ATTORNEYS 2,764,830 ARTICULATED BANNER UNIT CONSTRUCTKON Edward Frey, Akron, Ohio, assignor to The Massillon- (Ileveland-Akron Sign Company, Massillon, Ohio, a corporation of Ohio Application November 23, 1955, SerialNo. 548,594 12 Claims. (Chm-125) The invention relates to articulated banner unit construction particularly adapted for use as a pole sign, and including two parallel spaced banners mounted on an upright pole extending between the banners.

Prior to the present invention, such a double faced pole sign has usually included two parallel spaced panels mounted on an upright pole extending between the banners. Each panel has been made of stiff weatherproof cardboard. .Bolts, nuts, and lock-washers have been used to mount each panel on a cross-piece bolt connected to the pole.

Such double faced pole signs are used extensively on light poles located on a gasoline filling station lot. The stiff weatherproof cardboard panels have advertising copy on their exposed faces, and the panels are changed frequently to present diiferent advertising copy.

The filling stations served by a particular oil company obtain such double faced pole signs from the manufacturer under the orders of and through the oil company. The sign manufacturer in supplying a group of filling stations with original and replacement advertising panels for double faced pole signs has encountered numerous difficulties.

From the production standpoint, an undesirable time delay is encountered where the sign manufacturer does not have facilities for mounting on the weatherproof cardboard the lithographed sheets on which the signs are printed. In such a case, the lithograph sheets must be sent to a distant mounting specialist, and. the panels consisting of the lithographed sheets mounted on the stiff weatherproof cardboard must then be returned to the sign manufacturer. This mounting procedure may require a week or longer to carry out.

Since, a large number or" mountings are handled at one time, the transportation can be handled by truck.

In shipping the panels from the sign manufacturer to the individual filling station, economical parcel post cannot be utilized. The panels are usually each 3 feet by 5 feet or larger, which is too large for parcel post shipment even when each panel is centrally scored and folded the long way of the panel.

In mounting and changing the panels on the poles, considerable difficulties are encountered because of the substantial number of nuts, bolts, and washers which must be manipulated. l

The objects of the present invention include the provision of an improved construction particularly adapted for use as a double faced pole sign, and which is made of separable parts which in the knock-down condition may be packaged as a unit whose dimensions permit parcel post shipment.

Further objects of the present invention include the provision of such an improved double faced pole sign construction, and which requires the use only of two tools for initial mounting on a pole, the two tools being pliers and a screw driver.

Further objects of the present invention include the provision of such an improved double faced pole sign construction, and which includes mounting or tender parts which may remain permanently on a pole, and other parts including two sign elements which may be separated and removed from the permanent pole mounted parts without the use of any tools, whereby the sign elements may be easily and rapidly changed.

Further objects of the present invention include the provision of such an improved double faced pole sign construction, and which has a weight of only about half the weight of a similiar sign including two weatherproof cardboard panels.

Further objects of the present invention include the provision of such an improved double faced pole sign construction, and in which the parts are articulated and co-act with each other as a unit having Wind resistance superior to prior double faced pole sign constructions, and in which the two sign elements do not independently flop and jiggle up and down and sideways, as do the separate sign elements of usual constructions.

Further objects of the present invention include the provision of such an improved double faced pole sign construction, and in which the permanent pole mounted parts are adapted to fit on straight or tapered poles having any cross-section, whether circular or polygonal.

The foregoing and other objects are attained by the improved articulated banner unit construction, parts, combinations, and sub-combinations, which comprise the present invention, and the nature of which is set forth in the following general statment, and preferred embodiments of which, together with their mode of use, are set forth in the following description, and which are particularly pointed out and set forth in the appended claims forming part thereof.

The nature of the improvements of the present invention may be described in general terms as constituting articulated banner unit construction which may be erercted on a pole or pedestal which may be strai ht or tapered and which may have a circular cross section, a polygonal cross section, or an irregular cross section, by. the use of only two tools: namely, pliers, and a screw driver. Each articulated banner unit includes two banner elements or components, and mounting or tender parts for the banner elements or components. Some of the mounting or tender parts are permanently mounted on the pole on which the articulated banner unit is erected, and others of the mounting or tender parts are replaceable with replacement banner elements or components.

Each banner element or component includes a rectangular piece of flexible fabric or other flexible material on the exposed face of which a sign is printed or otherwise applied. The flexible rectangular piece is formed with a top end sleeve and a bottom end sleeve. A top pull bar is inserted in the top end sleeve and extends throughout the entire length thereof; and a bottom pull bar is inserted in the bottom end sleeve, and extends throughout the entire length thereof.

