GAYLOR 3336 217 CYMBAL MOUNTING AND RETAINING DEVICE Filed July 26, 1965 2 Sheets-Sheet (I INVEN TOR. 3/?064 51 2x4022 United States Patent 3,336,827 CYMBAL MOUNTING AND RETAINING DEVICE Bruce Gaylor, 74-45 Yellowstone Blvd., Forest Hills, N.Y. 11375 Filed July 26, 1965, Ser. No. 474,736 10 Claims. (Cl. 84-422) This invention relates to a device to facilitate the mounting and removal of a cymbal from its supporting stand, and which will also effectively retain the cymbal in its operating position mounted on the stand.

The most widely used and conventional means for mounting and retaining a cymbal on its stand, is a wing nut or the like which is threadably mounted on the reduced threaded portion of the cymbal stand over the cymball. This type of arrangement causes an inconvenience in necessitating the removal of the wing nut when the user desires to either remove or replace the cymbal. The need for replacing the cymbal can occur frequently enough to be a problem to the user, in that for each removal or replacement of cymbal, it is necessary to remove the wing nut, effect the replacement or removal of the cymbal, and then to re-mount the wing nut on the threaded post. Where there are a plurality of cymbals involved, and where such replacemenet must be done within a restricted period of time, this can be a vexing detail to the user. Furthermore, since the wing nut must be completely removed, in order to mount a new cymbal, there is a possibility that the wing nut may be lost or misplaced.

Accordingly, it is the primary object of this invention to provide a device for retaining a cymbal in operative position on its stand, which will facilitate the removal and replacement of a cymbal thereon.

It is a further object of this invention to provide a device for effectively retaining a cymbal on its stand which will facilitate removal and mounting of the cymbal on the stand without requiring the removal of any portion of the retaining device.

It is still a further object of this invention to provide a device for retaining a cymbal on its stand, wherein the user can mount or remove the cymbal with both hands simultaneously.

It is yet another object of this invention to provide a device for retaining a cymbal on its stand, wherein the said device is adjustable to positions facilitating the mounting and removal of the cymbal where the user is permitted to use both hands in either the mounting or removal operation.

Additional objects and novel improvements will become more apparent from the following detaileddescription and claims when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings in which FIGURE 1 is a perspective view of a form of the invention, showing a typical cymbal mounted on a stand, and retained thereon by use of the improved cymbal retaining stand,

FIGURE 2 is a cross-sectional view taken along plane 2-2 of FIGURE 1, showing internal details of the invention,

FIGURE 2A is a longitudinal cross-sectional view of a modification of the invention,

FIGURE 3 is an exploded elevation of the invention, as seen in FIGURE 1,

FIGURE 4 is a longitudinal cross-section through a modified form of the invention,

FIGURE 5 is an exploded elevational view partly in section of still another modification of the invention,

FIGURE 6 is a perspective view of the modified form of FIGURE 5,

FIGURE 7 is a cross-sectional view of the modified form, as shown in FIGURE 6, taken along plane 7-7 showing additional details thereof,

FIGURE 8 is an elevation view partly in cross-section of a further modification of the invention showing the positions for mounting and removal of the cymbal.

Referring to FIGURES 1, 2 and 3, one form of the novel cymbal retaining device facilitating the removal and mounting of a cymbal is seen in use with the usual cymbal stand 10 which has at its upper end the reduced threaded post 11. Due to the reduction in diameter in providing the post 11, shoulder 12 is formed upon which is mounted a supporting disc 13 which is centrally perforated, so that it can be mounted over the post 11. The usual felt washer 14 is mounted over the disc 13, and a sleeve 15 fits snugly over the post 11 between the said post and the felt washer 14, and is supported by the disc 13. The cymbal 16 with a central perforation 17 is then mounted on the post 11, is supported on the felt washer 14, and encompasses the sleeve 15 which is made from rubber or the like.

