1 Claim. (Cl. Ztl-114.5)

This invention appertains to holders or anchors for the end strap portions of the handles of pocket books.

The primary object of the present invention is to provide an anchor which can be used with any type of pocket book, particularly with either box-like or soft pocket books, to secure the end strap portions of the handles in position through or in an aperture in the side wall of a pocket book;

More particularly, the invention contemplates the provision of a one-piece handle anchor adapted to attach the end strap portion of the handle in an opening in the relatively rigid side wall of a box-like pocket book in a manner so that the handle is securely attached to the wall and the inner lined surface or face of the wall is smooth and free from projections and also equally adapted to anchor the end strap portion of a handle in an opening in the relatively thin and flexible side wall of a soft pocket book in a manner so that the pressure of the pull of the handle is distributed on said wall and the handle is prevented from being pulled out through the opening.

The invention further contemplates the provision of an anchor or holder which has an apertured at head through which the end strap portion is passed, the head having a slot through one side edge thereof and communicating with the aperture therein for the passage of the end strap portion laterally of the head from one face thereof to and beyond the other face and into the aperture with the end section of the end portion, after insertion in the aperture, lying in planar parallelism with the head and being clamped on the fiat body of the anchor that extends from the head opposite the slot and is coplanar with the head.

The invention further contemplates the provision of a holder or anchor having a at anertured head formed with slot or cut-out means to avoid the axial threading of the end strap portion into and through the aperture in the head and having a fiat body that supports the end section of the end strap portion of a handle and which has bendable clamping arms that extend laterally from opposite side edges thereof and are in confronting relation and are pre-set into a position whereby they can be rolled over into cylindrical form embracing the end section and clamping it tightly on the body.

The invention further contemplates the provision of a simple and sturdy handle holder which is capable of universal use in attaching handles to the side walls of any type of pocket book and which is formed with a ilat head and body, that carries clamping arms, the holder, when used with soft pocket books, having the head bridging the aperture in the side Wall through which the `end strap portionof the handle passes from the outside to the inside of the pocket book and the body lying in facial contact with the side wall below the Walls, having its arms arranged in the aperture in the l 2,860,396 Patented Nov. 18, 1958 side wall with the body bridging the aperture and the head engaging the side wall below the aperture.

These and ancillary objects are attained by this invention, the preferred embodiment of which is set forth in the following description and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein;

Fig. 1 is a perspective View of the anchor or holder, showing the same in its position when used with the relatively rigid side wall of a box-like pocketbook;

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary elevational view `of a handle installation for a box-like pocket book having relatively rigid walls, the inner lining being broken away to show the anchor or holder in elevation and with the end strap portion of the handle attached thereto;

Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 2, the thickness of the parts being exaggerated for clarity purposes;

Fig. 4 is a horizontal cross-sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the anchor or holder on a smaller scale and showing the anchor or holder in inverted position from that of Fig. 1 and in the position that it would assume in attaching the end strap portion of a handle to the side wall of a soft bag;

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary elevational view of a handle installation for a soft pocket book having relatively thin and ilexible side walls, the inner facing or lining being broken away to show the anchor or holder in elevation with the end strap portion attached thereto;

Fig. 7 is a vertical sectional view taken on line 7-7 of Fig. 6, and,

Fig. 8 is a horizontal cross-sectional view taken on line 8 8 of Fig. 6.

In the illustrated embodiment of this invention shown for exemplary purposes and referring particularly to Figs. 1-4, the strap end portion 10 is the pocket book end of a handle of any type. The strap end portion 10 is flexible and may be made of any cross-sectional shape. Such shape determines the shape and configuration of the slot 12, which, in this instance, is shown as substantially H- shaped and is designed to receive strap end portions of varying cross sectional shapes and sizes.

The slot 12 is formed in the fiat head 14 of au anchor or holder which is formed in oneepiece from sheet metal. Such material is, of course, preferable from an economy standpoint of costs and production but is not exclusive.

