SIGN HOLDER FOR CANS ETC Filed Dec. 17, 1935 J [11 Van/0r George ZZIIbUS/Y Q A? W W J5 15 14 Patented June 2, 1936 UNHTEE fiTATES PATENT OFFICE 8 Claims.

My invention retates to a detachable device which may be secured to cans or containers, or the like which have a bead at both the bottom and top and this device forms a holder for advertising notices, price tags, or the line.

An object of my invention is the construction of a holder which may be suitable for a large number of sizes of cans or containers, that is, cans or containers which vary considerable in height and also in shape to accommodate round, oval or rectangular cans.

A further project of my invention is forming the holder in the form of a resilient strap with a hook at its lower end to engage the lower bead of a can and a slidable hook preferably secured to a collar on the holder strap which may engage the upper bead of the can. The top of the holder strap is provided with a supporting structure for mounting advertising cards, price labels, or the like.

A further object of my invention is constructing the hooks with sharpened prong points so that these may be caught into the lower and top surface of a card board box and the like, .such boxes usually do not have beads, but the sharpened hooks may be embedded in the material of the box without completely perforating the box cover and thus securely attach the device for the support of price cards or the like.

My invention is illustrated in connection with the accompanying drawing in which:

Fig. 1 is a front perspective view of a can with my holder attached thereto.

Fig. 2 is a rear perspective view of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is an edge View of the holder taken in the direction of the arrow 3 of Fig. 4.

Fig. 4 is an elevation taken in the direction of the arrow 4 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of my invention as applied to a cardboard box.

Referring first to Figs. 3 and 4 the sign holder assembly designated by the numeral I I has a resilient metal strap I2 and preferably of equal width the major portion of its length. This strap has a slight bend I3 forming an obtuse angle. The strap terminates at the lower edge I4 from which edge extends a central upturned hook I5. Slidably mounted on the strap is a collar I6 which preferably has a fairly snug sliding fit. This collar is preferably formed of a metal band bent around the strap and having the two ends meeting at the back as indicated at I? (Fig. 2). A downturned hook I8 is constructed on the front of the band, preferably at its lower edge.

The upper end of the strap has a holder I9 which has two parallel front fingers 20 which are preferably in the same plane as the major portion of the strap I2, a pair of longitudinal slits 2I and a tongue 22. This tongue is bent rearwardly by having a shoulder bend 23 at its lower edge. The tongue and fingers are preferably formed of resilient metal in order to grip a card in the manner hereunder detailed.

The holder device is attached to a can indicated by the numeral 24 in the following manner:

A can must have beads 25 and 26 at the lower end and at the top. The hook I5 engages the bottom bead 25. The strap I2 is then fitted snuggly against one side of the can or container and the collar I6 is moved downwardly until the hook I8 engages the upper head 26. This action of attaching both the lower and the upper hooks causes a flattening of the angular bend I3 and on account of the resiliency of the strap the hooks are held in firm engagement with the lower and the upper beads. The sign or advertising card 27 may then be engaged in the holder I9. The lower edge 28 of the card fits against the shoulder bend 23. The tongue 22 engages the rear side of the card and the fingers 20 the front. Thus, the advertising card or price card is securely held in the holder on account of the resiliency of the tongue and the fingers and the holder is securely attached to the can or container.

It is preferable to make the hooks I5 and I8 somewhat triangular in shape, as shown, and have these with sharpened points, thus forming a lower and an upper prong, thus when my invention is used in connection with a box, designated by the numeral 35 in Fig. 5, the lower pronged hook I5 engages the underside 3B of the box, the upper sharpened or pronged hook I8 engages the upper side 31 of the box. Usually boxes do not have beads at their peripheral edges, but the prongs may be forced into the material of the box sufiiciently to properly support the metal strip I2. It is not necessary that the box he completely perforated by the hooks.

Various changes may be made in the details of construction without departing from the scope of the invention as defined by the appended claims.

I claim:

1. A sign holder comprising an elongated metal strap having a hook at its lower end, said strap having an obtuse angular bend, a second hook slidable on the strap, the said hooks adapted to engage the beads on the bottom and top of a can and means on the upper end of the strap for Lil supporting a sign, the strap at the obtuse angular bend being adapted to engage the outside wall of a can.

2. A sign holder as claimed in claim 1, the means for supporting a sign comprising a pair of parallel fingers and a tongue to hold the sign between the fingers and the tongue.

3. A sign holder comprising an elongated metal strap having a hook bend laterally on one end, a collar slidable on the strap and having a downturned hook thereon, the said hooks being adapted to engage beads on the bottom and the top of a can, the strap having an obtuse angular bend, said angular portion being adapted to engage the outside wall of the can and a holder device on the upper end of said strap.

4. A sign holder as claimed in claim 3, the holder device comprising a pair of side fingers formed on the upper marginal portions of the strap, a tongue having a bend forming a shoulder,

the tongue and the fingers being separated by slits, the shoulder being adapted to engage the lower edge of a card and the fingers and tongue to engage the front and back of the card.

5. A sign holder comprising an elongated strap terminating at the lower edge, an upturned hook secured to the lower edge, a collar slidable on the strap and having a downturned hook thereon, the hooks being adapted to engage a lower and an upper bead of a can, the strap having an obtuse angular bend adjacent the lower hook, the said bend being adapted to engage the outside wall of the can and a sign holding device secured to the upper end of the strap.

6. A sign holder as claimed in claim 5, the sign holding device comprising a pair of front fingers on the side margins of the strap and in the same plane as the strap, a tongue separated from the fingers by a pair of longitudinal slits, the tongue having a bend forming a shoulder and the said tongue being parallel to the fingers but spaced to one side thereof, the said shoulder being adapted to engage the lower edge of a card, the fingers the front surface and the tongue the rear surface.

7. A sign holder as claimed in claim 5, the lower and upper hooks each having a sharpened point adapted to engage the lower and upper covers of a cardboard container.

8. A sign holder comprising an elongated strap having a lower hook with a sharpened prong, a slidable collar hav-ing'an upper hook with a downwardly turned sharpened prong, the hooks being adapted to engage over beads at the top and bottom of a container, or the prongs of the hooks being adapted to engage in bottom and top portions of a cardboard box and a sign holder secured to the upper part of the strap.
