F. E. COWLES CLOTHESPIN SACK Filed April 2, 1946 Inventor flarence 1 1 (bwks By m Patented June 7, 1949 F F I C E 2,472,094 CLQTHESPIN SACK Florence E. Cowles, New Braunfels,"1ex. Application April 2, 1946, Serial No. 658,925

1 Claim.

There is disclosed in the following specifica- I tion and the drawings accompanying .the same and forming a part of this application for patent, an invention the primary purposeof which is to provide a clothespin bag from whichthe. pins cannot be accidentally spilled. i

The invention also has for an object to provide a clothespin bag having its mouth in its side wall for easy access of a hand to remove a pin.

Another object of the invention is to provide a clothespin bag which cannot be blown or accidentally knocked from a clothes line.

A still further object of the invention is to provide in a clothespin bag means whereby the walls thereof will be held spaced in order to provide access of the hand of a user without having to force the walls of the bag apart with the hand against the weight of the contents of the bag.

Other features and advantages will become more readily apparent from the following description and the accompanying illustrative drawings in which:

Figure 1 is a front elevational view of the invention,

Figure 2 is an elevational view of a modification, and

Figure 3 is a broken away perspective section of a spreader member illustrating another modification.

While one embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the above referred to drawings, it is to be understood that they are merely for the purpose of illustration and that various changes in construction may be resorted to in the course of manufacture in order that the invention may be utilized to the best advantage according to circumstances which may arise, without in any way departing from the spirit and intention of the invention which is to be limited only in accordance with the appended claim. And while there is stated the primary field of utility of the invention it remains obvious that it may be employed in any other capacity wherein it may be found applicable.

In the accompanying drawings, and in the following specification, the same reference characters are used to designate the same parts and elements throughout and in which I'll has reference to the complete invention which consists of a clothespin bag; all of the edges ll, l2, l3, l4, and

ii of its walls [6 and l! are integrally connected or stitched together as the case may be. The side wall IT is provided with a mouth opening l9 reinforced around its edges IS with a flexible circular 2 band 213 to prevent undue wear upon the said edge It.

Mounted within the bag It is a rectangular resilient wire 2! provided with side arms 22 and 23 connected by a bottom member 24, which members are adapted to hold the fabric walls It and It extended to full size. The upper ends of the arms 22 and 23 are inclined to a common centerjd of the inclined edges M and I5, Where said inclined-wires are bent at right angles and pass through an aperture 25 of the bag at said center and are twisted together as at 26 and returned to form a hook 27, which hook is bent in upon itself as at 28 to provide a spring clip whereby when the hook is sprung over a clothes line 29 it cannot become accidentally detached from the line by wind or other causes.

In Figure 2, is shown a modification of the invention which consists of a hanger 30, the arms 3| and 32 of which are held rigidly apart by a cross brace 33. In this form of the invention the extension wires 22, 23, and '24 of Figure 1 are eliminated, the bag being flexibly supported upon said hanger 3!]. This arrangement provides a cheaper bag.

In Figure 3 of the invention is disclosed another modification which though slightly more expensive due to some additional wire will especially appeal to those housewives who have tender hands and wish to protect them as far as possible. In this form of the invention the spreader arms 34, 35, etc. are of fiat, sinuous formation in order that the front and rear walls of the bag will be spread apart, the convolutions 36, 31, etc. of the wire pressing against the edges of the said four end walls for the ba and thereby permit ready access of a users hand without having to force the walls apart with the back of the hand, thus avoiding roughing and scufiing the flesh, which which may result upon repeated ingress and egress of the hand.

While the mechanical construction of the above described invention has been disclosed to a sufficient extent to make the same clearly understood and while certain functions of the elements thereof are obvious even if not specifically mentioned, still it is to be understood that there may be other functions which for reasons of brevity have not been gone into more fully because it is thought unnecessary for further clarification due to the fact that the appended claim is drawn to its construction which pretty well cover the subject matter thereof, although applicant retains the right to further amplify the claim upon a full disclosure of the art.

From the foregoing specification it will become apparent that the invention disclosed will adequately accomplish the functions for which it has been designed and in an economical manner and that its simplicity, accuracy and ease of operation are such as to provide a relatively inexpensive device considering what it will accomplish and that it will find an important place in the art to which it appertains when once placed on the market.

It is thought that persons skilled in the art to which the invention relates will be able to obtain a clear understanding of the invention after considering the description in connection with the drawings. Therefore, a more lengthy description is regarded as unnecessary.

Changes in shape, size and rear-rangemnt o! details and parts such as come within the pur view of the invention claimed may be resorted to, in actual practice, if desired.

Having now described the invention that which is claimed to be new and desired to be procured by Letters Patent is:

A clothespin sack comprising a pair of substantially rectangular and flexible walls secured to each other along their marginal edges, an entrancemouth provided in one of said walls at substantially the center thereof, a resilient band reinforcing said entrance mouth, an undulated wire interposed between said walls and having a plurality of peaks, said peaks engaging said walls addacent the marginal edges thereof for retaining said walls in an extended and'spaced position relative to each other, a wire member including a 10 bracebetmnlslid heme:- arms.
