JOf/A/ STU/v52 MECHANICS MAGNETIC GLOVE This invention relates to magnetic devices for mechanics and the like.
It is therefore the main purpose of the present invention to provide a flexible magnetic glove which will permit nuts, bolts or tools of ferrous materials to be held securely while being started in use particularly in close quarters, and wherein accordingly they are subject to being easily dropped from a person's grip.
Another object of the present invention is to provide a magnetic glove which incorporates permanent magnet discs secured within the interior of the glove, particularly on a rear side of the palm, and the rear side of the glove fabric that forms a front side of the fingers thereof.
A further object of the present invention is to provide a glove of the type described and which is also adaptable to hold various types of wrenches without permitting them to be accidentally dropped away from the glove in case a grasp of them is temporarily or accidentally released.
Other objects of the present invention are to provide a mechanics magnetized glove which is simple in design, inexpensive to manufacture, rugged in construction and easy to use and effective in operation.
These and other objects will become readily evident upon study of the following specification together with the accompanying drawing wherein:
HO. 1 is a plan view of the present invention showing the palm portion facing up; and
FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line 2-2 of FIG. 1.
According to this invention, the glove including an inner side 11 and an outer side 12, has along the fingers and palm on the interior, a plurality of spaced-apart permanent magnets 13 secured on the interior so that the magnetic flux field will extend its influence towards the palm and inside surface of the fingers.
As shown in FIG. 2 of the drawing, the plurality of permanent magnet discs 13 are retained by another layer of material 14 stitched to the inner side 11.
It shall be noted that any method of securing the magnets 13 may be used, such as cementing or moulding to the interior of the glove 10.
As shown in FIG. 2 of the drawing, it is to be noted that each of the magnets may be individually enclosed within its own compartment which are formed by stitches which enjoin the outer and inner fabrics between the magnets, as shown.
It shall further be noted that the magnets 13 preferably should be secured in a relationship that is such that the neighboring magnet 13 poles are of the same polarity so that the magnetic flux field is not lost between the adjacent magnets 13.
In use, the glove 10 is placed upon the hand of the mechanic so that when grasping nuts, bolts or wrenches that the magnets 13 will attract and hold the above-mentioned fasteners or wrenches in order that the mechanic may effectively use them when working in close quarters without fumbling and dropping the aforesaid devices.
What I now claim is:
l. A mechanics magnetic glove, comprising in combination, a hand receiving part, a wrist part, four finger stalls, a thumb stall, a liner element extending over the inner surface of the palm side of the hand receiving part and the palm sides of said finger and thumb stalls, stitching securing said liner element to said hand receiving part, said stitching including a series of rectilinear stitches which form a series of pockets, a plurality of small permanent magnetic discs being located between said liner element and said glove and being held in said pockets.
