ToaZ'Z'w ham c'tmay concern .1

Be it known; that we, C RL, J. MOI-IR and URBAN J. MOHR, citizens, of the United States,residing at Dayton, in the county of Montgomery and State of Ohio, have 1nvented certain new and useful Improvemerits in Paint-Bucket Holders, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to. the accompanying drawings.

This invention relates to! supports, pari u y o dev es for ppo g P buckets or pails and the" like, and has tor its object the provision of a novel; bucket ack or support adapted for use by painters and others working upon-roofs, the devicebeing of peculiar formation whereby it may be engaged upon a sloping root i or holding a paintor other bucket in an upright pos1t1on..

An important ob ect; isthe provision of a device of this character which isprovided with adjustable legs whereby t may be used upon roofs of different pitch for the bucket upright, the device being further-- more so, constructed. as to prevent any slipping when a paint brush is wiped against the edge thereof or in case any lateral strain should be applied which might ordinarily tend to move or upset the bucket.

An additional: bjectis the provision of a device of this character which is provided with means for clamping the bucket so that the lattercannot be tipped over with, respect to the support. I

Another obj eot istheprovision of a device of this character which. will be simple and inexpensive in construction, and apply, highly efiicient in use, service and. art.

With the above and other objects and advantages in View, the invention conslsts 1n the details of construction to be hereinafter more fully described and claimed, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:

easy to adjust Figure l is a side elevation showing one form of our device;

Figure 2 is a plan view; Figure 3 is an elevation at right angles to Figure 1;

Figure 4: iliary feet;-- I a i Figure 5 is a1 side elevation of another form;

Figure-6 is a plan; view thereof;

is a detail view showing auxholding durable ina general improvement n the our invention we provide a supporting base 10 which in the present instance may be a casting and this. base is preterably oi rectangular shape and provided on its upper surface with an upstanding circular flange 11 which has one point provided with an upstandinglug' 12 through which extends a thlunb screw 13 adapted to clampingly engage the bucket which rests upon the base 10 within the: confines of the-flange 11.

Eormed at. two adjacent corners of the base-"10 are the rear legs-'14 which terminate in penetrating points 15. Formed on the oppositecorners of-the base are dependinglegs 16 whicharerelatively long compared with'the legs, 14, and whichmay be called the front legs. The lower ends of these front legs are formed with'elongated slots 1.7 and, slidably mounted upon the legs are elongated strips or plates 18which are held in adjusted position by means of screws 19 which pass-through the slots 17': and through the plates l8andwhich carry clamping-nuts 20. Bythis construction it will be seen that the plates 18'1may be adjusted to extend to a greater-or less extent or degree below-- the legs 16 for the purpose-of adjusting the: device for use upon roofs ofdifl'erent pitches. It isalso preferable that the lower ends of the plates 18 be toothed or provided with penetrating points, asishown" at'21.

Inthe use of this: form of'the device it will be seenthat the base is positioned at the desired location upon the roof and that the plates 18 are adjusted by the means" described so that the base will be in horizontal position so'that the bucket clamped within the flange 11 will be supported in absolutely upright position. The points 15 and 21 will bite into the roof and prevent slipping of the device, as will'be readily apparent.

- In Figure i wehaveshown an attachment forthe lower ends of the plates 18 so that the device will be prevented from slipping when usedon tin roofs. In this figure'we have shown a rubber block 22 formed with a plate 18 and located at the base of the socket is a small metal plate 24 which is for the purpose of I p from cutting through the rubber. l/Vhen the device is used on tin roofs, these rubber blocks are simply placed upon the lower ends U whereupon. the frictional en of the strips 18 gagement'of the rubber with the tin roof will prevent the device from slipping.

In Figures 5 to 7 inclusive we have shown another form of the device which is intended to be constructed of sheet metal. In this form the numeral 25 designates a rectan nlar metal plate which "is formedwith a p urality of slots 26 arranged in circular series fora purpose to be described. Formed at two adjacent corners of this plate are downwardly extending legs 27 which preferably terminate in penetrating may be called the rearlegsof the device. The intermediate portion of the opposite side of the sheetis formed with a knuckle 28, through which passes a pintle 29 upon which arehinged knuckles 30 formed-upon the upper ends of elongated strips orplates 31 which constitute the front legs and which preferably terminate in penetrating points.

