WALTER. M. OLIVER, 0F PARSONS, KANSAS.
Application filed May 26, 1923. Serial No. 641,659.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, IVALTER M OLIVER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Parsons, in the county of Labette and State of Kansas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Package Tie, of which the following is a specification.
The present invention relates to a package tie and has for its principal object to provide means for holding the ends of a string which are disposed about a package so that these ends will be prevented from accidental displacement and when desired may be easily detached from the device so that the package may be opened.
Another important object of the invention is to provide a device of this nature having a simple and efficient structure, one which is reliable in operation inexpensive to manu facture, durable, attractive in appearance,
.and well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed.
lVith the above and numerous other 0bjects in view as will appear as the description progresses, the invention resides 111 061- tain novel features of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.
In the drawing 7 I Figure 1 is a perspective view of a pack age showing my device thereon,
Figure- 2 is a top plan thereof showing a portion of the package tie ren'ioved,
Figure 3 is a transverse section through the device, and
Figure 41 is a transverse section through a modified form of the device.
Referring to the drawing in detail it will be seen that 1 designates a package about which the cord 2 is disposed for holding the package together. Ordinarily the ends of the cord 2 would be tied together which is rather a diiiicult procedure if it is de sired to have the cord taut. My package tie.
includes a flat plate 3, a rivet i, and a dished or concavo-convex plate 5. The plates 3 and 5 are preferably in the form of disks and the plate 5 is smaller in diameter than the plate 3. The convex face of the plate 5 is disposed adjacent the plate 3. A rim flange 6 is formed on the plate 3 extending over the side thereof adjacent the plate 5. The rivet l passes centrally through the plates 3 and 5 and is preferably rigid to the plate 3 while the plate 5 may move thereon toward or away from the plate 3. As is shown in Figure 2 one end of the board 2 is permanently attached to the rivet 4: between the plates 3 and 5. The cord is then passed around the package as may be de sired .forholding the same secure and is then wrapped about the rivet and will be The modified form of the invention shown in Figure 4- includes the plate 3, the rivet 4 which is formed integral with he plate 3 and has rigidly disposed thereon the plate 5. The plate 3 of the modified form differs slightly from theplate 3 of the preferred form in that the-flange rim 6 is disposed on the side opposite the plate 5.,
I have, in the present instance, shown and described preferred embodiments of my iii-- vention which will give in practice satisfactory and reliable results, and it is to be understood that the same are susceptible of modification in, various particulars with out departing from the spirit or scope of the invention or sacrificing any oi. its ad vantages.
Having thus described my invention what I claim as new is 7 A package tie of the class described including a flat plate provided with a rim flange bent over on one face thereof, a rivet passing through the flat plate and rigidly engaged therewith, and a dished plate on the rivet'movable toward and away from WALTER M. OLIVER.
