Title:
Attaching device for a tie
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
The purpose of the invention is to keep a tie in a still, fixed position and to restrain the free movement of the tie because of wind. It also prevents the movement of the tie aside under a jacket while walking as well as it prevents discomfort while bending or sitting down without a jacket. The functional constituent of the invention is an industrially manufactured hairclip/barrette. The invention functions by clipping a tie to the strap of a shirt. Such attachment allows to keep a tie in a still, fixed position without restraining the free movement of a wearer at the same time.

1. Design and construction of the Attaching Device for a tie according to the drawings and description.

Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The problem of a misplaced tie under a jacket, a tie flipping because of wind, while the jacket is unbuttoned, as well as the tie hanging while bending has always been a problem for those who wear ties. Moreover, not all of those who wear ties use various kinds of outer clips and pins because the latter don't always provide elegancy to the look. However, the given invention solves the problem without requiring usage of outer clips and pins by clipping a tie to the strap of a shirt. This invention is a step further from the previous inventions that were intended to restrain tie movement. Although the previous inventions did restrain tie movement, they did it by either attaching a tie to buttons with buttonholes, or the removable attaching devices were bulky and noticeable while the means of attaching a tie to a shirt of this invention is light and unnoticeable.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

The given invention, Attaching Device for a Tie, operates by the principle of an industrially manufactured hairclip. FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 show the clip in unlocked and locked modes, with parts being designated: 32—body of the clip; 22—pressing slat with stabilizer 14 and slot 13; 16—clincher connecting/joining the pressing parts of the clip. FIG. 3 shows the clip without clincher 16. FIG. 4 shows the clip without clincher 16 in view A-A.

The basis for this invention is an industrially manufactured hairclip (FIG. 5). The invention piece/part has to be manufactured of spring steel thicker than that of the actual hairclip. The invention (FIG. 5) preserves all of the main parts and features of the original clip. Constructional changes are made to the body 32 and pressing slat 22. The configuration of pressing slat 22 is shown in cut view on FIG. 6. Pressing slat 22 should be raised to height 18 relatively to body 33. Also, perforations 12 are made on pressing slat 22 (FIG. 5, FIG. 6). The size of groove 13 on stabilizer 14 may be reduced.

All of these additional changes are applied to the part in order to press rubber mass m with a high friction coefficient onto the functional surface of pressing slat 22 and stabilizer 14 (FIG. 8, 9, 10).

After all of the procedures—bending, quenching, mass m pressing, and connecting the two parts with clincher 16—the part on FIG. 15 transforms into the Attaching Device for a Tie (FIG. 7). FIG. 8, 9, 10 separately show pressing slat 22 with stabilizer 14 on the functional surface of which the rubber mass m with a high friction coefficient is pressed.

Note: the mass m may not only be pressed but also glued unto the functional surface of pressing slat 22 and stabilizer 14. In that case, there is no need in perforations 12 and groove 13 on pressing slat 22.

Formed in the process of bending and quenching, claps 38, 53, 67, 44 (FIG. 7, 11) serve for attaching the attaching device to strap 30 of tie 27 (FIG. 13, 14), which is found on the back side of tie 27, through which end 29 of tie 27 is passed (FIG. 15. 16, 17).

Schematic cut-view of the functional principle of the Attaching Device for a Tie is shown in FIG. 16 (actual size) and FIG. 17 (magnified view). In unlocked mode, the attaching device is put/slipped on upper strap 48 of shirt 46 so that strap 48 is placed between pressing slat 22 with stabilizer 14, where mass m is pressed unto their surface, and body 32. When the attaching device is locked, pressing slat 22 with stabilizer 14 presses strap 48 of shirt 46 to body 32. As a result, tie 27 is firmly held on upper strap 48 of shirt 46. Lower strap 48a of shirt 46 is not involved in the process.
