Be it known that I, elos'nrn KENZEY, a

The present attachment embodies its essential a shelf or foot-rest 5 and the inclined hangers '10 attached thereto The toot-rest 5 is rectangular in contour and has a depending flange 7- along the inner or rear edge thereof, and a depending'flange 6 alon the front or outer edge and end ther'eo The shelf or foot-rest and the depending flange-7 have a plurality of adjoining longh 'tudinal slots 9' and 8 therein, respectively,

It is also possible to posi the radiator, so that the hangers may be ad- 'justedwith ease and despatch and in an accurate manner. The nuts in having one of permitted. to slide vertically and horizontally, thenntsbeingat all times constrained .tion unless the bolts 14 are excessively unscrewed. 7

The inner ends of the hangers in order-to be enslots 8 in the flange '7, and it Will'be noted oi the shelf or foot-rest by loosening a bolt and sliding dhe hangers laterally. The

rest or shelf in order to sustain'the shelter ner position when the'e w radiator by passing the hangers between the sections of the radiator andin en aging perthe hooks a stay rod S which-w mit. the shelf or foot-rest to swing againstthe side of the radiator in order that the shelf or footrrest will be sustained in position on the side of the radiator. The hangers 10 being adjustable laterally permits the hangers to be adjusted to accommodate various radiators wherein the stay rods are spaced more'or less from the side of the radiator, and the hangersbeing also adjustable longitudinally permit the same to be adjusted in order to readily pass between the sections of the radiator. In this manner, it

j will be seen that the present attachment may. be applied to various sizes and forms of radiators, and the attachment will serve as a footrrest or as a shelf, whichever is desired or essential. AsshoWn in Fig. 1, the attachment is applied to one of the lower' stay' rods, but it is. apparent that the attach- -ment may also beapplied to the upper stay rod as indicated in dotted linesin the said fi ur The shelf orfcot-rest may be readily detached from the radiator by raising the same, in which event, the books 11 will disthat the attachment may be removed. vi

This. attachment. 'Will serve for-various purposes, as" Wil be apparent, and the at tachment as constructed in accordance With the present invention-will be simple, substantial and inexpensive in its construction,

as well as convenient and efficient in'u'se. The shelf or foot'rest may be constructed of metal, wood or any other material, and may claim without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is An attachment for radiators comprising a shelf or footsrest having :1 depending flange along-the inner edge and having longitudinal slots adjacent its inner edge, the flange having a plurality of adjoining longitudinal slots with the upper edges of-tlie slots lying in the plane of the bottom of the shelf or foot rest, bolts slidable in the slots of the shelf or foot-rest, inclined hangers having their inner ends passed through the slots in the flange and bifurcated to straddle the bolts, and having their free ends booked in order to engage the stay rod of a radiator so that the edge of the shelf or foot-rest and the flange 'is.seatab1e against the side of the radiator, and nuts engaged on the lower ends of the bolts andha'ving one of their faces ,slidably engaging the said flange to, prevent the rotation of the nuts, the inner ends of the hangers being clamped between :the bottom of the shelf or foot-rest and the respective nuts.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I'have-hereto afiixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
