Door Or Window Jamb Patents (Class 232/42)
  • Patent number: 4066208
    Abstract: A newspaper holding receptacle is arranged to be disposed on the floor at or alongside the outside lower margin of a closed door of an apartment. The receptacle has a laterally disposed bracket so arranged that it can be attached to, and detached from, the lower end of the door readily while the door is open, but cannot be detached while the door is closed. The receptacle has a restricted entry opening through which a newspaper can be inserted easily while the receptacle is attached to the closed door, but cannot be withdrawn readily. The restriction of the entry passage is effected by an element which also functions for detachably connecting the bracket and receptacle in assembled relation.
