I TELLTALE SIGNAL FOR COUNTER DISPLAYS Filed Sept. '29, 1945- Im/entnr I 5 22 I /7 yMt Patented Apr. 19, 1949 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE TELLTALE SIGNAL FOR COUNTER DISPLAYS Hugo Weir, Flushing, N. Y.

Application September 29, 1945, Serial No. 819,363

2 Claims. 1

My invention relates to counter displays and has for an object to provide a display rack in which articles are retained by cricket clips so arranged that upon withdrawing an article from the rack an audible signal will be sounded.

Another object of the invention is to provide a rack for displaying a plurality of articles and means whereby an audible signal will be sounded upon the removal of any one of said articles.

A further object of the invention is to provide in a display rack retaining clips each of which is adapted to issue an audible signal upon being released through the withdrawal of an article displayed upon the rack.

Other features and advantages will become more readily apparent from the following description and the accompanying illustrative drawings in which:

Figure 1 is a front elevational view of my improved display rack,

Figure 2 is a top plan view thereof, and

Figure 3 is a section on line 33 of Figure 2.

The invention consists of a stand H, comprising a base l2, having a back wall l3, which is spaced off by ribs or the like l4, l5, etc., on its forward side l6, said back being mounted intermediate the longitudinal edges H and I8, whereby a firm support for the bottles, or the like, I9, 20, etc., seated on the forward shelf 2|, of the stand, is provided.

Secured against the said edge IT, by screws 22, is a longitudinal metal guard strip '23, to which is fixed a series of metal beetles, or the like, 24, 25, etc., each being spaced directly in front of one of the said bottles. Each beetle has fixed to its head 26, the upper end 21, of a slightly crimped spring 28, the lower end 29, of which lies normally in the path of the lower end 30, of said bottle 20, and when any bottle 20, I9, etc., is removed from its seat the spring being released will suddenly straighten itself to normal position and in doin so will issue a sharp clack sound, which should call the the attention of a clerk to the fact that one of the bottles has been removed, whereby an eye may be kept on the person so removing it.

The bottles 20, etc., in the present instance are intended to contain face powders of various colors and textures and are of greater length than the height of the said wall l8, in order that the contents thereof may be clearly seen, not being shaded by the said wall. These bottles may merely be samples indicative of varieties to be had and not in themselves intended for sale, but which unprincipled persons might try to confiscate, therefore the necessity for a means to indicate the removal thereof. Or they may be intended for sale with their contents and in either case an alarm will be sounded upon removal thereof by an unauthorized person.

It is of course obvious that the particular form 2 of the alarm devices 24, 25, etc., may be varied as desired. It is also obvious that the bottles may contain liquids instead of powders or packages of certain varieties may be substituted for the bottles without changing the purposes and intents of the invention.

Naturally it is to be understood that the above described invention is not to be limited in scope or construction to the precise device as illustrated herein, but such changes may be made to conform to the spirit of the invention and to manufacturing facilities and requirements.

It is thought that persons skilled in the art to which the invention relates will be able to obtain a clear understanding of the invention after considering the description in connection with the drawings. Therefore, a more lengthy description is regarded as unnecessary.

Changes in shape, size and rearrangement of details and parts such as come within the purview of the invention claimed may be resorted to, in actual practice, if desired.

1. A display rack comprising a horizontal supporting base and a vertical back attached thereto, vertically extending spaced positioning ribs secured to the forward surface of said back, a guard strip secured to the forward edge of said base extending above the upper surface thereof, and a series of sounding units secured to said guard strip formed with resilient inwardly and downwardly extending article engaging actuating arms displaceable by said articles when placed on said shelf and actuated upon the removal of the articles to provide an audible alarm as said arms spring back to their normal positions.

2. A display rack comprising a plurality of recesses, means for indicating the removal of an article from any one of said recesses, said rack consisting of a base and a vertical wall intermediate of the longitudinal edges thereof whereby a relatively narrow shelf is formed for said articles, and said indicating means comprising a series of signal devices placed along said shelf and having contact with each of said articles, said devices consisting of displaceable spring controlled snap members operable upon the removal of each article from said shelf.

HUGO WEIR.
