PATENTED DEC'. 20, y1904.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 777,676, dated December 20, 1904.

Application filed May '7, 1904:. Serial No. 206,819.

To all whom t may concern.-

Be it known that I, FERDINAND J AEGEE, a citizen oi' the United States, residing at New York city, Brooklyn, county of Kings, State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Head-Rests for Hats, or' which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to ahead -rest for hats which prevents objectionable pressure upon the forehead, insures free ventilation, and permits of ready adjustment.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a bottom view of my improved head-rest, showing it applied to a hat; Fig. EZ, an enlarged longitudinal section thereofl on line 2 2, Fig. l, and Fig'. 3 a perspective view of a hat containing the head-rest.

The letters c a represent a pair oi' opposing U-shaped spring-clasps adapted to be projected over the sweat-band A of a hat A and having ilanged lower ends a. The inner shank of each clasp a is provided with a series oi' transverse slots a', through which is drawn atape b, which is preferably continuous. This tape extends from the toprnost slot of one clasp down to the lowermost slot of said clasp, then to the lowermost slot 0I' the other clasp, then to the topmost slot of said other clasp, and then back to the toprnost slot of the first clasp. In this way there are formed an upper and a lower run extending' across the crown oi' the hat. These runs are encircled at the center by a ring c, that connects the runs and draws one against the other.

The lower run oi the tape engages the head of the wearer and holds the hat olf the forehead. By slacking the upper run and corre* spondingly tightening' the lower run (full lines, Fig. 2) the distance to which the hat may be drawn down is decreased. On the other hand, by tightening' the upper run and correspondingly slacking the lower run (dotted lines, Fig. 2) the distance to which the hat may be drawn down is increased. In this way the head-rest may be readily adjusted to suit the convenience oi' the wearer, and any objectionable pressure is avoided.

What I claim is* A l. A head-rest for hats composed of a pair of clasps, a connecting-tape having upper and lower runs, and a ring encircling the runs, substantially as specified.

2. A head-rest for hats composed of a pair of slotted U-shaped clasps adapted to straddle the sweat-band, a tape drawn through the clasp-slots and having upper and lower runs,

and a ring encircling the runs, substantially as specified.

Signed by me at New York city, (Manhattan,) New York, this 6th day or' May, 1904.
