PAINT BUCKET HOLDER 2 Sheets-Sheet 1 Filed April 10, 1950 I {:9 INVENTOR.

EUGENE PELLETIER FlG.6. W

The support also in. cludes an outer abutment portion 86, adapted to engage the outer surface of side rail 18, and a reversely bent forwardly extending supporting bar 88 which is similar to the bar 26 of the embodiment illustrated in Figure 1. The inner and outer clamps 30 and 50 which are suspended from the bar 38, are identical with the clamps similarly identified in Figure l and like reference numerals are applied thereto.

It will be observed that the clamping device affords a very firm support for the paint bucket and retains it in proper position for use. The cross pieces 44 and 56 of the clamps are curved to conform generally to the transverse curvature of the side walls of the bucket. cross piece 56, and due to the substantially greater length of the legs 52, engages the bucket well below its top and adds greatly to the stability of its support.

Clamps 30 and 5b are connected to the support bars 2G or 88 in such a manner as to urge the front support portions or 82 of the supports into firm engagement with the front surfaces 22 or 34 respectively of the side rails of the ladden- The arrangement is such that the entire concontact with the side of the ladder.

The clamping devices engage the paint bucket to hold the same firmly in position While at the same time they provide substantially no inter- Moreover, the

ference with free access to the interior of the V bucket. Thus the painter may use the bucket as in the usual manner and may employ the inwardly extending lip of the bucket for wiping excess paint from the brush.

Clamps and 5b may conveniently and economically be made from wire, and the support member H] may also be made of an appropriate size of heavy Wire, or bar stock, sufficiently strong to sustain the expected loads.

The construction is simple, cheap to manufac ture, and durable in use.

While reference is made to the device as a paint bucket holder, it is obvious that it is applicable to hold any type of bucket or can which is provided with an inwardly extending lip at its upper surface.

The drawings and the foregoing specification constitute a description of the improved paint bucket holder in such full, clear, concise and exact terms as to enable any person skilled in the art to practice the invention, the scope of which is indicated by the appended claims,

position.

What I claim as my invention is:

1. In a bucket holder, a hook engageable over a step of a ladder and including a portion extending outside one of the side members of the ladder, a support bar on said portion, and a pair of clamping members pivoted to said support bar, said clamping members comprising an inner member having depending legs each terminating in a hook engageable over the lip of a bucket, and a cross-member at the bottom of said legs curved to fit beneath the bucket lip.

2. A holder as defined in claim 1, said clamping members comprisingan outer member having depending legs considerably longer than the legs of said inner member, and a cross-member at the bottom of said legs curved to conform to the exterior of a bucket.

3. A bucket holder comprising a support having portions shaped to engage over a step and side member of a step ladder and including a horizontal bar spaced laterally from the side member of the ladder, an inner clamp formed of wire having spaced vertical legs, eyes at the upper end of said legs pivoted to said bar, and a curved cross piece connecting the lower ends of said legs adapted to extend beneath the lip of a bucket, an outer clamp formed of wire having spaced vertical legs, eyes at the upper end of said legs pivoted to said bar, and a curved cross piece connecting the lower ends of said legs curved to conform to the outer surface of a bucket.

4. A holder as defined in claim 3 in which the legs of the outer clamp are substantially longer than those of the inner clamp to position its cross piece substantially below the top of the bucket. s

5. A holder as defined in claim 4 including a cross bar connected between the legs of each of said clamps adapted to register when said clamps are in closed position, and locking means interconnecting said bars to hold said clamps in closed 6. A holder as defined in claim 5, said locking means comprising a screw carried by one of said bars and a tapped opening in the other member.

EUGENE PELLETIER.
