SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 613,145, dated October 25, 1898. Application filed April 16, 1898. Serial No. 677,815. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, SETH WATsoN HER- RICK and CALEB RAMSEY LUNGER, of London, England, have invented new and useful Improvements in Duplex Combs, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to an improved appliance for holding ladies hair in position; and it consists, substantially, of two entirely separable combs so designed as to be capable of interlocking, one of the combs being provided for this purpose with guideways extending longitudinally of the teeth and the other comb having blades or prongs adapted to enter said guideways.

Hitherto the duplex combs employed in hair-dressing have been permanently attached to each other by means of a rivet or hinge and have been opened or folded apart on this joint for the reception of the hair infolded between them. Experience has shown that this mode of jointing the two constituent portions of the duplex comb is open to practical objections, the adjustment of such appliances in the hair being a matter of difficulty by reason of the small degree of separation possible at the jointed sides, as well as by reason of the uncertainty which is experienced in placing the comb exactly upright after folding the hinged arms together for the purpose of fastening.

Our invention has for its purpose to obviate these disadvantages and to provide a comb in which the two constituent portions, although unattached and entirely separable, may be secured together with a sufiicient degree of firmness by sliding or otherwise fitting the one into the other the appliance being retained in position by the conformation of the interlocking grooves, aided by the springiness and friction of the parts brought into contact, all as hereinafter described and claimed.

To the end that our invention may be clearly understood and readily carried into effect by those skilled in the art we will now describe, with reference to the appended illustrations, that mode of carrying it into practical effect which our experiments have shown to be the most advantageous.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification,

in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a face view of our improved duplex comb with the two sections thereof separated. Fig. 2 shows the two sections connected, and Fig. 3 is a cross-section on the line 3 3 of Fig. 2.

The comb consists of two entirely separable parts A and B, which may be made of any suitable material, such as horn, tortoise-shell, celluloid, or thin sheet metal. One of these parts, and preferably the upper, as shown at 2, is provided with projecting arms, folds, or slides 1 1, into the inner grooves 2 2 of which (more distinctly shown in the view of the upper comb depicted in Fig. 1) the other portion of the appliance B may be so slipped or fitted as to be retained by the closeness of the contact of the slide and by the springiness of the material of which the comb is made. The security of this interlock may be further increased bycorrugating, striating, or roughening the surfaces of contact, as is shown at 1) upon the entering blades b of the portion B, Figs. 1 and 2.

The method of employing our improved duplex comb willbe readily understood. The two portions of the appliance being separated are pushed from opposite sides through the hair to be dressed, beingthereby so interlocked as to hold the hair together in one tail or switch, which is thus so firmly retained that it may be twisted up over the comb in any desired form of coiffure. To facilitate this further dressing of the hair over and around the appliance, a number of suitable projections or wings may be formed upon the comb, such as those designated by i 4, Figs. 1, 2, and Around these wings the switch of hair may'be easily and securely wound.

Among the notable advantages of our improved duplex comb' may be mentioned the fact that its entire separation and sliding interlock enables it to be adj usted with equal tightness upon either a very thick or a very thin head of hair, also the fact that, as the separated combs are not rotated or deflected in the act of fitting together, it may readily be inserted into the hair in a perfectly straight or upright position. Furthermore, it may be noted that our method of interlocking two entirely separate combs does away With hinges, separable sections, each having teeth and one 15 rivets, or similar joints of any kind, which constructed with blades or prongs, While the joints are from their necessarily small size liaother section has guideways for said blades or ble to be broken by the strain of adjustment prongs.

5 and fastening. 2. Aduplex comb,consisting of two entirely It is obvious that ourirnproved duplex comb separable sections, each having teeth and one 20 may be inserted into the hair not only verticonstructed with blades or prongs having a cally, as heretofore described, but horizonroughened surface, While the othersection has tally, or, indeed at any desired angle of incliguideways for said blades or prongs.
