UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

NATHAN IV CRANDALL, OF MERIDEN, CONNECTICUT, ASSIGNOR OF ONF- HALF TO GEORGE WV. JOPSON, OF SAME PLACE.

KEY-RING.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 368,135, dated August 9, 1887.

Application filed April 28, 1887.

To aZZ whom, it may concern.-

Be it known that I, NATHAN \V. CRAN- DALL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Meriden, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Key-Rings; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and figuresof reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

My invention relates to improvements in key-rings, or implements or devices for bolding keys and the like. It is more particularly designed for a key-ring, but is applicable to any portable or other article to which it is desirable to attach a locking device or a tag or plate bearing the owners name; and it consists in the novel features of construction more fully hereinafter set forth and claimed.

Heretofore similar devices were provided with a tag or name-plate secured to the holdingring by a smaller ring or link, which in practice has been found to give unsatisflictory resuits.

The object of my invention is to obviate, wholly or in part, some of the objections existing in prior devices by attaching the tag direct to the ring and combining therewith a locking device, as will presently be shown.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side view of a ring of my construction which is best adapted to carry out the spirit of my invention, the tag being shown slid away from the opening in the ring. Fig. 2 is a view in section of the ring and tag when closed, showing the position of the springtongue or locking device and the stop to limitthe inward movement of the tongue when inserted between the divided ends of the ring.

E is the tag or name plate, which may be of any approved style and of any suitable material. The sleeve A is formed at one end of the tag, for the double purpose of securing said tag and closing the opening G of the ring F. Arecess, B, is formed in the side of the sleeve A, for the purpose of admitting the Serial No. 236,525. (No model.)

spring-tongue 0 between the ends of the ring F. A stop or rest, D, is formed in the sleeve A, for the purpose of limiting the inward movement of the springtongue C.

In the operation of the device the springtongue 0 is slightly raised, when the tag and sleeve may be carried to either side, thus revealing the opening in the ring, when keys or other articles may be placed upon or taken from the same in a manner too well understood to need further explanation. To close the ring, slide the tag toward the opening until the ends of the ring are covered by the sleeve, when the spring-tongue will, by its own tension, pass between the ends of the ring, socurely locking it in that position.

Having thus described my invention,what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s-

1. In the key-ring herein described, the combination, with a ring, of a tag provided with a sleeve for securing said tag, and a locking device, substantially as described, and for the purpose specified.

2. Ihe combination, with a ring, of a tag provided with a sleeve having an opening on its side, and a spring-tongue adapted to work within said opening, all substantially as shown and described.

3. The combination, with a ring provided with an opening on its side, of a tag or plate provided with a sleeve for inelosing and a spring-tongue for interposing the divided ends of said ring, all substantially as shown and described. 8

4. In a key-ring, the combination, with an open ring, of a tag or plate provided with an eye or sleeve having an opening on its side.

a springtongue adapted to pass within said opening and interpose the divided ends of 90 said ring,and a stop tolimit the inward move ment of said spring, substantially as shown and described, and for the purpose specified.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

NATHAN \V. CRANDALL.
