With the fastener member 19 onthe pull-strap 16 secured to the companion fastener member Q0 on the easing A, the insert 15 and cards 14 are held by the/strap in the casing. After freeing the astener- 1ne1nher19 from ,the fastener memhervQO und pulling upon the strap 1G, the enrrl carrier is projected from the cnsing, the Cards; 14 Supported inthe stirrup 21 et the juntion et in'sert 15 :1nd pull-strap 1GA being lifted into partially nnsheathed position wherein they are readily accessible 'to the user.-
