BINDER FOR LOOSE SHEETS OR THE LIKE Filed Dec. 7. 1928 INVENTOR.

Patented Feb. '24, 1931 UNITED .srAras PAUL SIPTROTT, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

BINDER FOBLOOSE SHEETS OR THE LIKE Application filed December 7, 1928. Serial No. 324,482.

The present invention relates to improvements in binders.

Keeping loose sheets, as for instance newspaper sheets, together and in order is gener- 5 ally annoying and rather diflicult especially on trains or subways or the like, where crowded conditions make itextremely difficult to handle such sheets. The sheets tend to slip pocket, on a chain or a key ring and hence.

20 be accessible whenever desired.

A further object is to provide means of such construction as will permit the suspen- 'sion of said temporarily bound sheets from a wall or other stationary support.

Still another object is to provide a temporary binder which is cheap and easy to manufacture.

With these and many other objects, readily apparent, in view my invention consists in a temporary binder, described and shown in 'the accompanying drawing, in which similar reference characters denote corresponding parts and in which,

Fig. 1 shows in elevation a newspaper, the interleaved sheets of which are held in place by my temporary binder.

Fig. 2 is a top plan view of Fig. 1. m Figs. 3, 4, 5 and 6 show various modifications of my binder.

Fig. 7 is an elevation of the device of Fig.

.6 seen in the direction of the arrow showing the method of applying this particular de- M vice to loose sheets, and

Figs. 8 and 9 show still other modified forms of my binder. Y

My binder is preferably made of resilient mat erial, such as phosphor-bronze or steel 50 wire, celluloid or the like and consists essenthe novel construction and arrangement of tially of a clamping portion and a suspension portion.

In the embodiment of my device shown in Fig. 3, the binder consists of a member of i any suitable material so shaped as to form a loop 10 and a bifurcated stem whose legs 11 and 12 run parallel and very close to one another, the leg 11 being slightlylonger than leg 12, and both legs being. provided with bent out portions 11' and 12' respectively at 60 their ends. The loop 10 has the double function to wit; one of producing a clamping action betweensaid two le s and two, of serv ing as means for suspending the binder from any convenient hook rack or other stationary su port.

' n the device of Fig. 4 the loop 10-is of triangular shape and the leg .12 is'indented, corrugated or serrated, as shown to increase the clamping effect and prevent accidental l plippir lg ofthe sheets held by said leg and In the modification of Fig. the device is somewhat in the shape of a hair pin and is shaped to form a loop and a bifurcated stem both legs 11 and 12 of which are corrugated, serrated or indented as shown and provided at their free ends with bent out portions 11* and 12. These legs too are adapted to bear towards each other.

In the modification of Figs. 6 and 7 my binder is formed with a'loop 13 and a bifurcated stem having two sets of legs 14 and 15, the legs of set 15 being spaced from each other and those of set 14 lying between the two outer legs 15 and crossing over in the manner shown. A greater clamping action is the result. As before outward bends 14 and 15' are provided to facilitate the insertion of the sheets to be bound.

In the modification of Fi 8, I show still another'form of binder whic is formed with a hook 18 and a bifurcated stem having legs 11 and 12 which run parallel and very close to one another, the leg 12 being provided with a bent away portion for the purpose hitherto mentioned. 7

In the modification of Fig. 9 which is like the modification of Fig. 3 with the exception that it is a double strength clip formed by 100 doubling each of the sections of the binder of tion of the shorter arm and said arms and Fig. 3 and which, if made of wire, may be suspending means being all arranged in a formed by taking a double length thereof, single plane. folding it in two and then bendin to the In testimony whereof I aflix my signature 5 shape of Fig. 3. This type of m ification PAUL SIPTROTT. 70

can readily be applied to any one of the other modifications shown in much the same way, as is apparent to any one skilled in the art.

In employing my devices, for instance on 1 newspapers, the pages 19 thereof are unfold 76 ed along their folds and a fastener slipped on at each end with the legs: of the bifurcated sections extending along the fold, and with the loop or hook projecting above the edge of said sheets. The uppermost and lowermost 80 sheets are engaged by said forks or legs and the other sheets are clamped therebetween and all are held firmly andneatly in place. By means of the hook or loop these tempora 20 ril bound sheets may be suspended from a 85 nail, rod, rack, or other convenient stationary support. When one has finished with the paper the binders may be removed and kept for further use.

I need not use these binders only for newspapers but for any other folded or interleaved sheets or the like.

It is obvious that many modifications of my devices may be made without departing from the spirit of mydnvention and I do not 95 wish to be limited to the details shown and described.

What I claim is: 1. A clip for temporarily binding newspaper sheets in interleaved relationship com- 100 prising a forked member of spring material bent to formtwo opposed arms and further bent over at the folded end to form a suspending hook said arms being adapted to 40 clamp said sheets together by extending 1 along the fold thereof, one of said arms being straight in its entiretyand the second of said arms being shorter than the first and also straight in its entirety except for its free end where it is bent away from said 110 first named arm, said arms being adapted to bear against each other for the full length of the straight portionof the shorter arm and said arms and suspending hook being all arranged in a single plane.

2. A clip for temporarily binding newspaper sheets in interleaved relationship comprising a forked member of spring material bent to form two opposed arms and further 120 bent at the folded end to form a suspending means, said arms being adapted to clamp said sheets together by extending along the fold thereof, one of said arms being straight in its entirety and the second of said arms a 1 5 I being shorter than the first and also straight in its entirety except for its free end where it is bent away from said first named arm, said arms being adapted to bear against each I other for the full length of the straight por
