NAME-PLATE AND FASTENER FOR RUBBEBS.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 3, 1908.
Application filed December 10, 1907. Serial No. &05,901.
T 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, SADIE N. FLEOK, a citi zen of the United States, and a resident of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in NamePlates and Fasteners for Rubbers, of which the following is a specification.
The object of my invention is to provide an article of this class which will enable the two rubbers of a pair to be secured together when not in use, and also to be readily identified. This object is accomplished by my invention, as will appear below.
For a more particular description of my invention reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof, in which;
Figure 1 is a side elevation of a portion of a rubber with my improvement attached. Fig. 2 is a similar view of the other rubber. Fig. 3 is a sectional view showing how the rubbers are secured together as above set forth. Fig. at is a plan view of the rubbers when held together.
Throughout the various drawings similar reference characters designate similar parts.
The rubbers 1 and 2 have near their upper edges and on the right of the right hand rubber and the left of the left hand rubber, that is, outside of each of the rubbers, two fasteners, 3 and f respectively, which fasteners may be of any suitable form, but are preferably the ordinary snap button such as is used on a glove, and which unite as shown in Fig. 3, the female member being part 3 and the male member part f, or this may be reversed, if desired. Each of these members is mounted on a rubber base 5, on which and above the fasteners, letters 6 may be attached to indicate the owner of the rubbers.
The fasteners 3 and 4 are preferably vulcanized to the rubber base 5, which, in turn, are preferably fixed to the rubbers 1 and 2 respectively, either by cement or vulcanizing. The letters 6 may also be either cemented or vulcanized in place; it is immaterial which provided they are properly held in place.
It is also important that the rubber base 5 should not be too stiff as it should be flexible so that the letters 6 may be read without separating the rubbers or detaching the fasten ers 3 and a.
The fasteners 3 and at are placed on the outside of the rubbers so as not to interfere with the movements of the wearer when in use. Except for this it would be preferable to place them on the inside as the rubbers must always be shifted from one side to the other after being detached and before being put on so as to avoid getting the wrong rubber on the foot of the wearer.
While I have shown and described one embodiment of my invention, it is obvious that it is not restricted thereto as it is broad enough to cover all forms which come within the scope of the annexed claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:
The combination of a pair of rubbers with a name plate and fastener consisting of rubber bases with fasteners thereon aflixed to each of said pair of rubbers.
In witness whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
