I PAUL L. L. YORGENSEN, or HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, PAUL L. L. YORGEN- SEN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Hartford, in the,county of Hartford and State of Connecticut, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in lVrench-' Holders, of which the following is a specifi- I cation.
This invention relates to a wrench holder. While the device is probably susceptible of general use it was primarily designed and is especially intended for use in confor applying or removing hollow screws. A wrench of this character has a shank or body and a head at an angle to the body or shank, the operative portion of the head being of a shape to correspond with thesocket of the hollow screw in connection with which said wrench is to be used. These heads vary in shape, as will be obvious. These wrenches are light and. being subjected to strains and stresses not'only bend but break down. I provide a holder for this type of wrench which materially reinforces the latter, strengthening it in fact to such an extent that the life thereof. is materially prolonged. a
In the drawings accompanying and forming part of the present specification I have shown in detail one convenient form of embodiment of the invention. which to enable those skilled in the art to practise the same will be set forth fully in the following description. I do not restrictmyself to this particular disclosure; I may depart therefrom in several respects within the scope of the invention defined by the claims following said description.
Referring to said drawings: Figure 1 is a top plan view. Fig. 2 a bottom plan view,
and Fig. 3 a longitudinal section of a holder involving the invention. Fig. 4 1s a side elevation of said holder showing a wrench carried thereby. Fig. 5 is a detail view of the wrench.
Like characters refer to like parts throughout the several views.
In Fig. 5 I have shown a socket or hollow screw wrench; This .wrench has an 8101b.
gated shank or body 3 and a head 4.. The head l is at an angle to the shank or body 3. This angle may vary. As illustrated the head is united with the shank upon a curve. The cross sectional form of the wrench may vary. That shown is hexagonal.

The holder is denoted'in a general way by 5 and its longitudinal shape approximately corresponds to that of the wrench. The body 6, however, of the holder is longer than the body of the wrench, while the head 7 of the holder is shorter than the head of the wrench. I V
The holder 5 is provided with a seat for the wrench. This seat may be of any suitable character which willproperly receive the wrench. As shown the seat is formed partly in the bodv 6 and theremainder in junction with those wrenches which are used I as shown has a. longitudinally extending groove or channel 8 therein, while the head I I I 7 has a hole 9, the hole or opening beinginclosed and the channel or groove 8 leading into or communicating with the hole 9, the channel 8 near its forward end being bent to conform to the curvature of the bend at the head 7 and shank 6. .This hole 9 is inclosed. To use the wrench in connection with the holder 5, the head .4: of the wrench will be passed through the hole 9 and the shank 3 when the wrench is used, it is so "strengthened as to virtually prevent, certainly under ordinary conditions, the bending of the wrench and the'breaking down of the head. Thev channel or groove 8 is slightly longer then dropped into the channel 8, the channel I I I than the shank of the wrench 3. This, however, is a detail.
What I claim is: 1. A holder for wrenches of scribed, comprising abody provided with a head at an angle thereto, the body and the 'head having jointly a wrench seatand that the class depart of the seat which is in the body being in the form of a longitudinally extending groove. I
2. Aholder comprising abody'provided with a head at an angle thereto, the body having a longitudinally extending groove 1 and the head'an inclosed hole into which the groove leads. p
3. A'holder comprising a body having. a head at an angle thereto, the body being unitedw'ith'thc headhpon a-curveand'hzw- I-n-testimonywhereof affix my signature ing a longitudinally extending groove, t-heinpresence-of two Witnesses. 7 head having'a-n incloscdgholc and him. groove .L..
