SELF GROOMING STICK

Universal Scrapping Handling System and Self-Grooming Stick

The present invention discloses a universal scrapping handling system and self-grooming stick that is designed to assist the user in scrapping and removing unnecessary hair from the body. The stick comprises soft nylon plastic brush fibers or bristle positioned at one end of the device and disposable conventional razor at the other end connected by brush handle. Other components are made of polypropene and are housed in between the brush and razor. Whereas the brush fibre is fixed to the brush cup, the razor is attached to the razor holder cup which is connected to a silicon razor holder that supports the razor with the aid of a locking button at the rear end of the stick. The razor holder is crafted to rotate 125 degrees from the centre to the left and right hand sides to maximize the efficiency of the razor that is utilized in removing unnecessary hair from the body.

BACKGROUNG ART

Grooming includes the things that you do to make your appearance clean and neat, for example brushing your hair, or the things that you do to keep an animal's hair or fur clean and neat: She pays great attention to make-up, grooming and clothes. Over time people have practiced daily self-care activities to keep them clean and hygiene. Its invention date with Swauger family (boys josh and Zach) initially starting with Swauger's homemade vision in or around 2012 when 1st homemade version was created by them. Kurt created this product once his boys said they would no longer shave the three hairs irritated him on his back – where he simply could not reach. So, he needed some sort of arm extension that would hold a razor and then also be able to adjust razor and blade to different angles for shaving in that awkward position. It stared at that time with Tape, a wooden ruler, and a disposal razor, it grew into tape, a back scrubber, and the wheel part of a protractor (which got the angles).

Devices are known for grooming the hair, fur, or coat of animals, commonly household pets such as a cat or a dog but also for other non-household animals such as horses. One of the purposes of such devices is to remove loose hair or de-shed, for example to reduce shedding in which the loose hair would otherwise fall off in unwanted places, such as around the house. Such devices can also be used to de-tangle hair for purposes of improving appearance and comfort. Some of these devices may also trim or cut non-loose hair. One group of currently available devices resemble a human hair brush or rake on a stick having combing elements mounted together on one end of an elongated handle to form a pet engaging portion. 2
A problem with such currently available de-shedding devices is that after a few strokes over the coat of the animal with such devices, the buildup of removed hair must be manually teased from the comb or the efficiency of the grooming process will diminish. Another problem with currently available de-shedding devices is that they do not contain a bag, compartment, or the like, to store removed hair during a grooming session, other than at the base of the teeth or on the combing elements themselves. Typically this involves manually pulling hair or fur from the teeth projecting from the comb. In addition, if the comb teeth or brush bristles are buried under already removed hair, they cannot pick up and pull additional loose strands of hair as easily. Further, cleaning the comb or brush manually between strokes slows down the grooming process, and creates the opportunity for a live animal, such as a cat, dog, horse, sheep, for example, to run away when the brushing stops while the buildup of hair is removed by the groomer.

Some de-shedding devices also include a blade region, for example at the base of the teeth. While the blade and teeth of de-shedders are generally not sharp enough to cut or clip hair, they can nonetheless have edges sharp enough such that pulling the hair off manually creates risk of injury for the operator's fingers and hands. In addition, if the comb's teeth are buried under already removed hair, they cannot pick up and pull additional loose strands of hair as easily. Another group of currently available devices resemble a comb combined with a blade or razor at the base of the comb, which may or may not be sharp enough to cut for clipping in addition to de-shedding and de-tangling. An additional problem with some of these grooming devices that makes them less than optimal is that they present a safety hazard, with the animal to be groomed potentially exposed to the sharper elements. If the groomer is not careful, is grooming quickly, or is applying too much pressure to the comb, the sharp projecting teeth or blade edges at the base of the comb may pierce the skin resulting in a negative experience for the animal. This may make the animal afraid of the grooming device such that it is psychologically conditioned to avoid future grooming sessions. It would be desirable to provide a self-ejecting, stripping type of grooming device, which can be operated to rapidly collect loose hair and eject the collected hair to allow the collected hair to fall to the ground, for rapidly grooming the hair, fur, or coat of animals or other objects, as well as human hair. It also would be desirable to provide such a grooming device with one or more sets of hair collecting elements and one or more hair dislodging, cover or scraper elements movably positioned adjacent to the one or more sets of hair collecting elements and configured to dislodge hair collected on the one or more sets of hair collecting elements when the one or more hair 3 dislodging, cover or scraper elements are moved adjacent to the one or more sets hair collecting elements, with the one or more hair dislodging, cover or scraper elements biased to sheathe the one or more sets hair collecting elements, in order to uncover the one or more sets of hair collecting elements of the grooming device to a limited extent when the grooming device is pressed to engage hair to be groomed, and to automatically eject hair collected on the one or more sets of hair collecting elements when the one or more hair dislodging, cover or scraper elements are released. It also would be desirable to provide a handle shield that could optionally be used to protect the user, while still allowing auto-ejection of collected hair. It also would be desirable to provide an optional vacuum hose attachment to allow rapid removal of collected hair. It also would be desirable to provide a grooming device for removing and collecting loose hair from an animal having a furry coat or other object to be groomed. The present invention meets these and other needs. The US patent number US10492467B2 that was filed in 2012 by II John Robert Harris discloses a grooming device that includes hair collectors and a scraper. The scraper uncovers the hair collectors when the device is pressed down for use, and scrapes the hair collectors to eject hair collected when the device is released. Ejection of collected hair can also be controlled manually. A collection chamber may be provided, and multiple combs may be mounted on a rotatable dowel that recede within the rotatable barrel, or with sliding plates around and offset from the dowel as the dowel is rotated. A door or window on a surface of the collection chamber can be opened to empty the chamber of collected hair. Another US patent number US5842440A that was filed in 1996 by Bell, Jr.; Richard E describes an  animal self-grooming aids, especially felines, whereby they can brush their fur or hair and can exercise or sharpen their claws. Such animal can stand at least partly on a base adapted to be clawed and with head or body at the level of a brush adapted to be rubbed. The brush is removable for cleaning or manually brushing the animal, and the mat is removable for replacement when thoroughly clawed. Today’s invention uses those similar design strategies and uses plastic (PPI) Plastic molding injection process to create the extended arm, an axil mechanism (at end of arm) that can rotate 360 degrees, a locking and release mechanism that will lock the setting (the angle of the axil) into position, and a universal silicone filled capsule that will except and release and number of (and many different sizes of) disposal and non-disposals razors and with the adaptor (convertor 4 mechanism) can also engage (hold + release) a number of specialty styled razors that are designed in a unique style, such as: oval, square rectangle, and other shaped razors.
