On this day in 1908, Perry A. Hudson was granted U.S. Patent No. 886,215 for a BELT FASTENER.

The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved belt fastener, which is simple and durable in construction and arranged to securely fasten the ends of the belt together, without danger of tearing the belt material and without producing undesirable thicknesses or projections on either face of the belt, thus allowing the passing of the belt with either face over the pulleys.

The invention consists of novel features and parts and combinations of the same.
