MINIATURE FLASHLIGHT WITH KEY ATTACfiMENT Filed Oct. 20, 1964 INVENTOR. 610N157 SCI/M4972 United States Patent 3,310,668 MINIATURE FLASHLIGHT WITH KEY ATTACHMENT Sidney Schwartz, New York, N.Y., assignor to Bantam- Lite, Inc, New York, N.Y., a corporation of New York Filed 0st. 20, 1964, Ser. No. 405,119 Claims. (Cl. 240-6.4)

This invention relates to miniature flashlights and more particularly is directed to such illuminating devices combined with means for attachment to a key handle.

Among the objects of the invention is to provide an improved miniature flashlight construction of the character described having meansfor mounting the flashlight on the handle of a key to direct a light beam from its light bulb along the longitudinal axis of the key to illuminate the keyhole and having a finger pressure actuated switch for energizing the bulb located for convenient operation while simultaneously gripping the flashlight and key between thumb and forefinger for keyhole insertion, which flashlight shall comprise few and simple parts that are relatively inexpensive to manufacture and assemble in quantity production, which flashlight shall include a molded plastic case coacting in a novel manner with a spring metal switch plate and key anchor element, which flashlight shall be neat in appearance, rugged in construction, and convenient to mount on the key handle, and which shall be practical and eflicient to a high degree in use.

Other objects of the invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.

The invention accordingly consists of features of construction, combination of elements and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter'disclosed, the scope of the application of which will be indicated in the claims following.

In the accompanying drawing in which an illustrative embodiment of the invention is shown:

FIG. 1 is a bottom plan view of the flashlight constructed to embody the invention shown mounted on the handle of a key.

FIG. 2 is a sectional view taken on line 22 in FIG. 1 showing details of the interior construction.

FIG. 3 is a front view of the flashlight and key as seen substantially on line 33 in FIG. 2, and

FIG. 4 is an exploded view showing the casing, cartridge and switch plate and key anchor element comprising the flashlight shown in FIGS. 1 to 3, inclusive.

Referring in detail to the drawing, denotes a key and miniature flashlight combination wherein key 11 mounts a miniature flashlight 12 on its handle 11a. Flashlight 12, constructed to embody the invention, is seen in FIG. 4 to comprise a casing 13, a switch plate and key anchor element 20 and cartridge unit 25. A

Casing 13 is here shown as an integral open top boxlike structure which may preferably be molded of any suitable plastic resinous material, as for example, polystyrene, and having similar opposite side walls 14, front wall 15, rear wall 16 and bottom wall 17. Front wall 15 has a centralized cutout 15a which may extend to the open top of casing 13. Rear wall 16 has a centralized cutout 16a spaced from the open top providing a crosspiece 16b. Bottom wall 17 has a relatively large opening 17a and carries a tab 18 which is attached along the rear thereof to bottom Wall 17 and extends forwardly in offset parallel relation to underlie opening 17a. Bottom wall 17 and rear wall 16 may also be integrally formed with a rearwardly projecting link 19 having a central opening 19a for attachment to a keychain or the like '(not shown). Cartridge unit 25 may be of any suitable construction having a light bulb 26 located in the front surface thereof "ice and a pressure actuated switch 27 located in the adjacent top surface. As here shown cartridge unit 25 is a battery-bulb-switch unit similar to those shown and described in my copending application Ser. No. 298,210 filed July 29, 1963, and entitled Miniaturized Flashlight With Replacement Cartridge Unit. Cartridge unit 25 is seen to comprise a holder 25a of any suitable electrically nonconductive resinous plastic having a cavity sized and shaped to accommodate and securely retain disc shaped miniature battery 28 oriented with its center terminal exposed for contact by switch 27. Light bulb 26 may be of the lens tipped type having a pair of pigtail leads, one of which is suitably electrically connected, as by spot welding, to the leaf spring which comprises switch 27, the other lead being likewise electrically connected to the bottom terminal of battery 28, as is clear from FIG. 4.

Switch plate and key anchor element 20, as seen in FIG. 4, may be made of a suitable leaf spring sheet metal having a corrosion resistant finish, such as brass, chrome or precious metal plating, and is stamped and formed into a substantially U-sha-ped configuration having a hollow sized for receiving cartridge 25 therein. Element 20 has two opposite walls or plates 21 and 22 interconnected by a substantially right angular intermediate section 23. Plate 21, serving as a top wall closure and depressible switch plate, is contoured to fit into the open top of casing 13 and has a rear end downwardly bent portion 21a terminating in a rearwardly projecting tongue 21!), the

latter being offset from the plane of plate 21 by bent portion 21a to extend into rear wall cutout 16a. Tongue 21b normally abuts crosspiece 16b to limit the upward movement of plate 21 to a rest position flush with the top of casing 13. The rear region of plate 21 engages and closes underlying switch 27 when flexed downwardly, that is, inwardly, from the rest position in the direction of the arrow shown in FIG. 3, tongue 21b being free to move away from crosspiece 16b into cutout 16a.

Intermediate section 23 extends between the front of cartridge unit 25 and casing front wall 15 and has an opening 23a aligning with cutout 15a into which opening and cutout the lens tip of bulb 26 may project.

Plate 22, serving as an anchoring means for retaining the parts of flashlight 12 in assembly as well as for mounting the latter on a key handle 11a, may be narrower than plate 21, being shaped and sized to lie along the interior surface of casing bottom wall 17 and having a step 22a to position a rear portion 22b in bottom wall opening 17a spaced from and substantially parallel to tab 18. Plate rear portion 22b is formed with a depression 22c extending toward tab 18, depression 220 being provided with an opening 22d having a rim formed to engage the threads of screw 24 which extends through an aligned openinglSa in tab 18.

The initial assembly of flashlight 12 is readily accomplished by first sliding cartridge unit 25 into the open side of switch plate and keyholder element 20 so that switch 27 faces plate 21 and light bulb 26 is positioned to extend into opening 230.. Element 20 with cartridge 25 so positioned therein is then placed into the open top of casing 13 by first inserting tongue 21b into rear wall cutout 16a and then dropping intermediate section 23 into place behind casing front wall 15. Screw 24 is then inserted through tab opening 18a and threaded into opening 22d. Tightening of screw 24 anchors element 20 in position against casing bottom wall 17 retaining all the parts in assembly. Application of pressure to depress the rear region of plate 21 will be seen to also depress switch 27 to make electrical contact with the center terminal of battery 28 to energize bulb 26.

, To mount flashlight 12 on the handle 11a of key 11, screw 24 is first removed from opening 22d. The key handle 11a is then inserted in the slot between tab 18 s,s10,ses

a and plate rear portion 22b. Since element with cartridge is now loose in casing 13, depression 220 may be urged upwardly to clear the key handle 11a permitting the handle opening 11b to register with tab opening 18a and receive depression 220 therein. Replacement and tightening of screw 24 completes the assembly of the key and flashlight combination 10.

The improved miniature flashlight with key attachment herein disclosed is seen to achieve the several objects of the invention and to be well adapted to meet conditions of practical use. As various possible embodiments might be made in the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the disclosed construction, it is to be understood that all matters herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing are to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
