AN'IIROOSTING DEVICE Filed Aug. 16, 1946 I INVENTOR.

ALBERT- L. FRALIN 0 2/ B 22 I ATTCI RNEYS Patented Oct. 18, 1949 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE ANTIROOSTING DEVICE Albert L. Fralin, Miami, Fla. Application August 16, 1946, Serial No. 691,053

1 Claim. 1

My present invention relates to an improved anti-roosting device especially adapted to be mounted on eaves troughs, roofs and other suitable portions of buildings to discourage and prevent roosting thereon by fowl such as pigeons and starlings.

In the accompanying drawings I have illustrated one complete example of the physical embodiment of my invention according to the best mode I have thus far devised but it will be understood that various changes and alterations may be made in the exemplified structure within the scope of the appended claim.

In the drawings- Figure 1 is a front elevational view of the anti-roosting device of my invention.

Figure 2 is a transverse vertical sectional view at line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a plan view of the revolving antiroost. 1

Figure 4 is a detail view of the journal structure; and

Figure 5 is a transverse sectional view of the anti-roost mounted on an eaves trough.

Referring now to the drawings wherein like parts are indicated by like characters I have illustrated the present embodiment of my invention as comprising the anti-roost frame formed of a wire having a straight side 2 and connecting end portions 4 provided with loops 6, and the ends 8 and B of the wire being twisted together at l2.

Brackets l4 secure rods I5 therein which act as journals for the loops 6 of the wire frame.

The brackets may be mounted and secured by screws 18 as desired and in Figure 5 I have shown the bracket provided with extended legs 20 and 2| conforming to the shape of the conventional eaves trough 22.

As seen in Figure 4, the anti-roost frame may be employed in multiple units and any desirable number may be used.

In use with the wire anti-roost frame mounted as shown and described, the fowl intending to roost thereon may alight and attempt to perch on one side of the frame, and the weight of the bird will revolve the frame on the journal rods 16 thereby frightening or disturbing the fowl and causing it to leave.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

An anti-roosting device comprising a rectangular rotatable wire frame formed from a single strand of wire, said frame having'a straight side, angled end portions and the ends of the wire being twisted together to form a second straight side opposite to and parallel with the first side journal loops formed at the center of the angled end portions, journal brackets adapted for mounting on a building, and rods in the brackets extending through the journal loops.

ALBERT L. FRALIN.
