SHOW-RAG K.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Arefiere; Patent No.3eas42, daten/.raya icas.
Application tiled March 19, 1886. Serial No. 267,643. (No model.) Y
adjustable thereon and provided with sockets,
and a series of rods' or bars which constitute the supports for the goods to be displayed,
lwhich are inserted in and held horizontally.
by said sockets, the latter being provided with upwardly-projecting lugs or rests formed to support additional horizontal bars, which may be laid on saidV rests and extend from one standard to the next, so that when two of said standards are attached to a ceiling within a few feet of each other one or more. long bars may be supported by rests on both standards, and each standard may support independently one or more shorter bars or arms, which may be Varranged at different angles, as the taste or fancy of the owner may dictate.
Of the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, Figure l represents a side elevation of a standard and a series of, slides and independent rods embodying my invention. Fig. 2 represents a side elevation of two standards, the sockets of both of which support bars extending across the intervening space. Fig. 3 represents a section on line m ai, Fig. 2. Fig. 4 represents a similar section of a modification. Fig. 5 represents a perspective view of a portion of a standard, a'slide thereon, a portion of a rod or bar inserted in the horizontal sockets of said slide, and a swinging arm inserted in a vertical socket. Fig. 6 represents an elevation of Va part of a standard with a slide having the rests arranged at right angles with the sockets. A'
The same letters of reference indicateA the same parts in all the figures. l
In the drawings, a represents a standard, which is preferably a tube of metal secured at its upper end to aholder, b, which is attached by any suitable means to an enlarged bearingplate, c, adapted to be attached` to aV ceiling. The opposite end of the standard is preferably provided with an ornamental head, d. A
The standard al may be screwed into. the holder b, as shown in Fig. 3, or vmay receive a rod, f, which is attached to and extends downwardly from the holder, the standard being in this case attached to the rod f by set-screws g g. The Yconstruction last described permits the vertical adjustment of the standard onthe UNITED STATES PAFENT OFFICi-.-
rod, the screws g g enabling the standard to be f secured at any point to which it may be adjusted.
'e e e represent a series of sleeves or slides adapted to be moved on the standard and provided with set-screws h, whereby they may be securgdto the standard at any desired height. On each slide are formed two sockets, i i, which are offset from the slide, and are arranged horizontally in line witheach other. On the upper side of each socket are two upwardly-l projectinglugs, jj, the inner sides of `which form a concave rest, each of which may support one end of a bar,lc, whose other end is supported by a similar rest on another standard. Short rods or bars m may be inserted in thesockets i, as shown in Figs. 1 and 5, the ends of each bar being about equidistant from the standard. The slides e may be turned at different angles, so that thel bars m will project in dierent directions, as shown in Fig. l.
Itwill be seen that by arranging two standards in suitable proximity to leach other, as shown in Fig. 2, a series of long bars, k, may
be supported by the rests of the two standards,
angles with the shorter bars, m, supported by said sockets. In this case there will be less in- IOO receive the bent ends of swinging arms q, formed to support hats, Ste., as shown in Fig. 5.
If desired, xtures for supporting boots and shoes may be attached to the bars m.
I claim- 1. The combination of the standard a, the series of slides which are adjustable on said standard and are provided with holding setscrews h, the sockets i on said slides adapted to receive rods or bars m, and the rests on said sockets, each adapted to support one end of a bar, lc, the other end of which is snpportedby a like rest on another standard, as set forth.
2. The combination of the standard, the series of slides which are adjustable on said standard and are provided with set-screws h, which bind them to the standard, the sockets i on CHARLES E. MCELROY. Witnesses:
