WILLIAM GEISENHEIMER, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNOR TO s. SOHEUER & SONS, on NEW YORK, N. Y., A FIRM.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 698,005, dated April 22, 1902.
Application filed January 9, 1902. Serial No. 88,949. (No model.)
To (11 whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, WILLIAM GEISENHEI- MER, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York city, county and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Apparel-Belts, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an apparel-belt of novel construction, and more particularly to novel means for securing the fasteningtongues to the body of the belt.
In the accompanying drawings, Figurel is a front view of my improved apparel-belt. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section on line 2 2, Fig. l; and Fig. 3, a detail of one of the slotted ends of the belt.
The letter A represents the body of the belt, made of suitable material and configuration. At or near each end the belt is provided with a series of parallel transverse slots a, separated by a series of transverse straps or bridge-pieces a, which are integral with the body of the belt. Through these slots and straps is interwoven a tongue Z), which is provided at its rear end with a head or enlargement Z) to prevent withdrawal under tension.
At its frontthe tongues project beyond the foremost straps a and may be connected with each other by a suitable fastener. The drawings show one of the tongues to be provided with a buckle 0, while the other tongue is perforated, as at 11*, to engage said buckle.
It will be seen that the tongues are connected to the body of the belt without any stitching and that they may be readily withdrawn and replaced in case the buckle is to be changed or if the size of the belt is to be altered.
What I claim is- An apparel-belt provided at each end with a series of parallel transverse slots, remow able tongues interwoven through said slots and having enlarged rear ends, and means for connecting the front ends of the tongues, substantially as specified.
Signed by me at New York city, county and State of New York, this 8th day of J annary,
WILLIAM GEISENHEIMER. Witnesses:
