PAINTBRUSH HOLDER AND COVER THEREFOR Filed March 23, 1949 iNVENTOR JOHN COMFORT QZQM TTORNEY Patented Dec. 12, 1950 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE PAINTBRUSH HOLDER AND VER THEREFOR John Comfort, Nahant, Mass.

Application March 23, 1949, Serial No. 83,021

2 Claims. (Cl. 211-65) The present invention relates to paint brush holders and cover therefor, and is of the class described and claimed in my copending patent application, Serial Number 70,660, filed January 13, 1949.

The object of my invention is to provide a paint brush holder adapted to fit a standard paint can, or any other paint can or container designed to hold paint or a paint solvent, and to provide a cover for my particular paint brush holder.

Another object of my inventio is to provide a paint brush holder cover" which is punched or died out of the stock or blank from which the holder itself is formed.

Still another object of my invention is to form a handle for the cover from a part of the cover itself, by turning a portion of the cover upwardly.

The invention will be more clearly understood by referring more specifically to the accompanying drawing in which Figure 1 is an isometric view of one form of my paint brush holder; Fig. 2 is a similar view of the cover piece cut from the blank in forming the structure of Fig. 1, and also illustrating the method of turning up a portion of said piece to form a handle for the cover, and Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a standard paint can, showing the paint brush holder and cover in operative position thereon.

i, represents the body member of the paint brush holder punched from a blank of suitablematerial, such as sheet steel. The major opening 2, in the holder may be circular, elliptical, or any other suitable configuration, and 3, represents notches spaiced intermittently around the major or central opening '2. These notches may be of a shape designed to receive a paint brush handle therein for supporting the brush in a suspended position in a paint can, or a can containing a paint solvent. For example, the notches may have the narrowest dimension at the mouth 4, which communicates with the central or major opening 2, of the holder. The narrowest part 5, of a brush handle may be inserted in the notch opening 4, as shown in Fig. 3, and thus the brush is held in a suspended position, because the brush handle widens out above the constriction 5, and the brush handle, therefore, cannot drop below the said constriction. While in Fig. 1, I have shown notches having their narrowest opening at 4, and diverging rearwardly, the shape of these notches may be varied, as indicated in my hereinabove-mentioned application.

Referring to Fig. 2, 6 represents the main body of the cover of my improved paint brush holder, and extending beyond the peripheral edge I, of,

this cover body are extensions 8. The body 6, and extensions 8, conform. substantially in shape and dimensions to the shape and dimensions of the central or major opening 2, of the holder, and to the notches 3, surrounding the same, and are preferably, the excess material cut from the blank to form the opening 2, and notches 3, of the holder. A suitable handle a, may be formed from one of the extensions 8, by turning up the extension, as shown at 8, Figs. 2 and 3. The holder itself is provided with a depending flange or iip it, as shown in Figs, 1 and 3, and best illustrated by means of the cut-away section H, l. The paint can or solvent container to which the holder and cover are applied is designated by the numeral l2.

In operation, the holder is placed on top of the can i2, with the flange it, engaging the can, as shown in Fig. 3. The brushes are suspended in .i the can by inserting the narrowest portion or constriction '5, of the handles into the mouths 4, of the respective notches.

When the can is not in use its contents may be protected substantially by taking hold of handle i; of the cover and dropping the latter on the can with the body 6, closing the major opening 2, in the holder. The extensions 8, of the holder lie across the main body member i, of the holder and between the brushes. Thus, the extensions 8, preferably formed from the metal or other suitable stock out from the blank 1, function to support the cover by virtue of their cooperation with the main body member 1, of the holder.

What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is:

1. A paint brush holder comprising a member having a flange extending below the main body of the member and adapted to fit over the edge of an open top container and in cooperative engagement therewith, an opening in the member surrounded by notches cut in the member and having mouths communicating with said open ing, and a cover for the holder comprised of the unitary piece of the material cut from the holder to form the member, the first mentioned opening and the notches.

2. A paint brush holder comprising a member having a flange extending below the mai body of the member and adapted to fit over the edge of an open top container in cooperative engagement therewith, an opening in the member surrounded by notches cut in the member and having mouths communicating with said opening, a cover for the holder comprised of the unitary piece of material cut from the holder to form the memher, the opening and the notches, and a. handle for the cover.

JOHN COMFORT.
