MOP wnmennj Application filed February 15, 1927. ser al no. 168,854.

This invention relates to mop wringers and has for an object to provide an improved construction over Patent No. 1,128,083, issued February 9, 1915. y 1

Another object of the invention to provide a mop wringer wherein the parts are simplified and wherein a quick action is secured. o a i A further object of the invention is to provide a mop wringer formed comparatively small and light and yet braced to properly withstand, the squeezing action when amop is being wrung.

'A further object, more specifically, is to provide a mop wringer whichyrnay be used in different places and particula-rly in position overhanging part of a bucket or tub whereby the water removed from the mop will fall by gravity back into the bucket or tub. i a

In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a perspective view of a mop wringer disclosing an embodiment of the invention. t

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view through Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 2 but showing the parts in their operated or closed position. v i y y y Figure 4 is a top planview of thestructure shown in Figure 1, the parts being shown open. 1 a

Figure 5 is a top plan view of the structure shown in Figure 1, the parts being shown closed or in an operated position.

Figure 6 is a detail fragmentary side view showing the co-action ofthe ends of the pressers or leaves and the means for actuat ing the same.

Figure 7 is a perspective view of orient the pressers or leaves.

Figure 8 is a detail sectional View through Figure 3 on line 8-8.

Referring to the accompanying drawings by numerals, 1 and 2 indicate the end plates which are of identical construction and which are connected together by suitable rods 3 and 4. Each of the plates is provided with a flange 5 which receives the ends of the perforated body 6, said body having the upper ends curled over the rod 4 as shown in Figure 2 while the lower part rests against the flanges 5. Flange 5 on each plate at the bottom is provided with a forwardly extending bracket or shoulder 7 having a suitable reinforcing web 8 whereby additional support is provided to take care of whatever pressuremay be brought to bear on a mop placed in the device. It will be noted that each of the platesl and2 is provided with an extension 9 which projects an appreciable distance above the body 6 whereby means are provided which will readily guide the respective racks 10 and 11. Each of the plates 1 and 2 is provided with a central slot 12in the lower part and a central slot 12 in the upper part, said slots; accommodating the bolts 13 and 14, which boltsfextend through the respective racks 10 aludll. These bolts act as means for holding the racks in place and also slide up and down in the slot-s12 and 12" so as to guide the racks as they function. Each rack at the lower end is provided with-laterally extending members 15 and 16, each member having a slot 17. The respective of the body 6 to the upper edge of said body and from a line parallel with the upper edge of the body the slots curve outwardly in opposite directions, By this construction and arrangement, the pressing sections 23, and 24 of the respective leaves 19 are moved I to one side as shown in Figure 2 when the parts are in their open or upper position and are inoved into the body 6 and from thence downwardly to the position shown in Fi ure 3 when moved to their fully operate {or closedfposition. In this way the operating parts ofthe presser bars are out of the way when'the mop is being inserted or removed 1 but move into position and perform their desired function when properly actuated.

The respective racks 1O and'11 are continually in, mesh with the fragmentary gears 25 and 26,'said gears being rigidly secured, to a shaft 27, which shaft has preferably an integral extension 28 which is arcshaped in cross section whereby the. handle 29 may be bolted thereto. Each of the gears 25 and 26 provided with a hub30 which projects through a suitable aperture in a guard plate 31. said guard plate being held in place by a suitable screw 32 extendingthrough a slot 33 in the gear 25. A similar structure is applied to gear 26 so that no additional description will be necessary.

' It will be noted that the guard plate 31 extends upwardly and downwardly from screw 32 and covers the teeth of the rack and gears at the point where they mesh so that the plate 31 acts to guide the parts and also acts to protect any one against accidentally injuring the fingers or hand. The extension 28 is formed near one end of the rod 27 while at the opposite end a spring 34 is provided acting on the lug 35 and end plate 1 for normally holding the parts in the position shown in Figure 1 andalso acting to return the parts to this position after having been moved to the position shown in Figure 3 and then released.

The device is adapted to beused in many places, as for instance, placed on the edge of a bucket or tub whereby the water forced from the mop will drain immediately back into the bucket or tub. When using a bucket having a straight edge, the edge fits into the notch 36 but when a bucket having a rolled edge is .used, the same fits into the notch 37wl1ile the finger 38 acts to brace the parts in position. A lug 39 is provided at the buttom of each of the plates 1 and 2, said lugs being provided to present additional surface designed to rest against the bucket so as not to injure the same.

In operation, the parts are normally left in the position shown in Figures 1 and 2. When in this position, the mop may be irserted with the handle substantially in a vertical position. The handle 29 o'f'thc device is then grasped and swung from the position shown in Figure 1 over to the position shown in Figure 3 or to as near the position shown in Figure 3 as possible. As handle 29 moves downwardly toward the posit-ion shown in Figure 3, the presser bars or leaves 19 will engage and press the mop downwardly against the bottom of the body 6 and during this pressing operation the water will flow through the openings in body 6. It is evident that considerable power may be used or any slight power as desired. After the pressing operation is over, handle 29 is released and spring 34 will quickly move the parts back to the position shown in Figure 1. It will be noted that the presser bars 19 are spaced somewhat apart as shown in Figure 3 and also that each of these bars is provided with a. notch 19 for presenting more space for accommodating the handle of the mop.

What we claim is:

1. A mop wringer comprising a perforated mop receiver, said receiver including a loraminous body and a pair of end plates, each of said end plates having parallel slots curving at their upper ends, a pair of presser bars, each bar having at each end a projection extending into said slots, each of said projections having a forwardly extending pin, a reciprocating rack carried by each end plate formed with downwardly and laterally extending slotted extensions accommodating said pins, and manually actuated means including fragmentary gears for ac tuating said racks whereby when said gears are actuated the presser bars will move into said receiver and downwardly toward the bottom and when actuated in the opposite direction will move upwardly and over to one side adjacent the upper part of the body.

2. A mop wringer comprising a toraminous mop receiving body including a pair of end plates, each of said end plates having upwardly extending projections each end plate having a pair of guiding slots formed at their upper ends with laterally extending sections and a pair of centrally positioned guiding slots, a pair of presser bars, each presser bar having extensions projecting into the first mentioned slots, a rack carried by each of said end plates formed at the lower end to co-act with said projections for moving the presser bars as the racks move, means extending through the respective racks and through the respective central slots for guiding the racks so that they will move in a straight line up and down. a gear member meshing with each rack, and a manually actuated handle for moving the respective gear members simultaneously.

3. A mop wringer comprising a mop receiver formed with a foraminous body and a pair of end plates, said end plates being formed with a plurality of guiding slots, a pair of presser bars having projections extending in certain of said slots, a rack slidingly mounted on each end plate, each of said racks having laterally extending projections, each projection having a slot therein adapted to receive art of the projection from said presser ars, a gear member meshing with each of said racks, means for guiding and covering the gear teeth at the point where they mesh, and a manually actuated member for actuating the gear members whereby the racks will be moved upwardly and downwardly and said presser bars will be moved into and out 01'' said body.
