CLAMP.

Application filed August 24, 1925. Serial No. 52449.

M invention is a clamp adapted to be secured to a wall and may be utilized as a support for garments, such as trousers and skirts, or as a towel, newspaper holder etc.

The clamp is .of a simple lever operated construction which presses the article supported between a bar and the wall. The

ressure bar is preferably. pivoted on a racket having a pair of upstanding ears and the lever for operating the bar is connected thereto at such .an angle that when the article is secured between the clamping bar and the bracket or wall the lever arm or handle engages the wall and prevents further movement.

My invention will be more readily understood from the following description and drawings in which--- b Figure 1 is a perspective view of'my clamp attached to a wall, illustrating the manner of supporting newspapers, towels or the like. i v

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the clamp shown in the position when clamping articles.

Fig. 3 is a front elevation taken in the direction of the arrow 3 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a cross section of Fig.3 on the.

line 44 in the direction of the arrows, indicating the position of the clamp with articles held thereby.

Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig. 4, showing the clamping bar turned outwardly for the insertion or removal of articles.

In the drawings, a wall'or bracket support is indicated by the numeral 1 to which is secured a bracket 2 formed of a metal strap or bar having a'base 3- and outstanding ears 4 each of which has an aperture 5. The clamping rod designated generally by the numeral 6 has a central clamping section 7 crank sections 8 at each end thereof and journal sections 9 havin bearings in theapertures 5. A lever handle 10 is formed on one end of the rod outside of one of the ears 4. This lever handle is offset angularly from the crank sections 8 so that when the clamping section 7 is swung into a position close to the base 3, the tip end 11 of the handle lever is in contact with the wall or bracket 1 as shown in Fig. 4. v I

The manner of operation of my clamp is substantially as follows:

When the lever arm is swung outward in a clockwise direction from that shown in Fig. 4 to thatshown in Fig. 5, the clamping moved the clamp will bar 7 being likewise rotated in a clockwise direction leaves a clear space of considerable extent between the base 3 and the clamping portion 7 of the rod. l'Vhcn the lever arm is swung upwardly in an anti-clockwise direction as indicated by the arrow'of Fig.5, the clamping bar will grip garments or other fiat articles and press them between the bar and the base 3; and the clamping de- (-5 vice may be swung to the position shown in Fig. 4 so that articles will be tightly pressed.

If desired, my clamp may be used to secure towels, paper or the like which it is desired to remove one towel at a time or one 7" sheet at a time, in which case the lever handle will only be pressed. over sufiiciently tight to hold the material. As each towel or sheet lSl'GHlOVGLl by pulling downward thereon as indicated by the arrow in Fig. 4, 7-- there will be a force exerted on the clamping rod 7 tending to rotate it downwardly in an anti-clockwise direction. Thereby, for instance, when an outermost towel is restill .pres sufliciently tight to retain the remaining towels. This action will continue until the lever bears against the wall as shown in Fig. 4. For utilization in the above manner it would be desirable to have the bar 7 approach Quito closely to the base 3 giving substantially only suflicient clearance to hold the last art1cle.

For utilization in this manner i tis desirable to have a series of apertures, such as 5, so that the journal sections 9 may be placed at dilferent distances in the base 3. The manner of inserting and removing the clamping bar is substantially as follows:

The apertures are made sufliciently'large to have a loose fit on the bar or clamping rod and the angles connecting the handle lever 10, the journal section 9 and the crank section 8 are formed with free curves so that the end 11 may be inserted through an aperture and the bar pressed through until the journal 9 is in proper position at the handle erlid. The. other journal is then swung into p ace.

In the construction shown in Fig. 6, the 5 handle is adjustable on the journal'end of the bar which is arranged in a simple inanner by forming the journal end of the clamping rod at one or both ends of a hexagonal or multisided section and attaching a handle to fit thereon. The hexagonal end of the clamping rod 7 is designated by the numeral 12 and the ad'ustable handle 13 may be titted over the end in various positions, being clamped by the set screw it. ln'this construction the handle would be removed to insert the ends of the clamping bar through the desired aperture 5 in the ears Q to obtain the proper adjustment of the clamping rod in relation to the base The handle would then be inserted insthe desired positi'on to allow the clamping bar to swing into the position pressing an article against the base as desired. In the construction of Fig. 6 the apertures 5 can have a close fit with the ends of the bar so that there will be very little lost motion in the rotation of the bar.

My invention may be modified to suit ditterent urposes and uses to which it may be put and may be mounted in a different manner. The bracket and the clamping rod may be positioned vertically or horizontally or at other inclinations according to the particular requirements. Moreover, the base 3 may be omitted and the bar press the articles directly against the structure to which the ears 4 or their equivalent are secured. Other changes will be obvious within the scope of my invention.

For simplicity of describing the invention in the claims, the base 3 may be considered as a horizontal member having outstanding horizontal ears 4 with the movable part of the clamping device pivotally mounted in such ears; this device being adapted to swing with the clamping bar or section 7 either extending horizontally towards the clamping base 3 or slightly above or below such horizontal position. v

My clamp distinguishes from other types of paper holders and the like in which the 'paper rests on a support and is held against a wall structure or the like by the wires of the bracket pressing loosely against the upper portion of the pile of papers.

Having described my invention, what I claim is: 4

1. A clamp comprising in combination a horizontal bar having outstanding ears at right angles thereto in a horizontal direction, the bar and the ears forming a bracket, a clamping rod having journal sections rotatably mounted in the outer end of the cars, a crank section bent substantially at right angles to the journal sections and parallel to the ears, a clamping rod extending parallel to the bar, the crank sections being less in length than the distance from the journals to the bar, a handle attached to one oi the journal sections whereby the clamping section may be positioned extending directly towards the bar or slightly above or be low same to clamp paper between the clamping section and the bar, the ears or brackets being provided with a plurality of apertures whereby the clamping rod may be journaled 1at dillerent distances from the supporting iase.

2. A clamp comprising in combination a horizontal bar having outstanding ears at right angles thereto in a horizontal direcr tion, the bar and the ears forming a bracket, a clamping rod having journal sections rotatably mounted in the outer end of the cars, a crank section bent substantially at right angles to the journal sections and parallel to the ears, a clamping rod extending parallel to the bar, the crank sections being less in length than the distance from the journals to the bar, a handle attached to one of the journal sections whereby the clamp ing section may be positioned extending directly towards the bar or slightly above or below samo to clamp paper between the clamping section and the bar, the handle being adjustably mounted on the end of the journal section and the ears or brackets being provided with a plurality of apertures whereby the clamping rod may be journaled it diflerent distances from the supporting ase.

3. A clamp comprising in combination a horizontal bar having outstanding cars at right angles thereto in a horizontal direction, the bar and the ears forming a bracket, a clamping rod having journal sections rotatably mounted in the outer end of the cars, a crank section bent substantially at right angles to the journal sections and parallel to the cars, a clamping rod extending parallel to the bar, the crank sections being less in length than the distance from the journals to the bar and a handle attached to one of the journal sections whereby the clamping section may be positioned extending directly towards the bar or slightly above or below same to clamp paper between the clamping section and the bar, the handle being positioned relatively to the crank section whereby the end of the handle engages the supporting base when the clamping section of the rod is a desired distance from the said supporting base.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification.
