l/VVE/VTOR lfl[zole ji-kfoyrw W. H. JAYNE MOP HEAD Filed Oct. 16.

A TTOR/VEVS Patented Dec. 18, 1923.

WADE H. WAYNE, 015' NEW YQBK, N. Y.

nor nnan Application 'flled October 16, 1922. Serial No. 584,924.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WADE H. JAYNE, a citizen ofthe United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Mop Heads, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to improvements in mop heads and othersimilar articles.

The general object of the invention is the provision of a mop head of simple and durable construction that is cheap to manufactors and easy to operate.

This object is accomplished by providing two hollow sheet metal jaws and attaching them to opposite sides of the handle by means of staples in such a manner that they may be rotated through a certain angle away from the lower end of the mop handle, associating with the jaws means for clamping them together, and mounting on the handle means for opening the jaws when the clampin means is released.

These and other objects of the invention will be more clearly understood from the following detailed description and accompanying drawings.

Figure 1 is a top plan view of the mop head attached to a mop handle;

Figure 2 is a section through the mop head showing its construction;

Figure 3 is a section along the line 33, Fi ure 2.

eferring to the above-mentioned drawings, the invention includes two hollow jaws 10 and 11 which are provided with prongs 12 for gripping a cleaning element 13 shown in dotted lines in Figure 2. v The jaws .10 and 11 are hingedly'conn'ected to the handle 14 by means of staples 15 and 16, respectively. As is seen in Figure 2, these staples are not driven home but only part way into the handle, thus allowing the jaws to be swung throu h a certain angle away from the lower on of the mop handle. The upper ends 17 and 18 of the jaws 10 and 11, respectively, are curved so that they fit the contour of the handle 14. Openings 19 and 20 are cut in the jaws 10 and 11, respectively, the opening 20 being larger than the opening 19. A pin 21 is projected through the openings 19 and 20 and through the mop handle 14, as shown in Figures 2 and 3. The end of the pin 21 extending through the opening 19 is split open, as shown at 22, thus forming a head on the end of the pin which will not pull through the opening. Hingedly connected to the other end of the pin 21 by means of the pin 25 is a cam 23 which serves as a means for clamping the jaws together. The cam 23 is operated by a lever 24 formed integral with it.

In order to provide a means for opening the jaws when the cam member is released an opening 26 is formed in the mop handle 14. Mounted in this opening 26 and encircling the pin' 21 is a coil s ring 27 which bears against the jaw 11. onsequently, as soon as the cam is released the spring 27 forces the jaw 11 outward, releasing the cleaning element 13. As stated above, the opening 20 in the jaw 11 is made of greater size than the opening 19 in the jaw 10' so that the jaw 11 may be forced outward on the pin 21.

The operation of the device is as follows:

When it is desired to use the mop, the lever 24 is thrown outward into the position shown by the dotted lines in Figure 2, releasing the ,jaw 11, which is forced outwardby the spring 27. The cleaning element is then inserted between the jaws, and

the cam member operated to clamp the jaws together, forcing the prongs 12 into engagement with the cleaning element 13.

I would state in conclusion that while the illustrated example constitutes a practical embodiment of my invention, I do not limit myself strictly to the exact details herein illustrated since manifestly the same can be considerably varied without departing from the spirit of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Claims:

'1. In a mo including a handle, a mop head comprising two jaws hinged to the mop handle opposite one another, a pin extending through the jaws and handle and engaging one of the jaws, a cam carried by the pin for operating the jaws, and a spring located in the handle and mounted on the E3 7 neveeee pin between the jaws for operating one of the countersunk opening in the handle and them when released by the operation of the the jaws and engaging one of the jaws, a 10 m, v cem carried by the pm for operating the 2. A mop comprising a mop handle havjaws, and a spiral spring positioned in said 5 ing a countersunk opening extending countersunk opening encircling pin providthrough its lower end, two jaws hinged to ing means for operating one of the jaws opposite sides of the mop handle in line when released by the operation of the cam. with one another, a, pin extending through WADE H. JAYN E.
