PAPER CLIP
Roy H. Colomy, Springdale, Conn, assignor of
twenty-?ve percent to Carl W. Olson, Darien,
Conn.
Application October 11, 1935, Serial No. 44,621
5 Claims.
This invention relates to paper clips and has
for its primary object the provision of a device
of this character which may be placed on sheets
of paper in any direction, that is, so that any
portion of the perimeters of the clasping mem
bers may be employed to effect the initial place
ment of the clip on the paper sheet.
Another object of my invention is to provide a
10
paper clip which presents a particularly attrac
tive appearance by embodying a symmetrical de
sign of pleasing arrangement without detracting
from its intended function.
A further object of my invention is to provide
a clasp of novel form which is adapted to be
fabricated by the economical production meth
ods now employed in the manufacture of such
devices.
The invention will be fully and comprehensive
ly understood from a consideration of the fol
lowing detailed description when read in connec
tion with the accompanying drawing which forms
part of the application, with the understanding,
(01. 24—261)
form of clip made from a single piece of wire.
The numeral Hi indicates an outer circular loop,
from one end of which the wire is bent to form
a portion H disposed diametrically of the outer
loop. The wire, continuing from one end of the
portion I l, forms an inner loop G2, which is con
centric with the outer loop Hl. As shown in Fig.
3, the inner loop is offset from the plane of the
outer loop.
Attention is now directed to Figs. 4, 5 and 6 10
for a description of the second form of my paper
clip. In this form, which is also made from a
single piece of wire, the outer loop, indicated by
numeral i3, is oblong in outline and the inner
loop is of similar form. The connecting portion 15
i5 is disposed preferably diagonally of the inner
and outer loops and joins opposed corners of the
loops.
Reference is now directed to Figs. 7, 8 and 9,
illustrating the third form of my invention, in 20
which the outer and inner loops, l6 and l ‘i, re
spectively, are of diamond or lozenge shape and
however, that the improvement is capable of ex- ' are joined by the connecting portion l8, which
tended application and is not con?ned to the
25 exact showing of the drawing nor to the precise
construction described and, therefore, such
changes and modi?cations may be made therein
as do not affect the spirit of the invention nor
exceed the scope thereof as expressed in the
30
appended claims.
In the drawing:
Fig. l is an elevational view illustrating the
use of the ?rst form of my paper clip in clasping
paper.

~
Figs. 2 and 3 are front and side elevational
views respectively of the ?rst form of my paper
clip.
Fig. 4 is an elevational view illustrating the
use of the second form of my paper clip.
Figs. 5 and 6 are front and side elevational
40
views respectively of the second form of my paper
clip.
Fig. 7 is an elevational view illustrating the
use of the third form of my paper clip; and
Figs. 8 and 9 are front and side elevational
45
views respectively of the third form of my paper
clip.
My paper clip comprises, brie?y, a pair of
adjacent loops connected to each other diago
50 nally or across the opening bounded by the loops
and preferably formed of a continuous wire, the
said loops being, preferably, one within the other.
Referring to the accompanying drawing for a
detailed description thereof, and at ?rst to Figs.
55 1, 2 and 3, the latter ?gures illustrate a circular
is preferably arranged to join the loops at op
posed corners thereof, but may be arranged to 25
connect the loops at opposed sides. It is like
wise desirable that the connecting portion i8
intersect the common center of the loops.
While I have described the several forms of
my invention as comprising one loop within the
other, it will be apparent that the pair of loops
comprising my paper clip may be arranged so
that the ?rst loop is in substantial registry with
or superimposed upon the second loop.
With reference to the Figs. 1, 4 and '7, it will be 35
apparent that the placement of my paper clip
on a sheet of paper may be effected in any direc
tion in that the perimeters of the component
loops present a continuous clasp means; there
fore, the initial placement of the clip may be 40
effected at any portion of the perimeter with
equal facility.
What is claimed is:
i
1. A paper fastener comprising a single piece
of resilient wire bent in the form of a plurality
of loops arranged one within the other and the
intermediate portion of said wire forming a cross
bar extending across said loops whereby any por
tion of the fastener may be used for effecting
the initial placement of the fastener.
50
2. A paper fastener comprising a single piece
of resilient wire bent in the form of a plurality
of substantially rectangular loops arranged one
within the other and the intermediate portion of
said wire forming a cross bar extending dia- 55

metrically across said loops whereby any portion
of the fastener may be used for effecting the
initial placement of the fastener.
3. A paper fastener comprising a single piece
of resilient wire bent in the form of a plurality
of substantially diamond-shaped loops one with
in the other and the intermediate portion of said
wire forming a cross bar extending diametrically
across said loops whereby any portion of the
10 fastener may be used for effecting the initial
placement of the fastener.
v
4. A paper clip comprising a resilient wire bent
to form a pair of loops disposed closely adjacent
each other about a common axis normal to the
planes thereof and a connecting element ex
tending across said clip substantially through
said axis from a point on one of said loops to a
point on the other of said loops.
5. A paper clipv comprising a resilient wire
bent to form a pair of loops disposed closely ad
jacent each other about a common axis normal
to the planes thereof, one of said loops being of
substantially rectangular conformation, and a
connecting element extending across said clip 10
substantially through said axis from a corner
of said rectangular loop to a point on the other
of said loops.
