Application September 10, 1956, Serial No. 608,946
-1 Claim. (Cl. 248-411) This invention relates to supports, and in particular a bracket adapted to be positioned on a side of a ladder with a hook extended over a rung of the ladder and with bucket and brush retaining elements extended from the side of the ladder and positioned whereby paint from the brush drips into a paint bucket suspended from the device.
The purpose of this invention is to provide a bracket for holding a paint bucket and brush on a side of a ladder in which the device may readily be moved upwardly and downwardly on the ladder and wherein a painter may work with one hand holding the ladder and the other free to hold a paint brush.
Various types of brackets and supporting devices have been provided for holding paint buckets and brushes on a ladder, or other device, however, it is diflicult to provide a simple inexpensive bracket that is adapted to hold both the paint bucket and brush without using screws, bolts, and other fastening elements, and wherein the brush may readily be removed for use and also readily replaced in spring holding elements. With this thought in mind this invention contemplates a strip of material, bent in the form of a U and adapted to straddle a side rail of a ladder with a hook on one arm of the U-shaped portion extended over a rung of a ladder and with a spring clip and plate having a slot therein extended from the opposite arm and adapted to hold a paint brush and bucket, respectively.
The object of this invention is, therefore, to provide a device for supporting a paint bucket and brush on the side of a ladder in which the parts are stamped from sheet material.
Another object of'the invention is to provide a bracket for supporting a paint bucket and brush on the side of a ladder in which the device is adapted to be moved from one rung to another.
Another important object of the invention is to provide a bracket for supporting a paint brush and bucket on the side of a ladder in which paint dripping from the brush drops into the bucket.
A further object of the invention is to provide a bracket for supporting a paint bucket and brush on the side of a ladder in which the device is provided with an up wardly disposed finger ring by which the device may be adjusted or carried without getting paint on the hand.
A still further object of the invention is to provide a paint bucket and brush supporting bracket which is of a simple and economical construction.
With these and other objects and advantages in view the invention embodies a bracket having a substantially U-shaped body with one arm having a recess therein providing a hook and with a finger ring, brush retaining spring clips, and a web having a pail receiving slot therein extended from the other arm.
Other features and advantages of the invention will appear from the following description taken in connection with the drawing, wherein:
Patented July 28, 1959 Figure 1 is a crosssection through a portion of a ladder showing the improved paint bucket and brush supporting bracket on a side rail thereof with a hook of the bracket extended over a rung of the ladder.
Figure 2 is a front elevational view of one side of a ladder showing the improved paint bucket and brush supporting bracket positioned on a rail thereof, parts of the rail and handle of a brush carried by the bracket being broken away.
Figure 3 is an end elevational view of the bracket showing the bracket positioned on the rail of a ladder, the rail being shown in broken lines.
Figure 4 is a plan view of the bracket.
Referring now to the drawing wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts the improved paint bucket and bush supporting bracket of this invention includes a U-sh-aped body having a plate 10 adapted to be positioned upon a sloping surface 11 of a side rail 12 of a ladder having rungs 13, an arm 14 extended from one edge of the plate 10 and having a recess 15 therein providing a hook 16 and an arm 17 extended from the opposite edge of the plate 10 and having a Web 18 extended from an edge 19 of the arm 17, a spring clip having gripping jaws 20 and 21 extended from the upper edge of the web 18 and a finger ring 22 extended from the upper edge of the arm 17 and having a flange 23 secured, such as by welding to a tab 24 extended from the upper outer edge of the web 18.
The web 18 is provided with an inwardly extended tapering slot 25 and a downwardly disposed extension 26, which extends from the inner end of the slot is po-- sitioned to receive a pail or handle 27 of a paint bucket..
With the bracket formed as illustrated and describedl the body portion, which is U-shaped in cross section, is:
positioned over the upper edge of a rail of a ladder with the hook 16 extended over a rung, such as the rung 13 and with the bracket in position the bale or handle of a paint bucket is inserted through the slot 25 and dropped into the section 26 and a paint brush 28, having a handle 29 is suspended with the narrow portion of the handle snapped into the spring clips 20 and 21 whereby, with the parts positioned, as illustrated in Fig. 2, paint dripping from the brush drops into a bucket suspended by the handle or bale 27.
By placing the finger of a hand of a painter through the loop 22 the device may readily be gripped and moved upwardly, or removed from the ladder, or carried from one position to another without danger of soiling the: hands with paint or the like.
The device is illustrated as being adapted to be positioned on the right hand side of a ladder, and it will be understood that the device may be formed for use on the lefthand side of a ladder.
It will be understood that other modifications, within, the scope of the appended claim, may be made in the design and arrangement of the parts without departing from the spirit of the invention.
What is claimed is:
A paint bucket and brush support comprising a bracket including a plate of rectangular formation, a first arm extending from one longitudinal edge of said plate at. right angles thereto, said arm having a curved recessin one longitudinal edge thereof, providing a hook for mation for engaging a rung of a ladder, a second 3.1'11'12 extending from the opposite longitudinal edge of the plate at right angles thereto and in parallel spaced re lation to said first arm, a web extending from the outer longitudinal edge of said second arm at right angles thereto, an L-shaped slot comprising a first portion err-- tending from the free edge of said web toward the sec-- 0nd arm and having an extension disposed at right angles to said first portion to receive a bail of a bucket, and a handle n'ng integral with said second arm and having a flange thereon secured to a tab on said web and extending upwardly therefrom, and a spring clip secured to the outer face of said Web adjacent the upper transverse edge of said Web in parallel relation therewith to receive a handle of a paint brush so that the paint brush is positioned over the bucket to catch paint dripping from the brush.
