T o cZZ whom. it may r-nnr'ern Be it known that I, GEORGE B. Easron, a citizen of the United States, residing ai Los Angeles. in the lcounty of Los ngeles, State. of California. have invented new and useful lmprovernents in Key-Pouches, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to in'iprovements in key pouches.
lt is the object of this invention to pro vide an improved construction of key pouches. whereby any type of key ring can be readily attached to and removed from the pouch, and which will particularly facilitate the detachment and removal of the circum ferentially split Atype of key rings, so that the key ring may he used with or without the pouch as desired.
A further object is to provide a key ring' attachment for key pouches' which is' detachable from the pouch proper, so that an old and worn pouch can be removed there from andthe fastener attached to a new pouch.
The invention primarily resides in a stud formed with open lended tubular reduced end portions and enlarged shoulder portions at the base of the reduced end portions adapted to abut against the insides of the pouch flaps, said reduced portions being interiorly threaded and adapted to extend through perforatious in the pouch liaps.I and removable .bindingplates formed with threaded stems adapted to be screwed into the reduced ends of the stud to attach the stud between the flaps, as hereinafter more fully described, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which; v v
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the key pouch showing the invention as applied. Fig. 2 is a view in vertical section on the line 2--2 of Fig. 1, as seen in the direction indicated by the arrows. Fig. 3 is a detail in perspective `of the detachable key ring stud, showing one of the fastening plates` in ar detached position.`
In the ordinary well known key pouches the key ring retaining,r stud is usually permanently attached to the. pouch flaps, thus rendering it diil'cult or impossible to remove the key ring. The present invention overoonu--s this` ditliculty and at the saine time permits the pouch being detached from the stud when damaged or worn and replaced by a new pouch. By this arrangement the stud and the binding plates thereof may be made of silver or other valuable metal and suitably engraved and ornamented, as this portion of the pouch is more durable than the material of which the pouch is made. and will outwear a number of pouches.
ln the drawings. 5 and (i indicate the upper and lower tlaps of the pouch which maj*v be integral or connected together at one edge in book form as is common in key pouch cfuistruction, these iiaps being provided with the usual snap fasteners comprisingr the spring); stud 7 and the button 8, by means of which snap fasteners the outer edges of the flaps 5 and t3 may be secured together.
for securing;r a key rinot 9 between the flaps 5 and 6. This stud consists of a cylindrical body portion 10, which is enlarged adjacent its ends to form annular flanges ll and having` reduced end portions or project-ions l2 formed centrally of the annular flanges 11. T he projections 1Q are designed to pass through opposed Aperforations 13 in the flaps 5 and (i, as shown in Fig. 2. An opening 14 extends longitudinally through the stud axially thereof and is threaded at its ends to receive correspondingly threaded stems l5 on fasteningl `plat-es lo, The plates 16 are here shown as circular and formed. with milled peripheral edges. The outer faces of the plates 16 constitute name plates and may be engraved as desired.
In the application of the invention one of the projections t2 is inserted through the perforation .1.3 in one of the pouch flaps 5 or 6, and theplate 16 is screwed thereon to clamp or bind the fiap between the plate and the shoulder l1. The key ring 9 is then placed over the stud and the other pouch flapis folded over so that. the other projection 12 will pass through the perforation 13 therein. The top plate 16 is then secured in place on the stud so as to effectively bind the other flap in position. The pouch may now he used in thc usual manner.
From thc foregoing` it will be seen that the key ring Sloan be readily renioved and attached hy removing either of the fastening plates 1t', and s -paruting the pouch vfrom the projection 12, and that tho keydfing' stud can he easily removed entirely from the pouch flaps by uncovering both fastening plates 16 and thereafter rcattached to other pouches as desired.
The present. invention resides in the stud I What lclam is: f' I In Witness that I claim the foregoing I In a key purse, the combination with the have hereunto subscribed my name this 25th leaves of the purse, of a. defachalble key-ring day of November, 1913. retainin ost, interorly tn-eafe end rof 5 ,jectionsgo said post passing t-lnoughpthe GEORGE B EASLON purse lenves,' and 'removable fastening plates Witnesses: 'en gageable with theprojectons on the bind- 4 EDMUND A.
