HERBERT S. JONES, F BETHLEHEMI, PENNSYLVANIA.

. Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Dec. 2d, 193 8.

Application filed December 1917. fierial No. 209,474.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, HERBERT S. Jones, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Bethlehem, in the county of Northampton and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Improvements in Electrified Satchels, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to a protective means to beappliedto satchels, valises, suit cases and the like and its principal object is the provision of unique rneans for electrifying a satchel, so that, should it be picked up by a person other than the owner, such person will receive a shock.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a unique switching arrangement by which the electric circuit may 'berendered operative or inoperative.

Still another object is the provision of a floating connection, whereby intermittent shocks will be imposed on the hand which grosses.

. While the invention is illustrated in but one embodiment, it is to be understood that other embodiments are possible without departing from the spirit {if the appended claims, or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.

Throughout the drawings, the same numerals of reference designate the same parts in all of the several figur'es, wherein:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a satchel embodying the invention.

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view. Referring to the drawings, there is' shown a conventional form of satchel 1 which opens on the upper longitudinal edge in the usual way. The pivotally connected closure members 2 of the satchel are of the usual form and are made preferably of metal and to these the leather or fabric portions of the satchel is attached.

One of the closure members 2 of the satchel carries two metal eyes 3 and 4, the eye 4 being attached to the member 2 in the thatit hangs substantially in a horiz'.

usual way but the eye .3 being attached thereto in such a manner as to be electrically insulated therefrom, this insulation being indicated by the numeral 3 in Fig. 2.

The handle 6 is of the conventional form and carries electric conducting wires 8 in closed within it, each of these wires connecting with one of the rings 7' at one end and at the other end each connects with an L-shaped plate 9 set in the handle to project out to the underface thereof where both plates lie flush with the underface of the handle and are in close proximity to each other but not in contact. The handled is intended to be made of a material usually used for such handles, so that the handle in itself may be a non-conductor.

On the upper edge of that closure member 2 to which the eyes 3 and at are connected, there is a slida-bly mounted stud 10 adapted to move in the slot 11 formed in tlie-closure member in the direction of its length. That portion of the stud 10 which engages the slot is of smaller diameter than the head thereof and the smaller portion projects into the interior of the satchel where it. receives asmall collar12, thus permitting the stud itself to move longitudinally in the slot but preventing it from vertical movement therein.

On the under face of the closure member 2, there is a contact member 13 which is;

pivoted at its longitudinal center 'on a sup port 1%, the'latter being held on the underface of the closure member 2 but suitably insulated therefrom by an insulating strip 15. The Contact member 13 is so designed atal position when the body 1 is raised in horizontal position but the extreme end 16 inclines downwardly from this horizontal plane. When the switch stud 10 is moved to that end of the slot adjacent to which the contact member is hung, the lower end of this stud 10 is in close proximity to the depending ends 16 and. any vibration imparted to the contact member 13 will result in bringing the stud 10 and the depending end 16 into contact for a purpose yet to be described.

A suitablepocket 17 is formed on the interior of the satchel and this pocket carries a battery 18 and a shock coil 19. One terminal of the battery is connected to the closure member 2 by a wire ,20 while the other terminal thereof is connected to one ber 13 is in contact battery 18 will then supply current through terminal of the shock l the contact plates 9, such as a The other terminal nccts with the contact member the eye 3 by wlres messes coil by ''awire 21. of the shock coil com 13 .and with 22 and 23 respectively.

For the purpose of illustration, let it be assumed that the-stud 10 has been moved.

The self-inducta shock coil 19 will then set u would cause vibrate on its, pivotal nee" of the p a countereurrent in the coil and if anything be across rent will flow through hand, this curthe wire 21, throu 'h the battery, through the wire 20, on to the closure member 2, wire 8, the plate 9, throu presumed to be between t the eye 4, one ring 7, one 11 the connectlon e two plates, on

to the second plated), through the second wire 8, on to the second ring 7, on to the eye 3, and thence back to the shock coil through the wire 23. If the two contact plates 9, the case were anybody to such coil would impart a very satchel could not but fall of such a. shock. The pivota contact member 13 provides intern'iittently closing the circu tery and the shock coil member will be thrown into ralsmg the grip. This intern ing and closing of the batter a hand he across as would be undertake to lift the satchel this induced current in the shock-- prec'eptible shock to the hand and whosoever had lifted the to give evidences lly mounted a means for it of the batin case the grip is raised, for thispivotally mounted contact vibration by nttent open y circuit re- .wvhat is claimed as imity to each sults in the self-inductance of the shock coil causing a current to flow through the circuit just described and to impart a shock to any sensitive object, such as a hand, that may be in contact-with the two plates 9.

The satchel is rovided with the usual lock member attac ed to the closure memher 2 and the switch stud -11 is intended to match this locking member in appearance. The object of making the locking member 24: and the stud 10 identical in appearance is to enable the owner of the satchel equipped with this arrangement to shift the shocking device into circuit on the pretense of locking the satchel, thus it will not be made apparent to lookers-on that a trap is being set for whomever may attempt to purloiii the satchel.

" The invention having been described,

new and useful is:

In a device as set forth, the combination with a satchel primary electric circuit carried within the satchel, a floating connection in said primary circuit. and a secondary circuit derived from the primary circuit, said secondary circuit extending into the handle whereby a shock may be imparted to the hand that undertakes to lift the satchel. I 2. In a device as set forth, the combination with a satchel having a handle, of a ,slidably mounted stud carried by one closure member of thesatchel, a floating contact member insulated from and carried on the underface of said closure member, a pocket within the satchel, a battery, and a shock coil carried within the pocket, the battery and the shock coil being electrically connected together and to the closure member andito the Contact niember respectively, electrical donnections carried within the handle, and, plates also carried in the handle and in spaced relation and in close proxother, the aforesaid electrical connections connectingwith the battery and with the shock coil res )ectively.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature. HERBERT S. JONES.
