I. S. HORN BROOM RACK.
APPLICATION. FILED OCT. 2. I917.
1 72,265. Patented July 9, 1918.
JACOBS. HORN, 0F MUENSTER, TEXAS.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented July 9, 1918.
Application filed October 2, 1917. Serial No. 194,354.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JAcoB S. HORN, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Muenster, in the county of Cooke and State of Texas, have invented new and useful Improvements in Broom-Racks, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to an improved and convenient means for holding brooms and similar articles when not in use.
Its principal object is to provide a neat and effective device of this character which may be easily attached at an appropriate point on the wall of a room or wherever it is designed to hang a broom.
Another object of the invention is to provide a device which may be easily and cheaply made and therefore, placed on the market at a small cost. 5
Other and further objects will appear as the device is set forth in detail in the description which follows.
To the particular construction herein shown and described the invention is not to be restricted. Certain desirable changes or alterations may be made manifest by the actual reduction to practice and the right is claimed to make any which do not deviate from the spirit of the appended claim.
In the accompanying drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective View of the invention.
Fig. 2 is a back plan View.
Fig. 3 is a section on the line 33 of Fig. 2.
Referring to the drawings, there is shown a plate 1 which is provided with screw holes 2 by means of which it may be attached to a wall or other place. The arms 3 are attached to the plate 1 in spaced relation to each other and at equal distances to either side of the central line passing through the holes 2. The arms 3 are divided as shown in the drawings so as to provide the sections 4 and 5 which blend together at the forward ends of the arms and terminate in a raised portion 6 which rises above the upper edges 7 of the sections 4. The arms are attached to the plate 1 by means of slots formed in the latter, the slots being so positioned that one will be provided for one end of each of the sections 4 and 5. The sections 4 and 5 are thus inserted through the slots and the ends of these sections which protrude through the plate are slit so as to leave the two portions 9 connected with the end of each section of the arms 8, these portions 9 of each section being turned down against the back of the plate 1 in opposite directions. When the plate 1 is screwed to the wall these turndown portions 9 are held between the plate and the wall and thus secure the arms 3 firmly in position.
- That the device forms a convenient supporting device for a broom is apparent. By inverting the broom so that the handle thereof may fall between the arms 3 and the body of the broom rest upon the upper edges 7 where the raised portions 6 retain it in place, the broom is conveniently supported on any wall to which the plate 1 with its attendant arms is attached.
The manner of attaching the arms to the plate is convenient in that it permits the device as a whole to be manufactured and handled in a knocked-down condition, the parts being assembled when the device is put into use. It is thus possible to more easily pack the device than if the arms were permanently attached to the plate and, while the attachment of the arms and the plate must be effected at the time of installation, this attachment of the parts is very easily made, as the foregoing description of assembly indicates.
The invention having been described, what is claimed as new and useful is:
A broom rack comprising a plate having means for attachment to a well and having slots formed therein adjacent its side edges, and a pair of arms divided so as to provide sections capable of entering the slots, said sections being united at their forward ends where projections rise above the upper edges of the upper section, the ends of the sections entering the slots being further divided, so that said divisions of each section may be bent down in opposite directions against the back of the plate, whereby when the plate is screwed to a wall the arms may be held rigidly attached therewith.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
J AGOB S. HORN.
