ORNAMENTAL DISPLAY FOR TIP END OF ANTENNA RODS Filed July 16. 1941 INVENTOR fixeaerzZ/i KDZ LAW m ATTORNEYS Patented Sept. 7, 1943 DISPLAY FOR TrrENn-or ANTENNA RODS 7 Frederick. Halbig, Chep'achet, R. I.

This invention relates to Ornamental djis'play attachments for-theendof an-tennarodspmore particularly antenna rods mounted on automobiles. 1

" The display in conspicuous places-of son-1eornamentati'on representativeor some particular designation, for example, the American flag, the emblem of the Navy; Army, Aviation Corps; or theinsignia of some fraternal organization, is new in vogue; and an object of this invention is to provide an ornamental display device of the aboveeharacter which may be readily attached in placeto the upper end of the antenna rod of A pucata miy 16, 1941, sci-an No. reacts 5 Claims. (CI. 4r1-1'0.)

Fig; 'lfl is a partialsectional view taken sultrsta-ntial'ly'along line 9'- 9 of Fig. 91 With reference to thedrawing, the numeral 158 designates generally an ornamentaldisplay device which in the present instance consists of a s'emi-spherical hollow body portion it provided on the outer surface thereof with the outline of the western hemisphere, simulating a terrestrial globe. 'l'his'bo dy portion 1 Ms: surmounted with a representation of an eagle I-Z ona stretched Wings 13 and elements 14 and15-"in automobiles, which little skill; and secured in position in a manner to prevent its accidental detachment from the antennarod.

Automobile antenna rods are usually provided at the upper" extremity thereofwith an enlarge-- ment which-in many instances is in the form of a sphere made offr'agile material which, when broken, leaves the rods with an unsightly upper ltijpend; and it isan object of the" invention to provideanorna-mentaldisplay device of the aforementioned character which may be easily attached to the tip end. of an. antenna rod on which the enlarged extremity may have been destroyed or removed.

With. these and other objects in View, the invention consists of certain. novel features-croon- 'structiomv as. will be more fully described, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

Inthe accompanying drawing:

Fig. '1 illustrates an antenna rod secured to an automobile and having an ornamental display device embodying my invention attached to the tip end of the rod;

Fig. 2 is a view showing a fragmental portion of the antenna rod with the ornamental display shown in Fig. 1 attached thereto but drawn on a larger scale; I

Fig. 3 is a View similar to that of Fig. 2, but illustrating the opposite side;

Fig. 4 is a partial sectional view taken substantially on line 4-4 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 5 is a sectional View taken substantially on line 55 of Fig. 3;

Fig. 6 is a perspective view illustratingone form of attaching element;

the form of anchor parts extending fromeither sideof' thebody portion H.

In order toatta-ch and firmlysecure this ornamental displayto the-tip end of an automobile antenna rod, I provide an attaching element designated generally l6 comprising a substantially= L-shaped base member I1 suitable secured to the body-portion M such as by solder as shown at l 8 in'Fig. 4 or bywelding. This base member H is provided with pairs of spaced fingers l9 and 28" extending from the edges of thelon-ger arm thereof. pair of fingers is substan tially similar tothe other with the fingers-of each pair bent to a form to provide an opening 2] therebetween having a restricted entrance.

Thefo'r'm of the fingers is such that in connec- 'tion with the type or material employed. for-the base membera certainmeasure of resiliency or s g iri'rigfiness"isprovided the fingers so-thatthey may firmly ahdresi-liently grip the tip end. 2 3

of the antenna red when received between the pair offingers and hold the ornamental display in position. The shorter arm of the base member I1, is recessed or cupped as at 25 to conform to and receive therein the enlarged tip end extremity usually provided on automobile antenna rods which in the instant case is shown as being of a spherical formation 26. from this cupped portion 25 and are bendable to engage the spherical formation 26 and thereby assist in holding and securing the display in position. 1

In the form of the invention shown inFig. 7 and Fig. 8, a hollow, semi-spherical body portion 30 is provided with an extension 3| to which is secured a bar 32 in the formof an arrow and to which may be secured different particular.

designating characters which in the present showing is a group of letters of the alphabet designated 33 and secured in place such as by Tabs 2'! depend fication of the invention which is particularly well adapted to be secured to antenna rods which are provided with a plain tip end or in which the enlarged formation may have been broken or otherwise destroyed. In this form of the invention, the means for attachment to the tip end of an antenna rod consists of a base mem- 'ber 35 having one end slotted as at 31 and a bore 38 opening at the other end thereof and of a size to snugly receive the tip endof-the antenna rod. A bar 39 in the form of an arrow I is positioned substantially midway thereof in the slot 37 and secured to the walls thereof in any'of the well-known manners. To this bar element there may be mounted any of a'choice of characters 40 which by way of example is here shown as a soldier boy.

It will be apparent that I have illustrated an ornamental display device which may be easily and firmly attached to the tip end of an automobile antenna rod and in which the particular designated ornamental character may be of a various choice. The provision of tabs 21 onthe attaching member, bendable to engage the enlarged extremit of the tip end of the rod, will secure the ornamentation in place in such a manner that a tool will be required to remove the same from the rod. This will in great measure prevent the ornamentation from being unauthorizedly removed for purposes of theft.

,I claim:
