Description

H. S. M CRACKEN Nov. 26, 1929.
Patented Nov. 26, 1929 UNITED STATES PAPER FILE Application filed July 12, 1929. Serial No. 377,838.
This invention relates to paper files, and it is particularly adapted and intended for use as a prescription file for druggists, altho it is capable of other uses.
The object of the invention is to provide an improved file characterized especially by a smooth arch or arches on which the papers are filed, as distinguished from a split or broken arch or ring which has the objection that when papers are filed thereon they sometimes will be caught in the oint and thereby torn.
A further object of the invention is to provide a file which can be cheaply made of wire, bent to suitable shape to produce a back or support and to form a pair of impaling arches projecting upwardly or forwardly therefrom. The free ends of these arches are guarded by being caught in hooks projecting from the back pieces, and the ends can be quickly disengaged from the hooks for the purpose of placing the papers on or removing the same from the arches.
The wire back part is also formed with a loop so that it can be hung on a wall, altho ordinarily, especially for storage purposes, the holder will be housed in a box from which it can be removed on occasion.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which Figure 1 is a side elevation of one of the files enclosed in a box which is shown in section. Figure 2 is a perspective view of the file removed from the box.
Referring particularly to the drawings 6 indicates a box in which the file may be enclosed, having a hinged door 7 at the front end which may be opened to permit the file to be placed in or drawn from the box. This door may have a suitable label to indicate the contents of the particular file.
The file itself is made of wire, of which one piece or section is bent to form a front cross bar 8 and two longitudinal side bars 9 which at the rear end are bent upwardly as indicated at 10 and the ends then bent inwardly and forwardly to produce hooks 11 which are spaced apart to receive the free ends of the arches to be described.
Another piece of wire is bent to form difile may be hung on a nail if desired. The
verging arms 12 extending rearwardlyfrom the front bar 8 between the side bars 9,and at the rear ends these bars12 are bent up.- wardly and then downwardly to form arches 13 the free ends of which, at the back of the file are adapted to engage the hooks 11 when the ends of the arches are pressed or sprung inwardly within the hooks. Normally the free ends of the arches tend to spring outwardly or rearwardly, so as to clear the hooks, but when sprung into engagement with the hooks the resiliency of the arches will hold the ends in engagement with the hooks, which thus form guards to prevent accidental loss of papers from the arches. g Y i The back frame formed by the parts 8, 9 and 12 is further strengthened by wirecross pieces 14 and 15 the latter of which is bent at the middle into a loop 16, by which the various wires are soldered or otherwisesecured together where they cross, as indicated at 17 This forms a comparatively stiff or rigid file which can be quickly bent and assembled by wire bending and soldering operations.
A series of index cards 18 may be strung on the arches to divide the prescriptionsaccording to dates or otherwise.
In use, the prescriptions or papers to be filed will preferably be perforated, but either with or without perforations they may be impaled on the arches by detaching the ends 18 thereof from the hooks 11, the ends springing out to clear the hooks, permitting the ends to be inserted through the papers at the back, the papers being then swung upwardly and forwardly over the arches to finally rest flatly on the back frame. To find any particular prescription or paper they can be swung back over the arches to expose the paper desired, and if removal of the same is desired the ends of the arches can be disengaged from the hooks and the upper papers slid off and the desired paper removed.
By the means described papers or prescriptions can be filed in order, and when a file is full it can be placed in the box and stored in any suitable place.
The invention is not limited to the particular form shown, but various changes may be made within the scope of the following claims.
I claim:
1. A file comprising a back formed of bent wire and including bars terminating in hooks at their rear ends, and upwardly projecting continuous arches having free ends engageable wit-h said hooks.
2. A file as in claim 1, the arches being resilient and adapted to be sprung into and out of engagement with said hooks.
3. A file comprising a bent wire back frame having side bars terminating in hooks at their rear ends and bent wire arches secured to said back frame, said arches being continuous and resilient and having free end engageable with said hooks by a spring action.
4. A file as in claim 3, the hooks being bent upwardly from the plane of the back frame.
5. A file as in claim 3, and a cross wire connecting the side bars and provided with a loo G A file comprising a back frame consistv ting of a piece of wire bent to form a front cross bar and a pair of side bars terminating in hooks at their rear ends, another piece of wire secured to said back frame and bent to form a pair of continuous arches projecting from the back frame, the rear ends of the: arches being free and detachably engageable with the hooks.
7. A file as in claim 6, and reinforcing cross pieces connecting the two pieces of wire.
8. A file comprising a bent wire back frame having opposed inwardly projecting raised hooks formed at the rear end of the frame, and a pair of continuous bent wire arches projecting from said frame, the ends of the arches being free and resiliently engageable with or disengageable from the hooks by springing the ends of the arches laterally from or toward each other.
In testimony whereof, I aflix my signature.
