BROQM RACK.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 731,642, dated June 23, 1903.
Application filed June 27 1902. Serial No. 113.438. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it. known that I, ROBERTv EUGENE WILDER, a citizen of the United States, residing Sumter, in the county of Sumter'and Stateof South Carolina, have invented a new and useful Broom-Rack, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to devices employed for the purpose of supporting and displaying brooms and similar articles in a convenient position for exhibition in stores, and has for Its ob ect the production of a simple, easilyconstructed, and convenient display stand or rack, wherein the brooms and other articles are supported independently, so that each individual article is independently removable and in a position to be displayed in its entirety.
Another object of the invention is the construction of a device wherein brooms or other be independently displayed.
The invention consists in certain novel fea: tures of construction, as hereinafter shown and described, and specified in the claims.
In the drawings illustrative of the invention, Figure 1 is a perspective view of the de- .vice with a numb-erof' brooms supported.
therein. Fig. 2 is a plan view in detail of a portion of the broom-supporting head; illustrating the manner of forming and securing the holding-loops. Fig. 3 represents an enlarged sectional view in detail through one end oi the rack, showing the disposition of the end staples therein.
I this device is comprised a head member supporting'a series of reversely-disposed spaced loops, alternately extended from its opposite edges and adapted to support the handles of the brooms, abase member having a longitudinal-recess for the reception of'the ends of the broom-handles connected to the head member by, vertical standards.
In this invention is furthereomprised spev cially-formed loops adapted to support broomindependent recept c handles or other similar-articles of smaller size than ordinary ln obm handles and with les for the ends of the handles of tl'lesefsrhaller articles.
Thedevice' may 'bemade of any desired size and adapted to support any required number of the brooms or other articles and will generall y be formed of wood, with the supportingloops of wire of sniiicient strength ,to support the brooms or other articles, although the device may be formed entirely of metal, or partially of wood and partially of metal, as may be preferred.
In the drawings illustrative of the invention the top of the rack is shown formed of two plates 10 11 of the same size and preferably with rounded ends and secured together rigidly, as by screws 12. Secured between these two plates 10 11 is a. wire bent into spaced alternating loops 13 14, the loops 13 extending from one side or edge of the plates 10 11 and the loops 14 extending from the other edge of the plates, the loops 13 coming opposite the spaces between the'loops 14 and the loops 14 coming opposite the spaces betweentheloops 13, as indicated. The loops 131st, as before stated, will be formed of one single piece of wire and will be firmly clamped between the plates 10 11, the material of which the plates are formed being preferably of soft wood, so that when clamped together the wire will be partially embedded in the wood, and thereby prevented from bein g displaced.
This makes a very simple, complete, and eflicient support for the loops, which WillllOld them with sufficient grip to withstand the pressures or strains to which they will-be subjected. At their ends the plates-10 11 are preferably rounded, as shown, and provided with spaced loops 15, preferably of smaller size than theloops 13 14. These smaller loops are shown formed like staples, with one leg of each longer than the otherand bent at right angles to the staple and adapted to enter a cavity in the plate 11, so that when the plates are clamped together the loops 15 will be firmly held and their withdrawal prevented. Neartheir ends the plates. 10 ll fwill be providedwith vertical supporting-standards'lG 17 and further supported bya longito the interior of the standards 11,6 17 At their lower ends the standards 16117 are provided, respectively, withtran'sverse bars 19 20, which form laterally-extended snpportsto tudinal vertical web 18, conn ected centrally to the under side of the plate 11 andbyits' ends dicated at and the headsat 26.
to increase the stability of the device.
, Connected to the tops of the transverse bars 19-20 between the standards 16 17 is a baseplate 21, as shown. The standards 16 17 are preferably wider than the plates 10 11, and the base-plate 21 will preferably be of the same width as the lower part of the standards, as shown. ,Longitudinally disposed centrally upon the upper side ofthe plate'21 are spaced ribs2223, afiording a lateral support to the ends of the broom-handles, which are inserted from1 above through the loops 13 14, as indicate Attached to the standards 16 17 intermediately of their lengths are transverse sockets 24, adapted to receive the ends of the smaller brooms or other articles, which are inserted downward through the smaller loops 15.
