SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 585,423, dated June 29, 1897.

Application filed December 17, 1896. Serial No. 616,096. (No model.)

To ztZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, ARTEMAS M. BOGLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at T0- wanda, in the county of Bradford and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Clip-Binders; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of. the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to temporary binders for securing periodicals, magazines, and the like together in a temporary manner.

The invention comprises a spring-clip havin g apertures formed in its opposite ends and said ends turned under to form a loop at each end under the aperture.

In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, Figure lrepresents a perspective view of a bundle of papers secured together by my improved spring-clip. Fig. 2 represents a central vertical section through my said clip, the detaching-levers being applied thereto for removing it from the papers. View of my invention applied to a number of magazines to bind the same together without the employment of the binding-strips.

A in the drawings represents a bundle of: papers, periodicals, or the like; 13, the cylindrical binding-strips, applied on opposite sides of the same; 0, my improved clip, and D the detaching-levers. The said clip 0 is constructed of a single piece of spring metal provided with apertures c and rounded ends 0, turned under to form a loop to meet the apertures c.

It will be observed from the foregoing description that when the clip is applied over the binding-strips B smooth rounded edges will be presented to the papers and thus prevent all injury to the latter; also, suitable recesses will be formed below the apertures c Fig. 3 represents a perspective for the insertion of the angular ends at of the detaching-levers. D. Should the clip lie fiat upon the binding-strips at each end, it would be next to impossible to insert the said ends of the detaching-levers under the metal of the clip to expand the clip and remove it from the said binding-strips.

By the peculiar construction of my improved clip the same may be always readily removed by simply inserting the ends of the detaching-levers through the apertures c: and between the surface of the clip proper and the bent-under portion. By this means the clips may be instantly applied or detached and when so applied hold firmly in position I without any liability of cutting or otherwise injuring the papers.

In the application of my invention shown in Fig. 3 the binding-strips B are omitted and the clamps are applied directly to the tem porary cover on the backs of the magazines.

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

1. A temporary binder for periodicals, or the like, comprising a spring-clip having apertures formed in its opposite ends, and turnedunder portions forming loops under said apertures, substantially as described.

2. A temporary binder, comprising a single plate of metal bent into an approximately semicircular form and provided at each end with an aperture, and a loop extending under said apertures so that a space for the insertion of the detaching-levers is left below the said aperture, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
