I L. E. SAD-LER COMPACT HOLDER Filed Feb. 11. 1927 Patented Oct. 4, 1927.
UNITED STATES LOUIS SADLER, OF ATTLEBORO, MASSAC HUSETTS, Assrerion are THE F. n. SADLER COMPANY, OF ATTLEBORO, MASSACHUSETTS.
Application filed February 11, 1927.
This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in compact holders, and pertains more particularly to a holder for use with the top plate disclosed in my application for patent filed February 7, 1927, Serial Number 166,356, although it is applicable to devices of any and all types.
The primary object of the invention is to provide a simplified form of holder wherein the compact is held by means of a rim or ring which can be easily and quickly removed and replaced for the purpose of inserting a new compact.
The invention further aims to provide a holder of this type which dispenses with the use of solder and wherein an integral construction is employed devoid of extraneous or separate parts.
In the drawings Fig. 1 is a top plan view of the invention applied to a plate;
Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view; and
Fig. 3 is a section on line 33 of Fig. 1.
In proceeding in accordance with the present invention, a plate or other member 1 is employed which is formed with a depressed part received. lVhile I pacts as applied to the plate, understood that one or mpre pacts may be employed.
Each compact receiving depression has a rim or ring l prefenbly of circular form, although other shapes may be employed as desired. The plate is further formed with a pair of openings posed and a pair of substantially Z-shaped lingers 7 and 8, the finger 7 engaging in the opening 5 while the finger 8 engages in the opening 6. It will be seen that the fingers 7 and 8 are formed integral with the rim or ring and may be die-struck in a single operation with the latter. It will also be noted that the opening 6 is of greater length than the opening 5 and that the free end 9 of the finger 8 is disposed closer to the outer end of the opening 6 than is the free end 10 of the finger 7 with respect to the outer end of the opening 5, the object of which is to enable the finger 7 to serve as a hinge or pivotal connection with the plate while the finger 9 acts as a latch. In this regard, it will be noted that, since the rim or ring is formed of spring or resilient material, the end 9 of the finger 8 can be easily and quickhave illustrated two comstill it will be than two com- 2 in which the compact 3 is p 5 and 6 diametricallyop- Serial No. 167,428.
ly disengaged from the plate by inserting a knife or other sharp instrument beneath the top portion of the finger 8 so as to cause the end 9 to move about the angle 11 and thus readily snap out of and into the opening 6. If desired, the finger 9 may be given a slight inclination so as to facilitate its movement into and out of the opening 6.
From the foregoing it will be seen that after placin the compact in the depression 2, it is mere y necessary to insert the finger 7 in opening 5 and then swing the rim or ring about finger 7 as a pivot and force the free end 9 of the finger 8 through the opening 6.
It will be noted further, that since the free ends 9 and 10 of the fingers extend beneath the plate 1, they not only clamp the rim or ring to the plate, but they are also protected by the plate so that the free ends of the fingers are concealed and hence not subject to accidental disengagement.
What I claim as new and desire to secure by LettersPatent is 1. In a compact holder, a plate having a compact receiving depression and having a air of diametrically opposed openings located beyond the depression, and a rim engageable with the compact and having a pair of outwardly extending Z-shaped fingers engaged through'the openings and with the under face of the plate, one of the fingers being formed of a length so as to enable same to be snapped into and out of its openmg. v
2. In a compact holder, a plate having a compact receiving depression and having a pair of diametrically opposed openings located beyond the depression, and a rim engageable with the compact and having a pair of fingers extending through the open ings and engaged with the under face of the plate, one of the fingers being capable of being snapped into and out of its opening.
3. In a compact holder, a member having compact receiving means and having a plurality of perforations, a compact engaging rim, means carried by the rim and engage through one of the perforations to hingedly connect the rim to the member and a resilient latch carried by the rim and formed to snap into and out of the 4. In a compact holder, a member having compact receiving means and having a plurality of perforations, a compact engaging other perforation.
element, and a, pair of means carried by the element, each engaging through respective perforations, one of the means forming a hinge and the other a spring latch for the 5 element.
5. In combination with a compact holding member having opposed openings,, a rim,
and. integral means on the rim engaging tllrowglm the respective openings to hinge and latch the rim to the member. 10
In testimony whereof I have hereunto signed. my name to this specification.
