Specification of Letters Iatent.
Patented May 26, 1914.
Application filed May 26, 1913. Serial No. 769,986.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that 1, Green Younr, a citizen of the United States, residing at Indianapolis, in the county of Marion and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bag-Holders; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same. 7
This invention relates to improvements in. bag holders.
One object of the invention is to provide a bag holder having an improved construction of supporting mechanism whereby a bag may be firmly held in open position and be readily engaged with and removed from the support.
Another obj cot is to provide a bag holder which will be simple, strong, durable and inexpensive in construction, eilicient and reliable in operation and well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction, and the combination and arrangement of parts as will be more fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings: Figure 1 is a side view of my improved bag holder; Fig. 2 is a plan view thereof; Fig. 3 is a perspective view of one member of said holder with the bag removed; Fig. 4c is a plan view of the upper ring, parts being broken away and in section, and in dotted lines showing the manner in which the ring is opened to permit the removal of the bag therefrom.
My improved ba g holder comprises a supporting frame which may be of any suitable shape and which preferably comprises a ring 1 of stiff wire, the ends of which are twisted together and bent at right angles to form an upwardly projecting hanger 2 in the upper end of which is an eye or loop 3 whereby the hanger may be engaged with a nail or other support. On each side of the hanger 2 the wire rod forming the ring 1 is bent to form a pair of rearwardly projecting spacing loops 4 the sides of which are twisted together as shown whereby the loops are made more rigid.
The bag 5 shown in connection with this holder may be of any suitable length and constructed of cheese cloth or any suitable fabric. This bag 5 is shown slitted clownwardiy for a short distance or has the seam therein left open for a portion of its length to facilitate the engagement of the bag with its expanding and holding ring 6 and as shown at '2' in Fig. 1 of the drawings. In the upper edge of the bag is formed a casing 8 which receives the ring (3, said ring being open and having secured to one of its ends a short socket or ferrule 9 with which the opposite end of the ring is rcmovably engaged and in which said end is held by the spring action of the ring as will be readily understood. By thus constructing the bag and its holding ring (3 it will be seen that when it is desired to remove the bag from the ring it is simply necessary to spring the loose end of the ring out of engagement with the socket and to force the ends of the ring apart a sufficientdistance to permit the casing to be slipped from the ring. When the bag is to be replaced on the ring the free end of the same is again disengaged from the socket in the manner described and inserted in the end of the casing at one edge of the slit 7 whereupon the ring is worked entirely through the casing, thus attaching the bag to the ring after which the end of the ring is again sprung into the socket 9 and the edges of the slit drawn together as will be readily understood.
The ring 6 is slightly larger than the ring 1 of the supporting frame so that when the bag is applied to the latter the ring 6 and upper end of the bag will rest on the ring 1 of the supporting frame and will thus hold the bag in open position. By thus forming the bag holding ring 6 it will be seen that in order to apply the bag to the supporting frame it is simply necessary to pass the bag through the ring 1 of the frame until the ring 6 comes into engagement with the ring 1 and in removing the 'ag from the supporting frame, it is simply necessary to grasp the ring 6 and upper end of the bag and to draw the latter upwardly through the ring 1 of the frame. By providing the spacing loops 4- it will be seen that when the hanger is engaged with a nail or similar support driven in a wall that the ends of the loops will engage the latter and thus hold the ring 1. and the bag supported thereby spaced from the wall, which will prevent the bag from coming into con tact therewith and will permit a receptacle to be placed beneath the bag a sufficient distance to catch the contents passing through all sides of the bag, should the bag be used as a strainer.
Various changes in the form, proportion, and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the principle or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention as claimed.
aving thus described my invention, what I claim is:
1. A bag holder comprising a wire rod bent to form a ring having a portion thereof twisted and bent at right angles to provide a hanger, the portions of said ring on opposite sides of said hanger adjacent thereto being folded and extended laterally in the same plane as the body portion of said ring to form spacing members.
2. A bag holder comprising a wire rod bent to form a ring having a portion thereof twisted and bent at right angles to provide a hanger, the portions of said ring on opposite sides of said hanger adj aeent thereto being folded and extended laterally in the same plane as the body portion of said ring to form spacing members, and means connected with a bag for supporting it on said supporting ring.
in testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Mus. GRACE YOUNT.
