LADDER WITH CLAMP EQUIPPED WALL ENGAGING BRACKET BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION This invention comprises an improvement over the ladder and support bracket therefor disclosed in my prior U.S. Pat. No. 3,603,431.
Various types of ladder support brackets have been heretofore designed for engaging a supportive structure against which the upper end of the ladder is to be leaned and maintaining the upper end of the ladder in spaced relation relative to the supportive structure. In addition, some of these ladder support brackets have included clamp means at the free ends thereof for clampingly engaging the associated supportive structure. However, these clamp equipped ladder support brackets have either not been constructed so as to adapt readily to various configurations of supportive structures to be clamped thereby or they have required manual actuation and release from the upper end of the associated bracket and therefore preclude the possibility of an associated ladder being clampingly engaged with a supportive structure prior to a person climbing the ladder.
Examples of previously patented ladder support brackets may be found in U.S. Pat. Nos. 1,658,191, 2,088,895, 2,419,065, 3,486,580 and 3,603,431.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION The ladder support bracket of the instant invention includes a support arm structure pivotally supported from the associated ladder and equipped with a stationary jaw as well as a pivoted jaw on the free end of the support arm structure. The pivoted jaw-is connected between the support bracket and the support arm structure for automatic swinging of the pivoted jaw toward and away from the stationary jaw in response to upward and downward movement of the free end of the support arm structure toward its limit positions of oscillation. The support arm structure being spring biased to swing the free end thereof in a downward direction.
The main object of this invention is to provide a ladder support bracket for use on single section ladders as well extension ladders and which will be capable of clampingly engaging a supportive structure for the ladder and supporting the upper end of the associated ladder in spaced relation relative to the supportive structure,
Another object of this invention, in accordance with the immediately preceding object, is to provide a ladder support bracket which may be automatically clampingly engaged with a supportive structure as the associated ladder is erected and prior to a person climbing the associated ladder.
Still another object of this invention is to provide a support bracket for a ladder constructed in a manner whereby it may be readily removably attached to substantially all types of laddcrs.
A final object of this invention to be specifically enumerated herein is to provide a support bracket for a ladder in accordance with the preceding objects and which will conform to conventional forms of manufacture, be of simple construction and easy to use so as to provide a device that will be economically feasible, long lasting and relatively trouble free in operation.
These together with other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, references being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION Referring now more specifically to the drawings and to FIGS. 1 through 5 in particular, the numeral 10 generally designates a conventional form of extension ladder including an upper ladder section 12. The upper section 12 includes a pair of opposite side rails 16 and 18 interconnected by means of a plurality of vertically spaced rungs 20 secured therebetween and the support arm structure of the instant invention is generally referred to by the reference numeral 22 and is illustrated in FIGS. 1-3 as including a pair of support arm assemblies generally referred to by the reference numerals 24 mounted on the upper ends of the side rails 16 and 18 of the upper section 12. The support arm assemblies are illustrated as being utilized to support the upper end of the ladder 10 in horizontally spaced relation relative to a horizontal support structure 26. Each of the support arm assemblies 24 includes a mounting bracket referred to in general by the reference numeral 32. Further, each mounting bracket 32 has the base end of an inverted channel-shaped support arm 50 pivotally supported therefrom. The mounting bracket 32 and support arm 50 are substantially identical to the corresponding components identified by identical reference numerals disclosed in my above-mentioned prior U.S. Pat. No. 3,603,431. Further, the support arms 50 are spring biased in a clockwise direction as viewed in FIG. 1 in the same manner as that disclosed in my prior U.S.
patent and each mounting bracket includes a pivotally supported latching lever 72 cooperable with notches 68 formed in the cover discs 66 for limiting clockwise swinging of the support arms 50 in the same manner as the identically numbered components in my prior patent.
