Modular Card Holder Rack

Racks for holding punch cards at time clocks and the like often occupy excessive space, are unsightly and relatively expensive for their function.

Fig. 1 shows a card holder module 10 which may be manufactured as a single, inexpensive extrusion. Base 11 has a thin, slightly angled lip 12, a continuous bead 13 and a mating recess 14. Module 10 may thus be cut into sections of convenient length and inter-connected as shown by assembly 20, Fig. 2. Cards are inserted into the spaces 21 between adjacent lips 12. The entire assembly may be hung on a wall by holes 22 drilled through one of the modules 10.

These holes will be hidden when the modules are assembled. Base 11 may be hollowed out, if desired, to save weight and material.
