FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0002] This invention relates to the field of sports equipment for the martial arts, and more specifically to a martial arts belt display.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0003] Martial arts belt display's currently on the market today do not wrap and mount their belts in a continuous circle. A belt display which display's belts around a center mounting spool is seemingly nonexistent.

[0004] The main concept surrounding this type of belt display design is to display martial arts belts in a continuous circle around a center mounting spool. The belt display is designed to display numerous belts in a particular order of progression in rank as is indicated by a specific martial art system\style or school.

[0005] Another goal of this belt display design is to give the consumer a new, improved and unique product that is both cost effective and is a clear improvement of similar products on the market today.

[0006] The term "karate belt" or "martial art belt" will be used generically to indicate all systems or styles of martial arts such as Kenpo, Tae kwon do, Kung-fu, Jui-jitsu, aikido, karate, etc. which use this typo of belt. The term "belt" can also be used to describe sports competition awards, championship title belts or commemorative honorary belts and awards.

[0007] Said martial art belts will be wrapped around a center wooden mounting spool fastening each belt with the belt ends. Said martial art belt display will also provide a center wooden flat round interchangeable display disc which mounts to the center of the spool of said belt display for attaching pictures, logos, patches or any other ornamentation.

[0008] It is to be understood that while certain forms of the invention are illustrated, it is not to be limited to the specific form or arrangement of parts herein described and shown. It will be apparent that various changes may be made without departing from the scope of the invention and the invention is not to be considered limited to what is shown described in the specification and drawings.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0009] It is an objective of the invention to provide a martial arts belt display which said belts are wrapped around a center wooden mounting spool which is mounted to a wall or flat surface.

[0010] It is an objective of the invention wherein a flat wooden round interchangeable display disc will accommodate a photo, logo, name, patch, or achievement which will attach to center wooden mounting spool of said belt display.

[0011] It is another objective of the invention to accommodate the various sizes of martial art belts being displayed.

[0012] It is an objective of the invention wherein a mounting screw but not limited to other mounting hardware will be used to mount said center wooden mounting spool to a wall or any flat surface.

[0013] In accordance with the above objectives, the present invention discloses a diverse belt display design which through attachment of martial arts belts and said center wooden display disc generally and sufficiently displays various sizes of martial arts belts.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF DRAWINGS

[0014] Page 1, of the drawings illustrates the front view perspective of the design of said martial art belt display in an assembled configuration.

[0015] FIG. 1, illustrates the front elevational view of the said center wooden interchangeable display disc shown with said center wooden mounting spool of the said martial art belt display of FIG. 3-8.

[0016] FIG. 2, illustrates a cutaway elevational side view of the recessed holes of said center wooden mounting spool of the said martial art belt display of FIG. 3-1.

[0017] FIG. 3, illustrates a top perspective view of said center wooden mounting spool showing the flat steel round washers for the top and bottom of the said martial art belt display.

[0019] FIG. 4A, illustrates the side elevational view of the said center wooden interchangeable display disc of the said martial art bolt display of FIG. 4.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0020] Although the invention will be described in terms of a specific embodiment it will be readily apparent that many more various modifications, rearrangements, and substitutions can be made to the model type without departing from the conceptual scope of the invention.

[0021] In one embodiment FIG. 3-1, and FIG. 4-6, of said invention in an assembled configuration can be constructed using wood, metal, plastic, or bamboo.

[0022] In another embodiment FIG. 3-1, and FIG. 4-6, of said invention in an assembled configuration can be painted any color or finished with a variety of wood stains or enamel, clear coat polyurethane, or left "natural" (unfinished). The martial art belt display is designed to mount on a wall or any flat surface.

[0023] Further, in yet another embodiment FIG. 1-6, Show's the best top elevational view of the center wooden interchangeable display disc FIG. 4-6, installed over the center of said center wooden mounting spool FIG. 3-1.

[0024] In accordance with yet another embodiment FIG. 4-6, said center wooden interchangeable display disc can be attached using hook and loop adhesive (Velcro) or any other product that allows said center wooden interchangeable display disc FIG. 4-6, to be removed easily.

[0025] In one embodiment FIG. 3-1, said center wooden mounting spool can be mounted to a wall or any flat surface using a screw, nail, or any hardware that allows FIG. 3-1, to mount securely by inserting mounting hardware into FIG. 3-3, and then mounting said center wooden mounting spool to a wall or any flat surface.

[0026] In another embodiment FIG. 2-2, shows the side cutaway view of two recessed holes that will receive round steel flat washers FIG. 3-4,5, to give said center wooden mounting spool FIG. 3-1, strength for mounting purposes. In this particular embodiment FIG. 3-4,5, said round steel fiat washers can be constructed out of metal, plastic, resin, or any material that gives FIG. 3-1, strength for mounting purposes. FIG. 3-4,5, said round steel flat washers may be a different size and shape than what is shown.

[0027] In accordance with another embodiment of the present invention, once FIG. 3-1, said center wooden mounting spool is mounted and said center wooden interchangeable display disc FIG. 4-6, is attached to the front of FIG. 3-8.

[0028] Further, in yet another embodiment FIG. 4-6, said center wooden interchangeable display disc gives the present invention functionality in that it's removable from FIG. 3-8, said center wooden mounting spool. Other FIG. 4-6, said center wooden interchangeable display discs can be added to display various ornamentation because of the easy removal of FIG. 4-6, using hook and loop (Velcro)making this present invention uniquely different than what's on the market today.
