PAINTERS BUCKET.

Application filed January 21, 1916.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, HARTVIG SonLnY, a citizen of Norway, residing at Macomb, in the county of McDonough and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Painters" Buckets, of which the following is a specification.

This invention has relation to certain new and useful improvements in painters buckets and has for its primary object, the provision of a bucket provided with means for supporting the same upon an inclined roof.

The invention has for another object, the provision of an attachment which may be readily applied to a bucket to support the same upon a roof in upright position regardless of the pitch of the roof.

The invention has for a further object, the provision of a bucket having adjustable supporting means adapted to catch upon a roof and support the bucket in upright position, regardless of the pitch of the roof, and means for automatically locking the sup porting means in adjusted position.

A still further object of the invention resides in the provision of a self-supporting bucket of the above stated character which will be of simple and cheap construction as well as highly efficient in use.

With the above and other objects in view, the invention resides in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more specifically set forth, pointed out in the appended claims, and shown in the drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of the bucket in use, Fig. 2 is a bottom plan View, partly in section, and Fig. 3 is a fragmentary detail section.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, in which similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, 1 designates the bucket, to the bottom of which is secured a bracket plate 2 adjacent one edge and having a raised portion 3 beneath which is extended the central portion of the spring locking member 4 which has its opposite ends curved inwardly, as shown at 5, then bent upon themselves, as shown at 6 and extended outwardly through the slots 7 in the upstanding portions 8 of a pair of stationary guide members 9 which are in turn secured to the bottom of the bucket 1 adjacent the side opposits that upon which the bracket plate 2 Specification of Letters Patent.

is mounted. ihe portions 10 of the spring lockin g member 4: extended through the slots 7 are offset and mounted in the ends of the U-shaped releasing slide 11, which ends are slidably engaged in the upstanding portions 8 of said stationary guide members 9, the free extremities 12 of said ends being bent at right angles to limit outward movement of said releasing slide 11. After being eX- tended through the slots 7 and secured in the ends of the releasing slide 11, the ends of the spring locking member 4 are turned and bent outwardly, as shown at 13, beneath the upwardly'ofi'set protecting portions 1 1 of the guide members 9 and finally the free extremities 15 of the spring locking member 9 are again bent at right angles and normally engaged in a pair of apertures 16 formed in the slidable supporting tubes 17, said extremities 15 being slidably engaged through guide openings 18 in the tubular guides 19. The tubular guides 19 are secured in suitable brackets 20 mounted upon the outer side of the bucket 1, as clearly shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings.

The adjustable and slidable supporting tubes 17 have their lower ends 21 pointed for engagement in a slanting roof and one edge 22 of the bracket plate 2 is also extended downwardly and sharpened for engagement in the roof to cooperate with the pointed lower ends 21 of the slidable supporting tubes 17 in securing the bucket 1 in upright position. It will be understood thatthe slidable supporting tubes 17 are suitably spaced from one another and connected adjacent their upper and lower ends by cross members 23 which are in turn con nected by the crossed bracing members 2-1, thereby assuring uniform adjustment of the slidable supporting tubes 17.

From the foregoing it will be apparent that it is simply necessary to press inwardly upon the main portion of the slidable releasing member 11 to force the portions 10 of the spring locking member d'toward the main looped portion of the same and thereby force inwardly the free eXtremities 15 of said spring locking member 4: sufliciently to withdraw the same from the slidable supporting tubes 17. The tubes 17 may then be moved in the proper direction in the tubular guides 19 and automatically locked in adjusted postion by simply releasing the member 11 and permitting the spring looking member 4. to act. It will be understood that the adjustment of the slidable support ing tubes 17 should depend upon the pitch of the roof or other inclined surface upon which the bucket is to be secured. It Will be evident that this bucket will be especially adapted for use by painters, tinners and other workmen.

While the preferred embodiment of the invention has been shown and described, it

will be understood that minor changes may be made within the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit of the invention or sacrificing any of the advantages of the same.

v fhat is claimed is:

1. The combination with a bucket; of a bracket plate mounted upon the bottom of said bucket and provided with a surface engaging edge, adjustable surface engaging members mounted upon said bucket for cooperation with said bracket plate to secure the bucket in upright position upon an inclined surface, guide means for said adjustable surface engaging members, a spring locking member for said adjustable surface engaging members, said locking member being mounted in said bracket plate, guide means for said locking member, and a releasing member for withdrawing said locking member from said adjustable surface engaging member.

2. A bucket having a stationary surfaceengaging plate secured to its bottom, adjustable surface-engaging members mounted for sliding movement upon one side of said bucket, supporting means for said members, spring-locking means for said members, said stationary surface-engaging plate inclosing a portion of and serving as supporting means for said spring-locking means, guide means for said spring-locking means, and means for moving said springlocking means to inoperative position.

3. The combination with a bucket; of a bracket member mounted upon the bottom of the same and having. a surface-engaging edge, a spring locking member mounted in said bracket, adjustable surfaee-engaging members mounted upon said bucket, said spring-locking means having engagement with said adjustable surface-engaging members to lock the latter in adjusted position, guiding means for said spring-locking means, and means for disengaging said spring-locking means from said adjustable surface-engaging members.

a. The combination with a bucket; of a bracket plate mounted upon the bottom of the same and having a surface-engaging edge extended at an angle, adjustable surface-engaging members mounted upon said bucket, means for supporting and guiding said surface-engaging members, a double spring-locking member mounted in said bracket plate and having its opposite end engaged with said adjustable surface-engaging members to lock the latter in adjusted position, and means engaged with said double-spring-locking member to force the ends of the same away from said surface-engaging members.

5. The combination with a bucket; of a stationary bracket plate mounted upon the bottom of said bucket and having a surfaceengaging edge, adjustable surface-engaging members mounted upon said bucket at a point opposite said bracket plate, a curved spring-locking member mounted in said bracket plate and engaged with said adjustable surface-engaging members to lock the latter in adjusted position, the said curved locking member having opposite turned portions, guiding means for said spring-locking member, said opposite curved portions being engaged through said guiding means, and means engaged with said curved portions of said locking member to force the same away from said adjustable surfaeeengaging members.

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

HARTVIG SORLEY.
