In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing a preferred form of an antenna mast mounting device con- 'structed in accordance with the features of the present invention and illustrated in connection with its installation on the ridge of a roof.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged plan view of the hinge or pivot anchor attachment member shown in Fi 1.

Fig. 3 is a side View of the hinge anchor attachment member shown in Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a broken perspective view similar to that of Fig. 1 showing a modified form of link and arrangement.

Fig. 5 is a broken perspective view similar to that of Fig. 4, showing a further modified form of link and assembly.

Referring to'Fig. 1 of -the drawings, the improved antenna mounting device of the present invention is illustrated in'c-onnection with its use on the ridge of a roof In for supporting and holding an antenna mast. The device includes a square base or platform l2 which is attached to the ridge of the roof by means of screWsl4 which extend along a diagonal of the platform l2. In the position shown, the platform 12 is mounted so that one diagonal is in line with the ridge of the roof, while two opposite corners extend over the respective sloping sides of the roof. The screws l4 serve to initially position the platform on the roof so that the weight of the mast and antenna will be carried directly by the roof.

The platform [2 may, as an example, be from five to ten inches square,- and made of metal approximately one-quarter inch thick. The entire mounting device is preferably made of relatively heavy weather-resistant metal plate.

or cast metal, such as Duralumin, aluminum bronze, steel, iron or other suitable metal. Certain of these metals which may corrode, may be plated or painted if desired.

The corners of the platform l2 which project over the sloping surfaces of the roof, are each provided with a sheet metal anchor member it which may be riveted by rivets H, or welded to the corners of the platform in the position shown. A relatively long link or bar l8 having a hole near each end is pivoted at: one end to each of the anchor members It by means of a bolt 28, while the opposite end of each bar is similarly pivoted by a bolt 22 to an anchor plate or member 24- made exactly like the members 16. The bar l8 on each side of the ridge of the roof extends downwardly to the sloping surface of the roof, and the anchor plates or members 24 are attached to the sloping surface of the roof under a slight tension by means of screws 26.

The antenna mounting device of the present invention is erected on the ridge of the roofby initially securing screws [4, while the bars I 8 and anchor members 24 extend down to the sloping surface of the roof on their respective sides. The platform [2 is then leveled crosswise of the ridge, and the anchor plates 24 are then secured to the sloping sides of the roof, with their fiat sides down, by means of the screws 26. The mounting device is adapted to fit any roof slope because of the free pivots on the bolts 28 and 22 which permit the links or'bars [8 to extenddown to the sloping roof surface, and the members 24 to lie flat on such surface and provide a strong anchor for maintaining the platform in horizontal position.

An important feature of the present invention is the provision of the members l6 and 24 which are of the same construction and which are therefore interchangeable in the manufacture of the device. The detailed structure of these anchor members is shown in Figs. 2 and 3, in which each member is shown as being made from a single piece of sheet metal which is relatively thin compared to the thickness of the platform l2 and the bars l8. As illustrated, each anchor comprises a triangular-shaped web 28 both surfaces of which are flat, the inside surface being adapted to fit over the corners of the platform I2 while the outside surface is adapted to fit on the fiat surface of a mounting structure such as the sloping surface of the roof Ill. The two equal edges of the web member 28 are each connected integrally with a flange-like reinforcing web 38 which is at right angle tothe web; 28, and which terminates in an ear or lug 32'provided with a hole 34 for receiving bolts '28 and 22.

As shown in Fig. 2, the ears 32 are spaced from each other .a distance equal to'the thickness of the bars l8, and extend at right angles :to the opposite edge of the triangular-shaped web 28. The webs. 38 of each anchor member extend at right angles to each other so that they exactly fit along the edges forming a corner of the square platform l2. Each of the webs 38 tapers from the ear 32 to the right hand edge of the web 28. Holes 38 are provided in the web section 28 for receiving rivets H or screws 26; If the members I6 are welded to the platform 12-, the holes may be used as anchoring points for the welds;

The anchor members 16 and 24 may be cut and pressedfrom fiat sheet, a hole preferably being punched at the juncture of the web 28 and the ears 32 to facilitate later bending of the ear and web sections 32 and 38 into position. The curved edges of such a hole are shown at 31. j

The antenna mounting device of the present invention is particularly suited for the mounting of antenna masts such as are suitably employed for supporting television and frequency modulation antennas. The platform I2 thereforeis provided with a mast holding member which,in the form illustrated, comprises a vertical section of pipe 38 which is welded or otherwise attached to the center of the platform 12 and which may extend substantially above the platform to receive an antenna mast 48. The mast 48 is held in any desired orientation in the pipe 38 by means of a set screw, 42. u

A relatively large platform I 2 is preferably provided so that the sections extending along the ridge of the roof on each side of the'mast holder 38 aid in preventing the tipping of the mast in the direction of the ridge of the roof. The platform I2 is relatively large for the further reason that the extending opposite diagonal corners should extend substantially over the sloping sides of the roof to provide a steady anchoring piece for the attachment of the anchors l6 and the links l8. The links 18 may be relatively long so that they extend a'considerable distance down the slope of the roof. The angle between the platform and the links I8 is preferably'greater than but this angle of course will vary Somewhat, depending upon the slope of the'roof. If

desired, th members '24 may be attached to wooden cross pieces, which in turn are attached to two adjacent rafters of the roof. 1
