SELF WRINGING MOP. APPLIGATION FILED 001'. .14, 1913.

1, 1 26,887. Patented Feb. 2, 1915.

ATTORNEY "UNITED STATES OFFICE.

JAMES G. SCOTT, 0F TULSA, OKLAHOMA.

SELF-WRING-ING MOP.

Application filed October 14, 1913.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I. learns G. SCOTT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Tulsa, in. the county of Tulsa and State of Oklahoma, have invented a new and useful SelflVi-inging Mop, of which. the following is a specification.

- The invention relates to improvements in mops.

The object of the present invention is to improve the construction of mops, and to provide simple, practical and inexpensive mop of strong and durable construction, adapted to hold a mop cloth firmly in proper position for use, and capable of exerting the desired pressure on the cloth and of permitting the latter to be easily and quickly changed when desired, the holding means for the cloth being such as to obviate the necessity of employing endless bands or mop cloths.

A. further object of the invention is to enable the wringing loop to be arranged directly at the front end of and substantially in line with the handle, and to permit the mop cloth supporting means to swing out of the way of the loop when it is desired to wring the mop cloth.

Another object of the invention is to construct the mop cloth supporting means in the form of a pan, adapted to be conveniently employed for dipping water from a bucket, or other receptacle, for wetting a floor or other surface to be scrubbed or washed.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the construction and novel combination of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and pointed out in the claims here to appended; it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion, size and minor details of construction, within the scope ofthe claims, may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.

In the drawing: Figure 1 is a perspective view of a self wringing mop, constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the same. Fig. 3 is a plan view partly in section. Fig.

4 is a longitudinal sectional view of a portion of a mop having arched arms.

Like numerals of reference designate cor- Specification of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 795,110.

responding parts in all the figures of the drawing.

In the accompanying drawing in which is illustrated the preferred embodiment of the invention, 1 designates a handle provided in the underside with a longitudinal groove 2 for the reception of a mop wringing rod secured in the groove 2 of the handle by stapics 4, or other suitable fastening means, and provided at its upper or rear end with a crank 5 and having a knob or grip 6 at the outer'end of the crank. The mop handle 1. which is preferably constructed of wood, is reinforced at the upper or rear end by a metallic ferrule 7 adapted to prevent the handle from splitting. The rod 2 is provi ded at its front end with a loop 8 located at the lower or front end of the handle 1, and adapted to receive a mop cloth 9. The mop cloth 9, which consists of a strip of material. is passed through the loop 8 and is doubled to form two thicknesses, as shown, and it is arranged beneath a plate 10 of substantially oblong form. constructed of stout sheet metal and adapted to maintain the mop cloth in the spread condition and in proper position for use. The plate 10 is provided with side walls or flanges 11, and its outer or front end is bent upwardly to form a front inclined wall. or flange 12, which is rigidly connected with the adjacent portions of the side walls or flanges 1.1. The terminal portions of the sides of the folded mop cloth 9 are extended upwardly and inwardly over the front end wall or flange 12, and it is held firmly against the same and against the adjacent portion of the plate 10 by a clamp 13, constructed of rod metal or other suitable material and consisting of a crank-bend, terminal pivots 14 and 15 and a handle 16. extending from one of the pivots. The pivots 1 1 and are mounted. in perforations of the side walls or flanges, and the crank bend, which extends entirely across the plate, is adapted to swing toward the end flange or wall 1.2 in moving to its engaging position, and it cooperates with the said end wall in holding the ends of the mop cloth. By clamping the ends of the mop cloth in this manner, it is unnecessary to sew the terminals of the cloth together, as is ordinarily done with mops of this character, and the mop cloth is adapted to be easily and quickly removed when desired. The handle 16 of the clamp is arranged at the outer faceoi one ofthe sidewalls or flanges and is adaptedto be swung'upw'ardly and downwardly to operate the clamp.

The side Walls or flanges 11iare1pivoted'at a point intermediate of the ends of the plate to the outer terminals of spaced arm"17 by rivets 18, or other suitable fastening devices, and the said arms 17 are provided *at their inner ends with transverse connecting portions 19 having shanks or attaching portions 20 located at opposite sidesof thelower end of the handle of the mop, and riveted or otherwise seemed to the same. The spaced arin s l'fljvhich are rigid with the mop hand;le "arer;'bent,at an intermediate point, the inner portions of-the arms being arranged at an obtus'e angle to'the handle and extending outwardly at an angle to the loop 8 thereby spacing the outerportions o f the arms upwardly from the plane of the said loop; 8 ;andproviding a space on the under edges of tli earn1s 1T to receive the inner portion of,the pivotplate 10, which inner portion is adapted to I swingjupwardly against the loweredges otthe outer portions of the: arms'to arrange the plate out of the way of the'loop'8 when it is'desired to twist the inop for-wringing or expelling the water therefrom. Instead of constructing the ar1ns;1 7 ofangula1' -fo1 -'m,ithey may becurved or archedjas shown at17 inFig. 4 of the drawingto provide the said spaceto arrange them and the pivot, plate clear of the loop 8. This [construction ,enables" the loop 8-;to be arranged direc ly t the'lower i hs ha dl 'WhQl t b iofithe ay whentheginopis in use, and when th e plate; is swung into -al;i 1 1en1entf vith{ the outer p ti n Qft js ms i h a h-Tmv t d. betwpenrthe side walls or flanges and brace thesa'd plate and prevent the same froinf twisting during the wringing operation. a.

The side Walls or flanges 11 and the front end wall orfiange12','besides cooperating with the arm 17 and the clamp 13, are'adapte'd to form a pan or receptacle to enable water to be dipped from a pail or other receptacle for Wetting a floor or other surface. The mop is adapted for scrubbing, polishing fleors and for washing woodwork and dusting :wallsandthe like, and a mop or polishing cloth for any particular purpose may be readily ,appliedto the mop.-
