Description

March 26, 1935. o. H. WiLKE I COMPARTMENT ASSEMBLY FOR DISPLAY TABLES Filed June 12, 1935 Patented Mar. 26, 1935 was ooivrPARTMnN'r ASSEMBLY Fort DISPLAY ,LTABLES I Otto woke,- Lakewood, ohm Application June. 12, 1933, Serial No. erase:

partitions may be readily and rigidly connected with the least .possible effort.

A further object of the. invention 151m provide a structure of thischar'acter which willbe characterized by the utmost simplicity.

A still further object. of the invention is to provide a compartment assembly wherein the partitions employed will be so formed thatbending thereof will be largely, prevented.

Other and incidental objects, not particularly mentioned in the foregoing, will be apparent during the course of the. following description;

In the drawing, Figure 1 is a fragmentary. perspective view showingportions of.my compart ment assembly, 1

Figure 2 is an enlarged fragmentary perspec tive view showing'the connecting clip employed and the end portion, of a partition as it would appear about to be placed within'the clip,

Figure 3 is an enlarged fragmentary horizontal sectional view taken on the line 33 of Figure l and looking in the direction indicated by the arrows, and

Figure 4 is an enlarged perspective view of a modified form of clip.

Referring now more particularly to the accompanying drawing whereinlike numerals of reference designate like parts throughout the several views, the numerals 1, 2 and 3 indicate the side walls and end wall of my improved compartment assembly. It is to be understood that, while I have shown the walls, 1, 2 and 3 as the boundary in the present instance, said walls may be of any length. The walls are formed of strips of sheet metal and are provided with circular reinforcing beads 4 at their upper end portions. The upper end portions are, of course, rolled to define these beads. The lower portions of the walls 1, 2 and 3 are bent laterally and inwardly to define flanges 5.

Associated with the walls is a connecting clip which is indicated in general by the numeral 6. As best seen in Figure 2 of the drawing, the clip is formed from sheet metal and bent into shape and, as will be observed, a typical clip is provided with arms 7 and 8 which are adapted to extend I I a Qlainis "(Cl."312140) throughout thegreater. portion or" the height of walls 1, 2 and 8. The arms 7 and.8: are connected at their upper ends by an enlarged bight portion 9 which is adapted slidably to engage the bead 4 of the walls. It will be understood that the arms 7 and 8 of the clip are disposed closelyto over-1 lie a portion of one of the walls so that, while the clipmay be shifted longitudinally'on the wall, it will not become displaced therefrom.

Struck out from the arms '7 and 8, medially thereof, are anchoring jaws 10 which are formed of offset flanges 11 and 12 whichhave theirinner edges terminating in close spaced relation to define a longitudinal slot 13. The oifset portions of the flanges will define shoulders lland 12'. The flanges 11 and 12 extend outwardly so that their outer faces will be in the same vertical plane with the plane defined'between-the free edge'of the flange .5 andLthe outermostportion ofthe bight portion '9. A number or" the clips 6 are employed, the number'to be governedentirely by the amount. of the partions to be used. However, they are all of identical construction and the above description would'apply to'all of said clips. Extendingbetween the walls 1 and 3-and in parallelrelation to the wall 2 is a partition 14 which is of Substantially the sameconstruction as the walls 1 and 2v and is formed of light material. The partition 14 is rolled at its upper edge to provide a bead l5 and is bent laterally at its lower edge to define a flange 16. The bead and flange will cooperate to prevent bending of the partition which might be caused by great strain. Formed on the end portion of the partition 14, medially of its height, are oppositely disposed tongues 1'7. These tongues are bent to a right angle with respect to the partition 14 and a straight angle with respect to each other. The tongues 17 are adapted to be retained behind the flanges 11 and 12 and within the confines of the shoulders 11 and 12'of the jaws 10, the end portion of the partition extending through the slot 13. The partition 14 will be retained rigidly in position by virtue of the fact that the bead 15 will abut the bight portion 9 of the clip and the edge of the flange 16 will overlie the flange 5 of the Wall 1. It will therefore be seen that the partition will be associated with the clip at three points so that will be provided.

A second partition 18 connects the partition 14 with the end wall 2 and clips 19 and 20 are employed for rigidly connecting said partition 18 .with said wall 2 and said partition 14, the clips a rigid connection son that the parts are 7 breaking or bending will be reduced to a minithe clip 6. It is, of course, to be understood that any number of partitions corresponding to the partitions 14 and. 18 may be employed, depending entirely upon the size of the compartments to be defined between the walls 1, 2 and 3.

It will, therefore, be seen that a merchant desiring to placeacompartment assembly into use would only have to secure the desired number of partitions in place. My improved compartment assembly is particularly meritorious for the reaformed of metal so that mum. The arrangement is very cheap and yet maybe made very attractive. It is, of course, to be understood that the height and other dimensions of the different parts may be varied to suit specific needs.

Referring now to the modification of the invention as shown in Figure 4 of the drawing, I employ a clip 21 whichis formed of. light weight metal and is provided with arms 22. and; 23, which walls are connected by a bight portion 24 attheir upper ends. Portions of the walls 22 and 2-3 are struck" outwardly to define ofiset flanges 25. and 26 which have their corresponding. inner edges terminating in spaced relation to. define a slot 27 Y which is adapted to receive the end edge. of a glass partition. The. clip 21' is. particularly adapted for use with glass walls and partitions used for display purposes, but it will be observed that the purpose of the clips as shown in the modification is identical, with the clip as shown in the preferred form. l It'i's believed that from the foregoing it will be seen that -I have provided a. compartment assembly which will be practical and highly eflicientin use as well as cheap in manufacture.

Having thus described the invention, I claim: 1 1. A compartment assembly including, a wall having a bead alongits upper edge and a, flange extending transverselt from its lower edge, a clip slidabl'e onthe wall andvhaving a bight, portion engaging the bead, said clip having flanges struck out to define a slot, and a partition connected with the clip andhaving tongues adapted to look behind the flanges, said partition having a bead along its upper edge abutting the bight tending between certain of portion of said clip and a flange extending transversely from its lower edge and abutting the fiange of the wall whereby said partition will be retained in angular relation to said wall.

2. A compartment assembly including walls each havinga bead along its upper edge and a side flange along its lower tition having a bead along its upper edge and a side flange along its lower side, and clips. for removably connecting the partition with said walls, each clip being disposed in straddling engagement with a wall and having a bight fitting about the bead of the wall and depending arms bearing against side faces of the wall, one arm having offset jaws extending transversely of the arm in facing relation to each other with their free ends spaced from each other and disposed in the plane of the outer side edge of the flange of the wall,

said partition having end portions fitted between free ends of the jaws of said clips and provided with side tongues engaged back of the jaws to hold the partition connected with the clips with the bead and flange of the partition bearing against the bight of the clip and flange of the wall. l

3. A clip for compartment assemblies includingparallel arms spaced from each other and connected at their upper ends by an enlarged bight having a diameter greater than the distance between the arms, said clip having tongues cut from its arms and extending transversely thereof in facing relation to each other, said tongues being bent outwardlyfrom the arms and then towards each other and again outwardly and towards each other to form jaws of their free end portions outwardly offset from the arms and extending substantially parallel thereto. in ap proximately the planesof the sides of the bight and terminating in spaced relation to each other to forma slot between thev jaws whereby a partition may havev an "end portion engaged in the slot with its. upper end. bearing. against the adjacent side of the bead and anchoring elements projecting: from opposite sidesof the. partition engaged back of the jaws to hold the partition in engagement with the clip. i
