Specification of Letters vPatent.
Application led November 26, '1913. Serial No. 803,196.
adjustable brackets and the primary object,
of the invention is to provide a-device of this character by means of which shelves, or other articles, such as kitchen sinks, may be maintained in a truly horizontal posltion in spite of irregularities in the wall or support to which it is to be applied.
A secondaryobject is toprovide a device of this character whichwill be simple, strong and eflicient in operation and well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed. L
With the above. objects in view, the in. vention resides in certain novel features of structure herein described and claimed and shown in the drawings, wherein Figure 1 is an edge view of a shelf supported by a pair of my improved brackets, Fig. 2 is an end view thereof, and Fig. 3 is a vertical section on an enlarged scale, on the line 33 of Fig. 1,'showing one of the brac ets in an'adjusted position..
rIn the accompanying drawings, the
vnumeral 1 designates my limproved adjust' able bracket which ishere shown as comprising a fixed arm 2 and a movable arm 3,'
. the two being formed of fiat metal bars and hingedly connected at their inner ends as at 4.' Although this hinged connection 4 may be in any suitable form, I preferably provide the fixed arm 2 with a knuckle 2 at its upper end, said knuckle bein adapted to-'seat between co-acting knuc es 3 on the movable arm 3. p
At suitable pointsJ the arms 2 and 3 are bent to form bearing loops 5, said loops being slotted as at 6 'for a purpose to appear.
Disposed across the angle between the arms 2 and 3 is a longitudinally adjustable brace bar here shown as comprising a pair of T-headed bolts .7 having the inner ends o f their Shanks threaded in opposite directions for the reception of a turn buckle 8 and lock nuts 9. It -will be seen, by reference tothe drawings, that the heads 10 of the bolts 7 are revolubly mounted in the bearing loops 5 of the arms 2 and 3, and'.
that the Shanks of said bolts pass through -the slots in said loops.
Both arms of the bracket, as. will be clearly seen by reference to Fig. 3 of the drawlngs, are provided with openings through which fastening screws 10 are passe to secure said arms to hthe, shelf and the support therefor. y
' By the construction above described, in spite of irregularities in the wall or other support to which the shelf is to be applied, I may maintain the Vshelf in a truly horizontal position, or-if desired, I may adjust the shelf itself to any desired angle.
Although I have described my invention with considerable minuteness, I do not wish to be limited to details of construction other than those amplified inthe appended claim. Havmg thus describedmyinvention, what I vclaim as new is A bracket comprising a pair of flat arms pivotally connected at their inner ends and having portions of their lengths bent to form bea-ring loops, said loops being provided with slots, T-headed bolts having their heads journaled in said loops and their shanks projecting through said slots and oppositely threaded, and a turn buckle con-v necting said threaded Shanks.
.In testimony whereof I have hereunto set myvhand in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
