Application March 25, 1957, Serial No. 648,192

3 Claims. (Cl. 35--55) This invention relates to display devices and more particularly to an assembly providing detachable connecting means between a textile swatch and a binder for textile swatch. An example of an assembly of swatch, binder and connecting means is disclosed in the application for patent Serial No. 351,229, filed August 29, 1955, Patent No. 2,786,281, dated March 26, 1957.

An important object of the herein-disclosed invention is to provide connecting means for a binder and a swatch of textile samples which are connected together, may be readily detached from the binder or carrier of the assembly or readily connected therewith.

An additional important object is to provide connecting means to connect together a plurality of samples into a swatch and to detachably connect the swatch with a binder or carrier.

Still another important object is to provide connecting means to detachably connect a swatch to a binder or carrier, with the means comprising inexpensive but positive actuating parts.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the following detailed description of the invention, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, forming portions of this disclosure, and in which drawings:

Figure 1 is a fragmentary horizontal longitudinal sectional view of a portion of a binder assembly, disclosing connecting means.

Figure 2 is a fragmentary vertical transverse sectional view substantially on the line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a plan view of a blank forming a part of the connecting means of Figures 1 and 2 but on an enlarged scale.

Figure 4 is a plan view of another part of the connecting means of Figures 1 and 2 but on an enlarged scale.

Figure 5 is a rear elevational view of the connecting means of Figures 1 to 4 inclusive.

Figure 6 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view, on an enlarged scale, through the transverse center of the connecting means of Figures 3 to 5.

In the drawings, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of the invention and wherein similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the letter A designates the binder assembly; B, the binder or carrier portion thereof; C, swatch for use with the binder assembly; D, samples making up a swatch C; and E, connecting means securing together samples D to form swatch C and detachably securing the swatch C to the binder or carrier portion B.

The binder or carrier B of the binder assembly A includes post means, shown by way of example in Fig. 1 as two spaced-apart axially parallel posts 26 of conventional telescopic formation extending from a support as a conventional cover portion 27.

The swatch C comprises a plurality of samples D which ice support portion 70, slide 71 and means 72 to attach 1 outs 79 and 80 so that each two of them will align when samples D to the slide carrier and support portion 70.

The slide carrier and support portion 70 may be formed from a sheet of bendable and readily cut or punched and scored material such as cardboard, heavy paper, hardened plastic material or the like. with substantially parallel side edges and 76 and substantially parallel side edges 78, the sheet may be scored longitudinally to provide a weakened fold line 77 and two portions and 86 of equal size. Each end edge portion may be provided with spaced-apart preferably arcuate cut the sheet is folded on the fold line 77. Furthermore, the sheet is provided with a pair of spaced-apart slots 81 extending over both sides of the fold line 77. There are also provided cuts 82, 83 and 84 in one half of the sheet (as the portion 86) to one side of the fold line 77 with the elongated cut 84 parallel to and spaced from the fold line, and the lines 82 and 83 being short lines normal to and joining the cut 84. When folded over on the fold line 77, the sheet, prepared as above, provides a threewalled slide carrier and support portion 70, with the main walls being the portion 85 and the portion 86 minus the tab or flap 87 defined in part by the cuts 82, 33 and 84, which provide the third wall as will be subsequently explained, with the sheet at the fold line forming the top of the slide carrier and support portion and the edges 75 and 76 forming the bottom edges of the same.

The slide 71 is an elongated strip or body 90 of fairly rigid material as steel or hardened plastic for example, provided with a pair of space-apart bayonet slots 91 extending from one edge 92 and with their inner ends preferably rounded as at 93 and spaced apart a distance equal to the distance at which the slots 80 are spaced apart. The slide 71 is adapted to be slid longitudinally of and within the folded over support portion 70 with the edge 94 of the slide resting upon the shoulder formed by that part of the portion 86 at its juncture with the tab or flap 87 with the latter underneath the slide, as is clear in Figures 5 and 6, and the lower portion of the slide slidable through the cuts 82 and 83.

The means 72 to attach the samples D to the slide carrier and support portion 70 may be conventional rivets.

Since the material of the slide carrier and support portion 70 is flexible or springy, the tab or flap 87 will tend to bear against one face of the slide body 90 to provide some frictional resistance, which is desirable. This will be true, even if there are a number of samples D carried by the portion 70.

It may be appreciated that the connecting means E carrying a swatch C of samples may be detachably secured to suitable supports, such as projections, akin to binder posts, permanently or removably secured to a suitable surface, such as a wall. Even if such projections are joined by a bight, the connecting means B will enable the swatch to be secured to or removed from such a structure, as is apparent.

Various changes may be made to the size, shape and arrangement of parts of the invention herein shown, without departing from the spirit of the invention or {scope of the claims.

What is claimed is:

1. In combination with a post binder and a plurality of textile samples, connecting means securing together said samples to form a swatch and detachably securing the swatch of samples to the posts of said post binder, said Patented Sept. 22, 1959,,

With the sheet rectangular,

3 means including two elongated sheet portions in face-toface relationship, with each sheet portion having a pair of spaced-apart parallel transversely extending post accommodating slots extending into said sheet portion and opening, at one end of said slots, at a longitudinal edge of each sheet portion, and one sheet portion having a flap disposed closely adjacent said slots, with the juncture of said flap and said one sheet portion forming a shoulder paralleling said longitudinal edge, an elongated slide disposed between said sheet portions, said slide having a pair of post accommodating bayonet slots extending from one longitudinal edge thereof, adapted to register with the first named slots upon sliding of said slide, said slide having a second longitudinal edge paralleling the first-named longitudinal edge thereof, with the second-named longitudinal edge of said slide disposed upon and slidable along said shoulder, and means extending through said sheet portions and samples securing said samples to said sheet portions, with parts of said sheet portions in frictional contact with said slide.

2. The combination according to claim 1 characterized in that said flap extends inwardly of the inner face of said one of said sheet portions, and said slide, whereby said flap is between said slide and the other of said sheet {portions and bears against said slide.

3. The combination according to claim 1 characterized in that said sheet portions are of springy material.
