I DISPLAY-RACK.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented March 12, 1907.
Application filed July 10,1906. Serial No. 325,470.
To all 1071/0711 it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN EDWARD TAY- LOR, a citizen of the United States, and aresident of Jackson, in the county of Hinds and State of Mississippi, have invented a new and Improved Display-Rack, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to display-racks.
The object of the invention is to produce a device of this class which is adapted to support a plurality of mattresses and which will enable the same to be drawn out into a convenient position for inspection.
The invention consists in the construction and combination of parts to be more fully described hereinafter and particularly set forth in the claim.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is a perspective showing the display-rack as used in practice and. supporting a plurality of mattresses. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section taken through the display-rack and illustrating the manner in which the mattresses may be drawn out for inspection or examination. In this view the standards are represented as broken away. Fig. 3 is a vertical section taken longitudinally of the hangers which support the mattresses and is substantially a section on the line 3 3 of Fig. 4, certain parts being broken away. This view is upon an enlarged scale and Fig. 4 is a detail view showing a portion of the upper part of the display-rack and showing the hangers which support the mattresses in end elevation. This view is a section taken substantially on the line 4 4 of Fig. 3.
Referring more particularly to the parts, 1 1 represent stanchions or uprights, which support a horizontal frame 2 at the upper extremities thereof. This frame 2 is of sub stantially rectangular form and is preferably constructed of tubular members 3 and 4, which may be formed, for convenience, of gaspipe. The members 3 are preferably of greater length than the members 4 and extend longitudinally of the frame, and the entire frame is braced by a longitudinal intermediate member 5 and a transverse intermediate member 6. As indicated in Fig. 2, the stanchions 1 are arranged so that the frame 2 presents an overhanging extension 7. In
the longitudinal members 8 of the frame I support a plurality of supporting bars or rails 8. These rails 8 are formed of round iron and have threaded extremities which are received in the outermost of the bars 3, being secured thereto by suitable nuts 9, as indicated in Figs. 2 and 3. Each of these rails 8 supports a hanger 10, and these hangers comprise rollers 11, which run on the upper sides of the rails, as shown. The said rollers 11 are provided with downwardly-extending shackles 12, which are engaged by hooks 1.3, and each of these hooks supports at its lower end a pair of arms 14. The lower extremities of these arms have attached thereto T- bars 15, which extend longitudinally of the rails, as shown. The T-bars 15, in connection with the arms 14, constitute clamps for holding up mattresses 16. They operate in the manner illustrated in Fig. 4, each pair of arms 14 being provided with a slide ring or collar 17. This collar is normally supported on the T-bars, as illustrated at the right in Fig. 4, but affords means for forcing the bars 15 against the opposite sides of the upper edge of the mattress, as indicated at the left in Fig. 4. Inthis connection it should be understood that the T-bars or clamping-bars 15 are applied on opposite sides of the mattress, so that the arms 14 diverge downwardly. In this way when the ring or collar 17 is forced downwardly it forces the T-bars toward each other in such a way as to clamp the mattress in the manner shown.
In Fig. 1 the-display-rack is represented supporting a plurality of mattresses. As illustrated, the hangers 10 normally support the mattresses from the portion of the frame 2 disposed between the stanchions 1. .Any one of the mattresses may be drawn out upon the overhanging portion 7 of the frame, as indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 2, so as to erilable the mattress to be inspected on both si es.
It will be observed from inspection of Fig. 2 that one of the rollers 11, in connection with each hanger, is supported on the overhanging or forward extension 7, while the other roller runs on the main portion of the frame. In this way no obstruction is offered in drawing the hanger forwardly from the rear, as indicated in the dotted lines, it being understood that the rearmost hanger can ad vance toward the position of the intermediate bar 5.
Having thus described my invention, I may advance to said bar, and clamping memclaim as new and desire to secure by Letters I bers carried by said hangers. Patent I In testimony whereof I have signed my In a display-rack, in combination, a frame name to this specification in the presence of 5 presenting a plurality of substantialy l11ori two subscribing witnesses.
