To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Edward B. Gibford, a citizen of the United States, residing at Adrian, in the county of Lenawee, State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Razor-Guards; and I do 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 it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to razor guards and consists in the construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully set forth and pointed out particularly in the claims.
The object of the invention is to provide a razor guard of simple and inexpensive construction, in which the arrangement is such as to render it readily attachable to or detachable from the blade, and wherein provision is made for adjusting the guard to the blade as desired and securely locking the guard at any point of adjustment.
The above object is attained by the structure illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which :—
Referring to the characters of reference,
Extending inwardly from the ends of the arms
The back plate
The guard plate
This construction of razor guard is very simple and inexpensive, and is of a character to enable it to be readily cleaned after use, the arrangement of the parts enabling it to be readily mounted upon a blade and the guard quickly adjusted according to the width of the blade and the desire of the user.
Having thus fully set forth my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:—
1. In a razor guard, the combination of the back plate having clamping jaws adapted to embrace the blade and having laterally extending supporting arms provided with projecting brackets, there being upon each of said arms a slide-way, a guard plate having extensions adapted to cater said ways, and the eccentric levers pivoted on said brackets for locking said extensions therein.
2. In a razor guard, the combination with the back plate having means of attachment to the blade, and having at each end a laterally extending arm provided with a projecting bracket, there being upon each of said arms an open slide way, and an eccentric lever pivoted on the bracket thereof opposite the opening in said way, a guard plate having extensions adapted to slide in said ways and to be engaged by said eccentrics to lock the guard plate against movement.
In testimony whereof, I sign this specification in the presence of two witnesses.
Edward B. Gibford.
