Description

J. G. RIDER. FOUNTAIN PEN CLIP. APPLICATION FILED JULY31. 1907.
Patented A n'z o, 1909 o jmbewtoa a %%M Gummy Wu-mum JAY G. RIDER, OF ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS.
FOUNTAIN-PEN CLIP.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented April so, 1909.
Application filed July 31, 1907. Serial No. 386,416.
To all whom it may concern: Be it known that I, JAY G. RIDER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Rockford, in the county of Winnebago and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fountain-Pen Clips; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and "exact descri tion of'the invention, such as will enable ot ers skilled in the art to' which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to improvements in clips for fountain pens and other pocket utensils, and the object of my invention is to provide a safe means of carrying a fountain pen or other pocket utensil either in the pocket or secure in the clothing, thus pre' venting the danger of loss and preventing the leaking of the pen and insuring easy 4 employed. The lower end of the wire is then access to articles carried by keeping the pen point always in an upright position; it also prevents the pen from rolling from the desk. With this object in view my invention consists in the construction and combinations of arts as hereinafter described and claimed;
11 the accompanying drawings, the figure shown is an ordinary cap for a fountain pen partly in section and showing my invention applied thereto.
a represents the ordinar- Y cap of a fountain pen provided with a ventole in its end, and shown in the drawing as screw threaded, although this is not absolutely necessary.
1) represents the clip made of a spring wire one end of which is screw threaded, as shown at c, to engage the vent-hole in the cap. Said wire is then bent into a large loo as shown at (Z, and its outer end is then ent downwardly so as to spring against theicap, it being roughened, as shown at e at this oint of contact. This roughness, however, is not absolutely necessary as the clip will act efficiently without it, but is preferably bent outwardly, terminating in a rounded end f.
In utting the pen inthe pocket, the user takes old of the wire and slips the pen into the ocket, whereupon the part e, on account of t e spring of the clip, holds the clothing firmly between the cap and the clip, thus efliciently securing the pen in the proper posi tion and preventing itsloss.
My device is simple and economical in manufacture, and adapts itself to pockets of difierent depths so that the bottom of the pen holder will reach the bottom of, the pocket, whether the ocket is short or long, thus preventing the liolder from separating from the cap and thereby soiling the cloth in Its'hould be notedthat the clip is of substantially the same length as the cap so that it will securely fastenthe pen, no matter what the depth of the pocket is. My device can be easily adjusted to the pocket or clothing with one hand, and as' easily re moved. The clip bein made in one piece is less liable to get out 0 order, and being securedin the upper end of the cap a long sprin can be used which distributes the tension or a long distance so that crystallization and breaking of the metal of the clip is impossible.
It is well known that the clips now on the market are more or less unsightly, complicated, difficult of adjustment insecure and easily broken. They, arealso more or -less liable to scratch the pen holder. These difficulties have been wholly overcome by my invention.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is 1. The combination of a pen cap having one end closed and a spring clip made of a single piece of metal and having one end se cured to the center of the closed end of the cap, substantially as described.
2. The combination of a pen cap provided with ascrew threaded hole, and a clip composed -of a single piece of metal wire screwed in said hole, said clip being bent into a loop, and having a portion near its lower end engaging said cap, substantially as described.
3. The combination with a pen cap, having a screw threaded hole in'one end, of a and composed of a single piece of metal wire bent so as to form a large loop at the. top, having a part near its lower end normally engagmg said cap, and having a pro ecting lower end, substantially as described.
In testlmon whereof, I affix my signature, in presence 0 two witnesses.
' JAY RIDER.
