Feb. 28, 1933. P. w. DAVIS ET AL PACKAGE HOLDER Filed June 26, 1931 gwoe'nl oit Patented Feb. 28, 1933 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE PAUL W. DAVIS AND JAMES M. BOOTH, OF KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI PACKAGE HOLDER Application filed June 26,
This invention relates to cases for holding commodities such as cigarettes and matches or cigarette paper and matches, and has for an object the provision of a case or the like, to which a belt may be applied for supporting it on the wearer.
It is a further object of this invention to reduce a case of the character indicated aving resilient package engaging parts sufiiciently rigid to prevent dislodgment of the package and yet sufficiently resilient to permit the application or removal of the packages with relation to the holder.
It is a still further object of the invention to produce a holder of the character indicated which will be simple in construction and comparatively inexpensive, and of a shape which will permit its formation from a single piece of material.
With the foregoing and other objects in view, the invention consists in the details of construction, and in the arrangement and combination of parts to be hereinafter more fully set forth and claimed.
In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing forming part of this application, wherein like characters denote corresponding parts in the several views, and in which- Figure 1 illustrates a view in perspective,
showing the invention adapted for use in carrying cigarette packages and matches;
Figure 2 illustrates a transverse sectional view thereof;
Figure 3 illustrates a perspective view showing the utilization of the device for bolding boxes of matches and packages of cigarette papers;
Figure 4 illustrates a transverse sectional view of the holder showing the match box and cigarette papers in elevation; and
Figure 5 illustrates a plan view thereof showing a belt in dotted lines.
In forming the holder illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2, a strip of metal is employed and it is preferably resilient. The metal is doubled on itself with one end longer than the other. The arallel portions 6 and 7 of the strip of meta are angularly dis osed with relation to horizontally dispose portions, as indi- 1931. Serial No. 547,118.
cated at 8. The shorter length of the'doubled portion extends upwardly from the horizontally disposed portion and it is identified by the numeral 9. This portion 9 is parallel with but spaced from the looped portion and serves with the said looped portion to form a seat for a package 10 such as cigarettes or the like.
The longer part of the doubled strip has a portion 11 extending approximately parallel ut in spaced relation to the shorter end 9 and they cooperate to retain the package 12 of matches in the space between them, It is shown that the longer portion is looped upon itself as at 13 and terminates in a laterally projecting flange 14. The looped portion of the longerend of the strip forms a keeper or guide for the reception of a belt 15 by which the holder is carried. by the user. In that form of the invention shown in Figs. 1 and 2, the material has straight sides'practically throughout its length and the articles held by it may be readily applied to or removed from it.
In that form of the invention shown in Figs. 3 and 4, the length of material is doubled on itself to form the inner jaw or wall 16 of the holder, but the said wall has convolutions or corrugations and the up er end of the wall is curved inwardly in or er that it will have a firm grip to frictionally retain the box 17 in place. That portion 18 of the holder which corresponds with the portion 9 of the holder shown in Figs. 1 and 2 does not engage the side of the box, except that the upper end of the portion 18 is curved inwardly to form a flange 19 whose edge bears against the side of the box to coact with the wall 16 for effectively retaining the box in place. The portions 20 and 21 of this form of the invention correspond substantially to like portions in Figs. 1 and 2 and are sha ed to form a 100 for the reception of a elt whereby the older is supported on the wearer of the belt.
1. In a package holder, a length of material doubled on itself, one end projecting beyond the other end, the said material at the looped end extending at an angle to an intermediate portion and the shorter end of said strip extending parallel with the looped portion and at an angle to the intermediate portion in spaced relation to-the looped portion 5 to 1 hold a packa the other end of said length of materi being shaped to occupy a position substantially parallel with the wall ormed by the shorter end and in spaced rela tion thereto and operative to coact therewith to hold a package between them and a loop formed as a continuation of the longer end of the material adapted to receive a supporting agent.
2. In a package holder, a length of material doubled on itself, one end projecting beyond the other end, the said material at the looped end being corrugated and extending at an angle to an intermediate portion and the shorter end of said strip extending parallel with the 100 (1 portion and at an angle to the intermediate portion in spaced relation to the looped portion and terminating in an inturned flange to hold a package, the other portion of said length of material being shaped to occupy a position substantially parallel with the wall formed by the shorter end and in spaced relation thereto and operative to coact therewith to hold a package between them and the loop formed as a continuation of the longer end of the material adapted to receive a supporting agent.
