PATENT OEEICE.

TEMPORARY BINDER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N o. 785,911, dated March 28` 1905. Application filed November 10, 1904. Serial No. 232,197.

To all whom it may concern.'

Be it known that I, FRANK L. NoLD, a citi- Zen of the United States, residing at Louisville, in the county of Jefferson and State of Kentucky, have invented a new and useful Temporary Binder, of which the following is a specification. I

This invention relates to the art of binding sheets in book form, and while capable of use in connection with any character of loose sheets is particularly designed for temporarily binding bank-checks in such a manner as to permit of the convenient removal of the checks and to retain the stubs in the book and to permit of said stubs being collectively removed and retained in a bound condition.

Another object of the invention is to permit of the convenient substitution of new sheets after the old sheets have been removed, and in this connection it is an important object of the invention to permit of the use of the ordinary split and headed paper-fasteners as the means for connecting the sheets with the cover of the binder and to employ said fasteners to maintain the stubs or sheets collected in bound condition when removed from the device.

With these and other objects in view the present invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts, as will be hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawings, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims, it being understood that changes in the form, proportion, size, and minor details may be made within the scope of the claims without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a plan view of a temporary binder embodying the features of the present invention. Fig. 2 is a detail perspective view of the seat member-of thebinder. Fig. 3 is a cross-sectional view on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a similar view showing the positions assumed by the fasteners and the sheets inthe operation of applying and removing the latter. Fig. 5 is a detail view of a portion of one of jthe sheets, showing the shape of the opening therethrough for the reception of the detachable fastening device. Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 1 with the sheets removed and showing a slightly-modified form of seat member.

Like characters of reference designate corresponding parts in each and every figure of the drawings.

The body of the present binder includes front and back covers 1 and 2, respectively. connected by a iiexible back 3. To the inner sideof one of the cover members, preferably the back cover, and at the inner edge thereof there is secured a seat member 4, which consists of a flat metallic strip or plate terminally and intermediately fastened to the cover by means of rivets 5 or other suitable fastening devices. Between the intermediate rivet and each terminal rivet the plate is offset or bent upwardly, as at 6, so as to between the offset portion and the cover, and in the rear edge of this offset portion there is formed an angular or substantially L-shaped slot 7, with the outer corners of the slot rounded or beveled, as designated at 8. The inner or transverse member 9 of each slot is directed outwardly toward the adjacent end of the plate, whereby it will be understood that the L-shaped slots are reversely disposed for a purpose as will be hereinafter explained.

While any character of loose sheets may be bound in the presentdevice, the specific form of sheets shown in the drawings embody the checks 10 and stubs 11, separated by the usual perforated or weakened lines to facilitate the detachment of the individual checks from one another and from the stubs. The terminal stubs of each sheet are provided with openings or perforations 12 adjacent the rear edge thereof and in the form of an oblong slot, as best shown in Fig. 6, and disposed longitudinally of the sheet. The corresponding slots or openings of the several stubs of course register, so as to receive the stem or shank 13 of an ordinarysplit and headed paper-fastener, there being binder-strips 14 of cardboard or other suitable material applied to opposite sides of the collection of stubs and pierced by the fastenings, so as to form a protection for produce a pocket or interspace the stubs and prevent tearing thereof when removed from the binder as well as when located therein. The shanks or stems of the fasteners project at the back of the collection of sheets, and the members of each fastener are bent back against the back sheet, so as to constitute head members, which are located opposite the terminal head 15.

In fitting the leaves within the covers after having been connected by the fastenings 13 the shank of one of the fasteners is engaged with one of the L-shaped seats in the seat member or plate 4, and then the intermediate portion of the back edges of the collection of sheets is drawn or bulged upwardly, as indicated in Fig. 4 of the drawings, so as to draw the fastenings toward one another sufciently to enter the shank of the other fastening into the other L-shaped seat, after which the sheets are released, and in assuming their normal flat condition the fastenings are spread or separated, so as to force the shanks thereof into the outer extremities of the transverse members 9 of the slots or seats, whereby the sheets will be effectually retained withinthe binder. To remove the collection of sheets, the thumb or a linger may be inserted beneath the back edges of the collection of sheets and between the two fasteners, so as to draw one of the fasteners into the inner end of its seat, whereupon it may be drawn outwardly through the combined entrance and exit member of the slot, and afterward the other fastener' may be removed in a similar manner. After having been removed the stubs or sheets are maintained in a collective or bound condition through the medium of the fasteners 13, and other sheets may then be fitted within the covers of the binder.

To obviate the necessity of bul gingthe sheets, as in Fig. 4, to introduce the fastenings 13 into the notches 7, I have provided a slightly-modified form of notch, (shown in Fig. 6,) wherein the outer edge of the notch is given a pronounced straight bevel, as indicated at 8', while the opposite edge of the notch preferably extends at substantially right angles to the adjacent longitudinal member 6. In this form of seat member when the sheets are applied thereto the Shanks of the fastenings engage the beveled outer edges of the notches and are thereby automatically shifted inwardly, the sheets of course bulging upwardly to permit of said inward movement of the fastenings until the latter reach the inner ends of the notches, when they snap outwardly into the branches 9 thereof and the sheets are secured to the member 6. The difference between the two seat members is very slight, and while the same result may be obtained with the form of seat shown in Figs. 1 and 2 it cannot be so readily accomplished as with the form shown in Fig. 6.

In connection with the present binder it is of course designed to provide a plurality of fillers or collection of sheets in order that un- -used sheets may be conveniently substituted whenever desired.

Having thus described the construction and operation of my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is#

1. The combination with front and back covers, of a pair of seats carried by one of the covers with the entrances of the seats at the inner ends thereof, a plurality of sheets, and fasteners piercing the sheets and projected at the back thereof with their projected ends formed for detachable engagement with the respective seats, said fasteners being separated by a space greater than that which separates the entrances of the seats.

2. The combination with front and back covers, of a plate secured to one of the covers and provided with substantially L-shaped slots intersecting one edge thereof with the transverse members of the slots extending outwardly toward the respective ends of the plate, a plurality of sheets, and a pair of fastenings piercing the sheets and projected at the back thereof with the projected portions formed for engagement with the L-shaped slots, said fasteners being separated by a space exceeding that which separates the entrance members of the slots.

3. The combination with front and back covers, of a plate secured to one of the covers and provided with odset portions spaced from the adjacent cover, the back edges of the offset portions having L-shaped slots formed therein with the transverse members of the slots extending outwardly toward the respective ends of the plate, a plurality of sheets, and fasteners piercing the sheets and projected at the back thereof with the projected portions formed for engagement with the slots, said fasteners being separated by a space greater than that which separates the entrances of the slots.

4. The combination with front and back covers, of a pair of offset seat members carried by one of the cover members and provided with L-shaped slots with their transverse members directed outwardly toward the top and bottom edges of the cover, a plurality of sheets, and a pair of split and headed fastenings piercing the sheets with the projected ends of the members of each fastener bent back against the back of the sheets and entered beneath one of the seats with the shank portion engaged with the transverse member of the slot thereof, said fasteners being separated by a space greater than the space which separates the entrances of the slots.

5. A temporary binder including a cover and a seat member secured thereto and provided with a pair of odset portions spacedl from the cover, each offset portion being provided with a substantially L-shaped slot intersecting the inner edge thereof, and the transverse members of the slots being direct- IOO IIO

IO wardly toward the respective ends of the seat member, and the outer edge of each slot being beveled inwardly from the adjacent end of said Seat member.

In testimony that l claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in I5 the presence of two witnesses.

FRANK L. NOLD.
