A. J. FORREST KEY iiomana Filed Jan. 20 1925 iiiiiiiiiiiii' IN VENTOR A. Jiorras,

PATENT OFFICE.
ALBERT JOSEPH FORREST,
OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
KEY HOLDER.
Application filed January 20, 1925.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ALBERT J. FORREST, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook, State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Key Holders, of which the following is a specification.
My present invention relates generally to key holders and more particularly to aflexible button or belt carried holder, my primary object being the provision of an elastic or tensile holder having effective means for limiting its extension and which may in its normal condition be comparatively short in length and thus normally convenient and comfortable to wear.
A further object is the provisionof an extensible key holder and the like having an attaching tab applicable with equal facility to buttons and belts, as well as one which will be simple, inexpensive and at the same time strong and durable.
In the accompanying drawing which illustrates my present invention and forms a part of this specification,
Figure 1, is an elevatl'on of the complete holder,
Figure 2, is an enlarged view, partly elevation and partly broken away and section, of coiled body,
Figure 3, is a detail perspective view one of the end caps or ferrules, and
Figure 4, is a detail perspective view of the attaching tab.
Referring now to these figures, my invention proposes a key holder wherein the keys 10, with or without identifying means, as for instance a name plate 11, are held by one or more split rings 12, one through the other where more than a single ring is used, and one through one of the integrally formed end eyes 13 of the body of the holder in the form of a cylindrically coiled spring 14 whose convolutions are normally in the close contacting relation plainly shown in Figures 1 and 2.
A split ring 15 extends through the other eye 13 and also through the end loop of an attaching tab 16 formed by the attached folded portions of a strip. of material, preferably leather and the like, which though strong and durable is, at the same-time, of a flexible inelastic nature. This tab, as
most plainly seen in Figure 4, is centrally Serial No. 3,697.
and longitudinally slitted at 17, the slit connecting spaced openings 18 which enables the tab to be easily placed over a button or receive a belt in case a button is not present.
It is obvious that being extensible, the cylindrically coiled spring body 14 may be made comparatively short in length and comfortably worn, and my invention provides against over-extension of the spring by means of a flexible limiting member 19 extending through the spring and connected at its ends to the inner portions of the eyes 13.
My invention also provides end caps or ferrules 20 of cylindrical form, slightly greater in diameter than the spring coil 14 and inwardly. flanged as at 21, at one end, so as to abut and suflioiently coverthe spring ends. These caps or ferrules are diametrically slotted at their flanged ends as at 22 in order that they may be removed over the eyes 13 to permit of ready removal of the limiting cord or connection 19. These caps or ferrules protect the ends of the cord or connection 19 against destructive or abrasive contact by the rings 10 and 12.
The holder as thus described is simple, strong and durable, may be conveniently and comfortably worn, readily and effectively used, and will be inexpensive in first cost and upkeep.
I claim: 7
1. A flexible extensible holder having split rings at its opposite ends, and an attaching tab formed of a folded section of material forming a loopat the bight thereof to receive one of said rings, and having parallel contacting extensions, said extensions having similar, oppositely disposed lengthwise slits and openings therethrough at the ends of said slits.
2. A flexible, extensible holder consisting of a cylindrical coiled spring, rings associated with the ends thereof, a flexible inelastic limiting connection extending through the spring and connected to the ends thereof, and end caps loosely on the ends of the spring serving to protect the ends of said connection, the said spring having end eyes and said end caps having inturned end flanges slotted to pass over the eyes.
