Im rovements in Package-Ties, of which the,
. N T D 'srAtrns ATE EPIC-E LEANIZER i MAYNE; or writt n. GEORGIA- To. allwhom it may concern:
Be it known that I, LEANDER M. MAYNE, a citizen of the United States, residing at finder, in the county of Barrow and State of Georgia, have invented new and useful fol owing is a specification.
The present invention contemplates generally improvements in that class of inventions'known as buckles, buttons and clasps, and more partcularly has reference to a p ag iea It is the primary aim and object of this invention to provide a device of the above character designed for use in conjunction ,witha piece of cord for securely fastening the cord, subsequently to the wrapping of the cord about the package of, letters. or
the bundle, and serves to securely hold the cord while the package is being transmitted, and in addition permits of the ready release of the cordwheni it is desired to untie the package.
More particularly this invention embraces the provision of a device of the above mentioned character whereinthe body is suitably reinforced, while the reinforcement in turn serves to also brace the spring retaining 1 nember.
Among the other aims and objects of this invention may be; recited the provision of a device of the character mentioned wherein the parts are few, theconstruction simple, the cost of production low and the efficiency high.
Other improvements and novel details in the construction and arrangement of the various parts of the apparatus will be brought out more in detail in the descrip tion to follow, which for a clear understanding' of the invention should be considered in connection with the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, and wherein is disclosed for the purpose of illustration a convenient and satisfactory embodiment of the invention. It is to be noted in this connection that minor changes in the construction and arrangement of parts may be made without departing from the principle of operation of the various parts. I
The invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which:
Figure l is a perspective view of the device when in use.

PACKAGE-TIE.
Serial No. 207,291.
Fig. 2 is. a topplan View of the package.
Similar characters of reference are employed in all of the above described. views, to indicate corresponding parts.
Referring now, more particularly, to the accompanying drawings, there is provided a plate; or body l formed of suitable metal,- and being preferably of rectangular config uration, and also provided near its respec'} tive extremities with openings: 2 and 3,
while mountedin the opening 3. is an eyelet 4. The opening 2 serves, as a means for hanging a plural ty of dev ces on a suitable support, such as a nail, not shown, while a cord 5 is designed to have one end securedthroughthe eyelet and the other opening. Theplate or bodyis also formed on its up.-
per face and near the side edges, with spaced; parallel and longitudinally extending rem-.
forcing ribs 6 preferably pressed in the plate when the plate is being out Also formed longitudinally and medially on the plate on the upper surface thereof is another rib 7 for the purpose which will presently appear. The respective ends of all of the ribs are tapered to points 9 while the ribs 6 terminate short of the end edges and the ribs 7 terminate short of the openings 2 and 3, as is apparent upon reference to Fig. 1 of the drawings.
@ooperating with the medial ribs 7 is an immediate retaining spring member indicated in its entirety by the numeral 10. This springmember is preferably formed from a single piece of resilient wire which wardly as indicated by the numeral 14 at points near the inner ends and in proximity to one end of the ribs 7, while the portions 15 continuing from the ofi-set portions are gradually inclined toward the plate and abut the plate .as indicated at a point 16 near the opposite end of the rib 7. Finally the arms are bent upwardly to provide a guide which cooperates with the adjacent pointed end of the rib, the upwardly extending portions 17 of the arms of course being positioned approximately opposite the pointed ends 9 of the rib as indicated in the drawing.
In use the plate is positioned upon the top of the package while the cord 5 is extended longitudinally about the package and is passed beneath the spring and drawn inwardly between the arms and the ribs 7 so as to be bound between the offset portions Hand the outer surfaces of the ribs. This binding engagement of the cord is accomplished of course by extending a portion of the cord transversely between the arms 11 andthe ribs 7. The cord is now extended transversely about thepackage and is again passed between the arms 11 and the rib and drawn inwardly so'as to be frietionally retained'by the arms and the rib as indicated I in Fig.1. The package of course is now ready to be transmitted and when it reaches its destination, it may be untied by removing the cord from between the-arms and the removing the transversely extending loop and again removing the cord from between the arms and the rib.
It isbelieved that in View of the foregoing descriptionthat a further detailed description of the operation of the invention is entirely unnecessary. Likewise it is believed that the advantages of the invention will be readily apparent.
Copies of this patent may be obtained for -What is claimed as new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is A package tie including a plate formed near one end with an opening, a pair of spaced parallel raised ribs formed longitudinally of the upper surface of the plate near the opposed side edges thereof, a medial raised rib formed longitudinally of the upper surface of the plate and positioned between and parallel with the other ribs but terminating short of the respective ends thereof, the respective ends of all of the ribs being pointed, a U-shaped spring member formed from a single piece of wire embodying an intermediate portion and spaced side arms, means for securing the ,outer ends of the side arms to the adjacent faces of the first mentioned ribs near one end thereof so that the U-shaped member will strad die the intermediate rib, the arms being olfset upwardly at a point near the inner end of the medial rib and thence gradually inclined to a point near the opposite end of the medial rib and contacting with the plate, the arms near the intermediate portion being extended upwardly to form a guide for cooperating with the opposed pointed end of the medial rib and a cord having one end connected in the opening and adapted to have its main portion transversely arranged between the offset portions of the arms and the rib so as to be frictionally engaged and retained subsequently to being passed transversely and longitudinally about a package.
' In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
