Application filed December 1 To all lwhom t may concern Be it known that I, CHARLES4 J. SAGE- BRECHT, a citizen of the United Statesy of merica, residingat Brooklyn, county of I ings, and Sta-tefof` Newv York, have in'- ven-ted certain neWfandusefulImpr'ovements l in Casings for Portable Electric Flash- Lights, of which the following 1s Aa full, clear, andexact description.
This" invention relates y to improvements in casngs for portableA electric ashlights, the object being to providel a casinghaving embedded inthe Wall 'thereof a conductor orconductors forthecompletion of'thecir- I cuit-for the-lamp and battery' supported by the casing, a suitable" 'circuit-closerbeing provided to close thecircu'it` betweenV said embedded: conductors,- the said' circuitcloser being preferably carried" by the easing.
To carry out my1 invention I provide a casingwhich is preferably molded around ar To .produce anj-'ei'cientfz and at the same" time anfinexpensivelmechanism, I employ conducting elements consisting ofa plurality. of tubes ofthinmetaLone-endiofeach tube4 beingithreaded to-receivea cap, the easing being moldedv aroi'ind'` said tubes, threaded l portion of` each tube,Y however `being uncovered, r'partlyso: The tubes reerred to vwill] beA slightly lseparated at ad-V 'acent-ends' `and a circuit-closerA Will beemployede to I close 1 the circuit between said' j Further features of* improvement vwill hereinafter appear;`
I Willnowproceed to tionv in xdetail; thenovell feature `of Whielr I Willpoint-.outinj 4the appended ,claims,V ref` erencebeing had to the 'accompanying 'drawing,v ,form-ing. part r'hereof, Wherein--v Figure'- 1'.' illustratesif-a l vertical sectional vieW= of a lflashlight l casingl constructedfin accordance" -With'f my; improvement, a battery and lamp beinggshown in elevation. Fig. 2. is a'jbottom plany view of ,the casing, the other partsbeingomitted.- FigsB-and 4 are perspectiveviews 'of the 'upperand lower tubular conductors,respectively.'
In the drawing, 1 indicates a casing of non-conducting material arranged to receive and hold a battery 2 `which supplies current for a .lamp 3 carried bya reflector 4 covered Specification of Letters Patent.

by a lens 5. Asisvusual, thelamp contact with theVY `Ca'rbonpole bof` thebattery 2, the circuit being'` closed` forfxthefglaiiip through" the conductors which 'are ','embedded in the casing. byl means of the ciroliti'clb' `rhereinafter described. The condu which are Aembedded in'vv the` casing 4con ,conductors 8 and 9 are spaced apart adjacent ends 10 'and 11, respectively; :as shown in Fig. A1. Y y f To provide for the securement volf the caps 12 and-13, the'out'ereml of ,each tubular conductor 8 and `9 isthreadedas at Maand` 15, respectively. The lower capv 13 electrically connects the zincpol'efof. the' battery and lower' tubular conductor'9-by .means ofthe spring'lll". The -uppe'r conductor `8 is electricallylcon'nected' to the" lamp 3 by' means of the reflector 4 `linto which the lamp is screwed.. The" reflectbr4 rests in contact with the lflange.` 1,4:a 'carried by ,the conductor member 8. Theflen'sjis heldin place by the' cap ,12'Which`egages`the threads on the conductor'S.'- i l j To connectv the conductors 8 and"9 with the` circuit closiiig` elements; consi'stikiigfof the' Slidab'le contact-WandjfiiedContact 16,

It will be. apparent that the conductors lwiu at au times be pwteaea'and will also furthermore, byxf employingv these tubular conductors anexcee'dngly strong casiig Will be formed, as the Said conductors .will act as reinforcements for the casing Wall, besides performing the function 'of elements .of an electrica-l Circuit. g VAfter the Casing has been .ormed, With theconductors 8 and. 9 embedded therein,.
