JAMES R. TURNER, OF lCHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

TEMPORARY BINDER.

Specication of Letters Patent.

Patented Mar. 27, 1917.

Application led March 31, 1916. Serial No. 87,957.

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, JAMES R. TURNnR,.a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and' useful Improvements in Temporary Binders, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

v The invention relates to temporary binders and more particularly to binders employed for holding magazines and the like within covers.

The object of the invention is to provide an improved temporary binder which is simple in construction, eiiicient in operation and which can be produced at a low cost.

The invention consists in the several novel features hereinafter set forth and more particularly defined by claims at the conclusion hereof.

In the drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective of a binder embodying the invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section. Fig. 8 is a detailed perspective of the holder bar. Fig. 4 is a perspective of the bracket in which one end of the holder bar is pivoted. Fig. 5 is a perspective of the spring-bracket for releasably holding the other end of the holder bar.

The binder comprises a rigid back 5 to which are iiexibly connected cover sides 6 in manner well understood in the art. At one end of the back an angular rigid strip 7 is secured by a rivet 8, and the projecting portion of this strip is formed into an eye 9 to receive a pin 10 which forms a pivot for a holder-bar 11. Strip 7 is slotted, as at 12, to receive one end of the bar .11, the latter being provided with a hole 13 through which the pin 10 passes. Bar 11 is flat and ts snugly in the slot 12 so that 1t will be measurably firm and stiff against lateral movement. At the other end ofthe back, a spring-strip 14 is secured by a r1vet 15. This strip comprises an upwardly proJecting terminal 15 having a slot 16 with a closed upper end therein adapted to receive and lock the terminal 17 of the holder-bar 11. Said bar is provided with a lug or p rojection 18. The portion 15 of the spring strip 14 may be forced outwardly or longitudinally of the lug 18 on the holder-bar, as indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 2, when the bar is forced toward the back in shiftin the bar 11 into and out of operative position. When the bar and said spring-strip are in operative position, the end'of the portion 15 which closes the outer end of slot 16, engages lug 18 to prevent the strips from being crowded off the bar in such manner that the bar will not be accidentally released.

In practice, it is desirable to secure the magazine as firmly as possible in the binder, and it has been found that when removable wires or bars are used, the magazine is rather loosely held by the bar unless additional devices, such as prongs on the back of the cover, to enter, or a channel to receive the back of the magazine are employed. To avoid the necessity of such devices, and to cause the magazines to be securely held in the binder by the holder-bar above, the latter is provided with one or more tongues 19 which are adapted to pass Vbetween the leaves of the magazines and hold them in close relation to the back, these tongues being adapted to clear the staples 20, usually employed in binding the magazine. By employing these tongues, the magazine will be effectively held against displacement in the binder by a single bar.

The invention thus exemplifies an improved temporary binder which is simple in construction, in which vprovision is made whereby a single holder bar will act to firmly hold the magazine in the binder and in which there is a simple and effective ldisengageable connection between the holderbar and the back.

The invention is not to be understood as restricted to the details set forth, since these may be modified within the scope of the appended claims, without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. In a temporary binder, the' combination of a back, a holder bar, means at one end of the back to which one end of the holderbar is pivoted, and an angular spring strip secured at the other end of the back and provided with a slot having its outer end closed to receive the other end of said bar, said strip being lieXible outwardly or longitudinally of th-e bar to permit the end of the holder-bar to be inserted and removed from the slot.

2. VIn a temporary binder, the combination of a back, a holder-bar, means at one end of the back to which one end of the holderbar is pivoted, and an angular spring strip secured at the other end of the back and provided with a slot having its outer end closed, to receive the other end of said bar, said strip being flexible outwardly or longitudinally of the bar to permit the end of the holder bar to be inserted and removed from the slot, said bar having a lug on its end to arrest the strip.

3. In a temporary binder, the combination of a back, a holder bar of fiat metal, means for movably securing the holder-bar to the back, and an inwardly extending flat tongue on said bar, adapted to pass between the leaves of a book and between the devices employed for securing the leaves of the book together, to secure the back of the book against lateral play on the back.

4. In a temporary binder, the combination of a back, a holder bar of fiat metal, means at one end of the back to which the holder' tween the devices employed for securing the leaves of the book together, to secure the back of the book against lateral play on the back.
