HOLDER FOR WRITING V I N S TRUMENT S Filed Dec. 22, 1930 INVENTOR.

.4 ORNEY.

Patented Sept, 13, 1932 UNITED STATES PATENT canoe JOHN W. FITZ GERALD, OF MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, ASSIGNOR TO BRIGGs AND STRATTON CORPORATION, OF MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, A CORPORATION 01' WISCONSIN HOLDER FOR WRITING INSTRUMENTS Application filed' December 22, 1930. Serial No. 504,042.

This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in holders for pens, pencils and the like having a receptacle into which the inner end of the pen, pencil or the like is adapted to be inserted, and means for mounting the receptacle whereby the same may be swiveled to any desired position; and has as an object the provision of an improved mounting for the receptacle whereby the same may be readily detachably secured to any surface such as a desk to or the like.

A more specific object of this invention resides in the provision of an improved holder of the character described adapted to be attached to any supporting surface such as a desk top or the like by vacuum means.

And a further object of this invention resides in the provision of a holder of the char acter described comprising an elastic vacuum cup member, means swivelly connecting the pen, pencil or the like receptacle with the cup, and a shield positioned over the cup to conceal the same and provide a neat external appearance for the device.

With the above and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, my invention resides in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts substantially as hereinafter described and more particularly defined by the appended claims, it being understood that such changes in the precise embodiment of the hereindisclosed invention may be made as come Within the scope of the claims.

In the accompanying drawing, I have illustrated one complete example of the physical embodiment of my invention constructed according to the best mode I have so far de-. vised for the practical application of the principles thereof, and in which:

Figure 1 is a view partly in section and partly in elevation, of a on or other writing instrument holder em ying my invention;

Figure 2' is an enlarged view partly in section and partly in elevation taken through Figure lon the plane of the line 2-2; and

Figure 3 is a perspective view illustrating the various elements of my improved holder separated and in their relative positions of assembly.

Referring now more particularly to the accompanying drawing in which like numerals designate like parts, 5 designates a vacuum cup member constructed, in the present instance of rubber, and having the headed end 6 ofa stud 7 embedded therein. A stem 8 is threaded on the exposed end of the stud 7 and the outer end of the stem is internally threaded to receive a stud 9 of a ball member 10 having a slot or groove 11 therein for the reception of a disc like member 12 carried by the inner closed end 13- of a receptacle 14. The disc 12 is pivotally mounted in the slot or groove 11 of the ball 10 by a pivot pin 15. The receptacle 14 is of conventional construction-having a longitudinally extending bore into which the writing end 16 of a or the like 17 is inserted.

As will be obvious, the assembly described ismounted on a suitable supporting surface such as a desk top or the like by placing the cup 5 thereon and exerting pressure on the same by hearing on the ball member 10 so as to depress the medial portion of the cup and expel the air from underneath its dished surface 18, the vacuum thus formed firmly maintaining the cup in position. The pivot pin permits the receptacle 14 with the pen therein to be moved vertically as will be readily apparent and if desired, the mounting of the stud 7 within the cup 5 may be such that the receptacle may be swung about the vertical axis of the stud or the stem 8 may be so constructed as to accommodate this movement. I

In order to give a finished or dressed appearance to the device, a semi-spherical shell 19, is disposed over the cup 5 and has a. collar or sleeve 20 extended therefrom of a diameter to slidably receive the stem 8, the sleeve or' pen, pencil collar 20 passing into a cap 21 carried by the position of the'parts with reference to the supporting surface prior to the application of pressure thereon to expel the air from the chamber formed by the dished undersurface 5 of the cup 5, and the full lines illustrate the position of the parts with the device attached to the supporting surface.

What I claim as my invention is: 1. In a holder for writing instruments, a

mounting element comprising a stem and a suction cup adapted for engagement with a supporting surface, a receptacle adapted to receive a writing instrument and carried by the stem, a casing movably mounted on said stem and adapted to have its marginal edge engaged with the supporting surface to enclose the suction cup, and means yieldably maintaining the casing marginal edge in engagement' with the supporting surface.

2. In a holder for writing instruments, a mounting element comprising a stem and a suction cup adapted for engagement with a. supporting surface, a receptacle adapted to receive a writing instrument and carried by the stem, a casing movably mounted on said stem and adapted to have its marginal edge engaged with the supporting surface to enclose the suction cup, and spring means confined between a portion of the casing and a portion of the mounting stem for yieldably maintaining said marginal edge of the casing in enga ement with the supporting surface to there y impose an upward tension on the mounting stem.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto affixed my signature.

JOHN W. FITZ GERALD.
