WALL SUPPORT FOR SHOWER FITTINGS Filed Aug. 26, 1964 INVENTORS 15392.95 [iaer zzzzierizazz a/x Q61 Mwer%sm United States Patent 3,259,350 WALL SUPPORT FOR SHOWER FKTTINGS Ernst Liider and Giinter Buzzi, Schiitach, Black Forest,

Germany, assignors to Hans Grohe Kommanditgeseilschaft, Schiltach, Black Forest, Germany, a corporation of Germany Filed Aug. 26, 1964, Ser. No. 392,206 2 Claims. (Cl. 248-251) The invention relates to shower fittings, wherein the hand spray can be fitted on a holder which is mounted in vertically adjustable manner on a vertically mounted wall bar. Since shower compartments are frequently tiled only half way up, it is known to make the upper wall support adjustable in construction, for example by constructing the base portion fast with the wall as a screw-threaded sleeve, the associated screw-threaded pin being fixed on the rod holder head. Owing to the diameter difference between the two parts engaging in one another, and also owing to the fact that depending on the setting a portion of the pin screw-thread may remain visible, the adjustable wall support does not have a very finished appearance but rather looks like a makeshift arrangement. The object of the invention is to overcome this disadvantage. According to the invention it is proposed that a thin-walled covering sleeve is fixed co-axially to the wall support portion which carries the smaller-diameter guide portion, the said sleeve fitting over the larger-diameter wall support portion, so that both portions of the wall support appear to form an integral single unit. In the preferred form of embodiment of the invention, which proceeds from a wall support wherein a screw-threaded sleeve is arranged on the base portion fast with the wall and the screw-threaded pin is arranged on the rod holder portion, the holder head for the Wall rod is constructed as a cylindrical profiled element which is continued towards the wall in the identical-diameter covering sleeve, whilst the screw-threaded sleeve fast with the wall fits flush into the covering sleeve. In this way, the wall support gives the impression that its shank is a solid single-piece unit.

One example of embodiment of the invention will be described hereinafter and explained with reference to the accompanying drawings wherein:

FIGURE 1 is a lateral view, in section, of the wall support and,

3,2593% Patented July 5, 1966 FIGURE 2 is an associated front view with the rod holder portion removed.

10 designates the wall plate of the base portion, 11 the screw-threaded sleeve projecting therefrom. Connected to the latter is the screw-threaded pin or extension 12 on the holder head 13, whose supporting bore for accommodating the wall rod (not shown) is designated as 13a. The covering sleeve 14 is titted over an extension or shoulder 13b at the rear side of the holder head 13; it is approximately the same length as the screw-threaded pin 12 and its internal clear diameter corresponds to the outer diameter of the screw-threaded sleeve 11 so that the two parts slide easily on one an other without scratching each other. In the drawings, the thickness of the cover sleeve 14 and also the play between the covering sleeve and the screw-threaded sleeve have been somewhat exaggerated; in actual fact, the two parts lie so closely on one another and the covering sleeve is so thin that the shank of the wall portion has the appearance of a one-piece unit.

What is claimed is:

1. A bracket adapted to mount a rod, the bracket comprising a base portion adapted to be mounted on a wall, an internally threaded sleeve at right angles to and connected to the base portion, a rod holder extension with external threads adjustably connected to the sleeve, and a cover sleeve slidably mounted on the first mentioned sleeve and engaging a shoulder on a head of the extension.

2. A bracket according to claim 1, in which the holder head extension is constructed as a cylindrical profiled element which is continued in the direction towards the base portion and the threaded sleeve is integral with the base portion and fits into the cover sleeve.
