SERVICE HANDLE FOR MARKET BAGS File d June 25, 1948 Patented May 9, 1950 UNITED STATES @A'I'ENT GFFICE 1 Claim.
My improvement relates to a service handle for market bags having cord handles, the principal object of my invention being to provide a simple, practical device that may be easily and cheaply produced and which will be efiective in its use as carrying market bags and bundles or other articles of a similar nature. These specifications are for an improvement on my original service handle, Patent No. 2,444,558, Artemus E. Elliott, inventor. This improvement is a handle that can be attached to the cord handles of a market bag to prevent cutting and abrading the hand when carrying a heavy bag or article. This handle has a diameter of of an inch and is 3 inches long, having a bore or chamber through the center lengthwise and a slot in the outer surface of the handle lengthwise forming two arms. I am now adding a partition through the center of this chamber, forming two chambers. My original handle had one chamber. The reasons for the two chambers is explained in the following:
My reasons for having two chambers in my handle-it prevents the handle from turning over with the slot down making it very unhandy to take hold of when the bag is set down. The two chambers having a cord handle in each chamber keeps the service handle with the slot up at all times, thus the handle is in a proper position at all times to take hold of and carry. This will be considered a great advantage by the public in buying.
Modifications are contemplated within the spirit of the invention and within the scope of the following claim.
My service handle will be explained in the following:
Fig. 1 is the handle attached to part of a market bag.
Fig. 2 is a top view showing the slot and partition.
Fig. 3 is an elevational view of one end.
Fig. 4 is an elevational view of the other end, same as Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 a cross view taken at 5 5, Fig. 2.
The handle is substantially the same as disclosed in my aforementioned patent comprising a hand grip A or" preferably cylindrical shape having a bore extending longitudinally therethrough, the axis of the inner surface of the bore being slightly eccentric so as to form a pair of resilient transverse arms C and D with a longitudinal slot E between the free ends. The bore is then divided by a transverse partitioning element G passing through the center of said bore and extending into the slot E intermediate the arms 0 and D forming two chambers B and B In order to facilitate the insertion of the cords it into the chambers the extremities of the arms C and D are notched as at F, the notch being of greater width at the outer faces of the hand grip and tapering inwardly toward the center. The handle cords are initially inserted into the notched portion and forced into the restricted slot E thus resiliently spreading the arms C and D whereby the cords enter the chambers B and B I claim:
A service handle for carrying articles having a cord support, comprising a handle grip body having an inner longitudinal transversely eccentric bore from end to end thereof, and a longitudinal cord admission slot entering said bore, a partitioning element passing through said bore and intermediate said slot whereby two chambers are formed, said slot being wider at the ends of said grip to facilitate the insertion of the cords within the chambers.
