DISPLAY-CARD FOR SUSPENDERS,
sPBcIPIcAa'IoN forming part of Letters PatentNo. 376,997,,dated Januar 24, 188:8
Application filed December 1, 1887. Serial No. 256,99. (No model.)
To all whom, it may concern.-
Be it known that LOALVIN VOORHIS, of the city and State of New York, have invented an Improvement in Display-Cards for Suspend 5 ers, of which the following is a specification. Heretofore suspenders I have been spread upon cards and connected thereto by sewing, in order that the articles may beheld in a convenient position for inspection; but they can- Io not be easily removed or replaced, because the threads have to be first broken to allow for removal, and then the suspenders have to be reattached by sewing.
-My improvement relates to a display-card 15 for suspenders, in which there is an incision through which the suspenders are inserted, so that the back loops or Suspender-ends can be extended in one direction andyhooked over V-shaped points, and then the suspenders 2O wrapped around the card, and the front ends standing in the other direction are hooked upon V-shaped hooks at one end of the card.
This allows for the suspenders being easily de- I tached, or partially so, for inspection, and for the same being easily connectedto the card and held in the proper position and condition for exhibition and sale.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of the card with suspenders thereon, and Fig. 2

a long incision, and at ff andy g there are incisions in the card, forming v -shaped points The suspenderends b b and straps a are passed through the incision e,'and the v loops orbutton-holes on the suspendenends b 0 penders drawn back sufficiently to tighten v the button holes or loops over the hook'sf, and thenthe suspenders are wound around theeard to bring the ends 0 c to the hooks 9, over which 45 the button holes or loops are passed, andthe suspenders are therebyheld in place. I A I The size of the displaycard is such as to bev adapted to the ordinary length of suspenders. For long suspenders the card maybe of greater 5o length, or the suspenders may be shortened by drawing the straps a through the buokles k,
The suspenders can be easily disconnected I from the display-cardor replaced thereon.
