STRAINER HOLDER.

APPLICATION FILED SBPT.6,1910.

984,225, Patented Feb. 14, 1911.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

JOHN H. KNAPP, OF PASADENA, CALIFORNIA.

STRAINER-HOLDER.

Application filed September E, 1910.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Feb. 14, 1911.

Serial No. 580,738.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Jenn H. KNArr, a citizen of the United States, residing at Pasadena, county of Los Angeles, and State of California, have invented a new and useful Straincrdlolder, of which the following is a specification.

The object of the invention is to provide a device which may be attached to the back of a chair or other piece of furniture without tools or which may be easily screwed to the wall, the device being adapted to support a straining cloth and contents which are being strained, in a convenient position.

Referring to the drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective view of a chair with the straining cloth holder attached thereto, the straining cloth and contents with receiving bowl being arranged as in use. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional View taken longitudinally through the device and showing a portion only of the straining cloth. Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the supporting arm with the upper part of the straining cloth and the bracket partly in section. Fig. 4t is a plan view of the supporting arm, and bracket. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the bracket. Fig. 6 is a side elevation of a modified form of bracket adapted to be secured to the wall. This view also shows the manner of tipping the upper rim of the straining cloth into a vertical position to remove the same without pulling the straining cloth and contents up through the hoop. Fig. 7 is a perspective view of another form of bracketadapted for use on chairs having a round upper bar, the adjacent part of the chair being shown in the dotted lines.

1 designates the supporting arm, the outer end of which is formed with a hoop 2 stiffened by a bead 3 on its upper edge. The supporting arm 1 is also stiffened by a web t on each side. A radial notch 5 is formed in the supporting arm 1 and extends through the hoop 2, the purpose of which is to enable the straining cloth to be re moved from the hoop without drawing the straining cloth and contents through the hoop.

6 designates the straining cloth which is formed as a bag with a stiffening wire 7 at its upper edge, the wire 7 having substantially the same diameter as the hoop 2 so that it may be rested upon the upper edge of the hoop 2 and retain thereon and there by support the weight of the bag when shallower.

filled with the material being strained. The hoop 7 is thus of a greater diameter than the inner diameter of the hoop 2 and would ordinarily necessitate the straining bag and contents being pulled upwardly through the hoop when they were to be removed were it not for the provision of the notch 5 by means of which their removal is more easily accoi'nplished by tipping the upper ring of the bag into a vertical position as indicated in Fig. 6, and the notch 5 will then permit the hoop to pass downwardly therethrough. This also enables the bag to be attached by passing the ring upwardly through the hoop and notch.

The inner end of the supporting arm 1 is formed with a head 8 which is formed with two notches 9 and 10. notch 9 being deeper than notch 10. The head 8 is also formed with a hole 11 which reduces the weight. Lugs a and l) are formed on each side of the head 8 and either lug is adapted to rest against the edge of the bracket and aid in holding the supporting arm in horizontal position.

The supporting bracket comprises a lower fork 12 which is united with an upper fork 13 by a web 14. The fork 13 is at right angles to the fork 12 and the web 15 braces and strengthens the bracket. The fork 12 is adapted to slip over the upper rail 16 of a chair or other piece of furniture and when so applied the bracket will ordinarily stand at an angle as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. A pin 16 extends through the upper fork 13 and is adapted to engage the notch 9 when the head 8 is slipped into the fork 13, the lower front edge of the head 8 at such times resting against the face 17 of the upper fork as shown in Fig. 2 so that when thus con nected the supporting arm 1 is held in a substantially horizontal position, the deeper notch 9 permitting the supporting arm to swing down slightly to form less than a right angle with the bracket. If the rail 16 of the piece of furniture was vertical the supporting arm 1 would be inverted so that the notch 10 would engage the pin 16 instead of the notch 9 and when so engaged the supporting arm would be held. in a horizontal.

position by reason of the notch 10 being The web 14: is provided with screw holes 18 enabling the bracket to be screwed to the wall 19 or any vertical sup port as indicated in Fig. 3, and when thus attached, as the bracket will be held in a.

vertical position, the supporting arm 1 to be held in a horizontal position should have the shallower notch 10 engaged with the pin 16 as shown in Fig. 3.

"Where the device is to be used on chairs in which the upper rail is round as indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 7, the bracket instead of being formed with the fork 12, will be provided with a lag 20 formed with a halfround notch 21 which is adapted to fit the curve of the upper back rail 22 of the chair. A half-round hoop 23 projects from the lug 20 and forms a half-round, notch 2a which receives the vertical spindle 25 of the chair and braces the bracket from tipping in either direction at the same time permits the bracket to be quickly disengaged from the chair by simply sliding the bracket along the upper rail 22 until the hoop 23 is moved away from the spindle 25, whereupon the bracket may be moved rearwardly to disengage the notch 21 from the upper rim 22. In other respects this form of bracket is similar to the preceding form.

What I claim is:

1. A strainer holder comprising a bracket adapted to be secured to a supporting object, a supporting arm detachably secured to said bracket. and a continuous hoop on said supporting arm adapted to support the upper ring of the strainer, said hoop having a notch to permit the ring of the strainer being passed through the hoop.

2. Astrainer support comprisingabracket adapt-ed to be attached to a suitable support, a supporting arm, means for attaching the supporting arm to said bracket at different angles, comprising notches on the supporting arm of different depths, a pin in said bracket to receive a notch and a hoop on said supporting arm adapted to support the upper rim of the strainer.

3. A strainer holder comprising a bracket formed with a lower fork adapted to be secured to the upper rail of a chair and with an upper fork at right angles to the lower fork, a su 'iporting arm having a head adapted to be received in the upper fork, means for detachably securing said head to the upper fork, a hoop on the other end of the supporting arm adapted to support the upper rim of the strainer.

4. A strainer support comprising a bracket formed with a lower fork and an upper fork at right angles thereto, a pin extending across the upper fork, a supporting arm having a flat head adapted to be received in the upper fork, said head having a notch in each side thereof, one of said notches being deeper than the other, and either of said notches adapted to engage with said pin, and a hoop on the supporting arm adapted to support the strainer.

5. A strainer support comprising a bracket formed with a lower fork and an upper fork at right angles thereto, a pin extending across the upper fork, a supporting arm having a flat head adapted to be received in the upper fork, said head having a notch in each side thereof, one of said notches being deeper than the other, and a hoop on the supporting arm adapted to support the strainer, a web between the upper fork and lower fork, said Web being provided with perforations, said supporting arm having a notch to receive the upper rim of the strainer when in a vertical position.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand at Los Angeles, California, this 1st day of September, 1910.

JOHN H. KNAPP.
