Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 11, 1907.

Application filed November 2, 1905. Serial No- 285,610.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, MYER Moss, a subject of the King of Great Britain, residing at Lunenburg, county of Lunenburg, Province of Nova Scotia, Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Wrist- Protectors; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

My invention relates to wrist protectors,

articularly adapted to protect the wrists of ishermen from abrasion by the oil skins usually Worn by this class of people; the object of my invention is to provide a wrist protector which can readily be placed on the wrist and readily removed and which will not present any point of attachment for the oil skin worn by the user of the protector; a further object is to provide a simple means for joining the ends of the protectors; and my invention consists of the construction, combination and arrangement of parts as herein illustrated, described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings forming part of this application, I have illustrated one form of embodiment of my invention, in which drawings similar reference characters designate corresponding parts, and in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the wrist protector in closed position; Fig. 2. is a plan view of the meeting ends of the wrist protector, showing the locking means therefor; Fig. 3 is a section on line 3-3-of Fig. 2; Fig. 4 is a plan view of the meeting ends of the wrist protector showing the pivotal connection thereof, the meeting ends of the protector being partly broken away to show the construction; and, Fig. 5 is a transverse section through the protector.

Referring to the drawings: 1 designates a pair of semi-circular members preferably of metal, provided with flanges 2, which flanges are turned so as to leave the edges circular as best shown in Fig. 5. This construction provides a smooth edge at each endof the device and the wrist of the wearer is thereby protected from injury due to the contact of the edge of the protector with the flesh of the wearer. On one side the meeting ends of the members 1 are provided with integral ears 3, through which is projected a pivot 4, so that the members 1 may be readily swung apart.

For the purpose of locking the members 1 together one of said members is provided with a tongue 5 having a bent end 6, of resilient material, preferably metal of the same character as that which forms the members 1. Disposed on the other member adjacent its end and connecting the flanges 2 is a-transverse bar 7 provided with a flange 8 on its under side.

To look the wrist protector the tongue 5 is inserted beneath the bar 7 and the ends of the members 1 brought together, so that the bent end 6 of the tongue 5 engages against the flange 8 of the bar 7 where it is held by the tension of the resilient member 6. To unlock the protector, the resilient bent end 6 of the tongue 5 is pressed downward out of engagement with the flange 8, and the members 1 actuated apart on their pivot.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

In a wrist protector, a pair of semi-cylindrical members provided with turned flanges at their ends, means pivoting said members together at one side, a bar carried by the opposite side of one of said members and provided with a flange,'and a tongue integral with the opposite side of the other member and provided with a resilient bent end adapted to engage against said flange.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two witnesses.

MYER MOSS. Witnesses:
