A'.I-IOLDIER FOR SOCKET-WRENCH SETS.

Application mea June 27, 1925. serial No. 39,998.

yThis invention relates to a holder or con-- tainer for a socket wrench set comprising a plurality of sockets of different sizes and a handle capable of being detachably connected with any one of the sockets and thus avoid the necessity of employing a separate handle for each socket and also reducing the cost of the equipment and the amo-untof space required for its storage. f

1t is the obj ect of this invention to provide a container or holder` of this character with improved means for detachably connecting the cover and receptacle or box, which improvements are designed to hold the members of the wrench set reliably against displacement within the container and also securely hold the cover and receptacle together and prevent their accidental separation when being handled or moved around while not 4in use.

1n the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is aside Velevation of a socket wrench set holder or container embodying our improvements.

Figure 2 is a. top plan view thereof.

Figure 3 is a vertical longitudinal section thereof.

Figure 4 is a vertical cross section taken on line Ll --4, Fig. 1.

Figures 5 and 6 are end elevations of the container viewed from opposite ends thereof.

Similar characters of reference indicate like parts throughout the several views.

rr)This container or holder consists essentially of a receptacle or box, a cover adapted to extend over the top of the receptacle and means for detachably connecting the cover with the receptacle.

In the preferred form of the receptacle the same comprises a bottom 105 two longitudinal side walls, 11, 11 which preferably converge from the front end to the rear end of the bottom, a rear upright end wall 12 connecting the rear ends of the bottom and side walls and projecting upwardly therefrom, and a front end wall 13 connecting the front end of the bottom and side walls and projecting upwardly therefrom. The wrench sockets 14 l are of different diameters or sizes but preferably of the same height or length and these are preferably arranged in a longitudinal row within the receptacle. The handle of the wrench comprises a bar 15 which is adapted to be placed lengthwise over the upper ends of the wrench sockets when not in use, and

this bar is provided atene end with a tang 16 projecting laterally therefrom and adapted to depend into the space between one end wall of the receptacle and the'adjacent wrench socket, whenV the wrench is not in use, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3. i j The cover 17 of 'the container extends lengthwise over the upper side of the recep..

properly packed in the receptacle, and .there-` by confine the handle over the wrench sockets' and prevent accidentalv escape `of the same and the wrench sockets from` the container.

One end of the cover and the corresponding end of' the receptacle are preferably connected with each other by means of a detachable pivot which in the present inst-ance consists of a hook 19 depending fromthe yrear end of the cover and engaging with an eye 20 at the upper end of the rear end wall`12of the receptacle.

At the other or front end of the cover the same is guided vertically on the adjacent end of the receptacle by providing this end `of the cover with a depending guide lip or lug 21 which engages its inner side with the adjacent end wall 13 of the container while its opposite vertical edges are confined between retaining lugs22 arranged on opposite sides of the upper part of the end wall 13, as shown in Figs. 17 2, 3 and 6.

, This end of the cover is locked in its depressed operative position by a locking device which preferably consists of a loop or bail capable of swinging vertically and lengthwise on one of these members and detachably engaging` the other member of the container or holder.

In the present organization this loop consists of two upright arms 23,23 which are arranged in front of the front end wall 13, a horizontal transverse pintle 24- connecting the upper ends of said arms and turning in an eye 25 arranged at the lower `end of the guide lip 21, and a transverse locking bar 26 connecting the lower ends of said arms. On the lower part of the outer side of the front end wall 13 the same is provided with an outwardly project-ing locking lug 27 which is preferably formed integrally with the front end wall and stamped or struck out of the same so as to leave anopening 28 .I in this wall immediately above the locking lue'.

llhe locking loop is adapted to be swung downwardly and its lower or locking bar engaged with the underside ot the looking lug 27 tor holding the receptacle and cover in their closed position relatively to each other when the wrench members have been properly placed therein, as shown in Figs. l, 3 and 6.

ln order to prevent accidental disengagement of the locking loop or bail from thev locking lug the outer end of the latter is turned downwardly' slightly, as shown at 29, thereby forming an inwardly facing shoulder which is adapted to be engaged by the outer side of the locking bar 26 and coniine the latter in its operative position.

The lug 27 is sufficiently resilient to permit of' engaging the lower end of the looking loop or bail with the underside of said lug by springing the bail past the downwardly turned outer end thereof, and this permits the bail also to be disengaged therefrom upon applying eXtra outward pressure against the same and moving this loop into its open or inoperative position shown by dotted lines in Fig. l, thereby permitting the cover to be raised for rendering the soc-liet wrench members v accessible.

The construction of this cover is preterably suoli that when the same is placed over the top of the wrench bar the same will normally be lifted at its front end a short distance abovethe top ot this bar and thereltore necessitate detlecting this end of the cover downwardly from the position shown by dotted lines in F ig. l to the position shown by full lines-in Figs. l and 8, inorder to perinit of swinging the bail or loop inwardly and downwardly tor engaging its locking bar with t-he lug 27 ot the receptacle. By this means aspring pressure is exerted by this cover against the wrench members in the receptaole and also against the locking loop or bail whereby the wrench members are held against rattling in the receptacle and the locking bail is held against displacement. p

rlhis torni of lock for the receptacle is not only inexpensive but the same is also very reliable in its operation for holding the cover and receptacle together and it can also be very easily manipulated tor opening or closing the container.

We claim as our invention A container comprising a receptacle pro'- vided on its front end wallV with a horizontal resilient locking lug which is struck out of the material of said endV wall and has a downwardly turned outer end; a cover pivota-lly connected at its rear end with the corresponding end ot the receptacle; and a vertically swinging locking bail pivoted on the front end of the cover and adapted` to be sprung over the downwardly turned outer end of said lug and engage with the underside ot the latter.
