7 Specification of Letters Patent. Application filed July 24,1912. Serial No. 711,375.

T 0 all whom it may concern Be it known that 1, JAMES SCANLAN, a citizenof the United States, residing at Disco, in the county of Hancock and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Stovepipe-Holders, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings. V

This invention relates to improvements in stove pipe fasteners and has for its objec-t the provision of simple, efficient and inexpensive means to retain the stovepipe in the hole leading to the chimney flue and to also prevent separation of the pipe sections at the joint thereof.

Another object of the invention resides in the provision of a holder for stovepipes which may be easily and quickly attached to and detached from the pipe, and'is capable of a wide range of adjustment to permit of its application to the pipe when disposed at'various distances from the chimneyhwa-ll.

Still another object of the invention is to provide a device for securely retaining the end of the pipe in the hole in the chimney wall and which may also be utilized as a pipe hanger to support a horizontally disposed pipe.

With the above and other objects in view as willbecome apparent as the description proceeds, the invention consists in certain constructions, combinations and arrange ments of the parts that I shall hereinafter fully describe and claim.'

For a full understanding of theinvention, reference is to be had to the following de-' scription and accompanying drawing in which- Figure l is a side elevation illustrating the application of the device and showing the same attached to the vertically disposed Stovepipe and to a' chimney wall; Fig. 2- is a section taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1;

and Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of one of the longitudinally extensible members.

"Corresponding and like parts are referred to in-the following description and designated in the accompanying drawings by lik reference characters.

Referring in detail to the drawing, 5 designates two. similar'plates one of which is longitudinally adjustable upon the other.

Each of these plates is provided with alongitudinal slot 6, through which a transversely disposed bolt 7 is passed. This bolt is provided with a head on one end, the

other end thereof being threaded to receive a nut 8. I preferably employ two of these connecting bolts between the adjustable plates to secure a rigid clamp. for the eX- tensible plates when the wing nuts 8 are threaded-into binding engagement with said plates, whereby the'asame are held against casual relative movement.

The plates 5 are each provided in one of their endswith the inclined notches or recesses 9 which open upon corresponding longitudinal edges of said plates. A twopart loop- 10 is removably mounted upon the end of one of the plates 5, the sections of the loop being hingedly connected as shown at 11. The other ends of the loop sections are provided with openings to receive a bolt 12, which is also adapted to be disposed in the notch or recess 9 in the end of one of the plates 5 upon which said loop is mounted.

Patented Jaaia, was.

A suitable clamping nut 13 is threaded upon one end of this-bolt to hold the loop against movement with relation to said plate. Upon the notched end of the other of the adjustable plates5, an attaching member 14 is mounted, This member is formed from a single piece of metal, bent upon itself havingits ends spaced apart and disposed in a plane at right angles to the plane of the intermediate portions of said plate, as shown at 15. 'Theseend portions of the attaching plate are also provided with openings to receive a bolt 16, which is adapted to be received in the notch or recess 9 provided in the end of one of the plates 5. The -at-tach-. ing member 14 is providedwith openings for the reception of screws, nails or anal ogous fastening devices whereby said member1 1may be securelyattached to the chimney wa sition adjacent, the flue opening, and the notched ends of the movable bars or-plates A nut 17 is, of course, threaded on the bolt 16 to clamp the ends of the atare engaged with the bolts 12 and 16 respectively in the manner above described.

The nuts on the ends of said loolts urc edjnsted to tightly clamp the sleeve or loop end the attaching member to the adjustable The bolts '5 disposed in the slots o'l the he] 3 are moved. to the ends oi the slots in the respective hers and the nuts there-oat adjusted into clamping engagement with the hers thus provid 2i snhstztntiully rigid connection between, the pipe-engagi g loop 10, and the uttuching nicn'iher lit. providing-the plates 3 with the notches 9 clined in ielzitivel opposite directions, liability of the ends o:t said plates littii'zg ott of the bolts 16 or in the event that the holder is RCOlGc'ltflllff struck will he eltectuallv "prevei ed.
