SPECIFIGATIQN formingpart of Letters Patent N 0. 743,017, dated November 3, 1963.
Application filed March 26, 1903. Serial No. 149,715. (No model.)
To all whom, it may concern.- 1
Be it known that I, GEORGE W. MoGiLL, a citizen of the United States, andaresident of Riverdale-on-Hudson, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Spring-Clips, of which the following is a specification.
My invention has for its object to provide a novel, simple, and effective spring-clip made of a single piece of suitable spring-wire and which is susceptible of being rapidly and economically manufactured, which may be readily applied in securing together papers and similar articles, and which will be free from all tendency to abrade, deface, or tear the papers or other articles to which it may be applied or to work loose or displace itself from its correct position thereon while in use.
In the accompanying drawings, making part of this specification, and in which similar reference letters and numerals indicate corresponding parts, Figure 1 represents a side View of one configuration of the clip. Fig. 2 is a similar view in perspective of a modified construction of the clip. Fig. 3 is a top view of Fig. 2. Figs. 1 and 5 are side views in perspective of the clip, showing in each figure, respectively, the top of the clip modified. Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 5 and showing the clip applied in securing together several sheets of paper,
The clip is provided with aframe orbody part resembling somewhat in its configuration the letter X, in which the single round wire from which it is fashioned is folded in manner to provide a top part or spanning-saddle, with the wire continued from the ends thereof in two converging and depending arms, which near their center are folded up adjacent to and parallel with themselves and in the same plane in manner to provide them two auxiliary members, the arms proper crossing each other diagonally below the center of the saddle in manner to provide between them a space in which to receive the edges of the articles being clipped and facilitate the after entrance of the latter between the superimposed surfaces of the clip.
In the drawings, A represents the top of the clip, or what I designate its spanning-saddle. b 12 represent the ends or shoulders of the same; 1 l, the depending arms of the clip; 0 c, the central folds or elbows of the latter, and 2 2' the auxiliary members of such arms.
In constructing the clip the wire is first folded down'in manner to provide the top part or spanning-saddle A, the shoulders I) b, and the depending arms 1 1, the latter being folded upwardly at their elbows c c on lines adjacent to and parallel with their lower looped parts and in the same plane therewith, providing the arms their auxiliary members 2 2. The arms are now crossed diagonally below the saddle at e in manner to provide an angular space between their looped parts in which to receive the edges of the articles being clipped. The members 2 2 of the arms may then be continued up toward the saddle A without bending, as shown in Fig. 1, or be bent at the points marked (1 d in manner to diverge outwardly from those points into alinement and continuous spring bearing with the upper partof the opposite arms, as
shown in all the other figures of the drawings.
The top or spanning-saddle of the clip may be straight, as shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3, or provided with an arched center, as shown at g in Fig. 1, or made wholly arched, as shown in Figs. 5 and 6, the arching of the whole or part of the top or saddle providing better results in the clamping feature of the device where a limited number of papers are being clipped by admitting of the shoulders of its top or saddle resting below the clipped edges of the papers, and the ends of the wire forming the clip may extend upward beyond its shoulders, as shown in Fig. 2, and be provided withbulbous terminals transverselyprojected from opposite sides of the clip across the plane of its top or saddle, as shown at ff in Figs. 2 and 3, the object of such opposite transverse projections of the wire terminals being to hold the fiat top of the clip in proper position upon the clipped edges of the paper and of their bulbing to save the papers from being abraded by them. The wire in the top or spanning part of the clip is flattened and widened vertically throughout its length by compression in manner to increase its resistance to the torsional strain to which it is subjected on papers and other like articles being inserted between the bearing-surfaces of the resilient clamping-arms of the device.
The clip thus constructed is applied in clamping and. securing together papers and like articles by introducing the edges of the latter into the angular-shaped space 6, intermediate the folds c c of the clip-arms, and pressing the clip down upon the papers until its top or saddle Arests upon-the same, spanning and riding it diagonally, with its superimposed arms bearing against the opposite surfaces of such papers and clamping the latter between them, as shown in Fig. 6, in which H indicates the papers.
1. An X-shaped spring-clip composed of a single wire folded at its center in manner to provide the clip a top part or saddle having an arm depending from each end thereof and converging below it in manner to cross each other some distance beneath its center, both of the arms below such crossing being folded upwardly in manner to provide them two auxiliary members occupying lines adjacent to and parallel with that part of the arms depending below such crossing, and such-auxiliary members continued upward toward the top of the clip, along the upper part of the opposite arms, and in continuous spring-bearing therewith.
2. An X-shaped spring-clip composed of a single wire folded at its center in manner to provide the clip a top part or saddle having an arm depending from each end thereof and converging below it in manner to cross each other some distance beneath its center, both of the arms below such crossing being folded upwardly in manner to provide them two auxiliary members occupying lines adjacent to and parallel with that part of the arms depending below such crossing, and such auxiliary members continued upward toward the top of the clip. I
3. An X-shaped clip composed of a single wire folded at its center in manner to provide the clip a top part or saddle having an arm depending from each end thereof and converging below it in manner to cross each other some distance beneath its center, both of the arms below such crossing being folded upwardly in manner to. provide them two auxiliary members occupying lines adjacent to and parallel with that part of the arms depending below such crossing, and such auxiliary members continued upward toward the top of the clip, the wire in such top being fiattened and widened vertically throughout its length by compression in manner to increase its resistance to the torsional strain to which it is subjected on papers and other like articles being inserted between the bearing-surfaces of the arms of the device.