Each of the support arms 50 includes an outer end upwardly angulated stationary jaw 28 including longitudinally spaced downwardly projecting surface penetrating elements 30 and a mounting bracket 34 is mounted on the end portion of each support 50 imme diately inwardly of the stationary jaw 28 thereof. Each mounting bracket 34 comprises a pair of spaced opposition side plates 36 clampingly engagingthe corresponding support arm 50 therebetween by means of a fastener 38 secured through the plates 36. The plates 36 include lower end portions which project. downwardly below each support arm 50 and pivotally support an L-shaped jaw 40 therebetween by means of a pivot fastener 42. Each jaw 40 includes a pair of angulated legs 44 and 46 and the pivot fastener 42 for each jaw 40 is secured through the leg 44 thereof centrally intermediate its opposite ends.
Each of the support arms 50 is pivotally supported from the corresponding mounting bracket 32 by means of a pivot fastener 58 also finding its equivalent in my prior patent designated by the same reference numeral and each of the pivot fasteners of the instant invention includes an anchor arm 60 supported therefrom and extending generally radially outwardly from the pivot fastener. i
Each support arm assembly 24 further includes an elongated channel-shaped connecting member 62 pivotally secured at one end to the free end of the corresponding leg 44 and at the other end to the free end of the corresponding anchor arm 60.
In operation, with the support arms 50 locked against further downward swinging movement of the free ends thereof past the positions illustrated in FIG. 1 by means of the pivoted levers 62, the ladder is positioned in an upstanding position leaning slightly toward thesupport structure or member 26. Then, with the stationary jaw 28 engaged with the upper surface 27 of the support member 26, the upper section of the extension lad der is lowered slightly relative to the support 26. With each support arm 50 thus positioned as illustrated in FIG. 2, the counter-clockwise displacement of the support arms 50 from the positions thereof illustrated in FIG. 1 to the positions thereof illustrated in FIG. 2 causes the connecting members 62 to swing thejaws 40 from the open positions thereof illustrated in FIG. 1 to the closed positions thereof illustrated in FIG. 2 with the support member 26 clamped between the stationary jaws 28 and the free ends of the legs 26 of the pivoted jaws 40. At this point, the ladder 10 is securely clamped to the support structure 26 and may he climbed without fear of the ladder slipping relative to the support structure 26.
With reference now more specifically to FIGS. 6 I
through 9 of the drawings, there may be seen a modified form of support arm structure referred to in general by the reference numeral 122 and which is substantially identical, for the most part, to the support arm structure 22.
The support arm structure 122 differs from the support arm structure 22 in that the mounting brackets 134 corresponding to mounting brackets 34 are secured to the outer terminal ends of the support arms 150 by means of fasteners 138 secured through the support arms 150. The free end of the long leg 146 of a lever corresponding to lever 40 is provided with a hook 147 and the support arm structure 122 does not include a jaw corresponding to the jaw 28. Rather, the support arm 150 is provided with a plurality of longitu+ dinally spaced transverse bores, or apertures 151 and a connecting member 162 corresponding to the connecting member includes similar longitudinally spaced transverse bores or apertures 163. The other jaw of each support arm structure 122 is referred to in general by the reference numeral 165 and includes a pair of opposite side jaw plates 167 pivotally secured to the corresponding support arm 150 by means ofa pivot fas tener 169 secured through a selected bore 151. The plates 167 project above the support arms 150 and each pair of plates, 167 is interconnected by means of a spacing sleeve 171 and a through fastener 173 above the support arm 150. Further, the upper ends of the plates 167 are provided with hooked terminal ends 175.
The lower ends of each pair of plates 167 extend downwardly along opposite sides of the corresponding connecting member 162 and are loosely pivotally and slidably secured to the latter by means of a fastener 177 secured through vertical slots 179 in the plates 167 and a selected bore 163.
From a comparison of FIGS. 1 and 2 and FIGS. 6 and 7, it may be seen that the operation of the support structure 122 is substantially identical to the operation of the support arm structure 22, except that the jaws 140 and 165 are better adapted to clampingly engage the lower horizontal flange of a horizontal I-beam referred to in general by the reference numeral 181. Further, it may be readily appreciated that the jaws 165 may be adjustably positioned longitudinally of the support arms 150 and connecting members 162 in order to vary the maximum and minimum spacing between each pair of jaws 140 and 165.
The foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further,-since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention.
