Abstract

A document holder is made of a flexible material such as vinyl. It has a generally flat tubular part, open at the top and bottom, that carries the document, and it has a strip part that forms the bottom of the holder and can be operated to lift the document partly out of the holder. The outer surface of the back of the tubular part is attached by an adhesive to a supporting wall of a component of a data processing system or the associated room. The strip part extends downward for a short distance and loops upward through the tube. The document is carried in the loop with the top of the document below the upper edge of the tube. A tab on the end of the strip extends out the top of the tube sufficiently to be grasped by a reader of the document, and the document is raised slightly out of the tube when the reader lifts the tab.

Holder for Document to Accompany Component of Data Processing System

      A document holder is made of a flexible material such as vinyl.
It has a generally flat tubular part, open at the top and bottom,
that carries the document, and it has a strip part that forms the
bottom of the holder and can be operated to lift the document partly
out of the holder.  The outer surface of the back of the tubular part
is attached by an adhesive to a supporting wall of a component of a
data processing system or the associated room.  The strip part
extends downward for a short distance and loops upward through the
tube.  The document is carried in the loop with the top of the
document below the upper edge of the tube.  A tab on the end of the
strip extends out the top of the tube sufficiently to be grasped by a
reader of the document, and the document is raised slightly out of
the tube when the reader lifts the tab.  The tab also prevents the
end of the strip from being pushed into the tube.  Inside the tube,
the strip part is interwoven with two pairs of horizontal slits
formed in the front of the tube to hold the strip close to the inside
surface of the tube front.
