Aug, 7, 1928 C. I. MATSON CUFF LINK Filed Sept. 1927 Mar 5 ATTORNEY Patented Aug. 7, 1928.

01:11am I. MATSON,

Application fi1ed S eptember2, 1927. Serial No. 217,160.

provements in cuff links and has for its principal object the provision of an improved construction of this character which will be highly efiicient in use and economical in manufacture.

Among the several objects of the invention is to provide a cuff link which includes two buttons joined together in a manner for movement toward and away from each other as the cuff, with which the links are associated, is pulled upwardly or downwardly relative to the arm of the wearer. I

A still further object of the invention is to provide a cuff link which will permit the cuff with which the link is associated, to be pulled upwardly or downwardly relative to the arm of the wearerand which will function to retain the" cuff in a predetermined 2o position upon the arm.

. Other objectswil'l appear hereinafter.

The invention" consists inthe novel combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter described and claimed. The invention will be best understood by reference to the accompanying drawings,

showing the preferred form of construction and in which: 7 Fig. 1 is a side elevational View of the an invention;

Fig. 2 is a sectional detail view of the same; I

Fig. 3 is an edge view of one, of the but tons of the cuff link;

plate of another of the buttons; and

Fig. 5; is an edge view of the plate shown in Fig. 4:. V

, Referring more particularly to the drawings, my improved cuff link is indicated at 10. This cuff link includes two buttons 11 and 12, the structure of which will now be more fully described in the preferred form.

The button 11 comprises two. elongated plates 13 arranged in spaced relation with respect to each other. These parts are joined together by means of pins 14:, and a pin 15 arranged between the pins 14 and from alignmentwith respect to said pins. Mounted on the pins 14 and 15 and groove rollers 16 and 17 respectively and passing over the rollers 16 is a cord 18 preferably of elastic construction.

" Formed on the inner surfaces of the plates 13 and arranged diagonally with respect thereto are two ribs 19 spaced from each This invention relates to certain novel im- Fig. 4 is an inside elevational view ofone otherto provide a jaw within which the end portion 20 of the cord is adapted to be clamped.

From the" lower of the rollers 16 the cord portion 16 ispassed over the roller 17 from the edge 21 of the plates.

The button 12 comprises two plates 22 and 23 spaced from each other and joined together by means of pins 24 upon which is mounted rollers 25 and 26. The portion 16 of the cord passes through an opening 27 formed in the plate 23, said opening being reinforced by a bushing 28 to remove a sharp edge. From this opening the cord passes over the rollers 25 and 26.

The end portion 29 of the cord is secured in place in the following manner.

In the plate 23 there is formed two oppositely disposed converging slots 30, each being of a width less than the diameter of the cord. This end of the cord is looped and portions 31 of the loop are wedged in the slots to effect connection of the cord to the plate 23.

By the use of an expansionable cord it will be apparent that the buttons will adjust themselves'relative to each other when the cufl is moved relative to the arm.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred form of construction for carrying my invention into effect, this is capable of variation and modification, without departing from thespirit of the invention. I, therefore, do notwish to be limited to the precise details of construction set forth, but desire to avail myself of such variations and modifications as come within the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent is: I V
