Description

PATBNTED SEPT. 17, 1907.
A. MIKULIGH.
PENCIL RETAINER.
APPLIUATION FILED AUG. 2, 1906.
WITNESSES:
ANDREW MIKULIGH, or SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA.
PENCIL-RETAINER.
no. 866,500. I
To all whom it may conccm: Be it known that I, ANDREW MrKULIcH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Sacramento, in the county of Sacramentoand State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Pencil-Retainers,
of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to devices for holding pencils,
fountain pens and the like from falling or working out of the pocket. Its object is to provide a cheap, simple, neat, practical device of this sort which is madein one piece with no springs or rubber bands to become expansible ring or circle A; the ends of the wire being then bent to form the arms 2 at opposite sides of thering portion A, and substantially in line with one another and approximately at right angles to the plane of the ring A. The extreme ends of the wire are bent to form rounded buttons 3 so that the ends of the arms will not stick into the fabric when the device is used; the buttons serving also as guides to direct the fabric in between the arms and the article 4 which is to be held in place. i
The diameter of the ring A is a little greater than the pencil, pen or other article to behold, and the arms are each inclined inward slightly towards the axis of the ring A. In practice this inward inclination is regulated according to the diameter of the ring and the size of the pencil so that the latter can easily be slipped through the ring from that side of either arm which is adjacent to the opening 5 of the ring A; the arms standing diagonal to'the axis of the pencil and straddling' the pencil loosely; ringA will also fit loosely on the pencil. The ring being adjusted to the proper point on the pencil, pen or other article to which it is applied, the arms 2 are given a slight lateral twist in opposite directions to cause the ends of the arms to slip sidewise over the pencil and bring the axis of the pencil within the angle included by each arm and the end of the ring to which that arm is attached. This serves to lock the device Speeifieatmn of Letters Patent. Application filadAugust 2,1906. Boris-1N0. 328,844.

on the pencil and it can not slip endwise because of the gripping action on opposite sides of the pencil providd by the ends of the arms and the central ring A.
.The lateral movement in opposite directions to lock the device on the pencil causes the ring to turn into a plane diagonal to the axis of the pencil to engage the latter; and the inclination of the arms 2 towards the axis of the pencil is suflicient to make the buttons 3 press inward on opposite sides ofthe pencil and securely hold the device on thepencil. At the same time it is quickly unlocked by a. reverse twist of the arms, moved and relocked, or removed and applied to another pencil. By pencil in this specification I mean generally any article such as a pencil, pen 'or other like article which is to be held securely in the pocket or to some other part of a garment.
A- retaining device of this sort is cheap to manufacture, simple, adjustable, and reversible since either end of the device works equally well. It can be made to fit any ordinary size pencil by opening out or closing the ring A a trifle as may be needed. There is nothing to get out of order, and its grip is positive on the garment and there is no'd anger of losing the pencil. It
fits a pocket edge or a hem or any other part of a garment.
While it is possible to make the device with one arm 2 as shown in Fig. 3 I preferithe construction first described, but do not necessarily thereby limit myself to such construct-ion.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim 'and'desire to secure by Letters Patent is An improved pencil retainer, consisting of a piece of spring-wire bent to form a ring which will normally puss loosely over a pencil, saidwire having' an end bent to form an arm extending transversely to the plane of.the ring, said arm inclined toward the axis of the ring and co-ncting therewith so that when the arm is shifted sidewise of the pencil in one direction it will slip over the pencil, and in so.doing it will be placed on tension and give a lateral twist to the ring to cause the latter and the end of said arm to bind on the pencil and hold the device in position thereon, said retainer being released from its grip on the pencil by shifting the arm in the opposite direction back ANDREW MIKULICH.
