SPRING CLIP Filed March 6, 1968 10AM, m aw? 1.5;

United States Patent 3,515,363 SPRING CLIP Julian V. Fisher, Carpenterville, Ill., assignor to Illinois Tool Works Inc., Chicago, 11]., a corporation of Delaware Filed May 6, 1%8, Ser. No. 726,992 Int. Cl. F16] 3/12 US. Cl. 248-71 12 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE The present invention relates generally to means in the form of spring clips attachable to surfaces of supporting workpieces such as the surface of a supporting panel, said clips being arranged to accommodate and support one or more elongated elements such as electrical conductors and the like. This application discloses one embodiment of the invention in the form of a one-piece spring clip of electrically insulating material such as a suitable plastic, said clip including a base member having means for attachment to a supporting work surface, and also including a flexible arm member extending from the general vicinity of one margin of the base member or plate, a portion of said arm superimposing the base plate and spaced therefrom to provide an opening for accommodating electrical conductors and the like. The free extremity of the arm terminates in the vicinity of a margin of the base plate oppositely disposed from the first mentioned margin and is provided with shoulder means adapted for interlocking association with complementary shoulder means formed integral with the base member.

It is an important object of the present invention to provide spring clips having improved, novel and highly efficient means for interlocking the free extremity of a yieldable arm with complementary means in the general vicinity of one margin of a base member or plate adapted for attachment to a work surface.

More specifically, the present invention contemplates a simple, yet efficiently operable clip wherein shoulder means associated with the free extremity of the spring arm may be interlocked with the base plate or member by insertion of the free extremity of the arm within novel channel means on the base member.

It is a further object of the present invention to provide an improved clip of the type set forth above, having a novel arrangement whereby the base plate member may be flexed laterally to assure firm engagement of the base member against the surface of a supporting part such as the surface of a panel.

The foregoing and other objects and advantages will be more apparent from the following detailed description when considered in connection with the accompanying drawing, wherein:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a spring clip which is representative of one embodiment of the present invention;

FIG. 2 is an enlarged side elevational view of the clip shown in FIG. 1, after said clip has been attached to a workpiece or panel, and a plurality of elongated elements such as electrical conductors are secured in position with the free extremity of the clip arm interlocked with the adjacent upper marginal portion of the base member or plate;

FIG. 3 is a fragmentary perspective view of the upper portion of the clip, more clearly to illustrate the structural features of the shoulder means at the free extremity of the arm and the complementary shoulder means associated with the upper marginal portion of the base member or plate, said shoulder means being shown in disengaged relation;

FIG. 4 is a view of the clip as seen from the left of FIG. 1;

FIG. 5 is a fragmentary enlarged sectional view taken substantially along the line 55 of FIG. 3; and

FIG. 6 is a fragmentary enlarged sectional view similar to FIG. 5 showing the shoulder means of the clip arm interlocked with the complementary shoulder means associated with the upper margin of the base member or plate.

Referring now to the drawing, wherein like numerals have been employed to designate similar parts throughout the various figures, it will be seen that one embodiment of a spring clip contemplated by the present invention is designated generally by the numeral 10. The clip 10 is preferably formed of suitable plastic, electrically insulating material having the required degree of inherent firm resiliency. The clip 10 includes a base member or plate 12 and an arm member 14 integral with the base 12 and extending laterally from the lower margin thereof as shown in the drawing and the extending upwardly so as to define a space 16 for accommodating one or more elongated elements such as electrical conductors 18, FIG. 2. Opposed margins of the base member or plate 12 are preferably enlarged so as to provide surfaces 20 adapted to engage the complementary surface of a workpiece or panel 22. A section 24 of the base plate 12 is of reduced cross-section so as to substantially enhance the lateral resiliency thereof as will hereafter be explained.

