UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

F. CORTEZ WILSON, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

POCKET FISHING-TACKLE BOX.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 324,443, dated August 18, 1885.

(No model.)

.To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, F. GoR'rEz WILsON, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, and a citizen of the United States, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Pocket Fishing-Tackle Boxes, of which the following is a full description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in Whll1- Figures 1 and 2 are perspectives showing the partition in different positions. Fig. 3 is an end view.

My invention relates to that class of pocket fishing-tackle boxes made in two halves or parts hinged together; and it consists in providing such box with a hinged or movable partition, a portion of which projects beyond the outer edge of the two halves of the box, so that when the box is opened the partition can be held by the thumb of the operator and lifted with that half of the box which is then uppermost, for the purpose of preventing the I such partition with devices for holding the hooks and smells, all as illustrated in the drawings. That which I claim to be new will be set forth in the claims.

In the drawings, A B represent the two halves of the box, which are hinged together, as shown, by hinges a. The edges ofthe box are provided with beads b, as usual, and the two halves of the box are provided with partitions forming compartments, as may be desired.

C is a partition or leaf, which is hinged to one part of the box by hinges c, as shown in the drawings; but I do not limit myself to any special hinge or mode of connecting or using the partition with the two parts of the box. The front edge of this partition projects a little beyond the beaded edges of the two parts of the box, as shown at b, Fig. 3.

e are pieces of cork or other suitable material, held in place upon one side of the partition by means of a piece or pieces of sheet metal or other suitable material, secured to the partition, and, forming a series of pockets, f, receive the corks.

g is a piece of sheet metal having two edges turned down, which edges h are soldered or otherwise secured to the partition, leaving a little space beneath g to receive the'snells upon the hooks.

i is a cup secured to the partition 0 around an opening made therein for the purpose of receiving gangs of hooks.

D is a catch hinged to the part B, and adapted, when the box is closed, to engage .with A and hold the two parts together.

In use the operator, holding the box in a nearly horizontal position in one hand, first loosensthe catch, as shown in Fig. 3, and then takes hold of the upper half of the box, with his thumb in contact with the front edge therehalf B of the box, although the box is not fully opened; but in actual use the box will be fully opened before the partition is changed from the position shown in Fig. I, in order to prevent the articles in the part A from falling out.

A number of hooks can be held in place by inserting the points in the corks e, and the smells can be securely held by placing them beneath the part 9.

I am aware that it is common to use a continuous long strip of cork in connection with a tackle-box to receive the points of hooks.

My construction has this advantage, that as I use common corks cut into two halves, if the corks become worn out they can be easily replaced, whereas it is not always easy to pro cure a long strip of cork to take the place of one worn out.

It is not necessary that the whole of the front edge of the partition 0 project beyond the edges of the box; but this is the most convenient construction.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. In a pocket fishing-tackle box, a movable viderl with a series of loops or pockets to re- IO ceive pieces of cork to hold hooks, and a reeess to hold the snells of fishhooks, substantially as specified.

F. CORTEZ WILSON.
