M. LANGEETAL FLAGSTAFF SUPPORT Filed 001:.29, 194:5

Patented Apr. 16, 1946 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE FLAGSTAFF surroar Morris Lange, University Heights, and Morton S. Brockman, Cleveland, Ohio; said Brockman assig'nor to Superior Funeral Supply Corporation, Cleveland, Ohio, a corporation of Ohio Application October 29, 1943, Serial No. 508,190

2 Claims.

This-invention relates to flag holders and particularly to small compact devices suitable for mounting a banner on the window frame of an automobile body during parades or funeral pI cessions.

The flag holders heretofore used for such purp ses were made of metal, had coil springs and clamped or grasped externally some part of the automobile, usually a bumper or a window. The device constituting thi invention is madealmost entirely of wood and fits on the auto by certain of its pa ts expanding'against the window frame.

The primary object of the invention is to provide a flag holder which will serve the purposes mentioned herein and which may be made out of availabl and easily obtainable materials.

Another object is to provide a device of the type mentioned which will fit between two spaced members.

A further object is to provide a flag holder which may be quickly and easil mounted or dismounted.

These and other objects may be discerned from a study of the following specifications taken togather with the accompanying drawing in which like parts are indicated by like reference characters and wherein:

Figure 1 is a, comprehensive view of the flag support mounted on the window frame of an automobile;

mute 2 is a side o upport:

Figure 3 is a top plan view of the support partly in section and taken along the line and in tla e direction of the arrows 3-3 of the Figure Figure 4 is a side sectional view of the moveelevation of a preferred form in the direction of the arrows ill-l0 of the Figure 9, and

Figure 11 is a. side sectional view of the arm as it would appear when mounted.

Preferred form face 32 may be padded to prevent accidental damage to the automobile body if desired. The top end of the rod has mounted thereon a simple banner retaining means, which in the drawing is illustrated by a small round ball and indicated therein by the character 22.

The rod 2| should be made of a fairly resilient type of wood. Almost any hard straight-grained gs wood capable of being bent or bowed about onehalf inch per foot without splitting or breaking will suflice admirably. It is the tension of the bowed portion of the rod that keeps the arm memher in place and which in turn keeps th device 0 mounted as shown in the Figure 1.

Between the base 3| and theball 22 there is moveably mounted the arm ll. This arm is shaped substantially as shown, and it may be formed out of a small piece of wood about three 86 inches long, one inch wide and about threeable arm member used with the preferred sup- Figure 5 is a side sectional view of the moveable arm shown in the Figure Figure 8 is a perspective view of a base mem'- ber usedwith this supp rt;

Figure 7 is a perspective view of a modified .iol'm. oi base member which may be advantar seously used with this invention;

flture 8 is an enlarged side elevation of th base member shown in the Figure 'l;

Figure 9 is a side elevation of a, modified form of a moveable arm member which may be used with this invention taken along the line and in the direction of the arrows 9-! crime Figure 10;

Fldurc 10 is a top plan view of the modified quarters of an inch thick. Its front edge 42 will fit the space or groove inside the window frame which normally receives the upper edge of the slideable pane of glass. The curved portion im- 40 mediately back of the edge 42 is concave and fits the top part I 9 of the frame. This paitof the arm may be covered with a small piece of rubber H which will not only protect the frame and prevent marring thereof but willalso add a 45 small amount of tension to the device, thus enabling it to hold better and to provide a smoother and more even gripping surface if the holder should happen to have been inserted slightlycrooked.

so The portion of the arm in the back of the aforesaid curved and covered portion has a vertical hole 48 through which the rod 2| can freely move to, for example, the alternate position indicated by the reference character lla. In order to fix form of arm member taken along the line and the position of the arm on the rod 2| a wedgelike piece is cut out and remounted in the bo y of the arm in back of the hole 46. .The pivoted 7 part hereinafter referred to as the dog or wedge frame and the portion of the rod 2|a is bent outwardly slightLv as shown'in the Figure 1, the dog or wedge 44 is pushed up so that the lower corner a fits tight against the rod. The position of the arm 4| is thereby fixed on the staff and cannot move down until the wedge is released.

The tension of the rod 2|a then holds the device in place.

Modified form The modified form of the arm member shown in the Figures 9, 10 and 11 does not have a. pivoted wedge orother moveable part. The body of the arm is substantially the same size and shape as the armjl heretofore described. It has a front horizontal edge 52 which engages the groove in the frame B. It has a concave portion covered with a resilient rubber pad 53 and also has a vertical hole 58 therein for the rod 2|. Its anchoring means or clamping device consists. instead of. the wedge portion, of a fixed fiat metal ring or collar 54. A common metal washer will serve the purpose admirably. The arm member II has a lateral slot 58 through its rear portion '56 as shown. The ring 54 is-inserted in the slot 58 and is securely fastened in place by the small screw 55. a I

It should be noted that the diameter of the hole 51 in the ring should be large enough for the rod 2| to easily move therethrough without binding, whenfthere is no pressure on the front end of the arm. The holes 58 and 51 should be of 2 and through the portion having the-vertical hole such diameter, relative to the diameter of the rod 2|, that when the arm BI is skewed by pressing'its front end 52 downward about one-hall 'inch', the diagonal edgesB and C of the ring 54 and X and Yet the arm. will contact the rod 2| simultaneously. It willbe observed that the relative thinness of the collar 54 causes a greater leverage to be applied against the rod at the point C than at Y, with the fulcrums at B and X rebend inward as shown by the character 2") in the Figure 1 instead of outward.

A modified form of base member is desirable for use with the modified arm member 5|. Since the arm ii is quite firmly locked in position on the rod and since there is no wedge or analogous movable part which maybe released to remove the device from the window, the rod 2| and the base 3| are, therefore, made telescopic so that they maybe contracted.

The base. 3| has mounted thereon a short tubular piece of metal 33, which may be threaded externally at its bottom and inserted in the hole in the base 3| and then attached thereto by means of two small lock nuts on each side of the base. The upper portion of the tube 33 has an 8 slot 34 cut thereon as shown. A small pin 24 in the staff 2| slideably engages the slot 34 so that when demounting' the holder from the car all that the user need'do is to simply twist the rod 2| slightly so that the rod will drop in the tube as guided therein by the slot 34 and pin 24. This immediately releases the tension on the arm 5| and the device can then be removed if desired.

This modified form or telescopic base member may alsobe used with the preferred form of the arm member if desired. However, its necessity is to be considered in a. limiting sense as there may be many other forms or modifications of the invention which may also be considered to be within the scope of the appended claims.

We claim:

v 1. A flag staff of the type adaptable for use with a window frame having a sill and a top portion therein, comprising in combination. a stafi member having a, resilient portion between the. said sill and, top portions, a base member mounted on the bottom of the staff member and engageable with the said sill, and a jaw member slideably mounted on the resilient portion of the staff member, the said jaw member having a dog mounted therein and engageable with the aforesaid resilient portion.

2. A fiag staff 'of the type adaptable for use member slideably mounted on the resilient portion of the staff member, the said jaw member having adOg mountedtherlein engageable with the aforesaid resilient portion and also having an arm thereon receivable by the inverted top channel.
