From the above description it is the construction will be fully understood without further explanation.
What is claimed is:
1. An adjustable paper to provide spaced clamp arms adapted to clamp sheets together and an integral arm connecting member between the clamp arms, and a pair of spaced Slides of substantially right angular formation in end elevation having means slidably engaging the arms and the arm connecting member, the clamp arms to move in the direction or each other, one or both of the slides being slidable to adjusted positions relatively to each other whereby to-increase or decrease the size of the paper clip to secure large or small quantities of paper sheets firmly together, adjustment of one slide causing one of the spring arms to be shortoreacharm.thelengthor thought that ened or lengthened and the arm connecting member to be correspondingly lengthened or shortened, adjustment of both slides causing both spring arms to be lengthened or shortened and the arm connecting member to be correspondingly shortened or lengthened.
2. The structure as of claim 1 and in which said means comprises loops on the legs of the slides.
3. An adjustable paper clip comprising a resilient band preformed to provide spaced clamp arms adapted to clamp paper sheets together and an integral connecting member between the clamp and operationof the invention depending upon the quanclip comprising a resil assure arms,andaslideofangulariormstioninend elevation provided with means through which one connecting member pass, constantly to move in the member to be correspondingly lengthened or 4. The structure as of claim said means comprises loops onslide.
5. An adjustable paper clip comprising a preformed resilient band includin spaced clamp arms tending constantly to move toward each other and amember connecting the arms, and a slide of angular formation slidably mounted on the connecting member and on one oi. said arms for spreading the arms apart to receive various quantities of'paper between the arms.
6. In an adjustable paper clip, a paper gripping element of'resilient material comprising a transverse connecting member and arms extending from the respective 'ends of said connecting member,.at least one of said arms being integral with and forming a continuation of said connecting member and having its free end portion biased toward'the other arm, and an angular adjusting member having its angularly related parts respectively overlapping and slidably connected with said connecting member and said biased arm.
