JOHN H. FOWLER, OF MOUNT UNION, PENNSYLVANIA.

PICTURE-HANGER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 769,794, dated September 13, 1904.

Application filed February 16, 1904:. Serial No. 193,897. kNo model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Beit known that I, JOHN H. FOWLER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Mount Union, county of Huntingdon, and State of Pennsylvania, have invented acertain new and useful Improvement in Picture-Hangers, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to a new and useful improvement in picture-hangers, and has for its object to provide a picture-hanger which may be attached to the wall at any point without necessarily marring the surface of the wall or wall-paper upon the same and which will securely hold the picture against falling.

With these ends in View this invention consists in the details of construction and combination of elements hereinafter set forth and then specifically designated by the claims.

In order that those skilled in the art to which this invention appertains may understand how to make and use the same, the construction and operation will now be described in detail, referring to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which- Figures 1 and 2 are a perspective view and side elevation, respectively, of one form of my invention. Figs. 3 and 4:, 5 and 6, 7 and 8, 9 and 10, and 11 and 12 are views of other forms of my invention.

All of the embodiments of my invention comprise a pointed stud which is driven into the Wall on an incline downward, and hinged to this pointed stud is a movable section, the lower end of which is provided with one or more pointed studs adapted to be driven into the wall horizontally, and this movable section is provided with a knob or hook extending outward, upon which the picture is adapted to behung.

Referring to Figs. 1 and 2, A is a plate from which the inclined pointed stud B is punched out to the rearward, and this pointed stud is adapted to be driven into the wall on the incline. Hinged at the point C to the upper end of the plate A is the movable section or plate D, the lower end of which is provided with one or more pointed studs E, which are bent rearward from the plate at right angles, and these studs are adapted to pass through the opening or openings F and be driven into the Wall horizontally. G is a knob extending outward from the forward face of the plate D, upon which the picture is adapted to be hung. It will thus be seen that the weight of the picture upon the knob G will tend to hold the studs E into the wall and the hanger engaging the wall at two points, one point by means of an inclined stud and at the other point by means of a horizontal stud or studs, makes a very secure fastening.

In Figs. 3 and 4: the plate D is hinged di rectly to the forward end of the stud B, and thereby the plate A is done away with, making a simple and less expensive construction.

In Figs. 5 and 6 the movable portion D is bent so as to form a hook D, and the end of the portion D then passes through a hole formed through itself and terminates in the stud E, which is driven in the wall horizontally.

Figs. 7 and 8 illustrate the same forms as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, except that instead of two studs E only one stud is used, and in this case an ornamental knob H is shown, the head of which may be made removable, if desired.

In Figs. 9 and 10 I have shown a form similar to the construction of the form shown in in Figs. 3 and 1, except that the stud E and knob G are made of one piece and separate from the plate D. This stud E is driven through a hole through the lower end of the plate and protrudes to the rearward. Thus by hammering upon the knob G the stud E may be driven into extremely-hard walls.

In Figs. 11 and 12 the portionD is made of wire, the two ends being twisted together, one end being sharpened to form the stud E and the other end extending outward forward to form the knob G. This form is also adapted for extremely-hard walls. 7

I do not wish to be limited simply to the forms here shown, as I have only shown these several forms to give a slight idea of how the invention could be varied without departing from the spirit thereof, and I do not wish to be limited to the construction here shown, as other modifications could be made without I departing from the spirit of the invention.

Having thus fully described my invention, What I claim is V 1. In a picture-hanger, a pointed stud adapted to be driven in the wall upon an incline downward, a movable section hinged at its upper end to the stud, one or more studs secured to the lower end of the movable section and adapted to be driven into the wall horizontally, and a picture-retaining means extending forward from the movable section, as and for the purpose specified.

2. In a picture-hanger, a stud adapted to be driven into the wall on an incline downward, a movable section hinged at its upper end to said stud, a pointed stud extending rearward from the lower end of said movable section and formed integral therewith, said lower stud adapted to be driven into the wall horizontally, and a picture-retaining means extending forward from the movable section, as and for'the purpose specified.

3. In a picture-hanger, a plate adapted to lie flat against the wall, a stud protruding rearward from said plate and adaptedto be driven into the wall on an incline downward, a movable section hinged at its upper end to said plate, one or more studs extending rearward from the lower end of said movable section, the plate provided with openings through which said stud or studs may pass, said stud or studs adapted to be driven into the wall horizontally, and a knob extending forward from said movablesection, as specified.

4:. In a picture-hanger, a plate, a stud on an end thereof adapted to be driven in the wall, a movable section hinged to the opposite end of the plate, a stud on an end of the movable section adapted to engage the wall, .and a picture-retaining means carried by'the movable section.

5. The combination of a stud adapted to be secured in a wall or other support, and a section connected in a hinged manner with the stud, and provided with a stud arranged to be embedded in the wall or other support.

6. In a 1:)icturehanger, the combination of a stud adapted to be secured in a wall or other support, and a section connected in a hinged manner with the stud; the said hinged section being provided with a stud arranged to be embedded in the wall or other support,

and being also provided with picture-holding means.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto affixed my signature in the presence of two sub-
