July lg, 1938. G. M. REIFER FREIGHT GAR LOADING APPARATUS Filed March 25, 1937 w l f y wrm/mu Patented July 19, v1938 y FREIGHT CAR LOADING APPARATUS George M, Reiter, Rochester, Mich., assignor to General Motors Corporation, Detroit,'Mich., a

corporation of Delaware Application Marcif. 1937, Serial No. 132,932

11 claim.

'I'hisinvention has to do with adjustable load bracing means for holding freight in box cars and the like. It consists in the provision of stanchions, preferably of channel iron, which are adjustably positioned along the sidewall of the car by engaging their ends with suitable holding means arranged along top and bottom of the side walls of the car. The channel irons are adapted to receive between them adjustable braces which engage the freight and prevent its shifting in the car.

The invention has `to do with a cheap and simple arrangement of parts for'accomplishing the above result, and is also characterized by the convenience with which the desi-red adjustments may be made.

Figure 1 is a side view of a portion of the side wall of a freight car with one of the stanchions in place.

Figure 2 is an enlarged perspective view of the upper end of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is an enlarged perspective view of the lower end of Figure 1.

Figure 4 shows one of the spikes or keys which may be used to hold the lower end of the stanchion in place.

l indicates a sheet metal strip adapted to be secured preferably along the top of the side wall of a freight car. The upper end of the strip is formed to provide outwardly and downwardly bent tongues I2 and downwardly and outwardly bent abutments I4 alternating with the tongues. The tongues and abutments are slightly spaced as shown at I6.

To the bottom of the car or to the side wall adjacent the bottom is secured the notched strip I8, the notches corresponding with the tongues I2 of the strip I0. Channel iron stanchions`2ll` are adapted to be positioned as shown in Figure 2 with tongue I2 occupying the upper end of the channel and the lower end of the stanchion seated in a notch in the strip- I8. The spike or key 2|, shown in Figure 4, is inserted in a hole in the floor to prevent displacement of the lower end of the stanchion.A It will be noted from Figures 1 and 2 that the abutments I4 engage the iianges of the channel at the upper end, and assist the tongues in resisting displacement of the stanchion under the heavy forces exerted on them by the freight in transit.

As indicated in Figures 1 and 2 the stanchions 20 are adapted to receive braces 22 which as shown may consist of channel iron with a wooden filler as shown. The braces 22 may be adjustably supported in any desired position along the length (ci. 10s-ass) o! the stanchion by means of pins 2l engaging alined apertures 26 in the flanges of the channel. 'Ihe described construction obviously provides a cheap and simple method of adjustable bracing for freight car loads. It is obvious, of course, 5 that it is equally applicable to other carriers and the term "freight car is used in the claims with this connotation. It will also be understood that the invention is capable of considerable modification as, for example,.by reversing the position of the top and bottom strips, and it will be understood that the terms top, bottom and so on are used in a relative sense only, and not in an absolute sense.

I claim:

1. Adjustable load bracing means for freight cars and the like comprising a strip secured to a car wall and extending longitudinally thereof, said strip being provided with outwardly extending abutments and with downturned tongues 2 alternating with the abutments and spaced therefrom, a stanchion having one end adapted to be telescoped over any of said tongues, portions of said end being adapted to engage adjacent abutments to resist displacement, and means for securing the other end of the stanchions in position.

2. Adjustable load bracing means for freight cars and the like comprising a strip secured to a car wall and extending longitudinally thereof, said strip being provided with outwardly extending abutments and with down-turned tongues alternating with the abutments and spaced therefrom, a stanchion having one end adapted to be telescoped over any of said tongues, portions of said end being adapted to engage adjacent abutments to resist displacement, a strip secured to the rcar wall adjacent the bottom thereof, said strip being notched to provide sockets to receive the lower ends of the stanchions and means for securing the stanchions in said notches.

3. Adjustable load bracing means for freight cars comprising a strip secured adjacent the top of the side of the car. said strip being provided with spaced outwardly and downwardly bent tongues, a strip secured adjacent the bottom of the side wall having notches therein corresponding with said tongues, and a channel iron stanchion adapted to receive any one of said tongues within its channel at one end thereof while the other end of the stanchion is received in the corresponding notch.

4. In the combination as defined in claim 3,

vabutments extending outwardly from the firstnamed strip between said tongues and spaced therefrom and adapted to engage the sides of the channel to prevent lateral displacement thereof.

5. Adjustable load bracing means for freight cars comprising a strip secured adjacent the top of the side of s,A car, said strip being provided with outwardly and downwardly bent tongues alternating with and spaced from downwardly and outwardly bent abutments, a strip secured adjacent the bottom of the side wall having notches therein corresponding with said tongues. and a channel iron stanchion adapted to receive any-V one of said tongues within said channel at one end thereof while the other end is received in the corresponding notch.

6. A strip for receiving stanchlons for use in freight car loading comprising a longitudinallg extending securing portion, tongues outwardly and downwardly bent from one edge of said securing portion alternating with and spaced from abutments extending outwardly between said tongues.

'7. A strip for receiving stanchlons for use in freight car loading comprising a longitudinally extending securing portion, tongues outwardly and downwardly bent from one edge of said securing portion alternating with and spaced from abutments bent downwardly and outwardly from the same edge of said securing portion.

8. Adjustable load bracing means for freight cars and the like comprising spaced lugs extending longitudinally of the car along opposite side walls thereof, said lugs including downturned end portions extending parallel to but spaced from said walls. a pair of stanchlons arranged at opposite sides of the car. each of said stanchlons having its upper end formed to provide a socket and being arranged with one of securing the lower ends of the stanchion against longitudlnal-dlsplacement, and braces extending between said stanchlons and holding them against inward movement. v

In the combination as donned in claim s, the securing means for the lower ends of the stanchlons comprising a strip extending longitudinally of the car adjacent the bottoms of the side walls thereof and having notches to receive the ends of the stanchlons.

10. Adjustable load bracing means for freight cars and the like comprising strips secured adjacent the tops of the opposite side walls of the car and extending longitudinally thereof, spaced tongues bent from said strip and having downturned end portions lying parallel to but spaced from the said side walls, a pair of stanchlons each having one end formed to provide a socket adapted to receive any one of said end'portions to position the stanchion against longitudinal displacement, said stanchlons being so positioned opposite each other along the car walls, means for securing the lower ends of said stanchlons against longitudinal displacement, and a brace extending between said stanchions and holding them against inward displacement. y.

1l. In the combination as deilned in claim 1 the means for holding the lower ends of said stanchlons against longitudinal displacement comprising bars extending longitudinally of the side walls adjacent the bottoms thereof and having notches to receive the lower ends of the stanchions.
