Abstract: A catching device (1), a grip (7), a flexible slide plate (4) for closing the catching opening (6) and an operating button (5) for sliding the flexible slide plate constitute the catching device. The grip part of the grip casing is narrower than the catching casing, so that the flexible slide plate comprises a narrow sliding portion (4b) and a wide closing portion (4a) and correspondingly the grip has a widened portion (7a) and a narrower grip portion (7b). The catching device with a guide plate (11) shaped onto its rear wall is attached to the end wall (14) of the vertically divided grip by means of a clamping holder (10). The individual components of the device are provided with a system of guide elements integrated into the same, mainly holding-down strips on the operating button, lateral guide strips (22) in the narrow grip portion, the guide in the reversal area of the flexible slide plate on the bevel (7c) of the grip on guide ribs (24), guide strips (25) and guide plates (11), as well as on guide edges (26) and guide noses (27) on the catching opening.
