I Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 5, 1905.
Application filed May 24,1905. Serial No. 262,082.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE ADoLPH STEINER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Salt Lake City, in the county of Salt Lake and State of Utah, have invented new and useful Improvements in Aprons, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to aprons, and has especial reference to means for fastening the apron on the body of the wearer.
The invention consists in the formation on the end of each apron-tape of a cross-head, made of the tape material and integrally with the tape, to engage apertures in the upper corners of the apron. The tape is inserted in these apertures and drawn through until the cross-head is drawn up to the aperture; In washing heavy aprons, such as are worn by butchers and mechanics, the tape should be removed from the apron on account of its liability to become tangled and knotted, the tapes being washed separately, so it is important that means for attaching the tape to the apron should permit of ready attachment to and detachment from the apron. This invention has that end in view.
In ironing the tape the cross-head lies flat in line with the tape itself, and when the apron is put on this cross-head, being soft and more or less flexible, lies flat against the body.
The accompanying drawings illustrate the invention, in which Figure 1 is an edge view of the cross-head on a fragment of the apron-tape. Fig. 2 is an edge view of the same ironed down flat. Fig. 3 is a plan of the cross-head. Fig. 4 is a front view of the upper corner of an apron, and Fig. 5 is a rear view of an upper corner of an apron with my device attached.
Like letters of reference denote corresponding parts in the several views.
The letter a designates afiat cord or tape used in tying the apron to the body of t wearer.
b is a cross-head formed of the tape material by making a plurality of folds, then a one-half fold b and a cross-fold b to bring the tape toward one side of the head I). These folds are stitched tightly together.
An aperture is formed at each upper corner of the apron, in which an eyelet c is inserted. Through this eyelet the tape is passed, so as to bring the cross-head I) to the rear side of the apron, where it will lie flat against the body when the apron is tied on.
Having now described the invention, what I claim, and desire to secure, is d An apron-string formed of tape and having a flat cross-head integrally formed at one end thereof by folding said tape a plurality of times upon itself and at the middle part of its folds to cross fold said tape so that both edges thereof will be at the same side of said cross-head, said folds being stitched together and adapted to engage the string-aperture in an apron, as herein set forth.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two subscribing Witnesses.
