SIGN-HOLDER.

applicati@ sied Juiy i, 1920. serial No. 393,232.

such as will enable others skilled in the artl to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to improvements in sign-holders such as are used for advertising purposes on counters in stores and in windows and the like; and it has for its object to provide a simple and inexpensive device of this class which is adjustable, permitting it to hold signs of various sizes.

Another object of the invention is to generally improve upon and simplify the construction o devices of this class and to produce one which is easy adjusted, strong, durable and highly effective in use.

@ther objects and advantages of the invene tion will be apparent during the course of the following description.

In the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals are employed -to designate like parts throughout the same.:-

Figure l'is a front elevational view of a .sign-holder constructed in accordance with my invention.

,F ig. 2 is an end elevational view, taken on the line 2--2 of Fig. 1, looking in the direction of the arrows. l A

Fig. 3 is a vertical section taken on the iin@ 3 3 of rig. i.

Fig. 4 is a horizontal section taken on the line 4--4 `of Fi l.

Brieiy described, the devicey comprises a base from which a standardvrises, the latter being telescopically engaged by a vertically adjustablebar, the latter and standard carrying horizontal cross arms which in turn are provided at their outer ends with card engagin members, suitable means being employe to retain the bar in various adjusted positions.

Referring to the drawings wherein the construction isl shown in detail, it will be seen that numeral l designates an apertured base which is adapted to be attached by suitable fastenin s on a counter or other suitable place at which a device of this class 1s used. The laterally bent lower end 2 of the Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 23, 1920.

standard 3 is secured by suitable fastenings 4 to the base. If desired, a small L-sliaped brace 5 may be employed to increase the rigidity oi the structure, this brace being secured by the fastenings 4 to the base and being soldered or otherwise secured to the lower portion of the standard 3. This standard may be of any other construction, but

I desire to bend the opposite longitudinal edges thereof laterally as indicated at 6 and then inwardly toward each other as indicated at 7, which construction forms a split sleeve in which a vertically adjustable bar 8 is slidable. Secured intermediate its ends to the laterally bent upper end 9 of said standard is a cross arm l0 which coperates with a second cross arm 1l which is secured intermediate its ends to the front face of the bar 8 adjacent the upper end of the latter. For the purpose of engaging a sign or card, I equip each of the cross arms at its opposite ends with card engaging clips l2. For the sake of low cost of manufacture and to reduce the retail cost of the device, I desire to employ the types of card clips shown. An examination of these parts will disclose the fact that each one is merely a short piece of metal bent between its ends to form a U, which straddles and is secured in any suitable way to the arms 10 and 11. In order just described clips. By oldi-setting the upvper end 9 of the standard and securing the arm l0 thereto, the latter and the upper arm ll become vertically aligned so that the card may be easily placed between them and held against possible displacement. Any suitable means such as a set-screw 14 may beemployed for holding the parts in the po'- sition to which they have been moved to accommodate different sizes of signs.

The manner of using the device is entirely obvious and it is not thought that a description isnecessary.

From the foregoing description there will be seen that I have perfected an extremely 4simple and effective sign-holder which will permit various sizes of signs and cards to be supported thereby. The device consists of extremely yfew and inexpensive parts, and it is extremely easy to make use of.

It is to be understood that the yform of my invention herein shown and described is to be taken as a preferred form of same, and that various minor changes in the shape, size, and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claims.

I claim:

l. A sign holder comprising a base, a standard rising therefrom, having its opposite longitudinal edges directed laterally in a rearward direction and then inwardly toward each other, forming a split sleeve. the upper end of this standard above said flanges being relatively narrow and offset forwardly, a horizontal cross-arm secured to said off-set portion having its rear face flush with the rear face of the standard, card engaging means carried by the crossarm, a bar telescoping into said split sleeve, and card engaging means at the upper end of said bar. s

2. A sign holder comprising a base', a

Lerares standard rising therefrom, having its opposite longitudinal edges directed laterally in a rearward direction and then inwardly toward each other, forming a split sleeve, the end of this standard above said flanges be ing relatively narrow and off-set forwardly, a flat faced horizontal cross-arm secured intermediate its ends to said offset portion, its rear face being flush with the rear face of the standard, U-card clips at the opposite ends of said cross-arm, a vertical' rod of rectangular cross-section telesooping into the flanges of the standard and bearing against the rear face of said erossarni. a second cross-arm of the same length the first named arm, being secured intermediate its ends to the upper end of said vertical rod, and inverted U-clips on this armrop'posite the first named clips.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand.-

MICHAELy J.l DEMUTH.
