Application filed March 19, 1919.

' '0 all whom it may concern Be it known that I, SAMUEL Gonnnnne, a citizen of the United States, and resident of the borough of Manhattan, city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bedclothes- Holders, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in bed-clothes holders and has for its object the provision of means for securely gripping and holding the edges of either light or heavy bed clothing.

In the drawings- Figure 1 is a perspective View showing the device in use;

Fig. 2 a detail view partly in vertical section showing the clamp in open position;

Fig. 3 a view similar to Fig. 2 showing the clamp closed;

Fig. 4 a plan view of the clamp as shown in Fig. 3; and

Fig. 5 a view similar to Fig. 3 showing a slightly modified form of clamp.

Referring to the embodiment of the invention shown in Figs. 1 to 1, the bedclothes gripping clamp is formed of a strip of spring metal bent upon itself substantially midway its ends to form two normally spaced diverging jaws 1 and 2 connected by a loop 3. The jaw 1 is bent downwardly and then upwardly and slightly rearwardly at its outer end to form a rounded depres sion or recess 4, and intermediate its ends said jaw is bent to form a loop 5 in which is journaled the lower end of a locking lever 6. The jaw 2 is curved or bowed upwardly intermediate its ends to form a cam portion 7, and this bowed or cam portion is formed with a plurality of transversely extending depressions 8. The outer end of the jaw 2 is rolled upon itself to form a rounded gripping portion or rib 9 adapted to seat in the depression 4 at the outer end of the jaw 1.

The locking lever 6 has a yoke-like rectangular portion embracing the jaw 2, as shown, and a handle portion 6* preferably bent rearwardly so as to lie close to and substantially parallel with the jaws of the clamp when the lever is in looking position. The handle portion 6 of the locking lever is preferably formed integrally with the upper cross-bar of the yoke-like portion of the lever. The clamp is pivotally held to a ring 10 which extends through the loop 3. One

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 11, 1921. Serial No. 283,499.

end of a strap 11 is secured to the ring 10 and a buckle 12 is secured to said strap 11 intermediate the ends of the strap. The device may be securely fastened to the side rail or other part of a bed by wrapping the free end of the strap around said rail or part and securing the same by the buckle 12.

It will be obvious that by inserting the edges of the bed clothes between the aws 1 and 2, as indicated in the drawings, and then rocklng the lever 6 toward the loop 3, the aws will be forced toward each other to cause the outer ends thereof to grip the bed clothes. It will be obvious also that as the upper cross bar of the yoke-like portion of the lever 6 continues to ride over the camportion 7 of jaw 2 after the jaws engage the bed clothes the jaw 2 will tend to straighten, thus forcing the rounded end 9 thereof firmly forwardly and downwardly into the depression 4 in the outer end of jaw 1, the open side of which depression faces upwardly and rearwardly. This construction insures a very firm grip upon the bed clothes and is especially advantageous when the device is used to hold in place one or more thicknesses of thin material, the forward and downward movement of the clamping member 9 serving to jam or wedge the bedclothes into the recess 4, forming a sort of bite in the several layers of the clothing. The upper cross-bar of the yoke portion of locking lever 6 is adapted to. snap in any one of the depressions 8 in the cam portion of jaw 2 to hold the lever in various adjusted positions. It will be obvious that any desired number of depressions 8 may be provided. By providing the lever 6 with a laterally extending handle, as shown, it will be seen that when the lever is in locking position its free end will lie comparatively close to the jaw 2, thus rendering accidental shifting of the lever unlikely.

The form of the device illustrated in Fig. 5 is identical with the construction above described except that the recess 4 on jaw 1 and the rounded portion 9 on jaw 2 are omitted and the jaws formed with gripping portions 13 and 14 having cooperating transversely corrugated faces, the projecting portions on each jaw being adapted to engage in the recesses in the other jaw and thus firmly grip the bed clothing. The projecting portions or ribs of the jaw 2 are slightly staggered relatively to the cooperating recesses in jaw 1 so that they will be moved slightly forwardly and downwardly into said recesses when the jaw 2 is placed under compression by the locking lever 6.

VJhat I claim is:

A clamp comprising a strip of resilient sheet metal bent to form a pair of normally diverging jaws one of which is substantially straight and has its free end bent transversely to form a recess the open side of which faces upwardly and rearwardly toward the connected ends of the jaws, the other jaw having a transversely corrugated bowed portion intermediate its ends, anda locking lever having a rectangular yoke portion embracing the bowed jaw and pivotally held to the straight jaw and adapted to ride over and compress the bowed portion of the bowed jaw and also force the bowed jaw bodily toward the straight aw to force the free end thereof downwardly and forwardly into the recess in the free end of the straight jaw under spring pressure, the yoke portion 01"" the lever being adapted to snap into either of the corrugationsin the bowed jaw to lock the jaws in clamping relation.

In testimony whereof I hereunto affix my signature.
