(Cl. 248-309) My invention relates to brackets, and more Fig. 3 is a frontelevation of the bracket .per se, particularly to a bracket adapted to be afiixed to Fig. 4 is a plan view thereof, an ashpit, fence, or other fixture of a homestead, Fig. 5 is a vertical section on the line 55 of for supporting a garbage container or the like.

It includes 50 throughouta body portion 20, bail 2|, and a lid 22 equipped In the draw with a handle 23. Fig. l is a front elevation of my bracket Th manner of mounting the bracket on a mounted on a fixture with the container in place, fixture is so obvious from an inspection of the Fig. 2 is a side elevation of Fig. 1, drawing, it will not be described in detail. At- 55 tention however, is directed to Fig. 4, wherein the circle shown in broken lines indicates the outer periphery of the container. It will be noted that the bracket is so designed that the inner peripheries of components 1, 8, and [2 are tangent to an imaginary circle whose diameter is smaller than that of the outer periphery of the container.

When therefore, the container is put in place, members I, 8, and I2, at the point of contact, are sprung slightly outwardly. This is considered important, since the container is thereby held rigidly in place, albeit its removal by the bail for emptying purposes, is a comparatively easy matter.

The split ring 14, as shown, is affixed to the handle 23 of the lid 22.

Advantages other than those already referred to are apparent. The bracket and container may be mounted within an ashpit, concealing the greater portion thereof from casual view. The reversely curved member l2, together with members I and 8, insure rigidity of the container, making removal and replacement of the lid a simpler operation. Also, by the arrangement described and shown, stooping on the part of the housewife is unnecessary.

It is understood of course, that the drawing is illustrative only, and I do not wish to be limited to the precise details shown, as various changes could be made without departing from the scope of the invention.

Having thus described my invention, I claim:

A device of the character described, comprising a pair of horizontal members extending from the lower ends of a pair of vertical hanger members, a cross-piece secured at its ends to said horizontal members, and an intermediate horizontal member secured to said cross-piece, all adapted to support a container, means for maintaining said container rigidly in position, comprising a reversely bent portion formed on one end of said intermediate member, a pair of upwardly inclined arms forming a continuation of said horizontal members, and a web member connecting the upper extremities of said upwardly inclined arms and means for adjustably mounting said device securely on a fixture.

ROY W. HORMAN'N.
