Application December 8, 1941, Serial No. 422,18?.

4 Claims.

The present invention relates to an improved slide holder for calendar or the like, and has for an object to provide a device of this character which may be economically manufactured from sheet material, as for instance cardboard, and in which stop means is provided as an integral part of the members of which the device is constructed for the purpose of limiting the movement of the slide` member of the device relative to the enclosing or envelope member.

` A further object is to provide such means which will not add appreciably to the thickness of the holder so that the invention may be effectually incorporated in a relatively flat type holder to be carried in the vest pocket.

Another object is to provide stop tab means having an integral connection to one of the members of the slide holder extending in parallel relation to the direction of sliding movement of the slide member so that a maximum resistance to tearing or bending is provided, and further to provide such stop means which will permit of a relatively long projection of the slide member from the holder in both directions so that this relatively long movement may be utilized in connection with relatively long calendar data, or other types of data printed upon the members of the device.

A further object is to provide stop means which will not impair the use of the full front surfaces of the holder and slide members to contain printed data. Y

With 'the above and other objects in view embodiments of the invention are shown in the accompanying drawing, and these embodiments will be hereinafter more fully described with reference thereto, and the invention will be finally pointed out in the claims.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a front elevation of a slide holder for acalendar, partially broken away, and showing iny dot-and-Vdash lines the position of the slide member projected in one direction.

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view, taken along the line 2--2 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view, taken along the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a front elevation of the slide member of the device in detached iiat relation.

Fig. 5 is an inside elevation of the holder or envelope member of the device in unfolded ilat relation.

Fig. 6 is a front elevation, partially broken away, of a modified form of the invention.

Fig. 7 is a vertical sectional view, taken along the line I-'I of Fig. 6.

Similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several gures of the drawing.

Referring to the drawing, and more particularly to Figs. 1 to 5 thereof, the slide holder according to the exemplary embodiment of the invention illustrated therein comprises a rectangular holder or envelope member, open at each end, and consisting of a rectangular front portionl, a rectangular back portion II, adapted to be folded downwardly upon the front portion along a longitudinal fold line I2, and a longitudinally extending nap portion I3, adapted to be folded upwardly from the lower edge of the front portion I0 along a longitudinal fold line I4 into the space between the front and back portions.

The flap I3 constitutes a securing flap for the holder or envelope member and also an element of the limit stop means for cooperation with the slide member, being provided for thisy purpose with a longitudinal slot I5, preferably midway between its longitudinal edges and having its ends spaced a predetermined distance from the ends` of the flap. The flap I3 is adapted to be adhesively secured by glue or the like to the inner surface of the lower edge portion of the back portion II, along the portion of the flap I3 between the slot I5- and the fold line I4 and also along-the end portions of the iiap between the ends of the slot I5 and the end edges of the flap, this glued area being shown in Fig. 5 by the glue I6 applied to the inner surface of the edge portion of the back II preparatory to having the iiap I3 engaged and secured thereto.

The front portion I0 is provided with longitudinal transversely spaced parallel sight openings I'I and I8 through which slide member containing data to be read in cooperation with data upon the face of the holder is visible. At the ends of the front and back portions I0 and I I there are provided thumbnotches I9 to facilitate the pulling out ofthe slide member by grasping its ends between the fingers. Calendar data 20 and 2| is printed upon the outer face of the front member II) in relation to the sight openings I1 and I8.

The slide member 22 is of rectangular form to t slidably within the holder or envelope member, and centrally of its lower marginal portion is provided with an upwardly projecting lanced out stop tab 25 integrally connected along the bending line 24. The space between the lower edge of the slide member and the bending line 24 is slightly less than the width of the portion of the flap I3 between the slot I5 and the fold line I4, so that in the assembled relation as shown clearly by the sectional view, Fig. 3, the bending line 24 is disposed in the space between the ilap I3 and the front portion I0 below the slot I5, and the stop tab portion 25 is engaged through the slot I5 and projects above it between the portion of the ap I3 above the slot I5 and the back portion II, so that as the slide is pulled outwardly in either direction the stop tab 25 has free sliding movement until it engages the opposed end of the slot I5. The length of the slot as well as the width of the stop tab may be determined s as to limit the projection of the slide member to any desired eXtent in either direction of movement.

