Abstract

The invention relates to a clip-on fixing system by means of which a horizontal rest can be adapted to various profiles of cans or similar and can be placed directly thereon. Said fixing system can be used with a large variety of rim sizes while ensuring a good grip of the rest on the can. The inventive rest comprises elastic or partly elastic parts or elements called clips (6, 7) which are fixed to the rim of a can. The rim of said can is placed between the clips in a mounted position of the rest. The inventive device allows rests to be fixed to numerous rims of cans, buckets, containers, etc. (cf. fig. 1) while one or several paintbrushes or brushes are placed directly above the can in order for leftover paint or another material to drip or be eliminated on the front part (4) of the rest, whereby dripping products fall into the can rather than into the groove receiving the lid or outside the can. The inventive device is particularly suitable for paintbrush and brush rests.

   HORIZONTAL HOLDER WITH CLAMPS, FOR BRUSHES OR BRUSHES
The present invention relates to accessories for paints, glues, varnishes, more particularly brush holders, brushes, adapting to boxes, buckets, etc., paints, or the like, in all sectors of use.



   Many products of different shapes are offered on the market.



   Brushes called receptacles are offered on the market, generally fixing on the outside of boxes, buckets, containers, etc., by system of hooks, magnets, adhesives.



   These receptacles consist of one or more small trays intended to receive working tools, in particular brushes. The lower part of these so-called tanks receives the paint flows.



   These devices have many drawbacks.



   When. the user takes paint, glue, etc., with a brush, he usually removes the excess on the edge of the box, which has the effect, in particular the filling of the groove intended for the lid, cause splashes when closing, or stick the latter, not counting the flows outside the box. The principle of the receptacles cited above makes it difficult to remove excess paint at the end of the receptacle. This system requires you to take paint, to pass with the brush not drained above the box, in order to eliminate the surplus on the edge of the receptacle.



   The second drawback lies in the recovery of paint flows in said receptacle. The fact of storing one or more brushes in this type of support, obliges you regularly to pour the paint being at the bottom of the receptacle, thus resulting in impractical manipulations, without counting on the losses of paint that all this entails.



   The third drawback is that these receptacles have a certain bulk. Generally, we find them outside of water, boxes, their dimensions prohibiting any fixing inside a box or a bucket filled with paint.



   If we want to perform this operation, it is essential to empty a certain amount of paint contained in the box, which demonstrates the limited use that we can do with this type of material.

 <Desc / Clms Page number 2>

 



   A brush holder is also proposed, having the patent number US5853157.



   This system is designed to be fixed above boxes, pots, etc., in an inclined position. It is composed on its upper part of a kind of ring to hold a brush. Put a brush on this type of support, first requires inserting it into the ring provided for this purpose, something which is not very easy when you imagine the brush with paint. The support being in rounded shape, it will not be very practical to remove the excess paint with a flat brush.



   In addition, the support has an inclination of 15 relative to the box, which tends to direct the flows of paint towards the handle of the brush, something which is not very pleasant to use.



   The fastening system is designed in two parts.



   The first part is intended to be fixed on boxes with an inner rim, more precisely on the groove rim of the cover.



   This system is equipped with two elements, one of which is hooked on the inner groove edge of the cover and not on the box edge. Once the front element is engaged on the groove rim, it suffices to pivot the support in order to position it. We all know that there are several types of paint box or other covers. Some boxes do not have the lid rim in the same place as others, and do not have the same dimensions of box rims.



  In this case, it will be difficult to use the support, the front part of which hooks onto the groove rim.



   The second element is designed with a fixed vertical part, and a curved vertical part called elastic which can be fixed on buckets, boxes, with external rim, or without rim. With this fixing system, if you are in the presence of a very thin bucket rim, the positioning and the maintenance of the support relative to the box will certainly not be the same as if you are with a much larger rim, which also limits use.

 <Desc / Clms Page number 3>

 



   The present invention aims to create a horizontal support of brushes, brushes, simple to design and use, capable of adapting to many profiles of boxes, buckets, containers, while attaching directly to the upper edge so that the excess paint or drips fall directly inside.



   The present embodiment of the horizontal support relates to the invention of a fixing system with so-called elastic or partially elastic clamps, allowing the adaptation of the support, horizontally on the upper edge of the box. These pliers have the role of pinching the entire box edge over the entire thickness and not certain parts of the edge, which would limit its use. It can be adapted to inner or outer rim boxes. The dimensions of these clamps are defined during design in order to be able to use the support on many box profiles or so-called boxes while ensuring good support.



   The advantage of this fixing system compared to those already existing is to be able to use it on a very large number of box profiles or so-called boxes, while some use two different principles of fixing on the same support. It allows the user to be able to fix his support on a box filled with paint or other, to eliminate the surplus contained in the brush, directly at the end of the support and not on the edge of the box, without spillage. are housed in the groove for the cover, or outside. It is also much more compact and functional than most of the receptacles mentioned above.



