PICTURE-HANGER.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, BROOKE C. BAGBY a citizen of the United States, residing at Portsmouth, in the county of Norfolk and State of Virginia, have invented new and useful Improvements in Picture-Hangers, of which. the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a device which may be used to connect picture hooks with moldings or to remove the same therefrom.

The primary object of the invention is to provide a device of this character having gripping members between which may be received a picture hook and which are connected with one end of a handle which may be manipulated to engage the hook with the picture molding thus obviating the necessity of standing upon chairs, tables, or the like when connecting the hook with the picture molding. i

Another object of the invention is to provide a device of this character in which one of the gripping members is reduced for a portion of its length and offset with relation to the body of the member to form a hook which may be engaged with the wire on the picture to enable the picture to be raised by means of the device and the wire connected therewith disposed in the loop on the picture hook when connected with the picture molding.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a device of the class described with a pair of gripping members one of which is of less length than the other gripping member and has a curved end so arranged with relation to the other gripping member that it co-acts therewith in facilitating the insertion of the picture hook between said members.

With these and other objects in view, the invention resides in the novel combination and arrangement of parts which will be hereinafter described and particularly pointed out in the claims.

The preferred embodiment of the invention has been illustrated in the accompanying drawing, although no restriction is necessarily made to the precise details of con struction therein shown, as changes, alterations, and modifications within the scope of the claim may be resorted to when desired.

Like characters of reference denote corresponding parts throughout the several Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Feb. 27, 1917. Application filed April 22, 1916. Serial No. 92,908. I

ture hanger constructed in accordance with the invention and showing the same in a position to connect a picture hook with a strip of picture molding,

Fig. 2'isa face view of the device.

Fig. 3 is a side elevation partly in section, and

Fig. 4:13 a face view of the reverserside of L the device shown in Fig. 2 in the drawing.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, the numeral 1 designates a handle enlarged at one end to form a head 2, said head being tapered to provide oppositely inclined sides 3 and' l. Spaced openings 5 extend transversely through the head and open out through the sides 3 and 4.

A clamping member 6 which is'formed from resilient material is tapered for the greater portion of its length and provided near one end with spaced: openings 7 adapted to register with the openings 5 when said end is placed on the side 3 of the head. The other end of the clamping member 6 is slightly curved, as at 8, fora purpose which will hereinafter appear. a

A second clamping member 9 is formed from a strip of non-resilient material and is of greater length than the clamping member 6, said clamping member 9 having formed therein near one end spaced openings 10 adapted to register with the openings 5 in the head when said end is placed on the inclined side 4 of the head.

The portion of the clamping member 9 which extends beyond the curved end of the clamping member 6 is reduced, as at 11, and inclined and offset, as at 12, at right-angles to the body of the clamping member to provide a curved shoulder 13. The other end of the offset portion 12 is bent to extend beyond the ofi'set portion and to lie in a parallel plane with the body of the clamping member 9, said end being curved to co-act with the offset portion in providing a hook 14.

Bolts 15 pass through the openings in the clamping members and in-the head 2 thus removably connecting the clamping members with the head.

It will be noted that by inclining the sides 3 and 4: of the head, the free ends of the clamping members converge toward each other, so that a picture hook may be more effectually gripped therebetween than would be possible if the sides did not slant.

With reference to Fig. 3 in the drawing,

it will be seen that the curved end 8 on the clamping member 6 which is arranged below the shoulder 13 is adapted to co-act therewith in facilitating the insertion of the small end of the picture hook'between the clamp- 111g members.

When it is desired to use the device for connecting a picture hook with the bead on a picture molding, the small loop at one end of the hook is inserted between the clamping members with the large loop on the hook extending outwardly from the reduced portion on the clamping member 9. The handle 1 may now be manipulated to bring the large loop on the hook into engagement with the picture molding and then move downwardly sothat the hook which is frictionally held between the gripping members will be removed therefrom.

To remove the hook from the picture molding the handle is moved to a position in which the curved end of the gripping member 6 will contact with the small loop at one end of the hook and will be guided thereby between the hook and the picture molding as the handle is moved upwardly and the small end of the loop forced between the gripping members. When the hook has been received between the gripping members, the handle may be moved sufliciently far in an upwardly direction to release the hook from the molding at which time the handle may be lowered and the hook removed from the gripping members.

Copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the After the hook has been connected with the picture molding, the hook 14 on the member 9 may be engaged with the cord on the picture and the handle manipulated to deposit the cord in the loop on the hook, it of course, being understood that the hook can be used to remove the cord from the picture hook and that the shoulder 13 prevents casual displacement of the wire while connected with the hook.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new, is:

A device of the class described embodying a handle, provided with a head, a resilient clamping member secured to one of the faces of said head, a second non-resilient clamping member secured to the opposite face of said head of greater length than the first mentioned clamping member, the former and latter mentioned clamping members be ing arranged in spaced vertical relation one to the other, the second mentioned clamping member having an angular offset and in clined portion to receive thereon a picture wire, said offset portion being curved at its juncture with the clamping member to form a wire retaining shoulder, and a curved end of the resilient clamping plate disposed below said shoulder and co-acting therewith to direct a picture hook between said clamping plates.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
