Application August 15, 1950, Serial No. 179,600

3 Claims. (Cl. 224-42A2) This invention appertains to improvements in article holding attachments for sun visors of automobiles and has for its primary object to provide a transparent holder, adapted to be removably sleeved over the free end of a sun visor or glare shield in a manner to be entirely supported thereby, and having a pocket or pouch formed thereon for the exposed storage of articles.

Another object of this invention is to provide an article retainer or holder formed as an elongated sleeve and adapted to be slipped over a sun visor, both of the ends of the retainer being open so that it may be easily disposed on either the left-hand or right-hand visor.

Another object of this invention is to provide a transparent open ended sleeve with a pouch formed by a coextensive transparent sheet superimposed longitudinally on the exterior of one of the sides of the sleeve and permanently secured at its ends and one of its side edges to the sleeve, with fastening means associated with the opposing side edge.

In the accompanying drawing:

Figure 1 is a fragmentary perspective view of the interior of a conventional vehicle, with an article holder, constructed in accordance with the principles of this invention, disposed on the sun visor;

Figure 2 is a front elevational view of the article holder;

Figure 3 is a cross sectional view taken on line 3-3 of Figure 2, and,

Figure 4 is a detailed sectional view taken on line 4 4 of Figure 2.

The article holder I!) is formed from a suitable transparent plastic material and is designed as a sleeve to be slipped over the sun visor I2, the latter being conventionally constructed and installed in the vehicle I4.

The holder Il] includes a pair of oblong horizontally elongated rectangular side walls I6 and I8, which have their opposing longitudinal marginal edges in superimposed relation and secured together by a suitable fastening means.

A pocket or pouch 20 is formed exteriorly of the side wall I8 and is coextensive with the side walls. The lower edge '22 of the single transparent panel or wall 24 dening with the side walls I8 the pouch 20 is superimposed on the lower edges 26 and 28 of the side walls, these edges being secured together by a running in and out sewing 29 and having a binding strip vSil secured in an encompassing manner thereon.

24 to form a closure means for the top of theA pouch. As illustrated, a slide fastener 34 is utilized, though, of course, any suitable type of fastening means could be employed, such as snap fasteners, hooks or the like. The slide fastener 34 is conventionally constructed and provided' with fabric strips 35 and 38, the lower edge of the strip 3G being mated with the upper edge 38 of the panel 24 and stitched thereto by a running stitch 4S, with a binding strip 42 encompassing the edges and joined by the stitching 43] thereto.

The upper edge 44 of the strip 38 is superimposed on the joined upper edges 45 and 48 of the side walls I5 and I8, the edges being stitched together and having a binding strip 50 stitched thereto.

In use, the article holder I 0 is adapted to be sleeved over the free end of the visor I2, so that the holder may be circumposed on either the visor above the steering wheel or the visor above the right hand side of the vehicle. The adjoining ends of the side walls I6 and I8 and of the panel 24 are joined together by suitable stitching and encompassed by a binding strip 52, the binding strip 52 covering the adjacent ends of the binding strips 30, 42 and 50.

The pouch or pocket, dened by the panel 24 and the side wall I8 is preferably positioned on the inner side of the visor, as seen in Figure l, and various articles may be placed in the pouch and held therein in an exposed manner, as illustrated in Figure 1. The articles are securely held in the pouch by the fastener closing the upper end of the pouch. When the visor is swung up into an inoperative position, in adjacency to the roof of the vehicle, the pouch is disposed out of view and the side wall I5 thereof is brought into view. A map may be interposed between the visor and the side wall I6 and held in a secure and exposed manner for the convenience of the driver, who can, at a glance, ascertain-his route.

While, the adjoining edges of the side walls and of the panel 24 are illustrated as stitched together, various other fastening means may be used, such as welding or gluing of the edges.

Having thus described this invention, what is claimed is:

1. In an article holder for an automobile visor, an elongated sleeve having open ends and adapted to be sleeved endwise over the visor from either end of the visor, said sleeve comprising side walls for engagement with opposite sides of the visor,

Fastening means 32 iS DIOVided for the Dane] 55 a single panel overlying the exterior of one of said side walls and being coextensive therewith, said single panel having a longitudinal edge secured to and coextensive with a longitudinal edge of said one side wall and end edges secured to and coextensive with the end edges of the said one side wall, the other longitudinal edge of the panel being coextensive with and laterally spaced from the other longitudinal edge of the said one side wall, said panel being otherwise unconnected to said one side wall so as to define a pouch having an access opening extending along said other longitudinal edge of said one side wall, and closure means for the access opening extending along and secured to the said other longitudinal edge of said one side wall and said other longitudinal edge of the panel.

2. In an article holder for an automobile visor, an elongated sleeve having open Yends and adapted to sleeve onto a visor from eithery end of a visor, said sleeve comprising similar` sidewalls for engaging opposite sides of a visor, said sidewalls having free end edges and opposed longitudinal edges, a single panel overlying the outer side of one ofsaid sidewalls, .said panel being coeirtensive with said one sidewall and having free ends and opposed longitudinal edges, said panel being narrower than said one sidewall and having a free longitudinal edge laterally inwardly spaced from the. related longitudinal side edge of said one sidewall, said free longitudinal edge of the panel being devoid of direct connection with said one sidewall, securing means extending along and securing together the free end edges of both said one sidewall and said panel and longitudinal edges of said sidewall and said panel, and closure means comprising strip means .extending between and secured to said free longitudinal ledge of said panel and the related longitudinal edge of said one sidewall and to the free edges of said sidewall, said strip means being provided with a longitudinal slit shorter than said panel, said slit defining free edges, and fastener means separably connecting the last mentioned free edges.

3. In combination, an automobile visor having opposed sides, an elongated open-ended sleeve sleeved on said visor having sidewalls engaging the opposed sides of the visor, a panel overlying and substantially coextensive with one `of said sidewalls, said panel having a longitudinal edge secured to said one sidewall along one longitudinal edge of said one sidewall, the other longitudinal edge ofr the panel being unsecured to said one sidewall, said panel having end edges secured to saidone sidewall along end edges of said one sidewall, and closure means extending along said other longitudinal edge of the panel and secured to said one sidewall, the space between said panel and said one sidewall providing a storage pouch.
