It would not be fatal on an issue of double patenting were the claims of the second patent directed to different parts of the structure of the first patent. The several patents in suit relate to fasteners of the separable slide fastener type.
In this instance the specifications in the two applications and patents are in part identical and in the main the same. The combination with a fastener comprising members having interdigitating elements, and a slide for moving said elements into and out of interlocking engagement, of a guide secured to one end of one of said members and having a running connection with the interdigitating edge of the other of said members, and means whereby when the slide is moved into engagement with said guide, all of the elements of said members are out of interlocking engagement, whereby the members may be relatively adjusted lengthwise of the fastener.
Although fasteners of this type are widely known, just how or why the thing works has long been a mystery to the casual observer.
Louis…to get to a forecast amount of around 4 inches. If a zipper fails, it can either jam i. The specification calls for flat or thin interlocking members distinguished from the Kuhn-Moos block-shaped members. Airtight zippers were first developed by NASA for making high-altitude pressure suits and later space suitscapable of retaining air pressure inside the suit in the vacuum of space.
This seal is structurally weak against internal pressure, and can be separated by pressure within the sealed container pushing outward on the ridges, which simply flex and spread apart, potentially allowing air or liquid entry through the spread-open ridges.
A three-piece version of the above uses a tiny pivoting arm held under tension inside the hinge.
It would, however, be fatal unless it plainly appears in the second patent that the inventions covered by its claims are separate inventions distinctly different and independent from those covered by the first patent. Today the zipper is by far the most widespread fastener, and is found on clothing, luggage, leather goods, and various other objects.
S By the employment of this novel Zipper in the construction of such a garment, the waistline may readily and conveniently be adjusted to suit the figure, by simply moving the slide 6 into the socket I7 of the guide II, after which the parts 17 and 18 of the waistline of the garment may readily be relatively adjusted in a circumferential direction to Increase or decrease the size of the waistline of the garment.
But the sales mainly were for actors costumes and novelty items.
Two way closed-ended zippers are closed at both ends; they are often used in luggage and can have either one or two pullers on the zipper. Claim 7 of the second patent, however, rests on a different footing.
The NAM is more tame at about 1. The fastener is unlocked by drawing the slider along the seam in the other direction.
If so, it is invention, with limitations. A rubber or PVC coated reverse zipper is called a waterproof zipper. The fly opening is accomplished by a snap on the zipper tape.
There was also launched an application for another patent which eventuated in the second patent in suit. With separating zippers, the insertion pin may tear loose from the tape; the tape may even disintegrate from use.
When thus used, the tape members 2 and 3 of the fastener are secured to the relatively adjustable parts of the garment as, for example, the lower skirt portion 18 and the waist portion 19, respectively. Claim 7 of the second patent dealing with stringers and specifying their structure is for a separate invention distinctly different and independent from any covered in the first patent and falls within the law of the authorities just cited saving a claim from double patenting.
The campaign praised zippers for promoting self-reliance in young children by making it possible for them to dress in self-help clothing. In a reverse coil zipper, the coil is on the reverse back side of the zipper and the slider works on the flat side of the zipper normally the back, now the front.
The claim is valid. Henry Heinz, — Pickle Baron Heinz made cleanliness and quality a key business approach. Given that forecasts are not always that accurate this far out and with that type of certainty regarding coverage areas which is understandable given that the earth is miles around so miles is not that big of an error then it is reasonable to assume that we at least have a risk for excessive rain.
It also has projections and recesses on interlocking members of the prior art, as it has a right to have, except the members are thin instead of thick. Anti-slide zipper locks[ edit ] Some zippers include a designed ability for the slider to hold in a steady open or closed position, resisting forces that would try to move the slider and open the zipper unexpectedly.
Coil zippers now form the bulk of sales of zippers worldwide. On This date inthe first true zipper, the Hookless No.On This date inthe first true zipper, the Hookless No.

The finished product is called a "zipper," the word doubtless being derived from the sound, or speed, in opening and closing it.

Tag Archives: hookless zipper and were one of the earliest applications of the then brand-new Hookless fastener.
The zipper on this one is the earliest production model produced by Hookless, produced under patent no.applied for in and granted in An improved model came out later innarrowing the dating of this. In the drawings: Figure 1 is a fragmentary view showing the two members of a conventional Zipper fastener with the invention embodied in the construction thereof; Figure 2 is a cross-sectional view on the line of Figure 1; Figure 3 is a top view of Figure 1; Figure 4 is a detail sectional view on a slightly larger scale, showing the slide.
A zipper, zip, fly, or zip fastener, formerly known as a clasp locker, is a commonly used device for binding the edges of an opening of fabric or other flexible material, such as on a garment or a bag. It is used in clothing (e.g., jackets and jeans), luggage and other bags, sporting goods, camping gear (e.g.
tents and sleeping bags), and other items.Download
