Patented May 20, I902, G. '0. TRAUB. BBIDLE FOB PAINT BRUSHES.

(Application filed July 27, 1901.)

(No Model.)




SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 700,263, dated May 20, 1902.

Application filed July 27, 1901. Serial No. 69,962. (No model.)

zen of the UnitedStates, residing at Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Bridle forPaint-Brushes, of which the following is a specification..

This invention is an improved bridle for paint-brushes, theobject being to provide a fabric bridle which can be quickly and easily attached to any ofthe paint-brushes now in use for the purpose of maintaining the brush in its proper shape and at the same time preventing paint coming-in contact with the hand of the user; and with these objects in view the invention consists in. the peculiar construction of the various parts hereinafter fullydescribed, and pointed out in the claims. In the drawings forming a part of this specification, Figure 1 is a perspective view illustrating one side of my improved bridle. Fig. 2 is a view illustrating the opposite side. Fig. 3 is a detail view of the blank or bridle, the fastening-cords being removed; and Fig. 4 is a detail sectional view showingthe position the underlapping strip occupies when the bridle is in place upon the brush.

Referring to the drawings, A indicates a brush-head,B the fibers, and O the handle.

My improved bridle consists of a, strip of canvas, asbestos, or any other suitable material D, the edges D of which are cut upon the bias in opposite directions, and eyelets D are inserted in the said bridle adjacent to the said biased edges, and two eyelets D are arranged adjacent to the upper edge about midway the length of the bridle. lapping strip E is attach'edto one end of the bridle and is adapted to extend across the opening between the ends of the strip when the said bridle is placed around the brushhead and fiber. v v

F indicates a wire lacing-cord, which is secured at one'pend in 'one of the lowermost eye lets and is then laced through the different eyelets, passed around a hook-staple G, back through the opposite upper eyelet, then to the upper eyelet through which it is already passed, and the end is then wound around the long member of the staple, and after the end has been so woundthe staple is driven tiallyas set forth.

An underfirmly into the '-brush hea d. A wire H is passed through the eyelets D the ends being twisted and securely fastened tothe brushhead by means 'ofa staplel.

This bridle will securely protect the hands from comingin contact with the brush-fibers, and therebygreatly increase the durability of the brush. Whenever the fibershave become Worn to aconsiderable extent," the bridle can be unlaced, moved up, relaced, and

secured, and by securing it as described all danger of the bridle working itself loose and slipping out to theend of the fibersis avoided.

Having thus fully described myinvention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is-

1. A bridle for brushes comprising a strip of fabric having oppositely-biased ends and eyelets arranged adjacent to the edges of the strip and eyelets arranged adjacent to the top of the strip at the center thereof, alacing wire or cordattached to one end of the bridle-strip and adapted to be passed through 'theeyelets for the purpose of drawing the {ends of the bridle-strip together, anda staple for fastening the opposite endofthe Wire to the brush head, and a wire passing through I the central eyelets and a staple forsecuring the said wire to the brush-head, substan- 2.. A bridle for brushes comprising a strip having oppositely-biased ends and provided with eyelets adjacent to 1 the said ends and also eyelets adjacent to thejupper edge of the strip at the center of the same, an underlapping strip attached to one end of the bridle- 1 strip,a lacing-wire attached at one end to one end of the bridle-strip, said lacing-wire being adapted to be passed through the end eyelets for the purpose of drawing the ends of the bridle-strip together, a staple for securing theopposite endof said lacing-Wire, and a wire adapted to be passed through the cen* tralfleyelets, the ends of the wire being secured to theb'rush-head by means of a staple, substantially as shown and described;
