Description

Nov. 17, 1959 H. N. TICHNOR DISPLAY SUPPORT Filed Jan. 16', 1956 HEM fi FIG. 4

Y INVENTOR I M M ATTORNEY United States Patent DISPLAY SUPPORT Harry N. Tichnor, Waban, Mass., assignor to Colourpicture Publishers, Inc., Boston, Mass., a corporation of Massachusetts Application January 16, 1956, Serial No. 559,169

'5 Claims. (Cl. 248-223) The present invention relates to displays and, more particularly, to a novel support which may be adjusted to display postcards and the like of various selected sizes in' desired relative locations.

The primary object of the present invention is to provide a readily adjustable postcard display support characterized by a panel having an array of regularly spaced apertures, and a plurality of postcard retaining brackets arranged as desired on the panel by cooperating hook-like and detent-like projections that may be securely anchored in the apertures but deftly removed when convenient.

Other objects of the present invention will in part be obvious and will in part appear hereinafter.

The invention accordingly comprises the product possessing the features, properties and the relation of components which are exemplified in the following detailed disclosure, and the scope of the application of which will be indicated in the claims.

For a fuller understanding of the nature and objects of the invention, reference should be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, wherein: V

Figure 1 is an enlarged perspective view of two of a plurality of similar brackets, embodying the present invention, in association with an apertured panel or, socalled peg-board;

Fig. 2 is a top plan view of one of the brackets of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the bracket of Fig. 2;

Fig. 4 is a bottom plan view of the bracket of Fig. 2;

Fig. 5 is a front elevation of the bracket of Fig. 2; and

Fig. 6 is a rear elevation of the bracket of Fig. 2.

The illustrated display support comprises a panel 10 having a plurality of apertures 12 therethrough and a plurality of U-shaped integral sheet metal brackets 14 which may be connected to the panel in various locations and orientations to provide groups of associated abutments for retaining stacks of postcards of various sizes in various locations to best advantage. The centers of apertures 12, which are peripherally circular, are arranged in equidistant horizontal and vertical rows so that the centers of four collocated apertures define the corners of a square.

Each bracket 14 comprises: a rearward section 16 which abuts against panel 10 and is connected thereto in a manner to be described below; a medial section 18, at right angles to rearward section 16, for supporting the aligned bottom edges or retaining the aligned side edges of a stack of postcards to be displayed; and a forward section 20, at right angles to medial section 18, for retaining the face of the front postcard of the stack and for holding a price tag when desired.

Projecting from the free extremity of rearward section 16 are a pair of right angle hooks 22, 22 having extensions 24, 24 lying in a plane paralleling the plane of medial section 18, and continuations 26, 26 lying in a plane rearward face of section 16 is approximately equal to the thickness of panel 10 in order to enable hooks 22 to firmly grip panel 10. Struck from rearward section 16 are a pair of rearwardly extending arms 28, 28 having at their free extremities a pair of detents 30, 30. Arms 28, 28 lie in parallel planes that are perpendicular to both the planes of rearward section 16 and medial section 18 in order to permit detents 30, 30 to separate as arms 28, 28 enter apertures 12 and to lock resiliently behind panel 10. Additionally, arms 28, 28, by virtue of this orientation, provide maximum resistance to bending under the weight of a stack of postcards supported on medial section 18.

Rigidity is imparted to bracket 14 by a gusset 32 in rearward section 16 and a head 34 in medial section 18. Gusset 32 converges upwardly between the openings from which arms 28, 28 are struck in order to utilize as much of reaward section 16 as remains available. Bead 34 is depressed in order to avoid disturbing the flatness of the supporting surface presented by medial section 18.

A suitable price tag may be held by a pair of hooked lugs 36, 36 which are aligned with the side edges of forward section 20, and a hooked lug 38 which is aligned with the junction of forward section 20 and medial section 18.

The relative positions of hooks 22, 22 and arms 28, 28 must be-critically predetermined in order to permit bracket 14 to be connected to panel 10 with the plane of medial section 18 in horizontal or vertical orientation. When horizontal, medial section 18 is adapted to support the lower edges of a stack of postcards. When vertical,

medial section 18 is adapted to retain the side edges of the stack. Extensions 24, 24 and arms 28, 28 lie at the four corners of a rectangle so as to snugly engage the peripheries of four collocated apertures when medial section 18 is either horizontal or vertical. Pilot holes 40 and 42, preferably at opposite sides and opposite ends of medial section 18 guide the sheet metal blank, from which the bracket is formed, through the progressive die in which the blank is cut and shaped.

In practice, the brackets are connected to the panel as desired to display postcards and the like of various selected sizes in desired relative locations. For example, two brackets, arranged as in Fig. I, retain one of the lower corners of a stack of postcards and two brackets, arranged to mirror the brackets of Fig. 1, retain the other of the lower corners of the stack. Each bracket is connected to the panel first by introducing hooks 22, 22 into adjacent apertures 12 and then by snapping arms 30, 30 into collocated adjacent apertures 12. Each bracket is disconnected from the panel simply by reversing these steps.

The present invention thus provides a display support having few components of extreme simplicity and exceptional versatility.

Since certain changes may be made in the above prodnot without departing from the scope of the invention herein involved, it is intended that all matter contained in the above description and shown in the accompanying drawing shall be interpreted in an illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

I claim as my invention:
