Description

Patented Aug. 24, 1954 UNITED STATE S PAT LOOSE-LEAF BINDER.- INSERT Albert 'J. Pisano, St. Louis, Mo., assignor to Inter- Gity Manufacturing Company, Inc., St: Louis; Mm, a corporation of Missouri Application: October 20, 1951, .Serial'No. 252,263.
1.Glaim. 1.
The present invention relates generally to the loose leaf binder-art; andmoreparticularly to a novel removable insert for loose leaf binders, which is employed" to facilitate the ready and rapid review and 'displayof'looseleaf pages within the. binder.
In brief, the present novel loose leafbinder insert. comprises a multi-sided. collapsible-sup.- port which is maintained in a loose leaf. binder by an attaching flange-having: spaced apertures through which the rings or arches of a loose leaf binder pass. In the preferred form, the several sides of the insert are connected to form a closed figure by means of flexible binder tape or cloth located at each juncture. In the disclosed form, the insert is of substantially triangular cross section when in open position, the bottom side thereof comprising two foldable segments permitting collapse of the insert when it is desired to close the binder.
An object of the present invention is to provide a novel insert for loose leaf binders which may be readily and rapidly changed from a collapsed carry position to an expanded use position to provide a support or stand against which selected sheets carried by the binder may be disposed for ready review and reference.
Another object is to provide a novel insert for loose leaf binders which does not interfere with material carried in the binder and which collapses to a thickness which will occupy only a small percentage of the capacity of the binder.
Another object is to provide a novel insert for loose leaf binders which may be readily disposed in a loose leaf binder and as readily removed for disposal or for relocation at a new point in the binder in reference to the loose leaf sheets or the like carried thereby.
Other objects are to provide an insert for loose leaf binders which is of simple construction so that it may be readily employed by users with minimum instruction, which is of light weight inexpensive construction yet which is sturdy and adapted to serve its intended purpose for a long period of time, and which may be readily fabricated.
The foregoing and other objects and advantages are apparent from the following description taken with the accompanying drawing, in which:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a looseleaf binder insert incorporating the teachings of the present invention;
Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary horizontal cross-sectional view taken on substantially the line 22 of Fig. 1;
Fig; 3 is an enlarged fragmentary horizontal cross-sectional viewtaken on substantially the line 33 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 4 is a plan view ofi'an open' loose leaf binder'with looseleaf sheets to theleftof center andthe insertof Fig. 1 to the'right' in collapsed position;
Fig. 5' is'a' bottom end-elevational viewof the.
binder and contents shown in Fig: 4;r
Fig. 6'is a fragmentaryplan'viewof thebi'nder andcontents of Fig. 4; the-insert being shownin loose leaf sheet supporting position; and
Fig. 7 is a bottom end elevational view of the binder and contents of Fig. 4, showing the insert in use position with several loose leaf sheets disposed thereagainst.
Referring to the drawing more particularly by reference numerals, I0 indicates generally a loose leaf binder insert constructed to include the teachings of the present invention. In the preferred form illustrated, the insert II) includes an inner side panel I2, an outer side panel l4, bottom panels 16, and a mounting or connector panel l8 (Fig. 2), the two sides and one side edge of which are covered by a flexible strip 20 of cloth or other suitable material. The strip 20 is secured to the mounting panel ill by suitable glue or other adhesive material, and selectively spaced openings 22 are formed in the combined panel I8 and strip 20.
The panels I 2 and I 4 are hinged together by flexible inner and outer strips 24 of cloth or the like, suitable adhesive material being used to effect a lasting engagement between'the several parts. Similarly, flexible inner and outer strips 26 hingedly connect the panel [4 and the adjacent panel I6, and flexible inner and outer strips 28 hingedly connect the two panels I6.
As is clear from Figs. 1 and 2, the above mentioned strip 20 extends beyond one side edge of the panel l3 and one free edge portion is adhesively secured to the innermost panel [6 and the other free edge portion is adhesively segured to the panel l2 to provide a hinge connecion.
In use, the insert I0 is placed in a loose leaf binder 3|] having rings or arches 32 which removably receive loose leaf sheets 34. By means of the apertured mounting panel l8, the insert I 0 is disposed in the loose leaf binder 30 at a selected position, such as at the rear as shown in the drawing. When not in use, the insert I0 is in the collapsed position shown in Figs. 4 and 5. When in use, the insert II] is opened to the position shown in Fig. 7 and selected pages 34 of the binder 32 are disposed as shown in Fig. '7 for ready reference, such as by a salesman in discussing the sale of disclosed merchandise or the like with a potential customer.
Manifestly, the insert may be disposed at any desired position in the binder 30. The specific form of the insert l0 may be modified to provide a different angle for sheets disposed thereagainst, such as by changing the widths of the panels IE, or of one of them.
It is manifest that there has been provided an insert which fulfills the objects and'advantages sought therefor.
It is to be understood that the foregoing description and the accompanying drawing have been given only by way of illustration and example, and that changes and alterations of the present disclosure, which will be readily apparent to one skilled in the art, are contemplated as within the scope of the present invention, which is limited only by the claim which follows.
What is claimed is:
A collapsible rest for insertion in a loose leaf binder comprising three connected panels including a front panel, a rear panel, and a bottom panel, said bottom panel including two hinged segments, means hingedly connecting said front and rear panel along adjacent edges, means hingedly connecting the other edge of said front panel to the free edge of one of said bottom panel segments, means hingedly connecting the other edge of said rear panel to the free edge of the other bottom panel segment,
and a loose leaf binder mounting panel hingedly connected to said front and bottom panels at the hinged connection thereof, said rest being of triangular cross-section when open and being adapted to support pages of a loose leaf binder for review thereof when in open position in a loose leaf binder, said hinged bottom segments permitting collapse of said rest when not in use, said means for hingedly connecting said panels and said panel segments comprising flexible strips of material adhesively connected to adjacent panels and panel segments as stated, the flexible material hingedly connecting said other edge of the front panel to the free edge of said one of said bottom panel segments, and said mounting panel to said front and bottom panels being a continuous strip.
