INVENTUR Norfan 61 A TTORNEYS MORTON S. HILL, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented June 18, 1918.
Application iiled November 27, 1917. Serial No. 204,299.
citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borou h of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and tate of New York, have invented a new and Improved Tool-Holder, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to tool holders, and particularly to an improved construction of holder for electricians, wiremen, linemen, and other workmen, and has for an object the rovision of means to be readily attached to t e belt or clothin of the workman for holding certain tools in position for instant use.
Another object in view is to provide a clip readily applied and readily removed, formed with a socket and a pair of spring hook members for supporting different tools held in such a manner as to permit instant removal.
In the accompanying drawing:
Figure 1 is a front elevation of the tool holder disclosin an embodiment of the invention, same being shown in plan.
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal vertical section throu h the holder shown in Fig. 1.
Re erring to the accompanying drawing by numerals, 1 indicate an ordinary belt worn by an electrician or other workman over which the resilient hook members 2 are passed, said hook members being bent at 3, y
and preferably formed integral with the straps 4 and 5, said straps being connected at the lower end by a transverse bar 6, and by a bar 7 near the top. Bar 7 has a bracket 8 rigidly secured thereto by an desired means, as for instance rivets or so] er, said bracket extending outwardly as shown in Fig. 2 so as to accommodate the pliers 9. The bracket 8 is made with side walls 10 against which the handles of the pliers 9 rest, whereby the pliers are held in place by gravity and are in position for quick removal.
Connected in any desired manner, as for instance by solder to the lower end of the supports 4 and 5 are clips 11 and 12, each of said clips being bent at 13 so as to provide downwardly extending sections 14, said downward sections being in turn bent at 15 providing hook members 16. The sections 14 and 16 are arranged in such a manner that the section 14 will resiliently press against bar 6 and the upper end of the section 16 will resiliently press against the section 14. By this construction and arrangement when the rings 17 and 18 are applied the hook members move away from section 14 permitting the rings to be placed in position and also move away when the rings are removed from the position shown in Fig. 1. The rings 17 and 18 are connected by eyelets to any desired tools, as for instance knife 19 and screw driver 20. It will also be noted that any other tools beside these may be supported and also other tools may be supported by bracket 8.
When the device is in use it is ut over the belt 1 or other part of some ot er garment of the workman and the tools all ap plied by a downward movement, and to remove them by an upward movement. This holder is especially adapted for use by electricians who use certain instruments or tools at the top of a ladder and find it a great convenience to have the tool on their person so as to revent descending to the ground for additlonal tools.
The holder has been described as being made of a number of parts and connected together in a suitable manner, but it is evident that if desired the entire holder could be stamped from a single blank, except the bracket 8, which could be soldered, riveted, or otherwise rigidly secured in place.
What I claim is:
1. A tool holder of the character described comprising a body comprising a pair of vertical plates, a plurality of transverse stiffening plates, a pan of hook members for engaging a support, a bracket connected to said body near the upper end, said bracket being formed for receiving a tool, a pair of spring hooks connected to the lower end of said body on each side, each of said hooks having the upper end resiliently pressing against the remaining part of the hook so that an article fitting into the hook cannot accidentally be removed.
2. A tool holder of the character described comprising a pair of hook members, a supporting body for said hook members, said hook members extending upwardly, a bracket forming a socket, said bracket being adapted to support a tool in such a manner as to be removed vertically while the arrangement of the hook members is such as to require the tools to be removed vertically.
