Figure 13is a fragmentary front eleva tion of the detail of Figure 12. I

In the drawings, wherein for the purpose of illustration are shown preferred and modified embodiments of the invention, the letter A may generally designate the improved fire extinguisher holding construction, which may consist of a bracket 13 attachable in ,a stationary relation to a'wall C or the like. A fireextinguisher body attachingmeans D isv provided for cooperation with the bracket B in support of the fire extinguisher E. If desired, amodified form of bracket B may bev provided forv attaching to a steering column For the like, and in lieu of the means 1) special permanently secured bracket engaging lugs G may be provided upon the fire extinguisher E, as shown 1n Figures 12 and 3 of the drawings. 1

Referring to the bracket B, the same may be formed of pressed steel metal, preferably including the vertically elongated plate 15, having laterally bulged enlargements 17 and 18 at the lower and upper ends thereof, with .a handle engaging arm attaching shank 19 extending'from. the top thereof. The body 15 99 is peripherally provided with a rearwai'dly extending flange 20, adapted to space the body normally from the attaching surface C to which it is connected. Above and below each of the enlargements 17 and 18 it is preferred to provide openings 22 adapted to receive s'crews, 'nails, or the like, by means of which the bracket may be attached to the support C.

In each of theenlargements l7 and 18, it 108 the drawings, so that the sockets or openings v extinguisher 2" between thefianges 24 and 25 taper with a decreasing width downwardly. The flanges 2i and 25 are bent in a transverse converging relation from the plate to the free edges thereof, as shownin Figure 45, so that.

the sockets 26 in addition to tapering with a decreasing W1 dth downwardly, increases 1n width from the front edges ofthefiangcs 24 and to the plate 15, as can be seen from Figure of the drawings. This provides a dove-tail socket having a tapered width thru the height thereof. These flanges 2% and 25 are of'course provided on each of the enlargements 17 and 18 of the bracket plate, so that upper and lower dove-tailed sockets are provided on the bracket B with the upper ends thereof open, and adapted-toreceive the tapered lugs 30 and 31 respectively of the means D to be subsequently described.

A holding arm 35 is provided for the "handle 36 of the fire extinguisher, uphold the same inoperative. This arm 35 includes an upwardly extending substantially shaped body portion 36*, having the lower end thereof provided with laterally extendingfianges 37 which areriveted at 38 to the front face of the shank 19 of the attaching bracket B, as shown in Figure 1. The plane of the body 36 extends normal to the plane of the bracket-B, and the arm body 36 extends above the top edge of the bracket plate 15, as shown in Figure 1. At its'free end the arm 35 is provided with substantially L- shaped lateral extensions 39 at opposite sides of the body 36, as shown in Figures 1 and 3 of the drawings, and present horizontalfront surfaces disposed in a plane forwardly of the plane of the bracket plate 15, and adapted to engage the T-shaped handle 36 of the fire E,as shown in Figures 1 and 7 of the drawings, to hold'the handle normally inoperative during support of the fire extinguisher upon the improved bracket construction. j

Tie the ontinguisherE is of the usual type, having a cylindrical shapedlcasing body 40, from the upper wall of'which the, T shaped handle 36 extends.-

Referring to the portion D of the bracket coi'istruction which isattachable to the extinguishercasing 4:0, for cooperation with the wall'supported bracket B, the same preferably includes an elongated body strip 45, the upper and lowerends of which may'be'enlarged and provided with the lugs30 and'31 thereon for detachable receptionin-the dovetailed sockets of the bracket B. At the upper and lower ends the divergent attaching flanges 46 are provided, transversely apertured, and adapted to receive attaching bolts 7 1T therethrough. A split band 48 is adaptwalls 51 and 52,-which converge downwardly from the upper edges thereof to the lower edges thereof, and'diverge from their attachment with the strip or body 45 outwardly to the front plate 52- which connects the same.

Thus, the lugs 30 and 31 are formed to fit into the upper and lower sockets of the bracket B, with a dove-tai-led"connection.

' As to the application of the bracket D upon the fire extinguisher casing 40, the bands 4.8 are clamped about the casingetO, and it is preferred that the casing 40 v have spaced'annular beads thereabout, to receive the bands LStherebetween, a-sshown in Figure 1, to hold thesame in place. Theibolts 47 may be adjusted to clamp the bands tightly about the casing 40, and it is to be noted that the lugs 30 and 31 thus project transversely from a side of the casing 40.

As to the application of the fire extinguishor upon the bracket B, it is merely necessary to place the'lugs 30 and 31 at'the open upper ends above the female sockets provided on the bracket B, and move the extinguisher E downwardly until the lugs 30 and 31 are seated in the sockets of the bracket B. The lugs are then held in thesockets so. as to prevent dropping of thefire extinguisher E or the pulling of the same awayfrorn the bracket B ina. right angled relation therewith, it

being necessary to lift the extinguisher E in a vertical direction, or an upward direction along the bracket B to. effect detachmentth erefrom. Itis to be notedthat when the lugs 30 and 31 are in their sockets of the bracket B the handle 36 at its upperT-shaped end engages against the angle pieces 39 of-the arm 35, to hold the handle 36 inoperative.

' Vith the modified form of bracket B5, the same reference characters as above given for the form of b *acket B apply to the similar parts which appear inthe bracket B, so far as applicable. The bracket B. distinguishes over the'bracket B in that the plate or-strip 15 thereof at the upper and lower ends thereofis prov-ided'with clamping bands 70, having adjusting bolts 71 for-drawing the ends hereof together. The stripbody 15" is of courseprovided with the upper and lower sets of flanges 24' and 25, preferably struck integral therewith, which converge forwardly anddownwardly to provide the dovetailed" sockets 2G in the same nature andfor the same reason as the SOckets26; of the form llli') of bracket B above described. The handle as shown in Figure? of the drawings, and,

. this positions the sockets 26 to receive the lugs 30 and 31 of the extinguisher casing clamping bracket D above described. V

In lieu. of providing the special casing bracket D, the lugs G may be welded or permanently secured a part of the casing 40 of the extinguisher E, as shown in Figures 12 and 13 of the drawings. These lugs G are preferably stamped of sheet metal, comprising the side walls 80 and 81 having a connecting trout wall 82. The side walls 80 and 81 converge transverse to the jvall 82 and away therefrom, and. also converge downwardly along the wall 82, as. shown in Figures 12 and 13 of the drawings, and it is preferred that alongthe edges of the flanges 80'and 81, remote from the wall 82, the same are outwardlv flanged at 85, which may be welded,

riveted, or otherwise secured in any approved manner to the Walls of thecasing of the fire extinguisher, as shown in Figures 12 and 13. f V

From the foregoing description of this invention it is apparent that a novel bracket.

structure for supporting hand operated fire extinguishers has been provided, which may be economically manufactured in a compact relationship 01": parts, for efficiently supporting a fire extinguisher in an inoperative position, where the same may be readily grasped and detached merely by an upward and outward pull. Vibration and settling tend to dispose the fire extinguisher in a more secured and eiiicient bracket supported relation upon the wall or column attachedbracket.

Various changes in the shape, size, and arrangen'ient of parts may be made to the forms of invention herein shown and described, without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the claims.

We claim: I g
