FRANZ A. FULLER, OF NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOR TO THE J. E. MEBGOTT COMPANY, OF NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, A CORPORATION OF NEW JERSEY.

BAG-FASTENER.

Specification of Letters Patent. A

Patented Oct. 5, 1915.

Application filed February 23, 1915. 7 Serial No. 9,817.

and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bag- Fasteners, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it pertains to make, construct, and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to letters of reference marked thereon, forming a part of this specification. p

The present invention has reference to improvements in that class of bag fasteners for bag frames which are especially adapted for pocket books, satchels, purses and the like, and the invention relates more fully to a novel construction of a looking or holding catch connected with the frame sections thereof.

Themain purpose of this inventionis to provide a pocket book, purse or other frame section, with an auxiliary latch or catch which shall be neat in appearance, and shall be of a simple, strong and-durable construction, with the view of additionally holding the frame members together and independently operated from the. fastener.

' lVith this object ofmy invention in View, the same consists in a novel bag fastener hereinafter set forth, and furthermore, this invention consists in the various arrangements and-comb1nat1ons of the parts thereof,

all of which will' be fully described in the accompanying specification, and then finally embodied in the clauses of the claim thereof, which are appended to and form an essential part of this specification.

In carrying out my invention,I make use of the structure illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 represents a front elevation .of a bag frame showing my improved fastener secured thereto. Fig. 2 represents an enlar ed longitudinal sectional side elevation tak en on line w-w of Fig. 3, looking in the direction indicated by the arrow. Fig. 3

represents an enlarged vertical section of theframe members taken on line a0- m of Fig. 1, the fastener on the top of the sections not being shown. an enlarged longitudinal sectional side elevation taken on line y- Q/ of Fig. 3, looking in the direction indicated by the arrow. Figs. 5 and 7, and 6 and 8 represent reof modified forms of my improved fastener; and Fig. 9 represents a modified form of spring.

Similar letters of reference refer to like parts throughout the specification and drawings.

A bag frame fastener made in accordance with my invention, may be applied to any ordinary or desired form of frame. That shown in the drawings consists of two hinged frame members a and b, of substantially the shape shown in Fig. 3. Near the middle portion of the frame member a, I secure a fastener or catch 0, of any desired form or configuration, and in any desired manner, designed to be'bro'ught into holding engagement with a suitable nosing or projection formed on the frame member I), ,to firmly secure the bag frame sections or mem' bers in locked position. The middle por- Fig. 4 represents spectively, vertical and longitudinal sections tions of the frame members a, and 6 form receiving pockets, one of which serves to receive the novel spring of my improved fastener;

The improved fastener'consists of a latch stud e mounted to turn in suitably-alined apertures formed in the frame member I), which is preferably made from cylindrical metal rod, the outer end being provided with an annular flange l", which bears against the outside of the frame member 6 and serves to l1m1t the inward movement of the latch when it is being assembled. A

pull piece 9, as for instance, a ring, loop inposition by a spring, comprising two members lettered respectively 9' and 70., so

formed that it is actuated by the flattened portions ZZ formed on the stud and located between the flanges mm, by means of which the stud is rotatively secured to the frame member 6.

Both of the spring members y' and are formed from a single flat piece of metal, of approximately the width of the inside of the channeled frame member I), and of a length to be received into the receiving pocket of the said frame member. The member A: is centrally chambered as illustrated, and is provided with the integral inturned ends a, said ends being designed to receive the ends of the member 7', as clearly indicated, and by means of which the members are held together in their operative position. One end of the member is provided with an offset portion 0, said offset portion acting as a stop to limit the movement of the said spring member j and to prevent accidental displacement of the two members when once assembled.

In assembling the device, the member 7a is first placed into the receiving pocket of the frame member Z), and the latch stud e is inserted through the alined apertures in said frame member, with one of the flattened portions Z of the stud bearing against the spring member is. The offset portion 0 of the spring member j, is then inserted as far as possible into the inturned end a of the spring member 76, so as to permit the free end of the spring member j to be sprung under and shoved forward into engagement with the opposite inturned end a of the spring member 76, when the offset portion 0 of the spring member j will engage with the inturned end a, as clearly illustrated in Fig. 5 of the drawings.