Upon the forward side of the slide member there is printed calendar data 26 and 2'I in position to show through the slide openings I'I and I8 and adapted through sliding movement of the slide member for cooperation with the calendar data 2B and 2| upon the face of the holder or envelope member.

In Figs. 6 and '7 I have illustrated a modified form of the invention in which the front portion I0 of the holder or envelope member is provided at its lower edge with a securing flap I3a folded upwardly and secured by gluing to the lower marginal edge portion of the back portion II, this ilap being provided centrally of its upper edge with a projecting stop tab portion 25a, engaged through a slot Ia provided longitudinally of the slide member adjacent to and slightly above the upper edge of the ilap portion I3a. The ends of the slot terminate in spaced relation to the ends of the slide member, and as the slide member is projected in either projection from the holder or envelope member it is limited in its projecting movement by engagement of the ends oi the slot with the stop tab portion a. As in the rst embodiment the length of the slot, as well as the width of the tab: portion may be determined to limit the projection of the slide member to any desired extent in either direction.

I have illustrated and described preferred and satisfactory embodiments of the invention, but it will be understood that changes may be made therein, within the spirit and scope thereof, as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

l. In a slide holder device, a holder element comprising front and back parts and a securing rlap portion integral with one o said front and back parts and secured to the inner side of the other part whereby said flap portion is enclosed between said front and back parts, a slide element engaged within said holder element `for longitudinal sliding movement including a marginal portion overlying said securing ap portion, and limit stop means cooperating between said securing iiap portion and said overlying marginal portion comprising a longitudinal slot in one of said portions having its ends spaced a predetermined distance from the ends of said portion and a transversely projecting stop tab integral with said other portion and engaged through said slot, both said slot and tab being enclosed within and concealed by said iront and back parts.

2. In a slide holder device, a holder element comprising front and back parts and a securing flap portion integral with said front part extending inwardly frorn a longitudinal edge of said front part between said front and back parts and provided with a longitudinal slot intermediate its longitudinal edges having its ends spaced a predetermined distance from the ends of said flap portion, said flap portion being secured to the inner side of said back portion at one side of said slot and 'being unsecured at the other side of said slot, a slide element engaged within said holder element for longitudinal sliding movement, and a stop tab carried by said slide element engaged through said slot for longitudinal sliding movement therein, abutment of said tab with the ends of said slot limiting the sliding movement of said slide element, both said slot and tab: being enclosed within and con- 1 cealed by said front and back parts.

3. In a slide holder device, a holder element comprising front and back parts and a securing flap portion integral with said front part eX- tending inwardly from a longitudinal edge of said front part between said front and back parts and provided with a longitudinal slot intermediate its longitudinal edges having its ends spaced a predetermined distance from the ends of said flap portion, said flap portion being secured to the inner side of said back part at one side of said slot and being unsecured at the other side of said slot, a slide element engaged within said holder element for longitudinal sliding movement, and a stop tabintegral with said slide element spaced from a longitudinal edge thereof engaged through said slot and disposed at the rearward slide of said unsecured part of said flap portion at one side of said slot for longitudinal sliding movement in said slot, engagement of said stop tab with the ends of said slot limiting sliding movement of said slide element, both said slot and tab being enclosed within and concealed by said front and back parts.

4. In a slide holder device, a holder element comprising front and back parts and a securing flap portion integral with said front part extending upwardly from its lower edge between said front and back parts and secured to the inner side of said back part, a stop tab portion integral with the upper edge of said ap portion projecting upwardly therefrom in unsecured relation to said back part, and a slide element engaged within said holder element for longitudinal sliding movement having a longitudinal slot spaced from its lower edge and engaged by said stop tab, whereby longitudinal sliding movement of said slide element is limited by the engagement of the ends of said slot with said stop tab, both said slot and tab being enclosed within and concealed by said front and back parts.
