HAND GUARD Original Filed June 5. 1933' INVENTOR. BrR/wrcz- M 1- LER Reissued Sept. 13, 1938 UNITED STATES HAND GUARD Bel-niece Moller, Piedmont, Calif.

Original No. 1,984,613, dated December 18,1934,

Serial No. 674,270, June 5, 1933. for reissue October 20, 1936, Serial No. 106,585

14 Claims.

The invention is for an improved hand guard, and more particularly for a guard in the nature of a cuff to be secured to .an infants wrist which will surround the hand and thereby prevent the infant from putting its thumb or any of its fingers into its mouth.

The primary object of the invention is to construct a device of the character indicated which will prevent an infant from putting its thumb or any of its fingers into its mouth, while at the same time not interfere with a free and untrammeled normal movement of the hand and fingers of the infant within the guard, yet permit the hand to grasp things extended into the open outer end of the cuff, such as a rattle or toy.

A further object being to so construct a guard that it will eliminate any danger of discomfort or injury to the infants hand such as chafing or cutting by rough or sharp edges coming in contact therewith.

A still further object of the invention is to so construct such a device that it will be absolutely effective, comfortable, simple and economical of manufacture, and readily adjusted to the hands of an infant.

The invention will be hereinafter fully set forth and particularly pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawing:

Figure 1 is a side elevation showing the guard attached to the wrist of an infant, the wrist and hand being shown in dotted lines.

Figure 2 is a central vertical section.

Figure 3 is a top plan view showing ventilating apertures therethrough and Figure 4 is a vertical sectional view of the bottom portion of the side wall of one of the guard members showing the protective binding stitched thereto. Figure 5 is an enlarged view of the cuff portion,

Like reference characters indicate like parts throughout the several figures of the drawing.

Reference character I indicates the guard as a whole which as here shown comprises two preferably transparent transversely arcuate members made of transparent material such as celluloid. II and I2 indicate the respective arcuate members forming the guard -which are slightly more than of a circle and are nosed or rounded at their respective upper and lower corners as at I3, l4, l5 and It, the side edges of one of the members overlapping the side edges of the other of the members, as clearly shown in Figure 1.

From the foregoing it will be readily appreciated that any outward pressure exerted on the members II and I2 by movement of the infant's hand within the guard will cause 'the members II and I2 to swing outwardly from the bottom, the soft cover I! functioning as a hinge which PATENT OFFICE Application permits limited pivotal movement of the sections thereby affording free and normal use of the hand within the guard, while at the same time effectively preventing the insertion by the infant of any part of its hand in its mouth.

Cover 11, which is preferably made of a soft material such as yarn, is provided with a central opening I8 for the insertion therethrough of an infant's hand and wrist. The cover 11 is provided with ventilating apertures I9 which may be surrounded by metallic eyelets 20 to prevent the closing of the apertures and thereby assuring an absolutely free circulation of air through the guard to avoid perspiration of the infants hand. The cover I1 is preferably made of a single piece of material, though not necessarily so and is folded back upon itself as at 2|, forming a channel 22 in which is secured an elastic band 23 for holding the guard snugly about infants wrist as is clearly shown in Figure 1. It should also be noted that as the band 23 contracts about the baby's wrist, a pull exerted upon the cover or head l'l radially thereof will tend to hold the sections in the overlapped relation shown in Figure 1 and yieldably resist movement of the sections away from each other. The outer or free edges of cover ll are secured to the top of the side walls of the guard members II and I2 by stitching 24 or in any preferred manner.

The lower edges of guard members II and I2 are provided with a soft binding material 25 which may be stitched or otherwise secured thereto to prevent chafing or cutting the infant's hands by the edges of these members.

While Figure 1 indicates the guard cuff as a shell made of two pieces, it is manifest that it may be of but one piece if desired.

What is claimed is:

1. A hand guard comprising a cylindrical body composed of a plurality of transversely arcuate sections having overlapping side edges and a yieldable cover for one end of said body formed with a hand opening and being attached to ends of said sections and mounting the sections for limited tilting movement relative to each other.

2. A hand guard comprising a cylindrical body composed of a plurality of transversely arcuate sections having their side edge portions disposed in overlapping relation to each other, and a yieldable cover for one end of said body pro- 0 vided with a hand opening and having marginal portions secured about ends of said sections, said cover mounting said sections for limited pivotal movement relative to each other.

3. A hand guard comprising a cylindrical body composed of a plurality of transversely arcuate sections having overlapping side edges, and a yieldable cover for one end of said body formed with a hand opening and being attached to ends of said sections and mounting the sections for infant for securing the cuff in limited pivotal movement relative to each other, said cover being provided with ventilating openings, and eyelets secured in said openings to reinforce material bordering the openings. v

4. A hand guard comprising a cylindrical body open at its front end and formed of transversely arcuate sections having overlapped side edge portions, a yieldable cover for the rear end of said body secured to ends of said sections, said cover being formed with a hand opening, and an elastic band secured to the cover around the opening to hold the cover snugly in place about a baby's wrist, the yieldable cover permitting limited pivotal movement of said sections relative to each other from their rear ends.

5. A hand guard comprising a cylindrical body open at one end and formed of sections having overlapped side edge portions, a yieldable cover at the other end of said body formed of fabric and stitched about its margins to ends of said section, said cover being provided with an opening, a channel being formed in the cover around the opening, and an elastic member within the channel to draw the cover about a baby's wrist and yieldably resist spreading of the sections.

6. An anti-thumb-sucking device for infants comprising a cuff of transparent semi-rigid material of a size to enclose a baby's hand and extend outwardly beyond the same, said cuff provided with means at one end of the cuff for securing around the wrist, the outer end of the cuff being open and unobstructed so as to permit the enclosed hand to freely receive and hold a rattle and the like.

7. An anti-thumb-sucking device for infants comprising a cuff of semi-rigid material of a size to enclose a babys hand and extend outwardly beyond the same, said cuff provided with means at one end of the cuff for securing around the wrist, the outer end of the cuff being open and unobstructed so as to permit the enclosed hand to freely receive and hold a rattle and the like.

8. An anti-thumb-sucking device for infants comprislnga cuff of transparent semi-rigid sheet material adapted to fit over the hand of an infant in generally encircling relation thereto and formed to terminate in opposite inner and outer open ends at points adjacent the wrist and outer ends of the fingers respectively, the outer open end being of a diameter at least that of the greatest thickness of the enclosed hand to enable the hand within the cuff to freely receive a rattle or the like, a flexible band secured to the vcuif adjacent the inner end thereof arranged and adapted to closely fit around the wrist of the place'over the hand.

9.
