Abstract

The invention relates to a closeable case (1) for storing a plurality of cards, coin collections and similar objects having substantially the same dimensions. The inventive case has a bottom part (2) and a cover (3) which are pivotally connected along a common hinge axis (4) in addition to an insert which is joined to the bottom part (2) and the cover (3) and has a plurality of inner pockets (6) which are open in the direction of the hinge axis and which spread out when the bottom part (2) and the cover (3) are opened. Each inner pocket (6) has a front wall (7.1-7.13) and a rear wall (8.1 - 8.3) which are fan-folded in relation to each other and laterally connected to each other in pairs.

Description

lockable case

The present invention relates to a closable pouch for containing a plurality of cards, collectible coins and the like articles having substantially the same dimensions, with a bottom part and a lid part, which are pivotally connected together along a common hinge axis, and with an insert, with is connected to the bottom part and the lid part and having a plurality opposite to the hinge axis to open and straddling the opening of the bottom part and the lid part inner pockets.

Such a case is known from DE 295 07 168 Ul. The liner is fan-shaped folded here, so that folds in each case form a kind of bag, however, has no continuous partition between the individual pockets. Single Debit cards are plugged into the fan folded deposits. The inner pockets and the check cards are therefore not completely separated. On the underside of the bags are also open. Thus the inserted objects are not kept well, but are spread far apart, depending on the degree of opening of the case, so that the articles can easily fall out. A further disadvantage is that the magnetic strips of credit card and the like. influence each other, and possibly also to demagnetize. In addition to smaller items such Sammlermunzen, by falling down or

BESTATIGUNGSKOPIE push out with an open case through the bottom opening.

Furthermore, a Brieftaschenein- set is known from US Patent 3,483,909, which also uses numerous internal pockets belong to an application. Here, however, a complicated connection technology for use is required, and only the funnel-like openings are formed, which facilitate the insertion up to a certain point, but then may result in a very narrow opening, so

10 that there is a risk that the cards are not pushed far enough into the individual pockets and can also more easily fall out.

This raises the task of a sealable pouch. - to provide that allows to manufacture on the one hand the base part and lid part made of various materials, on the other hand has an insert can easily be inserted taken out at the inserted objects in an open case and and stored damage- free of the aforementioned type.

This object is achieved with the features of claim 1.

_ ,. A fan-shaped fold, also called zigzag fold may be achieved firstly accordingly stiff sheet material manufactured in a relatively simple manner from a stamped blank. This results in a uniform and aesthetically perfect picture of the liner. Side Verbin0 compounds are furthermore provided which are so soft that the front and rear wall of each pocket spread sufficiently opened case, this spread is limited by the lateral connections so that falling out of the cards is eliminated even by a hurried motion. 5

The size of the case is preferably adapted for the objects. Ideally, the case for keeping credit and phone cards can use, since a continuously same size is given, and is placed on a careful preservation of special value.

but it can also be other items, such as photos, collector coins, business cards and the like store according to their size, without the scope of the claim is left.

The interior pockets where the objects are stored, can fan out like a bellows when opening the cases. Removal and recapping of the object may easily occur. Each inner bag is made from front and rear walls, so that the individual cards can not directly come into contact with each other may not transmit their magnetically inserted information. The lower edges of the inner pockets are tapered toward one another and are closed down.

These lateral compounds of front wall and back wall should preferably produce a light spring tension so that the front wall and the rear wall are pressed against each other and the case can be easily closed again.

It is proposed that the lateral connections at the

are front wall or mounted on the rear wall and the back of the adjacent, belonging to the same inner bag rear wall or front wall contact only in a positive and under spring pressure.

In a particularly advantageous manner, such a compound can be achieved in that the lateral joints are elastic with the front wall or the rear wall associated tongues, comprising the edge of the rear wall or the front wall and to the adjacent front and rear walls are manufactured in one piece. In this has proven to be advantageous in that the tongues engage over at least 25% of the contacted by them front and rear walls in the closed state of the cases.

It is advantageous to fold the total insert from a single sheet section. To be suitable for this relatively rigid polyolefin or polyvinyl chloride films have proven that allow both a sufficient degree of elasticity and a non-resettable fold.

It is expressly noted that other materials, such as paper materials, cardboard, textiles, leather imitations or leather, can be used for the deposit.

To illustrate the invention this will be described using an exemplary embodiment. The figures show in detail:

Figure 1 is a side perspective view of a case with a drawn-out detail.

Figure 2 is a detail view of a blank piece.

Fig. 3 is a folded Zuschnit piece of Figure 2 in view from above.

. FIG. 3a shows an alternative to Figure 3 embodiment;

Figure 4 is a schematic representation of the folded blank piece in a side view.

Fig. 5 is a case cover with insertion guide.

Provided that the following not otherwise stated, the following description applies to all figures. Fig. 1 shows a closable pouch according to the invention. The case has a rigid bottom part 2 and a rigid lid part 3 which are made in the present embodiment of a thermosetting plastic material, for example by colored ABS, PC, polystyrene or polypropylene by injection molding.

The two parts are connected in a known per se manner via a hinge axle 4 laterally with compatible hinge elements with each other. On the opposite longitudinal side of the hinge axis have bottom part 2 and cover part 3 to a locking mechanism. 5 It may be here to a spring-loaded snap fastener, a magnetic closure, a Velcro closure, a codable locking mechanism or the like.

The dimensions of the substantially block-shaped holders are so adapted that a plurality of cards are to be accommodated in credit card format in individual pockets 6 an insert 60th In each pocket 6, a single object is preferably housed. In case opened, the interior pockets gape slightly apart and individually accessible, so that the objects are easily removed or inserted.

