PICTURE-HANGER.

Specification of Letters atent.

Patented Aug. 3, 1915.

Application filed November 8, 1913. Serial No. 799,976.

To all whom t may concern:

` the county of Allen and State of Kansas,

have invented new and useful Improvements in Picture-Hangers, of which the following is a specification. y

This invention relates to picture hangers and has for its primary object the provision of a device of this character whereby the picture will be firmly supported in vertical position against the wall.

In carrying out my invention it is my purpose to provide mating fastening elements mounted respectively upon the frame and .the wall and cooperating to hold the frame in a true vertical position, and the provision of such elements which will facilitate the operation of hanging` the frame.

A further object of the invention is the provision of a means for effecting an operative application of the wall engaging elements and for preventing said elements from being injured during the attaching opera-tion.

lVith these and other obliects in view A which will appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the invention consists in the specific construction and combination of parts which will hereinafter be more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claim.

In the drawing forming a portion of this specification andpin which like numerals of reference indicate similar parts in the several views, Figure l is a fragmentary sectional View of the picture frame showing the same as supported upon the wall with my improved fastening device. Fig. 2 is a rear view of the frame showing the socket members secured thereto. Fig. 3 is a' detail per spective View of one of the socket members. Fig. el is a detail perspectve view of one of the ball members. Fig. 5 is a detail perspective view of the protector ring. Fig. 6 is a side elevation of one of the ball members with the protector ringappliedthereto. Fig. 7 is a. view of a modified form ofthe ball member. Fig. 8 is a sectional view through the socket member taken on line 8-8 of Fig. 3. Fig. 9 is a face view of the socket member.

Referring to the drawing by numerals, l

designates the picture frame into which the '65 Socket members 2 are fastened. Each of the socket members as shown comprises a screw threaded shank 3 formed at one end with a socket al which has its outer edge rolled. back to provide an annular hollow rim 5. The said rim is provided at diametrically opposite points with grooves ception of a screw driver bymeans of which the said socket members are screwed into the rear face of the picture'frame preferably one into each of Athe four corners thereof. Arranged within the sockets 4 and connected in any suitable manner to the opposite sides thereof, are oppositely bowed springs 7 which as shown in one embodiment of theinvention as ha ving their free ends extended through suitable openings in the sides of the sockets and bearing against the rim 5 of the rolled back edge. These springs cooperate with the spherical head or ball 8 of the members 9 in a manner hereinafter describedv for the purpose of retaining the mating members operatively associated.

The members 9 are adapted to be driven into the wall at proper points so that the spherical heads or balls 8 thereofl will be rc-` ceived by the sockets 4. The spherical heads 8 are formed integrally with the heads l0 of the members 9 andconnected therewith by the reduced portion ll forming the neck 12. The heads l0 are adapted to lie flush with the wall while the sockets 4 are arranged to lie iiusli with the rear surface of the frame so that when the spherical heads of the members 9 are inserted within the sockets 4 the springs 7 snap into engage'- ment with the neck l2 rearwardly of the spherical head, thus providing a iirm connection between the parts whereby the picture frame is firmly supported in true vertical position against the wall. IVliile I prefer the members 9 being made in the form of a nail and adapted to be driven into the wall, the said members may be made in the form'of a screw as shown in Fig. 7 and in which case the spherical head o1' ball 8 of the said members is provided with a suitable groove 13 for the reception of a screw driver so that thesaid members may be screwed into the wall.

.Vith a view of protecting the spherical head or balls 8 from being ii ttened or otherwise injured while driving tie members into the wall, I provide a p otectorr ring 14 which is to be temporarily placed over the head or ball 8 of the members and bear against the head 15 thereof. After the member has been driven into the Wall the ring is then removed.

From the foregoing description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing it Willbe manifest that I have provided a device by means of which pictures are firmly supported' in true vertical position against the wall7 thus preventing anylmovement of the picture" upon the wall due to vibration of the latter under various conditions. lt.

will be further understood that the fastener mayl be made in different sizes to accommodate large and small picturesJ andthat ther` picture may be readily and quickly hung upon and removed Afrom the wall when desired. I

`While l have shown and described the preferred form of my invention, it is to be understood that I am not to be limited to the precise construction herein shown, as. various changes may be made within the scope of the appended claims Without sacri* y ficing any of the advantages of my invention. r

What l claim is 1n a picture hanger, a headed shank adapted to be fastened in the wall with its head lying iush therewith, a convex exten sion projecting centrally from said head and connected thereto by a reduced neck por-l LELA M. HOOK.
