Description

Sept. 26, 1950 E. POTTER ETAL CLIP BOARD FOR HANDCARTS Filed April 24, 1948 Patented Sept. 26, 1950 UNITED STATES CLIP BOARD FOR HANDCARTS Edward Potter and John J. Runstein, Portland, Oreg.

Application April 24, 1948, Serial No. 23,048

2 Claims. (Cl. 224-29) Our present invention comprises clip board adapted to be attached to the handlebar of a hand .cart for retaining papers and pencils in readily available position. The principal object of the invention is to provide means to retain a golf card and pencil in readily accessible position, to prevent such items from becoming lost, and to eliminate the necessity for reaching into pockets for such items. It often happens that a golfers hands become muddy and soil his clothing when he searches for the score card and pen oil, and this annoyance is eliminated with our invention. Although the invention is particu-- larly useful in connection with caddy carts it is not necessarily limited thereto as it is also useful to delivery men or other workers who have to keep papers such as ordersand tally sheets in a convenient, accessible location.

The principal object of the present invention is to provide a clip board which may be mounted upon a handlebar and will be retained thereon Without displacement from an accessible position. Handlebars are usually rounded or formed of tubular stock so that a device clamped thereon might be relatively easily displaced. Our invention includes means for attachment to any such handle or tubular support without modification thereof and which positively prevents rotation of the clip board from its desired position.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a clip board of the character described which may be formed by simple operations from any readily available material of suitable nature.

The foregoing and other objects and advantages of the present invention will be more readily apparent from inspection of the following specification taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, While the features of novelty will be more distinctly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawings Fig. 1 is a side elevation of a golf caddy having the present invention applied thereto;

Fig. 2 is an enlarged plan view of the invention taken from the plane of the line 2-2 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is an end view taken from the plane of line 33 of Fig. 2; and

Fig. 4 is a plan view of the baseplate comprising the present invention.

The present invention comprises a baseplate IEI adapted to be mounted upon a, support such as the handlebar l l of a golf caddy, as illustrated in Fig. 1. The baseplate II] is preferably of rectangular shape and has a pair of slits l2 parallel to and close to each end edge of the baseplate 10. The slits are preferably in opposed pairs terminating adjacent the longitudinal center line of the base plate to provide an integral extension 43 at each end. The slits l2 thus define oppositely directed, flexible straps l4 extending parallelto the ends of the baseplate. A plurality of holes [5 are. provided in each of. the free ends of the straps M, the holes beingsuitable for reception of separable fastening means, as illustrated in Fig. 3. The separable fastening means preferably comprises a stove bolt iii having a head I! which engages the outer surface of the end of one of the straps I4, and a nut l8 threaded on the stove bolt to engage the outer surface of the opposite strap [4. The bolt is so arranged in an opposed pair of holes l5 that an intermediate threaded portion thereof is drawn into firm engagement with the lower surface of the handlebar II as the nut is drawn tight. Such handlebars are usually formed of aluminum tubing or other relatively soft material so that the threads of a steel stove bolt will bite into and firmly engage the handlebar to prevent the clip board from rotating from its position of use. The clip board is preferably made of aluminum or light gauge sheet iron of sufficient rigidity to retain its shape, but of sufficient flexibility that narrow strips thereof such as the straps l4 may be bent around the handlebar.

A pair of holes 20 are provided near one end of the baseplate ill for reception of bolts 2| by means of which a spring clip device 22 may be fastened to one end of the clip board. Any suitable spring clip device adapted to retain papers on a clip board may be mounted in the position shown for retaining a score card or other sheet in position upon the baseplate, and other fastening means such as rivets may be employed to retain the spring clip device in position. In the illustrated form the bolts 2| also function'to retain a spring pencil clip 23 adjacent the clip device 22, the pencil clip having an elongated base which passes beneath the mounting portion of the spring clip device and is provided with holes for the passage of bolts 2 I.

It is to be appreciated that the integral construction of baseplate and mounting straps is preferred, but that separate mounting straps may be affixed or attached to a separate baseplate. The construction illustrated is preferred since affixing or securing of separate mounting straps to a baseplate is eliminated and the device can be formed in one punching operation by a die constructed to provide the slits l2, the openings l5 and the openings 20.

Having illustrated and described a preferred embodiment of our invention, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that the invention permits of modification in details and arrangement. All such modifications as come within the true spirit and scope of the appended claims are considered to be a part of our invention.

We claim:

1. For use in combination with a hand truck including a cylindrical handlebana metallic clip board adapted to be mounted on said handlebar, said clip board comprising a rectangular sheetmetal base plate having an integral extension at each end near the longitudinal centerline thereof and a pair of straps integral with each of said extensions and extending parallel to the end edges of the base plate, each of said straps having an aperture through the free end thereof and the total length of each pair of said straps being in such proportion to the circumference of said handlebar that the ends thereof may not meet around said handlebar, a stovebolt passing through the apertures of each pair of said straps, and a nut for securing each stovebolt in said apertures, the arrangement being such that a threaded portion of said stovebolt intermediate the ends of said straps may lie along a line intersecting the exterior surface of the handlebar and firmly engage the lower surface of said handlebar to prevent rotation of said baseplate about said handlebar.

2. A golf cart including a cylindrical handlebar, nd a clip board mounted on said handlebar,

said clip board comprising a substantially rectangular sheet of metal forming a baseplate, said sheet having an integral extension at each and along the longitudinal centerline thereof and a pair of laterally projecting straps integral with each of said extensions, each pair of said straps embracing the surface of said handlebar and having their free ends directed outwardly to provide a pair of closely spaced ears lying on the opposite side of the handlebar from the baseplate, each of said ears having an aperture therethrough, a bolt passing through the apertures of each pair of said straps and lying transversely of the handlebar and in contact therewith, and a nut for securing each bolt in said apertures, the arrangement being such that a threaded portion of said bolt intermediate the ears of said straps lies along a, line intersecting the exterior surface of the handlebar and firmly engages the surface of the handlebar to prevent rotation of the baseplate about the handlebar.
