PACKAGE TIE.
APPLICATION FILED JAM-1. 19H.
Patented Oct. '30, 1917.
. Witnesses Attorneys JOEL aERRE L, or SEATTLE," WASHINGTON.
' P CKAGE-Tin.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOEL TERRELL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Seattle, in the county of King and State of VVashington, have invented a new and useful Package-Tie, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to package ties, one of its objects being to provide a simple, con1- pact and eflicient tie device which can be' used over and over again, thereby to effect a considerable saving of cord such as used, for example, in the packaging of mail and for like purposes.
Another object is to provide a tie device which is cheap to manufacture, can be readily manipulated, and which will securely hold a length of twine or the like in position upon a package to which it is applied.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of constructionhereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, can be made Within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit ofv the invention.
In the accompanying drawings the preferred form of the invention has been shown.
In said drawings:
Figure 1 is a plan view of the tie device.
Fig. 2 is a side elevation thereof.
Fig. 3 is a section on line,33 Fig. 1.
Fig. l is a section on line l l Fig. 1.
Referring to the figures by characters of reference 1 and 2 designate parallel lengths of wire produced by doubling a single length of spring wire so that the portions 1 and 2 willlie parallel and form a shank. The portion 2 is extended beyond one end of the wire portion 1 and is bent to form an eye 3 terminating in a loop 4 which extends around the portion 1 and thus holds the two parts of the stem or shank together at one end. The eye 3 has an extension loop 3' and constitutes a finger piece as will be hereinafter pointed out. Thefolded portion of the wire is bent to form an ogee curve as indicated at 5, said curved portion being Specification of lietters Patent.
bent outwardly, downwardly and inwardly portion of the head 6 overhanging one end of the shank has its side portions spread apart as at 8 thus to produce-guides for directing twine into the space between the Patented 00 11.3(),1917. Application filed January 4, 1917. Serial 'No. 140,575. 1 i
jaws formed by the side portions of the head. a
The device herein described is to be used in connection with a length of twine indi cated generally at T. The'eye 3 upon the package to be tied by pressing thereagainst the thumb of the hand holding the package. The tie T which has a knotted end seated in loop 3 is then wrapped longitudinally about the package and passed laterally around the portion 5 and thence transversely about the package, after which the tie is wrapped about the portion 5 and then inserted between the diverging portions 8 of the head and pressed downwardly between thetsides of the head which will tightly grip the twine and prevent it from slipping. Consequently, the twine will be held securely about the package without tying and can be quickly disengaged simply by reversing the foregoing operation. Therefore, the same tie and fastener can be used over and over again.
By providingthe loop extension 3 it is not necessary to tie the twine to the eye 3. Instead a knot can be provided at the end of the tie and said end portion of the tie inserted into the extension 3.
What is claimed is 1. A tie fastener formed in a single length of wire bent to provide a loop, an eye extending from the loop and having an extension for sliding engagement by the knotted end ofa cord, there being a shank member extending from the eye and through the loop and another shank member formed of one end portion of the wire and having its free terminals seated in the loop, both of 2.- A; tie fastener including a shank, a
