GUSTAF CHINDGR-EN', OF DENVER, COLORADO.

PAINT-CAN CARRIER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Sept. 1 1914.

- Application filed February 18, 1914. Serial No. 819,572.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, G'Us'rAr CHINDGREN, a subject of Gustav V, King of Sweden, and having declared my intention of becoming a citizen of the Fnited States, residing at Denver, in the county of Denver and State of Colorado, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Paint-Can Carriers, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a paint-can carrier its objects residing in the provision of a device of simple construction which has means for securing it to the body of a person and which is capable of holding one or more cans of paint within easy reach of the user and in a constantly upright position.

The carrier has furthermore a receptacle for brushes and other small articles and it is particularly adapted for use of sign painters, frcscoers and other artisans engaged in applying paints or other liquids upon vertical and elevated surfaces.

An embodiment of my invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in the various views of which like parts are similarl y designated, and in which,

Figure 1 is a perspective view of my paint carrier showing the manner in which it is used, Fig. 2, a plan view of the device, Fig. 3, a front view of the same partially in section, and Fig. 4, av transverse section taken along the line 4-4, Fig. 2.

Referring more specifically to the drawings the reference numeral 2 designates a trough -shaped receptacle provided along one of its longitudinal sides with a central, inwardly curved shield 3 which in practice engages the body to which the receptacle is attached. A strap 4 and buckle 5 fastened to the shield at points adjacent its upright edges, provide means for fastening the receptacle around the waist of the user, as is shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings.

The receptacle is reinforced along its upper, forward edge by an outwardly projecting flange 6 and in its side opposite to that which includes the shield, it has a plurality of apertures 7 formed to receive and hold headed buttons 8 which form. part of the paint can holders. These holders consist of cylindrical baskets 9 preferably made of a number of U-shaped strips 10 which intersect in the center of their transverse portions to form the bottom of the respective holder and which at the outer ends of their parallel parts are rigidly connected by means of circular bands 12.

The baskets are pivotally suspended by means of trunnions 13 attached to the band at diametrically opposite points, in U- shaped bails 14: which at the centers of their body-portions, carry the buttons 8 by means of which the holders are attached to the receptacle 2. The bails 14: have at opposite sides of their respective buttons, rounded projections 15 for engagement with the forward side of the receptacle. The means for attaching the holders to the receptacles permit of their swinging in an are about axes coincident with those of their respective buttons, whileat the same time they are movable about transverse axes by reason of their pivotal connection with the bails. It will thus be observed that the baskets have a universal movement with relation to the receptacle with which they are connected and when Weighted by cans of paint, they will in consequence constantly maintain an upright position, irrespective of the movements of the person to Whose body the device is attached, and thereby prevent spilling of the contents of the cams. The projections on the bails which engage the surface of the receptacle minimize the triotional contact between these parts and thereby facilitate the movements of the holder about the points at which they are connected with the receptacle.

Vhen the device is secured to the body of a person by the strap fastened around the waist as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, the paint cans placed in the baskets are within easy reach of the user, spilling of their contents is prevented by the universal connections of the baskets in which they are held, with the receptacle, and the latter pro-- vides a handy depository for the brushes and other articles most frequently used by painters.

While I have shown and described my carrier in the best form at present known to me, I desire it understood that modifications in the arrangement and construc tion of the parts may be resorted to within the spirit of my invention as defined in the following claims, and that while the device is particularly adapted for the sup port of paint cans, brushes and other articles used by painters and frescoers, it may by simple changes in the proportions and versal joint whereby it form of its different holding means, be readily adapted for the use of other artisans whose occupation requires having liquid material within easy reach.

Having thus described my invention what I claim and desire to secure by Letters- Patent is:

1. A carrier of the character described comprising a receptacle having means for securing one of its sides a shield for engagement with said body, and a holder connected at the opposite side of the receptacle by a uniis constantly maintained in an upri ht position.

2. A carrier 0% the character described a receptacle having at one of shield to engage the body of a attached to said shield for comprising 1ts sides, a person, means fastening the receptacle on said body, and

a holder connected at the opposite sideot the receptacle by a universal joint whereby it is constantly maintained in an upright position.

3. A carrier of the character described comprising a member having meansfor securing it to the body of a person, a suspension member pivotally connected with the first-mentioned member, and a holder pivotally suspended from said suspensionmemberr 4. A carrier of the character described comprising a member having means for securing it-to the body of a person, a bail pivotally connected with said member, and a holder pivotally suspended in said bail. 5. A carrier of thecharacter described comprising a member having means for securing it to the body of a person, a bail pivotally and detachably connected with said member, and a holder pivotally suspended in said bail.

6. A carrier of the character described comprising a member having means for securing it to the body of a person, a bail pivotally connected with said member, and a holder pivotally suspended in said bail, said bail having friction-reducing projections for engagement with said member.

7. A carrier of the character described comprising a member having means for. se-

it to the body of a person, and at curing it to the body of a person, a suspension-member pivotally connected with the first-mentioned member, and a holder pivotally suspended from said suspensionmember and composed of a plurality of U- shaped straps intersecting at their transverse portions to form the bottom of the holder, and connected at the ends of their parallel portions bya circular band.

8. A carrier of the character described comprising a member having means for securing it to the body of a person, a bail pivotally connected with the said member,and a holder composed of a plurality of U- shaped straps intersecting at their transverse portions to form the bottom of the holder, and connected at the ends of their parallel portions by a circular, trunnioned band, the said'bail having openings to receive the trunnions on said band.

9. A carrier of the character described comprising a member having means for securing it to the body of a person, a bail having a centrally disposed, headed button, and a trunnioned holder suspended in said bail,'the said member having an opening adapted to receive and hold said button for the pivotal and detachable connection of the bail therewith.

10. A carrier of the character described comprising a body-engaging member, means for securing said member against the body of a person, and a paint-can holder connected with said member by a universal joint whereby it is constantly maintained in an upright-position during movement of the said body.

11. A carrier of the character described comprising a portable receptacle, means for securing said receptacle against the body of a person, and a paintcan holder connected with said receptacle by a universal joint whereby it is constantly maintained in an upright position during movement of the said body.

In testimony whereof I have afiixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.