The foregoing construction is all conventional, and is described herein for the purpose of providing a better understanding as to how the novel retaining device combines and cooperates with the said conventional cymbal stand construction. The novel retaining device 18 is a thimble-like component having a central bore 19 with internal threads adapted to engage and be threadedly mounted on the threaded portion of the post 11. At the upper end of the bore 19, there is provided a latch 20 which is pivotally mounted on a pin 21 within an opening in the retaining device 18. The latch 20 has an inclined portion which extends downwardly and outwardly of the opening 22 formed in the side of the retaining device. The lower edge 23 of latch 20 is curved and conforms to the curved lower portion of the component 22 with sufficient clearance so that the latch can pivot inwardly and outwardly relative to the said opening 22. At the inner portion of the latch, there is a retaining lip 24 which abuts the inner wall of the retaining device, thereby preventing the latch from moving outwardly beyond the position shown in FIGURE 2. A spring 25 is attached to the latch and to the wall of the bore 19 biasing the latch to its outermost position as seen in FIGURE 2.

It is apparent then that the latch can move inwardly in opposition to the spring 25 to a position within the bore 19, which would permit the mounting or removal of cymbal 16. There is also provided a locking screw 26, as seen 'better in FIGURE 3, which will prevent loosening of the retaining device 18 when mounted on the post 19, due to vibrations. The said locking screw 26 can be tightened to bear upon the post 11 to prevent vibrational loosenmg.

Thus, to mount the cymbal 16, one merely :places the cymbal with the aperture 17 over the retaining device 18, and then forces the cymbal downward. The cymbal periphery about aperture 17, will then engage the latch 20, forcing it inwardly against the spring 25, until the cymbal has passed below the latch, and then the latch \mll spring outwardly under the action of the spring 25, and will effectively prevent the cymbal from leav' g its operative position about the post 11.

To remove the cymbal, one manually presses the latch 20 inwardly until no substantial portion of the latch extends beyond the exterior of the retaining thimble 18, and the cymbal can then now be moved upwardly and over the latch until it is free of the retaining thimble. It is to be understood that the bore 19 within the retaining thimble, is of large enough diameter to accommodate the full inward movement of the latch 20' in order to permit mounting and removal of the cymbal without obstruction.

The modification shown in FIGURE 4 is designed for the particular purpose of facilitating a user to remove a particularly heavy type cymbal requiring the use of both hands. It is to be noted that the device incorporates the same basic structure as shown in FIGURE 2, and the same reference numerals used in FIGURE 2, for the equivalent structure, will also be used in connection with FIGURE 4.

Accordingly, the modification of FIGURE 4 provides a modified retaining device refer-red to here as 30, having a central chamber 31 in which is mounted a latch 32 mounted on a pin 33 secured to the walls of the chamber 31.

A lock 34 is mounted longitudinally through the top of the retaining device 30, and is provided with threads 35. The lock 34 is restricted to rotary motion with respect to the retaining thirnble 31, and is retained in a longitudinal movement by shoulders 36 and 37. The latch 32 is provided with a ratchet gear 38 which engages the threads 35 of the lock 34. Accordingly, rotation of lock 34 will move the latch 32 from an outermost position 39, to an innermost position, wherein the latch will be fully within the chamber 31, offering no obstruction to mounting or removal of a cymbal thereon. Chamber 31 has an opening 40 through which the latch 32 can be reciprocated. The latch 32 has a lower curve 8, surface 41, which moves with slight clearance through the opening 40, and when the latch 32 is in its outermost position, as shown in the dotted lines of FIGURE 4, the said lower curve 8, surface 41, will prevent the cymbal 16 from leaving the stand.

Accordingly, it is therefore apparent that when one desires to use both hands to remove a particularly heavy cymbal, then the operator merely rotates the lock 34 until latch 32 is in its innemost position. The latch will be retained in that position by the lock 34, while the operator can now apply both hands to the cymbal and cause its removal from the stand. Of course, to mount the cymbal on the stand, the lock 34 is also used to keep the latch 32 in its innermost position, so that the cymbal can be mounted on the stand. After the cymbal has been mounted on the stand, the lock 34 is rotated to bring the latch 32 to its outermost position, wherein the cymbal is prevented from leaving the stand.

It is to be noted that the diameter of the retaining devices in both FIGURES 2 and 4, is such that it will conform to the outer diameter of the post 10, and the lowermost edge of the retaining devices will bear upon the sleeve of either modified form thus far referred to.

In FIGURE 2A, a modified form is shown wherein two similar latches are used, rather than the single latch shown in FIGURE 2. This is for the purpose of providin g a more effective symmetrical retaining device, where it may be desired.

