Abstract

While the standard design for a belt clip securely fastens a pager to a belt or the waistband of clothing, it is often the case that this design is inadequate. The cur- rent "open-ended" clip does not fasten securely to items which contain a shoulder strap or handles.

Belt and Purse Clip For A Paging Receiver

by Timothy Dimacchia, Neil Gibson and Mark Wickham

  While the standard design for a belt clip securely fastens a pager to a belt or the waistband of clothing, it is often the case that this design is inadequate. The cur- rent "open-ended" clip does not fasten securely to items which contain a shoulder strap or handles.

  By incorporating a "closed-ended" clasp into a belt clip design, a pager can be secured to a purse strap, briefcase handle or similar item without the fear of the

pager becoming detached. The pager will remain securely attached until the latching mechanism is disengaged.

  This spring activated belt and purse clip is opened by depressing the clasp button on the side. This disen- gages the latch and the clasp springs open. At this point a purse strap or similar item can be positioned in the clasp and secured by depressing the top of the clasp and engaging the latch.