By turning the pull-piece g in'either direction, the latch stud 6 with its flattened portions, will actuate the spring members j and 71?, so as to cause the latch-head i to become either engaged or disengaged from the aperture formed in the frame member a.

The construction and arrangement of the spring members j and 7c are such as to exert a downward pressure upon the latch stud c, to maintain the latch in its locked position, and in order to enable the latch-head 2' to freely enter and engage with the aperture 10 in the frame member a, I cut away a portion of the flange m, nearest the latch head,

as at 9, (see Figs. 2, 3 and 4) so that when the two frame members a and b are brought together with the latch head i in the position shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings, the beveled portion of said latch head will engage with the under side of the aperture 79 in the frame member 02, and owing to the clearance above the cut-away portion 9 of the flange m and the top edge of the aperture in the frame member 6 in which it is located. the latch stud e will be enabled to exert an upward pressure against the spring member 7a and be raised sufficiently to enable the latch head 2' to freely pass over the lower edge of the aperture 7) in the frame member a, the lower edge of the aperture 39 not be ing in alinement with the lower edge of the aperture in the frame member 6, but above it, so that the spring is can exert its downward pressure to force the latch-head 2' into locking engagement with the frame member a.

In the modified form illustrated in Figs. 5 and 6 of the drawings, I secure within the channel of the frame section a a fiat spring 7*, which may be secured thereto in any convenient or desired manner, the spring r being provided with an aperture 8 designed to receive and have holding engagement with the latchhead i, which in this case, is made longer than the one illustrated in Fig. 3 of the drawings. The aperture 8 in the spring r enables the beveled latch head 2' to pass therethrough, and to have holding engagement therewith, in substantially the same manner that the latch-head i passes through the aperture p in the frame member a, as illustrated in Fig. 8 of the drawings. In this construction, the alined apertures in the frame members at and Z) are of substantially the same shape and size, but the aperture in the spring 9'' is not in alinement with the apertures in the frame sections a and b.

In Figs. 7 and 8 of the drawings, the apertures in the frame sections at and b are in alinement, but the flange m nearest the latchhead 2' is not cut away, as illustrated in Figs. 3 and 5 of the drawings, and a fiat spring t is secured within the channel of the frame member a, the lower edge of which is designed to be engaged by the beveled portion of the latch-head 2', when the frame sections a and b are brought together, in order to have locking engagement therewith.

To permit of the upward movement of the latch stud, Fig. 7 of the drawings, I elongate the aperture in the frame member 5 near the latch-head z, and above the stud, as clearly indicated. .1 have also shown the spring member 70, Fig. 4: of the drawings, at its chambered portion, with a pair of integrally-formed depending lugs, the inner surfaces of which are adapted to engage with the latch stud 6. It is of course to be understood that the lugs may be dispensed with on the spring member 70 and similar lugs provided on the spring member j, by means of which the spring members are properly positioned and operatively held in the receivin pocket of the frame section b.

The modified form of spring a illustrated in Fig. 9 of the drawings, consists of but one member, the central or chambered portion of which is provided with a pair of integrally formed depending lugs w, the inner surfaces of which engage with the latch stud e, and

by means of which the spring u is positioned and operatively held in the receiving pocket of the frame section b.

The fastener just described, serves for additionally holding the frame members a and b in locked position, and is independently operated from the fastener or catch 0.

The invention is not limited to the exact embodiment shown, but may be modified in various Ways in the scope of the following claims.

I claim:

1. In combination with a bag frame, a latch stud mounted to turn in one member of said frame, and provided with a latchhead adapted to engage the other member of the said frame, said latch stud being further provided With means in engagement with the frame member in which it is mountv ed, for permitting upward movement of said ed to engage with the otherframe member to have locking engagement therewith, said latch stud being further provided with a cut-away portion, said cut-away portion being 1n engagement with the frame member in which it is mounted, for permitting up-- one of said frame members, comprising a latch stud provided with a latch-head adapted to engage the other frame member to have locking engagement therewith, the first-named frame member being provided with means for permitting upward movement of said latch stud, and a spring provided with positioning means for controlling the movement of said latch stud.
