MERCHANDISE-DISPLAY RACK.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Oct. 8, 1918.

Application filed September 5, 1916. Serial No. 118,495.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, IsAAo UNGER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Iron Mountain, in the county of Dickinson and State of Michigan, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Merchandise-Display Racks, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates particularly to a merchandise display-rack, or machine, adapted for the display of rolls or spools of ribbon or other small articles of merchandise. More especially, the invention is applicable to rotary display-racks of the character set forth in the Crego Patent, No. 949,393, granted Feb. 15, 1910.

The primary object is to provide improved carrier-elements for a rotary display-rack of the character referred to, whereby the device is more readily adapted for spools of varying size, or to the display of various small articles.

The invention is illustrated in its preferred embodiment in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 represents a front elevational View of a machine constructed in accordance with this invention, one of the shaftbearings of the machine being shown in section; Fig. 2, a transverse vertical sectional view not showing all of the carrier-elements, however; Fig. 3, a perspective view of one of the carrier-elements and the rods associated therewith; and Fig. 4, a perspective view of a detachable shelf employed in connection with one or more of the carrier-elements. 1

In the construction illustrated, A represents a main frame comprising end-standards A and bolts or rods A connecting the base portions of said end-standards; B, a rotary carrier-frame comprising wheels B fixedly connected by a shaft B whose ends are journaled in the upper portions of the standards A and C, carrier-elements, suspended between the wheels B in such manner as to maintain a depending upright position during the rotation of the carrierframe.

The main frame A may be of any suitable construction, that illustrated being admirably adapted for the purpose.

The wheels, or end frames B are preferably provided with spiders fixedly secured to the central shaft B, the extremities of the shaft B being journaled for rotation in the upper ends of the standards A Each carrier-element C comprises a pair of hangers 1, one of which is suspended from each wheel B and three rods, 2, 3 and 4, connecting the hangers.

Each hanger 1 preferably comprises a sheet-metal stamping having a suspension shank 1 provided at the lower end with a vertical slot 1 and flanked at the lower end by arms 1 provided with horizontal slots 1 The upper end of the member 1 is olfset and provided with a key-hole slot 1 adapted for connection with a headed stud 5 carried by the rim portion of the wheel B The rods 2, .3 and 4 are adjustably connected with the slots 1", 1 by means of screws 1 By this construction, the rods 2 and 4 may be adjusted horizontally, that is, toward and away from each other, and the rod 3 may be adjusted vertically to carry spools of ribbon of different diameters, so that there will be no danger of the spool falling through between the rods in any instance.

Fig. 4 shows a shelf 6 equipped at its lateral edges with curved lugs or bearings 7 adapted to hook over the rods 2 and 4. The shelf 6 may be of any desired length, and any desired number of shelves may be applied to the carrier-elements. It will be observed that the hooks 7 are elevated somewhat above the body of the shelf 6 so that the shelf 6, when in position, is adjusted substantially flush with the lower sides of the rods 2 and 4. The eflect is to provide beads or flanges along the lateral edges of the shelves, so that any small articles of merchandise which may be placed upon the shelves will not be readily dislodged as the carrier rotates.

By providing the shanks 1 of the hangers with ofisets at their upper ends, danger of the hangers rubbing against the wheel B is obviated.

The construction described is simple, cheap and well adapted to the purpose.

What I regard as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. In a display-rack, the combination of a rotary carrier having a horizontal axis, and carrier-elements suspended thereon and adapted to maintain an upright position during rotation of said carrier, each carrierelement comprising a pair of hangers, each hanger having a shank pivotally suspended from the rotary carrier and provided near its lower end With a pair of arms equipped with horizontal slots, and rods connecting said hangers and adjustably connected With said slots.

2. In a display-rack, the combination of a rotary carrier having rigidly connected endframes and carrier-elements mounted there 10 on, each carrier-element comprising a' pair of hangers suspended from said end-frames, each hanger comprising a depending shank having its upper end pivotally connected With the end-frame and its lower end provided with a vertical slot and lateral arms flanking said Vertical slot and provided with horizontalslots, and three rods connecting said hangers and adjustably connected With the slots thereof.

ISAAC UNGER.
