MEAN@ PATENT OEETCE.

ADVERTISING DISK FOR AUTOMOBILE WHEELS.

Application led May 18, 1922. Serial No. 561,325.

will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and'use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to lthe characters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to an advertising device and has special reference to a device which is adapted to be applied to the hubs of automobile wheels.

Business people such as manufacturers an storekeepers in general find it advisable at all times to advertise and thus keep the `public informed of the variousthings they have to sell and of any special bargains that they may have. Merchants in general have at theirdisposal an e'ective advertising medium which they have failed sofar to utilize to its fullest capacity, and this is their delivery -vwagons As a usual thing, a merchant will have a number of delivery wagons which each day visit every part of the town or city, but the only messagethat it brings is the name and location of the store, which is painted thereon and therefore cannot readily be altered.

lt is my ob'ect to provide each automobile wheel with adisk that is pivotally connected to the hub and counterweighted so that it will remain stationary while the wheel rotates, and to paint on the outside Vof 'such disks any advertisements or announcement that the owner desires. The disks are made v so that they may be readily removed and re ainted or cleaned.

n order to more clearly describe my invention, I shall have reference to' the accompanying drawing, in which- Fig. l is a side elevation of an automobile wheel with my disk in place thereon;

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the central portion of my disk, with parts broken' away, along line 2-2, Fig. 3, for the purpose of moreclearly showing the means employe for mounting the disk on the wheel hub;

Fig. 3 is a section taken on line 3 3, Fig.

1, and shows the means employed for securing`the disk in place on the wheel; and f ig. i is a section similar to that in Fig.

3, and shows a slight modification in 'the construction.

The same reference characters will be used to indicate the same parts throughout the several views.

lln Fig. 1 l have shown a side elevation of an lautomobile wheel with my disk attached thereto. Numeral 1 indicatesthe pneumatic tire casing on the wheel and numeral 2 represents the disk, on the outside of which the sign, advertisement or announcement is painted. A counter-weight 3 is secured to the inside of the disk near one edge thereof,

and serves to keep the disk from rotating with the wheel in a manner to be hereinafter described. l

'Referring now more particularly to Fig. 3,

it will-,be noticed that the disk 2 is provided centrally thereof with a hole yt through which the hub 5 of the wheel extends. A felt Washer 6 is securedy to the inner surface of the disk-2 ,and held in place thereon by any suitable means (not shown).` 'llhe disk is supported on the hub 5 by means of three rollers 7 pivoted to the inner ends of bars 8 which are slidably connected to the disk by means of straps 9, whose ends are secured to the disk 2 by means of rivets 10. The outer ends of bars 8 are provided with slots 11 ythrough which a clamping'bolt 12 extends.

By the means just described, the disk 2 may be rotatably mounted on the wheel hub 5.

' The rollers 7 maybe adjusted to fit any size hub and to' take up slack due to wear.

lln order to keep the disk from moving longitudinally on the hub, ll drill an opening through the` end of the "hub cap 13 and lnsert a bolt la through the same. A round nut 15 serves to clamp the bolt securely onto the hub cap and also as a bearing. Secured centrally of disk 2 is a conical member 16 which has at its outer end a cylindrical Harige 17 for the reception of a cap 18. At

the outer end of the member 16 li secure a transverse closure 19, which may besecured thereto by means of rivets or by solder,fand which is provided with 'a central opening engaging the outer surface of .theclrcular nut 15. A star-shaped nut 2O serves to pred' vent the outward movement y'ont the disk on the wheel.

A'jwash'er 21, preferably offelt, is provided between the end of the hub'cap lill@ and the inside of the transverse closure 19. The space within the conical member 16 may be partly filled with grease whereby the parts are lubricated.'

In Fig. 4 I have shown a modification in which a ring 22, having a concave outerV surface, is secured to the outside of the hub 5 and serves as a runway for the rollers 7. Ring 22 may be made in different sizes so as to fit the hubs of diierent machines.

It is apparent from the above that my advertising disk can be readily applied to and removed from the wheel, and that it is so mounted thereon as not to wabble from side to side or to cause a rattling noise. rlhe counter-weight 3 prevent-s the disk from rotating, With the result that the printing thereon can be read when the machine is moving, as well as when it is standing still.

In the drawings I have illustrated what l believe t0 be the referred form of my in'- vention, but it 1s apparent that minor changes may be made without departing from the spirit of my invention, and ll therescope of the appended claim may be made.

without departing from the spirit of the invention.

' Having now described my invention, what I claini is- An advertisingl device adapted to be attached to an automobile wheel hub, comprising a circular disk having a .central opening therein, a plurality of radially disposed and angularly spaced bars slidably adjustable on said disk, rollers secured to the end of said bars and adapted to engage the outer surface of the hub, a conical housing secured to the outside of said disk, a transverse diaphragm near the outer end of said housing, an opening in said diaphragm adapted to receive a pivot pin attached to the hub cap,

a cylindrical flange projecting from the outer end of said conical housing, and a cover adapted to engage said fiange.

ln testimony whereofI aix my signature.

' EDWARD )FRANKLIN HRAUCHIEIR.