As shown in Fig. l, the anchor or holder includes the head 14 which is integral at its inner straight side edge 16 with a rectangular coplanar body 18. The body 18 extends from the center of the head and is substantially narrower than the head, which is enlarged transversely of the body. The body 18 has its inner end edge integralv with the side edge 16 and has a free transverse outer end edge 20. Intermediate the end edges of the body, arms 22 and 24 project laterally, in the same direction and in confronting, spaced apart relation, from the opposite side edges of the body. The arms are arranged or pre-set in` a plane at right angles to the body and are in parallelism;v The free ends 26 and 28 of the arms are formed to define suitable fastening means, which, as shown, includes prebending the ends transversely across their entire widths so that each end is inclined at an obtuse angle toward the corresponding free end of the other arm. In addition to the predisposition of the ends to bend toward each other and thereby cause the arms to be rolled into cylindrical form embracing the end strap portion 10, due to the angular relation of the ends to the arms, the end edge 30 of each end is made concave and the corners are protruded to provide prongs 32 at the ends of the end edges. The prongs 32, due to the concavity, project beyond the end edges and are adapted to bite into the soft flexible material of the strap e'nd portion. The prongs 3 engage the strap end portion in a manner not to tear or cut it but in a manner to engage it and compress the material until the prongs are enveloped thereby.

In the pocket book installation depicted in Figs. 2 to 4, the strap end portion 10 is passed through a slot or opening44 in the outer facing sheet 46 of the side of the box-like pocket book (fragmentarily shown) and through an aperture 48 in the relatively rigid member 50, which constitutes the side wall of the pocket book, before the impreforate lining 52 is secured to the inner surface of the substantially rigid member S0. After the end strap portion is passed through the opening and aperture, it is placed fiat on the outer face of the body 18 and the arms 22 and 24 are bent towards each other by means of a suitable tool (or, if necessary a hammer or the like may be used) which rolls the arms over simultaneously to clampingly embrace the end strap portion. The arms are rolled into substantially cylindrical shape, as shown in Fig. 4. The important feature as previously stated, in facilitating the rolling action is the fact that the free ends 26 and 28 of the arms are pre-bent at an obtuse angle to the main portions of the arms and toward each other. After the arms are bent into tight clamping engagement of the end strap portion to secure the handle to the anchor or holder, the handle is pulled to draw it out of the wall 50. Such action finally draws the bent arms into the aperture 48, as shown in Figs. 3 and 4, with the body 18 bridging vertically the aperture and in facial contact with the inner surface of the wall 50. The head 14 lies below the aperture in facial contact with the inner surface of the wall and serves to advantage in transversely spreading the pressure of the pull of the handle over the wall and also reinforcing the portion of the wall below the aperture.

Since the anchor or holder is formed from relatively thin sheet metal, it does not project considerably or, even noticeably, inwardly beyond the inner surface of the wall 50 and, therefore, creates no objectionable bulges or projections. Therefore, when the lining 52 is superimposed on the inner surface or face of the wall 50, it snugly overlies the inner surface of the head and body and conceals the same. The finishing lining completely hides the anchor or holder and, due to the fiatness of the latter, a continuously smooth, almost planar inside surface for the pocket book is provided. The inside surface is substantially free of protuberances Vdue to the reception of the arms and anchored section of the end strap portion in the aperture 48.

A pull on the handle, such as, in normal use, only serves to'retain the head and body of the anchor or holder in tight facial engagement with the inner surface of the wall 50. The slot 44 in the covering or facing sheet registers with the uppermost portion of the aperture and is of less area than the aperture, being only of an area to admit the end strap portion, so that the facing sheet conceals the aperture 48 in the wall S0.

In Fig. 5, the anchor or holder, which is the same as that shown in Fig. l, is illustrated in a vertically reversed or inverted position from ythat position shown in Fig. l. The holder, in Fig. 5, is shown in the position, that it assumesin the soft pocket book handle installation of Figs. 6to 7.

The'head 14 is flat and defines a washer with the slot 12 receiving the strap end portion 62. To enable the strap end portion to be easily introduced into the slot, a cut-out 33 is formed in the head radially from the central circular opening 34 in the head to and through the outer straight side edge 36 of the head. The cut-out 33 isslightly narrower than the opening 34 and is substantially, though not necessarily, the same width as the body 18. Preferably, though not necessarily, the cut-out 33 is narrower than the end strap portion 62. The bounding side walls 38 and 40 of the cut-out 33 are parallel to each other and their inner ends are beveled at 42, to prevent cutting the end strap portion 62 as it is passed therefrom into the opening 34. The H-shaped slot 12 communicates with the opening 34 which forms the enlarged center of the slot and provides the enlarged point of communication of the slot with the cut-out.

