Application filed June 14, 1920. Serial No. 388,765.

To all 'whom t may concern:

Be it known that ALBERT E. F. MooNn, citizen of the United States, and a resident of and whose post-office address is `Wyo ming, county of Hamilton, State of Ohio, has invented an Improvement in Protective Covers for Articles, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to an improvement in covers, more especially temporary covers for products such as rolls of felt, paper, asbestos paper, prepared roofing and similar products where the edges of the products, formed at the junction of the ends of the roll and the sidesof the roll, are liable to become, and do, frequently become damaged. In transporting such materials from place to place the edges of the outer convolutions of the roll are. frequently damaged by the roll being dropped or coming in contact with other articles or with surrounding building structures, etc., with the result that the outer convolutions very often have to be cut away and go to waste.

My cover isadapted to fit rolls of different length and different circumference so as to protect the edges thereof from damage, while at the same time being so constructed that it may readily be applied to the prod.- uct or removed therefrom.

My covers are made preferably of a flexible material and are so constructed that they are very readily applied to the rolls and with equal readiness removed therefrom. While I'have shown andv described 1n invention as applied to a cover for ro led materials, of course," it -is equally applicable to articles of other form wherein it is desirable to protect the edges for any purposes whatever.

ln the drawings in which like characters relate to like parts; Figure is a view o my improved cover; Figure 2 is an enlarged cross section on the line 2, 2,`of Figure 1. Figure 3 is a cross section thru a roll showing my cover in position. .Figure 4 -is an end view of a roll having. my improved cover thereon.

The cover is preferably made of canvas, cloth, burlap or similar suitable flexible material, and is longer than the circumference of the roll to be protected, and wider.

than the roll is long. A is the body portion of the cover, B is a reinforcement of ma- -depending on t .posite free end than A but preferably and is stitched to the fabric A by suitable stitching C. The free edge of material B is folded upon itself at D the free edge portion E beyond the fold D being folded back on the fabric B and stitched. thereto by stitching F so as to form longitudinally of the cover a pocket in which is placedV a rope, twine or suitable'fastening material G. rllhis rope Gr is fixedly secured a little to one side of the longitudinal center of the cover at the point H, and near the end at the point J the ends pass outward thru the pocket and are free to be used for the purpose of fastening the cover in position. A similar reinforcement provided with a similar pocket, and containing in the pocket a similar rope for fastening the cover in place is attached along the opposite longitudinal side of the flexible material A. ln attaching these vreinforcements B to the flexible material A, I preferably have them lap over the material A a considerable disdrawn thru an one of the openings I,

e size of the roll to be covered. The rope, twine or other fastening G is also attached near the extreme end within the pocket. This arrangement is made so that when the cover. is in place on the roll if the roll is of less circumference f than the length of the cover, a workman 'in the cover draws the fastening means out thru one of the openings, which one depending on the size of the roll, and attaches that loop portion to the end G. If desired, the fastening J could -be dispensed with, and the workman thereby enabled to draw the fastening G out thru any one of the openings and have the free end of the fastener for attachment to the op- G. This would in that event leave a portion of the covering to the left of the illustration, as shown in Figure l, withapplying;r

out any attaching means and it would other fastening may bev ico . fastening means J, the Workin either have to be folded or otherwise fas-A tened in placeor be left free.

Vdrawn thru any of the opening-s, the free I end of the cover material is gathered and one end of the cove-r is automatically held in place without any additional fastening other than the mere tying of the free end of the fastener G to the looped portion passing thru the openings I. As shown in Figure 3, the covering is in place around one end of a roll and a looped portion of the fastener G is ready for tying with the free end o f the fastener G. lln Figure 4 an end View of a roll is shown, having the-j cover on, which illustrates how the athered automatically when the fastener is drawn thru one of the openings ll. f1

l have shown 1n the drawings and described my improvement as a cover for protecting the edges of rolls or other products, but I would have it. understood that it is equally applicable for articles which may be of v any form having edges desirable to protect. lf desired a cover could be made of a material sufficiently heavy to serve the purposes and dispense with the reinforcement, but in view of the fact that the wear and strain is along the edges of the product covered, and in view of the fact that the cover is primaril to protect the edges of a product,` it is c eaper to use a lighter material for the body portion of the cover and reinforce it with a heavier material along that portion that will come in contact with the edges of the product/when it is in place on the article vto be protected.

What ll claim 1s:

l. A protective cover for articles adapted I to cover the edges thereof, a pocket arranged along the edge of-'said cover, and a cord maaier member located within said pocket, adapted to hold the cover vin position, said member xedly held within said pocket at the ends only of said pocket.

2. A protective cover for articles, having a pocket along the edge thereof, a'cord member wholly located within said pocket between the ends of said cover, openings extending inward from the .edge of said cover, to permit access to said cord member; means located beyond a plurality of said openings fiXedly securing said cord member Within said pocket between said means so that cord member between said means is always of the same length as the distance between said means, all so arranged that when said cord member is looped through one of said openings it wilLgather the edge of said cover to reduce its normal length.

3. A protective cover for articles comprising a body member, a pocket arranged in said body member, a plurality of openings in said pocket, fastening means normally located wholly within said pocket, throughout the portion of length of said means corresponding to the length of the pocket, means ixedly securing said fastening means within said pocket, all so arranged that a portion of said fastening means may be looped through one of said openings to use in fastening the cover in place.

4. A protective cover for articles comprising a body member, a pocket arranged in said body member, a plurality of openings in said pocket, fastening means normally located wholly within said pocket, throughout the portion of length of said means corresponding to the length of the pocket, a plurality of means ixedly securing said fastening means within said pocket at points beyond the openings, all so arranged that a portion of said fastening means may be looped through one of ,said openings to use in fastening the cover in place.

ln testimony whereof ll have signed my name to this specification.
