HEADGEAR IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM
1. A headgear identification system comprising:
- a cover having a body with the outer edge thereof curved back toward the center forming a wall; and
the wall having a lip thereon;
at least one indicia on the top of the body of the cover;
wherein the cover is secured to the button of cap via the lip on the wall.
A headgear identification enables a user to quickly identify their personal cap or hat among others of similar or identical appearance. A cover is fitted over the button of the cap and carries markings, colors or other identification means to allow for personalization of the cap. The cover also could attach to other features of other types of headgear in a similar fashion.

The present invention relates generally to headgear systems, and more specifically, to systems and methods of differentiating or personalizing baseball caps.
Headgear systems are well known in the art and are effective means to protect the head, face and other nearby areas from injury, provide aesthetic expression or team identification. For example,
One of the problems commonly associated with cap 101 is its limited efficiency. For example, when a baseball team enters the dugout it is common for the players to remove their caps 101 and place them on benches, hooks or the like. When it is time to exit the dugout the players must determine which cap is theirs and while names are often written on the inside of the caps, each cap must be evaluated to identify the owner causing delays in the game, or use of another players cap 101.
Accordingly, although great strides have been made in the area of baseball caps and other headgears systems, many shortcomings remain.
The novel features believed characteristic of the embodiments of the present application are set forth in the appended claims. However, the embodiments themselves, as well as a preferred mode of use, and further objectives and advantages thereof, will best be understood by reference to the following detailed description when read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, wherein:
While the system and method of use of the present application is susceptible to various modifications and alternative forms, specific embodiments thereof have been shown by way of example in the drawings and are herein described in detail. It should be understood, however, that the description herein of specific embodiments is not intended to limit the invention to the particular embodiment disclosed, but on the contrary, the intention is to cover all modifications, equivalents, and alternatives falling within the spirit and scope of the present application as defined by the appended claims.
Illustrative embodiments of the system and method of use of the present application are provided below. It will of course be appreciated that in the development of any actual embodiment, numerous implementation-specific decisions will be made to achieve the developer'"'"'s specific goals, such as compliance with system-related and business-related constraints, which will vary from one implementation to another. Moreover, it will be appreciated that such a development effort might be complex and time-consuming, but would nevertheless be a routine undertaking for those of ordinary skill in the art having the benefit of this disclosure.
The system and method of use in accordance with the present application overcomes one or more of the above-discussed problems commonly associated with conventional baseball caps. Specifically, the invention of the present application enables the quick identification of a user'"'"'s cap without impacting the overall appearance of the cap. This and other unique features of the system and method of use are discussed below and illustrated in the accompanying drawings.
The system and method of use will be understood, both as to its structure and operation, from the accompanying drawings, taken in conjunction with the accompanying description. Several embodiments of the system are presented herein. It should be understood that various components, parts, and features of the different embodiments may be combined together and/or interchanged with one another, all of which are within the scope of the present application, even though not all variations and particular embodiments are shown in the drawings. It should also be understood that the mixing and matching of features, elements, and/or functions between various embodiments is expressly contemplated herein so that one of ordinary skill in the art would appreciate from this disclosure that the features, elements, and/or functions of one embodiment may be incorporated into another embodiment as appropriate, unless described otherwise.
The preferred embodiment herein described is not intended to be exhaustive or to limit the invention to the precise form disclosed. It is chosen and described to explain the principles of the invention and its application and practical use to enable others skilled in the art to follow its teachings.
Referring now to the drawings wherein like reference characters identify corresponding or similar elements throughout the several views,
In the contemplated embodiment, system 201 includes a cover 203 configured to fit over the button 109 of a baseball cap 101 as indicated by motion A. The cover 203, as depicted in
Referring now to
In use, a unique or individualized indicia 401 is selected for each user and attached to the cover 203. The cover 203 is then placed over and pressed down on the button 109. Each cap 101 is now easily identifiable when next to other similar or identical caps.
It should be appreciated that one of the unique features believed characteristic of the present application is that indicia 401 is adaptable or customizable for each user so that the unique covers 203 are attached to identical caps.
Referring now to
It is further contemplated that in an alternative embodiment, as depicted by
The particular embodiments disclosed above are illustrative only, as the embodiments may be modified and practiced in different but equivalent manners apparent to those skilled in the art having the benefit of the teachings herein. It is therefore evident that the particular embodiments disclosed above may be altered or modified, and all such variations are considered within the scope and spirit of the application. Accordingly, the protection sought herein is as set forth in the description. Although the present embodiments are shown above, they are not limited to just these embodiments, but are amenable to various changes and modifications without departing from the spirit thereof.
