I all WIZWESSES [NYE/V7072 flzlorney a UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

YVILLIAM H. ANDERSON, OF RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA.

PACKAGE-TIE.

I SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 437,548, dated September 30, 1890.

Application filed December 4,1889. Serial No. 332,605. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM H. ANDERSON, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of Riverside, county of San Bernardino, State of California, have invented a new and useful Device for a Package-Tie and an Adjustable Wire Handle Combined; and I hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, which, with the accompanying drawings, will enable any person of ordinary skill in the arts to which my invention most nearly appertains to construct and apply the same.

My invention relates to a device for rapidly and securely tying up packages with any size twine usually used in tying packages in retail stores. The same device may be used by buttonin g it upon any vest-button as a pin cushion, or it may be hung on a nail or hook upon the wall and used to run twine from the spool, which is placed upon the arm of the handle. The handles are made adjustable and of wire, being easily removed, if desired, and placed aside or in the coat-pocket.

The following description fully explains the nature of my invention and the manner in which I proceed to construct and apply and use the same, the accompanying drawings being referred to by letters.

Figure 1 is a plan view of the package as securely tied by my device, showing in oombination the wire adjustable handle device having a pincushion handle I and spool-holder in position for easily handling or carrying same. Fig. 2 is an end view of the adjustable wire-frame handle. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the holder, showing the device ready to be attached and for use. Fig. 4 is the bottom View of the twine-tie holder, showing the wire formed so as to allow a loop made in the twine to hold securely in place while in the act of doing up the package. Fig. 5 is the top or upper side view of the package tie and holder securely in'place. Fig. 6 is a sectional view, half cut away, showing all the parts connected with the package tie and holder.

A is'a package made of suitable material to be tied up by twine.

B is twine or cord of any kind of suitable size commonly used in tying merchandisepackages.

0 is a circular piece of cardboard of good thickness, or it may be made of other serviceable material of any required size.

D isa metallic plate of suitable size. It may be made as small as one inch in diameter, with the edges turned up curve shape, as shown in Fig. 6.

E is a round piece of rubber of suitable thickness, which is placed on top of plate D for the purpose of pressing same tightly on twine when looped under the plate d in tying package.

F is a Wire bolt, bent in the form of a bolt, which secures together all the parts of the tieholder, as shown in Figs. 1 and 6.

G is the lower arm, to which fits closely and movable the upper arms, and to which are attached an upholstered handle, which is made to turn upon the wire frame and is made to answer for a pincushion. This frame is made also to hold a spool of twine to receive twine from when hung up in a suitable place.

H is the upper half of frame.

I is the upholstered handle on frame, as shown.

J is the metallic plate on bottom side of th twinetie holder. (See Fig. 6.)

K is the rubber upon the metallic plate, placed there to' compress the plates D, M, and J more tightly together to hold the twine more securely.

L L L is the wire loop, which extends to the center and around the bent over ends of bolt F on the under side and over the edge of circular rim 0 sufficiently to form a hook L, Fig. 5, on top side to hold the end of twine when beginning the tie to secure the package.

M is another metal plate whereupon the upper plate D is placed to form a bite or grip to hold the twine after being pressed between them in making one turn around the bolt, as shown in Figs. 1 and 6. I

The cheapness, durability, and strength are points of fact.

I do not confine my device to any particular sizes, as they may be made to suit size of package required. Every package leaving any merchants store has the tie-holder. I-Iis advertisement may be printed upon card-board O on the space encircling the outer surface of same. It not only acts as a package tie-up, but as well will be used as a fine source of advertising in the line of business where used,

as others receiving packages will in turn use mounted on the pivot below the disk, the the package-tie again and therefore are liable plates D M, mounted on the pivot above the r 5 to give it a continuous use. disk, the elastic blocks mounted on the pivot Having thus fully described my said invenand bearing on the plates D J, and a loop or 5 tion, What I claim, and desire to secure by hook mounted on the pivot and extending be- Letters Patent, isyond the edge of the disk, as set forth.
