JAMES W. KEELEY, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
RULE-HOLDER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 712,140, dated October 28, 1902.
Application led May 7, 1902. Serial No. 106,367. (No model.)
To all whom, it Hetty concer-7c:
Be it known that I, JAMES W. KEELEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Rule or other Holders, of which the following is a specication.
The objects of the present invention are, first, to provide a simple, durable, and comparatively-inexpensive rule-holder which may be readily secured to overalls or trousers in a convenient position.
Another object is to provide means whereby when a rule is placed in the holder it cannot drop out by reason of a person taking positions calculated to dislodge the same, as is now customary with holders now in use.
The invention consists of the improvements hereinafter described and claimed.
The nature, characteristic features, and scope of the invention will be more fullyunderstood by reference to the accompanying drawings, forming part hereof, and in which- Figure I is a perspective View of the ruleholder embodying the invention, and Fig. II is a central sectional view of the same.
Referring to the drawings, a is a casing, preferably of sheet metal, and, as shown in the drawings, is of one piece. This casingis open at its top and bottom and upon one side it is provided with an opening b, whose use will be described hereinafter. Opposite this opening b are two ears c, pivoted to which is a lever d. This lever is provided with a rounded nose e and is so pivoted that an eccentric movement is imparted to it.
f is a piece of spring metal which is clasped loosely over the end of the case, as shown at g, in order that it may be free to move inward when the lever is moved into the position shown in Fig. II. In this figure it will be noticed that the nose e of the lever d, by reason of the opening b, has come in contact with the spring f, and taken together with the spring h upon the opposite side of the casing it is obvious that a rule or similar object will be effectively clamped and held in position until the lever is released.
t' is a pin by means of which the holder c may be attached to the wearing-apparel of the workman. The pin t' is in the form of an ordinary safety-pin and is suitably attached to the casing a by bending a lip on the upper and inner edge of the casing around the shank of the pin, as shown.
In use the holder would probably be placed immediately above a pocket. In this event the rule or other object would be slipped through the casing and permitted to rest upon the bottom of the pocket and then clamped into position by means of the lever d. The spring h at one side of the casing bears against the edge of the rule when the latter is pushed into the casing and will ordinarily suiice to hold the rule in position; but when it is desired to hold the rule very firmly the lever is pressed down, and the rule is thereby clamped tightly in the casing.
The described device is simple, durable, and comparatively inexpensive in manufacture. It may be readily applied to the Wearing-apparel of workingmen and eectively holds the object against displacement.
It will be obvious to those skilled in the art to which my invention appertains that modications may be made in details without departing from the spirit thereof, hence I do not limit myself to the precise construction and arrangement of the parts hereinbefore set forth, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings; but,
Having thus described the nature and objects of my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is as follows, viz:
1. A rule-holder comprising a casing open at top and bottom and having two opposite sides, springs arranged within the casing at both sides thereof, means for attaching the casing to wearing-apparel, and a clampinglever adapted to clamp a rule tightly in the casin g and between the said springs, substantially as described.
2. A rule or other holder adapted to be attached to wearing-apparel and comprising a casing having two opposite sides and open at top and bottom and having an opening at one side, springs secured Within the easing at In testimony whereof Ihave afxed my sigeaeh side thereof, a clamping-lever pivoted nature in the presence of two witnesses.
to the easinor and Workin@ through the opening at one sde of the sami-e and against one of JAMES W KEELEY 5 said springs, and a pin for attaching the cas- Witnesses:
ing to Wearing-apparel, substantially as de- W. J. JACKSON,
