NETQ T WILLIAM'M. POR'INER, OF FREEPORT, ILLINOIS.

MOP WRINGER.

Application filed August 17. 1922. Serial No. 582,456.

To all whom itmcj concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM M. PORTNER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Freeport, in the county of Stephenson and Stateof Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Mop Wringers; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of themvention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same. I

The invention relates to mopsand more articula-rly to Wringer means which may e applied to the handle of a mop of any make or design.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent and suggest themselves as the nature of the invention is understood. I

While the drawingsillustrate an embodi- 0 ment of the invention it is to be understood that in adapting the same to meet different conditions and requirements, various changes in the form, proportion and minor details .of construction may be resorted to without 2 departing-from the nature of the invention. Referring to the accompanying drawings forming a part of the application,

Figure 1 is a perspective. view of a mop provided with a wringer embodying the in} vention,

Figure 2 is an elevation of the wringer partly in section, and

Figure 3 is a horizontal section on th line 33 of Figure 2. Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and designated in the several views of the drawings by like reference characters.

The mop illustrated is shown to demonstrate the application of the invention and comprises a handle 1, head 2, clamp 3, lever 4 and spring 5. The mop 6 is held between the head 2 and clamp 3 in a manner well understood and is adaptedto bereleased or made secure by manipulating the lever 4 which is pivoted to the spring 5' which compensates for variation in the bulk of the mop clamped between the parts 2 and 3.

The wringer comprises a frame which is 59 adapted to be attached to a side of the handle 1 by means of screws or analogous fastenings. The frame includes a stem 7, an upper supporting bracket 8 and a lower supporting bracket 9. The brackets 8 and 9 F are disposed upon opposite ends of the stem 7 and each include an outer cylindrical portion which is closed at its outer end and' open at its inner end. A spiral shaft 10 passes through the cylindrical portions of the brackets 8 and 9 and has a loop 11 at its lower end togeceive an end of the mop 6 which is engaged therewith. The spiral shaft 10 is mounted to receive both a longitudinal and a rotary movement, the longitudinal movement admitting of stretching the mop 6 and the rotary movement admitting of twisting the mop to wringthe same. Up-

per and lower disks 12 and 13, respectively, v

of the brackets 8 and 9 so that the shaft will be efiiciently journaled. A slide is mounted upon the stem 7 and has a spiral engagement with the shaft 10 to effect rotation thereof simultaneously with the rectilinear movement of the slide. The slide includes a base 14, shank 15 and head 16 and may be of any approved construction. The base 14 conforms to the stem 7 and as the latter is half round in cross section, the base 14 is likewise half round to conform thereto The shaft 10 passes through the head 16 and has a spiral engagement therewith, whereby a rectilinear movement of the slide effects a rotary movement of the shaft. Plates 17 are disposed within opposite ends of the head 16 and are connected by means of rods 18. The plates 17 have openings which conform to a cross section of 'the shaft 10 whereby longitudinal movement of the slide causes the shaft 10 to rotate.

It will be understood from the foregoing that the wringer may be readily applied to any make of mop and involves a simple and light structure which is positive and effective in operation. Upward movement of the slide on the handle stretches and wrings the mop and downward movement of the slide releases and untwists the Y mop whereby it may be. used in a manner well understood.

VVh-at is claimed is:

1. A mop wringer comprising a frame. spaced aligned cylindrical elements carried by saidframe, a wringer shaft having one end adapted to engage a mop and provided with disks disposed in the respective cylindrical elements of the frame and adapted to move longitudinally and rotatably therein.

and a slide carried by the frame and having spiral engagement with the Wring'er shaft to and having spiral engagement with the eflect'fboth a longitudinal and a rotary Wringer shaft and adapted to effect both a movement thereof. longitudinal and a rotary movement thereof.

'2. A \vr inger comprising a stern having In testimony whereof I allix my signature 3 spaced brackets at opposite enlds of the stem, in presence of two witnesses.

each having a eylin riea portion, a, 7 wringer shaft having oneend adapted to en- Vi ILLIAM POE} gage a mop and having disks mounted in Witnesses. I the cylindrical portions ,of the respective ROBERT P. ECKERT,