Formed upon the opposite side edges of the plate 25 are downwardly extending'fianges 32 which are formed with elongated slots 33. Formed on the plates31 are cars 34 with which are -pivotally connected, at 35, the lower ends of inclined braces 36 which have their other ends carrying screws 37 passing through the slots and carrying clamping nuts 38. I

The numeral39 designates a contractible band of sheet metal which is disposed upon the plate 25 and which is formed at its lower edge with a plurality of depending lugs 40 which lit within the slots 26. The ends of this band are formed with outturned ears 41 through which passes a screw 42 carrying a wingnut 43. It should be noted that the slots 26 and lugs 40. areformed at the end of the band, most remote from the ears 41 in order not to interfere with contraction of the band. i

This form of the device isused in substantially the same manner as the previously described form except that the adjustment of thefront legs for the purpose'of bringing the plate 25 in a horizontal position isdifferent. .In this form the adjustment iseffected by moving the brace rods 36 along the slots 33 so as to vary the angular position of thefront legs-31, the desired adjustment I being .inaintained by tightening the nuts 38..

The bucket .B is placed'upon the plate 25 within the band39 .and the latter is then contracted into clamping engagement with the bucketby tightening the nut 43. The eiigagement of the lugs 40 within the slots Qdw'ill prevent the band and bucket from being: disposed laterally upon the plate. If

preventing the teeth orpoints 21 points and which desired, the same rubber blockspreviously described might be used on the front legs 31 in case the device is used on a tin roof.

In Figure 8 the front legs 44 are formed integrally" upon a plate 45 which corresponds to the plate 25 and the slotted flanges are eliminated, the legs 44 being braced by inclined strips 46 secured thereto and to the plate 45 by any desired means. This form of the device is not adjustable for roofs of different pitches but in other respects is capable of use in the same manner as both of the above described forms.

From the foregoing description and a study of the drawings it will be apparent that wehave thus structed 'and consequently inexpensive bucket jack or holder by means of which paintor other buckets or pails may be supported in absolutely uprightposition upon ai'oof of any pitch, ample. adjustment be ing provided for taking care of any variations of pitch. The device is clearly a great convenience and time and labor saver for painters or other mechanics having occasion to support abucket or similar receptacleupon a sloping surface. Owing to the simplicity of the construction it is obvious that there is practically nothing to get out of order andthatthedevice should consequently have a long life and satisfactorily perform all the functions for which it is intended. 1

While we have shown anddescribed the preferred embodiment of the invention, it is ofcourse to be readily understood that we reserve the right to makesuch changes in the form, construction and arrangement of parts as will not depart from the spirit of the'invention or the scope of the sub-joined claims.

Having thus described our invention, we claim: 1. A device of the "character described comprising a base plate provided with supporting legs, means for supporting a receptacle upon the base plate consistingof a contractible band provided with clamping means for effecting contraction about a receptacle placed within the confines of the band, and connecting means between the band and the base means being-at that portion of the band most whereby to permit the contraction and expansion. 1 x i v 2. A device of the character ldescribed comprising a base plate provided at two cornerswitlr rigid legs, a pair ofrelatively long le 's hingedly mounted at the other corners ofithe base plate, depending flanges formed on the edges of the base plate, be tweensaid short-and long legs and formed with elongated slots, brace members piv otally connected with the long legs, screws provided a simply conplate, said connectlng remote from. the clamping means carried by said braces and passing through said slots, and adjusting nuts threaded on said screws.

3. A device of the character described comprising a base plate provided at two adjacent corners with depending short legs, relatively long depending legs at the other corners of the base plate, and means for supporting a receptacle upon the Base plate 10 comprlsing a contractible band adapted to receive a receptacle and provided with clamping means for effecting contraction, said band being formed on its lower edge with a series of lugs, and the base plate being formed with slots receiving said lugs.

In testimony whereof We hereunto aflix our signatures.
