Application filed July 16, 1912, Serial No. 709,889. Renewed November 5, 1913. Serial No. 799,388.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EDWIN J. HILLER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Taylorville, in the county of Christian and State of Illinois, have invented new and useful Improvements in Pipe-Hangers, of which the following is a specification.
My present invention relates to improvements in pipe hangers or brackets and has particular application to devices of this character for holding roof drainage pipes and the like in their applied positions upon the building.
A further object of my invention is the rovision of a device of this ty which may e readily applied to and detadh ed from the pipe and which will hold the pipe spaced from the walls of the building or other structure to which the same is=applied.
With the above and other objects in view, the arrangement of arts hereinafter set forth in and falling within the scope of the appended claims i In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a fragmentary perspective view of a drain ipe equipped with the present invention. l ig. 2 is a perspective view of my improved bracket or hanger, and Fig. 3 is a fragmentary sectional view thereof. 1
The device is preferably constructed of springy sheet metal of a configuration transversely conforming with that of a pipe to which it is to be connected.
With particular reference to the drawings it is seen that the device is formed of a single piece of metal which is provided with relatively adjustable sides 1 and 2 that can be sprun to such positions as will permit one to rea ily connect the device with or disconnect the same from the drain pipe. The sides 1 and 2 are of arcuate configuration and as illustrated the terminal 3 of the portion 1 is stamped to form a pair of parallel slots 4 and 5 which are separated from each other by an intervening bar 6. The terminal 7 of the side 2 is provided with lateral shoulders 8 and a ton e 9, the latter being disposed in line with t e slots 4 and 5 whereby it may be readily passed therethrough and then bent on itself as shown in Fig. 1. The shoulders 8 are adapted to engage against the bar 6 so as to limit the relative adjustments of the sides 1 and 2 in one direction.
The intermediate arcuate portion 10 of the device is folded on itself to provide companion brackets 11 and 12, each of which being provided with companion inner and outer portions 13 and 14 and substantially lateral attaching portions or lugs 15. Perforations are formed in the lugs 15 to accommodate nails or other equivalent fastening devices 17 that are adapted to be driven into the wall of a building asshown in Fig.
1. The companion inner and outer portions 13 and 14 of each of the brackets 11 and 12 are stamped to form a tongue 18 as shown in Fig. 3. The tongue 18 of one'of the portions is adapted to be upset as at 19 against the tongue of the adjacent portion or in other words both tongues are adapted to be clenched whereby the portions 13 and 14 are effectually secured together without solder, rivets or other permanent fastening means.
I claim l 1. A pipe hanger constructed of a single piece of metal and provided with relatively adjustable springy sides, the said sides being rovided with interfitting terminals whereby the device may be' operatively held in embracing engagement about a pipe, the inner ortion of the material being bent on itself at points adjacent to the inner terminals of the said relatively movable sides and the bent portions of the said material having stamped therefrom foldable tongues which are adapted to be bent up against one side of the said folded portions.
2. A pipe hanger constructed of asingle piece of metal provided with relatively adjustable springy sides and an intermediate co ecting portion, the said sides being pro via dd with interlocking terminals, and brackets formed on the intermediate ortion of the device and constructed by fol ing the material on itself to provide inner and outer portions .and retaining tongues stamped from the inner and outer portions, the
tongue? of one of the portions bein extended through the adjacent portion and ing bent up with the other tongue against the other portion.
3. A pipe hanger constructed from a single piece of metal having spaced brackets,
each of the brackets being provided with an inner portion and an outer portion, an intermediate arcuate portion of the material connecting the inner portions of the brackets together, relatively adjustable sides adapted for interlocking engagement and extended into the said outer portions of the bracket, and means stamped up from the inner and outer portions of the brackets and engaging against one of the portions whereby both of 10 the portions are permanently connected together.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
EDWIN J. HILLER.