The hinge axis 4 is disposed in the illustrated detail of Figure 1 with a distance A of about 5 to 10 mm just outside of the bottom fold of the inner bags. 6 This centricity Ex makes it possible that the fan-fold open along an arc B and spreads the inside pockets.

Each of the inner bags 6 in each case has a front wall 7.1 - to 8.3, which are folded a total lepo- Rello-like (zig-zag) to each other and connected laterally to each other in pairs - 7.3 and a rear wall 8.1. The Falzknicke 10 and 12, the fan-fold parallel to the hinge axis. Laterally, the front and rear walls are respectively connected in pairs. So that each pocket is closed sides and bottom and open at the top. The liner 60, which represents the total interior pockets 6, to the bottom part 2 and the cover part 3, so that upon opening of these parts is also a spreading of the inner bags. The connection of the outer flat parts of the insert 60 with the bottom part and lid part may, for example, by adhesive bonding 19, or, as shown in Figure 5, also has a push-in guide 22 is possible. The insertion guide 22 is provided with resilient bars, which ensure an exchange at the same time gutere mounting of the insert 60, einmit ei

The present at the side edges of the interior pockets lateral links 18 allow a change in distance of the top edges 10 of front wall 7 and rear wall 8 in the sense of itself bellows fanning interior pockets 6. Here, the lateral links 18 have a resilient bias, the successive presses the inner bag slightly.

Fig. 3 shows an embodiment where the lateral joints 18, the front wall 7 and the associated rear wall 8 enclose each pocket 6 side, and only by the bias voltage inherent to the material together. A fixed connection is not required for this. It is only necessary to produce a positive connection, which is enabled by a contacting at the edges Laid tongue 13.2, 13.4, 13.6, 13.1, 13.3, 13.5. Therefore, when opening the associated inner bag a certain relative movement between the enclosing part of the tongue 13 and the form-fitting thereof applied back of the respective pocket wall can be observed, which facilitates the Aufklaffbewegung.

The tongue 13 is laterally bent around the edge of the front wall 7 and rear wall 8 each connected with such and to the respective adjacent edge of the wall which belongs to the same inner bag. 6 This is illustrated in Fig. 3. The numbered with the circled numerals 1, 5 and 9 back walls are covered from the top of the tongues 13.2, 13.4, 13.6, said tongues are arranged on the vertical upright side edges of the respective front walls with the circled numerals 3, 7 and 11. FIG. Accordingly, it holds that the tongues 13.1, 13.3, 13.5 at the respective rear walls of the encircled by the numbers 1, 5

Components designated 10 and 9 are arranged so that the respective front walls are surrounded laterally at their edges.

In addition thereto, Fig. 3a shows a altivernative execution, 5 approximate shape. Here, each of tabs 13 are provided laterally on the front and rear walls which are connected to each other with their surfaces facing each other over one side tabs bonding 20th This bond can be replaced by welding. Here, too, can be beobach0 th that the individual pockets 6 are provided at the opening under a resilient bias in the closing direction, which is caused by the deformation of the side tabs for the fanning out of the inner bags.

25, since the material of the pad from a relatively stiff and therefore resilient material, for example a plastic film is that is easily foldable along a fold line beyond, creating a resilient connection between the individual adjacent pockets. In addition, 0 is provided, that the tongues 13 are arranged alternately in pairs. Accordingly, the front wall of each pocket 6 is covered on its front side from the associated, seated on the rear wall tongue and the rear wall on the other side in front of the seated on the front wall tongue. 5

Thus we arrive at an inner compartments of the deposit, which has a relatively complete material thickness and still allows for ease of use.

Further, it can be seen that the tongues 13.1 - 13.6 are integrally connected to the adjacent front wall 7 and adjacent the rear wall. 8 In this way, which can in each case belonging to the case inside part are made in one piece low cost. In addition, there is provided, in particular Fig. 2 shows that the front walls 7 and the back walls or 14.1 and 14.6 comprise 8 on its encompassed by the respective associated side of the tongue of a spring web which from the tongue 13 of the respective rear and front wall with is encompassed. The spring bar 14 is not pre-folded, so that a rigid final suspension at the respective rear wall and front wall is formed which is held by the tongue 13 comprising them under constant preload. The prestressed spring bars, however, are eager to harness the respective shaped inner bag in the closing direction and aufzuklaffen something so that the inserted cards can be easily taken out one hand with two fingers and also allows the inner pocket close again.

The use of the case is formed in the present case from a single blank piece 17 of FIG. 2. It is seen that the height of each tab tongue 13.1 - 13.6 slightly smaller than the height of the associated front wall 7 and rear wall 8 is. This is realized by recesses 16, the side of the respective base portions 7.1 - 8.3 are arranged - 7.3 or 8.1. The recesses 16 correspond to similar recesses formed in the spring arms 14.1 - 14.6.

In this way, the lower link is 12.1 - 2 cm interrupted, for example by perforation - 12.3 between the front wall 7 and rear wall 8 over a length of about. 1 This offers the advantage that StAmutzansammlungen be avoided in the lower region of the inner pockets. 6 The edge can also be more easily bend. The interruptions 15 are advantageously arranged on both sides of the inner side. 6 Can be reached in this way to a seitensyrame- metric design of all inside pockets with the advantage that can be avoided with a simple cutting of the intermediate piece 17 in particular fitting problems due to the three-dimensional deformation of the tongues 13 and the spring webs fourteenth

The pocket depth is dimensioned such that between the upper edges 10, 11 of front wall and rear wall and the top edges of the inserted into the inner sides 6 maps a projection 21 is formed.
