LOUIS G. KURTZEBORN,
HOLDER FOR Application filed .Tune 3,
T all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, LOUIS G. Kuirrzn BORN, a citizen of the United States of America, and a resident of the city of St.
- Louis, and State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Holder for Check Books, of which the following is a. specification.
The primary object of this invention is to provide an improved clamping holder-to be usedin connection with check books and the like.
Another object of the invention is to provide an improved holder which is comprised of a pair of clamping members which are adapted to be engaged to different portions of a check book for holding a portion of the stub part of the book in open position from the remaining portion of the book.
Other and further objects will appear in the specification and be specifically pointed out in the appended claims, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, exemplifying the invention, and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view showing a check book with this improved holder applied thereto.
Figure 2 is an enlarged rear view of this improved holder.
Figure 3 is an enlarged vertical section taken through Fig. 2 on the line III-III thereof.
Referring by numerals to the accompanying drawings 1 designates a tying member which is preferably made from a relatively flat piece of steel, and pivotally secured at 2 to each end of said member is a respective clamping member 3.
Each of the clamping members 3 is provided with a pair of clamping jaws 4: tha are extended from the vertical back 5, through which each of the pivots 2 of the tying member 1 are located, and extending rearwardly from each curled lip 6 from each clamping jaw 4 is a prying handle 7.
In the operation of a device of this improved character, when it is desired to post the returned cancelled checks of a bank check book, one of the clamping members 3 is engaged on the body 8 of the check book, whereas the other clamping member is secured to the stub part 9 of the check book as shown in Fig. 1, so that the bookkeeper can mark off and make entries.
OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI.
1922. Serial No. 565,607.
In the position of engagement oi an improved holder of this character described, it is to be noted that the tying member 1 on account of its pivotal connection with the respective clamping members 3, will serve as a holding arm for the clamping member, further designated as A, so that said clamping member A will be held from being swung downwardly towards the other clamping member, further designated as B, by the force of the resiliency contained in the stub part 9 of the check book.
This improved holder is not only applicable to check books for the posting thereof, but can be used in connection with lodgers, journais and the like, in'which portions of the books are to be held separated by this improved holding device.
(in account of the tying member 1, which secures the clamping members 3 being resilient, a flexibility is given to this improved holder which enhances the Inanipu lating of the holder when securing it.
\Vhat I claim is:-
1. A. holder for supporting portions of a bank check book separated from one another, comprising a pair of clamping members spaced apart from one another each having a vertically disposed back port-ion, and a resilient member pivotally secured to the back portion of each of said clamping members for holding them in their spaced apart relation.
2. A holder for supporting portions of a bank check book separated from one an other, comprising a pair of clamping members spaced apart vfrom one another, and disposed in the same clamping direction, and a relatively flat and resilient tyinfg member pivotally secured at each end to each of said clamping members.
A holder for supporting portions of a bank check book separated from one another comprising a pair of clamping members spaced apart from one another and disposed in the same clamping direction, each having a vertically disposed back portion and a longitudinally extending tying member secured to the back portion of said clamping members for holding them in their spaced apart relation.
