VJRIST-A'ITAOHED ARTICLE CARRIER.
Application filed August 26, 1924.
This invention relates to the class of article carriers and pertainsparticularly to the class of wrist attached article carriers.
The prim ry obiect of this invention is the provision, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, of an llllPl'()"i"6(l and simplified wrist attached memorandum pad carrier designed to maintain: a writing pad in a case on the wearer's wrist in such a manner that the same may be quickly and easily accessible for use. I
A further object of the invention is the provision, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, of a memorandum pad holder designed to be attached to the wrist, entirely closed when not in use, to protect the pad and quickly and easily swung open to eX- pose the pad to view ready for use.
A further and final object of this invention is the provision, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, of a memorandum pad holder designed to be attached to wrist, which is light in construction, neat and attractive in design, easily and quickly applied and removed, and inexpensive to manufacture.
The invention will be best understood from a consideration of the following detail description taken in connection with the ac companying drawing forming a part of this specification, with the understanding that the invention is not confined to any strict conformity with the showing of the drawings, but may be changed and modified so long as such changes and modifications mark no material departure from the salient features of the invention as expressed in the appended claims.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective View of the device embodying this invention shown as applied and ready for use.
Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of he device, when closed.
Figure 3 is a transverse section taken upon the line 33 of Figure 2.
Figure 4 is a detail of one end of a pad holder showing the clip means by which the pad is retained in position.
Referring now to the drawings in detail wherein like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the device embodying this invention comprises a tray 1 and a cover 2. The tray and cover are of substantial width and rela tively shallow as shown, and if so desired,

the other end edge is extended inwardly to provide the free spring tongue 1- which extends across the tray from one side wall to the other as shown in Figure 1. This spring tongue 1 has a rib 5 pressed therein along the free edge thereof, which rib, as shown in Figure 2, extends into the tray.
The cover 2 is of substantially the same depth as the tray 1, and is of slightly greater width than the tray so that it can fit over the open top thereof to close the same. As shown in Figure 1, the cover 2 has one end wall removed and the edge of this end of the top is formed to provide hinge knuckles 6 which engage between the knuckles 3 and are secured together by means of the usual pivot pin.
The top or back of the cover 2 has secured thereacross intermediate the ends thereof the substantially oval split wrist band 7, a portion of the band upon one side being straight where it is attached in any desired manner to the cover 2, as indicated at 8, and this straight portion merges at each end into the semi-circular side 9, each of which ter1ninates in the free end 10. This wrist band 7 may be made of metal covered or plain, celluloid, hard rubber, or any other appropriate resilient material which is light and appropriate for such use.
When a pad 11 is placed in the tray 1, one end of the pad is slipped under the spring tongue 1, as shown in Figure 2, which tongue serves to securely hold the pad in position in the tray and prevent the same from falling therefrom.
It will be noted that when the wrist band 7 is secured about a wrist 12. the cover 2 is in inverted position and remains stationary, whereas the tray 1 is swung and enters the cover when closed, to be retained in inverted position upon the back of a wrist. When the tray 1 is swung open from the cover 2 it is brought down and rests upon the back of the hand of the wearer as shown in Figure 1, so that it is retained steady for writin From the foregoing description it may be seen that a very useful and novel device is produced by means of which the memorandum pad may be conveniently carried and ready for use at all times.
Having thus described my invention What I claim is:
1. In a pad holding device of the character set forth, a relatively shallow tray having a bottom and side and end walls, designed to receive a Writing pad, a resilient tongue projecting inwardly from the top edge of one end wall and having a down pressed rib formed therein adjacent and paralleling the free inner edge thereof for contact with the face of a pad positioned in the tray, and a cover adapted to overlie said tray to cover said pad.
2. In a pad holding device of the charac- 15 ter set forth, arelatively shallow tray having a bottom and side and end walls, designed to receive a writing pad, a resilient tongue extending transversely of the tray at one end thereof and having the top surface flush with the top edge of said side wall and further projecting freely inwardly -from one end wall, said tongue having a down pressed rib formed therein adjacent and paralleling the free inner edge thereof for contact with the face of a pad positioned in the tray, and
a cover member adapted to fit over the top of said tray to cover a pad located therein.
In testimony whereof, I affix my signature here'to.
