MEANS FOR. DETACHABLY SECURING A PEN,
PENCIL, OR THE LIKE IN A POCKET
Alfred Henry Croxon, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Application March 24, 1937, Serial No. 132,717
2 Claims. (CI. 24—12)
“
This invention relates to means for detach
Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the device applied
ably securing a pen, pencil, or the like in a to a pocket;
pocket.
The means commonly used comprises a resil
ient prong secured to the pen extending substan
tially parallel to and longitudinally thereof, with
a ball or projection at the end adapted to engage
the pocket at the outside thereof when the pen
is inserted in the pocket. A clip of this type is
not entirely satisfactory, since in time the prong
loses its resilience so: that it does not engage the
pocket securely, and moreover the end of the
prong may be accidentally caught by a scarf or
in some other Way so that the prong is disen
15 gaged from the pocket. Moreover, the friction
of the prong on the pocket tends to rub and
wear out the material of the pocket.
The object of my invention is to devise a means
for attaching a pen or the like in a pocket in
20 such a way that it will not become accidentally
disengaged and so that it will not damage the
material of the pocket.
I have achieved this object by providing inter
engageable disconnectible parts, one of which is
carried by or adapted to be carried by the pen
and the other of which is carried by or adapted
to be carried by the pocket.
More speci?cally, I
provide means for detachably securing a pen,
30
\ pencil or the like to a pocket, comprising a prong
one end of which is adapted to be secured to a
pen and to extend longitudinally thereof with
the free end of the prong and the greater part of
the length of the prong normally spaced from
the pen; an anchoring member adapted to be de
03 CA tachably connected to the outside of the pocket
below the opening thereof; and means for de
tachably securing the clip to the anchoring mem
ber when the pen is in the pocket, comprising
positively co-operating disconnectible male and
40
female parts, one of said parts being located on
the prong adjacent the free end thereof and
the other part being located on the anchoring
member.
It should be understood that in referring to
a pen, I am contemplating objects of a like na
ture such as pencils, and instruments of various
kinds which are commonly kept in pockets and
secured therein by clips. In referring to a pock
et, the pocket may be a pocket in .a garment, a
purse or bag, in a special container made for the
purpose, or otherwise.
i
The invention is hereinafter more particu
larly described and is illustrated in the accom
56 panying drawing in which
Fig. 2 is a plan View of the anchoring device;
Fig. 3 a plan view of a modi?cation of the an
choring device; and
5
Fig. 4 a side elevation of a clip taken at right
angles to the view in Fig. l, with part of the
fastener in section, the fastener being shown as
disconnected.
,
In the drawing like numerals refer to similar 10
parts in the different ?gures.
In Fig. 1, numeral H! represents the body of a
garment or other object to which the pocket is
secured, and is represented as being constructed
of fabric, although it may be made of any suit- 15
able material. The pocket is formed by the ap
plication of a piece of material H to the body
material It, although it is obvious that a pocket
may be formed in any known manner Without
affecting the essential features of this invention. 20
Secured to a pen, pencil or the like I2 is a clip
I3 which comprises a ring M extending around
the pen [2, and a prong l5 which extends longi
tudinally of the pen l2 and spaced from and sub
stantially parallel to the pen I2 throughout the 25
greater part of its length. The clip as described
is similar to the clips commonly in use, and it
is commonly made of metal, the prong l5 being
resilient, although this is not necessarily so with
applicant’s invention. The prong in accordance 30
with the applicant’s invention is spaced from
the body of the pen sufficiently to enable it to
pass over the outside of the pocket ll without
rubbing against it.
Adjacent the end of the prong is secured a 35
male part 16 of a detachable connecting means
commonly called a dome fastener.
An anchoring member I1 is secured by means
hereinafter described to the outside of the pock
et. This anchoring member is provided with one 40
or more female fastening parts I8, adapted to re
ceive the male part l6 and provided with a spring
I8a or other resilient engaging means whereby
the clip 13 may be positively but detachably se
cured to the said anchoring member 11. It will 45
be observed that the parts positively co-act, and
it is not necessary for spring pressure to be ex
erted by the prong I 5 to provide frictional en
gagement between the prong, the pen and the
50
pocket as is common in the art.
It will be obvious that the anchoring means I’!
may be provided with any desired number of co
operating parts for detachable connection with
one or a plurality of clips, so that for example, a 55
2
2,122,455
pen, pencil and/or other instrument may be kept
in one pocket and detachably secured thereto.
The anchoring member I‘! is preferably in the
form of a metal bar, which may be plated or suit
ably ornamented if desired, and which may be
secured to the pocket by various means, prefer
ably detachable, so that it may be transferred
from one pocket to another, for example when
one garment is discarded and it is desired to use
10 the device in connection with another garment.
In Fig. 2 I show means for detachably securing
the anchoring device IT to the outside of the
pocket comprising a pivoted pin IS, the end of
which is adapted to be secured in a safety catch
15
or look 20.
1
In Fig. 3 I show a bendable tang 2| at each
end of the anchoring member, which tangs are
adapted to» pierce the material of which the pock
, et is made and to be bent over toretain the an
20 choring device or member I‘! in position on the
pocket.
It will be understood that the anchor ll will
usually be secured to the outside of the pocket
2,5
below the upper ‘edge thereof a distance less than
the length of the prong 15, to enable the prong
to be readily attached to the anchoring member
H.
To facilitate the separation of the two parts
of
the detachable connecting means, I have pro
30
' vided a lug or extension 22 which extends to or
slightly beyond the edge of the anchoring mem
ber I‘! to permit the insertion of the user’s ?n
ger nail between the two parts to pry them
apart.
It will be seen from the above that I have de
vised a simple and practical means for detach
ably securing a pen or the like in a pocket, and
have attained the object of my invention.
What I claim as my invention is:
1. Means for detachably securing a pen, pen
cil, or the like to a pocket, comprising a clip, hav
ing a pen engaging part and a prong so con 1O
structed and relatively arranged that when the
pen engaging part is secured to the pen the prong
will extend longitudinally thereof with its free
end of the prong and the greater part of its
length normally spaced from the pen a prede 15
termined distance at least equal to the width of
the material of the pocket; an anchoring mem
ber; means for detachably connecting the an
choring member to the outside of the pocket be
low the opening thereof; and means for detach 20
ably securing the clip to the anchoring member
when the pen is in the pocket, comprising posi
tively co-operating disconneotible male and fe
male parts, one of said parts being located on the
prong adjacent the free end thereof and the
other part being located on the anchoring mem
ber.
2. The combination as set forth in claim 1 in
cluding a lug on the prong adjacent the end
thereof which may be engaged by the user’s ?n
ger to separate the cooperating male and female
parts.
