UNITED STATES PATENT DFFICE KEY HOLDER George C. Lewellen, King City, Mo. Application February 17, 1941, Serial No. 379,348
1 Claim.
This invention relates to key holders, and its general object is to provide a holder in the form of a sheath for slidably receiving one or more keys through an open end, the holder being slotted longitudinally and the slot being closed' by a slide fastener having means for detachably connecting a key to the slide member thereof,
whereby upon opening and closing the slot by the fastener, the key is moved out of and into i character set forth, that preferably includes two compartments, one for each key, and the slide.
members may have means thereon to identify the keys'carried thereby.
Another object is to provide a holder for keys or the like, that is simple in construction, inex-' pensive to manufacture, and extremely eflicient in operation, use and service.
one of their ends by stitching 4 to provide. two
compartments, and the remaining ends are left free to provide an opening for each compartment for the passage of thekeys into and out of the same, as will be obvious upon inspection of Figures 2 and 3.
Each of the outer wall members I and 2 is provided with a slot 5 extending along its longitudinal center but terminating inwardly of the ends thereof and each slot has secured to the side and end edges thereof by stitching 6 the tapes 'I of "a slide fastener of the usual construction, in that the fastener includes a slide member 8 cooperating with the elements of the tapes for opening and closing the slot, as will be apparent upon inspection of Figures 1 and 3.
This invention also consists in certain other hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and specifically pointed out f in the appended claim.
In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which: 7 V
Figure 1 is a side view of the holder which forms the subject matter of the present invention and constructed for two keys, and illustrates the keys retracted in housed position.
Figure 2 isan edge elevation thereof, with one of the keys projected in position for use.
Figure 3 is a side view of Figure 2, looking toward the right thereof.
Figure 4 is a sectional view taken approximately on line 44 of Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows.
hook carried slide members.
. Referring to thedrawing in detail, it will be" noted that the housing of my holder isin the The outer projecting portion of the member 8 has connected thereto in the usual manner a strip of spring metal looped to provide the shank which is curved inwardly from its connection with the member 8 and the remaining portion of the hook from the shank is directed for disposal in parallelism with the member 8, but terminates in a free end [2 that is inwardly flared toward and extends slightly beyond the end of the member 8 opposed to the end having the shank secured thereto, as clearly shown in Figform of a sheath having rounded ends andis made from some soft flexible sheet material such are secured together about their side edges and ure 5.
From the above description and the disclosure in the drawing, it is believed that the operation of my holder will be obvious, but it might be mentioned that one or more keys are connected to each of the hooks ll, so that movement of the slide members for closing the slots will draw the key or keys into the compartments, whereas movement of the slide members to open the slots, will project the keys outwardly through the open ends of the compartments to a position for use.
It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of the invention will be readily apparent.
It is to be understood that changes may be made in, the construction and in the combination and arrangementof the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of like body made from flexible sheet material to provide outer walls and an inner wall, said outer and inner walls being stitched together along the side edge portions and one of the end portions thereof to provide a pair of key receiving compartments having one of their ends open and their opposite ends closed, said outer Walls being slotted along the longitudinal centers thereof for the major portion of their length, slide fasteners for closing the slots and having the slide members thereofextending into the compartments, spring hooks for attachment of keys thereto and carried by the slide members for disposal of the keys into and out of the compartments through the open ends upon movement of the slide members, each hook being formed from a single strip of metal looped to provide a shank integral with the outer end of its slide member, said shank from its connection with its slide member being directed toward the open end of its compartment and from the remaining end portion of the hook to provide a key receiving space to allow free pivotal movement of a key on the hook, and'said remaining end portion of the hook being directed toward the closed end of its compartment and paralleling its slide member and having its free end flared toward and terminating substantially flush with the inner end of its slide member.
GEORGE C. LEWELLEN.
