Description:

BACKGROUND

This disclosure relates generally to a money and card clip system and method.

U.S. Patent Application Number US 2007/0057004 A1 filed by Mr. Walt Butler et al. discloses a “Card Carrying Apparatus with Cell Phone Cradle Attachment”. Butler discloses a portable object holder, comprising: a first receptacle having a base, a front cradle portion and a rear face, the front cradle portion sized to receive and retain a least a portion of a handheld electronic device; and a second receptacle having an open end, a base, opposing sides, a front face and a rear face, the front face of the second receptacle affixed to the rear face of the first receptacle, the second receptacle sized to receive and retain one or more objects. Butler, however, leaves much to be improved. First, Butler's portable object holder is bulky having two receptacles, the combination of which means that said portable object holder is likely too large to fit in a user's pockets without a bulge therein. Further, said receptacles are disclosed as receiving said objects and electronic device in a top loading (holster style configuration); therefore, said portable object holder is best used when maintained in an upright position so as to prevent its contents from sliding out of said portable object holder. Next, Walt does not disclose a means of affixing said portable object holder to said electronic device so as to secure said portable object holder (along with objects carried therein) to said electronic device; thus, a user lacks the convenience of consolidating said electronic device with said objects to be carried therewith.

In one prior embodiment, a money clip comprises a base, two side portions, a stop, and a partial enclosure; wherein, said base comprises a top, a bottom, a first side, and a second side; said first side portion is connected to said first side; said second side portion is connected to said second side; said stop is connected to said first end; said partial enclosure comprises the space between said base, said side portions, and said stop; and said partial enclosure is capable of holding an object. Said money clip is well known and available in many variations from many different vendors. In one embodiment, said money clip can further comprise said side portions tapering inward as from said second end to said first end of said base. In another embodiment, said partial enclosure can instead comprise a front portion attached to said first end of said base and wrapping around and substantially parallel with said base; whereby, said partial enclosure is capable of holding said object by a tension between said base and said front portion upon said object. These, and other, embodiments of said money clip are commonly carried in a pocket by users as a means of consolidating said objects (such as paper currency, credit cards, government identification, and other paper items). However, said money clip does not accommodate modern users of a mobile media device (such as mobile phones, media players, portable game machines, and the like). First, a user of said money clip will commonly carry said money clip in the same pocket as said mobile media device; thereby, said user risks scratching a portion of said mobile media device by pressing a portion of said money clip against a portion of said mobile media device vulnerable to scratching. Further, users of said money clip must be cognizant of where said money clip is located in addition to said mobile media device rather than consolidating both devices in one place.

Accordingly, a money and card clip system and method would be advantageous.

A money and card clip system and method is disclosed. First, a clip system is disclosed comprising a clip and one or more attaching means. Said clip (having a first end, a second end, a first side, a second side, a front, a back, a height, width, and a depth) comprises a partial enclosure. Said attaching means is capable of attaching said clip to a mobile media device having a face and a back. Said partial enclosure is capable of receiving one or more clip objects. Next, a clipping method is disclosed. Said clipping method comprising: attaching a clip, having a partial enclosure, to a mobile media device with one or more adhesive strips; inserting one or more clip objects into said partial enclosure; and holding said clip objects in said partial enclosure. Finally, a clip system is disclosed. Said clip system comprising a clip comprising a case and a partial enclosure. Said partial enclosure is capable of receiving one or more clip objects by inserting said clip objects into said partial enclosure and holding said clip objects in partial enclosure.
