Anmerkung: Text basiert auf automatischer optischer Zeichenerkennung (OCR). Verwenden Sie bitte aus rechtlichen Gründen die PDF-Version.

WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. An adjustable connector strap for a hat, the adjustable connector strap comprising:

a first body extending along a first longitudinal axis, the first body having: a base having a pair of opposed lateral edges; and a plurality of teeth extending from the base, the plurality of teeth comprising a first set of teeth and a second set of teeth positioned adjacent respective ones of the pair of opposed lateral edges;

each tooth having a first portion and a second portion, the first portion being positioned between the second portion and the base;

each tooth defining a width in a direction parallel to the first longitudinal axis, the maximum width of the second portion being greater than the maximum width of the first portion;

a second body extending along a second longitudinal axis, the second body having:

a pair of opposed lateral edges; and

a plurality of notches comprising a first set of notches and a second set of notches, the plurality of notches being complimentary in shape to the plurality of teeth;

the second body being selectively engagable with the first body in a first engaged configuration and a second engaged configuration, the number of teeth being received in corresponding ones of the plurality of notches increasing as the second body transitions from the first engagement configuration to the second engagement configuration.

2. The adjustable connector strap recited in claim 1, wherein a degree of overlap between the first body and the second body increases as the second body transitions from the first engagement configuration to the second engagement configuration.

3. The adjustable connector strap recited in claim 1, wherein the second body includes a first surface, an opposing second surface, a plurality of sidewalls extending between first and second surface, and a plurality of projections extending from respective ones of the plurality of sidewalls.

4. The adjustable connector strap recited in claim 1, wherein in a cross sectional plane passing through both the first and second bodies when the second body is in the first engaged configuration, the cross sectional plane being parallel to the first and second longitudinal axes and passing through at least one tooth and at least one notch, the at least one tooth having a first portion width defined by the first portion and a second portion width defined by the second portion, the at least one notch having a maximum width and a minimum width, the minimum width being defined by the projection, the minimum width being greater than the first portion width and less than the second portion width.

5. The adjustable connector strap recited in claim 1, wherein the each of the first set of teeth is aligned with a corresponding one of the second set of teeth along a respective axis perpendicular to the first longitudinal axis.

6. The adjustable connector strap recited in claim 1, wherein each of the first set of notches is aligned with a corresponding one of the second set of notches along a respective axis perpendicular to the second longitudinal axis.

7. The adjustable connector strap recited in claim 1, wherein each tooth includes a triangular periphery.

8. The adjustable connector strap recited in claim 1, wherein each tooth includes an arcuate surface.

9. The adjustable connector strap recited in claim 1, wherein the second body includes one of a logo and indicia formed thereon.

10. A method of using an adjustable connector strap, the method comprising the steps of:

placing a second body on a first body,

the first body extending along a first longitudinal axis and having: a base having a pair of opposed lateral edges; and

a plurality of teeth extending from the base, the plurality of teeth comprising a first set of teeth and a second set of teeth positioned adjacent respective ones of the pair of opposed lateral edges;

each tooth having a first portion and a second portion, the first portion being positioned between the second portion and the base;

each tooth defining a width in a direction parallel to the first longitudinal axis, the maximum width of the second portion being greater than the maximum width of the first portion;

the second body extending along a second longitudinal axis and having:

a pair of opposed lateral edges; and

a plurality of notches comprising a first set of notches and a second set of notches, the plurality of notches being complimentary in shape to the plurality of teeth; and

moving the first set of notches on the second body toward the first set of teeth on the first body.

11. The method recited in claim 10, further comprising the step of pressing the first set of notches toward the first set of teeth to cause engagement between at least one of the first set of notches and at least one of the first set of teeth.

12. The method recited in claim 11, further comprising the step of pressing the second set of notches toward the second set of teeth to cause engagement between at least one of the second set of notches and at least one of the second set of teeth.

13. A headwear member wearable on a head of a user, the headwear member comprising:

a crown body positionable adjacent the head of a user;

a first body connected to a first portion of the crown body, the first body extending along a first longitudinal axis, the first body having:

a base having a pair of opposed lateral edges; and a plurality of teeth extending from the base, the plurality of teeth comprising a first set of teeth and a second set of teeth positioned adjacent respective ones of the pair of opposed lateral edges;

each tooth having a first portion and a second portion, the first portion being positioned between the second portion and the base;

each tooth defining a width in a direction parallel to the first longitudinal axis, the maximum width of the second portion being greater than the maximum width of the first portion;

a second body connected to a second portion of the crown body, the second body extending along a second longitudinal axis, the second body having:

a pair of opposed lateral edges; and

a plurality of notches comprising a first set of notches and a second set of notches, the plurality of notches being complimentary in shape to the plurality of teeth;

the second body being selectively engagable with the first body in a first engaged configuration and a second engaged configuration, the number of teeth being received in corresponding ones of the plurality of notches increasing as the second body transitions from the first engagement configuration to the second engagement configuration.

14. The headwear member recited in claim 13, wherein a degree of overlap between the first body and the second body increases as the second body transitions from the first engagement configuration to the second engagement configuration.

15. The headwear member recited in claim 13, wherein the second body includes a first surface, an opposing second surface, a plurality of sidewalls extending between first and second surface, and a plurality of projections extending from respective ones of the plurality of sidewalls.

16. The headwear member recited in claim 13, wherein in a cross sectional plane passing through both the first and second bodies when the second body is in the first engaged configuration, the cross sectional plane being parallel to the first and second longitudinal axes and passing through at least one tooth and at least one notch, the at least one tooth having a first portion width defined by the first portion and a second portion width defined by the second portion, the at least one notch having a maximum width and a minimum width, the minimum width being defined by the projection, the minimum width being greater than the first portion width and less than the second portion width.

17. The headwear member recited in claim 13, wherein the each of the first set of teeth is aligned with a corresponding one of the second set of teeth along a respective axis perpendicular to the first longitudinal axis.

18. The headwear member recited in claim 13, wherein each of the first set of notches is aligned with a corresponding one of the second set of notches along a respective axis perpendicular to the second longitudinal axis.

19. The headwear member recited in claim 13, wherein each tooth includes a triangular periphery.

20. The headwear member recited in claim 13, wherein each tooth includes an arcuate surface.
