WIRE RACK Original Filed Sept. 8, 1931 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Invenior Patented May 22, 1934 UNITE WIRE RACK Andrew Biescar, Los Angeles, Calif.

Application September 8, 1931, Serial No.- 561,778

' Renewed October 17, 1933 2 Claims.

The present invention relates to a wire rack particularly for the reception of potato chips and has for one of its important objects to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a device of this character embodying a novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts whereby the same may be expeditiously folded when not in use thereby occupying a minimum of space.

Other objects of the invention are to provide a wire rack of the aforementioned character which will be simple in construction, strong, durable, light in weight, and which may be manufactured at low cost.

All of the foregoing and still further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from a study of the following specification, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein like characters of refer- 'ence designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein:

Figure 1 is a view in front elevation of the device erected and ready for use.

Figure 2 is a view in front elevation showing the device folded.

Referring now to the drawings in detail, it will be seen that the invention comprises a back which is designated generally by the reference numeral 1, said back including the vertically spaced, horizontal cross rods 2 terminating in the eyes 3 at their ends. The back 1 further includes the vertically disposed, parallel rods 4 which are connected in any suitable manner, as

by welding or soldering, at spaced points to the 5 cross rods 2.

The sides of the rack are designated generally by the reference numeral 5 and comprise the frames 6 which are mounted to swing in the eyes 3 of the cross rods 2 of the back 1. The

upper and lower ends of the frames 6 converge towards the front of the rack, said rack being open at its front. The sides 5 still further include the intermediate horizontal rods 7 connected, at their ends, to the vertical portions of the frames 6 by suitable means, such as soldering or welding. The sides 5 still further include the vertical parallel rods 8 which are connected by suitable means, as by soldering or welding, to the upper and lower portions of said frames 6 and to the intermediate rods 7.

Suporting legs designated generally by the reference numeral 9 depend from the frames 6 of the sides 5, said supporting legs being rigidly secured to the lower portions of the frames 6 by any suitable means, as by soldering or welding.

The legs 9 are arranged in pairs at the ends of the rack as clearly seen and each leg comprises a substantially vertically disposed portion 10 terminating in an upturned portion 11' disposed at an acute angle relative to the portion 10. The portion 11 of the pairs of legs 9 cross each other and are secured together by any suitable means, such as soldering or welding. The free end portions of the portions 11' of the rear legs arefixecl to the upper end portions of the portions 10 of the front legs and the free ends of the portions 11' of said front legsare fixed to the upper portions of the portions 10 of the rear legs. The front legs are of greater length than the rearlegs'. A This is best illustrated in Figure 2 of the draw- 76 ings.

The reference numeral 12 designates generally a substantially rectangular, rearwardly inclined removable bottom. Braces for the rear legs 9 are designated by the reference numeral 1' 3, said braces being rigidly mounted on the back I inwardly of the sides of the said back and extending downwardly and outwardly. 'I'he braces 13' comprise the vertically disposed substantially inverted U-shaped inner end portions 14 which are 86 rigidly secured at an intermediate point by suitable means, such as soldering or welding, to the lowermost cross rod 2 of the back 1, said U-shaped' portions projecting above said lowermost rod 2. At their other ends, the braces 13 terminate in the eyes 15 in which the portions 10 of the rear legs 9 are journaled. p v

The body 12 comprises a substantially rectan gular frame 16 of heavy wire" which is adapted to be supported on the lower portion ofthe back 1 by engaging the rear'port'ion of said frame 16 between the upwardly projecting substantially inverted U-shaped portions 14 of the b races13andthe vertical rods 4 of the back. In this manner *the rear end of the bottom 12 is supported on the back 1 and said bottom 12 is adapted to swing upwardly in abutting engagement with the back when the rack is folded. The reference numeral 17 designates supporting brackets which are fixed on the side portions of the frame 16 of the bottom 166 12 for engagement over the lower portions of the frames 6 of the sides 5 for supporting the forward portion of the bottom 12 in operative position. The brackets 17 may be disengaged from the frames 6 by simply swinging the front of the bottom 12 upwardly and rearwardly. The bottom 12 still further includes a cross rod 18 and the parallel rods 19 extending from front to rear of the frame 16 and fixed thereto and their ends and also fixed to the cross rod 18.

The reference numeral 20 designates supporting clips which are mounted on the upper portions of the back 1 and sides 5, said clips each comprising a length of resilient wire coiled and 5 having its ends rigidly secured to the back or sides. The articles to be held by the clips 20 are inserted between the convolutions of said clips.

In use, the rear portion of the bottom 12 is supported by the back 1 and the front portion of said bottom is supported by the sides 5 through the medium of the brackets 17. The bottom 12, in turn, when in operative position, prevents inwardly swinging movement of the sides 5 on the back 1 and the brackets 17 also prevent outl5 ward swinging movement of said sides. When it is desired to fold the rack the bottom l2 is swung upwardly and rearwardly against the back 2 after which the sides 5 with the supporting legs 9 thereon may be swung inwardly and rearwardly 20 against the upturned bottom 12, one of the sides 5 overlapping the other, as clearly seen in Figure 2 of the drawings. If necessary or desirable the bottom 12, when the rack is to be folded, maybe detached and disposed against the back 1 with the ends of said bottom disposed uppermost and lowermost, the lower end being engaged behind the substantially inverted U-shaped portions 14 of the braces 13 for retention thereby. It is also illustrated in Figure 2 of the drawings. It will be 39,, readily apparent that the rack, when folded, will occupy a very small space.

It is believed that the many advantages of a device in accordance with this invention will be readily understood and although the preferred 3 5 embodiment of the invention is as illustrated and described, it is to be understood that changes in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to which will fall within the scope of the 4Q, invention as claimed. What is claimed is: 1'. A foldable wire rack comprising a back including Vertically spaced, horizontal cross rods, said back further including vertical, parallel rods id fixed to the cross'rods at spaced points, eyes on '"the ends of the cross rods, sides mounted for swinging movement in a horizontal plane on the back and comprising frames having vertical rear portions journaled in the eyes, the sides further 5% including rods mounted on the frames, front and rear supporting legs fixed to the lower portions of the frames of the sides and depending therefrom, said supporting legs including substantially vertical portions, braces mounted on the back,

5,5,,said braces comprising substantially inverted U- shaped end portions fixed to intermediate portions of the lowermost cross rod of the back and portions extending downwardly and outwardly from said inverted U-shaped end portions, eyes on the outer ends of the braces, the vertical portions of the rear supporting legs being journaled in the last named eyes, the substantially inverted Ushaped portions of the braces projecting above said lowermost cross rod of the back, and a bottom removably mounted on the back and the sides, said bottom comprising a substantially rectangular frame having its rear members engageable between the substantially inverted U-shaped portions of the braces and the vertical rods of the back. for supporting said frame on the back, and brackets on the frame of the bottom engageable with the bottom portions of the frames of the sides for supporting said bottom on the sides.
