PAINT BRUSH HOLDERS Filed OCt- 9, 1953 INVENTOR.

JAMES J.- MHALE United States Patent PAINT BRUSH HOLDERS James J. McHale, Portland, Oreg.

Application October 9, 1953, Serial No. 385,200

1 Claim. (Cl. 248-113) This application is a supplementary application to my already pending application, Serial No. 315,686, on Paint Brush Hangers, now abandoned.

This invention relates to paint brush holders and is particularly adapted for holding paint brushes within paint containers.

The primary object of the invention is to design an adjustable clip for fitting all sizes of paint brush handles. This clip being associated with a hanging bracket adapted to be clamped to the side and upper rim of paint containers.

By the use of my new and improved paint brush hanger, the clip can be adjusted to any size of paint brush and it can be adjusted to any desired height relative to the paint container.

These and other incidental objects will be apparent in the drawings, specification and claim.

Referring to the drawings:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of my new and improved paint brush holder.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the adjustable clip removed from the hanging bracket.

Figure 3 is another type of hanging bracket.

Figure 4 illustrates how the hanging bracket is clamped to the side wall and upper rim of a paint container, having a rim inside of the container, only a partial view of the container is shown.

Figure 5 is the same as Figure 4 except that the bracket is shown adapted to a rimless type of paint container.

Referring more specifically to the drawings:

My new and improved holder consists of a U-shaped bracket 1, having legs 2 and 3 for embracing the side wall and upper rim of a paint container. These legs are joined together by a return bend 4 at their upper ends while their lower ends have spurs 5 and 6. The legs 2 and 3 are clamped together by the cross bolt 7 and the wing nut 8, there being several openings 9 within the legs for receiving this clamping bolt.

The adjustable clip 10 for holding the handle of the paint brush consists of two parts, namely adjustable jaws 11 and 12. These jaws are shaped as best illustrated in Figure 2 wherein they have bases 13 formed thereon, bent around at 14 at right angles to the jaws themselves.

These bases have slots 15 formed therein for receiving the clamping bolt 16. The clamping bolt 16 is adapted to enter one of the holes 9 of the bracket 1, after which a clamping bar 17 may be applied thereto for assisting in the clamping of the jaws to the desired adjusted position in regards to the space 18 provided therebetween for receiving the handle of the brush.

I will now describe how my new and improved paint brush holder is applied to the paint container. Referring to Figure 4, I show the bracket clamped to a paint container 19A having an inner rim 19. In this case the clamp 2,807,431 Patented Sept. 24, 1957 is applied as shown, the spur 5A of the leg 2 of the clamp contacting the inner surface of the container. The spur 6 contacting the outer side of the container.

In Figure 5 wherein the rim 19 is eliminated, the clamp is reversed as shown. By tightening the wing nut 8 on the bolt 7, the clamp is secured to the container under tension.

In Figure 4 I show a broken line position of a spacing bolt 8A, which in some cases assist in maintaining the distance between the legs 2 and 3, providing a tension and causing the clamp to grip the paint container. Spurs 22 may be formed on the bracket for causing a tension or holding the bracket at a desired elevation.

The outstanding feature of this supplementary application is to protect the principle of the adjustable clip 10 to fit any size paint brush handle, as well as adjusting the same to the desired elevation in regards to the holding bracket 1. t Figure 3 illustrates how the clip can be secured to a holding bracket that may be applied to a wall surface or other holding support, the same being attached to the portion 20 of the holding bracket 21.

My new and improved clip can be used for holding tools or other implements in tool cabinets and the like.

What is claimed is:

A paint brush hanger comprising a U-shaped bracket adapted in inverted position to straddle the wall of a paint container, the arms of said bracket being substantially straight with the free ends of said arms being turned inwardly toward each other for engaging the opposite sides of the wall of the container with the major portions of the arms spaced from each other to clear the rim of the container, said bracket being formed of a single strip of resilient material with the arms thereof normally tending to separate their inturned ends to enable ready straddling of the container rim and wall by said ends, said arms having a plurality of spaced bolt holes therein with corresponding holes in the respective arms substantially in alignment, a bolt extending through selected corresponding holes and spanning said arms to force the arms toward each other and tension the inturned free ends thereof against opposite sides of the container wall, said bolt selectively resting on the rim of the container to support the bracket at desired elevation, a clip removably mounted on the selected inner arm of said bracket for releasably suspending a paint brush by its handle over the container, said arms being of difiFerent lengths, and a spur struck inwardly from the longer arm of said bracket and between spaced bolt holes in said arm for engaging the container rim when the bolt is selectively positioned above said spur, whereby the inturned end of the shorter arm abuts the container wall between the other inturned end and said spur.
