Description

The invention relates to a device for aligning and Set in a mutual horizontal or vertical distance to be certain Fastening points of nails, pens and hooks as well for marking fastening points for wall panels and Installation parts in residential construction.

The hanging of pictures, which is not with a single central nail or hook is done but over two spaced pins or nails and the like difficult and rarely succeed. The Set or align the two horizontally Fasteners can usually not by measuring the Distances to the floor or ceiling take place, since often both are not or not sufficiently horizontally aligned. in the Another complicating factor is that at the same time establishing a common horizontal line too the distance must be measured. A spirit level, like it is used for example by construction workers only helpful to a limited extent because it is hardly possible without the help of a second person on the one hand To keep the level horizontal and on the other hand that Hammering fasteners into the wall or if there is is a screw. The attachment of pencil lines or the like on plastered walls neither desirable nor aesthetically wearable. Also marking the fastening points of wall panels or of built-in parts in residential construction such as furniture, Kitchen installations etc. is with a normal spirit level often awkward and need to be accurate sideways To be able to mark distances, pencil lines attached become. These can often no longer be removed later. Often, such are used instead of pencil markings coloring pens made during later Swipe through after a while.

The invention is based on the object To create device that the exact horizontal Hanging pictures, frames and the like as well as for horizontal or vertical marking of Fastening points for wall plates and built-in parts in Housing in a simple way.

This task is solved by the characteristics of the Claim 1.

The device according to the invention allows a single person to attach two spaced nails, pins and markings exactly at the same height, ie horizontally, and also at exactly the right mutual distance to a wall without the aid of a length measuring device. The device also makes it possible to apply nails which are very close to one another or, in the case of large images, those which are very far apart, at exactly the same height, ie horizontally, and at a precisely predetermined distance. The device is extremely inexpensive to manufacture and can therefore be purchased by anyone who occasionally hangs a picture and can also be operated without further instructions. The invention is explained in more detail with the aid of an illustrated embodiment. Show it:

The device 1 comprises a rod-shaped body 3 from with a substantially rectangular cross section at least one, but preferably two holes 5 the ends of the body 3. The at least one bore 5 lies on one as a fine scratch or as a line present line 7, which is parallel to the two edges 9 and 11 runs. A slot-shaped recess 13, which breaks through the body 3 also lies symmetrical to line 7. This slit-shaped, through the Recess 13 passing through body 3 can be in the essentially over the entire length of the body 3 extend or be interrupted in the central area to a reduction in the bending strength of the device 1 counteract. At one end is a dragonfly 15 used with which the device with respect to Horizontal can be aligned. The body is 13 preferably made of transparent, flex-resistant plastic manufactured.

The four longitudinal edges of the body 3 can on the four Corners have steps 17 and 19 that act as longitudinal guides serve for a runner or slide 21. The slide 21 has a u-shaped cross section. He can out made of clear plastic and with in the Steps 17, 19 engaging ribs 23 and 25 may be provided. These ribs 23, 25 are dimensioned such that the over the Surface of the body 3 coming to lie front panel 27th at a short distance from the surface of the body 3 lies and thus damage or contamination of the Surface excluded when moving the slider 21 is. A bore 29 is in the front plate 27 let in, which is aligned with the slot 13 in the body 3. Both the at least one bore 5 and the bore 29 in the slide 21 lies on one of the body 3 and in the front plate 27 inserted vertical guideline 31.33.

The operation of the device 1 according to the invention is explained in more detail with reference to FIG. 4:

  • (1) The device 3 is placed on the back of the picture or picture frame 35 to be hung and the first bore 5 in the body 3 is pushed over the hole 37 on the first suspension bracket 39. The bore 29 in the slider 21 is above the eyelet 41 in the second Centering bracket 43 centered.
  • (2) In the wall 45, a nail 47 is hammered in or markings are made at the desired height.
  • (3) The device is articulated on the nail 47 which is inserted into the bore 5 and rotated around the center of the nail 47 or a marking mandrel until the horizontal position is reached or displayed on the spirit level 15. Then the point of impact can be marked with a pencil directly with the second nail 49 or a marking mandrel.
  • (4) Now the device 1 is put aside and the second nail 49 (and also the first one, if only marked) is hammered in. This is now at exactly the same height h as the first nail 47, and consequently the image will be hanging on the wall in an exactly horizontal orientation.
  • It is also possible in the first bore 29 and in the second hole 5 to use a centering pin 51 or with which instead of a pencil, which is guided through holes 5 and 29, respectively Wall 45 the appropriate markings for turning in Nails 47, 49 can be attached.

    The device 101 according to the second embodiment of the The invention comprises two rod-shaped bodies 103, the Cross section of Figure 7 can be seen. The rod-shaped Bodies 103 can carry scales 104 which are engraved or by screen printing or another method have been applied. They preferably consist of a slot 113 spaced apart rod-shaped body 103 from a drawn aluminum hollow profile, the Surface was later anodized. In both rod-shaped bodies 103 insert holding elements on both sides 106 (see FIG. 8), which comprise two pins 108, the surface of which is roughened or provided with ribs and which after insertion into the cavity 110 of the rod-shaped body 103 fit snugly in this and be held. The holding body 106 on both sides hold the ends of the rod-shaped body 103 firmly and precisely align, have a conical bore 105 in the center on. Four further holes 112 are used, one from the Allocate 114 and 116 existing end cap 118 fasten. Part 114 is essentially rectangular and has a small bore 105, the comes to lie over the bore 105a and a larger one Recess 120, in which a dragonfly 115 is inserted can be. At the bottom of part 114 are not visible suppositories, which are intended in to engage corresponding bores 122 on part 116. The Part 116 is also substantially rectangular and has, opposite the recess 120, a Recess 120a. In addition, part 116 is on the side a frame 124 is formed, connected in the center thereof through webs 126 serving as crosshairs, a bore 128 is trained. Both bore 105 and Recess 120a and the bore 129 lie on one parallel to the edges of the rod-shaped bodies 103 lying line 107. The parts 114 and 116 can by Pressing rigidly connected to the holding body 106 become. They are preferably located in the end caps 118 inserted two dragonflies 115 at an angle of 90 °. This enables the user of the device, too Markings coming vertically one above the other to attach exactly.

    The two rod-shaped bodies 103 have trapezoidal beads 130 on both sides, which are arranged between the two steps 117 and 119. The inner contour of the slide 121 corresponds to the trapezoidal rib 130. Two elastic tabs 132 are formed in the center of the slide 121, which maintain the necessary frictional force between the slide 121 and the two rod-shaped bodies 103.
    The mode of operation of the second embodiment of the invention according to FIGS. 6 to 8 is the same as in the first embodiment.

    Of course, the device can not only Hanging pictures but just as beneficial for that Marking fixing points of built-in furniture and also aligning and attaching markings for the Laying ceramic and natural stone slabs along Walls.

    In a further embodiment of the invention according to FIG 9, especially for marking off-center marking The device 201 includes panels or pieces of furniture Joint 240. The joint 240 connects the ends of the rod-shaped body 203 'and allows the Device 201 at any angle alpha around axis A. to pivot. The one through the swiveled two Leg, consisting of the rod-shaped bodies 203 ', can be leveled with the Dragonfly 215 align. Preferably in this embodiment on both legs slide 221 with bores 229 attached to the two colliding walls to which the device 201 is applied, markings with specified distance to the corner and / or to a to be able to attach another point.