. When employed to support ordinary brooms, the distan'cejbetween the plates 10. 11 and the base-plate 21 will be just'suflicient to receive a broom-handle and permit the heads of the brooms to extendpverthe upper plate 10 and with the end of the handle resting in the cavity between the ribs 22 23, as indicated in Fig. 1, wherein a number of the brooms are shown positioned in the rack, the handles being in 'VVhen employed-for the display of brooms also, the sockets 24willbedisposed upon the standards 16 17 at the requisite height to receive the ends of the handles-of the ordinary toy or hearth brooms, which are usually sold in connection with the ordinary domestic brooms. By this means "both sizes, of brooms, which are usually handled together, may be displayed I upon one rack, which is a very convenient arrangement and adds materially to the utility of the-device. By arranging the loops on'one side' opposite the spaces on theother side the broom-heads, when-placed in position transversel'y of the rack,iwill interlap above the 1 plate 10, so thateach broom is supported ontirely -independentlyof allthe others and every side of every broom open to inspection, and each individual broom may be inserted into the rack or removed therefrom without interference with any other broom. This is a Very great advantage, as the brooms may be in- "spewed and inserted and removed-without interferencewith the other brooms orrinjury thereto by friction or otherwise.
'The device may be very easily adapted to the display of othenarticles than brooms, such as rakes, hoes, pitchforks, long-handled spades, long-handled brushes, fishpoles, crabbing-nets, and other articles of a similar form.
It is obvious that the device is adapted by slight modifications as to the sizes of the loops .and the distance between the plates 10 11 and the base 21 to support all the different kinds of articles having long symmetrical handles and may be formed withlas many of the loops as required and the loops corresponding to the articles to he supported.
' If required, the loops 13 lt'may-be made in:
- holding means extending from the-opposite renew diflferent sizes to providefor supporting different kinds of articles in the same rack By this device the goods are displayed in a very conspicuousand at the same'time neat and. tasteful manner and attractively presented to the purchaser,
The rack maybe ornamented in any desired manner and the parts formed in any fanciful ornamental style desired,
, The plates 10 11 may be formedof any size transversely, but generally they will be formed in about the proportion indicated.
The device may be modified in minor particulars without departingfrom the principle of the invention or sacrificing any of its advantages.
.Having thus described my invention, what I claim is- 1. A broom-rack comprising superimposed plates, spaced broom-holdingloops ext-ending alternately fromv the opposite edges of said plates, spaced standards supporting said plates near their ends, spaced holding-loops extending from the portions of said plates beyond the standards, and sockets carried by said standards intermediately of their lengths and adapted to support the ends of the handles of the brooms held by said end loops, substantially as described.
2. A broom-rack comprising superimposed plates, U- shaped broom-holding loops spaced apart and supported by their legs between said plates and having their looped ends extended beyond thev edges thereof, one leg of each loop being longer than the other and arranged atright angles to the loop to enga e. a cavity in one of said plates, standards Sn porting said plates, and-sockets carried by said standards and adapted to support the ends of the converging handles of the brooms held by said loops.
3. A broom-rack comprising superimposed plates having rounded ends, spaced broomholding loops supported between said plates and extending.-radially from said rounded ends, standards supporting said plates, and sockets carried by said standards intermediately of their lengths and adapted .to support the converging ends ofthe handles of the brooms held by said loops, substantially as described.
4. A rack comprising superimposed plates,
no edges of said plates for engaging an article to be supported, spaced holding-loops sup-- ported between said plates and extending radially from the ends thereof, and means disposed below said spaced loops for supporting the ends of the'handles of the articles held by said loops..
Iii-testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto aifixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
