C. F- STRUNCK DISPLAY STAND Filed April 27, 1926 INVENTOR 71 4 ATTOR EY CARL r. srnuncx, or misnnnsonvnmn, noarn ,cnnm. DISPLAY are-NI Application filed Apri127,1926. Serial No. io-eece.

i The invention relates to display stands by means of which merchandise of variouskinds may be exhibited m a convenient and attractive manner.

The principal object'of the invention, generally stated, is to provide adisplay stand which is adjustable as to height so that goods of any desired kind may be disposed at a pre ferred elevation, depending, upon their nature, lighting effects and other circumstances which may enter into the matter. 4

An important object of the invention is to provide a display stand having very simply constructed means for holding the parts ata desired adjustment.

A further object of the invention is the provision .of a display stand or the'like m which the relativel movable elements Will: be normally locked against 'movement, a positive'action being required. on the part of the operator to effect release-of the holding means so that the adjustment. may be varled to meet conditions.

- Still another object is to provide a device of this character in which the locking or a holding means is of such formation that any wear on the relatively movable parts will be automatically taken u and any looseness consequently prevente the length of life being therefore materlally increased.

An additional object of the invention is to provide a device or structure of this character or of a similar nature which will be simple and inexpensive to manufacture, easy to set up and use, convenient in action, efli ment and durable in service, and a general im rovement in the art.

'E0 the attainment of the foregoing and other objects and advantages such as will hereinafter a pear, the invention preferably consists in t e details of construction and the arrangement and combination of parts to be more full described and claimed, and illustrated in te accompanying drawmgm which:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of the complete device,

Figure 2 1s a fragmentary elevat1on taken at right angles to igure 1 and looking at the releasing lever an Figure 3 is a I on a slightly larger scale. 0

Referring to the drawin 1n detail, the device is represented as inc uding a referably weighted base 1 of any desir 8120, shape an material, and from which rises a eluding or com detail longitudinal section tubular standard 2 on which ismounted, as for'instance by threading, a hon-sing or -casing element 3 which may formed as a. casting, and which may have any requisite dimensions. This member 3 .isshown as socketed at its. lower end, at 4, and provided with'an inwardly extending flange 5 for a purpose to be described. I I

The stand further includes a rod-like conveniently be stamping or pressing member 6- telescopically engaged within the standard 2 and slidable through an 0 'ening 7 at the top of the member i enlargement 8 may be provided on the lower end of the rod member 2, which collar is adaptedto engage against the shoulder 5 forthe purpose of. preventing withdrawal of the 3, Ace aror member 2 from the relatively Stationarypor tion of the stand. Clearly, the rod member may have any preferred tlonindicated at 9, depending upon the nature of the olding the rod 6, and goods carried upper end construc- I revision of peculiar and novel meansgoods or articles to be displayed. I

theregy, at any desired height. Themechanism this purpose is here disclosed as inrising a vertically slidable wedge 10 provi ed at one side with a leather or other similar friction shoe 11 adapted to bear against the rod 6. The member 3 is provided at its inner surface with an inclined wall portion 12 against which the wedge is slidably engaged. A coil spring 13 urges the wedge downwardly into active position, this sprin abutting against the top of the wedge and an ear 14 at the ed e of an the side of the mem r 3. r

For effecting release of the locking wedge so that the rod 6 may he s ect to the standard 2, I have shown a t umb lever 16' ivoted at 17 within the opening 15 in opening 15, the t umb lever being of an lar shape and having a rod 18 or the 11k against the underside of moved with rei pivoted-upon its inner end and with the wedge.

In the use of the device it will of course be seen that under normal circumstances the pressure of the spring against the wedge will orce the latter against the inclined wall or f justed osition'and cidenta' movement.

rod 6 is needed, press upon the thumb lever 16- and, by means lease of the pressure willpermit the spring 13 to return'the wedge In case a change in the positionof the it is merely necessary to' of the rod or connection 18, move the-wed e 10 upwardly, As the wedge rides along t e inclined surface 12' its crowding action against the rod 6 will be relieved and the rod may then be moved freelywith respect to the remainder of the device; When the parts are then in the proper pos1t1on,.re-' upon the thumb-lever to its lockingv osition.

. Fromthe foregoing description and a' study of thedrawing' it that I have thus prov ded a simply con-- will be apparent structed and very easily adjusted display stand capable of usetfor'a wide variety of purposes and one which possesses the advantage 1 of eliminating the use 0 eat set screws such as are commonly provided,-it

-- bein well known that when such set screws are 0st astand is atleast temporarily useless. a V I While I have shown and described the device as a display stand, it shouldbe understood that the same locking means may be used in connection with an type of apparatus in which -:it is desira 1e to hold one telescopic member against movement with respect to another with which it cooperates.

' lit should also be understood that'l reserve the right to make such changes in the details and the arrangement as will widen the '7 field of utility and increase the adaptability ,claim:

of the device, provided such changes, moda fications or variations constitute no deparmm from the spirit of the invention or the scopeof the. claims hereunto a pended.

Having thus described the invention, l

the casing member, said against any possible ac- Y guide rising t in the tubular guide,

2. In a structure including a base,a tubular standard rising therefrom, and a casing member carried by the standard, a rod slidably mounted within the standard and extending through the casing member, said Leasing member having an inclined inne1. wall, a wedge slidably mounted within the 'casingmember and having an inclined sidecoacting with said inclined surface whereby tobe crowded against the rod, an abutment element in the casing member, a spring engaging the abutment element and the wedge, means for releasing the spring tension, comprising a pivoted "angle lever mounted on the casingmember, the casing member having an opening --accommodat' ting movement pivotally connected with the inner end of 15 ng and permitof the lever, and anelement the lever, slidable through the abutment element and connected with the wedge.
