Dec. 23, 1952 R. E. ROSS ARTICLE SUPPORTING BRACKET Filed June 5, 1948 INVENTOR RONALD E. ROSS ATTORNE Patented Dec. 23, 1952 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE I ARTICLE SUPPORTING BRACKET Ronald E. Ross, Long Island City, N. Y.

Application June 5, 1948, Serial No. 31,377

Claims. 1

This invention relates to devices for supporting various types and kinds of articles, such as belts, neckties and the like, to retain the same against accidental displacement. More particularly, the invention deals with a device comprising a frame having a pivoted link normally constituting part of the frame and movable into an open position to facilitate attachment and detachment of the article or an article supporting member with respect thereto.

The novel features of the invention will be best understood from the following descriptions when taken together with the accompanying drawing, in which certain embodiments of the invention are disclosed, and in which the separate parts are designated by suitable reference characters in each of the views; and in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a, bracket made according to my invention, indicating the manner of its use.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged exploded perspective view of parts of the bracket detached, preparatory to assemblage.

Fig. 3 is a section on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1, on an enlarged scale.

Fig. 4 is a plan view of a modified form of construction which I employ; and

Fig. 5 is a partial section on the line 5--5 of Fig. 4.

In Fig. 1 of the drawing, I have shown a bracket comprising a large elliptical loop member on the back rod ll of which is secured at widely spaced intervals, two attaching plate portions l2 and !2 for mounting the bracket in connection with a suitable support.

The front of the loop I3 is formed by independent and spaced members l3 and I4 joined by a bridging link IS. The members I3 and 14 preferably have on their upper surfaces, grooves, as at [6, for positioning articles, such as the buckles H of belts l8 thereon. The free end of the part E3 of the bracket has a recess [9 in the front face thereof and the remaining tongue member 2c has a socket 2! opening to the inner surface to receive part of a coil spring 22. This surface is also recessed, as at 23, to receive one end 24 of the spring. The link [5 has its pivot end recessed, as seen at 25, to receive the tongue 23, the end portion forming a tongue 23 on the link which seats in the recess l 9.

Considering Fig. 3 of the drawing, it will appear that the tongue 23 has a recess 27 on its inner surface registering with the recess 2! and adapted to receive the other portion of the spring 22. The tongue 23 also has a slit or recess 28 for receiving the other end 23 of the spring.

The tongues 23 and 23 have registering countersunk apertures 30 and 3| for receiving a rivet pin 32. In assembling the parts, the spring is tensioned to the position illustrated in Fig. 2, the

2 parts brought together with the ends 24 and 29 in the notches 23 and 28 and. the pin 32 is placed in position and riveted over to form the assemblage as seen in Fig. 3.

The free end of the link l5 has an undercut rounded surface 33 which seats upon a correspondingly formed end 34 of the part l4, so that when the link I5 is in normal position, held there by tension of the spring 22, the front part of the bracket becomes continuous and the article, such as the belts, are free to be moved thereover. In this way, any one belt can be positioned to the link station [5 and by simply moving the belt or the buckle ll thereof upwardly, the same can be quickly and easily detached from the bracket.

In the same sense, articles such as belts can be easily attached to the bracket by simply pressing upwardly upon the link [5 against the tension of the spring 22 and then moved onto the part 14 of the bracket, after which'the link will automatically close and the article can then be positioned at any desired position on the bracket.

In Figs. 4 and 5 of the drawing, I have shown a modified form of construction in which a suitable standard or base 35 is provided at the upper end of which are four extending arms 36, which in the construction shown, are wide spread to support a large loop frame 31. The frame 3! comprises two substantially similar U-shaped parts 38 and 38' to each of which two of the arms are secured, in such manner that U-shaped hangers, such as the hanger 39 shown in Fig. 5 are free to move to any position on the frame 31, and are retained against displacement therefrom. Each hanger 39 may be said to comprise a supporting ring having a swivelled pin #36 at its lower surface, which supports a spring clip 4| with which an article is adapted to be clamped. For example, a necktie may be secured in the clip 4| as initially indicated in dot and dash lines at 42 in Fig. 5.

Pivoted to one end of each part 38 and 38' is a link 43 and 43, similar in all respects to the link l5. These links complete the formation of the loop of the. frame 31 and facilitate coupling and uncoupling of the rings or hangers 39 from either end of the frame.

Devices of the type and kind shown in Fig. 4 may be utilized to display merchandise, such as neckties, facilitating the handling of the ties for examination, while retaining the same against displacement or shifting, and at the same time, the tie can either be detached from the supporting clip, or the ring or hanger 39 with the tie attached thereto may be removed from the frame 31. ,Devices of the kind shown in Figs. 4 and 5 can be used for mounting on a floor, counter or other support, providing a display completely around the device and articles of any type or kind can be mounted in connection therewith. In the same sense, devices of the type and kind, as shown in Fig. 1, can be utilized to support articles of any type or kind where the article has a loop or opening into and through which the rod of the bracket can be passed.

The device as shown in Fig. 1, is intended primarily for the support of belts in the home, so that belts may be kept at one definite position in a closet or on a closet door, to be accessible for use at any time.

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

1. An article supporting device of the character described comprising a frame in the form of an elongated loop, means for mounting the frame in connection with a support, with at least part of the loop spaced with respect to the support, said loop having a link portion pivotally mounted in the frame by a pivot pin the axis of which is in the plane of said loop, the link portion being normally supported in closed position completing the structure of said loop, said link being movable into raised position at right angles of the plane of the loop to provide in the loop an admission and discharge opening, tensional means normally supportin the link in closed position, and said tension-a1 means comprising a coil spring mounted on said pivot pin and housed and concealed within and between abutting surfaces of the link and frame.

2. An article supporting device of the character described comprising a frame in the form of an elongated loop, said frame being rectangular in cross-sectional form, means for mounting the frame in connection with a support, with at least part of the loop spaced with respect to the support, said loop having a link portion pivotally mounted in the frame by a pivot pin the axis of which is in the plane of said loop, the link portion being normally supported in closed position completing the structure of said loop, said link being movable into raised position at right angles to the plane of the loop to provide in the loop an admission and discharge opening, tensional means normally supporting the link in closed position, said tensional means comprising a coil spring mounted on said pivot pin and housed and concealed within and between abutting surfaces of the link and frame, the free end of the link having an offset part adapted to seat on a corresponding cutout portion of the frame in retaining the link in closed position, and the supporting means of said frame comprising apertured plates arranged at spaced intervals on one side of the frame.
