ABSTRACT:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
1. Field of the Invention
The present invention relates generally to novelty caps and more specifically to novelty caps having areas which may be opened or detached to mimic an open, retractable roof stadium.
2. Discussion of the Prior Art
Currently, it appears that novelty caps which have areas that open-up to mimic an open, retractable roof stadium do not exist. Novelty hats with openable areas would probably be of interest to sports fans who buy novelty sports items to show their enthusiasm for a particular sports team.
Accordingly, there is a clearly felt need in the art for novelty hats with areas that open-up to mimic retractable roof stadiums.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The present invention provides a novelty cap with areas which may be detached or opened. According to the present invention, a novelty cap with an open area includes a cap base, a first pivot cover, a second pivot cover, and a release latch. The first pivot cover is preferably pivotally attached to a front and rear of the cap base. The second pivot cover is pivotally attached to the front and rear of the cap base, adjacent the first pivot cover. The release latch is preferably mounted to one of the pivot covers. Pressing down on the release latch allows both pivot covers to pivot downward and reveal an opening in the top of the novelty cap with an openable area. A pop-up sign may also be attached to an inside front of the cap base.
A novelty cap with openable areas includes a cap body, a first detachable flap, and a second detachable flap. Two openings are preferably formed in a top of the cap body. One end of the first detachable flap is attached to a bottom side of a first opening and one end of the second detachable flap is attached to a bottom side of a second opening. The other end of the first detachable flap is releasably attached to a top side of the first opening and the other end of the second detachable flap is releasably attached to a top side of the second opening.
Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to provide a novelty cap with openable areas which may mimic a retractable roof stadium which has been opened.
These and additional objects, advantages, features and benefits of the present invention will become apparent from the following specification.