   It also has the advantage of facilitating the working conditions of the user. Indeed, when moving or temporarily stopping use, just place your brush directly on the support without having to hold it in your hand, or place it on the floor.



   This support can be made in two different ways.



   It can be supplied to the user in its final form so that he can use it as it is, or else fold it himself, which in this case makes it possible to limit the bulk, to reduce manufacturing costs and conditioning.



   These two manufacturing methods use the same fixing system.

 <Desc / Clms Page number 4>

 



   The present invention will be better understood from the figures in which: * Fig 1 shows the general view of the horizontal support fixed to a box.



  * Fig 2-3-4, repeat the side views of the support.



  * Fig 5 shows the top view.



  * Fig 6-7-8-9, (views from below), show the detailed views of the so-called clamping system.



  * Fig 10, shows the top view of the support variant to be folded by the user.



   The horizontal support (1) consists of a so-called upper part (2) and a so-called lower part (3).



   The upper part (2) of the support, is intended to receive one or more brushes, brushes, in a horizontal or inclined position, (Ex: fig 1), with the possibility during use, of eliminating the excess paint , glue, etc., on the inclined front part (4) (fig 5) of the support, surplus or flow falling directly into said box (Ex: figl). The front part (4) can be tilted over the entire width of the support (Ex: fig 5).



   The so-called lower part (3) of the support, consists of elements and or parts (6) (7) called clips, forming the fixing system. These so-called elements and or parts can be elastic or partially elastic, allow the support to be adapted to numerous box profiles (Ex: fig 1).



   The so-called clamps (6) (7) must be at least two, to allow the support to be fixed on a box or so-called box (Ex: fig 8).



   They can be in greater number (Ex: fig 6,7, 9), independent of each other, or partially independent (Ex: fig 2,3, 4), while retaining the same fixing system.

 <Desc / Clms Page number 5>

 



   The elements and or parts (6) (7) can be provided partially or entirely with grooves (5), (Ex: fig 2,3), more or less long, more or less wide, in order to increase the elasticity of said clamps. These clamps are of height and thickness defined so that they are sufficiently elastic in order to adapt the support to a very large number of boxes or so-called boxes. The more elastic the clamps, the more it will be possible to compensate for large deviations in the dimensions of the box edges. The parts and or elements (6) (7) can be designed without a groove (Ex: fig 4).



   The parts and or elements called pliers (6) (7), can be molded in one piece with the support, or can be added in whole or in part by gluing, heat sealing, welding, heat sealing, riveting, screwing.



   The elements and or parts (6) (7) can be made wholly or partially from plastic, rubber, elastomer, steel, alloy, composite materials. The ends of the parts and or elements (6) (7) being in contact in whole or in part with the rim of boxes, can be of rounded, partially rounded shapes (Ex: fig 2, 3, 4), angular, partially angular ( Ex: fig 2,3, 4).



     In use, the so-called elastic elements and or parts must be strong enough not to deteriorate during use. Indeed, in use, these parts and or elements must adapt to numerous profile dimensions, which requires more or less flexibility (Ex: fig 6, 7).



   To fix the support, it suffices to apply pressure against said box in order to separate the parts and or elements (6) (7). Once positioned, the box edge is between the parts and or elements (6) (7) (Ex: fig 1).

 <Desc / Clms Page number 6>

 



   The elements and or parts (6) (7) can be located face to face (Ex: fig 8) offset from each other (Ex: fig 7), at any location of the support (Ex: fig: 7) . They can be parallel to each other, partially parallel (Ex: fig 6,7, 8,9), with open angles, partially open (Ex: fig 6), with closed angles, partially closed (Ex: fig 7).



   The horizontal support can be entirely or partially made of plastic, rubber, cardboard, plasticized cardboard or derivatives, elastomer, steel, alloy, composite materials.



   The present variant of folding to yourself, (Ex: fig 10) uses the same fixing system mentioned above, but for reasons of cost and or space and / or packaging, obliges the user to carry out himself- even folding so you can use it.



   This support is made pre-drawn and or pre-folded and or pre-formed, of plastic, cardboard, plasticized cardboard, etc., so that the user only has to fold the parts and or elements (6) (7) (Ex: fig 10) ensuring the attachment to the box or said box as well as the part (8) used to hold the brush, following the paths provided for this purpose.



   Once the parts and or elements (6) (7) (8) are shaped, the support is positioned on the box or said box, in the same way as the molded or thermoformed support, while ensuring similar functions.



   This embodiment gives an extra flat support before folding.



   The support can be manufactured in any size to allow the maintenance of one or more working tools. It can also be made in any color.
