STYLUS HOLDER Filed March 9, 1944 JIM Inventor M/be fPearson WWW 29m Patented Nov. 14, 1944 STYLUS HOLDER Willie T. Pearson, Vicksburg, Miss.

Application March 9, 1944, Serial No. 525,754 3 Claims. ('01. 120-9) This invention appertains to a new and novel attachment for various types of writing instruments such as pens, pencils, styluses and the like, but has reference in particular to a finger accommodating sleeve-like adapter which is especially,

but not necessarily, best suited to serve as a pressure cushioning holder for pencils, etc.

Another object is to lessen the hazard of point breakage by absorbing shock, and to also, permit of practically the entire pencil being used up.

These and other objects will be apparent by a reading of the specification, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 shows a longitudinal sectional view of the holder showing the pencil in elevation.

Figure 2 is a side elevation, showing the holder with the pencil in place, and

Figure 3 is a cross section taken on the line 3--3 of Figure 2, and looking in the direction in which the arrows point.

The numeral l refers to the holder having encased therein a pencil 2. The holder may be made up of any suitable material, such as a plastic or metal. I have provided the guide bushings 3, 4 and 5 in order to eliminate wobbling or vibration of the pencil and in addition to definitely and steadily hold a small stub. In the chamber 1 is located a spring 8, the lower coils 9, thereof being arranged to surround and frictionally engage the pencil 2 while the upper end coils of the spring, which loosely surround the pencil, rest or abut against the bushing 5.

The lower end, !0, of the holder acts as a guide when there is only a stub to be used.

Figure 2 illustrates the outward appearance of the holder with the stylus in place. The section illustrated in Figure 3 shows the holder I and the relative positions of the spring 8 and the penis applied on the holder I. This particular action is due to the cooperation of the parts.

I have found that a holder of this type assists one in improving his penmanship. It also alleviates the cramped fingers caused by using the ordinary pencil and particularly in using a stub.

Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

1. As a new article of manufacture, an attachment for pens, pencils and the like comprising an'adapter sleeve structure including embracing and guide bushings," and a coiled spring suspended in said sleeve and bearing against one of said bushings and having one end constricted and arranged to frictionally embrace and grip the pen or pencil, as the case may be.

2. In a device of the character described, a writing instrument having a stall portion, an adapter sleeve having apertures at the upper and lower ends thereof slidably mounted on said staff portion, a plurality of bushings internally disposed in said sleeve securely to hold staffs of varying lengths, and a coil spring, the lower end of said spring engaging said staff and the upper end abutting the lower surface of one of said bushings, whereby to urge the lower end of said staff toward said openings in the lower end of said sleeve.

3. In a device of the character described, a pencil, an adapter sleeve having apertures at the upper and lower ends thereof slidably mounted on said pencil, a plurality of bushings internally disposed in said sleeve securely to hold progressively shorter lengths of pencils, and a coil spring, the lower end of said spring engaging said pencil, the upper end abutting the lower surface of one of said bushings, whereby to urge the point of said pencil toward and outwardly through said opening in the lower end of said sleeve.
