Title (EN) SIZE-ADJUSTABLE FASHION ACCESSORY
(FR) ACCESSOIRE DE MODE À TAILLE AJUSTABLE
Abstract:
(EN) A size-adjustable fashion accessory includes an elongated strap having a plurality of catch features, such as raised or depressed features, disposed at spaced locations along a length of the elongated strap. A retainer is disposed at a first end section of the elongated strap that is configured to receive an opposing second end section of the elongated strap to form a loop configuration. The retainer includes an engagement element that resiliently deforms against at least one of the plurality of catch features upon insertion or removal of the second end section, providing a tactile engagement, such as a click or snap, when adjusting the size of the loop configuration. The size-adjustable fashion accessory may include a decorative charm accessory or the like that may be adapted to engage the elongated strap at various locations along its length or at the retainer.
(FR) L'invention concerne un accessoire de mode à taille ajustable, qui comprend une bande allongée ayant une pluralité d'éléments d'encliquetage, tels que des éléments en relief ou en creux, disposés à des emplacements espacés sur la longueur de la bande allongée. Un élément de retenue est disposé au niveau d'une première partie d'extrémité de la bande allongée qui est configurée pour recevoir une seconde partie d'extrémité opposée de la bande allongée pour former une configuration en boucle. L'élément de retenue comprend un élément de contact qui se déforme élastiquement contre au moins un élément parmi la pluralité d'éléments d'encliquetage pendant l'insertion ou le retrait de la seconde partie d'extrémité, créant un contact tactile, tel qu'un encliquetage ou accrochage, lors de l'ajustement de la taille de la configuration en boucle. L'accessoire de mode à taille ajustable peut comprendre un accessoire de breloque décorative ou analogue qui peut être adapté pour venir en contact avec la bande allongée à divers emplacements sur sa longueur ou au niveau de l'élément de retenue.
