' This, invention relates to key cases and has for
one ofv its objects the provision of such a case
wherein the keys are supportedupo‘n a plate, said
plate‘ being manually slidable in said case in or
der‘that the keys may be readily available for
use upon sliding the said plate to a pre-deter
mined position.
Another object of the invention is to provide
a case of this nature which may be kept in a
woman’s purse or in a man’s pocket and in which 10
the key supporting plate is so maintained in place
that it will not slide out of closed position in the
case by itself due to jar or the like.
‘
A further object of the invention is to provide
means to prevent accidental disconnection be 15
tween the keyv carrying plate and case,
Still another object of the invention is to pro
vide a key case wherein the key supporting plate

the plate may be provided at either one or both
sides thereof. In the form illustrated such lim
iting means are shown at one side only.‘
