Application filed January 17, 1916, Serial No. 72,652. Renewed June 3, 1918. Serial No. 238,062:

T 0 all whom it may concern: 1

Be it known that l, WILLIAM ELIJAH Er.- morr, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Grand Rapids, in the county of Kent and State of Michigan, have teners in which the fasteners will be held.

substantially in a fixed position, but may be readily removed for delivery to setting means or the like.

' lhe invention will be herein described as applied to an elongated mounting strip adapted to be formed into a compact package'from which fasteners may be delivered one after another to an attaching machine, but it will be understood that the invention is equally applicable to other forms of mounting sheets and for use in difl erent relations. This package comprises a mounting sheet with the fasteners passing through the sheet at an acute angle to its surface and with the sheet strained or deformed immediately adjacent to each fastener into bindingengagement with the fasteners. Means for holding the fasteners in their angular position are provided and may preferably take the form of a second sheet secured to the first sheet.

In another aspect the invention relates to a novel method of forming a package of fasteners according to which the fasteners are held in a mounting sheet by friction and the frictional engagement of the fasteners and the sheet is increased after the fasteners have been originally inserted in the mounting sheet. In the illustrated use, the piercing portions of the fasteners are passed through superposed, separated mounting sheets and preferably are located'substantially at right angles to the surfaces thereof. The mounting sheets are then laterally displaced to bring the fasteners to a lesser angle with the surfaces of the sheets, and by this operation the sheets are strained or deformed immediately adjacent to each fas- Specification of Letters ma.

tener so that the frictional engagement between the fasteners and the sheets'is mate rially increased. In order to prevent subsequent lateral displacement of the superposed sheets, the latter are preferably secured to 6'0 gether as, for example, by the use of any. suitable adhesive along the edges of the strips. By means of such an arrangement, the holding power of the mount with respect to the fasteners is much more pronounced than would be the case if the fasteners were forced directly through the mounting sheets and left at. right angles to the surfaces thereof.

.Other features of the invention will be 7o better understood from a consideration of the following specification taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in

which,---

Figure 1 is a perspective view showing a 7'5 plurality of staples mounted in accordance with my invention.

' Fig. 2 is a side elevation thereof.

Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 1 showing nails or tacks mounted in a similar manner to the mounting of the staples as disclosed in Fig. 1; and

Fig. 4 is a side elevation of the construction shown in Fig. 3.

Like reference characters refer to like parts throughout the several views of the drawing.

In the embodiment of my invention disclosed in Figs. -1 and 2-, thin lower and upper strips of paper 1 and 2 are provided, these strips beuig of ndefinite length and comparatively narrow so as to receive staples of the character used in fastening buttons to shoes. Of course it is apparent that the material from which the mounting sheets 1 and 2 are formed may be anything other than paper which will have equivalent or similar properties and that the dimensions of the strip may be varied to suit any particular purpose, as for staples of greater width or, me

if desired, for more than one row of staples. The staples indicated at 3 have depending legs 4: which are forced through the superposed separated strips 1 and 2 at an angle and preferably substantially at right angles 1% to the plane of the strips. Alarge number of the staples are located one behind the other as close together as may be convenient and after they have been attached to the two strips in the manner outlined, the strips are displaced laterally by being drawn over each other so as to rotate the staples 'to an acute angle to the planes of the strips 1 and 2 after which, as by use of any suitable adhesive, further displacemnt of the strips is pre- Vented and preferably the strips are connected together at their edges. It will be apparent that by so rotating the staples the material of strips land 2 adjacent the legs 4 will be deformed or crimped as indicated at ing is illustrated as used for carrying nails or tacks, strips 1 and 2 similar to strips 1 and 2 except that such strips need not be as wide as strips 1 and 2, are used and the nails or tacks 6 forced through them after which the upper strip is drawn backward simultaneously with the forward movement of the lower strip crimping and' straining the material of each strip at 7 on two sides of each nail or tack 6, this also causing a greater frictional contact and over. awider surface than if the tacks were driven directly through the strips and at right angles to their planes. Strips l and 2 are also held against displacement by being connected together at their edges by any suitable adhesive.

