4 Claims. (Cl. 24-245)
This invention relates to improvements in gar
ment or hose supporters, and more particularly
to an improved. form of button or stud to be em
a supporting member, which is usually of elastic
material and attached to a metal loop ‘I. Pivot
ally attached to this loop is a supporter-holding
ployed in connection with such articles.
Heretofore, garment supporters have been
loop 8 provided with substantially straight or
constructed in which the button or stud has been
the cross bar being located at the lower extrem
ity of the side arms 9. The side arms are sub
of such size orhei‘ght that it protrudes through
the stocking and shows conspicuously through
the garment.

It is therefore an object of myinve'ntion to
provide a button or stud ofdminimrum height
whereby when the latter is used in connection
with a hose supporter, the above mentioned ‘de
fect of the prior art constructions is‘ eliminated
15 since the shallowness of the improved‘ button
stantially parallel to each other for a short dis
tance above the curved cross bar, and there
after diverge so as to provide an enlarged loop %
through which the head of the supporter button
is adapted to be inserted when the supporter is
applied to a stocking or the like.
A fabric tab H supports and partially sur
rounds a base plate 12.
On this plate, I mount

prising a head M which has been shown as

-
Another object is to provide a button or stud
of this character with a head or ?ange portion
20 of minimum thickness whereby to further re
duce the‘ height of the conventional button or
stud.
'
'
A further object is to reinforce the head or
?ange of a button of this character by theem
25 ployment of a relatively thin metallic disc or'the
like.
'
'
‘
'
A still further object is to furnish a button of
this character in which the metal reinforcing disc
is embedded in the head of the button and is
30 held in place by means of a rivet or eyelet which
is secured to a suitable base plate forming part
of my improved button.
With the foregoing objects outlined and with
other objects in View which will appear as the
35 description proceeds, the invention consists in
the novel features hereinafter described in de
tail, illustrated in the accompanying drawing,
and more particularly pointed out in the ap
pended claims.
In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a front elevation partly broken away
of a conventional hose supporter provided with
my improved button.
Fig. 2 is an elevation of my improved device
45 with parts broken away to facilitate illustration.
Fig. 3 is a plan view of my reinforcing metal
disc.

Fig. 4 is a side view of the same.
Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional view of my im
50 proved device taken on the line 5-—-5 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 6 is a plan View of a modi?cation of my
reinforcing metal disc.
Fig. 7 is a similar view of a further modi?ca

parallel side ‘armsill and a curved cross bar IS,
Referring to the drawing in detail, 6 designates
conventional shape, if desired. The button is
provided with a relatively short shank [5.
As heretofore pointed out, it is desired in arti
cles of this character‘ to make the button so low
that the head will not protrude through the
stocking to any great extent when the supporter
holding loop is in place. As articles of this char
acter are usually made of rubber or the like, it
is impossible to make the head of the button thin
enough
withstand the wear imposed upon ‘it,
without‘ employing some reinforcing washer or
the like.
Consequently, I provide a relatively 30
thin metal disc or washer ‘l6 embedded in the
head of the button. The disc or washer may be
of any desired shape, and while I have shown the
same in Fig. 3 as having substantially undeformed
and imperforate plane surfaces, I may, if de 35
sired, employ a disc of the character shown in
Fig. 6, that is, having a plurality of apertures
Ilia. On the other hand, I have found in actual
practice that a disc of the character shown in
Fig. 7 having a scalloped edge l?b may also be
employed for my purposes. This disc or washer
is held in place by means of a rivet I‘! or the like
which extends through the head I'll, shank l5
and is secured to the base plate If.
The button is preferably composed of relative
ly soft rubber and is secured on the base plate
l2 by a single stud or rivet passing entirely
through the button and comprising a head I8
and a round shank I9. Adjacent the lower end
of the shank I provide a reduced portion 20 to
furnish shoulders 2| on the shank which, when
the parts are assembled, engage the face of the
base plate I 2, the reduced portion 20 of the shank
passing through the base plate and being riv
eted over on the back thereof, as indicated at 55

22. The head I4 of the button is provided with
What I claim and desire to secure by Letters
a recess or depression 23 for receiving the head ' Patent is:
I8 of the holding rivet, and this groove or de
pression is substantially round to conform to
the shape of head I 8 of the rivet which it receives.
As above pointed out, the single holding rivet
for securing the botton to its base plate passes
entirely through the collet as well as through
the hole 24 in the reinforcing disc I6, and as indi
10 cated in Fig. 5, I prefer to sink the top of the
head I8 of the holding rivet slightly below the
top of the button head to engage the depression
or recess 23 and thereby reduce the thickness of
the button head and minimize the amount of ex
posed metal surface.
The head of the button or stud is considerably
enlarged with respect to the periphery of the
shank, to provide an overhang or ?ange 25 ex
tending beyond the shank throughout the periph
20 ery of the latter, and by embedding the metal
disc I6 in said enlarged head and securing this
disc to the shank of the rivet, it is obvious that
the ?ange or overhang will be reinforced so as to
effectively prevent accidental removal, breaking
25 of or displacement of the button from the base
plate.
While the shank I5 of the button has been
shown and described as being relatively short,
there is sui?cient clearance between the base
plate and the under surface of the head I 4 of
the button to accommodate the curved cross bar
