HERMAN SACKS, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HERMAN Saoxs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Im n'ovements in Sleeve-Protectors, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates in general to protectors for sleeves, and more particularly to an adjustable protector.
In the use of protectors to prevent the soiling of sleeves it is desirable that they should fit closely around the forearm of the wearer. It is, therefore, necessary that the protectors should vary in size according to the various sizes of the forearms of the users, which requires that protectors should be made in a large number of different sizes.
The primary object of my invention is to provide a sleeve protector which may be readily adjusted in size to fit different sizes of forcarnisathereby rendering it possible to use the same protector on different sizes of forearms. 1
A further object of my invention is to provide a sleeve protector which will be simple in construction, inexpensive in manufacture, and etlieient in use.
My invention will be more fully described hereinafter with reference to the accompanying drawings in which the same is illustrated as embodied in several convenient and practical forms, and in which- Figure-1 is a perspective view; Fig. 2 a transverse sectional v1ew of the form of my protector shown in Fig. 1'; Fig. 3 a perspective view of a modified form; Fig. 4 a sectional view on line 4, 4 Fig. 3 ofthe modified form of my invention; Fig. 5 a lan view; and Fig. 6 an end elevation of stil an-.
other embodiment of my invention.
Similar reference characters are used to designate similar parts on the several sheets of drawings.
Referring more particularl to Figs. 1 and reference character A in icates a sleeve protector comprisin a sheet of flexible material of any suitable character, which is adapted to be wrapped around the forearm of a wearer with its edges overlapped.
l3, B designate straps of suitable flexible material, each of which is secured at one end to the edge of the underlying portion of the protector. Each. of the str. s B asses through and is adjustably he] by a evice Specification of Letters Patent. Application filed August 11, 1008. Serial No. 441,962.
' Patented June 22, 1909 C secured to the overla ping portion of the protector adjacent its Gt ge.
0 indicates one member of a fastening device which is adapted to removably engage the other member a of the fastening device, the latter member being rigidly secured to the flexible material of the protector A at a distance from the underl ing ed e equal to the length of the strap. l vhile Ihave shown two straps B, yet it is obvious that a single strap and cooperating parts might be used, or that more than two of such straps mightbe employed.
The manner of using the .form of my protect-m above describe is as follows: Each of the straps B is adjusted relatively to the holding device or slide C so that when the members 0 and a of the fastening device are engaged the protectorwill have the desired size. The size of the protector may be readily varied by adjustin r the position of each of the straps relatively to the holding device or slide C.
In Figs. 3 and 4 I have shown a modified form of my invention in which 13, B indicate straps secured at their ends to the underlying portion D of the protector A.
A slide C adjustably engages each of the straps B having thereon one member 0 of a two-part fastening device, the other member a of the fastenmg device being secured adjacent the edge of the overlapping portion of the protector. In order to vary the size of this form of my invention it is merely necessary to adjust the slide C relatively to the strap which itv engages, thereb varying the position of the member 0 of t 1e twopart fastening device relatively to the edge of the underlying portion of the protector.
In Figs. 5 and 6 I have illustrated still another form of my invention in which. straps B", B are secured at their ends to the underlying portion D of the protector, which latter is made separate from the main portion A of the protector. Each of the straps B passes through and adjustably engages a holdin device or slide C secured adjacent one edge of the protector. Supported upon the end of each stra B is one member 0 of a two-part fastening device the other member thereof being secured adjacent the o osite edge of the protector from that to w nch the slides C are secured. In the use of this form of my invention the straps B may be adjusted relatively to the *one edge of the protector, thereby varying the size of the protector to fit various sizes of forearms.
While I have illustrated my invent on as embodied in three different forms, yet it will be evident that it. may be embodied in other forms and that my invention is not limited in scope to the several embodiments thereof which I have illustrated and described.
1. In a sleeve protector, the combination with a piece of flexible material adapted to be wrapped around the forearm of the wearer of a transverse strap overlying and secured to the underlying protector, a fastening mem or carried by said strap, a cooperating fastening member secured to the protector, and meansadjustably engaging the strap for varying the position of the fastening member thereon relatively to an edge of the protector.
2. In a sleeve protector, the combination with a piece of flexible material adapted to be wra ped around the forearm of the wearer, o transverse straps overlying and secured to the underlying portion of the protector, fastening members carried by the respective straps, coacting fastening members secured to the protector, and means adortion of the justably enga the posltionso the fastening members thereon relative] to the edges of the protector.
3. In a s eeve rotector, the combination with a sheet of exible material adapted to be wrapped around the arm of the'wearer and have its edges overlap thereon, of transverse straps 1 ing adjacent the outer surface of the under ying portion of the protector and attached thereto, a fastenin member carried by each strap, a member in sliding engagement with each strap for adjusting the position of the fastening member thereon relatively to one of the edges of the protector, and cooperating fastening members secured at a distance from the other edge of the protector corresponding to the length of the strap.
4. In a sleeve protector, the combination with a flexible piece of material adapted to be wrapped around the forearm of the co wearer with its edges overlapped thereon, of a strap secured at one end to the underlying edge of the protector, means for adjustably engaging the strap intermediate of its ends with the overlying portion of the 0., protector, and a two-part separable fastening device, one partcarried by the free end of said strap and the other partsecured to the protector at a distance from the underlying edge corresponding to the length of the strap.
In testimony whereof I have subscribed my name.