In the handle installation of Figs. 6 to 8, the pocket book side wall 54 is formed with an aperture 56 and a covering or facing sheet 58 has a registering aperture 60. The end strap portion 62 extends through the apertures and is secured by the arms 22 and 24 onto the fiat face 64 of the body. The face 64 comprises the outer surface in the installation of Figs. 2-4 and the inner surface of the body in the installation of Figs. 6-8. The end strap portion 62, after being clamped to the body by the arms, is pulled through the apertures into its operative position. As the handle is pulled to pull the end strap portion, the anchor is moved to a position where the head 64 begins to bridge or span the aperture 56 with the end strap portion bending at l66 and 68 to define the connecting section 70 thereof which is disposed within the aperture. As the end strap portion is pulled, the split ends 72 and 74 of the head engage the edges of the end strap portion at their bounding walls 72 and 74 and the end strap portion is forced laterally through the cut-out 33 to the opposite face of the head. At the same time, the head finally approaches the nal position and causes the end portion to bend more sharply at 66, the upper edges of the aperture confining the end portion and assisting in forcing it laterally through the cut-out automatically during the pull thereon.

When the lower edge of the opening 34 reaches its highest position, it cooperates with the adjacent edge of the aperture S6 in the Wall 54 to press the bend 66 into final form. The head in the final position is in facial contact, at its outer face, with the inner surface of the wall 54 and functions as a washer in bridging the aperture 56 in the wall and distributing the pressure on the wall from pull on the end strap portion and assist in preventing the end portion from being pulled out through the aperture.

Of course, the end strap portion may be first secured at one end to the anchor and then threaded at its other end through the apertures 56, 60 from the inside of the pocket book to the outside or the end to be attached to the anchor or holder can be threaded through the apertures from the outside to the inside of the pocket book and then have the anchor or holder attached thereto.

The end portion of the strap then may be moved laterally through the cut out 33 by merely pulling thereon. Once the end portion reaches the opening it expands to its normal cross-sectional shape, if it has been deformed in moving through the cut-out. Once it is postioned in the opening and slot, the end portion cannot pass back through the cut-out, which, of course, remains unobstructed, since there is nothing to straighten out the bend 66 and because the width of the cut-out is less than that of the end portion and further because any pull on the end portion would only cause it to pull the head up higher on the wall 54 and further accentuate the bend 66.

Thus, it can be seen that the end portion is automatically, in response to the positioning pull on the handle and end portion thereof, moved laterally through the cut-out, positions the anchor, as shown in Figs. 6-8 and forms the bends 66 and 68. The body assists by holding the secured end section of the end strap portion flat. The body aids materially in distributing the pressure on the wall 54 and additionally in distributing it below the aperture 56, so that the pressure is distributed above, below and on both sides from the aperture. The

imperforate lining 76 is secured to the inner surface of the wall 54 and covers the anchor and the secured section of the end strap portion. The fact that a slight bulge is created is not objectionable with a soft pocket book.

It is to be particularly noted that the same anchor or holder is used for installing the end portions in both the box-like pocket book of Figs. 2-4 and the soft pocket book of Figs. 6-8. Merely, by reversing it, the anchor serves for both installations. Thus, the anchor is universal, which means a tremendous savings, an important advantage in the highly developed art of pocket book making.

The reason that the anchor can be universally used is due primarily to two important factors, namely, having the free end .of the body extend beyond the arms and the relationship between the body and the head, that is, the relative placement thereof.

It can be seen in considering the installation of Figs. 6 and 8, that the body materially assists in the washer action of the head and it is important to have the free end extend beyond the arms in the bearing function. In the handle installation of Figs. 2-4, the head counterbalances, in its 'bearing action, the body and serves to hold the anchor at against the inner surface of the wall 50.

While a specic form of the invention has been shown and described, other forms may be realized as come within the scope of the invention, as defined in the appended claim.

I claim:

A universal one-piece anchor or holder for anchoring the end strap portion of a pocket book handle to the side walls of a box-type or soft pocket book; said holder comprising a at substantially rectangular body having opposing at faces and opposing side edges and adapted to bear flat at either of its opposing faces against the inside of a side Wall of a pocket book as a bearing washer and having opposing transverse end edges, a pair of clamping arms extending normal to the body and disposed integral with the opposing side edges at one of the end edges, said arms being disposed in substantially confronting relation and being spaced apart suciently to receive therebetween the end strap portion, which is placed axially on the body, and the arms being adapted to be rolled over onto the strap portion, an end extension extending axially from said one of the end edges beyond the arms and disposed coplanar with the body and deiining a bearing prolongation of the body and a transversely enlarged head on the other end edge of the body and extending axially and laterally thereof and disposed coplanar therewith, said head being formed with an opening transversely therethrough and having an outer edge disposed transverse to the body and said head having a slot extending through said outer edge and aligned with the axis of the body and communicating with the opening.
