4 Claims. (C1. 40-17)
My invention aims to provide improvements locking arrangement described'is well known in
in detachable ornament-supporting structures for
bag frames and the like.
In the drawing which illustrates preferred
5
embodiments of my invention:-—
Figure 1 is a front view of the upper part of
a handbag frame structure and attached orna
merits;
10
Fig. 2 is an end view of Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a front view partly in section of the
frame shown in Fig. 1 showing the manner of
attachment of an ornament;
Fig. 4 is a section on the line 4-4 of Fig. 3;
Fig. 5 shows a modi?ed form of a device for
15 detachably securing the ornament to a channel
member, and. shows part of an ornament and.
part of the supporting structure; and
Fig. 6 is a plan section of the channel member
and integral ornament-holding element taken on
the line 6-6 of Fig. 5.
My invention is particularly, though not ex
clusively, adapted for use with ladies’ handbag
frames and aims to provide means to detachably
secure an ornamental device to a bag frame
N) an
channel.
'
Referring to the preferred embodiment of my
invention, I have shown (Figs. 1 through 4) orna
mental devices | (in this case, for illustrative
purposes, the letters _“B” and “M”) supported
30 by a channel member 2 carried by channelled
bag frame members 3-3. My invention relates
particularly to the detachable yieldablerspring
member 4 and its combination with the orna
ments ! and the channel member 2 to prevent
35 accidental relative longitudinal movement of the
ornament with respect to the channel member.
The spring member 4 is yieldable and permits
the ornament to be removed fro-m the channel
support during intentional disengagement when
su?icient force is applied to the ornament.
The channel member 2 is provided with a bot
tom wall 5 and spaced walls 6-6 extending up
wardly and inwardly, and the inwardly extend
ing portions l--'l provide means to support the
45 ornamental device I, as described hereinafter.
The channel member 2 is held to the bag frame
member 3 by a half oval shaped clip 8, shown
in Fig. 2, which may slide back and forth over
the member 9, thus providing means to open
50 and close the handbag members. A plate i0 is
secured to the inner wall of a bag frame 3 and
as the clip 8 carrying the channel member 2
and the ornament I is moved beyond the limits
of the plate I0 the handbag frames may be sepa
55 rated at the top and vice versa to close. The
the art and since it does not form a part of
the invention further description thereof is un
necessary.

~ " The ornaments lr—l are provided with longi- _
.tudinal grooves I |—|l at both sides which are
arranged and adapted ‘to 'fit the portions 'l—]
of the channel member 2, as mentioned hereto
fore, so that the channel 2 is substantially ?lled
10
by the base of the ornament, providing a neat»
appearance at the end, as shown in Fig. 2.
As illustrated in Fig. 3, in order to provide
means whereby the ornamental ‘devices l--l may
be detachably secured within the channel sup
port 2, I have provided a yieldable arched spring
member l2 adapted to ?t and be held under
tension within the recessed under-cut l3 in the
ornament I. The spring member has a projec
tion or detent element M which ?ts into an aper
ture l5 in the channel support 2.
'
'
To assemble the ornament and spring member 20
within the channel support, as shown in Fig. 3,
an ornament having the proper grooves and
under-cut heretofore described is ?tted with a
detachable spring. member I 2. The spring is in
serted into the under-cut I3 and is thereafter 25
partially frictionally held and partially held by
spring tension therein. The ornament is then
'
brought up to the channel and when proper
alignment of the grooves ll-H and‘ portions
'l—l is obtained the ornament is moved along 30
the channel until it abuts the stop member [6
located in the channel 2 in such a position that
at-the instant the ornament abuts the aforesaid '
element i6 a partial pressure on the spring mem
ber 82 is released because the detent l4. snaps 35
into the aperture Ill. The aforesaid pressure is
caused by the fact that until proper alignment
of the detent M and aperture I5 is obtained the
detent carried by the yieldable spring member ~
is pressing against the bottom wall 5 of the 40
channel 2 during the course of the ornament
along the channel so that when the detent l4
drops into the aperture l5 only a part of the
pressure is released, the spring member remain
ing under suiiicient tension to hold the ornament 45
in position and prevent accidental displacement.
To remove the ornament it is only necessary
to apply suf?cient force to overcome the tension
of the spring member holding the detent M with
in the aperture 15, as described heretofore, and 50
when this is done the detent rides up over the
side of the aperture and is carried along by the
ornament I while the ornament is being com
pletely disengaged from the channel.

