WRINGER MOP Filed May 5, 1958 2 Sheets-Sheet 1' H, J. CAMDEN WRINGER MOP May 14, 1940.

' Filed 'May 5', 1958 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 mm m 3 mm QIWMMM HJ fiamden Patented May 14, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.

This invention relates to an improved combination mop and wiper having means for wringing the mopping element.

It is an aim of this invention to provide an .6 improved combination mop which is particularly adapted for washing windows but which may also be used for washing and wiping any other horizontal or vertical surface having a mopping or washing element and a wiping element supported by a common means and at an angle to each other whereby the surface to be cleaned may be washed with the mop element after which the device may be turned over so that the surface can then be wiped with the wiping element or blade.

More particularly, it is an aim of this invention to provide a combination mop and wiper having means whereby the mopping element after it has performed its function may be retracted into the head of the mop, wringing the element by this movement, so that the wiping element carried by the head may then be employed for wiping the washed surface.

A further object of the invention is to so mount the washing and wiping elements that the former may readily be dipped in water without wetting the wiping element and so that the device may be changed from a washing to a wiping tool by rotating the handle a half turn.

Other objects and advantagesof the invention 30; will hereinafter become more fully apparent from the following description of the drawings which illustrate a preferred form of the invention, and wherein:

Figure 1 is a side elevational view of the in- 5; vention, I

Figure 2 is a vertical central sectional view of the same,

Figure 3 is a rear view in elevation of the same,

Figure 4 is a horizontal sectional view on the line 5- 1 of Figure 1,

Figure 5 is a fragmentary perspective view of a modified form of the clamping element,

Figure 6 is a fragmentary longitudinal vertical sectional. view of another modified form of the clamping element,

Figure 7 is a cross sectional view on the line i-l of Figure 6, and

Figure 8 is a view similar to Figure 5 of another modified form of the clamping element.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, wherein like reference characters designate like or corresponding parts vthroughout the different views, it designates generally the mop head and I! the handle, which may be of any conventional construction. Head In includes a pair of arch shaped members I2 which are arranged and held in spaced relationship by a plate I3 which is secured to corresponding sides thereof. The plate I3 has outwardly projecting flanges at either end, designated I4, which are secured to the corresponding sides of the arches I2 by the fastenings I5.

A socket member I6 is formed integral with the upper edge of plate I3 and projects upwardly and outwardly therefrom to receive one end of the handle I I. As seen in Figure 3, socket I6 is split at its upper end and is provided with the corresponding outwardly extending ears I! through which extend a nut and bolt fastening i8 adapted to be tightened to clamp handle II in socket I6. A spring tongue I9, formed integral with the upper side of socket I6, extends over the upper edge of the plate I3 and downwardly along its inner side to engage recessed portions 20 therein to reinforce socket I6 and to retain it in its relative relationship to plate I3 and arch members I2.

A pair of rods 2| are journaled in the depending ends of the arches I2. One of the rods 2lis journaled in openings 22, while the other rod is journaled in the notches 23, for a purpose which will hereinafter be more fully described. A mopping element 24, preferably formed of a strip of rubber or the like, is folded lengthwise over a tube or rod 25, and a clamping member 26, formed of spring metal and arcuately shaped in cross section is attached to the folded portion of the element 24 and frictionally engages it as seen in Figures 1 and 2. As seen in Figure 3, the clamping member 26 extends substantially the length of the mopping element 24. Member 26 intermediate of its ends is provided with the upset portions 21 forming a housing in which is journaled a pin 28. A link 29 having openings 30 at either end, has one end projecting through a slot 3| betweenthe upset portions 21 to be pivotally connected to clamping member 26 by the pin 28 which extends through the opening in said end.

Tubes 32, preferably formed of rubber, are mounted on rods 2| betweenthe arches I2 and on their outer sides as best seen in Figure 3. The ends of rods 2| are flared outwardly at 33 to retain the tubes or rollers 32 in position on the ends of the rods. The rod 2| mounted in notches 23 is adapted to be disengaged. from the arch I2 to permit element 24 to be positioned therein with its depending ends or edges 34 projecting downwardly beneath the head I0. Rod

2! is then forced back into position in notches 23 by compressing element 24, so that adjacent portions of the element are held in a compressed condition between the rollers 32.

A pair of spaced ears 35 are suitably secured to the upper side of the socket I6, and a lever 36 has its intermediate portion disposed between ears 35 and pivotally mounted therein by the nut and bolt 37 which extends through aligned openings in ears 35 and lever 35. The lower end 38 of lever 36 is pivotally connected to the upper end of link 29 by a pin 39 extending through the upper link opening 39.

A plate 36 is bent lengthwise to form the right angled sides 5! and 42 as seen in Figures 1 and 2. The outer edge of side 42 is bent as indicated at 43 to. form a groove adapted to receive a wiping blade M formed of rubber or the like. As seen in Figure 4, side 3! is provided with the spaced horizontal slots 45 and the cut-out tongues 46 which project diagonally rearward above and beneath slots 45.

A strand of resilient wire 41' is looped intermediate of its ends at 48 to engage a nut and bolt fastening 49 which extends therethrough and through portion 43 of side 42 and through the blade M, as seen in Figure l, to secure the strand :il to plate it and to retain blade 44 in the groove of portion -13. The opposite corresponding ends of strand 6'! project outwardly from each other and rearwardly through slots 45 to form the arms 53 having the outturned ends 5|. Side M is adapted to be positioned against the arch members !2 at the opposite side to plate It with the ears. or tongues d6 engaging the inner sides of the arches i2. Arches l2 are provided with the outset portions 52 forming the inwardly opening recesses 53 into which project the ends 5| to retain plate ll! in position.

In Figure 5, a modified form of the clamping member 28 designated 26a is shown having an upset intermediate portion 54 through which projects a strand. of wire 55 having its opposite ends bent inwardly and upwardlyand looped at 55 to receive pin 28 to pivotally mount the lower end of link 29. In Figures 6 and 7 another form of the clamping member designated 26b is shown, provided with a slot 5? through which extends one end of a bar 58, said end being split and bent outwardly in opposite directions to form the tongues 59 which engage the underside of member 26?) to retain bar 58 in position. The opposite end of bar 58 is provided with an opening 59 adapted to receive pin 28 to pivotally mount link 29. In Figure 8 another modified form of the clamping member designated 260 is shown having a pair of spaced ears 85] secured to its upper side and projecting upwardly therefrom and provided with openings 61 to receive pin 28 to pivotally mount link 29.

From the foregoing it will be obvious, that when the mop element 26 is mounted in the clamping member 26 which is in turn supported by lever 36 and link 29, that the device may be used as a mop by swinging lever 35 outwardly to its position as seen in Figure 1, so that element 24 will be in its projected position. When the surface to be cleaned has been washed by the element 24, lever 36 may be swung inwardly or toward handle 4 I to draw the element 24 upwardly between the rollers 32 which will compress it to wring out the dirty cleaning fluid. By turning handle 1 l through an arc of 180, blade 44 will be swung into the position formerly occupied by element 24, so that it can be employed to wipe the surface that had been washed by the mop 24. When it is again desired to use mop 24 lever 36 may be swung outwardly to force the mop downwardly to its projected position again.

Various modifications and changes in the construction and arrangement of the parts forming the invention may obviously be made and are contemplated, without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as defined by the appended claims.

I claim as my invention:
