IN VEN Tof-1 'A J pyefff A TTORNEY.

Jah, 6, 1925.

A. J. DYGERT BINDER FOR MAGAZINES Filed May 19,1924l 2 2 in Figure 3.

Patented Jan. 6, 1925.



vented a new fand .useful'BinderforMagazines, of which the, following is a specification. l A

zines, directories,.and paper-boundbooks generah Q An obj ect of my invention is to provide an exceedingly, simpleV and efficient binder which canI readily be vapplied to any/magazine of suitable dimensions. A

A second Vobject islto so construct the device that once the magazine or book is put 'into place in the binder it is so securely held there that it must be intentionally released.

A third object is t0 so construct the device that the dropping of the binder will not cause same to cut into the edges of the book.

A fourth object is to provide means for ejecting the magazine or book from the binder when it is desired that this should be done.

I accomplish these results in the manner set forth in the following specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure 1 is a longitudinal section taken from behind one of the covers. Figure 2 is a longitudinal section taken alongl the line Figure 3 is an end elevation of Figure 1. Figure 4 is a plan of Figure 1.

Similar numbers of reference refer to the same parts throughout the several views.

Referring in detail tothe drawing, I have applied my device to the inside of the back 10 of a pair of covers 11. Bound to the back 10 is a frame 12, preferably of wood. Each end of the frame 12 is provided with a double slot adapted to receive the U-shaped standard 13 secured to the wooden frame 12 by means of the rivet or pin 14. On the inner side of the portions of the standards 13 which project above the frame 12 I have formed the flanges 15 which serve as end stops for the pages 16 of the book being bound. I have also indicated the usual staples 17A by means of which the pages of the book are held together. Between the sides of each standard 13 is pivotally mounted on arm 17 on the pin 18. Each arm 17 is vThis invention relates moreV particularly. -to removable covers or binders for maga..

book, the edge 23 also engages thenotchf 19.

latchingedge 23 from the n otchrlQwhich -is done by pullingthe latch end of the s]g 1 ii1tlqV 21 outwardly.'

In order to the arm 17 from between the pages of the book after it is released by the withdrawal of the latching edge 23, I have provided the Hat springs 24 whose forked ends 25 pass under the flanges 15 of the standards 13, and are held in place by the tack 26 which is driven through the spring 24 into the member 12.

It is evident that as soon as the arm 17 is released that the spring 24 will push the book away from the back of the binder causing the arm 17 to assume the position shown in Figure 1, leaving same ready for the introduction of the next book or magazine.

The operation of the binder is as follows:

annate the' Withdrawal of iVhen desiring to place one of these binders c on a magazine the binder is opened up and placed on a. fiat surface with the arms 17 in the position shown in Figure 1. The magazine is then opened near its middle point and placed between the anges 15.4

cations as fall fairly within the appended claims.

I claim:

1. In a binder, the combination of a binder back; a standard at one end of said back;

an arm pivoted to said standard, and a latch mounted on the same end of said back adapted to hold said arm parallel, thereto; said latch consisting of a spring arranged to occupy registering notches in said arm and standard, when said arm is parallel to said back.

2. In a book binder, the combination of a rigid back member with a notched standard formed on the end thereof; a notched arm pivoted on said standard; aspring on said back, adapted to urge a book outwardly; and a spring latch adjacent to said standard adapted to engage the notches in said arm and standard, and hold said arms parallel to said back.

3. Al book binder having, in combination, a pair of covers; a back hinged between said covers; a frame mounted on said back; a standard mounted at each end of said frame; an arm pivotally mounted on each of said standards and latch means adjacent to the pivot of each arm, for holding said arms inwardly parallel to said back Without having said arms overlap and to permit same to be released from the outside of said book.

4. A book binder having, in combination, a pair of covers; a back hinged between said covers; a frame mounted on said back; a standard at each end of frame; an arm hinged on each standard; the ends of said arms not overlapping when parallel to said back and a short distance therefrom; said arms and standards having notches formed therein, which register when said arms are parallel with said back and a spring latch adjacent to each standard adapted to fall 'into said notches and to hold said arms rigid.

5. In a binder, the combination of a frame; a U-shaped standard mounted on the end of said frame, said standard having an arm pivoted between its open ends and having stop Hangers formed on the inner edges of its open ends, said standard having notches formed therein; a similar notch formed in said pivoted arm; a spring latch on said frame arranged to occupy the notches' in said standard and arm at the same time; and a spring under said arm normally urging the binder contents outwardly.
