ATTORNEY GEORGE WASHINGTON SHINDLEBOWER AND PRICE SHINDLEBOWER, OF
PALFEN T OFFICE.
LOUISVILLE,
KENTUCKY, ASSIGNORS TO S. D. GRUSE, OF LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY.
DISPLAY-RACK FOR BUGS.
To all whom it may concem:
Be it known that we, GEORGE WASHING- TON SIIINDLEBOWER and PRICE SHINDLE- nownn, citizens of the United States, residing at Louisville, in the county of- J eflerson and State of Kentucky, have invented a new and useful Display-Rack for Rugs, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to racks for holding rugs, tapestries, draperies, oil cloths, and the like articles in normally spread condition suitable for display to prospective customers, and some of the objects of our improvement are, cheapness of first cost, economy of room, ease of assembling, ease of operation,
'security, and durability. These objects we attain my means of the device illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a plan view with the part above line A B in Fig. 2 cut away; Fig. 2, a side elevation showing the brackets in transverse section on line C D of Fig. 1; Fig. 8, a detail plan view showing the rack attached to the single wall; and, Fig. 4:, a front elevation of the upper part of the rack showing the suspending bars in transverse section.
Similar reference numerals refer to similar parts throughout the several views of the drawing.
This rack is designed to be seciired in a suitable display room of which 1 is the ceiling, 2 the floor, and 3 and 4. two of the walls.
t may be placed across one corner of the room, being attached to the ceiling and the floor and to walls 3 and 4, or it may be placed at any suitable point on a single wall 3 and the ceiling and the fioor corresponding, as shown in Fig. 3. A plate 5 is preferably secured to the ceiling atan angle of 45 degrees to walls 3 and at, if placed across a corner of the room, or at 45 degrees to one of the walls, as 3, if placed on the wall, as shown in Fig. 3.
A plate 6 is longitudinally grooved and provided with vertical holes 'entering the groove, thus adapting it to receive bolts 7 with square heads, the square heads of the bolts resting in the groove and being prevented from turning by the walls of the groove. After bolts 7 have been inserted in holes in plate 6 provided therefor, the plate is secured to plate 5. Thus the heads of bolts 7 are confined in the groove in plate 6.
At somedistance below plate 6 a bracket 8,

with bolt holes for bolts 7, corresponding in position with the holes in plate 6, is secured to the wall, or walls, as the case may be, in parallel relation with plate 6. Bolts 7 are let down through the holes in bracket 8, and
nuts 9 may be screwed up on them underneath the bracket so as to ti hten the bolts.
suspending bars 10, pre erably of wood,
are provided each with a hole at one end adapted to receive bolts 7, so that the bars 10 are pivotally mounted upon the bolts and adapted to swing in a horizontal lane.
On the floor 2, immediately under brack-' ets 6 andw7 and parallel therewith, is arranged a third bracket. consisting of a plate A strut 15 is provided for each of the bars 10 which is secured at 16 at its upper end to bar 10 near its outer end and then passes downward to the bracket on the floor. At its lower end strut 15 is provided with a metal strap 17 which is secured thereto and extends somewhat beyond its lower end and is bent into a horizontal plane, so as to bear evenly upon plate 13. The outer end of strap 17 is provided with a hole' by which it is pivotally mounted over bolt 14. Bolt 14 is provided with a nut and a lock nut to seeuro strap 17. By these means suspending bar 10 is kept in a horizontal plane and yet is adapted to swing around in that plane.
The rugs or other articles that are to be displayed are secured in any suitable manner by their upper edges to bars 10 and allowed to hang toward the floor. One may be suspended from each side of a bar 10. The prospective customer may thus sit in one position and the salesman may swing the 00 bars holding the articles so that all the articles on the entire rack may be displayed while the prospective customer is sitting in a single position.
It will be appreciated that by the construction here shown, the weight of the rugs or other articles is carried by the floor, there being no pull on the ceiling and very little,
preferably made of angle iron and pierced 55 d in groove 12, 75
'tion With a room, a floor-bracket, a Wallreceive the heads 0 stress on the wall. in as much as no osts or rods are used extending from the selling to the floor, the Wall space is economized.
Having thus described our invention, We claim A display rack, comprising 1n combinabracket, and a ceiling-bracket, said three brackets being parallel, said floor and ceil ing brackets being provided With rooves to projecting b0 ts, a plurality of bolts projecting u ward from said floor-bracket, a plurality 0 bolts projecting l7, L net to and through said Wall-bracket, a -plurality of suspending-bars pivoting on said downwardly projecting-bolts, struts attached to said'suspending-bars and having plates at the lower end thereof adapted to pivot on the bolts projecting from said floor-bracket. 20
