POCKET-CLIP.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Oct. 14,1913.
Application filed February 19, 1912. Serial No. 678,595.
To all whom 2'25 may concern:
Be it known that I, IVILLIAM L. CHAPMAN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Brooklyn, New York, have invented an Improvement in Pocket-Clips, of which the following description,in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a specification, like numerals on the drawings representing like parts.
The invention relates to attaching-clips for fastening pens and other articles to the edge of a pocket to prevent their dropping out; and it consists in an improvement upon the form of clip shown in Letters Patent of the United States No. 1,016,166 dated J anuary SO, 1912 and granted to Modern Pen Company of New York, N. Y.
The particular object of the invention is to enable the clip shown in the aforesaid patent to be made more cheaply and applied more conveniently than the particular form shown in that patent.
In the drawings accompanying the specification, Figure 1 is a view in front elevation of the improved form of the clip, Fig. 2 is a view of the same in side elevation, Fig. 3 is a view of a piece of metal which has been punched to form the clip, but which is still unbent, Fig. 41 is a view in elevation of a cap of a fountain-pen showing the clip being applied or attached thereto, Fig. 5 is a similar view showing the clip fastened in position, and, Fig. 6 is a sectional view, the plane of the section being indicated by the line 6-6 in Fig. 5.
The clip has what may be termed a springfinger portion 17 and an attaching or body port-ion 15. The spring-finger portion is turned up at the end 18 in order that it may be freely slipped over the edge of the pocket; and the attaching portion has a projection a short distance from the other end 22 which latter is approximately T-shaped. The clip is bent to turn the attaching portion back upon the clip and so that, when attached, the end 18 will bear against the article to which the clip is secured. (See Figs. 2
and 6.) The Whole clip, in its improved form, may thus be stamped out of a piece of sheet metal in a single operation according to the form shown in Fig. 3, and then bent into the form shown in Fig. 2 ready for application to the particular article with which it is to be used.
In attaching the clip, the same procedure is followed as was described in the Letters Patent referred to; that is, the T-end 22 of the clip is inserted into a slot 12 of the pen or other article to Which itis to be applied, and then the clip is swung around until the pro ection 50 springs into a hole or recess 14 in the pen or other article. In the aforesaid Letters Patent, the slot 12 is Wider at one end than at any other part, suggesting somewhat the shape of a key hole; but, in the present case, the slot may be made the same Width throughout on account of the T-shape of the attaching end of the clip. This is an advantage in attaching the clip for the reason that the straight slot is much easier to form than a key-hole slot. In the case of fountain pen-caps, these slots may be burned out with a pyrographic needle, and such method of forming them is rendered much easier where the slots are straight. Moreover, the advantage of stamping the clip out of sheet metal, over the method required to produce the form shown in the aforesaid Letters Patent, will be obvious.
In the specification and claims, the phrase T-shaped is used to refer to a projection on the attaching end of the clip which branches out substantially like the top of a letter T; but it is not intended by this term to confine the projection to the precise shape of the letter T. Moreover, the word pen should be read throughout the specification and claim to refer to any article to which the clip may be attached.
I claim as my invention The combination of a pen, and an attaching clip, the former having a hole and a slot of uniform width, and the latter havinga spring finger and a turned-over portion which terminates in a T-shaped projection In testimony whereof, I have signed my and is provided With another projection adname to this specification, in the presence of 10 jacent to the T-shaped projection, the two subscribing Witnesses. branchin arms of the T-sha 36d aro'ection 5 engaging the under-sides of tiie sldtaild the TL/L CHAPMAN" other projection being held in the hole by Vitnesses: the spring finger, When the clip and pen are ROBERT ELLIOTT, assembled. H. MALCOLM DE \VILD.
Copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the Commissioner of Patents. Washington, D. 0.
