'-In its general aspect the invention includes a truck mounted on wheels and hav-- ing on opposite edges thereof suitable pedestal frames. theupper ends of whichare adapted to engage the mouth edges of a bag, such as a laundry bag, for the purpose of holding the bag open. One of said pedestal frames is pivoted and movable and tends to be held in a normally dis tended position from the other frame by reason of the connection, to said pivoted frame, of a spring. This connection is for the purpose of'permitting the mouth of a bag to be held open when one edge of the mouth is engaged by the fixed,

frame and another pivoted frame. 7

In the preferred form of the invention 1 show a truck base orbodyportion -10having wheels 11 and 12 so that the device may be used as a wheeled truck. The base 10 portion is held by the which is preferably a single piece plate has its front and .rear ends bent upwardly'to present upstanding guard members 13' and 14 respectively, which act as guides and re inforcing elements for two pedestal frames, gettlng into the frame work, and also as a' free guideway to slide'the bag sideways from' longitudinal section LTh1s device is simple,

One of the frames is; stationarily fixed andcomprises vertically extending beams v15 and 16 con i iected at: their'upper ends by; a -crossbar 17 and braced by an intermediate crossbar 18 andnheld. in place at the lorwerends' by the guard-member 13'.

apply a bag to the holder the open end at one side is turned over the cross-bar .17 the cross-bar 24 of frame 20, is then forced toward cross bar 17 and the'opposite side of the bag is then turned over cross bar 24 and caught under the end fingers 25' and 26, which, projecting inwardly tend to more firmly secure the bag in place. As shown in Figure 4, the mouth of a laundry bag 27 is engaged by the upper end of thefixed frame and by the upperendof the pivoted frame. This laundry bag may be clamped. to the frame portion if desired, although such clamping is not shown. The tendency therefore is to hold the mouth of the bag open while laundry is beingput therein, the truck being capable of moving around'the shop. efficient and practical. By'making the base 10 integral with the. up-

standing guards, there are no gaps or open .ings leftthrough which the bag or anything put on the base cap pass to get clogged up guardmember l4 flaring upwardly and outwardly provides for locating the pivot or frame 20 above the guard member 14 and to advance of same, by which arrangement the bulge that ordinarily takes place intermediate the top and bottom of a filled bag is or lost entirely; and, the

1. A bag holder comprising a base body portion having upstanding guard members a fixed pedestal frame exfrom one edge of said base body portion, said fixed frame having bag supporting means at the top, a pivoted pedestal frame extending upwardly from the opposite edge of said base body portion, said pivoted frame having means at the top thereof, a-spring connected at one end below and to the body portion, and at its other end to the lower portion of the pivoted frame and tending normally to hold the upper end of the pivoted frame away from the upper end of the fixed frame, said bag holding means being adapted to be engaged by the mouth of a bag, the action of the spring tending to hold the mouth of the bag in a distended position.

2. A support for laundry bags comprising a body base portionhaving upstanding ends forming guard members, a fixed pedat opposite edges, tending vertically estal frame rigidly held in one guard mem her, an inclined movable pedestal frame pivotally connected with the opposite guard member, the upper ends of each frame pro+ frame providing for bag holding vided with bag holding means, and spring means cooperating with the lower end of the movable frame to normally urge the upper end of the pivotedframe away from, the upper end of the rigid frame, the inclined bulging of a filled bag.

3LA bag holder comprising a base body portion having upstanding end guard meinbers, one guard member adapted to hold a vertical pedestal frame, guard member flaring upwardly and outwardly, a movable pedestal frame pivotally secured adjacent the top of said flared member and in advance thereof, the upper ends of the frames provided with bag holding means. 7

i. A bag holder as defined in claim 3, the movable pedestal frame comprising an inclined lower portion and a vertical upper portion, the movable pedestal frame pivotally connected near the upper end of the inclined portion at or near the upper end of the flared guard member, and in advance thereof. a V

5. A bag holder as set forth in claim 2, the bag holding means at the top of the pivoted frame comprising a cross-bar provided at its opposite ends with downwardly extending fingers said fingers also inclining inwardly toward the'fixed pedestal frame.
