Abstract

An improved index tab which comprises a rectangular portion which provides a space for the placement of labels or other indicia. Extending from adjacent corners along the longitudinal margin of the rectangular portion are upper and lower feet. The lower foot is semi-elliptical, having a linear edge parallel to the longitudinal margin of the rectangular portion. The upper foot extends outward from the longitudinal margin of the rectangular portion, curving slightly downward relative thereto. A slotted offset is disposed between the upper foot and the rectangular portion. Upper and lower feet are inserted into corresponding holes along the folded edge of an item having a folded edge. A slight downward pull on the rectangular portion locks the edge of the upper hole into the slotted offset, and a pull in the opposite direction allows removal of the index tab.
