BINDER.

1910. 1,006,584. Patented 001. 24, 1911.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

DANIEL W. MILLSAIS, 0F MARION, SOUTH CAROLINA, ASSIGNOR TO THE MILLSAPS COMPANY, OF MARION, SOUTH CAROLINA, A CORPORATION OF SOUTH CAROLINA.

BINDER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed. June 4, 1910.

Patented Oct. 24., 1911.

Serial No. 565,099.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, DANIEL W. MILLsAPs, a citizen of the United States, and resident of Marion, in the county of Marion and State of South Carolina, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Binders, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to binders, and particularly to one which is adapted to receive and hold packages of letters. Its object is to produce a binder which is simple and neat in construction, which may be easily and quickly applied to and removed from the package, and which Will securely and firmly hold packages of letters of various size.

With this object in view, the invention consists in the novel features of construction which will be apparent from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing.

In the drawings: Figure 1 is a plan view of a package of letters having my binder partially applied thereto; Fig. 2 is a side view of the package showing the joint of the binder in section; and Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the binder removed.

As will be seen by reference to these drawings, my binder is made up of two straps which are adapted to pass around the package at right angles to each other, and which straps are secured together at the sides. These straps are made of flat elastic bands, and for this purpose I preferably use the well known material made up of small longitudinal bands of rubber covered with cloth. The strap 1 which extends transversely around the package is preferably made in one piece, as shown particularly in Fig. 3, so that the two loops on opposite sides will always stand in line with each other. The loop 2 of the longitudinal strap is secured to the transverse strap 1 at its ends in any suitable way, and the connection is preferably such as to maintain this in its position at right angles to the strap 1. In the drawings, I have shown the pin 3 having flat heads passing through the parts for the purpose of holding them together, and in addition the stitches 4 may be used. The loop 5 of the longitudinal strap has its ends placed outside of the material of the other loops at its ends where it is secured by the pins 3. These pins pass loosely through openings in the ends of the loop 5, whereby that loop can be turned to one side, as shown in Fig. 1, without twisting or bending the loop at all. It will be observed that this loop in turning passes over the outside of the strap 1, so that it may be turned entirely out of the way of the letters which are to be inserted, and it will remain in the position to which it is turned, without being manually held in that position. The pivot pins 3 are made with flat heads so that when the binder is in position on a package of letters they will not project materially above the surface so as to be in the way, and consequently packages of letters held by my binders may be placed one on top of the other. The straps are made of such length that they will have to be stretched somewhat in order to insert any package of letters, and thus the tension will make the binder fit the package closely and the pivot pins will to some extent sink be low the surrounding surface of the package, so as not to project materially therefrom.

In operation, the person using the binder, as shown in Fig. 3, will insert his thumb and finger through the strap 1 on the side next to the loop 2, turning the loop 5 to one side, as shown in Fig. 1. The package of letters 6 is then inserted and pushed down until the end of the package fills the loop 2, the strap 1 being stretched in this operation by first inserting one corner of the package on one side and exerting a slight pull on the strap by the thumb and finger on the opposite side. When the package has been inserted as described, the parts are as shown in Fig. 1, and the loop 5 can then be easily and quickly brought to the position shown in dotted lines in this figure by inserting the thumb in it, and stretching it until it passes over the corner of the package. The operation of inserting the package is practically instantaneous and the elasticity of the binder makes it at once clamp the package securely and firmly, and there is no chance that it will accidentally come off.

The removal of the package is equally as easy and simple. The strap 5 is turned to the position shown in Fig. 1 by a simple -said parts being pivotally connected to the other'part, whereby it may be turned to one side in flat condition without twisting or bending. V

2. A package binder for letters and the secured together at 0 like, comprising fiat elastic straps adapted to extend around and closely embrace the package at right angles to each other and four loops extending 1n oppositely disposed pairs from the points of connection, one of said loops being pivotally secured to the others whereby it may be turned to one side without bending or twistin so as to permit the insertion of the package.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
