LUGGAGE SECTION END WALL HAVING A PERIPHERAL UNDERCUT GROOVE SECURING A BUFFER STRIP Filed Aug. 18, 1945 INVENTOR. Wes/E a 5. Sykes BY %a/Jm Ji /am ATTC/P/VEY Patented Jan. 31, 1956 "PERIBHER' t e A'BUFF inmate-.
My invention relates to stitchless luggage, and more particularly it is an important object'ofgthe invention to provide trimmin such as corners.
andedges that are mountedupon luggagelwithout stitching. w
Another object is to provide a protecting corner or edge on luggage in an arrangement that in the end productis're'silient.
My .inventionalso has fgr. itsobjects.toprgvide such means that are positive in pe k U venient in use, easily installed inawgrlgmg position and easily disconnected therefrom, economical of manufacture, relatiuely. simple, andiofrgenr.
eralsuperiority. and seryiceability.
The invention. also comprises. novel details. of construction and novel combinations a d; arrangements of parts, which willmcre fulliaapncar in the course of.the.followihgdescription, Hew, ever, the drawings merelyshow. and the following description merely describesembodiments the present invention, which. are. given by, way of illustration. or... example. only.
In. the drawings, like .reference charactersdes;

Fig. 6 is a sectional View taken onlthe line 6--fi of Fig. 5.
Fig. '7 is a sectional view taken on the line l-'l of Fig. 5.
Figs. 8 to 11 show modified constructions for resilient corners.
Referring more in detail to the drawings, the reference number I2 generally designates a piece of hand luggage that is edged as shown at l3. The opposite ends of the edging material are bent towards each other, as suggested at I4, to lock the edging in place. In hand luggage that is separable into halves, as particularly shown in Fig. 2, each half has its edging so bent and locked in place.
The body I 5 of the luggage is preferably lightweight material, such as light-weight metal, e, g., magnesium or aluminum, plastic or wood. The sides and ends of the body I5 are grooved, as suggested at l6, for receiving the edging material, which in Figs. 3 and 4 is shown to be a comn, cone Ill E T. ctc'cvtstcve RIP Srkae -s ecies. Qa if 1945, Serial No. 611,324 2.0mm. (01.190 1) paratively rigid basemember I which is substantially inelastic andthe same is covered with a comparatively resilient material 18, such as leather or cloth. Each groove [6 extendsalong each edge of the side of each body or case section 15, then along eachedge of the top and bottom portions ofsa'id body, and then partly along theparting line edge of eaeh endotthe' bodylithe grooves 16 on thesame end of the case,
completely encircling the contour'edge thereof and also extending partly along the line of parting oft'he case sections. Eachgroove I6 is, there fore, C -shaped.
The groove lines a bottom that is /-shaped and. is, therefore, undercut to" receive a correspondinglyshped, coveredbase member It. In

The body is preferably one of the Iiglit weight mate rials mentioned--abovel Back "or the corners 20 isacushion 23m cork, rubber or other resilienti material: T hecoine r 2-D and thebackinglmata rial 23 =are preferably oidove tailsha'pe in cross section, 'when taken on the line t -t 'of Fig. 5;
or generally parallel thereto. This shape is shown in Fig. 6. The lower edges of the corner 20 and of the cushion 23 are at an acute angle to the horizontal, as shown in Fig. 7, to aid in preventing their escape from the recess 24 in the body. To further hold the corner in place upon its cushion, a rivet 25 is also provided. The corner piece 20 and cushion are slid down in the dovetail-shaped groove to the position shown in the drawings, and held there by the rivet.
In the form shown in Fig. 8, the body 26 of the luggage is covered with suitable resilient material 21, such as leather or cloth, that is folded into the corner recess of the piece of luggage, as shown at 28. The corner comprises a metal cap 29 upon a cushion 30 which may be of one or more of the materials mentioned in connection with the cushion 23 above. The flanges of the cap 29 at the edges thereof are bent inward around the cushion material, as suggested at 3!. It is believed clear to one skilled in the art that the corner cap and cushion may be held in place by suitable means, e. g., the means shown in Figs. 5 to 7. A lining 32 is also indicated in Fig. 8.
In the form shown in Fig. 9, the covering 3:3 is
resilient material, is folded under the edges of the corner piece 38. Suitable rivet means 42 holds the assembly in place. I the material 4| is preferably greater than the distance between the corner member 38 and the body 40, in order to squeeze the edge portions of thematerial 41 therebetween to prevent their displacement.
The thickness of In the form shown in Fig. 11, the embossing 43 is angular instead of round, as in Fig. 10. Moreover, the edges 44 of the corner members 45 are bent inward to clinch outwardly extending edges 48 of the resilient covering 46 on the corner member. Suitable rivet means 47 also hold this assembly in position.
The use of my present invention is believed apparent. In the form shown in Figs. 1 to 4, the edging material is slid into position and its ends then bent towards each other to clinch it in place. In the other forms shown in the drawings and described herein, the corner members are mounted without stitching in a variety of manners, some of these forms also being resiliently mounted.
, While I have illustrated and described what I now regard as the preferred embodiments of my invention, the construction is, of course,- subject to modifications without departing from the scope of my invention. I, therefore, do not wish to restrict myself to the particular forms of construction illustrated and described, but desire to avail myself of all modifications that may fall within the scope of the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
' 1. In luggage formed of separable sections connected to form a case of generally rectangular form, each case section having a groove formed along the end contour edge thereof whereby said grooves completely encircle each end of the case,
4 the groove in each case section, at each end, being extended partially along the line of parting of the case sections, said grooves each being also formed with an undercut, and an edging strip within each groove and co-extensive therewith, each strip having an edge corresponding in shape to that of the mentioned undercut, each edging strip, at each end, having an inturned extension positioned in the respective mentioned end extensions of the grooves.
1. 2. In luggage formed of separable sections connected to form a case of generally rectangular form, each case section having a groove formed along the end contour edges thereof whereby said grooves completely encircle each end of the case, the groove in each case section, at each end, beingextended partly along the line of parting of the case sections whereby each groove is general- 1y :C-sh'aped, the bottom of each groove throughout its extent being formed with an undercut, and a C-shaped edging strip in each groove and having an edge fitting into said undercut, said edging strip comprising a form-retaining substantially inelastic base member, and a resilient cover for at least the outer faces thereof.