A package. of this character is very eco nomical in the matter of production and is especially effective for holding nails, staples or the like. In use a strip carrying a large number of nails, tacks or staples may be used in any nail or staple driving machine and the hopper which is usually an indispensable element of such nail or staple driving machine dispensed with, the nails or staples being brought to the driving mechanism one or more at a time as needed without the elaborate mechanism now needed to separate and feed one or more nails or staples at a time to the driving mechanism in such inserting machines. It will be obvious that this novel method of packaging fasteners entails the additional advantage that the fasteners are laid over so that the resulting package is thinner thus allowing a mounting strip more readilv to be wound into a roll, if desired.

I claim 1. In combination, a mount comprised of elongated strips of thin flexible material located one over the other and secured together at the edges thereof, and articles passed through said strips, portions of said strips immediately adjacent the articles being crimped to engage frictionally against said articles, substantially-as decribed.

2.-The method of mounting staples or like articles having piercing portions, which consists in providing strips-of thin material and. placing them one over the other, then passing the piercing portions of said articles through said strips substantially at right angles to the surfaces thereof, then movlng the strips lengthwise of each other to position said articles at an acute angle to said surfaces of the strips in such a way as to crimp the'mater'ial at the points where said articles pass through, and then securing said strips together against movement with respect to each other, substantially as described.

3. In combination, twostrips of material located one over and in contact with the other and secured together at their edges, and articles having .piercing portions passing through bothvof said strips at an acute angle to the surfaces thereof, portions of said strips adjacent said articles being crimped and frictionally engaging thereagainst, substantially as described.

4. The method of mounting staples or like articles having piercing portions, which consists in providing two-strips of paper and placing one over the other, then passing the piercing portions of said articles through said strips substantially atright angles to the surfaces thereof, then moving the strips lengthwise of each other to position the articles at an acute angle'to said surfaces of the strips in such a way as to crimp the material at the points where said articles pass through, and then connecting the edges of ,the strips together, substantially as described. 1

5. A package for fasteners or the like comprising a mounting sheet, fasteners having portions passing through said sheet at an acute angle to the surface thereof, the portions of said sheet adjacent to said fasteners being deformed into binding engagement with the fasteners thereby to increase the frictional contact between the fasteners and the sheet, and means for securing the fasteners in their angular position to prevent accidental displacement.

6. A package for fasteners or the like I to increase the friction between the fas-,

teners and the sheet, and means for preventing displacement of the superposed sheets.

7. A package for fasteners or the like comprising superposed mounting sheets, fasteners passing through said sheets at an acute angle to the surfaces thereof, one of 1,306,107 iii;

said sheets being strainedadjacent to the portions of the fasteners" passing therethrough thereby to increase the frictional contact between the fasteners and the sheets, and means for maintaining said sheets against relative displacement thereby to maintain the angular relation between the fasteners and said strained sheet. r

8. A method of packaging fasteners or the like having piercing portions which consists in superposing a plurality of sheets of thin material, passing the piercing portions of said fasteners through said sheets, laterally displacing two of the sheets to position said fasteners at a different angle to the surfaces of the sheets from the angle at which they were inserted and thereby straining one of the sheets immediately adjacent to the piercing portion of each fastener, and then securing the sheets'agains't relative lateral displacement.

9. A method of packaging fasteners or the like which consists in placing a plurality of strips of mountin material in superposed relation, passing asteners through said strips, laterally displacing the strips to position the fasteners at a lesser angle to the surfaces of the strip from the angle at which they were inserted, thereby to deform the surface of one of said strips immediately adjacent to the fasteners, and connecting the edges of the strips together to prevent relative displacement thereof so as to maintain the angular relation *between the fasteners and the deformed strip and insure the maximum frictional engagement therebetween.

10. A method of packaging fasteners or the like, which consists in passing portions of the fasteners through a mounting sheet, tipping said fasteners to position them at a lesser angle to the surface of the sheet from the angle at which they were inserted thereby to deform said sheet'immediately adjacent to each of the fasteners so asto increase the frictional contact between the v fasteners in their second position against accidental displacement.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature;

WILLIAM E. ELLIOTT.
