B. "ULRICH FILING DEVICE.

Application filed March 25, 1926. Serial No. 97,283.

This invention relates to an improved fil-- ing device of the type which usually comprises a drawer, or similar receptacle, for containing a series of cards or the like, and which, in the form herein shown, is provided with a number of stub guides or dividers forming pockets to receive the lower edges of the cards, and to retain them in such a manner that any individual card or group of cards will be readily accessible and easily read. I

The object of the present invention is to provide, in connection with the drawer or other receptacle for containing the cards, an improved false back or follower to be used for holding the cards in proper position when the receptacle is only partially filled. The invention also includes improved means for securing the false 1 back within the drawer, so that it may be easily adjusted longitudinally thereof.

Thespecific constructionof the invention and the advantages resulting therefrom will be more fully explained in the following detailed description, which is to beread in connection with the accompanying drawing illustrating one embodiment thereof.

In the drawing: I

Figure 1 is a vertical longitudinal section of the invention.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the re movable bottom lining having stub guides secured, thereto.

Figure 3 is a vertical transverse section taken on the line '33 of Figure 1. 1

Figure 4 is a perspective View of the false bacl.

The invention is illustrated in connection with a filing drawer, preferably constructed of metal, and having a bottom '5, sides 6 and ends 7. Each end is braced by an inside head 8 secured thereto, having a sloping face and provided at its lower, edge with tongues 9, which extend through the bottom 5 and are locked thereto. A bottom lining 10, of suitable flexible material, is adapted to be inserted in the drawer, and'is provided at each end with a tongue 11, which is adapted to extend through a slot 12 at the lower side of the sloping face. A number of stub guides 13 are connected to the bottom lining 10, each by two strips 14 of linen, Japer or the like which are glued to the bottom lining 10 and stub guides 13, respee tively. These stub guides may be disposed in upright position, as shown in the lefthand portions of Figures 1 and 2, to receive.

with cards, the length of the space containing them is limited by a false back 15, which isformed from a single piece of sheet metal, one edge of which is bentto form a for wardly extending horizontal base flange 16.

At ,theupper edge of the false back, the

metal composing the same is bent upon itself, as shown at 17., and extends downwardly, as indicated at 18, part way to the bottom, and is there bent rearwardly and then downwardly to form a rear base portion 19. V

Each stub guide 13 is provided near each end with a hole 20, which also extends through the connecting strips 14 and, when the stub guide is lying flat on the bottom, registers with a, hole 21 extending through the bottom lining 10. The edges of the holes 21 are preferably reinforced by metal eyelets. The rear base portion 19 of the false back is provided with a pair of tongues 22, which are adapted to be inserted in the corresponding holes 20 and 21. Thus, the false back 15 may be adjusted longitudinally so that any desired number of card pockets, defined by the stubfguides 18, will be located in front of the same. The base portion 19 has substantially thesame slope as the frontface of the false back but slopes rearwardly, sothat the rear portion of the drawer may be used for a separate file.

The portion18 of the false back is bent to form a tubular bearing 23, extending from side to Side of the drawer for receiving a pair of pins 24. Each side 6 of the drawer has its upper edge bent inwardlvand clownwardly, as at 25, and formed with a plurality of holes 26 which correspondin position to that of the pins 24, and are adapted to receive the same to secure the false back in any of its various positions of adjustment. Each pin 24 is provided with a projection 27.

which serves as a handle and cooperates with a slot 28 inthe tubular bearing 23 togsecure the p in 24 either in projected or retracted posltioni V It will be understood that the several stub guides 13 are provided to form pockets for receiving various groups of cards, and to retain the lower edges thereof, so that they cannot slip downwardly underneath the other cards and become misplaced. The sloping faces of the inside heads 8, and the sloping faces of the false back 15 permit the cards to be tilted, so as to obtain ready access to any desired card. The cards may be tilt ed without any lateral movement of their lower edges, and will stay in the position to which they have been tilted until they are positively moved. When there are enough cardstofill only a portion of the drawer, the false back 15 may be readily adjusted to utilize any portion of the drawer desired.

While I have shown and described in detail one form in which the invention may be embodied, it is to be understood that vari: ous. modifications may be made in the structure of the drawer, and in the arrangement ofthe various features without any material departure fron the spirit or scope of the invention as claimed.

What is claimed, is:

1. In a filing device, a receptacle having a bottom with spaced transversely disposed stub guides flexibly connected thereto and formed with holes, and, a false back having tongues engageable with the holes in any one of-said stub guides when the latter lies flat on the bottom, thereby adjustably limiting the length of the space which receives the cards.

2. In a filing device, a receptacle having a bottom withhspaced transversely disposed stub guides flexibly connected thereto and formed with holes, and a false backhaving at base with a forwardly extending flange adapted to lie .fiat on the bottom, and real,- wardly extending tongues engageable with the holesin any one of the stub guides when the latter lies flat on the bottom, thereby adjustably limiting the lengthof the space between said false back and the front end ofthe rece tacle.

3. In a filing device, a receptaclehaving a bottom with, a removable lining, spaced transversely disposed stub guides flexibly connected to the lining and formed with holes, said bottom lining haying holes registering with the holes in the respective guides when the latter lie fiat thereon, and a false back having tongues engageable with the holes in any one of the guides and underneath said lining, thereby adjustably limiting the length of the space which receives the cards, 7
