v 'H. L. WEIGEL. DEVICE FOR HOLDING HUGS OR OTHER ARTICLES.
APPLICATlON FILED DEC. 14. 1914.

MOT/WW HERBERT L. WEIGEL,
o r BUEFAL 0,
NE'W YORK.
DEVICE FOR EOLDING BUGS OR ,ornaaanrronns.
Application filed December 14,1914.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that l, HERBERT L. WnieEL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Buffalo, in the county of Erie and {state of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Devices for Holding Hugs or other Articles, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a device for holding rugs, carpets and the like on a line during the process of heating or cleaning and one object thereof is to provide a simple article of this nature made from a single piece of material and one which will be simple and durable and cheap to manufacture.
Another object is to provide a device of the character stated which will securely hold a rug or carpet on a line and prevent the same from sagging or in any way pulling loose from the line.
With the above and other objects in view, the present invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully set forth, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims, it being understood that changes may be made in the form, proportion, size and minor details without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the in? vention.
Referring to the accompanying drawings illustrating my invention, and forming a part of this specification, and in which like letters of refernece indicate corresponding parts in each of the views: Figure 1 is a perspective view of the holder unapplied. Fig. 2 is an end view with the holder applied. Fig. 3 is a face view of the holder in the act of being applied. Fig. 4. is a face view of a pair of holders applied.
In the drawings wherein is illustrated a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 1 designates a sheet metal or other plate or the like which forms the body of the device. This body portion is provided at one end with a projection or lug 2 struck up from the material of the body and be ing preferably rectangular in shape. At the opposite end of the body portion 1 is formed a second projection or lug 3 also struck out of the said body portion, and being preferably triangular in shape. The projections 2 and 3 are preferably in horizontal alinement. Between the projections 2 and 3 is Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 23, 1915.
Serial -1\To. 877,187.
arranged a third projection or lug 4 also struck from the metal body and being preferably rectangular in shape, which projection 1s located nearer the projection 2 than the projection 3 and lying in a plane some what higher than the plane of the said projections 2 and 3.
The projections 2 and 3 are bent outward from the body portion and at a point intermediate their length bentdownward, while the projection 4 is bent outward from the body portion and then bent upward intermediate its length. By this construction three oppositely disposed wedge shaped grooves are provided, one by each projecilzilon, for the reception of a line, rope, or the As stated, the projection 3 is preferably triangular in shape whereby an incline 5 is provided along one edge thereof. By means of this inclined edge the rope or line can be easily inserted in the wedge shaped groove of the said projection.
The plate 1 is curved rearwardly a short distance along one longitudinal edge as shown at 6. This is to facilitate handling the device.
In the use of the device the carpet, rug or other material to be cleaned, beat or otherwise treated or manipulated, is first thrown over the line. Then the projection 2 of the plate 1 is clamped over the rug and I line as shown in Fig. 3. The plate is then given an upward movement until the projection 4 strikes the rope. Upon further upward movement of the plate, the rope will be bent around the projection 4 and securely wedged in the groove thereof. The rope will next come in contact with the inclined edge 5 of the projection 3 and will ride up the inclined edge until it snaps into place in the wedge shaped groove provided by projection 3. Another plate is then applied to the rug, or other article on the opposite side, as shown in Fig. 4:, and the same held firmly in position. By having the projection l nearer the projection 2 it will be seen that a greater leverage is obtained and consequently a greater tension can be put on the line, rope or the like, thereby holding the plate on the line securely.
What I claim is 1. An article of the class described comprising a sheet metal plate with three pr0- jections struck therefrom, one of the projections being located at one end of the .projections at each end being curved outwardly and downwardly, with the intermediate projection curved outwardly and upwardly, the aforesaid plate being turned rearwardly along one longitudinal edge to facilitate handling of'the said plate.
, 2. An article of the class described comprising a sheet metal plate with three projections struck up therefrom, one projection at one end of the plate and a second projection at the other end of the plate, said end projections being curved outwardly and downwardly and being in direct alinement, the third projection curved outwardly and upwardly and intermediate the two end projections but being closer to one than to the other and being situated above the two end projections, so as to engage and deflect the line and thereby hold the plate securely on the line.
3. An article of the class described comprising a sheet metal plate with three projections struck up therefrom, one projection at one end of the plate, and a second projection at the other end of the plate, with a third projection intermediate the two end projections, the projection at one end of the plate and the intermediate projection being rectangular in shape, and the projection at the opposite end of the plate being triangular in shape, thereby forming an incline along one edge of the said opposite end projection to facilitate the engagement of the plate with a line.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
