SPIKE FOR GOLF SHOES Original Filed March 1, 1935 INVENTOR FEEDER/C E. HOWAQD ATTORNEY Patented Oct. 5, 1937 UNITED STATES eArEr OFFICE f 2,095,095 SPIKE FOR GOLF: SHOES Original application March 1, 1935, Serial No.

Divided and this application September 26, 1936, Serial No. 102,695

6 Claims.

This invention relates to extension spikes and more particularly to replaceable spikes of this character, particularly adapted for use on sport shoes especially as used by golfers.

This invention is a division of an application filed in the names of the present inventor and Clarence W. Fuller, on March 1, 1935 and bearing Serial Number 8,828. Upon requirement of the Patent Oifice for division, the subject matter of the present application was withdrawn from said application for division, and since the instant applicant was the inventor of only said subject matter, his name was also withdrawn from said application. 1

The present invention seeks to provide improved and readily replaceable extension spikes of the character indicated.

A further contemplated feature of the invention resides in the provision of an extensible spikecarrying member'which is adapted to be adjustably positioned in relation to a fixed member permanently secured to the shoe.

Hence, the invention broadly deals with extension spikes which may be removably secured to a shoe and also with extension spikes removably secured to a metallic member which is non-removably fixed to a shoe.

A further feature of the invention resides in the provision of caulks or spikes which are removably secured to extension members.

With the above features of the invention in mind, the accompanying drawing, read in connection with the following detailed specification, comprises a preferred disclosure as at present contemplated.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a bottom plan view of a golf shoe provided with extension spikes as contemplated in this invention.

Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional view of an extension spike constructed in accordance with the invention.

Fig. 3 is a bottom plan View thereof.

Figs. 4 and 5 are respectively similar views of an alternate form of extension spike.

Figs. 6 and '7 are each sectional views of still other forms of the invention.

Referring to the drawing, and with particular reference to Figures 2 and 3, the sole IU of the shoe is shown as being provided, in spaced relation to its edge II, with a member I2 having a hollow shank 13 which passes through the sole and is permanently secured thereto as by means of the flange l4. The member I2 and its shank l3 are preferably formed with a threaded seat 15.

The above-described member l2 now forms the means by which an extension spike may be secured to the sole. This spike comprises a plate l6 adapted to be superimposed over themember 52 and may have an integral calk or spike formed on its end, or, as shown, may be provided with a removable calk l'l which may be outwardly directed, as illustrated, at right angles to the plane of the sole, or inwardly directed.

In order to insure that the plate I6 is firmly seated on the sole, this plate may be provided with a hollow I8 to accommodate the member l2; and to guard against inadvertent rotational displacement, said plate may be formed with one or more teats such as shown at 19 to engage and bite into the bottom of the sole. Also, as shown, a spur 20 carried by the plate may be arranged to press into the edge of said sole;

For the purpose of securing the plate Hi to ie sole, means such as the calk 2| having a 2'0 threaded portion 22, may be passed through an opening in said plate so said threaded portion 22 may be engaged in the screw seat l5. Should the comparative sizes of the calk 2| and the mentioned opening require it, a washer 23 may be in- '25 terposed between the calk and the plate I6.

From the above it can be seen that the extension spike includes two calks, namely I1 and 2|. Should either of these become unduly Worn, it may be quickly replaced. Should the calk ll be 30 integrally formed, the plate It may be as readily replaced. The secured manner of assembly should be particularly noted since the forces applied to these devices tend to quickly shorten their useful life by either ripping them entirely from the 35 sole or shearing the calks from their carrying means. a

Another preferred manner of realizing the invention is disclosed in Figures 4 and 5. In this form the plate Ilia is commensurate with the 40 plate [6 and is formed with dove-tail slides 24 engageable in guides 25 in a U-shaped plate 26 which is permanently fixed to the sole as by means of rivets 21. 45

The plate Ilia is provided with a screw seat 28 to receive the screw stud 29 of the calk 2m, said calk being formed with a flange 30 adapted to engage the exposed face of the plate 26 to draw the slides 24 of the plate l6a tightly against 50 the guides 25 when the stud 29 is engaged in its seat. In this form of the invention, the plate also carries a removable calk II or an integral one as above described. To further insure against inadvertent displacement of the slide, the stud 55 V and the plate [6b having an integral calk ilb is removably held to the sole by a calk 2| b, the threaded shank 29b of whichengages a screw seat I5b in'the member 12b, 1 In this form the calk" llb is shown as inwardlydirected.

As shown in Figure 7, the slide 16a may be provided with an integral calk llc, which in this instance is shown as disposed at right angles to the sole l0,

From the foregoing, it may be seen that the invention may be practiced in severalpreferred ways' However, this disclosure by no means exhausts the practical structures which may be utilized in carrying out the invention. For this reason, the prior art, rather than this disclosure should serve as thebasis of interpretation of the scope of the invention as claimed.

I claim:

1. An extension spike comprising a member 'fixed to the sole of the shoe, an extension member, means thereon to penetrate and engage the shoe sole, and means comprising a spike to replaceably lock said extension member to the sole.

2. An extension spike comprising a member fixed to the sole of the shoe, an extension member, means thereon to penetrate and engage the placeably lock saidextension member to the sole.

3. A spike attachment for use at the peripheral edge of golf shoe soles, comprising ,a spike,

.ajbase for 'saidspike extending a considerable distance to one side of the spike and adapted to rest against the under surface of the shoe sole,

a lug extending from the base at another'side of the spike for abutting engagement against the edge of the sole, and means including another spiketo clamp the extension base to the shoe rest against the under surface of the shoe sole,

the longitudinal'edges of saidbase being beveled, a lug extending from the baseat another side of the spike, for abutting engagement against the edge of the sole, means secured to the sole to interfittingly and slidably engage the beveled edges of the base, and means including another spike to clamp the extension baseto the shoe sole.

5. A spike attachment for use at the peripheral edge of golf shoe soles, comprising a spike,

a base for said spike extending a considerable.

distance to one side of the spike and adapted to rest against the under surface'of the shoe sole, a lug extending from the baseat another side of the spike for abutting engagement against the edge of the sole, a spur on said lug for penetrating into the edge of the sole, and means including another spike to, clamp the extension base to the shoe sole. 7

6. An extension spike for shoes comprising a metallic member permanently fixed-to the sole of said shoe, a member superimposed over said fixed member and having a portion in engage ment with the edge of the sole, a calk on the edge of said member adjacent said sole edge,'andmeans for removably securing thesuperimposed mem-,

ber to said fixed member and thus to said sole, said means comprising a calk having a stud engaged with said fixed member;
