DISPLAY MOUNTED BY A BOW FROM A POST Filed Aug. 25, 1958 42, mwm

ATTOENEYi United States Patent 9 DISPLAY MOUNTED BY A BOW FROM A POST Elmer L. Stein, Milwaukee, Wis, assignor to Eye-Beam Displays, Inc., Milwaukee, Win, a corporation of Wiscousin Filed Aug. 25, 1958, Ser. No. 757,069

7 Claims. (Cl. 40-311) This invention relates to a display mounted by a bow from a post.

The display is preferably tensioned in accordance with the disclosure of my Patent No. 2,805,504 by means of a bowed strut, and this bow or strut is used to support the display from a tube which serves as a post. In the preferred practice of the invention, the tube is desirably, though not necessarily, mounted on a base in accordance with the disclosures of my co-pending application Serial No. 659,410. Any other arrangement for holding the post upright may be employed. See my copending application 720,274.

As a convenient means of attaching the bow to the post, the bow is provided intermediate its ends with a strip laminated to the bow and having its apertured extremities bent outwardly at an angle and engaged over the post. In the preferred construction, the tabs stamped from the mounting strip to form the apertures in the extremities thereof are held flat against the bowed strut by means of staples, the latter constituting a convenient means of holding the mounting strip to the bow.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a view in perspective showing a bow-mounted display.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary detail view in perspecn've showing a fragment of the how, a fragment of the post, and the mounting strip, the latter being separated from the post.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged fragmentary detail view showing a portion of the bow or strut and the mounting strip with its extremities flat against the bow or strut as nested thereon for shipment or storage.

The post 5 is desirably of circular cross section and may conveniently be a cardboard tube. It is held in a normally erect position by any suitable means, such as the base 6.

The display panel 7 has flanges 8 at its sides and marginal flanges 9 and 10 at its top and bottom, the latter being slit at 11 to receive the ends of the bow or strut 12 into the bight between the respective flanges 9 and 10 and the panel 7.

The mounting strip 13 is laminated to an intermediate portion of the bow or strut 12 by any appropriate means. Initially it is flat upon the bow as shown in Fig. 3. As a means of holding it against the bow, staples are shown at 14. The extremities 15 are foldable away from the how on the score lines 16 and are apertured by the partial severance of the tongues 17 which remain against the how when the extremities are folded up from the position of Fig. 3 to that of Fig. 2.

The apertures 18 are of suflicient diameter to receive the post 5 with a close fit. No exactness is necessary because of the tendency of the extremities 15 to spring apart as shown in Fig. 1, thereby clampingly engaging the post 5.

The bowed strut as herein disclosed, regardless of the manner of its connection with a post, and regardless of the character of the post, constitutes a novel and simple and convenient means of supporting not only the display herein selected to exemplify the invention, but a variety of other devices. I do not wish to be limited to details except as specifically recited in the accompanying claims.

I claim:

1. The combination with a post, of an article comprising spaced anchorages and provided with a resiliently flexible bow having initially greater length than the space between said anchorages and having its ends engaged with said anchorages, the bow being arcuately flexed therebetween, and means on said bow in connection with the post and constituting means for the support of the article from the post.

2. The combination with a post, of a resiliently flexible bow and an article with which the ends of the bow are connected under pressure, the bow being flexed and having a portion intermediate said ends mounted on said post.

3. A tensioned display in combination with a resiliently flexible bow having its ends engaged with said display and its intermediate portion arcuately deformed for the tensioning of said display, a supporting post and means connecting the bow with the post intermediate the ends of the bow for the support of the display from the post.

4.beThe device of claim 3 in which the post comprises a tll 5. A tensioned display in combination with a resiliently flexible bow having its ends engaged with said display and its intermediate portion arcuately deformed for the tensioning of said display, a supporting post and means connecting the bow with the post intermediate the ends of the bow for the support of the display from the post, the means connecting the bow with the post comprising a strip having an intermediate portion connected with the bow and having outwardly projecting apertured extremities, the bow being engaged in the apertures of said extremities.

6. In a device for mounting an article from a post, the subcombination which comprises a resiliently flexible bow having mounting means including a post-receiving aperture.

7; In a device for mounting an article from a post, the subcombination which comprises a resiliently flexible bow having mounting means including a strip laminated to the bow and having apertured extremities foldable away fi'om the bow and normally positioned thereagainst.
