Claims.

This invention relates to improvements in tool securing devices and pertains particularly to a device designed for securing tools against theft or unauthorized use.

5 The primary object of the present invention is to provide a relatively simple device by means of which a number of workmens tools may be left at the site of a job from one day to the next, without danger of having the same stolen or removed,

the device being of a character whereby the several tools may be placed together thereon and secured by a single fastening element.

The invention broadly contemplates the provision of a bracket like element which is designed to be secured to a suitable support and to have several tools such, as picks, axes or the like, suspended therefrom, and a hasp like arm which, when moved to a predetermined position relative to the bracket will secure the several tools against removal and which may also be employed for retaining tools having ringed or apertured handles, such as spades or shovels, and which is designed to be secured in position by a single locking element. Means is also provided in association with the hasp for engaging and securing smaller implements such, for example, as rock or coal drills.

The invention will be best understood from a consideration of the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification, with the understanding, however, that the invention is not conned to any strict conformity with the showing of the drawing but may be changed or modified so long as such changes or modifications mark no material departure from the salient features of the invention as expressed in the appended claims.

In the drawingz- Y Figure 1 is a view in side elevation of the device embodying the present invention, portions of the' same being broken away.

Figure 2 is a view in top plan on the device.

Figure 3 is a section taken on the line 3-3 of Figure 2.

Referring now more particularly to the drawing, the numeral I indicates generally the xed portion of the present device which may be referred to broadly as a supporting bracket. This supporting bracket comprises a back plate 2 with which is integrally connected to extend forwardly therefrom the open frame 3 having the sides 4 and the cross connecting forward portion or bar 5. The plate 2 is cut away at the central portion of the top edge, as indicated at 6, and disposed in this cut away portion 6 is an end of the horizontal portion 1 of a bent hasp, which is indicated generally by the numeral 8, the end of this portion of the hasp is pivotally secured in the recess by a pin 20.

The outer end portion of the bent hasp is indicated generally by the numeral 9 and normally assumes the vertical position shown in Figure 1. Adjacent its free end, the portion 9 of the hasp is provided with a slot I0 to receive a staple Il, which is secured to the outer face of the bar 5.

Fo-rmed, preferably integrally, upon the inner side of the horizontal portion I of the hasp is an arm I2 which merges into the plate I3, which has a relatively broad free edge, which is brought into opposition with the forward face of the plate 2 when the hasp is in operative or locking position and which is provided with a pair oi recesses I4 disposed to lie in planes at opposite sides of the portions 'I of the hasp as shown in Figure 2. Due to the fact that the arm I2 and plate I3 are disposed obliquely of the portion 'I of the hasp, the plate is swung into the opposed relation with the plate 2 in the manner described when the hasp is coupled with the staple I I.

The plate 2 also has formed integrally therewith the two lugs or posts I5 which project forwardly therefrom and which, as shown in Figure 3, lie outside of the recesses I4 of the plate I3.

Figure l illustrates the manner in which the present device may be employed for securing a group of tools, such as might be used by a miner, in which group is shown an auger or bit I6, a pair of picks I'I, an axe I8, and a pair of shovels, the handles I9 of which are all that are shown.

'Ihe handles I9 of the shovels are of the type having an opening or hand grip portion at the ends so that these are secured by passing the free end of the hasp 8 through these handles. The picks and axe are secured by extending the handles downwardly through the frame 3 when the hasp is raised and two augers of the type shown may be secured in position by placing the same vertically against the face of the plate 2 while the hasp is raised so that the threads will lie above and upon an adjacent lug I5. When the hasp is then swung down into locking position, the securing plate I3 will assume the position shown in Figure 1, so as to locate a shank portion of a bit in a recess I4.

It will thus be seen that the tools may be securely held after a lock is connected with the staple I I in the manner shown, as it will be impossible for anyone to remove the picks or axe from the frame 3 or take out the augers or bits I6 or remove the handles I9 of the shovels or spades. Angers or bits of the type commonly employed in drilling coal and stone normally have a handle at the end opposite the threaded portion and also a nut or coupling between the handle and the threaded portion and when they are placed in position in the holder, the nut of each will be located upon the opposite side of the plate I 3 from the lug l5 against which the threads position.

I claim:-

1. A tool securing device comprising a bracket including an open frame designed to be horizontally mounted for the support of handled tools, a hasp having one end pivotally attached to the bracket above the frame portion and over one side thereof and having an outer angled portion adapted to be swung into a position across the opposite side of the frame from said pivot point to conne ay tool suspended from the frame, means for securing the outer end of the hasp to the forward portion of the frame, and means carried by the hasp and movable therewith relative to the bracket for securing a tool against the face of the bracket.

2. A tool securing device comprising a bracket including a plate and a perpendicularly related open frame, a hasp having two angularly related portions, means pivotally securing the free end of one of said portions of the hasp to said plate whereby the free end of the other portion of the hasp may be brought into abutting relation with the frame at a point remote from the plate, the pivotally attached portion of the hasp being in overlying relation with the frame when the free end of the said other portion is abutting the frame, means for locking the said other portion of the hasp to the frame, means carried by the hasp and swinging therewith relative to the plate for securing a tool against the plate, and elements fixed to the plate and co-acting with said last means.

3. A tool securing device comprising a bracket including a plate and a perpendicularly related open frame, a hasp having two angularly related portions, means pivotally securing the free end of one of said portions of the hasp to said plate whereby the free end of the other portion of the hasp may be brought into abutting relation with the frame at a point remote from the plate, the pivotally attached portion of the hasp being, when attached to the frame, in overlying relation with the frame, means for locking the said other portion of the hasp to the frame, and an arm secured to the hasp and having an edge disposed in opposed relation with the bracket plate when the hasp is secured to the frame, whereby the arm may maintain a tool in position against said plate.

4. A tool securing device comprising a bracket and an open frame perpendicularly related thereto, a hasp having two right angularly related portions, pivotal means securing the free end of the one portion to said plate whereby the said one portion may be brought into parallel relation with the frame and the other portion of the hasp may be brought into perpendicular relation to the plane of the frame and extend across the latter at a point remote from the plane, means for securing the hasp to the frame, and an arm integral with the pivotally attached portion of the hasp and carried thereby in a manner to have an end brought into opposed relation with the plate when the hasp is attached to the frame.

5. A tool securing device comprising a bracket and an open frame perpendicularly related thereto, a hasp having two right angularly related portions, pivotal means securing the free end of the one portion to said plate whereby the said one portion may be brought into parallel relation with the frame and the other portion of the hasp may be brought into perpendicular relation to the plane of the frame and extend across the latter at a point remote from the plane, means for securing the hasp to the frame, an arm integral with the pivotally attached portion of the hasp and carried thereby in a manner to have an end brought into opposed relation with the plate when the hasp is attached to the frame, said arm having the said end relatively broad and provided with recesses to receive tools disposed against the face of the plate, and means carried by the plate cooperating with the recess for maintaining the said tools in position against the plate.
