Nov. 11, 1958 D. R. ROGERS El'AL 5 SHELF AND POLE BRACKET Filed Oct. 12, 1955 INVENTORQ DELMAR R- ROGERS ELEANOR L- ROGERs errokuar United States Patent SHELF AND POLE BRACKET Delmar R. Rogers and Eleanor L. Rogers,

. Minneapolis, Minn.

Application October 12, 1955, Serial No. 539,965

1 Claim. (Cl. 211-90) This invention relates to brackets and especially to a shelf and pole bracket designed for use in apparel closets.

The shelf and pole bracket of this invention comprises a vertical bar for attachment to a vertical wall of an apparel closet with a horizontal bar extending outwardly from the vertical bar. A depending hook is integrally formed on the outer end of the horizontal bar for the support of a pole. An oblique bar is connected between the hook and the vertical bar providing an integral brace for the bracket.

A plurality of the shelf and pole brackets spaced apart in an apparel closet will provide adequate support for a shelf and also for a pole from which is suspended garments on hangers.

It is an object of this invention to provide a combination integral shelf and pole bracket.

It is another object of this invention to provide a shelf and pole bracket which is so constructed that no extra bracings or supports are required.

It is a still further object of this invention to provide a combination shelf and pole bracket having its elements so coordinated that it will support a very heavy load.

These and other like objects that will hereinafter appear, are accomplished by the novel and practical construction, combination and arrangement of few and simple parts hereinafter described and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, constituting a component of this disclosure and in which:

Figure l is perspective view of the combination shelf and pole bracket.

Figure 2 is a view in perspective of the combination shelf and pole bracket assembly.

Referring more particularly to the drawing, is the combination shelf and pole bracket. The bracket 10 comprises a vertical or rear bar 12 and a horizontal bar 14, extending outwardly from the vertical bar 12. A depending hook 16 is integrally formed on the free or outer end of the horizontal bar 14. An oblique bar 18 is connected between the upper end of the hook 16 and adjacent the lower end of the vertical bar 12. The oblique bar 18 serves as a brace for the bracket 10 and aid in supporting loads or weights applied to the bar 14 and hook 16.

The vertical bar 12 is provided with spaced apertures 22 so that screws or nails can be employed to secure the bracket 10 to the wall of a closet. The horizontal "ice bar 14 is provided with apertures 24 so that a shelf 30 can be secured to the top side of the bar 14. A relatively large hole 26 is provided in the oblique bar 18 beneath the aperture 24 adjacent the outer end of the bar 14 so that a screw driver can easily reach a screw in this aperture 24 in bar 14.

Figure 2 discloses a plurality of the brackets 10 spaced apart from each other showing the shelf 30 supported on the bars 14 and a pole 34 supported in the books 16. Our combination shelf and pole bracket 10 is preferably made from wrought iron, although other suitable materials may be utilized.

The bracket 10 is formed of few parts. The vertical bar 12 is secured by screws to the wall and the shelf 30 is secured by screws to the bar 14. The pole 34 is supported by the hook 16 which is formed integrally with the bar 14 of the bracket 10. The brackets 10 when spaced properly in a closet will prevent sagging poles and shelves. The brackets 10 can be spaced in a closet to accommodate its loading requirements.

The brackets 10 when spaced apart in a closet act as automatic separators for different persons apparel. The bracket 10 is easily fabricated and can be quickly installed because of its simplicity.

It will be understood that the device is capable of many modifications in structure and design without de parting from the spirit of the invention within the scope of the appended claim.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed and desired to be secured by Letters Patent of the United States, is:

In a shelf and pole bracket comprising a vertical rear bar for attachment to a vertical support, a horizontal bar being substantially the same length as the vertical rear bar extending outwardly from the upper end of the vertical rear bar for supporting a shelf, a depending portion formed on the outer end of the horizontal bar, an outwardly and upwardly extending portion formed on the lower end of the depending portion thereby forming a hook for supportinga pole, an oblique bar connected between the upper portion of the rear side of the depending portion and adjacent the lower portion of the vertical rear bar thereby providing a brace means for the horizontal bar and for the hook, the said hook being spaced below the portion of the depending portion to which the said oblique bar is connected.
