Abstract: A pocket clip stamped from metal strip material, fastened at its one end to the tubular part of a writing instrument and at its other end resiliently biased into contact with the tubular part, has at its fastening end two bent-back, tab-like material sections which reach through an opening into the interior of the tubular part. The tab-like material sections are curved at their free end portions situated inside of the tubular part, in a plane situated at right angles to the longitudinal central axis of the tubular part, with their concave sides facing one another, while their curved end portions engage with bias a locking component that is circular is cross section and is inserted from the open end into the tubular part. In an intermediate area still within the tubular part there is provided an open-ended slot in each of the tab-like material sections, enabling the curved end portions of the tab-like material sections to flex resiliently within the tubular part.
Abstract: Pocket clip for writing instruments, such as ball-point pens, fountain pen caps, turning or push-button automatic pencils and the like, having an elongated clip facing which is disposed on an elongated resilient tongue of a clasp made of spring-elastic strip material, which can be fastened to the writing instrument. The clip facing is a piece stamped from thin metal strip material and formed into a hollow body which is partially open on its back facing the writing instrument, and the elongated tongue is snapped into it.
Abstract: A pocket clip made by stamping in one piece from spring metal, which is securely attached to a metal writing instrument, such as a fountain pen or ball point pen simply by pushing it, manually or by machine, into an opening provided in the cap or barrel of the writing instrument, whereupon the clip automatically locks itself onto projections extending from the sides of the opening.