Accordingly, latches 50 and 51 are pivotally secured within the openings 52, 53, and are biased to the retaining outward position shown in FIGURE 4A by means of a spring 54 which is mounted at its opposite ends to the latches 5051. The remainder of the structure is similar to that shown in FIGURE 2, and the same reference numerals applied thereto, are used in FIGURE 4A. The portion of the device shown in FIGURE 4A is similar to that shown in FIGURE 2, wherein to mount the cymbal, it is merely placed over the retaining device and pressed down to force the latches 50-51 inwardly to the action of the spring 54. Latch 50 has a retaining lip 55, and latch 51 has a similar retaining lip 56, to prevent the latches from moving entirely outside the retaining device. To remove the cymbal from the stand provided with a retaining device shown in FIGURE 4A, one merely presses both latches 50 51 simultaneously inward against the action of the spring 54, and with the other hand, the cymbal is removed from the stand.

In FIGURE 6, another form of the invention is shown which will also permit the user to use two hands in lifting a heavy cymbal on or off the stand. The same reference numerals that we used in FIGURE 2, will be applied to the conventional cymbal stand structure shown in FIG- URE 5. A modified retaining member 60 is provided with internal threads 61 which cooperate to threadedly mount the member on post 11. The retaining member 60 has a pair of spaced parallel standards 62 and 63, between which is mounted an adjustable latch 64, which can be moved from a retaining position such as shown in FIG- URE 5, to an open position, wherein the latch 64 does not provide any lateral construction to the removal or mounting of the cymbal. As shown more in FIGURE 7, latch 64 is pivotally mounted with respect to the standards 62 and 63 by means of a pin 65. An aperture 66 is formed in the latch 64, and is so dimensioned and located thereon to coact with the bosses 67 and 68 formed on standard 62. Thus, when the latches in the retaining position shown in FIGURES 5, 6 and 7, aperture 66-, will be in alignment with boss 67, they retain the latch as shown in the horizontal position. When it is desired to place the latch in the open position, so that a cymbal can be mounted or removed from the stands, the latch is manually rotated until the boss '68 as shown in FIGURE 6, aligns with aperture 66, and is retained thereby. Thus, it is apparent that where one is involved with heavy cymbals, that a device as shown in FIGURES 5, 6 and 7, can be very effectively used by merely manually adjusting the latch 64 from the horizontal position shown in FIGURES 5, 6 and 7, to a vertical position wherein the latch 64 will be in alignment with the standard 62, and will be retained in such position longitudinally by the coaction of boss 68 with aperture 66. Then the operator can apply both hands to the cymbal, removing it, and replace it with another cymbal, and then restore the latch to its retaining position as shown in FIGURES 5, 6- and 7.

In FIGURE 8, there is shown a modification of the form of the invention shown in FIGURES 5, 6 and 7, wherein a retaining device 70 is made integral with the post 11, as differentiated from FIGURE 5, wherein the retaining device 60 is threadedly secured to the post 11. All the other components of the modified form of FIG- URE 8 are entirely similar to that shown in FIGURE 5, the same reference numerals used in FIGURE 5 for the same parts, are used in FIGURE 8, and the operation is entirely the same.

It is now apparent that from the foregoing description and accompanying drawings, that a very effective and simple device is provided for retaining a cymbal on its stand in a manner which will facilitate both the removal and mounting of a cymbal on the said stand. All of the forms of the invention disclosed herein, do not require the removal of the retaining device and the accompanying time lost and possibility of losing the retaining member such as is possible with the presently widely used wing nut arrangement. Moreover, the invention includes specific construction for locking the retaining device in either the open or retaining position so that the user can apply both hands to the removal or mounting of the cymbal on the stand. It is to be further noted that the device as disclosed herein, is of aesthetic design, does not introduce any objectionable looking hardware, and can be produced without any substantial increase in cost as compared to the conventionally used retaining devices. It is believed that this uncomplicated improvement in this art will find wide favor and acceptance in this field, without increasing the expenses involved. I

Although specific forms of the device have been disclosed, it is to be understood that the invention disclosed herein should be considered in its broadest aspect, and that any departures from the specific forms disclosed herein, should not be regarded as departing from the scope of the invention.
