To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, John Guinan, a citizen of the United States, residing at Jamaica, in the county of Queens and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
The razor-blade and safety-guard attachment involve novel features and are specially adapted to each other, the purpose being simplicity, economy and lightness of structure, ease with which the guard may be removed for cleaning, and the despatch and convenience with which it may be placed in position.
For a full description of the invention and the merits thereof and also to acquire a knowledge of the details of construction of the means for effecting the result reference is to be had to the following description and drawings hereto attached.
While the essential and characteristic features of the invention are susceptible of modification, still the preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which—
Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the drawings by the same reference characters.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is—
1. In combination, a razor-blade, a safety-guard attachment, a clip having pivotal connection with the outer end of the guard and adapted to be fitted to the outer end of the razor-back, and a clamp at the inner end of said guard for gripping the shank of the razor-blade to hold said guard in either one of its two positions, substantially as set forth.
2. In combination, a razor having a portion of its shank made rounding, a safety-guard attachment, a clip at the outer end of the guard to be fitted to the outer end of the razor-back, and a clamp at the inner end of said guard and adapted to grip the rounded portion of the razor-shank to hold the guard in proper position, substantially as specified.
3. A safety-guard attachment for razors provided with a clamp comprising pivotally-connected members, and a lock-lever pivoted to one of said members and provided with a wedge portion to effect a spreading of the clamp members at one end and a closing of said members at the opposite end to secure the guard in proper position, substantially as set forth.
4. In a safety-guard attachment for razors, a clamp comprising pivotally-connected members, a cam forming a side of the space between said clamp members, and a lock-lever pivoted to a clamp member and adapted to coöperate with said cam to effect a spreading of the clamp members at one end and a closing thereof at the opposite end to grip a portion of the razor and secure the guard in proper position, substantially as set forth.
5. In a safety-guard attachment for razors, a clamp comprising companion members, one of said members having an opening and the other member having a tongue pressed therefrom to pass through the opening of the first-mentioned member and bent to secure said members, and means coöperating with the clamp members to cause them to grip the razor and hold the guard in place, substantially as set forth.
6. In a safety-guard attachment for razors, a clamp comprising pivotally-connected members, one of said members having a cam portion upon its inner side, and a lock-wedge pivoted to a member of the clamp and adapted to coöperate with the cam portion of the clamp to secure the guard in proper position, substantially as set forth.
7. The herein-described safety-guard attachment for razors, comprising a guard having arms at opposite ends, one of said arms terminating in a jaw, a companion clamp member pivoted to the arm of the guard provided with the jaw, a lock-lever pivoted to the rigid clamp member and provided with a wedge to operate between the clamp members to effect a gripping action thereof, and a clip pivoted to the outer arm of the guard, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