The top end sleeve and the top pull bar therein of each banner element or component has formed therein four sets of registering holes. The outer two sets of top holes are adjacent and equally spaced from the opposite ends of the top end sleeve and the top hole bar. The inner two sets of top holes are equally spaced on opposite sides of the longitudinal center line or axis of the flexible rectangular piece.

The bottom end sleeve and the bottom pull bar of the banner element or component have formed therein three sets of registering bottom holes.' The outer two sets of bottom holes are located adjacent and equally spaced from the opposite ends of the bottom sleeve and the bottom pull bar. The third set of bottom holes is located on the center line of the rectangular flexible piece.

The permanent mounting or tender parts of the improved articulated banner unit include a short pole band having a pair of hook brackets slidably mounted thereon, and the short pole band being made of flexible material, and being adapted to be secured at an upper position on the pole or pedestal on which the articulated banner unit is erected.

Each hook bracket includes a hook protruding outwardly therefrom, and has formed therein a threaded aperture in which a set screw is screwed to tension the short pole band against the pole or pedestal. The upper hook brackets are located on opposite sides of the pole or pedestal and are aligned with each other in a vertical median plane of the pole or pedestal.

The permanent mounting or tender parts of the articulated banner unit furthermore include a long pole band slidably mounting a pair of anchor plates which are generally similar to the hook brackets, and each anchor plate includes a portion protruding outwardly from the band and having formed therein a hole.

Each banner element or component is suspended from the hook of one of the hook brackets by a pair of angled hooks each including an elongated body portion having one end formed as a circular loop which is engaged with the upper hook of the hook bracket and having its other end formed as an arcuate hook which engages one of the inner sets of top holes in the top end sleeve and top pull bar of the banner element or component.

The lower end of each hook bracket suspended banner element or component has a yielding connection with one of the lower anchor plates, preferably by means of a tension spring including an elongated helical coil central portion with an elongated hook end engaged with the center set of registering holes in the bottom end sleeve and the bottom pull bar of the associated banner element or component. The other end of the elongated helical coil central portion of the tension spring terminates in a short hook end which is engaged with the hole in one of the lower anchor plates, said anchor plate being vertically aligned with the upper hook bracket suspending the banner element or component.

After the two banner elements or components are thus suspended and tensioned on opposite sides of the pole or pedestal, the outer set of top holes at each upper corner of each banner element or component is aligned with an outer set of holes in an upper corner of the other banner element or component. Similarly, the outer set of holes at each lower corner of each banner element or component is aligned with one of the lower corner sets of holes of the other banner element or component.

Tension means extend through each of the aligned sets of corner holes of the banner elements or components, and each tension means is connected with opposite corner portions of the two banner elements or components.

The short pole band 22 and the long pole band 23 are provided for mounting on a tapered pole or a pole having any cross section which may be engirdled and clamped by the short pole band 22. The short pole band 22 is a stainless steel flexible band which has a stainless steel slotted buckle and screw clamp 22-1 at one end. The other free end 122-15 of the band 22 is passed through the side opening slots 26 in the pair of hook brackets stage of the erection .24, withthe channel bar webs 24-1 of the hook brackets on the outside of the band 22.

After the hook brackets 2d are strung on the band 255, the band 22 is wrapped around the pole Ed, and the free hand end 22-2 is passed through the buckle slot of the buckle and screw clamp 22-1.

in Fig. 7, the band 22 and hook brackets 24 are shown after the band 22 has been loosely mounted on the pole in, after which the band 22 is tightened and the clamp 2.2-1 tightened, permanently mounting the band 22 and the hook brackets 24 on the pole 14, the brackets 24 being diametrically opposite each other, as best shown in Fig. 4.

The long band 23 is made of stainless steel and has a stainless steel slotted buckle and screw clamp 23-1 on one end and a free end 23-2 "which is first passed through the slots 32 of the two anchor plates 2:3, and then the band is wrapped around the pole M, and the free end 123-2 is passed through the slot of the buckle and screw clamp 23-1, and is tightened and securely and permanently mounted on the pole E4, the proper distance below the band 22. The tightening of the band 23 is best effected by the use of pliers, as shown in the lower portion of Fig. 4, and a screw driver shown in dash lines is used to tighten the clamp screw of the buckle and screw clamp 23-1. The pliers and screw driver .are also used to mount the band 22 and hook brackets .24- on the pole l t. The channel bar webs 2"--)l of the upper anchor plate portions 2& of the anchor plates 25 are on the outside of the band 23, and lower anchor plate portions 30 of the anchor plates 25 protrude outwardly from the pole the anchor plates opposite each other, and ban vertically aligned with the hook plates 24-, as best shown in Fig. 4.

