To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, John Pletscher and John C. Pletscher, citizens of the United States, residing at Baltimore, in the State of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Guard Attachments for Razor-Blades, of which the following is a specification.
Our invention relates to improvements in safety-guard attachments for razor-blades, and has for its object to provide a simple and improved device of this character which may be readily attached to or removed from the blade and which can be quickly and thoroughly cleaned after use.
Another object of the invention is to provide a construction of guard which may be manufactured by the stamping process, so that the cost may be minimized, and also to provide a construction that will permit its attachment and adjustment to blades of various widths.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein—
Referring to the drawings by numerals,
In practice the two parts forming the guard are secured together by the downwardly-projecting arms
From the foregoing description it will be understood that the rear side of the razor-blade that is to contact with the face is free of objections and there are no hinge-clips to become clogged with soap. By this construction the device may be readily and thoroughly cleaned.
Having thus fully described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. In a safety-guard for razors, the combination with a channel-bar provided with a plurality of downwardly-projecting rigid arms, of a guard-plate slidably engaging the rigid arms of the channel-bar and means for clamping the guard-plate and channel-bar together to hold the guard-plate in the adjusted position on the rigid arms of the channel-bar.
2. In a safety-guard for razors, the combination with a channel-bar provided at one side with downwardly-projecting arms and at the other side having one or more spring-clips, of a guard-plate adjustable on the arms of the channel-bar, and means coacting between the guard-plate and said channel-bar for holding the plate in the adjusted position.
3. In a safety-guard for razors, the combination with a channel-bar provided at one side with downwardly-projecting arms, of a guard-plate having loops through which the arms on the channel-bar project and clamp devices coacting between the guard-plate and channel-bar to hold the guard-plate to said channel-bar.
4. In a safety-guard for razors, the combination with a channel-bar provided with a downwardly-projecting arm at each end, of a guard-plate having a loop at each end to receive the arms on the channel-bar, and a clamp device pivoted to each end of the guard-plate adjacent the said loops and arranged to clamp the channel-bar to hold the guard-plate thereto.
In testimony whereof we affix our signatures in presene
John C. Pletscher.
