1 Claim. (Cl. 248-423) This invention relates to asupport hanger for use with pin-up boards and is particularly concerned with a hanger having two vertically spaced points of support arranged to cooperate with apertures in a pin-up board.
Pin-up boards have been used extensively as a means of conserving storage space by providing a single board or a series of boards with closely spaced apertures into which supports for various articles are mounted, so that the various articles, such as kitchen utensils, tools for the workshop, garage, or garden, or similar items, may be hung in easily accessible position. The hooks to be mounted in such boards have been comparatively expensive because they had to be as thick as the diameter of the apertures in the board" in order to provide the necessary support. Even so, the apertures sometimes become worn and substantially useless because the hooks rotate in the apertures when the apertures are larger than the diameter of the hooks.
In accordance with my invention the supporting hanger has one end inserted into one of the apertures of the pin-up board and has another projection spaced vertically from the end to fit into another aperture and provide spaced points of support that will prevent the supporting hanger from rotating regardless of the condition of the apertures. Another advantage of my construction is that the wire of which the hanger is made may be of less diameter than the diameter of the apertures so that the wire is cheaper and the hangers may be inserted in the apertures of the pin-up'board with greater facility. The offset at the end of the hanger and the projection spaced vertically from the offset cooperate with the apertures of the pin-up board to prevent the hanger from falling out as well as from twisting or turning relative to the board.
The structure by means of which the above and other advantages of the invention are attained will be described in the following specification, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawing showing a few preferred illustrative forms of supporting hangers embodying the invention, in which:
Figure l is a perspective view showing a pin-up board having attached thereto several different styles of support hangers embodying the invention;
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of one style of support hanger embodying the invention;
Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view showing the hanger of Fig. 2 partially inserted in a pin-up board;
Fig. 4 is a cross sectional view showing the hanger of Fig. 2 secured to a pin-up board;
Fig. 5 is a perspective view of another style of support hanger;
Fig. 6 is a perspective view of another support hanger; and
Fig. 7 is a cross sectional view showing the hanger of Fig. 6 secured to a pin-up board.
In the drawings, the reference numeral 2 indicates a conventional pin-up board which may be made of mice wood, metal, etc., preferably of synthetic hardboard. Board 2 is provided with a plurality of uniformly spaced apertures 3. The pin-up board may be of any convenient size and is secured to the wall of a kitchen, closet, workshop, garage or any other place where a person desires to keep a plurality of tools or utensils in easily accessible position. A plurality of support hangers 4, 5, 6 and 7 are shown mounted on the pin-up board to illustrate the manner in which dii'ferentstyles of hangers are arranged on a single board. It is obvious that other hangers of the same or different styles may be mounted in the same manner.
Referring to Fig. 2, the hanger 8 comprises a single length ofwire bent-at its upper end to form a retaining section 9, an offset 10, a straight section 11, and an article supporting section 12 extending at right angles to section 11. The length of offset 10 is approximately equal to the thickness of board 2 so that'when the hanger is mounted on the board, section 9 will lie against the rear surface of the board and section 11 willlie against the front surface of the board. The length of section 9 is slightly greater than the diameter of aperture 3 so that it will engage the rear side of the board above the aperture to retain the hanger against accidental displacement. The upper end of the hanger is inserted through the aperture in the manner indicated in Fig. 3. Section 11 of the hanger is provided. with a double bend to provide a rearwardly extending projection 13 parallel to offset 10 and spaced therefrom a distance equal to the vertical distance between adjacent apertures 3. After the upper end of the hanger is inserted through an aperture 3 the hanger is swung downwardly to bring section 11 against the front surface of the board, thus causing projection 13 to enter the aperture spaced directly beneath the aperture through which offset 10 extends. Projection 13 serves as a second point of suspension for the hanger and cooperates with section 9 to hold the hanger firmly in place so that it can not be displaced by the weight of any article supported on section 12. The force exerted by the weight of any article supported on section 12 tends to cause projection 13 to bind. The hanger may be removed from the board only by swinging it outwardly to disengage projection 13 from its aperture, and then continuing the upward movement of the hanger until section 9 can he slid out of its aperture.
The hanger shown in Fig. 5 is similar to that shown in Fig. 2, but is made of two wires welded together. One wire is bent to form a retaining section 14, an offset 15, a straight section 16 and a rearwardly extending projection 17. The other wire has one section 18 welded to section 16 and an article supporting section 19 extending at right angles to section 18. The hanger is mounted on the board in the same manner as hanger 8, and the sections 14 and 17 cooperate, just as sections 9 and 13, to ,hold the hanger against accidental displacement.
In Fig. 6, the hanger 20 is made of three wires. One wire is bent to provide a retaining section 21, an offset 22, a straight section 23, and a rearwardly extending projection 24. An intermediate section 25 has one end 26 welded to section 23 and the other end 27 welded to a section 28 which has its upper end bent to form an offset 29 and a retaining section 30. End 27 diverges outwardly relative to end 25. The lower end of section 28 is bent to form a forwardly extending projection 31. Section 30 is inserted through an aperture 32 in a small board 33. Projection 31 is inserted in another aperture 32 in board 33 positioned directly below the aperture through which section 30 is inserted. Section 21 is then slid through an aperture 3 in board 2, and hanger 20 is swung downwardly to engage projection 24 with the aperture below the one through which section 21 is inserted. Another hanger 20 is mounted on board 2 in laterally spaced relationship with its oifset 30 and projection 31 engaged with apertures 32 to support the other end of board 33. As shown in Fig. 7, the board 33 is inclined slightly, because of the angle of end 7 of section 25, and serves as a support for shoes 34.
Although the hangers 4, 5, 6 and 7 shown on board 2 are not specifically described, it should be noted that each has a retaining section similar to 9', 14 and 21, and a rearwardly extending projection similar to 13, 17 and 24 of the hangers that are specifically described. In hanger 6 the rearwardly extending projection is not aligned vertically with the retaining section, but these two parts cooperate in the same manner as in the other hangers.
While I have described afew preferred embodiments of my invention in considerable detail, it will be understood that the description thereof is intended to be illustrative, rather than restrictive, as many details may be modified or changed without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention. Accordingly, I do not desire to be restricted to the exact construction described.
I claim:
A support hanger adapted to be mounted on a pin-up board having opposed surfaces and at least one pair of vertically spaced apertures, said support hanger formed from a unitary wire member and including a vertical section adapted to lie at least adjacent one surface of said board, one portion of said wire member bent to form an integrally attached article supporting section,
another portion of said wire member connected to an end of said vertical section in spaced relation to said one portion and bent to form an offset section which is adapted to be inserted in the uppermost of said pair of apertures, the end of said offset section bent to form a retaining section, at least a portion of said retaining section adapted to engage the surface of said board opposite to said one surface, and a portion of said wire member in spaced relation to said ofiset section folded over itselfuntil the thickness of the folded portion of the wire is substantially equal to one of the dimensions of said lower aperture, said folded wire portion in substantially the same plane as the ofiset and retaining sec tions and adapted to penetrate said lower aperture to firmly retain said support hanger on the board.