Referring to Fig. 8, a pair of the nooks have their arcuate hook ends 3'7 hooked into the inner pair of sets of holes 20 in the top end sleeve to of the front banner element 15, the hooks 37 passing through the inner pair of holes in the top pull bar 38 located in the banner top end sleeve 16. The elongated hook body portions slope towards each other and the top circular hook loops 36 are overlapped and aligned with each other and then hooked onto the hook 227 of the front hook bracket 24,. and the top end of the front banner element is thus suspeneoed from the hook 27 of the front hook bracket 24, as shown in Fig. 4.

One of the tension springs 33 has its upper elongated hook end 44) engaged with the center set of bottom holes 21 in the bottom end. sleeve 17 and the bottom pull bar 19 located therein, as shown in Fig. 4. The elongated helical coil central portion 39 of the front "tension spring 38 in the retracted condition as shown in Fig. 4 has its lower short hook end ll spaced about 1 /2 inches above the lower anchor plate portion 36 of the front anchor plate 25.

Accordingly, when the front tension spring short hook end ll is pulled and the helical coil central portion 39 extended, and the short hook end 41 is hooked into the hole 31 of the lower anchor plate portion 39 of the front anchor plate 25', there is provided a yielding connection between the center of the lower end of the front banner element or component 15 and the lower pole band 23.

The two angled suspension hooks 34 engaged with the top end sleeve 16 and the top pull bar 'ilS therein, constitute upper rigid pivotal connecting means between the front banner element or component 15 and the hook 27 of the front hook bracket 2 The back banner element or component i5is similarly connected to the top poleband 22 and bottom pole band 23.

After the front and back banner elements or components 15 have been thus mounted on a pole such as the pole 14 shown in Fig. 4, each set of top holes 2% adjacent the end of the top sleeve 16 of each banner element or component 15 may be termed a set of corner holes which is located opposite a similar set of corner holes 16 in the other banner element or component 15. Similarily, each 25 being diametrically,

set of bottom holes 21 adjacent the end of the bottom sleeve 17 in each banner element or component may be termed a bottom set of corner holes located opposite a similar set of bottom corner holes Zll in the other banner element or component 15.

Each of the spacer rods 42 is made of aluminum alloy or similar bendable material. One of the spacer rods 4-2 is extended through each pair of aligned and opposite sets of corner holes 2t? and 21 of the banner elements or components l5.

In Fig. 4, at the top left corner of unit 10, one of the spacer rods 42 is shown in full lines just after being inserted in the left set of corner holes 213 of the back banner element or component 15; and this rod 42 is shown in dash lines after being extended through the lef set of corner holes in the front banner element or component 15.

At the right end of the top sleeves 16 in Fig. 4, another of the spacer rods 42 is similarly shown in full lines and in dash lines, and in a second set of dash lines is further shown after being bent back over and partly down behind the top end sleeve 16 and the top pull bar lit; contained therein of the front banner element or component 15.

The lower spacer rods 42 in Fig. 4 are shown after being completely installed in the unit 19.

Fig. 12. is a fragmentary isometric View showing one of the improved articulated banner units 16 assembled and erected on the pedestal 12 of Fig. 2.

The poles ll, 13, and M, and the pedestal each be broadly termed an upright support member.

The set screw 28 in each hook bracket 24 is used to apply additional tension to the upper pole band 22 on which the two hook brackets 24 are threaded, when the upper pole band 22 is installed on a pole, as above described. Similarly, the set screw 33 in each anchor plate is used to apply additional tension to the lower pole band 23 on which the two anchor plates 25 are threaced, when the lower pole band 23 is installed on a pole.

When the articulated banner unit 10 is installed 'on a tapered pole, the lower set screws 33 in the lower anchor plates 25 are screwed against the pole for applying additional tension to the pole band 23, as above described; and the lower set screws 33 have the additional function of preventing the anchor plates 25 and the lower pole band 23 from sliding up the tapered pole under the tension of. the springs 35.
