SECTION I - CLASS DEFINITION

The inventions included within this class are themselves specially adapted to be supported upon some person or object.

The carrying feature predominates. Lifters and grapples are excluded because the hoisting or lifting feature is considered to control.

The articles carried also affect the classification for the same reason. Holders for bouquets, tickets, and other small objects of personal wear or use are excluded because they are carried for the use only and not with the idea of transportation.

(1) Note. Vehicle attached carriers include receptacles attached for use during transportation as well as receptacles attached for transportation only.

SECTION II - LINES WITH OTHER CLASSES AND WITHIN THIS CLASS

See Class 182, Fire Escape, Ladder, or Scaffold, subclasses 3+, for body harness, per se, of general application, and see the notes under the definition of such subclass for other combinations utilizing body harness.

42Firearms,   for a portable firearm; i.e., one which is supported by hand when operated, such as a shoulder gun, pistol, toy firearm, or cane gun (except the automatic or explosive firearm, which is found in Class 89), also for a firearm combined with a cleaner, entrenching device, bayonet, and other cutters (including specifically a pistol-sword). See especially subclass 85 for the combination of a gun and gun trimming, subclass 86 for the combination of a gun and a bayonet, and subclasses 87+ for the combination of a gun and a magazine charger.

114Ships,   for a marine vehicle or accessory, such as a merchant vessel, warship, submarine, torpedo boat, etc., the spar, sail, or fitting specific thereto and not otherwise classifiable. See especially subclass 364 for an attachment to either an exposed portion of a boat deck or on or at the top of a boat side. For a boat having an article carrier, placement is in Class 114 if the boat structure is more than merely nominally recited in the claims.

190Trunks and Hand-Carried Luggage,   for an article of hand-carried luggage which is intended to be grasped by the hand. For the line between Class 224 and Class 190, the test to be used is: If one of the bearer"s hands must remain occupied in order to carry the luggage, it is proper for Class 190; if it is also intended to be simultaneously slung over the bearer"s shoulder (and is not carrying items of personal use, the subject matter of Class 150), it is proper for Class 224.

296Land Vehicles: Bodies and Tops,   for a device relating to that portion of a land vehicle, secured to the running-gear thereof, which operates as a receptacle or load carrier, together with the top or cover therefor. See especially subclasses 37.1+ for a land vehicle having a compartment or receiver formed or "built in" to the body or top of a vehicle for the storage or receipt of articles or debris.

The test to be used is: A bag having a strap or other means intended to support the bag on the bearer"s body while allowing the bearer"s hands to remain free. Any bag of this type is proper for Class 224 even if it also includes an element which optionally may be gripped by the bearer"s hand. If the bearer"s hand must remain occupied in order to carry the bag, it is proper for this class (383) even if it is also intended to be simultaneously slung over the bearer"s shoulder.
410Freight Accommodation on Freight Carrier,   for the generic class of accommodation of discrete units of freight which have been loaded on board a freight carrier for transportation.
