WILLIAM H. GEBAUER, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI.
TOWEL-HOLDER.
Application filed .Tune 9, 1915.
TQ all whom t may concern,.-
Be it known that I, WILLIAM H. GEBAUER, a citizen of the United States, residing at St. Louis, in the State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvementsin Towel-Holders; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to improvements in towel holders.
One object of the invention is to provide a simple and novel device of this character adapted to be secured to the wall to receive a towel thereover and of such construction that the towel can be quickly and easily pulled down without danger of tearing the towel.
Another object is to provide a simple device of this character which will properly support a towel dropped thereover.
Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing.
In the drawing, Figure 1 is a side elevation of myA improved towel holder, Fig. 2 is a top plan view, Fig. 3 is a side elevation showing the action of the device when a towel is being pulled therefrom.
Referring particularly to the accompanying drawing, 10 represents a piece of wire bent into a -substantially triangular form, one end being extended from the apex of the triangle in the form of a screw 11 which is adapted to be driven into the wall. A second piece of wire is doubled on itself to provide a pair of parallel arms 12, each of which is formed with a single coil turn 13. Pivotally disposedv through the coil turns 13 is the base portion of the triangular member 10. The outer or bight portion of the lastnamed member is bent upwardly into the semblance of a hook 14. The other ends of the arms 12 are directed inwardly toward each other, as shown at 15.
Engaged around the base portion of the Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 21, 1916.
serial No. 33,135.
triangular member 10, at a point between the arms 12 is a coil spring 16, one end being secured to one of the arms 12 of the member 10. It Will be noted that the portions 15 bear on the top of the member 10 so as to limit the upward movement of the hook member to a horizontal position. The spring 16 is so arranged that it bears upwardly on the arm 12 so as to hold the hook member which includes the arms 12 in a horizontal position. A towel can then be thrown over the hook in the same manner as over a nail driven in the wall. The upturned hook keeps the towel from sliding off, but when it is desired to remove the towel the same can be pulled straight down without danger of tearing the towel, the hook member swinging downwardly on the base portion of the triangular member against the tension of the spring. The towel will readily slide 0E from the end of the hook, and then resume its normal horizontal position under the influence of the spring.
What is claimed is:
A towel holder including a pair of cooperating wire members, one of said members consisting of a single length of wire bent to provide a triangular head and a securing portion, the apex of the triangle being arranged to lie close to a wall and the base of the triangle being arranged to lie parallel to the wall, the other member consisting of a single length of wire bent intermediate its ends into U-shape to form a supporting arm, the legs of the U being bent around the base of the triangle and extended thereover, the extremities of the wire being bent toward each other to lie in alinement across the triangle near its apex, and a spring wound around the base of the triangle and holding the outer end of the arm yieldably raised.
In testimony whereof, I aix my signature, in the presence of two witnesses.
WILLIAM H. GEBAUER.

HENRY J. SEHLUETER, J. I-I. TOENISKOETTER.
