IMPROVED SHOE-STRING FASTEER.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 66,806, dated July 31, 1866.
To atl whom 'it may concern:
Be it known that I, ELIPHALETS. SCRIP-l TURE, of Williamsburg, Kings county, and State of N ew York, have invented a new and Improved Shoe String Fastener; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable others skilled in the art to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this speciication, in Which- Figure 1 represents a side elevation of this invention when attached to a shoe. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section of the same in a larger scale than the previous figure.
Similar letters of reference indicate like parts.
This invention relates t0 a little spring-catch which, when attached to a shoe or gaiter-boot, serves to hold securely the surplus ends of the lacing-strings after the same have been drawn up snugly.
My spring-catch consists of three parts, viz: an elliptical tilting spring-button, A, a corrugated spring-washer, B, and a rivet, C. The two springs are stamped or otherwise produced out of hard-rolled sheet-brass or other suitable material, and they are connected to each otherV and to the shoe by the rivet C, as shown in the drawings, the spring-button A Y being on the outside and the spring-washer B on the inside of the shoe..
After the rivet is secured the endsof the spring-Washer B project just far enough to give an easy entrance to the string under the ends of the spring-button A and past the ends of the spring B, where they nd relief by pressing the leather into the corrugations of said spring. The spring-button A is thereby permitted to fall snugly against the outer surface of the leather after the string has been introduced, and the danger of its catching in the dress of the person wearing the shoeis avoided.
In passing the string under one end of the spring-button A it tilts, causing the opposite end to press snugger against the leather, and
by this tilting action the operation of introducing the string is still further facilitated.
What I claim as new, and Adesire to secure by Letters Patent, is
A Shoestring fastener composed of a tilting spring-button, A, corrugated spring-washer B, and rivet C, substantially as and for the purpose set forth. Y
