SHOE-REST.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 388,685, dtedAugust 28, 1888.

Application tiled June 27, 188B. Serial No. 278,346. (No mwdel.)

`county of New London and State of Connecticut, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shoe Supports for Display- Frames, which improvements are fully set forth and described in the following specification, reference being had to the accompanying two sheets of drawings.

Shoe-supports of this class have been commonly constructed heretofore of sheet-metal plates conforming in outline with the sole of a shoe or of wire bent to substantially the same outline. In said wire supports spring-clamps adapted to embrace the shoe sole or shank have also been provided; but in all such devices, so far as we are acquainted with them, the shoe, if inclined or tipped out of a hori- 'zontal position, is likely to fall from its support or become more or less displaced. Such cited by providing` an adjustable clamp-support which may clasp the shoe-sole firmly enough to retain and exhibit it in any position, the connecting parts of said support being such that said clamp may be swiveled in any direction to expose different sides or portions of the shoe.

XVe have illustrated our said device and some of the ways in which it may be utilized in the annexed drawings, in whichT Figure l is an elevation of an individual or single stand shoe-support embodying our iu vention, and Fig. 2 shows two of our shoeclamps applied to a bracket-arm. Fig. 3 is an enlarged perspective view of' the clamp proper and its connected parts; and Fig. 4, a detached side View of the stud h and the nut c', which in practice secure the clamp-plates to said stud. Figs. 5 and 6 show vertical sections of our said clamp and its connected parts and illustrate means slightly different for controlling the swiveling of the same, all being described in detail hereinafter. Fig. 7 is a top view (reduced in size) of our clamp-plates,' illustrating the provision made for automatic adjustment to irregular or non-parallel edges of a shoe-sole. Fig. 8 is a perspective view of the binding-nut c c.

Referring to said drawings, the letters a a indicate clamp-plates,made, preferably, of sheet metal, each formed with its outer end turned upward and slightly inward, as shown.v The particular shape of the elampingjaws thus provided may be varied as circumstances or judgment may direct without departing from the spirit of our invention. The bases a2a3of the clamp-plates overlap each other and are provided with coincident slots b, thus a1low ing the plates in practice to be adjusted to or from each other to clasp shoesoles of greater or less width. with a rib portion, c, and a fiauged head, c', the ribV being about the saine height as the united thickness of the bases c a3. Said rib c is intentionally made narrower than slots b, so that the jaws of the clamp-plates may have considerable lateral motion, as indicated in Fig. 7, thus allowing said jaws to adjust themselves to the shape of the shoe-sole to be supported.

rIhe letter dindicates a bar, usually of metal tube,whose office is to support theshoeclamp. (See Fig. 2.) On this bar dis aeollar, e, which is secured to said bar in any desired position by a thumbscrew, f. The upper side of collar e is formed with a boss, e', drilled to receive a stud, h, whose upper end is milled back to a shoulder and threaded to engage the nut c c', above described.

In Fig. 6 the stud h is held rigidlyin itsseat in boss e by a thumb-Seremi, while in Fig. 5 I have shown a construction that renders the set-screw i unnecessary. In said Fig. 5 the lower end of stud h is formed with a swelled or conical head, h', that rests in a correspondingly-shaped recess leading from the opening in collar e into the hole in boss e. In assembling the several parts, stud 7L is passed upward through the tapped hole, which is to receive thumbscrew f before said thumb-screw. is inserted. The conical head of stud 7L is of Within slots b is a nut formedY IOO such length that it projects downward and rests on bar d,which is fitted loosely in collar e. When it is desired to rigidly secure the collar and stud, the thumb-screwf is turned home, which action forces bar d upward and crowds the tapered head of said stud tightly into its seat, effectually locking said parts together. Stud l1, is formed in Fig. 6 with an integral milled flange, k, by which it may be grasped when it is desired to unscrew it from nut c c. ln Fig. 5 a similar tlange is provided by forcing a milled collar, 7c', on said stud after it is passed upward through boss e.

A shoesupport substantially as above set forth is'rof pleasing design, may be cheaply produced, and is so small that a fraction only of the shoe is hidden from view. Figs. 3, 5, and 6 show said support at about two-thirds its practical size.

The form of clamping-jaws illustrated in Fig. Gis such that the spring of said jaws may be utilized in the act of removing a shoe-sole from their grasp. Said jaws, being formed of springbrass or analogous material, will yield or spring apart a distance sufficient to enable the operator to remove the shoe without being compelled to unserew the binding-nut c'.

vide adjustment relative to each other and upturned ends to clasp the shoe, as set forth, in combination with a stand having a threaded end extending through said slots, a binding'nut on said threaded end for interlocking said plates and stud, and a socketed stand for supporting the described shoe-support, all substantially as and for the purpose specified.

2. A shoesupport formed of two metallic plates having upturned ends to clasp a shoesole and coincident slots,whereby adjustment relative to each other may be attained, a threaded supporting-stud projecting through said slots, and a binding-nut on said threaded stud having one side formed as a rib somewhat less in width than said slots, substantially as and for the purpose specified.

3. In combination with bar d, a collar fitted adjustably on said bar, a clamping-screwd, a stud with milled head seated in said collar, a shoe-support formed of two overlapping slotted plates with upturned ends, as set forth, and a nut on said stud for clamping together the plates of said shoe-support, all substantially as and for the purpose specified.
