UNITED- STATES CLYDE Z6. ROBINSON, OF MIAMI, OKLAHOMA.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 1, 1921.
Application filed June 16, 1920. Serial No. 389,473.
To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, CLYDE F. RosrNsoN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Miami, in the county of Ottawa and State of Oklahoma, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Article-Holders, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawlngs.
This invention relates to article holders and particularly to a holder for holding implements such as ice picks.
An object of the invention is to provide a device of this character capable of being attached to an ice chest or like support for holding one or more ice picks within convenient reach of the user.
Another object is to provide a device of this character which in addition to providing pockets for the reception of ice picks also provides a pocket for bills or ice coupon books.
Another object of the invention is to provide a device oi this character formed itrom a blank sheet oi. material having its opposed edges rolled upon said sheet to provide pockets, said rolled portions holding the sheet in spaced relation to a support to pro vide a pocket between the first mentioned pockets.
A still further object of the invention is to provide a device of this character having its opposed marginal edges rolled upon the sheet in conical formation so as provide pockets which correspond to the shape of an ice pick, and which also permits one edge of the sheet to engage a support to provice a bottom for a third pocket large enough to receive a coupon book or like article.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the improved construction and arrangement of parts to be here inater more particularly described, fully; claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of an article holder constructed in accordance with an embodiment of the invention and applied to a support,
Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view,
Fig. 3 is a rear elevation,
Fig. 4 is a top plan view,
Fig. 5 is a plan view of the blank from which. the article holder is formed, and
Fig. 6 is a front elevation of the holder showing the manner of attaching advertising matter thereto.
Referring to the drawings, A designates a support, which may be a wall, side of an ice chest or the like. In order to support an ice pick or like article within convenient reach or: the user, I provide a novel holder consisting of a blank sheet of material 5 including side edges 6 and 7 and ends 8 and 9. The side edges 6 and 7 are canted from the end 8 to the end 9.
To provide pockets for the reception of an ice pick, pencil or like implement, the marginal edges of the sides (3 and 7 are rolled back upon the sheet 5 toward each other upon the same side oi the sheet. As
the portion of the marginal edges adjacent the end 8 is larger than the portion adjacent the end 9 the rolled portions are caused to assume a conical form the entire length of the sides. The conical form is furtherassistcd in view of the fact that the outer wall portions 10 of the pockets are disposed in right'angular relation to the ends 8 and 9 so that the device is substantially rectangular in form after the pockets have been provided. The end portions '11 of the pockets adjacent the end 8 provide openings or months for the pockets while the other portion or apexes 12 of the conical pockets terminate closely adjacent the end 9. In view or" this, whenthe holder is ap plied to a support the edge of the end 9 will be positioned in engagement with the support to prevent escape of articles placed in the holder and also to eliminate the use of a separate piece of metal for a bottom. The conical pockets hold the sheet in tapering spaced relation to the support. In this way, the sheet in view of the conical pockets assumes a tapering form to provide a pocket between the conical pockets. Openings 13 are provided in the sheet closely adjacent the conical pockets, fastening means is being passed through the openings. As the openings are positioned closely adjacent the inner walls of the pockets, they do not interfere with the insertion of articles either in the conical pockets or the large pocket between the same.
An important feature of this device is that the support provides one wall for the inter mediate or large pocket and in view of the conical pockets, it is not necessary to provide a bottom as the end 9 of the sheet 1s held in engagement with the support While the end 8 is disposed in spaced parallel ,relation to the support to provide an opening for the pocket. lce coupon books, bills, or like articles may be placed in the large inter: i mediate pocket while the conicalpockets are constructed to receive ice picks or like implements. The outer surface of the sheet remote from theconical pockets may be pro- 'vided With advertising matter, said surface providing a large area tor advertising matter as it is substantially rectangularand there are no projections or indentations. As
shown in Fig. 6, a sheet of advertising matter may be provlded with eyelets 15 and secured to the holder by meansof fastening "means, or the matter may be printed on the 20 holder,
From the fore oin 1t Wlll be readil seen p b 9 that this lnventlon provides a novel 1nve n tion caoable of bein a 3 lied to an desired 7 l a:
support to hold various articles and as its construction is simple, its value as an ad vertising article cannot be estimated.
What is claimed is:--
l. A holder of the character described comprising a blanlr sheet of material having its side portions convergent from one end to the other of the sheet, said side portions being rolledback upon the sheet to provide conlcal pockets, the outer walls of sa d pockets being disposed in rlght angular relation to the ends of the sheet, the apex of eachconical pocket terminating closely ad- Jacent one end of the sheet, said sheet hav:
ing openings closely adjacent the inner walls opposed marginal edges coiled upon said sheet in conical formation to pro *ide pockets, said conical pockets holding the intermediate and one end portion of the sheet in spaced relation to the receptacle, and means for securing said sheet to the receptacle whereby, a pocket is formed between said conical pockets through the cooperai101 of the receptacle.
The combination with an ice receptacle, or" anice implement holder consistingof a blank sheet of material. having two oi its opposed inarginaledges coiled back upon. said sheet toward each other in; conical formation to provide pocketa'said sheet hav- 'ing an opening disposed closely adjacent each conical pocket for the reception fastening means, said conical pockets holding the sheet in an inclined position with respect to the receptacle, and fastening means disposed in said openings and securing said sheet to the receptacle, whereby articles may be placed in the pocket formed between the conical pockets without engaging said .iastening means.
