April 24, 1951 c. s. HOLTON BRUSH HOLDER Filed March 1, 1948 Patented Apr. 24, 1951 O FICE:
BRUSH I: IOLDER Charles s. Holton, Largo, Fla.
Application March 1, 1948, Serial 'No. 12,399
1 Claim. (Cl. 20615.1)
This invention relates'to a more particularly, has reference to a holder adapted to retain paint brushes'when theyare not in use..
.An important object" of provide a device of the characterdescribed which is adapted, by reason of its novel construction and arrangement, to clamp around the bristle end of a paint brush in such a manner that on depositing of the brush and holder in a container in which is a quantity of fluid, for storage of the the invention is to a brush holder, and V r brush, the bristles will be held fiat, and out of I contact with any part of the container.
Another important object is toprovide a brush holder which can be manufactured at minimum expense, will be exceptionally durable, and may.
be' applied to or removed from a paint brush with speed and ease.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts, hereinafter more fully described and pointed out'in the claim, it being understood that changes may be made inthe construction and arrangement of parts without departing from the spirit of the invention as claimed.
Referring to thedrawing Figure l is'a front elevational view, portions being broken away, showing the holder applied to a conventional paint brush.
2 peripherally flared as at I ii for ready insertion or removalof the brushwithout-disturbance: of the bristles. V k
A plurality of openings .H are formed in the plate 5,50 that on storage of the brush and its holder in a container in which is a quantity of fluid, the fluid will be free to enter not only from the ends of the holder, but also from its inter-.- mediate portion, thusassuring penetration of the fluid to all portions of the bristles. I
The material from which the plate 5 is formed, is preferably possessed of a certain degree of resiliency, so that normally, the lapping ends 6 and I tend to spring toward each other, thus enlarging the end openings 8 and 9.
By .reason of this construction, the brush is capable of being readily inserted or removed from the holder. To insert the brush in the holder, the handle end H is extended through the flared opening 9, and the brush is drawn Figure 2'is a view partly in side elevation and partly in vertical section.
Figure 3 is a section taken on line 33 of Figure 1.
Referring to the drawing in detail, H designates the handle end and B the bristle end of a conventional paint brush. The holder of the invention would, as will be apparent, be made in various sizes, to accommodate brushes of standard width.
Adapted to be clamped to the bristle end B of the brush is my holder, which mainly comprises a plate 5, preferably of metal material, and which is bent in its manufacture so as to provide a sleeve of oblong cross section to fit around the bristle end of the brush. In blank, plate 5 is of generally rectangular formation, and after it is bent to shape, its respective ends 5 and 1 lap as best shown in Figures 1 and 3. These ends are not connected to each other, however, being held in the position shown by the permanent bends placed in the plate blank, and by a clamping means to be described. I I
Afterv it has been bent to shape, the plate 5 has wholly open ends 8 and 9, the end 9 being As previously stated, the tendency o'f the I holder to spring open slightly permits easy insertion of the brush, or removal thereof. When, however, the brush has been positioned as shown in the drawing, a tension clamp comprising cooperating members I 2 and I3 is snapped, and this clamps the plate tightly to the bristle end B, as shown at M, said plate or sleeve frictionally gripping the brush.
As such time as it may be desired to remove the brush from'its holder, it is only necessary to separate the clamp members, whereupon the resiliency of the material used in forming the plate 5 permits ready removal of the brush.
Important characteristics of the invention are its simplicity of manufacturaease and efiiciency of operation, and its characteristic of permitting fluid to penetrate the bristles properly while yet holding the bristles completely out of contact with any surface which might tend to distort them while the brush is in storage. 7
Considering the cross sectional formation of the brush holder further, the front portion, slit Whenever released, would reduce the area of.
overlap seen in Fig. 1, thus automatically releasing a paint brush which has been slidably Jinserted thereinto.
What is claimed is:
A holder for paint brushes comprising a single piece of spring metal material formed into a sleeve fully open at both ends and having an oblong cross sectional configuration, said sleeve having flat wide front and back portions parallel to each other to define a generally fiattened brush-receiving space, the sleeve having transversely curved'side walls integral with and connecting said front and back portion, said transversely curved side walls comprising U- shaped springs the force of which is exerted in a direction tending to open said springs and spread the front and back portions away from each other, said front portion being slit from end 4 to end of the sleeve and the edges of said slit overlapping along an area extending longitudinally and centrally of the sleeve; and a tension clamp bridging the overlapping edges of said slit and comprising a pair of cooperating clamp members including a yoke and keeper, said yoke when engaged under the keeper increasing the area of overlap of said slit edges to reduce the cross sectional area of the sleeve and draw said transversely curved side walls against opposite sides of a paint brush inserted in said space, said side walls gripping a, paint brush to hold said brush in an elevated position within said space.
