More particularly, the invention relates to a snake bite preventing boot.

The principal object of the invention is to provide a new and improved snake bite preventing boot of light weight and simple structure, which is inexpensive in manufacture and is put on and taken off with facility and rapidity.

An object of the invention is to provide a snake bite preventing boot which is efficient, effective and reliable in operation.

In order that the invention may be readily carried into effect, it will now be described with reference to the accompanying drawing, wherein:

FIG. 1 is a front view of an embodiment of the snake bite preventing device of the invention;

FIG. 2 is a side view of the embodiment of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a back view of part of the embodiment of FIG. 1; and

FIG. 4 is a side view of the embodiment of FIGS. 1, 2 and 3, including the foot protecting material.

In the FIGS., the same components are identified by the same reference numerals.

The snake bite preventing device of the invention comprises thigh protecting material 1 of aluminum, plastic, or the like, adapted to be removably affixed to the thigh 2 of a wearer, shown in broken lines in FIG. 2. The thigh protecting material 1 is of substantially hollow cylindrical configuration separated along a lateral line 3 (FIG. 3). Cooperating fastening means 4 and 5 (FIG. 3) of any suitable type are affixed to the thigh protecting material 1 on both sides of the line 3. The fastening means 4 and 5 fasten the thigh protecting material 1 around the thigh 2 of the wearer.

Leg protecting material 6 of aluminum, plastic, or the like, is adapted to be removably affixed to the leg 7 of the wearer, shown in broken lines in FIG. 2. The leg protecting material 6 is of substantially hollow cylindrical configuration separated along a lateral line 8 (FIG. 3). Cooperating fastening means 9 and 11 (FIG. 3) of any suitable type are affixed to the leg protecting material on both sides of the line 8. The fastening means 9 and 11 fasten the leg protecting material 6 around the leg 7 of the wearer.

Flexible material 12 is affixed to and extends between the thigh protecting material 1 and the leg protecting material 6. The flexible material 12 comprises rubber, or the like, and preferably comprises an accordion folded sleeve of rubber.

As shown in FIG. 4, foot protecting material 13 and 14 of aluminum, plastic, or the like, is adapted to be removably affixed to the foot 15 of the wearer, shown in broken lines in FIG. 2. The foot protecting material l3, 14 comprises two substantially hollow semi-cylindrical halves l3 and 14, of which only the half 14 is shown in FIG. 4. The halves l3 and 14 may be hinged together at one corresponding edge. Cooperating fastening means 16 of any suitable type is affixed to the halves l3 and 14 for fastening said halves in position around the foot 15 of the wearer.

The foot protecting halves I3 and 14 are preferably molded to the shape of the foot 15 or shoe of the wearer. The thigh protecting material 1 and the leg protecting material 6 may be molded to the shape of the thigh and leg, respectively, of the wearer.

The fastening means 4, 5, 9, l 1 and 16 may comprise snaps, straps, buckles, hooks, ties, or the like, of any suitable type. A boot loop 17 (FIG. 2) may be affixed to the thigh protecting material 1.
