UNITED STATES PATENT QFFICE 7 Claims.

This invention relates to display stands and the like. It has for one of its specific objects the provision of a new and improved means whereby shelves may be quickly and easily mounted on a supporting post in various positions with respect to each other, to accommodate articles of 'different sizes, without the use of tools and by unskilled persons.

lAnother specific object is to provide a post and a shelf bracket comprising very few parts that may be cheaply manufactured and that will serve to strongly support the shelves on which the articles are placed.

The preferred embodiments of the invention are illustrated by the accompanying drawings wherein Fig. 1 is a fragmentary view illustrating the union of the post and two brackets in one embodiment; Fig. 2, a vertical section on the line 2--2 of Fig. 1; Fig. 3, a horizontal section on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1; Fig. 4, a horizontal section illustrating the union of the one bracket and the post in another embodiment; Fig. 5, a fragmentary side view illustrating the union of one bracket and the post in another embodiment; Fig. 6, a fragmentary horizontal sectional view illustrating the union of two brackets and the post in another embodiment; Fig. 7, a horizontal sectional view illustrating the union of one bracket and the post in another embodiment; Fig. 8, a fragmentary sectional elevation of the embodiment shown by Fig. 7; Fig. 9, a vertical sectional view on the line 9 9 of Fig. 1; and Fig. 10, an elevation of a display stand with a number of brackets and shelves mounted thereon.

Referring to Fig. 10 of the drawings, it will be seen that the display stand has an upright post 1, having therein a plurality of vertically spaced openings 2, for the reception of the pins which support the brackets. The shelves 3, 4, 5 and 6 may thereby be placed at different relative elevations to accommodate articles of various sizes.

Referring to the embodiment illustrated by Figs. 1 to 3 and 9, the shelf bracket '7 comprises a single piece of metal bent into a substantially rectangular shape and having hooked arms 8, and shoulders 9. The arms 8 are adapted to be inserted between the bars 10 of the post into engagement with the pin 11, to bear upwardly and outwardly against the latter. The shoulders 9, are adapted to bear downwardly and inwardly t within the latter. The meeting ends of two shelves 12 may be joined by placing the plates 13 thereof in the bracket 7 as shown by Fig. 9. The embodiment shown in Fig. 4 is substantially the same as that just described, except that each of the hooked arms 14 of the bracket 15 -rest against the post bars 10.

y In the embodiment shown by Fig. 5, the hooked arms 16 extend upwardly and inwardly toward the post into engagement with the pin 11, to hold 'c5 bracket 17 in a position at substantially a right angle to the post 10.

In Fig. 6, the brackets 18 have shoulders formed by end bars 19, and are provided with arms 20, that embrace the post 21, and engage the pin 22. y0 In this embodiment, as in the other embodiment, the arms 20, bear upwardly and outwardly against the pin 22, and the shoulders 19 bear downwardly and inwardly against the post 20.

In the embodiment shown in Figs. 7 and 8, the arms 22 of the bracket 23 extend at substantially a right angle to the post 24, to engage the pin 25, and the bracket 23 itself extends downwardly and outwardly from the post 24, to support the shelf 26, which has outwardly and downwardly presented extension, 26-A, to support the articles thereon.

It will be obvious that in each embodiment the bracket mounted is on and removed from the post, as a unit; that the parts may be cheaply manufactured and easily assembled without the use of tools; and that when assembled the parts afford a strong support for the shelves which may be placed in various relative positions to afford the desired display of the articles, and to make them easily accessible.

I claim:

1. In a display stand, the combination with a post comprising a pair of spaced upright bars, and a pin disposed transversely of and supported by said post of a shelf bracket comprising a single piece of metal bent into a substantially rectangular shape and having hooked arms insertable between said bars into engagement with said pin to bear upwardly and outwardly against said pin, and having shoulders adjacent said arms to bear inwardly and downwardly against said bars.

2. In a display stand, the combination with a post comprising a pair of spaced upright bars, and a pin disposed transversely of and supported by said post, of a pair of shelf brackets, each comprising a single piece of metal bent into a substantially rectangular shape and having hooked arms insertable between said bars into A engagement with said pin to bear upwardly and outwardly against said pin, and having shoulders adjacent said arms to bear inwardly and downwardly against said bars, each arm of each of said brackets fitting snugly and transversely against one arm of the other of said brackets, and said brackets being interchangeable.

3. In a display stand, the combination with a post, and a pin disposed transversely of and supported by said post, of a shelf bracket comprising a single piece of metal bent into a substantially rectangular shape and having hooked arms to extend upwardly and inwardly toward said post to engage said pin and to bear upwardly and outwardly against said pin, and having shoulders to bear downwardly and inwardly against said post to support said bracket at substantially a right angle to said post.

4. In a display stand, the combination with a. post, and a pin disposed transversely of and supported by said post, of a shelf bracket comprising a single piece of metal bent into a substantially rectangular shape and having hooked arms to extend substantially at a right angle to said post to engage said pin and to bear upwardly and outwardly against said pin, and shoulders to bear downwardly and inwardly against said post, to support said bracket in a position extending outwardly and downwardly from said post.

5. In a display stand, the combination with a post and a pin disposed transversely of and supported by said post, of a shelf bracket having hooked arms to engage and bear upwardly and outwardly against said pin and shoulders to bear downwardly and inwardly against said post, said bracket being mountable on and removable from said post as a unit.

6. In a display stand, the combination with a post and a pin disposed transversely of and supported by said post, of a pair of shelf brackets onopposite sides of said post, each of said brackets having hooked arms to engage and bear upwardly and outwardly against said pin and shoulders and to bear inwardly and downwardly against said post, and being mountable on and removable from said post as a unit, the arms of said brackets being constructed and arranged to lie side by side, and said brackets being interchangeable.

7. In a display stand, the combination with a post and a pin supported by and projecting transversely from opposite sides of said post of a shelf bracket comprising a single piece of metal bent into a substantially rectangular shape to bear inwardly and downwardly against said post, and having hooked .arms to embrace said post and to engage and bear upwardly and outwardly against said pin.
