UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
SIMPSON GEORGE MACMILLAN, OF BROOKFIELD, CANADA.
CLOTHES-HORSE.
" SPECIFXGA'IION forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 694,766, dated March 4, 1902. Application filed March 2s, 1e01. Serial No. 52,816. (No model.)
To all whontit may concern:
Be it known that I, SIMrsoN GEORGE MAO- MILLAN, a subject of the King of Great Britain, residing at Brookfield, in the county of Colchester, in the Province of Nova Scotia and Dominion of Canada, have invented new and useful Improvements in Clothes-Horses, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in clothes-horses which are used chiefly to dry clothes on under cover in the kitchen or living i'oom of a dwelling-house; and the object of my invention is to provide a cheap and convenient clothes-horse which while remaining permanently suspended from the ceiling of a room or other fixture can be readily lowered and revolved, so as to be easily accessible for the purpose of placing damp clothes thereon and then readily elevated vertically and secured in a position overhead which offers no inconvenience to personspassing beneath and in which a-high temperature is found. I attain this object by the mechanism illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is an elevation of the entire machine'as it appears when in a position to receive clothes for drying, but having partsoi'v two of the jointed arms E E E E broken out to prevent confusion. Fig. 2 is aplan of the cap which is secured to the ceiling of a room or other support and from which the whole m achine is suspended. Fig. 3 is aplan of the entire machine when elevated to its normal position. Fig. 4 is an elevation of the same with one of the jointed arms removed. Fig. 5 is a side elevation of the suspension-post. Fig. 6 is an edge View of the'same. Fig. 7is an edge elevation of one of the harpoon-lock jaws. Fig. 8 is a side elevation of the same.
Fi 9 is a bottom view of the clothesrod hold e r Fig. 11 is cured to the ceiling of a room or other elevated fixture by screws passing through the holes a a.
B is the suspension-post, which is inserted in the cap A, the square part of the post, i), being pressed into the round hole z in the cap with sufiicient' force to prevent it turning and held in place'by the key g, which passes through the hole (2' of the suspension-post and rests in the slot at shownin the cap.
0 is the suspension-plate, which rests and revolves on the collar 0 of the suspensionpost 13 and from which the clothes-rod holder D is suspended by'the jointed arms E E E E, which are attached at one end to the lugs d d d d of the suspension-plate C and are attached at the other end to the lugs e e e e of the clothes-rod holder D; The lugs e e e e and the lugs d d d d are placed on opposite sides of the center line, but maybe on either side of it, so that when the jointed arms are attached the draft will be central.
F' F are the jaws of the harpoon-lock, by which the clothes-rod holderis held suspended, as shown in Fig. 4.
f is a round boss on each of the harpoonlock jaws, which are inserted in the holesg g of the suspension-post B and in which they are pivoted.
. k is astop formed on the post 13 to'check the movement of the harpoonlock.
G is the lock-plate, which is bolted to the suspension post B and which secures the harpoon-lock jaws in place.
it h are the barbs of the harpoon-lock jaws, which hold theclothes-rod holder in the position shown in Fig. 4.
0 o are the clothes-rods, which may any number or size desirable.
" H H are the checks by which the clothes-rod be of holder is held at the lowest required height clothes-rod, which are on the upper side of the rim of the clothes-rod holder for the purpose of guiding the outer end of the rods in placing them.
j is a gain near the inner end of the clothesrod 0, into which the projecting ring 'n on the plate I is pressed for the purpose of holding the rod in place.
'0 o are the solid connections between the rim of the clothes-rod holderand the central plate t of the same. 7
r is the socket-wrench,formed on the plate I, into which a rod may be placed for the purpose of elevating or lowering the clothes-rod holder and also for revolving the same, as may be desired, to engage or disengage the barbs of the harpoon-lock jaws.
m m m m are bolt-holes for the purpose of securing the clothes-rod holder and the socketwrench plate together, suflicientspace being between to allow the rod-holder to revolve when elevated Without interfering with the barbs of the harpoon-jaws. I
f is one of two bolts whichhold the plate I onto the clothes-rod holder D.
The clothes-rods, jointed arms, and cap are preferably made of wood and the remainder of the parts preferably of cast-iron; but I do not confine myself to these different-mentioned materials in manufacturing.
The operation of the machine is as follows: The different parts .hereinbefore described being assembled and put together as shown.
in Fig. 1, the cap is attached to the ceiling of a room or other fixture in the manner described. The clothes to be dried are then placed on the clothes-rods and elevated to the position shown in Fig. 4 with a short rod, one end of which is fitted to the socket-wrench r. The clothes-rod holder in its ascent will force the barbs of the harpoon-lock jaws t0- Ward each other until they pass through the round hole w in the central plate 25, when they immediately spring outward to their normal position, effectually holding the clothes-rod holder in the position shown in Fig. 4, the
socket-Wrench for the purpose of revolving the machine.
Having described and illustrated my invention, What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. A clothes-horse of the class above described adapted to revolve horizontally and having a rod-holder and rods for clothes vertically adjustable, checks, and anautomatic lock or catch to arrest the vertical movements, jointed arms to guide the vertical motions and to carry the clothes-rod holder and rods, and a'wrench formed on the rod-holder; substantially as set forth.
2. In a clothes-horse of the class hereinbefore described the'combination of the suspension-post B provided with the stop K and the holes 9 g, the harpoon jaws F-F provided with the bosses ff, the spring a, the lock-plate G, and a clothes-holding device engaging said jaws; substantially as shown and for the pur- SIMPSON GEORGE MACMILLAN.
