SUPPORT FOR GQNNECTION COHDS OF ELECTRIC IRONS Filed June 4, 1929 z sneeuwman l Patented Sept. 2, 1930 PATENT-o FFicE WALTER V. ASH, OIF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA SUPPORT FOR CONNECTION CORDS OF ELECTRIC IRONS Application filed June 4, 1929. Serial No. 368,209.
My invention relates to supports for the eonnection cords of electric irons, that is to say, to a device adapted to support such connection cords whereby the same will be held 6 away from the articles being ironed, and also kept from becoming entangled during the various movements of the iron upon the ironing board or table.
The principal object of my invention is to provide a simple and efficient device for supporting the connection cord commonly used with an electric iron, whereby the cord will be kept free of entanglement, while at the same timeperfect freedom in the use of the iron will be permitted.
A further object of my invention is to provide such a device which will be inex nsive in character, and which may be readi y positioned when it is to be used.
The nature and characteristic features of my invention will be more readily understood from the following description, taken in connection withV the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, in which: Figure 1 is a perspective view of a device embodying the main features of my present invention, the same being shown in operative relationship with an electric iron, the cord for the. same, and an ironing board upon which the-iron 1s used;
Fig. 2 is an enlarged perspective view of the upper and lower portions of the device; Fig. 3 is a side elevation, partly in section, of the lower portion of the device;
Fig. 4 is a perspective View of the up'er portion of thedevice, the clamping mem er being removed Afor the purpose of better illustrating the 'peculiar shape of said upper portion; 1
Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig. 1, of a modified form of the invention, so constructedk and arranged as to be detachably mounted upon a wall of the room iu which itis used;
Fig. 6 is an enlarged perspective view of the upper and lower portions of the structure shown in Fig. 5;
Fig. 7 is a plan View of the lower portion of the structure shown in Fig. 5; and
Fig. 8 is a vertical section taken approxi- 5o mately on the line 8-8 of F ig. 7.
Referring now more particularly to Figs. 1 to 4 of the drawings, the device as there shown is adapted to be mounted upon the ironing board upon which the electric iron is` to be used. For such attachment, the lower portion of the device comprises a spring clamp member 10,.preferably made of a single piece of wire, and having two horizontal portions 11 adapted to engage the upper surface of the board, the wire being bent around at the rear ends of thehorizontal rtions 11 into another horizontal U-shape extension 12, which is adapted to engage the under surface of theboard. i
The front ends of the horizontal portions 11 are bent toward each other, as at 13, being then bent upwardly, as at 14, where the same meet, to provide a support for a tubular member 15 which is mounted thereon.
The tubular member 15 has mounted inV the upper portion thereof a coil spring 16, made of spring wire, preferably with the coils thereof closely wound and having such characteristics of resiliency that the coil spring 16 is normally maintained upright.
At the upper end of the coil spring 16, the wire of which the same is made extends forward horizontally, as at 17, .being then bentv and extending at right angles thereto in the same horizontal plane, as at 18, then being bent downwardly and extending vertically, as at 19, then being bent and extending horizontally, as at 20. At the end of the horizontal extension 2O the wire is bent upwardly, in a vertical direction, as at 2l.
It should here be noted that the parts 18, 19, 20 and 21, at the front end of the horizontal extension 17 of the spring wire, all lie in the same vertical plane.
By the foregoing arrangement, the horizontal portion 20 serves as a pintle, upon which is mounted a spring clip 22 of a well known construction, the same preferably comprising two wooden members 23 and 24, held together by means of a spring 25, which is so arranged that when the upper ends of the'members 23 and 24 are pressed toward each other, the jaws 26 and 27 will be separated.
The connection cord for the electric iron is gripped between the jaws 26 and 27 at aI suitable place along the length of the cord, so that the cord is held at all timesabove the surface of the ironing board.
It will be noted that as the electric iron is used, the coil spring 16 may be iieXed in any desired direction, so as to permit the utmost freedom of the iron, but when the tension on the same is released, the coil spring i6 will return to its normal upright position.
It will also be noted that the spring clip 22, while tree to move axially upon the project-ing portion of the coil spring upon which it is mounted. will, however'. he prevented i'rom becoming accidentally detached therefrom. by reason ot the vertical extensions 19 and 21, which serve to maintain it inthe proper position at. the forward end of the horizontal arm 19 provided at the upper end of the coil spring.
lt will also be noted that the connection cord will be secured in the springr clip 22 in such manner that there is no likelihood of the same becoming entangled with anyv portion of the support.
ln Figs. 5 to S of the drawings. there is shown a modified form of the invention. in which the coil spring 16 is supported in a portion 30 of a plate bracket 3l, which eX- tends angularly as at BQ. and vertically as .it 33.
The vertically extending portion 33 of the `ora cket 3l is adapted to he seated in a pocket portion 34 of a wall plate 35. plate 35 may he secured by screws 36, or any other suitable fastening means, to the wall of the room in which the electric iron is used.
lt will be seen that there is thus provided a simple, inexpensive. and etlicient'device for for supporting the connection cords of electric irons. which is so constructed and arranged as effectively to prevent entangling of the cord` which will keep the same away from the articles being ironed, and in Which likelihood of the cord becoming entangled in the support is eliminated.
I claim:
In a device for supporting the connection cords of electric irons and the like, a closely wound coil spring normally maintained in an upright position, a spring clip for Securing the connection cord carried at the upper end of said coil spring, the support for said spring clip comprising an integral extension of the wire of which the coil spring is made, said extension projecting forwardly in a horizontal direction, and being then bent to provide a horizontal portion upon which the spring clip is pivotally mounted and portions at right angles to said horizontal portion be.- tween which the spring clip is positioned.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto signed my name.
WALTER V. ASH.
