[0002] The present invention relates to a cap, and more particularly to a cap with an assemble rail for a cap accessory, wherein an elongated guiding rail is affixed along a bottom brim of a cap body in such a manner that the cap accessory, such as a cap peak or a sunglasses, is capable of sliding along the guiding rail to selectively adjust a position of the accessory with respect to cap body.

[0003] 2. Description of Related Arts

[0004] Caps are known in art and become necessities to people during outdoor activities. Conventionally, a cap comprising a cap body having a cap cavity and a cap peak outwardly extended from a bottom brim of the cap body in such a manner that when the cap body is put on a wearer's head, the cap peak is capable of blocking the sunlight directly towards the wearer's eyes so as to provide a shading purpose. Therefore, many sportsmen would like to wear a cap during the outdoor activities.

[0005] For example, baseball players would like to wear a baseball cap for shading because they have to catch the baseball flying in the sky. However, when they run from one direction to another direction, the sunlight may directly shines on their faces. Therefore, they have to turn the cap around their head for shading the sunlight. Sometime, it is a hassle for them to switch the cap peak to block the sunlight so that they may throw the cap away to prevent missing of the catch of the ball.

[0006] Moreover, the cap body is constructed by a plurality of fabric made cap leaves connected with each other edges to edges. Since different wearers have different head shapes, the cap cavity of the cap body is capable of deforming its shape to fit the head shape of the wearer after a period of time. Therefore, when the wearer needs to turn the cap around his or her head at the time, the shape of the cap body will be distorted.

[0007] In addition, it is a hassle for the wearer that he or her must initially take off the cap from his or her head and put it back on in order to turn the cap around the head. For example, a quick adjustment of the cap peak is required for the wearer during driving. However, the procedure of turning the cap around will disturb the wearer who is driving.

SUMMARY OF THE PRESENT INVENTION

[0008] A main object of the present invention is to provide a cap with an assemble rail for an accessory, wherein an elongated guiding rail is affixed along a bottom brim of a cap body in such a manner that the cap accessory, such as a cap peak or a sunglasses, is capable of sliding along the guiding rail to selectively adjust a position of the accessory with respect to cap body.

[0009] Another object of the present invention is to provide a cap with an assemble rail for an accessory, wherein the cap accessory is capable of quickly sliding along the guiding rail for shading purpose. In other words, the wearer does not require to take off the cap and turn the cap around the wearer's head.

[0010] Another object of the present invention is to provide a cap with an assemble rail for an accessory, wherein since only the accessory is slidably turned with respect to the cap body, the cap body will be stayed at the same position on the wearer's head, so as to prevent the cap body from being distorted.

[0011] Another object of the present invention is to provide a cap with an assemble rail for an accessory, wherein the guiding rail is adapted to built-in with the cap body at the bottom brim thereof, so as to keep the aesthetic appearance of the cap.

[0012] Another object of the present invention is to provide a cap with an assemble rail for an accessory, wherein more than one cap accessory is capable of slidably mounting to the cap body without distorting the shape of the cap.

[0056] As shown in FIG. 7, the first adjuster 341 ′ has an engagement slot 3411 ′ having a C-shaped cross sectional communicating with the sliding slot 311′ and a plurality of adjustment through grooves 3412′ spacedly provided at upper and lower walls of the engagement slot 3411′. The second adjuster 342′ comprises an elastic adjuster arm 3421′, having a V-shaped, having two engaging tips 3422′ opposedly and outwardly extending wherein the adjuster arm 3421′ is arranged to slidably insert into the engagement slot 3411′ so that the two engaging tips 3422′ are inserted into the adjustment through grooves 3412′ at the upper and lower walls of the engagement slot 3411′ respectively to outside, so as to retain the circumferential size of the bottom brim 12′ of the cap body 10′.

[0057] In other words, when the engaging tips 3422′ are engaged with the adjustment through grooves 3412′ at positions close to the end of the guiding rail 31′, the size of the circumference of the bottom brim 12′ of the cap body 10′ will be reduced. Likewise, when the engaging tips 3422′ are engaged with the adjustment through grooves 3412′ at positions away from the end of the guiding rail 31′, the size of the circumference of the bottom brim 12′ of the cap body 10′ will be increased.

[0058] In order to detach the second adjuster 342′ from the first adjuster 341′, the wearer is able to apply a compression force at the engaging tips 3422′ to push the engaging tips 3422′ into the engagement slot 3411′ so as to disengage the second adjuster 342′ from the first adjuster 341′.

[0059] FIG. 8 illustrates an alternative mode of the guiding rail 31E which is mounted along the bottom brim 12E of the cap body 10F wherein an upper portion of the guiding rail 31E is affixed to the bottom edges of the cap leaves 101E and a lower portion of the guiding rail 31E is affixed to an upper edge of the brim strap 102E while the brim strap 102E is inwardly flipped to attached to inner sides of the cap leaves 101E to form the bottom brim 12E in such a manner that the sliding slot 311E is indented on the cap body 10F around the bottom brim 12E thereof, so as to keep the aesthetic appearance of the cap.

[0060] It is worth mentioning that the sliding rail assembly 30E is capable of incorporating with the size adjuster 34′ as disclosed above second embodiment without altering the structure of the sliding rail assembly 30E.

[0061] FIG. 9 illustrates an alternative mode of the size adjuster 34″ wherein the first adjuster 341″, which is integrally extended from one end of the guiding rail 31″, has an engagement slot 3411″ having a C-shaped cross sectional communicating with the sliding slot 311″ and a plurality of adjustment through grooves 3412″ spacedly provided on a front wall of the engagement slot 3411″ at an opening thereof.

[0062] The second adjuster 342′, which is integrally extended from another opposed end of the guiding rail 31″, has an elastic adjuster arm 3421″ having a V-shaped cross sectional, and at least an engaging tip 3422″ outwardly protruded from the adjuster arm 3421″ in such a manner that when the adjuster arm 3421″ is slidably inserted into the engagement slot 3411″, the engaging tip 3422″ is selectively engaged with the adjustment through groove 3412″ so as to retain the circumferential size of the bottom brim 12″ of the cap body 10″.

[0063] In order to detach the second adjuster 342″ from the first adjuster 341″, the wearer is able to compress the adjuster arm 3421″ at a free end thereof to push the engaging tips 3422″ into the engagement slot 3411″ so as to disengage the second adjuster 342″ from the first adjuster 341″.

[0064] It is worth mentioning that the alignment arrangement 33 of the first embodiment and its alternative can be applied on the second embodiment of the present invention without altering the original configuration thereof, so as to slidably guide the cap accessory 20″ at a desired position with respect to the cap body 10″.

[0065] While the forgoing description and figures describe the first and second embodiments and their alternatives of the present invention, it should be appreciated that certain obvious modification, variations, and substitutions may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the present invention. For example, the size adjuster 34′ of the second embodiment can be employed in the first embodiment while the two parallel sliding slots 311C of the first embodiment can be incorporated with the second embodiment.
