J. M. MAYS MOP HOLDER Jan. 24, 1928.

Filed March 10. 1927 Patented Jan. 24,1928.

UNITED STATES JAMES n. Matte, or rrrrssnnerr, rnmrsYLvAnm.

MOI HOLDER.

Application filed March 10, 1927. Serial No. 174,155.

My invention relates to mop holders, and partlcularly to means whereby the mop yarn or other material is attached to a handle.

One object of my invention is to provide a niop holder or mop head of such form that the mop yarn, cloth, or the like, can be readily attached to a handle, by a holding mem her that is adjustable longitudinally of the handle to permit of compression of material betwen the holder and the lower end of the handle, so that the holder will be imbedded in the mass of mop material and will not have contact with the floor, and so that the holder is adaptable to masses of mop 1 material of various thicknesses.

Another object of my invention is to simplify and improve mop structures generally.

Some of the forms which my invention may take are shown in the accompanying drawing, wherein Figure 1 is a perspective view of mop structure embodying my invention; Fig. 2 is a partial sectional view of the structure of Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is an elevational View, partially in section, on an enlarged scale, of the head structure of Fig. 2 with the mop yarn removed; Fig. 4 is a view taken on the line IV-IV of Fig. 3, and Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig. 4, but showing a modification of the device of Fig. 4.

The mop structure is shown as provided with a handle 6 to which a mop yarn 7 is attached by means. of a yoke-like holding member 8 which is provided with teeth or serrations, as shown more clearly in Figs. 2 and 3. Ferrule-like socket members 9 and 10, of sheet metal or the like, are secured to the mop handle by means of a bolt 11 and have cut-out portions whose lower edges are bent inwardly, as indicated at 12, to engage the teeth formed in the legs of the U member 8, the ferrule 9 being provided with semi-circular recesses or grooves 13 into which the legs ofthe yoke may be slid to secure the yarn 7 to the handle 6.

In assembling the device, the yarn is passed througha yoke 8 and the legs of the yoke then inserted into the grooves 13 until the yarn is compressed against the lower end of the handle 6, as shown in Fig. 2. The legs of the yoke 8 spring apart, by rea son of their inherent resiliency, and also by the pressure of the yarn confined between the legs of the yoke, so that the teeth of the yoke engage the inturned edges 12 of the ferrule members 9 and 10, and the yoke thereby held against withdrawal.

In order to remove the yoke and the mop material from the handle, it will ordinarily be desirable to loosen the nut of the bolt 11, so as to permit the ferrule members 9 and 10 to be sprung apart and allow the teeth of the yoke to pass the inturned flanges 12 ot' the ferrules.

The metal parts may be covered by a skirt or hood 14 of cloth, whose upper edge is clamped between the upper portion of the ferrule members 9 and 10 and the mop socket, its lower portion being tied in place by some of the mop strings, as shown more clearly in Fig. 1. The metal parts are thus prevented from coming into contact with and marring furniture.

In Fig. 5, I have shown a ferrule 15 formed of a single sheet of metal and substantially encircling the mop handle 6. The ferrule is held in position by a bolt 11' and has longitudinally extending sockets for the reception of a yoke 8, as in the case of the structure of Figs. 1 to 4. Loosening of the nut on the bolt 11 will permit the edges of the ferrule 15 to be spread apart sufficiently to allow convenient withdrawal of the yoke 8".

The side openings in the ferrules, as shown in Fig. 3, are wide enough to permit insertion of a tool, such as a screw driver, to press the ends of the yoke 8 out of engagement with the flanges 12 when it is desired to withdraw such yoke, and I may prefer to have the longitudinal recesses of such dimension that it will not be necessary to loosen the bolt 11 preliminary to withdrawal of the yoke, since it sufficient clearance is provided within the longitudinal recesses or grooves, the legs of the yoke can be pressed inwardly far enough to clear the flanges 12.

The arrangement of the ferrule and yoke legs in such manner that the legs lie within grooves, or between the ferrule and the handle 6, is such that there are few projecting parts upon which the mop strings may catch when the mop is in use. The skirt or shield 14 also functions to prevent the mop strings from being caught and held in inoperative position. It will be understood that the skirt 14 may be made of mate rial other than cloth and that the holder 8 may be of various other forms and conagainst movement longitudinally of the hendle and the ferrule when the hell; is tightened.

2. Mop structure comprising :1 handle, e ferrule, a yoke for holding mop material and connected to said ferrule. and :1 skirt having its upper edge clamped between the upper edge of the ferrule and the handle and its lower portion draped to conceal Said ferrule.

In testimony whereof I, the mid JAMES M. MA'Ys, have hereunto set my hzmd.

JAMES M. MAYS.