In Figs. 5 and 6 I have shown an additional
embodiment of a means to detachably secure an
ornament within a channelled member. The
ornament is provided with the same grooves H—
II as before but the underecut I1 is smaller and
is not necessarily the whole width of the orna
ment as the under-cut l3 and may be only of
su?icient size to fit the detent I8 provided by a
yieldable tongue l9 cut out of the base of the
during intentional engagement with and disen
gagement from the support member.
2. An ornament mounting structure compris
ing, in combination, a channeled support, an or
nament, and a spring member carried by said or
?xed at one end but yieldable at the other to
allow for intentional movement of the ornament
nament, said ornament having a recessed portion
adapted to hold said spring member and said 10
spring member having a detent element directly
engaging a portion of said channelled support to
prevent accidental relative movement of the
parts, said spring member being so mounted in
said recessed portion as to be self-retained there 15
in but self-yielding for engagement and disen
gagement of the detent element when su?icient
force is applied to the ornament during inten
tional engagement with and disengagement from
20
the channelled support.
3. An ornament mounting structure compris
but to prevent accidental movement thereof.
By my invention I have provided a cheaply
manufactured and positive acting spring member
ing, in combination, a channeled support, an
ornament, and a spring member carried by said
ornament, said ornament having a recessed por
10 channel 2, as shown in Figs. 5 and 6. If desirable,
a whole series of under-cuts I‘! may be provided
for adjustment purposes, as will be understood
by those skilled in the art.
The ornament may be positioned and removed
in the same manner as described heretofore, ex
cept in this instance the spring member is pro
vided by an integral portion of the channeled
member and only the ornament is moved in re
lation to the channel, the spring member being
25 for the purpose of detachably securing an orna
mental device within a channeled member. The
practical value of the embodiments of my inven
tion lies in the fact that one may choose any
type of ornament and be able to secure it on a bag»,
frame member as described and when it is de
tion adapted to hold said spring member, said 25
spring member comprising a strip of spring metal
having a detent element adapted directly to en
gage a portion of said channel to prevent acci
dental relative movement of the parts, said strip
of spring metal being so mounted in said recess 30
sirable to change the ornament for another type
to be self-yielding for engagement and disengage
it may be readily removed and a new one substi~
tuted. Heretofore, an ornament once assem
bled was a more or less permanent ?xture, but
ment of the detent element when su?icient force
is applied to the ornament during intentional en
35 by my invention I have provided means where
by the owner of a handbag of the type described
may use ornaments of their own choosing and
suited to their own tastes and, what is more, may
40
in said recess as to be self-yielding for engage
ment and disengagement of the detent means
when su?icient force is applied to the ornament
change them at will.
Another feature of my invention is the fact
that the detachable ornament-supporting de
vice or spring member described and illustrated
herein is entirely concealed, being hidden by the
ornament and the channel member. ‘This fact
permits any type of ornament to be used without
detracting from its appearance.
While I have illustrated and described preferred
embodiments of my invention, I do not wish to be
limited thereby, because their scope is best de
?ned by the following claims.
I claim:
1. An ornament mounting structure compris
ing, in combination, a support member, an orna
ment member and a spring member, said spring
U! in member having a detent means directly engaging
a portion of said support member to prevent acci
dental relative longitudinal movement of the
parts, said ornament member having a recess
therein, said spring member being so mounted
gagement with and disengagement from the
35
channelled support.
4. An ornament mounting structure of the
class described comprising, in combination, a sup
port having spaced walls extending upwardly and
inwardly, an ornament having longitudinal
grooves at the sides to correspond with said 40
inwardly extending walls of said support, said
walls adapted to ?t into said grooves and
support said ornament, and a spring member
adapted to locate said ornament on said support,
said ornament having a recessed portion adapted
to hold said spring member, said spring member
comprising a strip of spring metal and having a
detent element adapted to directly engage a por
tion of said support to prevent accidental relative
longitudinal movement of the ornament and of
the support, said spring member being so mount
ed in said recess as to be retained by said orna
ment but be self-yielding for engagement and
disengagement of the support when suf?cient
force is applied to the ornament during intention 55
al engagement with and disengagement from the
support.
