y Application Juneiv, 195o, seria1N0.16s,v14'

This invention relates to clips and more particularly to clips which are adapted to be attached to a tobacco lath for detachably receiving individual tobacco stalksV or bunches of tobacco leaves. l

It is an object of my invention to provide a novel spring 'clip which will facilitate'the attachment of tobacco stalks to the lath upon which a plurality of my improved clips are fastened, and also the handling of the lath with the said stalks attached thereto.

-A further object is the provision of a spring clip which fis expandable to receive stalks of tobacco plants, bunches of leaves or stems of individual leaves.

A further object of this invention is the provision of such a spring clip which may be used for supporting various articles, such as brooms and other tools, and which may be readily attached to or detached from a member upon which the said clip is mounted.

Further objects and advantages of this invention will be more clearly understood from the following description and from the accompanying drawings in which: i

Fig. 1 is a plan View of a portion of a lath having a plurality of my improved clips fastened thereto, one of the clips being shown in central horizontal section and the other clips being shown supporting tobacco stalks of different s1zes.

Fig. 2 is a front view of said lath portion showing tobacco stalks attached thereto; one of the clips being shown in central vertical section.

Fig. 3 is an end view thereof.

Fig. 4 is a front view of the lath showing the swivel operation of the clips thereon.

Fig. 5 is a plan View of the clip showing the same in position to be attached to or detached from the lath.

Fig. 6 is a plan view of a modified form of spring clip.

Fig. '7 is a front view of said modified form of clip.

Fig. 8 is aplan view illustrating a further modified form of spring clip.

Fig. 9 is a front view thereof.

As illustrated in the drawings, the numeral 5 denotes a tobacco lath of conventional. form such as commonly constructed of Wood or other suitable material.

The present invention provides a series of spring clips 6 which are spaced upon the lath and attached thereto preferably by means of a fastening member such as a nail 1 or the like.

end. In the modified form illustrated in Figs. 6

1 Claim. (o1.` 24-259)l raised projection I2 with-a reversely extending v free edge portion which` is adapted to rest upon the surface of the lath 5 to facilitate the inser' tionof a tobacco leaf or stalk or stem into the loop 8. The said foot portion is also preferably formed with a notch YI3 for receiving the shank of the nail 'I underneath the head thereof and the said notch opens into a slit I4 which forms an engaging tongue I5 for ,retaining the clip in engagement with the nail. j

The lead portion I0 is preferably provided by an extension from the loop 8; the said portion extending outwardly and back over the loop to provide a guard which engages the tobacco stalk or stem and opens the loop 8 to permit entry of said stalk or stem into the loop.

The finger II is formed as an extension from the lead portion III and may be cut from a portion of the loop 8 leaving a slot I6 in said loop which will render more flexible the receiving portion ofthe loop. It will vbe noted that the said finger II is curved concavely so as to more adequately engage the surface of the stalk or stem and retain it in the positions clearly illustrated `in Fig. 1.

As illustrated in Fig. 5, the said spring clips are attached to the lath by simply opening the clip to an extent wherein the tongue I5 will be raised above the head of the nail 'I, which has previously been driven into the lath the required distance, so that the said clip may be slipped over the nail by permitting the said head to pass under the tongue. placing clips when necessary.

As illustrated in Fig. 4, the said clips will swivel upon the nail 1 and thereby permit the tobacco leaves to hang vertically When the lath is turned towards a vertical position such as it assumes when being handed to a person who is hanging the lath or when the lath is hung by one and 7, the lead portion IIl-a of the clip is doubled back upon itself to provide the spring nger I I-a.. This formv of clip eliminates the necessity of cutting the nger out of the material of the loop and, in addition, provides a retaining finger of greater strength than the finger in the form of clip illustrated in Fig. 1.

In the modified form illustrated in Figs. 8 and This provides for readily re-v 9, the loop 8b has a widened portion I1 from which a pair of lead portions l-IS project for- Wardly.V These lead portions are then bent' rearwardly upon themselves and extend to the opposite side of the loop adjacent the sides thereof. It will be noted that, in this modied form, the foot portion extends forwardly for a greater distance than in the other forms and has a higher raised projection IZ-b for more securely retaining the stalk or stem of the tobacco in position within the loop.

vIn the use of my improved lath, the stalks orv Y stems of the tobacco are inserted into the loops of the spring clips by simply being movedagainst f v the lead portions of the clips with a rolling motion in a counterclockwise direction.

This motion will tend to raise the lead portion.

of the clip outwardly so as to open the clip and permit entrance of the stalk or stem into-the'VV loop wherein the spring `tension in the loop will cause the nger portion il to be pressed int-o .contact with the said stalks -or stems vand thereby securely retain the tobacco in position upon .the lath.

, When it is rvdesired tostrip the tobacco from the lath, it is simply necessary to remove it with a sweeping movement from left to right which l movement will cause the individual pieces of tobacco to force the clips open and thereby permit passage of the tobacco out of the loops. In thisymanner, the tobacco may be quickly stripped from a lath by a single sweeping motion of the hand leaving all of the tobacco from the lath in a bunch in the hand `0f the operator.

I'claim: v

-A spring cl-ip constructed of asingle strip of ing a retaining tongue and a slot extending from vsaid slit to receive the shank of a fastening mem- ;ber underneath the head thereof; the said tongue being normally disposed in front of said slot to prevent'the `passage of the shank from the slot,

but being bendable to permit removal of the tongue from in front of the slot to thereby permit the'passage of the shank into the slot, and a lead portion on the foot portion bent upwardly from the jplane of `the foot portion and projecting into the said receiving opening to guide a member over the head ofthe saidfastening -membern WIDLAM N. ,ALESHIN. f
