ADJUSTABLE CLIP Filed March 1, 1959 INVENTOR .e/efvfsr/sMA/er ATTORNEYS liiatentecl July 23, 1940 ADJUSTABLE CLIP Ernest F. Smart, Southington, Conn., assignor toV The Peck, Stow & Wilcox Company, Southington, Conn., a corporation of Connecticut Application March 1, 1939, Serial No. 259,137
1 Claim.
My invention relates to a spring clip for holding various articles, particularly tools and the like, on a display stand or other support.
It is an object of the invention to provide an adjustable type of spring clip, which is simple in construction, cheap to manufacture and very effective for removably holding articles on a support.
In the drawing which shows, for illustrative purposes only, a preferred form of the invention- Fig. 1 is a side View in partial section of a spring clip illustrating features of the invention;
Fig. 2 is a sectional View taken substantially in the plane of the line 2 2 of Fig. 1; and
Fig. 3 is a View similar to Fig. l, illustrating the clip in a different position of adjustment.
The spring clip includes a pair of members lformed of resilient material, preferably spring metal. One clip member includes a base portion 5 to iit flatwise against a support 6 and the end is bent upwardly into a holding clip part, preferably of general S-form, as indicated at 1. The other clip member includes a fiat base portion 8, to intert with the base portion 5 and the end is bent up, as shown at 9, into a form substantially the same as that of the opposite clip holding portion and the portions 1 9 are opposed to each other, so as to provide two spring holding ngers with a reduced throat through which an article may be passed and securely held by the spring action of the spring fingers. One of the base portions, for example, the base portion 5, is provided with angularly extending flanges l-l, between which the other base portion extends and by which it is guided relatively to such other base portion.
One of the base portions, in this case the base 5, is provided with a longitudinally extending slot Il and the other base portion has one or more openings, which may be in the form of a slot butrpreferably comprises one or more separated screw holes l2-l3, in general registering with the slot ll. When the clip isV to be assembled on a base, for example, as shown in Fig. 1, a clamping screw I4 or other holding means is passed through, say, the hole l2 and the slot Il. When the screw is turned up tightly the two clip parts will be held by the screw in rigidly assembled relation. When the screw is loosened the two clip members may be moved to various positions of both angular and longitudinal adjustment before the screw is tightened. When the clip parts are to be arranged fory holding the smallest articles, the holding fingers are of course moved toward each other to substantially the maximum extent, as shown in Fig. 3,
and in that case the hole i3 is preferably employed for the passageof the screw it, so that 1G,
the clamping screw, acting on top of the base portion 8, tends to hold the entire base portion 5 down againsty the support and securely holds the base portion 8 in assembled relation with the base portion 5i. Thus, in certain predetermined 15 positions of axial adjustment of the spring clip, both members will be much more securely held than if a single hole were provided. All adjustments of the clip may be secured by using one or the other of the holesl iZ-IS, and the entire device is sturdy, eiective in use and relatively cheap to manufacture.
While the invention has been described in considerable detail and a preferred form shown, it is to be understood that various changes may be made within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claim.
I claim:
A clip comprising two strips of resilient sheet metal,each strip having a generally fiat base portion and the said base portions iii-,ting notwise on each other, one of said base portions having upturned means at at least one side edge engageable with the adjacent edge of the other of said base portions to guide said base portions longitudinally of each other, said base portions having registering apertures therein for the passage ofl a screw to hold both base portions to a ERNEST F. SMART.
