Application filed September 25, 1917. Serial No. tenido.
To all whom z't may concern: l Be it known that l, AUGUSTINE Cnossen, a citizen of the United States, residing at Mounds, in the county of Pulaski and State of lllinois, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Pen' and Pencil Holders, of which the following is a specication. v
This invention relates to devices or supporting small articles such as fountain and other pens, pencils and the like and adapted to he connected to a belt or like `support and readily attached and detached or moved to any point upon the belt.
With these and other objects in view, 'the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, as hereinafter shown and described and then specically pointed out in the claim; and in the drawings illustrative oi the preferred embodiment oi the in- Figure l is a perspective view ol the iinproved device disconnected 'from any support;
l Fig. 2 is a perspective view on a reduced scale of a conventional belt with the device applied; A
Fig. 8 is a sectional detail illustrating the manner of connecting the holding strap to the sheath.,V
Corresponding and like parte are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views or the drawings hy the saine reference characters.
rEhe improved device includes a sheath or yholder and may he oi any suitable form and employed for holding fountain and other pens, pencils and the like, out it is not desired to limit the invention to any specic iorrn. of the body of the holder or sheath,
The body of the holder is represented conventionally at l0 and includes an upwardly directed flap portion lf., The holder ern.- ployed ier illustrating the application ot the invention comprises a hach portion or a plurality of thicknesses oi material, such as leather, and one or more pockets or receptacles attached to the hach as shown, Formed through the Hap ll is a transverse slot 12 located some distance nelow the upper end of the dep and ada ted to receive a supporting strap which is filded near one end es shown at 13, and passed by the folded portlon through the slot l2. By this means the strap comprises two portions, a relatively short portion il `and a longer portion l5. The shorter portion ifiis riveted or otherwise secured to the dep 1l above the slot l2 hy a rivet or like device lo. By this means the strap is firmly connected tothe dep ll of the sheathA or holder leaving a relatively large part of the portion l of the strap extending above the upper end oit t Ae dep. The terminals of the portions lei-l5 or" the strap are designed to he coupled together, for instance by a glove fastener indicated at l7-l8. 'lhe longer portion l5 of the strap is designed to he folded over a heit, represented at 19, and when the snap devices 17-18 are closed the sheath or holder will he drrnly coupled to the belt while at the same l time readily slidalole thereon so that the wearer can quickly and easily adjust the position of the holder or sheath upon the heit The strap will he oi a length preferably to closely engage the loelt with the upper end of the nap relatively close to the lower edge of the heit, as shown in Fig. S, while the folded over part ci the portion 'l5 ci the heit will closely engage the upper edge or the belt, By this means 'the sheath or holder is held from vertical rnovernent relatively to the heit, while at the saine time iree to he moved longitudinally thereof when 'requiredl The improved device is simple in construction, can he inexpensively manufactured and applied without material structural change to sheaths orholders orn various terms and constructed ol various materials.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is:
A device or the class described comprising a body adapted to support articles and having a slot spaced from one end, a strap passing through the slot and folded near one end .against the opposite laces or the hody and with portions oi unequal length extending in advance of the body and coetl acting with the adjacent end of the body form a, seat adapted to receive the lower,
part of a belt a astenin device opemting through the folded portions of the strap emil means for detachably coupling the longer portlon to the shorter portion of the strap and adapted to inclose the uppeiI portion of the belt.
In testimony whereof I ax my signature. 'AUGUSTIN'E CROSSN. [L s.]
