DISPLAY CARD FOR TOOLS.
Application filed Mare h 14, 1927. SeriaI NO. 175,208.
driver adapted to be held by the card. Fig.
' 3 is a perspective View of-a modification of the invention. I
The screw driver or other small tool '1 has an elongated fluted handle 2, and, near the juncture of the tool-shank and handle, .it is provided with a shoulder 3 disk-like in form.
In the cardboard 5 is formed a series of w slots 6 each fitted to receive the disk-shoulder 3 edgewise; and a short distance from these slots is a flap 7 united with the cardboard at 9.;and having therein as many slots 10 as there are slots 6; as shown in Fig. 1.
ot the card, the handles 2 are introduced beneath its edge and into and through the slots 10 for a short distance, and until the shoulders 8 can be inserted in the slots 6; where in'they will be retained by the resilience of the flap7, the pressure being maintained by the edge 11 of each slot 10 upon the handle 2.
In removing a tool, all that is needed to be done is to pull up on the blade thereof until its shoulder 3 is free of the slot 6, andthen to Withdraw the handle 2 from the slot 10.
'Without the shoulder 3 the tool would not stay in place, but would slide out from the The flap 7 being sprung up from the face slot 10 as soon as the card 1 is held in avertical position.
Another and a most important function or the shoulder 3 is to serve as a rest for the fingers clasped about the handle2 and trying to turn thescrew driver; the shoulder keeping the fingers from working downward as they revolve the tool, asotherwise they are, sure to do.
In the modification of the invention illus trated in Fig. 3, the tool being formed with a disk head 12 in a well known Way, butthe slots 13in the upper portion of the card 14 1- are adapted to receive these heads, while the slotted flap 7 through whose slots 10 the tools pass, yieldingly press the tools back againstthe card and their heads in the slots 13. v a v I prefer to have the slots 10 in the flap 7 sufliciently narrow to necessitatesome force in pressing the tools into them, thereby rendering the acciden'tallo-ss of the tools from the card mounting much more difiicult.
What I claim as my invention is:
a slot, and having asecondslot in line with the first-named slot but disposed trans'versely thereto, whereby a small tool having a slender handle and a. disk-like shoulder, can have its handleinserted through the firstnained slot and its shoulder inserted in the second-named slot, the pressure of the flap on'the handle retaining the shoulder in place in its slot. i
In testimony that I claim the foregoing invention, I have hereunto'setmyv hand this 12th day of March, 1927.
A card having a flap therein formed with GEORGE A. MOORE.
