Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2004052658A1] The invention provides combined document binder and paper punch, comprising a stiff-cover document binder 12, a base member 14 rigidly attached to the binder 12, a plurality of spaced-apart document-retaining axially movable prongs 18 at least indirectly supported by the base member 14, a plurality of spaced-apart curved prongs 22 each having a first end 24 hinged 28 proximate to the base member 14, and a second end 26 adapted to be brought into register and to align with an upper end of an adjacent axially movable prong 18, a plurality of spaced-apart apertures 30 provided in the base member 14, a plurality of axially movable paper punches 32, each having a cutting lower end 34 and arranged to punch a hole in a paper document 44 in combination with the apertures 30, and a mechanism 38 and operating handle 40 for operating and displacing at least the curved prongs 22, the arrangement being such that the curved prongs 22 are displaceable between an open position allowing the introduction of documents 44 onto either pair of prongs 18, 22, and intermediate position contacting the axially movable prongs 18, and a fully closed position pressing the axially movable prongs 18 to a downward position, and wherein the axially movable paper punches 32 are provided with an upper end 46 normally in contact with lower ends 48 of the axially movable prongs 18, the paper punches 32 being positioned to enter the apertures 30 when the axially movable prongs 18 are pressed into the downward position to punch a plurality of holes in a document 44 previously inserted between the paper punches 32 and the base member 14.
