THOMAS E. MARCHAND, 0F SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA.
PENCIL-HOLDING CLIP.
Application filed August 5, 1922. Serial No. 579,880.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, THOMAS E. MAR- CHAND, a citizen of the United States, resid ing at Sacramento, county of Sacramento, State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Pencil- Holding Clips; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the characters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this application.
This invention relates to improvements in clips for holding pencils, pens and the like,
the principal object being to provide a de vice of this character in the form of a small one-piece member adapted to be removably mounted on the index finger of the writing hand of the user of the pencil, and provided with means for frictionally holding a pencil so positioned that the user may, with the hand already holding and using the pencil, engage the pencil with r the clip, and likewise disengage the pencil when it is again necessary to use the same.
A further object is to provide a clip device to hold a pencil in such a manner that the latter is then out of the way, and the user or wearer of the clip may have the free and full use of his hand for any purpose he may desire.
This device is especially intended for use by bookkeepers, accountants and those engaged in clerical work generally.
Such workers, while using pencils or pens more or less continuously, frequently have to stop writing to answer the telephone, run an adding machine or similar device, and to do tasks of a similar nature in which the hands must, be free.
The pencil in such cases is usually placed either behind one ear, from where it is liable to drop and break the point, or it is laid on the desk to become mislaid among the sundry loose books and papers on the desk. The use of my device eliminates these iii-- conveniences, with their attendant loss of time. 1
. A further object of the invention is to produce a simple and inexpensive device and yet one which will be exceedingly effective for the purposes for which it is designed.
These objects I accomplish by means of such structure and relative arrangement of parts as will fully appearby a perusal of the following specification and claims.
In the drawings similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several views:
. Fig. 1 is a fanciful view of a human hand manipulating a pencil, showing the clip as installed.
Fig. 2 is a similar View, showing the pencil held by the clip.
Fig. 8 is a detached the clip.
Referring now more particularly to the characters of reference on the drawings, the numeral 1 denotes a curved band, preterably of spring-metal, adapted to fit onto the index finger 2 of the hand of the user perspective view of.
and to be positioned on the finger between the hand and the nearest knuckle, as shown. The portlon l is substantially U-shaped,
thus leaving an opening 3 between the sides smaller U-shaped member l, the medial line of which is substantially at right angles to the medial line of the portion 1, while said portions extend in parallel planes.
The opening of the portion 1 projects out wardly of that side of the band 1 to which it is connected, or away from the opening 2.
The portion t forms the clip, and is of a size, from side to side, to receive and frictionally engage and hold a pencil 5 of the usual diameter, the outer or free edge of said clip portion being bent or curved away from its opening somewhat as at 6, to better guide the pencil into place.
The free end of the band 1 is also similarly bent out as shown at 7, so that there is no likelihood of that end of the band cutting into the flesh of the finger.
In operation, the device is positioned as shown in Fig. 1, with the opening of the clip facing toward the pencil as held and the medial line of the clip being substantially horizontal when the hand is held in a normal writing position.
This enables the pencil to be engaged with the clip by merely rolling the pencil along the face of the index finger nearest the thumb into engagementwith the clip by means of said thumb, a slight pressure of the thumb being suflicient to push the pencil firmly into the clip. The finger encircling thereof opposite the clip opening, and on the band Will not slip around the finger owing to the frictional engagement had With the use of said spring material. i
To engage the pencil from the clip the thumb is manipulated so as to cause the tip thereof to engage the pencil on the side the side of the clip nearest the hand. it a slight pressure is then exerted to Withdraw the pencil from the clip, the pencil may then be easily moved into the Writing position Without the aid of the other hand.
Of course if desired, the clip may be mounted on a finger of the other hand, in Which case a pencil may be easily engaged with the clip without any practice being necessary.
From the foregoing description it will be readily seen that l have produced such a device substantially ful ills the objects of the invention as set forth herein.
lVhile this specification sets forth-in de tail the present and preferred construction of-the device still in practice such deviations from such'detail may be resorted to as do not form a departure from the spirit of theinvention as defined by theappended claims.
Having thus described my invention,what I claim asnew andu se ul and desire to secure by Letters Patent is iigl pencil holding device comprising a spring hand adapted to frictionally fit onto a linger of a'liandyand a spring clip extending outwardly of the band and whose axis is substantially parallel to that of said band; said clip having a side opening through which thepencil is inserted. y
A; pencil holding clip comprising-a substantially U-shaped hand adapted to .be lrictionally pressed ontola finger olia hand, and a U-shaped clip formed With said'band, and adapted to frictionally engageia pencil the opening of the clip facing outwardlyof the band and the mediallines of =the;clip
and band being substautiallyiat right angles to each other. V
In testimony whereof I 'atlix my signature.
