PAPER CLIP OR HOLDER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 601,384, dated March 29, 1898. Application filed December 31, 1896. Serial No. 617,647. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, MATTHEW P. SoHooLEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Homestead, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Paper Clips or Holders, of which the following is a specification.
My present invention relates to paper clips or holders, the construction of which will be hereinafter set forth, reference being had to the annexed drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a face view of my improved clip or holder; Fig. 2, a side view of the same; Fig. 3, a similar View looking at the clip from the opposite side; Fig. 4, a cross-sectional view on the line a: m, Fig. 2; and Fig. 5, a face view of a modified construction.
The object of my invention is to produce a clip or holder which, while simple in its construction, is easy of application and certain in the performance of its functions.
The clip or holder hereinafter set forth lies flat upon or against the papers which it binds together, presenting no projections or appreciable points upon which other objects may catch. Furthermore,by its construction there is caused no puckering or bendingof the papers.
Referring to Figs. 1 to 4, inclusive, it will be seen that the clip is formed of a continuous piece of Wire. Either springsteel or spring-brass may be employed or any other material possessing the requisite or necessary spring. It is bent to form and comprises the three straight sides or members A, B, and G, sides A and B being connected by the curved loop or section D and sides B and C by the curved loop or section E. Sides A and O are in direct contact with each other, as is clearly shown in Figs. 2 and 4. It will also be noticed that the side C does not occupy a position intermediate the sides A and B, but stands in a line which is at approximately right angles to a plane passed through the said sides A and B, as indicated in dotted lines, Fig. 4. Side A extends down below loop E and forms a finger or projection 11, while side 0 stops short of loop D.
It will be noted upon reference to Fig. 1 that the lower loop E is sharper in its bend than the upper one, and this tends to make the spring of the fastener come somewhat more directly in the upper loop. This, however, is not essential.
The wire of which the device is formed is folded under tension, and this always tends to keep the parts in their proper relation.
In Fig. 5 a slightly-modified form is shown. Here the side which corresponds to side B is not made straight, but comprises two members F and G, which form with side A a triangle. The sides or members A and 0, however, retain their same relation to one an other.
In applying the clip to the papers to be held finger a is placed against either the front or rear outside sheet and the clip then pressed down. The papers then pass in between the sides A and O, forcing the same apart, and the clip is forced down until the edges of the sheets come into contact with loop D.
From actual use I find that the clip lies flat against the papers; the papers are securely held, there being no tendency for the clip to snap or spring off, and that no projections of consequence are presented against which other articles can catch. 7 v
I am aware that prior to my invention paper-clips have been made somewhat similar to mine in their general idea; but so far as I am informed none are free from objectionable projections which stand out from the papers which they hold. So, too, various card or ticket holders have also been devised wherein a sharp point or end is employed in con nection with the body of the holder.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is- 1. A paper clip or holder formed of spring material and comprising the sides or members A, B, and 0 connected as described by the loops D and E; the short side 0 resting directly throughout its length upon side A; the side B inclining upward from loop or bend D to the loop E, to one side of the members A and O; the side A being extended forming a projection a.
2. A paper clip or holder formed of spring material having a long member A; a shorter member 0 lying. in direct contact throughout its length with said member A; a projection a. formed as a continuation of said member A, and a connection between the opposite ends of said members A and C, lying to one side thereof and inclining upwardly from the member A to the member C, substantially as shown.
3. Apaper clip or holder formed of spring material and comprising the sides or members A, Band 0, sides A and B being connected by a Wide loop D; sides B and C being connected by a narrower loop E, the sides 10 A and O lying in direct contact with each other, and side B inclining upward fromloop D to loop E, substantially as shown and described.
In witness whereof I hereunto set my hand in the presence of two witnesses.
MATTHEW P. SOHOOLEY.
