FILING DEVICE

Application March 20, 1937, Serial No. 132,037
3 Claims. (Cl. 129-4)
This invention relates to a bill ?le or the like
having a ?ling pin on which the papers are
impaled.
,
An object of the invention is to provide a ?le
of the above type having means to protect the
5 point of the ?ling pin so as to prevent injury
due to external contact therewith.
Another object is to provide a ?ling device of
the above type in which the means for protect
ing the point of the ?ling pin also serves to push
10 the papers to be ?led down over the point of the
?ling pin.
Another object is to provide such a device hav
ing means for readily removing the papers from
15 the ?ling pin.
Various other objects and advantages will be
apparent as the nature of the invention is more
fully disclosed.
Although the novel features which are believed
to be characteristic of this invention will be more
20 particularly pointed out in the claims appended
hereto, the invention itself as to its objects and
advantages and the manner of its organization
will be better understood byreferring to the fol
lowing description, taken in connection with the
25 accompanying drawing, in which certain speci?c
embodiments of the invention are set forth for
purposes of illustration.
In the drawing:
Fig. l is a side elevation, partly in section, of
a ?ling device embodying the present invention.
Fig. 2 is a front elevation thereof.
Fig. 3 is a horizontal section taken along the
line 3--3 of Fig. 1.
Referring to the drawing more in detail, in
the embodiment shown in Figs. 1 to 3 the inven
tion is shown as comprising a base ill carrying a
bracket II to which a housing I2 is secured. The
housing I2 is provided with side members iii in
which a rod [4 is pivotally held, as by screws 15.
A ?ling pin [6 is secured in the rod l4 and
extends upwardly through an aperture I‘! in the
housing H. A spring I8 is disposed around the
vertical position, so as to form a guard for the
purpose speci?ed. A clip 26 is pivotally attached
to a hinge 21 which is secured to the bracket H.
This clip 26 extends outwardly from the bracket
II over the point of the pin I6 and normally
bears against the end of the ?ange 25, in which
position it is held by a spring 30. The clip 25
extends outwardly past the ?ange 25 and is pro
vided with a ?ange 3| which is adapted to be
engaged by the ?nger when the clip- 26 is to be
depressed. The clip 26 is provided with an ap
erture 32 which is of suitable shape to permit
passage of the point 2! of the pin It when the
clip is depressed.
A sleeve 33 may also be provided on the pin it 15
for receiving the papers for ?ling and is adapted
to be removed with the papers to form a perma
nent ?le. The sleeve 33 is provided with a bot
tom flange 34 which prevents the papers from
falling off of the sleeve when the latter is re
moved from the pin [6.
In the operation of the above described de
20
Vice, when it is desired to apply a paper to the
?le, the edge of the paper is pushed over the
point 2| of the pin it and under the clip 26.
With the same motion the clip 26 is depressed
by engaging the same with the ?nger, thereby
causing the aperture 32 to extend downwardly
over the point 2| and to perforate the paper and
start the same down over the pin. The paper 30
may then be pushed down over the pin in the
usual manner.
It is to be noted that the ?le can be used as
conveniently as an unguarded ?le as no addi
tional motions are required in applying a paper 35
thereto. The hand, however, cannot come in
contact with the point of the ?ling pin. The
clip 26 serves the double purpose of guarding
the point of the pin and at the same time per
forating the paper and starting the same down
over the pin.
The papers can be removed together for perma
nent ?ling by sliding the sleeve 33 from the pin
rod [4 to normally hold the ?ling pin in vertical I6, the pin being bent outwardly as indicated in
45 position against the edge 20 of the aperture H. dotted lines in Fig. 1 for this purpose. It is to
