Application" mea october 7,1922.L serieu No. 593,157.
To aZZ whom z'z concern.'
Be it known that I, THOMAS J. RUDESILL, a citizen of the United States, residingat Madison, in the county of Daneand State of lVisconsin, have invented-certain new and the rod upon which it is mounted.
I attain these objects by the mechanism shown in the accompanying drawing in which- 'y Fig. 1, is a view of the top edge;
Fig. 2, is a front elevation;
Fig. 3, is a side-elevation.
Similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the several views. L
The back 1 is formed from a sheet of 16 gauge aluminum with the lower corners rounded and a portion of the sheet removed from the upper edge at the center and outer-v corners, so that the remaining metal lmay be turned around a fulcrum pin 2 forming knuckles 3. A clip is provided adaptedto be mounted on the fulcrum pinl between the knuckles yand held in contact with the back by means of a torsion spring 5 which is disposed around the pin 2 with the'ends thereof extending a"distance. beyond-the same. One end 6 is seatedv ina groove 7 on the under side of the rear member 8' of `the clip and the other end 9 rests under 4.
preferably of aluminum, except a spring' the two, regardless' of the top edge ofthe back. The clip is.,y formed ofa top'member 4: of vsheet kmetal bent downward acrossV the front `edge 1(1)k thence extends :backward lal distance par`- l allel to the back 1 thence downward ap proximately `at right` 'angles `to a 'point slightlybeyond the back thence backward in alignment with the back andgprovided with ,a hole- 11. 'Ears 12 depend 'from the plate and are drilled, formingbearings by whlchvthe clip is mounted on the pin.
Buttons 13 are secured under thetwo front corners of the plate 4 by screws 14. It is obvious that bythe novel construction andgmountingof my clipV lI attain an object heretofore overlooked in the designing of chart or paper holders, as it can be seen v4byreference to` mg,` 3, that by susl i f pending theholder fromI the vhole 11,over `Aa pin .15, the weight of the holder and contents will force the buttons 13 towards the back vl andjsecurely grip papers between l any assistance from the spring 45. v
In a charttholden al back and knuckles f formed from 'sheet aluminum, 'a pin disposed-through the knuckles, a torsion spring mounted on'the pin between the knuckles, 70'
one end of the vspring 'resting against thev back, and the other disposedin a groove on the under side V'of a clip, in combination with al clip so mounted on .the pin that the weight of the holder when'suspended from a hook in the wall, will force the front-edge of the clip towards the back of the holder, as described and explained. y
In testimony whereof I aix my Signature in the presence of twosubscribing witnesses.
