UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

FREDERICK SPECKMAN, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI.

MOP-WRINGER.

.Application filed December 29, 1919.

dent of the city of St. Louis and State of Missouri, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Mop-VVringers, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to mop wringers and has for its principal objects to provide a wringer with which water can be easily and thoroughly wrung out of mops without touching them with the hands and which can be used with buckets of different sizes and to secure other advantages hereinafter appearing. The invention consists in the parts and combinations of parts hereinafter described and claimed.

In the drawings which form part of this specification and wherein like reference numerals indicate like parts wherever they occur,

Figure 1 is an elevation of a mop wringer embodying my invention, showing the position of the mop when being wrung;

Fig. 2 is an elevation showing the method of placing the mop in the wringer;

Fig. 3 is a plan view;

Fig. 4 is a section along the line 4 4 of Fig. 2; and

Fig. 5 is an elevation showing a modification of my invention.

A supporting frame 1 has a transverse member 2 with downwardly bent end portions whereby the frame is adapted to be supported on a bucket 3 or the like. The frame 1 has a clamp 4 at the end for fastening it to the bucket. A brace 5 prevents the arms of the frame 1 from spreading. The arms of the frame may be made long enough to extend across the bucket, in which case they will have clamps 4 at both ends,

one' clamp being slidably arranged so Vas to be adaptable to buckets of various sizes.

A bracket 6 projecting upwardly from the frame 1 has its arms pivotally secured thereto by bolts 7 or the like passing through holes in said bracket arms and frame 1. Said bracket arms have a plurality of holes 8 therein, thus providing means for adjusting the height of the bracket 6 with respect to the frame 1. An annular ring 9 having a gap 10 therein is secured to said bracket:

A member 11 projecting above said ring has a hook 12 or the like disposed over the central opening of said ring. The bracket 6 is preferably disposed on the outside of Specification of Letters Patent.

serial No. 348,132.

the bucket. If the top of the bracket tends to swing outwardly from the bucket, the lower end portions strike the bucket to prevent such movement. The top of the bracket 6 is free to swing inwardly over the bucket.

A hanger 13 has its arms pivotally secured to the arms of the frame 1 andhas a basket 14 of wire mesh or the like pivotally secured at the top thereof. The hanger arms 13 have projections 15 thereon adapted to engage the bracket arms 6. The bracketis normally substantially vertical and the hanger is inclined toward it.

IVhen a mop is to be wrung out, it is placed in the wire basket. The head of the mop is disposed in the annular ring and the mop handle is disposed so as to be held by the hook. The mop and bracket are swung over the bucket. The action of the bracket arms on the projections on the hanger arms causes the hanger and its basket to swing upwardly approaching -closer to the annular ring. The lengths of the bracket and hanger arms and their points of attachment to the frame are so selected that the basket continues to approach the annular ring until the basket and hanger have reached a horizontal position. The facts that the head of the mop is engaged by the annular ring and vthat there is a downward pressure on the mop handle cause the mop to be pressed into the basket and the water squeezed out. I may secure a trough-like member 16 to the arms of the hanger under the basket, to catch the water from the mop and direct it into the bucket.

Fig. 5 shows a modified form of member for engaging the mop handle, comprising a grooved spool or roller 17 disposed above the annulus of the ring. 5 also shows a supporting frame having its arms long enough to extend across the bucket.

My device is easily and quickly operable, it wrings the mop out thoroughly, and in using it, it is not necessary to touch the mop with the hands. It is obvious that numerous changes may be made without departing from my invention and I do not wish to be limited to the exact construction shown.

That I claim is:

1. A mop wringer comprising a support adapted to be secured to a bucket, a mop receiving member pivotally mounted on said support, a bracket pivotally secured to said support, and a mop engaging member secured to said bracket and arranged to coperate with said receiving member to squeeze out a mop, said mop engaging and receiving members being adapted to be operated by means of the handle of a mop.

2. A support, a mop receiving member pivotally secured thereto, and means for pressing a mop into said mop receiving member, said means comprising a bracket pivotally mounted on said support and a member secured to said bracket and adapted to engage the head of a mop and press it into said receiving member When the handle of said mop is pressed downwardly.

3. A mop Wringer comprising a support adapted to be secured to a bucket, a mop receiving member pivotally secured to said support, a bracket pivotally secured to said support and a member secured to said bracket and adapted to engage the head of a mop and coperate With said mop receiving member to Wring out a mop, and a trough under said mop receiving member to catch the water from said mop.

4. A mop Wringer comprising a support, a bracket pivotally secured thereto, a member on said bracket adapted toengage the head and handle of a mop, a mop receiving member having arms pivotally secured to said support, and means on said arms adapted to be engaged by said bracket, whereby said mop receiving member is caused to approach said mop engaging member When said bracket is tilted.

Signed at St. Louis, Missouri, this 27th day of December, 1919.

FREDERICK SPECKMAN.
