1 Claim. (Cl. 120—49)
This invention relates'to fountain pens, and The bar 20 is provided with parallel strips 2I
particularly to the closing up or capping features
of pocket fountain pens.
The principal object of the invention is to pro
5 vide a simpli?ed, conveniently and economically
manufacturable, economically salable, and im
proved fountain pen and capping device there
for. wherein the cap will not be removable from
the pen-barrel, and which capping device will
10 be e?icient, reliable, strong, and durable.
Other objects and advantages will hereinafter
In the accompanying drawing
Fig. 1 is a longitudinal cross-sectional eleva
1 GI tion of the fountain pen of this invention.
Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. l, but show
ing the fountain pen as it appears with its cap
drawn away when the pen is in operative condi-;''
Figs. 3, 4 show a front and side elevation re
spectively of the pen-barrel, as it appears be
fore assemblage of the pen during manufacture.
Figs. 5 to 10 show details of the fountain open
capping device.
Figs. 11, 12 show modi?cations of the inven
The cap I of the fountain pen 2, Figs. 1, 6. is
completely open at it's terminal 3, and has a
cylinder 4 ?xed therewithin provided with a pair
30 of‘opposite parallel elongated slots 5, Figs. 7, 8,
the cap being provided ‘with the usual pocket clip
6, as shown. On the periphery of the ink car
rying barrel ‘I are formed guiding lugs 8 for
the slots 5, whereby the cap I may be slid over
35 the barrel forwardly to the upward position
shown in Fig. l or rearwardly backwardly to the
lowered position shown in Fig. 2.
The barrel
1‘ is also provided with a slotted depression 9,
Figs. 3, 4, in which is inlaid a T-shaped metallic
40 lug III consisting of a vertical strip II and cross
. piece I2. Within cap‘ I, at its terminal 3, is
located a collar I3, Figs. 6, 10, which is held in
place by a pair of pins ?xed to the cap passing
slidingly through slightly elongated holes invsaid
45 collar, as illustrated, the holes I5 permitting a
small limited vertical sliding movement
collar I3, which is thus held and guided
pins I4. ‘To the collar I3 is held a lid I6
terminal of cap I by means of a hinge II,
of the
by the
for the
50 by the open terminal of the cap may be thus
opened and closed, and to a lug I8 depending
from the underside of said lid is in turn hinged
at I! a bar 20, Figs. 9, 10, which is thus sus
pended from the lid I6 and is located between
55 the barrel ‘I and the cap I, as shown in Fig. 2.
forming a slot 22, spri-ngy lateral bends 23 in
the said strips, and laterally projecting termi
nals 24, as illustrated in Fig.‘ 10. In the as
semblage of these parts, the strip II lies between 5
the strips 2| for lateral guidance and direction
ing of the bar 20, the projecting terminals 24
are engageable with the ?xed cross-pieces I2
during completion of the upward forward move
ment of the cap, and the springy bends 23 a lo
tensional frictional engagement of the bar 20 with
the surface of depression 9 of barrel ‘I as‘. well as
the interior surface of the ?xed sleeve 4 of
cap I.
During non-use the fountain pen and ‘all its 15
parts appear as 'shown in Fig. 1, with the lid I6
closing up the cap I. When it is desiredeto use
the pen, the cap I is drawn dow 'wa'rdly rear- .
wardly, and thereupon the bar 20 i"'tially actu
ates the lid IE to open up to the position shown 20
in Fig. 2 about its hinge II. This opening ac
tion is automatically performed by the bar 20
pressing upwardly upon hinge I9 and lug I8,
since said bar is" initially relatively at rest, due
to its frictional and tensional engagement with 25
the barrel ‘I and cap I, the elongated holes I5
simultaneously permitting limited movement of
the collar I3 and hinge II required during swing
ing action of the cover I6. During downward
movement of the, cap I to the ultimate position 30
shown in Fig. 2 the bar 20 is carried along there
with and the lid I6 is disposed to the location ,
shown, exposing the pen point ‘Ia for operating
writing requirements. When it is desired to close
the pen, the cap I is slid forwardly upwardly, 35
carrying with it its dependent parts and lid I6,
and just before completing its stroke the lid I6
is swung backwardly and caused to ?rmly, lock
ingly, and e?iciently close the cap, as illustrated
in Fig. 1. This closing action of the lid is auto- 40
matically performed by the engagement of the
projections 24 of bar 20 with the transverse strip
I2, just prior to the completion of the upward
stroke of the cap I, which causes the bar 20 45
to pull the lid I6 and swing it to a locked closing
position over the terminal of cap I. _It will be
noted that due to the automatic opening and
.closing actions of the lid I5 there is precluded
any contact thereof with the pen point ‘Ia. l 50
If desired the pen barrel ‘I may be provided
with'a scab‘bard 30, to conceal the showing de
pression 9 when the fountain pen is in closed
state, as illustrated in Fig. 11.
According to the modification shown in Fig. 55
12, the ink carrying barrel 1 is provided with an
automatic magazine pencil device 3|.
Variations may be resorted to within the scope
of the invention, and portions of the improve
ments may be used without others.
Having thus described my invention,v I claim:—
A fountain pen having the combination with a
pen and an ink carrying barrel for said pen, of
a. cap for said parts including a sleeve over said
barrel being longitudinally slidable thereover
from a position of covering the pen to a rear
ward position to uncover said pen, a collar held
to said cap within its terminal. a lid hinged to
said collar to open and close the cap.-a bar hinged
to said cap lying longitudinally between the cap
and barrel and frictionally engaging the can
and barrel, said frictional engagement of the
bar causing it to open said lid upon initial rear
ward movement of said cap and to close said
lid upon termination of the forward movement
of the cap, and said collar being longitudinally
slidable in said terminal to facilitate the open- 10
ing and closing action of said lid.
