y Patented Aug. is, ieee.

Application sied october 19, 19er. serial ng. assess.

To all lwhom Iit 'may ce1/teem:

Be it known that l, Louis Lirscn, a citizen of the United States, and resident of St. Louis, Missouri, have invented certain new Aand useful Improvements in Parcel-Tying Devices, of which thefolloiving is a specification containing a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the acconi-y panying drawings forming a part hereof.

My invention relates to a parcel tying device, and the object of niy invention is to provide a simple, inexpensive device for tying envelops, or other articles, which may be, easily and readily applied to any' parcel, and may be easily removed therefrom, thus obviating the necessity of tying knots and untying they same. y

To the above purposes, my invention consists in certain novel features of construction and arrangement of parts, which will be hereinafter more fullv set forth, pointed out in4 the claims, and illustratedin the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of my iniproved device with a portion of the string applied to the saine removed.; and Fig. 2 a perspective view of niy device showing the lsame in use.

Referring by numerals to the accompanying drawings :#1 indicates the metallic 'liastener portion of iny device which is stamped or struck lroin e piece of sheet metal ol the required niaterialand size.

Zindicates the taperedcnd portion, which is provided with an elastic tongue 5%, which is preferably cut from the nietal.

4 indicates senil-circular recesses or notches formed in the base of the tongue.

5 indicates a string used in tying the parcels, and in order to fasten the string 5 to the tapered portion 2, a knot 6 is tied in the string .and the tonguev 3 is elevated or sprung, and the string 5 is locatr-zd4 in the semi-circular notches 4.

7 indicates a hook which is formed inten gral with the fastener, provided with an upturned end 8. is located near one edge of the' fastener. Formed on the opposite edge of thelastener is an elastic hook 9, the .saine being fornied integral with the fastener. Forined at one edge of the said yhook 9 is a seinicircular re- @ess 10.

The hook 7, as will be seen,l

Formed or eut from the elastic hook Q is. an elastic tongue or hook ll provided with. a

seinicircular recess l2, disposed. oppositely to a semicircular recess 13 formed in the hook 9'. Normally, the tongue 1i lies in a plane above the hook Q. The hook 9 and the tongue l1 are 'respectively provided with. upturned ends la and 15.

Having fully describen my' invention, l will non'v proceed to state how it is applied to the tying of parcels: The .string 5 is secured tothe fastener, as heretofore described, and when it is desired to tie orbind 'the parcel, such as a bundle of envelops, or anyv other articles, together, the metallic fastener is held by the operator -on the parcel approximately on the center thereof, asillustrated, with one hand, and by means of the other hand the 'string is passed around the end and rear of said bundle and then brought around the opposite end, and theny passed over the hook 7 end aro'und one side and the rear and 75v then the other side of the bundle, and then passed beneath vthe elastic hook 9 and in the recess l() and over the edge of the hook Q, and then inallv 'passed between the elastic tongue li and the hoolrQ 'and in the recesses i2 and i3,

The resiliency of the hook 9 and the tongue 1l .and the natural clamping nature thereol', and the manner in which the string is Wrapped around the edge of the howl; Q and between' the elastic ytongue il' and hoek and disposed in the notches formed in said hook 9 and tongue il will securely hold the string in afirni isition, and in order to remove the fastener ,troni the parcel, the opera tion heretofore described is reversed.

By my improved fastener, the nccessityoi' tying and untying the string is obviated, and it can be used repeatedly a number ol' times for tying up parcels of uniform size. Should ne it be desired touse the fastener for tying parcels of various sizes, a sufiicient amount nl string is employed to aeconunodatc larger parcels.

Having fully described my invention, what l claini is: Y

A parcel tying device, comprising a plate, a resilient tongue iorincd integral 'with one end thereof, there being a pair of oppositcly disposednotches formed in the sides of said tongue adjacent the point where said tongue Sil joins the body of the late, a air of hooks In testimony whereof,` have signed my formed integral with t e opposlte end'of the name to this specification, in presence of plate at the corners thereof, aresilient tongue 'two Subscribing Witnesses. l formed' integral with one of the' hooks, and LOUIS LITSCH.
