CLAMP AND HOLDER COMBINED Filed Sept. 1, 1949 I n ventors Leonard Nelson Ernest E Ni/sson Patented Feb. 13, 1951 CLAMP AND HOLDER COMBINED Leonard Nelson and Ernest F. Nilsson, Peekskill, N. Y.

Application September 1, 1949, Serial No. 113,516

6 Claims.

The present invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in a clamp and holder assemblage which is especially, but not necessarily, adapted to properly hold a can of paint in a readily accessible position on a ladder or other support in a manner to efiectively free the hands of the painter for ready and unrestricted use,

Needless to say, we are aware that the art which the invention relates reveals many and varied styles and forms of can and pail holders. Despite the activity in this line of endeavor, we are now in a position to disclose herein an improved adaptation and arrangement of parts which represent an attachment in which users will find their needs' In carrying out our invention, we employ a.

two-part clamp wherein the parts or units are telescopically connected with one another by a bolt and winged nut, the same bolt and nut serving to separably and adjustably join the stated reach member to the clamp.

Novelty is also believed to reside in a fixed stay or abutment member which depends from the reach member at right angles which rests against the exterior side of the paint can and which has keeper notches to accommodate the type of can which has a rolled bead at its mouth portion.

Then, too, We have found it expedient and practicable to employ a simple U-shaped jaw unit which straddles the reach member and which is pivoted thereto, the limbs of said unit having can contacting hooks, there being a turn button from which constitutes the aforementioned detent, and which serves, when in proper position, to set and retain the jaw unit or means in its can retaining position.

Other objects and advantages may become apparent from the following description and the accompanying illustrative drawings.

In the accompanying sheet of drawings, wherein like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the views:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the complete 2 attachment as constructed in accordance With the principles of our invention;

Figure 2 is a central longitudinal sectional view through the reach member and companion parts carried thereby;

Figure 3 is a fragmentary sectional and elevational view showing how the can holder functions to grip and support a can with a bead;

Figure 4 is likewise a fragmentary sectional and elevational view, similar to Figure 3, showing how the same holder serves to grip and support the type of paint can which has an overhanging annular flange; and,

Figure 5 is a fragmentary elevational view showing the turn button in its released out-ofthe-way position, wherein it allows pivoting of the jaw means as shown.

The part of the attachment which we designate as the clamp is denoted, generally, by the numeral 1 and comprises a pair of substantially duplicate clamp units 8 and 9. These have their channeled portions telescopically connected together, and provided with registering slots l0 and II. The hooked end portions l2 and iii are suitably formed to engage over edge portions of a relatively stationary part M of a ladder or the like. This may be a step, the top of a step-ladder or any other suitable support. The reach member i5 is also channel-shaped in cross section and has one end formed with a slot l6 and this slotted end rests upon the clamping member Q as shown in Figure l and a headed bolt ll passes through the several slots I0, II and I6 and is provided with a washer and thumb nut l8, whereby all three parts are separably and adj ustably united.

The aferementioned abutment or stay is de-,

noted by the numeral [9 and is shown in Figure 2, is channel-shaped in cross section. It has a laterally bent end 2!! which is fitted in the channel of the reach member and this is solidly riveted to the latter, as at 2|. This abutment is adapted to rest against the wall of a paint can or other container in the manner shown in Figures 3 and 4. It will be noticed that the upper portions of the side flanges are cut away or notched as at 22 to provide keeper seats.

The jaw means is denoted by the numeral 23 and as stated, is a Ushaped part whose bight portion and limbs 24 straddle the outer end portion of the reach member, said limbs being pivotally joined asat 25 to the side flanges of the reach member. The free end portions of the limbs are fashioned into suitabie hooks or jaws 2B. The bight portion 2'5 carries an upstanding finger-piece or stop 28. When the jaw means is in useful position, it is held in such position by the upstanding rim 29 of a turn button or latch 30. The latter part is riveted and pivoted on the reach member as at 3|. It may occupy the latching position shown in Figures 1 to 4 inclusive or may be swung around to occupy the outof-the-way released position shown in Figure 5.

The manner in which the clamp 8 is applied and fastened on the support Iii is shown in Figure 1. Assuming that part I l is a top of a step ladder, it will be seen that the reach member extends outwardly to locate the can hooking and suspending means at a conveniently usable point.

In Figure 3 the can A is a type which is provided with a rolled bead B. So, in this arrangement the outer end of the reach member 85 overlies the mouth of the can A and the beadB rests in the keeper seats 22, as shown. The bill portions of the hooks 25 rest against the interior of the can and when in position, the turn button or latch is swung to the position here shown which serves to hold the jaw means set. In this arrangement the major portion of the stay 19 may or may not touch the wall of the can.

In the arrangement shown in Figure 4, the can C has a customary type inturned endless flange D. So, in this arrangement the abutment it bears directly against the outer surface of the Wall of the can and the hooks 25 ride underheath the flange D so that when the detent or turn button 3!! is locked the can G is securely suspended for available use.

In Figure 5, we show how the turn button may be swung to an out-of-the-way position to allow the jaw means 23 to be angled or swung to a position to clear the inner marginal edge of the flange D. The finger-piece or flange 28 may be employed to facilitate swinging means 23 on the pivots 25.

Obviously, the same attachment may be em ployed to suspend other types of pails and containers. For example, atype which employs a large gallon or two gallon can and which has a wire bail or handle, the latter may be hung from the hooks 26 in an obvious manner.

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.

Minor changes in the shape, size and arrangement of details coming within the field of invention claimed may be resorted to in actual practice if desired.

Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

1. A paint can holder comprising a clamp, a reach member connected to said clamp, a stay member connected to said reach member, jaw means carried by said reach member and movable toward and from said stay member so as to grip and hold a can between said jaw means and stay member, and a turn button pivoted on said reach member for co-action with said jaw means.

2. A paint can holder comprising an adjustable clamp applicable to a relatively stationary support, a reach member adjustably connected to said clamp, jaw means pivotally mounted on said reach member, a stay member secured at right angles to said reach member and adapted to rest against a side of a paint can and opposed to said jaw means, and a turn button rotatable on said reach member and releasably engageable with said jaw means.

3. A paint receptacle holder comprising a clamp applicable to a relatively stationary support, a reach member connected at one end to said clamp, said reach member extending laterally from the clamp, a U-shaped unit embodying hooked, limbs, said limbs straddling said reach member and being pivotally connected thereto, a stay member attached to and depending at right angles from said reach member at a point inwardly of the U-shaped unit, the free ends of the hooks being swingable toward and from said stay member, and a turn button pivotally mounted on said reach member and cooperable with said U-shaped unit.

4. A ladder attachment of the class shown and described comprising an elongated rigid reach member, a stay member at right angles to the reach member and having a laterally bent end portion afiixed to said reach member, a U-shaped member having a bight portion and parallel limb portions, said limb portions terminating in, hooks, said bight portion being provided with an. upstanding finger piece, and a turn button pivotally mounted on said reach member and engageable with said bight portion.

5. The structure specified in the claim 4, said.
