Application filed February 8', 1918, Serial No. 218,042. Renewed March 18, 1920. Serial No. 366,999.
To all whom it may concern: Be it known that I, WALTER M. NARBETT,
Richmond, in the county of ontra Costa and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Necktie-Clasps; and I do hereby declare the following to-be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which 1t appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to improvements in necktie clasps and has for one of its objects the provision of a device capable of being removably fastened to the shirt and to the side edges of a necktie to hold the tie centered on the. shirt and against wrinkling or creasing.
A further object of this inventlon 1S to provide a tie clasp which is so constructed as to render it capable of being so secured to the shirt and side edges of a tie or scarf as to hold the scarf against movement on the shirt and from wrinkling or creasing thus prolonging the life of the tie or scarf.
Another object of this invention is to provide a tie clasp equipped with means whereby it may be so secured to the shirt as to beheld against loss and having formed at each end a clasp which is adapted .to be secured to the side edges of a necktie or scarf to hold the same secured to the shirt.
A further object of this invention is to provide atie clasp of this character, which will be simple, practical and comparatively inexpensive in construction and one that can'be manufactured and sold at a low cost.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described and set forth in the claim hereto appended.
In the drawing:
' Figure 1 is a front elevation of my improved tie clasp as made in accordance with this invention and illustrating it in use.
Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view of the same.
medial portion enlarged as at 7 and 8 respectively and the side edges of each enlarged portion 7 and 8 have formed integrally therewith the laterally extending ears 9. The cars 9 of each enlarged portion are bent at right angles to the bar to provide pairs of pivoted apertured ears. The ears of the medial portion 8 are bent at right angles to the bar in a direction opposite to that of the ears 9 at the end portions 7 of the bar, the purpose of which will be hereinafter more fully described.
A clasp jaw 10 has a flat body and one end bent angularly to provide the clamping teeth 11. Each jaw is provided on its side edges intermediate the ends thereof with angularly extending ears 12 which ears are adapted to be located between the pairs of cars 9 of each enlarged portion. A pin 13 extends transversely through the ears of each enlarged portion and jawrespectively to pivot the respective jaw to the respective pairs of ears as illustrated in the drawings.
It will be readily apparent that in the use of the device the center clasp is secured to the front edge of the opening of a shirt front thus positioning the clasps at the ends of the bar in such a position as to be readily secured to the side edges of a necktie or scarf to hold the tie centered to the shirt vand against wrinkling or creasing.
Having thus described my invention what tie and at the center of the bar for engag- I claim is: v in a shirt. 10 A tie clasp including an elongated bar, in testimon whereof I afiix my signature ears formed integral with the bar, and jaws in presence 0 two witnesses.
