BASEMENT CLOTHESLINE HANGER Filed July 5, 1949 E/ber-f J Cape/7y INVENTOR.

TTORNEY Patented Feb. 23, 1954 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,670,169 BASEMENT CLOTHESLINE HANGER Elbert J. Corpeny, Kansas City, one-half'to Carroll J. Klein,

Mo., assignor of Kansas City, Mo.

Application July 5, 1949, Serial No. 103,099

My invention relates to clothesline hangers,

and more particularly to basement clothesline hangers.

It is the principal purpose of my invention to carrying members is such that the clotheslines will flex enough to permit pushing of the entire hanger arrangement up above the bottom edges of the joists with the clotheslines drawn tight along the bottom edges of said joists.

More specifically my invention comprises a clothesline hanger comprising a bar-like menuher to which the clotheslines are secured, which is mounted on bracket members that are arranged in pairs and secured to adjacent joists so that said bracket members'extend obliquely in opposite directions from said joists toward the bar-like member, the diagonal or oblique arrangement of the body portions of said brackets serving to brace the structure so as to provide rigidity for the entire hanger.

Other objects and advantages of my invention will appear as the description of the drawings proceeds. I desire to have it understood, however, that I do not intend to limit myself to the particular details shown or described, except as defined in the claims.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a view in elevation of one of my improved basement clothesline hangers, showing the same attached to a joist, the joist being partly broken away.

Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view through a plurality of joists, these being partly broken away, showing a pair of my improved basement clothesline hangers in retracted position folded up between the joists and showing the clothes-- line in a taut or stretched position against the bottom. edges of the joists.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary sectional view showing the mounting of the hanger brackets on a joist, and

Fig. 4 is a view taken at right angles to Fig.

2 Claims. (01. 248-324) 7 1, showing the hanger in end elevation and fragmentary portions of a pair of joists in section. Referring in detail to the drawings, each of my improved basement clothesline hangers com-' prises a bar 5, which, preferably, is made of wood, and which, preferably, has openings t therein through which a clothesline may be passed for attaching the same to the bar-like member 5. In use two of the brackets are provided, with the bar-like members 5 spaced from each other as shown in Fig. 2. However, in Fig. 2 the hangers are shown in retracted position, as will be explained below, the number of joists intervening between the two spaced bars 5 being merely arbitrarily shown, the number ordinarily being much greater than that illustrated in Fig. 2.

Each of the hanger members further comprises two pairs of brackets, each of said brackets comprising bracket members i and 8. Said bracket members I and 8 are duplicates, except that the same are reversed in position. Each of said bracket members has an obliquely extending body portion and has an upper end portion 9, which is used for attaching the bracket to a joist ID, said attaching portion extending vertically or parallel to a face of the joist H1. The two bracket members i and B of a pair are secured to the faces of the joists it that are toward each other, and the attachment is made by means of a headed fastening member IL,

which is, preferably, a driven fasteningof a nail-like character, and preferably, washers I2 are provided between the head .of the fastening and the portion 9 of each bracket and between the joists and the portion 9 of each bracket so that the bracket members i and 3 can readily be swung from the position shown in Fig. 4 to that shown in Fig. 2.

Each of the brackets l and 8 has an attaching portion is at the lower end thereof that extends parallel to the portion 9, the portions 5 3 extending parallel to the side faces of the wooden barlike member 5, and being secured thereto by means of headed fastening elements, such as the bolts 1d,;which have heads l5 engaging the attaching portion it of a bracket member 8 and which are provided with wing nuts t it for clamping the parts in assembled position and to exert sufficient tension on the brackets '1' and 8 to create a frictional drag such that the brackets will be held in either a depending position, such as that shown in Fig. 4, or a raised position, such as that shown in Fig. 2. Washers I! are provided between the vertical faces of the bars 5 and the attaching portions i3, and a lock washer It may be provided between the attaching portion l3 on the member I and the wing nut 16.

It will be obvious that each of the hangers comprises a bar-like member '5 and two pairs of brackets I and 8, and that when the parts are mounted in position properly between a pair of joists, as shown in Fig. 4, the bar-like member 5 will be located midway between the joists in a position below the same and will"; be:; rig-idly. mounted its 'positi'on'below "the joists becauseof the diverging arrangement of the body portions of the brackets l and 8. It will be further" obvious that when the bracket members are swung,

to the position shown in Fig. 2 the bars 5' willbe located in a position parallel toLtheirrlbwered:

position, but above the bottoms 'of"the joists' I05 and if the line 19 is left in position it =will.be drawn.

When the hangers are moved to the position shown in Fig. 2 there will be nothing in sight to the casual observer except the parallel lengths of clothesline drawn taut across the bottom sides of the joists, the hanger members being located entirely; above'ssai'd bottom sides of "said joists.
