525.186 8/1894 Bowley 24811 19 R 5 Claims, 4 Drawing Figures ANTI-ROLLING SHIPPING SUPPORT FOR STEEL COILS This invention relates to load bracing devices and more particularly to anti'rolling shipping devices for steel coils and other rounded objects.

A main object of the invention is to provide a novel and improved anti-rolling shipping support device for steel coils and similar rounded objects, the device being very simple in construction, being easy to use, and being highly effective in preventing coils or other round objects from shifting in position during shipment thereof.

A further object of the invention is to provide an improved anti rolling shipping support device for steel coils and other rounded objects, the device being very inexpensive to fabricate, being sturdy in construction, being highly effective for receiving wooden bars employed for locking with respect to coils of strip steel, or the like to be supported against shipping, and eliminating the necessity of spiking the blocking bars to the associated truck bed, flat car, or the like.

Further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following description and claims, and from the accompanying drawings, wherein:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of an improved antirolling shipping support device constructed in accordance with the present invention.

FIG. 2 is an enlarged elevational view, partly broken away, of the shipping support device of FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is an end elevational view of a portion of a truck bed or platform on which a roll of strip steel is supported and illustrating the use of anti-rolling supporting devices according to the present invention.

FIG. 4 is a side elevational view of the structure shown in FIG. 3.

In shipping coils of steel strips, and similar rounded objects, it has been heretofore necessary to employ anti-rolling blocks, such s those shown at 11 in F168. 3 and 4 arranged parallel to each other and firmly secured by spikes or similar fastenings to a truck bed or the supporting surface of a vehicle employed for carrying the rolls of metal. Thus, as shown in FIG. 3, a roll of metal, shown at 13, as previously retained against rolling on a truck bed 12 by spiking blocks ll, 11 on opposite sides of the roll to the truck bed 12. A prime purpose of the present invention is to provide a means of eliminating the necessity of spiking the elongated square blocks 11 to the truck bed 12. In accordance with the present invention, a plurality of anti-rolling support devices such as shown at 14 are employed to provide retaining seals for the elongated square bocks ll employed on opposite sides of a rounded object, such as the roll of stripped steel 13, when the roll is being transported on a truck bed 12, or similar vehicle bed. Each support device 14 comprises a single strip of relatively stiff material, such as heavy gauge metai, shown at 15, formed on its opposite ends with integral upstanding abutments 22, said abutments comprising folds of right-triangular shape having upwardly and inwardly inclined hypotenuse portions 16 and vertical inside wall portions 17. The ends of the strip are further folded inwardly to define inner struts 18 which perpendicularly engage and are welded to the hypotenuse portions 16, as is clearly shown in FIG. 2.

The bottom end portions of the inner side walls 17 are likewise welded at 19 to the main body 15 to further rigidify the abutments 22. The elements 18 bisect the right angles at the inner corner portions of the abutments and the elements 18 provide brace means of great rigidity for the abutments.

In using the devides 14, two or more of said devices are arranged transversely in a position intended to receive the steel strip roll 13 to be transported, and a pair of square wooden blocking bars 11, ll are preferably disposed in the inside corners defined by the upstanding triangular abutments, namely, the corners defined between the walls 17 and the main body 15 of the members 14. The blocks ll, 11 are placed on opposite sides of the coil 13, with the bottom of the coil engaging the underlying, transversely extending strip portions 15 of the abutments 22.

The coil 13 may then be tied down by employing transverse flexible hold-down members 20, such as chains, or the like, and may be similarly secured against longitudinal movement by additional hold-down chains or flexible members 2! extending longitudinally through the interior of the coil 13, as shown in FIG. 4.

It will be readily apparent that by employing the members 14, it is not necessary to spike down the blocking bars ll, 11 and there is no need for securing the blocking bars in any way to the bed 12.

Thus, it will be seen that the devices 14 prevent the blocking strips ll from shifting or spreading when the coils 13 or other round objects are placed therebetween in the manner shown in FIG. 3. The blocks 11, l l are thus held in working position without the necessity of spiking or otherwise fastening them to the vehicle bed 12.

While a specific embodiment of an improved anti rolling shipping support device for steel coils and similar round objects has been disclosed in the foregoing description, it will be understood that various modifications within the spirit of the invention may occur to those skilled in the art. Therefore, it is intended that no limitations be placed on the invention except as defined by the scope of the appended claims.

What is claimed is:

1. An anti-rolling support for rounded objects comprising a strip of relatively stiff material integrally formed at its opposite ends with upstanding abutments, each abutment being substantially in the form of a closed geometrical figure, said figure being substan tially triangular in shape and having an integral strut extending from one corner thereof to the opposite side.

2. The anti-rolling support of claim 1 and wherein said strut is rigidly secured to said opposite side.

3. The anti-rolling support of claim 2 and wherein said strut is substantially perpendicular to said opposite side.

4. The anti-rolling support of claim 3 and wherein said figure is substantially in the form of a right triangle.

5. The anti-rolling support of claim 4 and wherein the strut substantially bisects the right angle of the right triangular figure.

Claims (5)

1. An anti-rolling support for rounded objects comprising a strip of relatively stiff material integrally formed at its opposite ends with upstanding abutments, each abutment being substantially in the form of a closed geometrical figure, said figure being substantially triangular in shape and having an integral strut extending from one corner thereof to the opposite side.
2. The anti-rolling support of claim 1 and wherein said strut is rigidly secured to said opposite side.
3. The anti-rolling support of claim 2 and wherein said strut is substantially perpendicular to said opposite side.
4. The anti-rolling support of claim 3 and wherein said figure is substantially in the form of a right triangle.
5. The anti-rolling support of claim 4 and wherein the strut substantially bisects the right angle of the right triangular figure.
