inner end of the brace snaps intothe aperture 6 in the wall arm. During this movement of the brace and owing to the eccentricity of the curves at the outer end of the shelf arm and brace, the brace binds with the eflect of firmly securing gether at this point so that no looseness or rattle will occur and, of course, owing to the irregular cross section of the parts they are interlocked against sidewise displacement.

I prefer to form of sheet metal pressed and bent to shape and it will be noted that the construction herein illustrated and described provides a means for manufacturing a stifi rigid bracket with a separable brace which is securely interlocked therewith against displacement in any direction. he interengagement of the projection 5 with the aperture 6 permitscf shipping and handling the bracket as if its two parts were permanently secured together. The inwardly turned ends of the brace and shelf arm provide a hookon whicl articles can be hung. I u
