Acco Products, Inc., Long Island City, N. Y., a
corporation of New York
Application August 12, 1937, Serial No. 158,682
'7 Claims. (Cl. 40-102)
The invention relates to ?ling devices and more
particularly to readily operable means for de
tachab-ly clamping blue prints, maps, or the like
for vertical ?ling or display.
Drawings, such as are used by architects, build
ers and engineers, are not easily ?led and main
tained in accessible arrangement because com
monly such drawings are laid flat one upon an
other in drawers. The improved clamping means
10 is particularly adapted for use in vertical ?ling
cabinets of a type such as are shown in Patents
No. 1,867,158 and No. 1,867,159, both issued July
12, 1932, in which the drawings, wall paper or
fabric‘, are suspended in a readily accessible man
15 ner and from which they can quickly and con
that said arm may be mounted for swinging in
a horizontal plane.
In use, a plurality of said hanger arms pref
erably are pivotally mounted in a readily accessi
ble position upon a suitable support within a ?l 5
ing cabinet. To this end a mounting H is pro
vided, which, in its preferred form, comprises a
channel member having openings I8 in its flanges.
The journal l6 of the arm is positioned between
the mounting ?anges, in alignment with a pair 10
of the openings l8, and a pin I9 is inserted for
securing said arm to the mounting. In this
manner an independent ?ling unit supported upon
the arm |5 is provided which is swingable there

respectively, to receive a bearing pin 25. The

clamp is identical in all other respects with the

It is to be understood that various changes may
be made in the details of construction and ar

spirit of the invention or sacri?cing any of the
advantages thereof.

I claim:
1. In a ?ling and display device, a slidable
member having spaced pins to receive and support
sheets and like material, and hingedly mounted
clamps rotatably mounted on said member co
operating with said pins to retain said sheets
thereon.
2. In a ?ling and display device, a unit com
prising a supporting arm having means at one end
to provide a pivotal support therefor, a member
provided with a. downturned ?ange at its upper
edge adapted to engage the arm, a plurality of
pins on said member to receive and support sheets
or other material on said member, and yieldable
clamps mounted on said member co-operating one
with each pin to retain the sheets in place.
3. In a. ?ling and display device, a unit com
prising a supporting arm having means at one
end to provide a pivotal support therefor, a mem
ber slidable on said arm, a plurality of pins on
said member to receive and support sheets or
other material, clamps pivotally mounted on said
member each having an opening to receive the
free end of one pin to secure the sheets to said
member.
4. In a ?ling and display device, a unit com
prising a supporting arm having means at one
end to provide a pivotal support therefor, a mem
ber slidable on said arm, a plurality of pins on
said member to receive and support sheets or 5
other material, a plurality of brackets rotatably
mounted on said member, and a clamp element
mounted in each bracket to co-operate one with
each pin to retain the sheets in place.
5. A clamp comprising, in combination, a brack 10
et pivotally secured to a member, a pin on said
member, and a clamp element yieldably secured
to said bracket movable into engagement with
said pin.
6. A clamp comprising, in combination, a brack 15
et pivotally secured to a member, a pin on said
member adjacent said bracket, and a movable
clamp element mounted on said bracket apertured
to receive said pin.
'7. A clamp comprising, in combination, a brack
et pivotally secured at one end to a member,
spaced ears adjacent the other end of said brack
et, a bearing pin extending between said ears, a
clamp element having an opening at one end,
spaced ears on the other end of said element 25
journaled on said bearing pin, means between said
bracket and clamp element to urge the free end
of the clamp element toward the member, and a
