AUGUST NoL'rn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Dundee, in the county of Kane and State of Illinois,
have invented certain new and useful imto make and use the same.
. tached to the flap of a glove or shoe.
My invention relates to fasteners for boots and shoes, gloves, and like articles, and has for its object to provide against the fastener slipping while the lever is being locked to its place, and also to guard against the end of the lever being accidentally unlocked by catching in weeds or other things; and to such ends the invention consists in the construction and combination of parts, hereinafter particularly described and claimed.
Figure 1 is a side view of the fastener before it is applied to a glove or shoe. Fig. 2
is a perspective of the slide to which the lever is pivoted. Fig. 3 is a side view of the fastener and perforated plate used in connection therewith. Fig. 4 is a perspective ofthe perforated plate, represented as connected at one end to a part of a shoe or glove. Fig. 5 is aside view of amodified'form of lever, showing the perforated'plate shielding its free end.
Fig. 6 is a side view of the device detached from shoe.
In the drawings, the letter A designates a.
plate having prongs B, by which it may be at- 7 From this plate rises a bar, 0, the under face of which is formed with serrations or notches a. A slide, D, passes around this raised bar, and to its upper end is fnlcrumed a cam or eccentric lever, E, the fnlcrumed end of the lever fitting between the two upright sides or ears of the slide. So far, with the exception of the serrations of the raised bar, the fastening is similar to that shown and described in my patent of March 9, 1886, No. 337 ,7 83. On the innerface of the bottom' of the slide there is formed, either by stamping the metal or otherwise, a projection or lug, 'b, which engages with the serrations-of-the raised bar, so as to prevent the slide from slipping while the eccentric-lever is being pressed down into a locked position, or after it has been locked.
The plate F, usually employed on rubber shoes, is under my invention struck up or otherwise formed with a groove, 0, extending lengthwise of the plate, and also with concave or downwardly-turned flanges d, which latter give strength and rigidity to the plate. The groove is deep enough to bring the free end of the lever below its top edges, as shown, thereby shielding and guarding the end so that it cannot catch in weeds or any obstruction that would accidentally lift it and unloose the lever. -It is also preferably of such depth that the whole face or edges of the lever from its free end back as far as the slide will be beneath the top edges of the groove, thus more effectually guarding against anything passing under the lever and accidentally unlocking it.
The openings 0 in the plate F,through which the lever passes, are made oblong, so that the plate can be made narrower than otherwise. In thus reducing the width of the plate there is less interference with the movement or play of the foot in walking and stooping or climbing. The instep is a very tender part of the foot, and the less metal there is to press on it the less pain there is apt to be caused, and hence the desirability of reducingthe width of the plate F. By making the holes 6 oblong the desired result can be effected, and a good bearing of the eccentric or cam head of I the lever on the raised bar is afforded.
The form of plate F described can be used with the eccentric lever shown in Fig. 5, where the raised bar is omitted and the lever fnlcrumed to upright side pieces or cars connected directly to plate A.
The upright sides or cars of the slide D are formed with notches f, which, when the cocentric-lever is turned down into a locking position, are brought into engagement with the edge of the metal at the end of the hole through which the lever passes. This further locks the slide to the plate or bar and makes the fastening more secure.
If preferred,the plate F can be omitted and the lever and its supporting plate be used without it by passing the lever through a buttonhole.
The device is simple in construction, cheap to produce, and efficient in producing the results assigned to the several parts in the description pertaining to each.
Having thus described my invention and set forth its merits, what I claim is 1. A fastening eomprisinga base having an elevated bar formed with serrations 011 its under side, aslide to move along said bar,fornied with a projection to engage with the serrations of the elevated bar,and a ca1n-lever fulcrumed to said slide and adapted to be locked at various points of adj ustment along said bar, substantially as described.
2, A fastening composed of a plate formed with a groove, 0, lengthwise thereof, as shown, and having openings for the passage of a lever, in combination with a locking lever adapted to pass through said openings, substantially as described, the free end of said lever, when in a locked position, lying within said groove below the top edges thereof, so as to be shielded and prevented from being accidentally unlocked, substantially as described.
3. The fastening composed ofa plate formed with agroove lengthwise thereof, as shown, and having oblong openings therein extending lengthwise of the plate, in combination with a pivoted cam-lever to pass through said openings, the free end of said lever lying within the groove below the top edges thereof when in alocked position, substantially as described.
4. The fastening composed of the plate formed with a groove lengthwise thereof and having oblong openings therein, in combination with a base-plate having a raised bar formed with serrations, a slide to move along said bar formed with a projection to engage said serrations, anda cam-lever fulcruined to said slide and adapted to pass through said openings and lie within said groove and bear against said raised bar, substantially as described.
5. The fastener composed of the plate F, formed with groove 0 and openings 6, in combination with the baseplate formed with raised bar 0, having serrations a, slide D, formed with projection 31 and notchesf, and cam-lever E, fnlcrumed to slide D, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
