Application filed February 11, 1929. Serial No. .339, 062.
This invention relates to gummed rein forcing patches adapted to be adhesively united to articles of sheet material, such as l H 7 combined with a supportin gstand.
the leaves of a loose-leaf binder, shipping -tags, etc., each patch being applied to an,
article in position to surround a hole therein.
The invention relates particularly to patchescustomarily applied one at a time by hand, like a postage stamp. Heretofore such patches have been marketed in a loose 0011- ditionusuallyin a box or carton, and applied by separately handling each patch, which. is moistened, usually by the tongue, to render the gummed side adhesive.
The object of my invention is to enable 7 reinforcing patches to be quickly and conveniently applied one by one without being separately handled, andin such manner as tomake it more convenient for-the user to render the gummed coatings adhesive by moisture applied by mechanical means than by the unsanitaryuse of the tongue. I e
In attaining this object I assemble a multiplicity of gummed patcheson an elongated core in such manner as to forma dispensing dpackage composed of a core and a body of patchesmounted thereon, the package being tioned to adhere to the reinforced articlc,-
and the package is pressed endwise against the article, the body of patches being slidable on the core,'so that after an end patch has been detached, another takes its: place, there being no separate handling'o't any patch. I I Of the accompanying drawings forming a jpart'of thisspecification,' i 7 Figure 1 is aside View, showing a dispensing package embodying the invention,
Figure 2 is a perspective view of the core. Figure 3 is a view similar to- Figured, showing a presser movable onthe core and bearingon the body of patches.

Figures 6 and 7 are views similar to: Figure 4, showing a modification.
Figure 8 shows the" dispensing package Figure 9' is a side view of a leaf for use ,witha loose leaf binder, and a patch reinforcing theport-ion ofthe sheet containing one ofthe usual holes therein.
-The same reference characters indicate the same parts in allot the figures; I In the drawings, 12 designates a core which is preferably-a metal tube adapted to i enter the orifice 13. of an ordinary patch 14, said patch having on one side'a gum coating The length of the core is such that a multiplicity of patches may be strungon the core side by side to form a body which may 'fcontain several hundred patches of the thickness of those usually employed for re inforcing paper leaves, tags, etc. 7 The oorehas a receiving end, which is the upper end when the core is positioned as shown by Figure 1, and a delivering end provided with anenlargementadapted to so oppose endwise movement of the body .to--
ward the delivering end as to prevent accidental endwise movement of the body to- 7 Ward said end, and releasably hold the end patch flush with the" delivering end, said enlargement being adapted to permit the forcible detachment of the end patch from the body and core when said patch is caused to adhere to an article reinforced thereby, as j hereinafter described. Said enlargement is, in this instance, yielding and formed by cutting longitudinal slots in the tube, thereby forming tongues 16 which are bent outward, as shown by Figures 2 and 4;. Said tongues are resilient and adapted to bear yieldingly on the inner margin of theend patoh'consti- .tuting the inner end ofthe body, andthus non-positively and frictionally oppose removal of said patch 'from the core. The gummed sides of the patches face" toward the delivering end ofthe' core. The major portion of the core, extending from the deliverfrom the receiving end, l provide the latter with a positive stop 17, which is removable from the core to permit the stringing of the patches thereon to form the body, said stop being preferably a nut engaged with a threaded end portion of the core.
In operating the described package, it is held vertically, and the body of patches, is moved by pressure exerted on the end adjacent the receiving end of the core, until the opposite end'is flush with theoute'r ends of the core tongues 16, said tongues preventing the lowest patch from dropping off the'core, the latter at the same time bearing on the article 18, or on a bed supporting it.
The operator exerts endwise pressure on the body to move the same downward on the core and press'thelowest patch against the article 18, said patch being caused to adhere to the article by moistening the gum coating 15, either by applying water thereto,-or to the portion of the surface of the article the body is exhausted.-
. The core may be thin metal tubing, costing so little that it may be discarded when the body is exhausted, the package formed by the core and body constituting an article of merchandise, which may be. bought like a box or carton of loose patches.
\ It will be seen that the patches composing the body require no separate handling, and are separable from each other, so that they may be rapidly and conveniently applied.
The body may be moved on the core elther by pressure exerted directly on one end of the body,"as indicated by Figure 1, or by an annular presser 21, movable on the core and hearing on one end ofthe body, shown by Figure Figures 6 and 7 show a modified construction of the delivering end of the core; The resilient tongues formed by slotting the core, and here designated by 16a, are relatively thick at their outer ends, and gradually decrease in thickness so that the bore of the slotted coreportion formed bythe'tongues is tapered and smallest at the end of the core. A
tapered plug 23, conforming to thebore of the slotted core portion, is pressed outwardly by a spring2-1,andcaused to normally press the. tongues 16a outward and cause their outer si-des'to frictionally engage the lowest patches of the body, as indicated by Figure 6. The plug projects from the core sufficiently to be forced into the core by contact with the bed 25, supporting the article 18, wh-en'the package is moved from the position shown by Figure 6 to that shown by Figure. 7'. The movement of the plug thus caused permits the tongues 16a to spring inwardly, which is their natural tendency, thus causing their outer sides to release the lowest patches, as inclicated by Figure 7, so that the patch when caused to adhere to the article 18, is separated from the body when the package is lifted. The lifting of the package permits the projection of the plug 23 by the spring 2 1, so that the tongues immediately reengage the lowest patches and oppose downward movement thereof.
The spring 24c'may be supported by any suitable abutment fixed in the core, said abutment being formed, forexample, by tongues 26 integral. with the core'and pressed into the bore thereof. The outerend of the plug 23 serves as a locating device to properly locate an applied patch with relation to ahole 19, the plug being inserted in the hole when it'is pressed on the bed 25. v V
Figure 8 shows a supporting stand associated with the described package; Said holder includes a guide 27 supported by a standard 28 on a base 29, said guide being an arm having an orificein which the core 12 is'vertically movable. The bed 25 is supported above the base and adapted to' support the article 18in the path of the package, when the latter is moved downward. The base is provided with an article-locating projection 31, adapted to enter a hole 19 and locate the article 18 in position to receive a patch; The
stand maybe providedwith means for mois:
te'ning the upper side of the article 18, when the latter is held by the operator in the lower dotted line position shown by Figure: 8, said means including a: downwardly facing brush 32, supplied with water from a tank 33 by a wick 84: extending to the brush through a tube 35.
The package is yieldingly supported in a raised position a spring 36 interposed between the guide 27 and the nut or' stop 17, to permit the interposition'ofthe article 18 between the bed and the package, the spring permitting the packages tobc moved downward until the lowest patch is secured to the article 18, and then raising the package, as shown by Figure 8. The guide 27 may be pivoted at 38 to the standard 28, so that it maybe swung up-ward to facilitate the insertion of the core 12in the guide, and its re: moval there from. Y" a i 5 It will be seenthat in each of the described embodiments of the invention the delivering end of the core is provided with an enlargement releasably engaging the inner. margin 1 tachment of the end patch from'the body lll) and core when said patch is caused to adhere to an article reinforced thereby.
The resistance offered by the enlargement to the detachment of the patch adhering to the reinforced article, is so inconsiderable that there is no liability of the article being pulled away from the patch. I