Formed integral with and extending laterally of the central portion of the plate section 24 is a stud type fastener member 26. This fastener member 26 is preferably of the type which will permit telescopic association thereof with a complementary aperture of a workpiece or panel, as illustrated in FIG. 2. The shank of the fastener 26 is soformed as to facilitate collapsing thereof as it is inserted within the work aperture, and upon complete insertion it will spring back to its normal maximum diameter thereby preventing inadvertent or unauthorized removal of the fastener. Shoulders on the stud of the fastener 26 are so disposed with respect to the laterally yieldable plate section 24 and the surfaces 20 that they will not spring radially outwardly into locking engagement with the surface of the panel 22 oppositely disposed from the base of the clip, until after the surfaces 20 have been pressed firmly against the outer surface of the panel. Thus the lateral yieldability or resiliency of the plate section 24 cooperates in maintaining firm engagement of the surfaces 20' against the outer surface of the work or panel member 22 once the fastener stud has been completely inserted by providing take up means to compensate for tolerance variations in panel thickness. Other forms of attaching means can also be utilized as will be apparent, and may include, for example, adhesive means along the base plate 12 or its enlargement 20.

The free extremity of the arm 14 is provided with shoulder means 28 located in the vicinity of complementary shoulder means 30 forming a part of a lip member 32. The free extremity of the arm 14 initially may be sprung away from the lip 32 sufliciently to permit the association therewith of one or more elongated elements such as the electrical conductors 18 previously referred to. After assembly of the conductors within the space 16 bounded by the resilient arm 14, the shoulder means of the arm may be telescopically associated with a complementary recess 34 formed by the space between the lip 32 and the adjacent marginal area of the base plate 12. The lip 32 is sufficiently resilient so as to permit complete insertion of the free extremity of the arm 14 and ultimate interlocking of the shoulder means 28 thereof with the complementary shoulder means 30. It will be recognized that the disposition of the. complementary recess 34 can be angularly varied to include a vertical as well as a horizontal position relative to the base plate 12 where the require ments of installation or accommodation of conductors warrant such a design.

Attention is directed to a recess 36 provided at the free extremity of the arm 14. This recess is adapted to receive and interlock with a complementary protuberance 38 on the plate member 12, FIGS. 3 and 5. Interlocking of the protuberance 28 with the complementary recess 36 in the arm 14 secures said arm against any possible movement in a direction transverse to the direction of telescopic insertion of the free extremity of the arm with the recess 34. Thus any forces acting longitudinally of the conductors 18 will not cause disengagement of the free extremity of the arm 14 from the abovementioned recess 34. By providing longitudinal strengthening ribs 40 and transverse strengthening ribs 42 along the outer surface of the arm 14, said arm may be made relatively thin and yet possess the desired degree of yieldable firmness.

From the foregoing, it will be apparent that the present invention contemplates a spring clip construction of very practical and inexpensive form. The one-piece structure makes it possible to produce the clip by the practice of conventional molding methods, and thus the cost of manufacture is kept to a minimum. The improved structure for associating the free extremity of the resilient arm with the adjacent marginal structure of the base member or plate facilitates the ease with which the inter locking of such parts may be accomplished and assures against unauthorized separation of the parts once the interlock has been established. By employing the flexible lip arrangement, the ease with which the free extremity of the arm, including the shoulder means 28 associated therewith, may be interlocked with the shoulder means 30 of the lip 32 is greatly facilitated. This same resiliency also serves to maintain said interlocked relation after the shoulder means of the arm and lip member have been interlocked. Any tendency to cause relative movement between the arm and the plate in a direction transverse to the direction of insertion of the free extremity of the arm is effectively resisted by the use of the protuberance and recess arrangement described herein.

Thus the present invention contemplates the provision of a new and improved spring clip in which the resilient arm thereof is secured positively against separation in one direction due to the presence of the shoulder means, and in a transverse direction because of the presence of the protuberance and recess arrangement referred to above. By employing the thickened end margin of the plate and integral laterally yieldable relatively thin plate extending therebetween, a firm grip of the clamping surfaces of the plate member against a supporting work surface is assured.

. While for purposes of illustration certain structural features of a sprtng clip of the type contemplated by the present invention have been shown, it should be understood that other structural modifications and changes are contemplated without departing from the spirit and scope of the appended claims.
