Description

July 2 1935. r w. RUSSELL CLIP Filed Aug. 13, 1954 Patented July 2, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 6 Claims.
My present invention provides an extremely simple and highly efficient clip or holder adapted for Various uses but particularly adapted for holding road maps, memorandum sheets, bills,
letters, and the like, and also for holding in close association therewith a pencil or pen.
One important use of the device is in connection with an automobile for holding maps, memorandum sheets and the like and a pencil or pen in convenient position for frequent use. When designed for use in connection with an automobile and some other similar uses, the base of the clip will be made in the form of an elastic vacuum cup so that it will adhere to an instrument board or other smooth surface. However, for some purposes the base will be made of a solid and heavy material, such as molded cement or cast metal so that the device will serve also as a paper weight.
The preferred form of the device, which for thev present purpose may be assumed to be especially designed for use in connection with automobiles, is illustrated in the accompanying' drawing wherein like characters indicate like parts throughout the 'several views.
Referring to the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing the complete device; and
Fig. 2 is a View partly in edge elevation and partly in section showing the device applied to the instrument board of an automobile.
The body of the clip is made from a single piece of thin spring sheet metal, such as sheet steel or brass preferably plated with a noncorrosive material such as nickel. Also, the clip can be made entirely of stainless steel or other non-corrosive sheet steel. This metal sheet is cut and bent to form two clamping leaves 3 and 4 connected at their base ends by a tubular loop 5. A relatively small secondary leaf 6 is partly cut from one of the main leaves, to wit: as shown, from the leaf 4, and is bent and pressed outward to afford in connection with said leaf 4 a clip or holder for a marking instrument such as a pencil or pen 1. Close to the loop 5 the main leaves 3 and 4 are solidly connected, preferably by a rivet 8.
The numeral 9 indicates a base in the form of a tubular cup or suction cup made from rubber or similar elastic material so that it is adapted to rmly adhere with a smooth surface when pressed against the same. The numeral I0 indicates a small bolt or screw, the head of which is molded or cast into the body of the base 9 and projects axially therefrom and is provided, at
its projecting end, with a nut I I. The tubular f loop 5 of the clip is formed with a segmental slot I2, intermediate its ends, and through which the projecting end of the bolt I0 projects with the nut II inside the said tubular loop. Also, it 5 is important to note that the angular projections of the nut II extend into the slot I2 so that the nut is held against rotation in respect to the loop 5, or, in other words, will be caused to rotate with said loop when the clip is rotated around 10 the axis of the bolt I0 and in respect to the base 9. However, the slot I2 is of such circumferential extent that it permits the clip to be moved from a position parallel to the axis of the bolt I0, as shown by full lines in Fig. l and by dotted 15 lines in Fig. 2, into a position perpendicular to the axis of said bolt, as'shown by full lines in Fig. 2. This permits the clip to be set in any position which is most convenient for the person who will use the same. 20
From the foregoing it is thought to be evident that the clip acts as sort of a wrench for tightening and loosening the nut II so as to hold the clip in its set and desired position. Of course, when the clip is to be adjusted from one 2 position to another, it will be first turned in one direction to loosen thenut and after it has been set to the desired angular position, it will be turned in the opposite direction to tighten the nut and thereby hold the clip in its set position.
The device described, as is obvious, can be cheaply made, will be rather ornamental in appearance, and will be found convenient for the purposes stated and for Various other similar uses.
What I claim is:
1. A clip of the kind described comprising a body member formed from a single piece of resilient sheet material bent to form two main clamping leaves connected by a tubular loop, said leaves adjacent said loop being rigidly connected, and a base having a projecting threaded bolt equipped with a nut, said bolt projecting into said tubular loop and said nut being within the latter.
2. A clip of the kind described comprising a body member formed from a single piece of resilient sheet material bent to form two main clamping leaves connected by a tubular loop, 5 said leaves adjacent said loop being rigidly connected, and a base having a projecting threaded bolt equipped with a nut, said bolt projecting into said tubular loop and said nut being within the latter, the bolt passage in said loop being so -of said leaves having a partiallycut, laterally pressed, relatively small secondary clamping leaf, said tubular loop being formed, intermediate its ends, with a bolt passage, in combination with a base having a projecting threaded bolt equipped with a nut, said bolt projecting into said tubular loop and the nut being within the latter. v
4. A clip o1' the kind described comprising a.' body member made from a single piece of resilient sheet material bent to form two main clamping leaves connected by a tubularl loop, one of said leaves having a partially cut1ater ally pressed, relatively small secondary clamping leaf, said tubular loop being formed, intermediate its ends, with a bolt passage, in combinatlonlwith a base having a propjectng threaded bolt equipped with a nut, s'aid bolt 1projecting into vsaid tubular base and the nut. being within the latter, said boit passage being so circumferentially extended that said clip may be angularly adjusted in respect to said base and-angular portion of said nut being extended into said bolt passage as and forv the purpose set forth.
5. An adjustable holder comprising a body member having a tubular loop therein g and a base having a projecting threaded bolt equipped with a nut, said bolt projecting into said tubular loop and said nut being within the latter.
6. An adjustable holder comprising a body member formed with two leaves connected by a tubular loop, said leaves adjacent said loop being rigidly connected and a base having a projecting threaded bolt equipped with a nut,
said bolt projecting into said tubular loop and 20 the latter.
