f TEMPORARY BINDER.

Application led November 28, 1922, Serial The present invention relates to that class of temporary binders in which the back comprises two sections of sheet metal, which are hinged together, and the invention con- 6 sists in a special construction of these sections, the locking device and the attachments for the threaders.

Embodiments of the invention are shown in the accompanying drawings. Figures 1 and 2 are an inner side view and end view respectively of the back sections in closed position. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view taken on line 3*-3 of Fig. 1. Fic. 4 is a rear view of the upper part of the binder back. Fig. 5 is a front view of the same. Fig. 6 is a section on the line 6--6 of Fig. 5. Fig. 7 is a cross section on the line 7-7 of Fig. 5 on an enlarged scale.

Both back sections 1 and 2 are as stated manufactured of metal sheet andthe adjacent edges of the same are provided with sleeves 4 projecting between each other and surrounding a hinge pin 3 in ordinary man` ner.

In the adjacent longitudinal edges of the back sections there are cut a number of slits so as to form tongues, every other tongue of each section being curled to form a sleeve and the other tongues being either cut away or left unbent, thereby forming stops 25. These stops are, however, provided at their inner ends with shoulders 10 of substantially semi-circular cross section and frictionally engaging the sleeve of the opposite hinge plate 11. In closing the back the stops 25 of one back section `abut against the in-` ner surface of the other back section, thereby causing a mutual stability of the back' sections and forming simultaneously somewhat resilient lugs, which limit the closing movement and make an active resistance to a deformation of the binder back. The back can be manufactured of thin `steel-plate. Those edges 5 of the plate sections, which are formed by the tongues being removed are bent inwardly so as to closelyabut against the sleeves of the opposite plates.

The plate sections are provided with Vtransverse flanges 6 suitably formed by bending the end edgesof thel plate sections, whereby the rigidity of the plate sections is increased, and said flanges further consti-- tute protective members for the covers, when the latter are slid over ia supporting surface.

No. 603,820, ena in sweden December 29, 1921.

Moreover, the plate sections are provided with longitudinally extending flanges or side parts 16 from which the tongues 19 are stamped out, said tongues serving to attach the plate sections to the cover 17 and also to attach the plates 8, 9 to the side parts 16. Pins 7 arel iXed to the plates 8, 9. These tongues after having been stamped out, are at first bent inwardly and then threaded through holes in the covers and plates v8, 9 and finally the tongues are urther folded so as to lie against the covers j and the plates 8 and 9 respectively.

The plate 9 is provided with an integral projection 21 directed towards the other plate 8. The plate 8 is provided with an integral projection 2 2 directed towards said projection 21. When the binder is closed, both the said projections lie against or near each other, as shown in Fig. 2. To the inner side of the projection 22, the locking catch 11 is pivotally secured by means kof the pin 12. ,lV hen closing the covers the bent free end lot the locking catch passes into a recess of the outerbent end of the projection 21 and is caught b'y one edge of said recess in known manner. A latch lever 13 is connected by means of a wire 111 with the locking catch 11 and the connection between said parts 11 and 13 is such that when actuating the lever a drawing is exerted on the wire so as to disengage the catch. By this means a very thin wire may be employed in contradistinction to the known locking devices of this class, where the connecting part between kthe lever and the catch is'moved towards the latter upon opening the lock. 15 designates the spring, which tends to. bring the catch into lockingposition. i

. The stops 25 provide a certain resilient resistance to the very last portion ot the closing movement thereby causing the locking catch .to actively press upon the inside and the body ofthel Y whereby a depression is formed on the 1nvmeans of a pasteboard sheet Si,

Another more suitable arrangement to facilitate placing/labels or docket strips on the vbinder back, is shown in Figs. 4-7. In each of the plate sections, an opening" 33 lengthened in the vertical direction is cut,

the openingof one plate section having the samefform andpsize and being situated at vthe same height as .theopeningin the other The opening is closed by which is of greater length and breadth Vthan the opening and is stamped in such a way that an annular shoulder is formed between the edges pasteboard'sheet 34,

side of the sheet 34 as clearly shown inthe Figsand 7. The disk 34 is inserted from Vthe inside ofthe binder, the main part thereof then projecting into the opening and its edges abutting against the inner side of the edges of Vthe. opening. The pasteboa-rd sheet is held by means of tongues 36, cut'A from the plate sections, extending through holes in the edges ofthe pasteboard sheet and pressing against another sheet 35` of .metal or any other suitable material.

This sheet 35 is of the same or about the same length and breadth as the recess on f the inside of the .sheet 34 so that the plate atleast nearly exactly fits into this recess. Preferably the thickness of the plate 35 has such a size that when the plate Y is in the secured position, the inner surface thereof about coincides with the innersur face of the edges of the sheet 34.

The manner of placing the pasteboard sheets in position may be clearly understood from the foregoing and the following. The tongues 36 in kthe beginning project inwardly. The pasteboard sheet .is placed in position by threading the holes of the same on the tongues.

36 are bent to grasp' the plate 35. The paste- 4board sheet is suitably given such form when Y being stamped that its outer surface, when the sheet is in the secured position, ysubstantially coincides with the outer surface of the corresponding plate section.
