MATCH BOOK HOLDER Arthur Blessing, Chicago, Ill. ApplicationDecember 3, 1948, Serial No. 63,357"

4 Claims. 1

invention relates in general to an improvement in match book holders and more specifically to an attachment for detachably fastening a book of paper matches to a package of cigarettes, cigars or the like.

One of the objects of my invention is to provide a match holder which is easily attached to a cigarette package and which conforms to the shape of the package so as to take little added space and in which the match book may be readily inserted and removed.

A feature of the invention is that the match book holder when attached to the cigarette pack! age helps to prevent collapse of the package as cigarettes are removed thereupon.

Another feature is that the holder is so shaped as to permit the old match book to be easily re- ,moved and a new book inserted into the holder.

Another feature is that the holder maintains the match book in rigid position relative to the package so that the matches are protected and are easily lighted on the striking surface.

Another feature is that the device is readily attached and removed from any cigarette package without any change in the package itself.

The attachment comprises a flat plate conforming in shape to the cigarette package and having a pair of eyelets or slots in the ends thereof in which the ends of an elastic band may be hooked to hold the plate in place securely against one side of the package. The plate has cut away portions such that the cover flap of a book of paper matches may be readily inserted under a section thereof so that the book will be held fiat against the package.

Further features of the invention will be evident from the following description of the embodiment of my invention disclosed in the accompanying drawing:

Figure 1 shows the blank from which the plate part of the holder is formed.

Figure 2 shows the plate after being formed into its final shape.

Figure 3 is a top view taken from the top of Figure 2.

Figure 4 is a view taken from the right side of Figure 2.

Figure 5 shows the elastic band for securing the holder to the package.

Figure 6 is a bottom view taken from the lower side of Figure 5.

Figure '7 is a perspective view of the holder secured to a package of cigarettes with a book of matches in place on the holder.

Figure 8 is, a. rear View of'a package of cigarettes, withthe elastic band hooked in place. The device consists primarily of a plate 2 formed of metal, plastic, or other light weight material, formed from the blank shown in Figure 1 with the to'pfand bottom lugs 3 and 4 each having holes therein, and bent over as shown in Figures 2, 3 anfd' l; and with the side lugs 5, 6, 1 and 8 bent perpendicular to the plate 2 as also shown in said figures.

In the form shown in Figure 2 the lugs, shown fit snugly over the sides and top and'bottom of a package of cigarettes as illustrated in Figure. '7.

The center part of theplate 2 is cut back at eachside. as indicated at 9 and H] in Figure 2, the spaces Eljand ill being slightly wider than the width of a book of paper matches.

In Figures 5 and 6 I have shown an elastic band ll having a pair of clips [2 and I3 rigidly clamped to each end thereof. Each clip has a hooked end as at i and [5, the hook being of a size to be readily inserted into the holes in lugs 3 and 4 of plate 2.

Referring to Figure 7, I have shown the holder attached to a pack of cigarettes with the plate 2 flat against one side of the pack and with the elastic strip ll stretched around the pack with hooks l4 and I5 hooked into the holes in lugs 3 and 4. I have also shown the book of matches with its flap H5 inserted under the narrow mid section of plate 2 through the cut out parts 9 and [0. After the flap of the match book is inserted between the cigarette package and the narrowed part of plate 2, the fiap l6 may be tucked under the striking surface I"! of the book,

as is usual when closing the book. The band H is only tight enough to hold the plate 2 in place without squeezing the package unduly. The top sections of the cigarette package may be readily torn oif to gain access to the cigarettes as indicated in Fig. 7 where one side has been torn off. The band I! and plate 2 act as guides for tearing and either or both sides may be so removed.

For using the holder attachment in connection with king size cigarette packages, either a longer plate may be used or one of the end lugs 3 or l may be left straight, instead of being bent Q perpendicular to the plate as shown, and the band hooked into the lugs in the same manner.

The holder in addition to rigidly holding the match book in place and preventing collapse of the package acts as ashield to prevent body moisture from reaching the match heads so that they are kept dry and in proper striking condition.

As indicated by the printing on the front of plate 2 in Figures 2 and 7, any desired advertizing slogan may be printed on the front surface of the plate 2 so that the unit may be used as an advertizing novelty if desired.

It will thus be seen that I have provided a novel type of match holder for attachment to any package of cigarettes which may be readily attached to and removed from the package and in which a book of matches may be readily inserted and removed.

What I claim is:

1. A match book holder and support for at-,- tachment to a cigarette package consisting of a flat rigid plate having a pair of rigid bent over sections for engaging the top and bottom of the package to prevent endwise movement thereof relative the plate, a pair of rigid bent over sections at each side of the plate engaging the sides of the package to prevent sidewise movement thereof relative said plate, a pair of notches cut out of the side edges of the plate between said side bent over sections permitting the insertion of a match book flap thru said notches and between the plate and the package, the edges and sides of said notches preventing endwise or sidewise movement of said match book, and means for clamping the match book flap between the package and plate.

2. An attachment for a package of cigarettes comprising a flat plate having a pair of rigid lugs bent at right angles thereto on each side of the plate engaging the sides of the package to prevent sidewise movement thereof relative the plate, a notch or cut away portion between the two lugs on each side of the plate providing a reduced strip under which the flap of a book of matches is inserted, said notches preventing endwise or sidewise movement of the match book when the flap is closed, a rigid lug bent over at each end of the plate and engaging the ends of the package and an elastic band secured to said end lugs and clamping the flap of the match box between the package and the plate.

3. An attachment such as claimed in claim 2 in which the elastic band runs over the center of the ends of the package and around the package in a direction parallel with the cigarettes therein to prevent clamping them together.

4. An attachment such as claimed in claim 3 in which there are holes in each of the end lugs to which the elastic band is detachably clipped and said end and side lugs prevent collapse of the package.
