SFECIFIGATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 739,644, dated September 22, 1903;

Serial Nd. 138.042. (No model.) l

.To all whom t may' concern Be it known that We,`HUGH C. BOYLE and JOHN MAUM, citizens of the United States, residing at Elizabeth, in the county of 'Union and State of New Jersey, have iu vented new and useful Improvements in Envelops' for CoiledWire, of which the following is a specification.

Our invention relates to a new and improved envelop for coiled wire; and its object is to provide a simple and inexpensive device which may be readily placed upon a coil of wire and will protect the same.

The invention consists of a circular recepfacie formed of iienible material, the one side of which is cut away to form an inlet through which a coil of wire may be inserted into the device a `Hap which extends into the receptacle and is secured therein and to the edge of the in.-

.let by a novel arrangement of straps..

The invention'also consists in the further novel construction and combination of parts hereinafter more fully described and claimed, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, showing the preferred form of our invention, and in which-A Figure lis a plan view of our improved 'receptacle for coiled wire, showing the outer securing means unfastened; and Fig. 2 is a section on line 2 2 of Fig. l.

The receptacle or envelop constituting our invention is formed of two sections of flexible material, one of said sections 1 being circular and having its edges turned in one direction and sewed or otherwise secured to the edges of the opposite section 2. This section is substantially semicircnlar in form, and the straight edge 3 thereof is provided at the center with a recess 4, thereby forming two similar flaps, each of which is provided at its inner corner with a ring 5, to Aone of which is fastened a strap 6. A flexible closure 7 is secured to that portion of the edge of section l which is not connected to section'Z of the envelop, and this closure has its free edge 8 tapered, as shown in dotted lines, and said edge extends'nnder the section 9 and is provided at the center with a buckle 9, adapted to be engaged by a strap 9', fastened to the inner surface of section 2. A ring 10 is connected to the closure 7 ata point intermediate This inlet is adapted to he closed by the curved edge thereof and the straight edge 3 of section 2, and adjacent to this ring is arranged a buckle ll. When it is desired to insert a coil of wire into Athis envelop, strap 9 is disengaged from its buckle and the coil y .inserted in the envelop after the straight edge 3 of section 2 has been folded downward.

The flap of the closure 7, formed by thein.

coil and said coil seated within the envelop between closure 7 and section l. Strap 9' is then connected to'buckle 9, and strap 6 is drawn through rings l() and 5 and finally placed in engagement with buckle 1l. The coil is thus securely heldinl position within the envelop and is fully protected thereby. To remove the coil, it is merely necessary to disengage the straps 6 and 9', draw the inner edge of closure 7 downward, and press down the edge 3 of section 2. The aperture formed inthis manner is sufficiently large to permit of the withdrawal of the coil. lf desired, an aperture l2 may be formed in each of the sections l and 2,v said apertures being arranged in aliuement with each other to permit of the insertion of a wire, cord, or other device for connecting several coils, each of which is provided with an envelop, such as herein described. By providing a recess 4 in the straight edge of the smaller section of the envelop the aps hereinhefore referred to are formed and can be folded downward, so as to permit the closure 7 to be readily inserted between the two sectionsof the envelop and fastened in position therein.

In the foregoing description we have shown the preferred form of our invention, but wev 1. In an envelop of the character described, the combination witha circular section; of a second section secured to the edge thereof and of smaller area than the circular section, said second section having a free edgewith a centrally-arranged recess therein forming ICO iaps, a closure secured to the edge of the circular section and adaptedto extend under the smaller section, means for securing the closure to the edge and under surface of the second section.

2. An envelop of the character described comprising two sections of dilerent areas and secured together at their edges, the smaller section having a straight edge provided with a centrally-arranged recess forming aps, a closure secured to the larger sec'- tion and adapted to project under the smaller section, means for securing said vclosure to the under surface of the smaller section, and fastening devices for securing the closure to the edge of the smaller section at opposite lsides of the recess therein.

3. An envelop of the character described comprising sections of different areas secured together at their edges, the smaller section having a free edge with a centrally-arranged recess therein, a securing-ring upon said edge at each side of the recess, a closure secured to the larger section and adapted to project under the lower section, means for der the smaller section, a ring upon said closure, a strap connected to one of the rings and adapted to engage the remaining rings, means for securing said strap to the closure, and a securing device upon the free edge of the closure for fastening the same in position under the smaller section.

In testimony whereof we aixoursignatures in presence of two witnesses. `V
