GERALD F GENTELLALLI FLETCHING COVER BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates to a fletching cover and more particularly to a fletching cover from which the individual arrows can be removed leaving the cover in place around the remaining arrows.

According to the invention a fletching cover is provided which constitutes a rectangular piece of material such as nylon in which a plurality of steel bands is stitched to flex the cover away from the arrow fletchings. An elastic band is preferably located in the top and bottom edges of the cover for closing the cover around the arrows on the bottom edge and over the tops of the arrows of the top edge. The cover is preferably latched by Velcro patches which are easily unlatched. Hence, when the arrows are mounted in a quiver with the fletching cover in place, any single arrow can be removed without removing the cover.

An object of the present invention is the provision of ing detailed description when considered in connection with the accompanying drawings in which like reference numerals designate like parts throughout the FIGS. thereof and wherein:

FIG. 1 is the side elevation of the preferred embodiment of the present invention in situ; and

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the embodiment of FIG. 1.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING Referring to FIG. 1, a fletching cover is shown generally at 11 surrounding the fletchings (not shown) of arrows 12 which are mounted in a conventional quiver. Fletching 11 has a top elastic band 13A stitched therein and a bottom elastic band 133 stitched therein. Steel bands are woven into the cover 11 at 14 A, B and C. The cover 11 is fitted together at 16 and 17 by Velcro strips (not shown).

Referring to FIG. 2, fletching cover 11 is shown again with top and bottom elastic strips built in at 13A and 13B. Velcro patch 16A cooperates with Velcro at 17A there being two other Velcro patches (not shown) that cooperate with Velcro patches 17B and 17C to effect a closure. A metal clip 18 is stitched into the bottom surface of cover 1 l and will clip on to one of the arrows 12 (FIG. 1) such as that shaded in.

OPERATION Referring back to FIGS. land 2, it can be seen that cover 11 is wrapped around the fletchings of arrows l2 and the Velcro patches'secur'ed effecting a closure. Elastic strips 13A and 13B pull the cover around arrows 12 and around the tops of the arrows. Steel bands 14A, 14B and 14C flex the cover outwardly and away from the arrow fletchings allowing for individual arrows to be removed without removing cover 11 until the last arrow with clip 18 secured to it remains.

It should be understood fo course that the foregoing disclosure relates to only a preferred embodiment of the invention and that it is intended to cover all changes and modifications of the example of the invention herein chosen for the purposes of the disclosure which do not constitute departures from the spirit and scope of the invention.
