CLIFFORD D. YOUNG, OF WAYLAN'D, NEW YORK.
PACKAGE-TIE.
To all whom may concern:
Be it known that I, CLIFFORD D. YoUNG, a citizen of the United States residing at Wayland, in the county of flteuben and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Package- Ties, of which the following is a specification. I
My invention relates to package ties, and more particularly to a device for securing a package or a number of packages together in order that they may be readily transmitted in the mails.
The primary object of my inventionresides in. the provision of a device of the class above described, embodying a body with which is associated flexible means for engagement with a package or a number of packages for securing or tying packages into a compact form.
Another object of my invention resides in the provision of a novel body or supporting means for the flexible means for facilitating the application of the flexible means on a package or a number of packages, and for retaining the flexible means in engagement therewith,
A still further object of my invention resides in the provision of a device of the character described that is simple in construction, eflicient in operation and one that can be manufactured and placed on the market at a minimum cost.
Other objects as well as the nature, characteristic features and scope of my invention will be more readily understood from the following description taken in connec tion with the accompanying drawings and pointed out in the claim, forming a part of this specification.
In the drawings Figure 1 is an elevational view of a number of envelops arranged in a compact form, through the medium of my improved package tie.
Fig. 2 is a top plan view of my invention, associated with a number of envelops.
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the body or supporting means of this invention.
Referring more particularly to the drawings in which similar reference numerals designate like and corresponding parts, throughout the various views, I provide preferably, though not necessarily, a plurality of envelops 1, arranged in superposed relation with each other, and removably Specification of Letters Patent. Patantcedl Apr. 23, 1918.
Application filed October 28, 1915.
Serial No. 5 3,416.
the plate being curved upwardly, to provide a retaining flange 3, said flange having. an opening 4 therein, to serve a purpose to be hereinafter described.
The plate is struck up intermediate its ends to provide a book 5, the end of the book being bent and arranged in spaced relation and parallel relation to the plate, to facilitate the retaining of the flexible means thereon. The resilient tongue '6, having pointed end 7, is struck up from the plate adjacent the end opposite the end on which the flange is provided, said tongue extending in the direction opposite to the direction which the pointed end of the hook extends, and in a similar direction to the flange, for a purpose to be hereinafter described. To aid in the maintenance of the plate in position against a package, or asshown in the drawings against one or a number of envelops, I have formed integrally with one side adjacent the plate, approximately opposite the portion of the plate between the hook and the tongue, a laterally extending thumb piece 8.
Associated with the plate and arranged about the number of envelops is my improved flexible means. In this instance, the flexible means consist preferably of a piece of twine 9, one end of which is passed through the opening 4 in the flange and connected to the plate through the medium of a knot 10, which is adapted to bear against the flange 3 when it is associated with a number of envelops and with the plate.
When applying this improved package tie to a number of envelops, the plate with the flexible means attached thereto, is arranged transversely upon the top envelop, and held thereon with the assistance of a thumb, preferably of the left hand (not shown) of the user, while the envelops are held by the left hand. Theright hand (not shown) of the user is engaged upon the twine, and the latter looped transversely about the envelops and engaged in the hook 5 as indicated by the numeral 11 and then looped longitudinally about the envelops as indicated by the numeral 12, and wrapped about the hook as indicated by the numeral 13. The portion innnediately continuing therefrom is extend ed upwardly, and being arranged beneath the resilient tongue .7, the latter serving to frictionally engage the free end of the cord and thereby prevent accidental displacement of the envelops. The extreme free end of the cord or twine is knotted as at 14, to further aid in the maintenance of the flexible means in engagement of the tongue, should the flexible means for any reason slip. The package thus secured may be readily transmitted through the mails, and when it reaches its destination, it can be readily and quickly disengaged from the plate, where it can be subsequently used for accomplishing a similar purpose.
Although I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, I desire it to be understood that I am not to be limited to the exact details shown; however, I desire that great stress may be laid upon the arrangement of the plate and the flexible means connected to the plate, as well as the novel and efficient means of the Plate for facilitating the engagement of the flexible means with the plate, while the flexible means is being applied to package or packa es; 7
From the above description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, it can easily be seen that I have provided a device that is simple in construction, containing but a few simple parts that can be cheaply manufactured and assembled, and
Having thus fully described my invention,
what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
As a new article of manufacture, a package tie having its body portion formed from a single piece of material having one of its ends recurved to form a twine engaging end, a projection extending laterally from the body intermediate of its ends and constituting a thumb piece, and struck up tongues from the body portion, one tongue being substantially rigid while the other is resilient, said tongues cooperating with the recurved end to firmly and detachably hold a flexible element around a package.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
