MOP PAIL File d March 17, 1944 Patented July 3, 1945 2,s79,47s MOP PAIL Willie 0. Cleveland, Jr., Louisville, Ky.

Application March 1'7, 1944, Serial No. 526,997

2 Claims.

The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in mop pails used principally for cleaning floors and similar surfaces and the invention has for its primary object to provide rollers on the bottom of the pail to facilitate its movement over the floor and embodying means for moving the rollers into a retracted position so that the pail will then rest upon the floor and with the rollers out of contact with the floor, to prevent movement of the pail, when desired.

A further object of the invention is to provide simple and practical means for moving the rollers into and out of their retracted position and which at the same time is efficient and practical in operation, relatively inexpensive to manufacture and otherwise well adapted for the purposes for which the same is intended.

Other objects and advantages reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawing forming part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and'in which Figure 1 is a, fragmentary vertical sectional view of the bottom of a mop pail showing the rollers in position thereof,

Figure 2 is a top plan view, and

Figure 3 is a fragmentary sectional view taken substantially on a line 33 of Figure 1.

Referring now to the drawing in detail wherein for the purpose of illustration I have disclosed, a preferred embodiment of the invention, the numeral 5 designates a mop pail generally which includes a bottom 6 positioned above the lower edge of the pail so that the sides of the pail extend downwardly below the bottom 6 as shown to advantage in Figure 1 of the drawing.

To the outside of the pail adjacent the lower edge thereof, are secured bracket members I arranged in'pairs and between which a pin 8 extends for pivotally supporting the upper end of a,

mounting 9 for a roller I0 which is journalled on the lower end of the mounting.

The upper end of the mounting 9 is formed with an upwardly and outwardly extending arm H to which one end of ,a rod I2 is pivotally attached, the rod extending through an opening l3 formed in the side of the pail below the bottom 6.

An annular member 14 is secured to the under side of the bottom 6 and also has openings IS in the sides thereof for freely receiving the rods H of the respective rollers.

' A plate I6 is also secured to the .under side of the bottom 6 from which a pin l1 extends downpin and flange providing a mounting for rotatably supporting a plate l9 thereon. A washer is mounted on the pin above the plate l9 to space the latter from the plate IS.

The plate 19 is preferably square-shaped and adjacent each corner thereof the inner ends of the rods l2 are pivotally attached by means of wardly having a flange l8 at its lower end, the

An eye 22 also extends downwardly from the plate l9 adjacent one side thereof and to which I one end of a link 23 is loosely attached, the other end of the link being loosely connected to a crank 24 formed in a shaft 25 journalled in the ring member M as well as in the side of the pail 5,

the shaft projecting outwardly therefrom and having a handle or end thereof.

In the operation of the device the mountings 9 treadle 26 secured to the outer for the rollers are normally maintained in a ver-.

, through the medium of the link 23 and crank 24,

thus causing an inward movement of the rods l2 which results in the raising of the roller I0 into the dotted line position shown in Figure 1. The

' pail will then rest upon the floor against free travel, and thus be maintained in a stationary position.

It is believed the details of. construction, operation and advantages of the device will be readily understood from the foregoing without further detailed explanation.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim is:

1. An attachment for scrub pails comprising a plurality of roller mountings having rollers journaled thereon, means pivotally supporting the mountings to the side of the pail with the rollers extending below the lower edge of the pail to sup port the pail above a floor, an arm extending up-, wardly and outwardly from the upper end of each mounting, rods connected to the arms and extending toward the center of the pail, a rotatable member supported under the pail for movement about a vertical axis and to which the inner ends 'of the rods are attached, and means operable I from a, position at the side of the pail for actuating said rotatable member in a manner to raise and lower said rollers.

2. An attachment for scrub pails comprising a plurality of roller mountings having rollers journaled thereon, means pivotally supporting the mountings to the side of the pail with the rollers extending below the lower edge of the pail to support the pail above a floor, an arm extending upwardly and outwardly from the upper end of each mounting, rods connected to the arms and extending toward the center of the pail, a rotatable member supported under the pail for movement about a vertical axis and to which the inner ends of the rods are attached, means operable from a position at the side of the pail for actuating said rotatable member in a manner to raise and lower said rollers, said means comprising a shaft journaled in the pail, a crank carried by the shaft, 2, link connecting the'crank to the rotatable member, and a manual member for actu- 10 ating the shaft.
