JOSEPH CCAMPAmzzl United States Patent() M 3,082,986 FLAT IRON HOLDER Joseph C. Campanizzi, Rte. 2, Flushing, h10 Filed Feb. 7, 1961, Ser. No. 87,621 2 Claims. (Cl. 24S-117.7)

of the type which support the irons over and frequently spaced from the surface of the ironing board. This position of the holder subtracts from the total area of ironing surface available to thel operator of the iron and interferes with the ironing operation.

Other holders or supports proposed fail to provide means for supporting a steam iron at an angle in which the steam will notescape from the-iron. Y An object ofthepresent invention is to provide a flat iron holder which is adaptable for attachment to any ironing board whetherconstructed of wood or metal.

Anotherobject of the present. invention is to provide a flat iron holder which is adapted for attachment to an ironing board in such a position that the iron is exteriorly 3,082,986 Patented Mar. 26, 1963 iron rest 16 is conformably shaped to the base of a dat iron and has an upturned rim 20 extending thereabout provided with spaced notches 22 for the escape of steam in case a steam iron is used lwith the holder of the present invention.

Cooperating detent means is provided on the rest 16 and upon the support 14 for releasably holding the rest 16-in a position of adjusted movement about the rivet 18 as a vertical axis. This detent means consists in a plurality of spaced dimples provi-ded on the underface of the rest 16 and arranged in a ring about the rivet 18 and a like number of upstruck projections on the upper face of the support 1,4, the dimples being designated in FIGURE 5 by the reference numeral 24 and the projections by the numeral 26. v

Attac-hing means is provided by the present invention operatively connected to the support 14 and adapted to ax the support 1 4 to the ironing board edge. This attaching means includes a securing means, designated generally by thereference numeral 28 in FIGURE 5, and

cooperating connecting means on the securing means of and spaced from the edge of the ironing board, at an f' angle to the horizontal, or horizontal, longitudinally of the ironing board or transversely thereof as desired, or positioned over the ironing vboard in spaced relation thereto.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a dat iron holder for an ironing board which lends itself to easy attachment and detachment from a wooden or steel ironing board, one which may be manufactured in quantity at reasonable cost, one ha'ving interchangeable parts for adaptation to various ironing boards, and one which is highly effective in action.

These and other objects and advantages of the present invention will be fully apparent from the following description when taken in connection with the annexed drawings, in which:

FIGURE l is an isometric view of an end portion of an ironing board showing the holder of the present invention installed thereon;

FIGURE 2 is a view on an enlarged scale, taken on the line 2-2 of FIGURE 1;

FIGURE 3 is a bottom plan view;

FIGURE 4 is a view taken on the line 4 4 of FIG- URE 2;

FIGURE 5 is an isometric exploded view of the holder shown in FIGURES 1 t0 4;

FIGURE 6 is a fragmentary view showing another means of supporting the rest for the ironat an angle to the horizontal;

FIGURE 7 is a View taken on the line 7 7 of FIG- URE 6; and

FIGURE 8 is a sectional view similar to FIGURE 2, showing a modied form of the holder of the present invention.

Referring in greater detail to the drawings in which like numerals indicate like parts throughout the several views, in FIGURE l the reference numeral 10 designates an end and corner portion of an ironing board with the flat iron holder 12 of the present invention installed thereon.

iThe holder 12 comprises a support, designated generally by the reference numeral 14, adapted to be positioned adjacent the ironing board 10.

The at iron rest 16 is superimposed upon the support 14 and is connected to the support 14 for swinging movement about a connecting rivet 18 as a vertical axis. The

28 and the support 14 for a-flxing the support to the securing means 28. This cooperating connecting means includes a tongue 30 oni-the support 14 and aslideway slidably receiving the tongueV 30, the slideway being a space 32;be tween a vertically displosed plate member 34 and the bight 36 of a U-shaped clamp element 38. The plate 34 is fixed to the bight 36 with spacer blocks 40 at each end spacing the plate 34 from the bight 36 and providing the space 32 constituting the slideway for the tongue 30.

On the exterior face of the plate 34 are a pair of studs 42 and -44 which are receivable in any two of the four slots 46, 48, 50, and 52 in the tongue 38 when it is desired to position the support 14 at an angle to the horizontal, as shown in FIGURE 6.

Means is provided for making the holder 12 adaptable for either mounting upon a wooden ironing board or a metal ironing board. In FIGURE 2, it is mounted upon a metal ironing board and in FIGURE 8, it is mounted upon a Wooden ironing board. Specifically, this means includes a reversible gripping plate element 54 (FIG- URE 5) adjustably secured to the one leg 56 of the U-shaped element 38.

The plate element 54 is bifurcated and angled at one end to provide a pair of long legs 58 which engage the underside of the metal ironing board 10, as shown in FIGURE 2.

The midpart of the one end of the plate element 54 is bent at right angles to the legs 58 and provided with teeth 60 for digging into the underside of a Wooden ironing board 10', as in FIGURE 8, the midpart being designated by the numeral 62.

When the securing means 28 is used with the metal ironing board 10, short bolts 64 are employed with a wing nut 66 to secure the plate element 54 to the leg 56, as in FIGURE 2. When the securing means 28 is.

used with the wooden ironing board 10', the plate element 54 is reversed and a longer bolt 64' is employed with the wing nut 66 and a spacer element 68 is positioned between the plate element 54 and the leg 56, as in FIGURE 8.

In FIGURE 8, a modified form of the support 14 is shown and designated by the numeral 14. This form of the `support 14 has an upwardly and angled extension 70 rising from the upper end of the tongue 38' and providing means for supporting the iron rest 16 at an angle to the horizontal.

The U-shaped element 38 has its other leg 72 provided with a downwardly turned lip 74 which grippingly engages the ironing board cover when used with either the metal ironing board 10 or the wooden ironing board 10.

In use, the holder 12 is with ease and facility'attached to either a metal ironing board or a wooden ironing board, as shown in FIGURES 2 and 8, respectively. Neither the support 14 nor the support 14 may be employed and the iron rest 16 may be swung to any position desired with respect to the adjacent ironing board. Additionally, the tongue 30 may be adjusted vat an angle to the ironing board so that the iron rest 16 may be at an angle to lthe horizontal and also longitudinal of the ironing board if such a position lis desired.

What is claimed is: Y

1. In a dat iron holder, a U-shaped clamp element including a bight and a pair of legs projecting perpendicularly from said bight, one of the legs of said element having its free end formed to a downwardly-turned lip, said element being adapted to be positioned so that the bight is contiguous to and extends along anironing board edge with lsaid one leg extending over the upper Y face of said board and having the downwardly-turned lip engaging the upper face of said board and the other leg extending beneath and along the lower fface of said board and having the free end spaced from the under face of said board, a gripping plate element adjustably 4 and releasably attached to said other leg of said clamp way and projecting from said plate member, a' support embodying a i'lat plate andY a tongue projecting downwardly in a perpendicular direction from one end thereof, said tongue being provided with a plurality of slots arranged in spaced relation thereabout, and a at iron rest superimposed upon and carried by said at plate, said support being positioned so that said tongue may extend slidably into the slideway or engage the studs with selected ones of its slots to thereby aix said support to said clamping element so that said rest is in a horizontal position or a position at an angle to the horizontal. 2. The flat iron holder according to claim 1, wherein the other of the legs of said clamping element has its free end-portion angled upwardly, and said gripping plate is engaged by said angle portion of the other leg of said clamping element.
