LABEL- HOLDING PULL.

PECIFIC TION forming part of Letters Patent 1\T0. 729,351, dated May 26, 1903. Application filed November 29, 1902. SerialNo.133,Z5 3. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern Be it known that 1, CHARLES F. KADE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Sheboygan, in the county of Sheboygan and State of Wisconsin, have inven'tednewand useful Improvements in Label-Holding Pi'ills, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a pull for a drawer or the like having label-holding means in connection therewith; and the primary object of thesame is to provide a device of this class embodying means for expeditiously securing it in applied position'and obstructing the movement thereof after it is applied.

The invention consists in the construction and arrangement of the several parts, which will be more fully hereinafter described and claimed.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective viewof a pull embodying the features of the invention. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a combined retaining and bearing plate embodied in the pull organization. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the grip member of the pull, showing the means for holding a label therein. Fig. 4 is a transverse vertical section through aportion of adrawer or other device and the improved pull applied thereto. Similar numerals of reference are employed to indicate corresponding'parts in the several;

views. 7

The numeral 1 designates a grip member, which is substantially hollow and has a de pending curved flange 2 and a label-seat 3,;

with an opening 4 above the same to expose a label arranged in the said seat. Extending horizontally in a rearward direction from the.

center of the seat is an angular shank or bolt 5, having a terminal screw-threaded stem 6' to receive a securing-nut 7. The grip member 1 inclines upwardly and rearwardly from its lower extremity, and terminates in a rearwardly-directed curvedflange 8, from which vertically straight rear-end edges 9 depend.

A combined retaining and bearing plate 10 is used with the grip member 1 and is preferably of rectangular form, having rearwardlyextending spurs 11 at the angles thereof, which are driven into the front portion or outer side of a drawer or other device to which the imerative position.

ever, that this precise form of, the label-seat 7o terial of the drawer or other device.

tween the inner portions of the edges9 of the grip member 1 in a longitudinal direction and the distance between the free edge of the "flange 8 and the lower terminals of the edges 9 in a vertical direction, and thereby provide an upper longitudinal elongated shoulder 13 to and end vertical shoulders 14. Through the center of the ofiset 12 an opening 15 is formed corresponding in contour to that of the shank or bolt 5.

The label seat or pocket 3 will be preferably formed, as shown by Fig. 4, and open at its upper end, sothat a label maybe slipped thereinto before the grip member is secured in op- It will be understood, howmay be varied without departing from. the spirit of the invention.

In assembling the parts of the pull the com bined retaining and bearing-plate 10 is firmly applied over the outer side of a drawer-front or securedto the exterior portion of any other device by embedding the spurs 11in the ma- The opening 15 is caused to coincide with an opening 16, formed in the front of the drawer or other device, and the grip member-2 is applied against the plate 10 by inserting the bolt 5 through the opening 15 and the opening 16. The grip member 1 is closely pressed against the'plat'e 10, so that the free edge of the flange 8 and the end edges 9 will be in close contact with the longitudinal and vertical shoulders 13 and 14, formed by the offset 12. The washer is then placed over the threaded stem 6 close to the inner side of the front of the drawer or other device, and the nut 7 is then turned over the said stem and forced into tight engagement with the said washer to thereby immovably hold the grip member 1 against the plate 10. The angular form of the bolt 5 would of itself prevent the grip member from having a'pivotal movement on the plate 10 or obviate a tendency toward loosening the nut by unequal pulling force exerted on the grip member. It is obvious, however, no

that despite the angular formation of the bolt 5 the continued pulling strain exerted on the grip member 1 would soon wear the opening 16 and the bolt 5 become loose, and hence the nut 7 would be gradually worked off the screwstem 6. The plate 10 is therefore used as an auxiliary retention means to overcome the least tendency toward lateral or pivotal movement due to the strain exerted on the grip 1, and said plate also serves as abearing means to avoid defacement of the outer surface of the drawer or other device to which the pull is applied and to provide aresisting bearingsurface for the grip.

The improved pull device may be modified in its proportions and dimensions, and will be found exceptionally advantageous for the purpose for which it has been devised, and it is proposed to ornament the same in any manner desired.

Having thus fully described the invention, what is claimed as new is l. A drawer-pull comprising a downwardlyinclincd grip member having alabel holding and exposing means and also an angular bolt extending therefrom, a combined retaining and bearing plate having an offset to fit within the rear portion of the grip member, the said bearing-plate also having an angular opening through which the said bolt extends, and means for holding the bolt in applied position.

2. A pull of the class set forth, comprising a grip member having a label holding and exposing means and also provided with a securing device extending therefrom, and a plate engaged by the grip member havin g rectan gular offset to extend in the rear portion of the grip member for preventing the latter from moving laterally.

A pull device of the class set forth, comprising a grip member having a label holding and exposing means and also provided with a securing device extending rearwardly therefrom, a plate having an offset for engagement with the rear portion of the grip member and also having a spur by which said plate is secured, the rear edges of the grip member bearing upon the face of the plate close to a margin of the ofiset, and means for holding the securing device in applied position.

i. A pull device of the class set forth, comprising a grip member having a label holding and exposing means and also provided with a plate having an offset to engage the rear portion of the grip member, the rear edges of the grip member bearing upon the outer face of the plate close to the margin of the offset of the latter, and means for securin g the grip member and plate in contact with each other.

5. A pull device, comprising a downwardlyinclined grip member having a label holding and exposing means and also provided with an angular bolt projecting rearwardly therefrom terminating in a threaded stem, a plate having an offset to engage the rearportion of the grip member and through which the bolt extends, and means for holding the bolt in applied position.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
