1 PATENT OFFICE.

MASSACHUSETTS, ASSIGNOR T0 nrlumson MANUFACTURING COMPANY, 01E FRAMINGHAM, MASSACHUSETTS, A GORPORA- OF MASSACHUSETTS.

Application filed July 18, 1923. Serial N 652,294.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, FRANK H. THOMPSON, a citizen of the United States of America, and resident of Framingham, in the county of Middlesex and State of Massachusetts, have invented new and useful Improvements in Pinless-Grip Tickets, of which the fol-x lowing is a specification.

This invention relates to a pinless grip ticket or labeling device for removable application to fabric or similar flexible articles.

Prior to the present invention, marking devices or tickets such as used in connection with dry goods, hosiery and the like, to 'indicate'the quantity in the strip,the price or other data, have ordinarily been appliedto fabric or similar flexible articles eitherjectionable due to difliculty in both application and removal.

Non-metallic tickets have been proposed, but so far as- I am aware none has been satisfactory, principally because the become accidentally detached too easily. F

It is therefore the purposeof thepresent invention to providea ticket or marking device which is simple and economical to manufacture, easy to attach and detach, one

that'will securely engage the article to which Lmay come in contact,

it is applied, that will not damage the article to which it is applied or with which it and which will not harm the user.

Certain embodiments of the invention designed to, accomplish the foregoing. results are, illustrated in the accompanying draw- -ingsinwhich\'- "i 4 Fig. 1 is a front view of one form of ticket attached to a piece of m'aterialy;

Fig. 13 is a face view of a modification in use;

Fig. 14 Fig. 13; and j Fig. 15 shows the ticket of Figs. 13 and 14 detached and unfolded.

The invention as illustrated is shown applied to a suitable strip of fabric or material A which it is desired to mark. The several forms, while slightly differing in is a section on line ,1414 of' ig. 12 shows the ticket of Figs. 1Q and structural details or arrangement ofparts,

are all shown as comprising a body portion having some form of slot ig combination with a tongue member which serves .to defiect a portion of the material A" through the slot together with means on the body portion interlocking with the deflected ma terial and tongue to secure the material against the tongue and retain the device as an entirety in position. In addition, in some forms of the nvention the device is so arranged as to project little if any beyond the edge of the material to which it is ap plied, so that liability of accidental detachment is reduced to a minimum.

While it will be appreciated that the device in question may be formed from any 'bendablematerial, it is preferably constructed fromsuitable inexpensive 'non- -metallic material. In its preferred form it.

is stamped or cut from suitable cardboard or' similar material which will-readily receive the designations it is desired'to apply although celluloid and other sheet material may be substituted if desired.

The form of invention illustrated in Figs. 1, 2 and 3 comprises a body portion 15 and an integral hinged or foldable tab 16, the portions 15 and 16 being adapted to receive and embrace the material A therebetween as best illustrated in Fig. 2. The portion 15 is formed with the three-sided slot 17 providing a fabric receiving aperture as at 18 while the member 16 is formed with a reduced tongue 19. the length of the member 16 from hinge fold 20 to the end of tongue 19 being greater than the distance from hinge fold 20 to the transverse portion of slot 17.

In use the parts 15 and 16 are folded to engage opposite sides of the material and tongue 19. covered by a portion of the material. is forced through slot 17, as by flexion of member 16, to project upwardly through the slot as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. lVhen in this position, a portion of the material A is forced through the body portion to the side opposite from that on which the tongue 19 ordinarily lies. the material being under taut and being brought against the body portion 15 adjacent slot 17. This action causes the material to frict-ionally bind against the tongue and be securely locked against accidental detachment.

The form shown in Figs. 4. 5 and 6 is substantially the same as that just described with the exception that body portion 15 is formed with a triangular aperture- 21 in place of slot 17 and the terminal portion or tab 16 .is of substantial spear-head formation as indicated at 22, being adapted to be projected through the aperture 21 to interlock with the edges thereof as shown in Figs. 4 and 5.

In the form of invention shown in Figs. 7, 8 and 9, the body portion 23 is formed with longitudinal slots 24 and transverse slot 25 providing the tongue 26. Slots 24 preferably terminate in enlarged apertures- 27 adapted to receive" the edge of the material A which is inserted between tongue 26 and body portion 23, the tongue being then pressed to deflect it to the opposite slde of the body port-ion from that on' which the material A is disposed. When so defiected, locking tab'portion 28 is folded down to lie behind tongue 26 interengaging with the" material covering the tongue to fric- Y tionally secure the markingticket in'place I to Fig. .8.

: scribed with the exception that the slots 24 and apertures27 extend nearer the lower edge of body portion 23 so that the edge of the marking ticket projects but slightly beyond the edge of the material.

The form of invention illustrated in Figs. 13, 14 and 15 embodies the advantages of the several previously described embodiments ofthe invention in that it has the central fold as at 29, providing the body portion 30 to lie on one side of fabric 32 and a tongue 31 to lie on the opposite side of the fabric, the fabric preferably extending to the fold 29. formed with an opening 33 through which the terminal portion of tongue 31 with a portion of fabric deflected therearound is inserted. The opening 33 is preferably. formed by cutting a U-shaped'slot through the body. leaving a tongue 33. The body portion is preferably provided with a flap portion 34 which may be folded down to fit under the tongue 31. interlocking therewith to prevent withdrawal of the tongue and material and retaining the parts in place. It is to be understood that either the flap 34 may be used for locking the tongue in place or both the tab and the end wall of the slot. in either event the body portion having a member at the end of the slot in interlocking eng'agement with the tongue.
