Description

Sept. 5, 1950 D. E. SPRINGER I MANIKIN SUPPORT Filed April 8, 1947 Inventor Donald E. Springer Patented Sept. 5, 1950 UNITED STATES... PATENT OFFICE This invention relates to new and useful improvements in manikin supports and the primary object of the present invention is to provide a vertically inclined support for design figures which permits the figures to be safely tilted for changing shoes and the like.

Another important object of the present invention is to provide a support including a swivelly mounted arm that engages an aperture in the buttock of a manikin to retain the manikin in a desired life-like position.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a manikin support including a palettelike base so designed with rounded lines to prevent the marring of any finished background due to careless handling.

A still further object of the present invention is to provide a device of the character referred to that is simple and practical in construction, strong and reliable in use, attractive in appearance, 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 drawings forming part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the present invention in use;

Figure 2 is a side elevational view, portions of the manikin and support bein shown in sections and with dotted lines showing the position of the manikin when tilted;

Figure 3 is a top plan View of the palette-like base; and,

Figure 4 is an enlarged fragmentary View of the upper end of the support and figure engaging means, with parts broken away and .shown in sections.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, wherein for the purpose of illustration, there is shown a preferred embodiment of the present invention, the numeral l represents a manikin of any desired shape, size and material having a buttock 2 and an aperture M.

The support designated generally by the numeral 16, comprises a palette-like base I-B, of preferably glass or any other suitable material, so designed to furnish a good bearing surface as well as to prevent marring of a finished surface or background on which the base is placed.

The base I3 is provided with a vertically inclined boss 20, that is removably and pivotally 2 Claims. (Cl. :223-12.0

secured to the'base 1% by bolt and nut 2i or-th'e like extending through the base and into the lower portion of the boss. The boss 20 is'construc'ted of "glass, plastic or any other suitable material, having a vertically inclined threaded aperture 22 that receivably engages the screwthreaded portion 24 of an upright 26, preferably of glass material and circular in cross section. The head of the bolt 2| is recessed in th base and the nut is fitted in the aperture 22.

Removably mounted on the upper end of upright 26, is a sleeve 28 terminating in a socket 30 which receives a ball 32, swivelly mounted in the socket.

A coil spring 34 biased between ball 32 and a rivet 36 carried by the sleeve, urges the ball for frictionally retaining the ball in adjusted position. Rivet 36 also limits the vertical sliding movement of the sleeve on the upright.

An outwardly projecting arm 38, integrally formed with ball 32, is adapted to frictionally engage aperture M in the figure.

In preparing the manikin, the sleeve 28 is removed from upright 26, and arm 38 inserted in aperture l4 in the buttock of the manikin. The sleeve is then slipped over the upper end of the upright, as shown in Figure 1 of the drawings.

Upright 26 is inclined at a slight vertical angle toward the forward end 40 of the base so that when the manikin is correctly positioned on the upright, one foot of the manikin is preferably positioned over the forward end Ml.

Usually to replace a shoe or the like on a manikin, it is necessary to either remove the manikin from the supporting element, which takes considerable time in replacing the manikin, or for one person to tilt the manikin whi1e a second person changes or replaces the shoes.

The novel feature of the present support for the manikin, is that one person may conveniently tilt the manikin on the upright, as shown in Figure 2, and thereby quickly change the shoes whether the manikin be dressed or undressed.

In view of the foregoing description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings it is believed that a clear understanding of the device will be quite apparent to those skilled in this art. A more detailed description is accordingly deemed unnecessary.

It is to be understood, however, that even though there is herein shown and described a preferred embodiment of the invention the same is susceptible to certain changes fully comprehended by the spirit of the invention as herein described and the scope of the appended claims.

I claim:

1. A display figure support comprising a base, a holding member fixed to the base and having an internally threaded recess disposed at an inclined angle relative to said base, a post having an externally threaded lower end threaded in the recess provided in said holding member, a sleeve embracing the upper end of said post, said sleeve having an outwardly projecting tapered end forming a socket, a ball mounted in said socket for universal movement, a spring biased between the ball and the, post, and a holding arm carried by said ball.

2. A display figure support comprising an elongated base plate terminatingin a. reduced forward extension, a holding member fixed rearwardly from the center of said base plate, said holding member including an inclined recess therein, an inclined post having one end received in the recess provided in said holding member, a

sleeve embracing the remaining end of said post,

said sleeve including an outwardly projecting tapered end portion, a spherical member received in the tapered end portion of said sleeve, an arm integrally formed with said member for engaging a figure and a spring member received in the tapered end portion of said sleeve and biased between one end of said post and said spherical member.

DONALD E. SPRINGER.
