Specification 6f Letters Patent. P t t pm 1918.
epp et a l fl une 13 .7- st 9- ,449,
York, have int ent-ed t new and useful Pencil Attachment for Fountain-Pens, of which.
the following is a specification.
The objecti ,oftlie inyention is to provide a practicable and thoroughly satisfactory means of; onnnga tonntain pen and apencil,
and more especially to provide a compactly disposed pencil'attachn ent for existing p ens. The device .makes use of aclasp such asare ordinarily used, with long dinally extending-clips, for; fastening pens tothe pocket, and unites therewith a small lead holder, which lies-close, along the. pen cap and may be projected beyond the enClthereof for use, or pushed back-into guarded position, being held :in either; position by .the, t'rictional embrace otthe claspsuponjtlie pen. In one form of the invention the pencil element extends oppositely from the clip, so that the movement of the pencil to operative or re.- tracted position is efi'ected by simply sliding the clasp on the pen; and in such construction the clip is not only aloss-preventive safe-guarding both writing instruments but also serves to brace and steady the pencil when the latter is in use, while on the other hand the pencil lends similar support to the clip, making its grip more secure, when the device is in the pocket. A modification may be produced by extending the lead holder at both sides of the clip, and constituting its rear or inner portion the clip; or a smaller device may be made by constructing a memher at one side of the clasp to act as both a pencil and a clip. In cases where the pen is equipped by the manufacturer with a permanently attached clip, the clip portion may be omitted entirely from the clasp.
In the accompanying drawings:
Figure 1 is a side perspective view of one embodiment Fig. 2 is a cross-section at the clasp;
Fig. 3 is a side View of the device applied to a fountain pen and in position for writing with the pencil;
Fig. l is a similar View, showing the pencil claspwithdrawn to normal position;
Fig. 5 is a side perspective View of an alternative construction; and
Fig. 6 is a similar view of a further modification.
The ninnerali designates a fountain Bfill'e s agl'rict onal spr ng clasp collar ot familiar form constructedto' embrace thepen cap. I 11 Elgs. 1450 3 this clasp is shown provided;
with a conrelational clip spring 5, which extends inward along the cap and terminates in aballt, betweenwhichand the sideof the rap the fabric of the pocketis gripped.
Also united with the backof the clasp, that.
is to say its central portion opposite, the opening between its ends, is a tnbe 3 holding mleadl, the forwardportion of thctube being squeeze (l te grip theleadiby. a screw 81? Rencils of this ,siniplecharacter are well; known and are suitable for my purposes, but
oln'iously the penciLlementm-ay be of different or more highly developed construction tdesi d I TllB:p 611Cll. end isnioved into or outot' writing position by slipping the clasp l along thecap, which maybe conyeniently accomplished .by pressure applied by the or finger-nail against the ball 6. When the pencil; isin use it;- is firmly held against slipping by the frictional elastic grip of the clasp upon the pen cap, and steadied against tilting away from. the pen by the action of theclin bearing against the side of the pen cap at a point remote from the clasp. In the carrying position of Fig. e, the pencil element will bear against the pen when the clip is separated from the same by the insertion of the pocket wall, and thus give the clip a firmer hold upon the fabric increasing its eiiiciency.
in Fig. 5 similar parts are designated by the same reference numerals with supercharacter a. In this construction a longer lead-holding tube 3 is possible, the same be ing extended rearward of the clasp as shown at 5 This portion forms the clip, its rear end being provided with a ball 6 The clasp i preferably has its back portion curved around the intermediate portion of the pencil tube, to which it is united by soldering or otherwise.
Fig. 6 shows a form having the special advantage of smallness. A short pencil element 3" extends entirely or mainly at one side of the clasp, and also forms the clip, for which purpose the outer end of its cap 2 is constructed with a ball 6 To brace the pencil a spur or foot 5 may project a short distance at the opposite side of the clasp to bear against the side of the pen. When the pen is in the pocket, this form of pencil-clip extends inward, or downward, along the cap. When the pencil is to be used for Writing, the clasp is slid off the end of the cap, reversed, and pushed back on again,'lea ing the pencil end projecting the desired distance.
For pens which are already provided with permanent clips, the clip feature of my device is unnecessary. A suitable construction for such instances can be produced by merely omitting the ball 6 from Fig. 6. The opening between the ends of the clasp permits it to pass freely by the attired clips of such pens.
While the invention is more particularly an attachment to be applied by the merit will be appreciated that it need not in all instances be so limited.
What I claim as ncwis:
1. A fountain pen attachment comprising a spring collar having free ends, and a pencil member comprising a small diameter tubular lead holder rigidly united integrally with the central part of the collar and extending longitudinally therefrom in position.
to lie close along the pen, the lead holder projecting laterally only slightly beyond the lines of the collar.
2. A fountainpen attachment comprising a slidable clasp adapted to embrace the pen,
1,eee,ees
a small diameter tubular lead holder united to the clasp and extending longitudinally in position. to lie along the pen, and meanseX- tending from the clasp oppositely from the Writing end of the lead holder so as to bear upon the side of the pen to steady the lead holder When in use.
3. A fountain pen attachment comprising a clasp to embrace the pen,,a small diameter tubular lead holder permanently united With and having its Writing end extending longitudinally in one direction from the clasp, and a pocket clip portion extending in the opposite direction and adapted to bear upon the side of the pen to steady the lead holder when in use.
l. A fountain pen attaclnnent comprising a slidable clasp collar having free ends, a small diameter tubular pencil holder united with and extending longitudinally from the central partof the clasp collar in position to lie along the pen, and a pocket clip eX- tending in the opposite direction.
5. The combination with a fountain pen,
of a slidable support upon the pen cap bearing a small diameter tubular lead holder and a pocket clip in oppositely projecting relation, the pocket clip bracing the lead holder when the latter is projected for use. JENS MARTINUS LARSEN.
