Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 18, 1915.

Application filed June 17, 1914. Serial No. 845,693.

vice of this kind which when not in use can collapse or fold uponitself from both front and rear and from side to side, thereby re ducing the carrier to a very compact form, a

and one which can be conveniently carried in a pocket.

The invention consists of the novel features of construction hereinafter fully described, and pointed out in the claims and shown in the accompanying drawings, in which,

Figure 1 is a front elevation of the carrier opened up to-receive a box of shells. Fig. 2 is a plan view. Fig. 3 is an end elevation. Fig. 4: is anend elevation with the carrier closed. Fig. 5 is a front elevation with the carrier closed. 7

In constructing the carrier, I preferably use aluminum, and broadly described the carrier consists of four angled corner posts, 1 designating the front posts and 2 the rear posts, these posts are each provided at their lower ends with a horizontal web 3 upon which the four corner portions of a box containing the shells may rest, the angled posts engaging the vertical end edges of the box. The rear posts are extended upwardly, and bent over to, form hooks t adapted to engage a belt, or other portions of a garment, whereby the carrier may be supported from the person. The end posts are connected to each other by suitable/metal links- To the front posts and upon their end faces are pivoted upper and lower links 5 and to the rear posts and upon their end faces are pivoted upper and lower links 6, the links 5 and 6 being respectively pivoted together and these links are also pivotally connected to an upright bar 7. This construction unites the front and rear posts and also enables them to be folded or brought together. Stops 5 are carried by the front posts 1 and limit movement of the links 5 and similar. stops 6 carried by the rear posts 2 are adapted to be engaged by the links 6. These posts are shown in their closed or folded position in Fig. 4. The two front posts are connected to each other by links 8 which in turn are pivotally connected to each other and similar links 9 con nect the rear posts.

By means of this construction, it will be noted that all of the posts are pivotally connected and can be opened up into the position shown in Fig. l or closed as shown in Figs. 4 and 5.

What I claim is 1. A cartridge box carrier comprising corvner posts having at their lower ends box supporting webs, and pivoted links connecting said posts respectively to each other, each link having one end connected to a post and the other end portion to an adjacent link, said links resting in a horizontal position when the device is in use, the posts being movable toward a common center when the links are in folded position.

2. A carrier for cartridge boxes consisting of four corner members adapted to maintain a vertical position and to support a box when in open position, pivoted links connecting said corner members, and means carried by two of said corner members for attaching them to a garment, said corner members when in closed position being mov-- able toward each other and toward a common center.

3. A device of the kind described comprising angled corner posts, the rear posts having their upper ends extended and bent to form hooks, links pivotally connected to each other, and to the front corner posts,

, links pivotally connected to each other and to the rear posts, links pivotally connected respectively to each other and to the front and rear posts, and upright bars pivotally connected to the links last mentioned, as and for the purpose set forth.
