To all whom "it may concern:
Be itknownthat we, ABRAHAM RAINESS, a subject of the Czar of Russia, and BER- NARD RAINESS, a citizen of the United States,
both residents of New York, in the county andState of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Devices for Securing Scarf-Pins, of which the following is a specification. 1
This invention has' reference to a novel device for securing scarf pins or scarf pin protectors.
It pertains particularly to that type of scarf pin protectors which are intended to protect costly pins so that same can not be 0st or stolen. I v
It is the special object ofthis invention to produce an entirely reliable scarf pin protector which is of simple construction, but firmly grips the pin, so that same cannot be removed by anyone except the wearer without tearin the scarf, all as will be more fully described further-down in connection with the accompanying drawings in which: I
Figure 1 represents in elevationa scarf pin with a protector secured thereto which emodies in desirable-form the mentsf Fig.2 illustrates in side elevation on an enlarged scale the'devicepartlyin section. Fig. 3 shows on an enlarged scale the device in longitudinal section with the pin in full lines at a right angle to Fig. 2, and Fig. 4'
'is a sectional top plan view on line 44 of F1 2. v y
inn'lar characters of referencedenote like parts in all the figures. In the, drawing (1 represents the outer shell or case which is usually of tubular shape. The top ortion a is madeslantin as is shown in igs. 2 and 3. Asmall circu ar top opening a is rovided which is just lar e enough to al ow the pinv to through. I At .the bottom the she is open at full width until the. var1ous parts composing e inner art consists of a conical top portion 12 w 'ch forms-the frustum of a cone. Below the conical part b extends intoa tubular portion I) having an opening which is wide enough to 7 allow the pin a free passage through same. A circular s ring 0 surrounds, the tubular ortion'b o' the inner part andv a disk d'is oosely placed thereon. The diskis preferably somewhat reduced at its lower ortion as shown in Figs. 2 and 3. At the ottom 'a square opening I) circle so what .bent inwardly as present impr0ve-' Bass free y.
end of the portion 1) of the inner part a ball 6 is permanently secured. v I I The conical portion b of theinner part has through same. in the square opening there are located two pin securing devlces f and f These pin securing devices have each a straight front and back and an annular' groove f in'the middle portion, see Fig. 4. Each section of the groove forms part of a as to conform. in shape to the exterior sides of the pin p. The two pin securing devices f andf resemble in shape somewhat an extended sheave. They are extending somewhat beyond the frustum of the cone of the inner part as shown in Figs. 3 and 4. When the inner part with the securing devices,-the circular spring, the disk d, an the extending horizontally ball 6, has been inserted into the shell a, the v bottom end portion a of the shell a is someshown in Figs. 2 and 3 whereby the whole device .is completed. The circular spring 0' keeps the device normallylin the position indicated in Figs. 2 and 3, that is, the top surface of the frustum b of a conerests .a ainst the inner surface of the top of the she I a and the two pin securing devices f and f bear against the inner wall of the conical top portion a. of the shell (1 while the centralopening between the securing devices f, f is not large enough to pass the pin through. In-order to insert the pin, it is necessary to pull the inner part somewhat down in'the shell by means of the ball e whereby the spring 0 is depressed. At the same time the two securing devices have occupied a position in a lower horizontal plane than before and asthe part it of theshell a is conical, getting wider at its lower-portion, the securing devices may be easily forced apart by the pin p3, When the pin is in the desired position, the fingers are simply released from the ball e which allows the'spring' c to force the'inner part whereby the pinis tightly the two securing sheaves wh of same bear against the inner shell as shown in Figs. 3 and 4.
In practice the-pin is .first forced through' the scarf so that'it is free in therear of same. Now the protector is a plied by first pulling the ball 0 somewhatv own-and sliding the protector onto the pin; upon release the pin 1s tightly held.and its pomted end is forced into the rear portionof the scarf. To reripped between ile the outer ends walls of the up within the shell lease the pin its pointed portion is removed a square opening which extends horizontally from the rear portion of the scarf, the ball 0 therethrough,- two sheave shaped grippin pulled downward, and the protector removed members within said square opening, an 15 after which operation the pin is taken out of means for pressing the gripping. members 5 the scarf in the usual manner. p 1 against the pin or-releasing same therefrom. Having thus described our invention we Signed at New York, in the county and claim as new and desire to secure by Letters State of New York this 8th day of June 1907.
