FLAT IRON HOLDER Filed June 13, 1961 qaw rates Unite $352,439 Patented Sept. 4-, 1962 3,l52,439 FLAT IRON HOLDER Frederick Marx, Sr., 2205 N. 7th Ave., Lake Worth, Fla. Filed June 13, 1961, Ser. No. 116,760 Claims. (Cl. 248-4172) This invention is an improvement in flat iron holders or the like and is of simple, novel and efficient construction; and the principal objects of the invention are to provide a flat iron holder consisting of a back plate adapted to be pivotally mounted on an ironing board and carrying tynes fixedly secured thereto, said back plate also adjustably comprising a body portion having a bottom and opposite sides, thereby rendering it possible for the holder to receive flat irons or the like of various thicknesses, the back plate carrying the tynes also being adjustable in spaced relation to the body of the holder; also to provide a novel flat iron holder in which the design of the tynes offers a better means of securing an easier placement of the iron into the holder; also to provide a novel flat iron holder embodying novel hook-like supporting legs or feet at the front bottom of the body portion, thus providing a more simplified and better means of supporting the holder when stored in a vertical position, the legs or feet forming hooks which may be readily hung over a nail or the like to hold the device on a vertical wall when not in use.

Other minor objects of the invention will be hereinafter set forth.

I will explain the invention with reference to the accompanying drawing, which illustrates one practical embodiment thereof, to enable others to adopt and use the same; and will summarize in the claims the novel features of constructions, and novel combinations of parts, for which protection is desired.

In said drawing:

FIG. 1 is a top perspective view of my novel flat iron holder.

FIG. 2 is a perspective view similar to FIG. 1 of the rear end of the holder but showing the back plate separated from the body portion of the holder to better illustrate the means for adjustably mounting the body portion on the back plate.

FIG. 3 is a view similar to FIG. 1 showing the holder applied in upended position to an ironing board.

FIG. 4 is a view similar to FIG. 3 but showing the holder disposed flat upon the ironing board.

As shown in the drawing, my novel iron holder preferably comprises a back plate 1 which preferably comprises a strip of metal or other durable material, of length somewhat greater than the width of the flat iron to be held in the holder, the back plate 1 having both ends flanged forwardly as at 1a, and each flange being provided with transversely spaced aligned holes 1b for the purpose hereinafter set forth.

The back plate 1 supports a pair of spaced tynes, each being symmetrical with respect to the other, and consisting of flattened wire or other loops 2 and 3 having sub stantially parallel spaced runs, the outer portions of which loops extend normal to the back plate 1 as shown, and the intermediate portions being bent as at 201, 3a, respectively, to underlie the back plate 1, the same being secured thereto by spot welding or the like so as to be fixedly mounted thereon.

The rearmost portions of the loops 2 and 3 are bent as at 2b, 3b, to extend outwardly beyond the flange portions 1a of back plate 1 as shown, the outer ends of the bent portions 2b, 3b, forming eyes 2x, 3x, disposed parallel with the plane of the back plate 1 through which eyes 2x, 3x, an elastic or other cord 4 may be passed to hingedly connect the back plate 1 with the top of an ironing board B, whereby the back plate I may be swung to lie parallel with the board B, as shown in FIG. 3, or swung into position normal to board B, as shown in FIG. 4.

Instead of cord 4 passing through the eyes 2x, 3x, the eyes might obviously receive hooks (not shown) at the ends of the elastic cord 4 in the usual manner.

It is noted that when the back I is normal to board B, as shown in FIG. 4, the bent portions 2b, 3b of the tynes will maintain the bottom of the back plate ll spaced from the cover of the ironing board B to prevent scorching thereof by a hot iron held in the holder.

The body of the holder consists of a bottom plate 5 which has its sides flanged as at 5a, the flanges So being provided with perforations 5/), respectively, adapted to register with the perforations 1b in the flanges 1a of the back plate 1, whereby a screw 6 may be inserted through any of the registering holes 5b, 1b, and thereby adjust the bottom plate 5 towards or from the cover of ironing board B when the holder is in the position shown in FIG. 4, and simultaneously to adjust the bottom 5 towards or from the tynes 2, 3, fixedly carried by the back plate 1, thereby adjusting the holder to suit flat irons of different heights or thicknesses, while at the same time preventing the heat of the iron from scorching the cover of the ironing board B.

As shown, the forward ends of the flanges 5a are preferably rounded as at 5c and terminate short of the outer end of the bottom plate 5, which outer end is curved downwardly as at 5d and has its outer edge turned back on itself as at 5e to stiffen the same, the curved portion 5a facilitating entry of the heel of the flat iron into its position in the holder.

In order to further support the front end of the bottom plate 5, I provide novel supporting legs or feet consisting of a length of wire 7 which extends across the bottom plate 5 on the underside thereof and which is preferably spot welded or otherwise secured thereto, the ends of the wire 7 extending beyond the sides of the bottom plate 5 and being offset downwardly as at 7a, the outer ends thereof being further bent rearwardly as at 7b, so that when the holder is in the position shown in FIG. 4, the bent portions 7b will further support the outer end of the bottom plate 5 upon the ironing board B assisted by the curved portion 5d at the outer end of the bottom.

The legs or feet 712 not only assist in supporting the weight of the iron in the holder when the holder is in the position shown in FIG. 4, but the legs 7b also serve as hooks for conveniently hanging the holder on a nail or the like on a vertical wall to support the holder when not in use, the legs 7b then serving as books when so supporting the holder.

Thus I have provided a holder in which the bottom is adjustable with respect to the tynes permitting any flat iron or the like to be held therein regardless of its height or thickness, for obviously a thick flat iron would require the tynes 2 and 3 to be further spaced from the bottom 5 than in the case of a relatively thin flat iron; also the arrangement is such that the tynes offer a better means of securing and easier placement of the iron into the holder; also the design of the legs 7b or supporting means at the front bottom of the holder offers a more simplified and better means of supporting the holder when stored in a vertical position on a nail or the like by hooking the bent ends 712 of the legs over a nail or other supporting means.

I do not limit my invention to the exact form shown in the drawing, for obviously changes may be made therein within the scope of the claims.

I claim:
