, Jan. 16, 1951 w. e. HENNEMAN CRAYON HOLDER Filed Nov. 22, 1946 Patented 1.... 16,1951
1 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE CRAYON HOLDER William G. Henneman, Terre Haute, Ind.
"Application November 22, 1946, Serial No. 711,696
.l.-; L.' e 1 My invention relates more particularly to crayon holders having means for adjusting the crayon in the holder to protrude a desired length beyond the holder.
E The ob ect of my invention is to provide a crayon holder of substantially cylindrical shape having a bore therein to receive a crayon and to protect it against breakage and the clothing of a user against soiling.
"Another object of my invention is to provide a crayon holder having a substantially cylindrical hollow body the writing end whereof is adapted to hold the crayon securely in adjusted writing position.
Other objects of my invention may appear in the following specification describing my invention with reference to the accompanying drawing illustrating apreferred embodiment of my invention. It is however to be understood, that my invention is not to be limited or restricted to the exact construction and combination of parts described in the specification and shown in the drawing, but that such changes and modifications can be made, which fall within the scope of the claims appended hereto.
In the drawing:
Figure 1 is an elevational view of a substantially cylindrical hollow body used in connection with the crayon holder according to my invention.
Figure 2 is an elevational view of the crayon holder according to my invention taken at right angles to Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on the vertical center plane of the crayon holder as shown in Figure 2.
Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on line 4-4 in Figure 3.
Figure 5 is a sectional view taken on line 5-5 in Figure 3.
Figure 6 is a perspective detail View of the shifting plunger shown in Figures 2 and 3 as being used for adjusting the crayon in writing position, and
Figure '7 is a perspective view of a modified form of the shifting plunger.
Referring to the drawing in detail the crayon holder has a substantially cylindrical hollow body In. This body can be made from any desired material. It can be molded or can be made from a tube. The cylindrical hollow body has two longitudinal slots l I therein extending from the writing end, i. e., the end at which the crayon protrudes when in writing position to approximately one half of an inch from the other end to crayon holders and 2 Claims. (Cl. 120-49) 2 g g of the body. If the body is made from tubing a plug I9 is firmly seated in the latter end of the body. If the body is molded the undivided end can be molded closed. The slots II are located diametrically opposite to each other, as clearly shown in Figure 5, and divide the body in two symmetrical semi-circular prongs. Adjacent the writing end the body is tapered as shown at l2. The two prongs of the body formed by the slots II are bent inwardly so that their ends will nearly touch each other if the body is empty and the bores at their ends will form an oval opening.
A plunger [4 fits slidingly into the bore of the cylindrical hollow body It]. Thisplunger hasa curved reduced neck l5 adapted to extend through one of the slots l I and a clip member I6 is integrally formed on the outer end of the curved neck. When the plunger is located inside the body it can be slidingly moved therein by using the clip member as a handle. When the plunger is positioned at the closed end of the body the clip member can be used as a pocket clip for the crayon holder.
To insert a crayon l1 into the body, the plunger I4 is moved to. the open end of the body thereby spreading the two body prongs apart and the crayon, which fits also slidingly into the body,
can be inserted, while the plunger is moved gradually toward the closed end of the body.
By moving the plunger toward the open end the crayon can then be forced in position to protrude out of the body. In this manner the crayon can be adjusted relative to the body. The ends of the prongs of the body will engage the crayon securing it in any desired and adjusted writing position.
When the crayon holder is to be used for bench work only and therefore will not be carried in a pocket, the plunger l4 does not need to be formed with a clip member.
In Figure 7 is shown how a plate-shaped handle l8 is-formed on a plunger l4-a of a holder destined for bench work only. The plunger is adapted to be slidablyfarranged in the body while the handle extends through the slot ll permitting the plunger M-a. to be slidably moved in the body.
Having described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A crayon holder comprising a tube of resilient material having a smooth bore to receive the crayon, said tube being formed with at least one longitudinal slot opening into the bore extending through the forward end of the tube and defining two separated longitudinal wall portions tensioned toward each other whereby the slot is normally tapered toward the forward end of the tube to cause said wall portions to frictionally grip the crayon in the bore, and an ejector comprising a rod slidably positioned in said bore to engage the rear end of the crayon therein, said slot being substantially narrower than the bore, said rod being formed with a laterally reduced relatively thin radial projection extending radially outwardly through said slot, said projection having flat sides of substantial area slidably engaging the edges of the slot whereby on forward movement of the ejector the sides of said projection spread the slotand thereby the bore so as to facilitate forward movement of the crayon in the bore by said rod, and a portion on the outer end of said projection serving as a handle for moving said ejector forwardly and rearwardly relative to said tube.
2. A crayon holder comprising a tube of resilient material having a smooth bore to receive the crayon, said tube being formed with at least one longitudinal slot opening into the bore extending through the forward end of the tube and defining two'separated longitudinal wall portions tensioned toward each other whereby the slot is normally tapered toward the forward end of the tube to cause said all portions to frictionally grip the crayon in the bore, and an ejector compris ng a rod slidably positioned in said bore to engage the rear end of the crayon therein, said slot being substantially narrower than the bore, said rod being formed with a laterally reduced relatively thinradial projection extending radially outwardly through said slot, said projection having flat sides of substantial area slidably engaging the edges of the slot whereby on forward movement of the ejector the sides of said projection spread the slot and thereby the bore so as to facilitate forward movement of the crayon. in the bore by said rod, and a portion on the outerend of said projection serving as a handle for moving said ejector forwardly and rearwardly relative to said tube, said projection being in the form of a plate extending longitudinally along a substantial portion of the length of said rod.
WILLIAM G. HENNEMAN.
