, Application July 22, 1936, Serial No. 91,852
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a combination pocket kit.
The invention has for an object the construction of a combination pocket kit which is characterized by a main central pocket, smaller pockets arranged on one of the sides thereof and other pockets arranged on the other side thereof.
Still further the invention proposes to so con struct the pocket kit that it may be made from various sheet materials such as leather, canvas, cloths, etc.
Still further the invention contemplates constructing the combination pocket kit so that it is characterized by several superimposed strips of material bent at a transverse line forming superimposed layers and securing the edges of these layers together with stitches so as to form pockets.
Another one of the objects of this invention resides in the provision of auxiliary strips of ma terial secured on one of the walls of said pockets for forming additional pockets.
Still further the invention proposes an arrangement whereby certain of said strips are releasably held in position so that they may be removed and thus remove excessive pockets from the kit when desired.
For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:-
Fig. 1 is a, perspective view of a combination pocket kit constructed according to this invention.
Fig. 2 is a rear perspective view of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a kit similar to the one illustrated in Fig. 1 but of modified form.
Fig. 5 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line 55 of Fig. 4.
The combination pocket kit, according to this invention, comprises several superimposed strips of material III, II and I2 bent at a transverse line I 3 forming several superimposed layers II'I and la Ii and Il and I2 and I2 These layers are secured together by lines of stitches I4 along the sides of the combination pocket kit and thus produce pockets. The layers Ill and NW produce a large main central pocket I.
The layers Ill and N form a pocket I5. The layers II and I2 form a pocket IS; the layers It] and II form a pocket I1; and the layers II and I2 form a pocket Ill. The upper edge of the layer II is slightly higher than the upper edge of the layer i2 so that it is exposed and may I easily be gripped by ones fingers and render the pockets adjacent it more convenient to open.
Several auxiliary strips of material are engaged within the pocket l and are associated with stitches forming additional pockets. There is a central strip of material I9 upon which a narrower and shorter piece of material is engaged. The materials I9 and 20 are secured together by lines of stitches 2| along the edges of the material 20. This forms a pocket 22 between the material I9 and 20. Additional strips of material 23 and 24 are disposed within the pocket I5 and are secured by their outer edges in stationary positions by the said stitches I4. At their inner edges the strips 23 and 24 are secured down by the stitches 2|. Thus, additional pockets are formed. Lines of stitches 26 along the edges of the material IS secure this material to the rear Ill This forms another pocket. The layer I2 is fashioned in the form of a wine glass (see Fig. 1) and auxiliary stitches M are engaged along the edges thereof. Thus, the pocket I6 is of wine glass shape formation.
In Figs. 4 and 5 a modified form of invention has been disclosed in which stitches 2| serve to secure together the strips of material I9 and 2D. In this form of the invention the strip of material I9 is not attached to the adjacent layer of material Ill The strips of material 23 and 24' are made of separate sections fixedly attached to the strip 20 by means of the stitches 2| and hook fasteners 21 serve to detachably connect the portion I9, 20, 23' and 24' to the adjacent section Ifl These lines of hooked fasteners are controlled by a slide 28. The edges of the strips of the material 23 and 24 below the top edge of the layer li indicated by the reference numerals 23 and 23* respectively, are free and merely disposed within the pocket I5. When it is desired the slides 28 may be moved upwards to disengage the hook fasteners 2'! and then the strips 23 and 24' together with the strips I9 and 20 may be removed. The stitches I4 serve to hold one of the sections of the hook fastener 21 upon the layer la The operation of the device is as follows:--
A pencil may be placed within the compartment immediately below the strip 20. A comb may be placed within the compartment immediately behind the strip l9. Scissors and other small implements may be placed in the pockets immediately behind the strips 21 and 24. The other pockets may be used to hold papers, coins, paper money, and the like.
While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the pre cise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United P States Letters Patent is:
1. A combination pocket kit comprising several superimposed strips of material bent at a transverse line forming several layers, lines of stitches securing the edges of said layers together forming pockets, and auxiliary strips of material secured on one of the walls of one of said pockets forming additional pockets, said auxiliary strips of material being removably secured within said pocket, with hook fasteners along the sides thereof.
2. A combination pocket kit comprising several superimposed strips of material bent at a transverse line forming several layers, lines of stitches securing the edges of said layers together forming pockets, and auxiliary strips of material secured on one of the walls of one of said pockets forming additional pockets, said auxiliary strips of material being removably secured within said pocket, with hook fasteners along the sides thereof, said hook fasteners extending between the top of said auxiliary strip of material down to an intermediate point of said auxiliary strips near the top of an adjacent strip so as to be readily accessible and the portion of said auxiliary strips extending into said strips being free therefrom.
