GEORGE A. LAMP, OF ROCK ISLAND, ILLINOIS.

WEE-BASKET SUPPORT,

insects.

. State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Wire-Basket "Supports, of which the following is a description, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, and to the figures of reference marked thereon.

This invention relates to wire basket suports, and more particularly to supports er -wire baskets adapted for use in oflices and similar places for holding papers and other documents. 7

These paper containing baskets are either of the single type or are specially constructed to receive supporting wires or wlre 1nterconnections, whereby a plurality of baskets may be held securely one above the other, that is, in a. built-up unit. The main objection to the built-up baskets is that the connecting wires and supports are not capable of attachment to the ordinary single type of basket in present day use.

An object of the present inventlon is to provide a simple and inexpensive type of support adapted for attachment to the ordinary type of wire basket of the s1ngle type Without the alteration of the basket in any particular and which support will hold the baskets in superimposed spaced relation.

Another object of the invention resides in providing a support of the above character which will securely hold the baskets in proper position while permitting free access to the basket from all sides.

A further object of the invention resides in providing a device of the character described comprising a, single wire constructed and arranged to provide a basket support with integral attaching hooks spaced apart in a plane transverse to the support so that the corners of the baskets may project into the spaces between the hooks, such arrangement, together with the resiliency of the wire constituting a means for locking the baskets in substantially rigid position.

Still another feature of this invention resides in constructing a support of the character described from a single wire, and in providing the same with the desired number of hooks and strengthening twists.

lhese and other objects will in part be obvious and will in part be herein-after more fully disclosed.-

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Aug. 9, 1921b Application filed August 2, 1920. Serial No. 400,818.

In the drawings Figure 1 is a perspective view of four of the supports, holding three baskets in builtup position;

Fig. 2 is an enlarged view of one corner showing the support connecting with the basket;

Figs. 3 and 4 are detailed perspective views of modifications; and

Flg. 5 is a diagrammatic side view of a further modification.

In general the invention includes four of my supports having basket attaching means spaced along their length and adapted for easy attachment to the ordinary type of wire basket used for holding papers and other light articles. Broadly the invention comprises any type of support having spaced basket attaching .means, whether made of wlre or not.

In its preferred form, the invention as shown in detail in Fig. 1 comprises a single piece of wire of desired gage and strength folded upon itself to provide a closed top 1 and spaced parallel strands 2. At desired points these strands are twisted axially as at 3 to provide a suitable number of strengthening portions or z'ones. For the purpose of providing suitable supports for the wire baskets 4L, 5 and 6, the spaced strands 2-2 are each provided with portions bent upwardly as at 7, 8 and 9, which bent portions are preferably twisted but not necessarily so. These bent portions or hooks are arranged in pairs in planes parallel with the longitudinal planes of the support, so that when they are assembled in position and the baskets attached thereto, as in Fig. 1, the hooks 7, 8 and 9 of each pair will engage the wire strands of the baskets 4, 5 and 6 on each side of the corners thereof, which arrangement permits the corners of the baskets to substantially project into the spaces between the parallel strands. In this manner the supports will not only hold the baskets in superimposed, spaced relation, but the natural resiliency of the supports will cause them to engage the baskets and lock the same in such position. The free ends of the strands of each support are bent outwardly in suitable manner to provide supporting feet 10 and 11 which may or may not be provided with rubber sleeves 12.

In the modification shown in Fig. 3 a support is shown having a single hook 13 at its upper end and; a single book 1% at its lower extremity which is somewhat longer than usual so strands of the wire of a basket. This construction enables a single basket to be supported from another basket lying on a desk. If desired, a basket may be provided with integral depending wires 15, 16, 17 and 18 at each corner, the lower extremities of whichare bent into basket attaching hooks as in Fig. 4. In this construction, it is desirable to give the depending supporting wires a slight inward bend as at 19, 20, 21 and 22 to compensate for the outward flaring of the corners of the basket at the tops as at 23.

It is also evident that it is within the scope of this invention to provide the supports with spaced hooks as in Fig. 5, which shows the opposite side of the wire with intermediate spaced basket hooks 24, 25 and 26 so that the supports may be reversed in position to support two baskets instead of three. These supports would, of course, have the intermediate twisted strengthening portions 29 and 30 and 31. It is also obvious that in lieu of these extra hooks 27 and 28 other article supporting bent portions may be provided.

It will be seen that a support of the above character comprises a neat, simple and strong device for supporting baskets of the kind described. It is also clear that it has many advantages over other supports of similar character in that it can be quickly and simply attached to wire baskets now in use without the alteration of the basket or of the support, or without the use of any implement or tool. Furthermore, these supthat it can engage over two ports can be made up in various sizes and of different gages of wire, according to the needs required.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters latent is:-

1. A support for paper containing baskets and the like,comprising a strand of wire doubled to provide a closed fold at one end and supporting feet at the other, the strands of said wire being spaced and substantially parallel, said strands having a suitable number of bent portions to formgbasket attaching hooks, and intermediateportions twisted to provide strengthening portions.

2. A support for paper containing baskets and the like, comprising a single wire doubled on itself to provide a closed fold at one end and supporting feet at the other end, the strands of said wire being arranged in spaced parallelism,'said strands. at suitable points being formed with bent portions to form basket attaching hooks.

3. A support for paper containing baskets and the like, comprising a single wire doubled on itself to form spaced strands, the free ends thereof forming supporting feet, said strands being twisted axially at certain points to provide strengthening zones, and formed intermediate said twisted portions with upwardly bent portions lying in the same plane and adapted to catch in the strands of the wire basket so that the corners of said basket may project substan tially into the space between the strands.

In testimony whereof, I aflix my signature.
