4 Claims.

This invention relates to improvements in a clip combined with a spring clip means; and the objects of the improvement are, to provide an enlarged friction contact with the plane surface and a wide contact with the edge of papers ,to bind securely and to prevent slipping sidelong, to provide ample surface for printing or lettering to classify and identify papers held by contact with sheets of paper, its ample lettering surface increasing its usefulness in the construction and arrangement, which will become manifest as the description proceeds, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, where- Figure l is a plan view of the entire structure, showing the inside in a flattened position; Figure 2 is a perspective view of the clip folded and fragment top section showing a spring clip means combination; Figure 3 is a perspective view of the clip folded in combination with a spring clip means showing the reverse side of,

Figure 2; Figure 4 is a detailed view in perspective of the actual spring clip means shown in Figures 2 and 3; Figure 5 is a perspective View showing the clip attached to fragment sheet of paper; Figure 6 is a perspective view of the clip showing an extended base cover and a wide margin contact with multiple spring clip means and attached to a fragment sheet of paper with a fragment view of the base; Figure 7, is a modified form of a spring clip means showing longitudinal side view, Figure 8 is a modified form of a spring clip means showing longitudinal section of the entire structure.

The device consists essentially of a single piece of foldable relatively flexible material folded in combination with a spring clip means; the clip I, the spring clip means 2, in order to distinguish the two sides of the structure forming the clip the base is designated 3, the top i, the fold 5, aperture ingfold 5, aperture in 3 is I aperture in i is la, the spring clip'means 2 having adjacent rounded ends 8 8, in order to combine l and 934, Serial No. 733,235

2, the adjacent ends of 2 designated 8 8 enter 6 one of which ends 8 emerge through I the adjacent end 8 emerge through la, providing a smooth continuous inside between 3 and 4, the straight end members of 2 designated 9 9 cross over 1 5 and la on the outside of 3 and i, combining i and 2 in a stable locked position, by the means of apertures in! and the position of the parts of 2; Figure 5 is referred to showing i attached to a fragment sheet of paper l0, showing the 10 broad friction contact of l on l0 and the wide margin contact 5 with edge of II] to prevent slipping sidelong; Figure 6 is referred to showing i with an extended base cover 3 underfragment In and showing 4 with wide friction con- 15 tact on ID showing 2 in multiple and ample margin contact of I at 5 on ID to hold file papers securely.

The modified form of 2 Figure 7 showing a longitudinal side view, showing 8 8 bent inward 2 one to the other at H to increase pressure inward; in Figure '8 is shown alongitudinal section of the combined unit, showing 2 in a modified form with ends 8 8 in contact with 3 and 4 by means of bend H.

It will be apparent from the foregoing description, that I provide a clip having ample friction contact with the plane surface of papers and ample margin contact with the edges for holding the same securely and that ample space is pro- 30 vided on the outsides for printing or writing and that the device is highly serviceable, that the invention is not limited to specific construction and arrangement of parts as shown and described and that certain modifications may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or intent of the invention.

What is claimed is:

1. A clip formed of a single piece of relatively 40 flexible foldable material folded, having an aperture in the fold, an aperture in the top cover, and an aperture in the base cover in combination with a spring clip means having rounding ends and straight end members arranged through apertures in the fold and covers with the adjacent rounding ends and straight end members on the outside and the straight end members lying across apertures frictionally engaging and exerting pressure on the covers.

2. A clip formed of a single piece of relatively flexible foldable material folded, providing enlarged friction contact with the plane surface and a wide contact with the edge of papers having an aperture in the fold, an aperture in the 5 top cover, and an aperture in the base cover in combination with a spring clip means having rounding ends and straight end members arranged in a locked position through and across apertures in the covers.

3. A clip formed of a single piece of relatively flexible foldable material folded, providing ample surface for printing or lettering having an aperture in the fold, an aperture in the top cover, and an aperture in the basecover in combination with a spring'clip means on the inside and on the outside of the covers by arrangement through and across apertures in the covers.

4. A clip formed of a single piece of relatively flexible foldable material folded, having an aperture in the fold, an aperture in the top cover, and an aperture in the base cover in combination with a spring clip means having adjacent rounding ends bent inward in contact with the outside of covers, having straight end members resting on outside of covers across apertures.
