1 Claim. (Cl. 224-) This invention relates to a quiver or holder for arrows, an important object of the invention being to provide a quiver which is so constructed that the arrows held therein will be held in spaced relation with respect to each other, so that they may be readily and easily removed for use by the archer wearing the quiver.
An important object of the invention is to provide a quiver comprising an elongated body in the form of a plate, and including a pocket plate secured thereto adapted to be slipped into the hip pocket of the trousers of the archer, securing the quiver in position for use in supporting the arrows.
Another object of the invention is to provide a quiver including an arrow pouch at the lower end of the body, into which the arrowheads are extended, thereby holding the arrows carried in the quiver, in spaced relation with respect to each other protecting the sharp arrow heads against being dulled by contact with each other while held in the quiver, and at the .same time insuring against the arrows rattling while being carried in the quiver.
A further object of the invention is to provide means for supporting the arrows at a predetermined angle of approximately thirty degrees to facilitate the removal of the arrows by the archer, from the quiver.
Still another object of the invention is to provide a rubber mount block secured to the elongated body of the quiver adjacent to the upper end of the body, the rubber mount block extending laterally from the body directly over the pouch so that the notches for receiving the arrows are so disposed with respect to the pouch that the arrows may be readily removed.
Other and further objects and advantages of the invention will be hereinafter described and the novel features thereof defined in the appended claim.
Referring to the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a front elevational view of a quiver, constructed in accordance with the invention.
Fig. 2 is an edge elevational view thereof.
Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken on line 33 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional view through the lower end of the body and pouch of the quiver.
Fig. 6 is a sectional view taken on line 6-6 of Fig. 3.
Fig. 7 is a fragmental elevational View of the quiver showing the pocket plate and belt plate as attached to the body portion of the quiver.
Referring to the drawings in detail, the quiver cornprises a body portion indicated by the reference character 5, which body portion is in the form of an elongated plate. Flanges 5' are formed along the longitudinal side edges of said body portion.
Secured to the lower end of the body portion 5 between said flanges 5', is a pouch 6 in which a rubber block 7 is held, the rubber block being provided with compartments 8 that are arranged in staggered relation with respect to each other, as better shown by Fig. 6 of the drawings.
i 2 These compartments are designed-and shaped to receive the sharp heads of arrows used inhunting, and are so arranged that the sharp edges of one arrowhead will be guarded against contact with the sharp edges of the adjacent arrowhead, to dull the same.
At the upper end of the body portion 5, and secured between said flanges is a rubber bracket 9 that is formed with integral heads 10 having necks 11, the heads adapted to be extended through openings in the body portion 5, as shown by Fig. 4 of the drawings, firmly securing the rubber bracket to the body portion 5.
Formed in the curved outer edge 12 of the rubber bracket 9, are notches 13 that extend inwardly from the edge, providing curved receiving notches 14 having contracted outer portions so that the walls of the notches 14 will grip the shafts of the arrows supported therein and hold the shafts against accidental displacement or rattling, during the carrying of the arrows in the quiver.
The reference character 15 indicates a pocket plate which is substantially wide and of a length to fit a substantial distance within a hip pocket of the archer using the quiver. Theupper end of pocket plate is bent upon itself and spaced from the main portion of the pocket plate, providing a securing flange '16 which is riveted or otherwise secured to the body portion near the upper end thereof, at an angle of approximately thirty degrees with respect to the longitudinal side edges of said body portion, so that the main portion or body of the quiver will be supported at the desired angle to facilitate removal of the arrows carried therein.
In Fig. 7 I have shown a belt plate 17 which is secured along its lower edge to the pocket plate 15, by means of rivets 18. This plate 17 is formed with openings 19 that are elongated vertically, to receive a belt worn by the archer using the quiver, should it be desired to secure the quiver to the archer by means of a belt.
As shown, the belt plate 17 extends upwardly above the upper edge of the pocket plate 15 so that it will fall directly opposite to the belt of the wearer.
From the foregoing it will be seen that due to the construction shown and described, I have provided a quiver which is exceptionally handy, and which is free of the usual straps or screws or other attachments used in securing quivers to the body of the wearer, since all that is necessary to attach the quiver is to slip the pocket plate into the hip pocket securely holding the quiver in place.
What is claimed is:
In a quiver, a body portion comprising an elongated plate, the longitudinal edges of said plate being extended laterally at one side of said elongated plate providing flanges, a pocket plate secured to the other side of said 'body portion extending at an oblique angle with respect to the side edges of said body portion, an arrow pouch having an open side disposed upwardly, secured to said body portion between said flanges at the lower end of said body portion, a flat rubber mount having an arcuate edge and a straight edge, secured to said body portion and having its edges compressed between said flanges at the other end of said body portion and extending laterally therefrom, said body portion having openings extending therethrough adjacent to said mount, and projections on the straight edge of said mount compressibly extended through said openings, said rubber mount having spaced radially disposed notches in the arcuate edge thereof adapted to receive the shafts of arrows supported in the pouch, said notches being outwardly beveled and having substantially circular pockets at their inner extremities, and said pocket plate adapted to be positioned in the pocket of the archer wearing the quiver, supporting said quiver.
