HOWARD L. KENNEDY, OF FORT WAYNE INDIANA.

TRAVELERS BAG OR GRIP.

Application filed June 8, 1914.

T all whom it may concern Be it known that I, HOWARD L. KEN- NEDY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Fort lVayne, in the county of Allen and State of Indiana, have invented new and useful Improvements in Travelers Bags or Grips, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

lMly invention relates to a travelers bag or grip, and particularly to one made entirely of metal.

The object of my invention is to provide a sheet metal travelers bag or grip which will be comparatively light and strong, and which rain-proof and dry. This I accomplish the means hereinafter fully described and as particularly set forth in the claims.

In the drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective view of a sheet metal grip embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical transverse section through the same. Figs. 3 and 4 are perspective views of a fragment of said grip showing the construction of the upper corners of the same. Fig. 5 is a sectional view of a detail of said grip.

The body of my improved grip is rectangular in shape and the longer sides A and bottom 13 are made in one piece, and the bottom thereof is corrugated longitudinally.

The ends G of the body have their lower and vertical edges inclosed by and suitably seamed to the end edges of the longitudinal sides and bottom thereof. Above the horizontal plane of the upper edge of the vertical surface of the side the edges of the ends 0 incline upward at corresponding angles and the vertex thereof is truncated, and these upper edges 0 are reinforced by rolling them inward around a wire (Z, substantially as shown in the drawings. The ends C, and, if desired, the longitudinal sides of the body also, may be paneled; the former, preferably, by a rectangular panel below the plane of the top of the longitudinal sides, and a triangular shaped panel above the same, and the latter (the longitudinal sides) by a rectangular panel, substantially as shown in dotted lines in Fig. 1 of the drawings. Any or all of these panels may be omitted, although I much prefer their use as they greatly strengthen the sides of the body and improve the appearance of the grip.

The upper portions of the longitudinal sides of the body of the grip extend beyond Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 22, 1915.

Serial No. 843.675.

the vertical surface thereof and incline upward between and at the same pitch as the upper edges of the ends C of said body to form sheds a. The sheet metal formmg these sheds is bent inward and doubled upon itself, and the edge of this inwardly bent metal terminates at the inner angle of the vertical portions of said sides and the sheds and surrounds a longitudinal wire I) that extends from end to end of the body and greatly strengthens and reinforces the upper edges of the sides thereof. The ends of the doubled sheet metal of the sheds a is split along the line of the bend thereof to form lips e and 7, and one of these lips, 6, laps against the adjacent inner vertical surface of the end 0 and the other, 7, extends over the upper edge of the same and then is bent downward and lapped against the outer surface of the said end opposite lip e, and is riveted to said end and lip e by a suitable rivet e in such manner as to make a very strong and yet simple corner for the body.

The top of my improved grip is closed by two lids or covers E and F that correspond to the sides of the roof of the house to the shape of which said grip was hereinhefore compared. The lids are hinged to the an gle between the longitudinal sides of the body and the sheds by means of several hinge-plates G that are riveted to the inner surfaces of the vertical portions of the sides and extend up through slots in said angles and have their upper edges formed into knuckles H. The lower edges of the covers E are likewise provided with a series of knuckles jthat are in staggered relation to knuckles H and are connected thereto by means of a suitable wire pintle la the ends of which latter are covered and confined by the downwardly flanged end edges on of the covers that lap over the upper inclined edges of the ends of the body.

In order to prevent lateral vibration or displacement of the peaked upper portion of the end-walls 0 when the grip is closed, I provide the underside of cover F with a transverse metal fin n, n, near each end thereof between which and the end edges m the upper inclined edges of the end-walls enter.

The upper edge of one of the covers, E, terminates below the ridge of the top of the body and is strengthened by being rolled back upon itself, and it is provided with suitable sockets K, K, for the counterpart of the guide-boltsv and sockets; they may be of any suitable design. The other cover F extends up over the ridge of the top of the grip and down the opposite incline thereof sufiiciently for its upper edge (which is strengthened by being lapped back upon itself) to lap over the upper edge of the cover E. The guide-bolts Z and the bolt counterpart of the lock are secured to this overlapping edge of cover F, and at the center of length of the flattened ridge of said cover, it is provided with a suitable handle.

What I claim as new is:

1. A sheet metal travelers grip or bag having a body comprising rectangular ver tical longitudinal sides andends that have their upper edges inclined upward from the top of the longitudinal sides toward each other, and inclined covers for said body; the upper portion of each of said longitudinal sides extending upward in an inclined direction under the lower edge portion of one of said covers and doubled back under itself'and terminating in a wire selvaged edge, and having its end edgesfabove the sides split and embracing the adjacent portions of the upper edges of the'ends, and one of said covers having its upper edge extend beyond the ridge of the grip and down the opposite incline and overlapping the top edge of the other cover. 7

2. A sheet metal travelers grip or bag having a body comprising rectangular vertical longitudinal sides and ends that have their upper edges inclinedupward from the top of the longitudinal sides toward each other, and inclined covers for said body; the upper portions of said longitudinal sides eX- tending upward in an inclined direction under the lower edge portion of said covers and one of said covers having its upper edge extend beyond the ridge of the grip and down the opposite incline and overlapping the top edge of the other cover, and having transverse fins depending from its under surface between which and the downwardly flanged edges of said cover the adjacent upper edges of said end-walls, are adaptedto be confined. r

3. A sheet metal travelers grip or bag having a body comprising longitudinal sides and bottom made in one piece of metal and said bottom corrugated, and end walls having panels; and having the upper edges thereof above the plane of said longitudinal sides inclined upward toward each other; one of said cover-shaving its upper edge extend beyond the ridge of the grip and down the.

opposite incline of the other cover, and having transverse fins depending from its under surface between which and the downwardly flanged edges of said cover the adjacent upper edges of said end-walls are adapted to be confined.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 21st day of May, 1914.
