  • Patent number: 11013279
    Abstract: A fastener for a wig having two approximately U-shape members, each configured of a comb teeth fixed piece, and two curved elastic leg portions which extend from both ends of the comb teeth fixed piece. The two approximately U-shape members are connected to each other at a plurality of connecting points located away from each other in a direction that each of the curved elastic leg portions extends under the condition that opening portions of the approximately U-shape members face each other and the curved elastic leg portions are overlapped each other. Accordingly, both members have both a high elastic deformation capability and a high integrity. Therefore, during the operation such that the fastener for a wig are reversed by fingers, if one of the approximately U-shape members is reversed, the other approximately U-shape member is always reversed at the same time, one reversing operation is always enough.

At the end of the floss carrier where it enters a mouth is a funnel, which is wider at the end closest to the handle and narrow toward the tip. The tip is curved so that it can point in between teeth to allow “Super Floss” and expanding floss to be directed between teeth. Fingers are used to direct floss from the dispenser portion of the floss carrier to the funnel portion of the carrier so that the “Super Floss and expanding floss can be then directed into a mouth.
